The Problem with Lucid Dreaming
In Lucid Dreaming the Conscious Mind remains actively awake so that it can observe the workings of the SubConscious Mind. The danger in this is that the Conscious Mind can override the SubConscious and / or misinterpret the symbolic language the SubConscious Minds uses as its communication. (This is why Astral travelers often attach a silver cord to their astral bodies. It is the Conscious Mind maintaining a connection to the physical self for fear of losing its identity.)
Lucid Dreaming, like most Spiritual lessons, is not a thing to hold onto. It is to be experienced and let go of so that the newly discovered SubConscious Mind may continue its work unhindered by the limited scope of understanding which characterizes the Conscious Mind.
