How to get dreadlocks like Bob Marley

(6 Steps)

Throw away your combs and brushes

The first thing I did when I decided to lock my hair was to throw away my combs. It was liberating. I felt like…free and not part of the vain traditions of the world. It was like stepping into my natural truth. Throw away your combs and brushes baby, first step to organic locks.

Stop washing your hair for 1-2 months

I did stop washing my hair. I learned from watching youtube videos that I was supposed to go a whole 2 months of no washing, but I only lasted 1. Some of my locks did unravel, but I just retwisted them with my fingers, then I tried to wash my hair just once very 2 weeks instead of every week like I do now that they are mature.

 

stop using shampoo

– Another thing I started to do to grow my locks as a Rastafari was to stop using regular shampoo. You may buy natural shampoo, like Dr. Bronners. They have a pretty good reputation. I have not tried it myself. I am trying to remember the name of the one I used but I cannot right now. Sorry

start washing your locks with lime, aloe,

– Many Rasta use lime and aloe to help their locks from into locks. The aloe helps the locks become more refined. But I find if you keep using it after your locks are matured your hair wont look like hair, it will just look like locks if that makes sense. The Aloe takes away the look of the individual hairs. Which I personally like so, just use this mixture when you are just starting out only.

Go into the sun with your hair wet

– Be sure after you wash your locks to go into the sun light if you can. Sun light helps locks to lock up faster. I know this because I used to cover my locks when they were new and the locking process was fast, but then when my locks got long I would go out into the sun, and I foujnd that the wet hair under the hot sun rays would lock up much faster. With or without the Aloe and Lime Mixture.

Allow Locks to form on their own

– Now As a Rasta we never go tot hair dressers, we do not use  latchdreadlocks are sexy hooks to make lock, we do not use locking wax. We simply use our fingers to twist them, and time, to allow our dreadlocks to form. The whole meaning behind dreadlocks is to live  a fuss free, and vanity free, lifestyle. I hope this article was helpful in giving you tips on how to have locks like Bob Marley. Blessed Love.

One more thing.…cover your hair at night with a silk scarf so your locks don’t get lint in them. Blessed love. 


Dating a Rastafari Guy (10 Things you should know)

Dating a Rastafari Guy

He may not be a Rasta at all!

Some guys have dreadlocks and want others to believe that they are Rastafari. Test him. Say the word fu*k in his presence. If he looks at you like you have just stepped out of a space ship, then he is definitely a Rastafari. If he looks at you and says, that’s ok no big deal. He is probably not a Rasta. Rastas hate cussing. Just tell him you wanted to be sure he was a real Rasta not a False Rasta…he will smile and understand! Tell him you will never do it again, and that you understand that swearing  is offensive. The rest of this article assumes you are dating a true Rastafari guy.

Eating meat is offensive to a Rastafari

Rastas’ do not eat meat. They also do not enjoy others eating meat in their presence. So just do not do this if you want to stay on his good side. Eating meat is seen as eating “dead flesh” in Rastafari culture. It is an abomination, and goes against the Rules and laws of Jah.

He is not obsessed with s*x

Rasta men are not in a hurry to have s*x.  Rastafari men like  and enjoy intimacy, but they don’t see it as a priority in life to mate. Rastafari men priorities are, love, monogamy, trust, and of course unity with his mate. Not simply s*x.

 

 

He is looking for his Wife

A typical Rastafari Guy has an image in his head of his ultimate happiness…here it is….”he has a home for him, his Empress, his Rasta children, and their faith. His wife is natural, with dreadlocks, wearing a long skirt. His Children play quietly and their hair is in locks too. He is helping his Empress to cook a nice ital meal for the family….” You get the picture. He is looking for this woman….in you!

His dreadlocks are sacred –

Your Rasta guy may not allow you to see his dreadlocks until you get serious. If he is one who wears his dreadlocks out, he may prefer that you didn’t try to touch them. Restrictions are a natural part of being Rastafari, and dreadlocks are considered sacred and holy. Just respect his hair. Allow him to start conversations with you about his locks when the time is right…when he is comfortable.

 

Fresh breath and a fresh “V…..” are sooo Important….

Rasta believes cleanliness is an element of love for Jah. So don’t go out to meet him with a sour V, thinking he wont notice or wont care. He will be very disappointed and may never ever speak to you again. Just be sure to shower, and brush your teeth, before getting together with for a date with your Rastafari Guy.

He sees you as an expression of God

Your Rastafari guy sees you as an expression of God. That has to be a good thing right? Well yes it is. But it also means he expects you to act like you know you are an expression of God. So love your self, respect your self and show him that he is not wrong. If you really want to impress him say. “Give thanks” After you eat. He will be amazed. You can tell him you read it on my blog ….lol…

Monogamy is everything to a Rastafari man

Rastafari men do not believe in dating and dating “other people.” If a Rastafari guy is dating you, you can bet, you are the only one! They expect the same in return, or they will be done with you very, very fast!

He is serious about settling down

A Rasta man is serious about settling down and starting a family. He does not “date” for very long without expressing his sentiments towards you. If he asks you to make some changes, its only because he wants to get serious with you so take it as a compliment. he may ask you to lock your hair, or go vegan, or care more for your health. A Rastafari man is a good catch. If you are dating one, know that you are blessed.

Blessed love.

Rasta Flag: 10 Meanings, Benefits, and Uses!

#1 Rastafari Meditation (use)

Jah likes when we take time out for him. Gaze at the Rasta flag noting all points for about 1 minute of its beauty (color, meaning, lion etc.) Then once you have completed this step. Lay down on your bed, on your back, for 20 minutes doing nothing. Just being still. Jah knows…he will reward you for taking the time out, to be with him.

#2 Ethiopian Royal Energy (Benefit)

Royal Energy if positive, can be very beneficial to ones life. My Rasta flag helps me to see my self as more valuable…and teaches me that I need to respect my self at all times. The lion on the Flag Represents King Selassie I himself. Hang your Rasta flag in your bedroom and one in your living room. Doing so brings Ancient Royal energy into the home.

#3 Raise your Vibration (benefit)

When I Relax with my Rasta Flag after a long day, it helps me to replenish the energy that I spent. You know those days that leave you feeling depleted by the time you get home. Your Rasta flag can quickly make you feel better. Raising your vibration in this way, can help you to attract more positive experiences in life.

#4 Rasta Prayer (use)

The Rasta flag may be used for prayer. Do this in whatever way suites you best. I like to lay mine beside me as I pray. I find it gives me that connection to the Most High even stronger. I use a flag of 5×8 size. It’s so big and colorful, in Red Yellow and Green….beautiful.

#5 Victory (Benefit and meaning)

The Rasta Lion of Judah Flag is a symbol of Victory. It reminds of King Selassie I fight to keep Ethiopia under his rule, after the invasion of Italy, by Mussolini. Ethiopia is still called Ethiopia Today. Royal Victory. This Flag is a symbol of strength leading to victory.

#6 Rasta Love (meaning)

Rastafari is a faith of love. We love life, we love our self, love Jah creations, and love Jah. This is a photo of Empress Menen and King Selassie I in their Royal Attire.

#7 Ancestors Connection (Benefit)

Another Benefit to hanging the Lion of Judah Rasta flag in your home, is that it helps one connect to their ancestors. Because the flag is Ancient, and tribal, holding Davidic, and Solomonic roots, it naturally reminds us that connection to our ancestors is natural. So, Hang the flag and just allow the connection to your Ancestors, happen on its own. Connecting with our ancestors, keeps us grounded. Even if you are non-African, it still helps to connect to those we are related to, who have resided on the earth before us. Culture is Culture, Ancestral is Ancestral. To the left is a picture of King Selassie I Father, Ras Makonnen.

#8 Rastafari Unity (meaning)

“Unity” is one of those nice meanings of Rastafari that others should follow. We need more love and world unity. Rasta believe that all humans, all nations, all people, of all classes, need to unite, to help the earth, and make life more loving and more harmonious. As Bob Marley said “One Love.”

#9 Rastafari Earth (meaning)

The Rasta flag is a symbol for the earth. Through this flag we are reminded that life has many facets. That the earth is a part of our life. That the planet is one of our main sources of nourishment. When we love and respect the earth we will get more out of life, as we create balance on the planet. This is also part philosophy of “natural living” and of Rastafari Livity.

#10 Rastafari Strength (benefit)

The Rastafari lion flag, is a symbol of strength. The lion is strong. He wears a crowns. This is not just any lion, but a lion of dignity and wisdom. The lion Reminds Rasta to wear his crown with dignity, and to seek wisdom, on the journey. If you are ever feeling down, just gaze at your lion of Judah flag on your wall. It can provide you with wisdom and strength, to push through. Buy Lion of Judah Flag! here. 

I hope you enjoyed this article. May Jah guide and bless you on the journey. One Love.


Ital Food Diet: 7 tips to cook Rastafarian Ital food

Posted on: July 30th, 2017 by • Sticky

7 Tips & Rules of Rasta Ital Cooking

Ital food diet of Rastas is close to a vegan food diet. The meaning of the word “Ital food” in Rastafarianism means “clean and natural food.” It’s easier to cook Ital food than you may think. Follow these 7 simple rules and tips to follow a natural Ital food, Rastafari Diet.

 

 

 

Ital food diet Tip #1: Omit Salt

– Adding salt to food kills the natural flavour. Rasta believes salt makes the spiritual experience of eating the food non-existent. Eating does have a spiritual component and connection to the Most High, that feels good for Rasta.

 

Ital food diet Tip #2: Natural Seasoning

Certain foods and spices have an abundance of natural flavor. We can use them to season food for flavor, instead of salt. Foods such as…scallion, thyme, garlic, onion, pimento, tomato, and curry powder, are all common seasonings in Jamaican Rastafarian food. Try not to use black pepper. Rasta says its bad for mens reproductive organs, because it doesn’t break down in the body.

Ital food diet Tip #3: No Meat:

Rasta diet/recipes contain no meat. Rasta also do not eat any pork or shellfish. Rasta believes all meat and pork is “flesh” and “dead” and should not be ingested by the human body. In Rastafari it is commonly known that shellfish clean the bottom of the sea, therefor shellfish are unclean for Rasta to eat. Rastafari are allowed to eat fish, but only fish that have scales are edible, the fish without scales are not edible for Rasta as outlined in Leviticus 11:9:  “These shall ye eat of all that are in the waters: whatsoever hath fins and scales in the waters, in the seas, and in the rivers, them shall ye eat.” Most Rasta now a days are opting not to eat  fish, or chicken. They say they don’t want anything “dead” on their plate, because Jah is life.

Ital food diet Tip#4: protein & Greens:

Rasta’s love to include lotsItal food diet of protein and greens in the food we eat, to provide strength, to the body and help build up our blood. Rasta love to include, calaloo, spinach, broccoli, peas, and beans on our food plate. Common in Jamaican Rasta dishes are, Kidney beans, black beans, snow peas, black-eyed peas and more.

Ital food diet Tip #5: Color and texture of food

– Jah made eating food to be our delight. Food is fun to eat, when various colors and textures and provided to create an experience of variety, flavour and color. Try some bright orange squash, with some yellow ackee curried, and some lovely yellow plantain. Mix up various colors when cooking Rasta food meals.

Ital food diet tip #6: No Cows Milk

– Rasta do not drink cows Milk. Instead we opt for soy milk, or almond milk. Rasta says drinking the milk of another animal is nonsensical. Rasta also say cows recieve way too much hormonal, and other “unhealthy for consumption” injections. Rasta eats clean, natural, and healthy too!

Haile Selassie Quotes: 5 “New Way of Life” Speech Quotes

Ital food Diet: Tip #7: Fruits & Nuts

Rasta love to eat a lot of fruits and nuts. Fruit is good for Rasta to eat because its clean, natural, and meets all the requirements of Ital Rasta food. Nuts are a great food to pack, and eat “on the go.” Rasta like to shop for “organic whole foods” and organic fruits and vegetables, for healthy Rastafarian food diet. Dry fruits and nuts, bought in bulk, may be added to vegan desserts, such as non-milk soy based Ice cream, and Rasta Ital breakfast cereals in the morning. Cooking and creating Rasta Ital food and recipes, on an Ital food diet, is easy, once you know these 7 simple rules. Blessed Love.

