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.

"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.

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.

      Gloria Velazquez, thank you for sharing your experience. Of course, when you are not expecting it, an orb sighting can be startling or unnerving, but it is not usually anything to be frightened of. Peace be with you and your family. Kind regards, ~D

      Tammy Hannell, thank you for sharing your experiences. Children tend to be able to see and sense things more easily, at least until parents and society reprogram them to ignore their abilities and intuitions. Which is very unfortunate. I can empathize. Precognitive dreams that reveal negative events can be very scary and disturbing. Love and Light, ~D

      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

      Hi for the past few weeks a friend and I and another friend have been seeing orbs in our seperate apartments and once a friend saw one around me ...I have seen a red first then in the past 2 weeks I saw 2 white orbs and today I saw either a black or clear orb date 17/08/2017...I did have to get a medium into my apartment a few years ago because it was being haunted and 2 of us in the house have had experiences one violent when my neighbours bed with him in it asleep was sent flying across the room...I have been told by that medium that I am an empath and that I can feel people feelings and emotions she said my Aura is yellow and that I am so calm in my natural state...What id like to ask is what does it mean for the person seeing these orbs... is there some gift we can use to help other people or does some sort of psychic gift develop from seeing these. 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 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

      At exactly 12:30AM I woke up to go and use the washroom. There is a guest room opposite of the bathroom that never has really been used. While entering the washroom I saw a dark mass peeking out from the doorway. I realized what I had seen, but for some reason did not check again to make sure. I did my business and left the bathroom, turning the lights back off. I looked to the spot where I previously saw the mass, and it was still there. I unconsciously changed my gaze to the door way that was infront of me. There, I saw multiple red streaks of light quickly pass by my vision. I walked back to my room, while a tingling sensation ran up and down the back of my heel. I progressively got more anxious and uneasy as I got closer to my room. I reached my room, turned around and flicked on the lights. There was nothing, but I felt something was out there somewhere. I closed the door, sat down on my bed with the lights on and searched if someone had experiences like mine. I ended up here, and I still have a very uneasy feeling running over me as I write this. This has never happened to me before, and I don't know what caused it to happen. Has anyone ever seen multiple 'orbs' all at once with their eyes alone? Thank you for reading.

      Hi DC Ziese, goodmorning and thankyou very much for believing in what I wrote. Hardly anyone believes in these things or even pays attention when you are speaking about anything supernatural. You were absolutely right when you wrote that one's intitial thoughts, emotions, and 'gut feelings,' are keys to dicerning the nature of the orb and its intentions. I too want to thank you very much for believing in what I wrote. Very much appreciated thankyou and good day. God bless. with kind regards, spencer green

      Hello spencergreen. Thank you for your comments and for sharing some insightful information. I, too, am a firm believer in our powers of discernment. Our intuition and perception are vital in understanding our experiences and guiding us through them. When readers ask me what a particular color orb means, my first response is, “How did it make you feel?” One person may feel peace and love, while another person may feel antagonism and malice. One’s initial thoughts, emotions, and ‘gut feelings,’ are keys to discerning the nature of the orb and its intentions. Thanks again for sharing. Kind regards, ~D

      When black orbs appear, some investigators interpret them as a sign the area may be unsafe or negative in nature. Examine such a place with caution, and if you feel uncomfortable or unsafe, leave.More experienced mediums have told that black orbs can refer to evil presence, but I think it can also be a significant indicator how do you feel deep within.Do you feel a evil presence when it appears? Or you feel bad? If so then they are evil if not then they arent. Red orbs can be an indication of a angry spirit check your emotions and feelings at that time are they of anger? In some cases when people see black orbs, either the area around them is evil, or maybe blackmagic or evil was practiced in that area or even the person themselves had been practicing evil. Its not so in all cases. Maybe the person seeing these black orbs are extremely good, but they could be in an area, like I mentioned earlier that is unsafe or where something evil was practiced. If anyone does see black orbs say a prayer of protection quickly.

      I hope this has been of some help. thankyou

      I have had orbs for four years, every night. Have had them as early as 11:00pm an as late as early morning light. At first I didn't know what to think because their was so many of them. The little ones were flying around in my bedroom in formation which was very unsettling. I thought I wish they would go fly somewhere else and they left. After that I realized I could communicate with them. Two of them started flashing me with lights. One was red and one was white. I have awakened to find one on the unused pillow next to me. I could see through him because he was without his usual black color. It is like they work hard trying to impress me with their talents. Sometimes they come bearing flowers, sometimes pictures of flowers. When I wake up in the morning one is either on the ceiling right over my head or on the wall above my headboard. No I'm not a nut case. This is the honest truth.

      I have been seeing orbs regularly for years. I see them about once a day, or every other day. Sometimes multiple times a day. If you have ever watched an old movie and seen a bubble in the film, like a round flash that lasts for a split second, it's exactly like that. Sometimes I see them in my periphery but when i look directly at them they disappear. Generally they are blue. Once when I was meditating a big white one stayed hovering above me and my looking directly or indirectly at it did not diminish its presence at all. I haven't been able to connect them to events or spirits but I'd love to know.

      My very good friend (40 yo woman) saw blue levitating orb in the night. About 10 inch diameter. It was in mountain, small village, old cottage. Owner commited suicide years before, hanged. That night she was going down stairs to WC. There was no window, no street lights, no moon light. The date was Christmas Eve. The orb didnt move. She was frightened and quickly returned back to bed. In the morning, mother in law told, she had seen this “orb” too in different part of this house, but different shape, like cylinder. The color was now blue with pink. Nobody feel good in this house.

      I have seen 3 orbs with my eyes wide open. They were hovering in front of my eyes and they would become big and small. When they were big they would open into a brilliant white light and then become small. This occurred three to four times every few minutes. I believe they were the spirit orbs of my three family members who passed away a few days before and i saw this on the day of their funerals. The next day the same thing occurred but this time it was faded and moving in circular downward directions. while i saw these orbs i was covered with the blanket of one of them who had died

      An orb is a solid or transparent "ball" of energy or light. Some parapsychologists believe that orbs are spirits, or lingering energy from deceased entities. No one truly knows what orbs are. Orbs can appear in many different shapes and colors, with white orbs being the most common.

