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.

You are the child who was never understood. You are a highly sensitive individual who perceives inner and outer reality on the most minute levels. 

You remember from childhood often feeling overwhelmed. Loud noises and crowds were very distressing. While other famiy members were excited by social events, you had a very difficult time being in groups. You found many of the children to be aggressive and loud. 

Some empaths as children find meaning and comfort in solitude, in their own company. They spend hours reading books, walking in Nature, writing in a journal, sketching and drawing. 

As a very small child you picked up the psychological and emotional aspects of others. You read their unconscious and knew what was hidden behind the mask of the face.

Growing up in a narcissistic family is particularly for the empath.

From the beginning you didn't fit into your narcissistic family. It was like you came from another world and wondered how yu ended up with this group of people.

Empaths never fit in to the society at large. This is particularly true currently. There are so many narcissistic personalities who are thriving in our aggressive culture. 

You come to a time of awakening, a deep appreciation of yoru true nature. 

You cannot compromise the pure gold of your authentic self. 

Your creative gifts expand and deepen. You find yourself creating whole worlds out of your imagination and intuition. You are different and precious---the pearl of grea price, the true authentic self. 

Be kind and protective of yourself with: good sleep, rest, movement/exercise, spending time in Nature, nourishment, lovely music, following the unique pathway of your creativity in all of its forms.
