It's said we choose our families: parents, siblings, even the time and place we are born into, because our souls have determined this is where we will learn fastest on our journey of soul growth. On our journey, we face the seven karmic shadows writ into the history of all families. These shadows are: abuse, addiction, violence, poverty, illness, abandonment and betrayal.
