Orbs Everywhere!

There are lots of orbs above this large meadow!

Sometimes you can feel the richness of the earth and the vitality of the natural world around you. I don’t feel that when I’m downtown, but I can feel it a little in my back yard. It feels strongest when I’m away from the city, somewhere with more plants than people. (As an Amazon Associate, this blog earns a small fee for any purchase made from links in this site, and I appreciate your support of this site.)

You can see three rather large orbs here. One is in the small tree on the left, another above the blue water pump, and another on the right almost at the edge of the photo.

My husband and I recently camped in northern Wyoming, and the area had a wonderful feeling to it.  I could feel that the land was richly nurtured by the nature spirits/elementals in the area.

Above the camper, between the trees, as lots of orbs. Not just white, some are a light blue, yellow, or pink.

Some would call these nature spirits leprechauns or fairies, but the camera and I always see them as orbs. Sometimes I see larger, colorful energy balls that are likely to be something else like a spiritual entity. I’ve been reading about nature spirits, trying to strengthen my connection to them. For a basic primer with a distinctly Celtic viewpoint, I recommend Danu Forest’s Nature Spirits: Wyrd Lore & Wild Fey Magic.

A broader review of nature spirits is found in The Deva Handbook: How to Work with Nature’s Subtle Energies by Nathan Altman. He takes a world-view of nature spirits/elementals and describes them as a type of angels that minister to the Earth and its plants, animals, and minerals.

I set out one evening and was able to capture some orbs with my camera. It took a while to figure out what combination of flash and settings would show me the orbs I knew would be there. I’m sharing the best ones (for now) here, although I look forward to perfecting my technique and coming back with better ones!

There is a large orb above the tree and to the left. Another orb is to the left of the tree, near the ground.
