Dr. Linda Salvin




Linda Salvin received her Bachelor of Arts in Health Education from San Francisco State University in 1975 and went on to earn a Masters Degree in Public Health with a focus in Epidemiology and Environmental Health at the University of Michigan in 1977. She was ordained as a Doctor of Divinity in June, 1999 and awarded her Ph.D. in Metaphysics from the American Institute of Holistic Theology in 2008.Upon graduating from the University of Michigan in 1977, she returned to her native Los Angeles, California where she secured a position as an Industrial Hygienist for General Dynamics.  Linda was responsible for creating and implementing a new occupational program for 7100 employees at the Pomona aerospace facility. Nearly three years later, Linda went to work for an Insurance company as an Environmental Health Specialist in late 1980.

Dr. Linda Salvin was not born with psychic gifts. A series of devastating accidents transformed her life. A successful public health official, Linda survived a commercial airliner crash in 1981 while on company business.   As she slid down the emergency ramp, she experienced an out-of-body experience as well as hearing a loud voice speak to her which she had never heard before.  Her life changed forever February 17, 1981.  This was the beginning of her transformation from her scientific background to her psychic and spiritual evolution. A year later, her car was struck by a fire truck in 1982, causing another out-of-body experience as well as physical injury.   And, a traumatic auto accident brought her to the brink with the white-light experience in 1984.  While not understanding what was happening, Linda continued to advance psychically.  A major surgery in 1991, proved to be another life-altering experience.  It was during her own healing period she discovered she had been given healing abilities to help other people. With each of these experiences, her spiritual connection to the Universe, her psychic and now healing gifts evolved.  Eleven years passed after the plane crash before Linda would determine where she would become most satisfied and needed with the changes.  In 1982, she accepted a position at USC in Cancer Research but did not find fulfillment and left.  There were various non-Public Health related positions until 1988 when she became a Health Educator in charge of establishing the Drug Abuse Program at Cal State Northridge on a temporary assignment.  From there she went on to work with a program where she taught AIDS education to youth on parole with the California Youth Authority.  Still dissatisfied, she sought ways to integrate her education and experiences to assist others on this new holistic and metaphysical path.  Linda reached out to begin helping and healing others.  She turned her own challenges of adversity to inspire and guide people.

In addition to developing, through referral, an international following as a respected psychic, healer and channeler in private practice, she took her skills to a wider audience via radio in 1994.  Linda was selected out of 364 psychics for a night time station. Her radio broadcasting career began as the night-time psychic on Los Angeles' KBIG 104-FM. Later she produced and hosted her own show on KIEV 870 AM in Southern California, prior to her move to syndication with CRNDigital Talk in over 350 markets. In 2004, she further syndicated her show nationally to a network of radio stations.  Salvin hosted her show every Sunday evening on Los Angeles’ KSLX 97.1 FM Talk for nearly three years before moving across town to KABC 790 AM. On an average night, Linda answered an average of 50 calls in a two-hour broadcast, leaving the audience compelled for more. The Dr Linda Salvin Show is the recipient of two Be Real Broadcasting Awards, 2010 and 2011. Her talk shows can be heard on her internet station at , and KCAA 1050 AM in Southern California.  Salvin recently joined the broadcast line up on Pwrtalkradio.   Dr. Linda has teamed with to syndicate her new Dr. Linda Salvin Daily Horoscope Show nationwide..  Lastly, Dr Linda has been signed to a Hollywood Talent Agency for talent and literary representation and is speaking to TV executives about her TV show ideas.

Linda has guest on hundreds of radios shows over the years including Coast-to-Coast AM with George Noory.  She has served as resident psychic for different stations, too. Linda also created a spiritual candle magic line called Wicks of Wisdom® which work like “…a prescription for your soul.”®   to help people enhance their health, finances, love, luck and more.  She has produced and aired a national TV infomercial currently airing, also online at  To qualify her experiences, scientific background, training, the science and magic of the candles, she decided to earn her PhD in Metaphysics which is a combination of theology and psychology. In February, 2009 a prominent New York Rabbi after hearing her on the Joey Reynolds show on WOR called Dr. Linda Salvin a prophetess.  Listen to Linda and she will touch your soul. Known as a "psychic's psychic", fellow psychics consult her from cities across the United States. Oftentimes she has guests on her show including other psychics and metaphysical practitioners from related disciplines. Her show is a mix of sophisticated self-help advice, spiritual counsel and the wisdom provided by her special visions. People from all walks of life seek her guidance—CEO’s of Fortune 500 companies, celebrities, professionals, office clerks, blue-collar workers—and everything in between. 

She can be reached at 888 509 1077

11-My amazing friendship with psychic, Dr. Linda Salvin started with me listening to talk radio. I heard all these intriguing readings over the radio. I was instantly in awe of "Dr. Linda Salvin" giving these, (what her call-ins said were) "right on", "psychic sense". I soon got her phone number and got what I would call an astounding reading, so "right to the point", I could not believe. Less than a year later, I "friended" her on Facebook, then invited her to a party having to do with a gentleman who had "ghosts" in his house, that no less, from the Sharon Tate murders! I met her that evening, we were friends ever since on Red Carpets together, inviting each other to each one's house's, you name it. I am proud to call Dr. Linda Salvin a dear friend, as I find her to be honest, with a deep sense of integrity, intelligent, talented and with a gifted sense of humor. So proud of you, my dear friend, you have helped so many people, including me, out of the goodness of your heart and your psychic talent, you deserve the best, you are truly a "rare bird"! Katherin Kovin- Pacino

Q&A, February 2014

  • Question: Why should we trust psychics?
  • Dr. Linda: If the psychic is legitimate and can truly make predictions that come true, then the client who seeks the truth for light on the path, can come to depend on the insight and knowledge the psychic presents.  Predictions are made to help ease anxiety, make decisions and enhance awareness on all levels.  Trusting a psychic is only as good as the psychic.  Those without a track record will mislead people and play havoc on their minds.  Otherwise, healing, insight and a light on the path is fun, rewarding and even eerie when things keep happening.
  • Question: Do you communicate with particular spirits or entities? Do you know who they are...names for instance? And are these spirits, angels, deceased people or something else?
  • Dr. Linda: I do not have names or identities for my gift.  I just know I am a pure channel of light and wherever my gifts come from, I am protected, guided and thankfully, quite accurate.
  • Question: Do you prepare for your psychic reading, or is it a spontaneous process?  In other words, are you always ready to read for clients?
  • Dr. Linda: Most of the time I prepare for readings with a little prayer and calling upon the white light to protect me.  I ask the truth be told and suddenly a warm energy begins to flow from within me and words of wisdom, predictions and spiritual insight pour out of me.  As a parapsychologist, psychic, healer and medium, I can analyze emotions, actions and outcome at a very rapid rate.  I prepare more when I am going to channel a deceased spirit for a session as the process for me is draining and taxing as I often pick up on the symptoms of the deceased at the time of passing.  All in all, I am protected.  I cleanse with water and sleep to rejuvenate and begin again the next day.
