How to Be a True Rastafari

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

religionForget 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.

Rastafari is 3 things very simple….

  • The truth of Mankind
  • Truth of Self
  • Truth of Jah (God)

Not complicated not religion, no set prayer times….Just follow your heart.

 

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.

Incorporate 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.

Natural Living

Rasta lives natural. When I was 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.

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.

 

 

 

 

 

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.

 

 

 

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.

Grown your Natty and be proud

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.

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.

Thanks for reading….Do not forget to check my book “How to become a Rasta.” Jah Rastafari

Jamaican Men Stereotypes

sexy jamaican mandating Jamaican men… whats it like?

Jamaican men are just like any other guy. Only they are Jamaican. If you have never been with a Jamaican man before then it will be something different and perhaps exciting. Dont let his sexy accent fool you. He is like every other guy out there. True the Jamaican man has a nice sexy accent, but you must remember he is only human. He is not the Jamaican version of  a Greek God. It is easy for women to feel this way around them, when they are not used to them.

Are all Jamaican guys users?

No, not all Jamaican men use all women, and some Jamaican men only use certain women because they know they can. Many Jamaican men have been raised with a very strict set of values and morals, that they don’t intend to ignore.

Are they all good in bed?

Not every Jamaican man is good in bed. Some are some are not, just like any other man of any nationality. Jamaican men have a reputation for being Kings in the bedroom…Most are…but not all.

Do all Jamaican men ask women for money?

A Jamaican man has never asked me for money a day in my life…but perhaps if he was dating you he might do it. Every Jamaican man is different depending on the woman in question. In Jamaican Culture it is ok for the man to ask his woman for some time…but if they have only Just met…and do not live together or have a children together, then it is considered not ok.

Jamaican men work too you know….!

Many Jamaican men have jobs just like everybody else and so there is no need to ask for money. I know Jamaica is considered a third world country, but a lot

are all jamaican men promiscuous
Jamaican men sure are sexy

of people in Jamaica work too. So, not every Jamaican man is out to make a quick buck off a woman….!

Do all Jamaican men date white women?

Not every Jamaican man dates white women, but some do….Jamaican men can love and date whoever they want. I know some Jamaican men who date white women exclusively, I know one Jamaican man who dates both black and white women, and I know a few who choose to date just black women…its the personal choice and preference of the Jamaican man.

Are all Jamaican men well endowed?

Many Jamaican men are well endowed. I as a woman have no explanation for this…except to say…Jamaica itself is blessed, and therefore the people are also blessed. Keep in mind for some this may be uncomfortable…LOL. So, being in a relationship with a well endowed Jamaican man is not always a Joy. Trust me!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

 

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.

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.

Unity

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.

Always 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.

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.

Just rambling negativity

rasta lion
rasta lion, lion of judah, rastafari

Just talking all kinds of nonsense. Jah Jah is the light. Unforturnetly I have disappointed him. I have also pleased him. I represent no one else. Because of my relationship,  Babylon and me do not get along. Many people have turned against me because I refuse not to speak the truth from my perspective. I dont like dishonety. If you are what you are, be who you are but dont call it something else…because you want people to see your coruption in a positive light.

If you want to be a prostitute. Be the best prostitue in the land. But dont go to church every other Sunday and pretend like you love Jah. I am just understanding that I have a different mind than most people. Can you believe all this time, I really thought people knew what I do but just wanted to deny it. Now I know I see the world very different than others. No wonder much of what I have to say is met with silence. I already know the songs I make I cannot sing infront of just anybody. I cant wait to live in Jamaica, and be surrounded by peple who understand me….Rastafari people I am talking about.

I am a Rastafari woman. A very rare thing. I am only now starting to see my self as special. Jah is my everything. I love life – when I am in Jamaica. Life in Canada Toronto here for me is Not so great. Wow. I only realized that now. However Jah make it a lot easier, when I keep his commandments and show love regardless of my own disappointments in society.

I recently met a Jamaican girl. Every comment she gave me was physical. Things like this frustrate me. Life is more than the physical. Does nothing else matter to her. Its just men and dressing up? Man…I realize Jah is only important to me….not to many…at all.