      Not all "orbs" that appear in photographs are paranormal. In my experience, many of the orbs that appear in photographs can be explained by the flash reflecting off dust, particles, insects, or moisture droplets in the air in front of the camera.

      In my opinion, witnessing orbs with your own eyes (in person) is far more credible, and harder to debunk than mere photos of orbs.

      If you see a bright, glowing orb with your own eyes (in person, not in a photograph), there's a good chance that it may be paranormal. However, I would be very cautious when classifying orbs in photographs as paranormal – it's simply too easy for the "orbs" in a photograph to be caused by dust or moisture, reflecting off the camera lens (or the flash).

      Orb color difference is caused by the energy of the spirit who is represented by the orb. In some ghost-hunting circles, clear orbs are commonly interpreted as a sign that a spirit wants to communicate. It may want to convey that some sort of significant event occurred in that location and that it needs help getting past it.

      Orbs that are a white or silver color signify peaceful, benevolent spirits.

      White or Silver Orbs: Spiritually, white or silver is associated with spirituality and connection with a higher source. Some investigators believe orbs that are either white or silver in appearance are an indication that a spirit is trapped on this plane. It may also be a sign that the spirit is there to offer protection to the people in the area. White energy is typically perceived as highly positive in nature

      Black or brown orbs:

      . Spiritually, many feel that black or brown colors are associated with lower spiritual vibrations or heavy energy. Brown orbs are heavily connected to the earth and associated with strong, grounding spirits . Some people interpret black orbs as evil, although it isn't necessarily the case. When black or brown orbs appear, some investigators interpret them as a sign the area may be unsafe or negative in nature. Examine such a place with caution, and if you feel uncomfortable or unsafe, leave.

      From a spiritual perspective, red and orange colors are associated with safety and security, as well as a sense of belonging. While these warm colors are often associated with strong emotions such as anger and passion, this may not be the case when it comes to ghost orbs. Some paranormal investigators believe that a red or orange orb is a sign that an entity has assumed the role of a protector. This could be someone who was charged in life to keep watch or be a caretaker. Orange orbs are affiliated with belonging, safety and security. Locations with orange orbs are known to be safe, with spirits who take on a protective role.

      Red orbs give off a burning, intense energy, and could be an angry spirit who is trapped and not able to cross over. A red orb near a person could signify unresolved emotions of hurt or pain (like anger). Notice what feeling you get when you look at the red orb because this is what it means to you.

      Green orbs are strongly connected to nature and plants and mark locations as being abundant and healthy. In spiritual practice, green is associated with the heart. It is also associated with nature. Green orbs are sometimes thought to be an indication of the presence of a human spirit, as opposed to one that was never on Earth in human form. Likewise, green orbs may represent love or oneness with nature.

      Blue orbs represent psychic energy and are connected to heaven. Locations with blue orbs are known to be calming, and it is believed that spirits act as a guide in these locations.

      Pink orbs: could mean Loving, open

      Yellow orbs: could mean Hesitant, cautious

      Musiknotes, thank you for sharing your experience. It is believed that orbs are around us all the time, but we don’t always perceive them with the naked eye. (Physical sightings are rare.) And, yes, certain events or energies can attract certain orbs for various reasons, but it sounds like you just happened to catch a glimpse of a traveling orb, just passing through. If your dog, especially, felt no threat, concern, curiosity or connection, then it was possibly just a friendly neighborhood interdimensional traveler. :-) But, that’s just my opinion. Kind regards, ~D

      About six years ago my family had this massive altercation where one of our family members was kicked out of the house. During that time I was in the basement with my dog and I saw an transparent orb push one door open and then another to escape into the hall. It was about the size of a volleyball and completely colorless. I didn't feel anything except creeped out and my dog didn't even react! Is there a reason for this kind of manifestation during times of turmoil?

      I was in Bali June 2014 & a friend I met 20 years previous was there at same time, she has become a spiritual healer & I was excited to see her & learn about her healing stuff. I went to her place in the evening & talked all night about her spiritual work. It was pretty late & I decided to go back to my hotel but she suggested I stay. In morning I got up early had a dip in pool & knocked on her door to tell her I was going surfing, she got up & while chatting she said there were a kaleidoscope of colors surrounding me. I didn;t notice anything being keen to go surfing, I invited her to come to my hotel later for dinner, she agreed & couple days later she came for dinner. We had dinner, I had 2 beers & she stayed over. While in bed talking, she said "Somethings happening, look up, can you see the sky & stars?" I looked up & could see through the ceiling/roof and saw the sky & stars" Then hundreds of apple seed sized orbs surround the bed, every color of the kaleidoscope, swooshing around for about a minute, then slowly disappeared, we were blown away, I looked around & there were a few left above our head & I tried to grab them a couple times but they just passed thru my hand. Then they all came back again, hundreds, swooshing around bed, Angela freaked & jumped out & I reluctantly decided to get out too. As I left the room I was looking back & again they slowly disappeared. We stayed on balcony beside ourselves. After an hour we went back to bed & nothing happened & went to sleep. Next morning we had a big argument about them & by lunchtime she left in a huff. She reckons they were bad. So that night I went out for dinner, met all these people went back to their place & had big night, I walked back to my place in dark & got court out at the reef end of Bingin beach, then about 30 orbs appeared again & showed me a path through the deadly reef, just lined up, step by step apart showing a path. Got to the sandy part of beach & was again blown away but knowing this had changed my life. Talked to a number of Balinese who said they were always around their temples. I'm a firm believer they are around to help along our journey. Since then I have woken up to the real state of the world, New World Order Illuminati crap & the their mission to stop humanity from realizing our natural spiritual selves. Cheers

      My cat brought orbs to my attention. I was in the living room when I heard my cat making a bunch of ruckus in the bedroom. I went to see what was going on. That is when I saw all these multi-colored marble size balls (orbs) dashing around. The colors were yellow, orange, red, blue and green. My cat was meowing at them in distress and swatting at them with her paw. After the balls of lights stopped, a face in a brownish orange light briefly appeared. I had never seen anything like that before. Now, at times, I'll see one or two marble size balls (orbs) pass by. What was with the face appearing? And, I know I wasn't seeing things because my cat was meowing at them, and when she was swatting at them I could see her paw touching them.

