'Psychic' says spirits have confirmed a safe Anzac Day
A SELF-PROCLAIMED "spirit warrior" and line dancing teacher from the Gold Coast has said the spirit world has confirmed a safe Anzac Day in Australia and New Zealand.
Liz Collett, who has appeared as a dance teacher on Big Brother, said people need not fear.
"People can celebrate the day for what it is without cause for fear," she said.
This Saturday marks the 100-year centenary of the Anzac landings on the Gallipoli Peninsula in Turkey and since Australia's involvement in World War 1, after which 102,000 people died.
Ms Collett said she was on a mission to help people de-stress and deal effectively with the scare of recent terror threats and loss of loved ones this Anzac Day.
She said she was particularly passionate about helping grieving families or servicemen, who may have unresolved emotional issues like post traumatic stress disorder, anxiety, abruptness or short temperament after war.
Ms Collett's uncle, Ron Cordin, was blinded in the second world war after a hand grenade blew up in front of him in Bougainville in 1945.
"This caused a lot of stress to my grandma Francis," Ms Collett said.
"He had eight siblings, including my mum, and the stress of this had a long-term impact on our family.
"My mum had a lot of stress and someone dear to her died in her arms when she was pregnant with me. When I was born in 1953, her stress and lack of time she could spend with me led to me subconsciously growing up feeling unworthy of love and having great things.
"I always kept busy to prove myself with activities such as gymnastics, ice skating and eventually as a jockey."
Her tips to deal with the stress of either being in war or related to someone who was is to contemplate on the service for their country and the camaraderie.
She said meditation was also a great way to find peace and contentment.
"It's important to understand that with every suffering, there is a reward," she said.
She advises people to communicate and talk about issues.
"Acknowledge them, accept them, feel them and let them go," she said.
"Those who have passed want their family members to commemorate the service they gave and rejoice in the fact they are in a happy place.
"They don't want you to be sad or in mourning. They want you to be happy and not live with a heavy heart. They want you to feel light and happy that they are with you in spirit. It's such a beautiful awareness."
