A short update on the energies

The greatness of Spirit

lies hidden behind

the shroud of Self denial.

You are so much more

than what you give yourself credit for.

No more can you be hiding yourself

from the gift that is you.

A gift that you are here to share freely with the world.

But most of all, with yourself.


Message from the October Gathering around the Pond

Dear friends! Thank you for this very special Gathering! For me, it took place outdoors. We lit a fire, and brought out our drums. The ceremony started almost an hour before the Gathering itself, the drums wanted to be played almost non stop well into the meditation. It was a deeply felt experience, sitting under the darkening skies, looking into the flames. After a while, the Moon emerged, casting an almost iridescent light on the clouds. I could feel the connection between us, you were all very present around the fire, as was a whole host of other beings. The Ancient ones as well as our Star families. The vibration from the drums called me to start toning and singing, and after a while, also to begin to move. First my feet, then my whole body. I saw us all slowly moving around in a circle, doing a ceremonial dance. It was as if our feet were turning Mother Earth herself into a giant drum, sending out deep vibrations far and wide. Afterwards, these words emerged:

“The unshakable core within in you

is what is shaking up the ground beneath your feet.

Nothing will be left standing

that no longer supports you in your journey.

But know this;

you are growing stronger by the minute

as the dross of yesteryear is being lifted off of you.

Because you are the ones doing the lifting.

You are the ones liberating yourselves from all of the old drama

and as such,

you are the ones gifting yourself with a new Terra Firma

upon which to build the life you have come here to live.”

Thank you again for adding your very special vibration to this Gathering! Love, light and gratitude from me, Bente / Aisha ❤ ❤

Welcome to the October Gathering around the Pond, Sunday October 4

Dear friends!
Once again we stand before a vibrant, new month. A month that starts and ends with a full moon. A month where it seems a lot of dust will be kicked up by all those still trying to obscure the light that is already so present on this planet. For the light keeps pouring in, and with it, comes a frequency meant to literally shake up whatever needs to be shifted. I am looking forward to BE with all of you for our Gathering this Sunday. As ONE, we can light up the path for those who have a hard time navigating through all of the chaos and confusion out there:

“Incandescent light

is emerging from your core.

Do not be fazed by your own powers,

for you are indeed a beautiful force of nature.

You are not here to dim yourself down.

Rather, you are here to shine as brightly as you can,

letting your true star quality come through.

So allow yourself to shine, stand tall and true to your calling.

That way, you will guide those still faltering on their own path,

helping them find their way back home.”

My sister and I have been on a journey through the Norwegian mountains these last few days. I have never seen the fall colours as vibrant as this ever before.

For this upcoming Gathering, I have been guided to hold a drum ceremony with my sisters for the Gathering at 21:00/ 9 PM my time (UTC + 2). This means I will not be hosting an online meditation this month. If you have a drum and feel called to do so, I do hope you will bring it to this Gathering too. Please feel free to add whatever speaks to you to this Gathering, allowing your very own “star quality” to shine through ! Looking forward to seeing you all shine brightly this Sunday.

With love and gratitude from me, Bente/Aisha ❤

The drums of time – Equinox message

It is written in your bones.

Not as a destiny,

but as a multiple of choices.

Allow it to emerge

in this silent, pregnant pause

between what was and what will be.

Hear the drums of time.

Let them play you.

Let them be played by you.

Shake yourself fully awake.

For you are here to make everything happen.

Not by coincidence.

But by choice.

This is a short clip from the drum ceremony we had here in Stavika for the September Full Moon.

A short update on the energies

Inconspicuous, yet fully present, She emerges.

Robed in verdant green.

Earth. Mother.

A frail shroud of forgetfulness

masks her true identity.

Not yet fully appreciated.

She waits.

Knowing that when you finally awaken, Her time will come.

The time of becoming.


With every one and every thing.

Still, you hold back.

From yourselves. And from Her.

Soften, dear ones.

Allow Her presence to fill you up.

That is the only way you can find your way home.

To you.



Message from the September Gathering around the Pond

Dear brothers and sisters! Thank you all for the energy you brought to yesterday’s Gathering. For me, it was a deeply personal experience as well as a collective one. As I guided us in, I saw us entering the calm waters of the Pond. We drifted slowly down to the bottom. There, in the depths, I saw the whole expanse of the Pond floor covered by immense crystal clusters. They were clear, like perfect quartz crystals, and they were glowing with a whitish light. I heard the word “amplifiers”, and that these crystals would “redistribute” the light that we anchored in. During the meditation, this message came through:

“Go deep, deeper than ever before.

Connect with the vibrating cone of light

shimmering there in the deepest recesses of your soul

and speak out loud.

For you have a voice, a voice that at some times may feel as if it is faltering.

But this is your true voice. It may be an untried voice.

But it wants to be used.

So sing out loud

in a joyful vibration that will shake others awake

and alive in every single cell.

Feel the connection that goes from your heart center

and out into this shimmering void.

