How to Wear a Feng Shui Pixiu Bracelet

 

UPDATE: The guide, “How to Wear a Feng Shui Pixiu Bracelet,” was first published on January 20, 2020. Due to a huge number of inquiries, we are updating the article to answer your frequently asked questions.

 

Do you feel confused about which hand you should wear your Pixiu bracelet?

Is it your right hand or your left hand? Is it your dominant hand or your non-dominant hand?

Here at Inner Wisdom Store, we will clear the confusion on this issue once and for all. Below, learn the correct way to wear and activate your Pixiu bracelet according to feng shui bracelet rules so you can maximize its full powers.

 

 

Which Hand to Wear Your Feng Shui Pixiu Bracelet

The Pixiu bracelet is best worn on your non-dominant hand. In most cases, the non-dominant hand is the left hand.

Why is that?

The non-dominant hand is considered the receptive hand in feng shui. The receptive hand is the hand that absorbs wealth chi (wealth energy) into our bodies.

When the bracelet absorbs the wealth chi through your receptive hand, you are inviting good fortune into your life.

That’s why you’ll find most references saying to wear the Piyao bracelet on your left hand because it’s usually the non-dominant hand. Therefore, it’s the receptive hand.

Meanwhile, the dominant hand is known as the projective hand. It is the hand we use to give away energy. For most people, their dominant hand is their right hand.

 

What If My Non-Dominant Hand is My Right Hand?

As we explained, the Pixiu wealth bracelet is best worn on your non-dominant hand.

Whether it is your left hand or right hand, as long as you wear the bracelet on your non-dominant hand, you get to maximize its chi-absorbing properties.

 

How to Activate Your Pixiu Bracelet

how to activate pixiu bracelet

Aside from knowing which hand to wear the bracelet, you also have to take a few more steps to activate Pixiu. Here's how:

 

First, cleanse the Pixiu charm before wearing it.

Chances areyour bracelet must have come from another person before it became yours. Cleanse it with water, moonlight, sage, or salt to remove traces of its previous owner and recharge its vibrations.

 

Second, wear the bracelet on your non-dominant (receptive) hand.

As explained above, your receptive hand is the non-dominant hand. Also, make sure that Pi Xiu's head is facing outward, toward the direction of your little finger. This allows the creature to draw money from all directions.

 

Then, touch Pixiu’s body frequently.

Touching Pixiu's body lets the creature know that you’re its master and that you’re taking good care of it.

 

Finally, wear the bracelet for as long as you can.

However, the exception here is when you’re sleeping, going to the toilet, or doing some “private” business. You must treat this creature with respect or else it will abandon you.

     

    Top 11 Feng Shui Bracelet Rules You Should Remember

    how to wear pixiu bracelet

    In this section, we’ll answer some of your most common questions about the Pixiu bracelet. Discover the dos and don’ts of wearing this feng shui bracelet below.

     

    1. Who can wear a Pixiu bracelet?

    Anyone aged between 16 to 70 can wear the bracelet, regardless of your zodiac sign. However, if you are below 16 or over the age of 70, or if you are pregnant, be careful wearing the charm because Piyao’s energy can be very strong that it could affect you.

    But if you are over 70 and have an active lifestyle, or you meditate daily, this wealth bracelet is also for you.

     

    2. Which hand to wear the Pixiu bracelet?

    Wear the Pixiu bracelet on your non-dominant hand, which is considered the receiving hand.

     

    3. Pixiu bracelet facing direction

    Wear the bracelet so that Pi Xiu's head is facing outward, toward the direction of your little finger. This lets the creature draw money from all directions.

     

    4. How long should I wear it?

    Wear the bracelet for a long time the first time you acquire it. This builds your bond with Piyao, ensuring that it sees you as its master.

     

    5. How should I take care of Piyao bracelet?

    Touch the Pixiu frequently to know that you are its master. The more you touch it, the more it knows that you are taking good care of it.

    However, avoid touching its eyes and mouth. Pi Yao uses its eyes for hunting while it uses its mouth for bringing wealth. Also, don’t let other people touch the creature so it remains loyal to you.

