Orbs: another reality alongside this one?

2nd December, 2015 Miscellaneous

I have little doubt, for I have experienced it myself, if we truly opened our inner eyes to perceive the spiritual essences all around us we would be amazed at the multitude of presences that are there; far in excess of the odd ‘orb’ or two that our cameras capture. [David Furlong]

My attention was captured by orbs when I was in Egypt in 2013. Terrie Birch, who accompanied me, turned out to be a multi-talented other-dimensions photographer. Many of her photographs taken in the temples had orbs and shafts of light on them although Terrie had never experienced this before. It was as though something there activated her ability. I’ve always seen these spinning balls and shafts of light, part of being psychic I’d assumed. But I was surprised to find that, as soon as I took my new camera to the crystal dragon mountain with Terrie at Halloween 2015, I too could capture the effect. It felt as though, rather than simply being a digital camera side-effect, something was definitely trying to communicate with us through light. That something later made itself known as ‘the Lumi’, beings of light.

“Be a lightbearer”

I first visited the idea of orbs in the blog about our Egyptian experience in 2013 (see Light becoming and The Big P.S on my website) and I’ve included some of what I said then about orbs later in this new blog because it’ll save you the trouble of looking it up. What had set me off thinking about orbs again was a series of photos I took on the crystal mountain. I could immediately see on the camera screen the ‘pink star’ optical effect of shooting towards the sun that I was picking up. I recognised it as the soul star and causal vortex of the mountain showing itself.

But, as so often happens, it was only later when I looked closely at the photographs on my large computer screen that I realised that ‘something’ was also darting about in the series of photos I’d taken at the old mine. I wasn’t sure if that ‘something’ was a miniature spaceship, a vortex portal, or a cork coming out of the bottle. Or both!

In the next shot, its still moving, coming closer. A little more ‘solid.’











So, here’s the sequence:

As you can see, apart from the first one, they are all taken at much the same angle from the same spot, the first one was just a little to the right.

Judy HallAnd an even closer inspection of photos taken when we’d arrived on the mountain revealed the star beings, ‘the Lumi’, who then began to make their presence known and who a couple of weeks later communicated a message to be a light bearer, to be light. They were insistent that we should spread light not fear (see my Luminescence blog). The message was received just after the Brussels and Syrian bombings and a great deal of scaremongering, fear and hatred was being spread, it seemed extremely urgent. So we put out their message on Facebook. It had a disappointing number of likes given the attention some of my more frivolous posts receive. Was this apathy, or were people being overwhelmed by the same message repeated time and again from different directions? I discovered that the same message was spreading rapidly through the MBS community from various sources. Which doesn’t make it any less relevant.

The Lumi

I immediately had to buy another skull like the elongated one – who reminded me of my Egyptian Sodalite head Merit Aten. She is delighted to have a partner at last. She’s been asking for one for sometime.

Earth Star

And here’s the mountain’s Earth Star manifesting ‘below’.

I immediately set up a grid on my dining room table using the Chevron Celtic Golden Healers and the white Chevron Quartz, with Eye of the Storm and the Cradle of Humankind to assist. (see my Luminescence: be a light bearer blog).  Later it was augmented by Horace, my earth-healer skull and a Lemurian skull that was on loan from a Canadian friend so that her healing powers could be activated. This did it!

Note the beam of light that comes from the top of the Lumi in the photograph and extends down the grid. c. Judy Hall

And previously, before the addition of the skulls, I took a photo with a beam of light coming directly from the mouth of a Lumi. This picture will not allow me to crop it to go in closer. It wants to be shown in its entirety. But the light beam very much reminds me of a picture Terrie took of me in Egypt (see below).

Mouth of a Lumi

So what does it all mean?

