So at least twice a week, I will be dreaming and then I will realize I am in a dream. Whether or not it's considered lucid, I don't know.
So on three separate occasions, while I became conscious that I was dreaming, I started to perform the LBRP, to see what happens.
And on all three separate occasions, when I start tracing the pentagrams, a giant tape-worm looking creature leeches onto me, and I'm forced to deal with him. I've never completed the ritual in the dream state, because this thing always seems to pop up. In one instance I heard him say "I need energy!".
I'm thinking this is my subconscious fear that when you perform the LBRP you light up astrally, and perhps this is a monster of my own making that holds back my ritual.
It has me rather perplexed, and while it's not important to me in the least bit, I'm extremely curious if this is an actual astral leech or if it's just my imagination. I hope someone more versed can help. Thanks !
