woo woo, part two

21 Mar

Woo Woo is one of the topics that crosses the imaginary lines of our comfort zones.

In the continuum from strict, critical analysis <———–> to wide-open whacko, I haven’t signed up for a ride on a spaceship sight unseen, yet 🙂 but  I am mostly always fascinated by that which I cannot explain.   I am exhilarated by my peeks behind the curtain – which have occurred in many ways throughout my years.

One such exploration was down the trail of photographing orbs, spirits, lights…some thing at night.

After stepping into the void of separation from my marriage of 20 years, I spent a good part of that summer and fall wandering around my marshy neighborhood in the inky black evenings with my camera – crazy lady with a camera,  🙂 that was me.

One lovely photographer that I have come across focuses her blog on the phenomenon that I was hunting at that time.  I love checking out this site, when I can:  http://orbsdelight.wordpress.com

I had learned about the presence of orbs and such from my friend and saw that much could be seen through the inferred cameras with flash at night.  It is ironic for me to be taking pictures as I am well-known in my family and friends to be impaired with a camera.    i like capturing through my eyes, but the extension of extra equipment has always challenged me.  I tell tourists who thrust their cameras at me that they would be better off asking elsewhere as I am hopeless, cutting off heads and small children as I squint.  For me to capture anything unusual on the screen seems a mini-miracle in itself.

But this particular summer I didn’t care about my lack of skill.  My subjects didn’t seem to care either.   I was capturing the world unseen for my own enjoyment.  Things often appeared that I could not explain.

Two nights at the end of June 2011, this large manifesting light appeared in the same spot, two nights in a row.  Never before or since have I captured anything this dramatic.  This is the marsh behind my neighborhood.

This is night two, in a bit of a fairy-like shape:

Here is an orb party I seem to have crashed:orbparty

This is a strange blue orb that I captured near my parents’ house in Northern Georgia:blueliteorb

And here is the phenomenon that I call spirit lights:

Be sure and click on these photos as they are hard to see unless a bit more blown up:

These shots are the highlights; to give perspective, dramatic appearances of large, vibrant, or unusual phenomenon were rare, but orbs and lights were present every night.

I haven’t any insight on what exactly I’m capturing with the camera here, but I find the process powerful and validating for knowing that the world outside our eyes and range of awareness most definitely exists.

Too woo woo for you?

    Funny what draws us in only if we were to look; you being freed of the moment to walk only to discover what lays hidden.

      funny, that! I just showed my class Lateralus as a kick-off for a lyrics assignment and I’m always struck by the words…”reaching out for whatever may bewilder me.” A spiraling out way to live. Nice to cross these boundaries with you 🙂

    Wonderful!
    I’ve seen the space ship 🙂

    • marga t. March 21, 2013 at 8:23 pm #

      🙂 Gone for a ride? Would be nice to meet for tea and hear your tale!

      • Alison March 21, 2013 at 8:33 pm #

        Almost. Then I stopped the process. Been kicking myself ever since. It was years ago. Still hoping they’ll come back. I’m more ready now.

    I love this so much. I had to start following the Orb lady. How fuckin cool!
    A few of those guys looked like pretty lil fairies. As for the “party” you happened to crash….
    how awesome. 🙂
    Many of these would make gorgeous blown up sofa size prints or murals. Hehehehehe…love em!

      Thank you! So cool how open you and many others are to woo woo! Great time to explore these realms with such fine company 🙂

    Not too Woo Woo at all, thanks so much for sharing these photos, I had never seen orbs or anything like this before, and the fairy pic is incredible! I wonder if they hang out up north at all? I guess I’ll have to take my camera and find out!

    • marga t. March 21, 2013 at 8:29 pm #

      You just need a camera that can see infrared and has a flash. I think most cameras have those capabilities. Might freeze your tush a bit right now in your corner. I’m motivated to get out and explore when I have a purpose…orb hunting 🙂

    It’s always interesting when you cross that woo woo threshold to see who will be willing to come with you… We can be so arrogant, unimaginative, and tedious trying to make everything fit into our puny little cartesian brains. I for one would be absolutely crushed to learn that there are not many other planes of existence and consciousness. Woo woo? Bring it.

    • marga t. March 22, 2013 at 10:26 am #

      puny little cartesian brains – love that 🙂 Isn’t it wonderful how physics now validates the possibilities in an academically acceptable way? Seems like another flat earth paradigm shifting time for all of us. yay! Thanks for adding your unique view and voice. Bring it 🙂

  6. james369 March 22, 2013 at 3:12 pm #

    I think the fundamental problem with academia when presented with phenomena of this kind is their incapacity to accept what they cannot measure. But of course, this incapacity cannot dismiss what you and I actually see – the paradigm is shifting specifically because people like ourselves talk about these matters openly without incredulity, where we accept what we ourselves have incontrovertibly measured both externally and within. More woo woo please.

    • marga t. March 22, 2013 at 11:07 pm #

      Well reasoned and intuitive explanation, all at once! I like the idea that people communicating like us are actually shifting the paradigm. Just came across this in another post today..http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SHbkEs_hSec So many avenues to explore! thanks for the great sharing, James!

    definitely a fan of woo woo – I just never realized what it meant until reading your post.
    great images!

    • marga t. March 23, 2013 at 7:47 pm #

      I’ve been surprised by how many people are open to the woo 🙂 Thanks for trekking with me, out on a limb.

    Hi Marga — I’ve proudly worn the Woo Woo title in our family for many years. Today a favorite teacher of mine sent out her weekly newsletter with a video featuring the Light Orbs, whom she calls the Whole Light Beings. These orbs are photographed by a woman in Croatia. She captures many different shapes and colors, sends them to Toni (my teacher) who shares them with us through her videos. Thanks for posting your beautiful photos. I hope you’ll enjoy this short video and its message. Blessings, alia

    • marga t. March 24, 2013 at 12:35 pm #

      What a pleasure this morning to enjoy this vieo and share in the woo woo sisterhood 🙂 Your sharing, Alia, is full of such positive juju, it glows from within. X!marga

      • vision5d2012 March 25, 2013 at 4:47 am #

        So happy you enjoyed it Marga. I’m happy to share my juju with yuyu, ♥ Alia

    Loved this post and it was not the first time I heard about or saw orbs in photos– gonna have to get out there at night with my camera. Thanks!

    • marga t. March 24, 2013 at 9:38 pm #

      I will look forward to what you find 🙂

    Fascinating Marga t. thanks.

    Really lovely orb “fairies” you’ve recorded. Dr. Klaus Heinemann would be pleased. He said the quantum leaps an orb takes to produce the fairly like image is almost incalcuable. And, thank you for mentioning my blog. I’m just now catching up from a month’s absence….

    • marga t. April 7, 2013 at 2:23 pm #

      Thanks Cheyenne, I’m excited to have a new name to look into in regards to orbs; I was unfamiliar with Heinemann! And I learned of Walter Russell today too – so much mystery to explore! A month away probably means much life lived in your world – love and joy sent to you in that life flow! xmarga

      • orbphotog April 8, 2013 at 5:57 am #

        Now I’ll have to look up Walter Russell. Thank you, Marga! Inward and outward flows of living. Sometimes I have to retreat before I can bubble forth again.

    These are just exquisite. Thank you so much for sharing your witnessing. I am touched. xoxox-A
