I don't think there's any doubt that Rick was imagining hearing Lori. The way I understood it was that even he knew she was dead and that he was hearing her "ghost" or whatever. When he realized that the voice was Lori's, that's when he stopped appealing to go to the "safe place", because he knew it wasn't real.