      I began to see orbs about 5 years ago after going through an intense spiritual awakening. I see them all the time with my eyes especially when I put my attention towards the sky. Sometimes the orbs will just appear then float down and others will appear and do the same. The orbs generally don't impede my sight. I can cause them to move in all different directions just by putting my focus on them. Wherever I change my attention to they are there and the more I try to look at them the more they stay just outside of my line of sight. When I call upon many Angels I see many Orbs together in Clumps. Almost all the orbs I have seen are small with a little circle in the centre followed by a slightly larger circle on the outer, the lines are thin and the orb is opaque. About 4 years ago I came into the company of a Divinely Enlightened Spiritual Master and for the last two years have become His devotee. Somewhere along the time of coming into His company, seldomly an Orb would appear that looked similar to the other orbs in shape and structure except that the lines of the circles were more bold. The orb is more pronounced. When this Orb would appear there would be numerous of the other orbs clumped around it. I've had experiences where this Orb has appeared and it's as if for the moment time has slowed and I'm in an alternate dimension, my perception is different. I've come to recognize this Orb as The Master. I've tested it to see, I've invoked Him and His clearly recognized Orb appears. As I go about my day I don't call upon Him directly in all matters but for the few times that I have experienced psychic attack He has been there even before I call. In my experience with Orbs I've seen many of the small circular thin ones together in numbers one or greater but I've never seen two Orbs that are of the bolder variety together. There has been only one time that I have seen a bold Orb that I recognized to be other then my Spiritual Master. I came across in a book a description of Commander Ashtar from The Great White Brotherhood. As I was reading my body was filled with boundless energy while at the same time His bold Orb appeared clear as day on the wall of my apartment. I thought back to a previous prayer lying in bed one night wondering who I can call upon by name from The Council of Assistance To Earth regarding the Earths ascension and role of The Lightworkers, Starseeds, Indigos, Crystals and approaching Rainbows. Through circumstances I'm gifted a book and come across Ashtar. He insures peace through planet populations and is here to divert nuclear attack on Earth through the Galactic Federation and as I'm reading this He appears! Answered Prayer! Thank You God!

      Well my fiancé passed away 4weeks ago, needless to say I am devastated. I have felt his presence but was not really sure it was my imagination. Then two weeks ago I was waiting outside for our son to get off the bus and rt next to me and my car I seen two little white spheres one smaller one sitting on top and one a little bit larger on the bottom kinda in the shape of a snow man I guess is the closest description I can give. They were transparent and white colored. I had my other son with me and I said what is that and he said what and I said again what is that then I blinked and tried to increase my focus on the orb and it was just gone, just disappeared. Then my son said he seen a floating orb that was like pinkish in color by the tree in a distance floating and he looked away and it when he looked back it was gone. About 12years ago I had a similar experience. A guy from the neighborhood Igrew up with had passed away, I had a dream I seen him and in my dream I knew he was dead. When I seen him in my dream I gasped and he said hi and I said hi and looked down and then he said I'm dead ain't I? and I said, how did you know and he said I can tell by how people are acting and then it was like we separated like zoomed away from each other. I'm not sure exactly when as it was as it was a long time ago but sometime around the same general time frame one afternoon I walked out onto my porch and I looked up into the sky and the trees and I saw a smooth pink sphere and like an oval base underneath it. I just thought to myself, what is that and I tried to squint my eyes to get a closer look and it was just gone. At the time I thought I saw a ufo but after my recent experience with my fiancé I'm thinking maybe that was also a sign from spirit of that old neighborhood friend. I'm always the skeptic and have no way of knowing if it was real or imagination, but those are the experiences I've had.

      I recently lost my dad and the night of his service I laid in bed unable to sleep. I kept my eyes closed and an orange orb appeared and I felt a calmness come over me and I fell asleep. My eyes were closed the entire time but when I woke up all I could think to describe it was a glowing orange orb.

      It has been many years ago and I never talked about it, mainly because I didn't want people to think I was crazy. I was working late, maybe about 10 pm, when I saw a blue orb come through an outer wall into the building. It was a little larger than a soccer ball, appeared to have small blue flames all over it, floating about six feet off the floor. It traveled in a straight line across the building [about 60 ft] at a slow speed, maybe walking speed, and passed through the opposite wall without leaving any marks. It was completely silent as it crossed the building. Needless to say, it scared the life out of me, I would have left the building quicker but it was between me and the way out. As soon as it went out of the building I jumped in my truck and went home. I have never seen another orb since that one encounter and have only recently shared the experience with anyone. I have always wondered what it was and am happy to see others have had similar experiences.

      Five years agoI was sat in my garden, daylight and a nice sunny day when something caught my eye, (I have never meditated or taken much interest in this sort of thing). As i turned my head I could see a strange round object floating, just out of arms reach. It travelled about 3 feet passing me and flating into my pen back door. I could not believe what I gad seen and after a moment of composure I ran into the house to tell my husband what I had seen. I stiil cannot believe that I was priveledged to see this and have to ask my husband "was I dreaming or did I come runninv from the garden after seeing what I can only describe as an orb"? He assures me it happened. I feel blessed to have seen this. I often used to sit in that same spot after my father died years before. It was 2 to 3 inches across and similar to a bubble but much denser and swirling cloudy inside, colours of the rainbow interspersed. It floated bas light as a festher but looked very strong, ery hard to describe as ive never seen anything so delicate but tough looking at the same time. I am not religious, not into spiritulism,and was just going about my dsily business, why me? Feel like a very lucky person to have seen this.

