WISDOM and MAGNA INSPIRANTE

Magna Inspirante is a Latin phrase and means “great inspiration” with regard to life and well being. It represents an extraordinary selection of knowledge and experience gathered from around the world, from East and West alike, plus Lita’s own discoveries during the last thirty years.

It is not enough to learn, you have to live according to your learnings and use your knowledge. Wisdom is knowledge applied.

Our view on life and health is founded on the laws of nature and a holistic way of thinking. Sometimes change comes to you ‘unwanted’ and you find yourself in new circumstances. Accept what you cannot change and go with the flow. Perception is everything.

We would like to give you an overview and we will cover several of the topics in our books.

Magna Inspirante covers many topics with focus on life and well being. Some of the topics are listed below. Please explore the list:

Astrology

Western astrology (12 zodiac signs) as well as eastern astrology (e.g. 9 star ki and the Chinese animals).

Ayurveda

Ayurveda is a very old system of natural healing and treatment that has its origins in the Vedic culture of India. Traditional Chinese Medicine has it’s roots in Ayurveda.

Ayurveda ‘life-knowledge’ reminds us that health is the balanced and dynamic integration between our environment, body, mind, and spirit.

Recognizing that human beings are part of nature, Ayurveda describes three fundamental energies that govern our inner and outer environments. Known as Vata (Wind), Pitta (Fire), and Kapha (Earth). These energies are responsible for the characteristics of our mind and body. Each of us has a unique proportion of the three forces that shapes our nature and can be used to analyze imbalances and heal us.

Bagua

The Bagua is a flexible template which can be laid over the plans of your home to show which areas of your home relate to the different aspects of your life. The Bagua is divided into 9 areas including the centre (Tai Chi) where all the 8 different directions (energies) meet. The centre is also known as the Tao or Dao. See this.

Balance

Balance is not only walking on a line.

Speaking about lifestyle more things come in to play to keep a harmonious balance of yin & yang (dark/light, silence/activity etc.).

Also the five elements (water, metal, earth, fire, tree) are pieces in the puzzle. The center of the Bagua, Tao or Dao represents ‘the now’ and the perfect balance.

Breathing

Naturally, breathing is very important to stay alive.

For most people though breathing can be practiced more consciously. Some people have the habit of holding their breath when they concentrate. If you only use your breath with short breaths you can benefit from taking more deep breaths in your stomach as well.

Breathing and meditation connecting to your inner light and higher self.

Environment

The influence from our surroundings is sometimes overlooked. Some important factors to consider are:
1. Light – the sun and the light are very important for our well being, our moods and our health in general.
2. Green plants – with living plants you can create balance e.g. in a room.
3. Colours – colours are a manifestation of light and energy. Different colours have different meanings.
4. Shape (e.g. sharp corners or round soft corners on a table make a difference).
5. Symbolism – symbols that we choose to surround ourselves with e.g. in artwork mirror what’s going on in our thoughts and lives.
6. Predessor chi (energy/vibrations) from the owner before you.
7. Electromagnetic fields (EMF) from electrical appliances and Geopathic stress (GS) from the earth.
8. Materials – many materials are not healthy for us and create pollution.
9. Interior design – wherever you live, in town or the country, you can arrange for your immediate environment so that you receive maximum support and nourishment by your home or workplace.
10. Clutter – clutter does not really do you any good if you want to create a supporting environment for your health, happiness, vitality and creativity.
11. Architecture (e.g. buildings, gardens) – very often modern buildings and architecture are harmful to our well being.
12, The landscape – how buildings are situated in the landscape matters. Also the placement of furniture in a room matters. As a general rule you need protection from behind either the landscape or perhaps a wall when you are inside.
13. Sound and smell influence us. Music for instance can change the atmosphere. As Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart said: ‘If music is food for love, play it all.’

Exercise

Life is movement and we all need to do some exercise every day. Most people walk but you can run, swim, practice Qi Gong, yoga or something else.

Find out what suits you and do some exercise every day.

I Ching 

The eight trigrams are fundamental building blocks that form the sixty-four hexagrams of the I Ching (Book of Changes) one of the most important books in world history.

A trigram is a three-tier combination of solid (yang) and broken (yin) lines, and the eight trigrams thus formed are said to symbolise different phenomena in the universe. Each trigram is associated with a series of correspondences, including an archetypical family member.

The I Ching is a book of divination and a book of wisdom, with instruction provided for sixty-four hexagrams, these sixty-four hexagrams being made up of every possible combination of the eight trigrams.

There are two circular arrangements of the eight trigrams known as the Former Heaven Sequence and the Later Heaven Sequence.

