Many people try to make New Year’s resolutions each year. By the end of January, they can’t remember what they were. The last several years, I have chosen a word of the year and focused on that rather than making New Year’s Resolutions. It is like setting your intention for the year. It is less about specific goals, and more about how to live your life.
I have written my word of the year down, meditated on it, and generally had it visible so I can remember. I even put it on the lock screen of my iPhone, so I see it constantly! Whenever I felt a little off, or unfocused, I bring up my word of the year. It helps to reset my intention.
The Year 2020 becomes especially important for setting a word of the year, because it is also a new decade!
My Word of the Year 2020 Is….
In 2019, my word was IMPACT! Did it help? Boy did it ever. I have helped more folks than ever with Homeopathy, starting with the PTSD study, which is winding down. IMPACT will continue to impact me and the world around me well into 2020.
There are long term benefits for all words of the year, but each year, I choose a new one.
For 2020, I cheated a little bit. I chose a phrase, three words long. My phrase of the year for 2020?
Drum roll please…..
Just See It!
There are so many things we don’t see in our lives, and if we just see them, our lives will be better. It could be truths about ourselves, others, the world in general. For me, it will help see the story my clients are telling me. But mostly, I think we don’t see the core of ourselves, so the focus will be there. Seeing our own core helps us see others and the world in a way that is more accurate. If you “just see it,” our emotions interfere less with our lives.
Choosing Your Own Word For 2020
Have you decided on a Word of the Year yet? How does one choose?
For me, it just came up. Each year. This year, it came up during a conversation with a friend. If you set an intention for finding your Word of the Year, you will recognize it. You will “just see it!”
Once you have chosen your word, one that seems right to you, set your intention for 2020. Write it down. Take a picture of it. Make a meme. Create a video for yourself and what your Word of the Year means to you. There are many ways to set your intention on a regular basis with your Word of The Year!
I think the Word of the Year is a great activity for your family on New Years Day!
If you would like to share your word of the year, click reply and let me know what it is. Or, share it on Facebook along with this blog post! Get your friends involved!
Happy New Year to all and many thanks for those who have trusted me with their homeopathic care!

Meet Kathryn Berg the Classical Homeopath at Lotus Homeopathy, Inc.
Some of you know me, others of you may have heard of me. And for most, you probably have no clue about me or my business. So I wanted to take a few minutes to introduce myself, my family, my business, why I am a homeopath and how I became a homeopath—not necessarily in that order.
Like many people, I found out about homeopathy accidentally. I fell down while walking my Akita pup on an icy sidewalk on a typical Minnesota winter day. I was scheduled to go to a friend’s house later that day, so when I did, I asked her for some ice. You need some Arnica, she told me. Arnica? What’s that? She explained that Arnica is a homeopathic remedy for trauma.
At the time, the only place to get homeopathic remedies was a book and herb store in South Minneapolis. So I went there to get some. When I got there, I decided I should read some books so I actually knew what I was doing. I left with the Arnica 30c and three books. By the time I got done reading them, I knew I wanted to be a homeopath.
It was only several years later that I realized that I was attracted to homeopathy as a profession because I am a problem solver. It is what drives me. There is nothing like a well chosen homeopathic remedy to solve problems.
At the time I decided to become a homeopath, there wasn’t even a school here in in Minnesota. But eventually, my homeopath and his business partner started the Northwestern Academy of Homeopathy. I was a graduate of the third class. At the time I went there, it was a part time program taking three and a half years! Since then I have studied with numerous other well known and respected homeopaths in continuing education studies.
While I do work with all sorts of folks with a variety of conditions, I really have studied how to treat people suffering from PTSD, health issues related to aging women, and children’s health issues of all sorts, including autism. I have also been successful in removing blockages to healing due to suppression of symptoms by western medicine. I chose those specialties because people really suffer who have those forms of dis-ease, and Western Medicine doesn’t seem to have much of a solution for them.
After over twenty years of practice, I still get excited for clients when a remedy has helped them heal.
So that is about my business. Now, a little bit about me.
I have two adult sons in their early twenties, so I have shed the title of “Soccer mom”. My husband and I are empty nesters living in Woodbury, MN. For fun, I like to play piano, sing, sew, garden, hike, and travel. I am in a community choir. I also enjoy cooking healthy meals and, out of necessity, am an expert at cooking for special diets.
