The Use And Position of Feng Shui Wind Chimes


I have a huge wind chime outside my front door  - it is to the left as I am looking out of my house it has 6 long hollow rods is it auspicious where it is? And then my daughter brought the one i had out back on our deck and put that too right next to the one out front --is that too much giant wind chimes, or should I put the other one back hanging over our deck once again?

Answer: Regarding wind chimes, I personally like to recommend a wind chime that has 5 hollow metal tubes that make a pleasant sound. The 5 hollow metal tubes represent the five elements consisting of fire, earth, metal, water and wood.

There are many different methods and ways to use wind chimes in Feng Shui. One thing to consider based on your description, would you bump into it when coming in or out of the front door or on the sidewalk?

Feng Shui Wind ChimesTypically, when using wind chimes outside, we're making a correction, adjusting the direction of the chi or energy by diffusing and radiating a linear impact like that of a road, hallway, or staircase facing the front door, diverting the chi and relieving pressure. Or how the use of a wind chime can raise a person's chi level.

Based on what you described, it does not sound as though it is providing a feng shui cure other than wonderful sound of hearing the wind chime. I typically only have one wind chime per location or purpose and don't add additional wind chimes.

Recently, I did a consult where a woman had many artistic wind chimes hanging in a small bush. I suggested that we leave one and consider placing the others in different locations. It really made the space feel lighter and in harmony with the environment when we did that.

The ideal wind chime is one with 5 hollow metal tubes representing the 5 elements. 
I personally have a wind chime with one large metal tube, although pretty to look at, I don't use it for Feng Shui purposes. I've also used some wind chimes with 6 hollow metal tubes. 
How will be using the wind chimes and what will be the purpose? 
For me, 3 tubes is just ok.

Recently I have had light bulbs all burning out at once in my home..3 just this week. 2 of them are six year bulbs and only a year old. Is there any energy/feng shui significance to this happening? Note: I was going through some stressful business affairs when this was occurring.

i have a wind chime. what is the best location and direction to place that wind chime
Posted @ Saturday, May 23, 2009 5:06 AM by naresh kumar
Regarding the light bulbs, usually this represents arguments and frustrations. The light bulbs should be replaced as soon as they burn out.

When using wind chimes for Feng Shui, you are using them for some type of purpose rather than just to have them. You're either enhancing a place in the home, lifting the energy inside or outside of the home or using them to disperse energy or chi. Placement all depends on what you want to accomplish.

i have bought an 8 metal wind chime for good luck and prosperity, where should i put them inside the house or out the house in northwest sector. pls help

There are many different options when trying to enhance a certain area within the home. One question is what are you trying to achieve with the wind chimes or what area of your life are you trying to improve? Wind chimes can also be used to disperse the chi or energy. This is based on the structure of the house and not necessarily on the trigrams.  
If you were looking to energize your money and wealth, you could consider hanging it in your wealth corner of the home, which is in the back left corner when standing in the front door looking into the home. Of course you can also apply this to a particular room such as an office or bedroom. For the room, you would place it in the back left corner of the room when standing in the door way looking into the room.

is it true that one should not walk under a wind chime? my house is facing south east, what is the right location for wind chime in the house and outside?
Posted @ Monday, September 21, 2009 12:50 PM by sujata soni
Sujata - In my practice of Feng Shui, sometimes I place a wind chime directly above a person, so no, I don't view walking under or having a wind chime over a person to be an issue. The wind chime can be one of many tools to correct or enhance areas of your space or life. There is not one-size-fits-all recipe.

I am presently listening with a massive migraine to a neighbours wind chimes located floors away. I walked down out of desperation to try and locate it. It wasn't to difficult because it was, oh, ABOUT 4 to 5 feet long in a major highrise. 
We can't get away from it with our flippin doors closed. So you tell me how auspicious is that? People that hang wind chimes may mean well but they are particularly selfish. What makes them assume the other 100 or so neighbours on their side of the building wants to listen to one set of wind chimes intended for 1 person or 1 unit. GROW UP AND GET SOME MANNERS.

My house is West facing. Where can i put the wind chim to increas wealth and income
Posted @ Monday, June 21, 2010 11:51 PM by Archana
Archana, keep in mind that the Feng Shui that I practice does not work with the cardinal directions of north, south, east and west but how the chi enters the property and home. There are a variety of different ways to improve wealth and income. When standing at the front door or at the driveway entrance to your lot, the wealth and prosperity corner is in the back left of the lot or home. You could place the wind chime there. Although if you want to be seen differently in the world that can have a positive impact on your career, you may want to look at the fame area which is the back center.

I want a permanent job for my husband so,where shall i hang 5 metal rod wind chime?
Posted @ Tuesday, September 28, 2010 7:54 AM by bharathi
Bharathi, You can hang the wind chime near the front door. It may be best though to inquire about a Feng Shui consultation as there may be other factors contributing to this that can be addressed and more effective.

we're moving in to our new house in Jan.2011. I have 8 rod golden metal windchime which am planning to hang infront our main door. The house faces West,fronting a park and a light post.Is this auspicious?
Posted @ Sunday, December 19, 2010 4:51 PM by April Hammett
April, When we hang a wind chime in Feng Shui, it is used to empower an area or to help reduce the impact of negative items. Based on what you described, I probably would not hang it in front of the main door but off to the side somewhere.
Posted @ Monday, December 20, 2010 10:39 PM by Ken Lauher
Heintje, This could be from a variety of different issues. From the entrance to the floor plan of the house or even the lot shape. If you were standing at the front of the lot looking at the house, the back left would be the wealth corner where you could put a wind chime.

Recently my husband gifted me a windchime which has 12 copper colour rods,with a wooden top and octagonal fengshui coin hanging in between the rods...what is its significance and where should I hang this?
Posted @ Monday, December 19, 2011 11:51 PM by Rainy
Sounds like a very nice present. Have you hung it yet? It really depends on your current situation and goals. I feel like it may be best for you outside near the front door.

There are a variety ways to activate the energy of a space including wind chimes. When using wind chimes, it is best to have 5 hollow metal tubes.  
You could consider hanging the wind chimes in your wealth corner. This is the back left corner of your flat when standing in the main doorway looking in. However, it really needs to be identified about what your current situation is. Could it be because of others in your way or not helpful, or does he not have enough visibility? All these things can contribute to success in a career and abundance.
