Spirit Energies’ Caught on Camera

‘Orbs’ as they have come to be known, have been around ever since the discovery of the photography. However, Orb phenomena has really taken off over recent years since the advent of digital cameras. The reason for this seems to be that the process involved in capturing the image with a digital camera is very sensitive to light spectrum beyond that which the human eye can see. It also seems that the typical digital camera construction with the flash being close to the lens is also a factor that aids the capturing of orb type phenomena.

What are Orbs? Some orbs are due to natural physical phenomena like dust particles or moisture droplets in the air. Orbs can be formed if such are positioned in front of the lens when the flash is used. It is the construction and sensitivity of the digital camera that gives rise to these phenomena that were rarely seen with older cameras.

It is the same characteristics of digital cameras that lend themselves well to being manipulated by subtle spirit energies and produce similar phenomena. In some cases I believe that spirit energies capitalise on natural phenomena and enhance the image with their own manipulation. When I say spirit energies I mean a spirit entity in the vicinity that is organizing their energies with the intention of being captured on camera. I’m quite certain that the only spirit orbs we see are those that want to be seen. Of course some say orbs are living entities from another dimension that are trying to communicate with us through our cameras. There may be truth in this. Others say that orbs are fairies and angels; I’m happy to believe that as well.

How do we tell if an Orb is due to natural phenomena or the result of spirit manipulation? Naturally occurring orbs are actually quite rare. Even scientists say that it is only a particular type of dust particle that will produce an orb, and it has to be in the right place in front of the camera for an orb to be created. If you take flash photos in the rain you will see naturally occurring orbs caused by the raindrops that fall close to the camera lens.

If you avoid rain and dusty condition the orbs you capture on camera will most likely be spirit energies. Especially when they appear in photo after photo without fail. I have taken dozens of photos in a session and all have had orbs in them. In the photo of my friend, sitting and using the pendulum, enlarging the image show that there must be a thousand orbs visible, some quite large and others just points of light. So many orbs could not occur naturally in dry, dust free conditions.

Tips on taking Orb photos. Any digital camera will take orb photos. Always keep the flash turned on. (Orbs can appear without flash but this is rare) Try taking photos outside at night. Ask orbs to appear! It’s a good idea to carry your camera around with you for a couple of days before the experiment so that you charge it with your psychic energy. Always have the camera set on the finest detail setting; this will give you better enlargements.

Extra proof of spirit Orbs. Is when they appear in special places, like the orb that appeared in the centre of my forehead ‘my third eye chakra’ and the one that appeared in the TV screen! After I asked it to! More proof is when the same orbs appear in different photos. Orb sequences I call these. Try and spot the orb sequences in my photos. There are some selective enlargements amongst the photos that show more orb detail.

Communicating with Orbs. I have noticed that orbs seem to be trying to communicate with us when they appear. Like the day I took my camera along when I went for a game of pool with friends. Ball sized orbs begun appearing! Some even on the pool table as though they were pretending to be balls!

Communication with orbs is very much in it’s infancy. I have begun to initiate communication with orbs and have noticed what I think is their attempts to communicate with me. Sometimes they give me insights into where they will appear. If you can make some progress in this area and find new ways of communicating with orbs it will be real ground breaking stuff.

Have a go. There are orbs waiting to be photographed! Don’t let them down, they think it’s fun! And you will too when you start catching them.
Good luck; and may the Orb be with you!!


An excellent book and serious Orb study is:

    Can’t wait to get my camera out!

  2. by Lisa, on December 17 2008 @ 2:36 pm


    Go for it and if you get some good shots, send them to me and I’ll post them up.

  4. by Lisa, on April 2 2009 @ 3:42 pm


    Thanks for your message. I’d love to see your photo, just send it to and I’ll take a look.
    Don’t get ‘freaked out’ by it. It isn’t there to do you any harm. Most likely the the opposite is true.
    I will look forward to seeing it.

    I am a retired lady….and people are thinking I am crazy because I am seeing these “orbs” on my security camera… room mate verified what I saw….are they friendly”?

  6. by Lisa, on April 11 2009 @ 11:06 am


    Yes they are friendly, they will do you no harm. Orb Caught on Security Camera – did you see this video? You can compare it to your own. If you could manage to send me a video of your orbs, it would be really interesting.

    Hi Liz

    All Orb’s are high vibrational by nature, I have never heard of anyone being harmed by them.

