Ancient Chinese Feng Shui believes that by placing bells on the inside of each outside door of a home, attached to a red cord (ribbon) that this will signal Heaven to come here now and protect the inhabitants of that home from thieves. It is further believed that if a burglar is in the area and looking towards your home that they will feel it is too secure or powerful to break into.
Using 3 bells of the ancient Chinese tradition offers a blessing for Heaven, Earth, and Mankind. 3 is lucky in Feng Shui. Christians know things happen in 3’s called the Trinity, for Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Many cultures honor the use of 3. It is known as a Universal law that occurrences happen in 3’s, the 3 Fold Blessing. Here in America we always notice that things happen for good and bad in 3’s. You will have 3 good things and then 3 things that aren’t so good that happen. Even celebrities seem to die 3 in a week.
Get some inexpensive red ribbon at Wal Mart or a fabric store and cut the end in a diagonal so it will slide easily through the bells. Leave some extra so you will have the length to tie it onto the door knob and clip the excess if you like. The bells can be found where you buy the ribbon. Any kind of bells will do for this to symbolically bring Heavenly Protection to your home.
You will notice that I used bells of many colors in the shape of a cluster of grapes for abundance energy. All of these colors invoke the Feng Shui energies on the respective colors of the bells. See The Feng Shui Power Key http://www.powerfengshui.info/articles/heaven_increases/powerkey1.main.shtml to decide which colors to use to bring the desired energies into play if you use various colors of bells to create your own Grape Cluster of Bells.
Having bells on the door knobs also warns you when the door is being opened which is also good if you don’t have an alarm system to buzz each time someone opens the door. Every time the bells ring it is also a Chinese Feng Shui tradition to believe that the bells break up the negative energies that may be entering your Sacred Space. Bells ringing to break up negativity I spoke of in the November EZine on Space Clearing because it is an instant way to change the energies. See http://powerfengshui.info/EZine/1108.html#Clearing for the Space Clearing article.
This is an inexpensive way to bring Heavenly Protection and break up that negative (poison) Ch’i.
