Inspiration for a Thursday afternoon

Individually, we are one drop. Together, we are an ocean.

Spring Retreats, Classes and Workshops

Spring is in the air, a great time to try something new, a yoga, meditation or pilates class, from Iyenger to Ashtanga there is something for everyone, for the most advanced student I would recommend one of Sebastien Carincotte’s Hot Yoga classes in Ibiza Town and for yummy mummy’s to be Pregnancy Yoga with Jacqueline Purnell. If you prefer a private lesson Ana Santos teaches the Pilates Method. Feeling a tad more exotic – Zorah’s Oriental Dance will bring out that inner goddess!

Daily rituals for a happy and healthy life







1. Daily meditation

Meditating daily has numerous benefits, from improved health, reduced stress and anti-aging benefits to the gifts of clearing and raising energy, inner peace and centring, connecting to your Higher Being, and receiving divine inspiration. Even just 5 minutes once a day will be beneficial. You can extend that to 2 (or 3) times a day, and move from 5 minutes to 10, then 20 minutes.

You can just sit back, relax, and allow the meditative experience. Even simple breath awareness or mindfulness meditation, where you focus on your body and breathing, and any sounds in your environment, to become very present and still, allowing thoughts and feelings to come and go without attaching to them, allows you to become centered and clear, detached from your linear thinking mind, more grounded and in your heart.

2. Daily manifesting routine

A daily manifesting routine can be integrated or added along-side your daily meditation. It could be something as simple as visualizing your goals for a few minutes each morning and/or night. You might also want to read a goals list each morning and/or evening of the current goals you are focussing on.

3. Gratitude

Allow yourself to feel grateful for at least 5 things in your life each morning as part of your blissipline routine, and at the end of the day for things that happened during your day that you are grateful for. This will align your vibration to that which is good, true and beautiful in your life, to that which you love and appreciate, and attract more of the same at an expanded level into your life.You might want to keep a gratitude journal too, but remember, the key is FEELING the gratitude more than thinking about it or writing it down so don’t make it an intellectual process, let it be a feeling one.

4. Time in nature

Spending time in nature is healing and recalibrating, and aligns your energy to beauty, harmony, peace, love and enchantment. The wondrous energies of flowers, plants and the nourishing energy of Earth herself, have a very rejuvenating and transforming effect on your being.

Being in nature will also ground and discharge negative energies, as well as open your heart and uplift your spirits – food for the soul indeed!It can also give you time to stop, reflect, be at peace, and be with yourself to receive insights and inspirations and ponder.

5. Do more of what you love

Doing more of what you love and what brings you joy will raise your vibration significantly and attract more success, happiness, joy and opportunities into your life in all areas! All work and no play makes for a dull day. For a high vibration that will boost your all-round attractor factor, be sure to add regular FUN to your weekly schedule!

6. Open to receive

When you try to do everything on your own, you will burn out and become exhausted. Life doesn’t have to be a struggle. Ask for help when you need it. Choose partnership. Be courageous enough to be vulnerable, to receive, to be open and transparent. Ask the universe for help regularly and be open to receive the outer promptings, synchronicities and opportunities that come your way.

7. Love and accept yourself

“No amount of self-improvement will make up for a lack of self-acceptance”. Robert Holden. The more you accept yourself as you are, the more you let go of what you’re not. Quit the self-punishment, blame, inner criticism and self-condemnation. End feeling guilty for it serves no one. Forgive yourself and clear your limiting self beliefs (at this link), and embrace more of the love, light, innocence and WONDER that you are.

8. Take responsibility

As James Allen says, “Circumstance does not make a man, it reveals him to himself’. The more you take responsibility for your life, the more you are able to change it. Become conscious of the thoughts, feelings, beliefs and attitudes that are creating your world. Take responsibility for them and choose those that serve you.

9. Follow your intuition.Your intuition holds the key to your brightest future and all the guidance you need to craft your life optimally. It enables you to engage the grace and magic of CO-creation! When you access and apply your intuition, AMAZING things start to happen!

10. Act on opportunities

Follow your heart and act on the opportunities the universe is offering to you and the doorways that are opening. When you apply your intuition and work with the law of attraction, opportunities will present themselves that will take you to your goals in magical and effortless ways…So it’s important to ACT on them!

You might want to write down any synchronicities and the outer ‘promptings’ in your world, as well as insights through meditation and dreams, that you feel are pointing you in the direction of your bright future.

11. Be yourself

Be yourself; you’re the only one qualified, plus you’re amazing!Dare to be unique, dare to be you, dare to shine your colours, glorious and true.Being yourself is not only the key to success in your life, it is the best way to serve others and your world. Don’t hide yourself or your gifts. It’s why you’re here.

12. Love <3 love <3 love

Love yourself and others.

There may be times this is easier than others, but make it your overriding intention. Love lies at the heart of all that you seek, and separation from it at the root of your troubles and pain. Let love be a guiding light in your life that will steer your ship through stormy waters back to the shore of truth, happiness and joy. We all love to love and be loved! It doesn’t get better than that! Love is the highest vibration in the universe. The more you love yourself and others, the happier, brighter and more successful your life will become.

Love yourself and the rest becomes easy! And know you are loved. You are loved totally and unconditionally by the source of creation.There is nothing you need do to win that love and nothing you can do to lose it.

Becoming aware of this truth connects you to your inherent value, increases your sense of worth and deserving, heals pain of separation and loneliness and opens you to the love that is there for you in every moment.
