2014 Michigan Pagan of the Year Jacki S

Proclaimed by: Midwest Witches' Ball - A WitchVox Sponsor
Proclaimed from: Sterling Heights, Michigan


2014 Michigan Pagan of the Year Jacki Smith
Once upon a time there was a young witch with a great desire to help people. And not just a few people.
She wanted to be global in her reach, yet personal in her message.
This little witch was innocent enough to believe her dream was possible and didn’t spend much time questioning the validity of her vision. She just kept on heading toward it ignoring naysayers, personal challenges and those nasty failures that popped up here and there.
She also invited and welcomed many to join her. It was her way. She loved to share, solve problems and cheer people on.
So started the wonderful, wild and sometimes unexpected journey of Jack Smith the little witch that could.
Many of you know Jacki and her brain child, Coventry Creations. Many of you have witnessed the highs and lows, but nobody knows just how dedicated Jacki is to her dream. Nobody knows just how much Jacki put on the line to bring her vision into the world.
To Jacki, sacrifices are part of the deal. There is no bitterness, only inspiration, character building and a whole lot of redirecting energy to where it’s needed to keep moving forward.
Jacki has a lot of raw talent, charisma, and ingenuity and that’s what it took to get Coventry Creations and her Blessed Herbal Candles off the kitchen stove and into your hands. Way back in 1990 when she was putting her ideas together, she used pot and pans, PVC tubing, herbs, oils and wax to create her first candles. Even though she thought they were the ugliest candles she’d ever seen, they were also the most beautiful because they represented hope and answers for the people she made them for.
Jacki’s Blessed Herbal candles are still made with the same recipes she divined years ago and they still bring hope, change and answers to the people who use them. They are real magic. She started with 18 unique recipes and over the years has created hundreds more. As Jacki learned more about the world she knew she had to honor all the different paths if she is to be the woman who spreads her message globally. That’s when you started seeing World Candles, Goddess Candles, Witches Brew Candles, Moon Magic Candles, and Hoo Doo Candles in the stores. She tried and continues to try to reach everyone where they are, so they can all benefit from Coventry Magic.
By now you’re thinking, what is her message? What has Jacki been learning, refining and sharing since 1990? She started out with, “we create our own reality”, but then knew she needed to teach and demonstrate how that worked. Candles were the perfect tool for that. They embodied all the elements. We could use the flame as a focal point and the blessings on the label gave us a positive direction.
Then came the books. First there was Coventry Magic where she “spelled” it out in black and white how you can use candles to bring about the changes you needed to improve your life. The magical instructions are complete, inventive and very effective. All you had to add was YOU.
Then after twenty years of being an intuitive reader and healer, Jacki was grabbed by the Akashic records and learned to take her healing and guidance to a very lofty place. Candles are still an important tool for manifesting, but the Akashic records became the Holy Grail to uncovering and healing our past so our magic making is cleaner and longer lasting and much more rewarding. Of course she has made this information available to you. Her book DIY Akashic Wisdom was the next level of her message.
Jacki has been in our community, the Pagan community longer than some of you have been alive, sorry Jacki, but you’re going to have to face the fact that you’ve blazed a trial for us and that takes time. You have been an example of faith, courage and generosity for us. You’re a leader, teacher, counselor, and a friend. Your creativity brought us all magical tools we can use to become stronger, more focused and purposeful in our lives. We thank you and we honor your dedication to bringing your vision alive and believing that we all have what it takes to become magic makers in our own right.
