Purses and wallets play a very important role when it comes to Feng Shui, especially where finances are concerned. With Feng Shui, you can have both auspicious and inauspicious measurements which also should be considered when purchasing a new wallet or purse as this is where the majority of your cash, receipts, change, credit and debit cards are kept the majority of the time so it is imperative that you do not have the vessel of your finances creating problems due to inauspicious measurements.
In this article, I have noted other things to consider when purchasing a new wallet or purse which I will tell you about below. When purchasing a wallet or purse, I would really recommend that you purchase one that is in line with an auspicious measurement, as we as Feng Shui users do all we can to make sure our home benefits from good Qi so why wouldn’t we do the same for something that houses our wealth?
When looking for a purse or wallet, there are only a few things to consider so hopefully we won’t be complicating things too much…
Cost – Now this one is not related to Feng Shui as such but is more of a saying that my dad has always said to me; ever since the days when I had pocket money to go get sweets and comics, my dad has always said that you should only spend as much as you can afford and not a penny more on the following things:
Your bed: You spend your life in two things… your bed or your shoes; if you’re not in your shoes, you’re in your bed so make sure you spend as much as you can afford on this.
Your shoes and clothes: If you’re not in your bed, you’re going to be in your shoes so make sure you get something you’re going to be comfortable in.
Your wallet: you’re going to need this when you buy your bed and your shoes and clothes.
Now, I don’t think my dad said it exactly like that but I’m sure it was pretty similar!
For the last two years, I have ditched my wallet and gone for a more alternative style and used a money clip; I have never really been to fond of wallets as they always tend to bulk my pockets out so I decided that a money clip to hold my notes and cards was the best option for me.
When I first started looking for a money clip, I didn’t consider that auspicious measurements would apply to this and jumped straight in to a purchase on eBay spending around £4.99 and a few days later, my new money clip arrived. I only ended up keeping this money clip for around two weeks as it actually ended up snapping due to the cheap material it was made of but the size of the money clip actually indicated financial loss, bad luck and legal issues; either way, I had the whole “I told you so” from my dad for the next few weeks.
Now its time to look at the most important factor when choosing a wallet or purse which is the different sizes of wallets and purses; which ones are good and which ones are bad. Different sizes can have different effects; I have listed these below up to 100cm as this also apples to filing folders, notepads, briefcases, handbags and other similar cases but you can use our Academy of Feng Shui software that we created which includes everything you need to know to perform a home or office consultation to running a whole Feng Shui consultation business which also includes our Chinese Ruler section which will tell you auspicious measurements from wallets to tables, televisions and so much more making sure you get your home or office as right as possible.
