About the Viral Energy Philosophy of Personal Development and Fulfillment

Viral-en-ology is a study and philosophy based on the wisdom that all energy is contagious. Understanding how energy works will help you create better outcomes in your life, and therefore greater happiness. 

Whether you know it or not, there are 7 levels on which you create everything in your life, including your successes, disappointments, happiness, stress, fears, and big wonderful dreams. They all exist and the question is—do you have access to what you really want to be, do, and have. 

This is understood when you learn about the viral energy philosophy and the seven levels of consciousness energy from which you create everything you experience. 

The proprietary viral energy methods are infused in the courses, meditations, mentoring, private and group events and retreats, and online experiences.

Testimonials for our Philosophy & Process

Here's what the experts are saying...

“It’s really an interesting concept—these infectious agents that you’re calling them. Maybe you’re a person who doesn’t have enough ‘Teflon’ (emotional armor), so things stick to you. Turn off media and social media at a certain point. I think social media can make it hard to have ‘Teflon’ these days because sometimes you can be constantly reminded of what is negative. I think there’s something to it, it’s like you get this virus, you get this infectious agent.”

Dr. Stephen Hinshaw, Ph.D., Chair of the Department of Psychology, University of California, Berkeley; Vice-Chair of Psychology, Department of Psychiatry, University of California, San Francisco; Editor, Psychological Bulletin; author of The Triple Bind: Saving Our Teenage Girls from Today’s Pressures

“It’s really interesting. We’re social creatures and we do give off energy and vibes. An event or influence can have a small effect and start to work on you in a positive or negative way. You probably don’t realize that you are starting to think differently, so it really is like you’re catching a silent factor that you might not be aware of.”

Dr. Gerald J. Haeffel, Department of Psychology, University of Notre Dame
