What the Windchime symbolizes and its Application in Symbolism Feng Shui:
Wind Chimes, also called magic bells, holds a significant presence in Feng Shui. It is without question the most powerful and versatile enhancer and cures to correct Feng Shui defects. The heralds of two wonderful messages: cheerfulness through the sound and life from the wind that breathes into the tubes, windchimes transform bad and harmful chi that enters your homes or offices into ‘Seng chi’, the intrinsic energy which brings good fortune to its occupants.
Windchimes made of copper, bronze, aluminum, brass, and steel are especially potent when there are Feng Shui defects to be corrected in the metal element corners (West and Northwest) and Water element corner (North) because Metal produces Water. Whereas wood Windchimes such as those made of bamboos are only effective in the wood element corners (East and Southeast) as well as in the fire element corner (South) because Wood feeds Fire. Use ceramic Windchimes for the Southwest (love and romance luck), Northeast (knowledge luck), and Center (general luck of the whole family) sectors of the home. These are the Earth energy sectors.
Hanging metal Windchimes in the wood corners (East and Southeast) is to be avoided since Metal destroys Wood. However, exceptions can be made if the annual malignant #5 yellow star and #2 black star reside here or if there is a need to deflect certain Sar Chi coming from these (wood) directions because the consequences would be worst if you had not.
As for the number of rods, the best number of rods to have is 5, 6, or 8. These are the lucky numbers during this Feng Shui period 8 which starts in the year 2004 and ends in 2024. However, take note that the number of rods used has different effects on luck. Use 6 or 8 rods if you want to attract good luck in your lives. If you want to suppress bad luck, 5 is most suitable.
