The Feng Shui chime is an accessory that people often hang at the entrance of their home, or in any room of their home. According to some beliefs, this has several beneficial effects such as removing bad vibrations and bringing good circulation of energy throughout the home, including each of the clink of his few tubes.

But the best virtue attributed to it is surely the effects it has on people, such as making them calmer, more active, and at the same time more in harmony with who they really are.

In the Western style of life that tends to spread around the world, and that has the principle of promoting a frantic pace whether in the work or in the tasks of daily life, the man has a tendency to evolve more and more in an environment of stress, pollution and the various allergies that result.

In this environment where there is trouble even in our inner energies, the best solution is Feng Shui.

The Chinese have always considered the two natural elements that are the wind and the water as the main vectors essential to a good circulation of the energy in the space, and at the same time giving us the well being to which we aspire all .

But there are also two kinds of energy running through the universe, one positive and the other negative. This is also symbolized by Yin and Yang. And the Feng Shui is the ancestral art that stems from all these old traditions.

Created around 2000 BC in ancient China, Feng Shui, literally meaning wind and water, gives you a clear idea of how to best position your home, or how to arrange it. your furniture optimal ways, so that energy can circulate better, necessary condition to quickly improve the quality of life of those who live there. Indeed, for the followers of Feng Shui, the secret of the well being is in the arrangement of things to a certain precise place.

The meaning of the objects that must be available is therefore very important for this ancient concept. And there are large varieties that are usually used to bring more harmony, serenity and well being, be it crystal balls, swarovski jewels, Chinese prosperity pieces, kua mirror, clocks, gift cards, tiger eye bracelets, selenite hearts, jade necklaces, fountains, and chimes.

The  wind chime originates from a musical instrument consisting of a group of four bells, but the one that is used in Feng Shui is rather a tubular chime, consisting of a number of chopsticks. There are several different types, depending on their number and composition, but each one is important and useful.

The chime once well placed, becomes an investment of less expenses but which helps people, modifying the bad Feng Shui of the house. However, their design and use must comply with certain rules.

The chime must therefore have 5, 6 or 8 tubes each having different meanings. Chimes with 5 chopsticks for example, which represents the land and attracts the good Chi and prosperity, should normally be placed along the 5 cardinal points, namely north, south, east, west and finally the center.

The chimes with 6 chopsticks fight the misfortunes which are manifested most often in the form of annoyances, misfortunes, accidents, or other diseases. The 8 chop chimes attract prosperity, which is perfect for stimulating areas of wealth. The 6 chop chime is the most powerful of the three, but the 8 chop chime is by far the most used by the Chinese.

But the material of which the carillon is made plays also a primordial role in the choice of its location. Those who are bamboo or wood, should be placed in areas to the east, south east or south. Those made of glass or clay are placed to the south west or north east.

Those that are of different kinds of metals, such as copper, aluminum, brass or stainless steel, are reserved for sectors to the west, north west or north. But as the metal outweighs the other elements, whatever its place, it helps to counter adverse situations and can successfully defeat the negative influence.

It only takes a breath of wind or a door movement to hear the harmonious and melodious sound of the carillon that spreads to its immediate surroundings. The latter must be carefully tuned by hand, in order to obtain a clear song, whose wind is the artist of the few notes that come to inspire the occupants of the house.

The chime must be hung in a place where there is enough movement or wind to move it and make it ring. We must make sure that there is nothing red attached to the chime, and also avoid that those of the same number is placed in the same place, under penalty of having a combination of undesirable energy .

But we must take some precautions concerning the establishment of a carillon. In no case should it be placed just above the place where we sleep, or at the top of the places where we sit, overlooking the place where we eat, and also on our work table, as this may significantly reduce our vital energy. Spaces too confined are also to be avoided, or otherwise we must hang the chime at a lower height, especially at the waist.
