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.

Empaths are unique individuals; they are highly attuned to the feelings of others, particularly their partners and spouses. I frequently hear from empaths who report that they are treated with disdain, intimidation, blatant lies, transgressions, humiliations by their spouses.

Empaths and narcissists are on opposite sides of the characterlogical divide: 

Empaths married to narcissists are driven to physical and emotional exhaustion, chronic insomnia, anxiety and depression.

You have been under horrible duress on the receiving end of the narcissist's outrageous cruelties for many years and decades. 

This is your time of awakening, a decision to separate from the narcissistic personality and reclaim your resilient, grounded, creative authentic self!

Practice daily self care: Get sleep, rest. Do restorative diaphragmatic breathing. Listen to music that is beautiful and meaningful. Do movement and exercise that works for you: gentle yoga poses, quiet walking, stationary bike, gentle chi gong. 

Spend time with Nature. Activate your creativity. Talk with individuals whom you trust.

Honor yourself as a strong, intuitive, gifted, grounded, creative empath.
