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.

What do the colors of orbs mean? Learn more…

“Orb Colors and Their Meanings”

Orbs can appear in many different colors. Find out what the colors mean, and what it conveys about the orbs, or the orb's message to you.

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 facilitated 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.

      Meghan, thank you for sharing your experience. I have never heard of a hair orb, but I have heard of partially materialized entities, such as one arm, one leg, half of a face, etc. It is possible that the alignment of the orb’s photon particles were in strands that resembled hair. For example, orbs in motion appear to have a tail. But, if it actually appeared to be physical hair, then I’m inclined to assume it was the partial materialization of an entity. Either way, it doesn’t sound as if it meant any harm. Peace be with you. ~D

      TMSINSIGHT22, thank you for your comment. My personal experiences of physically seeing and interacting with orbs are what prompted me to research the subject. At the time, a lack of adequate public information and society’s reluctance to share experiences are what inspired me to right this article. Thankfully, those limitations are changing. Welcome to HubPages! I wish you luck with your writing endeavors. Best regards, ~D

      So i was just about to go to sleep, when everytime i turn my vision away from what appeared to be a light... my first thought was... "im seeing things". Until i turned on the flashlight on my phone nothing was there everytime i turned it back off it was still there but was moving ever so slowly in a bouncy shape shifty way. I grew terrified and couldnt sleep without light. The color of this orb is kinda weird it was silver, pale blue. I was not happy to see this it freaked me out although personally im a phychic but i dont personally know much about orbs.

      I saw an orb of brown twirling hair that was slightly lit up in the middle. I was half a sleep and was listening to what I thought was the t.v., and thought I was seeing light from the t.v. too with my eyes closed, except I woke myself up because I remembered I turned the t.v. off. I looked at the t.v. and it was infact off. I then went to close my eyes again, but felt something looking at me above me and saw it. It sat for a second, then slowly moved to the wall behind me and went into the wall, but where my initial was. My husband and I have our initials hanging in the wall above our bed. I was so freaked out I jumped out of bed and turned all the lights on, but nothing was there. The next day my son was home sick and I asked him if he ever saw anything in the home, I've been experiencing a lot of thing lately, and he said yes. He said he has seen hair floating my his door

      I see orbs and other phenomenon regularly without special video or camera equipment. I went through what some would call an "awakening" and I have many other experiences in connection with the ethereal energies. I just started my own hubpage account mind I'm out of practice as a writer and new to the publishing articles but this subject will the highlights of what I will be writing about. Thank you for sharing this.

      I see mini spheres just about constantly. Theyre like see through and almost look like little particles. A lot of times i look at the sky and thats where i can see them during the day because of the contrast in the sky. I've been able to see these everywhere since i was a kid as long as i remember. One theory of mine is its raw energy because these little micro spheres just all over the place. Id actually like to get ahold of you personally to maybe discuss what it could be..ive also been taking steong ormus

      the other night I awoke to bright light in my bedroom, first, I thought there was a car shining its light in my room, but from my bed, it was very dark outside. I looked in the corner of my eye I see rings of light on the ceiling. I got up to use the bathroom, it as dark, but then I saw these bright light, like a small ball of a bright light floating around my room. I was really scared. then it came close to me and I pushed away, at first I thought it was a lightning bug, but there was no way a bug could be that bright. them it moves in my hallway and I got so scared I just closed my eyes and drifted back to sleep. I told my husband in the morning and he said it may have been an orb.

I watched them for 10mns or so,then they started leaving. they all went the same way some higher than others. I don't know what to make of it. I never was scared.

      Judith Douglas, thank you for sharing your experience. While witnessing something otherworldly or paranormal, such as an orb, can be startling and very unnerving, I do not believe you are in danger or have anything to fear. In all probability, the orb was more afraid of you than you were of it. But it may have been seeking you out for assistance. A black orb is typically representative of an underdeveloped earthbound spirit, one who may be feeling grief, remorse, depression, confusion, fear, trapped, etc. Perhaps you, or someone you know, could help ease the spirit orb along on its journey. In my personal experience, I have evicted several black orbs by compassionately saying, “You have nothing to fear. The light IS love. Go into the light.” I hope this helps you AND the orb. Kindest regards, ~D

      I was lying on my son's bed, but woke up to go into my room ,i sat up to put my slippers on. Wheh i was just about to stand up there was a black orb hovering at the top of the door and very slowly floating into the room. At first i thought i was just imagining it. Not the case at all. I was so frightened but i knew I had to get out of the room. By this time the entire orb was in the room and slowly making its way towards me. I held my breath and ducked down and ran down the stairs into the kitchen. This house was built in 1906. Living in fear

