Orbs are controversial in the paranormal community, but some stand out as being particularly significant, especially when they appear self-illuminated. You may see these spirit orbs with your naked eye or capture them in a photo or video seemingly appearing or moving with purpose. Analyzing the size and color can help you discern the spirit orbs' meanings and if they have a message for you.
Spirit Orbs Meanings by Size
Smaller orbs versus larger orbs may have different meanings. Why does size matter? Because the size may indicate how much energy a spirit has to manifest and thus create an orb of significant size or density.
Large orbs indicate more energy and may demonstrate:
- Intense emotion
- High frequency spiritual energy, such as Divine energy
- Higher degree of spiritual evolution
- A ghost or a lost soul
Small orbs contain a lower frequency or less energy. It's important to recognize that some orbs may be caused by natural phenomena. Small orbs may be caused by water particles and not supernatural energies. Smaller spirit orbs may also indicate:
- A low frequency spirit, nature spirit, or elemental
- A natural phenomenon that's not related to the spirit world, such as dust or light artifacts
13 Spirit Orb Colors and Their Meanings
Spirit orbs differ from ghost orbs in that, generally, their meanings focus on messages from Divine spirits or the way a spirit such as a guide or angel can manifest, while ghost orbs always tell you something about the human soul that is creating the orb, such as a mood or message. Orbs may come in virtually any color. Since light is visible energy, and colors are created by light's vibrational frequencies, you may be able to determine either the meaning of a spirit orb or what type of spirit it is by its colors.
