Have You Seen the Angel Orbs - Spheres of Light?

My Personal Story of Being Visited by An Angel Orb

I was visited by an angel orb when I was 4.

The bright, luminescent orb was in my bedroom. The room was dark, the light from the large round orb had awakened me. Strangely I recall not being scared.

The Brightness and the Blue of the Angel Orb

The light was very bright - brighter than sunshine. It has a slight blue hue which is hard to describe - almost like a white so very white it had blue shining through.

Future Foretold

The bright light spoke to me and told me not to be afraid that someday I would need open-heart surgery. The orb reassured me I would be fine.

Major Surgery

10 years later that image and those words of encouragement were with me on December 20, 1976, when I had open-heart surgery at Mayo Clinic.

Meaning of the Color of Orbs


Inventor of the Heart-Lung Machine

"Dr. John Jay Osborn, an inventor of the heart-lung machine that made open heart surgery possible, died Friday of complications following a fall. He was 96 years old, and a longtime resident of Belvedere."

Angel and Orbs and Major Heart Surgery

When I very little, perhaps 4 years old, I had an usual experience with a bright orb in my dark bedroom.

I had only one very large orb in my room. The brightness was whiter than any white I have ever seen. And a feeling of unbelievable peace came over me. I still to this day can see that orb hover and move slowly down the wall.

The orb didn't "speak" but I heard a thought telling me that I would have open heart surgery but not to worry - I would be taken care of and everything would be fine. That was 1966, 10 years later, I had open heart surgery and just as I was told, everything was fine.

That appearance of brightness, that advanced warning helped me throughout my life and carried me through a terrifying surgery. Ironically, the first open heart surgery of that type was completed on my birthday - 9 years before I was born.

Angel Songs

The song I love is the Randy Travis song. He was the answer to my prayers. "I believe there are angels ...they come to you and me in our darkest hours to show us how to live, us with a light of love....

The three videos to the right showcase beautiful songs about angels. The last video, to me, appears to be too real to really be real.

Congenital Hole in Tommy's Heart Surgically Healed

The evening of June 23, 1958,"Tommy," an 8-year-old boy, was operated on at Stanford Hospital, observed by a Bay Area television audience of 1.2 million. Dr. Gerbode repaired the congenital hole in Tommy's heart while Dr. Osborn's heart-lung machine took over for the boy's heart and lungs and pumped oxygenated blood through his body.

Don't Think Those Stars Don't Align - Under Your Scars

Under Your Scars

This song "Under Your Scars" reminds me of my angel orb that visited me long ago.

Under Your Scars by Godsmack

Do we make sense, I think we do
In spite of everything that we've been through
Oh and you say black and I say white
It's not about who's wrong
As long as it feels right
Don't think those stars won't align

Under your scars I pray
You're like a shooting star in the rain
You're everything that feels like home to me, yeah
Under your scars, I could live inside you time after time
If you'd only let me live inside of mine
Live inside of mine

Wish you were here
Right beside me
So I could watch you sleep
Hold your body closer, breathe you deep
And everything feels broken
When you're not next to me
Would you still be you
If we weren't we

Under your scars I pray
You're like a shooting star in the rain
You're everything that feels like home to me, yeah
Under your scars, I…

Angels Walk Among Us

God's angels walk among us. God wants us to feel his love. To those who are weak - he will give strength.

God's Strength Given

God will never allow us to carry more than we can bear. Great burdens are allowed by God and we will be given the strength to go on.

Seek God and Ye Shall Find

If you are burdened, ask for God to come into your life. If you are burdened, quiet your mind, humble your heart and tell God how much you love him.

God is our Father and he loves you and I very much.

I pray that you ask to feel God's love reach you. I was very moved when I watched this first video and saw the familiar angel orb. While I only saw one, you can see the similarities of all the orbs.

God bless you and your family.

Various Explanation of Angel Orbs

One explanation of angel orbs is they are mentors, ancestors, or others who have lived on earth with us. Another explanation which is stated to be "most often" - angel orbs are a manifestation of ascended master who possess a high vibrational energy.

