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.

Don't expect others, especially narcissistic personalities to understand you.  They are trapped in denial and delusion. You comprehend and appreciate yourself and your intuitive gifts.

Accept yourself as a rare individual, an irreplaceable pearl of great price. Embrace your differentness.

Follow the truths of your intuition - a perpetual sanctuary lamp. 

You instincts about the true nature of the lies, ruses, baits and confabulations of the narcissistic personality. They are valid; follow them.

Slow your pace. Find your rhythm. Don't let anyone hurry or confound you.

Honor your rest and sleep. If you have trouble sleeping, be kind and let yourself rst. Make no judgments - be a loving presence to the small child inside of you. Listen to music that quiets your nervous system, eases your anxiety and worry, softening your self judgment, infusing you with hope and vitality.

Engage with beauty wherever you find it---in Nature, great Art that speaks to and inspires you.  

Honor your body/mind: gentle yoga poses, basic stretching. 

Listening and telling stories of past remembering. The details and sense of place that you portray take you to another world; you travel through time and space - your reality expands; your old darkness and struggles fade; you are up for the adventure of the story.

Sing to yourself -familiar tunes and melodies appreciate the uniqueness of your voice. No judgments here. You are savoring this moment. 

Or you can chant, whatever is more comfortable and enjoyable to you. Singing activates the vagus nerve and in turn the parasympathetic nervous system. 

Appreciate and honor your uniqueness as a precious individual, an empath.
