Seeing Glitter-like Sparkles


I have been exploring this site like crazy lately and I love the community everyone has created here. I wanted to tell you all about something that happened to me recently and see if you have heard of anything similar happening to anyone or just had any insight on it.

It was a couple weeks ago - I was making the bed and adjusting the pillows, when I felt like I should look up, so I did, and in the corner of the room above the bed I saw a bunch of sparkles.

It looked like somebody threw a handful of glitter from the top of the ceiling and the glitter was falling/floating in the air. The area around the glitter was mirage-like, like when you look above hot asphalt.

It felt like time was slowed down and I stared at them in awe and tried to touch them. I then asked my boyfriend if he could see them too and he said no, but as soon as I opened my mouth, the sparkles started to fade. It seems like a small part of me knew if I said something they would go away, but I asked him anyway, and then they faded slowly, they didn't disappear all at once.

They lasted about 20-30 seconds.

I felt very peaceful and kind of strange while seeing the sparkles and I haven't been able to shake it from my mind since.

The tenants upstairs say that the house is haunted and the old tenant of this apartment said "have fun in the haunted basement!" when they drove away when they moved... The house has a cat that lives in the top apartment and this cat frequently comes into the apartment and stares or sits in that corner of the room where I saw the sparkles.

In the past few months I have started to explore meditation and have been working on clearing my chakras, specifically my third eye, because I have had a few clairvoyant moments here and there recently and I want to expand these abilities. I want to know if this is related, or if it has happened to anyone else. Any input is much appreciated! Thanks in advance.

It's probably the white blood cells moving through your eyes. I see what looks like white glitter in the sky, and it's to do with the fact that when white blood cells flow through the capillaries in the eye they let blue light through to your retina. The retina sends a signal of increased brightness to the brain and it this makes it look like spots of sparkly light are moving through the space. I like it though, it looks pretty and quite magical, but I know it has a physical cause. Good luck with your spiritual journey x

also the energy that I see can look like tiny bolts of electric blue lightning and if it was the case of entoptic phenomena wouldn't every body experience it.
And what about the massive sparks of bright golds and reds purple sometimes rainbow auras of trees I have seen them snaking up into the sky off every tree at great stupa of universal compassion in australia. I don't believe science can answer this one my friend we are moving beyond science into the realms of the source.:)

Lyro I find it strange that I only saw these lights and energies directly after having a force like a mini big bang explode through my body which I later about 6months after it read books on kundalini and relised what had happened. It was only the next day after this experience that I saw gold and blue lights
Described by ancient indian sages also crop circle esque
Clear defined perfectly round rings with a reptillian eye in the centre seeing vibrations feeling and working with magnetic force seeing a clear almost un decipherable language in the air and around people after 14 years this has not stopped a medium I went was actually the catalyst for the whole event. Also I have been to optometrist who say that my optic nerves are twice as thick as normal you see my eyesight I believe is actually evolving as I am energetically this is after all the energetic evolution of mankind to become what we and everything else truly is pure energy.:)

I agree with AnneV, it doesn't sound too much like a spiritual being, that would normally be in either a full form, or orb form (orb uses less energy). Just from what I heard I have a couple things that come to mind. The first is a more scientific view point, and I mention it because like I was told once long ago, not everything has to deal with the supernatural. It's called blue field entoptic phenomenon, it appears as tiny bright dots which can be seen from light sources, the sky, typically I found either a white or blue color you can see it best. It has to do with being able to see the shadows of your blood cells in your eyes being cast to the back of your eyes causing the white dots to appear.
Now, the second would be something like AnneV was describing. The Egyptian lore dictates that in the beginning all was a sea of chaos, nothing but energy moving around. That to me is what the ether would be, a sea of energy, and I believe that's what she's trying to get at. What you could be seeing is that energy itself.

Just some thoughts:)

Thank you to those who have commented so far and I hope to hear from more of you...

AnneV what do you mean by "see into the astral"? Thanks for the encouragement:)

Moonster I'm so sorry to hear about the loss of your brother and father. That sounds a lot like what I saw. I am beginning to believe it is a spirit's energy manifesting itself visually to me, though I am still not sure why.

