Feng Shui Wallet Color: What the Color of Your Wallet Says About Your Wealth

Just as the colors we choose for our wardrobe can affect how people view us and also how we perform in certain situations, the color of our wallet reflects our thoughts about money and wealth. But the good news is, you can turn your wallet into a money magnet.

Feng Shui Your Wallet for Financial Freedom

If you've been reading my blog for a while, you know that your entire home or apartment, and especially your front entrance, stove and master bedroom, can affect your wealth and prosperity. I've also shown that what you put on your computer desktop can impact your money-making opportunities.

Using Feng Shui when you select and organize your wallet can also help you increase your income. Here's how.

Choosing a Wallet

Your wallet should be large enough to hold everything you need in terms of coins and paper money, with separate sections for each.

When you select a wallet, it doesn't have to cost a lot of money, but it should make you feel good. Creating wealth (and happiness, for that matter) is all about living a specific experience. Each time you take out your wallet, it should make you feel good. You shouldn't be ashamed of your wallet.

Many times, people find a wallet they like and use it until it begins falling apart. It's time to treat yourself to a new wallet, one that reflects your goals, who you are, and the positive experiences you want to create in your life.

What to Put (and Not to Put) In Your Wallet

Just as family photos don't belong in the master bedroom, they don't belong in your wallet, either. Your wallet's focus should be on money -- attracting it and holding on to it. Consider a digital photo keychain or keep photos on your smartphone or tablet, instead.

Don't keep receipts in your wallet, as these represent spending money, rather than acquiring it. Make time each night, or once a week, to empty your wallet of receipts, business cards and random scraps of paper you accumulate.

Some people believe you should limit the number of credit cards you carry in your wallet as credit cards represent debt. But credit cards may also represent wealth, since you need good credit and some level of income to obtain a card. You may not need to keep every single card you own in your wallet, but it's okay to keep the ones you use regularly, enjoy carrying, or want to have handy in an emergency.

If there is a high-end credit card you have that makes you feel proud to carry it, give that one a place of honor in your wallet and feel good about your financial life when you pull it out of your new wallet that makes you feel equally happy and secure.

Storing Your Wallet

Find a special place for your wallet -- perhaps a special basket in your entryway or a spot near your keys and coat -- and always place it there. When the money in your life feels secured and treasured, you will attract more of it.

Don't just toss your wallet on the kitchen table when you come home in the evening. You should always know where your wallet is when you need it, without having to hunt through your home or apartment or even think about it.

Make your comments as specific as possible so that others may benefit from you.

If you work from home, own your own business, or even pursue additional revenue streams after hours from home, as many people today do, your computer becomes your lifeline to additional income -- and, as such, it may help or hinder your efforts to become a money magnet.

If you work for someone else, the computer you use is also tied to your ability to make money. Shouldn't you treat your computer with care then?

7 Ways to Make Money Pursuing Your Life's Purpose

Many years ago, I discovered my passion was Feng Shui. I began offering consultations, and then started this blog to share my knowledge with a broader base. I began creating eBooks and other information products, all to help people find their true path. That's the amazing thing about living in the moment and finding your true life purpose. You become immediately and intensely inspired to help other people do the same thing. You want to share it with the world.

We've all heard the phrase “Do what you love and the money will follow.” We know that finding your passion is the way to profits, as a business  owner or an employee. But what if you've discovered your true passion, that one thing you'd do for free even if no one paid you -- and now you're not sure how to make money at it?

Here are a few ideas.

1. Find a job or start a business in the field. Love video games? You might consider becoming a designer or a tester. (Now that's the life for some people!) Love color and interior design? Either start your own business as an interior designer or work for a firm that provides that service. It's a very clear path from what you love to how you can make money.

But what if your passion is a particular sport? The chances of becoming a professional athlete as an adult, when you haven't spent your life working toward that goal, gone to college for your sport of choice, and been drafted by a pro team, are very slim. But you can pursue your passion in other ways.

2. Teach it. - If you can't be a professional athlete, you might decide to be a coach and mentor the next Tim Tebow. Or maybe you love guitar so you become a private teacher. The expression, “Those who can't do, teach,” isn't quite true. You need the skills to be able to teach it well. But someone with the gift to teach find a wonderful, rewarding career or business.

3. Write about it. - In the age of the Internet and self-publishing, it's easier than ever to write about your passion and garner thousands of readers very quickly. Whatever your passion, you can start a blog, write a book, and make money from your efforts.

4. Talk about it. - This is different from teaching; I'm talking about public speaking to large crowds at industry events, seminars, and even your local bookstore. Whatever your passion, everyone has a story to tell. Why not parlay your story into a successful career as a public speaker?

5. Sell products related to your passion. - Someone passionate about a sport may open a retail store or an ecommerce site selling the tools of the trade. Whatever you're passionate about, there are products related to it. And if there aren't? Why not invent some, and then sell them, while getting others to sell them, as well.

6. Make a difference with it. - Whether you think locally or, through the Internet, globally, you can create a strong community around your passion. Think of this not so much as nurturing your prospects, but as sharing your passion with others, and the money will come.

7. Do it all. - Many successful entrepreneurs today have successful blogs and info-products, teach classes at local colleges, offer their services as a public speaker, and provide consulting services. In addition, their website may have an ecommerce component where they sell products related to their passion, and most entrepreneurs devote time to helping those less fortunate, mentoring others, or nurturing a community around their passion. (Or all three.)

Writer Les Brown said, “Aim for the moon -- if you miss, you'll land amongst the stars!" It's especially true when you're thinking of business ideas that will permit you to follow your passion and share your life purpose with the world.
