For as long as I can remember, no matter what I did and tried to hide some actions from my mom, she'd usually confront me and she was right. Busted again! But how did she do it? I really wondered if she had eyes behind her head as she would tell me.
Was my mom psychic or just highly intuitive?
People always talk about 'women's intuition', the sixth sense the women have over the men. Men are intuitive, too. Everyone is, but not everyone is psychic.
Intuition is the special voice or reason within ourselves. Most do not pay attention to 'the voice' when it speaks. We often suppress or deny 'it' know more than 'we' think we know.
Intuition is our ability to just understand or know without having to analyze or dig deep in our minds to comprehend or seek an answer. It's just there. And, it is different for everyone.
Imagine driving to the market and that voice inside suggests an alternative route. You don't listen, continuing on the usual path only to find there is a traffic jam due to an accident.
Most of us do not trust the inner voice, which we all intuition. I call it God, intuition, higher self, the voice of reason, and the sound of love. As we grow and ascend to our higher selves and heal from the clutter of pain and obstacles from our daily living, as in meditation, we begin to hear ‘the voice’. Once we follow it, and it is not causing harm to another or ourselves, we
Find our purpose and progress more in alignment with the universal flow for our unique journey.
Intuition is that knowing part of ourselves if we listen. Does it always prove positive or correct?
No. As human beings we have choices, opportunities, self-will, spiritual and emotional experiences and the soul’s yearning for what I best for us. By following our intuition, we will more than likely find greater peace and happiness with less struggle. We find ourselves on path and doors opening we might not have encountered had we not trusted the inner guide.
Prayer is talking to God, meditation is listening to God. There is a very old statement that says, “Be Still, For I am, God.”
So, we still ourselves, even while at work, tending to our families, partners, pets, paying bills, dealing with problems and who has been guiding people spiritually for 3 decades, I can attest that women’s intuition is just as strong as a man’s but in my work, it appears women seem to depend and trust their inner voice more for their emotional and spiritual growth and guidance; the men seem to use it more for work, relationship and their cognitive abilities.
Women have always been told they have their intuition. We do. And the more we listen,
the healthier we are and stronger we become by trusting ourselves. When we people-please or try to overcome abuse, the voice can be diluted and not honored. The more we trust
our inner voice, the leadership it provides, the more fulfilled we will be in all aspects of our current lives. I often hear people tell me they are intuitive while speaking to me, a psychic. This is where I explain to everyone, often bursting their bubble, that we are all intuitive but not everyone Is psychic. Yes, there is a very big difference.
I was intuitive all my life. I was not psychic until, on February 17, 1981, I was in a commercial airplane crash. This is the first of my 3 near-death experiences. This was pre-internet and no one to talk to about what had happened to me that day. The doctors I saw could not explain
what I explained. My therapist t at the time, when I said I thought God has put me on that plane, leaned forward in his chair and asked, “God?! What did God have to do with it?”
Everything. I knew it was everything spiritual. He offered me medication. I did not take it.
I became psychic the day of the plane crash. Voices I had never heard, different from the
intuition, gut voice I had known all my live, that inner voice. It was then I began hearing and
seeing signs of the universe I never knew before. I began saying things to friends and events came true. That was the beginning of my predicting which ultimately lead to my psychic and metaphysical career on radio and private practice.
I learned I was clairvoyant, the ability to see, clairaudient, the ability to hear and clairsentient,
the ability to feel; I saw events, heard messages from spirit and felt another’s emotions which is not just empathy.
Women have keen intuition, absolutely but we are not to confuse it with psychic and metaphysical gifts. I learned the hard way, the very hard way, having had three near death experiences coupled with surgeries that elevated my levels of psychic and healing abilities, ultimately give me the gift to channel loved one from the other side.
So, no, women’s intuition is not the same as having psychic abilities but it is an extraordinary gift when utilized for the purpose of one’s highest good. The more we trust our intuition and stay in the moment, the more at peace we are and the path we walk unfolds as it is meant to as mentioned above. Intuition is wonderful tool to use with something as simple as choosing a meal to the complexities of a relationship. The voices in our head are many. We hear family members, friends, online influencers, broadcasters, loved ones, teachers, etc. We need to isolate those voice from ‘the’ voice to hear and understand intuition for the message and guidance for ourselves. The noisier the inner ‘committee’ of our mind, the less able we are to follow our intuition. It is during this time that we can hear the internal subtle messages of our true and sacred self, giving free advice and guidance from within for our unique soul journey.
