The first thing I want to tell you about Linda Wallace is that sheís able to do things most cannot. She can "communicate with the other side" and she not only talks with them, she is a certified "ghostbuster" and a clairvoyant as well as being an "Angelic Sensor." I began our visit by asking her what that means. "Iím an Angelic Sensor, which means I talk to angels," she replied. "Iíve been talking to them since I was 3 years old."
To tell you more about that, we have to go back to when it all started. Linda is 55 years old and was born in Long Beach, Calif. A divorced mother of three children, she has seven grandchildren, all living in Southern California. "My oldest son, Scott, is 37 and works on the new TV show ĎFreakiesí on NBC," said Linda proudly. "He worked with Angela Lansbury and did some producing for the show ĎMurder She Wrote,í and Scott was a producer on the TV show ĎThe Pretenderí and a few other shows. Aaron is 34 and is an auto mechanic, and my daughter, Wendy, is 28. She works in customer relations for a Southern California company and is a psychic, too."
Since both she and her daughter "are psychic," I asked Linda if she can tell the future - "Yes, I can" - and when she gave that answer, I asked if she would kindly give me the California Lotto numbers for the next drawing. "I canít do things like that or results from sporting events or know what slot machine is hot and ready to hit," she said with a laugh. "I even have caller ID and there are some things I canít do, but there are many that I can."
Well, since she dashed my hope of winning millions of dollars, this visit is over! Just kidding ... "Iím not a fortune teller," she continued. "Iím gifted with certain senses and I like helping people and Iíve always done that."
Before we get to talking about some of her talents and what Linda can do, a little more about her family. Lindaís mom and dad (Helen and Jim) are both 79 and have been married for 58 years. "Dad worked for over 30 years as a supervisor at American Can Company and Mom was a beautician for over 25 years and owned her own place," said Linda. "I have one younger brother, Gary, who owns and operates his own business. Heís an auto-body man and lives and works in Cerritos, Calif." When she lived in Southern California, Linda was a business consultant for doctors, lawyers, universities and telemarketing companies and did that for 30 years. "I owned my own business and had seven employees," she said. "During that time period I worked for 12 years for the Garden Grove School District working with special ed students."
She first came to Nevada in 1992, when she moved to Reno and opened her business there. It was called Synchronicity and dealt with her talking to angels and other things. I asked her what she talks to the angels about. "Everything and anything," she answered happily. "I talk to all the angels, including spirit beings, and I talk with the departed, too. Both for my clients and my own departed relatives."
Linda came to Carson City in February of this year and "moved my business here" and sheís also "all over the world" on the Internet.
Tell us about your business here in Carson City, Linda. "I conduct weekly workshops at Kennedy Books on John Street and the next one is this coming Saturday," she said. "Itís a flower essence and aroma therapy workshop and I do private readings, do intuitive reading parties and I communicate with the dead for my clients and do many more clairvoyant things.
"At age 5, I was made aware that I was different. Until then I thought everyone could communicate with spiritual beings and see, hear, feel and communicate with them. I do readings, Tarot cards, pets, past lives and I chat with the departed.
"My mission in this life is to facilitate and amplify the energy connection between both sides while sharing these experiences with others."
She covers many subjects in her work and workshops, including a "Celebrity Spirits" one in January, New Year readings, Celebrity Spirits and Great Romances and Valentineís Day Love Connection Readings plus Pet Readings.

LETíS TALK GHOSTBUSTING AND MIND READING
I asked Linda if she could read minds and if she saw the movie The Sixth Sense.
"Yes I did," she laughed. "I am the sixth sense ... I can read minds, but only if people let me, but thatís not what I really do ... And I am a ghostbuster, too. People call me in to their homes and or business because something weird is going on with spirits and I have the ability to communicate with them and persuade them to leave. Iíve had good success at ghostbusting over the years. About 80 percent successful."
SEE HER TV SHOW
Linda has a brand new show on Carson Access Television called "The Flamboyant Clairvoyant" on channel 10 that debuts this Tuesday at 8:30 p.m. It repeats Thursday at 1 p.m. "Itís a half-hour show and weíll have a new show every week," she said. "Weíll be dealing with everything from angels to aliens to the paranormal and more. Itís different and enlightening and weíll have specialists in whatever field weíre discussing as a guest each week. We also have a live audience for each taping." Linda is also "almost finished" writing her book and I love the title - Itís called They Call Me Crazy, Donít They? and I got her to promise me an autographed copy when itís published. "Itís about my psychic life from birth," she added. "Itís a pretty amusing story and all true."
Time for our visit to end, but being who she is, I assumed Linda already knew that!
