The Truth about Seeing Spirited Sparkles


UPDATE: My book Does Your Child See Sparkles? Help for Parents Guiding Psychic Kids is now here.

Introduction

I’ve had several people reach out and ask me about seeing sparkles, especially young teens or mothers of smaller children.

Usually, the child starts seeing sparkles at the age of three or four, and over several years, gradually starts to see them more often. So by the time they are around the age of eleven, it is very common to them.  The younger children view the experience as normal, and may not say anything special about it, thinking that everyone sees them. Older children, can be ridiculed, accused of making up the whole thing, and shy away from sharing the experiences. Then I have known about some children that run and jump to try and catch the sparkles. Many parents are confused and a little frightened about the whole thing. After the first question I received by email, I wrote a blog about it. You can access it by going here: http://thegobetween.wordpress.com/2010/07/04/children-seeing-sparkles/ 

Since that blog article was published, search engines are connecting others to me as time goes along. So I felt the need to present more, in depth information about seeing sparkles. And perhaps give a little background about what might be going on. Understand that this is just my perception on the topic, as given to me by my spirit guides and higher self.

NOTICE: ** While explaining sparkles, it must be understood that I am referring to the spiritual concept of seeing an energetic substance – not a physical vision, or eye problem.  And I encourage anyone who thinks their situation might be physical in nature to see a medical professional concerning it. **

What Do Sparkles Look Like?

Sparkles can be seen by people as small flecks of dust, iridescent particles, flashes of light, blinking clear lights and something called “static,” such as the static or fuzz you might see on the television when the station has gone off the air.

Many have said they see them better at night, in the dark. While others (especially, smaller children, see them during the daylight, even outside in the Sun. Others see them swirling in patterns, sometimes in different colors. These people have said they occasionally see black or dark sparkles, but not very often. Sometimes they spin around and blend together. Usually, it is seen with eyes closed as well as open.

Have You Ever Seen Fuzz and Particles?

I thought for a long time that I just couldn’t understand seeing them. And wished I could see them so it would be easier to relate to my clients who have witnessed it. Then after going back into my childhood, I realized I have always seen sparkles. However, I would not have called them that. To me it is more like hazy fuzz. If I could describe it, I would say it was the substance that matter is made of. It looks like manifesting energy to me.

Just What Are Sparkles: Lifting of the Veils

Now that the veils are lifting from our awareness, and the energies are opening up to other dimensions; we are able to recognize things so much more. The separation between the earthly realm and the spiritual realm is beginning to open up and blend. The thing is that the sparkles (or energy field) have always been there: just as the aura around a person is always there, but many people cannot see it. Only after they have been instructed as to what it is, and how to see it, do they really recognize it.

The way I understand, the particles that present themselves like sparkles are very visible. But it is not distinguished by the brain. It seems to be part of another dimension and not something that we are accustomed to seeing, so it does not register in the brain as real. Only after you understand that it could be a possibility can you begin to identify it.

Another way to think about it is the spirits of those who have passed away are always around us. But we might not be able to see them. Sometimes, you can see movement out of the corner of your eye. You turn your head, trying to see it physically and it disappears. It works the same way with sparkles.

Some children believe the sparkles are angel lights. That could be. There is a new resurgence of a phenomenon called “orbs”. They are large, round balls (at least larger than the sparkles) that float around, usually at night. Quite often they show up in photographs. They seem to represent spirit energies or entities of one kind or another and like to be around nature. So the thought that sparkles could be angel lights makes sense. I am given the information that the sparkles are “arranged” by angels in a manner that we can appreciate, and possibly connect with.

We All Have the Ability to Experience Sparkles

If you close your eyes very tightly and rub them with your hands, then open them, you see sparks of light. This is a natural affect due to the pressure. But with energetic or spirited sparkles it works the other way around. You must lose your focus, not wanting to focus on anything. It works better when you are in your bedroom at night after you turn off the light. (I usually close my eyes as soon as the light goes out, because when I was a child, I could see these particles moving around, forming designs. It scared me so badly that I learned to close my eyes to keep from seeing it.) but it is a great experiment to try.

Turn out your light. Lay in your bed with your eyes open. After your eyes get accustomed to the darkness, everything will have a haze, or film covering it. You might even see it moving around. Yes, you might even think you are going crazy! But believe me, you are not. The more you play with this concept, the more you will experience.

Indigos and Crystal Society
Kids That See Sparkles

This whole phenomenon is becoming more familiar to society. Many other things dealing with the paranormal is coming to the surface. Many children and young adults are showing more abilities to understand, and exhibit psychic and mediumistic tendencies. These children, known as indigos or crystal children, are usually highly empathic and don’t know how to deal with it. These young folks are introducing the change that is springing forth even now. Those of us who are in the paranormal and metaphysical fields are here to be guides for the way-showers, and help them keep grounded. Then they are able to assist us all in the transformation of the world. I believe the kids seeing sparkles fall into this group of indigos and crystal children. And we must do much more to be of assistance.

  1. Good Evening, Melissa! I’ve had a few experiences with sparkles. When I first started noticing them in just the past few years, I thought something was wrong with my vision. But then I realized, for me, I feel it is Spirit letting me know its presence.

    What it looks like to me is a sparkler, like on the 4th of July, in the upper right side of my vision.

    I had one instance where I heard a loud noise in the middle of the night that woke me up, and when I opened my eyes, I saw the sparkles in the corner of my bedroom. It lasted several seconds. I felt comforted and protected.

      • Hello Melissa I am glad I am not alone. I have saw these since I was like 5 yrs old on and off. I have told friends and family members no one could relate. The strangest thing for me and the sparkles is that my last couple family members who have died I have saw them before. I always tell them they are beautiful and not to leave and watch them dance around me. I know in my heart they will only stay for a short time and I take it in. I can not express how greatful I am that you are talking about this. I also dreamed I died one night and the only way I can desribe it was I was flying with them and was one at perfect bliss the best feeling I had ever felt. Shine your light Tabatha

    • Christine, I’ve seen these as well. and JUST as you described like a sparkler that last several seconds. I think I’ve only told one other person about this, but reading your comment has definitley made me feel better about what I’ve seen!

    • Hi, I happened upon this page looking for information. I’m nearly 50-years old live alone and I recently lost my dog, she passed 3-months ago and was the only dog I’ve ever had. She was with me for 15 years and I love her more than I can say. I’ve been in a very bad way since losing her. About a week or two after losing her I began to notice a faint energy like flickering at the edge of the hallway as I sat in the living room. This happens when I’m very distraught and sobbing telling my dog I love you. During the next few days this energy would be more easily seen and the faint image of my dogs face could be seen with her eyes being most pronounced, this was also accompanied by a faint light blue haze in the same area. This has happened many times not only at home but also when I visited my elderly parents in Florida a couple weeks ago. Seeing her has given me comfort and before I first saw my dogs face I had prayed to God very hard for a couple days to please let me see her, I want to tell her I love her and to know she’s alright. I’ve kept this to myself and wanted to know if this happens to others. I have no children and I love my baby girl with all my heart. This has been the hardest thing to cope with by far in my life. Thank you, Russ Fleenor Noblesville, Indiana

      • What a beautiful recognition of life after death (of the body). And thank you so much for sharing this personal account with us. It is another testament that love lasts forever. My blessings to you…M/

      • Hi Russ…What a beautiful story…I totally resonate with it. I got my first and only puppy 17 years ago. He was a German shepherd named Wolfe. I, like you lived alone and didn’t have any children. I was 28 at the time. Wolfe was the love of my life and still is. I literally loved him like he was my child. We were best friends. I’m talking, birthday parties…Christmas presents…buying him chicken nuggets at the drive thru after Vet. visits…etc…I have never felt a stronger love…including family and friends. I had him for 11 wonderful years. The real weird thing is that my diamond white, very bright sparks of light started in 2010….What I just realized NOW is that Wolfe died in 2010…. WOW Even stranger… This is the my first time on this or any site. I was just looking to see if anyone sees what I see…I call them divine sparks and say thank you after I see one….Today I am well aware that these sparks are divine and work very synchronistically… They are from a higher and pure dimension of love.

    • My sister said it could be spirits I never tell people of it for fear of being judged of haveing seen them when others can’t but if it is a spirit worry because they are not always good

  2. Hi,
    this is so interesting – my 3 year old daughter awoke saying she saw “sparklies” – blue, orange…above and around us in one particular room – for at least a half an hour…..on the very night you wrote this article! I love the coincidence.

    Although I don’t think she felt truly threatened by them, she was afraid. She said they made a loud noise in her ear and something about (the sparklies I think?) turning into a lion..any guesses as to what that part of this experience might be?

    Thanks!

    • Hello Kim~~

      I appreciate you responding to this article. And, yes, what a synchronistic event. To this point, I have not heard of kids seeing AND hearing the sparkles at the same time. So this is new to me. So be it! But having them shift into a lion is pretty common. That is how I have always seen them, always forming patterns, etc. Actually, in your daughter’s case, I feel like she is subconsciously changing them around to form a special thing. Whenever she sees them in a certain form, such as the lion, then the two of you can decide what that means to her. (For me, a lion means courage and strength.) So she could say that the lion is a special spirit guide bringing her courage.

      Pay attention: Be sure to notice if there is a pattern in when she sees them. Or if there might be a physical movement that brings it on. We always must be careful and insure that it is not a physical issue to deal with. Young children especially count on us grown ups to care for them. Recognizing this as a spiritual event is great, but do not rule out any physical situations.

      Be sure to keep us informed about her sparkles. This is turning out to be a learning chain for many people, including me! Thanks so much.

  3. Hi,
    Since I was very young I have been really interested in life after death. Though my experience came years later. When my grandfather was dying we were driving from WA to CA, we were about an hour away from the small town. I all the sudden started seeing sparkles. I had never seen them before. They continued all the way to town. When we arrived to the small town, I talked with family members and they said that we just missed my grandfathers passing within the last hour. So I believe that, that was my grandfathers spirit with us, through our last of our travels. Shortly afterwards I started seeing purple like a dark violet. In different forms sometimes mimicking other objects/shapes. I see his color mostly when I drive. My mother died a few years later. When I went to this place she was staying at, I saw once again sparkles this time they were like a swarming amount. I then started seeing pink. Somewhere lost I have a picture of my grandfather’s garage (my mom’s dad) that I took after I got her ashes. There is this one picture that has this big blob of pink. Months after my mother had passed my brother passed as well. I then started seeing green. Not knowing why this would be his color, just that he loved orchids and he had tons of them. Though I had no green thumb we lost tons of them and I sent the rest packing to the college that he had started an orchid club. Back to my brother I was in the hospital his last days and it was just an overwhelming amount excitement for me to be bless to see what I wittiness. On his last days he would sit up on the bed and not talk but for hours he would follow something on the wall/air. Me being to focus I was able to see sparkles of light where he was looking. I just followed the sparkles as he did, and out of the corner of my eye I watched him in amazement. One of his last words was he saw someone he knew. He just blurted it out, it was crazy I tried to get more information from him but he was like in another world. After he passed away he was struggling to breathe so he had a strained look on his face. My son who was around 5 asked me why he looked that way so I told him he was having a hard time breathing. Our family all gathered in the waiting room to talk about things. I returned to the room where my brother was to gather my things as I looked at him, I noticed something very different about his face. He was smiling! It was crazy, I asked the nurse if anyone had been in the room, she said no. I brought the family back in to see him and everyone was amazed! The coolest thing ever!
    I see other colors and I just guess who it may be. I wonder how I could really find out who these colors belong to?
    I recently went and got a reading and there were definite things that were there that made sense. Though I was disappointed that no one in the family wanted to talk.
    Thank you for this blog, it makes me feel better knowing that it is what I am seeing.

    • Annmarie~~

      This is a great testimony to seeing sparkles, your psychic medium tendencies, and a loving memorial to your loved ones! How wonderful that you are able to participate in this manner in the events. You are truly blessed. As far as knowing who the other colors are, just ask your spirit guides, and you will have an immediate knowing.

      Thanks so much for telling about your experiences…M

  4. Very good read, I started university today for 3 years of art. As the lecture began it was all normal, and at the mention of painting, which is my chosen specialty, I felt an electric pulse go up my spine and suddenly there was floating darting sparkles everywhere. What I can only describe as a thick cloud of mosquito’s made of glitter. I was worried it was an eye problem, when I got home I researched it, concluded that it was not floaters , or white blood cells as some narrow minded doctors were claiming. (white blood cells are too small for the naked eye to see anyway). I found this page and others with information correlating to this. I am a spiritual person and I took this as a sign that I am advancing down the path chosen for me in life, becoming the painter and spirit/person I strive to be. Thank you and much love. Dan x

    • Dan~~

      I am so glad you decided to research the topic, and not let others influence your experience! And I agree that this must represent your chosen path at this time. Thank you so much for responding to the blog post. Also, if you are inclined, there are a few other articles in this space that might be of interest to you!

      Continue on in your heart’s passion! …M

  5. I saw sparkles for the first time yesterday! My husband passed away 8 months ago , a medium I consulted at Lillydale a few months ago said that my husband was sending me sparkles – I had no idea what she was talking about – but she said that she had never had a spirit communicate that so strongly…yesterday I was cleaning up after a successful work event (that he always helped me with) and suddenly I was surrounded by beautiful gold & silver floating sparkly particles – I was so startled – it only lasted a few moments but I’m certain it was my husband sending me his congratulations…..Like others who commented before me I first thought OMG am iI having a stroke? but it was so peaceful and amazing that it must have been him.

    • I am so sorry about your husband’s passing, MJ. But it sounds like he is very active and close by all the time. What a comfort that is! It is amazing how special the sparkles can be. So simple, but so special at the same time.

      Thank you so much for sharing your story…M

  6. Hi there, hmm, I had a theory about the sparkles or “billions of trillions of little lights” as I’ve been describing them that they were the light of true reality breaking through the distorted reality which I have been accustomed to perceiving. Well for the last 6 months I have dedicated every hour of every day towards spiritual enlightenment and as such I noticed a dramatic shift in my perception. For at least 5 months now I have been seeing these sparkles on everything, including my body, and when i close my eyes. Even when I look into a mirror or into a light I see them. 24/7 for the last six months they have only become brighter and more numerous. And when I am focusing on them they tend to coalesce into many linked moving concentric circles of varying changing colors; If I become even more focused they fuse into a semi-solid white which makes everything I see much brighter. I suppose I should mention that I also see random flashes of light and white glowing outlines around everything, including humans (sometimes auric colors as well) all the time. Sometimes I will look at a grid of lines such as a flannel shirt and I will always see a very intense grid of lights outlining the pattern. Objects will also spontaneously seem to vibrate and appear to me to look more like holograms. These are only some of the many frequent “strange” phenomenon which I have been experiencing of late. Regardless, I hope this helped, and that no one should feel frightened if these happen to them; for me they have only brought joy and inner peace.

    • Thanks so much for your comments Brian~~ I have never known someone who is so intent on growing like that! But you have brought some interesting ideas to my mind that I will also explore.

      I also know that your experiences will help many other folks that read this. Blessings…M

  7. Thanks for pointing me to these posts. That is exactly my experience. It started in the bright day light outside, but then I could see them when it was shady, inside and even at night. I noticed I see them best when I do a soft gaze, like you mentioned. The ethereal energy makes great sense to me.

  8. I found your site upon googleing the words “sparkles in the air” , as that is all that I can describe my experience this past week. It is uplifting to hear there are other experiences.
    Let me describe my recent encounter.
    I have had some tough times in my life. But I don’t think I could ever say I have ever felt the glory of god like I have recently. I feel surrounded by his love and I believe I have just recently felt the real love and faith that taking god into my heart brings. Its a feeling I can’t describe. I can’t put into words. I don’t attend church, or talk to others about this. I have never considered myself a really religious person. Did not grow up with a faith but have always believed in a higher power.
    I just started googling words of wisdom , reading bible verses, and started listening to music of faith in the evening on my laptop as I lay in bed. Just this past week.
    And this is when I started seeing the sparkles. I don’t know what they are or what they mean. But I feel no fear when they are around. I feel safe and protected. Which is weird because I am a fraidy cat usually, and any creeks and unexplained things leave me frozen with fear. But I feel at peace. In fact after I see them I feel tingling all over, like a warm feeling comes over me of calmness.
    Its hard to describe what I see. All I can describe are… sparkles lol I see them out of the corner of my eye, or when I am not looking directly at something. Its in the air of my bedroom every night this week. Like Gold sparkles, or gold glitter glimmering in the air. Just one or two little sparkles. It catches my eye like when light reflects on glitter. It simmers. They only last for a few seconds and they are gone. And are never in the same place twice, but seem to be in my room mostly.
    Can anyone tell me what this means? lol
    Are these possible spirits? Any why just now? Are they angels? Should I be afraid? So many questions and I just am not sure what it all means.

