My mojo is not working
Does anyone remember the popularity of the theory of biorhythms?
All the rage in the 80s, this theory claims that one’s life is affected by rhythmic biological cycles. There are believed to be three processes governing human behavior through a predictable period of time. Each “rhythm” has a different cycle as follows: physical/23 day cycle, emotional/28 day cycle (sound familiar, ladies?) and intellectual/33 day cycle.
Through this time period, the rhythm flows up for half of the cycle, then down for the last half. Flowing up is good, flowing down not so much. And as the cycles intersect each other, a co-mingling of biorhythms takes effect. If they are all coming down at the same time --- whoa! – look out. Blame is placed: “Ugh, my biorhythms are down.”
Well, folks, at this moment in time, my biorhythms are in the toilet.
On occasion, actually about every seven years, I go into this energy backlash where weird stuff happens. Mostly it’s mechanical. Time pieces stop. Light fixtures fall out of the wall. Equipment breaks. I also experience very cross people. In general, bad juju. My mojo is out of whack.
The highlights this go ‘round: My DVD player stopped functioning. The air conditioning condenser is making a high pitched whine that could top the list of Dick Cheney’s torture methods. A fuse that controls the clothes dryer blew out. I had a day where Blogger wouldn’t load photos. My ear phones for the health club cardio equipment just vanished. Poof. Gone. A vintage lamp in my office fell over breaking a large globe. Sigh. Enough is enough.
Except there’s still the part about cross people. In the past ten days I have received fines for three traffic violations. Two for speeding, where my breakneck pace was clocked at a whopping 31 and 36 MPH. Then today as I walked back to my parked car, a very large, gruff meter maid was giving me a ticket. My sin? The meter had been expired for three lousy minutes. Honestly, there should be a good faith grace period.
Friends of the Blogosphere send me your light and positive energy. Biorhythm defense mechanisms wanted. If you know any incantations, pass them along. Light a candle. Call on a saint. Chicken bone rituals or magic spells – I will not scoff.
I just want my mojo back.
