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.

      Interesting food for thought. I personally think there are way too many normal things an orb could be, especially in a photo, to assume they are paranormal. When you see them with the naked eye things get much more exciting, I'd imagine. Nice hub.

      True. It is much more difficult to discount something witnessed with the naked eye or personally experienced. Thank you for the comment.

      I am a teacher. I saw an orb in my classroom during the last week of April 2012. It was a bright, sunny day between 1:00 and 1:30 in the afternoon. There was a very young student in the classroom with me. The student was seated at a table taking a test. I was seated at the same table. I noticed the orb when the student bent forward. The orb was behind and slightly to the left of the student. It was a light brown circle of light. It was stippled inside (little dots) the same light brown color. There was movement on the right inside portion of the orb. It was an undulation. A piece of the orb, shaped something like a small finger, was moving. It would move into or behind the orb and disappear then reappear partially and briefly as it came forward. It was like a heartbeat only faster. This circle of brown light appeared to be one dimensional at first. It was about the size of a tennis ball and approximately 7 feet away. It began to move very slowly towards me, but parallel to me. It passed behind the student who never knew it was there. When it was beside me, what I had initially seen as one dimensional, now appeared to have a faint "side" the same light brown color. At this point I could have reached out and touched it. I didn't. I was in shock and somewhat fearful. My mind kept trying to identify what I was witnessing, but the only explanation I could come up with was an orb. After it passed by it went up and over a bookcase that was directly behind me. As it did so, it disappeared. I had never seen anything like this in my life, and I have not seen anthing like it sense. For two weeks I told no one of what I had witnessed. I would not even allow myself to think about it. I feared if I did so I might "open a door" and let something else come through. By the third week when nothing else had materialized I began to feel more comfortable. I told my family about my encounter and then began doing some online research. I found color charts on several websites similar to yours. Brown orbs were labeled as "of the earth". One web site claimed that tragedy would soon follow after witnessing a brown or black orb. At the end of May a teacher at my school had a massive stroke. She was put on life support and her organs harvested. It was a sad, shocking blow to everyone who knew her. After the tragedy I began to intuitively understand what I had witnessed in my classroom. A few years ago another teacher at my school had passed away suddenly. She and the teacher who passed away in May both taught the same grade level and were good friends. I believe the light brown orb I saw was the spirit of the fist teacher who had passed away several years before. I believe the brown coloration of her orb was due to her earthly concerns for her friend. I think she must have known her friend was going to die and may have made more than one "visit" to our school because of this earthly concern. Why did she show herself to me in my classroom? Because she and I had shared that classroom for one school year. A year later she was moved to another grade level. She was not happy. She wanted my job and that classroom back. She resented me terribly. I believe she showed herself to me to let me know she was still around. I now sometimes wonder when I am in my classroom if I'm secretly being watched. Luckily, I am usually too busy to entertain this thought often. This extraordinary experience has continued to stay with me. I am still astounded by what I saw. I am very interested in finding other detailed descriptions of orbs. Particularly the strange undulating "heartbeat" like movement inside the orb I witnessed.

      Hello kk4. Thank you for sharing your remarkable experience! I believe that a majority of the time when we feel an intuitive knowing about something, it is usually correct. I would say that your intuitive feelings about the nature of the brown orb are spot on. The brown coloring of the orb can be indicative of the spirit being earthbound, reluctant to cross over due to unwillingness to accept its physical death, or feeling fearful or trapped, or a strong attachment to a living being. Also, clinging to negative emotions such as anger, resentment, grief, depression, etc., can hold a spirit earthbound. Regardless of whether or not you physically perceive the brown orb in your classroom ever again, I highly recommend that the next time you feel a presence, or feel that you are being watched, verbally or mentally address the presence by telling them it is time to let go and move on, to not be afraid and to go into the loving light. This method worked for me, personally, a few years ago. I had purchased a 19 year-old home, and in the first few months I constantly experienced charcoal grey and black orbs floating and darting around my living room, as well as unexplained noises in a few of the adjacent rooms. One evening, a grey orb came within inches of my left arm as if it were investigating me or wanting to touch me. When I addressed the orb by saying hello, it zipped across the room and disappeared. Shortly after adopting a large dog (German Shepherd/Husky mix), the orb sightings became less frequent, but the unexplained noises continued. I later learned that animals help to balance energies and raise vibrations to a more positive level. But, after I verbally addressed the entities by telling them to move on and go into the light, the orb sightings and the noises ceased. I hope this is helpful to you, even if only to provide a little validation. Best wishes ~ Denise

