5 Northern Ireland Designers To Watch This Season

Belfast FASHIONWEEK HQ on Bruce Street, Belfast, came to life once again for the return of the Local Designers and Boutiques catwalk show. I might be a high-street girl at heart, but this is one show that I always look forward to, since it’s a chance to take a glimpse at our incredible local talent. But who turned my head this season? Take a look at my top five Northern Irish designers to watch out for this season and beyond.

1) Deux Cara

Stefania Egan in Deux Cara

Every one of the local designs showcased this season were fabulous, but Deux Cara were my favourites by miles. Their collection, which was very much suited to the red carpet, was brimming with statement gowns, ballerina skirts and absolute showstoppers; and it was right up my street.

Deux Cara was created by two fashion friends John Gerard O’Neil and Neil Coogan, and proved incredibly popular on the night. Co-designer…

Eckankar: Spiritual Exercise of the Week

Dreams, Soul Travel, and LoveHarold Klemp

There are many ECK spiritual exercises. Each one opens you a little bit more to the Sound and Light of God.

This spiritual exercise is for three different groups of people: (1) those who don’t dream but want to, (2) those who dream but want to Soul Travel, and (3) those who want to go beyond dreams and Soul Travel to the state of direct knowingness. The exercise is so simple that it may seem as if I’m belittling your intelligence, but I’m not. Truth is always simple.

Just before you go to sleep, sit quietly on your bed. Close your eyes. Chant HU very softly, or if someone is in the room with you, chant it silently to yourself. HU is a special word, the ancient name for God. You could call it the manifested Word or the Sound; it has a power of its own.

As you take the time to sit there and chant HU, the name of God, you are making a commitment with Divine Spirit. Chant HU in a long, drawn-out way for three or four or five minutes, and let yourself settle down. Then wait for a few more minutes before starting the next step.

For those who have been unable to remember their dreams, simply chant the word dream spelled out. Chant it out loud, letter by letter: D-R-E-A-M. Do this for about five minutes. Next, chant the same thing quietly for a few minutes, and then just go to sleep. As you are falling asleep, say, “I would like to remember a significant spiritual dream.” With this method, you are asking for truth to come through the dream state.

Some of you want Soul Travel, which is usually an advanced state beyond the dream state. Again, sit on your bed or on the floor, shut your eyes, and look into your Spiritual Eye. This is located at a point just above and between the eyebrows. Don’t expect to see anything there; just chant HU, the holy name of God.

Then spell out Soul Travel, chanting each separate letter: S-O-U-L T-R-A-V-E-L. Do this about three times out loud and then three times quietly.

Those who have Soul Traveled may now want to go to the higher state of direct knowingness, without having to go through the intermediary stages. Dreams and Soul Travel are helpful and important, but at some point you outgrow them.

Simply chant the words divine love. Originally I was going to give it as L-O-V-E, but some people would mix it up with human love. The word divine takes it beyond human love. Divine love brings you all forms of love, including human love. To limit it to the usual definition of love is like working from the bottom, instead of working from the top of spirituality.

So, chant D-I-V-I-N-E L-O-V-E. This means you seek the highest form of love, which brings all blessings to you.

The goosebumps test: Science has found the emotion you need to stay healthy

The goosebumps test: Science has found the emotion you need to stay healthy

A link has long been proven between negative moods and ill health. But how do positive moods affect us physiologically?

Researchers from the University of California, Berkeley, set out to discover exactly that when they tracked emotions such as compassion, joy, love, and so on versus the levels of interleukin-6 (IL-6)—a secretion which causes inflammation in the body—in the saliva of 119 university students. The researchers found that those who regularly have positive emotions have less IL-6—and they noticed the strongest correlation with one particular emotion.


“There seems to be something about awe,” Dacher Keltner, a psychology professor and the senior author of the study, told the New York Times. “It seems to have a pronounced impact on markers related to inflammation.” Most of us think of awe as something felt rarely—but we may experience it more than we think. The students reported feeling awe three or more times a week. “How great is…
