6 doctors agree

In brief: Normal hallucination

Hallucinations prior to falling asleep (hypnogogic) or when just waking up (hypnopompic) are normal.
They may be more frequent when under the influence of drugs or meds or sleep deprived due to anxiety. It is probably related to coming out of dream state.
