The Different Colors of Ghost Orbs and Their Meanings

If you’re interested at all in the paranormal, you’ve probably heard the word ‘orb’ before. Orbs are thought to be ghosts or spirits coming to earth in the form of light, trying to communicate with the living human world once again. These small spheres of transparent light have gone under much scrutiny and debate when it comes to whether or not they are truly ghosts or spirits, and everyone will have their own opinion when it comes to their validity. Once more, everyone will also have their own thoughts and opinions on what the different colors actually mean.

Orbs are typically found in photographs and videos, but there are several other reasons why this tiny circle of light might appear. Film photography can create an orb due to the coloring of the camera lens as well as dust specs, rain, bugs, or other spots found on the camera lens. When it comes to the case of orbs found in videos, this can be caused by infrared lights reflecting off of certain objects to create an ‘orb’. For this reason, many do not believe in ‘orbs’. However, when it comes to orbs found with the naked eye- especially in places known to be ‘haunted’- orbs are more believable. But what do their colors mean?

Clear Orbs

A clear orb is commonly known as the orb that signifies communication. The spirit in this orb is trying to talk to you. They are trying to tell the human, living world that something has happened in the specific location in which the orb is found. They want to move on from the event, but they need to talk to the human world to try and get passed it. For a believer, it may be important to try and communicate back with this orb so they can move on to the spirit world.

White/Silver Orbs

There are two different reasons why an orb may be colored white or with a silver hue. For one, white and silver is known to be a connection to a higher power. That being said, white or silver orbs can be a sign that the spirit of this orb is still in this plane and needs help to move on to the next life. On the other hand, white or silver orbs can be a sign of protection to everyone in the area. This may offer some peace to those in the human world who witness this type of orb.

Black Orbs

The color black is usually associated with darkness or negative vibrations. A witnessing of a black orb is an important one to note, as the spirit may be warning you that the location is unsafe or has a high negative energy. You would be wise to stay away from a black orb, especially if you feel unsafe the closer you get to it. Black orbs, even brown orbs, can be a sign of evil- although that’s not always the case. Still, it is best to use caution when coming near the black orb at all costs.

Red Orbs

For most, the color red is filled with extreme passion, deep anger, and intensity; however, in the spirit world this is NOT the case. Paranormal investigators believe that red is actually a sign of safety. If you see a red orb, this spirit may be trying to protect you and keep you safe. They are not to be afraid of.

Blue Orb

Unlike red, blue is a very calming and welcoming color; and that is true into the spirit realm as well. Blue orbs are said to be a spirit that is very calm and happy. They are visiting this world with bright, positive energy. They are not to be feared. Some paranormal investigators also believe that blue orbs are brought to this world to help guide the living.

Breaking it down a bit, light blue orbs are a sign of tranquility, pilot light blue offers shielding, and dark blue is supposedly a shy spirit with a survivor spirit.

Green Orbs

A green orb is simple: it is the presence of a human spirit. Unlike other orbs, which may represent a spirit that never touched this world in the first place, a green orb was likely an actual human at one point. They are happy and visiting this world with the intent of love and happiness. Green orbs are also very close with nature.

Yellow Orbs

The majority of paranormal investigators associate a yellow orb with ‘caution’. If you see a yellow orb in a certain location, it may be warning you to proceed with caution- and that’s exactly what you need to do. If you feel disturbed or unsafe, leave the area immediately.

Lavender Orbs

Lavender orbs are incredibly peaceful and at peace with God. These orbs are typically just visiting and observing and are not there to offer anything to the human world, good or bad. They are simply enjoying the world.

It is important to remember that everyone has a different meaning when it comes to orb colors and what they truly mean. If you see an orb, use your own distinction to determine what this orb is trying to communicate with you, simply using the list above as a guide. If you feel a positive energy from an orb, don’t be afraid of it. However, if you feel any sense of negativity coming from the orb, it would be best to simply stay away from it and try not to make contact or get too close. As humans we are able to feel energies from spirits, so use that when you happen to come across an orb in your day to day life. Remember: this is JUST a list of what most paranormal investigators believe!

I really couldn’t tell what color the orb was because my cabinet was black but I saw it out the corner of my eye it was just floating above the floor moving slow and when I looked directly at it , it disappeared so it could have been clear, black or even gray I just could tell what does it mean

  4. My daughter has often experienced spirits trying to communicate with her , she is 34 years old now and ican remember this started for her when she was about 4 years old.
    Her latest experience has made her question what is happening to her and how she can channel her gift to understand what is happening .
    Last night my daughter Statesboro that she had several Golden Spirits enter her bedroom and try and communicate with her, she states that she felt like they were telling her that something was coming or going (she wasn’t sure)
    She then said that she woke fully up as she was gasping but could still see the spirits.
    She said she did not feel frightened by them , just startled.
    My daughter and I are wondering what this could possibly mean .

  6. I saw a mix of colored orbs in my dream. I remember seeing green, blue, yellow, red orbs. Possibly other bright colors too. I was watching them in the sky then they came shooting down like a saucer. They landed in a field near my mom’s house and I was thinking it was UFO’s so I watched them from a distance. They descended into a field and stayed there. Then I saw what appeared them leaving orb shaped cement statue looking ones aside of them. Any meaning you can think of? I can translate dreams and this one has had me thinking.

  10. I took a video on snap chat of my 11/2 year old twin daughters bedroom yesterday morning. The lights were off in their room and the door was cracked enough to take the video. There was an orb that started out yellow but then got to be bigger and turned orange and was bouncing around like a ball. It made me feel good to k ow it was orange and they have a spirit watching over and protecting them but now I’m paranoid about the yellow color orb. How should I take this?

