What are ghosts and orbs?
Orbs are believed (by many) to be ghosts in the form
of balls of light. They are life forms that travel in groups and are believed to be the human soul or life force of
those that once inhabited a physical body here on Earth. Psychics claim to talk to them on a regular basis, and ghost
hunters encounter them quite frequently. It is said that they are those spirits that have willingly stayed behind because
they feel bound to their previous life or previous location for whatever reason. Because of this obsession, they tend
to become similar to a psychotic human being. It should be said that the majority of us, when we die, proceed gladly
and willingly to the next level of existence after saying our quiet good-byes, which means we are off to the spirit world.
Then again, as stated, a select few elect to stay behind because of a refusal to move on. Apparently, the longer they
stay behind, the harder it is to find their way to the next level, which again, is the spirit world.
Ghostly orbs are the most photographed anomalies caught
on film by ghost hunters and are quite photogenic (when they want to be). They can be completely transparent or display
themselves in a bright, solid form. It is not hard to capture them on film in their circular form. It is theorized
that ghost prefer the form of an orb (ball of light) because it takes less energy, thus being the mode of choice among the
ghosts. The consensus is that small orbs take up the least amount of energy and apparitions and other full shapes take
up the most. In the colder part of the year (those months being October through February), it seems that ghosts
tend to find it easier to take on shapes other than orbs. That's when there is the most static electricity in the atmosphere.
It is also believed that they are able to draw our own energy when needed. We've listed these ways, but there are obviously
many ways for ghosts to draw energy from the atmosphere and environment. It is also believed that ghost can draw their
energy form electrical and battery operated devices.
There are other theories concerning orbs. We
have, in the past, heard such theories that orbs might simply be nature spirits or airborne protoplasm, as you would find
under a microscope, but far more advanced.
If you're wondering, ghosts are normally harmless
for the most part and have relatively no desire to bring harm to anyone nor do they have much of an awareness to act as such.
Ghosts, however, have been known to disrupt the lives of those that they effect and play pranks and move things about.
To state it plainly, they are actually limited in the activities that they are able to carry out in their frame of existence.
Non-human forms, as well as, evil spirits and demons, who have never had a body, have additional powers and have the ability
to sway our thoughts and tempt our reasoning. This is why Ouija boards and other similar devices should be SHUNNED!
They have the ability to open doors into other realms of existence and can attract evil or bad spirits. If you
are experiencing what you consider to be the effects of an evil spirit or demon in your life, then it could be the location
where you are living, but you must also consider your lifestyle as well. In other words, how you are living or the activities
that you involve yourself in may inadvertently be drawing them to you.
We should also mention a little more information
about spirits. First of all, as we have alluded to earlier, ghost and spirits are not quite the same. Spirits
are capable of continuing a full existence on the other side with their full mental and emotional facilities intact,
unlike their counterpart the ghost. You will most likely not encounter a spirit on a ghost hunt as you would
a ghost. When they are detected, it is believed that their appearance might be in the form of ectoplasm mist, as
well as a full bodied apparition. They are permitted to visit on occasion and even communicate a message
when they have permission to do so, but for the most they will not be picked up on any ghost detection devices or be photographed
by any cameras. Many believe that we have spirits assigned to watch over us, and that may be very well
be true, but you won't normally detect them unless they have a special purpose in making their presence known.
In other words, spirits (not ghosts) seem to have a finer spirit tissue that is for the most part undetectable.
Other types of ghostly phenomenon are the vortex
(funnel shaped appearance) and the oplasm (it has a misty or foggy appearance), also known as omist.
These are often picked up on film and video as well, but are much more rare.
