RC - Mole check?

Postby Nocturnal » 13 May 2011 00:16

I have a mole on my hand, does looking at it (and asking myself if I am dreaming, of course) work as a RC?

I'd say it's a good RC to have in your collection.
The mole may be unusual or missing in a dream. As long as you don't get too confused in a dream as to where your mole went or why it's so strange looking, you're good to go.
I might start using it myself.

Normal mole = Not dreaming, but better do another reality check just in case.

No mole, freaky mole, many moles, peek-a-boo mole, cheeze mold, monster veins.. where's my hand? = you're probably dreaming!

I find looking at my hands in general is a very good reality check. I think it's because:

1) It throws your self awareness back into your body ("hey, I have a body! I'm not just a floating observer in this crazy world!")

2) It forces you to focus up close which makes the details more visually intense

3) You'll recognize whether your hands are your own, have five fingers, appear in all the right proportions, etc.

Also moving your hands in the right way stimulates the conscious brain. LaBerge recommends rubbing them together to stimulate the kinetic sensation which really does work to make you more lucid.

Let us know how your mole looks in your dreams!!

if you look at the mole and then look away and say to yourself and truly mean it that it wont be there when you look again it could be a good RC

Yo, the staring at hands works! You can read my topic in the lucid dreams section, but basically I stared at my hands, didnt see anything odd, but somehow it clicked. My lucidity didnt last long, but i am a noob, and it worked!
I am an Engineering student, and have yet to experience a lucid dream. Currently on break, I am hoping to try and master the technique as it will give me some peace during the busy school year. Any advice or links are appreciated. Feel free to pm me.

Wow! I have a great announcement to make! I was dreaming last night, when I did a RC. I counted my fingers.... all five were there, and by habit, I checked my mole on my right hand, and it was not there!

In its place, was a redish whiteish dot. I instantly knew I was dreaming, and became lucid (my second time!)!

So this DOES WORK!

Unfortunately, I am inexperienced with LDing and woke up after trying to fly in a few seconds.

Congrats!! How interesting what your brain did to your mole!
You've confirmed for me that hand-related checks are the best!!

Some people draw a big L for lucid on the back of their hand and use it to reality check. Actually I've never done it before so I'm gonna give it a try now and see what happens...
