Did you know that the gentle tinkling sound of wind chimes help attract positive energy at home?

Wind chimes have a great significance in Vaastu and Feng Shui.

“Wind chimes are known to bring in positive energy at home. Further, one can also use these to reduce the impact of Vaastu dosha and bring in harmony,” explains Gauravv Mittal, a renowned Vaastu expert.

He further explains, “If the entrance of your home is in the North-West zone, hanging a white metal wind chime can bring in a lot of positive energy.”

However, to make the best use of wind chimes, it is imperative to hang these in the right places. As per experts, there are three main guidelines that one should keep in mind:

  • Material
  • Symbols in the design
  • Number of rods

Now, let’s delve deeper.


You will find many different types of wind chimes on the market. These include metal, wooden (usually made of bamboo), and ceramic ones. Interestingly, the direction of these matters based on the material used.


For instance, chimes made of metal such as steel, aluminium, copper, etc. should be placed in the West, North-West, and North directions for the desired results. Wooden wind chimes should be placed in the East, South, and South-East areas of your home.

Lastly, the ceramic ones can be used in the North-East, South-West, and Central areas of your home.


You may have come across several wind chimes with traditional symbols. The placement of such chimes entirely depends on the symbol used.

For instance, two birds symbolize happy and beautiful love, which is particularly meaningful as a wedding anniversary gift.



Paying attention to the number of the rods or bells is equally important.

“Numbers play an important role in wind chimes to get the best results,” adds Gauravv.


Numbers six and eight are the most popular numbers of bells or rods in a wind chime to attract positive energy. For those looking to suppress negative energy, using a chime with five rods is recommended.

While you can place wind chimes anywhere in your home, it is advisable to hang these in the direction of wind-flow to increase the effect, concludes Gauravv.
