Wandering Orb Then Wife's Bad Dream 2016


We moved to Idaho from Hawaii and ultimately moved into an older 3rd floor apartment (2 BR, 1 BA) It had a great view of a creek and a river beyond that out the back windows. We were out looking, and found an amazing view lot across town, which we ended up purchasing. We were very happy and looking for a builder. I found a low paying job and we were just living and enjoying the bike paths and parks along the river's greenbelt.

One early morning, I was laying awake, as most mornings between 2:00 to 3:30 a.m. I was looking at the clock, and had to lie still because if I wake our Yorkie, he will bolt to end of bed and start biting my feet while barking and would wake my wife (little jerk). Anyway, we had a large King bed in a small room, so the door was very close to the end of the bed and to the right of my feet. The door is open and against the far wall we have little plug-in lights, so the living room and this doorway was kind of lit up. There was a flood light below our bedroom window outside, with slight light coming from sides of curtains above our head board.

I usually try to fall back to sleep, counting marbles, ducks, salmon, and calming things. I don't count sheep and I don't want to get a song stuck in my head. I was laying on my right side looking at the door opening and saw what looked like a very small Orb come around the door jamb at the doorknob area. It was moving very slowly and was about the size of a golf ball, about 6 feet from my head now, coming along the wall towards my head. Not really thinking, just watching it. It wasn't bright, like Orbs I have caught on my camera or when filming. It was almost a vanilla color (looked old?) less than 3 feet away against wall in front of my face now. I did not move and watched it. It looked dull in a small area top front of the Orb, like it was missing some of its shine (glitter, damaged?), and I watched it go past my head heading to the corner.

After that, I was heavy in thought and started questioning my sanity and started trying to debunk it - on the 3rd floor, could be car lights? But Orb was lower than the window and curtains were closed. Eye booger floating sideways? (Both eyes? Probably not). Would it have been brighter if room was darker? Did my imagination conjure this thing up? Half my life, I have been a very early riser and have never seen a little orb.

I can't honestly say how long I laid there - many minutes? - when all of a sudden my wife started stammering, along with heavy breathing. She was in a high-pitched verbal fight and her words were not understandable. Sounded like she was in trouble, and she yelled something high-pitched, stuttering and rambling. I yelled her name while rolling over to her to grab her and shake her awake. She tells me that a man was chasing her as a child and he was not a good man, and he was very scary. By the time she awoke later that morning, she had forgotten most of it. I found it strange that she had a nightmare within minutes of my seeing the Orb, and the timing of both had me wondering about Orbs getting in and being a part of our dreams.

In my present home, at the beginning of 2021, I had a crazy dream of an approximately 6" Orb of a dark-haired man (40ish?) his face filled the whole orb that was behind me at head level, chasing me from my garage into our laundry room and into the hallway landing, then into our bedroom (a strait shot) and telling me all the while to hurt (like hit) my wife. I was yelling at him NO, NO, I'M NOT GOING TO DO IT. I woke my wife and myself up from yelling at it. WTH?!

Thanks for reading. Good Luck out there. (Edited by Wife) Please only positive feedback.

Hello cantunSEEit,

I can resonate with your story, I had a similar experience around 5 years ago with my wife making the same noises however it wasn't an Orb, it was more like a small mist. It startled me that much I went into fight mode swinging away it with my pillow lmao... I shouldn't make light of it however, in the heat of the moment It just felt like the only thing I could do.

It slowly moved away from my wife across the wall of our room with me still swinging at it like a maniac. Post maniac injury assessment, I think I pulled out muscles I never knew I had up and down my back and legs to keep it away from her. My wife then woke up thinking it was me having the nightmare yelling out my name and asking me to wake up... Counting sheep some half an hour later something or someone flicked me in the back of the ear? So I guess what ever it was, it didn't enjoy the pillow fight,lmao. Geezus, what can you do but laugh right? Anyway,

Can orbs, mist etc enter into our dreams? They probably can if we are in the right phase of sleeping state however, if an energy of consciousness gets into our own space of consciousness we can transcribe the sensation physically and that feeling can feel quite uncomfortable. I have experienced that sensation in a waking state a few times and it's not a nice feeling.

Regards Daz!

MrsRamsay, I hope you are well. Positive feedback-this story has 2 dreams in it. I know this is not a dream site, but thought butthead orb guy was pertinent to our story and hope no one gets irritated with us going off-script of YGS. We moved from mirror home early 2014 and have since lived in 5 different places. We have sold a couple of homes and bought a couple. Not bragging, the moving around might cause some confusion with my stories. We bought a view lot, had custom home built, and lived in it for 2 1/2 years. Due to Covid concerns, we sold it in Summer of 2020, bought this smaller home with RV parking and now I'm retired. We have our first garden growing, have made our front and back yards our oasis of flowers, with bird feeders, and watching the squirrels, pigeons, and a mouse picking up what's fallen is entertaining. If we have a nightmare we make sure to talk about it right then, so in the morning we can remember the visit. I love the orb with arm around you. In my opinion, in death you go outwards not upwards. I have 1 last story left and I will be current. I finally filled in the Bio on this site. Take care! Wife edited.

I just realized something after I posted. I have a photo of a man's face in an orb. Am pretty certain it's my deceased husband who was tagging along for our tour of the Marine Corps Museum when it first opened in Virginia. We stopped to take a family photo outside and I remember initially being so disappointed that the photo turned out so blurry. A couple years later, when I realized I could see paranormal type things in photos, I saw the orb resting on my head (which I initially thought was a twinkling light of the building behind me) and a partially formed arm sort of around my neck. If you look real close, you can see the face in the orb. Not scary though, just a loved one.

Oh my, you ask for positive feedback? I always enjoy your posts (edited by your kind wife).

I'm laughing in delight at specifically two points in your story yet cringing at the rest, it's really scary. First, trying not to get a song stuck in your head just cracked me up. When I wake at night to use the bathroom (sometimes a couple times if I couldn't hydrate until evening, tmi, sorry) I almost always have some random song in my head. I think I count it as a blessing though. Because if I focus on that, I can't notice other things. Like orbs. Or men's faces in orbs. OMG, scary. And the dreams, yes, scary too. I have told my husband I think that the songs in my head at night is a coping method I've had since young, same as when I wake up at night I rarely look around or even up, I look down while walking to the bathroom and try not to see. I'm 60 and never even realized I do that until just a few years ago.

Oh, the second funny thing: eye booger. If the bad man ever attempts to scare either of you again, you should call him out as an "eye booger." Tell him to get away from you, please, he should not be there. Good luck with your insomnia, in all seriousness. I have also had similar dreams, mostly when I started living in this house, never really before. It gets scary when your kid tells you about a dream that is almost the same. I still have not figured out what to do about these strange dreams, which are very infrequent, so am looking forward to reading the advice you get. PS is this a different house than the one with the mirrors? I might've missed that part.

Rajine I have had only 2 spirit crossings in Idaho in over 5 years. This one was in large apt complex. I feel this orb was a local wanderer. But will never know. I've had 1 crossing in this home been here 10 months. Don't believe I have a follower. Take care. 😊

Hi cantunSEEit

Scary but interesting experience you had, do you think perhaps whatever it was followed you to your present home?
