What Do Sparkles (and Orbs, and Spirit Lights) Look Like? By Melissa Leath
Kids Growing Up Psychic Series
“Some smaller children see them during the daylight, even outside in the Sun. Others see them swirling in patterns, sometimes in different colors. Yet others see them only at night.”
Spirits, angels, and guides show themselves to us all the time. But we don’t always recognize their presence. Adults especially have a difficult time seeing spirit energies. But the New Kids are so wide open that they see these energies easily.
Parents usually report confusion and fear concerning their young children seeing such things. The kids are usually seeing “sparkles” and orbs at the age of three or four, and it lasts at least several years. They view the experience as normal, and may not say anything special about it, thinking that everyone sees them.
The phenomenon gets stronger, and by the time they are eleven or so, it is very common to them. Older children, can be ridiculed, accused of making up the whole thing, and shy away from sharing the experiences. I have known some children that run and jump to try and catch the sparkles.
It may seem like a strange anomaly. But seeing Sparkles, Orbs, and other Spirit Lights is as normal as can be. But I imagine having your child describe something to you that you have never seen would be difficult to understand – and believe. Let me assure you, that if your child is seeing something very special – and natural.
What Does This Energy Look Like?
Sparkles can be seen by people as small flecks of dust, iridescent particles, flashes of light, blinking clear lights and something called “static,” such as the static or fuzz you might see on the television when the station has gone off the air.
Many have said they see them better at night, in the dark. While others (especially, smaller children), see them during the daylight, even outside in the Sun. Others see them swirling in patterns, sometimes in different colors. These people occasionally see black or dark sparkles, but not very often. Sometimes they spin around and blend together. Usually, it is seen with eyes closed as well as open.
Have You Ever Seen Fuzz and Particles?
After going back into my own childhood, I realized I have always seen sparkles. However, I would not have called them that. To me it was more like hazy fuzz. If I could describe it now, I would say it was the substance that matter is made of. It looks like manifesting energy to me.
Just What Is This? Lifting of the Veils
Now that the veils are lifting from our awareness, and the energies are opening up to other dimensions; we are able to recognize things so much more. The separation between the earthly realm and the spiritual realm is beginning to open up and blend. The thing is that the Sparkles (or energy fields) have always been there: just as the aura around a person is always there, but many people cannot see it. Only after they have been instructed as to what it is, and how to see it, do they really recognize it.
The way I understand, the particles that present themselves like Sparkles, Orbs and Spirit Lights are very visible. But it is not distinguished by the brain. It seems to be part of another dimension and not something that we are accustomed to seeing, so it does not register in the brain as being real. Only after you understand that it could be a possibility can you begin to identify it.
Another way to think about it is the spirits of those who have passed away are always around us. But we might not be able to see them. Sometimes, you can see movement out of the corner of your eye. You turn your head, trying to see it physically and it disappears. It works the same way with Sparkles.
Some children believe the Sparkles are angel lights. That could be. Also, there is a new resurgence of a phenomenon called “orbs”. They are large, round balls (at least larger than the sparkles) that float around, usually at night. Quite often they show up in photographs. They seem to represent spirit energies or entities of one kind or another and like to be around nature.
So the thought that Sparkles could be angel lights makes sense. However, I am given the information that the Sparkles are an element of energy that is “arranged” by angels in a manner that we can appreciate, and possibly connect with. So they are not really the angels, but are sent by the angels.
We All Have the Ability to Experience Sparkles
If you close your eyes very tightly and rub them with your hands, then open them, you see sparks of light. This is a natural affect due to the pressure of pushing on the eyeball. But with energetic or spirited Sparkles it works the other way around. You must lose your focus, or not wanting to focus on anything.
It works better when you are in your bedroom at night after you turn off the light. I usually close my eyes as soon as the light goes out, because when I was a child, I could see these particles moving around, forming designs. It scared me so badly that I learned to close my eyes to keep from seeing it.
Here is a great experiment to try:
- After you get in the bed at night, turn out your light.
- Lay in your bed with your eyes open.
- After your eyes get accustomed to the darkness, everything will have a haze, or film covering it.
- You might even see it moving around.
Yes, you might even think you are going crazy! But believe me, you are not. The more you play with this concept, the more you will experience.
Yes, I see a beautiful pattern and they are sacred geometrical shapes. Very intricate and even the smallest pattern within the large pattern is geometrical. When looking at the design from a large viewpoint, I see bigger shapes made from the smaller shapes. – Eleven year old.
Here is a list of the way some kids see these energies:
Orbs or Bubbles
What if you don’t want to see them?
You and your child are always in control of the things you allow in your energy field. Ask your guardian angels and spiritual guides to help you with this. Tell them nicely that you don’t want to see the sparkles all the time. Then plan a special time that you could see them, only when you want to. Being empowered with this beautiful gift is important. After all, you are in charge of what you want to have around you. Also, if it just gets too much at a certain time (say, at bed time) ask the sparkle energies to stop showing themselves to you then. Be nice and polite, but firm.
The purpose of this article is to give understanding that we all see things. Sometimes we don’t acknowledge them, or might ignore them. But our children are able to see many things and interact with them. It’s all fine. It is normal (not paranormal). Blessings.
** While explaining Sparkles and other spirit energies, it must be understood that I am referring to the spiritual concept of seeing an energetic substance – not a physical vision, or eye problem. And I encourage anyone who thinks their situation might be physical in nature to see a medical professional concerning it. **
