It is said that every 7 years you become a new person. That every part of you is brand new and you are not who you used to be.

I just turned 27 last month. Next year is the official start of my Saturn Return at age 28, a multiple of 7.

I have been feeling since the end of last year an intense birthing of my new self. Everything in my life has changed drastically as I have shed layers of unconscious behavior and toxicity that threatened to snuff out my light. In the darkness, I chose myself. I will always choose myself. I am valuable. I am a goddess. A queen. I am embracing my shadows as well as my light, knowing that it is the shadow that defines the light. I am born again.

For those of you who know me personally, I am going to be responding to “Carmen” less and less. That is not the frequency I am vibrating on anymore. I am Ynanna.

Ynanna is my spelling of Inanna, the Sumerian goddess of love, fertility and warfare. Inanna is the Queen of Heaven and Earth. She is the embodiment of all the phases and parts of feminine energy and is one of the oldest myths that has remained intact before patriarchy took hold. It is also one of the stories the whole resurrection of Jesus was taken from. Her most famous myth is a metaphor for the ultimate spiritual initiation into wisdom, expanded consciousness, and adulthood, in which one willingly faces their shadows and their demons, to embrace both sides of them and be complete and stand in their power.