    Orb phenonema of a low vibration does exist but very rare. when they appear in photo’s it is in the form of a ‘Dark Disc’. I’ve got hundreds of Orb photo’s, but no ‘dark discs’

    I was asked to give healing to someone who was told that he has a portal in his bedroom, through which entities were coming and giving him possession type experiences. I took the camera along but no ‘dark discs’ appeared in the picks. I try and visit this person every week or two and have done for about 4 months now. I take the camera along every time, Orb activity was almost non existent at first but after several months of healing sessions they are beginning to appear in his room, he also says he feels a lot better. He is facsinated by the Orb pictures and sees this as evidence of helpful spirit influences in his room. This will also reinforce his link with positive spirit influences and strengthen his own defences against ‘psychic attack’.

    I suppose I am using Orbs in a therapeutic way; mmm interesting.

    I have also found more information on Orb’s that adds to our knowledge. ‘the nibiruan council’ web sight. under the ‘galactic Federation’ section. There is a lot of good stuff here actually that ties in with everything else we have been looking at lately.

    I wrote to you on April 11th, I mentioned I am seeing moving “orbs” on my security camera at night…I am still seeing them…I actually was able to use my digital camera to take a picture from my security camera…it shows up….on the lower left of the picture near the tire of my car…
    Some nights they are more active than others…some are brighter than others….their actions are baffling.
    I am going to see if I can borrow someone’s “cam corder” to be able to show you what I see.
    Thank you for allowing me to share this with you.

  9. by Lisa, on May 2 2009 @ 2:11 pm


    Are you able to upload the photos to your computer and send them to me. I would like to see them and I am sure others would as well.

  10. by Shar, on May 8 2009 @ 7:50 pm


    While taking a walk through the Jorden River Trail where they are constructing the new Swamp Land on 2 different evenings I have captured an ORB in two different locations. One over water and one where the orb is behind a tree. I was with my husband who also took pictures at same location and did not capture the orb on his pictures. Where could I send these pictures for verification. Please contact me at my email address. Thank you Shar

  11. by Lisa, on May 8 2009 @ 9:14 pm



    I would love to see the photographs, but only from a personal point of view, and that of my readers (if you gave permission for me to put them on this site). But I also suggest that you post them on a forum that is experienced in this area. One that I recommend is Angels and Ghosts. They love seeing new photographs and some of them are actual ‘ghost hunters’ so you will find lots of experience on there. If you do post them on Angels and Ghosts I would appreciate it if you could let me know so I can have a look as well.

  12. by Shar, on May 9 2009 @ 9:28 pm


    Thank you. now all I need to do is locate a computer so that I can transmit my camera prints to the web. when I have completed this I will send you an email. Thank you for your quick response. Shar

  13. by Lisa, on May 9 2009 @ 11:06 pm


    Thank you. I will look forward to them.

    Interesting looking sight I might try and get found to it one day.

    It’s difficult to get a definitive opinion on Orb’s; in fact there is non. Certain things in Orb photo’s offer evidence that the image is not being produced directly in front of the lens by dust or moisture, such as appearing from behind an object, or if the orb moves and changes direction in the photo, or if the same orb appears in different photo’s ext ext.

    the book mentioned in my write up is the best guide I have come across so far.

    do beware of dust; fog; rain; moisture; frozen breath; and the like as these do produce naturally accuring orb phenomena when the flash is used. And yet ‘Orb’ energies sometimes use these naturally accuring phenomena as a vehical for their own manifestations. so you can see why it is difficult to pin them down.

    I was extremely skeptic about orbs…until yesterday. A friend noticed a shpere in a picture I took. I just thought it was a partical and thought nothing of it. But when I really looked close, I could see a recognisable image of my father around the orb. I must’ve stared at it for hours trying to make sure I was seeing what I thought I was seeing. I showed it to my cousin, and she saw it right away as well. My father crossed over January 11th this year. Being a very Spiritual person (not religious…I don’t beleive in “man-made” religion) I have been desparately looking for “signs” that he goes on. I have been studying theories and books on what happens when we die, etc. My father and I were close and he was a naturalist and new much about science, space, nature and believed all was intertwined. I know that this picture was meant for me to see, and I am thrilled to know that we do go on.

