In the west, wind chimes often get mistaken as a Feng Shui enhancer for stimulating positive energy or money luck. When in fact, wind chimes are actually used to cure or suppress negative energy, not to enhance. That’s another myth debunked for you!

With all the Feng Shui trinkets, what is the purpose of a wind chime and why does it have to be 6 and metal?

Traditionally, wind chimes are used to neutralize “5 Yellow,” which is the star—or energy—responsible for misfortune, mishaps, accidents, and bad luck.

Because Star 5 is an Earth Element, we have to follow the cycle of the Chinese Five Elements in order to identify the correct Element that would weaken this negative Earth energy.

The correct Element is Metal because Earth produces Metal, which is often compared to like a mother giving birth to a baby. In this case, Earth is the mother and Metal is the baby. So, when Earth sees or is surrounded by Metal, the natural tendency is to be weakened by it. That’s why, we always use the Metal Element to dilute the strength of a negative Earth Element (same for Sickness Star 2).

Once you have identified the correct Element, now you can incorporate the aspects of Metal in the object. Based on the Five Elements table, the characteristics of Metal is like this:

Color: white, silver, metallic

Number: 6 (representing the Heaven Trigram or the Father)

Shape: round, circular, oval

Material: things made of metal like copper, brass, silver, gold, iron, aluminum

Hence, when we recommend using wind chimes, the purpose for it is to cure Star 5 and it has to be 6 metal rod wind chime, not one made of wood (bamboos) or any other number because that will be a different Element. You can see why every part of the object is a Metal Element consideration.

Bonus is that when the chimes come together, it also makes a metal sound!
