Reality check

I was in a lucid dream, but when I did the finger threw hand reality check, it didn't go threw. Does anybody have any idea why or how?

Your dreams function based on your subconscious expectations. So, if you doubt that you are dreaming, even slightly...your expectations are that you are awake....your mind will respond accordingly and everything will occur as you would expect it to happen in real life...i.e. you will not be able to push your finger through the palm of your other hand.

So, you have to change your expectation. You have to really believe you are dreaming and that your finger will go through your hand before you make the attempt. It helps if you speak out loud in your dreams. Try saying out loud, "I'm Dreaming!" and really mean it, then attempt your reality check.
