How to Turn Junking Into A Zen Like Experience
I was back in the JUNK ZONE yesterday. Yes I did initially go out shopping with some ideas of what I was hunting for....but I switched gears and entered the JUNK ZONE. What exactly is the JUNK ZONE you ask?
Banish Pre-Existing Ideas Of What You Are Looking For
Simply stated, to be truly in the JUNK ZONE you have to banish all pre-exisitng notions of what you are looking for and let the junk talk to you.
Junking Is A Zen Like Experience
Going junking is really a Zen like experience. To begin your journey into the JUNK ZONE you have to clear your mind and become totally focused on the experience in of itself.
DON'T THINK When Junking
When entering a junk shop, I follow the advice of one of my most gifted art teachers who helped me to work in a more relaxed way. Her mantra was DON'T THINK TOO MUCH ! You have to let it happen.....go with the flow !
When you go out junking with a clear head...you will be surprised how many great things you can come home with. Your ingenuity is re-charged and you will indeed discover new uses for lots of old things!
