A dear friend of mine is an entrepreneur who often complained about feeling financially blocked. One day while talking about her bills, she pulled out her wallet to pay for something. I gasped when I glanced at it. She was carrying around a tattered wristlet filled to the brim with credit cards, coins, crumpled receipts, lip gloss and God knows what else. My immediate response was, “If you want to clean up your finances, you must clean up your wallet!”

One day later she texted me a picture of her shiny new red wallet, each section perfectly organized. Within two weeks her business was back in action; deals that had been held up for months were closing. I believe the difference was the wallet. Once she had her personal money in order, she cleared subconscious blocks and was able to move freely and with ease in any situation related to finances or business.
Do you feel blocked financially? Is it far too often that the deal doesn’t go through, the job doesn’t work out, or you don’t have enough money? Many times, a financial block stems from an energetic block. Remember, energy is in everything, even your wallet. For the sake of your finances and our economy, let’s clean up your wallet to clear your energetic connection to receiving.
If your wallet is beaten up or overstuffed, buy a new one that’s clean, beautiful and can hold all you need to carry. Your wallet reflects your relationship to money. Is it ripped and filled with old receipts? Is it old and dirty? A wallet isn’t just an accessory. It’s where you store your money; make sure you love it! Don’t be reluctant to invest in one that makes you feel good.
Not only will your new, clean wallet energetically support you, it will also make a statement to the universe that you are ready to receive. Respect your money and your money will respect you.
In the red? Choose a red wallet
When picking out a new wallet, be mindful of its color. In the feng shui tradition, certain colors welcome abundance, such as gold, red and green. Bust out the sparkly gold or the radiant red. Go big or go home with this one. Feng shui expert Kate MacKinnon says, “Like everything in feng shui, the most important way to make space is to clear clutter. So make sure your wallet is clear of clutter (paper, receipts, etc.) and organized.”
