"MOTHER OF MY SOUL" - an invocation poem about god that acknowledges and calls forth the presence of your higher-power from Kyli Santiago's second poetry book "An Inspired Poet." Did you know that you can actually call forth your soul? That’s right it’s easy to do because your soul is your higher-self or your inner-self and it’s always right there with you. It’s just up to you to acknowledge the higher power in your life and it will reveal itself to you. Whether you see a vision, have a dream, hear a word, or are just inspired by some new idea – just pay attention and you will begin to see your soul at work in your life! However, like any other important relationship in your life, you must nurture a relationship with your higher-self. The more time you spend alone in meditation or just sitting in silence, the more you will see proof of your soul’s infinite presence and power. “Mother of My Soul” is a poem about god that provides a good starting ground to begin a soul relationship with god, by helping you to take the first step of summoning your inner-power to the surface. Keep in mind – you can call your soul whatever you wish – Father, Higher-Self, Mother or Father-God, Ralph … you do not have to call it Mother.
