Seelisch

Lit. “soully,” but it means mentally, emotionally, psychologically. Not to be confused with selig (ZAY lig), which means “blessed.” Seelisch is used in serious heartfelt German discussions between friends. It puts the conversation on a new serious footing, grounds the talk. From the heart? From the soul? DEEPer. Deeper and wider? “For real,” if you only say “for real” once.

(ZAY lish.)
