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 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.

      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

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

      Years ago, I was standing outside with my friend in Hollywood florida.

      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.

      Two nights ago I awoke in the middle of the night. I looked over to see if my husband was in bed with me, he was and was sound asleep.

      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

      Hello, Ronald. Thank you for sharing your experiences. It sounds as if you have always had some abilities, and now that you are studying spiritual development and meditating, you are advancing spiritually and your abilities are expanding or multiplying. I believe that you, and the entities you encounter, are better equipped to answer your questions. But I can recommend a very knowledgeable, highly skilled, professional psychic/spiritual coach – Marilyn Alauria. You can get in touch with her through MarilynAlauria.com. Best of luck on your spiritual journey! 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.

      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

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

      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.

      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.

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

      Hello

      My experience is different

      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. It was awesome!!!!!

      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
