Symbols - What does heaven look like

Thunder and lightning

Symbolically the connection between heaven and earth is via thunder as the voice and lightning symbolising the connection itself.  The thunderbolt is then the combination of the two – hence the expression ‘bolt from the blue’ – for example ‘the idea came [inspiration] like a bolt from the blue’.

see Spiritual Input.

Anyone capable of having frequent spiritual experiences thus carries a ‘thunderbolt’ in his hand.  All zig zag or wavy lines in pictures, rock art or cave painting then symbolises spiritual experience.