  12. Have you come across any mention of ‘pink boxes?’ My mother recently passed of Clearcell Carcinoma, an untreatable, incurable form of cancer, and when she started to get really sick, she told us about a black shadow man who was trapping a little girl, and that we should never open the pink box. I’ve tried to look it up, but I don’t know if it’s something created by the pain meds she was on, or something only she saw because she was passing.

    • Thank you for sharing your thoughts and feelings. Determine what your knowledge of the pink box is. Regardless of its purpose, allow it to influence you in a positive direction. Treat everyone in your life with kindness and compassion. Have a great day, Lou!

  13. I need help and answers. My Uncle passed away on Monday. I almost got in two accidents on Monday night and one Tuesday morning from icy roads. Last night (Tuesday) as I was sleeping I was woken up from my son in bed next to me crying. As I opened my eyes there was a yellowish golden or orange orb above me. It happened so quickly I was screaming and crying trying to get it away. It disappeared and after that I couldn’t fall asleep and my mind won’t let it go. Someone please help with some feedback. It really upset me. Thank you.

    • These dreams are reflections of your emotional connection with your late uncle. Allow these dreams to influence you in a positive direction. Treat everyone in your life with kindness and compassion. This will honor the memory of your uncle. These orbs should also influence you in a positive direction. Have a great day, Sam!

  14. Odd things happen in my home. But I won’t go into that part now. As this page is orb related. I recently took several pictures while on my back patio. I found a white orb with green around the white. And white with a purple to lavender color surrounding it. Any ideas what these are?

    • These orbs are reflections of the orbs that are mentioned in the article. Read the article for detailed information on the color of each orb. Allow these orbs to influence you in a positive direction. Treat everyone in your life with kindness and compassion. Have a great day, Alyce!

  15. What are your thoughts… Will good and bad orbs be found in close proximity?
    Or I feel as if there is a negative energy in and around my home. Will orbs be able to enter into an area where there is negative energy?

    • It is possible for both positive and negative orbs to be near each other. Each orb is a reflection of a different influence. Negative energy should influence you to act in a positive manner, as this will reduce the impact of negative energy. Positive energy should influence you to act in a positive manner, as this will increase the impact of positive energy. Have a great day, Alyce!

  16. I’m reaching out because I can’t shake what used to happen to me at this place I used to live. I would have the grossest, most terrifying, most disturbing, vivid nightmares while living there. Some nights I would wake up abruptly for no reason feeling panicked, absolutely frozen still, with no warmth to be found. Even under my body on the mattress was freezing.
    Anyways, long story longer…
    One day, my husband thought it would be funny to take a picture of me when I was taking a nap during the day. He said I looked dead because of the deep sleep state I was in. He looked back on the picture and there was a giant orb over my body. He took another picture from the other side of the room and it was still the same giant orb hovering right over my body.
    This thing was huge. It was red and got lighter in color as it got to the center. In the center you can see a bright squiggly thing.
    What are your thoughts on this? Would love to hear them.
    I will say, since moving, I never experienced anything like that ever again. Have always been pretty sensitive to energies. Whatever that was isn’t bothering me anymore though.

    curious about it though.

    • These orbs may be manifestations of positive or negative energies. Regardless, allow the presence of these orbs to influence you in a positive direction. Treat everyone in your life with kindness and compassion. This will ensure that positive energies enter into your life. Have a great day, Jade!

  17. I have 2 pics of me on a hiking trail that I love. Both pics have a blue orb right by my hand. These pics were taken 2 months apart. I truly believe it is my dad who passed 10 years ago…who is walking by my side.

    • Thank you for sharing your insights and experiences. You may be right. This orb likely is a reflection of your father’s energy. Allow this orb to influence you in a positive direction. Treat everyone in your life with kindness and compassion, as this will ensure that you honor the memory of your father. Have a great day, Lori!

  18. The other night I was at my friends house just taking pics from her porch towards the outside. It was dark. It took pics the 2 nights I was there. I got orbs from each night. 1st night u got the one but it changes colors from gold to blue to white then back to gold. Each was taken almost in the same spot but never lost its place. The gold colored one has a face. The second night I got a green one around the same area and got a pic with blue orb and a green orb. What do think it means when you see one that changes color and to see together at one time next to each other? Believe me I have been trying to debunk these pics and can’t find anything that makes sense. Plus one morning while I was walking taking pics. I got a pic of a civil war soldier and possibly a native American in the picture as well

    • These orbs are reflections of numerous influences in your life. If you are skeptical, then take this time to determine why you are skeptical. There is no reason to believe something, but if you have experienced it, then attempt to understand why you experienced it. Please feel free to share your insights and experiences in the future. Have a great day, Lyndsay!

  19. I’ve been going through a lot of stress recently. I took my dog for walk down to small lake and it was peaceful but quite dark. I took few photos. When I got home I noticed 2 light blue orb with halo ring marks around on all photos I took. If I press and hold the photo these orbs are flying across the pond. As the photos are dark they really stand out. I checked other photos but only by the lake. At one point there’s a small cluster. Is this the lens or something more? If dust would they be flying across the lake? Thanks

  21. My wife and I witnessed three small smokey black orbs manifest in front of our eyes last night. They hovered down from the ceiling to eye level. We weren’t scared, but we were very curious. I tried to close my hands around one but it darted away and remained hovering. Then, one after the other, they rose to the ceiling and disappeared. We’re still talking about it. I’d like to see them again. I felt a sense of relief seeing them as if finally something in my life made sense.
