Couldn't fly to the right.

Has this happened to anyone before?

It's the first time it has happened to me. I've had trouble flying before: being pulled of course or not being able to go high.

This was different though. I could fly fine, except for the fact that I couldn't turn to the right, lol. When I tried to fight against it I had the feeling like I was trying to push through a force field with powerful wind blowing in my face.

Hopefully it's away by tomorrow and it was a mental thing. Just curious :?: .

I've had something similar ~

I've had flying and telekinesis in dreams before and then lost the powers in the dream and then slowly regained them.

And when I "slowly regained them" it was really hard and I had to put a lot of effort in to just float for example.

That would be my best guess too. :)

I've hit 'force fields' before too. They are annoying, but must be a mental block of some sort. They are a mystery to me.
If we all lucid dreamed this world would be a better place.

Noice! I thought of that too, Peter.
If you can't go right, go left until you can! :lol:

Yeah, this has happened to me too. Flying can be a bit frustrating..probably because it's so awe inspiring.
I've had problems turning a direction, though. Just as I've had issues with take off. I have been able to fly since my earliest lucid dreams....but only if I built lift. haha...yup. I had to catch air. That was around age 7. It took me about 18 more years to learn how to float (more embarassingly in the dream, I "remembered" how to float as if I always could....I say "embarassingly" because Max-Headroom was making fun of me at the time....meh, he was a significant dream image that I'll allow it).

There have been times when I couldn't self-aviate without closing my eyes in the dream. Many times, I fly with no problem, but then keep accending and have a hard time coming back down (fear of landing....because it will hurt...even though I'm lucid...ok, then).
That's when I formed the postulate (or humble opinion) that lucid dreaming isn't so much in levels as it is configurations of conciousness. Sometimes, parts are missing or preocupied....and so, you can't fly to the right. :D
