Jah Rastafari Loves you: 5 things Jah Wants from you!

Jah Loves you

Jah loves you and he He wants 5 Basic things from you.

the-rastaman-book-cover-image-2jpg

  1. life as a rasta womanTo live his way of lifeJah Way of Life is called “Rastafari.” It was called “The Nazarite Vow,” in biblical times” To live as Rasta is easy. Read my books. Rasta Way of life, Life as a Rasta Woman to learn more. Basically you will eat “clean foods” lock your hair, and treat people with The same respect you desire. Fair enough, right?
  2. To be loving towards your brother – Love your neighbour and other nation people as if they are your brother and sisters. They are your siblings under the name of Jah Rastafari. This is one of the 10 Commandments. “The most important one,” answered Jesus, “is this: ‘Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no commandment greater than these.”
  3. rasta_meditation_han_cover_for_kindleTo Keep his Sabbath – This is the part most people fail to understand. The Sabbath is a Day just for Jah. One should Honour it and keep it holy. Jah will reward you I promise. You will only know this after you do it consistently. EVERY time after I keep the Sabbath, something good happens in my life, without fail. In my book on Rasta meditation, I talk about the forgotten “spiritual side” of Rastafari.
  4. To not worship, nor keep any “other Gods” – Jah does not like when his children believe in other Gods, or keep other beliefs, or have idols in their home, or in their way of life. Do not do this.The bible says he will let go and turn us over to our own devices, if and when we do this.
  5. Rasta_Way_of_Life_Cover_for_KindleMake him #1 in your life in all things each Day. – Make Jah number one. Read your bible, give him thanks for all the things that make you happy, every day. Give thanks for all the things you know you could not live without, like fresh air, food, nature, family etc. Jah loves to be number one, he will take care of you, if you show him that you place him, and acknowledge him as “number 1” in all Things. Some examples praying over your food to Jah, asking him to bless the food before you eat it. When you enter your home, give him thanks, when you wake up in the morning, give him thanks again. These suggestions are simple,  but Jah loves the Honour so much, he will acknowledge and honour you back.

 

Please support my cause and help me to feed the homeless. Purchase one of my Lion of Judah designs. HAVE A BLESSED DAY.

How to Tell if someone is Rastafari


 

how to tell if someone is Rasta

You may be wondering how you can tell if someone is a Rastafari, well here are 10 points to help you out.

#1 Rastas do not eat meat!

Rastafari people does not eat Meat. Rastafari are Vegan. We have been “encouraged” or “guided” by Jah not to ingest, “dead Flesh!” To learn more read my book “Rastafari Beliefs and Principles.”

 

heart fill#2 Rasta show Love and respect for you

Rastafari are full of love. This is why they tend to show a lot of love and respect for their friends and family members. They like to be helpful, and considerate. They like to know that others around them are comfortable and feeling good. Rastas do things such as help people with (grocery) bags, offer to talk if a friend is feeling blue, or listen when a family member wants to share feelings about their day. Love and “Raspect” is what Rasta are here to provide…because we work for Jah.

#3 Rasta Read the bible often

Rasta read the bible. It makes them feel complete in their souls. The words of Jah, a Rasta closest friends, fills them with Joy, and reminds them of their duties and their spiritual destiny. If a person is a Rasta, they will likely read and talk about what is written in the bible with you. This is because the King James Version Bible is a Rastafari favorite book.

#4 Rasta mention God or Jah A lot

black jesus3Rastafari people believe in God, Many call him “Jah.” Rasta are concerned about Judgement. A time when Jah will determine ones spiritual destiny based on the deeds he performed in his lifetime. Rasta try to live “clean” in all areas of life. Some examples are, no swearing, no physical Fighting, no putting other people down etc. This is how Rasta stay on the safe side, in order that Jah will determine a Judgement of “peace and rest” for Rasta.

#5 Rasta try to stay away from sins of the earth

Rastafari steer away from the sins of the earth. Rasta knows we are living in Babylon. Babylon is a place that has little to no regard for Jah, and his Holy book. Rasta try to keep away from Lust, Lies, Gossip, fornication, adultery, pornography etc. If a person is a Rastafari, these things are displeasing to the soul of a Rasta.