      After work tonight I went running I love running at night around 10pm out on the edge of our town which is part country and part development with a graveyard on the one side. I have ran this same path several time but tonight as I turned to go down the street that took me down this hill - the graveyard on my right and new houses on my right I saw this huge white ball of white light and it was moving - at first I thought it was ball lighting even though there were no clouds but when it popped up again and yet a third time right in front of me and moved off to my right towards the graveyard it really struck me as odd!.!.! It was such a bright pure white and had a tail I didn't feel scared or anxious when I saw it I felt assured but than again I am empathic so I am more sensitive to energy than most!... I usually put up my wall and block energy because in our everyday life it can be so very overwhelming and I am the kind were I feel a persons energy and I can't tell if it's my emotion or there's I am experiencing - so when I run at night out and away from it all my guard is down and I am just living the moment which would make sense why I saw this white orb and I am almost a liscenesd Clinical Psychologist so I know what I saw wasn't in my head or a trick of the eye believe me after 5 years of college so far I know how my Brain works!...

      In June, 2013 at 2am I saw hundreds of white, perfectly white orbs in the woods/pasture behind my house. I live on a large farm in NC. These orbs varied in size from that of a softball to an orange. They just popped into view and stayed there, some of the smaller ones tumbled to the ground just inside the fence. I watched them from a back window of my house. I had just taken my dog out for a pee and whilst out there I heard a loud bang that came from down at our barn. It sounded like someone had lifted a lid on one of my horse feed barrels and slammed it back down. I got scared and urged my dog back into the house. That's when I went to the window to look outside and see if there was someone lurking about. Suddenly, a I stared into the pasture those beautiful orbs started to appear. I should have awoken others in the household, but I thought they'd think I was crazy or, worst yet, maybe I was the only one who could see them. I kept watching and watching, going to the front and side windows to see if there were more orbs elsewhere, but, no, they were contained in the pasture tree line from tops of trees to the ground. I kept returning to the window and they were still there. I finally went to bed somewhere between four and five am and the orbs were still dancing in the woods. I have prayed for answers and the only thing I can say is that I wasn't afraid of the orbs and they were a beautiful thing to behold. Just about every night I look out the window, but all I ever see now are fireflies leaving those golden uneven lights with trailing tails. I'm wondering if anyone else has experienced seeing orbs like this with the naked eye.

      Hello Stephanie. Thank you so much for sharing your experiences. I know it can be such a relief to learn that you are not alone in witnessing orbs. It seems nowadays orb sightings are much more common, and reports are increasing as well. A few people have mentioned witnessing an orb divide into multiple orbs, as well as the reverse, where several orbs converge into one; and also two to three orbs flying piggy-back or playing tag. It’s fascinating, and surreal. Light & Love, ~D

      Nice to read so many other peoples stories about actually seeing orbs with their own eyes. I have lived in this same house for many years and never seen orbs. Now for some reason in the last 3-4 years I have. I contacted local paranormal societies about this but they only tell me in a round about way it's nothing. But I know as well as all of you who have seen orbs with our own eyes it is very much real. Like some of you I have looked straight at theses things for as long as 10-15 seconds before it disappears. Each time I see an orb it is always different from past ones. Different size and different color. The last one I saw was in my bedroom during the day for about 10 seconds, was bright blue like an LED and about the size of a baseball. I have seen several orbs during daylight hours but mostly see orbs at night. I have seen orbs both inside my house and outside both day and night. The one that really surprised me the most was when I had just reached up to turn off the light above my bed (pull-string) and laid down it was right next to me on my bed. It was about the size of a volleyball and very bright like a car headlight. Even so, the room remained dark like it wasn't even there. As soon as I looked at it, it broke-up into smaller orbs that very quickly disappeared. Has anybody else seen anything like this? Why I am the only one in my family to see orbs I don't know. Nothing bad ever happens when I see them, nor do I get cold or creepy feelings from them. They just randomly appear from time to time. If blue orbs are protecting orbs as I have read many times, then I have to wonder what it was protecting me from. As I have only seen one blue orb, but still bad things happen. I never try to take pictures, but I do have surveillance cameras and often seen things I am not sure of what it is. I know some of it is dust, insects and the likes, but there are often images of something that is much different in appearance and behavior, round like an orb and pulsating. Like in my cameras, what would be moving very quickly through the air outside when it is 20 degrees in the middle of the night and pouring down snow? There was a pair of them, one fallowing the other moving down the driveway and out towards a wooded area. Anyway there is much more I could tell, but I just wanted to add little bit of my own experiences with orbs here. THANKS!

      Hello maalarue. Thank you for commenting. Yes, your wife was very fortunate to be able to capture an image of the orb on camera. I have had paranormal experiences all my life, but I don’t recall visually perceiving orbs until I purchased a 19-year-old house about 6 years ago. Since then, I have witnessed orbs regularly in my home, but they will not allow me to film or photograph them. Whenever I try, they fade-out or zoom away. It’s frustrating, but humorous that my orbs are camera shy. Wishing you a happy new year blessed with peace, love and joy. ~D

      Very nice article. I have had many experiences with the paranormal. I have lived in 3 different homes in the last 5 years. And two of these places produced many many orbs and even so called ghost plasma. The largest orb my wife caught on camera was about the size of a vollyball. I have never seen anything like it before. Maybe it was more of an energy ball. She caught it floating in the corner of her room one night. It was brought to her attention by our cat who was watching it in the top corner of the room. She saw it with the naked eye and was lucky enough to capture it on her phone camera. Thanks again for a great article.

