      Dreaming about reality checks w/out becoming lucid

      Not sure if this is the best place for this question BUT I'm having this little issue that I'm hoping someone can help me with. Lately I am CONSTANTLY dreaming about doing reality checks and teaching reality checks without becoming lucid. Last night I even dreamt that I was sharing my reality check techniques with a friend and ahowing Her this vibrating wristband. And I STILL didn't become lucid. What the heck is this all about and what can I do to correct it?

      Just keep doing whatever you're doing! These kind of 'pre-lucids' are actually a very good sign that you're on the verge of having fully lucid dreams, they mean that your waking intention is starting to carry over into the dream state.

      Always, no sometimes think it's me,
      But you know I know when it's a dream
      I think I know I mean a yes
      But it's all wrong
      That is I think I disagree

      Thanks, that's reassuring! I think it's most annoying because I normally enter a conscious awareness really easily and spontaneously, but lately it seems all I do is dream about checking to see if I'm lucid. ANNOYING! But I think you're right anf I'm just going to keep pushing forward ��

      This is happening because you are not prepared for a reality check to fail during a dream. It's like forgetting your lines during a play.

      You correct this by, before going to bed, imagine doing a reality check during a dream and becoming lucid. You're rehearsing for the dream world so you're prepared which allows the reality check to work.

      I think it's also worth examining how you are performing RCs: are you actually coming to presence during these moments, and seriously wondering if you could be dreaming, or are you performing them during WL with the expectation that you will be awake? If the latter, then I would say to distrust "reality" more--you really could be dreaming at any given moment!

      Excellent advice and I think you are right. Sometimes I think I am a bit procedural about my reality checks and I should take that moment to be truly conscious and aware. Good good advice

      when you perform RC, take the time to find a critical mind, simply truly and sincerely ask yourself what is the nature of your now.
      then you can focus on your senses, that would help with vivid dreams

      I wonder too that there are moments where we are convinced it is reality and we will never know it was a dream

      It happened to me again last night where I was dreaming and there were several people around me. I was screaming at the top of my lungs "WAKE UP WAKE UP, we are dreaming!" And I still didn't manage to become lucid. This is such a strange and new issue for me as I've been lucid dreaming spontaneously all my life, and now all of a sudden I feel I'm being blocked as I dream even as I'm doing reality checks in my sleep etc...
