Another question about reality checks...

Postby tompine73 » 31 Jan 2015 00:35

Is using a beep on the hour from my phone an okay method to prompt a reality check or is it too lazy/thoughtless (taking for granted that the actual reality check is done genuinely and thoughtfully)

It would all depend if you can get a beep in your dream otherwise you arent going to reality check in it seeing that is the only time you do them. Some times are subconsciousness doesnt like certain symbols so just wont bring them into our dream, if its against a beep, you may never reality check in a dream.

You'd probably be better off just to guess when its probably been an hour or two and doing a reality check then rather then rely on creating a beep before you do one. Or do reality checks to something commonly you dream about.
The only thing to fear is the fear itself

Thanks, that makes sense. I tried it for a couple of days and it obviously got me reality checking but I did feel there was a lack of prospective memory or spontaneity about it.
