This morning, in between two of my dreams, I saw an old woman sitting sadly on my chair dressed in a black robe.
So what, right? Just an old hag, right? Except that I didn’t feel fear or anything even remotely like it. And although she was only there for a blink of an instant, I turned over immediately afterwards. I never felt paralyzed.
I agree with Xetrov. Hypnopompic imagery is pretty rare actually, at least it’s not as common as hypnagogic imagery. Usually the hypnopompic imagery gets entwined (or is simply not created in the first place) with the SP experience so it becomes impossible to pinpoint it.
