how to feng shui your wallet (and purse!) for abundance, prosperity, and wealth (4 easy feng shui wallet tips anyone can use)
It’s no secret that most of us want more money in our lives – even if we won’t openly admit it!
One of the easiest things you can do to attract more wealth into your life, wallet, home, and bank account is to feng shui your wallet.
As with all things Feng Shui, any time you rearrange your space, you are signaling to the Universe that you are ready for change.
Keeping an orderly wallet and purse is one of the ways you can tell the Universe you are ready for more money.
When you feng shui your wallet, you are basically giving your money a beautiful place to stay, as well as circulating and clearing the Chi (energy) of your wallet & purse.
Four easy Feng Shui wallet tips to get you started:
Number one: Get rid of any old receipts, trash, gum, shopping lists, or anything else that has accumulated in your wallet or purse.
All Feng Shui cures begin with a good cleaning, and that means feng shui for your wallet and purse too!
I know my purse tends to collect odds and ends that have nothing to do with money, so one of the first things I do when I want to bring in more money is to clear out the clutter.
You want the experience of your wallet to be inspiring and fun, so that more money wants to be there!
Feng shui your wallet tip #2: Organize your paper money!
Straighten out all of the money, make sure it’s not folded or crammed in your wallet or laying in the bottom of your purse.
Organize the bills so they all face the same way.
Brownie points for organizing the amounts in order from least to greatest! 😉 If you don’t have any paper money – get some! Even $1 or $5 will help attract more money into your life.
Tip #3: Get a coin purse for change or remove the change from your wallet.
If you tend to lose coins in your car, wallet, or in the bottom of your purse, you should organize that too!
Get a coin purse or keep a special cup in your car to collect loose change.
Every few days, empty that change into a bowl at home.
You could also keep a pretty bowl next to your wallet or purse and empty your change into it every time you come home.
(Bonus: store those coins in the money area of your home or desk and watch them grow!)
4. If your wallet is broken or has holes in it, it’s time to get a new one!
Take a look at your current wallet. Is it in good shape? Do the zippers and snaps work correctly? Does it have holes, rips, or tears?
You want a good, solid foundation for your money, which means you don’t want it leaking out through a hole or falling out because the zipper is broken.
If your wallet isn’t in good shape, definitely consider buying a new one.
It doesn’t have to be expensive to be a good feng shui wallet. It just has to be in good condition!
What is the best feng shui wallet color to attract abundance?
Just an aside here: the best wallet color for feng shui is one that you LOVE.
Don’t buy a purple wallet just because some Feng Shui wallet tip told you to!
If you are buying a new wallet, buy one that makes you happy!
It is more important that you love it every time you see it than it is that it’s some “lucky color.”
That said, here are the feng shui wallet colors most experts would tell you to buy:
Red: Red is always the color of intensity, fire, and energy. If you want to stir up the energy and attract more money, red is always a good bet!
Purple: Purple is the color of abundance, and is associated with the money area of the bagua. Purple is also traditionally the color of opulence and royalty!
Green: Green is the color of growth because it’s associated with the wood element. Green signals new beginnings and reaching new heights!
Brown/Yellow/Earth tones: Earth tones signal financial stability, which is always good for money!
Blue/Black/Water tones: Water colors represent financial opportunity flowing your way.
5 Feng Shui your wallet tips (for extra credit 😉 )
Keep only one credit card in your wallet.
Credit cards = debt, and you’re trying to bring in more money, not more debt!
Put a crystal in your wallet or purse.
Three powerful feng shui crystals for wealth are pyrite, carnelian, and citrine. You only need a small one to up the abundance vibration of your wallet!
Keep a cinnamon stick in your wallet or purse.
Cinnamon attracts the energy of success, which is absolutely something you want if you want to increase your prosperity!
You can place a cinnamon stick in your wallet or keep a small sachet of cinnamon and switch it out about once a month or whenever it seems to need it.
Every time you clean out your wallet or purse, quickly smudge it with a sage wand.
Whenever you smudge your house, don’t forget to smudge your wallet too.
Clear out the stagnant money energy and make room for new, vibrant money energy!
Keep a money mantra in your wallet and repeat it to yourself whenever you spend money or open your wallet.
One of my favorites is: The more I spend, the faster it’s returned and multiplied.
What about tips to feng shui your purse?
