They can be pretty to look at and soothing to hear, but did you know that that wind chimes also have healing effects? Just listening to the tones of the chimes can help calm your mind and release stress. Calming your mind, the tones of the chimes help to release all that stored up stress. This soothing effect helps open our spiritual awareness and has been used by many cultures for centuries.

As a Feng Shui cure, your wind chimes could help you gain luck and prosper. Metal wind chimes are recommended for the North, West and Northwest, Wood for the East, South and Southeast. For good luck, it is recommended to use chimes with 4, 6, 7, 8 or 18 rods. If it’s bad energy to want to keep away, then go for a chime with 5 rods. For outside the house, bamboo chimes are best.

You can hang wind chimes anywhere and on any type of hook - hooks sold for bird feeders work pretty good. Just make sure whatever hook you choose can support the weight of your chime. Make sure you do not hang it too close to any structure as you want it to be free to flow in the wind. Or you can use a fancy hanger to add more interest. When hanging your chime, remember to pick a spot that is protected from strong gusts of wind to avoid damage to your chime.

Some Ways To Enjoy Your Wind Chime:

  • Hang it near your hammock and take a soothing nap to the melodic tones of your chime.
  • Plant some flowers while listening to the music of your wind chime.
  • Bring dinner outside and have a romantic supper while listening to your chime.
  • Set your chimes up in your bedroom window so that you can hear them when the breeze wafts through on a hot summers evening.
  • Put some chimes in your office and to help release the stress of the workday.
  • Hang your wind chime by your door so that you can hear it first thing upon arriving home.
