Spirit Orbs

  Now, there is so much skepticism on the topic of spirit orbs, and with good reason. First off, let me state that spirit orbs DO exist. What they are made up of exactly I can't say but it is firmly believed by many, myself included, that it is an orb of energy created by the spirit, that can be captured by digital photography and seen by the naked eye. Yes it can be seen by the naked eye despite popular belief that it cannot, but that doesn't mean that it will be. I won't say that it is rare, because every medium, clairvoyant, psychic, and person is different. I believe that everyone can experience an orb differently, see it differently. As a matter of fact, it might not just be an orb that a person may see, but a sort of shimmer. This is harder to explain unless you deal with it personally. It is almost as if the spirit is trying to manifest itself but cannot do so completely, instead it emanates a shimmery look.
   Orbs can be any size, whether it is the size of a quarter or the size of a baseball. They can appear in any color, emanate different types and strength of light, they can move erratically or with purpose. That doesn't really help my case but I'm going to be honest. Furthermore, not every orb you see in a digital photo is a spirit orb. I do believe that many people exaggerate or try to see something when something isn't there. Most of the time, orbs in photos are dust and other particles in the air that reflect the flash. Which makes it that much harder to prove. The best way to prove an orb is a spirit orb is to catch it on film, moving. Which is difficult.
A personal picture, this is NOT a spirit orb, it is dust. Not every orb is paranormal

   However, I have seen orbs without the use of digital photography . One was about the size of a tennis ball, it shone gold and it glittered. I could feel a presence but I'm not sure who it was. It seems to be attracted to my sister, it follows her and she sees it much more vividly and much more often. I am much more accustomed to the shimmer that I spoke of before. In a corner where there is no light and nothing to reflect light, there is shimmery look. It's fuzzy and it glitters as well, as if flakes of glitter were free floating. I see those much often. I see them in homes, businesses or just on the street. I do not know for sure why it is that they do this, maybe they just do not have enough energy to manifest completely.
     Are there any photos that you feel ARE spirit orbs? Or any orbs that you might have seen and would like to share your story?

Spirits like Attention

      It has been a few days since I have written, I apologize, the holidays took over :-)

        Today I'd like to share some of my experiences with spirits who mean no harm and do not really speak to people. Instead they make themselves known by acting out in ways that you can hear them or see them physically. What do I mean by this? Spirits who act out for the sake of "making noise" are spirits who just want attention. There is no purpose or message involved other than making you aware that they exist. For example, In my sister's home there is a spirit who has the tendency of opening and closing doors when you are alone in the house. I could be downstairs and I would hear footsteps going up the stairs and the door slamming shut. How do I know it is a spirit and not just a draft? In order to make sure I wasn't just hearing the neighbors I tested the spirit. When I was alone, I went upstairs and closed all the doors, making sure the latch clicked. The doors could not just be pushed open, the door knob had to be turned. Then I sat against the far wall that faced all three doors. About an hour later I heard the footsteps again, it suddenly felt cold and the hairs on my arms and neck rose up. I didn't see any physical manifestation of the spirit but I heard the footsteps go to the last door, the guest room, and saw the door open and slam shut. It was a little alarming but I'm use to simple things like this. My sister heard this happen in her home numerous times, to the point where it no longer alarmed her or surprised her.
        Another experience that I had was when I and my closest friend were house sitting my sister's home. We experienced the spirits call for attention twice together and separately we experienced different things. But as for the two we experienced together, the first time we were alone in the house, upstairs in the main bedroom. I was sitting on the floor and my friend on the bed, and we were discussing sightseeing the following day.  The door to the room swung open very slowly, as if someone was hesitant to walk in. We both looked at the door open all the way, and we both knew that it was a ghost because the door was completely closed. The other occurrence was also in the bed room, we were in bed talking, about to go to sleep. The lights were out and the room was in complete darkness. Suddenly, the far end of the room lit up, we both sat up and saw that the computer had been turned on. Most people question how do we know that it wasn't just on a screen saver, and the mouse slightly moved? We know it wasn't that because it was a lap top, there is no mouse. Furthermore, the laptop was completely shut down and to be turned on, the power button had to be held down for about 5 seconds. Since we were in bed, who else did it?
       Since I was young I have seen numerous doors and cabinets open and close. I've heard many footsteps and many small things have been moved out of place. But one instance that did scare me however is something that would happen at my friend's house. There was a ghost of a little girl, and while you were sleeping she would slide out the keyboard of the computer and slam down on the keys. You would be startled from sleep and when you looked at the direction of the keyboard, you could see her for a split second before she ran out of the room.

Has anyone else experienced this?