The Former Heaven Sequence represents an ideal reality, where all eight trigrams are in their natural order and balanced by their counterparts, heaven above, earth below etc. The Former Heaven Sequence is usually found on talismans and mirrors designed to ward off ’bad energy’.

The Later Heaven Sequence is the practical application of the trigrams to the reality of a universe that is not ideal, and is moving, transforming, and interacting.
The Later Heaven Sequence of trigrams forms the basis of the Feng Shui Bagua.


The Bagua is a flexible template which can be laid over the plans of your home to show which areas of your home relate to the different aspects of your life. The Bagua is divided into 9 areas including the centre (Tai Chi) where all the 8 different directions (energies) meet. The centre is also known as the Tao or Dao. See this.

The most precise use of the Bagua chart is when you form a circle and draw 8 equal ’triangular pieces’ of the circle from the centre and out. The area in the middle is gathering all the energies and thereby representing your overall well being and health.

When all the 8 areas around you in the centre are balanced you are in balance too. Working with each of the eight areas creates the perfect balance. Often you see the use of nine boxes/equal squares or grids and that is okay too, but not as precise as using the ’triangular pieces’.

Mind, body, spirit 

Understanding your physical body and the connection to your feelings, thoughts and your spiritual side (who you are).

Our brains are so powerful. Your beliefs are of great importance to your health and well being. We have five different brain frequencies (Beta, Alpha, Theta, Delta and Gamma), and each frequency is measured in cycles per second (Hz) and has its own set of characteristics representing a specific level of brain activity and a unique state of consciousness.

Our ‘reality’ is not made up of outside influences, but it actually consists of our thoughts, beliefs and mindset. We are the controllers of our reality. Therefore, by learning about the deeper states of consciousness, you can open your subconscious mind and create your reality at will and by mental training. No conditions are good or bad. They just are.

In fact there are many things you can do to take responsibility for and to help yourself. Faith and prayers are also important. Knowing there is a bigger picture where we all are part of a constantly changing world is essential too (Evolution).

Medicine for your mind, body and spirit can be homeopathic, herbs, plants, flowers from nature. Acupuncture, meditation and the like.

In our view western modern thinking and lifestyle can benefit from ancient Eastern philosophy and go hand in hand to improve our every day lives. We would like to spread the words and give as many as possible useful knowledge and powerful tools to create good vibrations for themselves.

By the way, it is so important that you start with yourself. You can use the simple remedies mentioned in our e-book ’5 tips to a better health and more well being’ both at home and on your working place.

Nutrition

We all have different needs depending on where we are born, where we live and our personal chi (energy). Digestion is of great importance. What you eat matters and how your body digests the food matters even more.

Sleep

Sleep is essential to your well being. During sleep your body and mind recover and you get refreshed especially in the delta state of mind 1-2 Hz that you reach in deep sleep.

Sleepng directions (the direction where you point your head when you lie down) like east, southeast, west and northwest are known as beneficial directions.

Our modern lifestyle often means too little sleep and some people are awake during the night where our body prefers to relax and recover in sleep.

Tao or Dao

Tao or Dao signifying ‘way’, ‘path’ or ‘route’. An intuitive knowing of ‘life’ through actual living experience of one’s everyday being. The fundamental nature or essence of the universe. The natural dynamic balance between opposites like yin yang.

The bagua, a symbol commonly used to represent the Dao and its pursuit. In the centre of the circular arrangements of the eight trigrams known as the Bagua you find the Dao.

Please see the information about I Ching to learn more about the bagua.

Timing

Understanding the cycles of every year, month and day, and the shifting phases of our lives are part of the puzzle. This you will learn through 9 star ki astrology.

The ocean is affected e.g. by the full-moon and so are the plants and the animals. The animals live according to the time of the year and the time of the day. Many people do not take notice of the influence from nature and many of us do not listen to our bodies and ignore the importance of following the cycles and the rhythm of nature.

Traditional Chinese Medicine

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) has a holistic approach to health and well being.

Among others TCM includes: 9 ways of healthy ’treatments’; an understanding of yin & yang polarities in our physical world; and the so called five elements a teaching of water, tree, fire, earth and metal energies interacting together; meridians and chi flow in our body as well as in our surroundings. All these elements play important roles in our overall well being.

The 9 different ways are: 1. Feng Shui (the flower of  TCM) 2. Energy exercises/ movements like Qi Gong 3. Meditation 4. Nutrition 5. Astrology 6. Moxa-treatments 7. Herbal medicine 8. Massage 9. Acupuncture
