Spirit Orbs

So I mentioned spirit orbs on my social networks and a few people were curious, others were, well…let’s just say skeptical. Either way, let us talk about it.

Back story: Ever since I was about 8 or 9 I’ve been seeing spirits in general. The first time I ever saw one with my own eyes, I was living in a blue house upstate NY. I remember opening the door my mothers room and a white figure whooshed behind the door. It freaked me out. Many occurrences happened like that so I would close my eyes, open the door, and turn on the light before I opened my eyes again. Also in that same house I remember seeing a similar white figure going down the stairs to my family room. There were other “interesting” occurrences that happened at that house, but that is neither here nor there.

Fast forward about 15 years later and here I am. All types of intrigued and interested in everything spirituality. Recently, I have been seeing orb-like things in my vision more frequently (I’ve also been seeing this since a child). Best way to describe it is an orb floating across your eye. Sometimes they’re golden, sometimes they’re green, sometimes they’re blue….I never know what I’m going to get. I have also seen them zip across my plane of vision. Now-a-days they don’t scare me at all. I try to see what message they have for me or just feel whatever energy they bring.

SO WHAT ARE THESE THINGS? Some believe that they are spirits/spirit guides. Some say that they are little balls of energy. Some say that it is a spirit trying to use some form of energy to manifest into this world. I’m not sure, I’m no expert. I have seen and read people’s personal experiences and they usually have some sense of another presence being there.

Also with orbs, they say that the different color orbs you see can mean or represent something. Here is what I found.

Clear Orbs: Clear orbs may be a sign that an entity is trying to communicate with you. The spirit may be trying to let the living know that some kind of significant event happened in that location, and that the spirit wants help to move on.

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. Some people interpret this 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.

Red or Orange Orbs: 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.

Green Orbs: 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: Blue is spiritually associated with psychic energy and truth. It is a very calming color, and many people associate it with spiritual guidance. Some people feel blue orbs are are sign of a calming presence or energy, while others feel they indicate the presence of a spirit guide in that location.

The past couple of days I have had two encounters with orbs. Both times there was no flash used. Even when I took the picture, I had my camera on a self timer and I had to pick the phone up multiple times to move it around after each shot. They all came out with orbs around the same area. The first one was while I was in a sun shower on my way home from work. I took a video and I didn’t realize the little green orb was there until I played the video back when I got home. I was feeling all types of lovey and happy when I was in the car, sun shining, arm outstretched in the rain listening to “Divinity” by Sza & Jill Scott. A green orb was very fitting.

I actually have this little orb on video!

The next encounter was this morning. I went hiking early in the morning with my room mate. When we got to the top, we sat and meditated (that was a whole other experience. While I was meditating I saw red, yellow, orange, & white lights. When I came out of my meditation, it was like there was a blue filter over my eyes). I took a picture & again…there was a little blue orb above my arm/on my room mates arm. Up on the top of that mountain, there was this sense of peace. During my meditation it felt like someone was pushing/rocking me to the right & the wind would blow. The intense rocking would pick back up and then the rocking would start again until the wind blew once more. It was like someone was beckoning me, I asked what I should do, I got no answer, the rocking just continued.


You can see the little blue orb + a yellowish shape on my lap
Another shot of the orb. This time it has a glowing blue light + a vertical stream of blue light below it.
I also went through some of my printed pictures & I found a couple photos with orbs in them. 


My personal belief is that these orbs have different purposes. Sometimes they are a spirit that needs to be there for some reason/to tell us something, sometimes it is an energy that you need to feel. Either way, they’re there.

Have you ever had any experiences with orbs or spirits?

