Learn to Speak the Language of Emotions

Playlists to feel different emotions 

  • Feel Bitter - signals there's some boundary crossed, feeling mistreated

  • Feel Numb - signals alienation, feeling cut off and disconnected

  • Feel Distress - signals something is wrong in a bad way

  • Feel Disturbed - signals disillusionment and a break from reality

  • Feel Grief - signals a loss, a need to let go

  • Feel Enchanted - signals a fantasy, passions, heat

  • Feel Love - signals the pursuit of the whole

  • Feel Redeemed - signals a relief from shame, an acceptance of one's humanity

  • Feel Graceful - signals an ability to harmonise and elevate the experience, not tied down to pettiness or hostilities

  • Feel Playful - it just feels fun to play for the sake of playing

  • Feel Connected - it just feels nice to belong, to truly connect with others, to engage in dialectic reasoning, to share understandings, frustrations and curiosities

  • Feel Powerful - it just feels good to feel in power rather than powerless

  • Feel Hopeful - it just feels nice to innocently look forward to good things

  • Feel Serenity -  it just feels calming to have peace of mind