      I've been seeing orbs while I meditate beautiful orbs with multi colored auras :-) wish I knew what they mean...also I've seen purple fast moving balls of energy right above me when I had an OBE. When I'm out and about I see two blue orb type figures standing to the left of me :-) I think they are my guides

      Whitney, thank you for sharing your experiences with orbs! Sounds like you have an ongoing, personal relationship with some orbs, or entities. How wonderful! Meditation does raise our vibration and our awareness, and often leads to some incredible insights and experiences. Perhaps the next time you see the orbs while meditating, you could mentally inquire about the nature of the orbs, such as who or what they are, and why they are there, and then remain open to receive any information or impressions. It would be exciting to find out something about the orbs. Best wishes ~ Denise

      I'm just wondering something, is there by chance seeing these orbs could mean there's a demon around? Because, I've been seeing them off and on in my hallway and bedroom for a few years now.. And I - unlike everyone else - do not have a good feeling when I do. To me, I feel fear. They scare me. It's not a nothing type of feeling nor am I amazed. They do scare me. I also, I hate the hallway.. I always have since we've moved into this house.. It's just, a dreadful feeling when I have to go down it.. Day or not. I just hate it. That's where I hear everything. Footsteps, noises, running.. As for my room, I've seen them over my bed, t.v, closet.. I've also seen dark shadows in my room.. They weren't normal shadows, they would move from one spot to another quickly. A little while after my grandmother died (from a fall at our hospital), I saw a young 1800s type girl hanging from my closet.. 4:30 a.m. Every night for a week after I woke up at that same time.. She's the second ghost I've ever seen in a physical form. Her feeling was sad. I got depressed every time I said something about her. But, the shadows, I seen when my grandmother was here. I seen them since I was little. The orbs, they didn't start appearing until maybe 2011. But, like I said, I fear them. I don't think that's my grandmother, otherwise I wouldn't fear. We were very close and I have heard her speak to me in 2012 and I wasn't scared then but the orbs are a different story. So, I was just wondering if perhaps they might could somehow be related to a demon? Note: Nothing bad has yet to happen in the 11 years of being here but we've had furniture move a few times, loud knocks in the middle of the night. My dog will randomly stare in empty spots with her ears raised. She'll sometimes bark at nothing and me and my mother both have seen dark shadows. I've been touched a few times. It once felt like something was tugging at my skirt.. And, at night when I use to try to sleep, I felt as if something was moving my hair and touching my neck. Nothing real serious and bad has happened but I do feel it's slowly getting worse. I'm seeing/hearing things more.. And, I feel like something's even coming after me. No one believes me, not my family, boyfriend, anyone. They think I'm crazy and it's making me even more frustrated to know they see me as that. But I know something's messing with me.. I can sense it.. I also have had dreams ever since I've been here that demons are after me... Wanting to kill me. The most remembered one was a long black hand reaching through my bedroom door from the hall.. As if something was about to come into my room and get me. They're terrifying and, I never had those dreams until we came here.. I feel like I'm being watched all the time and I feel like it interfers with my sleep. I've got into BAD sleeping habits. I want to sleep earlier, but something's not letting me. I feel like I'm being drained. I also feel as if it's playing with my emotions.. This didn't happen until my grandmother died.. I was really depressed then.. So, I don't know if that was another spirits shot to target me or just play with me, making me go crazy or what... But things have gotten slightly worse in these past 3 years that she's been gone. I've wanted help on it.. Like I said, no one believes me.. I'm just crazy to them..

      I believe you motleyluve. I have been seeing shadows in my bedroom that move..and last night everyone in the house (4 people) seen orbs flying around my bedroom-with our naked eyes and my son got a video of it on his cell phone. I have been feeling drained and so has my kids. I'm not completely sure how I feel about the orbs. They didn't terrify me like it did when we hear it speak. One day my daughter and I was in the bathroom and we heard some sort of voice. It sounded like someone trying to talk, while gurgling water in their mouth. It said a whole sentence, but I could not catch every word. Directly after we heard toy music playing and there was no toy in the bathroom that played music. Or even had batteries. Later that evening my son was shaving his face and it talked to him as well. Last night we all heard it at the same time. I asked "Is there anything you want us to know?" And it replied with a low raspy "NO" But a loud 'no' at that. Brought tears to my eyes. I'm not sure if the orbs were angels sent to help, or if the spirit that said the low raspy no made the orbs. My house is over 100 years old, I live next to a church, and the cemetery is literally my back yard. The property was ours, but the church buried someone there and I didn't have the heart to make them dig him up(little boy who was hit by a car, mother couldn't pay so the church buried him for free). So I gave them the 3 acres. Now 8 people are buried there, in my backyard. A lot of people won't believe you until they see it for themselves, but it is very true. It does exist. I am a believer and a witness with a good head on my shoulders.

