Hey all!

Long time reader, first time poster. I'm really hoping you lovely dreamers can help me out with this:

So I've been lucid dreaming pretty regularly for about a year now on my quest to astral project. I've had really good success--flying, walking through walls, interacting with the dreamscape itself, talking to characters...

Well lately, that's all changed. My last 4 lucid dreams have been VERY different. I have been virtually trapped in unfamiliar buildings. Every time I try to go outside, whether that be walking through the walls, or going through a window, I am stopped by what would happen in WAKING life, i.e. a thud. So I tried opening a window the conventional way by sliding it up... I finally felt like I was free--but as I climbed through the window, I found I was in just another room of the building.

I also have found a considerable decrease in dream characters. The last 3 of 4 lucid dreams I've had have been just me. Very little going on around me, and nearly no one in my dreamscape.

What gives? Anyone know what could be causing this profound change? Why my "powers" seem to be disappearing?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!  help!

Hi and welcome to the Pulse.
Your increased awareness and that slight difference in the feel of these experiences may have been a test. As you become more proficient in controlling your nocturnal adventures, I found many tests of my abilities occured. Being in a similar position to your above post, they become part of development leading to greater things.
How does this sound to you?
You'd have to work something out in order to remove the apparent block.

The slightest doubt and your 'powers' will disappear.  Maybe you had a little trouble one time and doubt set in?  You'll just need to get your 'believing' mind set back on line! Smiley

Having said that, I remember one time when I bonked my head against the wall, trying to go through it, and there seemed to be absolutely no reason for it.  I believed I could go through it just like every other time, so who knows?  Maybe it was a test of some sort -just to see how you would handle it.  Have you ever felt like you are being tested in your LDs?  When I first started I had the feeling I was being tested, and before long there was no doubt in my mind that was the case.  They become that obvious. Just go with your instincts on what you are supposed to accomplish in whatever environment you find yourself in. Do it without fear and frustration, be kind to those you meet and you will pass. The changing of your environment and number of DCs  is very normal. This will cycle around and more interesting things will return in time.

Thank you for your replies! That makes a lot of sense.  As a matter of fact, I really do feel like I'm being tested... in a lot of areas of life, not just LD.  So I suppose the fact that it's showing up there as well shouldn't surprise me much.

Ok, so if it IS a test, how do I get past it?  Just try to increase my belief? It's crazy because walking through walls / ceilings / windows have never been a problem. Even from my first LD ever, I could do that... so it's really weird that out of nowhere it starts happening now... and I can't seem to EVER get outside these buildings! *sigh*

Coincidentally, this "blockage" thing started once I really started focusing on Astral Projection. I haven't actually had an AP yet, but have been really close.  But ever since, my LDs have been this way.  Could that be related?

Again, thank you both so much for your responses!

You are having projections, the labels used tend to confuse things so much. Any experience that's not in the physical world is a projection of your conciousness.
The clarity of your experiences will increase too as you become more aware of the physics of the non physical.
Tests tend to repeat in a different scenario until you find the correct answer to your particular predicament.
This shows you are capable of far more than you know.
Think when they present themselves, a physical world mindset may not.work at all. You do have the answer within yourself, it's the realisation you need to find.
One of mine that took time to resolve was being inside a window and doorless room. I manifested everything from dynamite to waiting to get out. It took a while. Then I realised if I wanted a door to appear all I hd to do was draw one on the wall. I was out instantly.
Thinking this way yields results.

This was, in a word, FANTASTIC.  That makes so much sense.  I thank you tremendously.

Once when I was prevented from leaving a building, it turned out that it was because the test was inside.  I wasn't supposed to be focusing on getting out.  As soon as I dealt with what was inside, I was released.  The test inside happened to be a man who grabbed my arm and wouldn't let go.  I had to figure out how to get him to let go of me.  

Every test situation is different so be open to all possibilities.  Use your intuition!  Smiley

AP and LD  - These are just labels.  Just concentrate on keeping your awareness on 'full'  (full lucidity), be helpful, offering your services to others, and enjoy the journey that is laid before you.  Some interesting things will open up!

Interesting stuff!  And you know what? It makes me feel a lot better that they're all just labels. Maybe I've been concentrating too hard on achieving a certain type of experience, instead of letting it just happen.

Now, about the test part... From where do you think these tests originate?  I can completely understand that I'm being tested... but by whom or what?  And what will happen once I figure out how to pass the test?  This is so interesting to me...

Exactly!  Smiley

My testers have never revealed themselves to me.  I do have spirit guides that show up on occasion but they haven't spoken to me on the subject of tests.  After the tests are passed - Szaxx has been doing this for a very long time and has many stories!  As for myself, my mission has been to give 'love energy' to specific people.  The love energy showed up last year as one of my 'powers' and it can be turned on and off at will and can grow to overwhelming proportions. I have one validation so far that I'm giving the love energy to real people.  A girl who has crossed over and a boy who is still alive on earth.

Send some my way too, will ya? That sounds amazing!

Szaxx, I would love to hear some of your stories... do you have links to where you've posted them in other threads?

The 'Dirty City' (a topic on here) was a test, I've had a couple of others recently where I've been in a very young and weak lads body. I was in the wrong place at the wrong time and ended up in prison. I am reconstructing it but time isn't allowing it just yet. Last nights was a new one. It'll be posted soon. I was on an alien planet with aliens and had a task to complete. It will take time to complete as the recall process is only made through triggers (don't worry about this tekky stuff) it's a long way off for most beginners but not all. This alien one will be finished first though.
For an interesting read on what I was upto 30 years ago you can Google ' large scale retrieval'
It takes an hour to read.
Enjoy.
