This is in the pacific northwest. We visited an American Indian village, and we took photos inside of their homes (without going in as a sign of respect), when my husband took this photo, he thanked the native american spirits for letting us visit their village and for allowing us to photgraph their homes. And up came a few photos of orbs, which some people believe are spirits. There were MANY of them.
Here's one of the pics, tell me what you think?

That is a great pic of orbs. Too bad you can't size it down a bit so as to keep the margins from blowing out. I have some to share and I'm no good at loading pics either. There is another member who shared a picture of orbs actually it seemed to be one small orb and one huge glowing orb like sunlight. You should check that one out.

Looks like my backyard at night. lol.

The orbs/spirits are even prettier when they communicate with one another through flashes of colour, or chase each other when they are playing about.

Really entertaining.

Good photo. You could be a spirit photographer. ;p

Hi Spiritlite :smile:

An easy way to re-size photo's, either larger or smaller, and also alter the kb size of the pics is to use the free program .... irfanview.

I can be downloaded free from www.irfanview.com (http://www.irfanview.com)

It is really easy to use .... I have had it on my laptop for a while .... no issues with compatibility either.

All the pics I have uploaded to this forum, I have re-sized using this programme .... easy peasy !!

Hope this helps :D

Native wondering through the village was a peaceful experience for me, in fact I could hear the village as it was when it was original, a lot of talking and laughter and happiness, I could hear the children playing and laughing, the men sitting and talking and hunting and it was just so lovely

Most orbs are caused by water droplets, rain, snow, or dust particles in front of the lens. The light also plays a significant role in your picture.
I have taken photo's myself and have caught 'orbs', it's very easy to, yet you can't see them with your eye.
Technology can catch a ''spirit'' your eye can't see? People can also have red eyes on photo's... :confused5:

It's a cool picture, but I think it's natural.

Spiritlite
04-11-2010, 04:17 PM
There wasn't any dust in front of the lense either. Also when my husband took that photo and two others with orbs, he thanked the spirits for letting him visit their village and for leting them take photos, that's when the orbs came. Then he took photos without thanking them and there were NO orbs whatsoever, he took three at the same place and none but then once more time after not getting any-all those photos without thanking the spirits, he again thanked just to test it out and viola orbs turned up in that one, and the one after....can you explain that?
Thanks :)

The thing is, dust particles are always present and can't always be seen.

I'm trying to give an explanation.
I can't comment on your other photos, as I don't know at what time, place and weather they were made.

I guess I am able to post pictures. :tongue:

I enlarged one of the orbs on photoshop and then did a not-so-great outline of the face. The face is distorted but quite clear.

Iza,

Have you ever heard about 'matrixing'?
It's when you see natural shapes, and your mind has a tendency to find familiar images in complex shapes, or colours.

An example is the face of Mars, or seeing stuff when you're watching the clouds.

http://www.suite101.com/content/what-is-matrixing-a65446 (http://www.spiritualforums.com/vb/redir.php?link=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.spiritualforums.co m%2Fvb%2Fredir.php%3Flink%3Dhttp%253A%252F%252Fwww .spiritualforums.com%252Fvb%252Fredir.php%253Flink %253Dhttp%25253A%25252F%25252Fwww.suite101.com%252 52Fcontent%25252Fwhat-is-matrixing-a65446)

There is no 'face' in the 'orb', one could look at the 'orb' from another point and still 'see' faces.

ALL the photos we took with orbs where he said thankyou took three got orbs, didn't say thankyou took three no orbs, again said thankyou took three got orbs were at the same time, same angle same everything. I just find it interesting that thanking spirits gave orbs and not thanking gave no orbs......... Plus trust me I am an intuitive and the whole time in the village I could hear the village alive like it was with people talking and laughing and children playing and even in that particluar house I could hear many people dancing and laughing.

Spiritlite. It looks like a native American face, because that's how the mind can translate it. If the same picture was taken in India, with the same face, then our mind would not translate it as a native American. maybe it would be some 'wise' guru.
I have looked at the 'orb' and you can see more faces in it.. so what does that mean? Is it now a twin, or maybe a soul that is possessed by another soul?

