I love this book – and I LOVE the DVD. If you are going to pick up any book about the paranormal, read this one FIRST before you read the others.
Here is the synopsis of the book on Amazon.com:
After literally stumbling into orbs appearing as bright as light bulbs in photographs he was taking at a spiritual retreat, Dr. Klaus Heinemann immediately sensed that he was onto something profound. There was no choice but to convince himself that his notion was on solid grounds. Heinemann looked at thousands of pictures he had taken earlier, and thousands more would be taken to test the hypothesis that these light circles are nothing less than emanations from Spirit beings.
Dr. Míceál Ledwith had a similar experience after the orb phenomenon was first made known to him through the teachings of Ramtha. He began an intense and systematic study of orbs in all sort of situations, day and night, and in all sorts of atmospheric conditions, in order to discover all he could about their nature, the situations in which their presence could be most easily detected, and what implications they might have for our understanding of our own place in the cosmos. To date, he has amassed a collection of well over 100,000 images.
In The Orb Project, Ledwith and Heinemann present their fascinating discoveries, along with practical tips that amateur digital photographers can use to photograph orbs and properly distinguish them from “false” orbs that are really dust or water particles. They offer guidelines on deciphering the orbs’ various patterns, features, and characteristics, based on their extensive research.
As Dr. Ledwith points out, once you develop a keen and sustained interest in photographing spirit entities, some quite interesting things begin to happen: the brain stops censoring these images, and you can begin to see with orbs with the naked eye — in more color and detail than is visible to even a digital camera.
Ledwith and Heinemann also explore communication with orbs and what their existence means to our lives. The implications of a realization that we are “surrounded by a cloud of witnesses” are enormous and incredibly hopeful for the world at large.
This is the DVD you should watch
The Paranormal Explorers went to a house in a small town in Alberta to help a family out who were experiencing what they felt was disturbing paranormal activity. I (Paranormal Rona) went down into the basement with my nifty Bell+Howell S7 Night vision camera. Now usually people who have spirits acting up in their house think there is something negative or scary equated with these ghosts. Not really the case, 99% of the time.
In the basement the Bell+Howell recorded this video. If you watch carefully you will see what appears to be a very large orb come sailing out of the door in the first 6 seconds of the video. It then splits apart into 2 orbs. Those 2 spirits were an older couple who were hiding out in the basement. They had never left the basement and were a little embarrassed that I had found them. The spirit that was causing the trouble appears right after them. It’s quick so watch very carefully.
There are other spirits, orbs or spirit balls in the video, but they are what I call “in and outs”. Everyone has at least one spirit or more coming through their house, apartment, condo, at one point in the day. All they are doing is seeing what YOU are doing. Then they leave and go to the next place.
They are not there to bother you or haunt you. Some could be family members who have passed, but usually they are strangers and they are just interested in your activities and conversations.
Look over my right shoulder, above ‘Lil Demon guy prop, in to the back of our hearse and you will see an extra passenger (besides Bone-a-parte) riding behind me. It has a strange skull structure. We are in a parade. Just wanted to be a part of it, I guess.
Throughout all of our years as investigators of ghost/spirit phenomena, we have seen a LOT of orbs, in pictures, video and some with our own eyes. They come in different colours, brightnesses, different locations and we have found human and animal faces in some of them.
Usually, orbs have a roundish shape to them with an aura around the outside and a rather nucleic mass looking centre. But there are exceptions. Like these orb pictures:
Dandelion-looking orbs that have spokes or lines emanating out
Skull shaped orb
Weird Uneven Shape
Paranormal Rona at a spiritual gathering with Orb friend
The Dandlelion spokes picture does look like it could be some kind of seed spores, right? Well, we took dandelion puffs and other type flower/tree fluff and did lots of photo experiments with them. None of the pictures looked like these. NONE. Otherwise I wouldn’t post it here.
If you have any unusual orb pictures, please send them into us. We would love to see them!!