How to dress like a Rasta Woman: 10 Tips & Guidelines

Posted on: March 11th, 2017 by • Sticky
Comments Disabled

How to Dress like a Rasta Woman

  1. Dress like a Rasta woman tip #1 – Skirts and dresses as Feminine Clothing : Rasta women dress to embrace their feminine qualities. As Empress being able to carry life is a gift from Jah the creator. Wearing skirts only helps to separate us as divine feminine from our Masculine counter parts. Being a woman is a Joy, Rasta women do not wear pants. We enjoy long skirts to our ankles, they may be tight or loose depending our mood and our duties for that day.
  2. Dress like a Rasta woman tip #2 –Red Yellow and Green Rasta Colors”: Red Yellow and Green are the spiritual colors of Rastafari. We Rastafari wear, “Rasta Colors” in our clothing, In our Jewelry, and Decorate our homes in Rasta Colors too. Rasta colors, mean, love, unity and togetherness. These colors are also found on the Rastafari Lion of Judah Flag. Ttypically Rasta women do not wear pink, however we do if we can match it with a head wrap, for example to give the pink ensemble a “more cultured” appearance. Dressing as a Rasta Woman is all about balance. Don’t forget to check out my “Rastafari Rules for Women” Blog Post
  3.   Dress like a Rasta woman tip #3 –  If Tight… no exposed skin: Some Rasta women wear tight clothing, however there are 2 rules that apply #1: No showing of the skin if the garment is tight. #2: The buttocks and Breast area must be clearly covered, so as not to accentuate or define these areas. Rasta women must not resemble prostitutes, or women of Babylon as we Represent Jah and his holiness at all times.
  4.  Dress like a Rasta woman tip #4 – If exposed Skin… Not Tight: There will be days when we as Rasta women will enjoy a loose off the shoulder blouse, or a nice loose skirt to the knees. We Just keep in mind that we are not trying to attract “sexual attention,” as we are not part of the heathen. Rather Rasta Women dress to demonstrate our divine feminine, in a comfortable manner. On these days, we make sure the garment is loose, so that we appear self respectful, and free-flowing and comfortable in our garments, as opposed to, sensual and seductive in tight, skin revealing garments. You understand. Check out the book life as a Rasta woman to learn more.
  5. Dress like a Rasta woman tip #5 – Make-up to a minimum: Rasta women wear makeup only if and meet rasta black womanwhen they have to. 3 Basic rules: Rule#1: Natural Tones, and colors. Rule#2: No lining of the eyes *SCRIPTURE:When Jezebel, the queen mother, heard that Jehu had come to Jezreel, she painted her eyelids and fixed her hair and sat at a window…”* We Rasta women know eye liner is to attract sexual attention from men, and is a type of make typically used by prostitutes. Just leave your eyes normal. Rule#3: Limit the amount of various makeup products. My personal limit is 3. Foundation, lipstick, Eyebrow pencil. That’s only because Rasta women are not allowed to “pluck” their eyebrows as all hair on the body is considered sacred, in Rastafari.
  6. Dress like a Rasta woman tip #6 – Rasta women Cover her Locks: Rasta women cover the dreadlocks when in Public. We know that our hair represents our faith and is a living sacrifice to Jah. We cover our dreadlocks to respect our faith and ourselves. Rasta Women are aware that in Babylon, sometimes long, loose hanging  hair on a woman attracts the wrong type of attention from men. We wrap our hair so that men and all people who meet and interact with us, see us for who we are as a person, and not our hair style, length, or our hair beauty. Rasta women share our dreadlocks glory, with our Kings, children,  and extended family, not strangers, or people we do not know. Naturally at home we allow our locks to breathe free and hang loose.
  7. Dress like a Rasta woman tip #7 – Rasta women and tights: There will be days when you don’t feel like wearing a skirt. THE MAIN things to consider are, who will I be around today? What activities will I be doing today? Will I be with my Kids? Will there be men around whom I don’t know? Wil I be with My King? When you are with your Rasta King all rules apply, but its ok to wear some tights and a long top. As long as effort is made to cover the life portal, and the back area which tend to be round and enticing to men, then you could rock some tights.
  8.  Dress like a Rasta woman tip #8 – Rasta Women’s and T_shirts: Rasta women can wear t-shirts.

    Buy this Rasta Womans t-shirt

    Rastafari t-shirts are best. THIS INCLUDES red yellow and green and a Symbol of Rastafari such as, a heart, a Lion, A Rasta Flag, A picture of Empress Menen, or King Selassie I. Tight t-shirts with a bra, and long skirt, is cute for casual days.

  9. Dress like a Rasta woman tip #9 – Rasta Woman’s  Clothing is Her Uniform: A Rasta womans clothing is her uniform, just like a Rasta mans outfit is his uniform. I like people to know right away when they look at me that, a) I respect my self, b)I represent a spiritual cause and movement,  c)My clothing is a reflection of my mind and thoughts, d)I am not a part of the heathen or heathen mentality, e) my self-esteem is not dependent on my sensuality, or what others I don’t know think of me. Phew, that is a lot. But, Rasta women take their faith seriously. Whats the point other wise?  Empress Menen is my feminine Divine Mentor. Only her, I try to Mimic, nobody else.
  10. Dress like a Rasta woman tip #10 – No “Babylon” Symbols : No skulls, no upside down cross, no kissing, no polka dots, depictions or symbols on clothing. In Rastafari we believe all energy invites. We do not invite Babylon, death, or, sensuality.

I hope this article was helpful to you as you embark on your new Journey. Please read my books to learn more about Rastafari. You might enjoy, “Life as a Rasta Woman” on amazon.com

Blessed love to all my Empress Sisters. One Love.

IMPORTANCE OF KING SELASSIE I AND EMPRESS MENEN IN RASTAFARI

 

As an aspiring Rasta, You may be wondering about the importance and meaning of King Selassie I and Empress Menen in the Rastafari faith. What role do they play? Why are they so important?  The following is 5  reasons…

IMPORTANCE OF KING SELASSIE I AND EMPRESS MENEN IN RASTAFARI

#1 Royalty and Self Respect

The life and crowning of King Selassie I and Empress Menen in Rastafari, is to demonstrate Royalty, Self Respect

By the example set by the crowning and Relationship of King Selassie I and Empress Menen, Rasta maintain a high standard for ourselves in all things. From the clothing that we choose to wear, to the way we speak, the friendships we keep, and the way we choose to live and view our lives.  Rasta emulates the life and standards of King Alpha and Queen Omega at all times.

How to Emulate “the King & Queen” as Rasta

King Selassie I is the Role Model for the Rasta man, and Empress Menen is the Role Model for the Rasta woman. Some of the ways we as Rasta Emulate the King and Queen are…

Maintaining cordial relationships with others including those who we may consider “difficult to deal with” or whom we may consider to be our “enemies.”

  • Expressing Love and appreciation for our Kingman and Empress as Creations of Jah
  • Speak using consideration for the sensitivity for hearts and minds others

IMPORTANCE OF KING SELASSIE I AND EMPRESS MENEN IN RASTAFARI

 # 2 the Royal Lineage of  King Solomon

Another reason King Selassie I is so important in Rastafari culture is to put a face to the Royal Lineage of King Solomon.

King Selassie I is the 225 direct descendent to sit up on the throne of King David, which was also occupied by the wise King Solomon, who is King David’s son.

Rastafari Legend has it that, The Queen of Sheba and The Wise King Solomon made love and had a baby boy which was named Menilik, who became “King Menelik I.” King Menilik had a son “King Menelik II,” who is King Selassie I uncle. King Selassie I and King Menelik are of “the tribe of Judah,” which is part of biblical Royal history, related to King Solomon.

As Rasta we pay our Respects to King Selassie I as the face of Jah, and all the ordained Kings of the Tribe of Judah.

IMPORTANCE OF KING SELASSIE I AND EMPRESS MENEN IN RASTAFARI # 3

#4 Royal energy in the home

As stated Earlier images of “the King and Queen” as Rasta are reminders of our own Royal Heritage. For this reason Rasta love to have images of the King and Queen in every room in thier home. Including Wall hangings, plaqued photos of the King and Queen, Rastafari mugs, clocks with the Kings face, framed speeches by King Selassie I etc. Rasta believe and feel these Royal images of the King Selassie I and Empress Menen brings positive spiritual Energy into the home and into our lives.

IMPORTANCE OF KING SELASSIE I AND EMPRESS MENEN IN RASTAFARI

#4 Demonstrate Positive history and Heritage

Another Reason Empress Menen and King Selassie I have so much importance in Rastafari culture is that they demonstrate positive African history and heritage.

King Selassie I and Empress Menen were crowned November 2nd 1930. As former slaves, black people have had a hard time in Babylon recovering  the whole truth about our heritage and our history. Many black youth in school only learn that black people were slaves. Not much before black slavery and not much after black slavery, and not much about our contributions to society as a nation.

There were many photos taken of the life of the King and Queen. Jah ordained the crowning of King Selassie I and Empress Menen so that Black people have a positive black role model couple (male and female) after black slavery was abolished. All though the King and Queen are from Africa, and ruled over Ethiopia, in Rastafari, they represent positive role models ordained by Jah for all people of all Nations.

 

 

 

IMPORTANCE OF KING SELASSIE I AND EMPRESS MENEN IN RASTAFARI

# 5 Equality of the Sexes

In the Rastafari Livity, Men and Women are seen as equal, because, the same day

(November 2nd 1930)  King Selassie I was crowned King of Ethiopia, Empress Menen was also crowned, Queen of Ethiopia during the same coronation.

King Selassie I is also known as “The King of Kings” and Empress Menen is also known as “The Queen of Queens” in Rastafari Culture.

 

IMPORTANCE OF KING SELASSIE I AND EMPRESS MENEN IN RASTAFARI

#6 Self Reliance & Legacy

The King and Queen through hard work and determination created a Legacy between them. King Selassie I created schools in his name, ……..Because of this example Rasta also like to build things in our name that people can utilize positively and that carries the name of Rastafari for generations. Bob Marleys legacy was his music and his message. Through his work, he was also self reliant. He left a legacy for his children, and his children’s children.

 

 

 

The Importance of King Selassie I and Empress Menen in Rastafari Re-cap

 

  • Generate powerful positive energy through images and words of King Selassie I and Empress Menen displayed in the home
  • Demonstrate positive African history and heritage, and positive African role models to Africans and the World
  • Demonstrate what an image of self respect and dignity looks like in order for one to emulate it
  • To put a face to the Royal lineage of King David and his son King Solomon
  1. Equality of the Sexes: Teach Rasta equality of the sexes. Both King Selassie I and Empress Menen were crowned November 2nd King Selassie I as “King of Kings…” and Empress Menen as “Queen of Queens…”
  • Self Reliance & Legacy: The King and Queen demonstrate to Rasta to Create our own work

 

 

 

6 STEPS TO CONVERT TO RASTAFARI

 

Many people who want to embrace the faith of Rastafari wonder, “just how do I convert to Rastafari?” The answer is, there is no right or wrong way to Convert to Rastafari. As a Rastafari myself having taken my vow just 7 years ago, there was some inner spiritual things I did, coupled with some outer changes to my environment and lifestyle that helped me to convert my spiritual beliefs from Christianity to Rastafari.

How to Keep a Rasta Happy!

Make a Rasta happy by….Cook strictly Ital (Vegan)

– Rasta love food that reminds them
of Jah living. Food such as vegetables, fruits, beans, seeds, and earth vegetables…, so be sure to cook strictly (Ital) Vegan food, to keep your Rasta Happy.

 

Don’t Curse and swear!

– Rasta do not like the sound of swear words, or put downs, or anything that is said with a malicious or negative intent. Use positive words to express your self or simply leave out the swearing and negative intent. Rasta are sensitive beings.

Show Love to Children and The Elderlybecome rasta, how to know, convert to rastafari

– Rasta love to care for the poor, needy, elderly and children. If you care for persons from this group, this will make your Rasta very happy.

 

 

You Spend time alone…this makes a Rasta happy

– Spend time alone without stimulation from something or someone else. Rasta believes that time alone is time with God. Embrace it. Check out my book of Rasta Meditation. or My Rasta Prayers book for tough times. Many people enjoy it.

If you want to keep your Rasta happy…Respect his or her alone time!

– Respect when your Rasta is a lone.  A Rastafari spiritual and personal time is of the utmost importance. Rasta have spiritual times, that last for hours, or for days… If you can handle that…your Rasta will be quite happy.

Love Jah Rastafari, and your Rasta will love you

A true Rastafari who loves and respects his partner  will want him/her to have their own faith, and Rasta takes simple comfort in the fact that they love God, and have their own personal relationship with him. Some Rasta may appreciate if a one does decide to convert to Rastafari.

Play Rasta Reggae Music, this makes all Rasta feel happy inside

– Rastafari men and women love to hear Rastafari Reggae music playing. It makes them feel good inside. Try playing some Rasta Reggae music to show your Rasta that you care and that you are sensitive to their needs and desires. Try some Dennis Brown, Some Gregory Isaacs, or even some “old school” Garnett Silk. Your Rasta will smile to be surprised by these spiritual sounds.


Seek to “Overstand” Your Rastafari!be a rasta

– Seek to understand situations rather than get angry or become offended. Rasta love when people are patient and seek deeper “understanding” of things.

Never discuss S*x with your Rasta…Just drop hints

– Rasta do not believe in discussing s*xual issues. We believe if your mate, is not a good match for you in this way…it is your fate. We use clean words for s*x, and we don’t seek to pervert or amplify sexual encounters. Rasta sees s*x as love-making.

Buy Gifts that are Rastafari, these make Rasta happy

Rasta like gifts that are red yellow and green, related to Africa, or have a picture of Marcus Garvey, King Selassie I, or Bob Marley on it. When searching for a gift for your Rasta keep this in mind. Rasta love Rasta hats, and Rasta beaded necklaces in case you were wondering. These types of gifts make Rasta feel happy inside. Buy your Rastafarian flag.

Respect your Rasta personal space and items

– don’t change or touch or move anything that belongs to a Rasta. It may have spiritual meaning. Such an action may be taken personally, but Rasta are so gentle that they would never say. Keep your Rasta happy and don’t touch or move personal items.

Don’t ask too many questions about his/her faith

– Just accept Rasta as they are….I guarantee the Rasta in your life is accepting you as you are! So, why not return the favour? Don’t ask to many questions about his/her faith…it supposed to be a personal thing anyway right?

Embrace Cleanliness, Dirtiness makes Rasta unhappy

– Rasta like all things “clean.” Rasta love toRastafari live in a clean home, have on clean clothes, eat clean food, use clean language, and to maintain clean thoughts. That the Rastafari way of life.

Rasta feel happiest when you love yourself

“Self Love” is one of the basic principles of Rastafari. By loving your self, Rasta show you more love for accepting your self the way that Jah created you.

7 Reasons Why People Become Rastafari?

Posted on: August 27th, 2014 by • Sticky

7 Reasons Why People Become Rastafari


#1 Their Parents are Rastafari

Why people become rasta

Rastafari facts and Rasta Information

Many people become Rasta because one or, both of their parents, are Rasta. I guess its kind of like growing up in a Christian household per say, where you learn about walking in the ways of Christ etc. Only many children of Rastafari parents, learn about “The Rasta Livity” and King Selassie I. as Part of their upbringing.

#2 Bob Marley the Prophet was a Rasta

Many people desire to become Rasta to walk in the foot steps of the grow dread locksHumanitarian & prophet and Rastafari Musician,  Bob Marley wrote the song “One Love.” Many people fell in love with him through his music knowing he was being inspired by (his faith) Jah. Many people know that to be a Rasta is to show love, unity and a respect for all of nature and Jah creations.

