Visitors to the LizianEvents Well Being Shows enjoy the mix of therapies, readers, holistic goods and retail opportunities. Mel Jones is a well-known retailer of silver jewellery. Mel and her partner Pat embellish the business ethics of integrity and fairness. They source high-quality products and sell at fair prices. Visitors will find them approachable, and Mel and Pat are happy to share their wealth of knowledge with all Visitors.
Whenever possible, we add podcast audio interviews to Community Profiles:
Listen to Mel talking about her work here:
The team comprises one bubbly, outgoing, energetic enthusiast (Mel) and one lively character with a wicked sense of humour (Pat). Mel-Jay was set up in 2006 by myself, Mel, but a few years ago, I met Pat in bizarre circumstances (ask us !!), and for the last few years, we have run it together. We love giving you a laugh, a smile and a feel-good factor. Our motto is ‘LIVE TO LOVE; LOVE TO LIVE.’
The stall began as a sideline to my colour/crystal work, but it grew…and grew…and grew, and when Lizian described it as a ‘magpie’s delight’, I smiled with joy. Pat and I lovingly source quality silver and gold semi-precious and precious gemstone jewellery from around the world, each item handpicked for its unique energies and healing properties. Mel also enjoys creating bespoke items and provides a fantastic wedding range. Commissions are welcomed, from bracelets to tiaras. We also have a sound reputation for rare and unusual crystals/minerals.
WHAT INTERESTS US?
The unique and profoundly exciting people visiting our stall are our venue’s most essential part. We are privileged to have made many friends who revisit us repeatedly and often attend talks and workshops outside the media. Mel can see chakras and has an intuitive and deeply spiritual connection with her spirit guides and Archangels, Michael, Raphael and Azrael. Allow her to enjoy fruitful discussions about the healing aspects and significance of the colour/crystal combinations you choose.
The question we find difficult is ‘What do you do?’. My answer is usually…….’ I breathe ‘; our focus wholeheartedly is on being of service, helping to make a difference in people’s wellbeing on all levels, facilitating inner healing and changing perspectives. Understanding one’s experiences and the source of discomfort is the first step to understanding the link between our thoughts and feelings, the flip side of the coin. Mel loves helping people unlock their self-awareness, nurturing, inspiring, guiding and supporting them every step. Everyone should allow their spiritual gifts to blossom.
HOW DID WE GET WHERE WE ARE TODAY?
I was not ‘apparently’ psychic from birth until, aged 14, an old lady turned up at the door and completely disappeared within 2 seconds of leaving. My conscience told me I had failed a test to be of genuine service; my first wake-up call. But I continued to fit into ‘preordained’ boxes. School, Durham University studying Classics, and I drifted into teaching( or so I thought), enjoying all age ranges from 4 to 18. My passion is Latin and Ancient Greek GCSE and A-level work with private Maths and Science GCSE tuition. I gave up my career the day I was asked to apply for a Deputy Headship. I was expecting and chose to work part-time as a cost draftsman and private tutor while bringing up my children, an enriching and invaluable experience. But teaching was a qualification I was to need after that.
However, in my thirties, I found myself suffering from Coeliac disease and facing a rare but excruciating nerve-ending condition that put me in bed for almost eight years on and off. The Universe had stopped me in my tracks; I was ignoring my chosen path. Getting myself out of bed, knowing my life had a purpose, was the beginning of the much-varied study with some fantastic mentors.
THE END RESULT??
For years I have run one-to-one/group creative meditation classes. The fun began when past life cycles started emerging ( It certainly made for exciting holidays as they unfolded!)
Lizian first nudged me into card reading, and I soon realized I could read cards without knowing how the information came to me. At the start of my claircognizance and throughout the early years was, given unexpected clairvoyant and clairaudient experiences, seeing aura colours, even my own. Clairsentience is a dominant feature of my work, and I channel emotion and past illnesses from spirit. But then claircognizance took another turn. I could look at a person and tell them how their chakras were presenting. I could see intricate patterns woven between them. To quote one lady, ‘It’s bizarre having a stranger tell you what is going on in your life when you have never met them before.’ Astrology has been an invaluable tool alongside the cards.
I was then synchronically directed into the world of holistic healing and complementary therapies. As a Reiki Master /Teacher Practitioner and Natural Energy healer teaching Reiki, Chakra Reflexology and Deep Chakra analysis, I am passionate, but I offer Colour/Crystal Therapy modules too. I enjoy tailor-making courses to individual requirements and thoroughly enjoy delivering a comprehensive set of talks/workshops aimed at self-development and self-awareness.
And then I met Hamish, International Earth Energy Dowser, who recognized I was naturally tuned into Earth Energy. He told me I was ‘special’, which made me very uncomfortable, but he virtually slapped my wrists, saying I knew the ‘ego trap’ and in trying to avoid it, I was ignoring my natural gifts. Everything took off after that., including leyline work, geopathic stress location and house cleansing.
Am I lucky? You bet. The only warning is….. I love to talk.
Well, Pat became a therapist after his father had a stroke, and he realized there was a significant improvement by massaging the affected areas. So he studied massage and, over the years, has added many therapies to his repertoire, including several Massage Techniques, Aromatherapy, Reflexology and Chinese Cupping. He encouraged me to add complementary therapies to my work, and I enticed him into the world of colour/crystal and spiritual development. And to quote Pat ‘The rest is history.’
