Fengshui Your Wallet

Wednesday, January 01, 2014

 As we usher in 2014 with hopes of making it the best year ever yet, here's some ways to get rid of the old and negative energy that you might be holding on without even realizing it.
What is Wallet Fengshui?
Its not some superstition or hocus-pocus method but rather, a way to cleanse the energy to welcome luck, health and prosperity. Fengshui (Wind Water) is the art of of arranging your environment/belongings so that energy or “chi” flows gently and smoothly through your home or business environment. Feng Shui is not a meditation practice, a religion, or a New Age cult.
Why Wallet?
One of the milestones when I was growing up was when I remember the first time I owned a wallet of my own. As I entered primary school, I had to use my pocket money to buy food or stationary so it was then when my mother decided that I should have a small wallet to keep my money safe. It was also drilled into me that a wallet is one of the most important things a person could own, as it contained our important cards and documents like our ID, credit cards or NETS cards. I have to admit Im quite paranoid with my wallet as I hate to think of the consequences if I ever lost mine. 
How Healthy is your relationship with your Wallet?
A wallet is not just an item that holds your cash and coin, but rather, - realize that most of us have a strong connection to our wallets, whether we like it or not. Make sure that its a healthy relationship as having a toxic relationship with your wallet might cause bad financial flow or even risk bad money luck. It sounds scary but its all very easy to cleanse and get rid of negative wallet energy to receive good luck for the new year to come!
Ways to Fengshui your Wallet
Here below are some short tips to hopefully bring some luck in the new year!
Condition of your wallet
A wallet should not look old, tired, spoiled or filled with rubbish. You dun have to buy an ultra-expensive wallet but it should look good and be made of good quality, at least. If its damaged but you are holding it on for keepsake purposes, I suggest you get a new wallet instead. Its great to start the year fresh!
Good colors for Wallets
When deciding to buy a wallet, choose something that you are comfortable with. Feel it, touch it and imagine how it would look like with your personal stuff in it. Some recommended colors for wallets are :
Black or dark blue correspond to the Water element of Feng Shui. 
Water is responsible for your wealth and prosperity. Black is traditionally considered to be the best color for a wallet.
White, grey, silver or gold are said to be responsible for stability and permanence and could infuse your financial affairs with these qualities. Gold is nearly always associated with luxury and wealth and will help to attract these into your life.
Red is the color of the Feng Shui Fire element. Red activates and energizes the positive flow of money into a wallet.
Green is the color of Feng Shui Wood element and represents growth and development. A green wallet will help to contribute positively to your financial situation.
Yellow or brown are associated with the Earth element of Feng Shui, and will add stability, reliability and confidence to your wealth building skills.

The first thing to do is to turn out your wallet and empty it. Remove receipts, old membership cards or expired vouchers. To attract money, you have to respect it and an old dirty, cluttered wallet will not do. Create a habit of cleaning out your wallet every weekend to get rid of non-useful stuff that might have accumulated throughout your busy work week. Try not to keep receipts in your wallet as they represent debt and money 'going out'. Personally I keep my receipts in a separate area in my bag and I remove it after I get home. It is not advisable to have too many credit cards as similarly, credit cards represent 'future' debt. I try to use mainly one credit card for my daily needs and keep the rest as a backup. If possible, try to use a debit card instead, or better, always use cash for your purchases.
Keep your money notes neat
One great tip is to always keep cash in your wallet. With technology and credit cards, a lot of us tend to swipe our purchases instead of using cash to pay. But your wallet should always have some money in it to represent welcoming wealth into your life. Keep the notes nice and neat and arrange them in order. You can keep a smaller amount eg. $50 if you are not comfortable carrying too much cash around but $100-$300 is usually a good amount to keep in your wallet. Never leave your wallet empty. It is said that people tend to feel insecure (subconsciously) without cash in their wallet, and insecurity is negative energy that we would like to leave behind in the 2013!
Separate Coins and Credit Cards/Discount/Membership Cards
Do not over-burden your wallet by keeping too many redundant cards in it, adding to clutter. Try to separate your coins into another coin purse, or make sure that you empty your coins frequently so that your wallet will not feel too 'heavy' and 'burdened'. Membership cards that you do not use frequently are also best kept in another card holder as they cause unnecessary baggage to your wallet. Remember, lighter is better!
Happy Thoughts
Last and not least, your wallet should be lovingly taken care of! Don't throw it around carelessly or leave it on the floor - "A purse on the floor is money out of the door." and always speak positively when you use your wallet! I can't start to tell you how many people hold their wallet and sigh, saying things like "I have no money" ~ Stop it! Positivity attracts positivity and negativity attracts negativity. So even if you are feeling disappointed at your current financial status, uplift yourself by motivating words like "Money will come to me soon" or "My wallet is abundant". After all, you should always make money work for you and not be a slave to money.
Hope you enjoyed reading these tips!
