Choose the best wallet to contain wealth energy

I know this might sound strange or even superficial – for the Western reader –  to talk about the best feng shui wallet colors. Feng shui of your wallet colors? Come on now… Yet, if you just try to look at it from a pure energy perspective (translation: how it feels to you);  you will realize the importance of having your wallet in the absolutely best possible shape. Once you understand that everything around you is energy — and I mean understand on a genuine, experiential level, not just pure intellectual one — you might be surprised to discover that your wallet carries you even more than you carry your wallet!

It can tell stories about your attitude towards wealth and abundance, your openness to receive, your overall wealth, or abundance consciousness, your self-esteem, and more. I would like to share with you info on the feng shui of your wallet because feng shui is such a powerful energy system that can help remove blockages and transform stagnant or negative energy. So, if you are ready to go beyond stereotypes or pragmatic remarks — I hope you are, otherwise, why would you explore a feng shui website? — then read on.

I will give you the basic feng shui info on how to choose the best wallet; a wallet that can help you attract and keep the ever-flowing energy of wealth. Let’s start with the understanding that your wallet is the home for your money. If you have applied feng shui in your home, you know there are certain principles that just have to be respected in order to create good feng shui. The same basics will apply to your wallet – clutter-free energy, order, and beauty have to be present there for good feng shui.

I am sure you have seen many people whose wallets are bursting at the seams and overflowing with old receipts, photos, and cards that are rarely used. This speaks of poverty, scattered energy, fear and chaos, the exact opposite of the energy that is open and ready to receive wealth. So, be sure you have a clean and ordered wallet that is refreshed often, meaning keep it clean and fresh, do not “clog it” with items you do not need and be very mindful where you place your wallet overnight.

Having your wallet in the same secure, calm and safe place that can be easily reached is very important. You should be able to find your wallet, if needed, in a nick of time, and you should really enjoy its placement, as well as its look and feel, of course! This brings us to the second point – how to choose the best wallet for yourself. Along with the obvious basics such as having a spacious wallet, meaning choosing a wallet that can easily accommodate your needs plus have space for more (very important!), and having it made from a good quality material, how do you decide on the best color for your wallet?

Choose the best feng shui energy expressed in colors

Choosing the best colors for anything – from clothing to cars – is a very personal choice, of course, but since we are exploring it all from the feng shui perspective, there is something important you need to know. In feng shui, color is considered the strongest expression of specific energies, called feng shui elements. This is a complex subject, but I will make it easy for you.

How do you choose the best energy? You look at the suitability of specific colors (as expressions of elements) with your own personal element. Yes, you do have a personal feng shui element, too! Here are the 5 most popular colors for a good feng shui wallet, along with their energy meaning and suitability according to your personal energy.

Red Color

Red is a very auspicious color considered to attract wealth and abundance. The color of the Fire feng shui element with its illumination energy, red is often the favorite feng shui wallet color choice of many die-hard feng shui fans. However, red is a super-activating color, so be mindful that it can energize both your positive, as well as negative traits toward money. It is somewhat similar to burning the negative traits in a short and intense amount of time, so trust your better judgment and see if you are ready for a red wallet! Also note that a red color wallet can be an excellent choice for Fire feng shui element people, as well as Earth, but a bit too intense for Water, Wood, and Metal element people.

Deep Blue Color

Blue is the color of the Water feng shui element that is the ancient symbol of abundance; this makes blue a very good choice for an auspicious feng shui wallet. However, be mindful of how it works with your own energy. For example, if your personal energy — defined in feng shui as your birth element — is Fire or Metal, blue is not the best choice for you. On the other hand, if your birth feng shui element is Wood or Water, this can be an awesome choice!

Black Color

Black is also the color of the Water feng shui element, so it is an excellent choice for a wallet colour, especially for those with the birth element of Wood and Water (not so much for Fire, Metal or Earth element people).

Brown Color

Brown is probably the most popular wallet color (after black), as there are so many beautiful leather textures and natural color variations that make this choice very attractive. However, brown being an Earth feng shui element color, it might not be the best choice for those with the personal birth element/essence of Fire or Water. Excellent for Earth and Metal people, though!

Green Color

Green, being of the Wood feng shui element, is an excellent color choice for starting anew, for being ready to start fresh and open, no matter what stories your past holds. It is a great choice for the Wood birth element people, as well as for those with the Fire birth element.

Other Colors

Of course, you can find wallets in many more colors than just the 5 most popular ones listed here. From white to silver, gold and hot pink, as well as a combination of various patterns and textures, there are obviously so many attractive color choices out there!

Generally, the deeper the color, the stronger its protective energy (which you definitely want for your wallet.) So, choosing a red or deep pink wallet, for example, is always a better feng shui choice than choosing a white, tan or light pink color wallet. However, as with everything, it is a good idea to assimilate the guidelines by experimenting and see what feels right to you.

To sum it up, there are 3 things that make a good feng shui wallet:

1. Order
Carry only what you need and have a clear system.

2. Space
Always leave space for more.

3. Auspicious Energy
Choose the best colours and materials and take good care of your wallet.