  1. (im sorry if this is long, but nobody I know in person other than family actually believe in stuff like this. Sometimes I feel crazy because I talk about my experiences and people look at me like I have 8 heads!! But I reallly wanna share!) I have actually had a lot of experiences with orbs and spirits! The only difference is these experiences are usually a negative and Im not exactly sure why. I remember when I was about 6 or 7, I used to live in this old farm house. I mean it was very old, it was made in the 1920’s I believe? The back story of this house is that a little girl and a little boy died in a chimney fire that occured in the house. So anyways, my mother wasn’t a very good woman. She used to run off with men, and leave her children with practically next to nothing, so the people who raised me were my siblings. I have 5 of them, 4 older and 1 younger. However, only three of them raised us because my little brother, second oldest brother and I were too young to fend for ourselves. My sister Nikki was about 22 at this time, my brother RJ was about 20, my sister Shyann was 16 (these were the ones who raised us), Travis was about 12 years old and Liam was about 5. So all of us were pretty young. (Just to give you an idea). So this house was actually very scary, I always felt so.. Scared and unsafe. I got really really sick this one time and my sister Shyann put me to bed, and that’s when I felt it – a little tug on the back of my hair. I wasn’t frightened or anything, just really confused. When I looked behind me to see what pulled my hair, I saw a little boy in between the wall and my bed frame (there was about three inches of room between the wall and bedframe because the vent was there and we didn’t want to cover it). The little boy didn’t do anything, he smiled at me and then slowly faded. I just put it off as I was very sick and my mind was playing tricks on me. Fast forward 9 years and Im there (last summer) at my brother RJ’s house, we began talking about the farm house. I brought up the little boy that pulled my hair, and his facial expression changed so I thought I scared him by my story. Instead he looks at me and says “you just brought tears to my eyes” I was confused and asked him why? He then told me about his experience! It started with my little brother Liam being scared to sleep alone because a little boy kept on sneaking into his room and sitting at the end of his bed. My siblings just ignored it and past it off as overactive imagination, until one night. Im not sure where Travis, Liam and I were unless we all slept in the same room this night because RJ took Liam’s room. He told me that he was laying there trying to sleep when the door suddenly opened, and he was like okay wind… So he closed it over completely. A few minutes go by, and the door opens again. At this point he’s getting creeped out, until he feels something sit at the end of his bed and that REALLY scares him so he runs out of the room and goes downstairs to tell his cousins (yes his, my siblings and I all have different fathers) about his experience until he realizes that they’re no longer there. So he calls them up and asked them where they went – they told him that they ran out of our house as fast as they could because they both were awakened by a very cold hand grabbing their arms. I mean I would have ran out too! My brother also told me that when our mom was home (she is an alcoholic) she used to go to bed after having a bottle of wine and she used to scream out “whoever is in my room playing with my hair stop it this isn’t funny!” And my siblings were like yeah okay mom you’re just drunk go to sleep. Until my brother had his experience with the little boy, he then felt bad for not believing my mom. Also, I used to hear people walking up our stairs and down our hallway – I used to check who it was and as you may have guessed, nobody was there. As a little girl this really scared me. I also may add that in the basement, an inverted pentagram was painted on the floor, with 5 candles all at each point of the star with a bunch of really creepy sayings painted everywhere. The music also used to turn on by itself, and if music was already playing it would either get really loud by itself or get really quiet. This one night we were all upstairs, and the music came on and we just thought that our mother had finally came home because she really liked blasting music when she was drunk, so we ignored it. When we didn’t hear her voice, or see her come up to say hi, we got worried so we went downstairs and guess what? Mom still wasn’t home. Creepiest thing of my life. What tops it all off is my sister Shyann, she has a thing for picking noses. I think she developed this habit because of her nose ring. One morning we all woke up and my little brother was coughing really badly (he had asthma) and I remember my sister looking worried and for some reason she decided to go around picking all of our noses. I know sounds strange, but good thing she did because our noses were filled with really thick black stuff! Later that day the guys who come to clean our chimney told us that if they didn’t come that day, we probably woul have all died in a chimney fire because apparently our chimney was clogged. They told us that my brother was coughing really badly and our noses were filled with black stuff was because over night our house filled with smoke – which was scary because nobody ever ever used the fireplace in the house due to the fear of burning the place down! At this point the house was new to us because we didn’t move in not long before this, and when we moved in our chimney was cleaned out AND like I stated before, we never ever had any fires in the fireplace so why our chimney was so clogged and our house was filled with smoke is still a mystery.

    As to orbs, the only times I have ever encountered an orb is around toddlers! They’re usually a gold color, or they’re blue/green. It’s all a big mystery to me, I have so many more experiences but it is all so much to type, but honestly many of them terrify the absolute *shit* out of me because there is always a negative feel around the situation(s).

    None the less, thank you so much for reading my realllllyy really long story. Nothing has been the same since that house.


    1. No worries love, we all need someone to vent to at times! Sorry for the situation with your mother, at least you & your siblings had each other. As far as the upside down pentagram, that doesn’t sound like anything associated with light lol. So that alone would have raised red flags for me. But yes spirits are real! Next time you go there (not sure if you still live there) smudge the place out with sage! Bad spirits don’t like that.


      1. Thank you, it was tough growing up it really really was.. And trust me the inverted pentagram raised red flags for all of us.. Well I was young at the time, but as I grew older it clicked in my brain what was actually down there. That’s what I mean when I say nothing has been the same since that house, ever since I felt as if something (evil) has like clung themselves to my siblings because I really really feel it whenever I visit them! And oh yes spirits are DEFINITELY real! Now many years later, my siblings claim to be very spiritual people. I mean, of course I do too but it’s just funny how some things turn out! As for the house, I will never ever go there again.. It was just an overall bad experience for the whole time that we lived there, my mom moved us a million times – thank God I am planted somewhere permanetly now! But the smudging part I believe wouldn’t have helped because I remember my oldest sibling Nikki got that house blessed two or three times, and they tried everything in their power to get whatever was in there out! Whatever type of spirit that little boy was wants to stay in that house..
