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.

There are a growing number of "spiritual teachers" who are narcissists. They are among the most magnetic and charismatic of individuals.

We are in a time of many uncertainties, a kind of roller coaster ride. Many are seeking a sense of peace and groundedness. 

Coming to the rescue are "narcissistic gurus" who have all the answers.  Charismatic, charming, excellent communicators and story tellers, these individual are offering courses that promise to reshape  your life, to calm you down, even to make you rich. Many of these "spiritual teachers" are covert narcissists who convincingly pretend to be humble and unmaterialistic. . 

Narcissistic gurus often come with fine academic credentials. Others call themselves holistic healers and medical intuitives.  

Often attractive physically with excellent communications skills, they can captivate any audience within a short period of time. Many spiritual gurus travel the world, peddling their packages which cost thousands of dollars. The goal is enlightenment---the expensive way. 

There are extravagent seminars to exotic, exciting locations with different levels of membership. The more you pay, the greater the access to the "guru" which could mean a seat at his/her inner  golden circle. 

Narcissistic spiritual gurus are confidence men and women. They don't give a damn about your psychological or spiritual welfare. They live only for themselves, their godlike images and the fruits of their labors---becoming more wealthy and controlling the minds, emotional and psyches of others. 

There is a time of insight and awakening to the true nature of these narcissistic spiritual gurus who lack conscience and integrity.

This is the time to put the emphasis on your self healing and restoration: Get the rest and sleep that you deserve; healthy pure food, good hydration, spend time with Nature, the great healer, access your many creative gifts, grow in wisdom with you intuition.