Hmm lets see which one of my songs can I share…ok here is my latest one…I only have the course though

 

 “Looking in my face”

You are dying to get into my mind

Jah Jah know I am not of your kind

You keep on looking in my face

wondering what I am doing in your place

My spirituality spans all time

My natty dreadlocks confuse your kind

You keep on looking in my face

wondering what I am doing in this place

This is how I feel when I go out and my locks are not covered. I have certain people who are dying to get into my mind. But they cant! Jah gave me a gift and no matter how much they try…they will never have what I have nor will they understand my mind.

I am not as angry as I used to be not living in Jamaica yet. But I will get there. I dont want anybody to even mention the word Canada to me. Oh boy. I am sorry.

Here is antoher song…

“Back a Yard”

Life in Babylon is so hard

Every day I pray

Me soon go back a yard

Me miss me Granny House

And me Grandfada Farm

Di likkle breeze blowing through the window

even though it did warm.

Me did have me likkle friend dem

Whe me play wid a mornin

Dem neva did care

seh me come from one place called foreign.

Jah is love, Jah is truth. Only Jah can set me free and give me the everlasting peace I seek in this life and the next. Love and Blessings to all.

Jah – Rastafari.

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

black jesusI 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.

White Jesus Christ

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

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.

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….

Leonard Howell – Wikipedia.com

‘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.

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.

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

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

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.

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

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.

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.

own personal experience and you can draw your own conclusions. But before I do I want to tell you a little about me. My name is Empress Yuajah, that is my Rasta name. I am a Rastafari woman who currently resides in Toronto, but my desires is to live in Jamaica by the end of 2013. I have been Rasta from conception but didn’t accept this part of my self completely until about age 31. I am a full-time blogger and Author, also a song writer.  Lets get to it!

White women offended by my honesty

I have written articles in the past about why black men date white women. I noticed white women just get offended and want to tell me off. I wish they would say, thank you. Thank you Empress for your honesty. Because nowhere else am I gonna get the advice of a Jamaican woman who understands the mind of Jamaican men and who will tell me the truth about the motivations of some Jamaican men. But anyway, I have since looked at that page again. I saw that one white women commented without going into a rage. So I will put that page entitled “Why black men date white women – a black womans perspective” back up on my blog. Let it be.

I guess white women see this heading in the search engines and expect to find things like

  • White women have skin like angels
  • hair like silk

Instead I’m calling a spade a spade and they don’t like it. Don’t get me wrong, I think interracial love is beautiful, I haven’t been with a black man in 10 years myself. It’s just that some of the motivations of black men, concerning dating white women, concern me.

I then wrote dating a Jamaican man 12 things women need to know. It’s mostly about having a Jamaican man living in Jamaica, and what you need to know before you start making plans to bring him to America or Canada or before you move down there.

My own Jamaican Man experience

I went to Jamaica in February of 2012. I met a very sexy and very handsome tall Jamaican man. He looked like an Angel sent straight from heaven. To be honest at first I wasn’t so attracted black man black womanto him because I figured a guy like that could never be trusted. Eventually I had to come back home to Canada. So we began corresponding on the phone. 8 months!!! We talked on the phone for 8 months, everyday and I shared my heart and soul with him. One day, he stops calling me. Christmas went by and he didn’t even call me to see if I was alive or dead. At first I was devastated. I felt depressed and pissed off. But I knew somehow deep down inside my self that if I would just allow time to heal my heart, there were some good things to come for me. So that is what I did. When I took the time to think about everything, I realized he was just out to use me, and I am a Jamaican.

Why Beware?

I mentioned in the title for white women to beware because, If I am a Jamaican woman, and something as ridiculous as this can happen to me. Then for someone who is totally clueless about Jamaican culture and experiencing Jamaican culture, by getting to know a Jamaican man for the first time, then her journey has many risks so to speak. If you think I am making this up because I want to make white women look stupid, I am not. Just read my article How to date a Jamaican man and you will read over 100 comments from women having experiences with Jamaican men. Mostly negative.

My advice to white women dating Jamaican men.

My advice to white women dating Jamaican men. Beware. Proceed with caution. Jamaican men can be very alluring. I am not saying there are not good Jamaican men, there are! But if you are a foreign woman, like me, then we need to be cautious and know some things. Read my 12 things women need to know about dating a Jamaican man. I have to get it back up online. It’s just a few bucks. It’s worth it if you are dating a Jamaican man living in Jamaica and you plan to marry him and bring him abroad. Just wanted to let you know. White women have to be extra careful. Why, because you may be playing with a wolf wearing sheep’s clothing and not know it. It happened to me, it can happen to you.  A Jamaican man can use you and break your heart and many times you wont see it coming. Just wanted you to know. Yes not all Jamaican men do this to women, but some do.



