Relaxing Bubble Bath for Moms!

Mother’s Day is coming up.  While we here at EcoWindChimes.com know you have already ordered Mom a great wind chime for Mother’s Day 2014, we wanted to use today’s blog to share how to prepare a relaxing bath when you can’t be near your wind chimes.

  1. Add Lavender to your bath. It smells wonderful and has a natural calming effect.
  2. Have soft towels available. Don’t buy cheap towels that are not comforting when you step out of a bath. The fabric makes a huge difference.
  3. Use an inflatable bath pillow when in the bath for ultimate comfort.
  4. Sit in the bathtub with a plastic glass of wine or a non-alcoholic smoothie. Even if you don’t drink it, the drink near the tub adds a luxury feeling to the experience, which is calming in itself.
  5.  Make sure you apply salt facial during your bath. This simply is taking a little bit of salt and making a paste with the bath water in the palm of your hand. Scrub your face, not near your eyes, for a skin peeling and relaxing in-bath facial.

These tips will help you create a great and relaxing bath experience. Print this blog and share them with mom this Mother’s Day.

Wind Chimes; A Very Popular Feng Shui Cure www.EcoWindChimes.com

Yes, wind chimes are considered a cure or medicine in several cultures.  In fact, many people think of wind chimes as a part of the healing process versus a simple, relaxing décor item.

What about wind chimes and feng shui cures? Any feng shui cure should keep in mind to not to weaken or damage the main element of a bagua an area.

Any wind chime can be used to promote healing. However, many feng shui designed wind chimes come with traditional symbols, such as a feng shui Chi Lin wind chime for protection or the Mystic Knot wind chime for abundant energy. We here at EcoWindChimes.com sell chakra wind chimes, which is a bit along the same mindful method.

When using a chime as a feng shui cure, attention needs to be  paid to the numbers of the rods/bells. Numbers 6 and 8 are the most popular numbers of bells in a wind chime in order to increase the beneficial energy; while 5 is considered best when you want to suppress bad energy.

You don’t have to be a feng shui expert to promote wellness or healing energy. Simple meditation alongside a beautiful toned wind chime works well, too.

Wind Chime Lawsuit

There sure are some angry people in the world, right?! We recently posted a story about two neighbors in California suing one another over wind chimes. What is the world coming to? I decided to Google the phrase “wind chime lawsuit” and the results were shocking. Apparently this happens more than you think!

After my Google search, I came across over 60,200 links dedicated to multiple lawsuits over wind chimes? I can’t understand why. Wind chimes certainly don’t come close to reaching the decimal breaking point for the ears. In fact, most wind chimes serve a relaxing purpose. So, why are so many neighbors up in arms and up at night?

If you have a crabby neighbor, you may want to run the same Google search I performed. To avoid these issues, you can either talk to the neighbor before you hang the wind chimes or set a time every time you will take the wind chimes down.  I know one person who only makes it appoint to take his wind chimes down when the wind forecast is going to be high.

While it is sad that not everyone enjoys wind chimes, it happens. Make a plan to ensure the right to peace is instilled for both you and your neighbors and try to live in harmony.

Native American Blessings and Windchimes

NativeIndianBlessing

We here at Eco Wind Chimes love reading your emails and stories about how special our products are to you. We recently received a very nice letter from a lady who performed a Native American blessing on her wind chimes. She said every time the chimes chime- she knows the blessing is spreading into the air and among her neighbors. What a nice thought. For those of you who are interested in this tradition, the blessing is below.

Earth teach me stillness

as the grasses are stilled with light.

Earth teach me suffering

as old stones suffer with memory.

Earth teach me humility

as blossoms are humble with beginning.

Earth Teach me caring

as the mother who secures her young.

Earth teach me courage

as the tree which stands alone.

Earth teach me limitation

as the ant which crawls on the ground.

Earth teach me freedom

as the eagle which soars in the sky.

Earth teach me resignation

as the leaves which die in the fall.

Earth teach me regeneration

as the seed which rises in the spring.

Earth teach me to forget myself

as melted snow forgets its life.

Earth teach me to remember kindness

as dry fields weep in the rain.
