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 beginnings of trust occur very early in a child's life. The baby, especially the empath, senses whether he/she can depend on his/her mother or father to feel safe, secure, valued, psychologically grounded.

With a narcissistic mother you treaded lightly, always waiting for her to blow like a bubbling volcano. 

You took on the burden of your parents' core psychological issues and tried to solve their problems so that you could have a real family. You were the fixer and the little child grownup. 

There comes a time of clarity when you recognize that you can no longer play the role of family fixer. 

This is your moment of independence, self care and transformation. 

Keep company with yourself; get to know and appreciate who you are as an individual. This is a time of solitude and resfulness. 

Trust your deep intuition. 

Rest, rest, rest. 

Movement and exercise that works for you.

Listen to restorative beautiful music. Spend time with Nature. 

Good nutrition and hydration.  

Activate and honor your creativity.
