One of the fun ways to use feng shui is to select a purse and wallet color to help you create more prosperity. There are a variety of colors that offer you a boost in income and opportunity, such as a new job or a promotion. If you simply want the color of success – and all the material rewards – that go with it, then there’s a color for that. The same is true for wallets, although one color in particular is an especially helpful energizer for money.
Don’t let your handbag and wallet suffer from a lack of energy. Give it a shot of success with the colors that will attract money and help you manifest more of everything in your life.
Color No. 1: Red. Wealth’s magic color.
When it comes to success, prestige and the color most associated with bright advancement, that color is beautiful, clear red. Red is a color that has the energy of fire and the sun.
In China and India red is the color of happiness. It’s also a color associated with love and romance, and the color that is most beneficial to women. In feng shui, red is the color of recognition, fame and a rise in prominence and the material possessions of success.
A beautiful black wallet is classic, but when you’re after serious money, your wallet needs to be red.
Red is the color of life (think of the blood in your veins) and is used to energize. When you want to lift the energy of a home, add red colors. To brighten up a figurine, add a red bow.
Red is a color of happy energy and having a red wallet is one of the best way to energize your life for wealth and income. Better still, having a red wallet in your handbag will energize your purse, too. If you carry a wallet that isn’t red, be sure to add something red inside your wallet to energize it.
Color No. 2: Black. The color of prestige.
For sheer financial power and the serious business of making money, there’s only one color that meets all the qualities of a power broker and that color is black. Think about the color of power cars – it’s the long black Rolls Royce, Mercedes or BMW that exudes prestige. The color black brings about the image of power, authority and sophistication, and in feng shui, black represents opportunity, wealth and prosperity.
Color No. 3: Blue. More money please.
If you’re looking for a job and steady source of income, true blue is the color for you. A navy or blue-colored purse will help you keep your sources of income intact – and growing. Look for a rich-looking navy bag with pretty hardware, especially gold-tone. This combination is both stunning and classic and perfect for stimulating a rising income, especially on job interviews.
Color No. 4: Pink. Bright, happy prosperity.
Want money to be FUN? If you can remember how happy you were when you got your allowance as a kid and ran right out to buy something, that’s what a pink purse is all about – having fun with money and enjoying it. Pink is merely a lighter version of red, so it has all the qualities red does but with a lighter, fun side. Red is the color of success, but pink is the color of having a good time with your income.
Color No. 5: White. It makes financial might.
The color white is often overlooked as a power color, but it shouldn’t be. White is the color of metal, and metal makes water, which is the element of money, career advancement and income. When you want to command attention, and attract windfalls and the support of influential people, a white handbag is the power bag to carry, especially if it’s outfitted with gold hardware. Accent on wealth.
Color No. 6: Gold. Go for it.
Purses with metal fittings and accents are another enhancement on most handbags. But should you choose silver or gold – or a silver or gold purse? Let’s look at these two colors more in depth. Gold and silver represent two different types of metal.
Silver is the cutting, small and sharp color that’s associated with scissors or a steak knife. It’s light is like the light of the moon, not a generated light like the sun, but the sun’s reflected light.
Because of its association with small metal, silver won’t activate your purse for wealth the way you may want. Bear in mind that small metal means small money.
For the big money, always go for the gold, the color of big metal.
Even if we know that silver-colored platinum is more expensive than gold, it’s gold that’s associated more with prestige. No one wants to win the platinum metal in the Olympics. That’s because we know that gold represents the pinnacle of achievement, so choose your wallet and handbag with those qualities in mind.
