What Windchime symbolizes?
Windchimes like baguas is a fundamental tool used in authentic Feng Shui. The advantage of a windchime is it can be use internally to dissolve shar chi. Windchimes are unquestionably the most powerful enhancer and cure for many Feng Shui situations. Windchimes are potent enough to maneuver and enhance chi wherever it is placed. They make a significant presence especially for those who do not want to spend too much money to modify buildings and large structures due to bad Feng Shui. Properly designed windchimes according to the rules of the nature do not invite ghost, but instead will chase away evil spirits due to its strong metal energy.
The proper design of windchime is important to ensure stimulation of good chi. Windchimes are made with 5, 6 or 8 rods, with each number representing hidden meanings.
- 5 rods represents EARTH and attracts excellent chi and prosperity from 5 cardinal directions, namely North, South, East, West and Center.
- 6 rods represents the “chien hexagram” from the studies of I-ching which carries the meaning BIG METAL and luck from heaven. Such a hexagram exerts the strongest form of metal energy which is required to counter problematic earth energy from flying stars #2 and #5.
- 8 rods represents PROSPERITY BLESSINGS (fatt) and is the most popularly wanted number by Chinese.
As an important rule of thumb, 5 & 6 rods are best to suppress bad luck and bad chi (curing purpose), while 6 & 8 rods are best to attract good luck (enhancement purpose). The 6-rods are also excellent cure for bad flying stars for those who practise Xuan Kong Flying Star Feng Shui.
Next, the rods should be designed according to Feng Shui principles, they must be hollow to stimulate flow of chi through it and to produce proper melody with sound enhancement. The safest is to adopt windchime designs that are truly designed to feng shui principles. Some old fashioned chinese windchimes are usually added with fortune-bringing-bells and pagoda. Bells create strong tones and melody to attact money. Meanwhile, pagodas are powerful symbols to ward off evil spirits and also increase scholastic luck. Actually different number of tiers also represent different meanings for the pagoda:
- 5-tiers Pagoda represents complete representation of the five elements, ie Metal, wood, water, fire and earth. It also represents the guardian of 5 directions by emperors. This leads to overall improvement of fortune and good luck, while overpowering or subduing bad luck coming from all the 5 directions.
- 7-tiers Pagoda signifies seven treasures of Buddhism. It accumulates benevolance. It is also said to symbolize blessing from seven northern stars which brings ultimate wealth luck and career luck.
- 9-tiers bring completeness and brings nobility, strength, good career, wealth and study luck. It also possess power to suppress bad luck and instability.
In terms of materials, if the purpose is to enhance luck, one can choose windchimes that are made from the element which is similar to the element of the direction they wish to enhance. For example, enhancement in West, Northwest and North must have the windchime made by metal (Copper, Aluminium, Brass or Stainless Steel rods). Next, windchimes made of bamboo and wood are good as enhancers in East, Southeast and South, while windchimes made from glass/clay can be used in Southwest and Northeast. However, windchimes are normally used as cure or remedy for tough situations in feng shui and seldom for enhancement. And in generally, you should not be worried to use metal windchime in any direction as the significance of the presence of a metal windchime overides element clashes in any directions.
