it is perfectly acceptable to change scales or modes,within a key ( this is called modal modulation).for example,the E minor scale also contains the F# diminished scale,the G major scale, and so on. in fact the E minor is the 6th degree of the G major ionian scale as well.so as you can see there is a multitude of possibilites that stem from any one of the seven modes of the G ionian.it is also a fairly commonly used device to switch keys in the course of a song, it can lend a great tension and release feel to the climax of a song. i'd recommend some theory lessons. theory can be a HUGE asset in your songwriting and will make you much better on the whole as a musician.