These are clearly optical illusions, that we can see in any photo. Our mind has a tendency to look for familiar images in shapes and colours.

The ''spirits'' don't show themselves to us in a normal way, yet they do on camera? More likely they are dust particles.
It's also interesting how the 'orbs' in the front are lighter and bigger, showing that the light has a significant effect. (and why would spirits be subject to our light?)

Of course we are free to believe, but I also like to show you that there are other and better explanations.

Hi Spiritlite...

Yes, in a way I felt that there was something there...that's why I mentioned in my first reply about the "whole tribe". But that one orb caught my attention. I kept going back to look at it and then when I looked closer at it, that's when I noticed the face. :wink:

Oh...and I think I made a slight mistake - the orb is actually more towards the right of the photo than in the middle. :redface:

When Obama was sworn into office, and he was making his speech, did you see all the thousands of orbs above the people at the ceremony? Taken by a variety of people, how can all those people take photos with orbs in them. Google orbs and yeah some are fake but yeah spirits do in fact show themselves on photos, there are a lot out there......

Seeing ''faces'' can be explained with matrixing. I've seen many more faces in those ''orbs''.. we humans just have a tendency to look for it. Check the clouds and you can ''see'' all sorts of stuff. Or the mountains..

I have googled orbs and the scientific evidence backs up the point I am making.

While I'd like to believe there orbs - and who knows maybe they actually are - I have to agree with Chrysaetos that its dust particles and light. You can see in the bottom corner that the ground is dirt, kicking up many particles of dust while people walk through. I've been in old lodges etc. like that and you can really feel the dust and the smell of it too.

I'd like to see the other pics you have of orbs and the pics where there were no orbs if you can. :smile:


What should I look for in an orb photo?As mentioned above there is no official way to determine authenticity of an orb within a photo but here are a few key elements to keep in mine. 1. A bright orb is more likely to be real than a faded one. 2. Multiple orbs in a single photo are most likely dust motes. 3. Orbs that are bright and show a vibrating effect within the photo are likely to be real. 4. A slight trail is also something to look for in determining true orbs.

Spiritlite
05-11-2010, 02:31 AM
Um there was no one in the lodge, we were the only ones in the entire village and out of respect we did NOT enter any homes, therefore we did not go in the house, no one before us had (trust me there was no one in the park) and we took the photo at the entrance.....so no the "mud" or dirt was not kicked around, besides the earth was packed. Plus there was no smell of dust or dirt.

And if anyone wants to dispute orbs can we just start another thread I feel it's kind of disrespectful because I beleive a lot of us believe these are spirits of Native Americans and I feel that to dispute that is disrespectful to the culture, I don't know just a thought.

.so no the "mud" or dirt was not kicked around, besides the earth was packed. Plus there was no smell of dust or dirt. There are always dust particles around, which we can't see with our eyes. But a camera can capture it.

''It should be noted also that the size of the camera is another consideration in the recent proliferation of orb photos. As film cameras, and then digital cameras, have steadily shrunk in size, reports of "orbs" increased accordingly. As cameras became smaller, the distance between the lens and the built-in flash also shrank, decreasing the angle of reflection back into the lens causing less focus on small light artifacts and thus an orblike appearance.''

Believe me, I'd like to believe those orbs are spirits.
But what if they were spirits? They shown themselves not to our eyes, but to our camera? (meaning they are now subject to sceptics like me);D
And the closer they are to the light, the lighter they are. Why would a spiritual being be subject to our light? If these phenomena can be explained, unfortunately, I don't believe they are spirits.

In your opening post you said:''...which some people believe are spirits.
Here's one of the pics, tell me what you think?''

I did. We could all say that those orbs were spirits, and think we see real faces, and all agree with one another. But it's also interesting to look at it without beliefs.

Everyone is free to believe what they want, but beliefs should always be open to a challenge! :wink:

Why ? .......

You have given very reasonable explanations for the orbs, other than that they are spirits .... rain, moisture, light reflections, dust particles ..... all plausable explanations to you, and you describe optical illusions and matrixing and offer scientific evidence to back it all up, but .......

Why should beliefs always be open to a challenge ?

