DataWraith, thank you so much for the link, I will be exploring the site to get more answers to my question. I am one of the people that believe in one of the misconceptions mentioned "Dreams contain messages that are lost with lucid dreaming." But I am assuming that most people get messages in their dreams. May be by the time you master lucid dreams you already know how to decipher messages in your dreams. I also have very vivid dreams and love to go wherever my dreams take me, except in nightmares or dreams influenced by the last thing I watched on tv.
I had heard of lucid dreams in the past and just associated it with Freud, good recall or dreams where you feel you left your body. But in the last few days I just could get my mind off it and decided to do more research. I am still not convinced as to why, don't you just want to turn consciousness off at some point? Well, I am very open to learning something new.
Thanks for the information.
