The Power of VERIM®

 

Stress reaction is a very positive feature embedded deep into our brain. It helps us to deal with everyday problems and activates in the states of fear. The problem is that in today’s everyday life we are exposed to increasingly many stress invoking factors…

We know today that too much stress may lead to psychological and psychosomatic problems.

VERIM is a biofeedback and self didactic system which will help you to recognize your own stress patterns and you will be able to learn how to “change” yourself.

Change to more self conscious, acting and successful person, leaving the powerless victim of your inner patterns behind.

There are many ways to move on this path, VERIM is one of them, very objective, well tested in seminars, attractive, effective and a modern one.

Still it is just a very good tool and a learning system like an intelligent mirror showing you what is going inside – of you; how your thoughts are connected to your body and what power they have. You can learn to use this power inside of you and change your perception of the real world. Welcome to VERIM!

VERIM ENERGY

What is the inner ENERGY?

What we mean here as energy is the mind’s ability to work properly, and not only the physical energy – the one which you can measure in calories.
We can learn to use this energy of the brain very effectively and not to waste it in unnecessary stress. When we become aware of how the connection of thoughts, emotions to our stress level work together we can also learn to regulate this fine network and tune it to our specific goals like learning, relaxation or even activation.

VERIM ENERGY

ENERGY MODULES:

 

In our turbulent times it is more and more of advantage to be skillful in “stress-energy management”. Why dissipate much of our mind’s energy instead of using it in a constructive way? In this sense focus means the centering, concentration of the mental energy and relaxation is an open state enabling minimum “power consumption” and self-regeneration.

VERIM is a very powerful tool, based on years of experience in seminars and coaching. It combines the objectivity of the measurement and virtual training environment. It consists not only of passive training, in some modules you have to be very active as well – in your mind and body.
In a modern way we use computer based virtual environment for learning, but please do not forget who is learning about whom? In this meaning the learning effect is very, very real and this experience based knowledge you can use in everyday situations.

Sometimes learning with VERIM can be very hard and direct. It simply will be objective. But still it is better to learn what really is, free yourself of self made illusions. Maybe you believe you can relax very well and it may be on the contrary…or you find out you have problems to activate yourself? With the help of VERIM you will find out about your own responses in specific situations and then you will have the choice to use the old patterns or try new strategies.

In the Energy Room you can work on the following key issues of energy management:


VERIM RELAX - ACTIVATE

Self regulation -

  • Relaxation – we define it as the ability to reduce your stress level measured directly by GSR (skin resistance).
  • Activation – as a stress level which can be induced by fear, frustration, aggression, or feeling of joy. Activation cannot be differentiated on this level as positive or negative.

GSR (or skin resistance, electrodermal activity etc.) is a very good psycho-physiological parameter representing your inner arousal at a very deep level (activation of the central-autonomic-nervous system).

VERIM Flexibility

Flexibility – the ability to chose proper strategies for specific tasks and situations. First you have to recognize your patterns and then be able to dissolve them using other possible ways of reacting.

VERIM FOCUS Focus the ability to concentrate, without the necessity to activate yourself too much. You just use the necessary energy and nothing more as you can focus yourself on the specific task. When you are not well focused your mind is wondering around and spending energy on things which are of no concern in this moment. It is wasting the energy. The focus and relaxation are correlated very strongly.
VERIM The Flow

The Flow is a an optimal state of the mind for the specific task. Often it is the ability to stay in focus although the situation activates you very much.

It is not a mystic state at all, but a real psycho-physiological one, where you are very focused, creative and productive.

This is the state you know you give a good presentation, dance performance or solving of equations - just your mind and body are perfectly working together and you are focused on the task, never matter what you do, the things flow without unnecessary effort and you are here and now.


You  cannot force yourself into relaxation. That is why we do not use the terms like “Mind Control”, we more talk of Mind-Tuning and self-regulation.

Tuning and regulation require that you first know where you are and then find a way to open yourself to the desired “change”. In order to do this you need to focus yourself, otherwise you are doing something other but not opening yourself to the state you want be in. You can compare the situation with VERIM and biofeedback in general as trying to learn a child to use the steering wheel. The child has to find out itself what movements it has to do so that it can turn its bobby car to the  left or to the right.  The same with your mind – it has to learn how to reach this or that state, and VERIM is just your environment. It objectively shows you which direction you take and sometimes provoke you for a learning experience... But you will learn yourself and decide where to drive.

VERIM ACTIVATION

Fast activation and  slow relaxation

For many of us it is much more difficult to activate ourselves than to relax. As relaxation is so important for regeneration or learning the more activation is important for our survival. Without the activation we would not survive as a species. Observe how fast a reptile is changing from relaxation into flight or fight? This same process is encoded into our bran structure as well.

luzio

Activation can go high very rapidly because it is so important for our life.

