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.

High level narcissists are obsessively driven to reach the top of their mountains of ambition and achievement, whether the goals are wealth, power, prestige, praise or veneration.

For the high level this is a much easier route since these individuals are very light in the conscience department. The narcissistic personality does not develop a highly developed conscience during his/her formative years. Beneath the surface of the perfect facade you find an absence of adhering to what is right or wrong.  

I have observed that high levels obtain huge ego supplies by planning their route to the upper reaches of success. 

Ultimately the high level narcissist is a predatory exploiter. 

High level narcissists have no difficulty at all abandoning their spouses, children, friends when, according to their plan for success they  must shift and in some instance leave their spouses and children to make their next ascendant step. 

Along the way they have psychologically and emotionally harmed countless individuals, abandoned and pended too many lives, including their children. For the high level this doesn't matter. 

You are the one who has borne and survived the cunning plots and plans of the high level narcissists.

Now you know this high level in full. Understand that you are not and never were to blame for his/her deceits, abandonments, vile projections, insidious acting out behaviors. 

Give yourself tremendous credit for your psychological stamina, clear discernment, personal integrity, your unique creative gifts, compassion and empathy. 

You are on the pathways of recovery, transformation and restoration, deep inner healing.