      Hello MotleyLuve. Thank you for sharing your experiences. You are not crazy, but you may be more sensitive to energies than the other people. I do not believe that the presence of orbs, or negative energy, necessarily equates to a demonic presence. Some spirits can become trapped in a negative state-of-being, or can be mischievous or even malicious. To possibly gain some answers, and to regain control/ownership of your property, there are a couple things I would recommend. You could contact a paranormal investigation group in, or near, your area (they do not charge a fee). Sometimes psychic mediums are members of such groups, or the groups may work with a medium on occasion. So, while a scientific investigation could be conducted, a medium could also provide additional insight into the situation. I would also recommend that you perform, or have someone perform, a house cleansing or clearing ritual (energy cleansing) that utilizes salt, sage and prayer. Clearing the property of negative energy can make a huge difference, and may prompt your uninvited house-guests to move on. Most mediums are knowledgeable about, and experienced with, energy cleansing. Or, 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. Although, it is something you can do yourself, and it may be even more effective if you do perform the cleansing yourself, because it is your property, your personal space, and it is your will and energy that should dominate. I hope this will be helpful to you, and I wish you all the best. ~ Denise

      Feb 22 at approx 8 pm I was talking to my daughter as she prepared to go downstairs to her bedroom. As we spoke a rather large tangerine color sphere (size of a bread plate) appeared between us...I was in one room and she was at the door to exit to her room. It spun in two directions and small sparks were coming off of it. It looked like it was morphing itself from round to oval. It was about 6.5 ft off the ground and just sitting in mid air. it went from transparent to sold as it idled in place. Our gaze made us both stop talking and then this orb suddenly shot to the right and left then straight up. The orb had a comet type tail which as it disappeared the bright light of the tail was the last of what we could see.

      Hello PN252. That is quite an interesting, and exciting, orb encounter. Thank you for sharing. Generally, when an orb is in motion, a contrail may be visible, which can look like an appendage, a tail, or even resemble the exhaust vapors of a jet plane or the tail of a comet. Orb contrails are most often visible in photographs and videos; it is less common for orb contrails to be physically perceived with the naked eye. IMO, that makes your unique encounter even more unique. Best wishes ~ Denise

      I have noticed on several occasions during massage sessions with clients, random flashes of light resembling miniature comets and quick sparkles of light resembling stationary stars usually around or near the clients head. These occurrences seem to happen during sessions where there is an intense energetic connection between client and therapist and the client seems to be getting the most out of their massage, there is a strong healing and therapeutic sense in the room.

      I have had a few experiences with orbs.One experience was very negative and the others were positive.I'll talk about the positive one,since I am curious if this has happened to anyone.Years ago,I lived in a one bedroom apartment alone.It was very haunted and unpleasant most of the time.But I worked hard at trying to brighten up the energy with flowers and décor.Anyhow, in the afternoon I began seeing these small,nickel size round light purple orbs of light.They would dance around my ceiling and along the walls.At first,I assumed it was something reflecting from outside, then one day my boyfriend came over and saw them too.He asked what were they and I realized I saw them everyday and hadn't thought much beyond that.He said,I think those are orbs and when he said that,they moved closer to us.I tried to sense where they were from(hoping they weren't related to the ghost) but I did not get a human vibe from them.I felt like they were extraterrestrial or something otherworldly.They felt very pleasant and playful.After the jumped around the ceiling for awhile,they moved close and one stretched along the doorframe.I went over and it let me touch it.It felt like the way a plastic bag full of ice cold water feels.Cold, clearly liquid,but solid..Then it zipped away.We were both so excited to be visited.I soon moved out because of the hauntings,not related to the orb.

      My other significant orb experience was at my friend's ranch.I had had paranormal experiences with her ranch before.One weekend, I went up to the ranch(near Mt.Shasta) for a wedding.I was grateful I was sleeping in a tent outdoors because I had been harassed by ghosts in the house on previous visits.The first night, I awoke in the middle of the night because I needed to use the bathroom inside the house.When I entered the darkened house,I felt an energy in the hallway.I looked at it,turned to go to the bathroom.When I looked back,all of a sudden a basketball sized black orb shot at me,knocking the coats that were hanging up along the hallway, to the floor.I told it to keep away from me and went to the bathroom and then hurried back to the tent.Early in the morning,when I awoke,I told my tentmates what had happened and went into the house.I was still incredulous about it,but then I looked and all the coats that the orb knocked off were still on the floor..I still don't know which energies it was,obviously angry.My friend,whose family owned the ranch, told me it was on Native American land, but also her mother had committed suicide after shooting her father,so there was some very angry energy around..so those are my top 2 orb experiences.

