Spirit Orbs – Spirits in Your Photographs

Spirit Orbs in Egypt

Spirit orbs are balls of energy that show up in some of your photographs. Some people think that this is a spirit and other people say it’s just a speck of dust reflecting light. Have you ever seen spirit orbs in your photos? What does it mean if you see them around one person in particular?

According to some websites, you can create the right conditions for orbs to be captured. They do this with small dust particles or water droplets that are put into the atmosphere as the picture is being taken.

Are the orbs in your photos dust? Maybe. But then again, maybe not. Consider the following.

Spirit Orbs Close Up

Spirit has an easier time working with electrical items. Your stereo, phone, computer, and digital camera. I think it has to do with frequencies and their resonance being either easily manipulated by spirit, or maybe they can change their vibrational frequencies to match.

My friend’s son decided he wanted to capture his spirit guide on camera. He asked his spirit guide to sit on the couch, and then he snapped a picture with his digital camera. There was an orb hovering right above the couch cushions, just like his guide was sitting there posing!

In many pictures of spiritual places – Mount Shasta, tombs in Egypt, stone circles in England, churches – there are many, many orbs in one picture. Is this because there are so many spirits attracted to these sites? Or are they all full of “dust and water particles”?

In one house clearing, I felt a spirit following me as I walked through the house. It was as if she was seeing what I was doing and waiting until I got to one particular room that was meaningful to her (where we crossed her).

As I snapped photos in the house, I could see most of them had an orb in them. Not more than one, but just one. Is it likely that most of the rooms had one speck of dust that showed up or is this the spirit of the woman?

Sometimes people ask me why spirit would show up as a round ball of energy rather than in full form. I think it’s because this is closer to their natural state. Or it could be that it’s easier for them to manifest in this state rather than form a full figure. I really don’t know.

Spirit orbs can be of varying colours – blue, white, pink, etc. Sometime people see geometrical patterns or what may look like faces in the orbs when they magnify the photo on their computer screen.

It also seems that these orbs may show up around a particular person in several photos. If this is a spirit, then it’s likely that the spirit is associated with them (family member or guide) or is attracted to them for a particular reason.

Whether they are all spirit orbs or if it’s really dust or water reflection, I’ll leave up to you. I’ve seen and felt too many things on the energetic level for me to believe that they are all dust particles. I believe that spirit shows itself to us in many ways using the technology at hand.

    What about orbs flashing around on video? When there are many, does it mean many spirits or just the one? I have taken many videos with only light from camera and they seem to be having a party with me watching!

  • admin May 30, 2012, 3:33 am

    I haven’t had the opportunity to see orbs flashing around on video! Lucky you for capturing them! One orb is considered to be one spirit, so if you have many orbs, there are many spirits. I love your comment about them having a party with you. Who knows? Maybe they are!

  • Megan December 3, 2012, 11:14 am

    After my family had a reading with Selina last week over the phone I have embraced my spirituality. Selina was able to contact my grandfather who recently passed. It was a beautiful experience, I now know he is at peace and is just fine. So since this, I have read many of the blog articles on here and this one in particular caught my interest. I have gone through old pictures and found that orbs are evident in a few. 🙂 Today was my second day contacting my spirit guide. I asked for them to sit on the couch so I could take a picture just like mentioned in this article above and it worked! I am so happy to be embracing this. Thank you Selina for having such a great website!! 🙂 If any one would like to see my photo’s I can email them to you. I do not have a website or know how to post them here 🙁 megangrant21@gmail.com

  • admin December 4, 2012, 8:12 am

    Hi Megan,

    Thank you for such kind words! I am so happy that what came through helped. I would love to see that picture of your spirit guide. I think I can post it for you so if you would like to send it me I’ll see what I can figure out.

    All the best,

  • koren bellman February 14, 2013, 10:53 am

    Hi, before my brother passed i took a photo and a white out space showed beside him in the photo as well as a gold and white light further behind him with less a defined outline. i think the white in my brothers photo was a guardian angel and perhaps the more white gold with less defined edges was a reflection from the white cutout guardian? perhaps?

    it is still recent since he died and i just took a photo of myself. in it is a very pink horse looking light near the ceiling which showed up? what would this pink horse looking light in the air around me be?

  • Bla February 19, 2013, 11:01 am

    I have those in all my pictures! Every one. What’s that mean? I used to think it was my camera but then I got a new one and ya same thing. And they are not dust particles in one photograph one blocked out my entire face.

  • Tony Fitzpatrick February 28, 2013, 9:21 pm

    Hi. My partner and I stayed at the Coombe Abbey Hotel near Coventry UK last night (room 140) this part of the building dates back to 1150 with an array of history including involvement by Henry V111 and James 1, Guy Fawkes. After dinner and late evening I took some photos of the amazing room we had been given, the flash photos (on my mobile) showed numerous Orbs, one photo had 5. All sizes. Never in the same spot from photo to photo. My lens were clean. My partner loved the experience, she even tried to talk to them. I spent the rest of the night under the bed sheets, terrified. Your site certainly explains to me what its all about. Maybe as written above, they just wanted to party with us! Was fascinating though.

  • Beth Crysel March 16, 2013, 1:10 pm

    My grandmother died on Sunday, her funeral was Thursday, someone at the dinner after the funeral took a picture of My uncle, my aunt and her husband, there were so many orbs around them like crazy, especially the one right by my uncle, it is so bright white. I would love to share this picture with you and see what you would say. Please contact me if you are interested. My mom has so many questions to see if My grandmother was these orbs.

  • admin March 19, 2013, 10:25 pm

    Hi! I am sorry to hear about your brother. Yes, it was very likely a guardian angel or other type of being that would be a protector or guide. The pink horse image is interesting! Assuming it’s not light refraction, it could be the same thing. It could also be a message to you. If you can send it to me, and don’t mind it posted here, I’ll take a quick look.


  • Samantha April 13, 2013, 1:05 pm

    I would love to share the videos i captured with you so that maybe You can tell me if they are legitimate orbs or just dust.

  • admin April 13, 2013, 11:38 pm

    Hi Beth! Thank you for sharing the photo with us! First of all, there are many spirit orbs here and some are related, some are not. There is a very strong female presence on the right side just behind where everyone is standing. Also, the orb in the front which is bright feels like it’s posing for the picture – not a random placement. I agree with you – it does feel like a grandmother energy. Looks like you had a full family portrait!

    Here is Beth’s Family Photo that she sent me. It has tons of orbs!

  • admin April 14, 2013, 2:47 am

    Megan! It took a while but I can now post links to photos (couldn’t figure out how to include the photo here through commentluv!) Thank you for sharing these photos with us.

    You’ll see Megan’s Guide in orb form by the top left pillow. Here is Megan’s photo.

    There is also a close up of the orb. Megan feels her Guide’s name is Gabrielle. Can you see a female face in this orb? Take a look!

  • admin April 14, 2013, 3:11 am

    Sounds like you have a lot of spirits around you! Some people tend to attract this activity. This happens because they are either very supported by spirit, or they have a gift themselves and spirits are trying to contact them.

  • Sarah Bowers April 18, 2013, 3:57 am

    Here is Sarah’s photo. It’s an enlargement of the area she is referring to. I already replied to her privately. Now I’m asking you! What do you think? Is this a spirit? Please comment.

  • nadia May 31, 2013, 6:24 am

    That is really interesting. If these orbs are in all the photo you’ve ever taken, could you post a couple?! I would like to compare it to a photo of mine.

  • nadia May 31, 2013, 6:26 am

    I would especially like to see the photo where it covers your entire face. If you end up posting a photo in a link, could you share that one in particular?

  • admin June 13, 2013, 12:11 am

    Thanks for your comments! I don’t have any photos of orbs covering my face. Does anyone else out there have photos to share?

  • Kirstie July 15, 2013, 1:14 am

    My son has been very sick and we almost lost him a few months ago and since then when we take photos he has an extreme amount of haziness. What could this be? Could I send the photos they are very odd.

  • John Jardine July 19, 2013, 10:47 pm

    Last night, 18 July 2013, as I sat on the front porch of our ranch house with our Granddaughter, my wife took several pictures of her using a good quality flash camera. In several of the pictures (not all of them) there were as many as a dozen plus orbs of varing sizes and colors ranging from almost transparent to bright blue and even pink. Some of these orbs were in the background while others were within a few inches of my Grandaughter. Our ranch is located a good 10 miles from any known cemetary. Although I have heard about orbs, this is my first time seeing them. I do not think this was a dust partical anomoly as the orbs only appeared in about 4 of the dozen or so pictures that were taken. We all found this very interesting.

  • admin July 20, 2013, 5:39 am

    Hi John,

    Thanks for the comment! I love that there are different colours in the orbs. Contrary to popular belief, spirits do not tend to hang out in cemeteries. (Why hang out in a cemetery when you can go visit all the people you love and there is so much to do in other realms?) That’s why I like to walk there in particular – because it is so quiet.


  • nancy July 27, 2013, 11:35 am

    My husband and I were going through some pictures that we took last fall in the park on our bikes came apone one picture with my son myself and my daughter.my husband took a couple of pictures of us standing with our bikes,in the first two pictures you see a white light moving towards my daughter the last picture my daughters face looked like an old women her eyebrows were white and her hair,also her face looked old.It sends shivers down my spine,please if you know what this means let me know.

  • admin July 31, 2013, 7:34 am

    Hi Nancy,

    Thanks for your comment! Sounds like you’ve captured a spirit in your picture. Probably a family member in spirit or someone who is watching over her. Have you tried enlarging the photo to see if you recognize the face? Many people believe that spirit orbs are a form that spirits take to travel as it is easier for them. Many people see faces in some of the orbs, although geometrical shapes are more common.


  • admin July 31, 2013, 7:38 am

    Not sure – I’d have to see them. Could be his aura you are picking up. When people have a hazy or film in their auras, it could indicate sickness. Some psychics see this when a person is not so love and light, has an illness, or does drugs.

  • Kas August 9, 2013, 10:36 am

    On a cloudy day about 2 weeks ago, the sun came out for a minute and I took a picture of it to lure my sister to my pool so we could hang out…..it worked, LOL. She died in her sleep last week (at 40). I noticed tonight there is an orb quite a bit lower than the sun, hovering over my house. Was this a sign or something? If you need to see it, I will send it to you.

  • Katherine August 11, 2013, 12:01 pm

    Yes, I do believe this is a picture of a spirit.

