There have been countless documented occurrences where orbs with faces have been recorded throughout time and the idea can feel unsettling to some.

When you see a face with an orb in it, you will notice your emotional state and how heightened it is in the moment. A spirit needs a lot of energy to showcase a face in an orb and they need to take energy from a source. When the photographer is the source there is a powerful connection between the two.

We’ve all found ourselves reviewing photos filled with bright balls of lights and wondering if we’ve captured the essence of a spirit. There are several theories regarding why these orbs might appear with faces on them.

What do the orbs with faces actually look like?

While some orbs can have faces that are so clear they looked almost drawn on, most of them aren’t quite as distinct. A lot of times, the faces seem distorted. Your weird random photos could be linked to spirit energy.

Each orb is filled with energy that has somehow become distorted. At times, you will notice facial figures in these orbs such as a mouth, eyes, nose, and hair texture. You may see only one or two of these features at a time.

Occasionally you will find hats, glasses, and other identifiable features as well. There might even be multiple faces in an orb. You never know!

If you can see orbs with faces, does that mean some of those faces could be your beloved pets who have passed away? Many experts would say yes. In addition to seeing the face of Fido in an orb, living pets can actually experience orbs as well. It has been found that cats are especially good at seeing orbs.

The reasons for you to see orbs, and especially orbs with faces, can be varied. Spirits are trying to communicate with us at all times. They are incredibly persistent and creative when they have a message for you.

They will use all the energy they can to reach out to you in a way you can receive it. They may come to you in your dreams, number sequences, coins, or through mediums. Or, they may use the bright light of an orb to send a message to you. 

When are you likely to see orbs with faces?

Orbs with faces are also known as spirit orbs. Since everything that surrounds us is energy, it makes sense that you would see orbs in places where there is more psychic energy than other places.

Actions that increase the energetic frequency for a time can also increase the likelihood that you will experience an orb. Being absorbed in prayer, worshipping, or enacting a religious tradition, are some of these actions. Being out in nature or in a historical or spiritual place may also make it more likely that you will see an orb.
