Hey SB! I have a question for you. I seem to be stuck. lol. I keep having experiences where I know I am pulling from my body, but for some reason I can't go as far as I did before. For example, just yesterday morning I woke up, laid back down with the intention of projecting, and then I was able to float upward toward my ceiling, feel through it, and then suddenly things became solid feeling again (which I've learned to associate with my AP turning to LD). This happened about four times, then I finally gave up and decided to lucid dream, where I flew around changing objects, moving buildings out of my way, etc. lol! IT was fun, but not what I was wanting at the time.
This morning, I could get my hands and arms out and even watched them wave around in front of my face. I felt the table next to me and reached over and felt my husband next to me. However, I COULD NOT for the life of me come completely out.
I don't know why this is happening other than my neighbor has been mowing his lawn early in the morning and waking me up. I wonder if this sound is keeping me from APing completely. What also really gets on my nerves about it is that if I try at night when everything is silent, I always fall completely asleep and cannot control it. In the mornings I have no problem, but at night I just can't seem to do it.
Any suggestions? Will sounds that my physical body is experiencing inhibit my astral projection? Lucid dreaming is really, REALLY fun, but I've got some business I'd like to attend to in the astral realm. lol. And I'd REALLY like to get started instead of sitting around with my hands floating above my face or playing with my head in the attic.