 

 

 

Ital Rasta food Recipe #1: Ital Rasta Cauliflower

  1. 4 tbsp Tropical Sun Pure Coconut Oil
  2. 1 spring onion, chopped
  3. 1 onion, chopped
  4. 1 tsp Dried Thyme
  5. 1 tsp Garlic Granules
  6. 2 tsp Mild Caribbean Curry Powder

Read the full Recipe how to cook Ital Rasta cauliflower. 

 

 

#3 Their Born with it!

Many Rastas are Rasta because they are born with the Rasta Livity. Jah chose them at conception, then at some point in their lives they have said “yes” to this beautiful gift, they can feel yearning to manifest itself in their life. In other words for some, Rastafari was something that had written on their hearts from birth. Invisible to others, but very real in the heart and mind  the individual (Rasta).

 

Rasta_Way_of_Life_Cover_for_Kindle

#4 Jah Chose them to Be Rasta…

black jesus, rastaman, praying rastaI’ve heard people say “Rastafari is an inborn concept!” and it is. So, many have it since birth, however there are those who are chosen and they don’t know until later. Because (I am assuming) they were not chosen at birth, but chosen later in life. I met a guy (Rastaman) who told me that one day, “Jah just took over” he said. I was happy he shared that with me. It let me know he understood what I had inside too. Rastafari can hit at any age…so there are those who have no clue they are Rasta until the right time.

#5 It Just Makes sense to them!

People don’t want anything to do with Religion any more, but they still want to maintain a relationship with the Creator. Many people know about Rastafari through Reggae music, then research the faith.

  • Rastas are non Religious, you don’t have to attend church…
  • We believe in humility, Peace & Togetherness, we are anti war
  • We do not believe in “converting” others to believe what we believe
  • We Respect nature
  • We try to live as natural as possible
  • We believe all nations should Live together in harmony sharing land and resources

In other words, I think some people become Rasta because it is so calm and peaceful to be a Rasta. There are no real obligations, only the ones you decide for your self, as a Rasta. The basis of the faith of Rastafari is Love! So, why not… become a Rasta...it just makes spiritual sense!

#5 Their Significant other is Rasta

Rasta CoupleMany people especially women, embrace Rastafari Livity because their significant other is Rasta. More people are traveling now a days, and many people are visiting the Caribbean Islands. Because of this many people who wouldnt normally know anything about Rastafari are now getting to know Rastafari Peoples. So, some feel it makes sense for the relationship to embrace the same faith as say, their boyfriend/husband or their girlfriend/wife.

#6 Rastafari  is their Culture

jamaican flag, the jamaican flag buyMany people embrace Rastafari because it is part of their Culture. I can tell you as a Jamaican my self, Jamaica is Rastafari, and Rastafari is Jamaica, There is no separation. Rastafari is such an intricate part of Jamaican Culture that you could almost say Rastafari made Jamaica what it is today. The Jamaican Music, Jamaican Food, Jamaican People, Jamaican Landscape, & of course the culture of Jamaica is all effected by the beautiful, love of Jah – the creator.

A friend of mine, who is also Jamaican, starting embracing the livity just before I did in 2009. He came to the faith through a best friend he has known since high school. I asked how he felt now that he was Rastafari. He said “It feels good.” He seems more spiritually at peace now, and he is now a teacher of Rastafari Culture and the life of His Imperial majesty. Rastafari was always his Culture, he just needed to come in a little bit closer to get the real fruits that Jah and his Ancestors had waiting for him.

#7 To Embrace holistic Lifestyle

dreadlocks postMany people “become Rasta” because they like what Rastafari represents. The holistic lifestyle, the love of nature, meditation, Creativity, A love for Africa the Mother land of all human life…Dreadlocks (natural and simplistic, no vanity.) Rasta Smoke Marijuana instead of Carcinogenic cigarettes. Rastafari is a faith that loves all things natural, because natural means Jah.

how to convert to Rastafari

Convert to Rastafari the book

DEDICATION

For all the Men and Women who aspire to live as Rasta, and embrace the livity to the fullest.

Jah Rastafari.

Table of Contents



 

A book titled “Convert to Rastafari?”

Yes, I am aware that one cannot Convert to Rastafari as Rastafari is not a Religion. I am Tafari, I am aware. However there are many people today who are becoming aware of “the light of Jah,” and seek guidance to live this way of life.

Rasta students seek Rasta Teachers

Rastafari is a way of life that acknowledges Jah in some very specific, special and spiritual ways. Why must one go to a bald head for guidance on Rastafari? Why learn the livity from someone who is a student of the livity themselves?

More Rastafari….More love…..More Unity!

It is my work as Rasta on the Journey, to provide Jah Rastafari guidance to those who seek it. To embrace Rastafari is a blessing. Convert to Rastafari is my way of sharing this blessing of my faith, with those who want to embrace it too. The more Rastafari minded individuals we have on the earth, the better the world will be.

Blessed. Love.

What is a Rasta?

A Rasta is a person who loves and respects, and is spiritually aware of, the earth, himself, King Selassie I, Jah, and Jah creations. There are some basic beliefs and principles, that eve….

Read the rest of the sample on amazon.com. convert to rastafari.

Before you convert to Rastafari there are some things you should know. I really don’t know how far along you are in your journey, but I will share this information with you as if you are just starting out.

Rastafari is a Journey….

rasta-mediation-handbook-book-coverThere will be trials and tribulations as Rasta. Some people don’t like people with locks. They may judge you as lazy, or dirty, or militant, or out of touch with reality. Rasta knows loving Jah is all about the journey, we accept the good with the bad, always looking forward to Zion. So…Just so you know. There are plenty Rasta books you can read for guidance, including Rasta Meditation Handbook, which teaches students of Rastafari about the Journey, of Rastafari.

Rastas are trying to enter Zion….

It is the goal of Every Rasta to enter Holy Mount Zion. We do this by adhering to the rules of Jah laid out for our lives, in the bible. Rasta;s have a few “extra” rules of the Rastafari livity that are not in the bible that have been spiritually inherited, that have more or equal importance. Zion is a place where Jah roams and piece abounds.

Rasta love Africa/Ethiopiaafrica ethiopia

Rasta love African Culture and African Peoples. We honour Africa by studying the history and Culture, and embracing the African Peoples. Rasta have a soft spot for Ethiopia and Ethiopian Peoples as our “Lord and Savior” King Selassie I is from Ethiopia, so our love of Africa is always in our Hearts, and on our minds. .

becoming a Rasta? Rasta Love King Selassie I

rasta god, selassieKing Selassie I defended the Garden of Eden, the land where Jah placed his first man and woman that he made (Adam and Eve) as it is written in Genesis. For this Reason, Rasta know, King Selassie I was raised up by Jah to perform this very important task. King Selassie I is whats refered to in the bible as Jah “Elect.” So, Rasta know King Selassie I had a heart for Jah. That he listened to Jah, Loved Jah, and dedicated his life to SERVING Jah. For these reasons Rasta Love King Selassie I because we know that King Selassie I is the face of Jah for those who want to see the face of Jah. King Thanks and praises….Rastafari.

Rasta dress Jah. Rasta need Jah. Rastas are humble before Jah. The King James Version bible gives guidelines and advice for all that concerns us, Rasta in life. Read the King James Version bible from beginning to end. Then Keep rereading it, from beginning to end, for the rest of your life. This is what Rasta do. We, Rasta are the King James Version Bible….Living by the words inside….accepting the wisdom and comfort as it comes too natural by absorbing the words of Jah.

 

How to become a Rasta pages and books:

 

No Conversion to Rastafari….!?

There is really know conversion into Rastafari. But It all depends how  you measure this. I measure a Rasta by his willingness to live by all aspects of the faith and have an unwavering dedication to it. For some its having all the knowledge you possibly can about The Rastafari Livity. Rastafari is a way of life not a Religion. There is no physical conversion… so to speak.

Book to Test your Self on Rastafari

I am in the process of completing a book to help those who seriously want to know what Rasta know…and to understand the Rastafari Livity from 51fQ7SPHsSL._SX311_BO1,204,203,200_Biblical times, and how that plays into Rasta of Today. I have also included some information about Bob Marley and Marcus Garvey and The Life of King Selassie I. It comes with Test Questions so that you can read the text and then test your self. I intend to write this book so that you will be able to absorb the most import chapters of all my books, including “How to Become a Rasta” & “Rasta Way of Life” and come away knowing that you are now Rasta!

To convert to Rastafari a person needs 3 basic things…

  1. To absorb as much information as possible. From a person or books.
  2. Lock his/her hair. Allow hair to grow into Dreadlocks
  3. Live the Rastafari Livity without any exceptions. Because if you break the chain “you are still Babylon.”

If Converting to Rastafari to you means, being able to “Reason” (share perspectives on Africa and the Livity and the King James Version Bible) as many Rasta do from time to time…then this book is for you. I hope to be finished by September 1st. Give Thanks. King Selassie I. Convert to Rastafari: 85 Tips, Principles and teachings to convert to Rastafari…..now on amazon.com

…say when they ask you are u a real rastafari?

haile-selassie- book coverYes…I know that his Imperial Majesty is the Elect of Jah. I know that Jah is an African Entity. And I know that my Destiny is Holy Mount Zion.

Now, to Really know what it means to be a Rasta takes time. It’s not something that will happen over night. For my self I knew I was Rasta but I still had to learn the facts to back up my feelings…and I am still learning.

 

Rastafari is for people who know there has to be one true faith on the planet. One faith that unites all colors, all classes, all “Races” of people. A faith that has pictures of the Messiah,  a Faith that demonstrates that God has been and still is active today. That faith…is the Rastafari Livity.



So if you want to know what to say if someone asks you if you are a true Rasta, they are asking you if you really believe in Jah, and that he is an African Entity and that King Selassie I is truly the Elect of Jah. I can tell you how I know that King Selassie I is the Elect of Jah because if it wasnt for his “fight” with the Italian invaders, the Garden of Eden (Aden) would not exist today. Jah raised him up to protect and defend this precious land. Jah does not prevent things from happening. He allows them to happen, he places his player where he needs them and he allows the ball to roll so that the story will be repeated for Generations to come….So Your response should be.

“Yes…I know that his Imperial Majesty is the Elect of Jah. I know that Jah is an African Entity. And I know that my Destiny is Holy Mount Zion. ”

Rastas’ are full of faith, and knowing, not believing. If you embrace this way of life you should be too. I have a new book coming out soon…”Rasta Way of Life” and a study book for those who truly want to know all that Rasta knows.

Blessed. In the name of His Imperial Majesty.

Rastafari.

Where is God?

Posted on: November 20th, 2013 by • Sticky

black jesus, rastaman, praying rastaWhere is God? (just some rambling)

If you are like me you have asked your self this question. Well God has a place in all things, but one very important point I want to highlight is, so does Satan.

Have you ever wondered to your self….there must be one truth out of all the Religions. One faith that is the real truth of God. There just has to be….or maybe you have thought all Religions are right they just have different ways of going about getting to God and believing in heaven.

First of all God is not in Religion

I over heard a woman talking the other day saying something like “well, I am a Catholic…” I wanted so much to say, do you know there is no such thing as Catholic. But I did not bother. But really folks there is no such thing as Catholic, that is a division, in a way, and isn’t God God. Jesus was a man, he came here with a purpose, the last thing he wanted to do was have people categorizing, and dividing themselves based on him or anything else. God is in your heart, if you believe in Jesus he is in your heart too. I tell people often…I do not discuss Rastafari because I believe my spirituality is something personal, it is just for me, so I don’t discuss, it. I am not trying to convince others that I am better than them, or that they should follow my way of life. I just think if its personal keep it personal.

What good is it to you?

What good is your spirituality for you if you cannot depend on it wholly and solely for all situations. In other words, if it doesn’t give you a sense of peace, security, and a knowing that all is working to bring you into your highest light, whats really the point of embracing the faith. I am saying if you say you embrace a faith, then there is no reason to become angry, or hostile, or unsure of yourself about anything. Your faith is there for you, always working for your highest good. Well, that is how I see it.

Channeling Aliens???

I brought up the issue of beliefs because I recently met a very nice lady, who told me she is Channeling Aliens and that the aliens have all the answer to everything. I am sure this is working for her because she speaks of it in great confidence. My only problem is….what is the faith called, how do you categorize it meaning how do you know when to do what? Is it giving you peace? I quickly learned channeling and depending on the guidance of Aliens was not bringing her any peace. It answered her questions and told her how the universe began, but she seemed to have an overload of information and a great responsibility on her shoulders. I wondered about her morals and ethics too, which I soon learned…she felt it better not to have any. Example, she is 43, doesn’t mind sleeping with a man as long as he is over 18 – I mean from 21 – 72. I just think that is way too slack. Just me, I am an Empress, and I think morals, and values, keep you clean, give you clarity, and give you a direct path to Zion. Just me.

God is everywhere

God is everywhere at all times. Notice I have used the word God and not Jah. Well here is where I switch things up a bit. Let me answer the earlier question. There is one true faith. Remember when Moses came upon the burning bush. He met God. So the truth of God must be somewhere. What faith did Moses practice? What was it called? He obviously believed in God, because he met him. History books will try to steer you away from the truth by filling your head with lies and leaving many things out. When Moses was through speaking with God, he was not the same man he was before, one of the things that happened instantaneously or over time was, his hair formed into dreadlocks. I know this because that is exactly what locks represent. The King James versin bible makes many references to locks, turbans, sabbaths, incense, covenants etc. These are all related to Rastafari. Rastafari is that one truth. Religion never existed, only covenants, with a purpose, with God.

But….

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAGod….Jah is very strong in Jamaica. I know this because I know it and because when I was there his symbols were everywhere. I felt so at home, so protected like I could do no wrong. Jah 2 major symbols are the Jamaican Flag, and the Lion of Judah flag. Jamaicans have these two flags, painted on walls, hanging in shops, hanging in homes, everywhere. I love it. Jah is real, he does have a place and he does have a people, right now here on earth, that is Jamaica. All Rasta people know it.

