Depending on your outlook in life and spiritual beliefs, Wind Chimes can either be pleasant sounding background music, or a tool to bring good luck and positive energy and ward of negativity.
In parts of Asia, wind chimes and bells were used warn of coming diseases (it was thought disease was carried in the wind) and therefore became symbols of good luck. In other eastern cultures and Feng Shui, Sheng Chi energy can be attracted by wind chimes ("Chi" translates roughly as "air" which is perhaps where this connection comes from), and can even help bring money into your home.
If you believe in spiritual healing through sound waves, then many wind chimes are tuned specifically to tune into these frequencies.
Wind Chimes are also often used as a tool in meditation and yoga classes.
We've put together a selection of the most spiritual chimes in our Meditation and Yoga section of our website.
Are the tones played by the wind purely random, or is mystic energy playing the notes in a carefully, secretly structured way? Maybe next time you are enjoying your chimes, stop a while and really listen to the melodies that they play - you may be surprised to hear messages that you never knew were there!
