Its sad actually when I first think about it because this lucid dream could have been my first Lucid Dream through reality check.
Whats reality check?
If you have been through the tracks of reading books on Lucid Dreaming you would know. For others, well, reality check is a practice that you have to keep doing several times in a day. It includes asking yourself “Am I Dreaming” and then you have to do a reality check of your status.
These reality checks could be anything. Like trying to block your throat (internally) and stop breathing. Or blocking your nose with your index finger and numb. If you can still breathe then you are dreaming.
I devised my reality check by looking at the lines of my hand twice. If I am dreaming, the lines on my hand will change.
Doing this check all day several times will make me ask the same question in my dream.
So the dream I had today, was sort of me running away from 2 kids on the street who are throwing stones at me (LOL. In real life I would have bashed them). And while running I remember that I should do a reality check. What if this was a dream. So I stop. Look at my hands several times but the lines on my hand remain the same ( although this isn’t supposed to be possible). I remember only a minor detail that my hand would seem a little bloated from the middle but the lines were same so I fall back into the arms of dream assuming that its real.
The dream continues with me reaching my house and so on not aware that its a dream.
Well, the good news is that I used my reality check in a dream. This has happened for the first time. And another good news is, now I remember most of the dreams that I see which is a good sign as per the books I have read.
