It is not by chance that bells are installed first of all during the construction of churches. The sound of the bell is miraculous. Sometimes it is called a ringing icon.
The handbells are a smaller copy of them. And their magical properties are the same, but, if we may say so, in the chamber version. Many musical instruments of religious significance consisted of handbells. It is believed that their sound is able to completely change the atmosphere and even has medicinal properties. Scientists have proven that these small ringing objects clean the room and the human body from harmful bacteria.
Our ancestors knew all these properties. Therefore, every house had a handbell. And for cattle: cows, goats and others, they tied tambourine around their necks. This was done not only to prevent the cattle from getting lost, but also to protect them from diseases, attacks by predators, bites of hornets, gadflies and other bloodsuckers.
The house where a handbell hangs on the front door is blessed. Its inhabitants are happy and successful people. In such families, there is no discord, serious or, even more, incurable diseases. Check it out for yourself! Hang up the handbell, and after a while, your life will begin to change for the better. It will drive away all the negativity from your home.
