Has Anyone Ever HALLUCINATED A SPIDER When Waking Up?
I just woke from a nap and hallucinated a giant, thick, fuzzy black spider! Scared the crap out of me and WOKE ME RIGHT UP!

Anyway, I was all snoozy and cozy, woke up ahead of my alarm, glanced at the time on the clock (saw it accurately - I KNOW I was awake), then past the clock on my bedside table I SWEAR I saw a gigantic spider crawling on my cell phone. Scared me to death and I became instantly wide awake. I couldn't see it so I kept staring and staring and finally reached out and turned the light on. No spider! Looked everywhere. It was SO REAL.

Anyway, I Googled first and it's apparently one of the most common hallucinations? Who knew. Then someone mentioned "kundalini shakti" and I thought, oh gosh, I need to ask GLP! They'll know!

So... anyone got any ideas on WTF? Is my brain about to short circuit or something??

It was the size of a baby tarantula and I surely would've been able to find that sucker if it was actually there. I've never had anything like this happen before.

No. A week or so ago while falling asleep at night I felt something crawl up my face, could have been a spider. That scared the crap out of me.

Apparently right before you fall asleep and right when you wake up are likely times for hallucinations. But why spiders?! That's so scary!

Re: Has Anyone Ever HALLUCINATED A SPIDER When Waking Up?
I can't help you either - but like two mornings ago, right before I woke up, I had a very vivid spider dream. It was just a small spider, about the size of a bottle cap (including legs) but it had freaky sideways fangs - four on each side.
What's going on with spiders this week???

I've had similar hallucinations all my life. I remember thinking when I was 4 that they couldn't be real because I wouldn't be able to see them so well in the dark. Funny thing, I'm not at all scared of spiders.

Yes..Once about a year ago, I awoke about 3:a.m and looked in front of me near my window and I thought I saw a Massive Huge Black Spider walking across the wall, I thought..
Oh my how am I going to kill that, kind of scared me, I turned on the light and it was gone...very strange indeed..

This one was pretty big and substantial. Not one of those thin legged suckers, like a baby tarantula, maybe a little larger than a bottle cap but thick too!

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 8392006


I have never had this happen ever. Now sometimes I think I see something out of the corner of my eye or whatever, but nothing like this. I even thought "good thing I woke up to see it or it would be in here and I wouldn't know it..." but then it wasn't there at all!

Re: Has Anyone Ever HALLUCINATED A SPIDER When Waking Up?
I've never seen a spider but i have seen some interesting things.

I woke up to see my bedroom walls covered in writing, it looked like hebrew, or asain letters, they faded away after about 10 seconds but would kinda flash when i blinked...

That's happened about 3 times up to date.

Now what really freaks me out...I've awoken twice now and hallucinated a large orb floating up twords the ceiling, it looked like it was composed of articulately entwined buck antlers forming a perfect sphere and had a crimson glowing light in the center of it, the second time i saw one the orb in the center was a blueish green light.

They faded away after like 5-7 seconds but it had me pretty freaked...

Poor guy...he never has nightmares or sleep paralysis or hallucinations..but for 30 years he has had to put up with me screaming in my sleep or when I'm waking to an hallucination...I tend to leave a light on just in case..I think the spider one is more likely to happen if the room is dark.

The writing is interesting! Have you been able to find out anything about that?

No idea what the orb you saw might be. My spider was moving too, it was crawling it's fat self up onto my cell phone, it was SO VIVID!

Apparently they're hypnopomic hallucinations caused by a sleep disorder.

Most people who have these almost always report seeing spiders...Why spiders i wonder??

I've never seen spiders but I'd prefer them over the antler orbs anyday...

It's pretty common from what I have read...Why we see spiders rather than butterflies or birds I am not sure...

Dimensional sleeping is sometimes seeing into a dimension we cannot see while we are awake...We wake up before that dimension has left...Then here is the Spider...

It is really strange that it's spiders. I don't have a particular fear of spiders. I mean, I don't like them or anything, but I expect them to be around and am not goofy if I see one or anything.

Maybe it's scary so you wake up for some reason. Who knows. I hope it was a one time thing tho, that's for sure. As long as it's not something wrong in the ol' brain I guess.

Re: Has Anyone Ever HALLUCINATED A SPIDER When Waking Up?
My autistic son used to have night terrors when he was little, he'd be awake, but asleep, and screaming and freaking out because he'd see giant, black spiders all over his ceiling and the walls. It was so awful to see him go through that, but I just tried to talk him down and be there for him. I'd turn on the lights and eventually he'd calm down and go right back to sleep. He and I were discussing it the other day and he still remembers it, over 10 years ago it was. I have had experiences where I am asleep, but I think my eyes were open and I was seeing things that weren't there and I once saw a large man standing near my bed, and I woke up screaming so loud and turned on the light. Turned out those issues were caused by sleep apnea, makes the brain lack oxygen and go haywire. Thank God it got better, it was awful, the nightmares were so terrible.

Re: Has Anyone Ever HALLUCINATED A SPIDER When Waking Up?
I've had the spider hallucinations my whole adult life. As a teen I would wake up paralyzed for a few minutes. As an adult it has mostly been spiders but occasionally it is worse, setting people. I used to think they were ghosts or robbers. When it happens I feel out my family because I'll go from laying down sleeping to running through the house chasing people that aren't there. Lol.

Anyway, check with your doctor about idiopathic hypersomnia. It's similar to narcolepsy but they don't know what causes it. The spider hallucinations are pretty common for us though.
