      Collecting Reality Check Prompts

      Hey there,

      I'm making these little daily reality check lists, and could use more suggestions. I'm using the prompts to create daily lists of 4 targets each day, then rotate every day. Also, making monthly targets (4/month) that are less frequent, and a little more unusual. That way it combines building prospective memory and also critical reflective attitude.

      I have a list already, but no worries, I want all of your ideas. Better to assume I haven't got that one yet

      If you're going to help me out, I would appreciate if you separate your suggestions by 1) common reality checks and 2) unusual reality checks.

      Then, further separate them into 4 distinct categories: visual prompt, auditory prompt, passive kinesthetic, and active kinesthetic. Examples: Seeing something, hearing something, having something happen to you (feeling, tasting), and doing something. Seeing a mushroom, hearing your name, feeling pain, using a key.


      Thank you

      That's a great idea!
      well, acording to me:

      1) COMON
      -flicking the lights on and off.
      -checking my hands, by counting fingers and staring at them front to back, a few times.
      -looking up on the roof at home, or outdoors by loking at the sky, clouds for sure!
      -looking at the time or reading any sign with letters or pictures. (at times I try to make it change with the mind).
      -every time seeing #3 of anything, a must for me! whats your number?

      2) UNCOMON
      - Hearing a sound 3 times
      - getting hit by an animal
      - checking at a sign in my car "am I dreaming?" every time I go in and out

      ...Hmmm? I thought this would be easy.. got to do those RCs with tasting, feeling, doing something..etc.

      Thank for this!

      Awesome. I love the one about seeing shapes in the clouds, and also numbers. Didn't consider that, but how often we see numbers in dreams. I will add them to the list.

      Well. I don't know if anyone else is interested in these things, but I figured I would share. When I started them, I had so so much trouble getting the prompts. Now I am really starting to get good at it, and I know this is going to help me on the road to lucidity. Already my dreams are so much more vivid, and I am noticing the dream signs more.

      Anyways, this is what I am using the prompts for. So far I have made one full week (common prompts), and almost done with one for each month (more uncommon prompts). I am also working on a second week of common prompts for some variety. The way I've been working it is that I make them my desktop background image for the day, then switch them out daily. I do this while continuing to work on the monthly prompts at the same time. Also, I don't stop RCing to the old prompts the next day, I just am not as focused on them. So I focus on the 4 for that day, and if I catch some of the old ones, I RC to those as well.

      I made it so that each day consists of one of each type of prompt: visual, auditory, passive kinesthetic, active kinesthetic.

      The goal is to start noticing the details in life more - and RC to them. That way, I will notice the details in my dreams more, and hopefully RC to them, too. Also, building critical reflective attitude by doing the monthly prompts, which are less common. I want to be focused more on the sensory experience of the dream world, and less sucked into the story of them. I know that is key to lucidity.

      In case anyone would like to work with these reality checks, here are my monthly prompts, finished, with a seasonal bonus task. August has been updated with the bonus task, so re-attaching.
