#1: What do your hands look like in your dreams? Author: Sentient PostPosted: Mon 06 Sep, 2004

I thought it would be interesting to see what each of us see when we look at (or just see) our hands in our dreams.

Personally, my hands are blurry (hard to focus on) and (i recently realized) they are illuminated or something. I think the blurriness (hard to focus on) is because of the light (its bright). Does anyone else experience this?

I think ive become lucid by looking at my hands, but mostly i just look at my hands as part of my stabilization. At first they are bright and blurry but eventually i can see detail - and its still bright. Think of like, sunspots on the sun...or squinting your eyes to get a better (more vivid) view of a sunset thats just started.

I know for sure my hands are my hands. They look thinner. It's always dark when I see them though. I mainly use focusing on my hands to stay lucid.

But since the question was asked and I've thought more on it. I don't see the specifics to my hands (i.e. fingernails). I know they're mine and I know how they feel but I usually don't stand there long enough to look for other things on them.

I have read many articles on that when you look at your hands while you are dreaming, they will sort of melt away. ^-^ Or maybe thats in a astral projection or OBE ^^

I looked at my hands three times in lucid dreams.
In the first time they were out of focus and doubled, as if I saw at something vibrating
The second time they were just my hands. Certainly, I didn’t look into detail, so, maybe, fingerprints were different smile
The third time (this Friday) the left hand looked normal, but the third had several additional small fingers at the side reallybiggrin
Next time I’ll try to pay more attention smile

I sometimes use my hands as RC. I count my fingers almost all the time IRL, and when I try to count them in my dreams, I usualy got 4 or 6 fingers ;Z Or my hands are just messed up, then I know that Im dreaming. turn3
Or atleast most of the time ;Z

Sometimes they look blurry and sometimes not. And so far I have had more or less than 5 fingers. Once 1 finger wasn't even connected to my hand but I could still move it just fine. I haven't really looked at my hands in dreams the last few months since I usually know that I'm dreaming without doing any RCs.

My hands are really blurry when I focus on them and nothing else. I usually have 2 or 3 extra fingers on both my hands, but I can't move them. Also, my fingers are almost always bent in odd positions. It looks really weird...

Usually i don't see my hands or my limbs at all. On the occations i do they are mostly normal, with the exception of my hair, teeth and umm manhood wink5

My hair usually is different styles sometimes really cool ones lol, if ever focus is on my teeth they are breaking or falling out or i just can't open my jaw. As for my manhood it's sometimes normal, bigger, smaller - but my hands are nearly always normal, there was only one dream were they seemed different and that was after reading a post here about hands being weird in dreams.

I've had a huge eye on my palm staring at me, pretty cool smile
My hand has also had a small screen on it, it displayed some parts of what looked like a Simpson episode eek2

Once, my hands were looking horrid, they were green and decomposed, I could see the bones.
Yet I see my hands when I'm rubbing them to gain stability. They look normal, but once, I had eight fingers !

Once when I looked at my hands, my six fingers changed into little snakes. Pretty freaky smile Usually though they look pretty normal, except when I concentrate on morphing them into all kinds of shapes.

My hands have been different each time-
Once, they were both transparent, and looked weird,
Another time I had like, 6 fingers,
Another time, they were all messed up.....


Also, once I had a dream where I looked at my arm, and it was all split open and mangled up, and I could see the bones and veins and stuff, didnt get me an LD though, I just thought "nooo, my arm sadblauw " lol

#13: 6 fingers? OMG IMA FREAK!!!!! =P Author: Sentient PostPosted: Tue 07 Sep, 2004

Thats a clever technique! smile



Dang, you guys experience some freaky-sounding stuff w/ your hands! *eye in the palm?!?*

Last night in an LD i looked at my hands and my right hand had all the fingers missing! So i had this blurry palm that was illuminated that made it look all the more weird. On an interesting note, IRL i have a cut on my middle finger and one on my thumb (both of them very grievous, def. gonna leave scars), and i remember thinking my hand slightly incapacitated because i had lost normal function. overspannen

haha usually i have odd numbers of fingers, and sometimes its just like impossible to count them. sometimes they look normal at first then just start changing shape. its pretty gross! lol - it helps me become lucid tho...