  • Troy August 31, 2013, 3:44 pm

    I have recently began capturing orbs in pictures where I am currently staying. Some are inside the house and others are outside. I don’t know why I am capturing them now and it frightens me to be honest. My wife and I stayed at an historic hotel in downtown San Antonio called the Menger Hotel which was built next to the Alamo. Its reported to have anywhere from 30 to 40 entities depending on differnt reports. It all started then July 24, 2013 when for fun we downloaded a iphone application that automatically snaps a picture when it detects anomalies in the area. Well I didnt really believe that it was really a “ghost capturing instrument” However, it works because everyday since then I have captured orbs, what appears to be light refraction or electric charges, and shadow like shapes.
    I lost my brother in February and I am still dealing with his death. We were only 11 months apart in age. He was 48 and I am 49. We worked together off and on for many years, lived in same city with mutual friends and were each others best friend. Im trying to see if there is a correlation with these orbs and my brother? Are they trying to give me a message? I am having a hard time trying to figure out what it is I should do? I am confused and a little weary. Any advice would be of great help. Also could I share a few of my pictures with you. They too have pictures of people in them.
    Thanks, Troy

  • admin September 4, 2013, 4:23 am

    Hi Troy,

    I’m sorry to hear about your brother’s passing. You may be attracting more of these orbs because of what you are going through recently with your emotions. We are always supported but in times like you are experiencing, spirit tends to help and come around a little more than usual. It is not unlikely that your brother is visiting and indeed may be one of these orbs.

    As to what to do? You can take comfort that his spirit is around and if you like, you can speak to him knowing that he can hear you (you don’t need to do this outloud – in your mind is fine).

    There were orbs before the app, and there will continue to be orbs after the app. We are going through a planetary change where you will notice more and more activity. It’s just that now you are aware of them as you can capture them on your phone.

    I would love if you can share a couple of pictures with us. Thank you for your comment and all the best,

  • Charles October 31, 2013, 2:12 am

    One day I had taken a picture of what I believe is a spirit guide’s orb .I personally believe in the spirit word.it is a white streak .

    I just took a picture of my boyfriend and an orb appeared on his arm with a face on it? It seems like a sad face, we got very scared. We took a few pictures and the orb only appears in one!

  • paulatroy09@gmail.com November 18, 2013, 6:50 am

    hi we have just moved into a house a few months back.we had alot of hassle from my husbands uncle in our old home so he bought it and we left and moved into a pub. we were friends with the owner and he died a few years back. we are ll under alot of stress with bills n are missing home. i started taking pictures in the pub part of the house and there is alot of orbs some blue one orange big and small in alot of the pictures especially the ones with the children. there is alot of work to be done and we find it alot of stress to try and do it with no money. why are we seeing these circles do they want to harm us or are they trying to comfort us

  • Elsie December 7, 2013, 4:05 am

    I find it very interesting reading up on other peoples comments on this website, it has given me more of a clue to what is happening in my photos too.

    My mum died when I was just 14, and 3 years later I have encountered myself having a delayed reaction to her death earlier this year. I find it unusual that since I have being vulnerable with my stress this year that I have noticed strange circular objects appearing behind me in my photos, some are greeny red, and some are just clear or bright.

    I thought I was going mad but I soon realized that these circular objects keep on reappearing in my photos… I seem to think I’m being watched or being followed. I can’t say I have ever picked such things up on my digital camera before until this year, and the proof is always behind me, or close to me. It has been a distressful time over the past few years for my dad, brother and myself; although it seems to be me and only me that these Orbs are being spotted :/ I really can’t justify why.

    I’d really appreciate it if I could be as kind to help me solve why they keep on reappearing in my photos (more and more) by each month, and if I’m honest.. I’m not one of the superstitious types but it can’t just be “Dust and water particles” if they keep on appearing in my photos like they do. Many thanks! 🙂 x

  • admin December 8, 2013, 12:15 am

    Hello Elsie, Thanks for your comments. I can think of two reasons why you are seeing more and more orbs in your photos. First, I have noticed that in the first while after a loved one has passed, they seem to come around the person grieving quite a lot. Then, after some time (which depends on when the person starts to feel less grief), I notice that the spirit still comes around, but just not as often. You can always ask them to come if you need them around, so it’s not like they aren’t available to you, but I do see that on their own, they tend to come by to check on you less.

    Secondly, it could be related to the increasing vibration rates of some of the population related to what is known in spiritual arenas as ascension. Right now, the earth’s vibrations are lifting and we are also being opened up as part of our combined ascension process. So it could be that the spirit orbs are more manifest to us.

    Either way, looks like someone wants you to know that they are there with you!

    Thank you for sharing this with us.

    All the best,

  • admin December 8, 2013, 12:18 am

    Hi, Sorry for the late reply. I would doubt that they are trying to harm you. If you are sensitive to the energy, you’ll be able to tell by the way you feel about that energy. If you are scared, then you won’t be able to feel past your own fear. My gut feel is that you are okay. Selina

  • admin December 11, 2013, 9:40 pm

    Hi Yuri, Maybe spirit photobombed your picture? LOL! Seriously though, it could be spirit showing itself. It wouldn’t be the first photo like that I’ve seen. Selina

  • Yuri December 11, 2013, 5:47 pm

    I’m not one to have let or have pictures taken of me but I do like to take pictures of my family. I’ve taken pictures with different cameras and have noticed spirit orbs appear many times. This past weekend we celebrsted my little sisters 15th birthday party. I took pictures of my little sister, my mom, and my husband getting ready in my apartment and noticed orbs in some pictures with all 3 of them. Then getting to reception a photographer took our pictures all came out so nice. But on one that was taken of me and my husband the picture came out but on my side of the picture was white from the top to bottom and you could barley make out my face what would that mean? I’ve always been intrigued with spirit world and do believe in all life continues even after your gone.

  • Elizabeth December 24, 2013, 1:39 pm

    I recently saw myself in a picture with several other people and after my irritation wore of (I don’t like having my picture taken lol), I noticed all of these orbs around me. I even saw one near my heart center. One floating way, way above my head as well. There were two of these pictures taken and besides an orb around one other woman, I saw them around me, big and small. I was both surprised and not because I see Angel lights all of the time (different colored sparkles that show up randomly), and I can feel the presence of my Angels and guides when I call them. Sometimes I even see really, really tiny feathers floating in front of me. But seeing those orbs surrounding me in that picture was more… proof for me, you could say! I said to myself, oops, my spirituality is showing.

  • Katelyn December 29, 2013, 1:24 pm

    So my mom passed away 5 years ago from cancer I was only 11 well we took her on many trips and took lots of pictures like at the beach and at the mountains well we saw these pink orange orbs and figures of course it had to of been an guardian angel well I’m 16 now and over the summer my uncle had taken a pic of me and months later realized there was a white figure that looked like a woman beside me and we figured it may of been the light from the window or the camera but I still felt like it was my mom just last night I was back over at my aunt and uncles house and he took a pic of me and my aunt off guard and the white figures were back and this is with a different phone and camera well we went back and looked at one of the same photos that my aunt had taken with the first pic and then looked at the one my uncle took and its the same picture in the same room and same position and in one pic the figure is there and in the other it is not. I really need opinions on what to think and is there anyway I could upload the pic on here for you to see?? Its pretty amazing! And this is all true I have not edited it or anything!! I swear in my life!

    Thanks! Looking forward to seeing it!

  • Denise January 5, 2014, 10:54 am

    Hi Selina,

    My 2 year old son was diagnosed with cancer in February. It’s been the most difficult time I ever thought possible for me and my family. The whole first year of his life, I would watch him on his monitor and saw nothing. Then, when he got sick, we would see white orbs flying around his room. Some are dull and some are very bright. One actually got larger as it came closer to the monitor. Our hope is that these lights are here to help him heal from this disease. Thank you for having this site. You seem like a very special person.

  • navan lopez January 6, 2014, 8:11 am

    I have capture so many orbs in different size and it travel from different direction and some dissipear into the wall and ceiling. I took the video in my bedroom with my phone’ and some of the orbs come in differant color as well. I also capture orbs in small an big and some move slower than other and a few move in full speed, some of the footage I capture of the Orbs was on the floor and on the wall. I am cambodian, In my religious, we believe in spirit and recarnation. I believed my ancesters and grandparent pay a visit to us. I am thrill and happy to capture the amazing Orbs in my phone, I am not scare or afraid because they are there for a reason and that is to protect us.

  • admin January 7, 2014, 5:07 am

    Hi Denise, I can’t imagine what you and your family have been going through. Children tend to have at least one strong spirit that watches over them in a special way. I’m sure that during this time, there is much help for all of you in the spirit world. I’ll put you and your family in my prayers.

  • Melissa January 17, 2014, 5:10 am

    Last night, while videotaping our 18 month old granddaughter dancing in our living room, there were orbs flying in and out of the video, some light and some very bright and evident. The orbs seem to love being around the young people in our life. I don’t recall ever seeing orbs in any photos or videos (and I have taken LOTS) in the 20 years we lived in our house until AFTER my parents and my husband’s parents died. My husband’s father, mother and my mother all died within a 9 month span. My father had died 4 years prior to that. I am convinced that the orbs are the spirits of our parents who love being around our kids and grandkids. The orbs really started to show up last Thanksgiving when all my grandchildren were together for the first time. I consider them a blessing.

    So my daughter and friend was at a basketball game today,and they took a picture and a whole body with a clear face appeared in the picture on her friends face…I need help on trying to explain it to her because idk what to say….HELP ANYBODY

  • admin March 7, 2014, 8:29 am

    Hi Nicole,

    Without being able to see the picture, I can only give you what I think is going on. Have you ever heard of something called transfiguration? It’s when spirit shows itself as an overlay on someone else. Sometimes it can happen when channelling a spirit through you, but it can also happen just over the the person too without channelling the spirit. Usually just the face transfigures although it is not unheard of for part of the body to transfigure as well. It’s really just ectoplasm or energy from spirit that they manifest in order to show themselves. As I say, that’s my best guess. By the way, if this is what is going on, it was just for that moment and not something permanent with your daughter’s friend.


  • Donna Zibull March 11, 2014, 3:10 am

    My grandson 15 passed away on 1/8/2014. Going thru Christmas photos, taken only 7 days before he had a sudden and fatal asthma attack, their were Orbs all around only him in the photo’s? Why did they appear Before his Death? In a photo outside in the snow, there is a streak of light and ghostly appearance next to him. His name was Orian and we live just 100 miles from Mt. Shasta- where my ancestors are from. We feel like he was Chosen- but why him! His great-grandparents are in their middle 80’s & in ill health, but are hanging on.

  • Barb March 13, 2014, 5:16 am

    My sister and I were down at the beach late one evening. We both felt as if there was a presence with us. I took out my cell phone and snapped a few pictures… Nothing. Then I said aloud “if there is anyone here with us, please stand beside my sister while I take a picture” Sure enough it appeared. It was a long spine-shaped light. I’ve been trying to search for the name of this particular anomaly. Would you happen to know what it is? If you need to see the pic, let me know.

