Resolutions suck. Do this instead.

Resolutions suck. Do this instead.

Ganesha is a God of doorways, protection, and good fortune: an ideal ally for the turning of the year!

Maybe because we had the Winter Solstice in the Northern Hemisphere. Maybe because the new year (and my birthday) are coming up really soon… I took a break from business to start DREAMING about the future.

This is an essential step to Magic and Manifestation.
The one thing I can promise you my future does NOT hold is New Year Resolutions!
You may have noticed by now that resolutions almost never stick.

Frankly, I think New Year Resolutions are BS. They’re typically born from a place of failure, hurt, and self-abuse. And they set you up for more of the same.


I like to stack the deck for absolute success. The first step is to failure-proof your intention for the new year.


Here’s what I do…

Instead of resolutions I set a THEME for the year.


Setting a theme is like choosing a flavor for the year. A context. What the year will be about. It’s not a fixing thing. It’s a growing thing.


My theme often grows out of what I want to learn and experience this year. I also tune into what’s ready to happen. And EVERYTHING gets accomplished. It just happens. Every year. Without forcing or failure.


Unlike goals, which work best when they’re super specific, a Theme should be general, even vague.


Leave room to be surprised by what shows up and how the theme reveals itself.


In my experience, the surprises are much better than anything I imagined for myself. For example, last year my theme was “Foundation Building.”


I had no idea that would mean I would find–and buy–my dream house (at below my budget), set up house with my husband, and attract my superstar business support team.


Today I cracked open a new copy of my Financial Alchemy workbook for 2018, and went through my theme creation exercise (page 43).


==> My 2018 theme is Money Goddess.


“What does that mean?” you may ask.


This year’s theme is particularly personal and quirky. It has a lot to do with the Goddess work I’ve been doing in Bali, and where I want to go deeper next year.


1) Pleasure, Fun, Service, Love, are top values in my life and business. These are inherently ABUNDANT Money Goddess values. The more I stay aligned with these values, and the more I TRUST myself and my Intuition, the better my results are in every area of life. And yes, there will be more travel, more weddings with my husband, and leading more spiritual retreats with my ideal clients…


2) 2017 lit a fire under me to speak out, to be bold, to fight for the rights of humanity–women, children, gays, people of color, people with disabilities, the economically afflicted… ALL people (including able bodied, heterosexual white men). Something in me, probably connected to turning 50 this year, has shown up in my having fewer F***s and more courage. I saw my mother and grandmother go through this personality shift, and I’m thrilled to be discovering this particular Goddess shift growing within myself.


3) I’m writing a book. I wote my Money Goddess book proposal and signed with a very big agent. (He represents Eckhart Tolle, Marie Kondo, etc.)  This book will my Spiritual Manifesto for women who want to grab those slings and arrows of sexism and economic insecurity and create their own fortune according to their own values. I have a vision of writing this book to create Money Goddess support circles around the planet. Playing this game scares me, and Sometimes a thing is worth doing something just because it’s scary. Cause that’s what Goddesses do.


What is YOUR theme for the year?  Please share it below.

    Great article Morgana! I’ve never chosen a theme for the year before. The thought coming to my heart & mind is: Build having fun! (My relationships, my business, my health, my bank account, my courage – all the things!)

    1. Morgana says:

      What an awesome theme! It sounds like the set up a of a great year.

  2. Jude Wrege says:

    Hi Morgana Looking forward to making some Large Foot Prints!

    I Love you my Friend

    1. Morgana says:

      I love it!

  4. Kelly says:

    Thank you Morgana for the Theme idea. I came up with Playful Abundance in Love!

    1. Morgana says:

      Right on!

  5. June Rittmeyer says:

    I love this idea. I haven’t chosen my theme yet as I’ve only just read the article. But I’m enthusiastic about this.

  6. Patty says:

    I really like this idea. I’ve never bought into the resolution thing, either. It’s the monkey mind (ego) locking you into something that might not be for you, and yet you’ve made that resolution and feel you have to stick by it. Or not. 🙂 If you’re gonna do something, just DO IT as the opportunity arises. I will have to ponder on my theme for the next trip around the sun. It’s sure to include mucho abundance and love! Thanks for the idea!

  7. Anne says:

    Resolutions indeed suck and I have never had the slightest desire to save the world which I think is perfectly capable of saving itself anyway. I resolved long ago to never make resolutions so I don’t. I do however like the idea of a theme for the year so I am going for effortless riches beyond my wildest dreams this year.

    1. Morgana says:

      I’m so curious what life will be like when EVERYTHING is seen through the filter of “effortless riches beyond your wildest dreams.” Please check back and let us know how that goes!
