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.

At times the earth feels unsteady beneath our psychological feet. We experience uncertainties, even fears and trepidations that haunt us in wakefulness and sleep. 

In seasons of confusion and uncertainty it is particularly helpful to view ourselves with both objectivity and compassion. These are some of the steps that yu can take to bring emotional and psychophysiological balance to your days. 

Do movement and exercise that boosts your immune system, raises your mood, lowers your anxiety and helps you sleep. 

Perform simple yoga poses like child's pose that gently stretches your muscles, calms your nervous system and puts you in the restorative parasympathetic mode.

Activate your vagus nerve through diaphragmatic breathing.

Listen to your dreams. They are revealing invaluable messages. When you awaken from a dream, take a few minutes to digest before you get up. Remember, dreams are a connection between your conscious and unconscious mind.