Debate is healthy, yes .... but only up to a point .... your point of view on these orbs as we can see, is very scientific, and you have every right to think this way. but previously you posted ..... "Of course we are free to believe, but I also like to show you that there are other and better explanations".

There are other explanations, and they may be "better" to you, but to Spiritlite and others here, not so. I am sure when she posted the orb pictures, she didn't expect to have her views on them constantly dismissed scientifically.

Can you not just accept that Spiritlite and others here view these orb pictures as being the spirits of Native Americans .... as Spiritlite said, if you want to dispute orbs, you could always open another thread.

You also said .... "I've seen more of these photo's around and I think people are too eager to believe stuff that isn't there" ...... again, your opinion ....fair enough, but it seems that Spiritlife's original joy of her post has been clouded somewhat, by your scientifically attempting to explain everything away ....

I'm not trying to have a pop at you mate .... just some observations on your posts, and for the record, I also think the orbs are spiritual in nature .... that is my personal belief .... I don't expect you to agree with me, but .... ce la vie :wink:

No initiate in any discipline, spiritual or material, ever learned without questioning -- and being questioned.

If your beliefs cannot withstand scrutiny -- how firmly rooted can they be?

Eraser it's not a matter of being disputed but constantly trying to change my beliefs that those aren't orbs just kind of put me off. I understand how orbs can form, my father was a photographer, so I understand how people can think those aren't spirits. However, to be disputed to the point where I'm feeling like I don't want to look at this post again I don't know just kind of puts me off. Like I requested if people want to debate if orbs are ghosts or dust then why not start a new thread? That's all.

She asked in her first post:''And up came a few photos of orbs, which some people believe are spirits. There were MANY of them.
Here's one of the pics, tell me what you think?''

I did. There's lots of stuff out there that can be explained scientifically.

I was also trying to find out why one would believe they are spirits.
She asked what we think about these orbs. I told her. Fair enough I'd say.

Like a few others here I have also captured a few interesting spiritual photos and all I can say is that you just know what you know.... :D:hug:

Trying to convey the significance & profundity of personal spiritual experiences such as synchronicities, astral travel, recall of past lives, clair-sentiences/cognizance/voyance/audience, connecting with Source, capturing spiritual energy in photos, etc, etc... Is like trying to tell a lady who is pregnant for the first time, what it is going to be like when she gives birth...

Besides the fact that the experience is entirely subjective, you can only explain or share so much... She will need to experience it for HERSELF to know what the experience is like and just how profound it will undoubtedly be.

What you tell her may prepare her, comfort her, unnerve her or even give her some pretty good ideas of what it may be like, but she will not know until she knows.. :)

My apologies to the guys and those ladies who haven't had kiddos... It's the mom in me talking and the quickest analogy I could make to illustrate my point. :tongue:

It's that same old idea that one accepts or allows only what one is ready to accept or allow.

Thank you for sharing your wonderful experience & beautiful picture.

Wow! You captured an entire tribe there...so many orbs! Very nice picture! :D

Thanks for sharing! :hug2:

This is in the pacific northwest. We visited an American Indian village, and we took photos inside of their homes (without going in as a sign of respect), when my husband took this photo, he thanked the native american spirits for letting us visit their village and for allowing us to photgraph their homes. And up came a few photos of orbs, which some people believe are spirits. There were MANY of them.
Here's one of the pics, tell me what you think?

I hope this works.

Hi spiritlite, Although i do believe in orbs from seeing them first hand the ones in the photo resemble the effect given by out of focus dust particles close to the lense. If you take your camera in to an old barn or garage with dusty floor, take a photo before you walk in. Then go and run around stiring up the dust and take another photo to acheive the same effect. There is a hot spot at the quarantine station here in sydney where orbs always seem to gather. What people dont realise is that it crosses directly with a dirt track that you walk across to take the photos. You can get a similar effect with heavy moisture that can be duplicated with a spray bottle.

Ive seen one red orb above my bed and many silver orbs on another occasion. My kids point to balls that appear to float around their room but i have yet to see a picture that has convinces me that the phenomonen has been captured on film.

Sorry but thats my experience anyway.

