March is Women’s History Month

Women’s History Month

Women's History MonthIn honor of Women’s History Month, I will share some stories of today and how it all got started.

I love it when I see anyone in my life really step into possibilities and gear up for reaching their goals and objectives. And I have to admit that when that person is a woman who is creating magic in her life, I can really get excited about what she is up to.

Meet Chickenpreneur: Allie Rae Allen

Allie Rae Allen, ChickenpreneurAllie Rae Allen, ChickenpreneurImagine a 7-year-old girl who says, “I’m going to have my own business raising chickens for eggs.” And then she begins to also sell her laying hens. She has a plan, she figures out the steps and she even gets a loan from the bank! Yep! All of that and she is only 7 years old. By the way, this amazing young woman is Allie Rae Allen. If you’re in the Petaluma area, you can connect with her to order your eggs or your hens and maybe just say, “Well done! YOU are impressive!” Her phone number is 707-721-7781.

Could a 7-year-old, especially a girl, manage all that 40 years ago? I kind of doubt it, especially talking a bank into giving her a business loan!

Women are Doing it For Themselves!

I’m a big proponent that women of all ages should have equal opportunities no matter what their goals and aspirations are. So, no matter what their desires women should be able to do just as much and go just as far as men. Whether it is that 7 year old girl or a 70 year old woman saying, “It is time for me to get out of my own way, create my art and bring it to the world” that woman, young or old, should be able to take a chance and step into her possibilities in a big way.

What’s crazy is that in the 1970’s it was truly necessary to acknowledge the extreme differences between the opportunities for women and men. That wasn’t that long ago!

The National Women’s History Project Started in Santa Rosa


It was 1978 and The Education Task Force of the Sonoma County (California) Commission on the Status of Women were recognizing the achievements of women in all facets of life. They initiated a “Women’s History Week” celebration for the week of March 8th, 1978.

Dozens of schools planned special programs and over one-hundred community women participated by doing special presentations in classrooms throughout the county. That first Women’s History Week ended with a parade and program held in the center of downtown Santa Rosa, California. What was truly being acknowledged was that actually recognizing the achievements of women in science, community, government, literature, art, sports and medicine has a huge impact on the development of self-respect and new opportunities for girls and young women.

Other organizations across the country heard of the success of the celebration and decided to emulate it and support an effort to secure a “National Women’s History Week” and “write women back into history.”


In 1980, the National Women’s History Project (NWHP) was founded in Santa Rosa, California by Molly Murphy MacGregor, Mary Ruthsdotter, Maria Cuevas, Paula Hammett and Bette Morgan to broadcast women’s historical achievements.

The NWHP started by leading a coalition that successfully lobbied Congress to designate March as National Women’s History Month, now celebrated across the land.

With an emphasis on positive role models and the importance of women from all backgrounds, the NWHP has developed a nationwide constituency of teachers, students, parents, public employees, businesses, organizations, and individuals who understand the critical link between knowing about historical women and making a positive difference in today’s world.


In 1987, Congress declared March as National Women’s History Month in perpetuity. A special Presidential Proclamation is issued every year which honors the extraordinary achievements of American women.

Heart, Romance and Recover

February is all about heart health, both emotional and physical.

Each year on February 14th, many people exchange cards, candy, gifts or flowers with their special “valentine.” The day of romance we call Valentine’s Day is named for a Christian martyr and dates back to the fifth century, but has origins in the Roman holiday Lupercalia. No matter the history, it is the day that gives many a BIG reason to recognize and celebrate those heart connections with loved ones in their lives.

AND you still have time to get that extra special gift for that special person in your life!

February is Heart Health Month

This is the month we’re made more aware of how we can improve the health of our hearts so we can decrease the chances of heart disease.

Heart disease is the leading cause of death for both men and women in the United States. It is an equal opportunity killer which claims approximately 1 million lives annually. The good news? It is also one of the most preventable. Making heart-healthy choices, knowing your family health history and the risk factors for heart disease, having regular check-ups and working with your physician to manage your health are all integral aspects of saving lives from this often silent killer.

Read more about how to make a BIG difference in having a heart-healthy life.

Giving Service from the Heart

Here’s another “Heart Connection” — and it is doing something really big for the community.

Shiroko Sokitch, M.D.My dear friend and colleague, Dr. Shiroko Sokitch, director of Heart to Heart Medical Center in Santa Rosa, has created an amazing event that is FREE and available online to help you deal with physical and emotional challenges after a traumatic event, like a disaster, an accident or a death in the family.

This event is entirely at no cost and it will be yours to keep when you sign up for it. It’s all about being able to heal no matter where you are or what is going in your life. Register to hear talks by healthcare experts February 12– 19.

The Disaster Recovery Online Summit

This event is here to help those who have endured the disasters we’ve recently experienced—fires, hurricanes, earthquakes, and others—to help them heal and overcome, physically and emotionally, the impacts of living through a disaster.

