天啓

てんけい [tenkei] – A divine revelation.

Not simply messages from God (which are actually pretty uncommon, I hear), this word’s extended usage makes it also useful for expressing those “Eureka!” moments when some great idea occurs to you.

Note: usually used in conjunction with the verb 得る [eru] (to obtain)

天啓を得る
to have a revelation
