A lucid dream begins at the moment you become aware that you are dreaming, and fully conscious of the experience even though your body is sound asleep. In lucid, as well as in semi-lucid dreams, the Holy Spirit may choose to speak personally with our soul. In her intimate autobiographical account, Maria Isabel Pita shares how she was led home to Christ through lucid dreaming as a spiritual practice.
Born into Catholicism in Havana, Cuba, Maria's family fled into exile after the communist revolution, and she grew up in Fairfax, Virginia. As an adult, Maria came to lead a secular life, concentrating primarily on her growth as a writer. The author of several successful novels, the happily married Maria never expected God to personally enter her life. Then she began experiencing lucid dreams. At first, she called them "flying dreams" because flying felt fantastic, and she could think of no better way to make use of them. But as her skill and control as a lucid dreamer improved, a pure and overwhelming Love introduced itself into her life in the form of a mysteriously wonderful Man who began appearing regularly in her dreams, and who she came to think of as her "Guardian Lord".
This compelling account charts Maria's journey through the extraordinary experiences she recorded, and the insight and direction she drew from them as, dream by dream, her soul was guided along a path in keeping with Christian mystical tradition.
What made the experience of listening to Lucid Dreams and the Holy Spirit the most enjoyable?
A short look into the devotional life of a Christian Mystic. Lucid Dreaming as a spiritual path and experience the progress thru a series of dreams. The audiobook is lively, informal yet poetic.

Lucid Dreams and the Holy Spirit was a very interesting listen. I've listened to a few audiobooks on this subject but I don't think any of them related back to spirituality in a certain sense. Perhaps shamanism but not so much Catholicism. I believe one can be Catholic or any religion and also be spiritual/mystic at the same time. Some say you can't have both but I say why not. I liked this audiobook based on that. I think lucid dreaming has everything to do with spirituality. I found Maria's dreams to be fascinating. I liked when she met the angel Hareem.
I've read a few of the audiobooks she mentioned, When the Church Was Young and My Life With the Saints. Both very good. Overall, this was a neat listen and I hope she writes more on this subject.
I loved that Maria Isabel Pita narrated her own book. She has a wonderful soft voice that was easy to listen to. She spoke very eloquently and made this an enjoyable experience.
I was gifted this audiobook for my honest, unbiased review.
