What's a cosmic 2 x 4 you ask? It's actually a phrase that's been
used in the 'new age/ metaphysical' world for the past 15 years
or more. It refers to the lessons we learned the hard way when we
didn't listen to our intuition.
In the process of our spiritual growth and intuitive development,
we learn to listen more deeply and follow the guidance that comes
from within. Because conscious awareness is building during that
time, whenever we choose not to listen and go against our
intuition, the lessons learned seem twice as powerful and painful
than if we had listened.
When it happens, it feels like a 2x4 hitting you right between
the eyes. It's especially powerful because 'you should have known
better'. These are lessons that are meant to get our attention
either consciously or intuitively. From personal experience I can
say it is infinitely preferable to have it come through the
intuitive realm, then take action upon it. Choosing to ignore, or
bypass your intuitive sense will have repercussions that can lead
to self deprecation and resentment.
Our inner guidance system always has our best interest at heart.
It ALWAYS knows what direction to lead in. It's when we don't
listen that we steer off course. Usually those sort of off-road
detours are very bumpy and filled with potholes. Instead, learn
to use the cosmic 2x4's for conscious construction.
What is conscious construction? It's the process of building your
inner structure in a deliberate and focused fashion. That means
learning your lessons, enhancing your listening skills and
embracing your inherent wisdom.
Each lesson we learn is a 2x4 added to our foundation, the base
of our inner structure. We grow, learn, evolve and build a
sturdier structure as we do so. Cosmic 2x4's are building
materials for our conscious construction project, along with
consciously learned lessons, spiritual growth, etc.
As we build our inner structure we feel stronger, more secure in
who we are and more sure of our place in this world. Knowing who
you are, why you are here and where you are headed is a good
feeling. Remember, cosmic 2x4's are painful and avoidable. Just
remember to listen to your intuition!