  16. by Lisa, on June 5 2009 @ 2:56 pm


    This is fascinating. I would love to see the picture you mention. Spirit, especially those close to us when in the physical, usually find a way to contact us. What makes this even more compelling is that your cousin saw the image of your father as well. Many people long to contact their loved ones after their death, but unfortunately this longing can sometimes be counter productive as it can raise barriers against this connection. Usually because they are still very much in the grieving process and anger at their loss. I am glad that you have so obviously opened yourself to receiving spirit and have accepted it for what it truly is – your father letting you know he is there and OK. Have you had an very vivid dreams which contain your father? I ask this because when you are in deep sleep, your natural guards are down and it is easier for them to communicate. If you have not, I would not surprise me in the least if he contacts you this way sometime in the future.

    Love and light to you Amy and congratulations on hearing from your father.

    Hi Amy
    What a beautiful story you shared with us. Orbs are wonderous beings, they will try and help out wherever they can. Interestingly; I have a friend who’s Father is in Spirit and whenever he comes close to her she SEE’S Orbs! again they are coming close to try and aid contact and communication between my friend and her Father. It’s important to try and feel good about your Father in Spirit now, this will raise the vibration and make it easier for him to draw close to you. He will have some fascinating tales to tell about life in Spirit if ever communication between you can be developed. Keep taking those Photo’s.

  18. by Michele, on June 16 2009 @ 8:54 pm


    I have some fantastic pictures! I will send them to you also. Then we put our own security system in the house and all day long we get pictures of these orbs sent to our email (my husband and I). The videos are amazing. I’m at work right now, but I’ll do what I can to get back to you with these!

  19. by Lisa, on June 22 2009 @ 8:20 pm


    Thank you Michele, if you do manage to get some pictures uploaded I am sure we will all enjoy seeing them. Sounds very interesting.

  20. by TJ, on December 8 2010 @ 7:19 pm


    Hi, i was trying to take a picture of my puppy but as they often do he wandered away at the last second. however instead of a blank backdrop like i had expected there is a definite orb in the picture, i just wondered if there was anywhere i could post this picture to get it verified as ‘real’ or ‘fake’. there have been quite a few odd things happening in my house since we moved in which is odd as we moved in weeks after they had finished building it. is it possible that the house that was previously here had history??

  21. by Terry Schon, on January 11 2011 @ 10:06 am


    Hi, Interesting story, thanks for that. I would love to see your orb pic. My email not working well lately, I can recieve emails but I can’t send them so if you send me your pic I will respond here – – I can reassure you over one thing, I have never known orbs to be anything other than a positive spiritual influence, so whatever activity is in your house you can be sure it is friendly. I look forward to seeing your orb pic. In the mean time try taking some more and see what happens, the more you try taking orbs the more you will attract them, and then you will start to notice things about them that seem to be a repeating pattern. Also try connecting with orbs in your photo’s psychically to find out about them; this is what they really want you to do. You will then start finding your own verification.

    hi, my daughter took pics of the orbs in my home,I never seen something like that

  23. by Lisa, on June 1 2011 @ 10:51 am


    Priscillia, We would certainly be interested in seeing any photos you may have.
    Best wishes,

    Hi Lisa
    I have taken some photo’s with many, what I think are orbs, in them the photo’s were taken in the British Legion and I would really like someone else to look at them.
    But were do I send them to could you give me an E-mail address

    Thank you


  25. by Lisa, on June 21 2011 @ 9:20 am


    Thank you for your email Charles. It is always nice to receive contact via my website.

    You can email me the pictures to me ( and we will look at them and then contact you with our comments. Although as you mentioned they were taken in the British Legion I would be surprised if there were not some energies around!

    Would you be agreeable to a few of your photos being shown on the site?

    I will look forward to receiving your photos.

    Best wishes


  26. by Christine Reynolds, on February 25 2016 @ 11:28 pm


    I have a lot of pictures of orbs that are always on or around my cat. Ever since I have been taking pictures with my digital camera in 2013 till now. I have too many too post. I will send some here.

About Author

Since a very early age I have been interested in anything spiritual. First of all it was spirits (ghosts), as most children are curious about these anyway. I was fascinated. So needless to say, from the age of 8 years old I have been investigating, practicing and playing with all things spiritual. Yes, I did say playing, because although I do not suggest messing around with things in the astral planes, there are still many fun things you can do and develop at the same time. More of that in my future posts. As I am now in my early 40’s, you could say I have many years experience, although I will be the first to admit that I am not an expert on any one subject. Just a life long student of learning. Have fun and if you want to contact me just click on contact me and complete the form. I will then get back to you as soon as I possibly can. Love and Peace to you all Lisa