    • Thanks for googling! So many people have the same questions that you do. All I can say is this: as long as it is not a physical situtaiton, then I believe they are angels and spirit loved ones. And this just happens to be the way you are aware of them. I consider it a blessing. Check out the other articles that I have posted on sparkles and children. There is lots of info there. Peace to you…Melissa

  9. Hi everyone, in my never ending search for a reason or some sort of understanding for what literally terrified me on a nightly basis since my very early childhood up until I would have to say the age of 11 I have stumbled upon this blog and thought to share my experiences. I was a child who saw sparkles, and that was the only term I have ever used to describe them, and now that I am older I can better describe what they appeared to be, I would see clusters of floating moving colored light which resembled sparkles, each cluster its own color, some would be gold or purple, blue, lavender, various colors. The clusters were never mixed nor were their colors. I would see them only at night, and every night since I was very very little and stopped before I hit my teenage years. They never hurt me but they terrified me badly, I would cry in so much fear, scream for my mom and when she would come near I would be screaming, “the sparkles the sparkles” and sob, burying my face against her, but even with her near, and eventually snuggled up between my mom and dad in their bed, there they were, the relentless sparkles. I felt I wasn’t safe even in the safety between my parents. These sparkles seemed to want something from me, that is what it felt like, like they were watching me and getting closer, and as the clusters would come closer, they seemed to grow larger, or more vivid. They did not touch me but that didn’t matter, I just wanted them to leave me alone, it was such a frightening experience on a nightly basis that I always had loss of sleep, it was emotionally and mentally disabling, I felt tortured every night.
    My Father chalked it up to my imagination and would ignore it and let my mother console me, though neither one explained what was happening which made it more scary, and of course I can’t blame them, obviously they never experienced what I was experiencing, but because of this there was no real comfort or the feeling of protection to guard against what I was seeing and feeling. I suppose I will never have a definitive explanation, but my search continues because it was such a huge part of my childhood, I would like to have an answer and put it to rest. From doing a lot of reading, and coming upon this blog, the idea of the sparkles having had been angels seems a nice thought and it isn’t that I don’t believe in angels, I believe in God and believe that angels exist, but I wonder why if they were angels, did they scare me SO much, why did they not give me a sense of peace like others I have read about actually holding out there hands to touch the sparkles? I don’t know and I guess I might never know, but I wanted to share my experiences here and to tell the parents who are concerned to please let your children know you understand even if you don’t. Being little and knowing your the only one going through this adds to the distress you feel.
    Eventually as years went by I saw the sparkles less and less until I stopped seeing them completely, I can not remember exactly what age I was when it stopped but I do know it was right before I entered my teen age years, most likely around 10 or 11. So if your wondering if your child will always see them all I can say is that as for me they eventually went away. There were nights, after the sparkles had stopped appearing to me that I would feel a very light touch almost like a feather brush my face while I was trying to sleep, and oddly enough that did not scare me half as much as the sparkles always had. When this would happen I would open my eyes to see nothing there. I am now a 40 year old woman and mother and my experiences have helped me to understand my own daughter who is now 18, but when she was very little and well into her young teen age years, did not see or speak of sparkles but of seeing people, ghosts if you will, in her room, day or night, anywhere she was really, and though that has never happened to me, I was able to be understanding, consoling, and better equipped to help her understand that I did understand about seeing things others may not see, and how she shouldn’t be afraid, which she never really got “afraid” but more like annoyed, she always will say how they did and do bug her and she just wants to be left alone. About a year ago she would complain that there was a little girl, and she would describe her in detail, in her room wanting to talk all the time, this was the first I saw of it really bothering her, but she is a pretty tough kid and it didn’t take a long time for it to stop affecting her. She said she taught herself how to make it stop, and that’s good enough for me! Well all, it feels good to know there are others out there who know and understand about the sparkles, and that I am not alone, although I do hope and pray that the parents of the children who do see the sparkles will pay attention to their kids in a comforting way, and let them know that they are not alone.
    God bless.

    • Hi Amanda!

      Your experiences as a young child are amazing. I only wish that the internet had been around when I was a young child to help me through my years of screaming to my parents so much, that eventually they ignored me: thinking I would get over it. If they had known what we know, it sure would have helped. Thank you so much for joining the comments about sparkles. Look around my blog because there are earlier posts ~~ about 3-4 all together to address this interesting subject. Blessings…M

      • Hi Melissa :-)

        I totally understand what you are saying, I too wish the internet had been around when I was a kid and that my parents as well as yours were more able to understand, and BE understanding toward us, well now we can be there for others by sharing our experiences, hoping to shed some light for them and for ourselves as well. Thank you so much for creating this site, it is amazing to be able to connect with others regarding something so personal which I as well as others, I am sure have always thought and felt like it was something no one on the planet would ever understand and relate to. I am going to take a look around your blog now at the earlier posts. Thank you again, and God Bless!

    • Hi Amanda, what a great post and thank-you SO MUCH for sharing with us all, who are going through the same experience. Myself, with my daughter. Just a few days ago, my daughter was in bed and was sobbing uncontrollably because she said there were blue lights on her pillow and they were scaring her. She was swatting at them and then was pointing to red sparkles that were on her blanket. I obviously couldn’t see them, but I told her not to be scared because they might be little fairies who are just there to protect her. Today she said she felt them on her skin and said it felt like ants underneath her shirt. It gave me the goose bumps. Do you have any other advice on how to calm her down and put her heart at ease when she sees them? Thanks so much, Lina.

  10. My Dad passed away in December of 2005, he lived next door with my Mom. That night, she slept in our downstairs reck-room. She was quietly crying and then suddenly these sparkles appeared. She described them as the white shimmers which glisten on the ocean waves-like white, small points of light. She said that they were about 2-3 feet wide and almost the length of my futon that she was sitting on. She said it was a comforting feeling which allowed her to at least get some sleep. Anyhow, last week, before she went to bed next door, she put on my Dad’s pajamas and was in the process of putting on his pajama top. She said she had not worn his PJ’s in a while. While she was pulling it over her head, her eyes were closed and this happened again. Sparkles-glistening, the same band of sparkles that occurred in 2005 hours after my Dad passed. Coincidentally, she was feeling down and said she was crying prior to the sparkles. My question is this. If we as humans are seeing and bearing witness to all of this…why do only a few people see them and why does it happen so irregularly. Why can’t the spirits or angels come when asked-it’s as if they are playing hide and seek. Sorry so many questions…I am a believer but I don’t know how this energy works…it’s quite baffling to the normal Joe. Do these sparkles have a mind, have emotion and if they are spirits can they see us all the time and then again…why can’t we see them? I know this is horrible…but there’s a desperate need to know. What is your professional thoughts from one mortal to another? I hope you respond…thank you so much in advance for your help and insight. May God Bless You…my name is Steve P.

    • Thanks Steve for the wonderful personal testimony of your mother’s experiences. I’ll see if I can explain what I understand of this special contact called Sparkles. /// Whenever a loved one passes away, they are still concerned about the living folks they leave behind. /// Being fully in spirit, means that the vibrational content of the person’s spirit is quicker, the frequency vibrates at a higher level — since the physical body no longer weighs it down. /// It is natural for the spirit loved one to check in to let us know they are alright and sending love. (to me sparkles is a great way to express love). In order for the one in spirit to accomplish this, he has to bump down the vibration to match that of the third dimension. At this point, what is witnessed depends on where the living person is oriented emotionally, concerning belief systems, and what might be occupying their minds. So– if the living in question is a highly spiritual person, very open to possibilities, and not clouded by societal thinking, she will witness some kind of contact. You know the saying: “I hear what you are saying” or “I see what you mean” Well, these statements help to understand how some people experience life. /// Those who “see” what you are saying, for instance, may be very suceptable to “seeing” spirit appearance. This is not physical seeing — although it may appear that it is physical. It really is seeing with a deeper spiritual vision (I call it UltraSense). /// Not everyone will see it the same way.. Not everyone will see it at all – although the spirit is there, whether seen or not. And the manner in which the spirit being presents itself will be different according to the one seeing — it could be the sparkles, or a fine mist, or a depression in the bed covers, or even a figure or outline of a person. /// Also, when dealing with spirit communication or contact, many factors must be taken into account for just the right circumstance to occur. /// Given your account, all those things were met, and your mother had a wonderful blessing from the spirit world — love and comfort sent from your dad. /// As many times as I have witnessed this same type of thing, and as many stories as I have heard, I am always amazed at the wonder involved and eternal message sent each and every time it happens.

      • Thank you so much Melissa, just shared your response with my Mom and family. I told her she should give you call-you seem like such an amazing person, thank you once again for providing the insight. You’ve got a new fan-and I will hopefully be in touch, thank you again. Steve from Georgia

  11. Hi,
    I have recently noticed in a few images there appears to be ‘glitter’ either on my face or on my clothes. these images have been taken months apart and with different cameras so i am unsure of what they are, do you know anywhere i can have these reviewed or get more information. Thanks, Kirsten.

      • Kendal (and Kirsten)~~ I am sorry that I have not been able to locate anyone that is informed with this phenomena. However, I can tell you that it is natural and not to be concerned. I knew someone many years ago who manifested gold fleck on her arms and face without realizing it. It usually happened during church service. To me, it is a very spiritual event and your angels are conducting this manifestation. ‘bless you both. And watch this blog site, because I will do some research and post an article in the next month or so. Blessings…M/

      • Oh, and Kendal ~~ the blog site has been around for many years, but the article you commented on still gets well over 100 views each day. It is very active! And because of that, I try to add updates to it as possible. Thanks for stopping by…M/

  12. My Dad passed away two weeks ago today. My 5 year old daughter has been increasingly complaining about seeing green and pink sparkles whether her eyes are open or shut, particularly at night. She says it’s a little scary, and sometimes there are shadows. She also sees zig zags and white moving circles…would this be part of it too? I had originally googled looking for medical possibilities and couldn’t believe what you were describing and it sounded identical to her!

    • Thanks Susannah for your comments. What a wonderful gift it is for a grandfather to visit and let you know he is fine and near by. Given the timing, I would think it is the spiritual version of Sparkles. But do not rule out the medical aspect. Better to be safe…

  13. I have seen spirits all my life, and have had many many psychic experiences. I have seen the sparkles many times also usually in front of my of me and in day light, but I was never sure what it was. I am now pregnant with my first and many times when I prey for my child or think of how much love I have for this little one, I have seen a tiny but bright blue light and it flashes. It is often high above, once it was above my door way where my icon is.

    • Hi Alexandra~~ I appreciate you sharing your experiences. Other people feel comforted when they realize they are not alone. Many blessings with your new baby! The child is very special and watched over…M

  14. I have seen “sparkles” since I was little. I remember the first time I saw them. I have seen two different types: little clear balls very very tiny (which I think might be “explainable” material in the liquid of my eyes). I have also seen in the blue sky, the best anyway, very billions of tiny quick moving flashes of light. Seriously they look like tiny “fire sperm” doing spirals and moving extremely quickly. I have always been intrigued by both of these things, however, maybe the sparkles could be a result a lack of electrolytes as I can see them way better after a night of drinking alcohol. Also, I see these when I am in the sun way better. Sorry to anyone who disagrees, btw I am a very spiritual person that is the whole reason I stumbled upon this discussion, but eyes are extremely complex and sensitive sensory body parts. Like if you look at a light and close your eyes you can see the light floating around. The same if you rub your eyes and then open them you can see them floating too. I am in the middle (unsure.)
    I am glad others have experienced the same phenomenon and recently I have found out I might be an Indigo baby/child, now adult…

  15. Two days after my beloved lab died i was looking in the mirror putting on some make up and in my reflection millions of sparkles were raining down on me. I couldn’t believe my eyes and kept squinting at myself thinking I was hallucinating. It only lasted 15 – 20 seconds. I hope it was him letting me know I didn’t put him down in vain and that he was okay. On our last walk together raindrops from an earlier rain fell from a giant oak and the sun had illuminated them making them look like rhinestones raining down. I had said to him look at how pretty that is, maybe it was his way of saying I love you. I hope so.

  16. Hi Melissa! Thanks for posting this article. Today I saw a large static image, like the static of a TV on my wall, that was very large, and ethereal and definitely was exactly what this article is talking about. A few weeks ago I opened my eyes at night and saw tons of patterns on the wall and all over the room. I was freaked out! It also happens every night when I got to sleep and have been trying to fall asleep immediately or I try to at least close my eyes and ignore it, since its frightened me, (I’ve kind of always been afraid of the dark) I was thrilled to read this article and find the explanation. I want to try to keep my eyes open tonight and see what I see in the patterns. I definitely feel like I have a clairvoyant ability that I need to develop. I was born in 1988 and believe my boyfriend and I are Indigo Children. We are going down this spiritual path and I’m excited to see that Spirit is with me and us. :)

  17. I’ve seen sparkles for a few years then they stopped. Last night, where I used to see sparkles, I had a 1/2 second flash of white light that came about every 30 seconds. Lasted for over an hour. What could that be. I prefer the sparkle they seemed gentler. Thanks, Anne

    • Thanks Anne for you comment. You have been blessed many years with sparkle (spirit energy) visitations. Seems that the white light flashes are different spirits. Probably because you have grown and are dealing with different things in your life than before.

  18. Thank you! I had dreams about my deceased mother telling me about my eyes and these dreams felt so real so I’ve gotten my eyes checked and my eyes were healthy then lately I’ve been seeing sparkle type things so got my eyes check again healthy eyes…then I was having a bath (what my mom and I did together when I was a little girl) the “orbs” were completely strong and lots of them while I was in the bath I passed it off as tired hungover and hot from the bath but I’m starting to believe that’s my mom or spirits visiting…

  19. Hi my name is Michelle, i am 24 and have been seeing static lights (sparkle) everyday since i can remember. Over the years they have changed from vivd colors and shapes to just white tiny lights… I have told many people but no one seems to take me seriously. my “static” is such a part of my life that I could never picture my vision without it. Sometimes when i look at the sky it looks like thousands of tiny angles flying around and brings peace to my heart. I want to learn as much as I can about this and your artical helped out a lot so Thank you!!!

  20. I gotta say, this is good to see that it is normal…when I was 20 years old…about 17 years ago I had seen a cluster of sparkles outside my shower. I thought it was my eyes playing tricks on me…the clusters was in the shape of a person some what..I reached out to wipe my hand through it to see what would happen….the sparkles then started to move around like I disturbed it and like a breeze blew into the room the sparkles slowly vanished..it was a very amazing experience and it has never happened again…no matter how many times I try to make it happen..months prior to this some friends and I were playing with a quija board and many things happened that whole year…but thae sparkles were the only thing I had ever actually seen…was this a spirit?

    • Great comment Jason. Thanks! I feel like the grouping of sparkles represented a protective spirit around you, such as a guardian angel or spirit guide. Wonderful to know they are around us! …M

  21. I was walking to school and it was bright outside and I saw what looked like tiny bubbles and sparkles everywhere I focused my eyes at. Would that mean it was a spirit or something? Or is that just a normal thing that happens with your eyes? Thanks (:

    • Thanks Christine!

      You have to be aware that it could potentially be a physical thing with the eyes. If it happens at certain times, you should be able to define if it is physical or spiritual. Blessings…M

  22. Hey!, so i was watching the passion of Christ , the movie. so it made me think a lot afterwards, when the movie was over i went upstairs and looked out the window and there i saw a single shining sparkle, it was white and it stayed there, floating in top of a tree branch ( 5 meters away ), my mother was in the other room so i called her to come and see it, the closer she got to me the less bright the light was, it ended up disappearing and she could not see it. i was like… ok this is not normal. Any ideas?