  • admin March 13, 2014, 7:51 am

    Hi Donna,

    I am so sorry to hear about your grandson passing away at such a young age. I know that spirit tends to support us more during the time just before our passing. I believe that they not only help us with the actual transition, but also help to prepare our energy. Perhaps that is why your grandson had so many orbs around him before he passed.

    You say that he was chosen, and indeed he may have been. This probably would have been decided before he incarnated. We understand a little about the other side and why these things happen, but really, in this vast and complex universe, we can only trust that there is a Divine Plan as our human understanding is limited at this time.

    I wish you peace.

    If you have a photo to share for the orb gallery, please email it to me. My email address is under contacts. A jpg is best. Also, you must have permission from all people shown in the photo that it’s okay to be posted. If you want the faces blocked out, I can do that through photoshop, but I will not touch any other part of the photo.

    ive had a few strange happenings in my life.the first one i thought was a dream for over 25 years untill a few months ago i was talking to my brother and said the same. It was on a walk with family as kids,we spotted an old broken down house just off the path in a woods. We went in to have a look and there was a big black dog in the corner with a black pot behind it. We tried to get around it but it would not let us get near the pot. About five years later at home in my cabin bed,my bed room door slowly opened and the same big black dog walked in.with a blink of the eye it was gone. That was it for a long time,untill at secondary school a friend and i were being silly with a wejie board in the woods when a directed gust of wind came towards us rattling the bushes as it got closer. It was like something/someone was heading for us. We both just left the board and ran away. Then a few months ago at a friends house,they were trying to contact spirits(i stayed out of the circle after my last scare) they were taking photos of everyone and the room but the only orbs were around me,in more than one photo. Is this a good or bad sign?

    I have recently started to be intouch with my spiritual side, and more or less accepting that on more than one occasion I have had some pretty awesome experiences that not many people get to. I had lost my father at the age of 12, and quite frequently feel his presence.
    This is a strange little story gor you…If I ever do something I’m not supposed to, a very strong spirit presence is felt… And I see a face, a face that looks like a light is right above their heads, so defined lines and ‘gaunt-ness’ is visible, and it appears to be of a green tone, like its a green light. however because I am always guilty of something when it appears I can never look directly at it, but I feel like it forced its face in face as if like I’m being told off, and this eyes, I can see this eye directly in front of mine, weather I close my own eyes tightly trying not to see it or just blatantly looking past it or away trying not to see it. This face always seems made, or disappointed depending what I am doing at the time or what I intend to do.

    Going off subject a little, a few days ago I was doing a guided meditation, wanting to meet one of my spirit guides. I had asked it to meet me in the meditation, along with my guardian for protection (as I was feeling a little scared) the meditation was unfortunately interrupted by me getting a fright by a noise that was unavoidable right as I was making vision with what seemed like could be a spirit guide… So unfortunately I lost the connection, and getting such a fright from the noise I didn’t feel up to it to try again that day.

    Now why I am originally writing, is because I’m a truck driver and work away, I like to send my boyfriend selfies of my self so he remembers what I look like. Last night when taking a few practise selfies trying to get a good one, I noticed one came out really strange looking and out of focus with strange colours and I was about to delete it. But I had to have a closer look. As I zoomed in I noticed how different each side of my face looked, and thought ‘eww yuck’ is that what I look like??? So I zoomed in even closer to one side…. NO! No that is not what I look like at all!!! That ‘yucky’ side if my face…. Is the face I see as described above… Colour and all…. And the eye… I can never forget that eye. Only difference is, is that it’s wearing my glasses…

    And in the other side of my ‘normal’ looking face, is covered by a purple haze, and in the purple haze, by my ear, I see what looks like an animated cal-like figure. With 2 eyes(the white cord cuts thru 1eye) and a big open mouth like its creeping out from behind my head laughing!!

    I can also see a hand stretch out palm up below my mouth heading over my shoulder…

    I’ve asked my boyfriend, and a close friend what they think. And they have said its just a bad lighting photo with glare…. But I feel strongly it’s more…. Have my guardian and spirit guide shown themselves anyway? It was just over 24 hours after I had asked to meet me, and I’m just not sure if my own head is messing with me.

    What do you think??

    How do I send you the pic?

  • Mary March 28, 2014, 10:50 am

    Hello. My mom passed in August of last year. Since then I have had 3 unexplained photos appear on my phone which I did not take. The first one looks cloudy but contains a woman’s face in the center with a bunch of faces surrounding it. The next two came just last week while I was at a park with my son. Appears as a bunch of circles but you can see faces in and around them. Can a spirit actually place pictures on your phone?

  • admin March 28, 2014, 9:54 pm

    Hi Guy,

    Sounds like you have had some pretty powerful experiences! A couple of possibilities about the dog. Either the dog was astral travelling, it’s spirit came to see you. Or perhaps this was a spirit coming as the dog. The dog spirit may be a guide for you. In any case, the dog doesn’t feel like a bad thing.

    As for Ouiji boards, I would suggest you not play with that. All sorts of lower vibrational spirits can use it. So you won’t know who you are calling in. If you want to work with spirits, develop yourself so your vibrations will connect with higher spirits – i.e. Spirit Guides, Angels, etc.

    As for the ritual with the circle, as your friends were in the circle if they did things correctly then they would be protected. Outside the circle there were likely spirits around and this is what you captured in the photo around you. Typically, orbs are not a bad sign, as you put it. They are just spirit around you in a spherical form.

    Please be careful doing these types of rituals. If you or your friends don’t know what you are doing you can open portals and attract lower level vibrational spirits.

    All the best,

  • admin March 28, 2014, 9:58 pm

    Hi Mary,

    Yes it is possible. Spirit works with electronics very well. It must be something about the resonance of electrical equipment that makes it easier for them to manipulate. I have see many photos of spirit and ectoplasm. It is not uncommon. Most people capture orbs, but on occasion body forms, faces, or other images will appear.

    Take care,

  • admin March 28, 2014, 10:12 pm

    Hi Jana,

    Okay now that’s an interesting photo! I see the one you sent that has all the light streaming in. It looks like light, but I agree with you, it doesn’t feel exactly just light. And I can see the one face you are talking about on the side. I think that the light is just highlighting some of the energy that is coming around you. Looks like you have a couple of spirits playing with you. They feel familiar so I think one is a guide, the other one isn’t quite as strong but doesn’t feel bad. One feels male, one feels more female. It’s the male one that is coming through stronger.

    When spirit overlays their energy or ectoplasm as some people say, on top of you, it’s called transfiguration. When I teach my class on auras and we take turns sitting so people can practice, often we see spirit faces over the student faces. They aren’t possessed or anything, it’s just spirit showing themselves in this way.

    Thanks for sending the photos. Take care,

  • Toni daniels April 7, 2014, 11:53 am

    I no I am posting this rather late but in have just woken up to use the bathroom as I am currently pregnant I reached for my phone to use the light so I could see we’re I was going without realising I had set my phone on record as its recorded a video u have an orb on my phone it’s do clear it’s moving around my screen.. The past couple of days my cat has been acting really strange like somebody is petting him and he’s purring for no reason and its not like my cat. Also since my grandpa passed away when I was 16 I have always been very cold buts its only my left side which was the side he used to stand I am now 21 and wondering could this be him or am I just being stupid 🙂

  • admin April 7, 2014, 11:27 pm

    Hi Toni,

    You’ve caught an orb on video very clearly, already been able to sense your grandfather’s spirit, and your cat is acting as if someone is making him happy. I’d say you have a pretty strong case that there is spirit around. Interesting that you are also pregnant as I notice that spirit activity can increase around a pregnant woman or a baby. It’s family in spirit that is there to help and protect. So yes, I do feel that this could be your grandfather. The presence feels very loving.

    All the best,

  • Bernie April 19, 2014, 1:27 am

    Hi Selina,

    My wife and I have been taking photos of orbs in our house now for the past few months, since Thanksgiving, in fact. It all started when I captured 4 small ones in different areas of our dining room. They were all traveling together. Then, later that night, our daughter sent us a picture that her husband had taken while at our house. It is of me standing and above me was, well, not an orb, but a woman’s face. She appeared to be smiling. Again, not an orb, it was a real woman’s face. My wife thought it resembled her, but I think it looks like my mom, when she was younger (my mom passed in 2012).

    Anyway, something at the top of this thread, someone mentioned that it looked like the orbs were having a party with her. The video below, which I took last night, is in the same wheelhouse. Please check it out and let me know what you think. We have these orbs every night. You may have to add a hyperlink to open it. Thank you, Bernie


  • admin April 23, 2014, 4:37 am

    Hi Bernie,

    Sorry I’m having trouble opening the link. Can you send a still?


  • Bernie April 23, 2014, 6:42 am

    Hi Selina, I’m sorry, I’m having a hard time sending the video to other people also. I now have about 10 videos and the orb come out every night…many orbs. It is really quite amazing. I will work on this again Friday. I’d love for you to see it. I’ve had family come over too check it out. Everyone is in awe. We don’t know why they have chosen to come visit us but right now, we are enjoying it. They all seem to be good/happy orbs. Again, I will see what I can do to send this to you this Friday. Trust me, it’ll be worth the wait! Sincerely, Bernie P.S., if you have a Google account, click on the link in my previous post again, then sign in to Google when it prompts you. If you don’t have one, you should set one up, then click on the link, and follow the prompt. It’s worth the couple of minutes.

  • Bindi April 28, 2014, 12:13 pm

    Can you tell me if this is a orb?

  • admin April 29, 2014, 1:14 am

    Hi Bindi, You’ll need to send me the photo. Thanks, Selina

  • admin May 23, 2014, 5:16 am

    Hi! This is Selina. My apologies for not responding to everyone. Unfortunately something happened with wordpress and I missed out on a bunch of your comments. That is now resolved. Thank you for sending them!

    Also, although I would like to send every one of you a personal reply, I don’t always have time given my schedule with clients and teaching intuition classes. I do try my best and will continue to do so.

    Please continue to share your experiences with us! Just know there are others that get hope and comfort from knowing they are not alone with what they experience.

    I lost my son on 1/7/2012 He had suffered a long illness and was trying to raise 2 boys by himself. When I wen to the small town he lived in Havre MT I had to wait for his viewing for about an hour My husband and I went to a local café and went up stairs in this downtown mall to see the two little gift shop galleries. I found three paintings of spirit orbs. I felt it was a sign from my son. Havre MT is a small western town with not to many people that are into this type of spirituality. It really helped me with my grief. So I think spirt orbs can also be the loved ones who have crossed over

  • admin June 5, 2014, 4:09 am

    Hi Beth,

    I am sorry to hear about your son. Yes, you are right – spirit orbs can also be those we love you have crossed over. I`m glad to hear that your son gave you the sign you needed to know that he is around. It really does help with grief when we receive these signs.

