Uses for Wind Chimes

What are wind chimes for? To make noise you say? Not so fast!

For use in Feng Shui

For Feng Shui purposes, it is preferred to select wind chimes made of hollow tubes. This enhances the influence of Chi. There are many options for placing wind chimes around the home. You canplace them by a door or window to take advantage of an afternoon breeze. You can also place them in relatively darker sections of the home to enhance the Chi. You can even specifically select thewind chimes for the element it represents i.e., tubes or clackers of metal, wood, or earth (clay), and place them strategically at certain locations.

Protecting Vulnerable Garden Areas

People frequently encourage wildlife to visit and live in their gardens. This is very natural, and helps keep us in tune with Mother Nature. Living in harmony with nature is the surest path to peace in your own lives. However, there will always be occasions and/or parts of the garden where we do not welcome the incursion of wild animals looking for a meal. For instance, when planting young seedlings, or when a crop of edible plants is getting close to harvest time. So we have to strike a balance between encouraging wildlife to visit as well as discouraging them at other times or from certain particular places. A safe and sane way to help discourage wildlife from entering certain areas is the use of wind chimes. Choose brushed aluminum or other tarnish-resistant, bright, shiny chimes. The flash of the sun off the wind chimes, and the sound can help protect vulnerable crops and areas of the garden.

Blocking the unwanted noises of daily life

The right set of wind chimes let you use the breeze like a stereo. A row of bamboo tubes, a copper wind bell or a swirl of bright brushed aluminum tubes can sound amazingly melodic. When the breeze begins, relax and enjoy. Wind chimes have matured from simple garden accessories that used to be a collection of glass or metal tied to a top piece, and the result usually was a mess. Nowadays, they are musically tuned, delicate reflections of the best in natures natural audio. Our daily lives are marred by daily incursions of images, scents, and sounds. Wind chimes give our ears something to concentrate on, both consciously and unconsciously, helping to block distant and unwanted sounds. For example, a school in the distance, nearby freeway, or other traffic noise. Choose the wind chime carefully, make sure you hear the level of sound your chime makes, and measure it against the backdrop you’re trying to mask. You’ll find it a pleasant way to bring a curtain of sound between yourself and the day-to-day world.

Wind Chimes Help the Garden Sing! - Great Gifts - Made-In-The-USA The soothing, melodic tones of properly tuned wind chimes brings a statement of graceful ambiance to any backyard or patio. They are often the missing element in the garden, adding a soundtrack that enhances the beauty of the surroundings. Wind chimes please the sense of sound, like beautiful flowers satisfy the sense of sight, and the fragrances of trees, herbs, and shrubs satisfy the sense of smell.
