Dur­ing the sec­ond cen­tury in China, pago­das or tiered tow­ers, be­came very pop­u­lar and wind bells were hung at cor­ners. The slight­est breeze would swing the clap­per lead­ing to a melo­di­ous tin­kling sound. It is be­lieved that th­ese bells were in­tended to scare away the birds and any lurk­ing spir­its. They were thought to bring good luck to the res­i­dents.

It was around 1100 BC that the wind chime started to as­sume a shape we are fa­mil­iar with now. A bell with­out a clap­per called the yongzhong was crafted by skilled metal ar­ti­sans which was pri­mar­ily used dur­ing re­li­gious cer­e­monies. Later, the Chi­nese cre­ated the fengling which is sim­i­lar to to­day’s mod­ern wind bell. The fenglings were hung from shrines and pago­das to ward off evil spir­its and at­tract benev­o­lent ones. To­day, hang­ing wind chimes is a com­mon prac­tice in the East and used to max­imise the flow of chi or life en­ergy.

The tones and vi­bra­tions of wind chimes help to calm the mind, soothe your nerves and re­lieve stress. The re­lax­ing sound of your wind chimes may also give you a soul con­nect. For thou­sands of years, wind chimes have been utilised for decoration, and other things. Feng shui also uses wind chimes for nu­mer­ous treat­ments, be­liev­ing that the re­lax­ing sounds cre­ated by them could heal and re­store the soul.

For the north, north­west as well as west, metal wind chimes are a great choice while wooden wind chimes work prop­erly in the south, south­east and east. In line with feng shui, you will be able to se­lect the quan­tity of rods keep­ing in mind the type of treat­ment you de­sire. For in­stance, four, six, seven, eight or 18 rods could like­wise be used for good for­tune. The place­ment of wind chimes in your home or of­fice is very im­por­tant. It is vi­tal that cor­rect di­rec­tions are used and the free­dom of mo­tion is not re­stricted other­wise the in­flow of chi will be ham­pered.