Why am I writing this? I am writing it for the people who want to know it. I am also writing this because I want people to know if you think you can be your own God and
Channel Aliens for guidance you are kidding your self. God is real, his name is Jah. This is no Joke. The other point I wanted to make is…a lot of people don’t want to have anything to do with God because they think God is boring. Well God may be boring, but Jah is not boring. He created everything so how on earth can he be boring. Jah is very musical, creative, He loves the outdoors, and loves helping people.

Ok enough rambling…thanks. Sorry I was going to really talk about some real things, then I just rambled.


 


“Charity” (Excerpt from Rasta book on beliefs)

Posted on: November 15th, 2013 by • Sticky
Comments Disabled



Hi guys this is just an excerpt from my new Rasta book I am working on….This is on the belief of Charity. Bet you didn’t know we thought like this…

Charity

moneyRastafari believe that those who have money have been given a blessing and a Responsibility by the Most High.

Rastafari believe that money is to be given away to the Poor and needy.

 

Hording Money is a Sin

We believe that for one to know there are poor people who could make great use of that money that we have accumulated, and yet continue to hoard, as numbers on a bank statement…is a sin. Jah does not like this.


 

As Rastafari we “know” that to have a great deal of money means we are chosen to act as Delivers and caregivers of the poor and hungry and share the money.

 

Rasta Responsibility with Wealth

 

  • As Rasta once we have accumulated a good amount of money we know 3 things

 

  • We were chosen to have this great wealth

 

  • It is our duty as Servants of Jah to Share the wealth

 

To have food to eat each day is a blessing that we share with those who don’t have by sharing our wealth and abundance.

 

Rasta is very aware that every time we fill our bellies there is someone who is going without. Not because we have filled our bellies, but a full belly reminds us that some have and some do not have.

 

Rasta believe greatly in giving to the poor, needy and the hungry.

 

How I support “Charity”

Every time I get paid I buy a homeless person on the street something to eat big or small. I acknowledge them with a smile, and conversation. I know Jah is watching and it creates good Karma for me. It doesn’t have to be a lot of money. You could buy someone a $5 or $10 meal, once, a week or once every 2 weeks. Your belly is full so help someone else’s belly to be full too.

Rastafari as a Non African

white rastaAs stated earlier Rastafari is a way of life, that is rooted in African Culture and Traditions. Because Rastafarian is of Jah, people of all Nations may embrace the Faith of Rastafari. How should you embrace this faith as a non-African? There are a few guidelines to be aware of. A Few boxes that must get ticked, in order that we keep within the principles of the Rastafari.

 

Self-Awareness as Non African

 

Rastafari feels that the foundation of a man/woman must be strong in order to last and be strong. In other words in order to embrace this faith, you will need to start by learning about your own roots and culture. One of the principles of Rastafari is “Self Awareness”

 

Know Accomplishments of your own people

Connect spirituality to your own ancestors

Take pride in your own nation and appearance

Celebrate your people

 

Two Cultures to Be proud of..?

I became acquainted with one individual who felt it “ok” to learn as much as he could about Ethiopia and King Selassie I and Empress Menen, but did not feelrasta god, selassie it necessary to give the same respects to his own roots and culture. According to the principles of Rastafari, this is not allowed. It completely ignores the principle of “Self-awareness” and “self-Love.”

 

Rastafari does not ask Non Africans who embrace Rastafari to know African history and Culture and to ignore their own…to do such a thing is “Babylonian thinking!…It’s like me a black Jamaican African woman embracing the faith of Hinduism, and ignoring my own traditions culture, values and ancestry. Nonsense!

 

So if you want to embrace Rastafari as a non-African…

 

 

Principles of Rastafari

 

When you read the Principles of Rastafari with the Overstanding that Rastafari was…

1.created and implemented by Jah in heart of every Rasta men Rasta woman and Rasta child

2.to help and heal, the black nation out of Slavery, into freedom and independence,

3.to live as peaceably with other Nations,

4.Teach The black nation live clean in order to Enter Zion

…then you will acquire the “Spiritual Essence” of Rastafari.

The true light love and Guidance of the faith of Rastafari.

I have separated the Rastafari Principles into 3 major Categories, for Overstanding and Organization.

Jah

Self

Zion

Others

Jah

 

 

His name is “Jah”

“…Sing unto God, sing praises to his name: extol him that rideth upon the Heavens by his name JAH, and rejoice before him.”

– Psalms 68 vs. 4 King James Version

Who is Jah

Jah is the God of the Universe. There is only one God just as there is only one Universe. “God” does not exist. Only Jah!

What is the image of Jah ?

The image (vibration) or likeness of Jah is…

African,

Black….

 


Love (The Rastafari Principle of…)

Love

 rasta dating and marriage

“Love the black nation

Love of Self

Love all of Gods Creations

Love your brother and your sister show them love

Love the black Nation

All Rastafari regardless of his or her own  ethnic origin must love the black nation, as the black nation were made in the image of Jah and designed as Jah first human. WE know Adama nad |Eve Came out of Ethiopia, therefore all Rasta who love the Almighty love the black nation.

Love of Self

As Rastafari all Rasta must love themselves without limit and without restriction.

This includes your own origin, your facial features, Hair texture, skin-color, eye color etc. Self-Love as Rasta is of the utmost importance. As messengers of love, we know that in order to be effective we must first love our selves.

Love all Jah life Creations

We as Rastafari love Jah the Almighty Creator, so naturally we love all of his beautiful wonderful and Glorious creations. From Humans, to plants, to sunshine, to rainfall, to birds that fly in the sky to Trees…Jah Jah made them all, so with the love of Rasta, we love all living creations.

Love your Brother and your Sister

My ethnic origin is Caribbean Canadian. I as Rasta have to love all other Caribbean Canadian people’s. What’s your origin and back ground? Jamaicans and all Caribbean’s are considered my “brothers and Sisters” As Empress, I show them love, by being helpful, wherever and whenever I can, and sharing an uplifting word whenever possible.

Jah Jah smiles when he sees that I help and lift up my brothers and Sisters. Loving your brothers and Sisters is a demonstration of loving yourself.

Story:

I didn’t really fall in love with myself until I embraced the Rastafari levity. Before then I was wishing my skin was lighter and that my hair could be straighter. During the winter I felt more beautiful, because during the summer I would become “dark” when my hair was permed (chemical hair straighten) I felt more beautiful.

I didn’t know it then but I didn’t love my self until I started wearing my own hair and started to love my curls, and knew that they also represented my Ancestors, who I knew were walking with me everywhere I went. Love yourself for who you are, look at yourself from a perspective that is Royal and Impressionable. We are all created unique and beautiful in the eyes of Jah. See yourself as he sees you. A beautiful unique  masterpiece.”

This is an excerpt from my new Rasta book….”Rastafari Is”…. this is one of the 17 principles Rastafari people live by.

Jah bless. Rastafari.

How to Become a True Rastafarian

how to be a Rastahow to be a true Rastafari5 Rasta Beliefs for Children Why do Rasta cover their hair? What is  Your Rasta NameHow to Keep a Rasta happyRastafari Rules for Women

religionTo Become a Rasta…Forget Religion!

More and more people are coming to the light of Jah Rastafari. That is good, because we are in a very sensitive time. This time and your choice of spirituality will determine your spiritual destiny. If you plan to approach Rastafari the same way you approach religion – Forget it! They are not the same. All religion is corrupt anyway.  If you approach Rastafari as a Religion and not as an awareness or way of life…you will miss the light and truth of Rastafari.

5 Quick Easy Tips to get you started to become a true Rastafarian

  1. Eat Ital Rasta food and follow the food lawsItal Food is clean and natural food that Honours Jah Rastafari as creator of earth and humanity
  2. Learn some Beliefs of Rastafarin CultureRasta Beliefs help Rasta to know when he is living Righteous and when he is living by Babylon
  3. Grow your natty DreadlocksDreadlocks represent the physical representation of Rasta commitment to Jah
  4. Choose your Rasta nameA Rasta name marks the point of your spiritual rebirth in Rastafari truth. 
  5. Leave egotistical behaviours in the pastRasta are humble and seek to lift up all humanity not just themselves to inflate their ego

 

Become a Rasta and Accept and Love our Leaders

martin luther kingIf you want to be a true Rastafari you will have to love and accept our leaders the same way we do. Rasta Salute Marcus malcolm-xGarvey, King Selassie I, Bob Marley, Malcolm X and many more Leaders in the Movement for black Rights and Freedoms. We hang their photos in our homes and teach our children about the progress they made for our rights to walk free today.

Become a Rasta by Incorporating Spirituality into your Life

I always call Rastafari “my spirituality.” Do things that feel good. Light incents and light candles, just because it feels good. Air out your home, and keep it clean. Rasta love to burn some Nag Champa.

How to become a Rasta pages and books:

Become a Rasta with Natural Living

Rasta lives natural. When I wash my hair I let the air dry it. Even though my locks are heavy when wet, I never use a blow dryer. I use tea tree oil to clean my home, and I always use natural deodorant, and do my best to avoid wearing perfumes. Read my book Rasta Meditation Handbook to learn how to Incorporate the laws of living as Rasta into your life. 

To become a Rasta, one must Love the Black Nation

black man black womanAll Rasta have a deep love for the black Nation. If he is Rasta and does not love the black nation, he has disrespected his Covenant. The Black Identity is the apex of the Rastafari way of life. We have a black God, we know Jesus Christ, or Yeshua was indeed black, and we celebrate African Culture in just about everything we do – daily. The black nation is Rastafari – Rastafari is the black nation. Jah loves the black nation. Not to the exclusion of other nations, but Rasta understand why the Black nations is special to Jah. 

Love King Selassie and Empress Menen

king selasse with empress menenLove King Selassie I and Empress Menen. King Selassie I was crowned in 1930 in Ethiopia as King. His wife Empress Menen was Crowned the same time. There for we give just as much respect to the two of them equally. We know King Selassie I was sent here to protect Africa. Rasta are born to love King Selassie I and Empress Menen.

Become a Rasta and Hang your Lion of Judah Flag

rastafari jamaican flag, lion of judah flagThe lion of Judah Flag with its red yellow and green with the lion is the ultimate symbol of Rastafari. The lion represents King Selassie I and the Red Yellow and Green represents African. Together they are Rastafari. Keywords of this beautiful flag are.

  • Love
  • Strength
  • Spirit
  • Victory
  • Royalty
  • Hope
  • Pride
  • Unity
  • Jah

As you can see to hang this flag in your home shows the world that you represent the truth of the God of all mankind. Jah- Ras – Tafari.

Become a Rasta and Grown your Natty Strong

black jesusGrow your natty dreadlocks crown and be proud! Let me be honest, when you first begin this journey as Rasta, it wont be easy. But as time goes on, it gets easier. People will look down on you…but for some reason the longer your locks get the less they stare….weird. Dreadlocks symbolize the same thing as the Lion of Judah flag, the only difference is that the symbol is now on your head instead of hanging on the wall. Oh Jah we love you so.

Rasta Buy Red Yellow and Green Everything!

Rasta people love Red Yellow and Green. We have just about 1 of everything in Red yellow and green. Rasta hats, Rasta scarfs, Rasta jewelry, Rasta t- shirts, Rasta Towels, Rasta clocks, I have seen it all. Usually if we cannot get it in Red yellow and green we want it with the Kings face on it. I love that I could love my spirituality so much. Jah is so good to me. You don’t even know the extent of it. Jah – Rastafari, King Selassie I. I – I.

What is Rastafari? 10 Points

Posted on: August 15th, 2013 by • Sticky
Comments Disabled

What is Rastafari?

  1. King Selassie I of Ethiopia
  2. Celebration of African Culture
  3. Rastafari is a faith of Gratitude
  4. Resist Satan’s Temptations.
  5. Truth of God (Jah)
  6. Order
  7. Unity for all humanity
  8. Forward and positive
  9. Love

Rastafari is….King Selassie I of Ethiopia!

King Selassie I is what Jesus Christ is to Christianity. Yes, King Selassie I was a devout Christian, but Jah has his way and Jah has his reasons. Rastas are Rasta for a reason and Rasta are Rasta with a purpose. I give thanks for the life and works of King Selassie I every day. When I think of him…I think of him as an everlasting friend and my personal Savior. Many Rasta feel this way too.

Rastafari is….the Celebration of Africa

Celebration of African Culture. Rastafari is a celebration of African and Caribbeanmalcolm-x Culture. As Rasta we celebrate every day by wearing Ethiopian colors, wearing Rasta Jewelry of natural fibers, burning incense in honor of those who walked before us. This includes Malcolm X, Marcus Garvey, Martin Luther King etc. and eating clean earth foods, such as yam, potatoes, and greens. Rastafari love African history, culture and literature too.

Rastafari is…Gratitude for What you Have…

In Rastafari, to wake up every morning and allow your self to curse is a Sin. As Rasta we are grateful for all that we have the big and the small. Every morning when you wake up you should say, thank you Jah for my bed, thank you Jah for a good nights sleep, and thank you Jah for another day.

Rastafari means to….Resist Satan

As Rasta we avoid temptations of Satan. This includes, porn, cigarettes, bars nightclubs, Lust etc. We live our lives in a way that is pleasing to the Most High Jah, and keep a tight reign on our thoughts at all times. Rasta knows all unclean behavior stems from our thinking. Keep it clean my beauties.

Rastafari is…The Truth of Jah!

Rastas know the truth about God. We are born with it. It is our Job to educate the black jesus, rastaman, praying rastapeople and guide them into living a life that reflects the life God wants for all of us. Rasta knows God is really Jah and that Jah is the light and truth of all the world. He has rules….he is not a God of slackness, Jah is God, the only God of truth, cleanliness, Zion and purity.

 

Rastafari comes from ….An “Inborn” Concept!

