Reality checks
PostPosted: Thu 09 Mar, 2017  Reply with quote

hi guys i was just wondering how reality checks really work. You can't control your body or think about doing reality checks when you're sleeping, so how do you end up doing reality checks without conciousness? I've had a few lucid dreams before so i'm not asking for advice or anything i'm just wondering what is the logic behind reality checks if you can't control yourself until after you become lucid? I feel like i did a really bad job at explaining this so if you need any clarification on what i meant just ask me. thanks for any answers and input in advance!

I think the concept of reality checks is that you're supposed to do them regularly in waking life. So when you're in a dream (and think you're awake), you'll just naturally do them out of habit.

Actually, I believe it's the awareness that comes with doing the reality check and that gets carried on to the dream world by force of habit is what achieves lucidity, the RC being then just that, something you can use to make sure it's a dream. What I'm trying to say is that doing a RC mindlessly would not usually yield results. In my experience, a sudden rise in awareness is what prompts me to RC, not the other way around.


Current LD goal(s): Prolonged lucidity.
