Wind Chimes and Healing

There is something to be said for the healing touch of another human being. Nurses often practice touch medicine, holding hands with elderly or dying patients.  People get massages because they offer holistic help to the mind and body.  But did you know that wind chimes can provide the same thing?

Wind chimes relax the mind. If you suffer from anxiety, depression, aching bones, or even Multiple Sclerosis – wind chimes can help your mind and body in several different ways. The chimes offer a relaxing impact to all nearby regardless of health aliment or not. Some people even play wind chime music at work to help them pass the time, stay calm, and focus.

Below are a few of our recommend products that we sell at EcoWindChimes.com to provide extra-relaxation for mental clarity and relaxation, all though any of our products will provide the same benefits.

Halloween Wind Chimes Spell

We are a week away form Halloween. And we here at EcoWindChimes.com have a secret and spooky spell to have an amazing Halloween party with wind chimes.

First, gather all your guests around your wind chimes. Make sure the wind chimes are outdoors. Then, make sure any outside garden lights are turned off. If you have a street light nearby, that is OK. Make sure every single participant has a white candle that is lit.

In the circle, chant the following saying,”Halloween night is full of fright. Halloween night is full of ghouls. Halloween night is when we break the rules.” Now, you as the leader must say that you are going to summons the dead and when they arrive, the wind chimes will make a clatter.

Talk out loud in your scariest voice and do everything you can to convince your party goers that the wind chimes will move on their own. Then, with now warning. grab and scream the person next to you. The scare will make the group jump and then give them a laugh!

Make sure to pass on your Halloween wind chime spell to others for next year’s celebrations.

Legendary Wind Chimes

White-witch-narnia-xlg-44573829-mdn

In Feng Shui, wind chimes are believed to bless your home with prosperity and happiness. Hanging a set by your front door is said to bring  good energy every time the wind blows. But did you know that wind chimes are often used in white Wicca ceremonies? Yep, it is true!

Yes, there is one ceremony, called the Peace Ceremony, that white witches use to infuse their homes with harmony 24/7. How do you do this?  Well, you can use any of our wind chimes (or home made wind chimes) and incorporate the directions below during your ceremony.

1. Get your wind chimes out and hang them above the inside of your front door.

2.  Light a white candle at 8 pm on a Saturday night.

3. Repeat the following phrase, “Peace to the east, peace to the west, quite to the north, quite to the south, may no trials or tribulations enter this house.”

4. Leave the wind chimes up for a total of 8 days and then move them to the front, outside of your home.

That’s it!

Scary Halloween Wind Chimes

Hi All,

Today, I want to dedicate my blog post to scary, Halloween-themed wind chimes. Sure, I could recommend some of my products at EcoWindChimes.com to you for Halloween, but the truth is that we don’t sell novelty wind chimes. I sell wind chimes designed to last forever- or close to it.  This doesn’t mean I don’t live novelty wind chimes or holidays, in fact- I love them!

So, I spent the afternoon tracking down the best Halloween-themed wind chime photos to share with you. Some of wind chimes are purchased, others are made, but they are all very clever! Have your own Halloween-themed wind chime photo to share? Connect with me on Facebook and post the photo!

How to Make “Wind Chime” Bath Salts

This might sound a little odd, but we promise you it will lead to the most relaxing bath experience ever!  If you make homemade bath salts and combine them with a wind chime over the bath tub- your energy will be realigned. So, if you are feeling a bit “out of whack”, try making the following bath salts. Then, pour in a 1/2 cup of the salts into a warm bath and soak under a wind chime.

To make:

1 cup  Sea Salt (Fine Grain)
4 ounces (1/2 cup) Grapeseed oil
2 ounces (1/4 cup) Avocado oil
20 drops essential oil – lavender or rosemary scented

Mix the ingredients together.  Let rest of one hour. Use!

Why Buy American-Made This Holiday Season

We here at EcoWindChimes.com only sell American-made and American-sourced products. We pride ourselves on this and the quality of the products we sell.  That’s why we want to dedicate today’s blog post to the top 5 reasons you should consider buying American products this holiday season.

1. No Western nation can ultimately compete on price with a country willing to massively exploit  its own people. When you buy only American-made products, you insist on a higher standard and fair wages.

2. The growing lack of USA’s ability to manufacture many products is strategically unsound. When you buy American-made goods, you foster American independence. We are no longer reliant upon competing countries.

3. Jobs shipped abroad almost never return. When you buy goods made in the USA, you help keep the American economy growing.

4. You support child labor laws when you buy American. When you buy American you support safe working conditions and child labor laws. Non-American made products exploit children in the production process.

5. When you choose products made in the USA, you contribute to the payment of an honest day’s wages for an honest day’s work.

We are hopeful you will decide to primarily buy American-made products this holiday season, including our wind chimes.

Popular Wind Chime Cures

Wind chimes can be a holistic cure for many scenarios within the home. This got us to thinking about other holistic and feng shui cures available for the home – or any type of space. Here we go;

First, wind chimes . Brass and copper wind chimes promote moving energy, perfect for placement in the front door of your home office.  If you feel an energy block anywhere in your home, hand a wind chime outside the entrance’s door frame.

Second, according to AboutHealing.com, “A running horse or charging chariot represents success or opportunity coming your way. It is important that you place the head of your horse entering your space and not leaving it.”

Third, bowls of fresh fruit represent the good life! As you eat your “wealth” , it is important to replenish the bowl. An empty fruit bowl reflects diminishing chi.

So, as you head into the weekend, make sure you have your wind chimes in the proper place, find a ceramic horse to draw in opportunity, and place plenty of fresh fruit in a bowl to help money and healthy chi come into your home!

Until next time,