#6 Rasta believe in Satan

Rastas speak of Satan. Rastas understand that there are 2 forces on the earth, Satan and his demons, which is wickedness, such as lying stealing, jealousy, division, etc. And, Jah and his Angels, which is Love, such as telling the truth, being kind and considerate of the feelings of others, working for “your own” in life, and Unity and love with other nations. Rastas know Satan is real, so Rasta have a keen awareness of Satanic behaviors, and mindsets, and try to stay away from these as much as possible.

 

#7 Rasta wear their hair in Dreadlocksbobmarleytribute

Rasta wear dreadlocks. Dreadlocks are the symbol of Jah and Rastafari upon a mans or a womans head. Its something every Rasta is spiritually asked to do. Dreadlocks mean…”I love Jah, and I strive for clean living…” Bob Marley was a Famous Rasta Reggae Musician. He wore his hair is big beautiful natural Dreadlocks, and was he ever good-looking. LoL.

 

#8 Rasta Love Red Yellow & Green

Rastafari love the colors Red Yellow and Green together or even separate. We Rasta usually sport some type of Red Yellow and Green beaded Rasta Jewelry. Such, as a necklace, a bracelets or Earrings. Rasta love these colors as they symbolize His Imperial Majesty of Ethiopia. Makes me feel good just thinking about “Red Yellow and Green.”

#9 Rasta knows a lot about African Culture

africa ethiopia…Positivley…Rastafari people know a lot about African Culture & Black History. Rasta people love to learn about African history, traditions, Peoples and way of life.  In Fact, African Roots and Culture and Rastafari are one. I try to read books on African history and watch videos on african history because this is the history of my Ancestors, which helps me to be a more well-rounded individual. Rasta also learn about African Culture because we know that all life began in “Mother Africa.” Also King Selassie I, (Lord and Savior of Rasta People) comes from Ethiopia Africa. So, Rasta are Innately Inspired to Love Africa & Black History, and especially the History and Culture of Ethiopia.

 

#10 Rastas encourage you to live natural

Last, but not least…Rastafari People encourage their friends and Relatives to live a clean natural lifestyle. Rasta doesn’t like to use medications, so they may encourage you to use Herbs, meditation, vitamins, or some natural Alternative to Babylon invasive, Destructive pharmaceuticals. Rasta knows that to live natural is to the live the way that Jah, The Creator, God intended, which in turn brings us closer to him. To Embrace the Rasta Way of Life please read my book on The Rastafari Livity.

This Rastafari Empress is Vex!!!

rasta god, selassieWhere do I start. the last place I was living was a temporary arrangement. I loved the accommodation, as it was a condominium, however again it was temporary. I knew I wanted something more tailored to my needs and desires, but I wasnt sure what and I wasnt sure when or how to get it. I knew I needed time to get clear.

For the past year I sought that clarity.

For 1 whole year, I thought about doing many things, but when it came to the actual doing….I lacked action and enthusiasm and creativity. I knew there was a problem, so I began to seek a solution for my lack of action. …Then I realized what the problem really was…..I was trying so hard to be somebody I wasnt, and I was trying to fit into the neat little box that others created for me. Could you imagine I was doing this for a whole  year and didn’t even know it. Now that I know it I am vex!!!

I know I am not the only black and capable woman who is not living up  to her full potential because she is trying to fit into the neat little box of others ….this could be…lock your hair

  • The Caucasian box
  • The “I am not skinny enough” box
  • The “My hair is too nappy box”
  • the “I don’t have enough money-box
  • I am not worthy box
  • I am not smart enough box

Fuck that!!!!!

Accepting the brain wash

For a whole year….I was accepting the brain wash and didn’t even know it. I was paying a very big price and felt like a piece of dirt. The price I paid was my black-woman-thinkingown inner peace and happiness. I have my own authentic life….it is based on me and all my unique qualities as a black woman. Fuck it. I have decided that if people want to call me “an angry black woman” I am going to wear that badge with honour and be proud and productive. I am here for a very specific purpose. I am blessed to know what that is.

On the brighter side, I know exactly what that purpose is. I know a couple of things many people do not…It has altered the way I look at life. If I may take this opportunity to share something very important with you…Jah is seeing every thing you are doing. From the big to the very small, from the dirty filthy to the….well you get it…..

