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.

Childhood trauma is a deep and chronic wounding of the self. It blunts psychological growth, personal creativity and the capacity to trust oneself and another human being. Trauma is psychologically destabilizing, physically weakening and emotionally distressing. 

When trauma become chronic, the child lives in a painful state of hyper vigilance, free-floating anxiety and the incapacity to trust himself and others. 

Unprocessed trauma is revealed in the accumulation of oxidative stress that causes imbalances in the systems of the body: endocrine, digestive, circulatory, nervous, muscular, immune. 

The child raised in a narcissistic family with narcissistic parents return to this toxic environment that created his greatest suffering by marrying a narcissistic personality.

Living with a narcissistic spouse is a horrendous nightmare.

You come to an awakening that you will move forward. 

You deserve tremendous credit for choosing freedom, solitude, creativity, deep inner peace built on your authentic self.
