Watercolour & Coloured Pencils on Paper

I sometimes do "reality checks" to see if I am awake of dreaming. There are many different ways you can do these "checks" like counting your fingers (in dreams you often have more or less than in reality), checking the time (in dreamtime it's usually something strange like 99:69 o' clock), turning light switches on/off (they don't work in dreamworld).
I do this to have a lucid dream, which means I am aware that I am dreaming and can take control of the dream. The reality check that works best for me is to hold my nose shut with my fingers and try to breathe. I had my first lucid dream as I realized I could breathe under water (because I'm lying in bed, obviously, surrounded by air). So breathing has become my "trigger" for it and in dreams I can breathe even when holding my nose shut, as my brain doesn't let my "real" hand do it because I am in sleep paralisation.
