WWhat is the Iom?
Technically, The Wild Divine Iom is a patented scientific instrument that functions as an alternative input device. In Wild Divine, you might have to relax your muscles and calm down to move left on the screen. The Iom makes that possible. It picks up your body’s extremely subtle signals of emotion, stress, calmness, tension, happiness, and lets you progress based on your ability to control yourself. You get instant feedback on changes in your thoughts, emotions, breathing, posture, and levels of calm or stress. The Iom is very simple to use, it plugs into any standard USB port on Mac or PC computers, and interfaces with Wild Divine software to give you an interactive experience like no other.
What can be monitored active Biofeedback data while practicing the program
Wild Divine’s Active Feedback component measures a player’s Skin Conductance Level (SCL) and Heart Rate Variability (HRV).
SCL measures sweat gland activity. Increased perspiration indicates increased autonomic nervous system activation, which is associated with increased energy-both positive, like excitement, and negative, like nervousness.
HRV is calculated from the differences in heart rate from one heartbeat to another. No two intervals are exactly the same, and you need a device more sophisticated than just taking your pulse to determine it.
Greater HRV is a very worthwhile goal. In fact, people who exhibit this tend to live more vigorously and enjoy life more. Parts of Wild Divine’s Programs require users to attain this goal in order to move forward in the game.
The more Coherence – the more synchronize with the heart and boost the immune system
Examining HRV is the fastest growing area in feedback training and it can provide important methods of working with our own physiology. The Institute of HeartMath is one of many research groups that has been studying the effects of greater HRV.
It combines research-based techniques and unique technology to help people fight the stresses of everyday life. Its research suggests that when you increase your HRV you can reach a state of coherence within the power spectrum frequencies of the heart that then gets the brain to synchronize with the heart and boost the immune system.
This coherence pattern in the heart frequencies is also known as the heart’s Resonant Frequency. Meditation, slow and easy abdominal breathing, or connecting with positive emotions are three researched ways for getting this desired pattern of both strength and balance.
By synchronizing your heart rate with the breath (two skills that can be gained through using Wild Divine’s programs, you can quite easily reach your heart’s Resonant Frequency.
Also, when we are in this state of coherence, its desired vibration pattern ripples out around us in an electromagnetic doughnut shape detectable eight or more feet in all directions. It even shows up in the brainwaves of anyone we touch! Who wouldn’t want to experience the positive effects of such a state more and more often?
Self stress management program by monitoring active biofeedback
For example, they might just automatically let the inhale and exhale become equal in their breathing and deepen it a little bit. This would result in their going into the desired pattern of increased heart rate variability. Or they might accomplish the same thing by connecting with positive emotions. Continuing to play can result in a training effect, improving the capacity of the body to healthfully regulate itself.
The game gives players more awareness of the emotional, mental-and potentially spiritual-correlation of physical states. When players acquire enough awareness of how to make the shift from one state to another, they can begin to do this voluntarily. They can have integrated what we call our BEST team: Body, Emotions, Spirit and Thought.
