Beginner Concepts · Elementals and Orbs

Seeing Orbs!

orbs
There are three large orbs several feet across as well as some smaller ones. They are probably easier to see on a large screen.

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. 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.

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 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 are so many orbs floating above this meadow! The flash over-exposes the grass, but it makes the orbs visible.

I was not compensated for reviewing these books; I just simply wanted to share what I enjoy.

See the orbs between the trees? There are so many!
