What Makes Reframing Successful

1. Concept

Experience has shown that there is no point in just working on its individual areas. Instead, the NIKU App offers a holistic concept:

  • In the beginning, the app will ask you questions about your wishes and goals.
  • Then, you evaluate 64 needs.
  • Based on those, your "needs profile" will be created. In this profile, unmet needs can be identified.
  • Now, you develop individual scenarios from texts and pictures.
  • You now experience these scenarios — which can be edited at any time —over and over again in your mind, for at least 14 days.
  • This will restructure your thinking and feelings. Reframing turns your dreams into reality.

2. Use of the App

Interacting with the app requires care, truthfulness, honesty and love for oneself and the surrounding community. 

The desires and goals you enter at the beginning contribute to the realization of what can be improved in your life by means of satisfying psychological needs.

During the “selection of needs”, 64 needs are offered for evaluation. Don’t worry; you won’t have to evaluate all 64 needs in one day. The algorithm of the app creates an individual needs profile and identifies unmet needs.

You can then formulate scenarios and short stories.  You’ll write texts and use images that meet your unfulfilled needs. There are no limits to your imagination; you can incorporate elements that you have observed in everyday life, seen at the movies or read in a book. You can even use the ideas you have had during a walk. 

You yourself are the main actor of the events in your scenarios. You’ll get to immerse yourself in imaginative situations you have craved, but have not yet experienced in your own biography.

What does it feel like when you have achieved or received something you long for? This is the emotional experience you are striving for and want to internalize.

This intensity, along with the careful handling of oneself, is cultivated actively and without interruption over 14 consecutive days.

The scenario, i.e., the text input and the images, work like a script. The contents consolidate into an inner experience. The driving force is the concentration on the feeling “What is good for me”, “What nourishes me”. This feeling slowly begins to take hold. Just like a grain that forms roots and develops into a plant.

Scenarios are planted that enrich you with what you have lacked in your psychological development so far.

3. Daily Repetition as a Guarantee for Success

The first evening after the text input – preferably in the moment shortly before falling asleep —ideas will emerge from the text and the pictures. These ideas—repeated shortly before falling asleep, 14 days in a row—become memories and manifest themselves as “Neuroimplants”. Even in the morning, after waking up, you should remember your scenarios as emotionally as possible.

For 14 days in a row, you should adjust the contents in the morning and in the evening and correct the images that stimulate you. Your intuition will help you find out what is necessary to satisfy your needs. 

The result: you become one with yourself again and can develop new, positive life perspectives through the targeted aftercare of unfulfilled needs.

The NIKU method of reframing needs is the key to a better self and thus to a more fulfilled being.
