So, in this article we’re going to focus on the spiritual meaning of a yellow umbrella. In addition, though, we’ll also examine the specific omens and representations associated with yellow umbrellas. Finally, we’ll explore what it means to dream of a yellow umbrella.
General Spiritual Meaning of Umbrellas
If you live in England, where it rains a lot, you might not think umbrellas are that special. But, you may be surprised to learn that they are very symbolic objects.
The core of the umbrella’s symbolism comes from its connection with the element of water. That is, the umbrella protects us from falling water, rain. What does that mean spiritually speaking? Well, to understand that we have to understand the element of water. Water stands for strong and deep-rooted emotions. As such, the umbrella stands for protection from a rain of emotions.
Worth noting is that it doesn’t necessarily mean your own emotions. Also, it doesn’t just mean the emotions themselves. Rather, the umbrella stands for protection against the results of emotions. be they yours or somebody else’s. For example, if you’re feeling blue, it’s fair to take the sighting of an umbrella as a sign from your angels that your moon will improve. However, it could be something else. It could be that the umbrella will protect you from mistakes you make out of frustration, depression, or mania.
In addition to being a symbol of protection from emotion, the umbrella also symbolizes protection from authorities and people in positions of authority. This is because the umbrella, literally speaking, protects us from rain from on high. So, therefore, we can take the umbrella to symbolize spiritual protection from threats from above.
What Does the Color Yellow Symbolize?
Yellow is an absolutely dandy color. It’s the color of spring, after all. So, naturally, it symbolizes rebirth, growth, nature, and everything about the springtime that you love. It’s also the color of the sun, so of course it represents warmth and life. Moreover, the color yellow stands for enlightenment, divinity, and creativity.
Unfortunately, though, there is a negative side to the color yellow. Because of the common insult, i.e. calling somebody “yellow” as a way of calling somebody cowardly, the color yellow has sadly come to be linked with being afraid, weak-spirited, and disloyal.
Which meaning you want to take to heart, though, will depend on your perspective. Which of the two meanings resonates more with you?
Spiritual Meaning of a Yellow Umbrella
Deducing the spiritual and symbolic meaning of a yellow umbrella is troublesome. This is because the color yellow has two meanings. Of course, one is the color yellow’s links to many positive things: spring, life, warmth, growth, nature, creativity. But, on the other hand, “yellow” is used as slang for somebody cowardly. However, in terms of spirituality, the first association is more traditional and appropriate.
As such, we will look at the meaning of a yellow umbrella through the lens of positivity. So, an umbrella represents protection, while yellow represents spring, life, and growth. Therefore, we can conclude that a yellow umbrella is an omen or a message relating to the protection of life itself. While, this doesn’t literally mean a sort of life-saving activity. Rather, it means you should focus on protecting the precious life around you. This could be as straightforward as remembering to water your pothos plant from time-to-time. It could also be about the youngsters in your family—remember to care for them, nurture them, and raise them.
Is a Yellow Umbrella a Good Omen or a Bad Omen?
Yes! Without a doubt, a yellow umbrella is a wonderful omen. It is very good, indeed. Because the yellow umbrella stands for the protection of vulnerable but ultimately vibrant and abundant life, then it has to be seen as a positive omen. Often, omens can be mixed—i.e., in some circumstances, an omen might be seen as good, whereas in others, there might be a darker side to the omen. However, with a yellow umbrella, it is definitely a good one!
Yellow Umbrella Dream Meaning
Talking about dream meanings has some pitfalls. This is because we should first understand what kind of meaning we are looking for. Because, there is more than one type of “meaning” to seek out. With dreams, two are commonly considered. Firstly, is psychological meaning, which is not something we’ll look at here on Symbols and Synchronicity. However, the other side of the coin—spiritual dream meaning—is something we are always excited to consider.
When it comes to spiritual meanings in dream, the meaning doesn’t really change all that much simply because the omen appeared in a dream versus real life. After all, the object is the same object whether you see it in the waking world or the dream world.
However, there is one difference to consider. And that is the source of the omen or message. This difference revolves around the belief held by some that dreams are a conduit for our world and worlds or realms beyond ours. Therefore, it could be taken that a dream about a yellow umbrella is a message from somebody. They might be in our physical world and reaching out to you across a dream, or it could even be your ancestors communicating a message.