    Thank you for sharing your story with us. Many blessing to you and your family.


  • La Shana June 12, 2014, 6:34 am

    My daughter’s father died in a car accident 6 months ago. Her preschool graduation was today. I took 40 pictures and only two pictures had orbs in them, both were of my daughter on stage receiving her certificate. The pictures I took of the other kids on stage from the same angle with the same lighting did not contain these orbs. I had to google it and came across this website and am glad I did as I would like to believe he was there with us in spirit.

  • pamela June 26, 2014, 11:01 pm

    I have a granddaughter who at certain times of the year when you take pictures of her she gets a green orb . Once it was all around her feet & momths later the same color orb was all around her shoulders . Its a very pretty color green

  • shane22 July 11, 2014, 1:15 am

    hi was at my mates 30th birthday party, took a photo and see an orb over my mates mum’s face, also her ex-partner passed away and she’s with a new partner who is also in the photo what does this mean?

  • admin July 11, 2014, 2:57 am

    Hi Shane,

    I feel that the ex-partner wanted to be seen in spirit and that’s why the orb (which is the way that spirit can take form when not communicating with us) put himself right front and center over your friend’s mother’s face. It’s just so she knows he is there in spirit.


  • leo bekman July 25, 2014, 5:02 am

    I took a video of bedroom from my lap top then when I was wathing I saw white small objects like a snowflakes flying around the room and some of them was fast changing directions I still have this video

  • Selina July 25, 2014, 5:50 am

    Hi Leo,

    If you want to share your video with us, I can post it on the Orb Gallery. Just send it to me and give me permission to post it.


  • Sherry Bent August 20, 2014, 2:57 am

    My husband was killed 10 months and 1 day to the date. It was very traumatic. I was ok at the beginning. But as time goes by I am finding it difficult day by day. More so each day that passes. I have been looking, begging and praying for a sign. Well something felt different one day in my house. I was alone but felt not alone and something was there. Just a strange sensation. I snapped pictures all through the house and came up with nothing. Snapped some more and came up with a pic which has a bright orb. I swear my cat is starring at it. Just two days ago I took more. Now I have several pictures in a matter of an hour multiple orbs. I swear I can see faces. But not my husbands. In a few I can see a lady. Not that I can recognize. Some orbs are small and some are big. Some are light. I have one that is bright. Very bright. Could someone please take a look at them and tell me what you think. On the first day I had a calming feeling I am sure my husband was there. My girls think I am crazy. They are trying to get me to see someone. I don’t think so. Help me please.

  • Selina August 20, 2014, 11:20 pm

    Hi Sherry,

    I’m so sorry to hear about your husband and the difficult time you’ve had in moving on. Sometimes the orbs that people capture in photos can be spirits connected to you, not connected to you, or guides. I’d have to see the photo to feel the energy.

    You can send the photo to me by email. If it’s okay to share with others on the blog photo gallery, please let me know.


  • Lindsey August 26, 2014, 9:56 pm

    Hi there my nan passed away 2 weeks ago from cancer, we were extremley close and i have been struggling without her…Ime and my fiance had a few drinks one night and decided to video the dark house, we got alot of footage, loads of orbs, floating feather type lights everywhere around me and my sleeping children. id like to think its nan, but im a little freaked out now 🙁 We also zoomed in to an orb and saw a female face that looked like my nan!! is our minds playing tricks??

  • Selina August 27, 2014, 11:15 pm

    Hi Lindsey,

    Sorry to hear about your Nan passing. Were your minds playing tricks? Probably not. Some feel stronger than others, and they all seem to be either neutral or loving. Try not to be too freaked out. They were all there before you saw them. Now that you know that you have spirit around you loving and supporting you, maybe it will help you to find some peace.

    Take care,

  • mona August 31, 2014, 10:03 am

    I was taking a video of my dog in my living room and saw a few white orbs, like someone said in a previous post, they looked like they were partying. Zooming quickly “dancing. I began asking them to make the drapes move (the windows where shut). Well, they didn’t make the drapes move, but as soon as I stopped recording, I took a picture of the curtains….7 faces I have counted. There may be more…I have the photos and the videos (plural).

  • Jeanni Jackson August 31, 2014, 10:36 am

    I have many pictures with orbs in them, I just took one of my rescue German shepherd and she is covered in an orb,,,I took several within seconds of each other and only one shows a huge orb…I also have one of my cousins wedding, (her mom passed couple years back and they were very close, Tara was very sad her mom was not at her wedding, I was snapping pictures while she was making her speech, she thanked her in laws for accepting her and wished her mom was there, she proceeded to hug the in laws and I snapped, when I viewed the picture I was very very pleased to see an orb across her face and arms, it appears as if her mom was also in the group hug.

  • Jeanni Jackson August 31, 2014, 10:36 am

    I would like to send these pictures but do not know how

  • Selina September 1, 2014, 9:49 pm

    Hi Jeanni,

    You can email me the photo as a jpg to TorontoPsychicServices@gmail.com. If you send me photos, I would like to add them to the Orb Photo Gallery blog. I will need permission from you and everyone else in the photo to post, and if you prefer, I can block out the faces.


  • Hannah James September 3, 2014, 10:38 am

    Hi! I am 13 years old and my moms father passed away one week before her wedding, and she told me he lived in Guam after her parents got divorced. After the wedding, my grandma found a wonderful man and he is now my pop-pop, and I love him very much, but I still wish I could meet my real grandpa. I wonder of he cares about me in heaven, and I have wondered that for a while. I prayed for him and asked for him to watch over my younger sisters and I. My dad’s dad passed away when I was eight, but I didn’t understand it than. I miss him, and also prayed for him. When my grandma passed away in February of 2014, I was so sad and realized how much I love her and I wish I would’ve saw her and called her more often. She did so much for my family and I can’t thank her enough. Anyways, my younger sister, who is eleven, was laying in my bed with me as I was showing her a story I wrote when something in the dark room caught my eye. A white ball was glowing, and it disappeared but within seconds had reappeared not far from its original spot. I thought i was going crazy but when my sister asked me “what is that?” I replied with “you can see it too?” We both watched what we now know is an orb travel around my bedroom, and nearly a foot away from my head. We were both so scared, but now a few months later she still comes in my room and occasionally we will see the orb. Even without my sister and if I am laying in my bed I will see it. It sometimes travels, but sometimes is just in one spot before disappearing. Id like to think this is one of my grandparents, or my dog who we put down at the age of thirteen in the summer of 2012, and I try not to be scared. I told my dad abiut it, and he says that they are good spirits and are only watching over me. He tells us that we have a special gift for seeing these orbs that most people cannot see, is this true? I just need some advice or ways to understand this better. Anything is appreciated. Thank you!

  • Marsha September 7, 2014, 7:04 am

    I don’t have a picture of an orb, but physically saw orbs in my bedroom last night. They weren’t very big, maybe the size of a golf ball, and they were pink and blue. There may have been other colors, but I don’t remember. At first, I thought something was wrong with my or that I was going to pass out,and then I realized the orbs were in front of me. They were moving, like small comets.

    This has never happened to me before…I can tell you that both my father and brother died in the room where I saw the orbs, and that they came to me on the anniversary of my mother’s death. Earlier in the evening, I had been weeping. I can’t seem to move forward after losing them all in such a relatively short span of time.

    The strangest thing is, I wasn’t afraid,but amazed. I stopped and watched them for a few seconds, and a peace came over me, but it never occurred to me that what I saw could have been spirit orbs until after my daughter mentioned it, later.

    I know this forum is for discussing photos, but you seem quite knowledgeable and I wanted to get your opinion. If they were indeed spirits, the doubts I’ve had since losing my family members have been erased. Do you think it could have been them, or perhaps spirit guides, guardian angels?

  • Jan Patterson September 8, 2014, 6:28 am

    I have loads of videos of spirit orbs from millions jumping all over my bedroom I have never seen as many in one place dust does not flash while others are flying by. I did some more videos in the house I am in now yet again there was hundreds flying on one particular video one came right up to my phone it was huge and blue.

    I was looking back over my pics from when I went to India (rishikesh), and noticed a large orb near my head in the one I linked. The question is- what is it? If you zoom in, its transparent.

    Your views?

  • deana September 16, 2014, 1:11 am

    Hello. I am writing because I took a video of my daughter dancing last night and at the 56 second mark an orb appears in the camera off to the right side of me. Another morning the buttons on my alarm system started making noises like someone was pressing them. On another occasion the 3rd bedroom room opened on its own after I shut no more than twenty minutes before. I just wanted to know should we be scared? I’m apprehensive to even be in there alone. Also how do I upload the video?

  • Selina September 17, 2014, 11:55 pm

    Hi Hannah,

    Yes your father is correct in that you are being watched over. Many people are opening up to seeing orbs. It’s a gift that we all have but some people are just more open than others and some people haven’t opened up yet. There is more spiritual activity on the earth at this time and people are starting to shift because of changes in vibrational frequencies.

    Take care,

  • Selina September 18, 2014, 12:18 am

    Hi Deana,

    Sounds like someone is trying to get your attention! Although I know these unexpected things are frightening, there is no real reason to be scared. Depending on how brave you feel, you could ask this spirit the next time it’s around to tell you what the message is and to give it to you in a way you can understand. If you don’t feel that brave, you can’t tell that you don’t like it doing what it’s doing and to stop. Try it and see what happens.

    All the best,

  • Cathy September 26, 2014, 12:18 pm

    My sister has recorded mutable Orbs on her phone white ones, last night she recorded once again and there they where plus an orange Orb, can you please tell me what they mean and why they are all around her ? someone has told her when there’s so many Orbs around it means someone is close to death and they have come to prepare the sole Please help thanks Cathy

  • Selina September 27, 2014, 3:21 am

    Hi Cathy,

    Many orbs around someone does not necessarily mean it is certain they will pass. In fact, there could be many reasons that someone has many orbs around them. It could be they are going through something in life and there is a lot of spirit support around them. Or they may have a very bright high vibrational aura or be spiritually open and the spirits are attracted to that. Another possibility is that the spirits just wanted to be seen and allowed themselves to be captured on her recording. Or it could be that where she is recording has lots of energy and spirits just hang out where she is.

    Take care,

  • Brittney marshall October 13, 2014, 12:12 pm

    We have a lot of pics with orbs in them and one is covering our aunts face but you can still see her shadow on the wall behind her and a lot are always by my son and I what does this mean?

