On Halloween Eve, this Saturday night before Halloween I visited some friends. In the spirit of the holiday I suggested an impromptu informal seance. My friends were a bit hesitant at first but I convinced them.
After midnight we lit a candle dedicated to St. Michael the Archangel. We held hands and spoke with the departed, those we knew who had recently passed away. Mostly it was ourselves expressing our feelings concerning those who had died, sharing our memories. If the dead could actually hear us is anyone’s guess. But I wouldn’t discount it. The holding of hands is the essence of what a seance is about; the rest is window dressing. There is something about the shared experience that gives the seance its significance.
Afterwards I did some tarot card readings, which I also feel is an effective tool for contacting the spirit world. I read the cards rarely. My personal experience is the more I use them the less effective they become. However Halloween Eve is a great time for tarot readings!
When we had finished, I took some pictures. One never knows if we will capture something. I randomly took pictures all around. The next day I checked out my photos, and I saw something. A few orb photos. In general orbs in photos don’t mean anything; they are the flash reflecting off of dust or such. But in this case I caught orbs in the same general location, which was curious. I combined them into an animated gif and the result was interesting, as shown above. It feels like the orb is moving, perhaps having passed through the wall, and was now…hovering. Was this orb a visitor to our seance? Could it be a spark of life force that remained? Or just dust?