      Bev, thank you so much for sharing your incredible experience! I know there is much more to your story that you are not sharing here. Your relative has a personal relationship with, and communicates with a very large, blue orb. That’s fascinating! Undoubtedly, your scientific mind asked many questions of your relative and received many interesting answers. I would love to know the rest of the story. If you wish to share privately, you can contact me directly. Kind regards, ~D

      I'm a retired scientist. I have been carefully trained to make objective observations. I must say, I have kept quiet about an observation of mine until recently. Had I reported this phenomenon in my working days, I am sure I would have been scoffed at and summarily dismissed as a nut case. Here is what I experienced, with my own eyes:

      While at a relatives house, I noted a blue glow emanating from an open closet. My relative saw me looking, and said "you can see it, can't you!?" I was caught, examing the dim light, and could not deny it, it was that obvious. She then beckoned to something in the closet, and told it not to be afraid, and to come out. A blue orb, about volleyball in size floated out, and came to rest between us, suspended in mid air. The sphere was self luminous, in shades of pale blue, and rotated slowly in a perfectly maintained position between us, rotating clockwise. There were variations in luminosity in places on or in the sphere that gave it an appearance much like the moon. To this day, I have not seen another, and have no explanation.

      Hello, Shirley Bodine! I apologize for the delayed response. The comments section here does not really act as a forum. It is usually better to contact writers directly if you have specific questions and desire a direct reply. But, that being said, even if you had contacted me directly, I wouldn’t know how to respond to your question about the mobile phones selectively recording data. That raises more questions for me, as well. Perhaps an experienced paranormal investigator who deals with electronics specifically to gather paranormal data could offer some insight.

      As for your, and your dog’s paranormal experiences, they are more common than you might think. Animals are far more sensitive, intuitive, and aware than humans, therefore they naturally witness and experience much more paranormal activity than humans. But humans are spiritually evolving and becoming more aware, and the veil between the worlds is thinning, as a result orb sightings and paranormal activity are on the rise. So, when you witness or experience something that no one else does, it does not mean that you are wrong, it only means that they are less aware than you. Shirley, I recommend that you join a couple online forums or groups that are specifically geared toward sharing spiritual and paranormal experiences and information, and converse as a community. That’s where you will find other seekers, novices, and professionals who can assist you in the manner you need. Kindest regards, ~D

      I started seeing some really strange thing's 2 day's before my brother in law passed away on the 3rd day which was on birthday. Then suddenly I was VIDEOING and and the orbs were in my video. My niece wanted to see if she could video it on her phone too. Guess what?! It didn't show a thing! Is there anyone who can explain as to why I'm the only one who can video this on my phone and no one else has been able to get it on their phone? Here's another question. Why am I seeing them in other places and not just my house? My service dog is even seeing them/or something. She was the one who alerted me the about a doll doing something really strange!! Then the next day she was folliwing something and looking around at something and she'd get in a deep stare too!

      Thank you kindly to all,

      I saw two white orbs floating around my tree one night a couple of weeks ago . I was eye level with them , my bedroom is on the second floor and they were right outside my window . They were moving around each other .. I said something ( I was shocked ) when I spoke , one flew off quickly and the other one just disappeared as if it turned off . I live on the Big Island about 5 miles from the recent lava outbreak . Other incidents have occurred also . Pretty freaky .

      My mother had died, twelve weeks later my brother died of glioblastoma and then a best friend died of cancer a few months later...I was in shock, despondent, withdrawn...my husband was driving along a major highway as I stared out the passenger window....and then I watched as a seemingly huge colourful orb came floating peacefully downward and then as peacefully floated back up into the sky...I remained silent and as days and days drifted by, I knew in the very depths of my soul that it was a sign from heaven to never lose hope....

      Since moving into our home 5 years ago my dog has from time to time been seen watching something, her eyes follow it around the room, sometimes in the lounge but more often in the master bedroom, there is sometimes a cold spot in the area she is looking at. Two days ago when we went to bed she was watching something but when we turned out the light I could see it too, it was a small dark golden orb but it had long white wings, the orb moved fast but the wings moved up and down slowly and gracefully, the next morning when I made the bed there was a white feather beneath the covers. I was not afraid and neither was the dog so I don"t think it is anything bad but I shut my eyes and said the lords prayer, when I opened my eyes it had gone.

      I have noticed a ball of light for the last couple of evenings, and I had dismissed it as some sort of drone. However, last night it came towards me. As it grew closer, it grew brighter. I feel like it is trying to tell me something, although I cannot explain in words why I feel like that. All I do know is it keeps coming back each night and I am desperate to find out what or who it is. Is there someone specifically that I can speak to that can help?