  • Selina October 14, 2014, 4:38 am

    Hi Brittney,

    Some people have auras that are bright. They can also be more open to the spirit world. Sometimes they are going through a particularly hard time in life and need more support from the spirit world. Other times, they live in areas that naturally attract spirit energy.

    These are some of the reasons why some people tend to have more orbs around than others. The ones around your son feel very loving – especially one that is female in energy. Nothing to worry about with this.

    Take care,

    I have a video that I recently took on my phone.
    I was filming my girlfriend playing with our dog which was very excited about seeing it’s reflection in the mirror.
    After viewing the video I couldn’t help but see these brightly coloured orbs bouncing around in all directions.
    You would think they were disco lights.
    I do know that the previous owner died of peunomia in the very bedroom.
    So I don’t know if there is a possible connection

    The day my son passed (he was 34) there were probably between 20 & 30 orbs near the ceiling in pictures taken. In the days that followed orbs were everywhere we went. His girlfriend put her two sons Christmas stockings up and took a picture of them. There were two huge orbs, one on each stocking. The orbs had just about ceased to show up until two nights ago and I looked up by the ceiling of my bedroom and there was a HUGE orb. I ran and got my daughter up to see if she could see it. I didn’t tell her what I wanted her to look at, I just asked her to look around and tell me if she saw anything and she saw it too. She said,” Man that looks like a big orb, mom.” We did everything we could think of to make it go away. Nothing we did made any difference, it was still there.

    I video tape; photograph and even at this point am conjuring these things up. I have always been told that Im a sensitive but over the last two years they surround me. Does not matter what camera I use. I can assure the cynics they are not dust they come to me in every size imaginable. From a speck to a basketball to 4 ft in size. They move in formulation. In rooms that are lite. In the day light at night. I have captured them coming to me in droves over my rooftop. They are red, blue, pink they illuminate a circumference that easily cover half of my neighbors garage roof. I take them at home, in public. In the cemetery they appear to me if I call on them. I have a gift to predict things. I am of a strong Native American decent and I have been yold by family members that if I wohld just hon in on my skills I could easily become a full fledged shamanic. I dont doubt this and either do those that come into my life. I dont want to sound nuts but as a little girl but very much articually capable I had an encounter with a grey being. That was 1976 in Florida. The being was kind and told me that he was honorwd to speak with me. Thing is he Never spoke a word. He telepathically communicated throughtl thought. He advised me that he was there to monitor the horses on our land and he gave me a crash course in the description for DNA. This was real. I am a business owner. A respectable participant in my community. I am 42 and have lived a very strangely mystical life. I didn’t wish or choose these things but I am confident that we are evolving into a different dimension. Going forward we will see that many other sensitives are realizing these same things. Look Dorothy We Are Not In Kansas anymore. We are evolving from the 3rd to the 4th dimension. If anyone would like yo challenge me. Send me an email. I will provide you the visiblw proof of the orbs that are attracted to me and I assure you will not debunk my images or videos. It is real humans must accept similar to abolishing racism accepting that human beings Are Not the only or Most intellectual beings on Earth. You are living an illusion if you are a believer in a flat Earth or universe. Maybe my orbs came to me as protection maybe they just like me. Maybe Bob my Grey being friend is sending his meaaage to me through these graphic images that I am Not Alone and life as we know it and have been taught is far more complex than man is willing to accept. I named my alien friend bob because you can find a similar being plastered all over youtube named skinny Bob. These guys arw very real and just because they dont resemble Man does not mean we are permitted to assume they arw Evil. That is hogwash. Blacks used to be of lower intelligence than whites at one point in history however we know that is absurd. Rip back the flesh and all hman beings are the same color organ wise. Time to accept that everything you think u know is a snple illusion designed to deflect attention from whats really going on. If u would like to check out my orb pics or videos u will not regret it and it would bw my pleasure to enlighten anyone who is interested. God Bless, Namaste and Nanunanu

    I believe in orbs. I’ve only ever saw one to this date.

    It was years ago, at around 1am. I was ill so I had spent most of the day sleeping so I was wide awake at night in my bedroom. Anyways, I looked across the room and saw a pure white orb hovering over a plug socket that was turned on. It’s hard to describe the texture of it, but it looked so, you know, pure? They say white is the colour of protection or something and this looked really positive.

    The thing is, it was pitch black in the area I saw it because it was so late at night. So this round pure white orb around 10cm across was so easy to see the details on it. I didn’t approach it, I just sat there looking at it. It left eventually.

  • michele huihui January 4, 2015, 12:06 pm

    Just recently discovered hundreds of orbs floating around in my room. They are different shapes and sizes and colors. they float around slowly and sometimes are so fast it’s hard to see them. I video tape them all the time. Then u take still shoots from the video. sometimes I see faces and sometimes I see geometrical shapes.

  • Syrena January 10, 2015, 7:14 am

    Pictures taken from about five or six months before we lost our son all have orbs in them. (We use three different cameras for snapshots.) I thought there was a natural explanation for them – light reflecting off dust or something. Oddly enough, after he passed away, there are no more orbs on the pictures. Same cameras, same house.

  • Melanie January 12, 2015, 5:04 am

    I saw an orb on my baby sons monitor, it was moving slowly until I got up out of bed and it took of quickly!! My question is, how do I know if it’s good or bad??? It freaked me out!!

  • Selina January 13, 2015, 12:11 am

    Hi Melanie,

    I get this question quite a lot. I think I’ll write a blog post to help people understand better. Stay tuned for that. In the meantime I would suggest that you calm yourself down, know that you and your baby are more protected than you’ll ever realize. The orb is not “bad”, it’s watching. That’s what I hear. That’s specific for you. Why did it take off? I hear that “it didn’t want to interfere.”

    Take care,

  • Bay January 21, 2015, 9:08 pm

    Me and a friend were laying in bed with the lights out taking pictures of us making funny faces. In one picture thiers a white stringy looking cloud right in front of are faces.I was 14 or 15 and it was taken on a camera phone. Never beleived before and I say I still dont, but I know thier was something with substance in front of are faces. Now im 23 and here in the last mont iv seen two videos with orbs one at my boyfriends he had a servallence camera he hooked up and he laid it down on its side in the living room. We went to bed and the moniter is always on. There were orb light dancing around almost like a disco ball but but we watched for a while. They were moving together but each one was moving in its own diections at the same time. Now I just was on my camera app messing with settings and didn’t mean to hit record at first. Theirs a circle of light comes right down in the video and shoots back up. I got this video if you want to take a look let me know where to send it .

  • jaswinder singh February 13, 2015, 5:31 am

    My brother and his family were visiting me from canada this xmas. My brother took a picture of me and my neice at the beach . Never noticed the orb in the picture when he first took it but somehow I was looking at the pics several weeks later , I noticed the big red orb. I thought it might be a reflection from the sun but i dont believe that . There appears to be a red orb that looks like a eye or a lip with another lighter orb inside of the red orb that is covering me. My brother took the picture and the orb was moving up in each picture he took which was three in total. I don’t know if it is a negative energy or protective energy but I know in that moment when that picture was taken, I was so happy , laughing and so in love with my neice. What is really strange about this picture, was ,recently I met a friend who was telling me about this red orb that is always around everywhere she goes. She didn’t know what it meant but she showed me so many pics with the red eye or lip orb with a gold orb inside. I also happened to have gotten a picture of it too when I was at her place . I do believe in orbs cause I have alot in my apartment and they are very protective of me and very interactive. I have amazing videos of those interactions. ?? I believe my friend has a guardian angel or spirit guide around her and they are showing themselves to her. Please advise if this a negative or positive energy or did the energy attach itself to me . Please advise. Did her energy attach itself to me and should I be worried. I would be happy to email the pics to you to see.


  • David Hill February 20, 2015, 12:30 am

    i have seen orbs around my children when they are sleeping.my girlfriend lost her dad
    in November.we think its her dad.this happens regular .how can we talk to him.

  • Selina February 20, 2015, 12:53 am

    Hi Jas,

    Orbs can be different colours. I believe that the colour depends on the vibrational frequency of the spirit. Don’t be fooled by thinking that red means good or bad. To see if this is a spirit orb that is “good” it’s better to tune in with your intuition or see how your emotions and body feel when it’s around.

    I haven’t seen very many orbs that I would consider to be a concern for people. In fact, almost every single one that I’ve seen has either been a spirit that is protective, just hanging around, curious, or family.

    I don’t pick up anything negative about this orb and I don’t feel anything attached to you. If you would like to share the photos in the orb gallery for others to see, please email them to me and I must have permission from everyone who is in the photo.


  • Selina February 20, 2015, 1:09 am

    Hi David,

    Thanks for your question. I’m sorry to hear about her loss. There are a few ways to communicate with his spirit.

    1. See a medium who will be the intermediary for communication
    2. Speak to his spirit either out loud or your in your mind and then be still and receptive to perceive. Spirit tends to communicate in images, words (usually like thoughts that pop in your mind), feelings (such as an emotion or body sensation that comes over you, such as love or warmth).
    3. Ask for him to come in your dreams
    4. Ask him to give you signs that he is around (you may start finding objects – usually people find feathers, dimes, etc in unusual places, or you may hear certain music or phrases over and over again, but it could be anything that is meaningful) See my two blogs Signs from Spirit – The Flower and Red Shoes – Sign from Spirit Guides as examples.

    I hope this helps. All the best,

    Hi, my mother has been taking videos and photos in my home and has been seeing orbs. There is one video where you see a large orb rising from my floor make a twist and come directly at her phone then a dark shadow blinks in front of the camera and then the orb much more faint looking leaves the room . Can anyone out there help me understand what they mean. ThAnks

    Any help would be appreciated.

  • Jason March 8, 2015, 3:35 pm

    I have been working on my conscious spiritual shift and in a recent picture I had an orb appear over my heart. I have had other orbs in pictures around me but never actually over my body. I’m interested in others thoughts on this…it was a white orb.

  • Selina March 9, 2015, 12:28 am

    Hi Jason,

    Thanks for your comment! I have seen photos of orbs that are over a particular area of the body where there is a purpose for that particular position. It really depends on your photo. If you want to share it for others to see, please send it as a jpg and give me permission to post it.


  • Selina March 9, 2015, 12:33 am

    Hi Christina,

    Can you send the video so I can share it on the orb gallery? I will need permission from your mom as well if she is in the video. If we can take a look, I’ll be able to see what’s likely going on.

