I really had no idea where to post this, so I hope this is a good place. Please move it to the right place if it isn't.

Lately, I've been seeing weird "orbs" or masses of colors. Usually, they're black, but sometimes I see white or red.

At first, I thought they were tricks of the eye. I can see them out of the corner or side, but once I look directly, they're gone. This has never happened to me before though, and sometimes the color lingers and I can look at it directly for a few seconds.

Other times, I feel this heavy, unnerving presence. It is mostly in my living room/dining room. I feel as if someone is watching me and behind me. Of course, I look and no one is there, but I just feel like a woman (girl?) is there. Not sure why.

If I wasn't seeing these orbs of color, I wouldn't think anything of the creepy feeling I get in the living room/dining room.

A few years ago, in this house, my mother kept seeing a dark figure in the dining room. She called in her priest, and he blessed the house and we've never seen it since. I don't know if that is related or not...

What would you do? I'm just at my wits end, turning corners wondering what I'm going to see or feel. Any advice? Thanks.

This isn't a metaphysical explanation, but I'd get that checked with an eye dr. You could be seeing "floaters," which are tiny pieces of the eye's vitreous gel that become detached. They're also a symptom of a retinal problem. My retinas are badly thinned because of my incredibly poor eyesight, so I got to learn some of this stuff the hard way.

I'm not saying that you couldn't be sensing a presence, but there may simply be a mundane explanation.

If the eye doctor doesn't turn anything up, try a cleansing (many to be found on this site and on the net).

If they aren't floaters in your eye, they might be what I call "little astral critters" -- blobs of astral energy, perhaps slightly intelligent (say at the level of a fairly dumb dog). They are generally attracted by magical energy not properly grounded or in some cases by strong emotions in an area. They are harmless and can by banished temporarily by just about any cleansing or banishing spell or permanently by cutting whatever energy is attracting them.

I'd agree with this if it isn't something wrong with your eyes. I get something similar occasionally and assumed it was an eyesight issue until I'd had them tested. They never really bother me, its one of those things I've gotten used to...

  Similar to what Randall has said, provided that these spots are not an eye problem, they are probably the orbs of unused energy that clump together.  It's difficult to say specifically what the colors signify because I haven't studied them that intently--haven't had the opportunity, honestly.
  The orbs and the black presence are almost definitely related.  Orbs of psychic energy--"astral critters", as he called them--don't appear for no reason, and neither do shadowy spirits.  If she was merely seeing a shadow of a spirit, that's one thing.  If the spirit was genuinely black, then that could be a cause for the black orbs and if so they should be avoided.  It could be a residual presence.
  Tell us if it's an eye problem please.

Thanks for the replies. I'm sorry I didn't answer for so long, I completely forgot I started this.

I do wear glasses, but I just had an appt. recently (3 months ago) and nothing was wrong (other than wearing glasses, but I've been wearing them since I was 3).

Whether I think it is a shadow of the spirit or the spirit was black itself, I really don't know. I avoid that and things like that like the plague.

I think I'll be giving the cleansing a try, just for piece of mind.

Thanks for the replies, I appreciate it!

I have some pretty fantastic "hallucinations" similar to this, but I don't tend to attribute things in my life to supernatural forces. I have mild synesthesia (for me, I see color when I hear certain sounds), and I've always encouraged myself to enjoy 'seeing' things. It seems I've developed the ability to conjure up fun stuff for my brain to see, albeit not on command. My "visions" are 100% mental.

Just throwing it out there - I'm with the "see a doctor" camp. I just wanted to say that it's certainly plausible that you've started training yourself to see things.

This happens to me too. I used to think that it was my eyes playing tricks on me, but the dog and cat seem to see and notice them too. Sometimes the dog will look at the same spot in the room, cock her head to the side and then leave. I dont' know what they are, but in my experience, they aren't harmful.

If it is not a physical problem than I can tell you my experience. I see orbs and streaks of color that have no physical cause. Some of these are natural to the enviorment and do various things that maintain it. Some are like spiritual cockroaches and feed off of left behind negative energy. Others are remenants of un transmuted energy that react in certain way to other types of energy.

If you have a negative entity, the black orbs could be a part of it or being used by it. The back orbs that I have seen lately arround my house generaly just absorb excess energy.
When I get too many  dark orbs in my house it is time to do a cleansing.

For the negative entity, if that is what it is a banishing might also be in order.

As far as color goes, many people who see these things see them in a slightly different way based on how our subconcious mind relates to color and shapes and texture. We see it in a form that we can understand. With colored ones I ask myself how it makes me feel, what does that color mean to me, what ae the connoations with that color.

I also tust my intuition about these things. If it feels threatening or negative be careful. If I get nuetral feelings, I just let it be, most of the time it is just passing trough anyway. The energy of a place maintains a balance, in high energy paces there are more astral orbs.
