I tried to do a reality check every time I saw green, but the thing is that green is everywhere, so I ended up doing RCs nonstop. Every time I had finished the RC and looked up again, I had to do it again, and again. Nonstop. Obviously it didn't work out in the long run, because I had to focus on other things also.

How do you do to get round this problem? If you see the same green thing twice (just after you RCd that thing, that is) do yo do a RC again?

I just can't do RCs nonstop. Should I change from green to something else or should I just do a RC once for each green thing?

LOL! Just the opposite! In dreams, you can breathe through your plugged nose! lach2 I have about 90% good results with this RC.

Surreal: "After that is the nose breathing one (which I use if there is no clock) which works roughly 50% of the time."

I was thinking like... how come it doesn't work... In a dream u can always breath through ur nose. My reasoning was; if it fails, u can't breath through ur nose, nor do u breath IRL. XP


I guess either I hold my breath in RL too (unlikely) or else my sub-c just makes it feel like I'm not breathing - when IRL, I am (which is more likely IMO).

green is too hard. that's why. There's too many "greens." RC at Red. There's only 1 red, othere than that it's marroon and pink. Yes red is the best.


Current LD goal(s): I want to get better DR and have LDs again..it's been so long!

For some strange reason red must be much more common where I live than where you live because I would much rather do green, even though I have been trying to breath through my nose while plugged so much that a small amount of air often leaks through my tears ducts, I was confusing the first couple of times it happened, but I figured out what was going on pretty quickly.

This RC looks interesting. I don't think I'll use green though. Perhaps you could use the sky or the sun though, because it's always there, but not neccessarily in your line of vision.

Now, how many people did a RC while reading my post? smile

Redimin, I thinks it's a damn good idea. I'm going to "go LaBerge" on dream experimentaion. I'll write down every detail of my dreams for like a week and see what the most recurring (but common IRL, of course) thing is, and do that as my topic.
Anyway, congratulations on the technique. It sounds promising. smile

I did

This worked for me, I think, I did an RC in a dream but I don't know if this was the trigger because I can only remember what happened while I was lucid, which wasn't long.

Yes this is a good tek!

I did it by mistake because I read about RCs and thought you were supposed to do them all the time during the day and so that is what I did. Very first day I had a real good(for me) lucid dream. Was controlable and everything.

But I just did the RC's when ever I thought about it not based on seeing one thing so perhaps about 5 an hour

Anyway, I'm not going to try this, it's a lot of work...I am trying the "move your fingers" tecnique now(don remember the name, it was the name of the creator).


where I can find more about "move your fingers" tecnique?

I was wondering that as well, I'm not sure which one he means. Instead of a color, I've been doing a WHOLE bunch when I'm on LD4all, since I'm on here all the time. It's good to do it everytime I click on a topic, since that will make me do at least 20000 a day. tounge2 Imagine how hard that was yesterday on my 120 post spree.

Hehe, I was planning on doing green, but I saw that fishmael had beaten me to it. Might as well go with second best. A few probably found this annoy- *ahem* - helpful. grin

Why are people getting confused over this? Just pick something that you see often but not so often that you are constantly doing a RC.I'm sure that doing a RC 24/7 will help with LDing but it seems totally unneccasary in my view.Just do it often enough that it becomes a common thing to do.

I think as long as you don't drive yourself crazy, there is nothing wrong with doing RC's many times throughout the day. Using something common is good, because it keeps your mind on doing RC's. The key is to do enough so that it becomes part of your regular thinking. If you are used to questioning your state of reality, then it is likely to happen in the dream state. I've been using text as an RC's. Constantly re-reading text to see if it changes.

Your dreams seems to be trying to elude you. Just keep incubating Dreamsigns (DS) and you'll make it. smile
