If the path from the street to your front door is long and straight, hang a wind chime by the door or porch steps to slow the chi down so it enters your home gently.
Wind chimes are also good for lifting the energy of a space. If one corner of your yard is lower than the others, chi may settle there. Hanging a wind chime from a tree in that corner can stir the chi up and keep it moving.
Smaller wind chimes can be used indoors, anywhere that you feel a need for protection, to slow down fastmoving chi, or to lift the energy of a room.
If a certain area of your home has a major clutter problem, hang a wind chime there for a few days and make sure it sounds often. It will help loosen up the stuck energy so your clutter-clearing efforts will progress more quickly.
Match the size of the wind chime to the size of your space.
A large brass wind chime might be overwhelming indoors, while a very small chime may not be strong enough to have much effect.
Choose metal chimes, as they have the most penetrating tone.
The most important consideration for a wind chime is that the sound be pleasing to you, so pick the one whose tones you like the best.
