Where The Light Lives is the inspirational memoir of Linda Cull, a young woman from a traditional Southern European culture which was traumatised and fragmented by the Second World War and civil conflicts, and the story of her spiritual awakening journey.
Linda was born and raised in Australia, far from her ancestral lands and their brutality, but the effects of war and cultural displacement impacted her formative years through the struggles of her immigrant parents.
As a teenager Linda was diagnosed with a spinal condition which caused her pain, disfigurement and humiliation, escalating her feelings of anxiety and despair.
Turning to God for comfort and meaning, at the age of sixteen, Linda heard God’s voice calling her name and she had her first of many transcendent experiences.
Throughout her twenties and thirties Linda experienced out-of-body travels to heaven and back, encounters with God, angels, spirit beings and the dearly departed, culminating in a profound healing of her life from personal and intergenerational grief.
Acts of spontaneous inspired creativity, enhanced intuition, synchronicities, premonitions and past life visions have further expanded Linda’s understanding of reality and the interconnectedness of all life.
This intimate account provides remarkable insight into spiritually transformative experiences and their after-effects, the nature of God, heaven and the soul.
It is a book for anyone who has ever contemplated the meaning of life, had a spiritual experience, hoped for true healing or wondered about the spiritual survival of a departed loved one.
In sharing her story, Linda hopes you will remember and reclaim your Divine connection.
"Where The Light Lives is a beautifully written account of a young woman's extraordinary visionary experiences. Diagnosed with a painful and humiliating disease of the spine, Linda Cull wanted to die. Without even nearly dying, she then had a series of encounters with a dazzling light-being that transformed her life. Similar to the classic near-death experience, Linda's sense of being flooded with lessons from a transcendent source awakened her artistic imagination, which launched her on a career as a brilliant painter. Her book is a document of hope to all and should expand the horizons of human psychology."