      I found out about orbs when I was young and saw my first one in some photos I took of my fathers birthday party. The photos show the orb moving across the room back behind us. Since then many years later, I learnt that I can get them to appear in photos when I ask them to.

      One night had a spirit person standing by my bed, I tried to get a photo of that and asked him to go back so I could take his photo but in my photo the spirit didn't show its form but instead too appeared as just an orb.

      These orbs I get on photos can not be dust as I usually do not get them unless I call for them and ask them to be in my photos. They can also appear partly on a photo if they are half sticking out from behind a physical object.

      I've also had the situation where one allowed me to take photo but it didn't allow me to show it in an printed photo or an photo if I put it online. That one was far different to the ones I usually get on camera or see and was much bigger and was very clear on the image on the camera, so I was stunned when it then only would appear on the camera image hovering large above my hibiscus tree.

      Labor day weekend 2018, My Husband & I along with our Nephew & his wife, Decided to go to Kentucky Lake Dam with the pontoon for the weekend. While there, I was standing with My Nephews wife "Cindy" outside the motel talking while she smoked a cigarette.

      I felt an odd presence, as I looked up at the clouds I saw Blue splotches in the sky above

      My head. I took my glasses off & started to clean them. (I only need my glasses for the bifocals, for reading.. ) Still carrying on conversation & with my glasses in my hands I began to look around, Looking left & to the right... When directly in front of me about 100 ft. or so,

      Were the prettiest Aqua Blue orbs floating down from the sky very softly & gently stoping

      About 6 ft. Or so from the ground. One large, about the size of a dinner plate always in front

      As to be leading or guiding four to five smaller orbs about the size of saucers.

      The larger stoped & stayed still, as the smaller ones danced around playfully ,but staying close just behind. My attention was drawn to the larger.... All of sudden, I watched the large blue orb as if you took a blue marker & one line at a time.... Left to right,

      right to left, back & forth untill the color of blue reached the ground...

      I was so awed at what I was seeing.... Now standing right in front of me the large orb

      Took on the shape of a human, It then took about 4 or 5 steps closer as it walked , it's arms

      & Legs (body movement the same as a person walking casually) as it walked closer the smaller orbs still playing & dancing around followed staying close behind the larger. The whole time Cindy was trying hard to make out what I was looking at.

      The Human form being solid blue, no face, clothing.... Just a solid blue form.

      Stoped & turned to it's right , taking several more steps & the smaller orbs following

      Close behind. It stepped between a group of bushes & an abandoned building & was gone.

      I turned toward Cindy & asked her, "did you see that?"

      Cindy said "no, but I wish I could by the look on your face...."

      I have seen many white orbs & untill that day I didn't even know blue orbs existed...

      I may never have the pleasure of seeing such a sight again in my life.

      But it was the most amazing sight & I am fortunate to have witnessed it.

      Was it real? I am a believer.......

      March of 2012, I started dealing with tinnitus in both ears. I was overwhelmed, and my life had become torturous 24/7 and I had reached a point of depression and was to the point of wanting death to come. I was 60 at that time and this had been going on for almost 6 weeks.

      Our bedroom is on the back of the house with room darkener shades and no streets behind our home. I woke up about 2 am as most of us do at that age to use the bathroom. I was sitting on the side of the bed facing the wall when the room lit up in a flash of white light. My first thoughts were, well first the damn tinnitus and now my mind is going. I got up and went to the hall bath so as not to wake my wife. Upon my return I sat again at the side of the bed facing the wall and a dark colored armoire with no lights on. Again a flash of light lit up the room, everything was white for a second but I see the color just trickle down the wall for another second before disappearing. I heard a voice behind me say "Tim, what was that?" My wife was awake and had seen it also. She said she saw a white light the size of a cup just below the ceiling about 10-11 feet away just before it released itself and lit up the room. The next 2 nights, I had recurring dreams of my father who pasted away in 1993 standing in a field saying "son, you're going to be OK, you're going to be OK". Strangely enough from that point I started dealing with the tinnitus so much better and the feelings that I had left me quickly. I still have tinnitus to this day but I felt as if my father had helped me deal with it.

