• Written by Dr. Linda Salvin

I cannot tell you how frequently I am asked about the purpose of one’s life journey. We all have one primary purpose here on earth, and that is to love; ourselves, others, nature, the planet.

When seeking the answer for direction and a career in life, trust your passion. You are here for a purpose that only you know deep within yourself. Your inner self will speak. The voice is there, the feelings or interest will show itself. Doors will open.

Fortunately not, many of us are told what to do, how to feel, where to go, what to pursue. Our emotions and drive within each of us speaks.  Are you mechanical? Artistic? A helper? Scientific? Everyone looks for the big pie in the sky purpose. We are here to live, love, and learn. We are here to help and love others.  Your purpose is whatever is within you that drives you, inspires you, and completes you, but not to hurt others.

The fulfillment you seek is there once you take it a step at a time to reach goals. Whether through academic pursuits, business endeavors, behavioral or creative sources, you will discover your purpose by living your life honestly and openly to your own calling. Everyone seems to have an idea or an opinion of what is best for you, me and others, not necessarily themselves. Parents often push their children away from the child’s own dream to live out the failed dream of the parent or some encourage their offspring to find their own path and make their own mistakes. As intuitive, sensitive and inquisitive, beings, we search for our connection.

You need to use your gifts to further your search.  The search will lead you to your connection.  The connection will help you embrace your purpose. Be open to the spirit, and let it guide you.  Not everyone finds their purpose; some people search for a lifetime.  Is it wealth, travel, family, work, education, fame, you crave? That is part of the goal, but is it your purpose?

Your soul has memory from past lives and your gifts can be a carryover from those other incarnations.  Apply yourself to intentions you feel within you and do the best you can.  Eliminate your anger, fear, and resentment and be the best you can to be as a more clear and capable person for finding and living the purpose of your life journey. The road is long and bumpy, never a straight line. Life takes over with people, events, obstacles, finances, celebrations, losses, investments, travel, relationship, opportunities.

We all have different views, ideas, concepts, theories and passions. We find our group or family of similar soul incompatibilities as life goes on and we expand and grow. Not everyone will embrace chance, new ideas or various thought processes out of the norm if they are frightened or uncertain of new ways of thinking and living. Our inner guide, that compass point, will usually guide us correctly.

Many times, we are broken souls. We only know self-destruction, abuse or pain. Too many equate pain with love as a result of abusive environments or relationships. Once the bottom is hit emotionally and spiritually, the light works hard to break through the darkness in the soul to return the person to a happier path. The intuition is there, the voices get louder but is the host (person) listening? Feeling? Denying? Able to grasp there can be change for a more peaceful and balanced life?

Most of us doubt ourselves. We get a feeling to take an alternate route to a friend’s house but don’t heed the warning. We get on the usual route only to find a 30 minute delay due to an accident. Where did that hunch come from? Why did we not listen or pay attention? Are we psychic? Are we intuitive? Are we guided by the guy upstairs?

When discovering a path, relationship, making a choice, major decision or opting to follow the unpaved road, I have found faith, trust and belief in the universal energy, God or higher power usually will not steer me wrong. I can do more damage alone with decision making and find a new world awaits me by trusting certain people who are put in my life for a reason.

Doors open or they don’t. I walk through and get hurt. I walk through and leave. I accept or I reject. I appreciate or I resent. I take action or I ignore. I listen or I deny. Our truths lie within each and every one of us. The chaos in the world is a cumulative result of varied opinions, choices, levels of wealth, education, community and even Gods. Few seem to agree for the greater.

When an idea, positive thought, hunch or that 6th sense gut feeling hits, it is usually best to follow it. It is your inner guide, that compass point of spirit leading you and guiding you in the right direction. (NOTE: Please, if intuition is loud, negative, dangerous, harmful to yourself or others, and you are aware of it, seek professional assistance.) The true intuition is not dangerous to yourself or others.

I have learned to let most things happen. Career, jobs, relationships, outings, events, opportunities. If it doesn’t work out something better always appears. Our needs are usually fulfilled; it’s our wants and desires that can get us into trouble or disappointment. Our intuition will guide us but our ego can distract us or make us craving more.

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.

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.

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. 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 once wrote a lyric called “Listen for the Sound of Love”. Intuition…it’s in you and it’s in me;

Just listen…

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 plans to return to radio rebroadcasting her old shows by streaming online.  In podcast form she can dedicate her work as a psychic and spiritual adviser to those who have a passion for the material. 

Dr. Linda is also s certified 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 2019, 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.”
