My favorite position. I remember feeling truly beautiful and how much I shivered with pleasure when I came down. I held onto this warmth because in the upcoming weeks, it was all going to hit me. But in this moment, I didn't want to face it all so I surrendered to the earth and the air while the blood flowed.
Summer Solstice, 2015

I've been learning so much about myself at #oslosuscon this week and if Tuesday was about transcendence, Thursday was definitely a lesson about stubbornness. Everyone jokes about what a pain tank I seem to be but honestly it's about pushing my body, stubbornness, and ego. From tit nailing, to lip sewing, to being severely whipped, I've always had the philosophy that if I put my mind to something difficult, it will be done. Pain for me is usually just a concept and if you analyze why you're in pain, why it hurts, what's the big deal, focus on your breathing, and a bunch of other hippy bs then you can typically overcome almost all voluntary pain. Yesterday wasn't that case though and was definitely a lesson in humility. While I'm not competing against anyone but myself, I also need to learn that while my mind may think I can do anything, my body certainly has other opinions! I struggled to get into the resurrection despite the comforting encouragements of my friends and after what felt like hours of struggling had to tap out without fully suspending. I was so angry with myself. I've done crazy things - why is THIS what's kicking my ass? Why does everyone else look so peaceful in this pose? Why can't I find peace in certain positions? I wasn't beating myself up but I was definitely disappointed. Ivy pointed out that this wasn't a defeat though - it was a learning processes. I've learned that suspensions with less points are obviously going to be challenging, and for me personally, any suspension position that compresses or inhibits my breathing makes it hard for me to focus on the overall "letting go" process. If I'm trying to figure out how to let go of my pain, maneuver my body, and focus on peace, the last thing I want to think about is how to adjust my breathing if I'm in a compressed position - it just ends up pissing me off more than anything! Lol. I'm so so grateful to Alex, Maria, Martine, Christina, Ivy and just everyone there for their unending patience, love, and support. This was such an amazing week and every suspension has been a lesson I'll be carrying with me moving forward. #hooksuspension #HookGoals #ressurectionsuspension #oslosuscon2017

My 3rd time suspending. 15/10 the best experience of my life I have no words for how happy I am for myself. Absolutely the best feeling ever, the process getting up in the air is hell but it's worth all the pain. I'm so emotional in the best possible way :') BIG THANK YOU TO @skynthesis.suspension for hooking me today. 🖤 #bodysuspension #hooksuspension

Noticed that I don't have this pic on instagram. It's from last years midsummer suspension with supersankari suspension team.
