Feng Shui and purses

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
  • Size
  • Colour

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.

Next time round, I decided to do things the right way and used the Academy of Feng Shui software using the Chinese Ruler section of the software to decide what size was right for my new money clip and after than I took a trip to a local jewellers in town and had a look around although everything they had there, although nice, was not the right size so I took a look online and finally found a well priced, perfect sized clip and have been using it ever since. It may not have helped billions of pounds come in to my bank account although I do honestly believe that it has helped avoid problems in life.

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.

  1. Hello Daniel and congratulations for your work.

    I have a question, you might think it’s a silly one: the measure system is not regarding only purses, but everything in general. So if I measure a furniture, for exemple, and the height belongs to “Pi” and the width is in the “Hai” box, is it still not good to have the furniture, or is it just between the numbers on each box only?

    Thank you so much if you can answer me! Love your site!

    1. Hi Flavia,

      Thank you for your kind words and yioyr question is not silly at all. Feng Shui measurements apply to everything although it is very hard if not impossible to follow some times. If you had a desk that had a “pi” measurement height and a Hai measurement this would be considered bad. A good desk size would be 111cm wide (kwan) 84 (Pun) high and 91 deep (Chai) this would be perfect. To get all the dimensions falliug in an auspicious band is very hard.

      I hope this helps

      Kind regards
      Daniel

  2. Hi may I know it its bad luck to buy a preowned wallet? Saw one lv wallet on eBay n I\’m really in love with it.. The measurement is 5.1\” x 3.5\” . pls advice if I should get it or not

    1. Hi Pin,

      Personally, I would not recommend purchasing a second hand wallet as it is associated with another persons wealth and could have a lot of negative energy attached to it.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  3. Hello Daniel, for a square or rectangular shape, should we add up the measurements of the four sides or just making sure that both height and length are auspicious? What about round or oval shapes? Thank you, Elsa

    1. Hi Elsa,

      You would generally measure the width and a circular or oval shape would also be the width of the widest point 🙂

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

    1. Hi Durian,

      There are ways to get around this by measuring a folded wallet when extended although you would have to keep it open when at home.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  4. Hi Daniel, thank you for your reply.

    I had to get rid of a bag I bought last year as its measurements were on the not to buy list. No wonder I kept getting ill ever since I started using it.

    Thanks again!

    1. Hi Shinyi,

      You could measure both open and closed although your wallet spends most of the time closed so I would base it on this.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  5. I love reading your newsletters. They are so informative.
    Can you tell me if a Brown wallet is auspicious or not?
    Thank you.

    1. Hi Francis,

      Thank you for the positive feedback 🙂

      Brown wallets symbolise earth and can help attract wealth if stored in the south this year.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  6. Fascinating article. I love bringing all things into harmony. After reading this, I thought I could also apply this to a piece of clothing, such as a scarf that I might wear. Do you think this would also apply to something like that?
    Thank you for these insights.

    1. Hi Michele,

      Feng Shui measurements can be applied to absolutely everything so you can use these measurements to your hearts content 🙂

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  7. Hi, I\’m a bit confused by how to use the measurements, my current purse measures 18.5cm x 10cm. Is this lucky or not?

    1. HI Ann,

      This is a good size as the width indicates success in children and good fertility!

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  8. Thank you for this information. So, in Feng Shui, wallet/purse sizes are the same as picture frame sizes?

    1. Hi Maggie,

      These measurements apply to everything so you can use them to measure anything you want from a purse to a radio.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  9. Do the measurements pertain to a closed wallet/purse or open?
    What if the height is good but the width is bad and vica versa?

    1. It depends if you have the wallet open more than you do closed; if the measurement is better when open, leave it open when you are at home 🙂
      It would be quite hard to get a measurement that is good for both width and height so I\’d say to try and aim for at least one if you can.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

    1. Hi Anna,

      I would base the measurement on if you either have the wallet open or closed more but it will usually always be closed more than open unless you\’re a shopaholic!

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  10. Thank you so much for this guide! I will be keeping a copy of this and note the measurements for the next time I buy a purse/wallet.

    1. Hi Stephanie,

      That is a great purse as the size indicates success in children and good fertility and the colour is very good for wealth luck.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  11. hi my question is will you be doing purses and wallets? mine is light jade green, I do not have much money but happy for now as money is not everything if you can find other things to do. I also forgot to renew my purse but this I might well do after reading your article thanks Caroline.

    1. Hi Caroline,

      I have been looking in to this for a while now and will hopefully take the ideas and turn them in to reality this year. I\’ll keep you updated when the ball gets hopefully rolling 🙂

      Kind regards,
      Daniel