Jah Bless

Rastafari Lives. Love.

Jamaican Rastafari Empress Diary

“Today” – October 31 2012 (Halloween)

today it rained all day.

today while I was getting dressed, I took a moment to ask my self, how can I enjoy to the fullest the day today.

don’t think about yesterday, don’t wonder what is to come tomorrow, just enjoy today.

Today I had a wonderful day.

“yesterday” – October 31 2012 (Halloween)

yesterday I wrote a song while I was brushing my teeth

brush your teeth, everyday

stay away from tooth decay

you will be a better adult

if you get cavities it will be your fault…

that was yesterday.

“I ponder”…- October 31 2012 (Halloween)

I ponder so many things, mostly having to do with ethnicity.

Some people really don’t see color. But most of really do.

I am guilty.

I ponder…why certain people think I need them to make decisions for me concerning my life.

when they have not even a clue what its like to be me

they chalk me up to ‘stupid’ otherwise they wouldn’t think I need them, would they?

just ignorance…really.

“I had a good day today”- October 31 2012 (Halloween)

I wrote a poem

I chose a domain name for my new website

I had good conversation over lunch

I decide u make money by giving people what they want

I listened to my favorite song ‘caution’ by Bob Marley

I realized not all people think the same

I am a little tired but I had a good day today.

“Rastafari a Curse?” – November 1st 2012

I used to think being born Rastafari was a curse.

because no body understood me I felt like a freak.

Now I know there is no bigger honor among men.

Jah bless me every day.

I must do what I know is right as Rasta Empress. This is the one and only way I can find happiness in a very corrupt system that is against all that I stand for, Rastafari.

Sometimes I wish my people could feel even a fraction of what I feel.

The love that I have for Jamaica, the way  I feel so blessed to stare at a  Jamaican mountain, the way I feel clean clear and free, when I even think of a Jamaican beach. Jamaica is my home, the home I never lived in, but know in my heart Jah destined me to live there.

When I am having a bad day, I play the song caution by Bob Marley and all of a sudden I feel 100 percent. It makes me think of driving really fast in a Jamaican mini bus, with all the windows wound all the way down, and the hot Jamaican air blasting in my face. Could there really be any thing better than that? Well yes…going to a Jamaican night club in Jamaica that plays only Rasta Reggae music, and watching all the people move rhythmically the same, but all doing a different dance…this makes me high,. I also enjoy watching the women hold their beer in their hand while they whine slowly to the nice roots rock and reggae. Jah knows I love Jamaica. He made me that way.

It’s not good to work for Satan. Jah made me born with the formula of how to get into heaven,. Can you believe I don’t practice it – for now anyway. I miss those days. But as long as I know it…I am aware of it when a violation comes into my path, that’s most important.

the other day I was getting all excited and ready to start watching a horror movie, it was called, scary or die. So I put the movie in my laptop…It started out that these three people were driving in a pick up truck…then they stopped and had some immigrants hidden and bound in the back of the truck. They proceed to let them out and let them run across the border aimless in the hot heat…then one guy that was in the truck, shot and killed the first older man who started running….that is when I decided that this movie wasnt for me…but I did watch some more…then they shot and killed the other mexican immigrant too. The blood even though I know it was fake disturbed me. Rastafari does not allow me to watch such things. Too much corruption for the mind, I then took the DVD out and called it a night. I

am just rambling any way. I had a nice day today though. I can’t see for the life of me what time I will fall asleep tonight. I am so wound up for some reason.

The Rasta prayers are intended to activate the powers of the Most High, to help one find help and healing during a time of distress, need or comfort. The names of “King Selassie I,” “Empress Menen” and “Jah” are the equivalent of saying “Jesus Christ” and “God” in Christianity. These names are used to invoke high, clean, positive constructive, spiritual energy.

The Bible Psalms

Self Love

‘Jah Jah, right now I am not feeling much self love. But I know Jah Jah you made me in your image. Please Jah, help me to see my self the same way that you see me. For I know in your eyes I am a perfect beautiful being.’

Jah made me complete, Jah made me whole. Therefore in his eyes I am perfect. Today I will love my self and see my self Just as The Almighty Creator does – as His masterfully created beautiful perfect being.

