Seeing Orbs And Perhaps Simply A Good Intuition


I suppose that everything started within the last year or two. Or, at least, that's when I really began to notice things.

The strangest occurrence that has happened is my seeing these floating orbs at night. It's happened three times now-- once in my old apartment and twice where we currently reside.

The first and second time were pretty similar. I awoke both nights to see a milky white floating orb above me. It was about the size of a grapefruit and fuzzy at the edges. It had this sort of tail thing that tapered off at the end, like one of the vintage Christmas ornaments or toppers you see on trees. You could kind of see through it, but it was definitely solid. Anyhow, I stared at it for a moment or two before it rose slowly and dissolved just before it hit the ceiling. I never felt any panic upon seeing it. In fact, I experienced this overwhelming sort of comfort while it was there.

The last incident was a little different. My boyfriend woke me up to tell me that he saw something above him (which is nothing new, as he tends to 'see' a lot of things at night and talks in his sleep) and as I sat up, there were all of these smaller, less bright things above him about two inches from the ceiling. There were about eight or so of them, and they moved around kind of like slow static. These weren't as round and defined as everything else I had seen above me, but stopped after we caught a glimpse of them and dissolved into mid air just like the others. Of course, when I asked him if he remembered what we saw that night, he told me that he had no recollection of such events. Go figure.

I don't know if it's related at all, but I figure I might as well mention that I've also been experiencing a few dreams that have related directly to things that happened the next day.

In one, I was running around on the eve of my wedding day (which has yet to happen) and was obsessed in my dream about finding a ring. The entire dream was centered around that ring. While I was still dreaming, my boyfriend woke me up, very excited that he had finally found the ring he got me a few weeks back and quickly misplaced. He slid it on my left ring finger and told me I could never take it off.

In another dream, we were looking at a house that we had planned to go see in real life the next day. The house in the dream had a huge bathroom with a pretty decent sized hole in it that went straight to the floor below. When we went to see the house the next day, lo and behold there was a set of tiles in the master bathroom floor that would creek, squeak and crack whenever one would walk on or around them. I wouldn't even walk on them because the whole section felt so weak.

There have been a few other times when I would think about something and it would happen right after that, but nothing huge. Just songs that would start play on the radio as I was thinking about them, picking up my phone right before I get a message, etc.

Does all of this interconnect by chance? Even if the separate incidences don't go together, each thing is pretty interesting and I would like to know more information on them. If there was a way to hone these "skills" (both the dream thing and being able to see what I assume are energies/spirits), I would really love to do so. I just wouldn't want to get into the spirit thing without some guidance!

Hi Kori

After going through all I have been through with it all, you really should just be sure your life is free from any deceit or harmful thoughts. Be that consistent place of love, just goodness & honesty.

A veggie diet helps but sometimes makes me wish I don't, but all the better I do. In time, it can happen, just naturally things can show up... Not in our timing of course, just whenever.

I hope this helps you. Keep making life fun & happy

I can see that. I would prefer the term 'spirit' if I were them, too. 'Ghost' has such a negative connotation.
Yours sound so lively! And sweet.:) How often do you see them? I wish I could mine more often.
Now, I've read in other places that some spirits that are different colors other than white are "bad" spirits. Is there any truth to this at all? Everything I've seen has been either white (the big ones) or greyish (the smaller, buzzing ones.)
I can't wait to see one again so that I can hopefully remember to try talking to or touching them.

From those I speak with, they very much prefer to be called spirits, not ghosts.

Orbs are one way in which they make their presence known to us still stuck in a skinsuit. I've had evenings in my front room with a veritable fireworks display going on. One made the gesture of picking a flower for me from a vase on the mantlepiece, just because.

I see mostly bright light orbs, some dark shadow ones. Depends on the spirit and how they wish to make themselves seen. Sometimes they really go for it and let me see a full figure apparition, which always makes me smile.

They certinly don't mean to harm you. Mostly they just really like it when they know you can see them. Say hello. They can hear you. They'd be thrilled if you could hear them too. If they are warning you of something, you WILL know. Just relax and enjoy the experience. One day you might be an orb to someone just like you. 😁

Your experiences sound a lot like mine! I want to see what they if I try touching them now, too! How old were you when you saw yours? Do you still see them?
I don't have much recollection of seeing anything quite like this prior to the last year or two. Actually, the bulk of what is happening to me seems to be within the last year or so. Maybe I'm just more aware of what's going on.
I will try meditating more for sure.
Let me know if you figure anything else out about them. I'm so curious about these... "things".:)

Oh wow! I always assumed the orbs I saw as a child were just my imagination. But after reading your entry it makes me think twice about it. Honestly though, I am as in the dark as you about what exactly the orbs are. I used to see the orbs every so often during the wee hours of the night. Sometimes I would awaken and see them (about 10 or so orbs) flying overhead. Other times I would be lying awake just wondering why I was awake and when I would fall back asleep.
The tail you described appeared more trail-like to me though. The fuzzy orbs would fly around leaving misty trails that dissipated. At first I was shocked and I thought I was going blind (hey, I was a kid who did not know what was going on... I still don't know what was going on but that's not the point I am trying to make right now. Haha) I would like to point out that I never felt fear when I saw these orbs, just fascination. Once or twice I stuck my hand up to see if I could touch the orbs. They flew around my outstretched arm and I don't remember feeling anything. Maybe a slight pressure against my skin but I attributed that to the displaced air caused by my waving arm. 😆
I also had a few instances where I foresaw something before it happened. I also saw something from the recent past which prompted me to ask my elder sister an odd question. Won't get into that now.
The only advice I have for you (which isn't much by the way. Sorry. I am a novice as well.) is to start meditating. It will help ground you and focus what gifts you have. Having a mind as still as a lake may help you tap into your latent gifts. I hope there are others here who can give you more guidance.

I am intrigued by their presence and would like to know who or what they are, but I don't feel like I know enough about them or situations like this to really know what to do (or more importantly, what to do if something happens to go badly.) While I don't feel they mean any kind of harm, I would hate to disrespect or upset something like this accidentally, you know?
I would like to know if they are ghosts, as you describe, or residual energies of something that has lived in this dimension and passed on. I feel like there may be a difference? Correct me if I'm not following what you were saying and am wrong!
In the event that I do end up trying to contact them, what would be the best way of going about it? Do I just try to meditate, channel in on them somehow and start asking questions?
I'm so new to this! I think I'm going to head to a metaphysical store in town today to see if I can't learn more about this kind of thing.

Well ghosts are actually thought of nothing but subdimensional species or species with greater dimensions and that's why its very rare to see them in our regular senses. However due to the fact they are higher in dimension they sometimes may try to contact us via our subconscious mind. But as far as hellokori described, those you see may be ghosts trying to tell you something; something they want to pass on; maybe to warn you or to help you

I don't mind them being there by any means. I like when they visit. I'd really like to know more about them, though!

They might be ghosts and they don't intend to harm you they left and you might say who are you and they will probaly leave you alone
