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 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.
roots and culture, what it is!
For those of you who don’t know, roots and culture is a feeling. that’s the best way I can put it. As a Caribbean rasta woman roots and culture is what I love. So what is it really? It’s a love of things Caribbean and a love of things African. Hence the roots, hence the culture. Roots and culture includes but not limited to, anything…
- bob Marley music and bob Marley accessories
- rasta reggae music and reggae music related
- Caribbean accessories and jamaican accessories
- Caribbean and jamaican food and jamaican jewelry
- rasta roots & rasta shop items
- emperor Haile Selassie knowledge Selassie accessories
- red yellow and green, rasta colored items
- Rastafarian flag, and the jamaican flag,
- So, basically roots and culture, is a celebration of African heritage and Caribbean culture, sounds beautiful doesn’t it?
I have one regret in life!
That I didn’t live my life more roots and culture. The fun I would have had. I did have a lot of fun growing up, but it wasnt from the heart. Thinking back, I always got a good feeling listening to Bob Marley reggae music, and other Jamaican rasta artist on the radio sunday nights. But that’s about the only celebrating of my roots and my culture I ever did. Let me tell you, I celebrate every day now, in all that I do, from wearing rasta colored accessories, to blogging on this roots and culture website, to writing a book on how to become Rastafari. Now my whole life is Rastafari.
buy jamaican colored items
looking to buy some cool jamaican colored, items, me too. I am rasta this is important to me. In a way I guess I wasnt willing to give other rasta shops a chance. Well ok not really like that. As a rasta woman I have an idea in my head of what I want to buy. We rasta do this naturally, so instead of searching for it. I figured why not just make them my self. I enjoy it. So now i figured why not share my jamaican colored items with the world online. I also have rasta colored jewelry too. I just like looking at them, creating them, then sharing them with other Rastas and other people who love roots and culture. Life is good when you do what you love. More jamaican accessories and more rasta accessories. Oh Jah you love me and I love you.
jamaican products and accessories, yellow black and green
To me there is no separation between jamaican products and rasta products they are separate but the same. Many Rastafarians come from Jamaica, and so we celebrate the two hand in hand. To be more specific, jamaican products, due to the jamaican flag colors are yellow black and green, and rasta products are red yellow and green, to reflect the Rastafarian flag, but really they stand for the same thing, love and unity for all people.
jamaican flag, bracelets, and necklaces
Many people love the jamaican flag as much as I do. I feel it is the most beautiful flag of all. The gorgeous yellow x, with the green and black triangles at the sides and at the tops. That flag was made so balanced and so beautiful. Many people wear this gorgeous symbol on their t-shirts, hats, back packs, bracelets, almost anything that can have the jamaican flag on it, does exist today. I own some jamaican flag colored bracelets (black yellow and green) and necklaces my self. If you like mine you can purchase them for sale on my other blog.
jamaican flag and rasta flag in roots and culture
The jamaican flag and rasta flag are two of the biggest symbols in roots and culture. Rasta people have a special feeling for these two Caribbean flags. When i look at the jamaican flag I see and feel strength, and victory, of the people of jamaica. When I look at the rasta flag, I see unity, peace and love of the African land. These two flags are displayed proudly in my living room, and any rasta knows these symbols more than any thing represent the rasta heart, rasta peace and rasta love for all humanity.
buy rasta, bob Marley accessories
Most of the world became aware of rasta and Rastafari through bob Marley. Many people are under the impression that rasta colors are a celebration of bob Marley. This is incorrect, Rasta colors are a celebration of Rastafari and Bob Marley. You see Rastafari way of life, has always been, even before Bob Marley became a mega Reggae music star. It is the fact that Bob Marley also followed Rastafari spirituality, and wore the rasta colors, that makes people think, that he started Rastafari. But rasta religion for lack of a better word, existed before bob. Many rasta are still around today and still wearing rasta colors as a salute to their spiritual beliefs, and yes to the late great bob Marley too. Looking to buy some great bob Marley accessories, and bob Marley stuff, check out my other rasta blog website.
my rasta website / blog, diary???
Please understand this Rastafari website was started as an online diary, so you will find some of my rants, some of my feelings from my heart, some of my deepest love thoughts and love for Jah(God), here, and just some things I wrote for fun. But, I soon learned people actually want to read some of this stuff, who knew, so I started to share my heart with you even more, and what I found was you guys are sharing your heart with me too. Thank you for that I love you all. Jah Rastafari.