I love my people (Jamaican people)

rastafari and jamaica flags and informationI love my people….they are so beautiful. Its time for them to know the truth. Its time for the whole world to know the truth. “Anger is useless, unless you use it for something.” Wow I just made that up. That my Quote. >Empress says…LOL just kidding. I am going to use my anger to propel me into doing what I am suppose to….on

I have gotten my enthusiasm back, I have total and complete clarity, I know exactly what I should be doing every day……Phew. I waited for a long time to feel this. I guess you could say I was in a state of confusion. I was feeling such confusion…now I am clear. Thanks and praises unto Jah the Almighty for the clarity…

 

My Clarity

  • I know in all that I do I must serve my communityking selassie empress menen
  • I know in all that I do I must create
  • I know in all that I do I must honour Rastafari
  • I know in all that I do I must seek to improve things for my people



I cannot pretend to be somebody else….that is a sure road to unhappiness…and misery. I am sorry Jah Jah. But you guided me out…You guided me in. Now I am where I am supposed to be. Give thanks and praises unto The Most High 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.

Rasta Jewlery (Dog Tag) Necklace

Move to Jamaica: Me as Rasta, How to become Rasta, Jah Rastafari: my diary

rastaman what is itSometimes I am aware that Jah had some serious plans for me as a Rasta. I shouldn’t really say had because with Jah anything is possible at any time. I feel like I am not living up to my full potential….as a Rasta chosen by the most high. This is mostly when I see the work of other Rasta on places like YouTube making music, and performing on Stage. Or when I look back on the books he had me write…But again for me it comes back to the move to Jamaica, to block out all the influence of Babylon that is not I and I, and to soak up the inspirations that will foster the power of The 
Most High,  in my heart.

I believe Jah has had different plans for me at different times…I believe he wants me to

To be a Rasta is a huge Responsibility

  • This…being a Rasta is a great responsibility. You always have to be on your best behaviour, because Jah Rastafari is always watching you, and my judgement as a Rasta will be much more strict and more harsh than that of others.
  • I must be aware of the feelings I cause others to feel
  • I must be aware of how I treat other people
  • I am suppose to approach ever situation with my spiritual awareness and love for Jah

Jah is my inner compass, Jamaica is my home

I love being a Rasta, but I have to accept that I will never be like other people. I have an inner compass already, that if I don’t pay attention to, it leaves me feeling sad and misaligned. I have decided that yes, I will go to Jamaica, to live. I don’t see my self “trying it out” I already know the home of my heart. This thought has been on going for the past 3 years. I read on the internet apparently I am only suppose to stay 6 months but who’s really checking. I guess I’ll stay six months then 1 month in Canada, then go back to my home. Rastafari is something that one inherits spiritually. Every body knows Jamaica is the heart of Reggae music. It’s where it was born, and where it is Fostered. Everybody knows, Jamaica is the heart of Rastafari, it’s where most Rastafari persons live per capita, and where Rastafari is most widely accepted and known of by the people. So again. Day after day I abuse my self by staying in my birth country as if something good is going to come out of this. So far the only thing I fin,  is that day after day, I lose a little bit  more and more of my self. That is a huge price to pay just to try to make my mother happy who isn’t even a big part of my life.

Everything I do is Rastafari, roots and culture

Every thing I do in my life is Rastafari, that is my choice. I made that decision the day i locked my hair. I figured why go part way. But I didn’t know how many things I could do. The Most High led me through synchronicity to making Rastafari jewelry. I KNOW its part of his plan for me….at least for now. I suddenly just realized how displeased I am with my self….for not making this decision and sticking to it sooner. I would have the same conversation with my mother once a week…”Mom I want to move to Jamaica….” ” no…I don’t think you should, they might Rob you” ” I don’t think so mom, it’s about how you dress and your behaviour…” “ok see for you self..” Then she starts raising her voice. This reminds me of the time my mom wanted me to go nursing school, I told her I didn’t want to….she ended up pounding her fist on the table. Like it’s as if she wants me to be her or something and I can never be, will never be, and have no desire to be. I love my self, I love who I am, I know the Most High chose me. My Job is to live my life for him, do what I can in terms of taking care of my self, move to Jamaica and not worry too much.

are all by my rasta heart. This is the only way I can be happy. I can make other stuff, or write about other things, but my soul wont be happy if I do that.

My Chart says “Life is better for me In Jamaica!”

