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,

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!

Welcome to the August Gathering around the Pond, Sunday August 2

You are not here
to shrink away from
your own greatness.
You are here to be YOU.
Nothing more.
But also, nothing less.
Remember, YOU are the lion,
and the world wants to hear you roar.”

We have entered the intensity of the Lion’s Gate energies, and I was guided to repost this message from three years ago. But these words also emerged this morning: “Sometimes, the loudest roar is a whisper.” Like many others, I have been called into the deep Silence. A silence that has no words, but speaks volumes. So much is shifting now, within and without. And the speed of everything is literally mind blowing. Guiding us even deeper into the wordless space of ALL there is.

This Sunday, August 2 at 21:00 / 9 PM Norway time (UTC +2), I invite you to join me in this “wordless space” for our August Gathering around the Pond. A 30 minute meditation, where we can sink into the nurturing waters of this Pond, and add our magnificent roars – or whispers – to the song of light that is gathering strength on this beautiful planet of ours. I am so looking forward to BEing there with you!

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

PS: I am planning to pick up the live online Gatherings after this summer.

Welcome to the July Gathering around the Pond Sunday July 5

Dear friends!
We have entered the month of July. Can you feel it? To me, it is as if everything and everyone are holding their breath. “Something is afoot” is what I hear when I tune into this silence. What a perfect time to come together for a Gathering around the Pond this upcoming Sunday! Not only will it be just after the time of the Full Moon, we also have a Lunar Eclipse that day. A very potent mix indeed!

Earlier this week, while visiting my parents, I was woken up at dawn by a blackbird singing on the roof. I just had to tape it. As an extra bonus, I also got the sound of a swan taking flight from the nearby bay. It was a magical experience, and a reminder of how LIFE is expanding and unfolding all around us.

Afterwards, these words came:

“Do not be fooled by the outward appearance of night.

For just as it is with any dawn,

the light might seem very distant just before it truly arrives in full.

And so too it is in this.

So join in the jubilant choir,

like the birds do every day.

They herald the dawn, no matter how dark it may seem

to the unseasoned eye.

But the heart knows, and the heart already sings.

So come on out and sing to your heart’s delight,

and feel how that helps shift the hearts of your fellow men.

This is not a silent dawn.

Rather, it is one roaring with light.

So much light in fact,

it might deafen your ears to its true impact.

So listen well, and you too will hear this wondrous song of light.

A song that penetrates all the way

into even the darkest of corners.”

I invite you to join me for a 30 minute “song of light” meditation at 21:00 Norway time (UTC +2) this Sunday July 5. Let us connect and “sing to our heart’s delight” so we can help to lighten the way for all those still standing in their own shadows.

With love and gratitude from me, Bente/Aisha

PS: This time, I will not be hosting an online Gathering, as I and some friends will have the Gathering here at our house.