VERIM BURN OUT

Multiple activation and resulting high energy level


Luzio

Relaxation can wait… and takes some time – it is a secondary for our survival.

 

 

Today we are exposed to so many threads, the stressors, that we have no much time left to come to peace and relax.

We tend to stay at a higher activation level and it works well... for some time.

If we do not break this habit we will be faced with burn out syndromes sooner or later.

 

 

Here you can see what is possible:

VERIM RECORD

A GSR measurement of a Thai business women, Mrs. Daeng Oraphan in a VERIM seminar in Thailand.

In the first seminar in February 2009 she made 459% GSR change with open eyes and 629% with closed eys.


For comparison, a good result is already when you can relax 100%.



Two month later, after working with VERIM she achieved in the next seminar word breaking record of 821%!

VERIM RESOURCE

What are resources and which learning aims you pursue with
the modules in the resource room?


Human resources develop out of a combination of thoughts (knowledge) and the dealing with your feelings.

VERIM RESOURCE ROOM

RESOURCE MODULES:

 

One of the most central resources in the learning process of the emotional intelligence is itself becoming conscious of personal qualities; that means to develop a self-confidence.

In the perception and with the knowledge about our strengths and weaknesses so we can form more intelligently the access to ourselves and to our surroundings.

The concept „Humanly Resource“ comes in all fields of work stronger and stronger in the centre of the attention. The knowledge and the social intelligence of the employees show a determining factor of an enterprise in an information society.

Important resources can be:

- Patience -

To be patient in handling with
To react at demands and difficulties with a good feeling balance,
to meet problems with patience, to develop the general patience

- Frustration tolerance / contact with failure -

To accept contradictions and to react in a constructive way to them.
Learning to handle with loss and defeats and to admit mistakes


- Concentration and good response time
-

To remain a longer time in the Focus and to be able to react fast appropriately

- "The Flow" or „the relaxed concentration“ -

To remain concentrated, carefully and ready to the action and,
nevertheless, well relaxed - unites in the "Flow" wonderfully

- „Mind of tuning“ or self regulation -

  • To react to external stress factors not by rigid reaction patterns but to be able to act consciously in a self defined way in a given situation - not to react, but to act –
  • To investigate own feelings and to name them
  • To recognise internal blockades
  • To visualize oneself in situations and to solve problems


VERIM

PATIENCE

50 coloured cubes appear on your screen and in an unpredictable manner they disappear again.
Click every cube once - and they becomes slightly transparent. If you click by mistake a transparent cube the play begins again from the start. Each time you make a mistake the time is marked on the plot.

This module is ideal for:

  • To reach an improvement of the contact with failure and frustration (frustration tolerance)
  • To learn patience
  • To learn selfregulation (Mind tuning)
  • To shorten reaction time
  • To develop "The Flow"
  • The development of a sensitivity for internal changes at the psycho physiological level
  • To explore connections between state of excitement, emotions and thoughts




 

VERIM Patience

With this module you are able to play properly with the “mouse“, to catch cubes and to experience their psycho-interactive behaviour.


VERIM Biathlon

With this module you are able to pass and to train typical mental phases of the biathlon like

  • Activation - running  
  • Relaxation - preparation for shooting
  • Concentration – shooting


BIATHLON

This module is made up of two phases and each phase divides itself into the segments Activation, Relaxation and Concentration.

In the activation you must mobilise your forces, and move your body into an active state. A feedback about your activation you receive by means of two rings which will move faster at a suitable activity.

In the relaxation it is your job to be settled down again. Your efforts are indicated by turning discs which come with success to the standing position.

In the concentration, consisting of a balanced mixture between activation and relaxation, you are asked in the shooting gallery to deliver shots on targets. Try to move the crosshair in the middle, while you concentrate upon your aim.

 

This tool is ideal for:

  • To learn self regulation (Mind tuning)
  • To develop "The Flow"
  • The development of a sensitivity for internal changes at the psycho physiological level
  • To investigate connections between state of excitement, emotions and thoughts



PROBLEM PRISON

Select three problem fields in your life, and write this in suitable three fields “high level“, “extreme level“ and “low of level“.
Now you travel along your problem fields. You only go past to the “high level“ field, while you relax. To go past to the field “extreme level“, you must activate yourself. With the field “low level“ you have the free choice how you would like to pass the problem. While you try to pass the single problem fields, get involved please in your respective problems and, besides, observe your reactions.

