What is an Orb?

Recently a friend from Florida sent me a photo of an orb that appeared in a photo taken outside his house. What's interesting is that he's had paranormal activity in his house -including footsteps, movement of doors and objects, and he's seen shadow figures. So, I sent the photo to the Inspired Ghost Trackers of Maryland to analyze it.
   That leads me to this week's blog: What is an orb? 
Wikipedia says: Orb (optics), an unexpected, often circular photographic artifact
- I've noticed orbs appear in photos whenever I'm sensing a ghost. Orbs are a simple form of light, and may or may not be the entity.
  There were several instances when orbs have appeared in photos when I sense a ghost nearby. In Riversdale Mansion, Riverdale, Md. I sensed a woman and a little girl in a large room. At the time, one of the members from Inspired Ghost Trackers was taking photos, and in one of them, several orbs appeared in front of a window.
  During a private investigation, I sensed a lot of emotional energy and distress in a furnace room that turned out to be where two women were murdered. In a follow-up investigation days later, an orb appeared with the face of a woman behind it! (It will be in my 2nd book coming later in 2012 called "Lessons Learned from the Dead.").
   So, what do others say about orbs? 
Orbs appear in Riversdale Mansion room when I sensed 2 ghosts.
Dave Juliano of Shadowland.net, a ghost hunter, defines an Orb this way: The orb is the energy being transferred from a source (i.e. powerlines, heat energy, batteries, people, etc) to the spirit so they can manifest.   This may not even be a conscious thing the spirit is doing, just a natural way they get their energy.  This would explain why the orbs are round balls.  According to the laws of Physics energy being transferring like that would assume is natural shape of a sphere.   This theory can also be tied into the EMF readings we get during spirit activity. Source: http://theshadowlands.net/ghost/orbs.htm
   Dave brings up a good point about Camera Processing errors: The digital cameras can't have film-processing errors.  I am aware that some people feel that the orbs on a digital camera are an error in the digital processing of the image.  When that error does occur in digital photos, the objects tend to be square in nature, not round and they cannot be semi-transparent, the pixel behind would have to be corrupted also.

  1. We set up a camera in our home, set to record only whenever there is motion. At 5:15am this morning (it was still dark in our home) the camera began recording and it was a moving orb.... nothing but the orb - not my dogs, nothing else. I am at a total loss for words and would greatly appreciate your input. I had been hearing doors open and shut around this very time, which is why we set the camera up initially. Thanks so much.

    1. Motion detector cameras can sometimes be triggered if there's a vehicle moving by, or if there's an insect or piece of dust large enough to set it off. However, if you've been hearing doors open and close the orb you saw may be tied to an Earth bound ghost or spirit. If this hasn't happened until recently, it may be a spirit of a loved one that passed and has come to give you a message that they're still around you. Does 5:15 am mean anything to you- in terms of someone's passing? or even May 15th for a passing, birthday or anniversary? spirits work with numbers in strange ways. =- If this helps you pinpoint who it is, talk with them and tell them not to wake you in the mornings and that you get the message. - Another thing to do is watch your dogs to see if they are "looking" at an empty space. They can see ghosts and spirits - and when they do stare at "nothing" take the time to talk with the entity and tell it to please leave, and that this is your home.

    1. Eddie-Good eye. Yes, I also saw the three orbs in that photo. As it turned out although I only heard the loudest 2 ghosts at the time of the photo, the third one was a little boy who made himself known when I went upstairs in the historic home to what was his bedroom. So he was in the room with his mother and sister when this photo was taken, but I couldn't hear him!

    1. Alicia- I apologize for the delay in responding. Cats and dogs have the ability to see ghosts and spirits, so it's no surprise that your cat may have been watching one. I don't think that you have anything to worry about. It's very likely your grandmother or a great grandmother figure stopping by to check on you and let you know that they're looking out for you. They're there to help you through some difficult decisions that you're facing in the upcoming year and want you to be at peace that you have help from the other side. When you go to sleep, ask whichever grandmotherly figure you think it may be to come to you in your dreams and let you know who they are. They're there to help you.
