Little Lights


For the past several years I have been seeing, intermittently, little lights. They look more like tiny sparks that show themselves for only a second, many looked white while some looked red, green or blue.

On occasions I have even seen ones that looked black but had a white, halo-like rim around it.

Because I wear glasses I often just attributed it to illusions or anomalies related to my less-than-perfect vision.

Sometimes these tiny sparks appear just to the side of my vision and at other times they are right in my field of vision.

There have been occasions where I have seen blobs of blue or green as well. While I try to search for rational and logical explanations I must admit my scope of knowledge on how the eye and the visual cortex works is a bit limited.

I am unsure when I started noticing these little lights nor do I know when they actually started to appear. For all I know they could have been there all along but I never really noticed them until about ten or so years ago when I'd just be sitting around, for example, and I would see these little "sparks" just appear then disappear.

On one occasion I was in my room at night, it was dark, and I looked at something on my shelf and I could have sworn I seen a bright speck of light sit in the air in front of an object then slowly fade out. I just passed it off as either a illusion or just a firefly but it is possible it was something else too.

These little lights might be something more than just a visual irregularity then again it may not be.

Any ideas?

I have been seeing these sparks of light also. They can be in anything at any given time. I started noticing them more after a meditation where I asked to see True Reality. I believe we are starting to see the energy in what we think to be common everyday stuff. Everything is made of the same energy and we are part of this energy. To me it is just a subtle hint that there is more to this world than we think:)

Chetyre- Ah, ok. The first time I noticed it happen was right after a dizzy spell, and I kind of flipped out and probably would've seemed a bit tipsy to the regular person passing by, because two things were combined- dizziness and shiny sparks everywhere I looked. 😆 Of course you kind of have to experiment, look around everywhere while stumbling around, and also repeat, "whoa, O_O". 😆

Hi Shinigami

I never asked my eye doctor because I just assumed it was normal or just simply my eyes. I never really was bothered by them nor was I ever inclined to think of them as indicating an ability... Just wierd "eye" stuff. 😊

Chetyre- I see those sparks too, when I'm dizzy, stood up or moved to fast, or sometimes randomly. In the past, I have also worn glasses. It might have something to do with how the eye processes things. What did your doctor say about them?

I'll try looking up some info in my AP Psych book. It has a whole chapter dealing with sight, and how it is connected to the brain. 😊

Oops, I meant to say "the OTHER things I see out of the corners of my eyes". Sorry 😊

Hello Chetyre, I'm in my 50's and have had to wear eye glasses most of my life. Every time I visit the eye doctor it seems I learn something. Well, I do recall being told something about those little sparks a while back. I don't remember exactly what he said caused it but I remember him saying it was quite common. I have experienced the same thing myself and I wonder if maybe it has to do with physical exertion like running, exercising or anything that would increase the heartrate. On the other hand, I don't think that explanation works for the things I've seen out of the corner of my eye (s). 😉

Hi I'm new to this web page, but I myself have seen these bright lights at first I thought their was something wrong with me and my eyes... I believe in spirits and everything just because of my past experiences. Anyways I have been seeing these lights for as long as I can remember they tend to appear just about anywhere and each time they appear I always get scared because something bad always happens wether its a quarrel between my boyfriend and i, and arguement between me and my mom or anything bad in general. Just not too long ago I was watching tv and this bright blue light appeared and almost the following day my boyfriend and I started arguing... Another time before when I was about 13 or 14 I used to be able to tell when their was going to be an arguement between my parents and sometimes I could tell how severe it would be by the brightness of the light (weird huh) and it would always happen the following day or maybe a couple of days later they would argue... I never really payed attention to it until I started getting older I started to fear them because something always bad happens... Can anyone tell me what these light are or mean? Am I able to talk to them? Are they orbs? Spirits? I'm so confused? PLEASE HELP!

Well I Just say that they are a blessing because they are like heavenly to me. So that's why I say that. Cause I've seen them too. But not that recently. But back then like a few weeks, or a month ago. I used to see them very often. And they are like blue, yellow, or white flashes. And I've read that they are our spirit guides. And are there when we are sad or happy.

for Glow-inthedark: I am curious... Why would these be a blessing in particular?

I am not implying I see it as a curse or something bad but... A blessing? I am not trying to be snide just curious.

I've seen them too. And I think it's like a blessing. But they say also that they are spirit lights. 😊

I haven't seen little "lights" persay but I did once see a golden like orb. A more recent experience happened this past spring. I was about to go to bed and a large sparkly white "light" appeared in the air beside my bed, floated over me and then disappeared. It was an amazing experience. I wouldn't mind experiencing such a thing again. 😊

Well "spiritgirl2010" my ears ring too. Have done so for as long as I can recall but in this case I am sure it is tinnitus.

Sadly I happen to be a "non-believer" in that I am not so sure I accept the commonly held concepts of spirits and such BUT since I have seen these "sparks" right in my field of vision I do wonder.

Of course there are also other forms of energy out there that I suppose can be detected when the conditions are right.

AutumnEyes...That would freak me out a tad too if I seen something like that but at the same time sounds kind of neat.

Thanks so far for the replies.

I've experienced this too, quite noticeably late last night. I was reading a book about Wiccan traditions and I saw, just for a moment, a very small but clear golden, whitish black circle. It startled me out of my reading for a moment, and I couldn't figure out what it was. I'm still trying to figure it out and may ask around. 😊

I've too, see little tiny lights, some white, blue, yellow, mostly for me it's white. I remember reading somewhere it's your spirit guide trying to get your attention, or even a spirit (maybe a loved one?)
Mine began when I started hearing people after my panic attacks (my connection with the otherside must of shifted to "better" after... It was my guide, and now I've been hearing spirits) then I've been noticing around that time I noticed those little lights, I don't think it's anything to be worried about, I have ringing in my ear and I sometimes feel like I'm moving when I'm completey relaxed (people say it's some kind of ear disease...I've been tested with my ears, nothing wrong!)

So I think it's nothing horrible:) If you were to go to some non-believer in spirits and stuff, they would pretty much scare you with diseases when your fine!
