So, for the first time in awhile, I had this strange hallucination type thing. I woke up in the middle of the night, still half asleep. I lifted my head, so I could get more comfortable, and when I look at the wall, I see this orange blob on the wall. It freaked me out, so I ended up swatting my hand at it, and immediately became fully awake. I blinked, and it was gone. Was it just from being in a state of Hypnagogia perhaps? Or am i going crazy? It's not the first time things like this have happened. Once, the thing I saw when i woke up half asleep, was a horrifying face sticking out of the wall. Another time it was just flashes of color (like the orange blob). Every time, i'm practically half asleep, hardly even aware of where I am. I'm almost certain that's all it is, but maybe someone could verify that? Does this happen to anyone else? Thanks!

Sounds to me like heavy hypnopompia (which is hypnogogia's twin - the one you experience whilst waking up rather than falling asleep). You were probably in sleep paralysis for a few seconds upon wakening and were hallucinating. Nothing to worry about!