      Hello Aes. I have heard of, and experienced, such energy exchange/transference, and energy release during bodywork and alternative healing methods; though, the energy is generally felt—not seen. Actually seeing the energy is not extremely common. So, your experience is kind of unique, and very interesting. Thank you for sharing your experience.

      Dolores, all I can say is “wow.” I don’t even know how to respond to your post. You’ve had some incredible experiences. Evidently, you are highly sensitive to energies, and that makes you a spirit/orb magnet—for better or worse. I would imagine that you have a few other ‘abilities’ that you may, or may not, be utilizing at present. With the current thinning of ‘the veil’, the increased vibratory levels, and sightings on the rise… I would venture to say that you are in for a wild ride, girlfriend. How exciting!

      Because of the thinning of the veil, I decided to look on the internet to see if anyone has answers or ideas.I have had paranormal experiences my whole life and my Grandfathers(both sides) and my Aunt have told me their experiences, and it just seems weird that so many people have paranormal experiences and yet we are either to embarrassed to talk about it or too frightened.I want to know more.I have so many different forms of psychic experiences,some of which I have been keeping notes on since I was 18(very frequent recurring future dreams of places I go to) ghosts, spirit guides, premonitions, UFO strangeness- it is weird that I have so many different types of experiences, some of which I had to try to push away because I don't have time or energy to deal with it sometimes..I want to know more.I want to know other people's experiences.Basically,what is happening? Why is the veil thinning? I have so many questions..so I am here reading to see if anyone else knows what is up??

      One night I got up to go to the bathroom. The house I was living in was the house my grandfather died in recently and his ashes were still in the house because he had to take it to his burial place. I saw a orb by the box of ashes, it was about the size of a basketball and it was light purple in the center and dark on the outsides of the orb. It flew around my head and when I turned so I could look at it again it was gone. It wasn't a negative energy it just creeped me out. When I told my mother about this experience she told me about how she believed her dad's spirit was still in the house because one night soon after his death she was crying really hard about him being gone and the lights around her that were deemed started to get brighter and brighter

      Hi there. It's interesting to hear your thoughts on certain orbs possibly being portals.

      About ten years ago at the age of 15 I had a fully shared experience with a friend of mine in her dark bedroom. We watched energies flow throughout her room along with geometric patterns and of course - orbs. We watched them with the naked eye, there were different colors, and we were also able to touch (felt like the tiniest little electric shocks) and move them. Mostly they just flew around looking awesome, though. At one point during this experience I noticed that they were all flying out from the same direction. I looked up at the corner of her room and saw a huge, bright blue seeping/liquid area on the wall with the energies and orbs pouring out of it.

      I've never know anyone else (other than my friend who was there with me) to have such a vivid experience like this, especially so spontaneous and without the aid of any kinds of meditation or psychedelic substances.

      I have been a massage therapist for 20 years and can relate to Aes' experience of seeing little pinpoints of lights during the course of, not all but maybe 1 out of 10 massages that I perform. This started happening about 8 years into my practice. The color is a brilliant colbalt blue and mostly occurs in the upper body but I have seen it in the lower body as well and it is not always right where I am applying my touch. These experiences do tend to happen when I feel the client feels a trusting connection to my energy and thus allows healing to take place. I've always intuitively felt as though seeing the blue lights were a very positive sign and serve to be a sign that blocked energy in the client is released. Thank you for sharing your story, Aes, as I have tried to explain this very thing to other massage therapists through the years and no one had ever experienced the same. :) Great blog, DC. Thank you for sharing.

      Hello, regarding orbs, there is a little experience I want to share which happened before 5 years, so around 2008. It was a simple bright day and I was waiting together with my classmates at the busstop. Behind us just a smal field of grass and while my classmates were talking with each other. I instead just watched that little field, now there was one little glowing light, some meters away from me. Since i had been training and meditating, i thought it was just a single floater. But it certainly didn't seem to influenced by the movement of my head. Well it must be an insect so my thoughts, sun shining and it glitters or something. But here is the strange part, it then began to fly up and then suddenly accelerated with an hell of speed up into the sky. Well i am not one of those ufo or ghost believers, well i believe in all paranormal things, they just have to follow some little basic physical laws and have some sense. Well most explanations for ghost and ufos don't really have either. Still what is that thing, i am somewhat intrigued a little insect which can fly reallllly fast though or something entirely else. Like said before i was still training hard at that time so some sensory malfunction may also be the reason for me seeing that thing. only the accelerating can't really explain.