Thanks for sharing that. It was a neat pic. I've seen some pics like that before, but never thought they were anything but dust. Come to think of it dust wouldn't be round, now would it?

Looks more like it's moisture or perhaps something in the air but if they are orbs, then that's pretty cool.

The picture was taken outside of the house where the sun was shining. What was captured on film were dust motes in the doorway. Sorry.

i have photos of myself that i took on my patio one summer day, the sun put images all around me, one looked like a halo over my head, other one looked like a native chief head dress on me, than one other photo, shows a sun image of a figure of a person standing next to me, when id post them up in a mobile site forums, people would just say its my camera phone's lens making those images too, truely not believers thats for sure, in other site i found, one lady in the forums had a topic called Auras, so i posted a comment in it about my photos, she said load them up i want to see them, than she said it was my ancestors from generations back putting those images on me, one was a great great great granfather who used to be a cheif long time ago, and 2 other ladies, she said she also seen a eagle sitting on my shoulder too, so i believed her, than my camera lens not being focused right

:hug3: Spiritlite,

Its a cool photo it doesnt surprise me though, as the Native people are very spiritual

Namaste

Native Spirit--

This is kind of off-topic but since Native Americans are so spiritual, have you ever thought about the belief system that burial grounds should not be disturbed, or spiritual places--in regard to Native Americans? Wouldn't you think that would cause too many of them to remain earth-bound "guarding" burial grounds (or haunting those who disturb them)?

I know this sounds like a dumb question. I believe I've had a life and have a guide who is Native American or indigenous, but I've wondered about this often but was afraid to ask and sound insulting. That's not how I mean it.

don't know if this will work - very not picture savvy -I took the picture and drew circles - I always like to look for faces in orb pictures. i saw some in here, thought I'd point them out....

oh Wow! that is a great picture. Did you take it or do you knw where it came from?
I am not sure about the faces, cuz I have never seen them in many orb pics, but that is heavy that SO many of them are there.

Of course we are free to believe, but I also like to show you that there are other and better explanations.
Chrysaetos--

"Better" is your interpretation, not everyone's. There is a point at which the skeptic could be given "indisputable proof"...but would find other explanations. Even for those who aren't skeptics, each person has a different "set point". Some can have 999,999 "coincidences" and not until the millionth will they open their mind to some other explanation. Everyone is different. You are free to believe what you want.

BTW---There is a school of thought that says that beliefs are just thoughts you think a lot. Our societies, and science, have drilled certain repeated thoughts so frequently that you are considered unbalanced to not have the same beliefs--repeated thoughts.

Once you have a belief, you attract others who think like you, you see "examples" in what you perceive. It is --and I hate to say this New Age-y thing--Law of Attraction. You will get confirmation of your beliefs, no matter what they are.

Or, put another way, whatever you believe--is right!

The key is to allow leeway for those things which don't quite "make sense"--so that there is the possibility of change of beliefs. Otherwise, you are a closed vessel, only allowing thoughts/beliefs like your own in.

Sorry--just philosophical meandering --that will only be valid for those who already believe those things!

Namaste

You misunderstand empiricism.

Besides, this is a very old thread (saw it in subscribed threads) and I've no desire to go back to it (only to make this statement to make my point in case you want me to respond further, which I shall not). I've said all I wanted here and stick to it.

Some people say: "I'll believe it when I see it" ... others say "I'll see it when I believe it." Sing with me people, "and I saw the face ... now I'm a believa!"

Science tries to explain the unexplainable in scientific terms - I think that's the snag. However, I'm not a highly educated person and am a sleeves-rolled-up worker ... but it's working in the muck and the grit of the front lines where one can see many "miracles" -- evidence of Spirit that can't be proven in physical laws.

Just a thought. I'm going to go eat cake (sorry, I'm sleep deprived and now I'm getting punchy). But I wanted to let the OP know that belief is powerful and does create our "reality" - or so I believe! :D

I have Many photos like this one. Being a Desert Indian, when I take flash photos outside I get many dust orbs, and this is what I see here. I am able to dupulicate this kind of photo by thowing dust in front of camera when the flash pops.
