Seeing Orbs Or Going Crazy


I am a new writer on YGS but I have been reading other people's stories for a while now. And I would like to get some other people's opinions on what I have been seeing.

I am not sure when I first started seeing stuff, it has been quite a few years now. At random times and random places I see what I think to be orbs. I am not sure if that is what they really are. It is just what I believe them to be from my latest experience.

I say that I don't know what they are because I only see them at a quick glance. Small objects that are there when I glance over them but when I look back they are gone. They come in different colors but mostly I see them as black shadows. They are always small in size, sometimes I am just looking straight ahead and I will see them zip through my vision out of the corner of my eye. I have never been able to get a good look at them until about two days ago.

I was in my room getting ready for school, it was around 7:00. I was standing in front of my mirror straightening my hair. While looking through the mirror, I saw a ball of white light about the size of a golf ball appear from behind my head and go at an angle up to the ceiling, disappearing before it hit it. I wasn't scared, just shocked that I had seen it so clearly because I never am able to watch them like that. It always happens so quickly that I barely see them. I knew that it wasn't dust because it was so big and it was moving upward. My room is in the middle of the house and I don't have fan so it wasn't anything getting blown around.

I am very interested in what everyone has to say and if anyone else has had similar experiences.

Thanks for reading. I will be posting more of my experiences later.

I disagree with you shell1982 those did not sound like floater in the eye as floaters do not have any definable shape.

If you think you are seeing orbs then why not take some pictures with actual film and see if anything shows up in them. Sometime orbs do show up on film it would confirm your theory so you can learn more about them.

I would get your eyes tested in case it is floaters in your eyes or something similar. Mention to optician what you are seeing. The way you describe the movement of these objects and the fact you can't look directly at them sounds a lot like floaters (bits of protein floating around in the jelly of your eyeball). X

Hi zalxmoon, this is interesting what you have said you are experiencing, as I myself have been experiencing the same for years. Like yourself they have never scared me but I did take advice about what was happening to me from a very experienced member on here. The only colour of orbs I see is a pale yellow/cream. If you see different coloured orbs around people, Rook explained to me it could be their auras you are seeing, but if you see different colours on your own, I am not sure. I see them when I'm on my own and in the presence of others, I don't just see them in my home I see them other places too, but mostly around other people when I am having a conversation with them. The orbs kind of appear, shoot off above the persons head. They will be spirits that have not manifested fully, it could be people close to you whom have passed away. I was told if I wanted to find out more on my own to try an EPV session, just use the recorder on your phone. Make sure you are on your own, be relaxed and calm and ask questions such as "do you know I can see you?", "were you once alive?" "can you tell me your name?". Please only do the EPV only if you feel comfortable, also I was told just communicating in this way and asking questions would not invite anything negative, that was the most important thing I wanted to know. Let us know what you think, other members I am sure will have some good advice for you too x
