Welcome to Spirit my way®
Hi, my name is Linda Cull and Spirit my way is my author and artist 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 who honour the spirit within.
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 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. My writing and art business is called Wilara Press.
I’m mum to two effervescent boys, 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 and paint – 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 three funny 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!
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!

Wilara Press began in late 2014 as my business and publishing name after years of writing and painting and dreaming of becoming a published author. In 2016, I released my first book Where The Light Lives and Wilara Press is the name that appears on the spine of my print book.
In 2017, Wilara Press expanded to include self-publishing consulting for aspiring and established authors of the mind, body, spirit genres. Having self-published my own spirituality book, I learnt a good deal, and am still learning, and wish to support others, perhaps like yourself, through the self-publishing process.
I believe strongly that we can improve the circumstances of our and other people’s lives, and the condition of our planet, through words and images inspired by Spirit. This, then, is what Wilara Press is all about. To be the light. To share the light. To grow the light.
“ There are two ways of spreading light: to be the candle or the mirror that reflects it.
– Edith Wharton
I first heard the word Wilara spoken as a woman’s name; it sounded beautifully melodic to me. When I discovered its meaning, it inspired me. Wilara means moon and my favourite natural wonder is the moon. I often gaze upon a full moon because it takes me home. It’s representative of the God-light within each of us.