  • vee March 21, 2015, 3:48 am

    Hi i took a recent photo with my mobile phone of my baby boy after i had given him hair cut and clean him up and dress, i decided to take photos of him with his nice hair cut as i sat him on the sofa by himself and took my phone out and started taking pictures of him i didn’t realize then that after taking i would say 20 pictures on my mobile phone that i started to notice after going back to review them each that after 3-4 pictures at the beginning there he sat alone in front of me on the sofa all was normal until after those pictures there was all of a sudden beam of light that was next to him and i go through reviewing the pictures one after another this beam or spec of light starts to get more noticeable and appear clearer and clearer towards the end of the pictures it disappears…gone and i can see that the clearer pictures with light/ orb and with my son seem to also have a big circular halo around the orb or like tge orb is glowing i cant explain you would need to see the picture. Not sure but it’s like it is radiating and you can see the outter edge of the halo of this orb im not sure what it is but yoy can see that it even covers part of my baby body while he is setting down and makes part his body look transparent because it. Please let me know what this is an orb? Or not? And as i also like to mention when i had gave birth in labor room my partner had recorded it all as the nurses gave him to me to hold in the video you can see two little tiny balls of light came out his mouth and while he open his mouth and cried it shoot out into the sky/ ceiling and disappear still puzzled of what it could be im not sure. What do you think?

  • Selina March 24, 2015, 4:26 am

    Hi Vee,

    How lovely that your son has a really nice happy spirit that watches over him! That’s the feeling that I get. This is a spirit that has a very light and happy feeling. I get that it loves your son’s energy.

    The orbs out of the mouth – that is a new one to me. My feeling is that he had a couple other spirits that helped him with his birth and that they were not to stay in the body with him, but just kept him company, so to speak. As they weren’t to stay in his body, they were released out of his mouth as their job was done.

    Thanks for sharing your experience!

    Take care,

  • Faye March 30, 2015, 9:41 am

    Hi Selina, I have been seeing orbs in my daughters video monitor ever since she was really little. I thought they were bugs at first but then they would disappear in mid air. This started scaring me because when I was little I lived in a haunted house. I started looking things up because I was worried they could be harmful. I came to a guess that they may be guardian Angels. She told me when she was 3 that she could see lights flying around in her room ( I never told her because I didn’t want to frighten her) and I asked if they have ever spoken to her and she said that they are there to protect her. A couple months after that she said she couldn’t see them anymore but I would still see only a few in the monitor. Well today I saw a YouTube video of this guy who caught a ghost behind him from his xbox kinect. It was really creepy but it gave me an idea. So I tried it with our kinect. It’s like Skype but you see what the camera sees on the screen. Well you can change the settings to infrared and another setting. Well I turned it on and they were everywhere! There had to be 20 or 30 in various sizes. She is 4 1/2 now but didn’t seem to notice them on the screen. She was also diagnosed with autism last year. I also researched indigo children. I just hope that they are kind and not evil. HELP!!!

  • Selina March 31, 2015, 11:25 pm

    Hi Faye,

    I’ll have to look up what xbox kinect is. Your daughter is gifted. Even at a young age, she knew that the “lights” around her were good protecting spirits. Although she can’t see them anymore, they are still protecting her. I notice that some people tend to have more orbs around them than others. It doesn’t mean there is something wrong with them. On the contrary, I find that those people tend to have more light around them or are sensitive in some way. The ones around your daughter feel helpful.

    All the best,

  • Cathy April 3, 2015, 7:42 pm

    Hi Selina,
    I have a series of pictures I took of my husband sitting guru style on a hilltop. There is a green orb that travels up and down his right side and also directly underneath him. I read that green orbs are healing, I was wondering if right side or left side has a meaning as well. I believe it was 1 yr to the day that his father had passed away and we were in the same location on vacation at the time.
    The pictures are awesome!
    Thank you, Cathy

  • Selina April 12, 2015, 9:38 pm

    Hi Cathy,

    Although green is a colour that is often associated with healing, the green in the orb may reflect the frequency of this particular being rather than healing. The right side of the body is associated with the masculine properties and the left side is associated with feminine properties. There are other meanings as well, but in this case, I don’t feel this orb was moving that way for that reason. It feels more like a visit and the orb getting close into your husband’s field to make its presence known. It would be great if your husband would give me permission to post it in my other blog of spirit orb photos. It’s a gallery where other people share their orb photos. Please have him email me with permission and the photo if he would like to have his photo included.

    Take care,

  • Faye April 17, 2015, 11:22 pm

    Thank you very much 🙂 that made me feel a lot better!

  • Gena May 24, 2015, 3:54 am

    My daughter has orbs in many pictures taken of her. These orbs have been more and more frequent in photos since my mother passed away. There are, on occasion,orbs near my son in photos, but rarely. Many of them have a large orb that is with her and on occasion a few smaller ones. She and my mother had an extremely close bond and she has smelled her in our home a year or more after she passed.,.. (my mother passed away in our home in 2005 of leukemia,lived in the home for less than 4 months before she passed. and we, (my kids and my sibling) were all present when she passed). It doesn’t always occur when she is home either. they seem to follow her everywhere. They used to frighten her a bit. Now that she is older she is accepting of them and I feel that is why there are more with her. I can’t explain how unusual the photos are, without seeing them it sounds strange.

    Hello. When I was 13, I had a brain tumor and I believe that I passed away, while being operated. Since then, I realized that I could SEE and FEEL things that others cannot. I have already taken a Meditation course (last year) and would like to further my knowledge, in being able to talk and help lost spirits..

    Therefore, I was wondering if you may know of any courses or resources, to continue in this field.

    Thank You, Edward Stekar..


  • Selina Khan June 1, 2015, 6:46 pm

    Hi Edward,

    Aside from the courses that I teach that will help you with your psychic and mediumship abilities (in Toronto Canada), I suggest you find a spiritual circle and see that that is the right place for you. While there are many books that talk about psychic abilities and mediumship (you need psychic abilities to be able to perceive the spirit world and hence working on those would enhance your mediumship skills), I feel that there is nothing like learning through practice.

    All the best,

  • Nancy June 21, 2015, 6:11 pm

    Today is Father’s Day. Daddy passed away in 2010 and I have been seeing tiny gold orbs all afternoon. Could they be him, letting me know he sees the tears I’ve cried today?

  • Selina Khan June 24, 2015, 3:25 pm

    Hi Nancy,

    Sorry I didn’t see your comment earlier. Yes it is most likely. In fact, on days of celebration or memorials, spirits often will visit us. They are around us at other times too. But on these special days, they know how much we think about them and they come to give us their energy, support, love and signs that they are around.

    Many blessings,

    when i use my cell phone as a camera, i catch an ocassional streek of white light – looks like a con trail – the phenomena is white in color, large or small, dense or translucent, and dense and translucent in one streak. i have also seen these using the video of the phone – they are vary fast and change directions – curious.

  • Selina Khan August 8, 2015, 2:13 pm

    Hi Jim,

    Spirit energy manifests on video and photos in many different forms. Orbs are the most common. Streaks of light, mist and a flash of light have also been more common these days. Some people are able to see a flash of light with their eyes. This almost always happens when we aren’t trying to see! I’ve also seen other things with my physical eyes including full figure apparitions, light flashes, red orbs, bright silver moving orbs, and a kind of ectoplasmic fog. Seeing with the physical eyes is does not happen all the time. Psychics and mediums typically see in their mind’s eye.

    Take care,

    Hello, my name is Paul. I’m deaf and I’m English. I would like to ask you do you know what does it mean orbs that appear in recording on a camcorder? I have done this a few times at my parents’ house. I don’t do it all the time because I was curious to see if I would capture something while recording. The next day I was looking at the video camcorder to see if I had captured something but something came. It did this through the night, while I was asleep. It looked like while small bright light round shapes. They were moving in different directions. I was amazed to see them and showed them to my mum and dad. I would be grateful if you could please explain it to me as I’m curious.

  • Selina Khan September 29, 2015, 10:51 am

    Hi Paul,

    Spirit orbs can appear on still photographs or on video. If you look at my blog called Spirit Orb Gallery, you’ll see one that another person captured of an orb floating up the stairs. You’ve happened to catch a spirit being or a being that travels in the form that we perceive as a light or coloured spherical shape. Usually the colours are white, grey, blue, purple. I have also see other colours such as red and green.

    Some people see faces or patterns in the orb when they enlarge their photos. You may be able to do this with your camcorder if you freeze on of the frames and zoom in.

    These orbs may be forms of spirits or beings that you do know, such as a family member that has passed or that you do not know. I do believe that they may be able to travel between dimensions or in such a way that they can access other parts of reality that we currently can not or do not.

    Hope that helps!
    Thanks and take care,

  • Michelle R November 30, 2015, 8:41 pm

    We lost my husband to cancer a little over four years ago now, but about three months after his passing, my children and I went on a trip to visit with my husband’s family that did not live close by.

    While we were there, we went to visit my husband’s grandmother who was 102. My sister-in-law was trying to take a photo of my children and I with my husband’s grandmother. After several tries with the camera on her iPhone, she tried her daughter’s camera on HER iPhone. Finally, she shrugged and went back to her phone again.

    Afterward, I asked her what was wrong and she told me that she kept getting a strange reflection in the photos, even though she couldn’t see it when she was actually taking the pictures. After five or six tries, she decided there must be something wrong with her camera. That’s when she borrowed her daughter’s phone, but the same thing happened.

    The end result? A family photo of my son, myself, and my daughter (left to right) with my husband’s grandmother sitting in a chair in front of us. But it seems that my husband made it into the photo after all, as there is an enormous light pink orb hovering at my daughter’s shoulder, right where someone’s head would be if it had been a person. It’s so large that you can only see a quarter of it in the photo! THIS was the light that had appeared in all the shots my sister-in-law took, with two different cameras, even though there was nothing in the room that could explain why it was there.

    It makes total sense to me that it would be my husband and he would be nearest to my daughter, as they were very close in life and I know it was very difficult for him to leave her when he passed.

    Incidentally, my husband’s grandmother passed just a few months after that photograph was taken.

  • Selina Khan December 1, 2015, 12:14 pm

    Hi Michelle,

    I’m sorry to hear about your husband and his grandmother. However, it is very nice that you ended up with a family portrait of all of them together and that your husband’s spirit completed the shot. What a nice gift from spirit! Thank you for sharing with us.

  • Selina Khan December 30, 2015, 10:54 am

    Hi Lynn,

    There are certain children that seem to have more spirit activity around them than others. Perhaps your son is just really open as most children are when they are born and he sees. All of us have spirits and entities (Angels, Guides, etc) that help, love and protect us. For your son, they are playing with him and watching over him as well. You may want to read my blog about the ghost who ate pizza.

    It’s about another little boy who can see.