JohnBrian when and in what context did you see the sparkles? Thanks for sharing!

Okay, first let me say that there is not a single answer any of us could provide. All we can do is speculate because once we give something a meaning, its only based on preference. This is something I learned and I do not claim to be "in tune" with spirits and energy etc. What I believe (my preference) can be numerous things and I'll list a few below with examples.
About five years ago, I was attacked by a dark being. This thing rushed into me and attacked from the inside. Before doing so, I had an instinct that said to have a seat, "danger is coming." It felt like electrical punches all over my body lasting maybe a few seconds of being in a slight shock... No pun intended. I ran from the situation, out of the house, and to a friend explaining what just happened. Two friends, including the one I ran to, reported the same type of situation happened to them. Both told me that the thing that attacked them was after me, or it had mistaken them for me. Anyway, I'll move on from here starting with a little prior to this event.
I had been in martial arts for about 18 years but never developed chakra for it. My chakra specialized in tuning, absorbing, health etc. For some reason, my chakra did not interact with my many forms and styles. Something did and it has been proven, at least me and a few others do.
I am now 29 with an unknown injury I'm about to go to hospital for in just minutes from now. I am 30 years old and 315 lbs of fat, maybe muscle underneath? Ha ha. Anyway, people are astounded how fast I am. My strength as a kid has always been amazing, but not in martial arts. Where I considered myself to be weak, showed in martial arts. Example, When grappled with another I always seemed inferior in strength. Now my strength in martial arts/self defense is to me unimaginable. Like I said, as a kid I was nasty strong. I would pull the door frame off to push the baby gate down to get out of rooms, at three! I am not boasting I am starting to realize now where in lies the issue.
So where did this strength go? How come at 30 and fat I can move and twist, jump, wing, punch, move gracefully and kick well over your head? How do I weigh so much when doctors say that I only seem 250-260? I do not have a bunch of flattering people around to tell me what I want to hear. I move on...
When I was attacked, and previously "messed with at night, I had been in search of God the proper way. Through his word etc. No religion just a relationship. I have been into numerology so much so I figured lottery numbers out prior and after drawn. It wasn't about winning money I thirsted for further knowledge. (From Alchemist to Scholar for example. When someone wants to study alchemy to make gold and riches from raw material. Along the way to reach such a height, you must study so much it ridiculous. Most while doing so, become more interested in the thirst for study then the gold). I tried and have put in action theories if I said, you would not believe. Even if you did, you couldn't possibly fathom the experience because I still do not... And I was a part of it as well as willing participants. I have been into so many occults, its no wonder I opened so many wrong doors. When I go for something of interest, I become it so much it becomes me.
So imagine to hurry this comment up, that life was passing and all these studies were explored. Never was I messed with, touched, scratched or any other demonic or unclean spirit experienced until I went to God the proper way. I too have seen this energy recently that you mention. So has a friend of mine and he gave me a better way to describe it. Its like fourth of July sparklers of white as they travel or manifest around us. He saw his room filled with them when I saw them in action. Going towards God again now properly, I was on the verge of another attack. Each experience led me to retreat the proper way due to fear. So if I stopped so did they, whatever they are... I have to go to hospital now so I'll be back to finish this. Unless you are not interested.

The reason why I joined this site is to find an explanation for the sparkles that I have seen. My brother and father recently passed away and while I was visiting their crypt and meditating... I suddenly saw sparkles on the ground. I kept analyzing their movement to see if the was a pattern and probably just a physiological phenomena but they were moving with no particular pattern. It seemed liked each sparkle had a life of its own. Since then, this experience has occurred 4 more times and only when I am outdoors...

I don't know what it is and I'm trying to figure out what it means...

When I am at the peak of my spiritual/chakra work, I can start to see into the astral in the form of the same sparkles you speak of. They can be so intense that it can flood my entire surroundings. I think as we develop our energy, we can increase the levels that we can see into. This sounds more astral than a ghostly being, but it's hard to say for sure since it was just you who saw them. Keep up the great energy work!
