Quick run down on my situation. I have always been interested in learning to Lucid dream but never really stuck to a regime to get myself focused enough to achieve it. Well for about two weeks I've been sticking to writing in my journal and writing down how many dreams I have per night on my calendar, and it has made a positive effect, going from remembering none to 2, 3 per night on occassion (but mostly just 1). I hope I'm doing this right, I really want to obtain the ability.
So while I was thinking about it this morning I had a question I wanted to ask. Erin said in her podcast, that you can talk to your subconcious if you wish it hard enough. So I am curious to know if it is possible to learn things in your dream that you might not being able to conciously grasp, such as overhearing someone speak French all the time and then training yourself to learn the language whilst dreaming. Or perhaps dreaming of working out with weights far heavier than you are accustomed to and then seeing direct results in your real physique? Where would it end?
It's common knowledge that we only use 5-15% (varying figures from different sources) of our brain power. Are we able to unlock more of our capacity with the concious ability in a world with no limitations but your imagination?
I suppose another question would be, if it is possible to do this then can we retain the knowledge and ability once we have awoken from our slumber?
I'm fairly sure (no proof) I have had many dreams in the past where things I dreamt about have come true months after. Now do people have these often but we are mentally conditioned to put it down to 'de ja vu' because it scares people that we may be able to see into the future in our dreams?
I know this may sound all a little bizarre and crazy. I guess I'm just feeling really opened minded after several cups of tea in the morning, but I like to think it's possible. If anything to subconciously encourage myself to reach lucidity.

A couple experiences I've had, not with lucid dreaming, but from dreams affecting my waking life:
When I was learning to ride a bicycle as a child, I just couldn't get it. Without the training wheels, I couldn't go more than ten feet. One night I dreamt that I was riding with ease and it was fun. The next morning, I woke up, hopped on the bike, and rode flawlessly.
Another time, in high school, I dreamt that I was studying math. The next day's test was super easy.
I've had similar experiences here or there with playing a piano song, learning to type, etc., but I've never been able to call on this power "on purpose." I believe what you're describing could be a huge untapped benefit of lucid dreaming!

"a little bizarre and crazy" I don't think so.
I was debating this myself just the other day. I was/am wondering if, once you are to the point of creating lucid dreams, it would be possible to use audio (via headphones for example) as a base for teaching yourself while dreaming. In other words, during the lucid dream could you consiously hear and incorperate what is heard into your dream to teach yourself new things. Ie. A new language.

Very interesting. I've been meaning to lucid dream now. I've been doing some research and here is a list of 'mature' possibilities of conscious dreaming.
be your subconscious
make new neural pathways in your brain
have a conversation with yourself as your subconscious
meet your "soul mate"
try to learn a dream language
past life regression
removing negative karma
dissolving attachments (including to lucid dreaming?!??!?, and including to dissolving attachments!!!)
seeking guidance from various teachers
perfecting a skill
healing self/ others
and what I want to do:
meet my higher self and guides
perfect skills and speed learning while asleep
meditation while lucid - apparently 'doing nothing in particular' and just watching the dream helps you anchor yourself in the dream world and it helps a lot in being very aware