      Nicki, thank you so much for sharing your experiences. My mother was also taken by lung cancer at the age of 56. She did not pass away in my home, but she did “visit” my home frequently for several months after her passing. The loss is something we never quite recover from; we just eventually learn to live with it. But, it is comforting when we experience signs that loved ones are still around us, and we can know that they live on. With empathy and kindest regards, ~D

      I was sleeping one night, and woke up looking straight at a white circular orb that was in the upper corner of my ceiling. I had no lights on, a blanket over my window and it was pitch dark in my room. There was no explanation for this ball of white light. Anyhow it traveled from from the right corner of my ceiling to the left, then back to the right corner before it started descending down my wall, I layed there not moving only watching it with my eyes but when it started defending down my wall, I flew up, turned my lamp on, grabbed my blanket and pillow and slept on my couch. Never again did I sleep in my bedroom, it scared me out of my room. I have since moved and have never seen another orb. However I have seen and heard things that are unexplained, especially after my mother passed away. My mom passed away in my home, she died of lung cancer at the age of 56. After she passed away I heard pans banging, she loved to cook. The first time I heard it, I went to investigate to find no explanation of the noise, I thought maybe a pan had fallen off the counter but nothing had been touched upon inspection. Then I would hear what sounded like somebody lifting my toilet seat and dropping it, I heard that most often. I had also experienced the string you use to lift your blinds would sway back and forth and come to a sudden stop. There was no fan, no AC, no heat, no open windows, no explanation to why that string would move and come to a sudden stop. It was if somebody was holding it, swaying it, and would stop it suddenly. I had a friend that witnessed it, she was actually scared because I had four windows and that was the only one that moved and stopped. She got up and left, it had scared her so bad. I was never scared of the movements or sounds I heard after my mom passed, it was kind of comforting, and I would dream of her often. I still have dreams of her but not as many as I use to. She passed away in 2014 so those experiences happened a little over 4 years ago, the orb I seen was around 2005 or 2006.

      I saw four orbs this morning with the naked eye which prompted me to research more.

      My cat has been staring at walls for the past year in our new home and I've assumed it was sunlight and shadow that she was fascinated with.

      Today I walked into a room that is rarely used and without windows. When I turned on the light to enter the room, I was surprised to see her staring at a wall. When I looked up to where she was looking I saw a very small translucent fuzzy white orb. It moved erratically in an upward diagonal direction of about 12 inches and disappeared.

      A few minutes later, I witnessed three more in a grouping of the the same size and shape but this time very close to me.

      They also were gone after just a few seconds of erratic movement.

      Now I will definitely photograph the wall where my cat is staring to see if anything shows up.

      Okay i am 16 years old, when i had my first vision of an orb, i was 10 or 11 when i was living with my mom at my uncles house. My uncle jason and i had a bonding everlasting relationship, once was my best friend. He opened my mind about spirits and he also messed with them, with black magic in the past then he changed with god, demons still fought over him with addiction. So one night when i was 10 or 11 my uncle was in front of me and my mom, playing a game on the xbox 360 in a chair and all the lights were off it was late in the night, as me and my mom were watching him play me and her were cuddled up and i felt the need to refill her coffee cup with mello yellow which she was drinking so i got up walked to the edge of the kitchen from the living room and i had a feeling like i was being watched the whole time, so i looked around standing at the edge of the kitchen scared and feared, because i knew i felt a spirit. So i looked standing in the same spot, at the laundry room and seen a red little dot that caught my attention, and a second later it changed into a smokey, gray orb that went around the kitchen like the speed of light and flew in my chest, i felt so shocked i didn't move at all and it flew into my uncles bedroom in seconds. i stood in shock on the edge of the kitchen with tear rolling down my face without a expression besides shocked and feared, as i stood there they wondered why i was there so long, and as they were talking to me from behind i started to get out of shock and hyper ventilate and cry hard. they asked me what happen and i told them as i laid on the couch in the living room and i instantly passed out. This is hard too understand because i remember that night clearly but they are both deceased now. my uncle passed away in 2016,January 28th. my mom died in 2017, December 14th. i was eleven or ten so this was in 2011 or 2012. that is the only orb ive ever seen.

      Johnmn718, thank you for sharing your experience. I can assure you that since the veil is thinning and orb sightings are on the rise, many people have witnessed orbs of different colors, as well as multi-colored orbs, and orbs with auras. My personal experiences, and several other people’s experiences that were revealed to me, were the motivation for my research and the composition of this very article. And, if you have time to peruse the comments below, you will find that many people have had similar experiences. While the origin, nature, and purpose of orbs remain a mystery, it can be consoling to know that we are not alone in our experiences. Peace, love, and joy! ~D

      kimelda govender, thank you for sharing your experience. Honestly, the fact that the anomalies tend to move in accordance with your vision, or line-of-sight, does concern me a bit. It may indicate a physical issue. In order to rule out that possibility, if you are able, I recommend that you receive a thorough eye exam from an ophthalmologist. If the eye exam returns negative results (no concerns), a head CT scan may be warranted. And, if both exams fail to reveal any physical cause or concern, then it may be safe to assume that you are witnessing paranormal anomalies, and, by following your line-of-sight, they are commanding your attention. Best regards, ~D