      Hello Kdot. When the mind and body are relaxed, such as during light meditation and daydreaming, Alpha brain waves are activated. It has been discovered that the Alpha state produces increased mental clarity and creativity, and that it allows one to tune-in to different frequencies or energies that would otherwise not be detected or accessed by the normal consciousness associated with Beta brain waves. As an added bonus, the Alpha state also aids with stress reduction and problem solving. It has also been discovered that Alpha brain wave activity is more dominant among young children, teenagers, and highly creative and “sensitive” people. Kdot, it sounds like you frequently and easily activate your Alpha brain waves, and in my opinion, that can be very beneficial to you. You have nothing to fear if you choose to be open to your experiences, and your connection with various frequencies or energies. I just recommend that you learn how to ground yourself, and protect yourself from any negative or non-beneficial frequencies, energies and entities. Love and Light ~D

      When I sneeze

      When I meditate

      When I daydream

      Or when I stare I see energy orbs

      I first noticed it outside the garage when I used to site outside to many to count to many sizes to mention the sizes

      I asked older people and also doctors

      No one can understand what I am saying I see

      I have seen ever color in the pictures

      If I sit very still I can tell if the building or area has them

      Hello hippychik. I have read that some people hear various sounds emanating from orbs, such as musical tones, humming, tinkling, etc. Sound is a form of expression and communication. (Sound can also promote healing.) Some people have the ability to interpret or translate sound into the intended thoughts, emotions, images, colors and sensations. Our native form of communication, or the original basis of communication, is thoughts, emotions, images, sensations and sounds. Young children are still very connected to their essence (Spirit), and are still attuned to non-verbal communication, as they have yet to learn, or are only just learning human verbal communication, and they have yet to be effectively re-programed and socially conditioned to believe that non-verbal communication is not socially acceptable to many adults. They say that music (or sound) is the language of the soul. (-; Best regards, ~D

      It was nighttime and I saw a light out of the corner of my eye. My Husband turned and looked and said "what's that?" It appeared to be flying by. We turned back to look at one another to continue our conversation on our back patio, all of a sudden this thing came flying in between our faces, enough to throw our heads back!! I turned and looked and saw a light green thing fizzle out as it lost altitude and energy heading for the the ground with a butterfly motion. I YELLED, YESSS! I new what I just saw.

      I'm wondering if anyone else has heard the delicate soft tinkling sound of an orb. We recently recorded one in my toddler grandsons room in the middle of the night. He awoke and watched it and it made a beautiful gentle tinkling sound like tiny bells as it moved up and away from him. He waved bye to it then went back to sleep. He was in the room alone at the time it was recorded. The entire recording is 38 minutes long from the time the orb is first seen and tinkles until it left.

      Hello Christine. Congratulations on your first grandchild! How exciting. In my opinion, and personal experience, our intuitive knowing, or gut feeling about a situation or experience is usually correct. It is also wonderful that your angel or guide has been actively making contact over the years. The dream world is a bridge, or common ground, that connects the physical world to the spiritual world. While our ego sleeps, our higher consciousness is free to make connections, receive messages and to learn without prejudices. If your angel or guide has been appearing to you without your conscious invitation, then I’m inclined to think that there is something very important that she is helping you with or trying to tell you. If you haven’t already, and if you are open to it, communicate with her and invite her to be more present in your life. Express that you are open to receiving any messages, lessons, and/or assistance that she is offering—only IF she is of The Light and Love with the highest intentions for good. Best wishes, ~D

      Hello Rachel. Personally, I always try to find a logical, physical explanation for a sighting or experience before labeling it as paranormal. In my opinion, one of the best ways to discover what something is, is to first rule out what it is not. A thorough eye exam will certainly help you to begin the process of elimination. Best regards, ~D

      My daughter is expecting our first grandchild any day. This morning around 4:15 a.m. I awoke and saw a amber or gold color illuminated oval in the corner of our room. I thought I was dreaming so I closed my eyes and looked again and saw it. I turned and looked in another area of my room and it appeared again. I had a very peaceful feeling and felt as though it were angels or something letting me know they were with Sophie as she prepares to come into the world. I certainly hope that my feelings are correct. I cannot wait for her to arrive. I've never seen anything like this before but have had a near death experience and had an angel or spirit guide visit me while I was in the hospital. I've also had a couple of dreams about her over the years.

      Hello, I am a clairvoyant and empath and see orbs on a regular basis , being an empath I know they are there so look up and find them. They are usually round white and resemble what most people would describe a ufo. When I communicate with them telepathically they tend to come nearer and seem to hover just above me. For the moments they communicate I can only describe the feeling as euphoric and all knowing, as though I know everything there is to know. When they dissapear it is with mutual agreement. People may scoff but I know what I know and have experienced.

      Hello Kevin. I believe you are correct. Entities, spirits, beings - whatever you wish to call them - are attracted to children. Infants, toddlers and young children, having been recently re-introduced to the physical realm, are still very closely connected to the spiritual realm that their souls originated from. Therefore, young children are still extremely perceptive, and they emanate an inner light that attracts beings who are not focused in physical reality, sort of like a moth to a flame. In the early years, the minds of young children have yet to be effectively re-programmed by adults to dismiss any sightings or experiences that do not fit neatly within the confines of predetermined physical laws, beliefs, religions, or "acceptable" perceptions. Do not give up hope for your sister. She will eventually (remember) come to her own realization about her origination and connectedness to Divine Source (God). Best wishes, ~D

      Last night I was by myself with my two dogs. They were playing tug together, with a toy, and I picked up my phone to video tape them. I thought my husband would like to see it since he was out of town. I opened the video to view and towards the end of the video I see this large size white flash move across the screen.

      It's been a long time, but I remember seeing paranormal shows on television that discussed orbs. So I think that is what I was looking at. I had to put my favorite dog down on March 22nd of this year. It was a very traumatic experience and I breakdown a lot because I miss her so much. She was a Lab mix and loved to play. I wonder if this could have been her spirit. I would like to think so.

      I also lost my dad to Altzhimers Disease last March and yesterday was his birthday. I also wonder if it could have been him.

      I have never taken a video before with an orb in it. Actually, I rarely take videos. When I showed co-workers the video they jumped back when they saw it come into view. It is obvious something was there in the room with us.

