Nature Sprites as Green Orbs

Some people believe that green orbs are nature sprites transforming into a visible form of energy to make their presence known. They are often tied to specific types of nature, such as a wood sprite from a specific region. A field sprite may appear in meadows and fields. This connection to a specific area anchors them to the land and is where they work their magic. This means you can only see them at that spot, unlike other orbs that are angelic and manifest wherever they choose.

In ancient folklore, sprites are often called fairies or elves. The sprites are believed to be elemental spirits. For example, a wood sprite lives in the trees and cares for them and other vegetation in the forest. Folklore tells of wood sprites favoring specific trees, such as hawthorn, oak and ash.

Spiritual Meaning of Green

The color green is also a spiritual symbol for the heart. Some theories purport that the spirit orb is pure energy that never incarnated into biological form. Instead, they remain in the spirit world to assist and guide those in the physical.

Chakras and Green Orbs

The fourth chakra is the heart, symbolized by the color green. When a green orb appears to you, especially in a nature setting, it may be in response to a blocked heart chakra. In this case, the message is to open your heart. Allowing love to enter your life can have a transformative effect. A blocked heart chakra stops the natural flow of energy up and down your chakra system and lesser chakras throughout your body.

The blockage can be on an emotional or spiritual level. Getting rid of the chakra blockage will allow you to attain a higher spiritual vibration (frequency) for a better connection with divinity. The heart chakra brings you the ability to grow and develop a range of loving relationships.

Meanings of Different Shades of Green Orbs

Not all green orbs are the same shade. Each carries a different message.

  • Some orbs are light green can may carry the message of the need to heal, symbolizing overcoming your current challenge(s).
  • A medium green orb can signal it is time to use and stretch your healing abilities beyond your current limitations.
  • Dark green orbs can be a warning to shed any pettiness you may be harboring, such as jealousy or envy.
