Orb update

Remember these?

I ask an amateur ghost hunter, MarZal of The Play of Light and Shadow, about the Orbs which appeared in the pics I took on Christmas Eve. (Spirits are known to visit favorite locations on auspicious dates)
She told me that in her experience, she usually does not see Orbs with her camera except where there might be spirit activity. But she was concerned about the air movement caused by the fireplace stirring up dust. MarZel went on to tell me that when wondering about the validity of Orbs as Spirit Energy, I need to keep in mind the 'feeling' of the House and if there has been any other sort of activity there.
The paranormal experiences in this house are more subtle than in many houses we've lived in. We find coins in odd places, shadows or movement can be caught out of the corner of your eye, and the most noticeable is the feeling of comfort that people get upon entering our house.
Personally, I like to think of these as Spirit Orbs and not dust particles. And that maybe we had visitors on Christmas Eve.

Jeanne, my old house, built in the mid 1800's, has continual dust in the air, which is evident on every surface, just minutes after I waste my time dusting. With duct work which probably hasn't been cleaned since it was installed back in the 40's, crumbling plaster dust, and cat hair, I still don't have orbs in my photos. So I prefer to think of yours as not particles put out from your fireplace, but Spirits, loving your atmosphere, and energy SO much, they all decided to show up at the same time to celebrate the season with you! :-)

I like to think of them as visiting Spirits as well. :0)

And I know what you mean about wasting time dusting! I dust about once every blue moon or so! LOL

I still prefer to think of them as visiting spirits. ;)