  23. it was just one light, really small. like a star in front of me. not the same lights or sparkles the others describe. And i did not feel protected or good or anything like that, it sort of scared me, but i guess i was just afraid because it was weird. but stil…

  24. I have been reading your articles after seeing sparkles of what looks like white flecks of light flying around. I see them often when I am sitting outside my deck in broad daylight.. I though at first it was just my vision acting up but after watching them for awhile I noticed they are speck so light, not dust! But it does looks like dust flying around.. I’ve been reading that children specifically can see them but I am 24 years old :p I really have no idea what it is but I somehow find it comforting, like I am seeing SOMETHING even if I don’t know what it is

  25. We All Have the Ability to Experience Sparkles

    If you close your eyes very tightly and rub them with your hands, then open them, you see sparks of light. This is a natural affect due to the pressure. But with energetic or spirited sparkles it works the other way around. You must lose your focus, not wanting to focus on anything. It works better when you are in your bedroom at night after you turn off the light. (I usually close my eyes as soon as the light goes out, because when I was a child, I could see these particles moving around, forming designs. It scared me so badly that I learned to close my eyes to keep from seeing it.) but it is a great experiment to try.

    Turn out your light. Lay in your bed with your eyes open. After your eyes get accustomed to the darkness, everything will have a haze, or film covering it. You might even see it moving around. Yes, you might even think you are going crazy! But believe me, you are not. The more you play with this concept, the more you will experience.

    This is in response to the first few statements made on this site and I have copied the text that I can relate to and that I believe is a very accurate method of trying to see spirits/energy.

    For me personally I have had horrible vision since I was 10 years old, can’t see farther than 6 inches away from my face before everything would become “fuzzy.” I would put my glasses on and I would have “normal” 20/20 vision. Over time I began to realize that without my glasses on I was actually seeing energy or spirits very easily because of my limited vision. Recently I had Lasik eye surgery to correct my limited vision problems. I wondered if I would still be able to see the “fuzz” after my surgery, and I do. To see it now though, I just have to stop and look at different “plains” to see them. For example if your field of vision allows you to see 30 ft away, look at everything that is maybe 10 ft away, or 15 ft away. Don’t allow your eyes to look the full 30 ft and start looking at what you can see at different distances, and if you look at what is truly their you’ll see for yourself. Sorry I’m not very good at writing what I really want to say but orbs and spirits are all around us all the time, and you can see them in the form of “fuzz”. I am now 32 years old and I have seen them forever, they are there, its kind of like blinking and breathing, our body does these things naturally so we don’t even think about it, well apply this to spirits and energy and orbs. Our body/brain is so used to them being around us all the time it doesn’t even acknowledge them consciously because they are a part of normal everyday functionality. Look at what is truly there and you will see. If you ask someone what color the sky is, people will say blue, but look again, its blue, pink, purple, white, gray… look at what is truly there.

    • Thanks so much TRUTH~~ for co-signing my explanation. And for adding another manner of seeing at different distances. Yes, your body really does experience these things! We just have to allow and be aware of them…M

    Very interesting explanation, My interest is a bit different.
    When I look into my new girlfriends eyes, I can see extremely small
    sparkles & flashes of Gold,Silver & rainbow colors.
    Hears the strange,we ask anyone else if they see them, and they to a
    person say no,also she can’t see them either.
    Maybe it’s just me,but anyone else eyes I look at, nothing is their
    I really have come to believe I could be seeing some kind of manifestation
    of her actual spirit. I told her that if & when she see it in my eyes, it will
    confirm that we are each others (true soul mates) may she see mine soon!

  27. Finally , I am not nuts ! When I go to bed and turn out the lights it gets hazy and the sparkles come out …..sometimes the haze moves , okay it is always moving . Sometimes there is color to small orbs of haziness that seem to move close to me. I can actually move the small hazy orbs ( that have sparkles ) to my husband and there they sit . When I put my arm up into the sparkle haze , my hand becomes wispy like and hard to make out my fingers and the sparkles dance all over it. So I’m not sure what this is but it is quite delightful.

    • Thanks so much Annie~ Yes, it is delightful! And it is your ability to see with your Spiritual Vision, rather than your physical eyes. Some thing we all should remember how to do…M

  28. I was curious what blue and purple sparkles were i have seen big sparkels (about the size of golf balls) around my angel. Mirrior and curious of what it means

  29. my son had this 2 day white shimmering sparkles moveing round his head he was amazed the heath worker asked him if he been taken any tablets, he never had them b4 n he is very hypo n troubled i hope someones looking over him i do worry about him

    • Hi Linda~ Sometimes we have to look at the possibility of there being a physical imbalance. I only work with the spiritual phenomena of sparkles. Thank you for sharing your experience, and blessings to you both…M

  30. Hi i was very happy to come across this site, when i was a child even before i remeber i always saw sparkles but they was fine made me feel safe and content. Alot of occurances happened in my bedroom and on the nights that the sparkles wasnt there i felt uneasy and dare not shut my eyes, i felt there was something bad in my room if i did close my eyes my head was busyit was like watching an untuned fuzzy tv the violence of it and busyness, i was paralyzed with fear every time, and when i woke i told my parents things it would been impossible for me to know there is alot more went on but not really sparkles emma louise.

  31. I’m happ I’m not the only one experiencing this I’m 30 yrs old but as far back as I can remember I would always b able to see these sparkles wich you referred to…if I had to describe them it would b like tiny little points of light floating around and more recently while observing these little points of light with in them a more steady or focused kind of light appears n then disappears all while the tiny ponts of lights are still flashing…but I only see these lights during the day especially wen I’m looking into a clear sky……

  32. Im hoping someone can help me out. My 4 year old has been seeing sparkles for quite some time now and they freak her out so she chooses to sleep in her brothers room. NOW she says they hurt her. When i question her how she said they are pink sparkles that land all over her body and it hurts her. could this be possible to feel sparkles? Thanks

    • Serena~~ I have never heard of sparkles hurting when they fall on you before. My first impressions on this are that someone may have inadvertently asked her if it hurt, or she may be using this fear as an attention getter. You must judge for yourself, and engage her in a conversation about it. Do not comment negatively about anything she says, but open her to talk freely. You may get your answers from her. /// If anyone else reading these comments has heard of this, please leave your thoughts…M

  33. I googled you post here, and am pleased I am like many who’ve experienced this! I’m not crazy lol… great readd, and well put for us trying to understand.

  34. I hope someone can help me understand what I saw when I was younger… it’s slightly different than what is posted above.
    One night when I was 6 years old I had a bad dream so I went to my parents room to sleep with them. I couldn’t fall asleep and was up just looking at the room when I had then saw this single white sparkle descending from the ceiling. I thought it was just a dust particle lit up by the passing cars through the side of the blinds. But dust particles would fade and slightly reappear and what I saw held its sparkling intensity the whole time and it floated very, very slowly downwards. I was so unsure as to what I was seeing that I just laid there watching it slowly float down by the end of their bed. I then thought maybe it was just a sparkle, so I went to the end of the bed to see where it landed on floor, but saw nothing. It was odd, but since I didn’t see anything on the ground I sort of doubted what I saw.
    After a few minutes when I laid back, 3 large, chunky, Casper looking ghosts came in doing a limbo train right by the bedroom door. They had big smiles and I thought they were so cute and funny. After a couple of minutes of their dancing a ghostly/translucent net dropped over them to capture the ghosts. The 3 ghosts then started crying. I can’t remember what happened next… if they had disappeared possibly or what, but I remember not knowing what to do and had no idea why they were frightened and crying. I then turned onto my side to try to start sleeping. When I turned I was facing where my mom puts her clothing (it was a pile on a bench), this angry, witch-looking woman appeared (just her head and shoulders) and was trying to grab me. She had long bony fingers with long sharp nails. She would extend her arm out as far as she could with her fingers all spread then slowly close like a claw to grab me. I was so frightened and all I could do was lean away closer towards my mom. The witch-looking ghost woman tried around 3 times to grab me before she disappeared back into my mom’s clothes. I know I had closed my eyes real tight so that I wouldn’t see it anymore. I KNOW I was awake the whole time, and I stopped squeezing my eyes shut when I heard birds chirping and knew it was morning and took a peep to see that nothing was there any more.
    I have thought that maybe I was just a child, maybe I was asleep, maybe items in the room just looked a certain way…. but I truly do know this all happened while I was awake. I did doubt the whole sparkle thing too. But when I was 13 and again when I was 15 or so, I have seen the sparkle again at night as I was laying in bed but in my room by my closet, floating down very slowly again. I know for sure when of the more recent times the sparkle was red. I watched one of them descend and fall to the end of the bed and I went to go look and saw nothing, but since I was frightened from what I saw years ago, I shut my eyes really tight and refused to even peek.

    If someone can please help me understand what this sparkle is it would be much appreciated. Thank you!

  35. Dear Melissa Leath,

    Thanks for the understanding what the sparkles are!

    I’e been trying to read upon what these sparkles are, that I am seeing more at night.
    I see them when I am lying in bed with my husband, who also can see them too! All of a sudden something is flowing above me, some times they look like they swimming in a little group also I have seen sparkles kinda like stars, Looks yellow, some times I have seen white of some kind of shape. Almost every night I see some kind of light above me, no noise or nothing. past couple weeks been seeing these sparkles of spiritual engerys spell wrong,

    Thanks again, for your time on writing what the sparkles are!
    Now I know what they are and not be afraid of them, I am adult, been dealing with this since was lil kid, but knowledge more when I was a young teenager!

  36. wow I have only recently experienced similar (difficult to describe) floating energy, white transparent, very dark purple and the move, starting always on my right in the corner of my bedroom, always at night when I have turned off the light, I was not afraid the first time, so I tried to force it to appear it as the experience was so very beautiful and from the right of my room it filled the whole room , when I tried to force it to appear it would not appear but again it appeared but I grew a little scared this time as it was the colour black and I freaked a little an put the light back on. last night I saw it again but went with it an it was so beautiful I even put my hand in the moving energy and made shapes and it was as if I had put my hand into a lamp and it glowed and the movement of my hand the energy or whatever it is the spiritual realm danced with me it is truly remarkable I felt so calm am not sure how long it went on, maybe hours. I thought I would be tired today but I woke up early full of energy. I have recently become a Christian, born again, as the lord saved my life and did for me what Dr’s could not do an tried many of them for 21 years. Therefore I am sure it is another dimension in the spiritual world. Now I no longer watch TV and play video games am connected more spiritually the more I let go of this world and worldly things. It is hard to describe the lights or energy as I refer to them, I have searched on the internet for similar stories and wow am so happy to read other people can also experience this wonder, they were the light of true reality breaking through the distorted reality which we have been accustomed to perceiving, random flashes of light and white glowing. Thank you so much for your website and everyone for their honest comments, it has helped immensely. God bless you all x from ali in North Wales, United Kingdom.

    • Alison~ I am so glad you came across this article too. And I really appreciate your description of your experiences. Everyone sees the energies in different ways. And yours is beautiful too. You mentioned being afraid of the black color at first. But I have always looked at black as being a very sacred color (for example: the robes of priests and nuns) so I would not be concerned about the color, but enjoy the blessings that are shared with you! Much love…M

  37. Thank you SO MUCH for this post. I started seeing the beautiful light particles (again) a few months ago. I say again bc I have always seen them, like you said, but blew them off. I never fully saw their brightness but I’ve always seen fuzzy blobs floating and always thought it was due to my poor eyesight. But a few months ago while outside I kept seeing something out of the corner of my eye and I finally turned slowly and let my eyes relax, lost focus and voila! I saw the magic and I can now see it anytime I want, usually when the sun is out. I want to quote you bc you mention very true statements, at least for me!

    “While others (especially, smaller children, see them during the daylight, even outside in the Sun. Others see them swirling in patterns, sometimes in different colors. These people have said they occasionally see black or dark sparkles, but not very often.”

    Yes, I see a beautiful pattern and they are sacred geometrical shapes. Very intricate and even the smallest pattern within the large pattern is geometrical. When u look at the design from a large viewpoint I see bigger shapes made from the smaller shapes. I tried to paint what I see, I could share it with you. I also started to see dark, like black, flecks a few years ago and thought I had an eye problem. Doc checked my eyes out but she said I didn’t have any of the eye diseases that are linked to seeing black spots. You’re right, I didn’t see them often and u actually don’t see them anymore. Perhaps that is what a star child sees before their eyes are reopened. Not sure. But I’m so happy someone wrote about this, I’ve only shared this experience with my friends and wrote it in my journal. I’m going to reblog this!!! <3

  38. Hello, I would like to share my experience with the “dancing lights”, as I like to call them. Two years ago my twin brother died from cancer at the age of 39. We had a small memorial celebration for him afterward in Colorado, where my parents live and on the way home to Texas, my husband and kids stopped at a hotel in New Mexico. I felt so weighted down with worry, fear and sadness that night and while everyone was sleeping, I was crying in the darkness of this hotel room when I saw this beautiful light on the wall in the form of a flower that was constantly blooming and changing colors. It was the most beautiful thing I had ever seen and I just felt like it was my brother, trying to tell me that he was alright and that everything else was going to be fine and immediately all my worries had subsided and I felt this great sense of relief and calm.
    What made me find this site today is that just last weekend, we were celebrating my parents’ 50th wedding anniversary at my older brother’s house in Colorado and the night before the celebration, I had gone to bed and I was thinking of my brother. In my mind I was speaking to him and telling him I knew he was there and I asked him to make sure we had a nice day for the party. Then on the wall right at the head of the bed, I saw this brilliant patterns of color and light, mostly blues and deep purples. I just remember thinking that it was happening again and feeling so utterly grateful for this gift and feeling like the light was love. I kept thinking that it was going to go away and I was so mesmerized by the patterns, then I decided I would reach out to touch it this time and when i did, my hand became indistinguishable, blending into the lights and colors and I held my hand up and the energy formed a kind of ball of brilliant colors in my hand and there was a slight warmth and tingling. It was the most amazing experience of my entire life. I told my husband about it and he said that my youngest son, prior to me coming downstairs to bed had gotten up from the airbed he was sleeping in beside us and was sleep-walking to the corner of the room we were in and he held out his hand and said, “it’s right there” I couldn’t believe it! I am a worry-wart, I always have been but this makes me less afraid of death. I believe there is only supposed to be love and what I saw was love. Thank you all for sharing your experiences!

  39. Thanks so much Kate for this lovely, and loving story! Yes, our spirits do live on. Yes, our loved ones who have passed from this earth wish to express their love and support. And Yes, the lights you have witnessed express this love. //// Will you allow me to share some of your story in a book I am writing called Kids that See Sparkles? (Of course, I will keep your identity private) Blessings…M

  40. Melissa, of course you may share my story! :) Thank you for giving us all a place to share these experiences; its nice to know there are others with similiar stories!

  41. Pingback: I see sparklies | iTHiNKiWRiTE

  42. / came across this site after googling. My mum is currently very poorly in hospital so last night I woke up early hours got out of bed for couple of hours as I couldn’t sleep as I was so worried and troubled. I got back in bed, still troubled then saw what I can only describe as a purple haze shimmering just outside my bedroom, it lasted a couple of minutes and then went. I then felt the deepest sense of calm ever, the room just felt so peaceful, and I thought finally I can go to sleep, drifted off and slept solid for 3 hours. It wasn’t a frightening experience, quite the contrary it was strangely comforting, I haven’t a clue what it was but it certainly helped calm my anxieties and help me sleep.

  43. Hello all,
    I find this so interesting. I have been seeing these “sparkling lights” now on and off for about 3 years. My first experience was while sitting on the couch watching TV. I saw this light thing flicker for about 3 sec. It was about 5-6 feet off the ground at the front door. I kind of freaked out when I saw it. Since that first time I have seen similar lights, all at around the same height, and all either during the day or with lights on in the room. Now as of late I have been experiencing missing items. 2 cell phones to be exact. Both were on the kitchen counter and both gone without a trace. No explanation. This isn’t the first time. As a young boy I have experienced these things. Any help woul be appreciated.

