What are Orbs ?
Is it Airborne Particles or Spirit Energy?

What are orbs?


What are orbs ? Are they a photographic error or backscatter created by water spots or airborne particles on the lens? Or, are orbs spirit energy?

Although I do not have the answer to the questions above, I can only supply the reader with information taken from other sources, which indicate that they are spirit emanations. It is up to the reader to determine whether orbs are spirit emanations or a photographic error caused by camera defects.

My experience has been that spiritual orbs appear in high spirit energy areas, while nothing occurs in other areas. Although I do not fully understand the whys or hows, I find it exciting and comforting to know that we are not alone if they are spirit energy.

The idea of orbs being spiritual energy goes back many years. In 1906, C.V.Miller, a spiritual medium, visited Munich, Germany. During his visit, he conducted séances at private residences. It was noted that luminous globes, orbs, or clouds would take form near the ceiling during the séances.

In the annals of Psychic Science (#21, 1906) C.de Vesme reported, "A white ball, as of gas, about a quarter of a yard in diameter appeared in the air at the upper extremity of the curtains. Finally, it came down rested on the floor and in less than a minute changed into a long shape, was transformed into a draped human form, which subsequently spoke."

British medium Arthur Findlay wrote about a séance conducted by medium John Campbell Sloan. He stated, "lights the size of half a crown floated about the room, but I could not catch them..."

In Researches In The Phenomena Of Spiritualism (1874, Sir William Crookes wrote, "I have seen a solid luminous body, the size, and nearly the shape of a turkey's egg, float noiselessly about the room...and then gently descending to the floor. It was visible for more than 10 minutes, and before it faded away, it struck a table 3 times with a sound like that of a hard solid body."

During a visit to Lily Dale, my friend and I decided to go into the woods at night. With just a small flashlight to guide our footsteps, we headed to the stump area. Feeling a presence around us, I took a picture (see picture below to the left). In the center up high is a small luminous circular object. What I found to be intriguing is the object in the front. It appears to be the shape of two individuals-one larger than the other.

Klaus Heinemann and Gundi Heinemann, Orbs Their Mission and Messages of Hope, wrote that during a visit to San Giovanni Rotondo in Italy where Padre Pio's sarcophagus is located, they felt his presence in the room. When they took a photo of the area, it revealed a bright moving orb. 'Padre Pio's spirit was still bringing guidance and support to his followers."


Whether you believe that orbs are spirit emanations or not, it is a personal choice. Many things in life cannot be explained fully. Everything in life is possible.

"My boyfriend picked up a handmade armoire from a dumpster across the street. It was painted pink on one side. The other side was unpainted. The orb that appeared around the armoire was near the unpainted side. The orb appeared to have the face of a child. Above that orb was a lighter orb. It seemed to be the face of a girl or woman looking down at the child orb. They were both together within the same orb.

I had two Native American smudging books inside a box. In addition to the books, there were herbs, such as Lavender, White Sage, Pine, Mandrake Root, and others inside the box. The books were kept in the box for a long time. When I placed the books in the armoire, the orbs manifested into spirits. Although the naked eye does not see these spirits, they appear clearly in pictures.

My camera is a Sony high def, 7.2 pixels, 2.4 lcd monitor high sensitivity ISO 1000. This camera took all pictures of the orbs.

My boyfriend, whose camera is an Android, took pictures the following day. His cat was sitting on the maroon chair. When he called me to see the picture, there were two spirits in a mist. One looked like a young boy, and next to him appeared a girl or woman. Their heads were together.

I believe that by placing the books into the armoire, the orbs manifested into ghosts. Although not seen by the naked eye, their presence was visible through photos.

The handmade armoire was in a dumpster near a building where Brazilian people live. When I showed the pictures to someone, the person said the spirits might have been of a religion that originated from Africa called Candomble. I did research and learned a lot.

The number 11 also has some meaning. Last night, on a full moon, I wore my negative energy stones- Amber and Amethyst around my neck and smudged the house with white sage. I did a prayer to God to remove all negative energy. After the smudging, I did EVP work last night and took more pictures. However, no orbs are present.

I am a beacon and medium. Also, I am a healer who possesses high psychic powers. Spirits are drawn to me for help. I will let you know more. Post these two pictures together. I believe these orbs transformed into a mist of ghosts.

These orbs are real and not dust particles.

Thank you, and again God Bless. - with love Sandy."

(The last three pictures were taken by Sandy and her boyfriend.)

Recently, I attended Madame Tussauds' wax museum in New York City. Many photos were taken. However, the most interesting one was the wax figure of Whitney Houston. An Orb shape figure appeared next to the wax model. The other photos taken that same day were normal.

After viewing the Whitney Houston picture on different computers, I noticed that not all computers were able to show the numerous orbs displayed on the original photo.

Be aware that the sparkling lights in the background are not spiritual orbs.

The so-call orb is located on upper left side of her arm.