      What does it mean when you see an orb move in front of you? I was taking a photo with my iphone and that pause before it takes where it is focusing is where i saw it zoom around. I took the photo and then went to take it again so it wasn't in the photo and it did it again.

      This is the first time ive seen one in real life move.

      They always show up in the photos taken in our home. One in the bedroom, three in the basement.

      Thanks for your time

      I have seen a glowing, golden orb flying through the air, about the size of a baseball. It was going pretty fast (I'd say about 10-15 MPH) over some single floor houses, when I was walking down a street late one night. I was thinking to myself; What is that!? When it got to be right across from me, it stopped for about 3-5 seconds, and then it took off again. It happened about 10 years ago, and I still haven't forgot about it. I still wonder what it was. I'm a believer in the Lord Jesus Christ, so I'm trying to find some kind of Biblical take on it. Could someone help point me in the right direction?

      CKlink84: Amazing to see one of these, isn't it? And when you tell anyone they think you're nuts. I saw one 3 years ago, the night I returned to church after a 10 year absence. That night, I had a horrible nightmare in which I was attacked, crushed and paralyzed by a demon. I cried out for Jesus and the attack stopped and the demon fled. I woke up terrified out of my skull, just laying in bed hyperventilating, heart pounding, and after a few seconds I turned over onto my back and came face-to-face with a white orb about 7 inches in diameter with a large halo surrounding it. I felt instantly and unnaturally calm, and laid there amazed, just watching it for approximately 4 minutes until it slowly faded into blackness. Within seconds of it's disappearance, I was fast asleep. Now ask yourself this: what has the power to make a terrified person suddenly calm, and to make a wide-awake person instantly fall asleep? What has the ability to respond to your worst nightmares, which means, of course, that it knows what is going on in your mind? And not just any nightmare, but a nightmare about an angry demon, who's attacking you because you've returned to church? People have many opinions about what these orbs are but in my not so humble opinion, they could be nothing except angels. Here's my second bit of evidence: Two years later, my husband was feeling ill so I did something I have never done before: I prayed over him. I laid my hands on his head and the whole shebang. We went to bed a half-hour later, and when we turned out the lights, there was a bright China blue orb bouncing along right in front of us! It zig zagged along for about 3 feet and then vanished. And you know what? My husband was the only one who saw it! With power like this, and considering the religious context that they appeared to us, I have no choice but to conclude that they are angels. As for the Bible, I don't think you'll find any clues there. But the Lord can work any way he chooses. Check out this hub: https://exemplore.com/ufos-aliens/White-Ball-Of-Li...

      There are many stories about people being put to sleep by these things. I thought I was alone until I read these. Amazing. And check out Max Greiner's website http://www.maxgreinerart.com/angelorbs.html. He has a Christian perspective on the orbs, which is pretty unique on the internet, as most explanations you'll find are new-age, which I reject for the above reasons I wrote. Peace!

      The the other day (on Halloween actually) I was in one of my classes and we were doing an activity on the chalk board. Everyone was reading off of a paragraph written on the board when suddenly I started to see orbs appear, a little bluish and sometimes yellow. They would appear and disappear kind of like how the colors of gasoline move around. I was so shocked I almost grabbed the guys arm next to me and asked him if he saw it. But everyone else didn't seemed phased so I stopped myself and just continued to take in this phenomenon I seemed to be the only one witnessing. There were about 10 orbs appearing and disappearing and then a shimmering energy form appeared. Not really in any specific shape, almost like an entity appearing to me. Then my teacher pulled down the projector screen right over where I was witnessing this and that was the end of that.

      I've lived in this apartment for 3 years. My boyfriend has always said he feels something here with us. Our cat is always playing with something we don't see. The other night for the first time I witnessed orbs shooting around my home. At first I thought it was pretty cool and started taking photos. I caught a lot or orbs in my pics. But as I took my final photo I saw an orb fly strait for me and it hit me. I saw it, I felt it. I heard this whistle ringing noise in my ears. I felt like I got zapped or stunned. When I realized what happened I immediately threw my coat and shoes on and left. I havnt been the same since and I've been scowering the Internet looking for some insight. Has anyone else experienced being hit by an orb?

      Did I absorb some sort of energy? Or did it bounce off of me or go three me.

      I apologize for my delayed response. I would imagine that if an orb is appearing in front of you, "in your face", so to speak, that it wants you to notice it, to pay attention.

