    History of Windchimes

    Wind chimes are being used in recent items as home decor items that are believed to be good luck charms. But how did the practice of using wind chimes come into being, and why? What did the first wind chime ever look like? We’ve got the answer to all these interesting questions so you can satisfy your curiosity.

Modern versions, constructed of metal and designed to produce distinct sounds, first appeared around 1100 BC. They eventually spread to the Dutch and Japan before touching the rest of the world. South East Asia is considered to be the birthplace of the practice of making and using wind chimes. 


    The sounds produced by these wind chimes helped ward off birds from fields in ancient times. With the discovery of bells, the wind chimes started to be used in Chinese culture in prayer and meditation. These bells were hung from religious buildings and were thought to bring good fortune. In Japan, they were called ‘Furin’, or ‘Wind Bell’, and were used to warn of coming diseases because diseases were believed to be spread through the air.


    Hence, for thousands of years, our ears have found the tinkly sound of the wind chimes to be pleasant and continue to do so!

Surrounding ourselves with soft and positive sounds like those of wind chimes helps create a relaxing effect.  Even so, there are many reasons why people still hang wind chimes outside their window and have been doing so for thousands of years. Wind chimes are believed to spread positivity and good energies. They are said to represent the ideal flow of energies or ‘feng shui’ throughout the space where they are kept. This is why they are commonly used for feng shui adjustments. It is a method of removing old negative energies and replacing them with new positive ones.


    The various types of metal and bell wind chimes are believed to be bearers of good luck. They tend to store positive energy and push away negative ones. The gentle and charming sound allows this energy to linger in your home and keeps you in an optimistic mood. The chimes, in addition to promoting growth in life, also guard you against the malicious intents of others. Even now, they are posted on the walls to frighten away evil spirits. Therefore these wind chimes help provide a sense of security and may lead to overall well-being in your life. 


    Wind chimes, in addition to generating optimism, also aid in reducing Vastu dosha in a home. It is best hung in the northwest direction of your home. People buy them to purify and enhance the energy in their environment. Their soothing noises, on the other hand, might transport you to a contemplative state.

    Types of Wind Chimes

    Although wind chimes are mostly popular for their pleasant sounds, various styles of wind chimes are available to enhance the look of your home. The different kinds of wind chimes are made with different materials and patterns, which tend to produce a variety of harmonious sounds. They also add to the aesthetics of your space. Here is a look at some types of wind chimes:


    Based on their material:

    • Metal wind chimes: These are highly popular thanks to their durability and tuning. Only these types of wind chimes can be tuned to create specific sounds. They are also resistant to water and rust. You won't have to worry about them breaking or losing their lustre, which means they'll last a long time.
    • Bamboo wind chimes: Although they cannot be tuned and are not long-lasting, these can simulate soothing noises such as rain or exotic drumming. Bamboo wind chimes are a natural and ecologically sustainable way to relieve tension, with soothing tones.
    • Wind chimes made of ceramic, glass, or seashells are often chosen for their aesthetic style and colour rather than their sound, which can range from a quiet tinkling to a loud clanging.


    Based on their appearance and structure:

    • Classic rod wind chimes: They have a consistent pitch because of their solid mass. They look well in any setting but outstanding in modern surroundings. Their sleek, simple design paired with a smooth hardwood top piece can readily suit modernism's more minimalist characteristics.
    • Classic tubes: These are different from the rods as they are made of hollow metal but share various aesthetic characteristics with the classic rods. However, they are much lighter, requiring less wind to sway and produce sound. They produce a lively vibe in any home.
    • Feng Shui gongs: These bring a bit of history into your home and resemble actual gongs that used to be hung outside monasteries in earlier times.



    Some Tips to Attract Positivity, Good Luck or Love With Wind Chimes 

    There is a reason why wind chimes are used in feng shui adjustments and are believed to bring in good luck and prosperity. The first reason is that they are creators of sound, and sound is an important part of changing the energy of a space. The right sound can instantly shift negative energies and welcome positive ones. This feng shui concept has been believed by people for many years and is said to make you feel more relaxed and optimistic. The sound vibrations created by the wind chimes move through objects and spaces to shift energy. 


    Another reason is that they are mostly made of metal. They help add the metal element to your surrounding space, which is usually lacking in many rooms.

    If you want to make the best use of wind chimes in your home to attract more positivity, here are some tips that are believed to help: 


    • Wind chimes should be hung in the West, North, or North West directions.

Hanging these chimes in the north direction may open up employment opportunities, and placing the wind chimes in the north west area is said to bring you the fortune of learned gurus.
