In feng shui, the quality of chi can be separated into three distinct categories. The good stuff is sheng chi, the bad stuff sha chi and si chi.
Here’s an example of sheng chi: (vibrant)
Sha chi: (aggressive)
Si Chi: (decaying)
In the simplest of terms, the goal is to reduce sha and si chi and add an abundance of sheng chi.