Rastafarian shop, in person and online
It’s hard to find a good Rastafarian shop online or in your own city. This is why many people searching for roots and culture items turn to the internet. I am rasta and I know how hard it can be to find the items you want in the style that you want them. You see rasta have a certain feeling. They want to feel good about the items they buy on many so many different levels. Because I understand this, and I want to serve my self too. I started my own rasta shop online. The funny thing is this all started because I wanted to share my spiritual feelings about being a rasta woman with the world, because it is very special and very important. Check out my rasta shop! Its located at http://shop.jamaicanrastafarianlove.com I love you all, I hope you enjoyed this, bye for now. Jah Rastafari Lives. For information on where to buy Rasta Hats online, click here
I have had this Rastafarian religion, and Rastafarianism website for over a year now. Can you believe its been that long. So I figured to make things run a little smoother, and give you a wider selection of information to read, I should put all of whats available on the front page, and not only that, provide a forum for you to ask question and find information and find other Rastas to get to know.
Rastafari religion??? Maybe not so much
Many people are unaware, that The Rastafari religion, is actually not a religion! Rastafari is a spirituality, or a “spiritual mindset.” We have no strict prayer times, or churches that we must attend. Each Rasta does what he or she feels is right from the heart. We are a loving people who try to follow the ways of “the Most High” (Jah Rastafari) And we do this willingly in our daily life. This is why Rastafari is known as a “way of life!” Not a religion.

Rastafarianism and why there is no “ism”
Many people call our spirituality “Rastafarianism” but a Rasta man or Rasta woman will tell you there is no “ism” in Rastafari, we just are who we are, and again this is not a religion. I have never heard a Jamaican person refer to my spiritual beliefs as “Rastafarianism“, which indicates to me that this was made up by someone who has no knowledge of Rastafari. We are Rastas, and our beliefs and way of life is called “Rastafari” no “ism” please.
5 Interesting Facts about Rastafari
What is a Rasta man?
Rastafarian Beliefs come from our hearts
Rastafarian beliefs are not something every rasta looked up in a book and made conscious decision to follow. Want to know the really cool thing about Rastafari beliefs. Every rasta pretty much has the same beliefs, like I said not educated on the subject. But, yet somehow we all believe the same thing. You could even find this out by meeting one Rasta, and asking him or her a question, and meet another rasta, and find that 9/10 you will get the same answer. Isnt that cool. All our beliefs are from what we feel inside, spiritually.
Rastafarians and love…
dating a jamaican rastaman, learn how to here! Most Rastafarians are single! unfortunately this is true. Why? you may be wondering to your self. The reason is most of us prefer to date someone who is “Rasta” just like our selves. These spiritual beliefs tend to be rare. Therefore most of us are single. Many Rastafari men will date a woman who is not Rastafari and then later ask the woman to “convert” to his spiritual beliefs. Is this fair? I am not the one to judge. But I know this happens a lot. Me on the other hand I refuse to do that. If the guy was not embracing Rastafari before I met him, then I am not interested. If he does it just because I want him to, then that would mean it’s not coming from the heart. Is it really meaningful then? Read about how to convert and become Rastafari here.

“Rastaman vibration” what is the Rastaman vibration?
The Rastaman vibration is something only a true Rastaman or true Rastawoman can feel. Well, that is not entirely true. We can feel it…and through or feelings, or words, or creations, we cause others to feel it. The rastaman vibration is something very special, spiritual, loving, beautiful and special. Its sort of like feeling amazing…and full of love. that is why Bob Marley wrote so many songs about love, and good positive vibes, because he wrote his songs from his own personal “rasta man vibration!” Jah Rastafari!
The Rastafari movement and what it means…
The Rastafari movement, I believe was a back to africa movement, that never happened. It was started by Marcus Garvey, who wanted Africans to reclaim their roots culture and land. Marcus Garvey was also a Jamaican, and also seen as a prophet to many Rastafarians. He once made a play in which he stated “look to africa, for the coming of a black king!” Then there was Emperor Hallie Selassie of Ethiopia. Right now for me I am not on a Rastafari movement, but I do seek to create awareness. So people can know the truth and have the right to make choices based on all information, instead of just “some” information.
“Rastafari jah” what does it mean?
When a Rasta man or Rasta woman says “Jah Rastafari” we are paying respect to the Most High. Because we know the Most High created everything. So, we must give our thanks and praises. Most Rasta pay respect to Emperor Hallie Selassie I the first. Rastafari Jah! You see…and just for the fact of that. I give thanks and praise. Jah Rastafari!!!!
bob Marley and his Rastafari songs of togetherness and love
Bob Marley is an example of what it means to be a true Rasta man. He wore dreadlocks and he free formed them. The work he did, was all about Rastafari love and togetherness. He encourage people of color to unite. He sang songs of universal and Romantic love. Rastafari is about love, it’s about freedom, it’s about the almighty Rastafari Jah. Rastafari has always been and will always be. Just like mr Bob Marley him self.
