Cosmic 2 x 4

June 10, 2014


I received a call from someone who said she was at the end of her rope, and then proceeded to list all the wounds that had and were appearing in her life. They were the usual: unemployment, loss of possessions and illness.

Robert Schuller
The first words out of my mouth were: “Remember what Robert Schuller, the founding pastor of the Crystal Cathedral, said, “At the end of your rope? Grab another rope!”

She laughed and said she would remember that.

Cosmic Two by Four
I went on to explain that she was being hit by the cosmic two by four. The Cosmic two by four concept is explained by Rita Louise in her book Avoiding the Cosmic 2 x 4.  

The cosmic two by four attacks when we haven’t heard or refuse to take action on directives sent by the Universe (God).

Silence and Listening
We need to be silent and in stillness for at least some part of each day so that we can hear what is being said to us on the inside where God dwells. We need to listen for this voice.

One can always ask that this inside voice be stronger, clearer and easier to understand. In fact, a good affirmation to repeat several times a day is, “I hear my strong, clear, understandable inner voice. I easily know what it is saying to me.”

Ask the Angels
We can, also, ask the angels for help.

Angels of all of us,

We realize that God, you, and others in the spiritual realm communicate with us. We don’t always hear these messages. Sometimes, when we hear, we don’t understand, and, sometimes, we hear and understand but are afraid to obey.

We ask that we only hear the messages from God, you angels, the ascended masters and teachers and those who have are best interest in mind. We ask that we only hear and be in the presence of those who truly want the very best for us.

Help us let all others go past us without troubling us or invading our space.

We ask that our inner voice be made strong, clear, powerful and understandable. We ask that this voice speak in our primary language so that there is no guessing but instant knowing.

We ask that when we receive these messages that we, also, receive the peace that comes from being with those who desire the best for us and that we receive the peace that comes from knowing that all is well and will continue to be so.

Angels of all of us,

We are grateful for your help and guidance. We give thanks that we know God dwells within and is with us in all times and in all places. We give thanks that we have a strong, powerful inner voice that guides us in all that we do and gives us needed information constantly.

We give thanks that we can hear this voice and have instant recognition that what we hear is from those in the spiritual realm who want the very best for us.

And so it is.
