Symbols - What does heaven look like

Catherine wheel

A symbol of the spiritual path in which we symbolically spiral round the soul cone in ascension getting nearer the 'centre'. It has the added advantage of incorporating the symbolism of Fire.

It also also symbolises the evolutionary nature of creation and destruction in generic terms, as well as the cycle that took place on creation.

The Catherine wheel is a type of firework consisting of a powder-filled spiral tube, or an angled rocket mounted with a pin through its centre. When ignited, it rotates quickly, producing a display of sparks and coloured flame.
