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 narcissist's genuine emotions were blocked long ago. They have no real warmth, empathy or compassion; they are without mercy. 

Everything is viewed by the narcissist through the narrow prism of his delusional world that ws created and expanded since early childhood. 

The real self of the narcissist is highly regressed at the age of two or younger. Within this psychic structure is a bleak, hollow emptiness of the psychologically damaged real self. 

The false self is bolstered by powerful defense mechanisms: denial, projection, repression, splitting.

Recognizing that you are married to or are a child of a narcissistic parent is a moment of great truth. 

Practice self acceptance and self compassion. Develop strong psychological boundaries. Appreciate your true nature, your authenticity, creativity and integrity.
