What is Shar Chi?

Shar Chi is what you can classify as harmful/killing energy. Shar Chi is primarily the result of negative surroundings and layouts. However, ill meaning entities such as competitors and unscrupulous people can also create additional shar chi in your surroundings. Because chi itself can be transformed to another state, sheng chi (positive chi) can easily be transformed into shar chi if it is allowed to travel too fast in a straight line (imagine a long highway facing your main entrance in a t-junction). Below is a list of common causes but are not limited to:

Shar Chi Sources:
  • Poison Arrows from sharp objects
  • Home near a cemetery
  • Chi moving at too fast a speed
  • Overly competitive acquaintances
  • Oppressive higher level (e.g. low ceiling)
  • Abandoned/ruined objects

  • Shar chi can be easily transformed back into sheng chi by making sure there is either a filter or something that will convert the existing chi. Long hallways can easily generate shar chi due to its straight path, try putting bright lights or laying out harmonious objects such as plants or Feng Shui items to let the chi moving in a more winding and gentle fashion. Should an entrance face an inauspicious entity resulting in shar chi entering, make sure the entry point is remedied.