Our truth is within. Our actions may or may not lead us to our optimal potential; it depends on our awareness, trust and implementation to follow the advice of the intuitive self over and beyond the aspects of our psychic. Intuition is not psychic abilities. People confuse the two. Everyone has intuition, just various levels and depths. Not everyone is psychic which includes clairvoyance, clairaudience and clairsentient abilities. Having visions, precognitive images, hearing messages from beyond or feeling other people’s emotions is not intuition. That goes back to psychic, empathic or metaphysical energies.
Over the past several years, one of the new catchwords has been ‘mindfulness’. What does it mean? To a psychiatrist helping an unhappy, distressed or depressed person, it may lean meaning toward a certain thought processes for mood disorders. To a new age or progressive person, it may be a more contemporary way of applying an ancient Buddhist practice to be present and into the moment.
We often doubt what we feel or hear within the chambers of our body, the temple to our soul. We are our own guiding light and our own worst enemy. Jealous, angry and vindictive people who insult and bully us only add fuel to a painful existence. Intuition may warn and caution of dangers or upset that may lie ahead in a situation whether or not we pay attention. Intuition will suggest change to a safe, happier and more fulfilled situation, environment or position.
If we learn to trust and have faith in ourselves the volume of intuition will intensify. This practice often begins by having faith in something outside ourselves. As sensitive, intuitive women, we often see outside ourselves. We follow the lead from inside. Someone once said, “Linda if you can’t trust me, trust God and if you can’t trust God, trust me.” I called this person during a crisis and she was unavailable. An answer revealed itself. It was the beginning of trusting whatever it is…inside, out there, God, intuition, self and wisdom. The soul knows. I’ll remind you again to “Be Still, for I AM, God”. Like my mother telling me she had eyes in the back of her head, I now know she was highly intuitive and usually correct, even though I defied her more times than I care to admit now. My hindsight proves she was right and my intuition leads me onward on the right path today.
The secret and the answer is simple. All we need to do is listen.
Dr. Linda Salvin

FB: Linda Salvin
With her extraordinary evolution from Epidemiologist and Environmental Health Specialist to impacting hundreds of thousands of lives as a pioneer of “psychic radio,” Dr. Linda Salvin’s multi-faceted life and career is proof that sometimes God and the Universe have larger plans and higher purposes for us than we can originally envision. After 12 years of running from the unique gifts first bestowed upon her as the survivor of a Boeing 737 crash and several other soul-changing, near death experiences, she embraced her sacred responsibility as a spiritualist and healer.
Though her mega-successful career on the airwaves has earned her renown at various times as “America’s #1 radio psychic,” Dr. Linda is also a private practitioner whose guidance has helped everyone from politicians, professors and university deans to prominent celebrities, students, housewives and everyday people. She is known as a “psychic’s psychic,” as she reads for other psychics and helps people awaken to their gifts. Since the late 90’s, she has been a thriving entrepreneur drawing on her expertise in the ancient art of candle magic to change countless lives via her candle line Wicks of Wisdom. Her creative pursuits, including years of gigging as a singer/songwriter and rejecting two record deals, are boundless. Since earning her Ph.D. in Metaphysics from the American Institute of Holistic Theology, she has artfully fused her medical background and spiritual gifts/expertise as a metaphysical clinician, helping people with her unique approach that draws equally on science and spirit, the physical and esoteric.
Building on her popularity in the early 90’s as one of the top rated, 900-line psychics on the Psychic Friends Network (whose infomercials were hosted by legendary singer Dionne Warwick), Dr. Linda was selected out of 364 psychics in 1994 to be the “nighttime psychic,” on L.A.’s then-adult contemporary station KBIG 104.3 FM, appearing twice an hour for five hours. Her immediate success with listeners led to an opportunity to host and produce her own show on KIEV 870 AM, after which she started syndicating with CRNDigital Talk in over 350 markets. By 2004, her national show was syndicated to another network of radio stations.
She later launched “The Inner You with Dr. Linda Salvin,” on 97.1 KLSX Los Angeles for five years, then moved for a time to KABC 790 AM. After several years away from the airwaves attending to her private practice, entrepreneurial activities and personal business, she will be returning to radio in February 2020 on KHTS in Santa Clarita, CA with an hour show dedicated to her work as a psychic, spiritual adviser and practitioner of the FDA approved, fat reduction technology called Strawberry Laser Lipo. Drawing on her own body image issues growing up in Los Angeles, Dr. Linda believes that the non-invasive, 20-30 minute procedure - where a cold red laser is applied to the skin and directly attacks fat cells – is the perfect way to lose inches in problem areas.
