Dreaming while awake


Recommended Posts

Sometimes when I lay down I am dreaming before I even close my eyes. It's an odd occurrence, doesn't really bother me..It's just kind of fascinating in my opinion. I think they call it hypnopompic hallucinations? I was just curious how many others might do this. With me, it usually only happens when I am really tired, such as sleep/nap deprived or if I've taken a sleep aid.

It is hypnagogic hallucinations.  The hypnopompic hallucinations are when you are coming out of sleep.

Same with me ... I do get them also ... like you, I also get them when I am really extra tired and am starting to doze off.  Usually I hear voices with them, but I fall asleep soon after and wake up fine.
