What are orbs and exactly what do they mean?
There are many differing opinions as to what orbs actually are. Some people believe, as do I, that they are spiritual energy, and are the first stage of a full blown spiritual manifestation. They are sometimes described as lifeforms that sometimes travel in groups and are believed to be the soul or lifeforce that once inhabited a physical body. It is also said that these are spirits that have willingly stayed behind because they feel bound to their previous lives and or locations.
It is believed spirits prefer the form of an orb because it uses less energy, with the theory that the bigger the orb or the larger more human like shape using the most energy in comparison to a small orb using the least energy. Some people believe, me being one of them, that life energy does not die or cease to exist when the body dies; it simply takes on a different form. That when the body dies, the spirit with all its intellegence, memories and personality lives on in another world known as the “spirit world”. Some believe the spirit world is all around us occupying space at a different vibrational speed than our own. Others believe that when you die that is the end, that our biological presence on earth is the be all and end all of our natural existance completely, like switching off a light.
Orbs are rarely visible to the naked eye but are a frequently photographed anomoly. This does not mean that they cannot be seen without a camera, for many believe thay have seen full manifestations or obs that have appeared to them, it is just a very unique occurance. Orbs can be any colour, though usually they are off white or milky and can be any shape or size but typically circular. They may appear very clearly or sometimes fuzzy in isolation or in clusters. They seem to move very fast and suprisingly not speradically, they seem to be on a pedetermined path unless that path becomes interrupted by another energy. Spirit orbs are believed to have faces or snake like patterns within them and tend to have a nucleus of somekind. This helps us identify and determine whether it is an actual spiritual orb or just a dust particle or some moisture on the camera lens. Just because you dont catch an orb or spirit on camera it does not mean they are’nt present, it may just mean they dont have enough energy to manafest. In this instance you may find that they create cold spots instead of visual aids to show their presence, the cold being caused by the spirit absorbing the thermal energy out of the atmosphere around that particular area in order to manafest.
Some people believe that an orb is like the earth and although it is small in comparison to other planets it carries life within it and the same goes for orbs, that an orb doesnt carry a single spirit – it carries many and thats why when people die they say they can see their family members waiting for them.
Some may believe that obs are nothing but smudges, glitches or dust particles caught by reflections of light and or moisture on the lens. For these people the spirit world does not exist and that the physical matter of our realm is the one and only realm, wheather alive or no longer with us . The mind needs to be open to every possible explaination .
How to catch spirit orbs on film
Step one: pick your camera digital cameras are recommended due to the facet you can view the image immediately after it has been taken and you can also upload it on to the computer and explore it further but 35mm cameras work just as well and are prefered by some because it dosent inccur glitches or slow shutter speeds.
Step two: Learn what causes orbs in many of your pictures . Orbs can be caused by reflections of dust or moisture in the air. So be careful when moving around so as not to disturb any dust that may be present and when taking pictures outside be sure it is on a dry night so to avoid an moisture particles in the air.
Step three: When going to haunted locations be sure to take spare batteries along with you as sometimes spirits tend to drain the energy from them.
Step four: Take lots of photos. Experts take hundreds of pictures during an investigation and may only catch one or two actaul spirit orbs .
Step five: Try to encourage the spirits to interact with you by talking to them or asking them to show you a sign that they are there you may hear noises as this is what some spirits do to make contact but this may help you catch a manafesting spirit or orb in a photo.
Orbs sometimes show themselves in an array of colours and many believe their are different meanings for these colours. here is a chart to show the different meanings:
We have caught many orbs on our investigations and here are a few for you to make up your mind whether you think they are real spirit orbs or just specks of dust? Are you a believer or a non believer?.