 —

Loss

‘Jah Jah you see the loss that I am facing, and you know how this loss has effected my heart. Jah please give me relief from this loss, help me to see each day anew, and instill in me forward perspective.’

Jah Jah sees and knows all things. He wants me to depend on me. In the past I have suffered a loss, but now with the guiding light and love of Jah The Almighty, I am looking forward to a brand new day and more opportunities to be an instrument of Jah. Sometimes loss, is an opportunity to work for Jah the Almighty, in disguise.

 —

Anger

‘Jah Jah, please remove these feelings of anger from my heart. Please fill me with your living light so that I may be uplifted and free. Jah Jah, walk with me each and every day that may be a clear example of your love in action.’

Jah Jah made me to live in love. In him I put my faith and trust. Anger cannot stay where the love of King Selassie I, and Jah the Almighty thrive.

Broken heart /Break up

Jah Jah, you have always been my guide. I am suffering a broken heart. Please Jah send me a healing for my heart, that I may start to feel a new.

Jah created me whole, even with a broken heart, I am a whole and complete being. I look to Jah to fill me up, for he is my unlimited everlasting source of love.

 —

Enemies

“Jah Jah right now I have an enemy. ….is his her name. This person is causing a disruption in my life and my thinking patterns. Jah Jah, I leave vengeance up to you, for in Romans 12:19 you said ‘…vengeance is mine I will repay.’

I put my faith and trust in Jah that in his time and in his great wisdom, he will rectify the situation hand with my enemies. Jah Jah is the great equalizer.

 —

Healing

“Jah Jah, you see and you know my heart. Right now I need some healing, oh Most High. Please, heal my heart. Plant your seed of renewal and hope inside my heart dear Jah. In your name, I seek healing to start a new.”

Jah Jah is the creator, he sees and knows all things. He wants me to cast my troubles upon him, he has the power to heal me. All my faith and trust is in Jah the Almighty.

Fresh Start

‘Jah Jah, Just like you created the Garden of Eden to bloom a new, I ask Jah Jah for a fresh new start. Bless me so that my mind nor my heart will not be weighed down by troubles or concerns of the past. Bless me so that I may look forward to taking a new step forward, on a brand new horizon.’

Jah Jah, is the creator, he builds a new. By the birth of new born babies to the rise of a new sun each day. I know he is constantly serving humanity, with his love and his new beginnings.

Overwhelmed

‘Jah Jah, I am feeling overwhelmed at this time. I know all things come to “pass.” Therefor I ask that you please lift this feeling of being overwhelmed from me, until this time has passed. Bless me Jah, that I may feel free, and light, once again.’

Jah Jah, created me, he never leaves me alone. I cast all my troubles upon him, for he has the Almighty power to handle all that I with human abilities cannot.

 —

Hopelessness

 

‘Jah Jah at this time I am feeling hopeless. Please help me to feel a new. Place it in my heart that all that is happening around me is happening for your Higher Purpose. I remain steadfast, that you are watching over all things Jah Jah.’

Jah Jah, I know you designed my for greatness, I will remain steadfast, until the tide has turned.


Feeling Unloved

‘Jah Jah, please help me. I am feeling unloved. Jah Jah, I know you never leave me, I know your presence, is everlasting. I know you are always there and hear my every request, for I am your child.’

Jah is the Almighty. He has powers and abilities to heal and help me. Jah has the ability to love and accept me, in ways that no human can. In Jah I am always loved.

 —

Addiction(s)

‘Jah Jah, you see and you know my heart. Jah please help me to turn my addiction to …around. Please eliminate the urge to ….from my heart mind and body, oh Jah. You are the great creator and the great healer.’

Jah knows Satan has many temptation in our path, with the love and light of Jah all can be over come, I trust the Almighty, to release Satan’s hold on me… and to release me from this addiction.

Sexual Temptations

‘Jah Jah, please remove these lustful thoughts, feelings and desires from me. Help me to walk in your light of self control, Self love, and Self Confidence. Please Jah Jah bless me to start a new.’

Jah, gives me self control, Jah gives me self love, I need not be temped by lust and promiscuous sins of Satan.

 —

Protection

‘Jah Jah, you hold the light. The light of truth. Please protect me oh Jah from….’

Jah Jah, holds the power of the light of truth and love in all things. In Jah light, as long as I have a clean heart, his light surrounds me and protects me from evil day and night.

