Wind-chimes in Feng-Shui

Wind-chimes are a powerful tool in Feng-Shui, used as cures against negative energies in afflicted zones or as enhancers of good energies throughout. They should be hanged in the corner of a room, by the wall. Despite a common belief, windchimes should never be hanged in the doorways, arch-ways and windows. And of course, there’s a certain type of a wind-chime for every zone.

In Feng-Shui, any space – be it a house, 1 room in a house or even a desk – can be divided into zones according to compass direction. Each of these compass zones are associated with an element.Here’s how:  North with Water,  North East with Earth, East with Wood, South East with Wood, South with Fire, South West with Earth, West with Metal, North West with Metal.

Tubes of a wind-chime should always be hollow. Solid rods have no effect for Feng-Shui. Reason being that a wind-chime works a transmitter of sorts that attracts Chi inside of itself transforming it through sound from negative bearing energy to positive.

As wind-chimes are symbolic, the material a chime is made of, like wood or metal, matters, as well as the number of tubes is important for the anticipated result in a particular zone.

Therefore, to use wind-chimes efficiently, here are a couple things to keep in mind.

For cure of an afflicted zone and protection,
in the East and South East – hang a metal wind-chime
in the Noth East and South West – hand a wooden chime
in the North – hand a ceramic wind-chime

In the West and North West use light, like adding lamps or higher voltage light bulbs  to combat the afflicted zones, instead of wind-chimes.

To enhance the good energy of a zone,
In the East and South East – hang a wooden chime
in the North East and South West – hang a ceramic chime
in the West and North West – hang a metal chime.

Also, note the number of rods in a wind-chime.
For cures, to transform bad energy into good Chi, always use a 5-rod chime made of material corresponding to the element of the zone you want to “fix”.

However, if you want to enhance a certain corner, follow this rule:
2-rod chime to enhance a South West corner
3 rods for the East
4 rods for South East
6 rods for North West
7 rods for the West
8 rods for North East
9 rods in the South

Symbolic meanings of wind-chimes as a cure for a particular affliction is often displayed in an image or statuette above the rods. For instance, wind-chimes with a Wu Lou enhance good health, metal chimes are often adorned with coins and gold ingots for wealth and so on.

Do you have wind-chimes around your home?

  1. Thanks for pointing out that if you use wind chimes for Feng Shui, they should be hollow so they can work properly as a transmitter. Lately I’ve been interested in learning more about Feng Shui to help bring more positive energy into my home. Your tip about using hollow wind chimes will be helpful as I rearrange and redecorate my home!

    1. Hello Daphne, thanks for kind words! Good luck redecorating – it is quite a challenge, please keep in mind the colors of each sector of your home and the colors of annual and monthly flying stars. Good luck!!

  2. I know it’s quite an old post but this one caught my eye from my Inbox, Elena. Have you Feng shui’d your home? I did read a manual once but never got around to interpreting it properly. A few things I remember- one of them being that cut flowers are bad Feng Shui. That’s me doomed because I love fresh flowers on my hearth. Wishing you a happy weekend! 🙂

  3. Thanks for sharing these great tips. I didn’t realize how symbolic wind chimes can be in Feng-Shui. I now want to hang wind chimes all over the place. That probably wouldn’t help a whole lot however.