    • Thanks for sharing your experiences Domingo. The lights are very normal and I am glad you told about them. I am not sure about the missing items. But I have experienced it once in awhile. They always showed up later. I hope other people reading this will have some insight. Blessings…M

  44. Thank you for posting this Melissa. I used to see these dancing particles of mutli colored lights / sparkles when I was a little girl and I can still remember them 30 some odd years later. I used to lie in bed at night and watch these waves of little sparkling lights moving in such a fluid motion about my bedroom. It was never scary to me. It helped me fall sleep seeing these little lights moving about. I used to reach out and touch them and would get mad when I couldn’t actually feel them. I remember asking my mom about these little lights and she couldn’t answer me; in fact, I think she just said it was my eyes being tired and adjusting to the darkness. I always thought it was more than that though… So I just accepted it as my thing I was able to see and enjoyed the shows these sparkles put on for me. I eventually stopped seeing them when I was 5 or 6 but I can certainly remember seeing them and being frustrated when I couldn’t feel them.
    So again, thanks for posting this information… Nice to know I am not the only one to have seen these. :-)

  45. I am an INFJ personality (intorverted intuitive) & am very empathic. I have been experiencing something similar to this. It often happens right as I wake up..although I’m wide awake I see the particals coming together to form moving visions/scenes w/hazy moving edges. Recently I saw police cars & people searching a field & today I saw old 2 story houses w/pine trees behind them (as if i were driving past them). One house in particular was white wood w/an octagon window on the second story. (the visions are detailed). I tried opening/closing each eye & it did not seem to affect it much altho’ the particles would occasionally disperse then merge back together, I get this feeling that maybe it means something as if they are searching for someone. IDK what to do about it & the few people I’ve told don’t understand it (neither do I tho’) I also have problems w/absorbing other peoples energy & emotions & confusing it w/my own. Does this sound familiar to U & if so what should I do ?! *lost* I have also experienced shadow figures in the same room on one occasion I could hear an electric noise & it felt as if they were trying to pull me down…It was scary. Sounds crazy so I don’t talk about it much so IDK where to turn for guidance.

  46. I was so excited to find your articles on this subject!! I just ordered your book and can not wait to read it. I need to give a little background, before I get to the sparkles.
    About a year ago, my son started seeing a spirit/ghost of a 12 year old girl, who he says looks exactly like his older sister. Lets call this spirit “May”. He can clearly see her, and can describe her in great detail. My son is of course uncomfortable when “May” visits, its startling to wake up in the night and have May just watching him. He also sees her while he is awake. Now on to the sparkles:
    Over the past month or so, my son has revealed to me that he sees little dots in the air. I asked him to explain. He said they range in size from a speck of dust to a grain of sand (super itty bitty) and are all different colors of the rainbow. He says that they are like diamonds, in that they seem to reflect light – he explained it to me like when the sunlight is reflected off of a shiny coin. He says that there are millions of them – everywhere. He sees them all the time, day and night, with his eyes open. He says they are all around, but if he puts his hand in front of his eyes (about 6 inches), the sparkles won’t be in between his hand and his eyes, but all around and behind – kind of like there is a personal space around him. He says that he has always seen them and thought everyone could. He also says that along with the sparkles are “drawings” (his words), He drew them for me and they look like some type of symbol – not really a shape, more like a design – there are 2 in particular that he sees. He says these drawings are colorless and like glass – see through. They are much bigger than the sparkles and they just gently fall like snow. I explained to my son that these sparkles are the spirits of loved ones, angels, etc here to protect us (really have no idea – but want him to feel safe, and b/c I do believe our loved ones are always with us, it didn’t seem strange to me that perhaps, he could “see” them). Now, back to May. My son says that if closes his eyes and empties his mind (his words!) and then opens his eyes, the sparkles merge together and form the vision of May. He says that she is surrounded by a glowing multi colored light – all the colors of the rainbow. He explained it as if the sparkles were the pixels in the TV and they formed the vision of May, the same way the pixels, form the images we see on the TV – this kid blows my mind sometimes!! Upon further discussion with my son, he revealed that he sees a thin outline of color around people. He can’t see it in the daylight or in the complete dark, it’s best in a dimly lit room, or a room that is dark with the door slightly ajar letting in a bit of light.He sees green around me, red around his father, violet around his sister (again his words – I find it interesting that he used the word violet and not purple), and he sees blue around himself. If I put my hand up in the air with my fingers stretched apart, he sees the thin green outline around my fingers and if I move my hand quickly, like I’m swatting at a fly, he sees the green color trail behind like a sparkler. He gets a huge kick out of this. Now – this is all new to me, and I’ve been googling everything possible. Is my son seeing auras? Are the sparkles connected to the auras? Can May or any spirit for that matter have an aura? He says May is the only one he sees with a multicolored light around them -everyone else (those alive and kicking!), he just sees one main color. Now I must also say that my son has always been very spiritual – we have always noticed that about him – long b4 May started visiting and all this sparkle/aura stuff came to light. He is extremely sensitive, compassionate and completely selfless. I do believe that it is a gift from God and that is what we are telling him. I just want him to feel safe and blessed. I am really hoping that I can share some of the stories in your book with him, so he knows he is not alone and that he is very special. Thank you so much for reading – sorry I rambled on, but it’s not something I can discuss with many people.

    • April~ I really enjoyed your son’s description of what he sees! Yes, he is very detailed and that is so cool… He is seeing aura energy around people, yes. The sparkles are different. They are angels and spirit guides using energy in a special way so we can see it. And I have the feeling that May is a guardian angel there is assist him. /// You will find answers to your other questions when you get the book. And, yes, please share it with your son. /// Thank you so much for your comments. If you are so led, please go back to Amazon and leave a review about the book…M/

      • Melissa- thank you so very much for getting back to me. I am hoping ” May” is indeed a guardian angel, but am curious if guardian angels can be a spirit that lived on earth as a human? I’m fairly confident that I have found out who May might have been- lets just say I was given some very clear signs about this- it’s a whole other story! I believe my brother, who died when he was 5 years old – over 30 years ago, is somehow involved- again very confident on this. The thing is that May is not someone that is related to our family in anyway- she has no connection that I can find. So, could it be possible for her to be a guardian angel? So interesting, but kind of frustrating, as I have so many unanswered questions. I will certainly comment on your book once I receive and read it!

  47. Love that I have found this Blog and I too ordered your book for more indepth information and explanation. Both of our children have seen “dots” in every color and have told us of them in the past and we of course kind of thought it was their imagination. Just recently our 8 year old daughter brought them up again. She does not call them sparkles but “dots”. Lots of them in every color, “like the rainbow”! She can see them as I sit next to her and it amazes me the look on her face when she watched them around the room and describes them. She smiles and watches intently. Sometimes a group of them will swirl around like a “tornado”. She says they can go through the walls and through the blankets on her bed. When I opened my hand she said “mom they’re in your hand, can’t you see them?”. My husband and I do not see them and my 6 year old son does not see them either. When our son described seeing dots a few years ago they were shaped like “robots” at times. There was a night I can recall him lying in our bed and he was just looking up saying “mom don’t you see all those things flying around us?”. He was nervous. He has not talked about seeing anything anymore but our daughter is very descriptive. She said she use to see bigger red ones at night that she didn’t really like, they made her uncomfortable and “all the little dots went away when the red bigger ones came”. She said she no longer sees the red ones. She said they make designs sometimes. I asked her if they have a face and she said I don’t think so, they never get that close to see, and they are so small. After reading your blog I came home and explained to her about other children seeing them and she is not the only one and I explain she is seeing energy  She was very excited to not be the only one and that she was glad I believed her. She is a very honest child and I never didn’t believe her I just thought it was her imagination. What do you think the “bigger red ones” were vs the smaller ones? Why the difference and why are they not around anymore? She also described her favorite ones are the purple ones with green around them. They absolutely have a positive energy for sure as I can see the amazement and calmness she has when she sees them. I wish we saw them too  Thank you for your Blog and setting our wonders at ease.

    • Thanks Melissa for sharing your story about Sparkles! Your children are amazing. I have a feeling that the big red ones were there for a special purpose. When that was accomplished, they moved on. Blessings to your family, and I hope you enjoy the book…M/

    • Melissa- your daughter sounds so similar to my son! I would really love to chat with you more on this as I would love to have some support from someone in my shoes! I’m sure you feel the same! Would love to share my sons story with you! Is there some way I could contact you? If you are interested of course! I’m on Facebook as April Sampson. Really hope to discuss this more with you- I have no friends or family that are experiencing this. There is one thing I am certain of- our children are extremely blessed! Take care.

      April

      • Absolutely April!! I’d love to chat with you. What state and city are you located in? Your name is very common on FB ;)

  48. Hi Melissa!
    Thanks for getting back to me! I’m actually in British Columbia, Canada and the city is Chilliwack. Really looking forward to chatting with you! Hopefully that should narrow it down- pretty sure I’m the only April Sampson, here in Chilliwack!
    April

  49. Sorry April I am unable to find you on FB :( What is your email address, maybe we can connect that way first then figure out FB :)

  50. I googled ”sparkles in the room” and came to your website. I am a doctor by profession, once in the month of march 2013, I was on duty 24/7 in a hospital and during the night time I came back to my duty room and thought of lying down. I switched off the lights and had a nap whilst browsing internet on my laptop…after 15 mts I woke up and i saw many sparkles in front of me…..they were of different colours, like green, dark pink, magenta, violet, purple, gold…I was astonished, at first I thought”omg!! is it my eyes!! or my brain!! I sat up straight and rubbed my wide open eyes and still the sparkles stayed and and I switched on the light and switched it off again, but the sparkles remained….It was like for about 10mts and then it was pitch black….After that huge changes started occuring in my life which were scary like lost a job, visa rejected, but got everything immediately, like lost a job on 4th april and found a new job on 16th april…But until date I have not seen those sparkles again. I have moved to a different hospital and place, moved house. I wonder what is your view on this….what were those sparkles…what did they mean

    • Greetings Mamta~ This is a very interesting story! It is interesting because you have only seen the sparkles that once — and for a really limited time frame. My thoughts on this is that you were in a very tiring state of life at that time. When you went to sleep, and woke to the sparkles, it was because of your physical energy. You were in a weakened place in your life. And the sparkles, or angels and spirit guides as I refer to them, were surrounding you and preparing you for change. This I believe happens to all of us. but we all may not see the energies when they are around. This was a special situation, and you were blessed to witness it! I am glad that the changes have taken you to a better life experience. And thanks for sharing your story…M/

  51. Dear Melissa, I am so thankful that you took time t read and reply. But, yes, I was very weak at that time, insecure and also that one week, dont know why, i had started chanting a buddhist mantra and many other buddhist prayers …it was like my duty to chant. I am not a buddhist, still….The whole week in the hospital, in my duty room, i used to get up, take shower, chant the mantras and then go to the ward…when i come back for lunch, i used to again chant….that evening I went into a sleep whilst chanting mantras, even in the ward I had ”nam myoho renge kyo” running in my mind. I could not understand why, but yes may be, because I was afraid of the intuition I was getting….which i was denying….but everything is clear now…..all that was so dramatic and i feel like i stand on a different platform and viewing it…it was all meant to happen….I had been taking in the exploitaton by the employers too much and it all ended very dramatically…But again all is well, that ends well. I have moved to south west of england now and its a sea coast….its lovely. would be lovely to walk by the water…so peaceful.
    Regards
    Mamta

  52. Hi i have recently experience seeing a gold sparkling cluster like glitter i have seen couple orbs in my 26 years but not many, ive heard things before an seen shadow movement not to much but i do getting feelings mainly like im not alone. After seeing glitter the 4th time in less than a month i wondered if what i was seeing was energy? My mother is wiccan an my 5 yr old told me of seeing a ghost like 3 times maybe a year ago but wasnt sure if it was true or not. I am so curious to if this is paranormal?

    • Hi Shana~ Thank so much for your comments! The word ‘Paranormal’ is very misunderstood. Because I truly think of these events you mentioned as being Normal. These things have always been happening, and seem to be more frequent, even for folks that do not believe in it! It has a lot to do with the Veil between the worlds thinning. So we are more aware of what has always been there. Many blessings to you and your family…M

  53. Hello I am a new massage therapist and this is the first article I have come across on sparkles googling it the best I could describe it. I’m seeing these sparkles which I call glitter like objects that flash so quickly I almost miss them . Maybe I have always had it but as a new therapist they are becoming stronger and more obvious I need help I’m not a child seeing sparkles but a adult 24 yrs old id like more information. Just two days ago I seen a brighter and a bigger sparkle and it surprised me. What does this mean Do colors mean certain things. I have so many questions please email me thank you!

  54. As far as i can rmbr i used 2 c ‘things’ in sky with open eyes and after i grew up i dont c those thing anymore bt i do c sparkling lights wen i close my eyes on my eyelids. N things happen in real wen i say or dream it, its like i knew it b4. Is it normal?

  55. I have been seeing bubble like things in sky as a child, wen i grew up i ignored it, bt i still see sparkles of light on my eyelids wen i close it. Is it normal?

  56. Hi Melissa – I found this post through Google and am so relieved to know that I am not imagining things and also that I am not alone in my experiences.
    3 times now I have experienced a glowing pulsating or swirling light – a bit like Aurora Borealis but white or very pale green – it has twice come from the wall and floated directly above our bed and since we moved house it tonight appeared in the left hand corner of our bedroom, spreading out to about 1/4 of the ceiling. It turns a pitch dark room into being light enough that I can see the outline of my hand when I hold it up.
    Within this glow sparkles appear – tiny white twinkling stars that seem to come and go, sometimes they are colored.
    I have closed my eyes and rubbed my eyes, but they are still there. It lasts about 10 minutes to 30 minutes.
    Tonight I really focused on the lights and the glow seemed to come together into a human like shape (head, shoulders, arms) with the sparkles being in the chest area.
    As soon as I tried to rationalise what I was seeing, it spread back out into the swirling glow again.
    The first 2 times I had this experience related to my dad who passed away 12 months ago next week. I was feeling heavy, overwhelming grief and had been sobbing deeply earlier in the night – the appearance of the light and sparkles gave me immediate sense of peace and calmness.
    Tonight was the third time – I am feeling quite sick at the moment and also feeling the pain of the anniversary of losing my wonderful dad. I was rolling around in bed crying and said out loud that I can’t handle this (feeling unwell) and at first an orb appeared so bright I first thought it was someone with a flashlight. I closed and opened my eyes and looked around the room but there was nothing that could have reflected or shone a light. I relaxed and then the glow started to light up the room.
    I woke my partner, but he could not see it. He said the room was pitch dark to him. He doesn’t think I’m crazy, but thinks there is a normal explanation (ie. my eyes are playing tricks) but I know what I saw was real.

  57. I see the lights all the time and the sparkles sometimes. I saw them again just now. So i did a google search on them again. I’ll try that test you mentioned.

  58. NO glitter in the house,,,, waking up from sleeping with glitter on my or even after i takes a shower i comes out with glitter more sometimes ! It been round three weeks!

  59. I see them as bright flashes and sometimes dark as if in the small space their is no matter just blank it’s very interesting I feel it’s a sign I’m on the right path and consciously picking up what I need to or to pay closer attention to what is going on.. They are random for me and come in many colours and absence of colour I like how you wrote that when the lights are off it looks like static that is true and it moves like a living field, outside …the source field becomes more visible

  60. Hi Melissa – I lost my 20 yr old daughter a little over 10 months ago…I strongly believe in life after death as do all my children..I have asked my daughter Kayla who passed to please give me a sign that she is at piece.To this day I find it hard to believe she is no longer here with me.My grieving is very strong at times.However since her passing I have been coming across blue and black butterflies a lot …If first stared when my daughter was still alive we were at a butterfly place, and this one blue and black butterfly kept trying to land on her and it did..Now since she passed I see them everywhere( I don’t mean the living ones)..They may appear in a photo that has crossed by me or I have even had a friend lend me a book and there on the front cover was a blue and black butterfly mind you the book had nothing to do with butterflies. I feel these butterflies keep crossing my path from a sign from my daughter..in fact 3 days ago I got my first tattoo of a blue and black butterfly with her name on it (crazy eh)..Now my question about this light I just saw last night…I was woken up in the middle of the night,not sure as to what woke me up but when i did I felt the need to look in the corner of my bedroom..There I have a few picture of my daughter and I have a blue butterfly beside them on the wall..When I looked up I saw a very bright blue light (very bright)..I know I wasn’t dreaming this blue light was real I looked at it for what seemed to disappear after I blinked a few times…Now that it’s morning I am questioning If it was real or not.I went over to the corner to see if my daughter left me a sign but nothing…Can you help me.am I grieving so much that I am making myself pretend she is sending me signs?Does this blue light mean anything?

