So the story goes

Almost all Asian countries lay claim to being the first inventors of the wind chimes.

The earliest proof of wind chimes that were found at South Asian archaeological sites record their date of existence as far back as 3000 B.C. The first wind chimes, ancient buildings of bone, wood or bamboo stone or stones were said to ward off evil spirits. In some cultures like Bali, farmers used wind chimes to chase away birds and animals from their cultivated fields. Today, wind chimes are said to bring good luck and fortune. In many cultures, the melodic sounds of the wind chimes are said to be a call out to spirits asking them to protect by bringing in positive energies to the home.  In some other cultures, wind chimes are a spiritual reminder in that the wind is viewed as a symbol of change, spirit and enlightenment. The gentle movement of the wind signifies the subtle changes in life that take place every day.

Depending on the material, the wind chime is placed in certain locations.

Whereas the crystal wind chimes can be placed anywhere, wooden chimes are generally hung in eastern, south-eastern or southern zones of the house. They generally drive away negative energies with large amounts of wood energy. They are also good for bedrooms as they give our relaxing tones. Ceramic chimes are usually placed in the northwest, southwest or northeast corners of the house, where they bring in wisdom, romance, health and luck. Bamboo chimes, when placed towards the east, invite riches and resources into a home. If placed in the south, they bring fame. When placed in the east, they produce a large amount of wood energy that aids in reducing stress for a good night’s sleep.