Dr. Linda’s influence on radio has created demand for countless TV appearances over the years. She has brought her expertise, authoritative voice and healing vibes to “John & Leeza,” “Hard Copy,” CNN-fn, “The Conspiracy Zone with Kevin Nealon,” “Nine on the Town,” various news segments and more. More recently, she was featured with Awesomeness TV for a YouTube show which coincided with Sony’s press junket for the 2017 release of the remake of the film “Flatliners.” In 2018, she appeared on CBS’ syndicated “Face the Truth,” hosted by Vivica A. Fox.
Since the late 90s, Linda has been a successful spiritual entrepreneur with a specific and unique candle magic line called Wicks of Wisdom. Trained in candle magic by a Santeria priest and incorporating elements of Kabbalah, Linda launched her line in 1999 so that people from all walks of life could contribute to their healing and life aspects. Removing any stigma of the occult, Wicks of Wisdom serve “…like a prescription for your soul.” Each set includes three candles, two ounces of essential oil, herbs and powders to create the desired result from the user’s ritual. It has all the ingredients needed for enhancing finances, luck, love, health and wellness, harmony and legal issues. A truly global phenomenon, Dr. Linda’s vision has manifested in happier, more fulfilling lives for thousands of users. In 2006, she created an infomercial for her candle line and hired Kris Jenner to host her show. The clip of this presentation currently has over 336,000 views on YouTube.
Dr. Linda was not born with the psychic gifts that have been her trademark, legend and inspiration to hundreds of thousands. In fact, she often jokes that had she not lived through all her traumas, accidents, incidents and transformations, she wouldn’t believe her story, either. Dr. Linda began her life immersed in the medical sciences, earning her Bachelor’s in Health Education from San Francisco State University and a Master’s in Public Health with a focus on Epidemiology and Environmental Health from the University of Michigan. Prior to the series of accidents that changed the course of her life and spiritual progression, she served as an Industrial Hygienist for General Dynamics, creating and implementing a new industrial health program for 7100 employees at the Pomona aerospace facility.
Not long after Dr. Linda started her next job as an Environmental Health Specialist for an insurance company, she was aboard a commercial airliner that crashed at John Wayne Airport in Orange County, CA in 1981. She’d had a premonition of the exact spot the plane would crack in half; she felt 50 feet out of her body for at least four months. This surreal reality was the beginning of her redirected journey. After the plane crash, she was hit by a fire truck in 1982, and two years later,, she had an auto accident which brought her to the White Light and a choice to continue to ascend or to live and shift gears on earth. She sees these as her initiations to work in the spiritual world.
During her healing time after a major surgery in 1991, Dr. Linda discovered her healing abilities in dramatic fashion, applying the intense energy in her hands to the body of a woman with multiple personality disorder. When the woman reported that she had been completely healed, Dr. Linda began realizing her higher purpose. While on the rise as a radio personality a few years later, she had another surgery to remove 100 tumors from her hips and thighs. She was given the opportunity to connect with the other side to communicate and give closure to grieving people here on earth. Dr. Linda was proving her transmediumship on radio long before the internet caught on.
“The Department of Health, Education and Welfare defines health as the state of Physical, Mental, Emotional and Spiritual well-being, not merely the absence of disease,” says Dr. Linda. “Through all of my many endeavors, I find ways to focus on all of those elements, bringing the science and spiritual aspects of my life into situations where I can not only be a healer but promote health conscious lifestyles and preventive medicine. Having been on the radio for years, it was easy for many to simply see me as a psychic, but my medical background plays a great role in all the work I do.
“Few professionals address the spiritual aspects of illness and life to make the whole,” she adds. “In metaphysical diagnostics, I can quickly analyze someone’s issue or ailment, diagnose the situation and suggest the solution to heal from their pain and discomfort while providing spiritual peace and acceptance. I often teach people that understanding God is as simple as understanding the way a butterfly moves through the world. Using that metaphor, I have taught people to stop being fearful and simply become comfortable in their own skin. It was only when I stopped trying to control my life and surrender to God and trust the Universe that everything changed. Since then, everything I do is grounded in helping others find healing, purpose and peace.”