Many people of the west view Rastafari as a Religion. That makes sense…many are not used to an inborn concept such as Rastafari. The truth is Rasta are born that way. They have the rules for living, loving, eating and worship, already written on our hearts at birth. Rastafari is a spirituality of the heart not a religion. That is why there are not that many Rastafari around,. Although many can be found in the Caribbean and Africa.

What is “The Order of Rastafari?”

Rastafari is a faith of order. This can be taken figuratively and literally. In Rastafari there is a way of doing just about everything. The other way Rastafari have an order is to follow in the foot steps of King Selassie I and Empress Menen. They are our Role Models. To go against the order is to disrespect the faith. This includes but is not limited to….not swearing, having your own income, having one mate as opposed to more than one sexual partner. The order of Rastafari is written on the heart of every Rasta, man, woman and child.

Rastafari promotes…Unity for all of humanity

Rastafari is Unity of all humanity. As Rasta because we are a spirituality of peace, we would like to see all nations come together in love and harmony. Rastafari knows that the earth was made for all and that all men are equal, but that some of us want to live from the ego and do not respect other. Unity is the Answer to many of the worlds problems.

Rastafari chooses to….Always move forward…

As Rasta we are forward thinking and positive. I am having a hard time with this lately but, I know it is the right thing. Life is too short to dwell on the past and think negative. As Rasta we look forward to the future, and try to keep positive. Babylon is a hard place for a person who wants to live righteous and clean. Keep the mind and Jah, take time to meditate and keep trodding on.

Rastafari is Love!



To Rasta, love makes life better. Through love we get happiness, understanding, unity, peace, respect, honor support….Rastafari know all good things for all people come from love. We need more love in the world. Rastafari is the rasta dating and marriagerighteous way of life.

 

Blessed. Rastafari.

The Perfect Rasta Man!!! (Beliefs and Ideology)

Perfect Rasta man Beliefs

Rasta man beliefs come from his heart. He is non superficial, and not attached to objects. He understands that life is a school room, and that we are all here to better ourselves as students of Jah Rastafari.

3 Basic Beliefs of a Rasta man

  1. One Love  – One love and unity for all humanity.
  2. Equal Rights – Equal rights and justice for all regardless of class, creed, color.
  3. Natural living – One must live natural to draw closer to Jah.

I was watching one of the videos I placed on my Rasta blog front page. This is my 4th time watching this video, it’s so full of information. I am now on my 4th time really taking in all that this Rasta man is saying. Its everything I feel and know but never had the words for….This blog post is all about the beliefs and Rules of Rastafari. < —-video got misplaced…..

Rasta man does not believe in “White Jesus Christ”

In Rastafari there is no such thing as a “White Jesus Christ.”

  1. Jesus Christ was a Rastaman – He avoided Alcohol, withdrew to lonely places to pray, and new that life is a journey after which we return to Jah.
  2. Jesus Christ was black – He had dark skin and wooly hair. Revelation 1: “…15And his feet like unto fine brass, as if they burned in a furnace; and his voice as the sound of many waters…” click here to read it online for your self.
  3. Jesus Christ was a Nazareth – He lived natural off the land and worship Jah and did not eat meat.

Proof in the bible that Jesus Christ is Dark skinned and woolly haired!

 

Rastafari is the hidden Truth that people seek

We believe in Jesus Christ but we believe in Jesus Christ the Nazarite who was a dark-skinned man with dreadlocks, who loved God, and was sent by God to inform the people who God is real. It is not about Race (ethnicity) Just truth and reality. Rastafari is always about the hidden truth. The perfect Rasta Man knows the truth about Jesus Christ, and embraces that truth, not Babylon lies.

Rasta man does believe in “King Selassie I”

King Selassie I is the descendent of King David. Is this fact not worthy of some praise and attention? Of course it is. But the Babylon system does not want you to know about these things. Mainly because then the truth will be revealed that biblical people and Jesus Christ himself, was in fact black. The perfect Rasta man can feel the divinity of King Selassie I as Jah Elect. With or without the Ancestral Lineage.

Rasta man beliefs about his Dreadlocks

On a Rastafari person, the dreadlocks have a very special meaning. They represent truth, Jah, and natural living. They also represent the awareness that all life began as black and that Jah is a black and very powerful entity that Rasta loves and fears. You cannot call your self Rasta and not have your dreadlocks. It just doesn’t work. Your dreadlocks are your living testimony that you know Jah is real, and that you vow to live to please him all the days of your life. Its sort of like when you marry someone and you  wear a wedding ring. How would you receive a person that told you they were married but just didn’t wear the ring. Nonsensical right. However….

The first Rasta man: Leonard Howell

‘Leonard Percival Howell was known as The Gongor G.G. Maragh leonard(forGong Guru), was a Jamaican Religious figure. According to his biographer Hélène Lee Howell was born in an Anglican family. He was one of the first preachers of the Rastafari Movement (along with Joseph Hibert, Archibald Dunkley and Robert Hinds), and is sometimes known as The First Rasta.

First Rasta man beliefs book

Born in May Crawle River, Jamaica, Howell left the country as a youth, traveling amongst other places to New York, and returned in 1932. He began preaching in 1933 about what he considered the symbolic portent for the African Diaspora—the crowning of Ras Tafari Makonnen as Emperor Haile Selassie I of Ethiopia. His preaching asserted that Haile Selassie was the “Messiah returned to earth,” and he published a book called The Promise Key.  Although this resulted in him being arrested, tried for sedition and imprisoned for two years, the Rastafari movement grew.

Rastaman beliefs have grown worldwide

Over the following years, Howell came into conflict with all the establishment authorities in Jamaica: the planters, the trade unions, established churches, police and colonial authorities, and he was allegedly arrested more than 50 times. He formed a town or commune called Pinnacle in Saint Catherine Parish that became famous as a place for Rastafarians. Nevertheless, this movement prospered, and today the Rastafari faith exists worldwide. Unlike many Rastas Howell never wore dreadlocks. Leonard Howell died in Kingston Jamaica.’

Mr. Howell is known for writing the book, “The Promise Key” but I could only find a book called, “The Promised Key.”

The Work of a Rasta man & his beliefs

A Rasta man or Rasta woman is someone who is supposed to represent his or her people. This is the whole reason they are chosen as Rasta. In being chosen for this very special job, we are also aware that we must keep our mind, heart and soul clean (uncorrupted) to enter Zion. Many Rasta now a day are not taking this seriously, but I do. I am still representing and very much in love with my people. the perfect Rasta man feels compelled to deliver the message of Jah the Almighty, this is his natural-born purpose.

What are some beliefs of the Rastafari People?

Rastas have 10 basic principles. I list them all in my new book entitled white Rastafari. But the basic principles are…

  • Rasta does not eat meat
  • Rasta does not cut the dreadlocks
  • Rasta knows Jah is black

Can a Rastaman eat meat and still be a Rasta?

These are 3 principles of every Rastafari man woman and child. If anybody says they eat meat and they are Rasta, I would say they do not have the heart of Rastafari. The perfect Rasta man knows to eat meat, is to eat dead flesh. Rasta are strictly vegan, and do not eat meat.

Rastaman believes in “Deep love for Black People”

From I was just a little girl, I understood that Rasta loved the black Identity. Iblack couple knew that the colours Red Yellow and Green represented Africa, and I also understood somehow that dreadlocks were a way of wearing black African hair in its natural state. But I was just a kid so I wasn’t completely aware, but these were the feelings I had as a little girl about 2 and 3 years old.

Every Rasta has an appreciation for the black Identity. The beauty of black skin, the truth of black natural hair, and a love of black Culture. The perfect Rasta man no matter where he is from, has a deep love for the black African Identity.

Rastafari Livity & Rasta Beliefs

The perfect Rastaman enjoys living his life as Rastafari. This means listening to the beautiful sounds of Rasta Reggae music, eating Rasta Ital Food, Using natural products to clean his home and cleanse his body, and give thanks and praises unto the creator – Jah every day. To live as Rastafari, means to live life the way Jah intended them to live. Rastafari is a spirituality that embraces natural living, this is what the Rastafari livity is all about.

Rasta man beleifs of : “Cleanliness and Purity:

One thing I have yet to meet is a Rasta man who is not clean. I know some people think that because Rasta wear the hair in dreadlocks, we must not be clean, but actually the opposite is true. Rasta has a “Crown” upon our heads. We make cleanliness and purity a priority, as a way of showing off our crown.
The Rastafari dreadlocks crown represents…

  • Royalty
  • Love
  • Divinity
  • Life
  • Freedom
  • King Selassie I
  • Jah

Rasta is some of the cleanest people on the planet, because we where a Jah crown on our heads, we keep our surroundings clean, to show our love and respect, to Jah.


 


My great black Ancestors, I salute you as Rasta.

Equal Rights and Justice for all

Equal Rights and Justice for All. It should be no surprise that equal Rights and justice for all is one of the principles of the Rastafari Livity. Rastafari is ancestral. An aspect of this faith that often is not mentioned, but lives strongly in every Rasta man woman and child. My ancestors were brutalized, hanged, black women beated and raped, black men  were forced to ejaculate in order to reproduce more black slaves. These things hurt my heart. However, they are with me….It is no wonder they have very little positive things to report to me. They want to me to share with others what it was like to live in such a time. The time they were stolen and removed from their homeland, Africa, and forced to live a life of subservience. As Rasta the component of my Ancestors is 2 fold. I must Salut my Ancestors as being from the same realm as Jah the Almighty, and I must Salut them as paving the way for my freedom today. I love my Ancestors and they love me. They want me to know things, better yet they want me to understand things…and believe me now I do. I have more respect for my great black Ancestors than I ever have. Now that they have put me in situations so that I could see, hear and experience some of the same things they did, while under a slave master.

No I cannot just forget…

No I cannot just forget what happened to my great black ancestors for a number of reasons

  • to do so would be disrespect, I would not want my descendents to disregard my trials and tribulations in that manner
  • My faith does not give me a choice. They are with me, they influence my experiences, my thoughts, my actions etc
  • They help me to be a better writer because they give me a perspective unknown to me before.
  • Jah Jah, calls for me to make remembrance of them.

How I salute my black ancestors

I salute my ancestors by lighting an incent in their honour every time I keep the sabbath. I love them. I know they went through a lot of hatred, conspiring, and that they were killed BECAUSE of their natty hair and dark skin complexion and that they had not the resources to defend themselves. 

Then came the black leaders/heroes

then came our leaders and heroes, such as Malcolm X, Martin Luther King, Marcus Garvey, Emperor Haile Selassie, and many others.  They risked and GAVE of their lives in order to fight for equal rights and justice for generations of black people to come. HEY THAT’S ME!! how can I dismiss my ancestors and live as if there was no such thing as the black struggle. As a natty haired dark-skinned black woman today, I see the same prejudice and discrimination that my people faced. It’s a hard thing. But one thing for sure, when I am around my people, I feel so much love in my heart. The black struggle made us unique and strong, and gave us help from the other side. I am a proud black woman. Jah Rastafari.

Today, black children coming up have no idea of the black struggle. But I will teach it to them. They need to know the truth, they need to know of their history, they need to be proud and salute their ancestors.

 

The Song Buffalo Soldier, Bob Marley

I invite you to read the words of this Bob Marley song. When I took the time to really listened to it the other day, it made me cry to realize just howrastafari love and marriage black people, my people must have been feeling at that time.

Buffalo Soldier lyrics

Buffalo soldier, dreadlock rasta
There was a buffalo soldier in the heart of America
Stolen from Africa, brought to America
Fighting on arrival, fighting for survival

I mean it when I analyze the stench
To me it makes a lot of sense
How the dreadlock rasta was the buffalo soldier
And he was taken from Africa, brought to America
Fighting on arrival, fighting for survival

Said he was a buffalo soldier, dreadlock rasta
Buffalo soldier in the heart of America

If you know your history
Then you would know where you’re coming from
Then you wouldn’t have to ask me
Who the ‘eck do I think I am

I’m just a buffalo soldier in the heart of America
Stolen from Africa, brought to America
Said he was fighting on arrival, fighting for survival
Said he was a buffalo soldier, win the war for America

Dreadie, woy yoy yoy, woy yoy-yoy yoy
[ From: http://www.elyrics.net/read/b/bob-marley-lyrics/buffalo-soldier-lyrics.html ]
Woy yoy yoy yoy, yoy yoy-yoy yoy
Woy yoy yoy, woy yoy-yoy yoy
Woy yoy yoy yoy, yoy yoy-yoy yoy
Buffalo soldier troddin’ through the land, wo-ho-ooh
Said he wanna ran and then you wanna hand
Troddin’ through the land, yea-hea, yea-ea

Said he was a buffalo soldier, win the war for America
Buffalo soldier, dreadlock rasta
Fighting on arrival, fighting for survival
Driven from the mainland to the heart of the Caribbean

Singing, woy yoy yoy, woy yoy-yoy yoy
Woy yoy yoy yoy, yoy yoy-yoy yoy
Woy yoy yoy, woy yoy-yoy yoy
Woy yoy yoy yoy, yoy yoy-yoy yoy

Troddin’ through San Juan in the arms of America
Troddin’ through Jamaica, a buffalo soldier
Fighting on arrival, fighting for survival
Buffalo soldier, dreadlock rasta

Woy yoy yoy, woy yoy-yoy yoy
Woy yoy yoy yoy, yoy yoy-yoy yoy
Woy yoy yoy, woy yoy-yoy yoy
Woy yoy yoy yoy, yoy yoy-yoy yoy

don’t ever say to a black person…”are’nt we all the same?” or “Isnt it just a skin color?” Because the answer is “no” and “no”

Jah bless you all, Ras-Tarfari

all four corners of the earth. Guidance and Protection, Iternal.

 


Rastafari: light of truth for all Nations

Posted on: September 17th, 2012 by • Sticky

I am a Rastafari woman. This was not a choice on my part, I was born this way. I am here to deliver a message. The message I have is for black people, with the reality of black slavery, black people need something to remind them of who they were before, who they are suppose to be, and to bring them back to their true way of life…loving the Almighty every day, and loving our selves.

