With the Finger Stretching check, you grip a finger firmly, and try to elongate it by pulling. If it stretches, you're dreaming.

See Talk:Lucid Dreaming: Reality Checks: Finger Stretching for a discussion of this reality check's effectiveness.

Examples of this reality check working[edit]

  • I thought to myself "If I am dreaming, then my finger will stretch if I tug on it hard.". I did, and I became lucid.

Examples of this reality check failing[edit]

  • This has yet to fail for the first editor of this article.