Self Improvement

‘Jah Jah, when you made me I was perfect, please put me on the path to become more like the day you made me. In you Jah Jah I seek to improve my self, please put your hand on my heart in order that I may fulfill this desire.’

Jah Jah loves me and wants me to be my best at all times, with his love, and guidance, self-improvement is inevitable.

Rastafari: light of truth for all Nations

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
  • Religion vs. Rastafari
  • Christianity and Rastafari
  • 10 things…
  • Selassie I speech
  • Marcus Garvey speech
  • malcom x speech black unity

Rastafari Book for black people to become Rastafari



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.

Rasta Book – Rastafari: Black peoples 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

sorry I traveled to Jamaica…but im back!



I am so sorry to everyone that wondered WHAT THE HECK, happened to this website? I was away, I traveled to Jamaica in February. I was told on very short notice that I had this ticked (one day actually) and so I did not get a chance to wrap all my projects the way that I would have liked to. Oh my goodness, imagine one day to prepare for something you have been wishing for for 3 years. Here is a list of some things I had to do before I actually went to Jamaica.

  • go to the bank
  • call the company running my website and make a payment
  • call the company hosting my website and make a payment
  • go shopping for summer clothes and shoes
  • clean the house
  • buy some gift for my family memebers
  • do my laundry
  • pack for the trip
  • buy a new suitcase
  • …and so much more. Out of that whole list, I think, I only went to the bank, did my laundry, and packed for the trip u sing a very old suitcase, and oh yeah I cleaned the house too.  Clearly I did not have enough time to call the company running my websit and make a payment.  (I will post some pics and video soon) or visit my youtube channel

New book out! How to date a Jamaican man

So I should probably tell you about my new e-book, its called “how to date a jamaican man” it was inspired by my trip to Jamaica, and a fantastic friend/lover I met when I was down their. I was also inspired to write this book because of an article I wrote on this website with the same name, that so many people wanted to read. I figured…” why not do a book?” I thoguht that way I could include a lot more detail on Jamaican culture and the Jamaican mans way of thinking and of course his upbringing.

I have been doing a lot of black writing lately

I have been doing a lot of black writing lately. what does that mean? It means I seem to be drawn to write books that are about my people,  mainly to help to open our eyes. I did enjoy writing how to date a jamaican man, however i feel my purpose is something “higher” than this. I am enjoying my roots and and culture and my spirituality.

The Almighty gives me my direction…

I asked The Almighty about what I am soppose to be doing, (i am feeling weird in this moment) and what he told me shocked me, to think I have been given such responsibility. I mean I am happy, but I am terrified. The only way I can explain it is. This must be the way Obama felt when he realized he was actually going to be the one running the country. I mean it is certainly something I want to do, but the thought of actually doing it over whelms me. By the way, if there is anything in particular you would like to see on this website, anything in particular you would like me to write about you can always leave it in the comments. Back to what I was saying. I think since “he sees and knows all things” I will go ahead with what he has asked me to do.  I am scared shitless!

Rastafari book still to come

I have a book on Just Rastafari. It is very extensive, this is the main reason it is taking me so long to write it, plus the unexpected trip to Jamaica. But I am working on it and I am enjoying reading. I really do hope people like it. It is still coming please be patient with me.

Spirituality and more, Jamaican Website

I have a new website, but there is nothing there right now. Its called Jamaicanspiritualist.com. You will have to visit to find out what it is all about. i really do like sharing my spiritiuality and other things with you guys. Lifes good especially, when you be your self. Dont forget to read “how to become a rasta” now available as an e-book on amazon, as an instant download to your computer or kindle. In how to become a rasta you will learn…

Learn the ways of the Rastafarians, How to cook, pray and meditate like a Rasta. Find out what deep Rasta men are not allowed to do. The black King of Ethiopias’ (Emperor Haile Selassie) appeal to the leage of Nations.

I will write some more about my trip to Jamaica in a different blog post. I love Jah, and I love Jamaica. I have a lot to tell you. Mostly about how I felt as a Rastafari woman living in North America her whole life and finally going to the place that I have always known is my home. Until next time. Keep loving. Live as black African, this truth belongs to all of us.

Jah bless me, and Jah bless the whole world.

Rastafari lives.

Rastafari, Book Writing, New Website, More Jah Truth

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.
