Assuming you can get at one end of it, I'd disconnect it, drill a
clearance hole in the rafters, and re-thread the wire, like it should
have been done in the first place. If it isn't long enough, just use a
junction box for the splice, and you are in business. I hope it is
really 12/2 with ground!
go thru the CENTER of the joists not top or bottom, just make holes big
enough for wire not oversized.
you may have to replace wire depending on length of new run

ahh i hope your not planning on a drywall cieling!
Such a bad decision makes the inevitable leaking plumbing, upgrading
wiring general repairs a BIG hassle
use removable cieling tile
