Seeing Orbs with the Naked Eye
What Are Orbs? Why Are They Here?
Orbs, also known as orbs of light, energy orbs, spirit orbs or ghost orbs, are generally seen as small, floating, self-illuminating, translucent spheres of various colors. Occasionally, orbs can appear quite large (several feet/centimeters in diameter), and can vary in geometric shape, such as to be diamond, triangular or square.
Nowadays, the term “orb” is loosely used more so to refer to the phenomena itself rather than to describe the shape of the anomaly. While most orbs appear to be circular or spherical, they can and do change shape and size, especially orbs in motion.
White or colored orbs are commonly purported to be visible in photographs or videos, but are rarely detected by the naked human eye. Or rather, physical sightings are rarely reported—perhaps for fear of social condemnation.
Orbs of light, or ghost orbs, are a source of much controversy and speculation within the investigative fields of the paranormal and metaphysics. In images, it is often determined that most alleged orbs are merely dust particles, insects, lens spots, or other ordinary anomalies. However, physical sightings of orbs are not as easily explained or dismissed. In the ever-growing field of paranormal investigation, there are instances where actual spirit orbs have been witnessed and recorded, yet no physical or scientific explanation could be attained.

With orb sightings and curiosity on the rise, more serious research is now being conducted on the phenomena; however, a definitive explanation as to the source and nature of orbs has yet to be agreed upon by experts or novices. Some questions just cannot be answered by scientific instrumentation, such as, “What are orbs? What does the appearance, or presence, of orbs mean? Why are they here? Do the different colors of orbs have meaning?” Of course, theories abound. A few of the most widespread theories, or hypotheses, are discussed below.
Orbs are Spirit Beings
One possible explanation given for colored orbs of light, ghost orbs or spirit orbs, is that they are visible forms of spirit energy. The concentrated energy essence of spirits, or pure consciousness composed of plasma energy, or electrostatic energy. Or, the orbs may be cumulative energy extracted from the environment by spirits in an attempt to materialize. Spirits may be capable of appearing in many different forms, shapes and sizes at various different times, under different circumstances. The orb may be one of many methods that spirits utilize for expedient travel and/or for making their presence known.
Orbs are Beings of Light
Another theory that has been gaining popularity is that colored orbs of light, or energy orbs, are the concentrated energy essence, or a point of consciousness, of “beings of light” from other dimensions. Some people believe that the beings of light are angels or spirit guides. Others believe the light beings to be neighbors from a parallel dimension, or extraterrestrial, inter-planetary travelers. Regardless of their origin, the general consensus of this theory is that these multi-dimensional beings are benevolent messengers of love and hope. They assist us in raising our consciousness and our vibratory level. One thing is for certain: Their very presence challenges and expands our perception and understanding of the nature of our reality.
Orbs Can Communicate
Some seers of energy orbs, or ghost orbs, proclaim to be able to communicate with the orbs or entities telepathically, where thoughts, images, emotions and intentions are directly transmitted from one consciousness to the other. Some say they can summon orbs of light at will. Telepathy seems to be the most common form of communication whether it is with spirits, angels, or extraterrestrials. Some energy orbs, or spirit orbs, have been known to provide comfort, counsel or guidance. While some orbs have reportedly touched, or hovered near, areas on the bodies of people or animals that may be of concern or require medical attention, and orbs have even instrumented healing. If telepathic communication with orbs is indeed possible, it would be the most efficient and reliable method of obtaining information, and answering the mind-bending questions pertaining to the source and the nature of orbs.
Orbs are Portals
Quite often, some of the larger orbs that are sighted are said to contain multiple layers, inner rings, swirls or central holes. There are reports of faces or various objects being visible within some large orbs. While some exceptionally large orbs are said to display full-body beings or other-dimensional locations. A few reports have stated that entities or objects have emerged from orbs. If orbs can serve as portals, it would radically redefine our methods of transportation and delivery, as well as open a whole new realm of inter-dimensional and inter-galactic travel.
The Nature of Reality is Changing
Often, things appear or occur in our reality that we cannot understand or explain, yet we cannot deny them either. Perhaps, all of the above theories, or hypotheses, can be applied to the nature of colored orbs of light (energy orbs, spirit orbs) depending upon their place of origin and intention. All theories and speculations aside, there is one thing that remains evident: Our physical reality, and our perception of it, is in the process of being drastically altered.
