Last week we discussed how to Feng Shui your wallet in this two-part series. Now we will discuss how to Feng Shui your purse. Doing so is an excellent habit for attracting wealth and creating stability in your life. As a professional Feng Shui consultant, I often see purses being neglected and treated as a last thought which is heartbreaking because there is so much untapped potential. Purses are crucial to our everyday life and should be treated with the importance that it deserves. And when combined with Feng Shui, it becomes a powerful tool in manifesting.
Symbolism of the Purse and Why It’s Important
Our purse is a precious part of our life. It contains our cellphones, wallets, important documents, calendars, and more. Alot of women I know call it ‘their entire life.’ And it’s so true because it has all of this important information about us that we would be lost without. My question is – if our purse is so important to us, why is it the last thing on our list to be Feng Shui’ed? In Feng Shui, our purse has immense untapped potential. It is an important piece of our life that can be used to attract abundance, luck, and desired opportunities.
The Importance of Cleaning Your Purse
As mentioned in last week’s article, well-maintaining your purse is essential to keeping it aligned with the energy of abundance. Clutter represents stagnant energy which blocks abundance in all areas of life but especially wealth. So, it is crucial to keep your purse clutter free by removing receipts, wrappers, excess items, and anything else that is not necessary.
Another important practice is organization. Organizing a purse is not much different from the organization of a room. It still has the same pillars of the practice which are compartments, keeping it clutter-free, and everything returns to the place it belongs.
First off, compartments can be created with the pre-existing purse designs (Ex. utilizing pockets and sections) or by diy'ing with purse dividers to avoid bottomless-pit-purse-syndrome. When you have the chance to customize your purse; you can make your space unique to your needs. For example, when purse shopping my daughter always ensures that there is enough space for a book.
Secondly, organization also needs a clutter-free environment to thrive as previously mentioned. When the clutter is gone, it makes it easier to see all that you have and find it when needed.
Finally, adopt the habit of returning everything you use to its rightful place. It can be easy to just throw everything you use into your purse because you know it’s already a bottomless pit. But by creating a system that keeps everything you own right in front of you and organized, you can easily find where it’s supposed to go. To explain, instead of throwing your lipstick into your purse, make sure to put it back in your makeup bag every time. Or always keep your sunglasses in your front pocket to avoid searching for it every time the sun hits.
Cleaning your purse doesn’t have to be a scary weekly practice. You can make your purse work for you by establishing a system that makes Feng Shui’ing effortless.
Feng Shui Cures for Your Purse
Now that we’ve covered Feng Shui cures for your wallet, we can move onto specific cures for your purse that won’t add clutter.
For all my crystal-lovers, this one is for you. Crystals each have unique spiritual properties that can be utilized to create your dream life. In this circumstance, you can use the power of crystals to amplify positive energy in your purse. Some specific crystals that are a great addition to your purse would be green aventurine or tiger’s eye but always remember that clear quartz can represent any crystals when needed. Also important to note, keep your crystals organized by not letting them be loose in your purse, instead keep them in a small pocket or in a tie bag.
Another great Feng Shui cure is to frequently energetically cleanse your purse. Just as often as we cleanse our home, we should be cleansing our purse because not only is it picking up on energy from our home but also every other place it has been with us. Think about how many different energies you might be bringing home! Ideally cleanse your purse once a week by smudging, doing a salt burn, using Reiki, or sending loving energy to it.
Finally, show your purse respect. By showing your purse respect you are acknowledging it’s power and establishing an energetic relationship. Respect looks like well-maintaining it, cleaning, not leaving it on the floor, and not kicking it. Using Feng Shui cures is an easy way to not only show your purse some love but also to enhance abundance in your life.
Your purse is the center for your life. It keeps all of your important documents and acts as a powerhouse for the wealth in your life.
