Ghosts & spirits manifest in many ways, shapes and sizes. The more
energy an entity has usually determines how it manifests.There seems to
be a pattern when entities manifest, starting with vortexes, then orbs,
ectoplasm and finally full bodied apparitions. However this is not
always the case.
A vortex is a type of doorway to the spirit world. Orbs have been
captured coming out of them and many believe this is how some entities
travel from one realm to the next. Vortexes usually appear only in
photos as a misty funnel like shape and they have been photographed in
many different colors. It is believed there could be many types of
vortexes going to different places for positive & negative entities.
You must be careful when examining orb evidence so you don't mistake
them for dust, reflections of light or moisture in the air. Energy orbs,
spirit orbs or ghost orbs , are spheres of energy containing the soul
of the deceased or the essence of a non human entity. Some believe this
is the easiest way for ghosts & spirits to manifest, because it
takes less energy than a full bodied apparition. Multiple orbs are seen
in areas that have high levels of paranormal activity and often point to
vortexes, portals or doorways within or around haunted locations. They
have been photographed in many different colors and sizes as well. But
no one is certain if these differences indicate specific types of
spirits or ghosts.
Ectoplasm is a thick mist or smoke like substance, usually only seen in
photos when paranormal activity is taking place. Faces, as well as other
forms have been captured on film within ectoplasm and it appears in
many different colors, mainly white, blue and red. Some believe its the
energy of an entity trying to manifest. Ectoplasm can also refer to
anything left behind by a ghost or spirit.
Full Bodied Apparition
A full bodied apparition is when you can see the complete form of a
ghost or spirit. However, most often there is some distortion and
transparency to the entities form.