      Kat, thank you so much for sharing your remarkable experience! No, you have not gone off the deep end. It sounds more like you may have a natural ability to relieve stress and promote healing in others. A calm, peaceful energy coupled with love and compassion are the foundation of Reiki sessions, as well as many other alternative healing modalities. The color green is most often associated with healing energy, and green orbs (or masses) are believed to indicate the presence of Archangel Raphael or his agents who frequently assist with healing sessions. And, blue orbs are believed to represent protection, and intuitive or psychic abilities. Being able to see auras is a tremendous added bonus to your healing abilities! If you haven’t already, I highly recommend that you explore an alternative healing modality, such as Reiki, in order to better understand and focus your intuition and healing energy. Love and Light! ~D

      On July 2, 2018 around 3 A.M I physically saw three orbs coming from my Neighbors tree while i was in my back yard. Orb one was approximately 10 inches round with navy blue ring with black in center and the other two where Orange and approximately 8 inches round. I was able to see all three in the given moment. The two Orange Orbs floated down and towards the right of me towards my pool which was about 11 ft way from me. The multi colored orb went straight towards me and disappeared three feet from my face. I felt neutral and lack of emotion towards these objects. Has anybody experienced anything similar or at least experienced seeing a multicolored orb as I described.

      I often see orbs when I am most at peace or have strong loving/caring feelings for another. The orbs are always either green or blue. Sometimes I have seen one of each simultaneously. Two nights ago after a stressful day, my boyfriend was asleep in bed. I had my hands on him and felt so much love for him for all he does for me. I could see his aura grow the stronger my feelings were. A green orb appeared slightly beyond him over his head. I stared at it for a while as this orb seemed larger then ones I had seen before. As I stared I began to see faces as if they were looking through a light green glass at me. It was one face after another, clearly men maybe women but not certain, but definitely different nationalities. I must have seen 30 or more faces. I stared until I couldn't concentrate on it any longer and after I lost focus it disappeared. Now I have been searching for answers and at least this site has given me some hope that I have not totally gone off the deep end. Thank you

      Darren, thank you for sharing your experience. The fact that your purple orb moved away from you once it sensed your fear, I believe, is a sign that it was benevolent. As mentioned in my article “Orb Colors and Their Meanings,” the color and size of an orb can be indicative of its intentions and level of development. According to my information and experience, an orb the size of a softball would be a strong, highly evolved entity. And, the color purple would also suggest that it is a highly evolved consciousness with a high (positive) vibration or frequency, with intentions to offer peace of mind or impart knowledge, and/or assist with spiritual/psychic development. If you would like to communicate with other people who have had similar experiences and can possibly provide some insight, I recommend that you join a metaphysical/paranormal online forum. Peace, love, and joy! ~D

      Hello, Mr. William Thomas. Thank you for sharing your incredible experiences. Personally, I’ve only encountered a few people who have ongoing relationships with orbs, or light anomalies, and can communicate with them. Those people believe that their companion orbs are the manifestation of the energy/consciousness of either a loved one, a teacher/guide, or a guardian angel. Personal intuition, discernment, and experience should provide clues as to which witch is which, so to speak. :-) Peace, love, and joy! ~D

      Lorraine, thank you for sharing your experience. It might be difficult for anyone else (other than a psychic) to discern the orbs’ intentions, and whether they were being helpful or a nuisance. Your own intuition can offer clues. What was your impression of the orbs? Did you sense that they were of positive or negative energy? You mentioned you had been praying for help when you experienced the orbs, so it is possible that they were either assisting you, or they had been hindering you and the power of prayer expelled them. Some food for thought. Peace, love, and joy! ~D

      Last night I had an experience. I was laying in my bed and I fell asleep and when I woke up just a few minutes later I saw a purple -ish thing hovering over my bed. It seemed to be made of energy and emitted light, it also had what looked like tentacles or something like that,these were light/energy also. It went up and down like it was on a string, so I thought maybe it was a spider but it was as big as like a baseball, maybe a little bigger. When I started to get scared it moved away over in the corner of the ceiling and eventually vanished. Anyone have something similar to this, I would love to talk to someone about this. smithd_2@hotmail.com

      Hi there to you all. I have tried my hardest to try find some one genuinely honest about the storys. That's as it sounds to me. This Is very real as for me to say today in text . Never looked up the meaning of it or what it was. Still don't know for sure but. Me as a person have not put my real name cuz people I have in life would not understand. If you know my meaning. In the last year since September my life changed when thought I was loosing my marbles... No jokes.. cuz started as fuzzy streaks.some kind but not lights as such. Driving me mad but there always was this little ball of light trying get my intention. Cut story short I know it's there at all time on command I say where are you I can see floating in air size as 50 pence peace I'm from England.. and it's always with me and I have other things everyday I have to look inbetween the air to see. If you know how to do this. Things are coming in and out like people in genral. Like in shops but this orb like thing only small 50p size is always there.. there's occasionally where more orb sizes come through never the same but the one thing is I have got to know whos who strange.. my orb can communicate with me. By up.down means yes side to side no. No joke!