I’m still not sure! Other than that I instinctively feel that benign energy from other dimensions is showing itself. I have no rational explanation but I am looking forward to working with it further and will be reporting on the Star Being workshops taking place around the Winter Solstice. The Lumi are very welcome to make themselves known further. They are something beyond the ETs that have been interfering in human evolution. An advanced form of consciousness that I know I’ve met before in ancient Egypt and no doubt elsewhere. Friends returned.

This is what I had to say in 2013.

I was interested to see that David Furlong had a discussion about Egyptian orbs (and orbs in general) on his website He quotes David Randell a research scientist friend of his with a long-standing amateur interest in optics who had responded to something David had said with a ‘rational brain’ explanation:

Inside a magnified dust orb

Inside a magnified dust orb from David Furlong’s site.

“The orbs you describe in the last article almost certainly do not have any esoteric significance and are probably nothing more than the result of diffraction patterns arising from the camera’s flash reflecting from microscopic dust particles in the air and generating specular reflections. It is a well known phenomenon, which is a direct result of the wave-nature of light originating in a point-source of light passing through a circular opaque aperture. In focus the image takes the appearance of a very small bright spot of light surrounded by faint set of concentric and alternating light and dark rings called the Airy pattern. Out of focus the number of rings increase producing the familiar “orbs” seen in these photographs. I suspect the reason why we see this more these days is because people are using compact digital cameras that use lenses with very short focal lengths and corresponding great depth of field. I would go so far to make a prediction, namely that if you zoom in on many of the original images showing these orbs you will see the familiar nested, alternating light and dark Fresnel rings that arise from an out of focus point-source image from interference.”

That prompted David to experiment while in Egypt himself and, although he couldn’t replicate the effect when several cameras were used together, he could do so with one. He responded from his intuitive mind:

And here is another marvel for I do appreciate the subtlety and beauty of the ‘orb’ images, produced as I now know by tiny particles of dust, floating in front of the camera lens. Surely the most powerful insight that ‘orbs’ give us is that there is magnificence and beauty in even the tiniest and seemingly most insignificant of things. We assuredly live in an awesome world. David Furlong

I couldn’t agree more with David’s comments and I know that some of the sheets of light and the ‘arrows’ and orbs that appeared in Terrie’s photos for instance (see Light Becoming and below) could be refracted light from the sun or lens flare – in some cases. But not in all. The unseen presences all around us were signalling to us that they were there helping and supporting us in our healing work. The pictures were confirmation, if any were needed. But let’s take a look at the end of Tore (who had accompanied us in Egypt) ’s nose.

I’ve blown the picture up as far as I can to the point of pixilation on Terrie’s camera phone and can see little evidence of the typical ring markings shown in the orb photos on David’s site. Tore had nothing on or by his nose that could be reflecting light and flash was not used. We were in the temple in late afternoon. So what was going on? I have no idea other than that, for me, a being of light was showing itself.

Let’s take a look at some of Terrie’s other photos. The first ones follow on from us doing a Nile healing ceremony (see Light Becoming previous blogs).

But the one below is a one-off, the light is coming from Hathor’s third eye, these are not sun beams, unless Ra was lending a hand!

Hathor’s third eye

And let’s not forget the photographs of Tore that Patricia, who was also with us on that trip took. All her other photographs were completely ‘normal’ and she’s a very steady handed lady. This was not camera shake, nor were there lights in the chamber to explain the brilliance. She was not using flash:






Tore blurredTore Light

Tore’s comment was that it couldn’t have happened without me being present, somehow I catalysed the energy. It wouldn’t be the first time. And we had done a regression to ancient Egypt – and elsewhere – the night before. I see the furthest back image on the one on the left as an ancient Egyptian in his aura.