This empty space that longs to be filled

with the love that they have missed for such a long time,

where fear has taken the place of love in the hearts of so many others.

So sing the song of freedom loud and clear

so they too can hear it

and shake themselves awake and join in this jubilant choir.

For you set the tone, you set the pace.

So go forth, and spread a little happiness

with every step you take, with every breath you take.

Gather yourself, and then, simply sing.

And so it is, and so it will be.”

Your true voice can be many things. For me, it is also this; singing out loud in colours.

Thank you for BEing here, and for adding your voice to this jubilant choir!

With love, light and gratitude from me, Bente/Aisha


Welcome to the September Gathering around the Pond, Sunday September 6

Dear friends! We have entered the energies of September, kicking off with the Full Moon. Can you feel the anticipation in the air? The sense of awakening? Here, autumn is slowly moving in, but the energies feel in so many ways like spring. As if so much is waiting – and wanting – to be born. This is also reflected in the message that I received for our upcoming Gathering:

You are the singer and the song.

A cosmic tune humming

itself into life.

Again and again.

Sending out your cascade of notes

you set so many others astir,

helping them tune in to their own true vibration.

I am so looking forward to our connection this Sunday September 6, at 21:00/ 9 PM my time (Norway, UTC + 2). This Gathering around the Pond will be all about “humming” as much light as possible out into the collective. So many out there are starting to feel the push, the firm but gentle invitation to shift away from the old and into the new. The New can be daunting, because it means diving into the unknown. So let us give them something to navigate by. A humming, vibrating beacon of light that will help them feel they are not alone.

This Sunday, I will be doing the Gathering live online on Zoom. I love having the opportunity to BE together in this way! I will open the Zoom room a few minutes before the hour, and I will guide us all into a 30 minutes meditation. Usually, a short message comes through during the meditation. If you feel like joining me, just send me a message or fill out the form below, and I will send you the Zoom link on email later in the week.

The online Gathering is donation-based. If you want to support my work, you can use this link. Thank you, every donation is very appreciated!

I am so looking forward to connecting with you once again. Let us “sing our song” loud and clear!

With love and gratitude from me, Bente/Aisha

Celebrating freedom

Dear brothers and sisters!
Exactly nine years ago, on August 16. 2011, I set myself free from my old life. That day, the very first installment of what would expand into The Manuscript of Survival arrived. Very unexpected, to say the least. I had received a number of short channeled messages over a couple of years, but they more or less said the same; they were meant to “prepare me for something important.” At the time, I was a self-employed graphic designer. I remember it was a Monday, and I sat down to work as usual. But I could feel that a message wanted to come through. So I just opened myself to it. And there it was. I just knew it, with all of my heart, that THIS was what I was meant to do. So I sent a message to all of my clients, telling them that I could no longer work for them, because I had just taken on a huge writing assignment.

My life has changed so much since then. I have lost count of the number of messages I have channeled. In addition to the written ones, I have also channeled literally hundreds of paintings. The paintings started to come in the spring of 2015, just before I was given what would be the last written message that was to be shared in this space. That is, until I was guided to re-open it again this spring. (Some of these paintings, and later, the words that came to accompany them, I shared on my other blog, https://aishanorthwaterspeaks.wordpress.com/.)

As I sit here and think back on these last nine years, I am filled with a deep gratitude. Towards myself, for daring to leap into the unknown. Again and again. And towards every single one of you. Thank you for sharing so much of yourself. Thank you for all the love, support and light you have gifted me with. Thank you for accompanying me on this amazing journey! Without you, this space would never have sprung into full life. The Pond would never have been born.

This message is my gift to all of you on this very special day. Thank you for daring to fly, and thank you for helping me continue to do the same. May we all feel the wind filling our wings in the time ahead! With love, light and gratitude from me, Bente/Aisha

“The incandescent light of joy

cannot be contained.

Nor can your freedom.

Unfettered by any outside rules or regulations,

you are free to roam.

So go wherever your imagination takes you.

Your inner landscape is limitless.

Take to your wings, dear ones.

You are here to fly,

not to hold yourself back.

For it is only your mind

that can weigh you down.”

I also had to share this. It is the very first channeled painting that came through, back in 2015.





Morning message 08.08

Dear friends! I woke up earlier than usual this morning, and was called down to the beach. As I watched the tide softly withdrawing, these words emerged:

“Remember dear ones, life is always changing.

Just like the tide.

Sometimes rolling in, other times softly withdrawing.

So allow yourself to feel deeply into this pulse,

this rhythmic beating heart of Mother Earth.

Sink into Her rhythm, just BE in that space

and know that all is well.

No matter how things may appear on the surface.

There, in the stillness, life continues on.

Every single second.

So be still, and know that you are still moving

in your right direction.

With every breath, you take a new step

into the unknown, into the new.

So allow all of this New to reveal itself to you.

Just like the tide reveals new land every single day.

And so it is.

And so it will be.


May you all have a blessed Lion’s Gate weekend!