      In Scottsdale, Az. I saw out the window , right by the window , a whitish colored ball of light. It was at dusk . The window was above the sink where I was doing dishes. It was just hovering there like right in front of me. I turned around to tell my Dad to look and turned back around with my finger pointing to it. It moved very fast across the yard towards the ground at an angle like it was thrown by a pitcher. It stopped just before the ground at the privacy fence and went up and over missing the top of it by just a hair. Up and over so fast. I know it wasn't a bug. It happened in 1985. I was 13 then. Never understood what it was but I know lightening bugs aren't that big. Besides in Az. There's not supposed to be lightening bugs. Anybody have information on what it was ?

      I lost my beloved son in an accident in April 2016, have received many signs.

      One night I actually saw orbs. I was walking our dogs when I saw a large circular white light in an upstairs window. It flashed in another window than back to the first in a perfectly timed rhythm. First I was scared and thought someone was in the house with a flashlight but realized it would have to be two people and that the light was much whiter and almost moon-like. I did go check the rooms when I got back in the house.No one here.

      I am sure it was a hello from my son.

      Hello Rick Jones. That is an interesting experience. Thank you for sharing. It is often difficult to know the origin and intention of orbs, but the thoughts and feelings we experience when encountering orbs can provide clues. So, you may be the best person to determine the intentions of the orb and the meaning of your experience based upon your thoughts, emotions, intuition, and power of discernment. As well as any impressions, dreams, or events that occurred after your encounter with the orb. However, I would like to add that, as mentioned in my article “Orb Colors and Their Meanings,” green orbs are believed to be the energy essence of an evolved being who may be offering healing or psychic development. I am curious to know what reaction or response your dog had to the orb. Animals are highly sensitive to energies, and will often indicate through their behavior whether an entity is malevolent or benign. Love and Light, ~D

      we were both talking, when all of a sudden we looked up and saw something about 10-20 feet above from us in the air. It was an orange yellowing orb with an intense glowing light. we watched as it just floated away from us. till this day I have no idea what we saw. but we both saw it!

      Was the summer of 2017 at approx 1.30 am I was laying in bed looking out the glass door of my 1st floor bedroom at the stars through the forest I live in and was nodding off when a BIG round bright white object floated past through the forest, I could see it so clearly, I didn't need to put my glasses onto make a clear view, it was clear and crisp.

      I quickly jumped up out of bed and went to the open door and just stared in aw, it was amazing, mus have been about 1.5 meters wide and it was only about 50 meters from me.

      Well next morning I told my wife about it and she said she got up in the middle of the night and saw a bright light out the same window.

      Ok now it's Summer 2018, last night I was woken by a very bright white light shining on me through the Celestery windows up high, I thought how strange the full moon has never been so bright as to wake me up, so I pulled the sheet over my head and went to sleep, I woke up some time later and all was black, no moon light outside.

      This morning I checked the Moon phase and we are in a waning crescent Moon, I wonder what this returning light is.

      Ohh I'm in Australia on the east coast in a forest of 400 acres near Brisbane.

      As I looked at him I saw a small grape size orb not far from his mouth . Hovering above his mouth.

      I looked around the room to see if light was coming in from a window but it wasn't. I laid my head back down shut my eyes and thought there must be an explanation, but had to look again and it was gone.

      About 8 years ago I was with my friend and her older brother driving around at 3-4am. there was a cemetery near by where somebody he knew was buried. It wasn’t far away and we got out and looked around for a few minutes, nothing happened. Then we got back in the car and right as we were about to drive away we all noticed the cemetery, which was pretty small, fill up with what looked like about 100 different balls of light (orbs?) flying around, they had tails trailing behind them translucently but in color. I still remember it vividly. There were three different color variations, red white and blue. They also varied in size. It was the strangest thing I’ve ever seen. No one thought to take a picture I guess we were all a bit shocked.

      Real Messenger: Holy cow! That sounds like a sci-fi nightmare! While all orbs are entities from another dimension, certainly not all orbs are life-suckers, or soul-suckers. There's been too many positive experiences documented to assume the orbs are only from lower dimensions or realms. Nonetheless, we must remain alert, and always rely on our intuition and power of discernment.

      From my experience; these Orbs are beings from another dimension.

      They come from a demension that opens up to 2 eclipses amd its a hive mind from some Grand Orb of Light.

