The Power of Wow and Other Amazing Stuff

Rabbi Marc Gellman teaches kids about prayer by saying there are many prayers that are said every day, but there are only four types of prayer: thanks, gimme, oops, and wow. I have observed that my ‘Wow’ moments change my state instantly, my heart feels like a soft explosion is happening, and I am not the same. Words cannot even remotely express what I am experiencing within, my mind literally stops as wonder fills me. Some ‘wows’ are small, and some are big, all of them are unique and personal.
One day out walking in my neighborhood I was feeling lonely and isolated, disconnected from everyone and everything. I rounded a corner and saw a leaf suspended in mid air, as if arrested in its fall to earth. The ‘wow’ hit me right then. It took me a moment to see that the leaf seemingly isolated and alone was being held by one strand of spider web. It was connected above and below. My world expanded in that moment and I felt myself equally connected and held, my inner state expanded, and my feelings of aloneness and sadness dissolved into nothing.
Some ‘wow’ moments are big, some are little. Each day I do my best to look for any kind of wow. Recently a string of mind-blowing wows came to me as I read the book The Holographic Universe by Michael Talbot. This book has been around for several years, but it was new to me. Now I have 2 copies and have recommended it to a score of clients and friends. For those of us who revel in new models of reality this is a landmark addition to the bookshelf. What is reality? Who are we? How connected are we? This book is a wake-up call to wow.
When I work with a client and a change in health happens or a trauma resolves and dissolves there is never a sense of ‘doing’ on my part, and I can never take credit for what happens. The wow kicks in and I am as happy as my client for what they are experiencing. The wonder in me expands as to what can be possible when we work together for health and wholeness.
Just today I was touched by an interview done by of one of our students, a person who is by far the best yoga teacher I have ever met. She speaks freely and openly about her life and work, about the wows, the joy, the wonder of even the most overlooked things, like the space between your toes. Yes, even that is worthy of wonder. I invite you to contemplate your own relationship to the WOW as you listen to Rachael Nickel: (Look for show number 044)
Here’s Rachael in a typical wow moment.

Now go out and find a copy of The Holographic Universe and expand your notion of what is and what could be. Go get your WOW on!