      CKlink84: I apologize for my delayed response. According to my previous research, many people liken a gold colored orb to the angelic realms. I do recall from biblical stories and spiritual stories that angels first appear as a ball of light just before manifesting as what we might perceive as an angel. I know that some truths and guidance survived the many translations, re-translations, editing and re-editing of the Bible over the ages. Pertaining to orbs of light, the only passage that comes to my mind at the moment is Job 38:35... "Can you send forth lightnings, that they may go and say to thee, 'Here we are'?" Light appears out of nowhere to make its presence known. I also know that God advises us to not necessarily trust in what man says, but trust what your heart and soul tells you is true. What resonates with you. Trust in what you feel about the orb. Did you feel that it was menacing, or that it was comforting? When in doubt, ask God. "Ask, and ye shall receive. Seek, and ye shall find. Knock, and the door shall be opened unto thee." (Matthew 7:7) "If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you." (James 1:5) Ask God to reveal to you the true nature of the orb, and trust your feelings and insight.

      Hello Mpen: In what way have you not been the same? Did the experience simply rock your world, or did you somehow change mentally, emotionally, physically, etc.? Energy is energy. We can affect it or be affected by it. Although, I have never heard of anyone being harmed by an orb, even though close encounters or contact may have occurred. Whether or not the orbs are associated with the presence that your boyfriend feels in the apartment, you have the right to claim your personal space. If you are not comfortable with the presence or the orbs, you have the right to tell them to leave. Be firm in your intentions (do not even be slightly curious about them), and tell them to move on to their next level of development. At the same time, you may want to visualize yourself and your boyfriend, or your entire apartment being surrounded by a white light of love and protection. But be very firm in your intentions and your request. Hope this helps.

      My awesome incounter with a number of small white diamond shaped orbes.About 2in. In length By 1in. In width.This all 'lloccured one mnight I was in my room after midnight, My wife lie asleep in bed next to me.Coud not sleep I began looking out the window which our bed was pushed up against the window.Focused on the clear sky, Then I spot a tiny light descending from high in sky.Then I noticed another the same shape color following aways behind then another and another I was frozen I tried to wake my wife but I could not move and could not get the words out.Frozen I could see about 10 to 12 of them just hoovering right below the roof right in front of the window, one of them began to dance for me up down side to side Im trying to get a grip on what was happening.After the dancing by the first oarb It went up about 8ft, their was a palm tree it stopped atop of a healthy palm branch, palmleaf and one by one they hooverd about 1in from the palm leaf as they landed in a ovalish line one each took position on their own palmblade half ways in middle of palm leaf.Don't know how long most of night before I see the lead oarb start ascend just as they came one followed the other after some distance another woulascend tell I could see them all ascending single file some legnth between them.Early at sunrise snaped out of it woke my wife and told her all about it.She said I was dreaming ended up calling me crazy, I said no, lets go outside and look at the palm leaf.So we did and to our amazement we saw diamond shaped burns all in the exact way I described it.Blown away the proof is their in plain sight.Yea she believed my awesome incounter.The diamond shape oarbes looked to have sorta of a flexible solid mass that changed shape slightly it left traces of its movements that could have been liquidplasma or energy that kinda seem to blast off looked like alittle rocket tail fiery boost of some sort not sure wat all took place could only remember wat I described, not much for 4 to 5 hour incounter.The palm leaf was still their a lot o years later, and so were the diamond shape burns.Me and wife have had other unexplained incounters threw the years.

      I have an ongoing house full of orbs. Sometimes I only see a few but most of the time there are between 10 to 50 or more. My dog is bothered by their presence. I myself am not but am very curious as to why they are in my home. And why there's so many of them. I would like to know if my house is some kind of portal or gateway. Or if I may be living on or close to an indian burial ground. I live across from the lake in the beautiful san bernadino mountains. I have many pictures throughout my life with orbs in them. But never really noticed them till the last couple years. I would love to know how to communicate with them but am a little nervous because I have to live here alone with my dog and there are so many all the time. I mostly am very comfortable with their presence but from time to time I get a bit uneasy.

