      Focus on your spine RC

      Hi all, anyone fancy taking part in a small experiment? Basically I have stumbled across an odd type of RC in a lucid dream and after trying it a few times in dreams I have found itís quite affective and I wondered if it would work for others.

      What to do:

      So next time youíre suspicious youíre in a dream, or if youíre lucid already stand still and bring your attention and focus to your spine/ back. Donít turn to look at it or feel it with your hand, just feel it as it is behind you.

      Now I wonít tell you what happens when I do this as I want to see if the RC varies from person to person and if it brings lucidity for others.

      If anyone fancies having a go I would be interested to hear your findings.

      Thanks

      Thanks, look forward to hearing if it works for you.

      I first stumbled across this in a lucid dream by chance and since Iíve only been able to repeat it twice as I often forget to try when dreaming. Iím interested to see if others have the same experience or if itís something I just expect to happen now after experiencing it once.

      This reminds me of the HOOF Technique (Heat observation Of Foot) Techniquea little bit. Except you are feeling IF you have a spine or body and not the Heat observation Of Foot? Is this mostly a textile kind of RC?

      Iím not aware of the technique. I will have to look it up. Itís not so much about checking if you have a spine/ body itís how the dream/ body reacts when you check. I wonít say too much as I donít want to influence anyones experience who may try. It may only work for myself but weíll see.

      Yeah, I wonder if people have tried already? What we need is an RC that is reliable for everyone can use on DV.
      How many other RC or Reality Tests do you use?


      HOOF Technique (Heat observation Of Foot)
      To do this Technique. :
      1) Daytime practice - build the habit of checking if your feet are the same temperature. This is essentially identical to a reality check. This one you were socks on both feet or gloves you can't do it with your feet.

      2) Nightime practice - Wear the sock on your left foot or glove during the night. This should have a subtle influence on your dream body, and then when you notice or check as will become a habit due to your waking hour practice, during the dream this should cue you into lucidity.
      check regularly. Trust me, I'm still getting a handle on it, myself. It's better to check whenever something dreamlike occurs during the day. Essentially just consider it another test to add to your reality checks (and you should be performing at least 10 of those a day, with other RC)

      With everything though, it takes a bit of getting used to. You still have to do the practicing... It's not as easy as people may think. I recall at times I pulled the sock off my foot or I was just uncomfortable at the beginning.
      I don't know about anyone else, but, I did have weird things happen in some of my lucid dream where DCs show up with lost limbs or people point at my feet?

      Maybe. I doubt Im the only one who has tried something like this but I havenít seen anyone mention it. Of course it has to be reliable among others as well which is why I asked for peopleís feedback.

      I also do digital clock and text change as my most reliable RCs as well as a hand RC involving my wedding ring. Iím not sure if this RC will be as reliable as those but Iím curious to see if others are able to use it.

      I would say itís not like the hoof technique. Thereís no extra steps in the day itís simply just another kind of RC.

      Thanks for sharing the technique. Eager to try it.

      So a while ago I bought a bunch of weird funny socks just to try this out for this summer. I figure if the socks are weird looking, it will remind me to question reality, plus, they might leak over into my dreams. Plus, it was fun picking out weird socks...
