Something Observed On Cctv


Hello again, I wanted to relate another experience that happened to me in the hospital I currently work at.

This event took place about 3-4 years ago; we have CCTV cameras through out the facility and I was working in the office monitoring them. It was after midnight (I was on the late shift then) and on the Labor&Delivery floor I noticed a small white blob (?), it wasn't round like an orb, in one of the hallways. At first I didn't think anything of it. I thought it was a cob web in the camera housing until it started playing.

I watched it, for lack of a more descriptive term, "dance" around people as they made their way up and down the hall. It would bounce around on the people's heads/shoulders and fly from one side of the hall to the other.

I called my supervisor and showed it to him. He went and cleaned the housing for the camera and the camera but it was still there. It really liked my supervisor-it danced all over his head and followed him the entire length of the hallway. Some people it would shy away from, hiding near the ceiling or going through a wall but others would have a happy little visitor hovering around them-too bad they couldn't see it for themselves.

He/She stayed with us for several weeks then one day, it just wasn't there. Where ever he/she is I hope he/she is still dancing and having fun. Thanks for reading.

God bless.

Hi scrapmetalkitten,
Yeah it would have been nice to have gotten the footage from the hospital but they wouldn't let me make a copy of the tape. It did give all of the officers something to smile at while it visited us though. 😊

Lovely story. That would have been really neat to see. Too bad it happened in a hospital though, because of the HIPAA act I'm sure the hospital doesn't want to get sued over the videotape being shown to the public. Too bad they can't blur out people's faces completely so they remain anonymous and say it is an anonymous hospital that would make some really good footage and I bet they would show it on tv if it was as spectacular as you said it was.

That would have been a fun sight to see. I'm like you, I rather think that its a soul, waiting to be born, with as playful as you say it was.

Hi everyone, thanks for all your comments.

Welcome lilblackpom. I look forward to reading your story.😁

Biemaster we had several tapes of the dancing spirit but unfortunitly the HIPPA Act prevented me from being able to get a copy of any of them. 😒

I'm of the opinion that he/she (I don't like calling him/her an "it") was visiting to choose a family; even though NICU is on the same floor I like the more optimistic school of thought. 😁

God bless.

Loved this story Jmak. I believe this could be as Bellissima says, a very happy spirit waiting to cross into and be within our existence. I would like to believe this could be true. Thanks for sharing your wonderful experience with us.

I am a new visitor to this site and so happy to find it. Did not know this website existed! Hopefully my story will get published so you may read it also. It was recently submitted. But your story is a very joyful one! Thank you Jmak. 😊

I would hope it wasn't a child caught between worlds. I hope it was waiting to be born or ready to cross over. Maybe it was just visiting his or her's destination point and was waiting for it's parents to make their debut. Many people think the spirit enters the body of a person with it's first breath. Some believe the spirit is there from conception. Some think we choose our parents and our earthly journey while others think it's all perchance. Don't know who is right.I'm just glad I got a chance to see this world and I hope my spirit has progressed because of it. Sounds like this spirit was ready to take on life.

Hmmmm...I'm kind of torn between Bellissima and rhodes68's idea of what you saw. I will have to think on this one for awhile. Thank you for sharing your experience with us, I enjoyed reading it. Take Care.

Hmmm playful spirit... You said you saw it on the 'Labor & Delivery' floor... So maybe it was a spirit of a child who either died or was yet to be born!...And he was just playing around like any kid does!...That's what I think😊

Hey Jmak and thanks for the weird yet funny experience!

I agree with Bellissima fully that the fact that the blob was in the labor and delivery floor was a bit strange. It might be that the blob was "choosing" its parents by dancing around the good parents and hiding from the bad parents. It is merely a guess but I think it is likely. Do you have the video footage of that? If you do, it would be AWESOME to see it! Thanks a bunch and keep us updated!

Thanks all for your comments, the spirit stayed with us for a month and a half. He/she seemed drawn to smaller families "dancing" around whichever parent went to get the infant from the nursery as well as on the bacenet. It made the long nights there a lot more joyfull. It seemed like every officer on the shift had to watch him/her on the camera sometime during the shift.

Dear Jmak,

It sounds as if you have a playful spirit. Although, since the spirit was playful I wonder why it has not crossed yet. Do you think the flying orb was just a "visiting spirit"?

Thank you again for posting the story. God bless and deus vobiscum.

Hi Jmak.Hmm...Labor and Delivery floor you say? I had the thought that maybe you had a little spirit looking for the right parents to be born to. Rather than crossing over and away, it was waiting to cross into and be within our existence. I like the idea. Thanks for sharing your story, I enjoyed it.

Thank you for a beautiful story jmak. I'm happy you no longer see the orb since that may mean that the spirit has crossed.

Well, it must have been a happy person in life to be such a joyful energy after its physical death. Lets hope that he/she has lived a complete and meaningful life on this earth!