    All the best,

  • Selina Khan December 30, 2015, 11:03 am

    Hi Tyler,

    Everyone has the potential to open their psychic abilities. You perceive spirit through your psychic abilities although it is also possible to see spirit with your physical senses as well. So yes, you can develop your ability to see “ghosts”. This is true whether you have videos with orbs or not.

    You can find some books that talk about developing your psychic abilities, or a teacher that runs a class or will mentor you.

    Take care,

    I have seen orbs in my house twice early in the morning, and I was wondering if people can actually see them? Both times they were bright white and gold in colour both moving closer to the table as I was at. We have a family history of mediumship where both my mom, sister and I have some abilities, could this trigger me to see orbs? What can it want? Thank you so much for reading my comment, I am very new at asking questions about it. I hope to hear from you soon.

  • Selina Khan January 11, 2016, 2:06 pm

    Hi Catalina,

    Yes you can actually see them with your physical eyes too and not just by capturing them in photos. It’s common for intuitive abilities to run in families so you likely already have certain abilities, one of which is clairvoyance. Some orbs come because they are visiting us and may or may not be connected to us. Some individuals tend to attract spirit activity because spirit can see how open they are and the brightness of their light. Try feeling the vibes you get the next time you see it. It’s also good intuitive information that will help you discern the orb’s intentions.

    All the best,

    Is there any meaning in the colour of the orbs in a picture? My daughter has taken COUNTLESS pictures with her phone. Never had anything but dust orbs as a result of using a flash. But on Friday, she and a couple of friends were checking out an abandoned house. While outside, sun out so no use of a flash, 4 separate pictures show this green orb, each time in a different spot even though two of the pictures were taken immediately after the other, but like it was staying with the girls.

    My son had surgery when he was 2 he had orbs around him in every picture! Today I took a few pictures of him because he is so sick from the flu and aging he had many surrounding him! What could this mean?

  • Selina Khan March 2, 2016, 3:13 pm

    Hi Jennifer,

    There are many spirits that come to support us when we are going through challenges. Your son was and is being supported when he needs it. While a hospital tends to attract many spirits for various reasons, the orbs around your son at that time he was 2 years old feel compassionate and helpful.

    Many blessings,

    My Grandma is on hospice now and we are waiting for her passing.. My heart has been so heavy as I am her first grandchild and she raised me for 2 years as a young child. Night before last I couldn’t sleep at all thinking of my grandma and worried I would get a call.. as I tried to fall asleep i opened my eyes and there was this very round size of a base ball and very white ball in fronthe of me.. inside was it looked like a butterfly all white and wings fluttering on both sides…it stayed a few seconds and the went up and disappeared.. I got up cut on the lights and nothing was there..I went to the bathroom came back and layed on the couch all the lights cut off and I stared at my cell phone out the corner of my left eye I was a very bright light looked over and it looked like liquid fire making a symbol in the pitch dark.. it was as Ifar someone was trying to tell me something.. I was amazed it looked like liquid fire writing in the air…Can anyone tell me what this means.. My grandma only has a day or 2 left before she passes away.Thank You

  • Selina Khan March 14, 2016, 3:26 pm

    Hi Tasha,

    I’m so sorry to hear that your grandmother is going to pass soon. Although this is only a transition and not an ending, those of us still on the earth plane feel it as a loss when someone we love passes.

    Butterflies are symbols of transformation.

    It is not uncommon for people who are drifting in and out of consciousness or who are already unconscious and waiting to pass to be out and about on the etheric plane. They have not crossed yet and are not stuck. The cord that attaches us to the body, that integrates our spirit into the body, will not be detached until it is truly time for us to leave our body for the last time.

    The orb may have been your Grandma’s spirit telling you that everything would be okay. Often time we receive messages of peace during times such as you are going through. All these things that you describe experiencing are meant to give you solace and are directly from Spirit.

    When you are with her and you are saying your words to her while she is still attached to her body, don’t worry that her spirit won’t be there and off somewhere else if she is not conscious. There is an inherent wisdom that the spirit has and she will be drawn to be present with you.

    Many blessings,

  • Mary March 20, 2016, 12:22 pm

    Do you only know about Orbs,do you know anything about hearing the dead talk back,you can’t hear them at the time u r talking to them,but when being recorded,later u listen and you hear then speak,puzzled.

  • beth March 20, 2016, 4:10 pm

    i was at the stone circle in Stanstead Quebec this morning for the solstice sunrise. I would love to send you a very curious photograph that was taken. Is there anyway to do that? Thank you.

    I was just going through some pictures of my birthday and while everyone was singing happy birthday to me and when blowing my candles out they were a group of orb floating over my head, like a halo!! Even when I leaned in to blue the candles it seemed to get closer around my head!! I can send the pictures. Any thoughts??

  • Lee April 20, 2016, 6:23 am

    This is curious. Last night I saw an orb just as I awoke and my intuition tells me its a living person who came to visit me. I thought orbs were ghosts?

    I have a picture of me when I was 4 completely surrounded by an orb. It seems different from typical orb pics and I was wondering where I can upload it to see what others think it may be?

  • Tammy May 29, 2016, 12:13 am

    I have had several curious things show up in photos, most recently a very bright green thing. Mine don’t look like your typical round orb. Is there a way to send them to you to get your opinion? Thank you for your time 😉

  • Mary June 22, 2016, 6:00 pm

    Hi Selena. I need your help. Three years ago I had a medium come to my house to read people and about 5 months later weird stuff been going on. The radio went on its self, keys missing and showing up in my husband pocket, hearing a cell phone go off. Ect. also seeing many orbs flying across all parts of my house, garage too, and outside. I can only see them when the flash is on my cell phone. So I recently had a lady (that can communicate with spirit ) and come to my home and sage it. It’s been ok until yesterday. I heard a loud bang either at the door or window and then coming in from my garage the door wouldn’t turn. So I turned it the other way and it opened. Maybe I’m over reacting but I want it all to stop.. Can you advise as to what to do..

  • Selina Khan June 22, 2016, 6:55 pm

    Hi Mary,

    The activity in your house may or may not be associated with the medium. As I don’t know his/her energy, I can’t tell you what kind of energy she tends to work with. Sometimes things start happening for different reasons – someone brings a spirit into the house with them either through a direct attachment or through objects (usually antiques or other used items but it can be other objects), or the spirit is attracted to the place due to certain types and strengths of emotions that are extreme or for a longer duration. Those are two reasons off the top of my head, but really each case is individual. Sometimes it’s not a “stray” spirit but family that has already crossed taking themselves known, but that isn’t as typical.

    Smudging your house will not cross a spirit. It will not stop the activity as you describe. You need a medium who knows how to cross the spirit(s). If you can’t find anyone locally, I can help you. I do clear houses from a distance. If you are interested in that, let me know by email and I can let you know what I need from you to proceed.


  • Mary June 23, 2016, 9:59 am

    Hi Selena
    Ok I am waiting to hear back from the lady that smudged my house. She is claravoyant so I’m she can help. If not I want to contact you by phone if possible. I really want my home back to the way it used to be and I want to feel calm and not always on edge about this


  • Simonne June 24, 2016, 2:10 pm

    I was alone in my family room, laying propped up and all of a sudden two colorful orbs started darting about the ceiling and wall. they moved very quickly and seemed to be chasing each other. At first I thought it was a reflection of of something on me as I was the only thing moving but I could not locate anything. Then they went out the window and a blue orb appeared stayed still for a few seconds and was gone. they did not return. What was this?

  • Taylor July 1, 2016, 9:07 am

    Four days ago my father was taken in his sleep. He left behind a wife and 5 kids, me being one of them. The day after his passing I kept asking him to show me a sign, visit me, etc. and that he did. It was the night after and I was getting ready to go to bed thinking of him hoping he would visit me, I began using my phone as a flashlight to tweeze my eyebrows. The light stayed on for about a minute and then shut off, I thought nothing of it and figured I had just hit it by accident so I put it back on. I begin tweeting again and a few seconds later the light goes off again, this time I made sure I was not touching the screen at all and said to myself “dad if it’s you show me again” , put the light on one more time to finish up and a few minutes go by and again it shuts off. Twenty minutes later my boyfriend asked if I wanted to go out in the car to go for a ride so we went out and get in the car. While the car is still off and lights out, one flickers quickly. We both looked at each other and I told him it was a sign from my dad. My other sister was visited too, as she was crying on her bed my mom and dads wedding pictured fell over. The next morning I am discussing all of this with my family because I have never experienced such a thing. Later in the day me and my other sister are in the car driving and talking about my father , windows down, and Out of no where we smell his EXACT scent. I looked at her and was like did you just smell that? She looked freaked out and said yes, it was crazy. During the day my uncle stopped by and left us a lot of food from his restaurants we thanked him and as he was walking out (in the backyard) a big beautiful orange butterfly flies past us at the table , goes down the steps were he was and circles him. Later in the day my mothers friend had taken her out to have her hails done, as they left the salon I was in the car waiting for them , my mom comes in first and her friend comes out next , as soon as she walks out of the salon (on a busy main road) the same exact butterfly lands on her hand. It was him thanking the both of them for taking care of his family. We were all out for the day and by the time we get home My mother and I go upstairs into her room (where he had passed) and her light bulb is blown out, and the room had his exact smell so strongly as if he was laying right there. (It did not smell the day or the day after) at this moment I kept reassuring my mom that he was there with us, she began to believe because the signs were so strong. She says out loud ” show me another sign, show me your going to help us”, a minute after her air conditioner turned off. We made a phone call telling family what had just happened and when we got off the phone she asked for another sign. We sat there talking and I looked down and her phone had re dialed the number that we just called. The phone was not near our bodies. I began reading a little about spirits and read about orbs and wanted to try it out at that exact moment. We were sitting in the dark with nothing but the tv on and I snapped a picture facing away from the tv. In the picture you can see an orb of yellowish-white light that kind of looks like a baby. I believe my dad has transformed and his spirit is with us and I hope I can learn how to keep the connection alive. These last few days have been the most beautiful days of my life. I thought I would never be able to accept the death of my father until these signs, they made me so hopeful and positive knowing he is okay and that he is watching over us.

  • Selina Khan July 4, 2016, 4:24 pm

    Hi Simonne,

    Spirits moving around. Perhaps not chasing but following one another. They were aware of you, watching your presence when they were still, and then left out the window. Nothing malicious with these ones.

    Take care,

  • Kathleen Resto July 10, 2016, 1:02 pm

    My daughter took a picture of her 2 yr old son standing on the mop in Mickeys house at Disneyland and in the picture he has a green fuzzy outline all around his waist down. Can you help explain that? Thank you

  • SalliAnne BLEASE July 20, 2016, 1:21 pm

    Kind regards

  • Shea July 22, 2016, 10:07 pm

    Hi, my birthday just past a few days ago and I took a picture of myself and realized it was too dark. I just looked back at it and there is a white smokey looking thing in front of me and I’m wondering what it could be. There was definitely nothing on me or the mirror! Could you look at it for me? Thanks so much!

