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.

Quoting from my book: Freeing Yourself From the Narcissist in Your Life:

"Children develop a sense of right and wrong from their parents. In the beginning, the young child idealizes his mother and father. As he becomes more separate psychologically from them, these idealized parental images are modified and become more realistic. A conscience develops over time as the growing child is able to take greater responsibility for his impulses and actions. The future narcissist never learns that that there are moral and ethical limits to his behavior. His parents treat him/her like an extraordinary being---the most brilliant, creative, talented, handsome, beautiful child ---who is not subject to the rules and restraints placed on others. The parental message is "you are perfect, you can do no wrong---anything goes." 

Narcissists spend their time in acts of exploitation. They are always searching their environments watching to see what they can possess, get, control, cheat, take, steal, undermine. Their cruelties never cease. 

If they are high level narcissists they are tremendously skilled at magnetizing individuals to them whom they use as puppets to fulfill their purposes, professional and personal. They are the ultimate users.

High level narcissists don't worry about the painful, chaotic upheavals they have created, the lives they have upended. The plans delayed and ruined, feelings harmed beyond repair, leaving some with nothing because of their voracious, mortal sin greed which is an abomination. 

You have a reckoning, you see through the glass darkly of delusion, the true nature of the high level narcissist in all of his abomination. High level narcissists never look back. Don't expect them to be punished for their ignominious deeds. 

You have a reckoning, you see through the glass darkly of delusion, the true nature of the high level narcissist in all of his/her ugliness.

You take action and move away from these vipers. You are being directed by the better angels of your nature. Your original self that offers you continuous insights and intuitions as you listen to this inner wisdom