    • Oh Linda~ Thanks so much for reaching out. Grief is something that will ebb and flow through your life. But it never goes away. It just becomes part of your life. But to answer your question, yes, this is your daughter. It’s interesting that you looked for some sign that she might have left. Because the sign was the beautiful blue light that she woke you to see. The light was not her, per se. But she was able to manipulate the spirit energies to present it so you could see it. It happens in the Spirit World, and is manifested in such a way that we humans can see it. –sort of like you are looking into the Spirit World!

      How wonderful that you are open enough to see it. And your daughter is able to present her love to you in this manner.
      Thank you so much for sharing this with us…M/

  61. My Grandfather passed away in 2007. Afterwards my grandmother moved in with me and my family. She was sick and was in and out of the hospital. She often talked to my Grandfather in her sleep. She even talked to him one day while she was awake in the ICU and a nurse asked her who she was talking to and she told the nurse that she was talking to her husband. The nurse told her no one was there and she told the nurse that he was there sitting on the edge of her bed by her feet. She was a very religious woman. She passed away 1 year and 7 days exactly after my grandfather did. Shortly after her passing I saw her in my house. 3 times. One time about 3 weeks after she passed away i was standing at the stove cooking and i glanced into the living room and saw her laying there in her hospital bed. (she had a hospital bed and stayed in our living room for about 8 months) We had gotten rid of the hospital bed 3 days after she passed away. Another time i was in the kitchen and the light in the hallway was on and i glanced down the hallway and i seen the back of her. She looked like she did a few months before she passed away. Another time i was going to the restroom in the middle of the night and i opened the door and she was sitting on the toilet. I had seen her in all these places so much that i thought it was just my brain used to it. I didnt think that it could actually be her. I was taking a shower about a year later and i saw these sparkles, glitter, lights that i just struggled to describe. It caught be by surprise and i was in awe. I just stood there watching them float and move about. I felt so calm and warm when they were there. Afterwards i got kind of worried that it may be something medical. We move out of this house and into a new one. The sparkles still came in the shower. Sometimes me and my partner would shower together and they would never come when my partner was in there, only when i was alone. They stopped coming so frequent maybe once every 3 months. We then moved out of that house with my family and into a house of my own with my partner. I still get the sparklies in the shower. and its still not very often but, i have started to get them else where. I will be at work and the only one in my office and they will just appear. I have been to the doctor and nothing is wrong with me. My eyesight is perfect. I told my mother about seeing my grandmother in our old house and she told me that she had seen her too but was afraid to tell anyone because they wouldnt believe her. It scared her and i told her not to be scared that it was just my grandmother (her mom) and that she wasnt going to hurt us that she was just there to let us know that she was still there and watching over us. My mother also had something weird happen to her when my grandfather passed away, the night before he passed away she was sleeping on our couch and she heard a very loud knock on the back door and no one uses our back door it was practically impossible for anyone to get to the door to even knock on it.. my grandpa was notorious for knocking loudly on the door. He would used his pocket knife to tap on the door to make his knock distinct. She said it sounded exactly like that. The next day he passed away. She feels like it was him telling her goodbye. My aunt and grandmother on my Fathers side were also “gifted” as they call it. My grandmother often had premonitions but she was also mentally unstable so people didnt really believe her. My aunt also has premonitions and a strong intuition. I sometimes have dreams that parts of them come true and my intuition is very very strong. I can feel when things are going south in certain situations before they do. I learned to accept that my grandmother is always with me and i am always comforted by her visits and i am extremely eager to learn anything about any of this that could help me communicate with her or use my gifts better.

    • Thanks for your comments Ashley! Isn’t life interesting? I love it when people share their experiences. You should be able to develop the communication with your grandmother but meditating on a regular basis. Picture her in your minds eye, and talk to her (in your mind). Soon you will be having regular conversations. You also might want to read my book Psychic Integrity, The Respected Practice of Modern Day Mystics. You will find a link to it on this blog page. It takes you through step-by-step how to develop this gift Thanks!

  62. When I focus at one point I start seeing everything in purple, it varies from light purple to straight black, contrasts are also getting harder. Any Idea what it is?

    • Hi Jacob,

      I have never heard of this before, as far as spiritual sight. So, if you feel that your eye sight is changing, you might want to see you eye doctor. I cannot evaluate this type of situation. Thanks so much for your comment, and I wish you all the best.

  63. I read the article of the child who said he/she could hear the sparkles. I too, had a similar experience. It happened mid day. I was babysitting two toddlers, as well as my son who was also a toddler. They were playing in the rec room when I went to go check on them. I heard the sparkler whiz passed us and then if hovered over the stairs and burned for a good 30 seconds or more. It was just like a sparkler a child would light up on the 4th of July, except it was as large as a softball…and the sparks flew out from the large bright light in the middle. My dog, who followed me downstairs was barking at it as it hovered. It burned long enough for me to try to get the dog away from it. It slowly burned out…just as a child’s sparkler would. We could clearly hear it burning too…and it was loud…..just a child’s sparkler. I called the fire department. My husband was a firefighter, so I knew all the members that showed up at my house. They did a thorough check, and were puzzled because there was no source of hydro energy anywhere near there. I’ve tried to find articles on this for a long time. That young child is the only one I know that has heard it. I have always had great intuition since I was a child. Today I do readings for people. I have the gift of contacting spirit world, and can usually give insight on what is coming. I don’t charge for the readings, as it gives me pleasure in knowing I am able to help people. It was after seeing the sparkle that I seemed to have increased my intuition. I see small lights floating around often….and usually in the corner of my eyes. Sometimes bright, sometimes not. As for the dog? She was hit by a car and died. I can’t say how long after, but for sure within a year.

  64. Hi Melissa i have bin wondering about this experience, i had it 2 times in my life ones when i was 9 and now i am 21 and i have saw it this week and looked it up and saw your name, its good to know that others have had the same thing happen to them, the first time lasted about 5 seconds, this week it lasted 2 seconds, my grand mother told me the first time the it was a sign from God that i was getting blessed and will be blessed and i had a vary good feeling as well and that i believe its true but has more to it, and that’s what i`m trying to look for is what is the real meaning of it and what it has to do with us..

    • Thanks Michell for your comment! I have been told by my Spirit Guides that these wonderful sparkles are special signals prepared by our loved ones. It lets us know how much we are loved and that they are always supporting us. You might enjoy my book, Does Your Child See Sparkles? Help for Parents Guiding Psychic Kids. Even though it has information about kids, there is much information about adults that remember seeing them as a child. There is a 90 year old woman who sees her deceased husband as sparkles! Cool, huh?

  65. I have had these sparkle encounters my whole life, when I was younger I just figured they where dust . As I got older I would see full on ghosts . Today was rememberence day and what I saw was very beautiful at the time of silence the clouds turned a yellowish color and all around the hundreds of people where the sparkles everywhere . It was a truly amazing exsperience . It can be hard seeing that many at a time because it impacts me emotionally , I think that’s the hardest part to learn to deal with .

  66. Okay…. I think what I am seeing has every thing to do with energy or some electro magnetic field, but who knows? At one time I was very much a sensitive, but getting knocked out (horse throwing me, twice) has the visions diminished somewhat. Now for the past year or so, I wake up in the middle of the night and see green lights, not always sparkles. And the places changes. One night it was in my bed buddy (you heat in microwave to get warm); looked like it was swarming. The next it was in one corner of room and last night, a first, I would pick my down blanket up and flames of green light would follow my hand. I would shake it up and down and watch it. It doesn’t scare me, I learned a long time ago what you cannot see is more imnportant than what you can see. But I decided to see if there were others out there experiencing anything like it….. this is something relatively new for me, just in the past couple of years and it doesn’t happen every night, but it is mesmerizing….. I am 60 years old and when I was young was terrified by the things I saw. I had no one to discuss it with and when I did it was usually when I was drinking lol. I have lost friends because I “saw” something. Once I called up a male friend several hundred miles away because I was terrified. I knew someone hit a tree (with vehicle) and died. Turned out it was his son. He screamed and kept asking “who told you” and I have not spoke with him since. His family shunned me after that. Good ole baptist belt I lived in. So its not like I haven’t experienced weird things, but the lights are fairly new. Any thots?

    • I feel the “lights” is a new version of what you were seeing earlier in your life. They are engineered by your spirit guides who are excited to works with you. Spend some time everyday in quiet time or meditation to open to their information. Blessings…M/

    • Barb, I asked my son to draw for me what he sees, and he drew something for both day and night even though I did not ask him to do that. His drawing for the night was a person lying in bed with large swirling green light above them. He is 7. How interesting that you can see green light too. I wish I could see everything that my son tells me he sees. It is hard to find people who don’t think you are weird so I don’t say much. My son attends Catholic school and I don’t think it would be received in a way that it positive.

  67. My son has seen “colors” around people since he could tell me he could. Lately (he is 7 now) he has been talking about seeing “sparkles” that look like “comets” as he describes them. I never bring it up to him, I allow him to talk about it when he wants to. He has also tested as intellectually gifted, so he is very articulate in his descriptions. He says that when a person has a lot of energy, the sparkles swirl more rapidly, and when they are low on energy, the sparkles hardly move. He can go on and on about it.
    I asked him to draw what it looks like yesterday, and I was very fascinated. Then, today, I typed in “my son sees auras” and I found your page, where you mention “Sparkles,” just as he has described. He has always had an “old soul” as many have told me. He is not frightened by it, and he says he can make it go away if he gets too distracted.
    Needless to say, I will be reading your book asap.

    • Marie~ How wonderful, and exciting that your son describes the sparkles so well. Thanks so much for sharing your experiences with us on this stream. And thank you in advance for reading the book, Does Your Child See Sparkles? Blessings…M/

  68. I was scrolling around facebook and I saw this thing about dead cells on eyes that made me remember of a past experience when I was a child in which I tried to google for answers if it was also an eye problem or whatever it could be.. I am currently 19 years old as of now and I’ve had this experience when I was 15 years younger or even more. Like you said you can get sparkles by closing your eyes and rubbing them which would cause sparkles from the pressure but with mine I just lay there, hugging my pillows as i close my eyes slowly and open it again and again..and this just came to me… I don’t really remember when was the last time I had this but all I could remember was …well I really never told anyone about the whole thing cause I just thought all experiences it for fun to sleep but as time went by I was able to see them more at often times and what’s real weird is I could control them…like they would start from a far and I could reach out my hand and make them twirl around my wrist or let them rest on my palm. I even remember asking my grandma before when she was still alive to open her hand so they can come :) and she would be real dumbfounded and just open it just cause I asked. I don’t know but at a young age I felt like it’s some blessing. I even used to asked them to come to me or heal my grandma and it really helped somehow.. What is even more weird is that I can pick the colors I want from pink to yellow or even a mixed. I am not sure if I was just a child full of imagination but now that I’ve seen this I got even more curious about it. It has been a real long time and all I can remember is I’m the type of girl who would stay up for hours and this just came to me…all those sparkles started coming one night and came every night since then, helping me to be able to sleep…But now I don’t know where could they be or what happened to this blessing. I hope you could help me, to tell me if I could have that blessing or what was really happening. Thank you so much.

    • Sometimes, Life just gets in the way. I am sure if you take time for quiet meditation each day, and remember to breathe, you will soon see your Sparkles friends again. Yes, it is a blessing…M/

  69. My child is a few weeks from turning 5 yes old he began mentioning seeing a dark spot that would cover him at night around 3yrs and 8mtths. We would pray every night and ask to not be bothered by the dark light, because he expressed the dark shape grabbed his arm really hard. I guess it may have worked he stopped speaking of it, but began mentioning a white light. I felt the white light was my best friend checking on him she had just passed away a few days prior. My son expressed it kind of scared him while i myself tearing up said ” Wendi if that is you, thank you for checking up on him but the light scares him. He hasn’t spoken of the light since. It is now a little over a year and my son is 4 almost 5 and he has been speaking g of seeing colors at night and they tickle him and make him itch (he doesn’t seem to care for them) we tell them to go away but he says it doesn’t work anymore. I need help on what I need to do or who I can see to help me help my son. I do believe we can experience seeing the deceased it happened to me one time as a child, but only once(but never forgotten). My son sleeps on his own and always has, but I gave in a few times this past year to help him when being bothered by the colors. OK…. while in my room I was snuggling with him helping him feel safe and he all of a sudden ducked under the covers I asked why?? He said mama that man standing at the end of the bed…. OK I am a spooky person so it took me a second to get brave enough to look and focus I did not seeing anything.I said baby you are being silly he sat up and said no mama he is right there still mama still!! My husbands father passed in 99 so I wonder if it may have been him checking in??? It freaked me out horribly but it is the only time an actual human that has been seen by him. We prayed and asked them to please go away he said he was still there so we snuggled up closed our eyes and chose not to look anymore. Either way the colors are my issue so much lately…. does anyone have a clue what is going on and how to calm it down something?? I promise I am not crazy but all of this makes me worry for my son and him feeling secure and not scared. He seems confused because he asked mama you don’t see the colors??? He says they are right there he always says they come out of his fan???

    • Thanks Jeanie~ Your son is seeing into the Spirit Realm dimension. Kids these days are able to see other dimensions — not just the third dimension — where we are used to seeing. So sometimes they confuse what they are really seeing. And it is difficult for them to distinguish one from the other. Sit quietly with him and ask him to pretend he has a mouth full of pink bubble gum. The pink color represents God’s Love of protection. Have him blow a huge bubble that completely covers him. This is a great way to protect himself. You might want to incorporate a special prayer with it too. State the obvious: “I am protected with God’s Light and Love. Only loving and positive energy will be with me. All spirit people that I do not feel good with will not show themselves.” Something like that. make sure it is in his own words, and it is said in a loving way. You might want to read my newest book, “Does Your Child See Sparkles? Help for Parents Guiding Psychic Children”. I am sure you will find some great information.

  70. Hello,
    I’ve started to see these sparkles when I was about 4 years old. I thought it was normal and never questioned it.
    But when i started to be in my teen age, the lesser and lesser i saw them, then one day they just completely disappeared. Do you know why they disappeared? Is there a way to see them again? Cause i know, when i was a child, seeing them at night made me feel comfortable and safe.
    I am 18 now.
    Would be happy for an answer! :)

    • Hi Steph~ I am so glad you found my blog! The best way to connect with the sparkles again is to find some quiet time when you can meditate (even five minutes helps). Ask you spirit guides and loved ones who are in spirit to show themselves to you again. You will soon see them. Blessings…M/

  71. It puzzles me to see such a large swath of people believing in ridiculous ideas that other made up simply because of something that’s not understood. In my experience I have lucid recollections p being able to lay in bed at the age of six and notice these particles flying about but the photos above are absolutely of no similarity and look closer to some mystical bullshit some self proclaimed psychic would draft. No, on the contrary, my conclusion was that I was a young person and could therefore see things more clearly than an adult and this could see details and such that weren’t visible to the adult naked eye. They would twist and swirl and I believed them to be the particles of the air being witnessed by my young unacclimated eyes but to believe some idiots are going around calling them spirits is profoundly idiotic. My theory on them when I was 5 had grand effects on me as I aged because I understood particle movement in a way few others did and astounded the people around me with my ideas on the aging mind in connection with the environment.

