When a white orb appears, it's a positive sign. White orbs are associated with Divine energy, innocence, and purity. So if if a white orb appears to you, whether it's in a photo or video or you see it in person, know that the universe is sending you a positive message of love.

Divine Energy Meanings of White Orbs

White orbs are typically associated with divinity and the conveying of spiritual energy. These spiritual messengers are believed to be angelic or at the least a highly evolved soul. Some people believe white orbs are intermediaries between the physical world and the spiritual world. Some white spirit orb entities are thought to have once been incarnated in the physical.

White Orb Meanings

Both angelic and human spirit orbs have specific missions.

  • It's a spirit guide that manifests in the form of an orb when it needs to deliver an important message to their charge.
  • The orb is a spirit that has chosen to serve as a bridge between divinity and humanity to provide hope and love.
  • The entity has chosen to be a guardian and protect their charge(s) by showing up during threatening situations or pivotal moments in the person's life.
  • Some of these spirits were protectors in their earthly life, such as medical professionals, caregivers, law enforcement professionals, and religious leaders, and they continue serving in spirit form. Some are said to feel they failed in life and wish to redeem themselves in spirit form.

Meaning of Different White Shades

There are varying degrees of white orbs that have been assigned different meanings. These are generalizations, so trust your intuition to determine the meaning behind any orb that appears to you or shows up in a photo with you.

  • Murky/cloudy white orb: An evolved soul somehow trapped on the earthly plane or a spirit that is confused and unsure of how to move on to the next plane of existence
  • Brilliant white: An angelic being
  • Soft or pale white: A spirit with kind, compassionate and tender feelings to the human condition; conveys unconditional love and empathy
  • Opaque white: Dense matter; may be the precursor to a full-bodied manifestation of a spirit or a larger spirit presence than an orb, such as a vapor or fog like appearance

Chakra Energy, White Auras, and White Orbs

Divine energy is visualized as being white, which is the combination of all colors. Your crown chakra is white, and auras can be filled with white light or streaked with white as well.

The white aura is a visible sign that the person is connected through the chakra system to Divine energy. The person may be on the verge of enlightenment or has achieved that level of spiritual communion. It shouldn't be surprising that a white spirit orb might be attracted to a person with this auric color. That type of divine energy is readily recognized by a kindred spirit and serves as a magnet, similar to how a moth is drawn to the light of a candle flame.

If you see a white orb, you may experience a surge of energy, receive various mental pictures, and/or experience certain emotions. These forms of communication can establish a lasting connection with the spirit orb or can be a onetime event. Using discernment, you can assess the experience and draw the conclusions appropriate to you and your current circumstances.
