Orbs ~ Opinions, please....

I hope everyone's Christmas was filled with magick and love! We woke on Christmas Morn to a skiff of snow. Quite a treat this far south!


Hubby and I spent Christmas Eve sitting in front of a roaring fire sipping our hot toddies. I decided to take a few pictures of the fire - and ended taking a lot of pictures because of the 'orbs' that were in most of the shots. I took over 40 pics and all were taken within an hour's time frame. I am sharing some of the better ones with you here. (Click on a photo to enlarge it.)






Now I know that orbs are generally caused by dust or moisture particles. And I am sure that some (or maybe all) of these 'orbs' are just that. But some do appear to "glow" brighter than others. I wanted to share the pics with you and get everyone's opinions of them. I did some research on the web and found conflicting info about telling dust orbs and water orbs from spirit orbs. Of course, I don't think anyone has any definite answers. I welcome all thoughts.....

Wow ~ The orbs over the lamp look beautiful. I choose to believe the orbs are spirits of our loved ones from the past letting us know they're still near , maybe they are dust particles floating about :).

Sounds like you had a wonderful Christmas , sitting in front of a roaring fire , relaxing with the one you love.

~ Be Blessed ~

Looks like you had a lot of company!

Wow! I'd say that your cozy fire and relaxing room is VERY appealing! You must be doing a lot of things right in your home!

Are you familiar with Marzel's The Play of Light and Shadow blog? http://theplayoflightandshadow.blogspot.com

You should contact her, and show her your photos. She does some ghost hunting, and could give you some experienced insights into your orbs!

I'm still in awe of the number of them!
Thanks so much for sharing your photos!!

The spirit of Christmas past, present or future??
No matter what they are or what caused them, these are really cool pics.

Tres interesting! Your photo's look like mine from when I was standing outside in the blizzard last Saturday taking pictures! What a lovely Christmas Blessing for you, inside & out! I hope yours was a very Merry day!

Suzie said...

Jeanne, please let us know what she thinks. I'm very interested in what she has to say about your orbs!

You must have some great energy in your home! I definitely thing some of those are too large/bright for just dust-particles!

Looks like SOMEONE had one toddy too many... just kidding!

I think your cozy fire and good vibes might have attracted a few "guests"

very interesting post. I've never seen "orbs" in pictures before. There are so many in your pictures. I'm going to go back and look at some of my pictures.

I think a lot of these appear too large and bright for mere dust particles. I suspect you had some visitors on Christmas Eve. How exciting!
