To the OP
Welcome to the lucid dreaming club!
This is the beggining of a journey for you, I myself fully embarked on this journey about 2 years ago. You will find that you will have more and more
lucid dreams and you will start to have more "psychic" and "paranormal" experiences occur in your life.
I see this as a perfectly natural journey to be on and you should feel priviledged that you are able to progress in this way. IMO this is like a
"sign-post" or a "land-mark", that is being given to you, your spirit and soul are growing and you are gaining a new spiritual insight.
I think (as a few have already stated) that when you go to sleep and "dream" your spirit is infact leaving your body and going to other
planes/dimensions of existance, I think the term the "astral" plane gets over used a bit, I have only ever travelled there knowingly once, I had the
sensation of rubber being pulled over my skin and going through an "onion-skin" layer as it were, then I can only describe a euphoria and visual
feast that I can liken to something (it'd be a breach of the T&C) which produces similar effects. What happened there was that my brain created a
natural and huge '___' surge.
I am a regular lucid dreamer, aswell as being clair-audient and clair-sentient, I will lucid dream nightly. I see the lucid dreams as an opportunity
to gain a valuable insight into your own subconscious psyche, you can learn a lot about yourself and in turn change some of the negative things about
yourself, you are able to grow more and more spiritually and will have an awareness that you hadn't had before. There are two types of lucid dream
that I have now, the first is where I am given a lesson and I have to figure out the "moral" of the story, the second is where I travel to other
planes of existance and meet with many different people, some human and some not, I do not have fear in my lucid dreams as one of my early lessons was
to let go of fear, as fear will manifest.
I have complete control during my lucid dreams, it will take time for you to build up a "reportoire" of skills that you can use in your lucid
dreams, this for me includes flying (at 1st you can only fly slow and fairly low), pausing, rewinding and fast forwarding time in the lucid dreams,
teleporting from one location to another, turning myself invisible, being able to pass through solif objects (this is the easiest IMO), creating
energy/psi pulses, changing content in my lucid dreams... for example if there is a car and it's not a very nice one I can change that into a nice
one, lol... I can also start the cars by just thinking about it.
One thing I would like to add is, treat the "characters" in your lucid dreams with respect and dignity, because they may be "characters" that are
aspects of your subconsciouss... in which case you are only harming yourself and repressing aspects of your subconsciouss which want to manifest, or
in other cases they are ACTUAL entities on other planes/dimensions of existance and to show them a lack of curtiousy, respect etc will in effect
demote you to the lower planes of existance, lower your spirits vibration and then you will find yourself in the lowest of realms where the
inhabbitants won't show you any respect or dignity and in many cases delight in torturing you.
I hope all of this helps.
A fellow Lucid Dreamer.
