Welcome to Spirit my way

Hi, my name is Linda Cull and Spirit my way is my author website and blog covering spirituality, inspired creativity, and transformative experiences.

I created Spirit my way during my 40th year in celebration of the awesome spiritual power that healed my life, and as a way of connecting with people who have had exceptional human experiences, and those interested in the subject.

Also, for people who honour the spirit within, that heals, transforms and inspires life, and those wishing to grow in their spirituality and creativity.

At Spirit my way you will enjoy an attitude that nothing is impossible. Why? Because I’ve experienced the unbelievable and the impossible. And perhaps you have too!

I’m the author and publisher of the book Where The Light Lives – a true story about my spiritually transformative experiences. I’m a visionary artist and my paintings are like snapshots of my out-of-body journeys and inner visions. I’m also the founder of Wilara Press – a provider of mind-body-spirit author and self-publishing services.

I’m mum to Oliver, eleven, and Daniel, eight, and they keep me engaged and grounded in an active suburban life. My day revolves around our family activities, my creativity, and spirituality. Our home – from where I write – is my sacred place. It’s surrounded by gardens, trees, parkland and the sound of birdsong.

The best decision I ever made was to marry their dad, Rob. Together, with our boys, a dog named Harry and four bunnies, we live a regular life in the friendly city of lights, Perth – on the west coast of Australia – the most isolated city on earth!

As a young woman, this distance from everything made me want to leave home and travel and see something else of the world – which I did. From this, I learnt that people are more similar than not, despite our differences. There is a power that unifies us and that power is Spirit.

I’m also an ‘experiencer’ of a phenomenon commonly associated with the near-death experience – though I haven’t been close to dying in the physical sense. Being an experiencer has super-charged my spiritual life. My book, art, this blog and Wilara Press have all manifested from my spiritually transformative experiences.

There are many different kinds of spiritual experiences to be had. Lots of people, from all sorts of backgrounds, have had them and we can all benefit from them if we take time out of our busy lives to listen, to hear and to reflect upon these life-enriching experiences.

Sharing my story

My spiritual awakening journey began many years ago, in the depths of despair of my perceived limitations. I was over six feet tall at fourteen, thin and awkward, with a disfiguring spinal condition.

Although I grew up in an idyllic suburban setting in Perth, my dad, as a boy, was traumatised by the brutalities of the Second World War, and the remnants of his suffering affected me deeply.

From sixteen, and into my twenties and thirties, I had many remarkable experiences of consciousness which healed me of depression, body hang-ups, cultural fragmentation and intergenerational grief.

I encountered spirit beings and angels and had many other-world experiences – like past-life visions, premonitions and after-death communications, and amazing synchronicities, which offered me a new take on reality and the conditions of my life.

I experienced the divine light and had a guided life review and preview on the spiritual plane, and acquired an ability known as ‘spontaneous inspired creativity’ – which is a very intuitive way of creating – in my case, art!

The pulse of God moving through me brought such intense pleasure that I felt I might burst like the ripest berry in the sun. I almost couldn’t stand to feel such rapture and then it was as if my mind exploded. I burst out of the confines of my thoughts and into the highest stratosphere of consciousness. Everything here was bright white light. There was nothing other than The Light of God.
