There is an interesting website called ThoughtCo.com that has a page on ‘Spirit Orbs.’ They invite their readers to send in photos of orbs together with a short text describing them. What particularly caught my attention was the picture of a small kid with an Orb directly over his head. This is how I picture the overself hovering above many of us. I am not sure if I am authorised to reprint that photo here, so I suggest you have a look at the site for yourself:
The text at the start of the page reads:
“Mysterious balls of light, called orbs, will occasionally show up in photographs. Skeptics and believers have different theories on what these may be. A skeptic will say these orbs are merely light reflections from the flash of your camera or from lamps or other lighting in the room on airborne dust particles. But other people are open to the possibility that these orbs are actually light-beings (ghosts, angels, or spirit guides).
“Barb Huyser, paranormal investigator and author of Small Town Ghosts, has gone on many ghost-hunting expeditions with camera in hand attempting to capture ghost orbs on film. Her book documents her explorations. Also, there are other people who see spirit orbs around them without the use of cameras. Stewart Pearce, creator of the Angels of Atlantis Oracle Deck chose to have the angels depicted as orbs on the cards. Pearce explains that the archangels have always shown themselves to him as orbs. He says the angels are "quanta light emissions formed directly from the Source." “
