About The Book


The Magic Of Viral Energy: Spirituality Meets Quantum Theory is not about the law of attraction, and it’s not what’s already been done in the self-help and spirituality genre. In fact, the word “attraction” is not important to The Magic Of Viral Energy, and only appears in the book to explain how “viral energy” is not attraction.

You’ve heard and read a lot about energy, but you haven’t been introduced to the magic of viral energy—until now. So, what is viral energy? Viral energy is the contagious nature of light and heavy energy in social interaction and the environment around you. What’s more, you pick it up through osmosis—not attraction—because you, my dear, have a permeable energy field. You are holy!

You don’t attract “good” or “bad” vibes or good or bad experiences due to how you are feeling at the moment. Gosh, where would that leave you when you’re having a crappy day, or sad over some grievous loss? You would likely agree, that would be rather unfair of God to set it up that way. Nope, your power of creation—the fuel for how you create your experiences—lives in your energetic presence and where your presence moves and creates within the “7 Consciousness-Energy Strata.” You can only experience, be and have what you are on energetic level with. Want to know about the 7 strata that determine your energetic presence? Well, you have to read the book!

This book takes you on a journey to understanding “viral energy” through the true stories of people from every walk of life, plus a splash of popular culture references including from movies, television, celebrities, and social media. Author Penelope Jean Hayes is an intuitive spiritual teacher who speaks and writes in a relatable voice—a colloquial voice that, frankly, is hard to find in the genre. She is a seasoned television and radio personality with a following that clings to her brand of advice and signature style of unpacking technical concepts in layman’s terms.

The Magic Of Viral Energy is about contagious energy and how to make this phenomenon work in your favor to supercharge your happiness, relationships, health, passions, and abundance. It will change the way that you interact with others, improve how they respond to you, and give you the power to—at last—fulfill your dreams. Part prescriptive personal growth, part spirituality, and part quantum physics theory, its message leaves you transformed and empowered with new and intrepid tools to achieve your purpose, optimize your health, have true love relationships, and live a life of magic!



A Fresh Approach To The Self-Help & Spirituality Genre

The Magic Of Viral Energy gives you something new and different to what you’ve read in other self-help books. This book merges theoretical science and quantum theory with spirituality to answer both your infinitely large questions about the universe and the nature of God, and your everyday questions about finding true love and happiness. Do you want to know why time only moves forward? It’s in the book. Do you want to know why the universe is expanding and not stagnating or shrinking? It’s in the book. Do you want to know how to expand your resources, opportunities, and experiences? It’s in the book!

The Magic Of Viral Energy is the magic beyond magnetism and it gives you the tools to create a life of providence and ultimate fulfillment!

About The Author

Penelope Jean Hayes is a public personality, and according to the Internet Movie Datatbase (IMDb) her “starmeter” is on the rise. She has been named by RANKER (a service based on Google and Wikipedia) as #24 IN THE WORLD OF “FAMOUS PEOPLE NAMED PENELOPE.”

She is a widely-known Popular Culture Analyst who has appeared on the Dr. Phil Show as an expert guest, was the Host of her own TV segment called Pop News With Penelope (5-years running) on an ABC News affiliate, and is frequently called upon by national morning television programs, radio shows, and magazines for her expert input on issues related to social challenges, relationship tips, depression, and the pressures brought to bear by a society that idolizes celebrity and promotes a culture of perfectionism.

Her career first took off as a publicist to celebrities. Incidentally, she is also named by RANKER as #4 IN THE WORLD OF “FAMOUS PR SPECIALISTS,” alive or deceased. Her growing platform and expertise says a great deal about this author’s ability to promote her own books, her connections with top media sources, and her exceptionally strong on-camera and public speaking experience.

Penelope Jean Hayes has an important message to share. She was a runaway at 15-years-old, then in her twenties she was the victim of domestic violence and ultimately ended up spending the better part of a month in a hospital psychiatric ward recovering from post-traumatic stress and years of functional depression. After she was committed, she committed to discovering all that she could about self-help and the sciences of the mind, body, and spirit.

She developed her own theories and soon this led her to quantum mechanics. She fell in love with the wisdom in quantum and theoretical physics, and she wondered if spirituality and science were really saying the same things. She began talking to people, hearing the stories of others, and testing the phenomenon that was emerging, a philosophy that she starting referring to as “Viral Energy.” Then, she bounced her ideas off of the best doctors of psychology and psychiatry and quantum physics—formally interviewing them and confirming what she knew to be true because she felt it for herself. Penelope became a seeker of happiness, she wrote about what worked for her, and soon she changed everything, starting with the very meaning of her life. She became successful in her career in public relations and then evolved with her passions to become a speaker, media personality, and writer.

Today, dozens of her journalism pieces have appeared in publications including The Huffington Post (a late 2017 article written by Penelope on the crisis in Puerto Rico went viral and was republished in numerous national magazines and mentioned on national news broadcasts), plus she has earned special access to report on the U.S. Military and the North American Aerospace Defense (NORAD) Command. Her narrative non-fiction stories have been featured on covers for leisure magazines such as Life On The Water and Heartland Boating.

Penelope Jean Hayes has a large followers on Twitter (@PenelopeJean) where she regularly shares “Viral Energy Sparks.” Penelope is a vegan; animal compassion advocate; and was honored to spend several days alongside her role model—famous primatologist and UN Messenger of Peace, Dr. Jane Goodall. Penelope and her husband, Burton, have lived in Nashville, Tennessee and Charleston, South Carolina, and they currently reside on the Emerald Coast of the Florida Gulf.

All Is Viral Energy In Love And War

Book Two: All Is Viral Energy In Love And War explains “viral energy masses” or energetic tumors in our society created by the actions and intentions of communities, industries, cultural beliefs, fields of nature, and through massive pockets of love, hate, war, abuse, indifference, and compassion. This book sets forth a clear vision of where humanity’s spiritual evolution is going and how we can evolve.

While Book One, The Magic Of Viral Energy, deals with how you can utilize the knowledge of viral energy for a life of purpose and happiness, Book Two, opens up broader issues facing humanity that directly affect you and where we are heading as a species.


7 Strata To Enlightenment: Heaven On Earth Through Viral Energy 

Book Three: 7 Strata To Enlightenment dives deep into the ‘7 Consciousness-Energy Strata,’ which in ascending order are: Hell, Ignorance, Indifference, Wanting, Awareness, Creation, and Heaven. Your presence of light energy lives in one of these stratum. In your strata is your power to manifest, and the fuel for all that you create.


Progressive Research Of Viral Energy (P.R.O.V.E)
