Wind Chimes in Feng Shui
All energy is vibration – including sound, especially the sound made by wind chimes. Guiding the sound vibration in a space with wind chimes can be a remedy or a good luck magnet in feng shui.
Wind Chimes are a very popular Feng Shui cure, and there is a variety of ways you can use them for good feng shui. In fact, wind chimes are one of Feng Shui’s most common remedies, used both to suppress and cure negative energy, as well as to add energy where chi is lacking. Some authorities prefer to keep wind chimes outdoors in the garden where they are naturally suited (that’s where the wind is, after all), but other practitioners feel no qualms about the careful use of wind chimes in indoor locations.
Feng Shui Wind Chimes for Stuck Chi
In feng shui, wind chimes activate stagnant areas where chi is stuck by diffusing old collected energy and bringing in new healthy energy. Each wind chime has its personality and performs differently to affect the surrounding chi.
Hollow metal windchimes are very popular as Feng Shui remedies. They allow Chi to rise upwards bringing happiness and good luck to the household. Working in harmony with air movements, they are highly beneficial when placed in the west or north west sectors of your home as these are the metal areas. The west also represents children so metal windchimes in this location will help provide you with children if that is what you want. The northwest governs networking aspirations and mentors. A metal windchime there will attract such people to you. Metal also activates the north (water) sector which governs career. Windchimes here will help you to advance in your chosen profession.
Effective in removing bad Chi, windchimes can be placed to overcome several defects. If your front door is on the sunless YIN side, hang wind chimes near it to stimulate positive SHENG QI. Their gentle song is a sign that stagmant QIis being activated.
Wind chimes also slow down QI if it travels too quickly thru a house. For example a front door directly facing a back door means QI will run straight thru without having a chance to circulate around your house, bringing prosperity and opportunity. Windchimes hanging just inside the front door will help remedy the situation. To counteract the ill effect of 3 doors in a line, hang wind chimes in the middle one.
Number of Rods to Select
Remember there are no hard and fast feng shui rules for using wind chimes, but do take advantage of numbers, when selecting the number of rods. In general, odd numbers are yang and even numbers are yin.
Three and multiples of three (six, nine) contain wealth, accomplishment and attainment energy.
4 is a strong foundation and security.
5 is considered best when you want to suppress bad energy
7 expands and deepens self-knowledge.
6 & 8 is a prosperous growth, success, and ongoing abundance (These are the most popular numbers of bells in a wind chime if you want to increase the beneficial energy) We at Windsong sell wind chimes with 6 & 8 roads, but can also customize as per your particular numbers.
Feng Shui Wind Chimes Offer Music and Magic
Wind chimes are among the most delightful feng shui cures and enhancements. They tap into the ancient Chinese deification of sound; many thousands of years ago only members of the royal family and visiting dignitaries were permitted the celestial luxury of musical entertainment using chimes and bells. That sacred energy translates to the unspoken power of chime to capture the wind, harness its potency, and place it in the service of a higher good: your pleasure, prosperity, and good fortune.
