The Narcissist in Your Life Podcast is hosted by Linda Martinez-Lewi, Ph.D., clinical expert on the narcissistic personality, psychotherapist and author. I offer in-depth analysis, strategies and practices for those psychologically and emotionally harmed and abused by toxic, predatory narcissistic personalities through my books: Recovering and Healing After the Narcissist and Freeing Yourself from the Narcissist in Your Life, international telephone consultations and global podcasts. I put the emphasis on helping individuals to access the calming, restorative parts of the parasympathetic body/mind systems that lead to healing, recovery, personal transformation and the evolution of your true, authentic self and your unique creative gifts.

The external image of the narcissist is the polar opposite of his/her internal world. On the outside the classic narcissist is frequently physically attractive, highly self confident, overflowing with charm. 

The narcissistic view of life has no limits. They inspire awe in most people if they are high level narcissists who have mastered control and manipulation of others. 

Beneath the glittery, irresistible surface, the inner world of the narcissist is empty, bleak and dark. There is an inert quality to the inner narcissist. They have no insight and believe their finely spun delusions. 

Deep in the unconscious the narcissist is fraudulent, empty, rudderless.

Know that this is a fixed, rigid personality disorder that does not change.

The narcissist lives in a psychological darkness that pulls others down into its depths. He is unconcerned since the narcissist is out of touch with himself. It is those around him who are devastated by his demands, hatreds, crimes of the heart.

Are there enough material rewards to cover up the stench of his vile deeds and deceits. Listen and you will hear the voice of your intuition rising, speaking to you, saying: "Get out now. Leave. Don't stay or you will be trapped and lose yourself."

Know that you can leave this dark place, that you don't belong there. Like our prehistoric ancestors who carried the miracle of fire from place to place, you have opened the warmth and light that has been waiting to manifest. This is your light, the re-emergence of your authentic self.