    • Grant~ Thanks so much for your thoughts. I agree that the idea of Sparkles, and what it is that people see is not understood. But we are not to judge what other people see, how they see it, or what they believe it is (Since it IS unknown and not understood.) When you talk about seeing particles floating around as a child, that is much different than what is commonly called sparkles. These sparkles are not large dust particles that are visible when a shaft of light is flowing through the window. It is, however, an energetic — or vibrational energy, being manipulated by spirit entities, such as angels. If you read the article above, and the related articles — along with the book, you will clearly understand that I have never said that these sparkles or lights are angels. but that they are energies that are arranged by spirit beings. (OH, the graphics in this article are only graphics — not real photos. I’ve never seen anyone able to take a real photo of a sparkle.) But there are people who really do see them just as they are depicted in these graphics. You may see them differently. We all see them as we can relate to the phenomena. As for “some mystical bullshit some self proclaimed psychic would draft,” I do not need to defend myself to that statement. My record stands alone. But to say that it is mystical bull***, is trying to discredit the hundreds of people who have lovingly reached out to me in question as to what they were seeing. They came to me for some kind of understanding. They do not believe it to be mystical bull***. It sounds like you are a very opinionated person. Just know that everyone has an opinion. That is why (when screening the comments here) I decided to let yours post in the comment section. Thanks so much…M/

    • I also would like to respond to Melissa. I got one have listened to my child for a long time before researching if other children or people experienced what he has tried to explain to me. So I must say to you I feel your story you have shared is very immature and I’ll tempered and I do not appreciate it. I sure many others felt the same when reading your rude antics. If you experienced things as a child and don’t now that is wonderful, but in my research some children grow to only experience more. So me as a parent was concerned and meant a lot to see my child is not alone in what has been happening now for right at 2yrs. I feel you may be close minded and that is OK but don’t judge others and there feelings, questions, and theories.

      • Thanks so much for your thoughts Jeanie. I will continue to keep this blog open to anyone who searches for information on what kids call sparkles! Blessings…M/

      • My message was towards the female the negatively responded to us that are concerned for ourselves or our children. It was not towards you at all. When I read her comment I thought it said her name was Melissa also Lol sorry if seemed to be towards you, it was not at all was directed to you by no means. So sorry for the confusion, no I love your blog it is helping me understand more for my son! The female that was so rude and negative just was so out of line making judgement on everyone, so I expressed to her my feelings of I felt of her negative expressions and anger.

      • Melissa I now he name Grant my cell must have showed just your name when I responded. I am so sorry for the confusion but my message was meant for Grant, lordy please forgive the confusion. Gone I feel horrible you thought it was you. I just thought the other person name was Melissa Lol so very sorry once again. Keep up your wonderful information to us and research!!

      • Jeanie~ No worries! I knew you were upset with his comments. No, I understood the confusion. I appreciate your comments and concerns too. I guess he just had to vent and we were the ones that got it! I am so glad you enjoy the blog, it gives me inspiration! All the best…M/

  72. Dear Grant…..You had to search this sight out, the same way I did. I was looking for answers as to what I had clearly seen ……. what were you looking for? Answers to dust particles? Or an argument? You were obviously looking up something you had no information about and you needed answers. I’m sorry you stumbled across this sight rather than finding out what a dust particle is. If you don’t understand what we’ve all seen, that’s OK. But don’t ridicule others. We know what we’ve seen. Just move on to another sight.

  73. So before reading this i have plenty of nights where I just lay in bed staring at my ceiling almost in a trance and I see what perceive as shadow movement which I have normally assumed was my eyes adjusting to the darkness or something so I find it very intriguing that I may actually be seeing something paranormal. However I have one burning question I can’t say I have seen sparkles per say as in a grouping of them but I have always seen one tiny sparkle of light or a twinkle that lasts half a second then disappears. Sometimes I see it head on sometimes it’s in the corner of my eye and my question is is this also paranormal? Or should I just see a doctor about my eyes? As far back as I can remember this has happened to me.

    • Hi Larissa~ It is always important to have your eyes checked periodically. But the way you describe the experiences, it sounds like the sparkles I talk about. And it is a spiritual experience. Such a blessing…M/

  74. I’m a Native American woman, I just turned 36 in Nov. Around August 2013 I figured out that I’m an Empath. Then about a week later I was sitting outside my house and saw the sparkles. To me they are a beautiful energy of some sort. I call them diamonds in the sky. When I first saw this I felt like I was having an episode and loosing it! I did have a panic attack and thought this is it I’m dying. I told my son I loved him and get ready to call 911. The energy was moving about everywhere-It is Alive! It made me realize that everything is connected and I am so happy to be able to see this anytime I look for it, which is daily! Anyway another week after this my hands started tingling regularly in the palms-It feels like a power or healing of some kind. This is all so new to me and I’ve only told two people-my son and my boyfriend. Any advice on this would be greatly appreciated.

    • Kiana~ How wonderful that you are experiencing these special energies! And thank you for sharing them with us here. The tingling would probably be healing energy coming through you and your hands. When ever you experience this, extend you hands in front of you, and ask that the healing go where it is needed. This is a universal type of healing. Blessings…M/

  75. sorry for not reading da whole article as its time for me to go to bed, But i started seeing sparkles when i was 14 or 13 they usually are golden and i saw white sparkles when it was raining one day. Usually i see the golden ones. They jus float in the air for few secs and vanishes.

  76. Hi Melissa.

    My name is Tyler and I am 18. I have been experiencing some things lately and I am confused. I do not know if I am blessed with something or if my brain is tricking me. My mother has been told by a ‘psychic’ that I am an indigo child. I was wondering if you could help me.

    Thank you,
    Tyler

    • Hi Tyler~ Thanks so connecting and looking us up! Since you really did not explain any of your experiences I cannot say for sure, but given your age, I would say you probably are an Indigo. Look around this blog and read the other articles similar to this one. It will tell you a lot. Also, you could get the book Does Your Child See Sparkles? Because it tells about some of the things that psychic kids experience. Find a psychic or medium that you feel comfortable with and ask to sit in some development classes. Feel it out and see if you want to continue. Just because you might be psychic, does not mean you have to development it. But you should know enough to be in control of it. Blessings…M/

  77. I saw sparkles constantly as a kid. when I was little, sparkly green little people would come play with me at night. I dont know who/what they were, but they were friends. I didn’t think about the supernatural or anything like that again until I almost died of postpartum preeclampsia at age 22. I knew I had a meeting with angels that night. After that, the sparkles came. I saw them mostly in bright situations like outside or in class at college, or on a computer screen. I am now 29, and this past year, the sparkles have become really intense. I did see an eye doctor who said the gel in my eyes were knocked lose during the preeclampsia causing a sensitivity to seeing particles in my own eyes. Made sense. But now, I am not sure. I have been reading a lot of new age stuff and angel books. the sparkles come daily, constantly, and sometimes it comes in balls of sparkles, about basketball sized. I convinced myself the “sparkle balls” are from some type of ocular migraines, but I am not sure. I don’t know if what is going on is divine or if I have something like MS..please help. Sometimes they freak me out, like when i see them with sunglasses on. I think they freak me out because seeing them while pregnant is an indication of preeclampsia.

    • Also, I have been told I am a “sync” based on experiences i communicated to a man who is some type of Shaman. These experiences, I can’t remember the ones in particular, but they come daily as well. I notice the more I acknowledge and give thanks to the signs and wisdom I receive, the more it happens. Right now I am so very stressed due to my husband losing his job. Yesterday, the only times I looked at the clock was 3;33, 4;44, and 5;55. There is no such thing as coincidence right? I think that was my angels ways of telling me they are here, it is going to be OK. I’ve also heard things that I am certain were from my Grandmother who recently passed. She’s communicated to me on little things, like what to wear, how to cook something, and how to hang some home made ornaments made by her. I think the stress i have been going through is making my body hurt, tired, and see sparkles even more (with sun glasses on). Usually the sun glasses stops them, but not yesterday. I didn’t like seeing them with the sunglasses on so I asked it to stop and surrounded myself with a pink light, it stopped.
      Thank you so much for any words of advice, comments, etc. I really appreciate your response.

      • Hi Shona~ Thanks so much for sharing this information. There are many people who feel that lights, or sparkles is a medical condition. I am sure there are many that are. This is certainly a possibility. However, with the other experiences you have, I must think that you are having spiritual experiences. (Of course, it could be a combination of both). But the fact that you asked the sparkles to stop, and they did, helps in realizing that you have control of it. So, there is some kind of spiritual intervention here. You might try asking for more concrete proof that the sparkles are real. Then wait for confirmation. I have never heard of “sync” before, so cannot comment on that. But I might know the concept by another name. Blessings to you…M/

  78. Hi Melisa,
    Recently i learned pranic healing after that i started observing thing around me. One day I say at the raising sun…it was not very bright. I observed a very huge band of energy coming down to earth. I had closed my eyes after watching the energy band from sun. I saw OM symbol for very log time for say around 15mins.
    After 3-4 days later I observed the sun on same time.
    Again i saw the same type of energy band coming down to earth. But along with that i saw very huge bodies with different shapes coming down to earth.
    I saw very huge black snake coming down to earth. Later I saw huge bodies like ghost are coming down to earth from sun rays. Actually those bodies were in dark violet color. They were coming out from sun.
    Later i observe that same kind of ghost shape(full body from head to feet cover with dark violet color) coming down to earth.
    So i closed my eyes but this time i didn’t see any OM symbol but i saw red color bright circle.

    Can you please guide what exactly it means.

    Thanks,
    Swamini

    • Hi Swamini~ What a beautiful picture that must be! I feel you are blessed with second sight. Meaning that you are able to see things that are not third dimensional — things that really do not have form or substance, that we are used to seeing. When you see these things, ask your Higher Self, or Spirit Guides to give you insight and understanding as to their meaning. You will receive answers. Bless you…M/

  79. Hi
    My grandfather passed away 6 days back. I often cried during the period and all of today afternoon I actually felt a heavy sensation on myself. I went to the washroom for a cry and was facing the mirror. I turned to my side and suddenly I could see a light smoke around me and something that I now identified as ‘sparkles’ after reading the articles here. It lasted for a good 15-20seconds. I called out to my grandfather and told him that I loved him. The pain I have been carrying all these days lifted a bit and I have been finding the weight I have been carrying around also reduce somewhat.
    A lot of things were also left unsaid by my parents and according to our customs the soul departs after 12 days. Is there someway I can contact him again through these sparkles and give him my parents message

    • Hello Rittu~ I am so sorry to hear of your grandfather’s passing. These times are very difficult to understand and adjust to. But you have been blessed with his presence by the way you explain the smoky energy and sparkles. Even though the soul departs from the earthly realm, the spirit of your grandfather still exists, and can continue to connect with you through your thoughts and feelings. Just talk to him (in your mind, or out loud). He will hear you. He is very lucky to have you as a grandchild. Blessings…M/

      • Hi melissa
        I told my mum about my experience. And she told me that since round about the same time, she has felt the grief and weight lift off her heart as well

        I want to speak to him again. Can u pls help me

  80. I have seen sparkles of light which were red and blue and they weren’t inside my eyes they would just appear on the walls and on my flag and over my bed when I would be laying down in the dark or sometimes while im watching a movie but they never startled me or never made me feel afraid I’d just watch them pop up and disapper it started to happen everyday to the point where I knew what spots to look as I was laying in bed to look at to see them appear again could some on help or just define what these lights are what they want and the meaning of the colors?

    • Thanks so much for stopping by! Take a look around the blog, and read all the comments too. You will quickly see that these sparkles are a spirit led configuration of energies. Those in the spirit world just want us to know they are well! And love being around. Blessings…M/

  81. My son recently went on his “spiritual vacation to come back anew” after being ill. Since his crossing over journey I have been seeing sparkles every time I think about him or talk out loud to him – at first I thought I was having a vision issue too but it became apparent that it was him. I had to google to see if anyone else was having this experience and have gratefully found you.

  82. Hello! My name is Jaime. I’m so glad I found this site. I used to see this stuff when I was little, it moved all over my room and I was too scared to move and if i had to go to the bathroom oh well I would just go in my bed it wasnt gonna get me haha..but after the years i just began to ignore it. But in the past 4yrs (im 29 now) i spend a lot of time outside and i just stare into the sky and i can see the sparkles all over very bright and clear as i began to get used to it and focus. It kind of looks like a swarm of insects or something alive because they seem to not run into each other. Im just glad i can finally understand what it is. Thank you!

  83. My mother n law died in August of 2011. At the age of 15, I moved in with my then boyfriend-so in in many ways, she was like a surrogate mother to me. She was a tough as nails but tender hearted nurse, and I followed in her footsteps, and I am now a hospice nurse. One of her wishes while she was alive, was for me and my children to be baptized in her church. Sadly, she died before I decided if I wanted to do this. I decided to join her church because I liked the pastor and appreciated the connection he gave us to her memory. We have been been baptized there, and actually a church that was shrinking in numbers is now growing. I know she would be so pleased. She always loved the pastor’s sermons and this is the pertinent part. While he is speaking, I will often see a fine mist over the top of the church-it comes and goes but is definately there-I will blink and still it remains. I have never seen the mist except during his sermons. I can’t help but think she is somehow present. This would seem to fit her style-not overstaying her welcome, lol. It is so cool. It makes me feel good about many things, because I always feel I could have spent more time with her when she was at the end of her life-but I know we kept her out of the nursing home and that was her biggest fear.

  84. I’m 16 and today in sociology I was watching my teacher in a very relaxed manner and realized I saw a white blue outline around her. It was white around her head and got blue around her shoulder/arm/hands. What’s it mean?

    • You are seeing your teacher’s aura (energy field around the body). Colors mean different things to different people. But generally the white color is pure and compassionate. The blue is for communication and creativity. Quite a gift you have!

  85. I am soo happy to have come across this board. Long story short, I believe my ex boyfriend (who passed 10 yrs ago, but his energy is around me and I have experienced many amazing, spiritual things) came to me one night or my angel? (i was asleep, but felt the energy and woke up) and presented in front of me were 3 triangles (dark silver metal). I kinda looked at it confused (at first), but then the triangles started turning and formed a pinwheel, then the pinwheel blew my hair and blew out orange/gold sparkles which showered me from head/to. I have been trying to find out what this all meant (this happened in August 2012) Meaning, anyone?? Changes; Protection; New beginnings?? I know it meant something. ..This past summer I lost my Mom and then my job weeks later. Overall, I am amazingly luck. I never found that kinda of love that I had w/him and know that I will find love again, at some point. I feel like BIG changes are coming and the sparkles could be some type of attraction for BIG changes, or protection, I’m guessing. I would appreciate any comments. Thank you!!

  86. Thank you for posting this.
    When I was young I saw these “sparkles” all the time at night I used to watch, what I then thought of as colorful T.V. static. I would see them best at night when I lay in bed as described above,by others, but also when I would look at a solid color, like the clear blue sky. I think I asked my mom about this, but she sorta shut me down as I was a story teller when I was young….haha.

    I never felt any sort of presence at all I guess I just thought the sparkles were normal, when I was a teenager I started to believe it was some sort of mind trick because they would move when I moved my eyes. So I started to ignore it :(

    Recently some strange things have been going on with me, I will think of something and it will happen…. not like a glass is going to drop and it does. But like some deeper stuff, I recently stopped drinking, as I was a functional alcoholic for 15 or so years, so I guess I am having clarity or something I don’t know. Anyway, these strange things that are going on, are quite obvious to me but to others they would seem wacky, so I wont go into detail. Believe me I tried to talk to my husband about it and he looked at me like I’m a loon…ha

    But last night I stayed up reading and when I when I finally went to and bed turned out the lights. The sparkles were back but only faintly, at that point I said ” I missed you, what are you?” and that is why I did a google search on this and found this blog.

  87. I have seen these for the longest and have always thought people Would think I was crazy if I told them about it. Tonight and last night I saw one in the same spot in room that a lamp was on. Tonight I was able to look directly at it as it faded out. I have seen them different places but they usually are always above somewhere.

