The Veils Are Thinning!

What are Orbs?

  • Are they beings that have crossed over?

  • Are they our loved ones trying to reach us?

  • Are they spirits, faeries or beings from other planets?

  • Are they messengers from another realm or dimension?

Orbs have been showing up in photographs worldwide.

They appear out of nowhere and just as quickly seem to disappear.  They are everywhere; in your home, both inside and outside, when you are alone, at events and in the stillness of nature.

My initial experience with “orbs” was when I purchased my first digital camera.  I teach a training program called “The Power of Intuition”.  On our graduation day, I was taking pictures of my students.  I found the camera was slow in readying for the next picture so I traded it in.  To my surprise, when I finally went to my computer to view the photos I noticed many orbs, but I had no idea what they were.  As I zoomed into these orbs I noticed many geometrical shapes.  These orbs were visible throughout the pictures taken that day.  I did not have any success with orb images on my new camera.  I was fascinated about this phenomenon and began my research.  I discovered that “orbs” have been appearing in photographs for some time.  As I scanned through my old pictures, I found many that had orbs. I never noticed them before even though I had seen the pictures many times.

These orbs are showing up in photographs, especially those taken with digital cameras.  The digital cameras are by far preferable to film cameras for orb photography because the digital camera CCD is considerably more sensitive to spectra outside the visible range than ordinary film.

What does that mean? It means that cameras (especially digital) are now picking up phenomena that exist in different parts of the light spectrum than what are normally seen with the naked eye. These phenomena are manifesting in different forms, but one of the most commonly seen in photographs are round glowing spheres of light called "Orbs".

I then learned that I could program my camera to take orb pictures with intention.  I continued to discover that sometimes images that appear to be orbs are often lens flares or dust particles.  But there are many other pictures that reveal orbs that are clearly something else.  After viewing thousands of pictures when researching, as many others have, I discovered that there is much more going on.  Especially when I witness several different cameras taking an image of a person or place at the same time and discover that they all show the same orbs - the same size and in the same location on the photograph.  The more I set my intention to photograph them, the more they appeared.

Traveling with Orbs

As I traveled on my World Tour, it was fascinating to see the orbs showing up in my pictures.  I noticed they would often appear at sacred sites and especially where there was music, laughter, dancing and with children.

Upon my return to Canada, I was thrilled to discover “The Prophets Conference” offering an Orb Convention being held in Sedona Arizona. It was not that it was a convention of a gathering of orbs, but rather a collection of individuals from around the world, who like myself, met in Sedona to find out more about this intriguing phenomenon.  WOW!  What an amazing time we had.  It reminded me somewhat of the movie “Close Encounters of the Third Kind” where the characters in the movie became obsessed and were led to a mountain where they were then to experience this close encounter.  At this conference, we shared in this curiosity.  Before, between and after the lectures we often gathered in groups sharing our personal pictures.  (Some of these are in the photo gallery.)

I had the pleasure to speak with one of the presenters Miceal Ledwith, who has an amazing collection of orb photographs, written a book titled The Orb Project and has tremendous knowledge on this subject.  According to his research, the orbs travel through portals and wormholes without incurring any damage.  Due to their molecular structure and their efficient design, they possess the ability to travel at incredible speeds.  They are intelligent free flowing plasma and their circular shape encapsulates their energetic forms.  They have their own protective shields which can withstand extremes of heat and cold.  They are pure sentience.  They understand everything you say and do because they are formed of all the sentiments, clairvoyance, clairaudience and clairsentience, of the absolute geocentric orbital revolving system.

The result of careful analysis of Dr. Ledwith’s data in the study of orbs, leads us to believe it is possible that the orbs, through fluorescence, produce from within themselves a light that at least in part must belong to the near-infrared spectrum. If a process of fluorescence aided by the attraction of free electrons through ionization is what enables orbs to be photographed, then orbs must be electromagnetic in nature and most likely are energy fields of some kind.

The orb phenomenon is real and cannot be explained away with such suggestions as raindrops, fog or dust particles or pollen in the air, lens flair or digital processing errors.  Orbs sometimes form Hexagonal shapes which give clues and allow us to assume that their images are not due to the light from the camera flash being reflected back to the camera, as is the case in ordinary photography.  The orbs must generate a light from within themselves. This light most likely comes from the process of fluorescence triggered by the photon from the camera flash, which can also be aided by an abundance of free electrons in the atmosphere.  This can also occur in rainfall or with the use of an ionizing apparatus or strobe.  The types of orbs which appear in these conditions must be electromagnetic in nature.  The colour of the ionizing radiation that they emit is most likely an indication of the existence of the frequencies to which they belong. This indicates proof on the physical level that these are not simply “frequencies” but realms of existence as solid within themselves as our physical reality is to us.  If this is correct then it must be asked whether we have physical proof that these orb entities, if they are not beings of the physical universe we inhabit, actually belong to other realms above this one.  There are most likely orb forms that are not electromagnetic in nature but belong to a torsion field.  The known effects of the torsion vortex on the shielding of gravity and bending of the time-space fabric, will be central to a deeper understanding of this new reality.