      I've seen orbs zipping around when I'm about to take a picture, BUT, ever since I started seeing them, I have been very ill, nauseas, tired, just NO energy or motivation whatsoever. I would LOVE to think mine are positive, but with the way I've felt the past couple of years, I'm beginning to think mine are NOT positive. It's HARD to photograph the one's I've been seeing as they zip around so fast, and once, there were like 6 or 7 of those things zipping around. I was able to get a photo ONCE, BUT then when I downloaded it to my computer, my computer crashed and I lost all my photos! There is definitely something WICKED in my house though. My cats won't even come in anymore, and if I try to make them, they start hissing and growling, drop really low to the ground and try to crawl out undetected AS QUICK AS POSSIBLE, which freaks me out as well. About a year ago, I was sitting at my desk working and one of my cats was at my office door - I began to hear a loud growling coming from under the stairs by my office, and even my cat dropped down on the defense and looked in the way of the growling - her hair stood on end and she went RUNNING toward my window like she was gonna jump out the window - BUT THE WINDOW WAS CLOSED! She WOULD NOT go back by the stairs where that growling was coming from and I had to open my window and let her out because she was freaking out so bad. I looked where the growling was coming from but there was nothing there, but you should've heard this growl, it was very deep, VERY LOUD and malicious sounding. It scared me really bad! I actually still have ONE really good photo of something that was lingering in the top of my stairwell, but it's not orb shaped, it's shaped like a human. I know I sound crazy, but this stuff IS REAL and it's draining the life energy from my body DAILY. I've tried to get rid of it, or THEM but it's been to no avail. I even had "ghost hunters" come here from my city and NONE of their equipment would stay charged enough to get any sort of readings, they kept opening up new battaries only for THEM to go dead within seconds of installing them. IT'S CRAZY at my house, and I HATE IT! I also have a Bible that was handed down to me by my mother, and whatever is here is DESTROYING IT little by little, but the FIRST thing it did to it was carve a HUGE X on the front leather cover of it, then after that, the books in the Bible have been slowly being ripped out - I don't even know where the parts that got ripped out are, they're just gone. I've had people COME HERE to help but when they arrived, they won't even come in, they just say there's nothing they can do! I even had a Shaman tell me to NEVER contact him again because the "force" in my home is so powerfully strong that he's not willing to risk it attaching to him, and when a Shaman can't do anything, it HAS to be bad! Whatever IS here, scared that Shaman pretty bad, and if HE'S SCARED, I'M SCARED. Anyway, sorry this was so long, I just needed to get it off my chest AGAIN in hopes that MAYBE one day somebody will be able to help me.

      I see and photograph orbs, most every day. My impression is they are extraterrestrial and dimensional (or parallel universe as part of a multi-verse) beings. Is a spirit a dimensional being is the question I have? I do not believe anyone knows at this time, but imo they are one in the same. I know they use telepathy as I to communicate in a simple way with them. I think telepathy is a natural part of our evolution as a human being and probably all beings. Great post!

      Hi DC,

      Great blog!

      First off, I have to confess that I believe in the seen and unseen, fairies, elves, am sensitive to spirits & believe in angels. And from the place where I grew up, people generally believe all these, and we refer to the people who can see the unseen as gifted or in possession of a 3rd eye. We don't refer them for a Psych. consult.

      Anyway, we moved from NY to NJ in this 1959 model house, well kept and quiet neighborhood. 1st few months, I fell off the stairs going down the 1st floor and had a small fracture in my coccyx. My husband & I seem to be unpleasant to each other which we thought was adjustment to new house/responsibility etc. One evening, before dinner, my mom & I heard like someone is setting the table, silverware & plates were banging on the glass table & we are directly looking at the empty table! Mom will hear someone snoring in her room when she is awake and nobody else is in the house, and once, my mom & my late father heard the sound my oldest daughter does when she combs her long hair, the brush hitting the edge of her table and they really thought my daughter is in her room and were astonished to see her with us coming home from the grocery store. And through the years, every Thanksgiving, my oven will just totally die and the following day when someone comes to repair it, they'll say, everything is okay, it's functions well. So, before we summon someone else after Thanksgiving, we'll turn the oven on and it'll be 'on'. My oldest daughter has the '3rd eye' which later she said she didn't tell me because she's afraid I'll send her to see a Psychiatrist, poor kid. She had been seeing an old man who seem in bad mood standing by my computer at times and she regularly sees and have conversation with an 1800's school age child which she said was Elizabeth, bonnet in her head and white dress, she will appear to her when my daughter draws and she'll ask my daughter what's she's doing and my daughter will say, 'I'm drawing'. It is not til I sent her back to my country that she sightings of things increased exponentially. I bought a house there near she school which unbeknownst to us used to be a Japanese camp during WWII. She began seeing more scenarios that other people in the area had seen, such as a Japanese guard who'll keep my aunt & uncle awake through the night with his marching in front of their house! She regularly sees this pregnant woman inside the house in labor pains who had not survived childbirth as people later informed my daughter. She said it's probably the same woman who was heard crying during the night by my sister whom she thought was a neighbor but to their astonishment, they don't have a neighbor on the other side of the wall! During Lent, sightings are more prominent. It struck me that people who had passed on and who are somewhat earthbound go to church. My daughter commented one night to her cousin back in my country that the 'standing room only' area to the back of church is so thick with people. And her cousin looked back & said "what are you talking about? We are the only ones in the last pew". My daughter was astonished that the ones standing at the back area look like regular people and she's the only one seeing them. The spirits supposedly abound during when there is a storm, lightning or thunder or when it is about to rain.