      After viewing this video, I turned on my video camera again and started talking to my dog as if she was in the room with me. When I viewed it back, I saw a smaller amount of light going every which direction. It was just like her personality. When I spoke to her in a sweet voice her body would tremble with excitement and her tail would wag like crazy.

      I miss her so much but I am comforted that she is still with me in spirit.

      hello everyone

      awesome to read your stories and comments

      It is good to know I am not alone.

      My experience is similar to a lot that I read about here

      About two years ago I had a stroke and while in the hospital for 5 days recovering it happened...

      It was probably the 2nd or 3rd night around 4:00 am

      They came to visit...I was awake and I saw them come floating into my room probably 5-6 of them

      they were beautiful.....some a soft white....some a light blue all around 6 inches in diameter I suppose...they floated around me so gracefully....I felt very calmed by their presence...as if they were saying to me "you are going to be ok"

      They one by one in line floated around me and right over my head and back out into the hospital hallway

      I have told only a couple of select friends..they believe me...

      From my experience do not be afraid of them...

      they are here to help

      Peace to you all

      The balls of light seem to be near children often. It happened to me as a child, many years ago. I never told anyone. It really scared me. I hate even to write about it, it's so crazy. I only have been thinking about it lately because my sister refuses to believe in god and i had wanted to say to to her that things are out there that i don't understand so don't be so quick to rule out things. My ball of light turned the whole room red, it glowed so brightly. I guess I'll tell the story. It begins with my headache, I had one all day. It was about 10pm and i was going to sleep. I turned the lights off in my room and went to bed. As soon as my head touched the pillow, the glowing started, the ball was coming out of my left eye or the side of my head. It didn't stay in my room very long, just came out, made a u-turn towards the closed window and appeared to go through the crack in the drapes, and out it went. Then my headache was gone. I got right out of bed and went in the living room. My mom was watching tv with her husband. I said nothing. I don't know why. I never told my mom. I won't tell anyone because nobody will believe me anyway. I want to doubt myself. Was i asleep? no. Was i on drugs? no. Was it a reflection? no. This thing floated around and lit up a dark room. I don't know what it was, but it happened, it was there. My sister had recently been born. I think these things are looking at children.

      Its been 15 months since I wrote in here and seen orbs for first time with our naked eyes. Just wanted to update..I have seen them 4x since then..they are colored transparent on the wall but they come off the wall and fly around in the air white super brute can't see thru them blinking changing sizes n zip around super fast like fairies..they seem to have a personality follow me around house. I believe they are guardian angels who come when you need them or pray for help against negative forces. My house has calmed down a lot I am not scared anymore. My advice towards negative energy is this.. you could consult with a spiritist church, or a spiritualist, or a practitioner of an alternative healing modality—someone familiar with energy cleansing, clearing negative energy. For me it is more effective if you perform the cleansing yourself, because it is your property, your personal space, and it is your will and energy that should dominate.

      Hello Dave. Your experiences are more common than you may realize. Some paranormal investigation groups offer a community forum on their web sites. There are institutions dedicated to metaphysics and paranormal studies, and also several web sites and online forums dedicated to paranormal experiences, all of which can be a wealth of information and support. You are not alone. Peace, love and joy! ~D

      Hello WiccanSage. Thank you for your positive comment. I agree that often the orbs found in photographs and videotapes are too easily debunked. But, witnessing and experiencing orbs with your own eyes is much more difficult to explain and dismiss. Seeing orbs with the naked eye used to be a rare occurrence, but nowadays it seems to be increasingly common. I guess the veil truly is thinning. It is fascinating. (-: Light and love, ~D

      I moved into thus beautiful house two years ago. I always felt like I was being watched and something was always getting my attention out of the corner of my eyes.

      I bought a security system, and hookd some special cameras to this system . Wow this house is loaded with Orbs. They seemed to know we were watching them, they sped up and moved much faster. Now you can actually see them with your bare eyes. I know my little dogs see them cuts they watch all around. At times it kinda Erie where there is so many of them.

      This probably explains all the strange noises.

      Wish I knew some one I could talk with I have awesome videos.

      One night I believe I witnessed an orb because I have no other explanation of what it could have been. Anyway I was sitting on my bed & my youngest daughter & son was in the room with me. My kids were standing at the foot of my bed digging in a storage container. All of a sudden I noticed a red light. It was maybe the size of a dime floating at the foot of my bed. I just looked in disbelief trying to figure out was I really seeing a small ball of red light floating before me. I asked my son did he or his sister have a flash light or something red that would shining. Then I thought but a flashlight wouldn't float. I was thinking all kinds of crazy things of what the light could possibly be. My daughters came up stairs to find out what was going on. At this time the ball of light was next to me. I kept trying to follow it but there were times I lost track of it. One of my daughters said she saw it on me. I felt it but couldn't see it at first. I got scared made my kids get out the room. I looked around by this time the color was now orange & a little bigger. It floated in the air near the wall next to my bed for awhile then disappeared. I was scared at first but for some reason when it turned orange I was no longer scared just curious. I really thought I was going crazy because my other kids didn't see it but one child. Although they were saying they didn't want to see it. The whole experience was weird & hard to explain. This has never happened before. Other strange things have like finding pictures that were hanging on the wall all on the floor in my room. Finding a picture taken out of a frame balled up & thrown on the floor. These events happened after me speaking about a deceased relative. The ball of light happened when a family member had passed away a couple of days prior & her kids were giving me a hard time about calling them. I was very angry & upset from their behavior which happened the night prior. Anytime something strange happens though, it is always in my room. 3/5 of my kids claim they have seen or felt presence of things at some point. Luckily not lately. Thank God!

      I have had experiences with orbs for the last two years. My experiences are getting stronger all the time. To begin with I saw a lot of them around my mother and certain parts of the room and they were white. They would flash in and out and I would only see them for a second. I then began to see them larger and in colour. At this point I could also see auras with colour. I have taken photos of myself and my mother and we have both been surrounded by orbs. One photo I took of myself had 13 orbs of white to bluefish colour in all different sizes all around me. I also had a golden cord coming from my head upwards. The newest experience I had with orbs is that I saw avery bright golden one by my hand with a tail coming of it. I kind of looked like a commet. It was very easy for me to see as it was not opaque at all and I think the tail burned of up to the bright light and then disappeared. I just wanted to share my experiences.