The Phenomenon of Orbs!

Colours, Shapes, Dolphins and Spirits

We spent three days at the Convention listening to many other speakers sharing years of research findings and discussing the phenomenon of orbs (spherical objects) showing up in photographs. The focus was specifically on the spheres, that when taking a closer look, actually consist of geometric shapes.  Some even appear to have faces showing up. Some believe these to be communication manifestations - spirits, intelligences that are part of what I believe to be “the veils thinning” and what may be an “unfolding adventure of our future”.  The examples shown at the seminar were fascinating.  There were pictures taken before and after communicating with these orbs.  In other words, people would take pictures of the orbs around them.  Pause, ask a question such as do you have an intelligence, then take more pictures and this group of pictures showed the orbs changed shape. The next photographs were all triangles and many more showed up as hearts.

They can also show the fetuses of the babies about to be born – these features are very clear and defined. In fact, JZ Knight, who was one of the speakers at the Convention, has a wonderful selection of orb photographs and had an amazing picture of one such fetus showing up in an orb above the mother-to-be.  When the baby was born it was identical to the image of the fetus in the orb.  JZ also shared that she had someone in her group ask if they (orbs) were okay with having their pictures taken and they responded in the next group of pictures in the shape of cameras.  As if to say…”take more pictures.”

They have the ability to change their colour - pink one moment, blue the next - and change their shape – hearts, triangles, squares or in the example above as cameras.  They can also cloak themselves when not wanting to be seen.

On one of our evenings, after the talks were completed, our group met in the open space outside the hotel.  We all began clicking our cameras to see if we were to capture any orbs that might be present.  I am sure the other guests had their own opinions of these strange people roaming about taking pictures in the dark.

As I was taking pictures, I noticed a green translucent light, like a small green tube, just above a tree. I did not see the light with my naked eye, but it showed up on the photo in my camera.  When I continued to take more pictures in the same area, it continued to move.  When I zoomed in on this tube of green light, it consisted of a series of orbs.

(Some of this series is in the photo gallery.)

I facilitate the “Communing with Dolphins” retreats in Hawaii.  For the past several years at the retreats, we noticed many orbs showing up in our photos; especially when we do our sunset forgiveness ceremony at a local sacred site.  On one occasion, while my picture was taken, I asked (telepathically) if an orb would show up next to me.  In the next picture there is an orb above my head.  This seems to now often occur.

I also see many orbs around the Dolphins when we are in the water swimming with them.  The dolphins are incredibly intelligent beings who remind us to connect with our intuition and open to Love and higher vibrations.  There are often unusual lights surrounding them.  They are highly sensitive and their sonar vibration alters our DNA.  Research indicates that those who swim with dolphins experience a phenomenon of Bliss.  In this altered state supreme sensations of joy and peace occur.  This seems to attract orbs.

My sense is that these are intelligences we may not understand in this realm.  I feel that the veils are thinning and allowing other dimensional beings that we could previously not see now become visible.

I would like to take a moment and share a short story.  My father, who I loved dearly, crossed over in October 2001.  He was an avid smoker, albeit would not smoke inside the house and instead go outside.  After his passing I would often smell cigarette smoke.  This would be when alone in my own home or when walking deep in the forest with no one else nearby.  Often it would be in times when I really needed emotional support.  One of these times was when my dog, a Dalmatian I call Caspar was lost. This experience is now part of my collection of stories from my book “Dolphins, Whales and Magical Tails”.  The story is titled “Dogs have angels too” and is currently on my website -

I shared this story as my mother and sister joined me at one of my Communing with Dolphin retreats in Hawaii.  It was my mother’s birthday during the retreat so my sister and I commissioned my dear friend and co-facilitator of the retreat – Dolphin Dave Jimenez - to paint a picture for her.  I know my Dad would have been beside himself and very excited for her to receive this gift.  As my sister and I walked toward my mother who was sitting on the lanai at our Oceanside retreat house with David and two other participants, we all smelled cigarette smoke.  In my heart I knew my father was present in Spirit.  A couple of months later, during one of my Intuition seminars, I shared this story with my class.  I had just given a presentation on orbs.  As they were working on an “intuition” assignment I got a strong smell once again of cigarette smoke.  Others noticed it as well.  Two of the participants got out their cameras and took a picture of me.  In both their cameras there was an orb above my head.  When I viewed this picture on my computer screen I noticed what looked like a face.  My sister then photo shopped a picture of my Dad next to the orb and his features lined up to the face in the orb.  (This picture is in the photo gallery.)

The Phenomenon of Orbs!

By Hannelore - Part 4

Again, what are the Orbs?

