Overview

In the past decade people all over the world have become fascinated with orbs-the opaque circular features that appear unexpectedly in photographs. In fact, the popularity of this phenomenon has risen so much that serious research has been done on them. Books have been written about what they could be, how they're produced, and all of the scientific aspects of these beautiful spheres of light. However, one question has gone unanswered: what does their appearance mean? Orbs: Their Mission & Messages of Hope explains that these fascinating circles of light are here for a specific purpose-to bring us hope. Written by orb expert and former Stanford and NASA materials science researcher Klaus Heinemann, together with his wife, Gundi Heinemann, a healing arts practitioner, this book is a grounded and visionary presentation of facts and experiences in orb photography. They offer convincing new results addressing the skeptic and numerous reports of meaningful orb encounters from people all over the world. This book delves deep into the magical and exciting world of orbs-how and when they appear to us-and explores what these emanations from Spirit Beings are trying to communicate.

    OUTSTANDING

    QUOTE"Photo 53 was sent to us by a British orb enthusiast. WE cropped the two orbs from impeccable original photos. Janice, a London police officer, describes the circumstances on the left photo:

    I would first like to make it clear that I am a very grounded, sensible person. On August 30th I flew to Croatia, where my daugher was going to be married. .......I zoomed in to get a closer look at the patterns in the orbs, but one very small one stood out from the others as having a very clear face in it. I did not recall you mentioning orbs having faces. I was astonished. I zoomed in further to get a closer look, and there is, without any doubt, a very clear face of some sort of being--not human--peering out of the orb."

    "The point is not that every reader clearly interprets the picture the same way as Janice does. There is no absolute right or wrong when it comes to the interpretation of features in the orbs. There remains a degree of subjectivity on the part of the observer."

    "It is our personal interpretation that the orb phenomena as well as many other supernatural phenomena mankind has witnessed over the ages, have been given to us collectively from the unseen reality as pointers. They cast light on an issue, point the way to a solution of a specific problem, encourage, give an "aha" experience. If we are so inclined, we are invited to personalize what we see.

    This is not an exact science. Nothing that has to do with consciousness is an exact science. There is no guarantee for repoducibility. What applies to one does not necessarily apply to another, and vice versa.

    "Unfortunately, even though the vast majority of orbs, observed by people all over the world are real, this has no bearing on skeptics who continue with their argument--that because flash reflections at airborn particles resemble orbs, all such images must therefore be reflections at airborne particulates. It is of little avail to try to convince such critics otherwise, just as it was of little avail to convince the clerical echelons in the 16th century that the earth was revolving around the sun.

    "They can appear visually, but they cannot talk, and they cannot write. They cannot give us messages in the way we are used to getting them."

    The orbs I saw in four of my pictures were strategically placed and I do decipher a message from them, but it took me a while to connect the dots and this book was a tremendous help in doing that.

    I hope I've enlightend others by sharing this information from my newfound experience. For me, Orbd makes for very interesting reading.