  • skumar July 26, 2016, 11:27 am


    my father passed away around 11 years and we keep his photograph in our house. suddenly on his 11th anniversary day we found a white orb on his right eye, which was not there earlier? is it possible that a white orb which was not there earlier gets suddenly visible on the picture?

  • DANA WALLACE July 30, 2016, 1:01 pm

    My family and I took a trip to Mexico and San Diego for the new yr. We were all on the beach and captured a lot of streaks and what I believe are orbs. The kids were totally with the idea of spirits my husband says it was the wind. There is so much activity on one pic in particular that you can barley see my stepson. It’s something we’ve never experienced before.

  • Selina Khan August 8, 2016, 2:52 pm

    Hi Salli,

    Children and pets have a vibration that spirit tends to find easier to be around. Sometimes they are there because they like their vibration, other times because they have a purpose in helping them.


  • Selina Khan August 8, 2016, 5:44 pm

    Hi Shea,

    Thank you for your comment. I have many requests to interpret orbs and energy in photos and videos. Because this takes time and energy on my part to do what I do, I now offer this as a service as part of my scheduled readings. It also ensures you get a timelier response as I am not able to get to blog comments as often as I would like. There is more information under the mediumship tab.


  • Selina Khan August 8, 2016, 5:51 pm

    Hi Skumar,

    Yes it is possible. In fact, this has happened with paintings, photos, and other objects. It’s not common, but it is possible.


  • Tony September 8, 2016, 10:15 am

    Hi, I have discovered an image of a person on the wall in photos, but only when my daughter is in the room. She has to be in the room for the image to be present. Its an older person who doesn’t look to be very happy. She hasn’t noticed it yet and I haven’t told her. I would like to share these images with you.
    Thank you,

  • Melissa Delgado September 30, 2016, 6:01 am

  • Mary November 28, 2016, 11:24 pm

    Hi I took a picture of the sun just above the trees with my IPad today. There is a purple object. It has a head shoulders and slopes down a point. It has an orb on it that is blue with bright white center. I zoomed it up, no face. Just very interesting. I wonder what it means?

  • Brianna Parker January 1, 2017, 6:33 pm

    Thanks for this article. It helped a lot and seeing u are a psychic medium gives u morr credentials in my eyes. I have spent a lot of time using a video recorder to capture orbs but the whole dust thing made my heart sink. I use my phone and don’t get much if anything with no flash on. I read that if its a true spirit it won’t need the flash as it will generate its own light. Just today i started trying to get video of a spirit i helped cross over recently completely by chance. I deal with spirit guides angels and departed loved ones who have crossed over. I don’t choose to feal with any ghosts nor do i purposefully seek them out. So this was a first for me. Thtu my psychic medium friend i spome with this spirit after she crossed over and she said she is always with me. So i decided to try capturing her on video. Upon pondering the fact that i don’t get anything unless thr flash is on when recording and that i read if it’s a spirit orb it will generate its own light therefore u won’t need a flash. Then it occurred to me that spirits take the energy around them to help them manifest. So it would only make sense that the energy from the light on the recorder could be a really good conductor of the energy spirits need to manifest. Now from experimentation dust can definitely look like a spirit orb but there are good ways to determine the difference. If it’s bright colored practically solid looking its most. Likely spirit. If it responds directly to ur request such as the direction u ask the spirit to move (left to right, right to left, etc.) its spirit. Pausing the video and taking a still shot of the orb and enlarging it, there are certain characteristics that a spirit orb has that help differentiate dust from spirit. Intuition is also great for determining the difference between dust and spirit. I’d like to share a couple images and videos o got recently of what im sure is the spirit i helped cross over. How can i send??

  • Selina Khan January 19, 2017, 5:19 pm

    Hi Brianna,

    Thanks for sharing your experiences with us. Yes that’s true that intuition is a great way to see if it’s spirit or dust. Nice tip!

    I would assume that as the universe is full of energy a spirit would be able to draw energy from a variety of sources and not just a flash. This is assuming that the spirit needs energy to manifest. It is possible that manifestation is a result of a change in frequency and that this may not require an outside source of energy. From my experience, not all spirit cooperate with a request for changing direction. They are free will beings as we are and not all comply. However, it’s great if you have been able to have cooperation like this! We really don’t know everything about the spirit world and there is not always one solid rule for things (there are always exceptions to rules).

    If you would like to share your videos or photos of spirit on the blog’s Spirit Orb Gallery, please give me permission to do so through email and attach the videos or photos to the email. I will post them on the Spirit Orb Gallery blog.


  • steve April 1, 2017, 7:42 am

    Dear Selina and readers,
    My ex-wife died 11 days ago, and I have been capturing orbs on video using my cell phone. I have over 300 hundred separate Videos and have saved the top 15. Every single time I call her name, she appears. I started asking questions by placing a Yes or NO drawing on the couch and bed and she responds. This is both fascinating and a little uneasy because I have never did this stuff before.

  • Selina Khan April 3, 2017, 4:33 pm

    Hi Steve,

    I am so sorry to hear about your ex-wife’s passing. I’m glad that you feel connected to her. And it’s nice that there is a spirit orb that comes when you call her name. Each time this orb appears, it would be good for you to connect to the energy and verify for yourself that it is her energy and not only rely on the yes/no answers.


  • Patricia R. April 18, 2017, 12:17 am

    Just a question, not a comment, but I’m kind of worried. I snapped a pic of an orb with a face in it. When I enlarged the photo, it was quite obvious (not only to me) that the face in the orb was mine. We live near a demonic entity, and I’ll frequently here my son call me, only to discover I’m alone in the house. I have no idea if any of these phenomena are related, but I’m just a tad unnerved. I can see (sometimes) and hear (sometimes) spirits, almost always benign encounters. Please, if anyone knows why my face should/would show up in an orb I snapped, I’d be grateful to hear from you. Thanks, Pat

  • Selina Khan April 20, 2017, 2:49 pm

    Hi Pat,

    Well that is the first time I’ve heard of seeing your own face in the orb! It doesn’t surprise me though. You see, we are multidimensional beings. There are many aspects of you. It could be your own spirit showing itself to you as your own form.

    It is also possible for another spirit to take a form that is similar to you, however, that’s not what I’m getting for this instance. I feel that it’s you from a different time or place coming through the orb.


  • Jacqui April 20, 2017, 6:00 pm

    On a visit to New Orleans I took a digital photo that had many orbs in it, I showed it to my daughter and her friend and we all commented on them. The next day I went to show it to my other daughter however, instead of three tiny orbs there was now one orb taking up half the photo. How could it have changed?

  • Selina Khan April 28, 2017, 6:20 pm

    Hi Jacqui,

    LOL! Yes it is interesting when that happens. I once took a photo on my trip in England. I was staying at a particular B&B that had spirit activity. The photo clearly showed a spirit on the wall on my camera. When I looked at the photo on my camera the next day, it had faded away to barely being seen.

    Spirit can manipulate energy very easily so it wouldn’t be hard for them to change the photo. You saw what you needed at the time.


  • kerry nicholson May 23, 2017, 2:12 am

    hi i am writing to ask you a question i have a few photos that i took around xmas time and when i put them on my computer when i seen what i did i wasn’t scared or anything i know there sprits out there i have seen and felt them i have lost so many family members and a good friend of mine i was wondering if you can help me if i show you these photo but it has to be via email please i need your help thank you ps i am from Australia

  • Selina Khan May 31, 2017, 4:11 pm

    Hi Kerry,

    Thanks for your email. Due to the frequency of people asking me to read their photos or tune into things, I have started to charge for looking at photos as it takes my time and energy away from my regular clients. You are welcome to request a reading of the photo. You can find more under the Mediumship tab of my website for Spirit Orbs in Photographs.

    Thanks for your understanding.

  • PS September 18, 2017, 9:41 pm

    Hi there Selena,

    I have been wanting to get pregnant for a long time. I took a photo and sent it to my husband. In the photo you can see 2 large white orbs and two smaller orbs. I didn’t see them at first but when I zoomed in I could see almost little fetus’ inside the two larger ones. Could this mean I am about to conceive? Or what do you think it means? I will have 4 children? I just don’t know what to think…..

  • Kathy September 22, 2017, 11:36 am

    I have many orbs in my security cameras both inside and out. What does this mean and do I need to be worried?

  • Selina Khan October 2, 2017, 2:28 pm

    Hi Kathy,

    No, you don’t need to be worried. Orbs in themselves are not a problem. If you have other things going on spiritual that you find draining or negative, then you can start to research or see what you can do about it. But orbs are fine.


  • Selina Khan October 2, 2017, 2:33 pm

    Hi PS,

    It could represent 2 family already in spirit (passed) and one child waiting, and one smaller orb that feels female that may not choose to incarnate through you. The child orb may. Don’t read into it. Just know that you are supported by spirit and take actions toward your goals, watching to see how to adjust as it all unfolds.


  • bsblues November 8, 2017, 9:00 pm

    I’ve been searching for a possible answer for 2yrs. I woke up in the middle of the night sleeping on my back (which I never do). As soon as my eyes opened I was looking at a VERY BRIGHT red orb. It glowed so bright that I could not see the edges around it, and I’ve NEVER seen such bright red in my life. It was in my bedroom near the foot of my bed just outside the door of my bathroom. It was about the size of a golf ball and didn’t move at all, it just hung there. I stared at it for a minute or two while asking myself 3 times “what the hell is that?” while trying to see around the edges of it. I felt NO Fear just curiosity. Like I said the orb never wavered and I had a feeling that it WANTED me to see it. After looking at it for a minute or so I closed my eyes and don’t know if I dozed back off or not but when I opened my eyes again it was gone. I had lost my best friend 2-4 months prior to this night. What has kept it on my mind and still makes me emotional at times is the pact my best friend and I made, it was who ever left this life first if Heaven really was real and we could let the other know that we made it that if it was at all possible we would let the other know somehow. I still cry when I think about it and wonder if it was my little buddy trying to keep our pact to each other and let me know that YES Heaven IS REAL and YES HE MADE IT there. I carry this experience with me everyday now and something deep inside me aches to know.

  • Selina Khan November 20, 2017, 1:11 pm

    Hi Bsblues,

    Thank you for sharing this experience with us. Trust your intuition. You’ll know in your heart if this is your friend coming to you. I feel much love and connection from this orb to you. And I agree with you – it wanted you to see it and made sure you were able to perceive it clearly so you would know that it was real and that he is around. From my perspective, I feel this is your friend.

    Bless you,
