When people hear the word "orb" they automatically think of those little circular dust particles that you sometimes see in photographs. That's what I use to think of; until 6 months ago. It was an early brisk January morning, my alarm was set for 6 a.m. in order to wake up for orientation for my internship. I normally wake up though out the night, so nothing was out of the ordinary when I awoke before my alarm went off; until I noticed something floating in the corner of my bedroom.
My smoke alarm gives off a blinking green light, so when I saw this
floating mass I thought it was just my smoke alarm, until I noticed my
smoke alarm was about 2 feet away from this object. I was fully awake at
this point; I rubbed my eyes and sat upright in my bed. That's when I
noticed this thing had to be an orb of some sort. I carefully got out of
my bed trying my absolute hardest not to bring to much attention to my
dog sleeping at the end of my bed, and walked up to this floating thing.
When I came what seemed face to face with it, I noticed some type of
design in the center. When I realized what I was staring at I became
slightly frightened and turned my light switch on; and it was gone. I
tested it one more time, so I turned off my lights and there was nothing
but my smoke alarm there. My alarm then went off and I was up for the
Before I left for orientation, I googled color of orbs and their
meanings. According to the internet, a green orb represents a loved one
that has passed away. Right off the bat I figured it was my grandpa who
lived with me up until his passing in 2009. Once I came to this
conclusion I was no longer frightened but enlightened by this experience
and felt lucky to have been visited by my grandpa. Maybe if we all open
our eyes a little more often, we could see things like this a little
more often. Attached will be a picture of what an orb looks like to give
you an idea; and no it was not the orb I personally saw that morning.
