Wind Chime Spell
For bringing good news to your door
Folklore claims various reasons for the use of wind chimes in and around the home. They are believed to ward off evil spirits, attract fairies, or give the wind a voice! In this spell, they are used to honor the
element of Air, which is the spirit of communication and the patron of messengers. This spell is particularly good for easing the flow of communication to and from your home, creating a tranquil atmosphere, and bringing good news to your door.
It uses the old wisdom that music and clatter alike drive away evil influences and attract good spirits. Because different noises provoke different reactions within each of us, you will need to find a set of
wind chimes that sound harmonious to you. The feathers used in this spell symbolize birds, which were depicted in ancient times as messengers of the gods.
Their appearance in temples and on statues was regarded as an omen of both good and bad fortune, and their flight patterns were studied in order to predict anything from the future of a newborn baby to the outcome of a battle.
This spell calls upon the powers of Athena, Goddess of communication. It is best cast on a waxing moon for positive energy flow, and on Wednesday, the day of Mercury, planet of communication.
