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.

Quoting from my book: Freeing Yourself From the Narcissist in your Life:

"The narcissist lives in an intricate world of his making, dominated by inflated illusions self-importance. His/her style is grandiose---like some peacock or wild turkey with feather in full display.... Experiencing himself/herself at the center, like a sun surrounded by encircling planets, the high level narcissist believe that everything flows from him."

"The narcissist fabricates delusions that protect his belief in limitless power. The narcissist holds fast to his bloated self-images..."

"High level narcissists are handsomely rewarded for the very attributes that make them inconsiderate and demanding human beings self-absorption, aggressiveness, hubris."

Don't be intimidated by the self important, self obsessed prince and princess of self importance. Behind these false selves is the empty, hollow real self of the narcissist.

You are the opposite of the high level narcissist. You have access to your original authentic self, a grounded individual capable of love, warmth, conscience, empathy---you are genuine, the real self personified.

Celebrate your authenticity, creative gifts, your profound psychological and spiritual strength and endurance, your fine character.