After a traumatic event, people begin to go back to their daily lives, but it doesn’t mean they’ve completely healed. And, far too often, there are very few resources that address the emotional difficulties and latent health issues that such events can cause.

Health care experts will provide advice on helping children cope, anxiety, mindfulness, self-healing, mold toxicity, even disaster recovery itself.

Get complimentary access to these talks about traumatic recovery now

These 32 talks are yours FOREVER! Meaning, you’ll gain access once they’re unlocked on February 12, and retain it for whenever you need to address trauma for yourself, or anyone else.

No purchase required and no commitment necessary for you to participate.

From Stress to Success – Creating the Miracle of Abundance and Prosperity

From Stress to Success – Creating the Miracle of Abundance and Prosperity

Strong woman in balance

Have you ever felt that you’re not receiving all that you want and desire and that you’re not going to be able to be all you want to be? Maybe what you’re searching for seems to be right around the corner, or perhaps it flits in and then it seems to disappear.

There is a trick to setting intentions and attaining your goals. It’s about creating a state of balance and harmony within your body by allowing your body to experience the movement of energy. When that shift is happening your body will naturally want more of the same, and it will let go of any stuck, stagnant energy that has been blocking your ability to make changes and move forward.


A blockage of energy is just something in the way, like a traffic jam or a beaver dam.  The beauty of this process is that we don’t have to break out the big equipment and get all stressed out by working too hard to make changes. We can gently break apart the blockages and allow the flow of energy to happen and do so without effort. And that flow is what creates the space to receive all that you want to gain.


That is prosperity, whether you’re searching for health, financial abundance, happy relationships, or a fulfilling career. Your goals could include letting go of self-judgment and self-sabotage, increasing productivity and having the vitality to do all you want to do. Anything is possible in this state of balance because nothing is in the way of fulfilling your dreams. For that matter, your intention could be receiving all of those! And then you are on the journey of creating miracles!

Without that vibration of balance in the body, what we want will not come towards us. The vibrations of the body must match the energy you are trying to attract. Otherwise, it just does not show up.

Another step on your journey towards abundance and prosperity is to spend time each day being in thankfulness and gratitude for all that is coming your way. In that state of being you will easily be able to continue to attract all that you want because you are in alignment.

It is easy to follow your dreams and keep those New Year’s resolutions when your energy aligns with your goals and desires. Create miracles this year! You have abundance and prosperity at your fingertips.


Here are two super easy energy tips to help you flow freely toward prosperity without struggle or effort.

Energy movements for expansion of breath and manifesting your destiny:

  • Right hand:  hold on area of right kidney
  • Left hand: hold on area of left kidney
  • Right hand: cup sternum directly below your collarbones
  • Left hand: hold fingers in a vertical pattern on your tummy

There are other “tricks” to help your journey towards abundance and prosperity be a true miracle. It can be easy, effortless and successful. Join me for my Energy of Prosperity Workshop on Wednesday, January 31st.  Follow this link to get more information or to RSVP now.

Holidays bring Joy

Holidays Can Be Filled with Demands and Happiness

Holidays bring us joy and stress. To make sure you have joy, here is my recipe to keep you in balance.

It’s there even though many of us seem to be searching for it this year because of all the chaos that has been occurring for the last few months.

Lucky for me that I love Christmas. I could hardly wait for the Friday after Thanksgiving to decorate the house and bring in the color and lights.  Maybe it’s because I grew up in Minnesota where the winter days seemed exceptionally dark! What I do know is that as soon as I start putting on the lights and meticulously placing the ornaments on the tree, I’m in the spirit. And as that transpires, my heart is open to possibilities and smiles and joy. So, as a result, I decide to spend all of Thanksgiving weekend to deck the halls and enjoy the time and the space I’m creating. And then, somehow or other, it seems like I do have time for all of the other items on my list.

Deborah Myers holding her Sonoma Strong Bear in front of the Christmas TreeHere is what helps me with all of that lifting and climbing and stretching when I’m decorating. Whether I’m placing all of my Santa Claus figures on the shelves or I’m winding the strands of lights around the tree or I’m reaching for the highest limb on the tree to get the absolute best ornament in the space I’ve chosen, I want to have my body easily cooperate and not go into a reaction. I want to make sure that my body will let me do everything that I’ve planned to do.

Daily Clean Your House Flow to Start Your Day Right =  Holidays Bring Joy

First, I start the day with the Daily Clean Your House Flow!

Then, off and on during the decoration extravaganza, I do the following:

1.  Right hand — cup and hold left shoulder near neck

Left hand — hold fingers at left pelvis/groin area

Left hand — move fingers to left sit bone

Switch and do the right side.

2.  Right hand — cup back of neck with fingers on the left side

  Left hand — hold base of spine at coccyx

Left hand — hold outside of the left knee (the anti-inflammatory point)!

Switch to do the right side

To make it even easier — watch this video!


I wish each and every one of you a magnificent and joyous holiday season!
