“15 Feng Shui Tips for Beginners”
SIt happens all the time, whenever I need something in my wallet, I can’t find it. Old receipts, expired cards, little pieces of gum paper, and lots of crap I’ve been somehow accumulating. Does this happen with you as well?
I bet it does. Wallets are supposed to carry money and cards and not all the junk that we keep sticking in it.
Besides this unpractical mess, it is also frustrating to be looking for your credit card while the cashier is waiting, rolling her/his eyes, especially if there is a line behind you.
However more important than that, if you’re a energy believer, is the fact that good vibes won’t happen in any messy space. Our wallets are not an exception to this rule.
Starting from the Feng Shui Bagua of your home to the way your wallet is organized, Feng Shui concepts can add a layer of mystical good energy that you will enjoy welcoming to your life.
Feng Shui Wallet
Feng Shui is a powerful energy system that can help transform stagnant or negative energy, removing blockages and facilitating the flow of good vibes.
According to Feng Shui, the opposite of a stuffy, old and messy wallet is to treat your wallet as a temple that holds and honors your money. It’s another Feng Shui way to attract wealth, prosperity and abundance.
Money is live energy that is created from another source of energy – work – and this cycle has to be respected and apretiatted.
Prosperity can start flowing from this mind set and your wallet will be another vehicle for your sense of gratitude and respect. It is a way to tell the Universe you’re grateful for the money you earn, for your good health to do so and for the tools you have to earn it.
Attracting good luck and wealth involves more than Feng Shui cures, you’ll need to frame your mind around it and believe it. Of course, even if you’re still a bit skeptical about these concepts, keeping a clean and neat wallet won’t hurt you. As it happens around the house, the more comfortable and at ease you feel with everyday items that you handle frequently, life becomes easier and good energy will flow around you.

Many of us don’t carry any money these days. However, just looking at some money in your wallet triggers your brain to feel that you’re financially resourceful. Ideally, keep $108 in cash. It’s a lucky number, according to Feng Shui. Keep the notes in a neat sequence.
According to a more traditional Feng Shui approach, you might be able to activate the energy of your wallet by keeping an auspicious amount of money in your wallet at all times. It is an amount of money that you won’t t spend. It is supposed to stay in a red envelope in your wallet (you can make it yourself).
The purpose of this is to protect and modulate how you spend and earn money. It will ensure that you always have the energy of wealth in your wallet. Choose your amount $9, $18, $27, $108 or more, preferably in new bills. Keep them neatly in the envelope.
