This is no surprise to many cultures as chimes have been used for hundreds of years.
In fact, wind chimes are used in many Feng Shui cures and yours may be able to help bring luck and prosperity to your home. Metal wind chimes are recommended for the North, West and Northwest, Wood for the East, South and Southeast. For good luck, it is recommended to use chimes with 4, 6, 7, 8 or 18 rods. If it’s bad energy to want to keep away, then go for a chime with 5 rods. For outside the house, bamboo chimes are best.
You can hang your wind chime on any type of hook - hooks sold for bird feeders work pretty good. Just make sure it is hung far enough out from the house or structure so that it can sway and chime. You can also buy fancy hangers that screw in or that stick up from the ground. When hanging your chime, make sure that you hang it in an area that is somewhat protected from strong winds to prevent it from becoming damaged.