12 April 2013

When I discussed these lights with Jane Lyle, an old friend who has seen them with her naked eye ever since childhood, as I have, she said that they were ‘a reality alongside this one.’ Yes! That’s the wording I’d been groping for. The other reality breaks through to show itself to us in all its wonder and awe-full-ness

I then had a further realisation which may – and indeed probably will – sound crazy to the modern western mind but an ancient Egyptian would say ‘finally: you’ve got it.’ Those gods are really laughing now! This time at the slowness of someone who has been occupying a rational consensual reality for far too long and ignoring the parallel metaphysical reality in which she has walked every day of her many lives. As I began Light Becoming by saying, you can be here and there at the same time. In our journey we were also travelling as surrogates for Margaret (my publisher who had mantle cell lymphoma and for whom we were doing a healing journey)’s inner Nile, the stream of consciousness that flows through her blood and her inner reality. This was why our experiences mirrored hers. As within, so without. As below, so above (see the Light Becoming blog and Margaret’s book Under Cover of Darkness, blogging my way through mantle cell lymphoma).

When I sent this to Terrie Birch she responded:

Yes. It all makes sense of course. Remember also that the 2 themes that kept emerging on our “journey” (the Egyptian one) were the as above etc etc and that of Parallel lives, Well if lives are parallel, all the experiences in them are too and if we can affect our own parallel lives we can surely also  affect others as we are affecting them in our conscious life.
Or something like that, feels like I’m not really explaining myself, it’s that I get the concept so clearly but it is difficult to explain in our “human” terms!!
We did it again, as I pressed “send” on my email I saw 2 arriving from you! We keep crossing over – is that a metaphor?

I couldn’t agree more, it is difficult to explain in our human terms but it is deep, deep wisdom with which the ancient Egyptians were very familiar!

Jane, who saw the light from Hathor’s third eye as a wing of light, ‘kind of exhilarating yet protective at the same time’; then sent me this Kipling poem which sums up the whole experience and brings it into our western world:

The Way Through the Woods by Rudyard Kipling

 They shut the road through the woods
Seventy years ago.
Weather and rain have undone it again,
And now you would never know
There was once a road through the woods
Before they planted the trees.
It is underneath the coppice and heath
And the thin anemones.
Only the keeper sees
That, where the ring-dove broods,
And the badgers roll at ease,
There was once a road through the woods.

Yet, if you enter the woods
Of a summer evening late,
When the night-air cools on the trout-ringed pools
Where the otter whistles his mate,
(They fear not men in the woods,
Because they see so few.)
You will hear the beat of a horse’s feet,
And the swish of a skirt in the dew,
Steadily cantering through
The misty solitudes,
As though they perfectly knew
The old lost road through the woods …
But there is no road through the woods.


‘The Last Magician’

The Last Magician

That evening there was a programme on t.v. about Isaac Newton in his role as ‘the last magician’ ( rather than a rational scientist – the programme ‘revealed’ his life-long interest in alchemy. It was full of pictures of light: light shafts, light whirling, orbs, sheets, swirls, deepest space, the atoms of the innermost self. It was as though the zeitgeist had picked up this discussion and manifested it before my eyes. But no matter how rational an explanation the programme put forward, they still came back to the fact that he was a magician, someone who went beyond genius to another level of exploration of the forces behind our universe. An alchemical priest of ancient Egypt returned perhaps?

Sir Isaac Newton Quote

“Newton was not the first of the age of reason. He was the last of the magicians, the last of the Babylonians and Sumerians, the last great mind that looked out on the visible and intellectual world with the same eyes as those who began to build our intellectual inheritance rather less than 10,000 years ago.”

John Maynard Keynes

When we returned to Egypt in 2014 for the Winter Solstice with Margaret and her partner Stephen, the effects continued. Some are more like the now common digital flares and light particles reflecting, but the healing energy was just as powerful. And one or two are definitely something other. All photos c. Terrie Birch. You can see more of her work on Enjoy and let them speak to you.

Let’s leave the last word to my metaphysical friend Alan Richardson whose book The Inner Guide to Egypt always accompanies my journey down the Nile:

Like the malleable levels of the astral light, which are also the impressionable levels of the subconscious, Amun [Light] could take on any form.