Rastafari is a soul thing. I can only equate it to a computer that you get with all the programs already downloaded. It is out of my head, not my soul, not from my present download, that I am considering writing a book on “white Rastafari” I started to write it….I question how much to include slavery. If I write a book for white people and leave out slavery…then I wont be doing anybody any favours. Besides I feel that in order for whites to truly accept and receive the light of Rastafari they will need to know why the realities of the black struggle. If I leave this out, then I am not helping to close the gap of difference, and misunderstanding between black people and white people. Heres what it really boils down to. There are white people who already have the light of Rastafari, because they have chosen to. Then there are who know nothing about people of color. Some choose this way of life, other would like to learn more.

Because Rastafari is spiritual truth for all people, I decided I should choose to share my knowledge wisdom and awareness that Jah has given me, with all the world. It’s not good for people to live their entire life under a lie. I feel if white people know about Rastafari and follow it…perhaps their life will be more fulfilling more meaningful. One of the worst things a man can do, is to feel he knows everything already. This will only make him dumb.

My priority is to bring this light to black people…then to everyone else. Remember I was sent (born) to bring this light to black people. So, this is not some discriminatory choice that I am making.

It would be nice however it people would share with me what they would like to learn in such a book. I have my own Ideas, but i would love to know yours. Imagine a world without Racism. Really racism is just a lack of knowledge, and experience. Although some choose to be in this head space for whatever reason. Then others want to live a positive life, so they can feel clean and free in the heart. Ok I am rambling.

Jah Bless

Rastafari is the truth

Love and Light.

Excerpt from Rastafari Black peoples livity bible

5 Guidelines to Enter Holy Mount Zion

Honour and Respect Others

Honour and speak highly of those around you, Come Judgement day Jah will judge you based on how you treat and speak of others.

Resist Temptation

Resist temptation in Babylon. Temptation means opportunites to perform acts on behalf of Satan, each and every time no exception. Temptation comes in many forms.

  • Lust
  • Lying
  • Stealing
  • Cheating
  • Infidelity
  • Promiscuity
  • Addictions
  • Vulgarity
  • Swearing

Resist the urge to follow the ways of Satan, and embrace the way of The Most High. When you have the thought, to do these things, resist, and do something productive, and honourable in the eyes of Jah, the Almighty.

Honour Your Temple

Honour your Temple (your body), by eating clean foods, and resisting all forms of  sexual defilement, including sexual addictions. Jah does not like Immoral behavior or disrespect of his temple.

 Read your Bible Daily 1 hour

Read your bible daily for 1 hour, this will help you keep your mind on the concerns of the Almighty, instead of the concerns of Babylon. Jah finds favour with those whom tresure their bible and keep his word.

Avoid so called “Fun”

People are doing many things in the name of “fun.” “Fun” can get Rasta into trouble. Do not as Rasta…

  • Go to bars clubs unless it is Rastafari or Jamaican oriented
  • Gossip about others
  • Experiment with sex
  • Make fun of other people
  • Get into arguments with others
  • Stand up on the road side hanging out (idoling)

Rastafari are in the bible

As Born Rasta We have the Rastafari livity written on our hearts, we read the bible to raise our spiritual vibration, and to induce meditation. But there are many references to RAstafari and black culutre, I believe that were removed from the Christian bible over time.

 Instead of following the desires of Satan, concern your self with being productive and making a positive contribution to society as Rasta. As Rasta enjoyment means…

Bible study

  • Chattign with other Rasta
  • Building Rasta Buisness
  • Meditation
  • Contemplation
  • Cleaning the house (spiritual space)
  • Listenting to some Rasta Reggae Music
  • Teaching our Young ones the Livity
  • Watchin educational DVDs on black culture

Jah Say…

All with a clean heart are invited into Zion, but only those who Resist Temptation of Satan, and make rememberance of me each day may be able to enter Mount Zion. 

Just as the Christian bible says:  For many are called, but few are chosen.

Here is the table of contents for this book

  • Rasta Ital Cooking and eating
  • Your holy dreadlocks crown
  • 10 great black inventions
  • Employment
  • What is a Rasta
  • The Sabbath
  • Holy Mount Zion
  • Hmble living in Babylon
  • Selassie I divinity

Rastafari Book for black people to become Rastafari

Posted on: July 28th, 2012 by • Sticky

This book is way overdue. My apologies to all my up and coming black kings and queens.

Jah wrote it on my heart about 3 years ago to write a book such as this. The truth is I had the bones of the book done, but when I was through with it I felt that it was almost too powerful. Where I live in Toronto Canada, we get silenced. If you are not promoting homosexuality, or lying to people, in some way shape of form, in order to tell them what they want to here, you will be silenced. None of those things is what I am about.

The original book I wrote consisted of many things I learned about “other nations” by way of meditation and surfing the internet. I am not out to offend anyone. Not only that I just wanted this book to be high Quality. I want people to enjoy this book so much that they tell their friends. I want it to be the book on Rastafari for people of Color. I want this book to inspire black people to follow the faith. I knew I had to do a better job.

I started to rewrite the book after a good friend of mine told me something. He said dont you know there are Muslims in Jamaica. I immediately thought, there is no reason for that. Rastafari is for the Jamaican black people. I now have a Job to do. I wrote my book on that basis, but you will not get that feeling when you read the book. I want all black-skinned people with coily hair to know Ras-Tafari is the rightful faith for them as determined by the Almighty him self. It is the job of every black Rasta to bring the people to the faith. Some don’t want to do it on a larger scale, but truly it is our job.

I am doing my part by writing about Rastafari, others sing about it. We must deliver the message to the black people.

My book is called “Rastafari: Black Peoples Livity Bible” I am in love with the title, and so far I am in love with my book. I wanted to keep it positive so that people will enjoy reading it and maybe feel inspired by it. Here I will share some of the book with you.

 

Black is a shade?
 
I was having a conversation with a friend of mine, she is white and has been brainwashed into believe that white is superior. We had a conversation alone one day, then she tried to share her belief with a young black woman selling T-shirts on the street that “black white and grey” are all shades. I had to correct her. “Black is all colors combined!” (therefore it is not a shade) it is in fact a color. “It is the strongest color.” She had no more to say about the subject. We as black people must stop accepting the brainwash. Just because something is written in a book, doesnt make it true. Think beyond, and know that you must use common sense and wisdom to know the truth. This information was also given to me by the most high during one fo my meditation sessions.  
 
What I learned under meditation
 
One day when I had fallen under a deep meditation it was revealed to me that black people are the original, whole and complete human. I did ask for evidence or “proof” that this was true. The answer I received was. ” take a look at the other nations. They have your hue-man characteristics, in lesser degrees in variation.” It was revealed to me that Indian hue-mans have our skin complexion but to a lesser degree…asians, have dark hair and even wide noses….to a lesser degree…hispanics, are curvy and wavy to curly-haired to a lesser degree…caucasians have black features and characteristic the very least. Caucasions…tend to be straight in the body…lighter haired…with very fine in many cases thin lips and …the hair of black hue-mans is strong…and can stick straight up in the air in its natural un chemically altered form. the hair of other nations…tends to be limp…and hangy.
 
Positive Black References
To coily African black hair and black skin complexion
Say
  • Jah hair
  • coily hair
  • My Crown
In reference to our beautiful skin tone say:
  • High Melanin complexion
  • Jah skin
  • Honorable complexion
  • Royal complexion
 
Black self-esteem means, promoting positive black images in the home, being your self a positive black role model, and being a  supporter of black upliftment and natural black beauty. Only a Rasta who loves him self and loves his black identity to the fullest, and who walks next to Jah, will honor this guideline.
 
Many black Rasta who practice the faith to the fullest, feel a natural loving unity towards his fellow black man, woman, and child. It is important that you do the same once you begin to grow your “Holy Rasta Crown.” As Black Rasta it i important that we place your black brothers, sister, and children “on a pedestal.” Speak to you black brothers and sisters as if you are speaking to a King or a Queen…because essentially you are! Rastafari is a spirituality that practices unity WITHIN the black community.
 
As you can see I tried to keep everything positive. I have a job to complete. I will do it as much as possible while I am here. Loving my people.
Jah loves you too.
 
My book should be available no later than, mid September. Then not too longer later I will be moving to Jamaica, to continue the message.
 

I have some more Rasta books in mind

 

Here is some, of the table of contents for my new book “Rastafari” Black people Livity Bible.

Rastafari_Cover_for_Kindle2

 

I am writing a book. Well I have written a book, but I changed some things. I realize people like details, so I decided that details is what I will give you guys. The first book I wrote, How to become a rasta, was written for any body who wants to become Rastafari. But, deep in my heart I wanted to write a book, just for my people.

This book answers many questions, and provides information about what it really means to be “black.”  I look forward to the new book. Here is the table of contents that I am building now…

  • who is Jah
  • what is a Rasta
  • where is Jah
  • why you should choose Rastafari
  • Who should become a Rasta
  • Dreadlocks
  • What is Zion
  • How to live life to enter Zion
  • what is so special about Emperor Haile Selassie
  • 10 things you should start doing today as Rasta
  • 10 Things you must own as Rasta

I had the option to reveal the truth about black people vs white people, but I decided it was much more positive, to just tell black people the truth about who they really are. Life is full of twitsts and turns, not knowing who you are wont help you much. We as black people need to start uniting and lifting eachother up. Just because I write a book soley for my people, its not racism, Im just fullfilling the job I came here to do, deliver the message of truth to my people. Also black people have different social, spiritual, mental, and physical needs, I want to cater to these things. I want my people to take their rightful place by way of following the truth.

I am a black Rasta Empress, who lives black, loves black, represents black, supports black and promotes black.

Blessings and love to all. Jah Ras Tafari

Jah Jah was not sleeping during Slavery

Jah Jah is always watching

Every born Rasta knows, Jah Jah is always watching. Jah Jah is a black African, except he is in his spirit form, but he is still a black African. Just like when I become a spirit, I will still have been a Black African, therefore my likes my beliefs, my personality my hair texture will all be that of a Black African. Jah, Jah was not sleeping during slavery, in fact, he was connected to his people more than ever. I believe slavery only happened because black african people (my people) allowed them selves to be enslaved.


He created Rasta and Emperor Haile Selassie I the first

Jah works in ways most people are unaware of. For those of you out there visiting this sight for the first time. When I say Jah, I do mean God. There is only one. Rasta is here to share the word, the truth about Jah and black people. Jah created the birth of Emperor Haile Selassie I to inspire and awaken the black people. To share with the world, the truth of Jah. Emperor Haile Selassie is a life example of what Jah can do, Rasta are the enforcers, of the power of Jah and the life and message of Emperor Haile Selassie I.

im offended every fucking day of my life.

Please don’t come here and tell me you are offended,  cause I don’t care. I am offended every fucking day of my life. And don’t tell me what to believe or what to say regarding my spirituality. This is my website, this is my spirituality, and I am the one living this life. Please don’t tell me how to say what I am saying.

Jah loves his people so….

Rastafari is spirit that anybody can have inside. He sent Rasta here with a message. Yes Rasta can be any color, however Rasta are predominantly black. This is for a number of reasons I will not get into right now.

Jah is a complete and whole entity

    • Jah is a Black African
    • Jah has tightly coiled hair
    • Jah is a complete and whole entity

Black African people are the expression of the complete and whole hue-man.

    Black people are dark-skinned, with tight very tightly coiled hair. When you are creating something you need the ingredient to be in its purest, and strongest, most natural form, so that it can remain, and flavor, and color whatever it is that you are creating. If you use something weak, then your creation will be weak, and how can you make more of something with something that is incomplete. Black people have the juice, the Melanin, to reproduce, the hue- to make the hue man.

Slavery made Black people stronger

Slavery just made black people stronger and more resilient. Maybe even physically stronger too. We put all our faith in God, and came out a very God-fearing people, who could perform magic such as voodoo, and hoodoo, and other forms of magic, we needed this to defeat the white slave masters. Now our people have special “skills.”  Slavery in its own way is our (black people) own little gift.

 My new book on Black people

I am writing a book called “love your blackness” In there I get more in detail about the things written in this blog post. No where on this blog did I ever say that I was blogging for people to like me, or to make one group feel more secure with black people. If you feel insecure reading the truth, or learning or know the wrongs of your people, trying to silence me isn’t gonna do anything. The truth will follow you wherever you go.

No More Black Woman and Black Man Love Relationships?

Posted on: December 19th, 2011 by • Sticky
5

Was it just survival?

Do you think you could find more black man and black woman relationships in the 80s and before because it was an issue of survival? We as a people were still fighting for our rights so to speak during those times. I’m still not sure if I can say we are in the clear. But maybe a lot of black men and black women feel a lot more free pardon the pun, to be who they are and therefore feel like they don’t have to have a black person by their side helping them to fight the fight any more.

What about those who are single and black and who today want to marry within the black nation. Is this something of past. Are these people shit out of luck. If they are you can count me in.

More black men date white

More and more black men now days are opting to date and marry non black women. It makes for slim pickings for a woman like me who refuses to be with someone of a different ethnicity than her, Why you may be asking. Its something that is important to me. It’s who I am, carried, on. I want to mate black to produce black because I am so in love with my culture and my people.

More black women interracial date

Many black women are opting to date outside the black race to, however I feel their reasoning is a little different from the black mans. I feel many black woman are doing this because frankly the black men leave them no other choice since black men are no longer choosing to date black women and b a lot of black women are dating outside their race because they seem to mixing and mingling more outside of the black community and it is a common occurence to date interracial these days.

The matter of respect for black women

I feel like the interracial mixing between white men and black women is more underground, or less public and that the interracial dating and marrying of white women to black men is more mainstream. I feel like the black woman who dates out side of her race does not get the same respect as the black man who dates out side his race

I feel like the black woman is seen as a sell out, where the black man is seen as making the right choice and doing what every man should be doing. When I look at it from the outside. I feel the black woman benefits the most. But maybe that is just my own biased opinion, you figure it out.

what am I to the black man now?

