Symbols - What does heaven look like

Wall

A wall is a barrier and thus takes on the symbolism of barriers and boundaries.

How it is interpreted depends on where it is and where you are in relation to it.  Its height is also key.

A wall can be an enclosing thing – a protective barrier and thus a defensive structure. 

Castle walls

It may be part symbolically of our castle – in effect it represents symbolically the defensive structure we have built up mentally to protect us or it could simply mean the skin!  If we are inside, depending on its height and solidity it could provide us with protection and safety and solidity.  But symbolically it could also be acting as a sort of prison.  If it has few entrances and exits, or is too high to see over, then it is all defence and obstruction and prevents any sort of interaction with the outside world.  So not very constructive – the walls must come down!

A broken wall is a symbol of your defences having been broken and a position of vulnerability.  The worst position to be in is having had the walls broken, in your position of weakness, you are ‘assailed’ metaphorically speaking and then left wounded.  This is not the time to rebuild using huge defensive structures cutting yourself off, but of course that is what often happens and that is what we often ‘see’ in dreams and visions.

If you are outside the walls of a castle then this may be a symbol of exclusion, a symbol that whoever is the castle has cut you out of their life.

A low simple boundary wall  - solid but open  - gives you both access to the outside world, but acts as a safety zone, a protective layer.

Abyss wall

Spiritually there is another type of wall unrelated to each individual castle.  There is the wall created by the abyss.  If I draw a hugely simplistic diagram showing the vibrational levels and a cross section of the ‘Egg’, we can see that  our little soul cones are hills whilst the central aether level is a mountain.

In terms of symbolic appearances therefore the mountain side would appear to be almost a sheer wall as it climbed up to the heights

Cones as wall 

If we look at a map of the Egg in a simplified way,  the universe actually looks vibrationally like a great mouth with a vast vast number of little teeth [the cones] all round the rim connected to the central aether layer with its Intelligences.

Another way of looking at this is that there is a central portion, which must be defended at all costs, surrounded by battlements – the wall.  We as little cones of energy are the battlements, the defensive Spirit, there as a vanguard against the chaos that is outside the wall

Symbolically we are merely bricks in the wall of this central palace.

Another brick in the wall……. Now where have I heard this before
