In feng shui, wind chimes are widely used to activate chi/qi and eliminate any blockages that can be causing problems for a home’s occupants.
They can control the flow of chi, such as diffusing the negative chi that has been accumulated. They also can direct beneficial chi into an area that has become stagnant.

Types of Wind Chimes
However, wind chimes should be hung correctly if you want them to work for the best of their owner.
Silver or copper, bamboo or wooden, ceramic or glass – wind chimes are always pleasant and useful when used as feng shui cure against possible negative influences of environmental forces.