Sometimes I wonder just exactly what I am suppose to be to a  black man who now exclusively sleeps with women non black. I actually have someone in my life like that now. It make for alot of arguments. I think he likes me as a friend because I am the only women in his life who doesn nto want to have sex with him.

I need a black Rasta man!

Being Rastafari, not just cause  a man is black it means I want him. Oh No! he must be Rasta. A true Rasta, and also not too tall please….lol then I may want him. This friend of mine is confusing, the whole friendship is confusing. We had a terrible argument the other day and I said some pretty bad things. oh well.

Black men hate black women now

There are black men nowadays that hate black women so much so they want to show black women how much they hate them. It happens to me all the time. I just turn my head. There are some white women who are extremely jealous of black women’s DNA. The whole thing is diabolical.

Are black men brainwashed?

I am a black woman who loves black, I seek to date and marry black. I don’t have any thing to prove to anybody. I love my self. I feel hurt that black men seek to date out side of their race and feel some how they are better than black woman or that they want to cause pain to black woman. All in all its their own self hate. This is brainwashing at its best folks.

King Selassie married black

What happened to the days of King Selassie and his wife Empress Menen. Another example of a black man and black woman who loved each other. King Selassie married Black. He is seen as a Role model to many Rastafari men.

White girls and Black Rastas

I was having a conversation with a white female friend of mine one day….she asked something I can’t remember the question, my reply to her was “I wont answer that” She said “Why cause true Rastas don’t date white girls…” I looked at her with absolute shock. I said oh my gosh who told you that. She said this girl she use to know. I was shocked to hear that out of her mouth. But then she kept say “right, right?” I told her “yes, real Rastamen do not date white women” she said see I know you don’t have to hide it from me. She said “why” I said “its to keep the blood lines pure”

In Rastafari we have believed in this for a long time. But from years ago you would find Rastamen who did date white women. But there are many who refuse. There are some who do it for financial gain but are not happy in the relationship. Then there are some who wont even let the thought enter their minds.

Which Rastas date white?

Anyway I just find it sad to see that more and more black men are opting not to date black women. the only men that I can see that date black women exclusively are Rastamen, and that’s only some of them. It seems the ones that come from the smaller islands date white women abundantly. Many Jamaican Rasta who live in Jamaica are still interested in black women.

hm well, everybody can do as they like, it is a free country and its 2011. Time for people to make their own decisions and choices concerning love. The time of Black Unity, has ended.



 

Peace and blessings to all who read this. Unity for all, Jah Ras Tafari


Rastafari, Book Writing, New Website, More Jah Truth

Posted on: December 11th, 2011 by • Sticky

Hello and Welcome to my Blog on Rastafari and Jamaican Culture. For those of you who don’t know me my name is Yuajah and I am a Rasta. Rastafari is my spirituality, my mission is to educate others on what it means to be a Rasta and to have self-pride self-love and self-awareness.

I am writing a new Rasta book

I am writing a new book. This is actually my second book. My first book is called “How to Become a Rasta.”  You can buy it as an e-book by clicking the link. My second Book is called “Rastafari, spirituality for African-Americans” or something very close to that. I wanted to let you know that, in case you were wondering why I havent created any new posts. I don’t want abandon my responsibilities. My master piece will be well worth the wait. “Rastafari, Spirituality for African-Americans.” Is my heart. It should be available online at amazon.com by late April 2012.

I have a new Rasta website

I have a new Rastafari website. Ok not a new website, but the old one made new. I am sure this is a shock for some people, because it was definitely a shock for me. lol. I hope you like the new design. It was very hard to select, and I wanted to make it just right for my site visitors. One cool thing about the new design is your can sign up to mingle with other members. Hopefully every is working smoothly with that. Just look on the top tool bar, to sign up.

More Jah truth

I have made a decision. I am not going to pussy foot around any more. I was pussy footing around before….but no more. I am going to blog about Rastafari the way that it is written on my heart. I wont say things to make people happy. Much of what I am gonna say is very controversial. Hey, maybe I will make more enemies than friends. On life to live right. I gotta be me. Please no I am not intentionally trying to hurt people. It’s just that I have a message to deliver, and if I keep “being nice” people will not get my point. Ok ok, I will be nice, I will just be selective about what I say. Just as the late great Bob Marley.

What is a Rasta?

A Rasta is someone who has knowledge about certain things in life. You are wondering what on earth I am talking about. Well one thing is thing. (belief) if you want to call it that. Your life should be your own. It was given to your by Jah to do as you like. Only you can stand before the Almighty at Judgement time. Many people do not appreciate my lifestyle. I think even those who know me, wonder “what is a Rasta” any way. It is not only about dreadlocks, it’s about living life, the right way, the clean way, the way Jah the almighty intended. I leave it there, I know my beliefs can sound radical to some, but they are mine and I stick to them. Not only that I have a responsibility to my ancestors to remind people of where they are coming from, and to educate others on my spiritual way of life.

That’s it!

That is mostly what I wanted to share with you. Check out the videos on the far right. Sign up to the jamaicanrastafarianlove.com online community, buy “How to Become a Rasta” and educate other with what you learn. Put love first in all things, remember Jah is watching….clean heart good intentions.

Jah Rastafari.

Rastafari Necklace: Big and Beaded, Red Yellow Green Black!

Hi guys. I recently got into beading my own rasta jewelry. I Started doing it for fun, but now I do it cause I find it so relaxing. I have made a big “Bongo necklace” lately that I just adore. Here are some photos of me wearing it.

Each black bead is 30mm long and 8mm in diameter. The whole necklace is about 1 foot and a half long. I brought 1 of these necklaces to my friends store…the necklace didn’t last 4 minutes in the store….the customer that came in behind me bought it right way. Wow.  Here is a picture of this Jah necklace against a black background.

This necklace has Rasta Colors in it. Red yellow and green and black beads. The black represents the black people of Africa, the red represents the love of the Rasta people and the blood shed of slavery. The green represents, the Rich Agriculture of the African land and Global Unity, The yellow represents the hot sunshine that makes the African land so hot and fertile, and also hope for love and peace for all people. I like to call this necklace my “Rastafari love necklace.”

The beads are big but the necklace is not heavy. Sometimes I forget I am wearing it. This necklace is very much an Ethnic, Tribal type necklace in look, but because of the color meanings it is Rastafari and Caribbean too.

Thanks for checking it out. Jah Bless.

10 Rastafarian Rules, Laws and Regulations

Posted on: February 12th, 2018 by

10 Rastafarian Rules, Laws and Regulations

Rasta Rules Book: paperback/eBook

Rastafarian Rule#1:  Rastafarians do not eat meat (beef)

” All the days that he separates himself to the Lord he shall not go near a dead body. He shall not make himself unclean even for his father or his mother, for his brother or his sister, when they die, because his separation to God is on his head. All the days of his separation he shall be holy to the Lord. “

 

The point of this bible scripture as it pertains to Rastafari is that once a Rasta grows his locks they are to remain spiritually clean by avoiding “dead things”….all dead things. Rastafari do not eat meat as we see it for what it is which is “dead flesh.”

 

Rastafarian Rule #2: Rasta must grow dreadlocks.

Dreadlocks Represent the faith of Rasta people. Its like the Cross of Christianity, or the crescent moon of the Islamic faith. Dreadlocks are a symbol of natural living, Love for the earth, and fidelity to Jah Rastafari. It also means a life that does not embrace vanity. Such as combing, the hair and visiting the salon for weekly primping.

 

“All the days of the vow of his separation there shall no razor come upon his head: until the days be fulfilled, in the which he separateth himself unto the LORD, he shall be holy, and shall let the locks of the hair of his head grow.”

144 Rastafarian Rules!

Rasta Rules eBook

Rasta Rules Paperback

Rastafarian rule #3: Rastafarian women must wear skirts/dresses only

“The woman shall not wear that which pertained unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman’s garment: for all that do so are abomination unto the LORD thy God.”

Rasta women wear skirts in honor of being a woman. We are the gender which carries life, and brings peace contentment and longevity to her husband and her household. Wearing skirts as Empress represents, one who acknowledges Gods differences in the creation of man and woman as the very creation of the continuation of life.

Rasta women wear skirts as part of her uniform. It represents professionalism of the faith which honors women as Mothers, daughters, and the emulators of Empress Menen, and confidant Wife of King Selassie I.

 

Rastafarian Rule #4: Rasta s cannot go to bars/clubs

Rasta people are not allowed to go to bars and clubs we view bars and clubs as Babylon. We do make the accepting if the bar or club is Rastafari focused otherwise Rasta people will usually leave a club or bar scene early, to head home where the environment calls for order and cleanliness. Rasta knows that if a Rasta goes against his faith, “once turns into 20” and  next thing you know, he/she will no longer seek Jah. We turn away from the bar and club scene as Tafari, to stay close to Jah.

 

Rastafarian Rule#5: Rasta’s cannot cut, trim,comb dreadlocks….this would be a n abomination.

“All the days of the vow of his separation there shall no razor come upon his head…”

 

A Rasta does not cut trim or comb his dreadlocks.

Rastafarian Rule #6: Rastas must not eat shellfish, or eggs, or drink milk!!!

  • Shellfish – These particular rules are not written. However Rasta know the purpose of shellfish is to clean the bottom of the ocean. Therefor shellfish are deemed “unclean” for Rasta to eat.
  • Eggs – Rasta does not eat eggs as we know chicken eggs are not what they used to be in terms of how chicken used to be raised. Rastas are completely vegan now.
  • Cows Milk – Rasta opts not to drink cows milk as we know we are the only animal that is drinking another animals milk. It’s nonsensical. We Rasta love to use soy milk as a cow’s milk substitute. There really is no difference, in terms of functionality and flavor in the cooking.

Rastafarian rule #7: Rasta women must cover dreadlocks in public

 

Rasta woman are under a different set of Rastafari Rules/meditation than Rasta men. We are aiming for modesty which draws us closer to Jah as we embrace self Respect and the spiritual aspect of our faith. Covering the dreadlocks is a symbol of fidelity, feminine power and respect for the one we emulate Empress Menen. A Rasta woman who does not cover her locks in public may be seen as “slack” and disrespecting the faith, and livity of Rastafari.

Rastafarian Rule #8: Rastafarian children are not allowed to watch TV.

Rastafarians are not allowed to watch television. We as Rasta parents understand that the television corrupts people’s thoughts and turns them away from thinking about God/Jah. Rasta children are encouraged to read books, create art work, create music, play and embrace physical activities outside, invent things such as games and things to help the environment, watch documentaries about great leaders, such as Martin Luther King, and spend time chatting with and helping family around the house. Rasta children are seen as expansive spiritual people, who will become leaders if raised to believe it, with the right foundation created early on in life

Rastafarian Rule #9: Rasta must not drink Alcohol!

“And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, When either man or woman shall separate themselves to vow a vow of a Nazarite, to separate themselves unto the LORD:He shall separate himself from wine and strong drink, and shall drink no vinegar of wine, or vinegar of strong drink, neither shall he drink any liquor of grapes, nor eat moist grapes, or dried. All the days of his separation shall he eat nothing that is made of the vine tree, from the kernels even to the husk.”

 

Rastafarian Rule #10: Rastafarian Women wear long skirts….as divine feminine

You shall make for them linen undergarments to cover their naked flesh. They shall reach from the hips to the thighs.” Hips to the thighs does not mean to the ankles, however we Tafari like to go the extra mile where Jah laws and rules are concerned. Rasta women wear long skirts with pride as a symbol of motherhood, sisterhood, and divine feminine. 

Thank you for reading this article.

Blessed Love.

5 Rules of Ital Rasta Food Cooking

Posted on: January 20th, 2018 by

5 Rules of Ital Rasta Food Cooking

#1 Rasta cook without… Salt!

Rasta does not cook with salt. If we must, we will use sea salt, as we feel it is healthier for the body, and natural like Jah intended. Rasta avoids the use of table salt at all costs.

 

 

 

 

 

 

#2 Rasta keep all food…..All natural

Rasta love to enjoy natural foods, and buy and shop organic. Foods that grow out of the earth such as Yam, or that grow on a tree such as apples, or on a vine such a pumpkin, are true Rasta Ital food classics. Rastas avoid eating food that is packaged or processed, such as canned fruits, food or frozen foods such as frozen plastic packaged french fries, Rasta love Zion natural foods.

#3 Good Ital Rasta food is… nutritious!

Nutrition is one of those Rastafari food laws many do not know about. Rasta avoid empty foods like donuts, too much white rice, or potato chips. Rasta enjoys high nutrition foods such as spinach, tofu, okra, lima beans, lentils, eggplant etc. Foods high in Iron such as spinach or broccoli, or  fiber such as apples, and oats, and other Vitamins and minerals are Good for Rasta holy temple….good for Jah.

 

#4 Rasta Ital food means…..No Meat!

Rastas are vegan….we do not eat….

  • Eggs
  • Fish
  • Meat/beef
  • Shellfish

Rasta love to eat vegan because it is our faith to eat vegan, but mostly because we are a faith that embraces life. Therefore we do not want anything dead on our food plate. Give Thanks.

#5 Rasta include lots of …Color and Flavour…in Ital food cooking….

When Rasta cook we aim to make the food fun and favourable to eat.

Here is an ideal ideal Lunch/dinner Rastafarian food plate ….

We typically eat in large portions because Vegan food can be very lightweight.

Be creative….. cooking Ital Rasta food

I made this quick post on Rasta Ital Food cooking, to inspire you to be experimental when cooking Ital Rasta food. It can be fun….and connects us more deeply to Jah the creator.

 

Blessed love.

Rasta Empress: Wife & Mother

Posted on: December 20th, 2017 by

Rasta Empress: Wife & Mother

Not ready yet, I just want to know if people like this or not…..Thanks.

A long time ago I started writing this poem called Empress Wife and Mother. It was so beautiful. I owe it to Jah Really. I was so impressed with the Poem, I thought maybe a book would be better. Maybe my Empress out there would appreciate such a book. I do not know here is some of what I am writing right now.