     

    6. Can I wear Pixiu to sleep?

    No. Remove the charm when you are sleeping. Pixiu can be too aggressive that it can cause nightmares or disturbances in your sleep.

    Also, remove it when you’re going to the toilet or making love. This creature is incompatible with impure things. Show Pixiu the same respect you give to your friends so it will serve you well.

     

    7. Where should I place it when I am not wearing it?

    Place your bracelet in the living room if you are not wearing it for a long time. Make sure the head is facing toward the door or window to attract money.

    If removing for a short time, you can place it anywhere except on the floor.

     

    8. How do I cleanse Pixiu?

    Cleanse Piyao with running water. Do this when other people touched the amulet, or if it has been contaminated with blood.

    Also, cleanse Pixiu with moonlight, sage, or salt, before wearing it for the first time. You also need to cleanse it when it’s feeling heavy or dull, which means it has accumulated too much negative energy.

     

    9. Can I wear other feng shui bracelets while wearing Pixiu?

    A metal Pixiu alone should be fine with other bracelets. However, always consider the crystal beads strung with your accessory. Certain crystal jewelry like the feng shui black obsidian bracelet possess strong energy that may clash with other stones.

    It’s advised to check the properties of your crystal bracelets for the best results.

     

    10. How to choose a Pixiu bracelet?

    Piyao wealth bracelets come in various materials such as obsidian jewelry, jade, tiger's eye, agate, or citrine. Each material contains specific energies that inspire various effects.

    When choosing the right Pi Xiu bracelet, consider the effects that you’ll benefit from the most.

     

    11. What should I do if my Piyao bracelet breaks?

    Pack the broken charm in a red cloth and bury it to return it to nature.

    If your Pi Yao bracelet breaks, it means it has already served its purpose. Piyao is a creature that protects its master from evil spirits, bad luck, and misfortune. If it suddenly falls, it has successfully warded off the negative energies that are threatening to harm you.

       

      How Do You Wear a Double Pixiu Bracelet?

      how do you wear a double pixiu bracelet?

      The Double Pixiu Bracelet is a variation of the original feng shui bracelet. The same rule applies: wear your double Pixiu bracelet on your non-dominant hand for as long as you can.

      Be sure to cleanse the accessory before and after some time wearing it.

      Also, touch both Pixius’ bodies frequently but avoid their eyes and mouths. Then, remove the accessory when you’re sleeping, going to the bathroom, or making love.

       

      Pixiu Bracelet Meaning

      how to wear pixiu bracelet

      In feng shui, a Pixiu bracelet is used to attract, acquire, and preserve wealth.

      Originating from Chinese legends, Pixiu is a mythical creature with the head of a dragon, the body of a horse, the horn of a deer, and the foot of a Qilin. Also known as Piyao (often stylized as Pi Xiu or Pi Yao), this beast is said to resemble a winged lion too.

      Piyao is known for having a voracious appetite. However, it can only feed on treasures such as gold, silver, and jewels.

      When this creature defecated on the floor of Heaven, it violated a sacred law. Hence, it was punished by the Jade Emperor.

      The Jade Emperor spanked the creature so hard that it sealed its anus. Now, it can’t expel the treasures it eats. This led to the belief that Pixiu won’t allow wealth to leave one’s home, becoming a symbol that protects and attracts fortune.

      Hence, many consider Pixiu as one of the best feng shui bracelets for wealth today.

       

      Benefits of Wearing the Pixiu Bracelet

      pixiu bracelet benefits

      Many believed that wearing this symbol helps attract money luck and protect you against negative energy. Here are some ways the Pixiu bracelet benefits you.

       

      Gain and Preserve Wealth

      Ancient Chinese beliefs say that displaying Pi Xiu in homes and business establishments helps attract wealth. Also, having both the male and female types of Pixiu helps preserve your riches.

       

      Improve Fortune

      It is believed that frequently touching the Pixiu charm may improve one’s fortune. Doing so may also rotate profits and speed up promotion. This works best for people who are in a bad financial situation and need to attract money.

       

      Ward Off Negative Energy & Evil Spirits

      Pixiu is not only a wealth bracelet. It is also one of the best feng shui protection bracelets now. In fact, Piyao is the only known feng shui cure that can appease the wrath of Tai Sui. Tai Sui is the god in charge of your fate that can inflict bad luck and misfortune when you offend it.

