Day 5 – Tattoo Touch Points
Creating personal sigils for increasing a certain energy in my auric field is a fabulous take on magic. It is even more fun when you craft more than one to use in conjunction with the others.
Today, light or turn your candle on. Close your eyes and breathe.
Breathe in through your nose for 5 seconds, hold it at the top for 2 seconds, and exhale for 7 seconds. Repeat 5 times.
Now think deeply about what energies you wish to increase. Let them come up for you, it may take a minute but they will come.
- Do you need positive energy?
- Do you need comfort?
- Do you need to connect with others meaningfully?
- Do you need to release or repel energy that you notice doesn’t belong to you?
Open your eyes. Pick one or two that come forward clearly and channel the energy into a sigil on the inside of each wrist.
Imagine that it is creating a force field of energy surrounding you with exactly what you need. If during the day you feel you need an extra boost, just touch each one to activate the intensity.
Before bed, use your journal to describe how this impacted your day. Could you tell a difference in the way you were able to connect to certain energies?
Preparing for Day 6
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 6 – Find Your Rhythm
As we find ourselves coursing through the days, there are some days that require a little extra motivation and spirited connection to self. Today is that day. Sometimes we forget that sound and certain vibrations are powerful, especially those of our own bodies in movement.
Spend some time searching your playlists or play the Find The Movement of Soul game to find a song that moves you to dance. Even slowly. The one that gives you tingles, gives you chills, or makes you want to sing along.
Find The Movement of Soul is to put on an unknown playlist or music station in the background and wait for the right one to come on. I have done this a lot and it always works. It may take an hour but then something plays that brings movement to my whole body!
Examples that I have found using the game above (I don’t recommend for little ears on some of these):
- Days to Come – Seven Lions Featuring Fiora
- Awaken Me – Abbi Spinner McBride
- Blood in the Cut – K Flay (not kid friendly)
- Rún- Skald
- A Little Wicked – Valerie Broussard
- Mi Guapo – Bebe
- Desire – Meg Myers (not kid safe, this is more a reclaiming of sexual energy)
- Deep End – Ruelle
- Horns – Bryce Fox
- Angry Too – Lola Blanc (not kid safe)
Before bed, use your journal to describe how this impacted your day. Could you tell a difference in the way you were able to connect to your body during the day?
Building it Up
This is a free series from Dark Goddesses 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.
A candle & a key, With Darkest Gratitude,