  88. To Everyone: Comforting to finally to be able to discuss the blessing we have been able to see. I have experienced more & more in the last few years – why? I don’t know. I’ve always been intuitive/sensitive, but nothing like this. I feel blessed, lucky, protected (it goes on & on). I remember one person I told (never again) said I was probably halluncinating. If I’m hallucinating, then why can’t I hallucinate all the time? Last year was tough (losing Mom & job), but I know I am protected and a few ‘angels’ are watching overme. IMO I think alot of people do have guardian angels/spirit guides, etc., but they don’t get to see them – I don’t know why. I can only speak for myself & say I always have always and will continue to pay it forward, I always think of others & (too) thoughtful in general – do these have anything to do w/it? Again, I don’t now – I just say thank you and feel very comforted knowing everything will be ok! I’m curious what Melissa has to say about what I experienced (posted above) we will see.

    • Bo~~ Bless you for commenting on this blog. I enjoy everyone’s experiences. I also believe that others are still searching and trying to figure out what is happening. So to see so many people that have witnessed this gift is great confirmation for them. I must say, that your love, compassion and openness to Spirit is a major reason that you are able to experience the Sparkles. I like to say it is similar to Living in the Innocence of a Child. Children do not judge but accept people as they are. This is a wonderful way to live your life. Thanks Bo…M/

  89. Melissa: My pleasure…you do feel like (as the G.B pointed out) a ‘loon’ …but, I know that they are spiritual gifts. I just can’t always figure out the meanings all the time (except it’s all good). As I was sprinkled, I knew it did something to me or for me, ex: protecting me (against what, everything?) I am very lucky is so many ways, it’s amazing, sometimes it’s like I have a genie…it has happened more times than I can counter and everyone who knows me agrees (I don’t even manifest things..it’s strange, but so cool) I have always been open to these things, but only experience d2-3 things in my whole life and over the last 10 years it’s alot. I started meditating, to see if that brings it out more…sometimes things don’t happen for a long time…there isn’t any rhyme or reason to it. I am never scared, I LOVE it! So, I guess we’re all blessed (I feel pretty special, hope you all do) Melissa, any comments on what I experienced…Pinwheel in addition to the sparkles, gold/orange meaning? I may never understand what they are doing, I just have to trust! Thanks for your reply – I loved it.

    • Hi Bo~ I have been pondering your pinwheel experience for some time now. This is what I understand: It seems, that even though you woke up from your sleep, you were still in a twilight-type of state, still accessing other dimensions. This is just like you do while dreaming. You were awake enough that your conscious mind was able to realize what was going on. Kind of “here and there” at the same time! Cool. But as far as the meaning of the triangles/pinwheel and sparkles blowing your hair, I am afraid I have not been given any explanation. I feel that it is for you to ask your own spirit guides and angels to give you the understanding of this experience — speciaficallt for you. Blessings to you Bo! …M/

      • Hi Melissa, Thank you so much for replying…I wasn’t sure if you would, but glad you did :) I agree w/everything you said…I was still asleep, but it’s like my soul woke up…that’s the best way I can describe it (very hard to explain)…I will now tell you, after my own research, the triangles represented the Holy Trinity…one triangle is amazing, I had three! I wanted to see what your opinion was before I shared about the Holy Trinity. I have asked my angels/ex boyfriend to help me understand (I’m very curious by nature) The best I can come up w/is the same as I said before – I have been blessed & protected, maybe a magnet for upcoming attracrions (not sure, anything is possible). Spirtiual gifts (as I call them started happening after he passed, that is why I am convinced it’s my ex-boyfriend. I will never understand ‘everything’ but that’s ok. I really feel like the luckiest person in the world…I think I am on the right track w/the Holy Trinity speculation…blowing of the hair was invigorating & fun…Last question for you, any comments on the meaning of the gold/orange. I couldn’t find much on these colors, myself. Again, thank you, I really appreciate your input – you just can’t talk to many people about this ‘stuff”

      • Bo~ I truly believe that symbology of colors is very personal: what it really means to you. but in general, the Gold is especially significant. Gold, as I see it is closest to heavenly realms as possible. Again, I think it is angelic in nature. So you are truly being ‘sprinkled’ with lots of Love from Heaven! But more than that, I feel like they are preparing you for special work to be done with assistance from Spirit Beings. Much will be done in the Dreamtime. If I were you, I’d keep a journal at bedside to record any dreams. You should be amazed.

      • Melissa: That was beautiful…Thank you so much! I actually do keep a journal, I have only experienced the Spriritual Sprinkles once (Aug 2012) but, I have experienced a cazillion things other than Sprinkkles…I can’t post e’thing, I would hog up the whole blog LOL. I really do feel lucky. As I mentioned before, the following Summer after experiencing the Sprinkles, I had 2 major losses (Mom/Job). I have had a few visits from my Mom (that’s another story)…I haven’t found a job yet (6 mos) but, I know I will (people will say ‘how can you be so confident w/all the people out of work for so long) I wish I could tell them about the Sprinkles, amognst other things, but I just keep it to myself and say “I’m lucky, it wil work out, I have a few Angels around me ;)” I have always been a natural believe in the Power of Positive Thinking – it works for me! Everyone should realize (for example) no matter how many people are having a hard time finding a job & it’s been a while #1 you don’t know their thought process, they could be saying ‘I’ll never find a job” #2 Every one was born with an individual blueprint…My thought process is very different from most, with a strong spiritual bent! Thank you, again, I appreciate you taking the time…Who knows, maybe I in the future I will write about one of my many other experiences, but the only thing is they are not Sprinkled related and I feel like this blog is meant just for that topic….Blessings!

        PS: I have thought on the same idean as what you wrote about “Preparing me for special work w/Spiritual Assistance”…Interesting!

      • Thanks, Bo~~ I have some news about an open discussion board I will open up in a week or so. I’ll post the link here, when it is ready. That would be perfect for your experiences, and hopefully some interaction with others, too.

  90. Hey i never ever really thought about this but after my daughter acting weird at nights i thought id stick a cam in her room as ive had a few weird things happen to me when i was a boy. Might i add she is 6. I only recorded for 15 minutes but for about 12 minutes of the video that was in complete darkness i could see bright white and orangey twinkles of light above her, mainly around her head with some venturing out a bit further (maybe a foot or so).They would flicker between the two colours and also swirl about. Would you consider this to be the same?

    • It definitely sounds like the same thing! I have never heard of it showing up like this — but, why not? There are spirit orbs that show up in photos. I guess this is a similar situation. What a blessing…M/

  91. I see these often with eyes open. Both during the day and at night. It started heavily after some strong paranormal experiences I had as a teen. I was an “atheist” when I began seeing them. Of course, I know understand there are Universes beyond my perception. I’ve seen sparkles swirling, which I read is the interaction btwn angels and our denser dimension. As well as just random sparkles. Some even scared me till I breathed into my heart. It is now my understanding that the fear comes from my mind’s difficulty in accepting beings that function within other paradigms. Though the one Universal Force and desire has always been Love.

  92. I have had so many experiences threw the years and have been told I’m an indigos child but it wasn’t until tonight I decided to look something up I’ve never seen anyone else recreate. I had been summonsd by a shelf of pendulums to start infact I didn’t even know what they were but wouldn’t stop until I picked the one up that wanted me to buy it. I practiced and practiced until eventually I started seeing green and purple sparks starting from the base of the amethyst rising to the top of the chain where my fingurs rested. I for a long time thought I was jus seeming these until I began to open up and showed my gf what had been calling to me louder and louder until I couldn’t ignore it anymore and she could see the green and purple sparks as well. Infact I hadn’t mentioned what I had been seeing but wanted to ask some questions and show her how I was using my instrument (pendulum ) she was so amazed was so excited when she saw what I was seeing I was blown away she could see it. I still don’t know much but I am striving to learn and understand the many different gifts given to me. I was wondering what ur take is on this can u show someone else energy was it a fluke I haven’t seen it since my pendulum was needed in a different place. Kinda weird I can’t tell u how I know but someone else needed it so it resides in a different deminsion for now . It feels like we will be deprecated for many years until I absolutely need it again. For now I use my kyanite stone as my pendulum on a cloth ribbon as my necklace. It works but I feel like I must know more any advice?

    • Hi Jude~ I just found your comment, sorry if it took a few days. It must have been hiding!

      Anyway, I am happy you are following your impressions as they come to you. I also am impressed that your girlfriend could see the energy too. I think that your vibrations helped her to see it. Seems like you raise people up. Nice.

      Just read everything you can get your hands on about the areas you want to work with. Be sure to stay in control and feel comfortable with whatever you decide to do. Ask questions of your spirit guides and for confirmation.

      You should be fine! Blessings, M/

  93. Melissa: I found a link to an explanation of Angel Colors & Meaning. It’s really, really good and my colors fit perfectly (Gold/Orange) to what’s going on in my life. Is it ok to paste the link here?

  94. Jude, I read your experience, that’s amazing! Maybe you can look at the link I just posted for meaning of Angel Colors…It helped me understand, maybe it will be useful to you in some way.

  95. Melissa’s, I was laying in bed one night and I awoke to these green sparkle thing hoovering around me. It scared me to death. The next night my daugher (she was about 3 at that time) was sleeping with and I heard her say you get away from my mommy. When I asked her about it she said that she was talking tonthrbgreen sparkly things. It really freaked me out! Any thoughts on what it could be?

    • Dawn. thanks for your comment and question. I feel like your ‘visitors’ are special spiritual entities watching over you. If you are scared of them, tell them to leave in a polite but firm manner. Please read more of the articles in my blog here about sparkles and psychic kids, etc. I think it will answer you questions.

  96. PLEASE PLEASE READ ALL THE WAY THROUGH. help me.I am a 19 year old male.I was a heavy ganja smoker before I had a terrible experience. One night I was laying in bed after smoking alot, then out of no where a red orb about the size of a pea appeared about 2 feet above my feet.Then another, and anther. Until they formed a kind of robust shape made up out of the orbs.It was weird because they made a kind of humming sound.To continue. .Then after about 30 seconds, they would disperse as if I were zooming out and then there were thousands, upon thousands of miniature red translucent sparkles, I could feel this extremely ominous presence in my room.Then they all disappeared. After they disappeared I looked around my room with this unimaginable threatening, dark, insidious presence in my room.Then a throbbing red orb the size of a tennis ball appeared on my last look around my room right in front of my door about 4 feet above the ground.I could literally see into this thing.It was like a red black hole.I got so scared that a hid under the sheets.After I cooled down and got the courage to come out of hiding it repeated, but even worse and more vivid, as if the scenario was trying to finish.The final orb the second time was about 3 times the size.The next time I smoked it was similar but it was thousands of sparkle clouds that started translucent red, then would go just plain white light color, also on occasion I wold see these floating red orbs that would very in size according to my focus and high level, covering everything!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I COULD SCOOP THEM UP IN MY PALM AND THEY WOULD JUST FLOAT THERE!!!!! While there were the random floating orbs there also where ones making designs and lines of them hovering across my body and my sheets and even when I would be outside.Last but not leasr.I see these clouds of white sparkles when I’m not high, and when I reach up to touch them my hand tingles like an electric shock.I am scared please give me advice.

    • Hello Elon~ I have to admit that I do not know what ganja is, but I imagine it to be similar to marijuana here in USA. If smoking this brings the experiences to you, then my first and emphatic advice is to stop smoking it. What is happening is that the ganja opens you up in a lower vibration of spiritual awareness. You are not protected and have not prepared yourself for this mind-opening experience. Since you are only 19 years old, I must ask you to consult with an adult that you respect and ask their opinion of this. They will guide you appropriately. Blessings…M/

  97. I have constant snow vision also see sparkles of purple and white lights. I see many strange phenomenon in my vision path lots of blanks spaces and distortion of space with lights. I see the energy in everything I look at. I see how light shapes. I am pretty used to this and am comfortable with it. I also see aura. This is new. It seems the more I consentrate and except the more advanced I am becoming.pretty interedting stuff. Funny I went to the eye doctor told her my world was a fuzzy screan and I saw purple flashes that differd in sparks and long bursting streaks. My vision tested beyond perfect.

  98. Hi Melissa,
    I have just in recent weeks have started to see sparkles. I see them during the day, flickering and dancing in my vision. For about a year now I have also been seeing gridlines when I wake up in the night. They are on the ceiling and walls, surrounding me. They vary in size, but are always bright white. Any idea what this is about? Thanks for your insight.

    • Hi Rachel! Thanks for the comment to this article. I understand the gridlines, and have seen movies about them being seen etherically, but have never known anyone who sees them. How cool! I imagine you are looking into other dimensions. And you are being assisted with a scientific spirit-doctor teacher (a highly evolved spirit guide). You might start seeing other things too, like geometric symbols. Start meditating and ask your guide to give you some understanding about it. Please share anything you receive in this blog. Thanks…M/

      • Thanks for you insight. I will take time to ask more questions the next time I am meditating. You mentioned movies about them being seen etherically. Do you mind passing along the titles? I have been searching for information since I began seeing them, and I have not been able to find anything! Thanks again!

  99. We moved 3 weeks ago and my daughter told me she keeps seeing small white lights in her room. She’s 10. weird thing Is I also have seen them around the house but didn’t say anything due to not wanting to scare anyone. When she told me I was more convinced that I obviously wasn’t imagining it. I don’t feel scared by them. I also see which looks like someone / something stood in the room but when I go to look it’s nothing. I keep putting this down to it being a new home and getting use to the different shadows the house forms when dark and obviously car lights driving past creating light coming through the curtains etc and myself just not being use to it. But since My daughter had seen theses little lights I’m now convinced theres more to it. just to add I’m not Not feeling scared or frightened by it.

  100. Hey there,

    I have been seeing these sparkles for approximately 6 years now. They are really really comforting actually, and happen when I least expect it. I’d best describe it as a dust particle but larger, and really beautiful and like nothing I’ve seen before (except I have seen it …)

    I have a strong feeling as to who it is (as it started happening when they passed) and I’m really comforted that they are there for me :)

    It used to occur a lot in the year after they passed and it slowed down. Often occurring when I least expect it to. But recently I’ve seen it a few times (I’m going through an emotional time atm). When is saw my ‘little sparkle’ today I made sure I said Thank-you for being there for me :)

    Thankyou for this post it really cleared up a few questions I had about what’s been happening. It’s also great to know that other people see it too. I don’t feel so weird now. (Even though it’s fine to be weird :))

    • Bethany~ This is kind of an open question. I have more questions for you than answers right now… Does this bother you? or are you alright with it? Best thing right now is for you to keep spirit energy protection around you — ask your guides to prepare a protective barrier around you so that the spirit does not invade your energy field. That will give you time to decide if you want to pursue this. Look for a metaphysical bookstore in your area with classes and lectures on the topic. Check it out. Let me know what happens!

