#神 is made of #しめすへん（礻）and 申. しめすへん looks like the katakana ネ but it is a simplified form of the kanji 示, which depicts the table on which offerings to gods are placed, so ﾈ always indicates some association with gods and/or spirits. 申 is apparently a shape (?) of lightning and ancient people believed lightning with thunders is a god.
