Good Vibrations

Whenever one phonates, a reaction in the body of energy is begun, pulsating and ricocheting off of bone, muscle and sinew. One of the best ways to experience this situation is by placing one’s top front teeth on the bottom lip and making the sound “VVVVVVVV”. Immediately one can feel the cheeks, lips, nostrils, chin and neck vibrate. This sensation warms up the body, giving one the feelings of vitality, frivolity and silliness—all rolled into one.


Whenever I feel like I need a pick me up, I’ll phonate the “VVVVVV” sound to one of my favorite Beach Boy tunes, “Good Vibrations.” I especially like the escalating chorus (the lah-lahs before the big AH) toward the middle of the tune. Now, anyone who sees and hears you do this will think you have absolutely lost it. Yet, it’s so worth the pleasure it gives, not only from the good vibrations themselves, but from the peculiar looks on the faces of those who observe. If one day you feel a bit slow but a tad risky, try it.  “VVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVV!!!!!!!!!!”
