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.
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.
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?