My astrology chart told me that I would have a good career if I moved to Jamaica that would become my focus. hmmm…Maybe I over read my chart. There I go doubting my self again. Whenever I have done readings for friends its always been spot on….but for my self…I doubt, I have my book, My jewelry, my mothers home….the beach, the tourists, other rasta….and for goodness sakes my notoriety as a foreigner right in my home town (in Jamaica) surely I can use that to get by. This is a big decision. I think I will plan a trip for 6 weeks and come back. I really have no idea what I am stepping into (not about my mothers concerns) Just having to readjust to a new society that I havent visited in 18 years. I truly believe half of what determines a persons experience with persons places or things, is how they felt about that person place or thing before they interacted with it. So, basically your expectations become the reality. The truth is I love my roots and culture so much that I am willing to live in Jamaica with nothing. That is why I mention in a previous post that it is impossible for me to “fail” at this, because to me, Just being able to know I am where my heart wants me to be….is a huge inherited wealth in its self. I must go! The question is… when? The other thing of it is…I must finish this book I started, On “how to become Rastafari.” There are people who would appreciate the guidance, so I have to complete my part of what I said I would do. The other thing is I started to build an online store, for my rasta jewelry and other Rastafari accessories. I am kind of thinking of asking a friend of mine, also  a Jamaica rasta, to run it for me. The thing is he already owns a rasta store in Toronto. So, to have an online rasta shop all packaged, ready for him to put his photos up from his shop, would be a dream come true for him. You want to know the funny part? He is in Jamaica right now….lol!  So, I cannot even discuss these matters with him.

  • I generated my astrology chart for me in Jamaica and it showed me a strong house of career
  • The tourist industry is huge in Jamaica perhaps I could take advantage of that by pitching some tents my mothers front lawn…lol

My friend is probably going to come back at the time I will be leaving, that’s the power of the universe. But he could fill up my online  rasta shop and just run with it.


I love to Make Rasta Jewelry, and write my Rasta book

I really enjoy making my jewelry, and have so many different styles of African and Jamaican jewelry designs in my head. Plus there are some people on here I will make special pieces for. So, I have a whole slew of things to complete before I go. The book will surely take the longest, and is well worth the wait. I am really personalizing it. I want those seeking the knowledge of Rastafari as a spiritual way of life to really know how to live it, and to really understand it from a Rasta point of view, this is the reason I put my experiences in this book. I do believe Jah chose me to do this. I do believe he knows I have what it takes to do this. Such as my experience, the fact that I enjoy writing, and the fact that I have a story to tell, that is all Rasta, simply for the fact that it has been suppressed for so long. Not only that, I feel I have the words to turn those feelings into something those who are not Rastafari, can understand. I really don’t have big expectations about this book. If it gives me an income of $30  a month I will be happy, it gives me an income of $300 dollars a month I will be happy. I see the money as the way people will say thank you for writing it. Plus I believe any life worth living always leaves something of value behind after the death. Such as Bob Marley, Peter Tosh, Selassie, Marcus Garvey, something created by the person that was a token of their purpose here on earth. So, this book is my token. I am so happy that I have a token!!!! how cool is that? Sometimes I think this darn thing will never get finished. But I must press on.

Moving to Jamaica is the reward!

My reward will be my move to Jamaica. I am so looking forward to it that it brings tears to my eyes. I will feel like I am finally at home. And for good ness sakes, there will be so many SEXY RASTAMEN, out there. Whoooo hoooo, and the Jamaican white sandy beaches. I don’t even know why anybody would want to leave Jamaica and live in Canada or America. I love you all

Rasta Jewelry for men

I will be making Rasta and Jamaican Accessories with men in mind. I know men don’t always like to wear what women can wear. So I will make some male focused Jamaican jewelry in a while.

How to make Rastafarian bracelets – package???

It seems a lot of people want to know how to make Rasta bracelets and Rastafarian earrings. I wont be making a tutorial but I am willing to go one step further. I was thinking why don’t I sell the same tool I use, so that you can make your own. You can copy my designs, or come up with your own designs, so what do you think? Each vial would be around $2-$3 at the most, then you would need some other things, but I could sell every thing as a package for you guys. Like a Rastafari necklace how to package, and a Rasta bracelet how to package….just an idea. I think it would be fun and you guys would enjoy it.

