When sending funds (Ether) from my main wallet, I entered my own address and sent them to myself. This created a contract with my funds. Is there any way to recover the funds? Thanks. enter image description here

I'm sorry to say that your ether is gone.

If I'm not mistaken, this is the transaction: https://etherscan.io/tx/0x60a19be9e395189a09a02ac74aefba0748b49c21eec3691ffa970b7880ed6976.

It doesn't look like you sent ether to yourself; you sent it to address 0. Transactions sent to address 0 create smart contracts. Since you didn't provide any code (because you weren't actually trying to create a smart contract), the smart contract can't do anything, so it's going to exist like this forever with that ether locked inside.

Here's a link to the smart contract you created: https://etherscan.io/address/0x514d9d1c7d86bff4ccab4fb7eba8783f3bf4b0aa. Note that its code is empty.
