My Experience In The Zone | ITZ 2

Have you ever experienced moments where you felt completely immersed in your work or a hobby, losing all sense of time? This is often referred to as "the zone." Today, I want to share my journey into discovering and living in the zone, not just in my art but in every aspect of my life. Let's dive in!

Early Childhood and Art

From a young age, art became my sanctuary. As a child, did you have a way to express your deepest emotions? For me, art was that outlet. I listened more than I spoke, absorbing the emotions around me—death, hunger, joy, abundance. These emotions poured into my creations, allowing me to process and release them.

Detaching from Outcomes

One of the most valuable lessons I learned was to detach from the outcome of my creations. Have you ever felt frustrated by focusing too much on the end result? By letting go, I found freedom in my creative process. I realized that my artwork wasn't a reflection of me but of the emotions I had absorbed and expressed with color.

Channeling Emotions through Colors

This technique of channeling emotions taught me how to capture and reflect feelings that were not my own. Have you tried expressing emotions through creative outlets like painting or writing? This practice allowed me to explore narratives and themes that I was living, turning each piece into a story.

Developing "Mind Anchoring"

Creating art became a ritual of introspection and emotional analysis. I would isolate myself, ask what I was feeling, identify the source, and decide whether to change the feeling if it was inconvenient. Over time, this process became second nature, leading to the development of "Mind Anchoring."

Applying Techniques to Everyday Life

When the physical war ended, I began interacting with more people and facing new challenges unrelated to art. Have you ever applied a technique from one area of your life to another? I started using my "Mind Anchoring" techniques in daily life, allowing me to stay in the zone more consistently.

Living in the Now

Being in the zone is all about the present moment. How often do you find yourself truly living in the now? Through my experiences, I learned that creativity and mindfulness are intertwined. Every moment became an opportunity for creation, transcending time and connecting me to multiple dimensions of reality.


In essence, being in the zone is a state of being fully present and creatively engaged in every moment. It's about using your inner creativity to enhance your life, not just in artistic endeavors but in everything you do.
