Sometimes you don’t have the opportunity to talk with a friend or counsellor about a particular situation – in this case the Gefühlsmonster® cards are suitable to resolve your own emotional state in this situation quickly and comprehensively. You can do this with our free Online Emotion Scan or with your own monster cards. In difficult situations, it is recommended to also choose a monster at the end which can help you feel better in the situation.
The Gefühlsmonster cards are also a tool to get to know you better. Very cautiously, at the pace and with the steps which you are ready to go.
Feelings are contagious. Therefore, if you look at the pictures of the Gefühlsmonster scan, you can discover how you currently feel. For this purpose, it is important that you manage to put aside your ideas about what should be – sometimes this takes a little while. Be prepared to play, just consider “How do I feel right now?” and let your gaze wonder. This is best done alone. So that this tool can accompany you for a while until you succeed to better feel, also physically feel, how you are at the moment. What you gain from it is that through the recognition of your feelings you can influence whether and how to express them.