 

about me and my jewelry

I really wanted to write more about me and my jewelry. I consider the jewelry that I make an extension of my self. An extension of my spiritual self. For that reason it is important for me to share this jewelry with you, and to tell  you what my inspirations are, which in most cases will be the Most high. I feel like I am just allowing my self to be my self now…after 30 years….I am very excited….these rasta accessories, have been long-awaited and eager to come out from my heart and from my soul. Jah is good. Follow him….he loves you. For some reason I am the type of person who likes o do many things at once. Do you know that I am writing a book on how to become a Rastafarian? Well, I am….but I am already thinking about writing a book on Ethnic jewelry / slash ethnic beading and accessories. hmmmm. oh well enough….with that. I love you all. Jah Bless.

Rastafarian God: Emperor Haile Selassie of Ethiopia

Do Rastafarians have their own God?

 

rasta book

Rastafarians have their own black God, his name is Emperor Haile Selassie. He was born in Ethiopia in 1892, and was crowned emperor, of Ethiopia in 1930. The story of Selassie is an interesting one. There are DVDs that you can watch to learn more. I will give a brief explanation here.

Many Rastafarians say it is outlined in the bible, the birth of Emperor Haile Selassie and the fact that he is God. In the bible it says, ” he will be called…The king of kings, lord or lords, conquering lion of the tribe of Judah,” apparently Selassie is of the tribe of Judah because of the time he was born, which is under the sign of leo, the lion, (the tribe of Judah). There is a lot more cool facts that line up to Selassie being a reincarnation of our lord. Do I believe it myself? Yes, I do. When I found out he could pet lions without being mauled, (even though they were his person pets) I was convinced. I believe you need t have something special inside of you to be able to do this.

Do Rastafarians believe in Jesus Christ?

Yes, there are some Rastas who do believe in Jesus Christ. They call him by the name “Yesus Christos.” I my self am not a “facts rasta” so I can’t really tell you much else about this. what I can tell you is that a lot of Jamaican Rastafarians are raised christian before embracing themselves as Rasta. Therefore, many Rastas read the Christian bible, including my self. In fact I consider the Christian bible to be a spring board into my accepting my self as Rasta. Rastas dont have anything against Christianity or any other religion. We are just different in the sense that we know what we know, and what we know is the truth, there for we cannot deny, our rasta spiritual knowing.

Rasta Colors and the Ethiopian (Rasta) Flag

rasta flag

We rasta get our rasta colors from the real true rasta flag, which is the original flag of Ethiopia, and had the lion on it. I believe somebody changed it, from the lion to a yellow star on a blue background, because just like they smashed off the nose of the sphinx, this is an attempt to try to hide the truth. The lion is a clear symbol of strength, and just to see that flag, no matter who you are, you know there is something very strong, and very special about it. You can buy one at my rasta flag shop. here at www.rasta-flags-shop.com

What do the history books say about the war on Ethiopia? 

Many books say that Mussolini declared war on Ethiopia, in order to colonize it, like the rest of Africa had been successfully colonized by outsiders at that time, and that Mussolini won the war. This is not true. Selassie and his army won the fight. Let me bring you up to speed in case you don’t know, like I didn’t at one point.

The proof is in the pudding!

rastafarian godThere was a time when all of Africa was called Ethiopia. Africa kept on being colonized by outsiders,over and over again until there was only a small piece of land left, which is where Emperor Haile Selassie lived. When Mussolini declared war on Ethiopia in order to colonize it. Selassie being a king, had the resources (army) to go to war in order to defend the part of Africa where he resided. When the war was over, it was still called Ethiopia, because Mussolini was unsuccessful in his attempt to colonize this remainder of Africa. Just by the sheer fact that Ethiopia has its original name, and not a name given to it by its colonizers tells you that, Selassie and his troops won the war. A friend of mine forced me to watch the DVD, which I will try to make available to you as well. On my website. For now please read more about the the war between the Italy and Ethiopia here.

For some Rasta God has no Face and no Name

For some Rasta, God has no face and no name God is a spirit. That makes sense too. But maybe it was all true at some point. Maybe there is God, then he sent Selassie to defend the African Land. God was in Selassie so to speak, so at that time God was black. Then when Selassie was no more Selassie. (some say he is still alive) then he became a spirit, without a face. Personally, I believe Selassie is God or a reincarnation so to speak, but this is a Rasta woman, with all her rasta thoughts and feelings perspective.

I love H.I.M and I love my self. I am African

I love the story of Emperor Haile Selassie, His Imperial Majesty. I love my self too. I am african and I am proud.