      This Grand Orb poses as Yahweh and uses humans for energy. Its trying to collect something eternal from humans which i have no idea what it is.

      But from what i know, Humans under its dominion; after death have thier consciousness destroyed and the empty spiritual shell becomes assimilated into the Grand Orbs Hive Mind control.

      Hello, Arnold Gutierez. I think the advantages and benefits depend on the orbs or entities, and their intentions, as well as what you need in that moment, such as healing, comforting, guidance, protection, etc. In order to better understand the nature of orbs and the benefits of their presence, I recommend that you continue your research and expand your knowledge on the subject. In this article, I recommend a couple fantastic books, and the links to those books will also lead to similar books. You may be able to find some inexpensive books at online auction websites, online book dealers (ThriftBooks.com, Alibris.com, etc.), or your local used book stores. If your current financial situation prevents you from purchasing books, CDs, or DVDs, you might find some resources at your local library, or a book exchange program. And, of course, the Internet is chock full of free information. Best wishes and kind regards, ~D

      My husband, myself and my friend have all seen white moving orbs on our property. First my husband-he thought it was someone walking through the woods with a flashlight until it shot straight up. He has seen them twice. I was walking down our long private drive and saw 2 lights coming over the top of a large tree. I thought is was a low flying plane at first, then they flew in different directions. I followed one that was headed back towards my home. It slowed and bounced along through the trees flashing every now and then. When I got near the house I ran to get my husband and of course it was gone. Next-My friend and I were sitting by a fire and saw one zoom across the top of my house which was behind me. I never told her about them because she is a scardy cat and i knew she would never come over. She was not scared though. Its been a year since the last sighting.

But they where there for years. As well aa an intuition id dream of certain occurances and they would come true. Good and bad. Of accidents, rape ect. Used to scare me alot

      Hello, LauraSecordRoy. Thank you so much for your comments, and for sharing your experience. If I have learned anything about orbs, it is that they do not discriminate. As you have learned, being an atheist does not exclude you from experiencing the phenomenon. :-) All types of people with varying belief systems from all over the world have witnessed orbs. In the time since this article was first written, orb sightings and reports have drastically increased, almost to the point where it is now considered a common occurrence. And yet, we are no closer than we were before to understanding the origin and nature of orbs. Perhaps, we are not meant to. Perhaps, we are not ready to—yet. The very presence of orbs forces us to question everything we think we know about our physical reality and our universe. How can we gauge, quantify, and justify something that randomly appears from beyond our known physical reality? We would have to not only be able to think outside the toy box, but to think way beyond the playroom. In my opinion, the way humankind is currently regressing instead of progressing, an understanding of orbs will take many decades, if not centuries. Kindest regards and best wishes, ~D

      I have been Googling "blue orb" for the pst half hour since putting my niece and nephew to bed....I saw your article and the words that you wrote, DC, "Our physical reality, and our perception of it, is in the process of being drastically altered."

      This is the first reasonable, astute thing I have seen written regarding the presence of orbs, and it rang so powerfully true to me.

      I am an atheist. I need proof to believe. (Proof as in the scientific sense of "proof". Even then, the proof is debated openly, and challenged etc.) So what I saw with my own eyes tonight does not make sense to me. But I know what I saw. I'm having a lot of trouble with this.

      I had been talking to my 11 year old neice at the table, face to face. We were not on computers or phones, but having a conversation. It is October, she said wanted to show me her Halloween costume. She was very excited about it, she ran upstairs to her room to put it on.

      She came downstairs again, very happy and excited. It was a cute "one piece", fuzzy, unicorn costume. I said I wanted to take a photo, and got up to find my phone. I found it, and she posed in their living room by herself. She was talking animately about the costume details.

      I had my phone in my right hand. It wasn't on yet. As I started to raise the phone (it still wasn't on), I saw a transparent, very bright, bluish-green light down in front of me, near my right hip. It was still for two seconds, then started moving at a steady pace upwards between my niece and I, towards her.

      At this point, I said out loud quietly, "What the fuck?!" (in front of my niece, who didn't hear me!) and clicked my camera on and raised my phone to my face. The light was moving steadily towards my niece, away from my hip, to over HER right shoulder. I snapped a picture.

      Over her right shoulder, about a hands-width from the top pf her shoulder, it disappeared. In the past, when I have read the words in a piece of fiction, "...and it disappeared.", I have often wondered what that meant. Now, I know.

      I have a photo of it. The picture turned out. The light is blurred, but clearly visible, and transparent, in the photo. It is not as bright, or as visibly blue-green, but it is clear there. There is no explanation for it. There are no mirrors in the room. The only light was a bright hallway light on behind my back, facing my niece, and providing lots of light for her photo. My camera flash did not go off. Anyways, I know what I saw. I am not taking drugs, I have never had a stint in a mental health facility. I have never had any supernatural experience of any kind. I am 44 years old, and I am an atheist.