Dreadlocks and Rastafari sexiness
I believe Dreadlocks are a huge part of Rastafari sexiness. I was afraid that once I showed my locks people were going to look at me weird. In actuality, since I started showing my dreadlocks out in public, I feel more beautiful and more accepted by others. Bob Marley was a beautiful man, but his dreadlocks made him that much more appealing I am sure. When I see a man with locks, I definitely check him out. If you want to learn how to get dreadlocks rasta hair, just check out this link.
why does jamaica make so many rasta man?
What is it about the island of Jamaica giving birth to so many Rasta man? Hmmm I don’t know the answer, but I feel it has something to do with the deep Christian faith among the people of this great island, and the reggae music. Bob Marley who was a super star rasta reggae singer, was born and raised in Jamaica, and never left. I am very proud of my Jamaican roots. Living in Jamaica is very inspirational on many levels, and Jah is one of the biggest influences over the people. I give thanks.
What does it really mean to be Rasta?
What does it really mean to be Rasta? Plenty of people call them selves many things that they know are not true. I assume people do this to impress others, or because they want something to be proud of. Read about my dating experience with my first “rasta man” we look at the faith differently. No body’s way is better than any body elses. Here I explain what (to me) it means to be Rastafari
Vow to take if you want to become Rastafari click here.
Hey guys. As I stated I am writing a book on Rastafari for all of you. This is my first book, and I have other things to do in my life so I have kind of slowed down on the writing for now. The good news is the rough copy is all done….so I just have to finish the final copy and we are all set. I know many of you wonder what Rastafarians believe on a whole slew of topics, but I wanted to make this post specific on love dating and marriage.
Rasta beliefs on dating non Rastas
Many “deep” for lack of better word, Rastafari men and women will not date someone outside of their spiritual beliefs. We understand that this could mean being single for a long time and even maybe forever. We depend on Jah to bring us the right person when the time is right. However, there are some Rasta who are ok with the notion of meeting someone who is not Rasta and then “converting” that person for lack of a better word, into Rastafari. So, like anything else to each his own. You will find more men will date a non Rasta woman, and more Rasta women, will not date a non Rasta man. This is generally speaking. Maybe its all about availability….who knows.
Why do some Rastas like Bob Marley have so many women?
Rasta men, are not immune to having multiple relationships with women. But truly I feel they just have too much love in their hearts. This is gonna get me in trouble….Most Rastafari men I would say 95% are faithful, and 5 percent not so faithful. This is for various reasons. Bob Marley was a very good-looking superstar, and he was Rastafari. Many women were attracted to him and I’m sure him attracted to them. What I am getting at is this for some men of Rastafari they have many women at one time because the women allow it. On the other hand there are Rastafari men who just don’t believe in sleeping around at all. In fact most of us “Jamaican Ras” operate in this manner. People get away with what they can folks…bottom line.
Do Rastas believe in true love?
Rastas believe big time in true love. We do believe that true love is possible, and when we love we love with all our hearts. For someone who is not ready for this type of love, they may feel undeserving, or “smothered” Rastas get into a relationship intending to stay there, most of us, for the most part. Love is one of the things we live for. With love, food tastes better, life looks brighter, and we can be mentally clearer. Romantic love is an essential part of human life. As an earthly being we have earthly needs. Love and affection are paramount to a person of Rastafari spirituality.
How can I make my Rasta King love me more?
Many women have put comments regarding their relationship wondering, is he truthful? Is he sleeping around? Things of this nature. Perhaps if you feel the need to ask these questions, he is not the one for you. If your man is clearly accessible and perhaps you want to deepen the bond the two of you have as a non Rastafari woman, trust him, and believe what he tells you about “Jah” and about life. Eat how he eats, live how he lives, love him how he loves you and respect it. Your Rasta King will greatly appreciate this. And when you do this and he wants to touch you passionately, you can thank me in the comments….lol
Rasta beliefs on Marriage
Truth is ladies, we Rastas don’t really believe in marriage. That is not to say we wont do it. Just most of us don’t make a big deal out of it. We believe the relationship is the marriage, and like marriage if we no longer want to be in the relationship we will leave. We also believe marriage doesn’t come with any gaurantees…just because you are married it doesn’t mean the person will love you for ever. We believe in letting love just be what it’s going to be and that a piece of paper isn’t all that important when it comes to matters of the heart. The support, the communication, being reliable, and being each others best friend is what a relationship should be all about. Put your heart in it and it will be great. This is what we Rasta believe about marriage. This post is very short. perhaps I will writ more another time. Thanks for reading. Bye for now.
Do Rasta believe in getting having children and settling down?
We Ras live for this type of relationship. To settle down and have a family is every single rasta dream. However we know sometimes Jah wants us to stay clear and clean for his own reasons. We accept the single life and embrace it just the same we would our committed relationship. A Rasta in a long-term relationship, typically is a happy one. We love to do things for our partners and for a children, because we see God in our partners and our children. Please visit my new forum if you are looking for information on Rasta dating, or post your own profile seeking love. Blessed Love. Rastafari is the truth every time!
