The Voice region lets us communicate with other beings in ordinary and non-ordinary reality. We have many ways of communicating in ordinary reality. Words are one. We also have tones of voice, facial expressions, and body posture. I think the Voice region has a part in all of these. This region works with the mouth, throat, and other areas that send messages, such as hands for texting.
This region is also responsible for communication in non-ordinary reality. One example is sensing when something is staring at you. It also lets us speak with angels and know what is happening to a loved one who is far away. You can use this region to talk to God, but it is not the same as knowing God.

This continues the discussion of the soul I started last time with a description of the Energy region. You can see the first discussion here. It’s from the current draft of my book We All Have Souls and I Think I Can Prove It.
I’ve included an exercise to help you understand the region better. Your thoughts on the description and the exercise will help the book get better.
The Wish region is what we come into the world with. Any agreements we have from the time before we are born or from previous lives are stored here. The wishes we have express who we want to be. The rest of who we are grows out of these wishes. Continue reading and add your comment →
In Lessons of the Inca Shamans Deborah Bryon describes receiving information from the powerful spirits (Apus) of the scared mountains in Peru. The information she received was sent to three of the soul centers that the Inca medicine people think are most important, the Mind, the Heart, and the Belly.
When Deborah came back to her home in Colorado, she still hadn’t processed all of the information. Much of her first book looks at the process of integrating information sent to the Belly and the Heart. Some came out through her writing, but more came out through Deborah’s painting. The Belly found a way to speak through the symbols in the art. You can find out more at her website Lessons of the Inca Shamans and in her two books.
In our Western culture we don’t get much information sent directly to the Belly. We are much more in tune with information that comes through our Voice and is processed in the Mind.
But there are times when the Belly — probably a combination of Will and Desire in my way of looking at the soul — is profoundly affected by something that happens to us. Abuse is one of those events. If the Will can’t process how the abuse affected it, it will not be able to heal.