  101. Thank you so much Melissa for helping children and their parents with this topic! I am very grateful to have found your website. I am open to learning and understanding more about the spirit world and have always been very interested in it.
    This is why I want didn’t want to just dismiss what my 5,5 yr old told me yesterday. Two nights ago she was up for a little while whispering with her sister, around 03:30. When I came into the room she asked me what was behind me. I told her “the door” and she said “so you can’t see it. Little sister can’t see it either”. I asked her what she saw to make sure it wasn’t anything frightening her but she described it as non-threatening so I laid down with the two of them and we soon fell back to sleep. She told me then (and told me again when I asked her yesterday afternoon) she sees shapes. Only when she opens her eyes and only in that very room. A square with other shapes who are trying to find their way into it. The first and last time she saw it was the first night she slept in her sisters bedroom 6 months ago. She didn’t tell little sister because she didn’t think little sister would see them (which was confirmed last night when she said she thought big sister just saw the rooms’ decorations). My 5,5 yr old hadn’t seen the (pretty colored) shapes between that first night in September and two nights ago. She said there were also fish that she was telling a story to in her head but they were closer by her bed. The shapes swirled through the air and had positive colors (pink, orange, yellow, and purple). She’s a sweet 5 year old and may not be “special” in a spiritual way, but if she is, I want to make sure she knows she’s understood and is not a freak. I want her to have positive guidance so she doesn’t become afraid. I hope you understand this comes from a loving-mama heart. My question is, how do I help her feel comfortable so she’ll continue to share what she experiences? Also, last night she was distressed going to bed as she knew I had an appointment and I don’t leave her side often (we’re homeschooling). She said the shapes were back and I told her she could tell them she didn’t want to “play” or see them right then. Then she started crying and saying that didn’t work. It was so sad to see her frightened. I guess this ties into my one question of how can I help her? I’ve written down the prayer you mentioned in a comment earlier. The positive prayer to affirm she’s protected by God. Is there anything else I can do for her? Do you know of any picture books we can read together on the subject? Thank you in advance so much for easing our worried minds and helping us to help these little souls feel comfortable with seeing both “worlds”. I have Reiki I and II and I also wonder if sitting in the room at night after the girls have gone to sleep and sending out Reiki can help any with the energy, at least keeping it positive. Much love, Anneke

    • Anneke~ Thanks so much for searching this topic and finding my blog. Your story is so very similar to many other parents’ (as you might find reading other articles and comments here). Assure your daughter(s) that you totally believe that she is seeing the shapes, even though you might not be able to see them. Instead of saying that she is special, say that she is able to see things in a special way. Many other people are not aware of that way of seeing. (I truly believe that everyone can see these things, and that they exist in layers of existence. But so many people have forgotten how to see that way.) Enlist the help of your daughter’s Guardian Angel. The main purpose of this angel is to “guard” her. Each person has been appointed such an angel by God (Divine Source). But you must ask your angels to do things. So have her create a special gratitude-request for her angel. There are times she may want to see the shapes. Other times when she does not. She may want to completely stop seeing them all together. But let her decide what that is. //// Also I know you and your family will appreciate my book, Does Your Child See Sparkles? There is a link to it on this blog. (ebook or softcover). But I do not know of a picture book for children yet. I am looking for one. I will post about it when I find some. Blessings to you and your sweet family…M/

      • Thank you for the quick and personal reply, Melissa. I’ll look into getting your book as well as reading up on how to help her find her guardian angel. With love, Anneke

  103. I want to start by thanking you for this brilliant blog! It is very difficult to get credible information on these sorts of topics. I have seen ‘sparkles’ as long as I can remember (I’m 42 years now) and I love the fact more and more parents are open to listening to their children regarding these matters. Both of my boys have quite potent psychic abilities, but I have never even thought to ask them about the sparkles, which I will have to do now! :-) There is one thing I’m a wee bit concerned about though, while I do agree some of the time the sparkles may be energy of a loved one, I would like to caution everybody against forming unhealthy attachments to the energy of a loved one. Not only do we earthly beings need to let go in order to move on, but we need to recognise the spirits of our loved one’s need to move on as well, and if we hold their energy in our plane of existence, those same energies can be negatively affected by our attachment. Please, please accept the fact that our loved ones will often pay a visit or 2 to lend us comfort in their continued existence at a time when we probably most need that comforting–accept that for what it is, express your love, say what you need to and let them pass on, even telling them you wish for them to pass on and that you (survivor) will be OK.

    Again, thank you so much for this blog!!!

    Cheers!

    • Thanks so much Mike for your insight. You are right, attachment is not healthy for either party. And although the loved one comes to greet and send love, they have their own work to do in spirit. By letting go, you will be surprised as to how often you see the sparkle energies. Also, very often, the sparkles are brought about by guardian angels and spirit guides, hoping you will take notice. There is so much to cover on this topic! Mike, I hope you are able to read some of the other articles on Sparkles. Blessings…M/

  104. I’m in my late 30′s now and have always seen for as long as I can remember flecks of light moving around like you might find cultures moving under a microscope. They are almost bubble like (colourful like bubbles too), different shapes, tiny, interacting with one another, bouncing of one another, some active, some floating quite slowly. (Not dust particles) I thought it was normal and have never ever thought to mention to anyone. On a night I see active red and green tiny electric like zaps of energy, very rapid almost like fork lightening (but not as severe) entwined with one another – all very bizarre. I then sometimes get a black spot that shifts from eye to eye. I then see snow flakes (like on a tv screen – just black & white fuzz) totally came across this page by accident searching for something completely different about light & was drawn to it to read. I’m now totally baffled. I always thought what I was seeing was normal & everyone saw it & that it must have something to do with natural liquid or dust particles in my eyes? Now I’m confused? Can you advise? Thank you x

    Ps:just remembered: every time I see the day time ones I always think to myself that that’s how I’d imagine atoms & molecules etc to work if we could see them with the naked eye. I enjoy their beauty for a while then get distracted and go about my business again x

    • Thanks Mel~ The thing is: it IS normal, but not everyone can see them. Only because we have forgotten how — or ignore it to be more third dimensional. I am happy your stopped by, read the article, and shared your experiences…M/

  105. I just happened upon this page as I was searching for an explanation for what my oldest daughter (6 years old) just described to me. She was awake in the night and as I was talking to her she said that there were always all these balls floating around (even under her covers) in the night and that they landed on her and it hurt! :/ She said they land on her neck and legs sometimes and she could feel it. But that they were floating all around (even as I was talking to her). I told her I was sorry I couldn’t see them! And she said she knew I wouldn’t understand, which broke my heart. I asked her about them and she said they were tiny and white, gray or maybe clear. She didn’t seem overly worried/scared of them (and she can be an anxious child in many ways). I want to help her… I don’t know if she is experiencing a spiritual thing or physical issue??? I’m scared for her, though, because I don’t understand at all what is going on.

    • Emilie~ I am glad you searched this. I feel like her experiences are spiritual. But if you have any concerns, always have her checked by a medical professional. The part that she says it hurts when they land on her skin baffles me. If feel like this might be related to subconscious memories of “scary” or “ghost” movies that she might have seen. They have a way of strongly shaping our young minds. Probably positive reinforcement from you will help her. Also, she has the power to tell them to leave her alone. You can also help her form a positive statement to help with that. Be sure to look at some of the other articles I have on Kids that See Sparkles, or my book, Does Your Child See Sparkles. You’ll find some great info there…M/

  106. Thank you for responding, Melissa. She was awake from about 2am until she got up this morning. We ended up turning the light on for her because she said she didn’t see them then. But she never really went back to sleep. When she first told me about them, she didn’t seem to worried… but then after a while she did because she said they were forming circles and coming at her and it was scaring her. :( She said they’d never done that before (seems strange that the first time we talk about them, they start doing something new). She said there’s a LOT of them… like more than she can count. Does that sound “normal” for sparkles? How can she tell them to go away? I’ll also be checking out your other articles. I just feel so bad that she’s been, apparently, dealing with this for quite a while and I never know. She said she just tries to ignore it when they land on her even though it hurts.

    • Here is an excerpt from my book: “Feeling Empowered vs. Having Fear ~~
      Energy is simply energy. Energy is always energy. Energy can take the form of many different things: clouds, houses, people, Jell-O, even thought-forms. It also can be the way those in the spirit world show themselves: such as with Sparkles.
      Here is an example of how we sometimes view energy: If someone comes into your house, and you feel strange and uneasy around them, then you usually will say, “There’s something wrong with that person,” or “I get a bad feeling around him.” It depends on how we feel about the person as to whether we think it is good or bad. This is only a judgment. It is not how the energy is. It could be that the vibration of that person is just different from yours, and that is why you feel something. But it does not always mean that the person is bad. ///
      The same thing can be said about other things in life, such as Sparkles. The reason I say that is because our younger children have a difficult time relating what they see or feel to us. Their experience is still very limited to find references for this situation. So, if they have seen a scary movie, or ghost story, then they know the feeling of fear. It is a quickening, or tense feeling. ///
      Perhaps, the Sparkles are connected to spirits or angels. But if there is no reference to that, then “ghost” might be what they say and believe. So, something that originally did not present itself as negative becomes scary. Of course, this might not be the case for everyone. But I see this in many situations. ///
      Now I want to talk about being empowered in these strange situations. In the physical world, we teach our children to be safe, and how they can protect themselves. For example: Your child might be at school playing on the playground with other kids. A man comes up and says scary things to the child. You have taught your child ahead of time to stay away from them, and to say “Go away, stay away from me.” ///
      The same is true when dealing with spirit energies of any kind. They may be positive spirits. But they seem scary to your child. Or the Sparkles might expand, and show themselves all the time. It might get out of hand, and frustrating. ///
      Sometimes, children remember the scary movies and relate what they see to something negative. Then their imagination can create more of it. It is real to them. (I have to say here, that once in a great while, there can be a real negative energy. But that is very unusual. The more common thing is that the sparkles, spirits, or situation, is confusing or misunderstood. And the child doesn’t really know how to react to it or describe it.)
      Talk to your child about being powerful, just like the scenario about the playground. Each person is “in charge” of what goes on around them. You have a say-so, whether you want to be around good energy or bad energy. Your child needs to know that they are empowered to be in charge of that. Even if they are good Sparkles, but your child is scared of it, or just doesn’t want it around them anymore, they have the power to do something about it. ///
      It is important to be nice and stay calm. Your child can say something like, “I don’t want to see you Sparkles at night anymore. Go away now. Leave me alone.” They should say it very firmly, but in a nice way. If the child is too small, then the parent can help. But remember not to be aggressive or angry about it. ///
      Through conversations with others, I have found that children sometimes out-grow seeing Sparkles. At least, they become less intense. I think it has to do with being involved with the worldly things of life. Other children embark on a wonderful connection and relationship with the Sparkles. This would be similar to conversations with angels or spirit guides, which I consider normal.” ~~~ Your daughter probably never thought about it being real, until you started talking to her about it. Now, it has become a real thing, and probably makes it scarier. So keep communication open with her. Let her know you h her and it will work out alright…M/

  107. Thank you for the information. I will try having her tell them to go away (nicely). But if that doesn’t help then I’m not sure what to do. I will try to be positive with her. I just don’t know anything about this or dealt with it myself… so it’s hard. She is apparently scared of them (probably because they are hurting her). But when the light comes on, they go away… so she may be sleeping with her light on for a while. Thank you again for your help and suggestions!

  108. I have one more question… in reading on-line… I see what are called orbs are usually bigger and fewer… but what my daughter describes are LOTS (more than she can count) tiny little balls. Is that what the sparkles look like?? Why so many of them floating around?

  109. I really don’t know anything about it?? I’ve never seen anything like that. My daughter is the one who is seeing them… lots and lots of little floating balls.

  110. i would love to see the pics, Kendal…i’ve encountered alot, but no orbs. I was showered w/gold & orange glitter once (blessing)

  111. Just wanted to say its very comforting to see other people seeing what I call firefly sparkles I just started to see them 2013/14 I had third eye awakening 2-2012. Since then many changes have occurred hence sparkles. I kept seeing sparkles and had my eyes checked they were fine. Along with hearing my name being called and a few pokes/touches from something I became alerted to what was going on?? I decided to take a picture after I seen the sparkle show itself then go through my computer screen like a piece of snow and out the other side I was puzzled?? I snapped a picture guess what it is a solid beautiful sphere about 4-6 inches diameter with rainbows around the edges I have to say not an ordinary clear bubble it was quite beautiful, it doesn’t seem to be bothering me by poking or touching after i said touching freaks me out no touching please..but it still hangs out here I like to think its a relative watching over me or a spirit guide/angel. Much Love

  112. What dose it mean to see the sparkles I’ve been seeing them since about 2010 I think not sure but its strange now when I’m in school I almost always see it they are black and white and usually after I see them maybe dayse weeks hours its always different but sometime after well something good or bad happens to me or someone close to me what dose it mean if you even know

    • Hi Sabina~ Usually, seeing the sparkles is simply loved ones in spirit or angelic forces that are around you letting you know they are around you. They are able to manipulate the energies (or ether) to show you these sparkles. I do not believe that they announce any event (good or bad). These things happen to all of us, so it is difficult to pin point seer-visions concerning this. As I say, good things and bad things always happen. these are not unusual. Thanks so much for your interest. Please look around the blog for more articles about sparkles, or by the book Does Your Child See Sparkles because it answers a lot of your questions. Blessings…M/

  113. My opinion is that what I’m seeing is light/electricity/radiation on a different spectrum than what is normally acknowledged that a human can see. That alone shouldn’t cause alarm, because I realize that those things are there whether I can see them or not. Space is big, human understanding pails in comparison. Gotta roll with it. A person would do well to try to find out how this can be useful instead of being afraid. But of course that seems to be what this site is about.

    I’ve seen the bright sparkling white lights for as long as I can remember. They’re more intense the less light sources there are around me, actually. Even more so intense when I close my eyes. I usually just tune it out. It look like static, or something like billions of stars blinking lightning fast, like a zoomed out view of the universe. It’s pretty neat, actually.

    My vision is better than 20/20, so even though they do at times interfere with my distinguishing of the details of objects, it seems from my experience that in general I’m still able to distinguish details and subtle variations in my surroundings better than most of my companions. (For example, being able to tell how many individual people-shapes are approaching from long range while to others it may just look like a blob only signifying more than one.) I can also see in the dark very well. Not as well as cats it would seem though, unfortunately.

    My first conscious memory of them was when I was about 8 or 9 due to some other interesting visual phenomenon that happened which kind of turned the rolling camera in my conscious memory on full alert. I assume that I saw them before that, but it probably didn’t strike me as anything out of the ordinary.

    I’ve seen more distinguished shapes of all kinds, from floating colors to humanoid-ish ranging from frightening to awe-some. That type of perception happens a lot more often if I were to concentrate on such matters. I do not think that taking the visuals literally is always the best policy, as I’ve noticed my own inner state affects what I see.

    There have been times when I was in a particularly harmonious mood, where it appeared that my mental frequency was creating wave-forms around me and the lights I saw were conforming to them. This in general appeared as circular with complex geometrical shapes shifting and spiraling inside the circle. Look up the wave-forms of sound and you’ll pretty much see what I mean. Very stereotypical new-age type shit XD.
    I feel I’ve earned the right to be a smart-ass about all of this since I’m acting as a jaded inhabitant/observer of this world, while I wait to unlock and unleash my inner reserves

    Good Hunting ;)

  114. I have seen sparkles most of my life but took no notice of them until I became spiritually aware. I thought they were normal until a pattern emerged. I see white sparkles when significant events are coming or happening (these tell me I’m on the right path) I have seen bright purple when physical danger is present (I saw these when an intruder broke into my work and stole a girls bag and then took her car) blue sparkles warn me that something could possible cause me mental harm (usually when someone I know is trying to make me feel bad about myself and I don’t see it)
    I have seen green a few times but don’t know what they mean. I also sometimes see sparkles mixed in with other signs, just last night I saw a sparkle in my right eye that was as large as a ten cent piece and it really freaked me out, then straight after a song that was the favourite song of someone I know who had died came on the tv twice in five minutes and the show I was watching had lots of references that related to this person. I know I was getting a visit by a spirit, and I knew he was there to bring me a message.
    I have tuned in to these sparkles for the last three years and have been developing my spiritual side as much as I can,but I have one problem that after reading your blog you may have explained. I suffer from awful mood swings that I have a lot of trouble controlling and I don’t know what to do. I am a very energetic, loving happy person who is always trying to help my fellow man, but out of no where I can become paranoid, depressed, angry, judgemental, and so down on myself that I can’t bear to be around other people and I just want to shut myself away. Sometimes I can feel like this for a whole week or two, sometimes just for 1 hour, and its like magic when it goes away, it’s as if the fog lifts and I’m a completely different person. Do you know if there is a way of not becoming trapped in this horrible dark state when it sets in? I have tried just about everything and I am even seeing a naturopath to help me treat the physical symptoms. I can’t explain why this happens to me, but I am curious about how this “empathic” trait you speak of works and what do you suggest I read on the subject?
    Thanks for the blog i found it very comforting . X

    • Thanks so much for finding me! If you look around the blog (on the right side column) you will see the other articles. Some of them are about empaths, hyper-sensitive people and ways to work with it. Also my book, which is on the blog is Does Your Child See Sparkles? It has tons of information in it that will answer your questions. – just too much to cover in the comment section. Blessings…M/

  115. Funny, a friend of mine just told me her son sees Sparkles. It hit me so hard that I use to see them as well and all the time. I have never told anyone this in my 44 years of life. When I was younger, I would close my eyes when going to sleep, it would start as green then turn to red sparkles. They would swoop in and rush around like glitter. Sometimes I would see purple ones as well. This lasted for years. My friend told me to go on line and research it. It brought back so many memories of this. I would watch them and fall asleep doing so. I need to read more about this.