To be a single Empress is different from being a wife an a Mother. There may be some of my ladies out there that would appreciate the guidance. Maybe not, I do not know. but anyway here is some of what I am working on.

Wash your creases TMI!!!

I have met too many women who feel it is ok to jump out of bed in the morning put on some clothes put on some makeup and leave the house. Um no. I do that if it is the weekend…sometimes. But to do this for a whole week…huh? No when a woman wakes up in the morning the first thing she needs to do is get into the shower. Only Jah knows what builds up down below between those creases of in the back crease…lord. Shower in the morning please. It only takes five minutes. Your Kingman will appreciate it.

Wash your dreadlocks

Yes I know sometimes locks get so long we do not want to wash them anymore. But if you want to draw that strength from Jah, you have to wash your dreadlocks. You see caring for the locks is a part of having a relationship with Jah. eEerytime you twist your locks or show love to your locks Jah is there and he feels the love emanating from you. When you wash your locks as an Empress and your hair drys and you have that nice “I am all around clean” feeling, Jah feels it too. He loves you for that. Also King Selassie I  and Empress Menen know too. So wash your locks. Once your locks are clean and you have on some clean clothes usually after the Sabbath, this is a good time to hold a nice meditation.

Cleanliness of Heart as Empress

Rasta Empress are deep. We are not your average female of some average Religion. Rasta Empress knows that covering her hair makes her stronger as a person, and that Jah looks on her favorably as doing something just for him. Jah has a way of showing up for those who honor him, when they most need it. By covering your locks you are building a genuine life long relationship with the Most high. A clean heart includes…an Empress who is aware and an Empress who tries. A clean heart means, one who is free of wicked deeds. So when Satan approaches you as he does to us all, to not do something Jah has asked you to do (open the door for that old lady) they we must go against Satan and in favor of Jah. So not doing something for Jah is almost Just as bad as doing something for Satan. (watch that single mother struggle with her stroller up the stairs, and not help her) There are plenty of opportunities as an Empress to keep clean of deeds. Do not do wicked and embrace opportunities to let Rastafari shine. Jah appreciates it.

I love Red Kidney beans because

#3 pumpkin Ital Rasta food friendly

This is my #1 Ital friendly food because it is so versatile. You can have chunks for any meal and season them anyway you like. Moist or dry.

#7 Lentils Ital Rasta food friendly

  • Lentils are so versatile.
  • You can eat them with rice
  • lentils soup
  • Lentils mashed
  • Lentil stew with some onion garlic and curry powder.

Tasty Lentil Soup Recipe

I love to eat Lentils because they are high in fibre, high in protein, and are a very flexible option when maintaining an Ital food diet. Lentil soup is the best, because it has weight to it, and takes well to various seasonings and spices.

Ingredients & tools:

  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 onion, chopped (white, brown, yellow)
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 large carrot, chopped (about 1 1/4 cups)
  • 2 celery ribs, chopped (about 1 1/4 cups)
  • 2 cups / 400g dried lentils, green (or brown), rinsed and drained
  • 400g / 14 oz crushed tomato
  • 1.5 litres / 1.5 quarts / 6 cups vegetable or chicken stock / broth
  • 1/2 tsp each cumin and coriander powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp paprika powder
  • 2 dried bay leaves
  • Large pot
  • 1 lemon (zest + juice)
  • Salt and pepper

How to prepare

  1. Heat oil in a large pot over medium heat.
  2. Add your garlic and onion, and cook it for 2 minutes.
  3. Put in your celery and carrot. Cook it for 7 – 10 minutes or until your ingredients get soft. This step is the key to great lentil soup flavor, so take your time.
  4. Put in all the remaining ingredients except for the lemon and the sea salt. Then Stir it all up.
  5. Increase the heat and bring to a simmer.  There may be a build upon the top. Scoop the surface off (do this again during cooking if necessary). Place the lid on the top and turn the heat down to medium low. Cook for about 35-40 minutes or until lentils are soft.
  6. Thicken the Soup: using a whisk stir 2 or 3 times to thicken it.
  7. Add a little water if you want to thin the soup out.
  8. Season with a little sea salt and pepper (curry powder optional)
  9. Grate over the zest of the lemon into the pot.
  10. You are done.

How to find Jah Rastafari!

Posted on: December 14th, 2017 by

How to find Jah Rastafari!

Know that they are lying to you about Jah– God is not in the sky. Jah is with you. What they told you about God, so far, is to make money, and to make you belive you have to go through somebody else, or some organization to find him. These are all lies.

Jah is waiting on you – Jah is waiting on you. Jah loves you, he wants you. He wants to be in your life. He wants to be number one in your life. He is patiently waiting for you to say. “Jah my way does not work, my way lacks….I am ready to do all things your way….show me what you have for me!”

Seek him – Seek him. The bible says….

 

“Ask, and it will be given you. Seek, and you willrastafari, rastaman, rasta

find. Knock, and it will be opened for you.

For everyone who asks receives. He who seeks

finds. To him who knocks it will be opened.”

Jah is in Nature – In all things Jah is there. Give him praises, be with him in meditation, Go among nature, express Gratitude…Jah is there with you, enjoying your positive output. Praises, meditation, gratitude is all Jah Rastafari.

Stop eating meat: Salt, sugar, potato chips, dairy etc. – Eating meat dulls our Connection to source. Yes there are those who can eat meat and have the connection, but I say, to anyone who stops eating meat, and has a connection to Jah, his connection will become stronger. Your holy temple works easier when it is “lightweight” as opposed to “heavy weight” with digestion.  I cannot tell you the last time I ate some dairy, or some potato chips…. Praise Jah.

Know God owns a Kingdom – Jah owns a Kingdom. His Kingdom is known as “Heaven.” His Kingdom is clean, there are praises to him 24/7. The floors are Gold, Eveybody is happy and smiling, Jah Glory is everywhere. Jah Kingdom is not like this Kingdom. Know that Jah Kingdom is your truth. Claim your truth now. Find Jah now by serving him.

There is one truth – There is one truth. There really is folks. We have been lied to over and over. The stories of the bible are all about Kings, The Hebrews, their special diet, The God of Abraham, the Nazarites, Converstations with Jah…..Rastafari is in the bible. I am not saying become a Rasta, I am saying study the bible for your self. Allow Jah to reveal himself to you by your seeking…by your own scriptural studies.

Keep Praying – Jah loves when we communicate with him. Communication with Jah can happen through prayer, or just by sharing our thoughts and feelings with him silently. Jah is waiting people. Seek him, serve him, Jah is waiting on you. Study the bible with an open heart, seek and find Jah.

Blessed Love.

6 Ways to Honour Jah as a new Rasta

 

#1 Acknowledge him before you eat

Jah loves when we give him thanks. One of the ways to ensure that we are giving Jah thanks daily and on a regular basis is to give him thanks before and after we eat. Say a simple prayer before you eat. Before eating prayer to Jah:Thank you Jah for this food I am about to eat. Bless it so that is nourishes my holy temple and makes me strong. In Jah Rastafari name. I give Thanks.” Acknowledge him after you eat After eating Prayer to Jah: “Thank you Jah.” It’s that simple and that easy.

#2 Acknowledging him when you wake up

Jah loves when you say good morning to him. You can say “yes Jah” or “good morning Jah.” whichever one works best with your personality. The more we acknowledge Jah, the more he will acknowledge us.

#3 Wearing Red Yellow and Green Jewelery

Red Yellow and Green are the spiritual colors of the Rastafari livity. The Lion of Judah flag is Red Yellow and green, with Gold. Wearing these colors makes King Selassie I and Jah happy. It brings a feeling of Royalty and ancient love of Africa and the time of Jah first created man.

wearing Red yellow and Green is also another way Rastafari acknowledge Jah. This is also another way to tell the world that we are proudly loving Jah in Babylon. Most people associate red yellow and green with Jamaica, Rastafari and Bob Marley. So they like our Red Yellow and Green Clothing and accessories.

#4 Having a Photo of the King in the Home

one of the most powerful things you can do to honor Jah is to have a photo of His Imperial Majesty in the home. Also if you would like, you can include one of Empress Menen Also. Having this photo is an acknowledgement to Jah that you are aware of his wisdom to Raise up a King through the lineage of Judah who would be honored for years even after his reign. Jah loves when we love his elects.

#5 Feeding the Birds

This is going to sound so simple. Birds are Jah creations too. When we feed birds we feed Jah love. It’s almost like saying thank you to him. Also in feeding birds we act as Jah servants giving food to his creations in love. Jah always needs more servants.

#6 Not Watching Television

Television is a lie. Jah wants you to get into life. To love him, to honor him, to study the bible for your own personal awareness. Do not spend time watching TV. Notice how everybody wants to dress and talk the same?  To honor Jah, do not watch TV. Just meditate, clean, organize, sing praises and keep Jah at the forefront of all you do and all that you desire.

Give thank, King Selassie I.

Jah Rastafari Livity: Is it OK for a Rasta to eat meat?

A lot of people tell me “My Uncle is a Rasta and he eats hamburgers…therefor Rasta people are allowed to eat meat!” Yeah I have heard this plenty of times. I already know it is not allowed, but since people respect what is written in books, here is the text in the bible that states weather or not Rasta, people are  supposed to eat meat or not…..If you want to get to the point, the answer is at the bottom of this page highlighted in Italics!!!!

“Clean & Unclean” animals as Food

The Lord said to Moses and Aaron, 2 “Say to the Israelites: ‘Of all the animals that live on land, these are the ones you may eat: 3 You may eat any animal that has a divided hoof and that chews the cud.

4 “‘There are some that only chew the cud or only have a divided hoof, but you must not eat them. The camel, though it chews the cud, does not have a divided hoof; it is ceremonially unclean for you. 5 The hyrax, though it chews the cud, does not have a divided hoof; it is unclean for you. 6 The rabbit, though it chews the cud, does not have a divided hoof; it is unclean for you. 7 And the pig, though it has a divided hoof, does not chew the cud; it is unclean for you. 8 You must not eat their meat or touch their carcasses; they are unclean for you.

Clean and unclean creatures of the water and seas

9 “‘Of all the creatures living in the water of the seas and the streams you may eat any that have fins and scales. 10 But all creatures in the seas or streams that do not have fins and scales—whether among all the swarming things or among all the other living creatures in the water—you are to regard as unclean. 11 And since you are to regard them as unclean, you must not eat their meat; you must regard their carcasses as unclean. 12 Anything living in the water that does not have fins and scales is to be regarded as unclean by you.

Clean and unclean birds

13 “‘These are the birds you are to regard as unclean and not eat because they are unclean: the eagle,[a] the vulture, the black vulture,14 the red kite, any kind of black kite, 15 any kind of raven, 16 the horned owl, the screech owl, the gull, any kind of hawk, 17 the little owl, the cormorant, the great owl, 18 the white owl, the desert owl, the osprey,19 the stork, any kind of heron, the hoopoe and the bat.

20 “‘All flying insects that walk on all fours are to be regarded as unclean by you. 21 There are, however, some flying insects that walk on all fours that you may eat: those that have jointed legs for hopping on the ground. 22 Of these you may eat any kind of locust, katydid, cricket or grasshopper. 23 But all other flying insects that have four legs you are to regard as unclean.

24 “‘You will make yourselves unclean by these; whoever touches their carcasses will be unclean till evening. 25 Whoever picks up one of their carcasses must wash their clothes, and they will be unclean till evening.

26 “‘Every animal that does not have a divided hoof or that does not chew the cud is unclean for you; whoever touches the carcass of any of them will be unclean. 27 Of all the animals that walk on all fours, those that walk on their paws are unclean for you; whoever touches their carcasses will be unclean till evening. 28 Anyone who picks up their carcasses must wash their clothes, and they will be unclean till evening.These animals are unclean for you.

29 “‘Of the animals that move along the ground, these are unclean for you: the weasel, the rat, any kind of great lizard, 30 the gecko, the monitor lizard, the wall lizard, the skink and the chameleon. 31 Of all those that move along the ground, these are unclean for you. Whoever touches them when they are dead will be unclean till evening. 32 When one of them dies and falls on something, that article, whatever its use, will be unclean, whether it is made of wood, cloth, hide or sackcloth. Put it in water; it will be unclean till evening, and then it will be clean. 33 If one of them falls into a clay pot, everything in it will be unclean, and you must break the pot. 34 Any food you are allowed to eat that has come into contact with water from any such pot is unclean, and any liquid that is drunk from such a pot is unclean. 35 Anything that one of their carcasses falls on becomes unclean; an oven or cooking pot must be broken up. They are unclean, and you are to regard them as unclean.36 A spring, however, or a cistern for collecting water remains clean, but anyone who touches one of these carcasses is unclean. 37 If a carcass falls on any seeds that are to be planted, they remain clean. 38 But if water has been put on the seed and a carcass falls on it, it is unclean for you.

39 “‘If an animal that you are allowed to eat dies, anyone who touches its carcass will be unclean till evening. 40 Anyone who eats some of its carcass must wash their clothes, and they will be unclean till evening.Anyone who picks up the carcass must wash their clothes, and they will be unclean till evening.

No Meat is for Rastafari to eat!!!

41 “‘Every creature that moves along the ground is to be regarded as unclean; it is not to be eaten. 42 You are not to eat any creature that moves along the ground, whether it moves on its belly or walks on all fours or on many feet; it is unclean. 43 Do not defile yourselves by any of these creatures. Do not make yourselves unclean by means of them or be made unclean by them. 44 I am the Lord your Jah; consecrate yourselves and be holy, because I am holy. Do not make yourselves unclean by any creature that moves along the ground. 45 I am the Lord, who brought you up out of Egypt to be your Jah; therefore be holy, because I am holy.

46 “‘These are the regulations concerning animals, birds, every living thing that moves about in the water and every creature that moves along the ground. 47 You must distinguish between the unclean and the clean, between living creatures that may be eaten and those that may not be eaten.’”
