Wind Chimes Enhance Your Life

Oct 30, 2007
Wind chimes are not only soothing to listen to and beautiful to look at but they also contain healing effects. For years, cultures from various civilizations have utilized the benefits of wind chimes to restore and calm the spirit. Today, it is still widely believed that listening to the soothing tones of chimes can help to calm the mind while relieving stress. As your mind becomes calmer, the tones of the chimes will help to release stress that has become stored over time. This can help to improve one's spiritual awareness. Chimes have been used for this very purpose for a number of centuries throughout many different cultures and today the stress of modern living has demanded a return to simpler times.

Feng shui often utilizes chimes to help followers prosper and gain luck. In the north, west and northwest metal wind chimes are recommended while wood is recommended for the east, south and southeast. If you're interested in using wind chimes to prosper and gain luck, order a set of chimes with 4, 6, 7,8, or 18 rods. To keep bad energy away, select a set of chimes with 5 rods. For chimes that will be used outside, be sure to select bamboo wind chimes.

Ways in which you can enjoy your wind chimes include hanging it near a hammock outside so that you can enjoy the soothing and melodic tones of your chimes as you nap.

You might also consider planting flowers near your chime so that you can enjoy their beauty and fragrance while you listen to the music of your chimes.

If you enjoy dining outside, consider hanging a set of chimes near your outdoor dining area to enhance a romantic outdoor dinner.

Wind chimes are frequently used to enhance garden areas. Hang them throughout the trees in your garden or place them strategically on decorate poles to provide a soothing and relaxing experience.

Hang your chimes outside your bedroom window. This will allow you to hear the melodic tones in the breeze on a hot summer evening as you drift off to sleep.

Chimes also make a good choice for your office. A set of chimes in your office can help to relieve the stress of the workday and make you more productive.

Set up your chimes by your front entrance so that the beautiful sounds of your chimes is the first thing that greets you when you arrive home at the end of the day.

Regardless of where you choose to hang your chimes, they can be set up with relative ease. Any type of hook can be used; however, you should make sure it is strong enough to support the weight of your chime. Avoid hanging it too closely to other structures, as you want to be sure your chimes have sufficient freedom of movement. To add even more visual interest, consider using a fancy hook.

With the myriad of unique and interesting wind chimes currently available, there is no reason to take advantage of the many benefits provided by the soothing and relaxing sounds of chimes.
