What your describing sounds entirely normal, don't let anybody freak you out. As human beings, our brains are each individually chemically different.
Some people have very vivid dreams, others dream occasionally. What I've heard is the more you get used to the concept of lucid dreaming, the more
frequent they appear.
I've always had very lucid dreams, similar to what you are describing. My dreams have progressed over time, becoming increasingly real. I remember
the first time I dreamt in color, with sound, taste, touch; each time laying into what effectively became a full sensory dream.
I've always loved sleeping, it's when I really get to think. As I lay in bed, I usually think about a script I'm writing or project I'm working on
and by the time I'm asleep I find that I'm already dreaming about something related to what I was thinking about at the time of sleep. It's an
interesting form of brainstorming that I've developed and it has worked quite well for me. If you are able to control your dreams, then use them
Lastly, if you want to "turn off" your dreams, try (one) the following:
Brewing a cup of catnip tea before bed. Fresh cut catnip; usually found at health-food stores).
"To make yourself a truly effective nightcap, simply bring 1-1/2 cups of water to a boil. Remove from heat and add 1 tsp. of preferably the fresh cut
herb or else 1 tsp. of the dried material and let steep for about 20 minutes until lukewarm before drinking. Honey may be added if desired. An Old
Amish Herbs remedy called Night Nip works pretty well, too, for insomnia. Three capsules before retiring is suggested. The tea is also very good for
reducing fevers, the miseries of hay fever, and nausea. A small cup of warm catnip tea sweetened with honey is good for calming hyperactive kids."
Purchase or make your own Kava Kava tincture and mix a few drops with a glass of water before bed.
Hope that helped!