Is God Black?

I don’t know if God is black, I have never met him. In the bible jesus is described as being someone “of color.” With his hair “like lambs wool,” and his feet the color of “brass” (sorry guys I don’t remember exactly) but it sounds to me like someone from egypt, and this type of Egyptian have hair like black folks, and tanned to dark-colored skin. “Sizzla,” (a popular reggae music artist) has a song called “no white god” here it is for you to listen to.


Watch this next video and learn why Rastafarians pay respect to Emperor Haile Selassie of Ethiopia as God. This is an interview with popular reggae artist Sizzla, discussing Rastafari.

Bob Marley said “We are all One”

rasta marley bob

Bob Marley sang in one of his songs… “One love, one heart, let’s get together and feel alright..!” We are all one whether we want to be or not, we are. We may be different in color, different by birth country, but the rest is all the same. We, should be more focused on our similarities than our differences, I think we would all be happier if we did that.

P.S.

As long as your God teaches love, unity, and respect I don’t care what color you think of him to be, I am on board. The East indians have Gandhi, he was about peace, The Asians have the Dalai Lama, he also represents a peaceful spirituality, The Christians have jesus, he believed in loving your enemies and leaving oppressors to God. We Rasta have Emperor Haile Selassie and he called for unity among all nations, regardless of skin color or class. Looking to buy an Emperor Haile Selassie Flag…click here!

The meaning of the rasta stripes colours, red yellow-green

 

The meaning of the Rasta stripes is to pay respect to God or Jah. It is also representative of the Ethiopian Flag which has great meaning in the Rastafari spirituality. We Rasta wear these colors as a personal representation of love, unity, and our spiritual connection to the Almighty. Many websites will tell you that….the red represents the blood shed of the African people, the yellow represents the sunshine that lifts up the African land, and the green represents the, the lush nature of the African continent. I have my own interpretation of these colors.

  • Red Rasta Stripe – The love of the Rastafari heart
  • yellow Rasta Stripe – The hope for all humanity that there will one day be unity
  • Green Rasta Stripe – The nature that God (Jah) has given to all of mankind all over the world
  • When you own the Rasta Flag, and have it displayed for everyone to see, you are telling the world that you have love and hope for human kind to unite, that Jah is welcome in your home and in your heart. I want to buy my Rastafari flag now.

Who runs this rasta shop?

I run the rasta shop online, along with a dear friend of mine who is also Rastafari. So it is rasta run and rasta owned.  So if you have any questions, comments, or problems you can always email me. Please remember my website is new so there will be some kinks in the beginning. With time they will get ironed out.

What quality are the flags they are selling?

Top quality nylon flag material. Very light weight and beautiful. I own both the Jamaican flag, to represent my heritage and jamaican culture, and the rasta flag, to represent my Rastafari spiritual beliefs. If you are a jamaican rasta man or Rasta woman,  you should have both flags too. If you are not. You can get both anyway because they are both beautiful.

Can I buy a bob Marley / Ethiopian flag, with rasta stripes?

 

Yes, You can also get a Bob Marley flag and or an Ethiopian flag from the Rasta shop too. The only rasta jewelry so you can definitely purchase those at my shop website as well, I just need some time to post them up . In the near future I will have

You most certainly can. The bob Marley flag that i have available is on a Jamaican symbol. So it’s the bob Marley “freedom” flag. Bobs head, on a rasta flag, in the middle of the jamaican national  flag. Its beautiful really.

What other jamaican Rastafarian accessories are available?

  • soon rasta hats

and many other rasta accessories

truth is the rasta hats are gonna take a while, but I will have those too.

I want a rasta lion flag, or an Ethiopian flag, but I am not a Rasta 

 

There are plenty of people who are not rasta who own a rasta flag with the lion,  or a bob Marley flag, or an Ethiopian flag, simply because they like the colors. You don’t have to be rasta to own the flag. Displaying your Rastafari, bob Marley or Ethiopian flag in your home shows you respect the culture, and like the way the flag looks. The same way you would buy a beautiful piece of art, only these flags are special and have historical and cultural meaning.

Can I become rasta?

you most certainly can, buy your flag today, grow your locks, and don’t eat meat and treat all “life” with respect and dignity. Read more about how to know if you are Rasta on my rasta shop home page.
