What if everything in your life could be boiled down to one simple question: Am I operating from a place of fear? Or love? Today, we go deeper into our conversation with life coach and spiritual teacher, Glenn Ambrose. He tells us about how he “woke up” to spirituality 15 years ago, and how everything looked differently after a good night’s sleep. Glenn explains why our perception dictates our reality and why darkness doesn’t really exist. According to Glenn, the Universe wants us to change, grow and expand. Lastly, we discuss forgiveness: how to practice it and redefine it. In the words of Glenn, “all work is self work.” You will be inspired to work on yourself after listening to this special episode!
