Wind Chimes: Just Aesthetic or Perfect For Feng Shui?

Jul 28, 2008
If you ever visit china or Asia on a vacation, you will see several homes have wind chimes hanging out on the porch or a window or above the doorway. Wind chimes are believed to have been brought to the US through Feng Shui. Wind chimes were always used as another beautiful piece of artifact at home before Feng Shui as well. Here we will look into some details.

Other questions to be answered are: how do you use feng shui wind chimes in the home? Where should they be placed? Where should they not be placed in the interests of practicing sound feng shui?

Remembering the Five Elements of Feng Shui

You are probably already familiar with the five elements, namely, wood, water, fire, earth and metal, that are the embodiment of feng shui. These elements are meant to balance one another and keep any one from overpowering a room or any particular area. Feng shui wind chimes are usually used as such an element in order to introduce either metal or wood to a room or to a home.

If your room signifies the earth element, then you can use metal wind chimes to balance it. A room in colors of brown or tan would mean earth element and displaying a wind chime in metal outside the room in a manner that it is visible from within the room balances the energies in that room.

Besides the metal on the wind chime, if it has colorful artwork on it, the colors balance the room as well. Orange or yellow flowers on the e wind chime will offset the warmth of the brown and will not allow it to overpower it.

If your bathroom is white in color, which resembles peace and purity or the water element, it can become cold and sterile. You could hang a wooden wind chime in the balcony or form a window to bring in the warmth of the wood element. A nice brown wooden wind chime or one with darker artwork will offset the white of the kitchen brining warmth and harmony.

Where Not to Use Your Feng Shui Wind Chimes

Feng shui is just as much about what to leave out as it is what to include. For this reason, there are situations where feng shui wind chimes may be unwarranted. For example, if your home tends to be noisy and chaotic, wind chimes may not be such a good idea for your particular case. They should also be left out if you live in close quarters with neighbors who will be annoyed by them or where you live prohibits them.

Getting into trouble over wind chimes is not good feng shui after all. Feng shui aims to create peace and positive energy, hardly what having and angry neighbor or landlord will gain you.