       

      Observe the Proper Ways of Wearing a Feng Shui Pixiu Bracelet

      To obtain the benefits of the Pixiu bracelet, you must treat the creature with respect and devotion. It is only then that it will activate its powers and bring its owner good luck.

      Wearing feng shui jewellery for wealth is just one way of boosting your money luck and fortune. If it gets broken, there are plenty of other ways to attract luck in the Year of the Metal Ox.

      Make sure to follow the feng shui bracelet rules of wearing the Pixiu bracelet if you want to harness its full powers.

      Hi Annabelle,

      We don’t recommend using soap on the bracelet as chemicals may damage it. Washing it with running water is enough to cleanse Pixiu.

      Hope this helps!

      Hi Bong,

      If you don’t have a living area you may place it near the window or door and have its head face outward, this is for home guarding and money drawing. If you don’t have a silver bowl you may use a red cloth instead.

      Hope this helps!

      Hi Donna,

      Yes, you may wear one or more bracelets at a time just not too much. You can also wear the bracelet even if you are 70 years old as long as you are active, the effect will still be the same. It is just not advised for people over 70 who don’t have an active lifestyle.

      Hi Sheena,

      Your bracelet falling off means it has served its purpose already—whether it has brought you wealth or protected you from financial losses.

      Make sure to wrap the broken bracelet in a red cloth and bury it in a good place.

      And yes, it’s okay to wear a new feng shui Pixiu bracelet to continue attracting wealth and protecting you from bad luck.

      All the best!

      Just my sharing. I am a Malaysian Chinese. I received my bracelet last year as my Birthday gift from my wife. This is really a beautiful bracelet and I begin wearing it the way as advised. I love it so much. During the Chinese Lunar New Year this year, as my usual routine to visit the temples I happened to met a monk and we had a very short chat. He pointed at my bracelet and we chatted about the bracelet. Then he look closer at the pixiu and he told me it is such a beautiful crafted pixiu. Then he told me that if we don’t know how to open up the capabilities of the pixiu, it will just be another ornament of a bracelet. Then he taught me the whole process how to enable the strength and capabilities of the pixiu I am wearing. I did as advised after that. You won’t believe me. I can say whatever happened after that seems like coincidence or magical but I know I’ve push the ON button of the pixiu. All good things just come pouring at me till now. I don’t mind to share this if anyone of you want to know how. Write to me roger1611@gmail.com

      Hi Maria,

      We advise not to place it randomly. If you don’t wear it for a short time, you may place it as you wish and there will be no restriction on the direction. If you don’t wear it for a long time, you need to put it by heading it toward window or door for money drawing. If you need to store your Pi Xiu, pack it with a red rag and put in a jewelry box or wardrobe.

      Hope this helps.

      Hi AnnaMarie,

      You can either wear it on the left or right hand. But it’s usually worn on the left hand because vital energy goes from the human from left out of the right hand.

      Hi Jho! You may refrain from chili or spicy food.

      July 12, 2020

      Hi Jeanette! When it comes to cleansing and energizing the bracelet, go with a method that works for you. It is also important to enjoy and not something that you just do because it was expected.

      You may use some various ways:
      Moonlight – full or new moon is best for crystals. Great for charging, especially the New Moon phase.
      Rice – Brown rice is another great inexpensive way. Throw out the rice after using
      Sound – You can use singing bowls, singing pyramids, tinghaw bells, tuning forks and can also try YouTube clearing and energizing videos.

      Sun could be harsh a bit.

      Hi Favia,

      We advise wearing the bracelet on your left wrist which is considered the “receptive” side of the body. This allows you to receive the bracelet’s energy over attaching it on your belt.

      We hope you get the most out of your bracelet!

      Hi Chrisforth,

      In general, we discourage wearing the bracelet while making love. Pixiu is incompatible with dirty things, so refrain from wearing the bracelet while making love or bathing.

      The protective power of black obsidian applies only to negative energies around you as well as ill intentions.

      Hope you get the most out of your bracelet!
