How to Wear a Piyao Bracelet

Now that you know how to wear a Pixiu bracelet, it's time to activate it. Activating means you're aligning Pixiu with your intention, making it more powerful.
How to Activate Your Pixiu Bracelet in 9 Steps
Before Wearing Your Pixiu
1. Cleanse your bracelet
Your bracelet may have accumulated too much energy as it reaches your doorstep. This can dull the effect of your wealth charm. That's why it's essential that you cleanse it before wearing. Keep reading until the end to learn how to cleanse your Pixiu bracelet.
2. Feed your Pixiu
Before wearing the bracelet, you must train your Pixiu to look out for abundance. To do this, place it in a bowl filled with precious items such as coins and gems. However, refrain from using paper bills because Pixiu is not attracted to them. Do this annually, before the upcoming Chinese New Year begins.
3. Program your intention
The energy of your bracelet must align with the energy of your intention. You can achieve this by turning your goal into affirmation. For instance, you can say “I attract the energy of abundance” every day while wearing the bracelet. Repeat the mantra several times to manifest your intentions.
While Wearing Your Pixiu
4. Wear it on your left hand
In Chinese culture, the left hand is considered the receiving hand. The saying goes, “The left is going in, the right is going out.” Wearing the feng shui bracelet on your left hand helps you absorb wealth chi (energy), thus, inviting abundance into your life.
5. Make Pixiu face outwards
This means the head of Pixiu should face toward the direction of your little finger. Doing so allows the fortune beast to look for precious items around you.
6. Pet your Pixiu
Piyao serves you best when you strengthen your bond with it. To do this, you must touch its body frequently, just like how you would with your pet. However, avoid touching its mouth and eyes which it uses to hunt for treasures.
7. Work toward your goal
Good feng shui teaches us to work toward our goal. In return, the universe through the Piyao bracelet will aid us in manifesting our intentions.
After Wearing Your Pixiu
8. Let it face outside
While it is advised to wear the bracelet every time, you’ll have to remove it when you’re sleeping, using the toilet, or making love. When you do, you can place it in your bowl, with its head facing the door or windows. This lets Piyao continue searching for abundance even at home. When you’re outside, you can pack it in a red cloth whenever you’re using the toilet.
9. Pack it in a red cloth if it breaks
There will come a time when your bracelet will break. This could mean the amulet has already served its purpose. When it breaks, pack it in a red cloth and bury it to the ground.