For a better explanation, let me quote from a website called

"Sometimes angel orbs may be the spirits of your ancestors, and people who once lived lives on Earth, and who are now continuing their journey of soul growth from the spiritual realms.

But most often, angel orbs which are seen in the physical, or manifest in a photograph, are very high vibrational beings like the Angels, Ascended Masters, and advanced Spirit Guides of Love and Light."

Christian View of Orbs

The other view of orbs is the Christian view of orbs which I can more closely align with - if it weren't for my personal experience. However, the scientist in me says the orb I experienced may have been nothing more than a dream of a 4 year old little girl. And yet, the knowledge - the advanced knowledge that strengthened me is nothing short of the grace of God giving me the courage that I would need when I was 14.

So in all fairness, here is a Christian perspective:

"There is a logical explanation for orbs. Orbs are almost always photographed 1) indoors, 2) using a flash, 3) on a digital camera, 4) with a low-resolution lens. These facts have led many to conclude that orbs are, in reality, dust particles floating between the camera and the subject of the photograph. The theory is that these airborne particles reflect the light of the camera’s flash. They appear blurry or transparent because they are out of focus; they are not visible to the naked eye because they must illuminated by the flash. Other small particles in the air, such as pollen, rain, or snow, can produce the same “orbs.”

Our belief in the supernatural does not come from photographic “proof” but from the Word of God. The Bible is our guide. Whether or not orbs have a supernatural origin does not change the fact that a Christian is to love God fearlessly, keep his eyes on Jesus, and be filled with the Spirit. “The one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world” (1 John 4:4)."

Daily Devotional to See the Angels Among Us

I used to have angels throughout my home. Then I came to the realization that I was using those as a pretense. Decorating with angels was not praying, not praising God - it left my soul empty.

Now I devote more time each day to feel God's love. I have learned that my relationship with God, my trust in the risen Lord, the holy spirit is the goal moment by moment. I have learned through wisdom that I must seek the strength of God through active prayer and an open heart. Not an open heart as in surgery but an open heart to listen to the word of God and to seek to follow Jesus's teachings.

My motivation is to connect each day with God. To see his glory in a child's smile, a new garden leaf, a selfish gesture. To read the Bible, to memorize Bible verses, to participate in my church family and to pray at each and every meal.

There are angels all around us but we must be silent an listen for God's guidance, hear God's voice and see his many miracles that walk among us. That is the lesson that I learned from the bright luminosity of our universe. A photo of an orb, a rendering of an angel cannot replace a spiritual experience of the joy of knowing that Jesus loves us.

Today I saw 2 the black or clear one and the White one date 17/08/2017. from what i am reading they seem to be Angels or Celestial beings.. I just wanted to ask if theres a life purpose in seeing these or are they just Gods way of letting me know he is there ....Also 2 of my friends have seen them in their apartments one in a photo and one a friend cant explain where it came from...Can anyone tell me what usually happens to people who see these orbs. I guess Im looking for purpose in my life and God has started to show my friends and I these Spiritual beings.

I love your hubs! So glad I have found you. I too can relate with your mourning of a home. I have moved too many times in my life and look back at my homes as lost friends. God is working and his ministering angels are truly here.

God bless you and your family.

How appropriate that I found this article on "Be an Angel Day." I thank God for His ministering angels who are there to do the work of the Lord to carry out His plan. Blessings

Your heart was open and you understood. What a wonderful experience.

Life is difficult and I believe those who are shown Jesus or a saint or an angel have a difficult road and God is calling to them in a special way to remain close to him.

They say God will not give us more than we can bear and with an angel above your bed, God is surely watching over you.

God bless you and your family. You are very special in God's eyes to have given you a glimpse of heaven.

I woke up to a blue angel hovering over my bed last night but I wasn't afraid... Which confused me because in the Bible they always say do not be afraid..

ALL4JESUS (author) from USA on March 28, 2012:

Beautiful prayer.

You are right - we must always ask that we cause no pain - we forget that. And seeking his trust so that we do not fear evil is what God really wants of us - he will always there waiting for us to ask.

May the lord be with you and your family.

Thank you so much for your beautiful prayer.