      Anyway, I digress so far, I can tell you so many stories but then it'll be hogging your space.

      Back to my house here in NJ. I regularly ask the house to be blessed every 3 years, have crosses on the bedrooms, holy water and try to say The Rosary every night. Changed all the windows, sidings, roof and doors of the house, put bells on the main door, chimes, crystal on some parts of the house. These activities bring me comfort and increase my courage to what is unexplainable.

      When our middle child was perhaps few months old, at that time she does not turn to her sides yet, I left her asleep in the bedroom while I ran downstairs to put something on the stove. I heard her cry and found her on the floor far from the edge of the bed which I found was odd. Even if she was able to turn to her side and manage to fall off the bed, she should not be so far from the edge of the bed.

      This same baby who always seem to sleep so soundly will cry so loud at exactly 3 AM , she'll cry so loud like she is in pain or in some discomfort. I will then bring her to the living, sit on the rocking chair, and there we'll sleep in the rocking chair until daylight. This goes on daily until one day, I decided the baby & I will sleep in the living room and we slept in peace without the 3 AM crying inconsolably. I have an idea why 3AM but would like to hear your opinion.

      When this same baby grew up to be pre-school, we'll occasionally sleep in the living specially when it's winter since their room is above the garage. One night, I awoke at 3 AM,look straight onto the upper hallway and saw some glow-in-the-dark

      rounded beads in the shape of a fat alligator like it's standing on its 2 feet, Barney (the dinosaur) came to mind, I rubbed my eyes many times to be sure I am not dreaming, and I heard my pre-school age daughter moan, like she's whimpering in discomfort, she's on the sofa and ~10 inches above her appears like a small alligator, shaped in glow-in -the dark beads on it's fours, like her size. I got up, woke up my daughter and asked her if she was having a bad dream, she said yes.

      Most of the time when this daughter of mine can't sleep or has a bad dream, I will pray over head, mostly say The Rosary and she'll sleep.

      The thing is that I don't feel that there's bad spirit in the house, I usually could feel it if it's of a bad nature. I do try to tell whatever it is, to not disturb the girls and I try to tell them I will offer prayers for them.

      Last night, this same child cannot sleep, 2nd night in that same bedroom over the garage after spending so many months in the living room due to the cold weather. And yes, the 2nd time she came down to tell me she can't sleep, I thought I saw her in her red robe with all the glow-in-the-dark beads sparkling all over her robe. I went up to spend the night in her room saying The Rosary, thank God, it's snow day today because this poor kid didn't sleep very well . God is very kind to give us the snow earlier than predicted :)

      The town borough said that this land where our house is was a Dutch farmland. I could have told the clerk I knew that through my dream but I didn't. Before calling the borough, on a Thanksgiving week, I dreamed of a young woman standing by my kitchen door with kerchief on her head, brown apron and a very old woman sitting, I was preparing Thanksgiving stuff and I had a short conversation with the young woman. I said to her "you are not of this world, right?" she said pleasantly, 'yes". In my dream , I seem to know she is of Dutch ancestry, and the surrounding area looks like an old farm. and in that conversation, I thought we're bargaining as to how to take turns to use the oven. It was a pleasant dream.

      I'm writing to you since I would like to know what the significance of the glow-in-the-dark beads (I call them that since they are green illuminated rounded objects, large like rosary beads) that appeared like an alligator, I am confounded by it's appearance. By the way, I regularly see orbs in my photos at home specially if we are celebrating something, they are bigger and more detailed in appearance. and in old hotels, they don't bother or frighten me. But, since my father's passing, I stopped seeing the orbs at home in photos.

      I apologize for a long comment. It's nice that people are starting to be more open about things we can't explain scientifically but is as real as the warmth of the sun. Thanks for your blog, God bless you.

      T.D.

      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.

      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 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!

      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

      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 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.

      AmIcrazy 3 years ago

      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.

      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.

      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

      In November last year an orb appeared to me whilst i was in my bedroom and floated towards me and entered my body going into my chest area, this is the first time anything like this has happened to me. Do you have any explanation about what this could mean?

      DC Ziese 3 years ago from Virginia, USA

      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

      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

      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 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 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

      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.

      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.

      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.

      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 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.

      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

      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.

      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.

      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

      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 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

      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.

      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 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

      DC Ziese 2 years ago from Virginia, USA

      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

      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.

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!!

      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

      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

      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 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

      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 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

      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.

      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!...

      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.

      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.

      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.

      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 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!

      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 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

      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?

      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

      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

      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

      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 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.

      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.

      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

      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

      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 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

      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.

      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.
