The Orbs in Your Photos in a Haunted Setting

The Orbs in Your Photos in a Haunted Setting

One of the places that spirits likes to show up is in photos. This is because the camera is able to capture things that most of us cannot see with our naked eye. These circular “light balls” are known as orbs and are thought to be spheres of energy from the spiritual realm. Many people are of the opinion that orbs are spiritual beings such as angels or spirit guides. The brighter and more dense the orb appears, the more likely it is to be Spirit, the lighter and fuzzier the orb, the more likely it is to be a dust particle.

Orbs are a recently new phenomenon that have been captured with the introduction of digital cameras in the 1990’s. They were first thought to be malfunctions by the camera makers but to this day the manufacturers claim these “orbs” to be microscopic particles floating in the air.

Orbs have been accepted, certainly in the psychic community, as real evidence of spirit presences whereby they are supposed to represent the essence, or soul of a departed spirit. From the point of a medium who can see and sense spirits, they say this a reality. I have asked people to take photos when there is a spirit present and the majority of times, at least too many to count, an orb appears on the photograph.

There is really a lot of “energy’ on William in Carleton Place. I have had a few emails from people who live on this street inquiring about the particular history of a home.  It is one of the original older streets in town that had a lot of things happen on it, so it makes sense the spirits hang around. The person that took these photos said: “They appear at different times and you always feel the energy so they advise anyone that senses the same thing to pull out a camera and catch them. In these photos there is a dog and a child and woman”.

I have the same thing happen at my house, but others have sensed them and seen them. They don’t bother me much, they bother visitors, but as several mediums on the last house tour once told me.:

“Linda the spirits are alive and well in your home.”

Keep your eyes open!
