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.

The high level predatory narcissist is often found at the upper echelons of power in private and public sectors. To most people they are unrecognizable in this role. These individuals are beyond clever and cunning. They are masters of image, disguise, theatre, seduction. Many attend the finest universities, have the highest credentials in many professional fields. They are exalted in our current society by many, bestowed honors and awards for their important work and looked up to as role models by their peers, followers and friends.

High level narcissistic predators are a special breed. They have climbed and succeeded to the pinnacle of their professions. Almost everyone is fooled by them. Their main focus is in wielding power and manipulating others with great skill through clandestine means. There are no limits to their ambitions. They place themselves strategically to achieve the maximum influence over others whom they view as pawns in their dirty games. 

They learned the art of sizing up people early, have mastered all of the social skills and ways of flattering people into falling for them. They act like team players but behind the scenes they use associates to plot against those who would block their path. They spread lies, create ugly scenarios, defame and plot against those who get in their way. 

The truth comes from those who have shared their private lives with these individuals. It is exhausting and difficult. Partners and spouses finally discover that they can no longer tolerate the abuse and suspect that there is too much immoral and unethical behavior. They must sever these toxic relationships to save themselves and their children. Divorces from these high level predatory narcissists are ugly to the max. 

Those who go forward are relieved and finally free of the psychological imprisonment, secrecy and extreme oxidative stress that they have endured for decades. 

Protect yourself from these highly destructive individuals who have a fixed personality disorder that is not inclined to change. 

Put the emphasis on yourself. Practice self care each day - get the rest and sleep that you deserve, eat high quality nourishing food, organic if possible, good hydration, movement and exercise your way, a form of meditation as you understand this, spend time with Nature the great healer and restorer, reawaken your unique creative gifts.
