In today’s episode, we discuss the courage to be an original, what stops us from being fully authentic, and how we can tap into our true gifts and talents and be the best version of ourselves.

Penelope Jean Hayes is the founder of the Viral Energy Institute for personal, interpersonal, and planetary well-being. The Viral Energy Institute is dedicated to research, study, and education in a new field of study called Viralenology, which merges traditional science and metaphysical philosophy with a mission to spread higher consciousness virally around the world.

The institute began teaching in-person courses and offer mentoring and retreats in 2010, and their platform for online courses was launched in 2020. While courses and retreats take place in many locations of high energy and tranquility, the institute is located in Naples, Florida, on nearly two acres of lush tropical grounds with meditation spaces ideal for a zen immersion experience.

Penelope is a television contributor, speaker, and the author of the books The Magic of Viral Energy: An Ancient Key to Happiness, Empowerment, and Purpose (Mind, Body, & Spirit/Self Help); The Likely Future (two-volumes of spiritual advice on the coronavirus pandemic); and the bestseller Do Unto Earth: It’s Not Too Late (Spirituality/Environmental Repair). Penelope’s latest book, titled Where Your Dreams Live: Mastering the 7 Levels of Consciousness From Which You Create Your Experiences, is set for a Winter 2021 release.

She hosts a podcast show about contagious and viral energy simply called PENELOPE available on iTunes and iHeartRadio, plus is co-host of the hot new podcast, Spiritual Yada.

Penelope speaks and writes in a relatable and colloquial voice helping her to garner a following that clings to her brand of advice and signature style of unpacking energetical and metaphysical concepts in layman’s terms and through story. At the heart of her work, she teaches how to elevate into Higher-Self Consciousness through a process that she calls “osmotic-energy-balancing,” which is a type of cognizant meditation.

Penelope is a vegan, an activist for saving our planet and protecting species, and an advocate for compassion towards animals.


About Carole:

Carole Serene Borgens has the gift of communicating directly with the Spirit Messenger Pax— channeling Pax Wisdom for the world while benefiting her own inner peace and balance in a world of uncertainty.

Through automatic writing, Carole Serene and Pax have brought wisdom and guidance to people around the world since the early 1990s. It was at this time Pax came through in automatic writing and asked Carole Serene if she would consent to be his channel.

His wish was to speak to the world, offering guidance on repair of Planet Earth and offering solutions contributing to cleaning air and water and living in harmony with nature. The intention was to put these writings into book form thereby helping Earth’s people to find their way to wellness.

Their current writings form the books The Likely Future: Short and Long Term Guidance From the Source, a COVID-19 exposé, and Do Unto Earth: It’s Not Too Late, offering solutions for repairing our damage to Planet Earth and alternatives for fossil fuels, plastics, and offering fuel sources for off-planet travel and much more.

As a spiritual being having a human experience, Carole Serene’s journey has taken her to and through many life adventures. The need to experience as much variety of life as possible, once thought to be a short attention span, has resulted in a range of careers from nursing to sales management; hospitality industry bartender; fitness club, yacht club, and real-estate sales; legal assistant; financial marketing and community relations; hotel promotions; professional show-dog handler, and more.

Her wide range of interests has included breeding and showing purebred dogs; racing British sports cars; restoration of old wooden boats, including the 104’ tugboat she owned and lived aboard for 9 years; competing in Concours de Elegance events with classic British cars; organizing car events for clubs, and representing her region as Director of an International British car organization.

Above all, Carole Serene knows that her relationship with the Spirit Messenger Pax is the greatest blessing in her life.
