Airpods in, playlist on the ready, press play…and DJ Bliss’s infectious beats get a head bop or two out of you, for sure. The world outside turns into a blur as “Baby, you’re the one for me, hala wallah habibi” transports you to a shimmering Dubai nightclub.
But what makes DJ Bliss’s story so incredible?
For one, behind the dance and dazzle lies a story of spiritual connection. This Netflix star DJ found his empire not only through melodies but also through the harmonious echoes of abundance meditation.
From his candid revelations on The Mindvalley Show with Vishen, the heart of DJ Bliss’s journey emerges—a tale that resonates beyond the boom boom boom of his latest tracks.

Who Is DJ Bliss?
If you’ve been to a bustling nightclub in Dubai or tuned in to the electrifying beats from the UAE’s airwaves, you’ve likely crossed paths with DJ Bliss’s creations.
Marwan Parham Al Awadhi, recognized globally by his stage name, DJ Bliss, is not just Dubai’s answer to the international music scene; he’s an emblem of Emirati prowess in entertainment.
“The DJing started because I was not the cool kid in school,” he explains to Vishen. “I wouldn’t get invited to the party so I’m like, ‘How do I get to these parties?’ So I said, ‘Let me play some music.’”
But who is DJ Bliss beyond the rhythmic mixes and enthralling beats? He’s not only a pivotal figure on the DJ circuit but also a seasoned emcee, a charismatic TV presenter, and a radio personality who has resonated with listeners across Dubai.
Born and raised amid the sandy vistas of Dubai, DJ Bliss cultivated his love for music early on. It wasn’t just about mixing tracks; it was a medium of expression, a manifestation of his life’s experiences and emotions.I’m like, this word [bliss] is how I like to feel. It’s how I like people to feel; it’s the energy that I like to have around me in my shows; it’s how I like, you know, I want everyone to feel—blissful. — @DJBLISS Click To Tweet
And while his rise to fame might seem like an orchestrated playlist, it was a culmination of small beginnings, continuous learning, and unwavering determination.
The ascension to stardom
DJ Bliss began his musical journey with modest gigs, eventually landing a guest spot at a Dubai radio station. These early experiences, though seemingly humble, not only fine-tuned his skills but were also a manifestation of his early aspirations.
And his talents didn’t go unnoticed. The “Palm DJ of the Year Award” in the Middle East wasn’t just an accolade—it was a gateway to greater things, including a standout performance for London’s Ministry of Sound.
But DJ Bliss isn’t one to rest on his laurels. The 2000s saw him amplify his personal brand with the rave reviews of his television show, That’s Entertainment. Simultaneously, he ventured into the realms of music production, carving his name alongside industry stalwarts.
The world took notice. International tour dates started filling his calendar, thanks to collaborations with Grammy Award-winning artists like Shaggy and Wyclef Jean. (After all, how many can claim to have co-produced for Wyclef Jean or had their album shoot straight to #1 on the U.A.E. iTunes charts?)
And as if DJ Bliss’s net worth of around $1.7 million (according to Reality Tid Bit) wasn’t testament enough to his success, he further expanded his horizons by becoming a main member of Netflix’s Dubai Bling cast. This move only showcased his versatility and ever-growing appeal.
The thing is, his road from getting into parties to the celebrity status he’s at now isn’t about hitting the right tunes. It’s also about harnessing self-awareness, demonstrating that with the right mindset and tenacity, dreams aren’t just dreams; they are realities waiting to be realized.
How Abundance Meditations Sparked DJ Bliss’s Musical Empire
Meditation and DJs? Not typically two things you’d pair together. However, for DJ Bliss, they’re harmoniously intertwined.
On The Mindvalley Show, he confessed that abundance meditations and tapping into a higher consciousness play a pivotal role in his success journey.
“[The ‘Guided Abundance Meditation’ with Bob Proctor] is one of my favorite meditations,” he tells Vishen. “It’s one of the meditations I listen to at night, and I love this meditation, putting it on [before] going to sleep.”
The thing is, this practice isn’t just a personal belief; there’s science to back it up. One study published in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, for instance, suggests that people who practice meditation on the regular report more happiness, success, and well-being as compared to those who don’t.
And by aligning his mind with his music, DJ Bliss didn’t just set the stage on fire; he tapped into a reservoir of inner abundance.

DJ Bliss’s Bliss List
His dedication to meditation is one thing. However, he also takes his inner journey a step further with, what Vishen calls, “DJ Bliss’s Bliss List.”
It’s no ordinary “playlist,” no. Rather, it’s a compilation of these abundance affirmations that he draws upon as a daily mental recharge.
The thing is, this Bliss List isn’t mere words; it’s a potent, scientifically-backed tool for personal growth and resilience. As a matter of fact, according to a study in Social Cognitive and Affective Neuroscience, regularly affirming positive beliefs, like DJ Bliss’s, can fortify the mind against stress.
So what’s on DJ Bliss’s Bliss List? Let’s get down to it:
Print it and stick it up on your wall, mirror, or whichever place would be strategically visible for daily inspiration and motivation.
