What is Si Chi?

Si Chi is stagnant or dying chi - reducing, lessening, fading and has an overall negative impact. It is considered to be the polar opposite of Sheng Chi, which is considered to be positive chi. Disorderly or decaying places/objects are considered to be strong sources of this negative type of chi. Many will confuse Si Chi and Shar Chi by putting them together. Si Chi is pretty much inactive while Shar Chi has a much more active state. Below is a list of sources but are not limited to:

Si Chi Sources:
  • Decayed areas
  • Hospitals for the sick
  • Exhausted soil/land
  • Abandoned locations
  • Dark and damp rooms
  • Dying vegetation

  • Si Chi is something you want to avoid and the main culprit of this negative chi being created is: letting your home slowly get cluttered and unkept. Interestingly, Si Chi can sometimes produce Sheng Chi, a common example would be dying plants renourishing the soil which will start its cycle again. Depressing sources such as unhappy individuals or sick animals are also strong sources of Si Chi.