Again, what are orbs?

They appear in a variety of shapes and sizes, predominately circular. Some believe if they are circular, they often carry a message of peace.  The ones that are octagonal as well as square or diamond shaped are believed to bring scientific ideas. It is believed that orbs bring us messages, study who we are and the planet and/or are the carrier of Souls.

They are sometimes seen as tiny pinpricks of light, at other times they are extremely large globes of light and every size in between.  Some are energy streamers – photons of light.  These carry knowledge of truth and the light of that particular entity.  Streamers are often seen as a light green colour, although they can be other colours as well.  They differ from orbs.  In a unique fashion they are orbs, yet they free flow in a different style, while the majority of circular and other shaped orbs prefer vertical descent and ascent to this planet.  This is what I saw and took pictures of at the Convention that I mentioned earlier.

They are believed to be here to introduce us to expanded information systems.  They are emerging super-sensing systems that connect through our intuition and have a commonality with advanced civilizations and are showing us the pathway for contact.  They are even known to be related to a family of native people who call themselves “The Ancient Ones”.

Our higher consciousness has been familiar with Orbs – we have reached a time when we are bringing that awareness into our temporal world.

According to Universal law which states “Like attracts Like”, orbs interact with humans and animals who possess and vibrate with the same frequencies as the orbs themselves.

There are orbs that carry the Souls that are pure radiant happy faces and have a peaceful feeling about them.  I shared my experience earlier in this article of one such face I believe to be my father.

Orbs have been appearing for the past decade.  Photographers all over the world have been witness to this curious phenomenon.  As digital cameras began to replace conventional film cameras, they have been showing up under many different conditions.  Although you can train yourself to see them, and many do, they are not often seen by the naked eye.  Miceal Ledwith suggests that you take digital pictures in one area at the same time of day or night for 30 consecutive days.  You are then allowing your brain to accept that this is a reality.  They appear more on your pictures when taking a flash photograph at night; although they will appear in daytime photos as well.  They respond to high frequencies generated by flute, different musical scales, octaves, singing and dancing.  They resonate with the music of the spheres in the higher dimensions.

As William A. Tiller, PHD – a professor Emeritus, Stanford University, states,

“if the experimenters bio-field is strong enough to ‘condition’ the space and the camera, and if the orbs are a life-form of the R-space domain, they should be photographable provided technical conditions hold.  This could occur if they are sufficiently information entangled with us.  The orbs are certainly not creatures of our space time world.  This type of photographic evidence should be accessible with even higher dimensional life forms under the appropriate circumstances.”

Scientists, those studying traditional science and psycho energetic science, have known about orbs for a long time.  They have come to the conclusion that the appearance of orbs in and around our planet at this time is not accidental.

There is an increase in energies directed toward our planet.  This is heightening our awareness and our intuition and elevating our human consciousness.  So what we did not “see” before is now becoming seen.

I see this phenomenon as communication manifestations that will assist us in unfolding the adventure of our future.  As our consciousness awakens we see that this consciousness actually manipulates information.

I believe there is a dimensional shift occurring.  The planet is going through major changes as we too, have accelerated in countless ways externally as well as internally.  Science has observed the change in the Sun’s charged particles and their influence on our earth’s magnetic field.  This causal effect occurs also in our magnetic fields and is the impetus for change.  There is a shift happening. Our bodies, emotions and very essence is preparing for these new paradigms.

Dr. Berrenda Fox provides evidence of DNA and cellular changes and has proven through blood tests that some people have actually developed new strands of DNA.  In his findings, Dr. Fox states “there are major changes, mutations that haven’t occurred, according to geneticists, since the time we supposedly came out of the water.  Several years ago in Mexico City there was a convention of geneticists from around the world, and the main topic was the DNA change.  We are making an evolutionary change, yet we don’t know what we are changing into.”  Extracted from an article “The Bigger Picture” by Suzanna Thorpe-Clark – “We are being changed physically from carbon-based beings with 2 strands of DNA into crystalline beings with 1,024 strands of DNA (eventually), because only crystalline substances can exist on higher dimensional levels.  It is not just Humans that are changing but all life forms are changing.”   We are shifting into Crystalline Bodies!

In our ancient texts and in many prophesies, we have been told about these changes and the time prophesized is now.  Our bodies, our emotions and the very core of our beings are opening to these changes and possibilities.  Many believe, according to the Mayans, that by 2012 we will be entering a “new world” – a new way of being.  We are exploring a new paradigm of existence.

I believe this shift into higher dimensions is part of the Phenomenon we are witnessing with the presence of orbs.  In my talk “Time Speeding up” I go into greater detail of the above information and share many ancient prophesies.

Orbs presenting themselves in our photographs may well be a significant piece of the puzzle to embrace the reality of Spirituality.  They cast a new light on the philosophical/spiritual/scientific realization that “All is One”.