      Sean, it is difficult to speculate why an individual may be able to perceive orbs, or why orbs might make themselves known to an individual, because there can be so many variables involved, the least of which is the origin and intention of the orbs. We know that the veil between worlds is thinning, and in general, orb sightings are on the rise. As a result, we are awakening and becoming more enlightened. Yes, there are times when orbs help facilitate healing, or activate chakras and/or psychic abilities. As an empath, you are sensitive to energies, which is not limited to emotions. An empath has an innate ability to intuitively feel and perceive others, which is not limited to this physical reality or dimension. If you are visually perceiving orbs, then you might also be clairvoyant. Therefore, you already possess gifts. You just need to acknowledge or accept them and exercise them. Whether or not you use your gifts to help other people is entirely up to you. Best wishes and kind regards, ~D

I know the world is going through changes magnetically and the sun is transforming can you answer this queston and why 3 friends have seen them one of us only had them in a photo and I have seen them in the past 2-3 weeks and the red one a few years ago...thank you Sean

      Hello, Christopher. Thank you for sharing your experience. Orb sightings in haunted locations are a very common occurrence. Other people may have witnessed the orb that you saw, and yet other people may have witnessed orbs that you did not. It’s all very exciting, and it makes us question the very nature of our reality. You are not alone in anticipating and awaiting science and technology catching up to the spiritual/multi-dimensional realms, and the nature of reality. Quantum physics is just beginning to formulate an acknowledgement and understanding. But, considering that orbs are believed to be conscious, sentient beings, we would need their cooperation and participation in being evaluated and studied. Yet, with the rise in orb sightings and experiences, it would appear that they wish for us to become more enlightened, and therefore are soon to become willing participants or subjects. That’s an exciting thought! Kind regards, ~D

      Hmm, yeah I saw one on a haunted tour of the Sandusky Ohio courthouse today. Was really fast and only saw it for that bit second. Not sure if anyone else saw it. Half wonder if my eyes played a trick on me. Weird regardless. I hope tech/science can explain these things some day. Would be very interested to know what is up.

      Hello edd. Thank you for sharing your experience. Yes, I have heard of orbs entering people. Sometimes, while traveling from point A to point B, an orb will pass right through someone, but the resulting sensations or side effects are usually brief. And, as mentioned in the article above, orbs may touch or enter an area of concern on the body to facilitate healing, or a part of the body that correlates with a chakra in order to clear or activate the chakra. Edd, without knowing the origin or essence of the orb and its intentions, it is difficult to speculate why the orb entered your head, and why you continue to experience physical sensations. You are the best judge as to the intentions of the orb. How did you feel when you saw the orb and when it entered your body? Was it a neutral, positive, or negative experience? And, what do you feel about the experience now? Other than the lasting physical sensations, have there been any notable changes in yourself or your life since the experience? Answers to these questions may provide clues as to the essence and intentions of the orb. Best regards, ~D

      I have a problem, you see it is this type of transparent orb that i clearly saw and felt enter my head, and ever since i get this sensation like pins and needles but also like wireless webs stuck to my head. I know i should have it scanned, but my economy will have to improve to pay for the scan... i was wondering if anyone has heard of something like this.

      I think I have seen a yellow orb for a really brief second or so. But it sort of went upwards and towards the left a bit and then it faded away. It was most definitely not a light since I was about to go to sleep. It was dark in the house and the windows had curtains. This was just the day before yesterday and it's crazy. If it was an orb, it was really pretty.

      My fiance went for a moonlight horseback ride last week with two of her coworkers. On their way back, around 2:00 am, they were passing a densely wooded lot (about 8 feet away) when a blue raquetball sized orb came out of the woods towards my fiance's head. She ducked, all 3-horses spun, and all 3 riders saw it return to the woods as quickly as it appeared. Although I was not there, I have been somewhat obsessed with coming up with some sort of explanation. This post shall serve as an end to my efforts as I now realize there is not one.

      Hello MurphyWillis. Thank you for sharing your experience. To answer your question - yes. You are not alone. Nowadays, visual (eyes only) orb sightings are much more common, and reports of personal experiences are increasing as well. It is extremely difficult to debunk or dismiss visual and physical experiences, and with the number of incidents escalating, more people are openly discussing their experiences. There is a myriad of information available pertaining to the phenomenon, and online communities and forums dedicated to paranormal experiences, all of which can be a wealth of information and support. Kind regards, ~D

      One thing I forgot to mention,my grandmothers ashes are in the guest room, so that may explain the red orbs.
