About My Orb (light being) Photo

My brother passed away 4-2012. My step dad in 8-2011. I never paid attention to paranormal activity before. I now live in my brother's house, his ashes are with me, where he took his last breath. I feel him here. I will talk to him, then start taking random pictures and I see him in orb form. I do believe this is my brother and/or my step-dad along w/his best friend whom passed 3 months after my brother, his BF.

I feel my brother and every picture nearly I take of my son, there is an orb next to him.

What Makes My Photo So Special

I believe it's my brother's spirit. I speak to him, then take pics and he is there with me... my son.. my mom... he is always here whenever I ask him to be. There is no other explanation. When I took pictures in this house prior, there was nothing. Now, most always when I take a pic of my son, there is orb or two next to him. I have not been able to capture an orb next to me, but always my son or my mom. What does that mean, really?

Lessons Learned

  • I know that when I speak to my brother, then orbs appear in pictures. It's like he is watching over us, protecting us. That brings me comfort.
