What is Sheng Chi?
Sheng Chi is a positive type of chi, moving gently (as opposed to Shar Chi which is the result of chi moving too fast in a straight line) and is considered uplifting and harmonious. Though physical locations such as houses, offices, and parks can have this auspicious form of chi, it is also possible for individuals to create Sheng Chi. Many times, Feng Shui practitioners will term it as Wealth Chi or Auspicious Chi because they are synonymous with the results of Sheng Chi. Below is a list of sources but are not limited to:
Sheng Chi Sources:
Sea that is in motion but calm
Parks with a pleasant setting
Forests rich in life
Homes filled with laughter
Individuals with optimism
Sheng Chi itself is the best form of chi to have, but it is a state that should be maintained if possible. Unfortunately, its state can change into Si Chi or Shar Chi if allowed to stagnate or move too fast.

Thus, placing auspicious enhancers (be it plants, lights, wealth bowls) would let it slow down and take on more beneficial properties.
