You probably just have strong reactions to sensory deprivation. When one of your senses is not getting any input, your brain becomes hyperactive and reacts more strongly to the smallest of signals. People have been known to have hallucinations and hear things when they are alone in a dark room. Best not to worry about it.
Hey, I get this too! Only I don't see negative things. I normally see faces. I wouldn't worry at all. I normally even try to have fun with it. Who says worms are bad? I sort of lie back and just watch whatever images are being produced. I would also recommend, however, eliminating/decreasing any anxiety-producing activity during your day or allowing yourself to wind down before bed. While the images are still coming, however, just take time to sorta get a kick out of them. Honestly, I've been "seeing" things with my eyes closed before falling asleep since I was like 3... I thought it was normal. (Maybe it is) Good luck!
It might sound like jibberish, but sometimes I get the same thing. I love to read horror and sometimes I read stuff that can get itno your head. Not as in "She died. The End." But as in scarier. If you go to my devArt there are some examples. Anyways, after erading these I sometimes see these things. And you're right, there is this static blue thing when you stare into darkness! But I don't get it ALL the time. Seriously.
I'd try yoga or something to calm down. Tell yourself, it's your imagination and try to do things to take your mind off it. Watch something funny or do something you enjoy before going to sleep. I'm sure everything will be fine. If things don't imporve I say you should tell someone. Parent, friend or someone. If things still don't improve, see a councillour. (sp?)
oops, damn enterkey and so on and so on, but better catch some sleep otherwise they'll come to life and stand next to you xD I went without sleep for 3 weeks, then I saw these things like they were real and had to take antipsychotics ^^ FUN!!
I've got the same, nothing to worry about. Look at the bright side of it xD when you'r on the train, having nothing to do, you close your eyes and look at what your mind brings you now What kind of things do you see? I saw a little girl rotting away at speedtempo, a fiery phoenix poking my eyes out, a devil laughing with me, a pile of fish (?!), a lion ripping someone to pieces, really bloody ^^, a man with a
If it's adversely affecting your functionality in day to day life, it's probably something worth going to a docto over. If it's just kind of a troublesome annoyance, it's probably some sort of guilt/fear that's just sitting in your subconscious that just appears when your mind wanders, in which case you might consider getting counselling for.
I see strange things when my eyes are closed too, the images used to always be frightening. Try and just observe the images rather than react to them, or try tiring yourself out mroe before you attempt to go to sleep. Unfortunately for us, we're rather visual, but hopefully it'll stop soon.
It's normal, doesnt mean your crazy, has actually nothing to do with anything in your mind but the way your optical cortex responds to the lack of light occupying the receptors. Think of the rods (receptors of light in the eye) firing off the last few messages down the optic nerve (wire from your eye to your brain-which interprets the light messages) and that its just firing off the last of its transmissions before the feed of transmissions (light entering your eye) stopped (when you closed your eye)
Your eyes hold on to more light than most people. What you are seeing is 'leftover' light from things you've looked at during the day. You know like when you stare at a light bulb and close your eyes and see the wire thing in the middle? It's the same concept. Your eyes just trap more light. As far as I know, theres no way to really stop it, aside from knowing it's scientific rather than you going crazy.
Oh, wow! I can't believe this would happen to someone else!
It doesn't happen to me anymore, but it always happened when I was a little girl. I thought it was normal back then, and enjoyed it, even! Of course, it freaked my mom out big time, she took me to the doctor, who said I must be making things up.
Seriously, it's nothing to worry about (I think.) I would see them when it was pitch dark regardless of whether I opened or closed my eyes. Try sleeping in a room with a little bit of light, or, like I used to do, just look at them. When I was little they helped me fall asleep.
I would see all sorts of things... geometric shapes, colorful dots, animals, all in colors that were bright but didn't exactly bother me.
Seeing things in the dark or with your eyes closed is pretty common I think. Especially if you've been doing something new, or something you hadn't done for a while (a particularly notorious trigger is actually the video game Tetris, which has most new players seeing blocks before their eyes whilst getting to sleep )- that's part of the learning/memorising process I think. The other thing is that when you're falling asleep, you do pass through a stage where strange visions are common (A hypnagogic state I think is the term). Most of the time we forget this part of sleeping, but it's not abnormal to be aware of and remember some or all of it, especially if your mind is still more "awake" from various stimuli, like continuing to think hard, watching TV, reading etc.
Seeing things in the darkness is normal too. The "fuzz" and illusory lights in the dark are normal enough, and the brain will start trying to seek out patterns in noise ("faces" in clouds, on walls, etc) so you will often see these sorts of things under those conditions.
When I am falling asleep, I sometimes hear voices. They usually just say random, nonsensical strings of words, but sometimes they say sad or scary things. I read something on the Internet saying that it was actually a common experience in overtired or stressed out people. I'm guessing this is pretty much the same thing.
Got to bed a little earlier, and stop watching television and being on the computor and hour before your about to go to bed. When you watch tv and or go on the computor you get this effect. I have it all the time when im up studying for uni even BEFORE i fall asleep my eyes go beserk trying to adjust. Try this out for a few weeks, earlier bed time, no tv computor 1-2 hrs before you fall asleep and you should feel better for it. The crazy flickering/images should die down!
If you find its still there, then you should take some time to asses if your feeling anxious or worried about somthing.Have a talk about it with a friend, family member or a docter what your describing is not a mental disorder but a common side effect to stress.
