Day 11 – Guiding Stones
Today we are going to use Rose Quartz and Obsidian with the body to remove stagnant energy and replace it with the swirling energy of compassion and care. Using our own intuition, we can guide ourselves to place the stones along the body or chakras that we feel need some extra attention (and sometimes this feels like a great tune up for all the chakras).
- Rose Quartz stone
- Obsidian Stone
- We begin with the obsidian and guide it from the top of the head and down the body. Asking it to grab and absorb any energy that is no longer serving you. Take a few minutes with this. By the time you get to your feet it may feel so much heavier – that is okay, you can put it in a bag of salt to clear the energy out (toss the salt when done!).
- Now we do the same thing, but with the Rose Quartz. We are asking it to lend its energy to the parts of use that need greater compassion, openness, healing, and care. In most instances I can feel the swirling energy of Rose Quartz penetrate where I need it the most.
Journal about your experience with this, if there are any spaces where you noticed that you spent longer amounts of time with either stone, and how the energy of each stone feels to you.
Preparing for Day 12
Each day there will be another (smaller) article detailing the current day and the next day, so if you are a planner like I am, you will have time to make the space.

Day 12– Use the Key
Welcome to the final day of the 12 Days of Selfcare! Today is unique in that it is a ritual with an outcome that only you will experience. It is an initiation, a beginning of leaning in and listening deeply to what we need in our selfcare repertoire.
- Writing Utensil
- Personal Oil
On your sheet of paper, you are going to draw a door. Make it as elaborate or as simple as you want. In the middle of the door, draw a keyhole. Using your personal oil, anoint the key and the keyhole on your paper. Hold the key in your hand. You are ready to begin.
As the final act of being initiated into using your own keys, take your key and push it through the keyhole in your drawing. Place the drawing and the key upon your altar or in a space that is sacred to you. Visit it each day for a few minutes to keep your focus on continuing to make selfcare a priority. You own the experience, you have the key to do so ~ Make it sacred, just like you.
Building it Up
This is a free series from Dark Goddess Collective and is a part of our December 2021 work. We believe that it is important to empower each other, this includes providing free information that provokes or encourages knowledge of self, of sovereignty, and that which builds intuition. Over the course of 12 days we will be building up a practice of selfcare that invites in the deeper knowledge of self and building up awareness of the importance of Full-hearted selfcare in our practices of magic.
We are building a network of Sovereigns too! Stay tuned!
