My Experience With Orbs

   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 day.
   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. 


  1. I love this post! I have always been intrigued with the paranormal. I myself would have been scared when I experienced the orb and would not have looked into. I think its interesting though how when we find out that what is trying to contact us is supposedly a loved one all the fear and anxiety just disappears. Hopefully one day I get to experince such a phenomenon.

  2. I agree, I love this post too! I have never actually experienced a face to face with one of these things, but at my old house there used to be so many pictures with big orbs in it, or what we thought were orbs. I do not think that every single circle seen in a photograph is an orb, but there was one significant picture that was taken at my old house back in 2009 and in the background of the picture behind my sister was a big orb like circle. I zoomed up close to it and inside of the circle seemed to resemble a distinct face. For all I know it may have just been a coincidence, but it still creeped me out!