      Interesting hub and a great topic. I tend to be skeptical of most orb photos/videos, because as a former photographer I'm well aware of just how the vast majority are dust/moisture/particles in the air, and how easy it is to recreate them. Digital technology has really seen a rise of orbs in photos even though most are probably not spirits. I've seen things out of corners of my eyes in real life, but never a full-fledged orb that you would call it. That would be fascinating. Great job here.

      My brother and I were close. The whole family is. I don't think that he sent the orb all by himself. Like I said, there were many other beings with him. I do know that same night my younger sister and my other brothers wife both seen orbs in there house, and my mother seen a vision in a mirror of her son with relatives who had passed on when she was a child, she said he was smiling and those relative were hugging him. So I do believe that he made his rounds to see how everyone was doing, and to say he was alright.

      The wings that I said were closest to me, I think that is the one who allowed this. If that make any sense. It was the one passing me the info. I have a keen sense of the supernatural, for some reason I have always been that way, so is my mother and her mother. They were born caulbearers. Thanks for listening.

      Hello Vicki. What a beautiful, incredible experience! Thank you so much for sharing. Please don't doubt your sanity. Although what you witnessed is a rare occurrence, it is very possible. Some orbs can appear to be very large and even serve as portals to another dimension or realm. I would assume that these large orbs, or portals, appear to some people with a particular agenda. There must be some significance or message intended. Were you really closely bonded with your brother in life? If not, he may have attempted to bond closely with you from the other side. If the orb/portal was sent from him, he is a very strong, creative spirit. And he may have passed on some significant inside information. It takes some people (souls) eons to learn what some people learn only after passing on, and few people learn while still in physical form -- what it all boils down to is pure, unconditional love and acceptance for everyone and everything. I would imagine that extraordinary experience helped to heighten your sensitivity and perception, like an awakening or graduation to a higher level. Thank you again for sharing your remarkable experience, Vicki. Wishing you peace, love and joy! ~D

      Hello again, Vegan Vincent. That is very interesting. Honestly, the chakra explanation rang more true to me than a potential medical issue in your case. Thank you for the validation. Yes, it is highly probable that you visually perceived one of your spirit guides in their truest form--pure energy. Thank you for sharing! Love & light ~D

      Hello

      I'm not sure if what I saw was an orb or not. If it was, I saw it close up. This happened to me on May 8, 1997. My brother passed away two days earlier. I've had a clear vision of whatever it was in my mind for the past 17 years. Just recently I tried to paint a picture of it. Usually it never turns out to be quite right, but for past three weeks there was a little voice telling me to paint it. So I did, and cried when I realized that it more closely resembled what I saw.

      If this was an orb, it was magnified 10 times. This orb was about two feet in diameter and was mainly white. I saw what was in this orb.

      I wasn't in shock, I'm not crazy, I don't do drugs, nor do I drink. What I saw was real, as real as you and me.

      That day, I noticed something out of the corner of my left eye. When I turned, there it was. I was frozen, but awake and aware of it's every movement. Not only could I see it, but I could hear it, and it spoke to me without words.

      Now this is what I saw inside this large circular shape. There were lots of clouds and mist as far away as the eye can see. These clouds were white and light grey. What moved in the clouds, is what I focused on. They were wings. White wings similar to a dove or better yet a swan. But these wings were much more beautiful, and much more fuller. There were no bodies to these wings, only wings. Closes to me, near the right side of my face, were two large flapping wings. I could hear their sound. It sounds like a baby in the womb. Underneath and above the flapping wings were two more sets of wings, but these wings were not flapping. They were moving in an abnormal way. Entwining themselves around the other wing. Kind of like two snakes entwining together. This was not the only group of wings, there was a group a little further away on my left and a myriad of others within the clouds. I could even see them in the greatest of distances. I also felt my brother among them. I felt that he was worried about the family and was checking on everybody.

      And this is the part that seems absurd, but the group of wings closest to me was communicating with me. It told me that I had to feel something and to understand. Within a second I was given all the human emotions at one time. Sadness, anger, happiness, etc... It was overwhelming at first, but then it was like it all flowed together and the outcome was pure love. I know this sounds like I'm crazy, but I don't care. I know what I saw and it was real.

      After that, it kind of like jumped with excitement and took off very fast through my living room, vanishing in a fireplace wall. I watched it leave and the back of it was a large ball of light. It changed my life for good. So if this was an orb, I saw what was in it. I would post a picture of my painting, but I'm not sure how to do that.

      Hello

      I received a channelled email reading in March this year, which i asked about information regarding my spirit guides, and i was told that i have a guide named Sylvia who was only with me for a short while, but she was assisting me in opening up my heart chakra. So perhaps i actually saw one of my guides?

      Hello Vegan Vincent. I can only speculate as to what your experience might mean. Sometimes orbs will touch a person (or animal) in a particular area of the body to draw attention to that area as it may be of concern, in need of care or medical attention. Orbs may also enter an area of concern on the body to facilitate healing. Sometimes the area of concern has no medical issue, but rather a personal or spiritual significance. The heart chakra is located in the chest area. Perhaps the orb wants you to focus on your heart chakra, or it was trying to clear or balance the chakra. If you're not already familiar with the 7 major chakras, and the physical, emotional and spiritual aspects that they govern, you might want to research the heart chakra, and then see if your experience makes more sense to you (if there are no medical concerns). Peace, love & joy! ~D

      Hello AmIcrazy. I highly doubt that you are crazy. A truly insane person does not question their sanity. (-: It is good that you requested some medical tests be performed. If possible, I recommend that you have a couple more tests performed. I don't know if a CT scan would reveal any more than the MRI, but it could be worth a try. Also, you might want a thorough exam performed by an ophthalmologist. I'm recommending these additional medical exams because quite often orbs persistently touch a person in a particular area of concern to draw attention to that area. They may enter the body in that area in an attempt to facilitate healing. If you find that there is no medical concern pertaining to your eyes or frontal lobe, then you may want to consider a spiritual significance of the orbs. Perhaps they are trying to help you "see" something you don't want to see yet, or refuse to see. They may be trying to help activate your third eye, to assist with your awakening, and your spiritual development. You mentioned that you believe in spirits, so what if you are meant to see the "unseen?" Just some food for thought. Love & light, ~D

      Hello Joely. Personally, I've never seen anything like what you experienced, nor have I heard anyone recount such an experience. I wouldn't rule out inter-dimensional beings. However, what you described makes me think of elemental spirits, but they are nature spirits and are rarely seen indoors, if ever. But I never say never.

