I've had that once too, just after I'd woken up. Well, my eyes were open at least, but part of my brain must've been still asleep because the awake part was just awake enough to know I was still dreaming!
I've not had any experiences with ghosts as such, at least not seeing someone/something I hadn't previously known. I think that would be pretty scary, though exciting too! I'm keeping an open mind on whether or not they exist until its proven for sure one way or the other. I'd certainly like to believe they do, and I've known people that have had experiences. (More now!)
As for me, there was one time a while back when I was particularly emotionally distressed, on my own in my room, when I 'felt', very strongly, that there was someone standing extremely close behind me. It was a strong male presence, and I could even see out of the periphery of my eye a large strong torso in an old-fashioned button up cardi thing, though the image wasn't really 'solid' like real person would be. I didn't turn to look, partly for fear the image would vanish and partly because I didn't need to - I knew without looking that it was my father, who died in 1984, just standing there offering quiet strength and comfort. I'm tearing up here just thinking about it actually.
It's would be very easy to say that experience stemmed purely from my own wishful thinking and emotional need at that point, and possibly it did, but thing is, it's never happened before or since, and I can't imagine why I would ever conjure my father instead of my mother (also deceased). Anyone who knew our family dynamics would say the same. Yet it WAS dad, I know it was.
