Orb Color Theory

Orb Color Theory

What is Orb Color Theory? 

Orb Color Theory (OCT) is a relatively new concept I started to examine a few years ago. The basic principle is simple: spirits give us insight into their emotional state, or 'aura', by the color of their energies, often found in the form of 'orbs'.

OCT is still in a very experimental stage, yet it does prove fascinating in cases where previous knowledge of the spirit or entity is available.

More often than not, the color meaning of an orb correlates to the 'mood' or rationale of the spirit or ghost either at the time of death or discovery. 

What is an Aura? 

An aura is an electromagnetic field surrounding and emanating from an object or organism. Its frequency is viewed in the form of color, as is the case with light.

Higher frequencies are associated with warmer colors (red, orange, yellow) while lower frequencies tend to reflect cooler colors (green, blue, violet).

We interpret these colors with specific meanings compiled from years of research and examination. These auras change with our moods, experiences, physical health, and mental state.

The concept of auras has been around for centuries and can be found in many New Age practices (chakras, etc.). 

How do we See Auras? 

Though some people claim to be able to see auras with their naked eyes, most of us never will have that talent. The most common way to make auras visible is Kirlian photography.

Semyon Kirlian invented a camera in 1939 to perfect this unique form of photography, capruring the electromagnetic discharge on special film plates.

The Kirlian Effect, as it became known, still remains highly controversial but is still researched today. With the advancement of digital photography, orbs have become more prevelant in mainstream investigation techniques.

Since auras and orbs are comprised of the same form of electro-magnetic and electro-static energies, it seems only logical that they would behave in the same manner.

Though the exact reasoning is still uncertain, digital cameras appear to be performing a form of Kirlian photography, capturing the energy, or auras, in a visible form. 

How does Orb Color Theory Work? 

OCT generally applies to photographs of orbs, though it can also be tied to mists and apparitions. Though the vast majority of orbs are seen as white, they can also be seen in every color in the spectrum.

It is only through the examination of the colors and research into the haunting that such correlations can be observed. Until an in-depth scientific examination of orb colors can be conducted with a large specimen base, OCT will remain a puzzling yet intriguing enigma.
