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 there are moral and ethical limits (from his parents) 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 exploiting others. They are always searching their environments watching to see what they can possess, get control,

cheat, take, steal. Their cruelties never cease. 

High level narcissists don't worry about the painful, chaotic upheavals they

have created, the lives they have dissembled and upended; the plans delayed and ruined; feelings harmed beyond repair, leaving some with nothing because of their voracious greed. 

You experience an awakening, deep insight into the true nature of the high level narcissist. High levels never look back. Don't expect them to be punished for their ignominious deeds

You are taking action and moving forward along your pathways of the true, authentic, creative self. the center of continuous insights  and intuitions, the center of your inner wisdom.
