Penelope Jean Hayes

Penelope Jean Hayes is a non-fiction author, television contributor, and speaker. She is 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 Do Unto Earth: It’s Not Too Late (Spirituality/Environment series).

Penelope speaks and writes in a relatable and colloquial voice that is often hard to find in the Spirituality/Self-Help genre, helping her to garner a following that clings to her brand of advice and signature style of unpacking metaphysical concepts in layman’s terms.

She is a vegan, an activist for saving our planet and protecting species, and an advocate for compassion towards animals. Penelope has written for HuffPost and Face the Current Magazine, and has appeared as an expert guest on numerous TV programs including Dr. Phil and ABC News. Her podcast show, simply called PENELOPE, is available on iTunes and iHeartRadio, and she regularly joins other radio and podcast shows as a co-host or expert guest.

At a young age, Penelope vowed to discover all that she could about the sciences of the mind, body, and spirit. She developed her own theories and soon discovered that spirituality and science were often saying the same things. She tapped into spiritual wisdom through a process that she now calls “osmotic-energy-balancing,” which is a type of cognizant meditation that allows her to access and channel her stream of Higher-Self consciousness. She then wrote about the emerging phenomenon of catchy creation energy, a philosophy that she began referring to as “viral energy.” Penelope has bounced her ideas off of some of the best doctors of psychology, psychiatry, and quantum physics, formally interviewing them and confirming what she already knew and felt to be true.

Using her own approach, she achieved success in her vocation and she has evolved with her passions to become a media personality, author, and speaker. Penelope is the Founder of The Viral Energy Institute, exploring “Viral Energy” as a field of study called Viralenology.
