Book Collaboration


I met Carole Serene Borgens shortly after I finished writing my first book, The Magic of Viral Energy (MOVE). At the time, my agent, Bill Gladstone, was querying publishers for the book and I was in the waiting time that many authors know all too well. For the sake of affirmation, a friend of a friend of a friend recommended the services of Carole, an intuitive and medium that channeled a spirit energy called “Seth.”

In 2019, I had several long-distance sessions with Carole and Seth, she in British Columbia and me in Florida, the first of which was on the fourth of February. I was initially looking for peace of mind that a publishing deal for MOVE would indeed come, and then I quickly moved on to my many questions about my second title, which focused on building the “viral energy” message from personal and interpersonal goals to global concerns facing humanity and Planet Earth.

In those early months, I had a vague awareness of the “Seth Material” only to the extent that it rung a bell as something that I had heard about before, and so I read one of the many articles available online featuring Jane Roberts, a woman who from 1963 to 1984 channeled a spirit entity known as Seth; I thought it interesting. Yet, it wasn’t until September of 2019 when Carole and I met in person in Vancouver, British Columbia that I learned that the Seth she channeled was the same Seth famously channeled by the late Jane Roberts about whom I had recently read.

Through our talks, Seth and I were getting to know each other, so I explained to him that my second book would focus on reversing our environmental crisis and defining the importance of “viral energy masses”—large energetic fields created by both light and heavy intentions, and the actions of communities and populations, industries, and cultural beliefs, as well as through the activity of massive pockets of love, hate, nature, war, gratitude, abuse, forgiveness, indifference, and compassion.

Seth seemed very interested in this direction.

After MOVE was printed and I had recently begun working on establishing the Viral Energy Institute (VEI), I once again touched base with Carole and Seth and to my profound delight, Seth offered to work with me on VEI material and projects for the healing of Planet Earth. Less than two weeks into our collaboration (a three-way partnership where I asked the questions, Carole channeled, and Seth returned answers of enlightened wisdom), which began on the second of October, 2019, it was clear to me that this work would be shared as a book; the information within would be explored through the VEI platform; and the message would be further distributed to the world’s population through speaking engagements and media channels.

I’d like to share how truly—well—awesome it is to have meaningful conversations and a partnership with an entity of light energy in the Spirit World. Towards the end of writing my first book, I began channeling Higher Self within my writing, and although I have learned to access this higher wisdom, it is not at all lost on me how awe-inspiring and unique this experience is with Seth. As our conversation grew, I noticed that usually I only got answers for the questions I asked: I had to ask the questions and I believe that that’s on-purpose as an expression of our free will, to not be made to know what we don’t seek. So, seek enlightenment. The seeker will get the answers and become the power to change the world.



It appears now that the Spirit Energy, Seth, has been calling me since I was a child in school. How do I know this? When not listening well to the teacher, I spent time doodling in my notebook. My drawing didn’t take the form of stick men or dogs or houses, but rather neat columns filling the page with sideways figure eights—or as I know them now: Infinity signs. The connection is that the infinity sign is Seth’s signature.

Our first meeting came in the early 1990’s when I was studying all things metaphysical, practicing much of it, and hoping to learn “automatic writing.” My attempts were futile for a very long time and I would go on to other things such as past life regression, psychometry, intuitive readings, and the development of psychic abilities. When the automatic writing became a reality, I was kept busy with spirits wanting to communicate. I didn’t know how to focus better and continued trying to help those earthbound entities find their way to the light.

One evening while writing, the form and style changed and it was clear a different energy was with me—he introduced himself as Seth. I asked if he was the Seth—Jane Roberts’ (who channeled him years ago) Seth—and was told “yes.” Needless to say, I was anxious about this and why he found me. It soon became apparent when I was asked if I would agree to channel Seth since Jane Roberts had passed over and Seth had things he wanted to say, to reach out to our world. Jumping up from my chair and attempting to pace the office floor—not easy with three sleeping Irish Wolfhounds filling the carpet—I asked if I could take some time to respond, which I was given. When I prodded further and asked, “Why me?” Seth responded, “You are new at this, you have no bad habits, and you will change none of my words.” Knowing the responsibility of agreeing, it took a week or more until I did, and together we have been writing and channeling for people and books ever since. When we began, Seth told me I was a Spirit Messenger and asked that I take those letters and “find my name within them.” Rearranging the letters revealed the name “Serene” and this is how Spirit addresses me.

Following our initial readings for Penelope Jean Hayes via email, and knowing of her work and intentions for planetary healing, Seth expressed interest in contributing to the Viral Energy Institute movement. Penelope and I met in person shortly after; our rapport was instant, and our work together began. So here we are.
