''The occult'' is quite a broad spectrum.
What I know of rainbows is several myths:
In Chinese wisdom
, the rainbow is a bridge illustrated by a double-headed dragon. This sky dragon
is the mediator between heaven and earth. With two heads, the rainbow dragon is able to intercede on behalf of the people, by relaying their thoughts and prayers from the earth-bound head and sending them to the head pointed heavenwards. The rainbow is also a symbol of yin and yang
in Chinese legend. In this sense, the Chinese recognize five colors
in the rainbow, and harmonized, they represent perfect balance.
Symbolic meaning of rainbows as a celestial bridge is in old Norse traditions too. This bridge was referred to as the Bifrost
. This "rainbow bridge" spanned into the world of the gods - it was called the "Tremulous Way" to Asgard. Here we see another connection of the mundane (earthly) element being transported by channel (the rainbow) into a realm of enlightenment (heaven, or realm of the gods).
This idea of a rainbow is quite common - a connection of this world with the next world or the astral.
There's also the idea that if you find the end of a rainbow; you will find a pot of gold there that will last for eternity.
This idea of bridges linked with cultural meaning of rainbows employs another important symbol: That of the arch, and archways in general. Arches are symbolic of gateways, openings, and portals
. When in context of the supernatural occurrence of the rainbow, it's a reference to a portal into heavenly realms (godly, goddess elements
, heightened awareness).
When MK-Ultra victims speak of ''going over the rainbow'' they refer to travel outside the body. It's when they spirit body leaves the physical to enter the realm of the spiritual. This is often induced through trauma-or spiritual training.
The rainbow itself also stands for spiritual perfection - it unites all the colours and therefore the whole spectrum of energy. Therefore it is considered a divine sign of good luck in occult circles.
Hope this gave you some answers
