Publisher's Summary

Have you grown up in a home where at least one of your parents were addicted to alcohol or some other substance?

Have you noticed that many of the emotions that impacted you as a child are still affecting you today?

Shame is one of the leading emotions that stem from growing up in a dysfunctional house hold. Feelings of shame are usually experienced in the form of self-hatred. One who feels shame can see the world as a place of suffering and loneliness - but you have the ability to set these hurtful feelings free!

In this audiobook, you'll discover a proven method that'll guide you on how to let go of these painful emotions. At the end of this book is my gently guided "letting go of shame" meditation.

The Blue Rainbow series is a collection of purposely short teachings and complimentary corresponding meditations. They have been created to convey single-focused topics. These topics teach and guide you on how you can let go of negative painful emotions.

An instructive guide to date.

Nope, not one of my parents engage in alcohol. However, I know many of my friends’ parents who do and I would want to help them out with the aid of this instructive audiobook. I have been a witness to several instances wherein shame and hatred were often seen in them. This led me to sought answers and so far, I’ve gotten what I need from this.

Amazing book!

Any additional comments?

I really didn't know that growing up from this kind of environemnt will greatly affect how I live in the present. I was really not aware at first how this is sabotaging my life. Now, I choose to claim my life back by addressing the need to let go of this negative emotion of shame. I am very much grateful to Barb for her guidance and love through this amazing book.
