All he sees are little children watching him
Type of Spiritual Experience
There is the rather intriguing pssibility that these are children able to go out of body and in his hypnagogic state he is able to see them. Otherwise they will be most likely from his perceptions
A description of the experience
I've been having these lately too and upon waking I am always seeing people. Sometimes, I wake up and sometimes I feel they are good little kids just trying to see if I am sleeping and when I wake up they would hide. I just woke up and finally did a google search.
A few minutes ago upon waking up I saw maybe six little kids looking at me, standing near my bed and I finally had it with them, and I threw them my middle finger and they were dissolving. This is seriously so freaky.