While most of the feng shui wallet tips can also be applied to your purse, there are a few feng shui purse tips that are different. Such as:
How to feng shui your purse:
Rule #1: Don’t set your purse on the floor.
The floor is dirty and holds a lot of germs (especially in bathrooms!), so it’s considered unlucky to let it sit on the floor.
Rule #2: Keep it organized.
If you carry a large purse full of things, consider having a separate, smaller purse or wallet for just your money and coins.
It will help keep your money separate from the clutter, and it also helps organize your purse.
You can also take this a step further and buy an organizing insert for your purse to help you keep things tidy.
If you’re always digging around in your purse and you can’t easily find what you’re looking for – this is the tip for you!
Like with your wallet, you want your purse to be a happy experience in your life. So do whatever is necessary to make sure it’s a streamlined item in your life.
Feng shui your purse rule #3: Make sure it is in good shape, without holes, tears, broken zippers or snaps, or broken straps.
I know it’s easy to let this go and let our purses become almost like luggage, but I’m basically giving you permission to go out and buy a new one if you need to! 😉
So make sure that you still love your purse and that it’s in great condition.
Also consider: are you carrying around an old purse that doesn’t represent who you are anymore?
Just like our mindsets towards money affect how much money we have in our lives and what happens to it, carrying around a purse that doesn’t match your vision of yourself (or who you want to be) can also affect your money and opportunities in life.
Make sure your purse matches the current you (or who you aspire to be!)
For example: are you carrying a diaper bag full of items but your kids aren’t in diapers anymore?
Are you vegan now, but you’re carrying around a leather purse or wallet?
Do you see yourself as a girl boss completely in control of your business but you’re carrying around a purse that’s dirty or has holes in it, or is so full of junk that you can’t easily find your business cards?
In feng shui, everything counts!
And oftentimes what we are hanging onto is a direct metaphor for how things are going in our lives. Make sure you audit those metaphors often.
What’s the number one rule for how to feng shui your purse? KEEP IT DECLUTTERED!!
Make sure you throw out the old receipts, trash, gum wrappers (and old gum!) and anything else that tends to linger in your purse way longer than it should.
Maybe even add cleaning out your purse to your cleaning schedule so that you don’t forget.
Get rid of broken items or items you don’t use, like old lipsticks or broken sunglasses.
Carrying broken items around with you everywhere symbolizes that you don’t have the money (or time, or energy, or whatever it is) to replace them and it can easily extend to other areas.
How to Feng Shui Your Wallet: Q & A
What if you don’t carry a wallet or purse?
I actually don’t carry my wallet or purse very often.
I usually carry my cards or cash in my pockets, which are definitely easier to keep clean.
When I first learned about feng shui and how important it can be for money and abundance, what I did was create a money corner in my wealth area.
I have a tray where I keep my debit cards, my ID, and cash. When I leave the house that’s where I go to grab my things.
I also keep a few crystals in the tray, a feng shui wealth bowl, my keys, and anything else I need when I leave the house.
I make sure I keep the tray clean and organized. I also smudge it whenever I clean my money corner.
To me, it’s important that my money has a home that is clean and shows the Universe how much I appreciate it!
And the money box makes me happy every time I look at it, so it serves its purpose for me.
What does it mean in feng shui if you lose your wallet?
Losing your wallet doesn’t mean you have bad wallet feng shui!
Sometimes things just happen.
It could just mean that you are super busy and not paying enough attention to yourself and your needs.
But instead of beating yourself up over it, use this time to practice good wallet feng shui!
Buy a new wallet in a color you love!
Organize your new cards and ID.
Also brainstorm ways to make sure you don’t easily lose your wallet again.
Maybe you need a way to clip it to your belt or purse?
Maybe when you’re out and about you need to be more present and aware of everything that’s going on?
Instead of always multi-tasking, use the time to be present with what you’re doing. It’s okay to concentrate on one thing at a time!
Should you keep feng shui coins in your wallet for good luck?
That depends! If the idea of keeping feng shui coins in your wallet makes you feel abundant, you definitely can!
I recommend doing all of the other feng shui wallet tips FIRST, and then if you feel inspired to use feng shui coins, then try them.
But using feng shui coins in your wallet isn’t going to magically change your money situation if you haven’t done the other work.
Always start with the feng shui basics for your wallet FIRST. Then try the other tips!
In conclusion: there are many different ways you can feng shui your wallet. Just pick one or two and get ready to add more wealth and abundance to your life! 🙂