      I've always believed in spirits. About two years ago, I began experiencing what I believe to be spirits. At that time I didn't see them but at night while trying to sleep, I would feel a very cold damp heaviness hovering over my face. I would cover my face and then began to touch me and wake me out of a deep sleep. I started taking pictures around my house and especially my bedroom. I began seeing orbs that would bounce around right before I snapped the picture. I now feel that they've somehow attached to me as they're with me everywhere I go. Two of the orbs are quite beautiful - one being blue and the other, crystal. One is dark and I'n sure if this equates with negativity (however I'm beginning to wonder if they change from light to dark). Anyway, not only do I see them flying around me I feel them, mostly on my forehead and around my eyes. At times I even feel them enter my body. Other times I feel the cold damp air. I was so freaked out by all of this that I went to a psychiatrist, psychologist thinking I'd gone crazy. I also had an MRI of the brain and an EEG which were both normal. I'm not sure who they are or why they're around me and at times it's frightening. I've been reading these entries to see if anyone else feels them. I can handle seeing them but the touching, especially in around my eyes is very bothersome. The touching becomes more intense the more anxious or stressed I am. The only time I don't see or feel them is when I'm busy and not paying attention. Has anyone else experienced this? Do you have any suggestions as to who they might be and why they've attached themselves to me? I've tried numerous times, with prayers and invoking the help of the healing angels to get them to move on but it seems they won't budge. I'm at a loss. Can you shed some light on this or have any information or suggestions you could offer? It would be greatly appreciate and thank you for listening so to speak.

      I saw an orb. One Christmas, a few years back, the whole house had come down with the flu. 3 kids and two adults. In the middle of the night I was constantly changing bedsheets, helping kids throw up or throwing up myself. At one moment of peace, I was lying in bed and saw a tiny pin flash of light. (I had seen this once before when my daughter was very sick and had to go to the hospital). This time it flashed twice then turned into a small round orange orb. It was about the size of my thumbnail. I watched it size above me in my bed onto the ceiling then it turned into a black line and I heard it sizzle out. I've shared this story only to have people say I was imagining it because I was so sick. I know what I saw. After researching orbs on the web, I've noticed that orange is healing. How coincidental that I saw this orange orb when everyone was sick? Not sure what it is but something is out there and watching over us. It's a comforting thought.

      We'll ever since I was 13 every morning I always see black orbs. But when my eyes move to look at them they move too and they never let me look directly at them. I NEVER see them in the afternoon or later. And I have dreams of either nothing, or myslef going into a house and visiting people that I've never seen. And they bite my neck like a vampire would and I don't feel any pain. I'm not sure it's anything but I'm not sure.

      I had a very beautiful experience about 6 months ago but I can't find anything that could resemble it. Maybe you could help me. I was sleeping, suddenly I wake up and on top of pillow next to me (2 ft) I see a bunch of tiny bright lights dancing in geometric patterns (like along 2 parallel lines sometimes crossing from l line to the other, dancing making little circles an around a dome at the top. All of a sudden, they stop (as if they noticed that I was looking at them) and start tumbling down the parallel lines towards the pillow and down the side of my bed, I go "wait, wait!" and lean over and they disappeared into white smoke on top of floor while I watched bending over bed until all the smoke was gone. It was beautiful!!! Do you have any idea what they were, or seen anything like it before? Thank you

      Hello TDee. Thank you for sharing your experiences. I can offer my opinion, but it is merely an assumption. You are the best person to discern what your experiences mean based on your feelings and intuition. As for the 3:00 AM episodes in your child's room, it is possible that something negative or traumatic occurred at that time in that location in the past, and your child is perceiving it, or is sensitive to it (residual energy). I am not sure what to make of the glow-in-the-dark beads shaped like alligators. I'm inclined to think perhaps they could be visitors from another dimension or realm. Beings or life forms in other dimensions (or universes) come in all shapes and sizes. I imagine that we look as strange to them as they do to us. God's creations are unlimited.

      Peace, love and joy!

      Hello bonsaisarah. It is commonly believed that a purple orb is the presence of a Master Teacher/Guide or Ascended Master, and/or indicative of psychic and spiritual development. (See my other article titled "Orb Colors and Their Meanings.") Most importantly is how you feel when you encounter the orb(s). It is your feelings and intuition that will discern who or what the orb is, and its intentions.

      Love and light!

      Hello Richard. Thank you for your post. I believe that our souls are multidimensional, no matter what body we inhabit or what realm we reside in. I also believe that telepathy is the first, fundamental form of communication ever utilized. As humans, we have been reprogrammed to not consciously utilize that most basic form of communication, yet other beings and life forms do. Great orb pics! Thanks for sharing.

      my experience started a few months go with a dream i had and 3 purple orbs flew through me and my friend and made a sort of howling sound and took me outside away from her. next experience a couple months later i take some photos and purple faces and a purple orb with face behind it appear on photos.. then 2 days ago i went for a walk in the forest and saw about 5 metres away a purple orb diamond shaped hovering in front of a tree it was only there a second then it was gone i got quite emotional that day as well and felt more intune with everything.. Does anyone know what this could be and is it an angel or guides that are appearing to me?