 

This is an ideal tool for:

  • Emotionelle Problembereiche zu erkennen und gezielt auf deren Auflösung zu arbeiten
  • Eigene Gefühle zu erkennen
  • Alternative Strategien zur emotionalen Blockadenlösung auszuprobieren
  • Selbstregulierung (Mind-Tuning) zu erlernen

VERIM INTELLIGENCE ROOM

INTELLIGENCE MODULES:

VERIM Intelligence



 

The “Intelligence Room“ creates an optimum space for learning
of the self-assessment and for the support of the self recognition.

The GSR is an easy, but very direct, indicator of the stress level.

A single thought or feeling can cause a change of the skin resistance.


In this training module your abilities in the self-assessment are mostly coached by means of the plot. You will quickly learn to recognise your own psycho physiological state in a better way. If you can recognise your state better than your knowledge about yourself will grow.

You will also be able to understand better the connections between the thoughts, to the feelings and the internal psychophysiology of the people around you . Thereby you become "more intelligent" also at the emotional level. You will thereby become "more sensitive" for yourself as well as for the people around you. By this knowledge you can make new decisions, because the internal processes become clearer for you. You may be surprised to find out how few people do act "logically", and how many react "emotionally". The logic is very often used to the explanation of an emotional act.

If you have taken the step to the own introspection, your vision about yourself will possibly change. Your self-esteem will gain strength, but also self-doubt can appear at the beginning. Do not be concerned, this is only one part of your learning process. Too often we act as „emotional robots“ of being incapable to make our own, responsible decisions. If you, however you have seen these processes and you have integrated the new knowledge into your life, you will also feel no more needs to fall back in the old behaviour patterns. They will simply allow your new freedom with which it brings a new responsibility within oneself.

 

 

VERIM


VERIM MUSIC PLOT

With this module you are able to draw your GSR curve and play a sound changing to your GSR.




MUSIC PLOT

Here the changes of your skin resistance are recorded as a curve and are returned as a sound. According to your physiological reaction the sounds change in this module. Try to move consciously between the sounds or to stay with some sounds for a self-determined time. This is a very open tool, with (almost) no limits to recording time and possible application.

With this module you are able

  • to make a long time recording of the GSR: Monitoring including setting markers during the session (as in every VERIM module using the F1 to F12 keys which are key coded on the plot)
  • to train with eyes closed (sound feedback)
  • to show how sensitive the GSR is to your thoughts and feelings







 

 

 

 

 

PLOT IT

In this module you draw with the mouse the plot of your skin resistance in the way you feel it by yourself and then you can compare this subjective curve to your really measured curve.
The program will evaluate the correlation as well.

 

This module is ideal for:

  • Development of sensitivity for internal changes at the psycho- physiological level
  • To investigate connections between state of excitement, emotions and thoughts


 

 

 

 

VERIM Music Plot

With this module you are able to draw your subjective GSR plot, and to compare this plot after the meeting to the really measured curve.

 

VERIM Match Curve

With this module you are able to learn to recognise your measured curve GSR, and to make a distinction from the simulated curve.


MATCH CURVE

In this module two measuring curves are shown to you at the same time. Develop strategies to find out which curve is yours.

This is an ideal tool for:

  • To learn faster your self-assessment (GSR)
  • The development of a sensitivity for internal changes at the psycho physiological level
  • To investigate connections between state of excitement, emotions and thoughts

VERIM NETWORK

VERIM INTELLIGENCE ROOM

Network MODULE:

Why training in a network?

 

The ProNet user have the possibility to train in pairs, teams or groups.

 

But what is so different while training alone or with others? We can say from the seminar experience –“Everything!”. The social situation changes our inner responses diametrically. In seminars we have seen how masters in personal training fail completely in team training.


The group psychointeractivity of VERIM was granted the European patent in 2006.
It can be applied to tele-coaching settings but may lead to a cultural revolution in art and media as well.

At the present time we offer two network modules and are already working on the next ones. The network modules have been tested in seminars and we offer a “VERIM Coordinator” extra module controlling via the server up to 16 users.

 

 

VERIM


VERIM FOLLOW MEWith this module you are able chat with others in the network and communicate via GSR level as well.

FOLLOW ME

Follow Me is an open network tool and has no fixed goals to achieve. It may be empathy or open coaching training. You see yourself and your partner(s) as rotating rings, which correspond to your GSR change. In the chat room you can exchange messages and see the reaction to them.

This is an ideal tool for:

  • Empathy-Training, Negotiation-Training, Leadership –Training
  • The development of a sensitivity for internal changes at the psycho physiological level in yourself and others
  • team building
  • To try out alternative non-conflict strategies
  • To learn the Mind-Tuning in a social context
