- Skirts and dresses as Feminine Clothing : Rasta women dress to embrace their feminine qualities. As Empress being able to carry life is a gift from Jah the creator. Wearing skirts only helps to separate us as divine feminine from our Masculine counter parts. Being a woman is a Joy, Rasta women do not wear pants. We enjoy long skirts to our ankles, they may be tight or loose depending our mood and our duties for that day.
- “Red Yellow and Green Rasta Colors”: Red Yellow and Green are the spiritual colors of Rastafari. We Rastafari wear, “Rasta Colors” in our clothing, In our Jewelry, and Decorate our homes in Rasta Colors too. Rasta colors, mean, love, unity and togetherness. These colors are also found on the Rastafari Lion of Judah Flag. Ttypically Rasta women do not wear pink, however we do if we can match it with a head wrap, for example to give the pink ensemble a “more cultured” appearance. Dressing as a Rasta Woman is all about balance. Don’t forget to check out my “Rastafari Rules for Women” Blog Post
- If Tight… no exposed skin: Some Rasta women wear tight clothing, however there are 2 rules that apply #1: No showing of the skin if the garment is tight. #2: The buttocks and Breast area must be clearly covered, so as not to accentuate or define these areas. Rasta women must not resemble prostitutes, or women of Babylon as we Represent Jah and his holiness at all times.
- If exposed Skin… Not Tight: There will be days when we as Rasta women will enjoy a loose off the shoulder blouse, or a nice loose skirt to the knees. We Just keep in mind that we are not trying to attract “sexual attention,” as we are not part of the heathen. Rather Rasta Women dress to demonstrate our divine feminine, in a comfortable manner. On these days, we make sure the garment is loose, so that we appear self respectful, and free-flowing and comfortable in our garments, as opposed to, sensual and seductive in tight, skin revealing garments. You understand.
- Make-up to a minimum: Rasta women wear makeup only if and when they have to. 3 Basic rules: Rule#1: Natural Tones, and colors. Rule#2: No lining of the eyes *SCRIPTURE:“When Jezebel, the queen mother, heard that Jehu had come to Jezreel, she painted her eyelids and fixed her hair and sat at a window…”* We Rasta women know eye liner is to attract sexual attention from men, and is a type of make typically used by prostitutes. Just leave your eyes normal. Rule#3: Limit the amount of various makeup products. My personal limit is 3. Foundation, lipstick, Eyebrow pencil. That’s only because Rasta women are not allowed to “pluck” their eyebrows as all hair on the body is considered sacred, in Rastafari.
- Rasta women Cover her Locks: Rasta women cover the dreadlocks when in Public. We know that our hair represents our faith and is a living sacrifice to Jah. We cover our dreadlocks to respect our faith and ourselves. Rasta Women are aware that in Babylon, sometimes long, loose hanging hair on a woman attracts the wrong type of attention from men. We wrap our hair so that men and all people who meet and interact with us, see us for who we are as a person, and not our hair style, length, or our hair beauty. Rasta women share our locks glory, with our Kings, children, and extended family, not strangers, or people we do not know. Naturally at home we allow our locks to breathe free and hang loose.
- Rasta women and tights: There will be days when you don’t feel like wearing a skirt. THE MAIN things to consider are, who will I be around today? What activities will I be doing today? Will I be with my Kids? Will there be men around whom I don’t know? Wil I be with My King? When you are with your King all rules apply, but its ok to wear some tights and a long top. As long as effort is made to cover the life portal, and the back area which tend to be round and enticing to men, then you could rock some tights.
- Rasta Women’s and T_shirts: Rasta women can wear t-shirts.
Rastafari t-shirts are best. THIS INCLUDES red yellow and green and a Symbol of Rastafari such as, a heart, a Lion, A Rasta Flag, A picture of Empress Menen, or King Selassie I. Tight t-shirts with a bra, and long skirt, is cute for casual days.
- Rasta Woman’s Clothing is Her Uniform: A Rasta womans clothing is her uniform, just like a Rasta mans outfit is his uniform. I like people to know right away when they look at me that, a) I respect my self, b)I represent a spiritual cause and movement, c)My clothing is a reflection of my mind and thoughts, d)I am not a part of the heathen or heathen mentality, e) my self-esteem is not dependent on my sensuality, or what others I don’t know think of me. Phew, that is a lot. But, Rasta women take their faith seriously. Whats the point other wise? Empress Menen is my feminine Divine Mentor. Only her, I try to Mimic, nobody else.
- No “Babylon” Symbols : No skulls, no upside down cross, no kissing, no polka dots, depictions or symbols on clothing. In Rastafari we believe all energy invites. We do not invite Babylon, death, or, sensuality.
Most Rastas will tell you they are not all that into Christmas. But some celebrate Christmas, and some just like the gift receiving part. You can give a Rasta a gift at Christmas time. They will enjoy it just like anybody else. Tell them you are embracing the gift giving and not Babylon meaning of “Christmas.” From a smaller budget to a larger budget you are sure to find something you like for the Rastafari in your life.

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.
ackee treejamaican restaurant on Spadina
Well folks…to be honest I havent actually been to the acckee tree jamaican restaurant….but I will explain. This fantastic jamaican restaurant started out in the basement of the eaton centre shopping mall. their food was fan tastic…never once had any complaints. the reason I liked their food so much was that every time I got it, it would taste the same….exactly the way good jamaican food should taste. I love Jamaican food that is cooked with all the right seasonings….and with many menu options. The ackee tree takes the cake on this…..anyway….the eaton center closed their basement for renovations…and then the ackee tree moved to spadina just north of Queen street. So I havent actually been there, but i am sure the food is strill delicious…be sure and check this one out.
ritz on yonge south of dundas
the ritz started out just above the Gay village north of Wellesly…then they moved around a few times. Now they are also located on yonge st just south of dundas. this is one of my favorite take out eat in jamaican restaurants. Heres why. When I first started embracing rastafari I was embracing rastafari in every aspect of my life. Because for me finally accepting this part of my self was like a rebirth…a joyful rebirth, and I wanted to experience it in any and every way I could. Whenever I would go to this location Ritz, they would have some nice rockers tunes playing. This made me feel like I was home. It also kind of made me feel like I had just stepped off the plane into Jamaica. I love that feeling. I love some good Rasta reggae music. So that was the first thing I liked. But then I tried the food and the service and was very happy. However….I will say the truth….These people make you feel welcome…..the food is great….I would recommend it to anyone. Go there, but dont ask for extra rice…
I could not find a website address for you guys so I offer another person blog post
the real jerk at Queen and Broadview
The real jerk has been around a very long time. I love the decor and the ambiance of this jamaican food restaurant. If you are searching for a place to bask in the jamaican culture and listen to some nice reggae music while you eat, then the real jerk on Queen st is for you. Its more of a casual place, so you dont have dress up. The staff are really friendly and are willing to do all to make your dining experience one to remember. Its not a big place, so you could be sitting very close to some unfamiliar faces. But its quaint and gets the job done. Which hopefully is to fill your tummy with some nice jamaican food. Enjoy. 709 Queen st E.
bloor st just east of dufferin- Jerk King
You must visit Jerk King. Im sure its called that for the jerk chicken, but I go there for the stew chicken and the curried potatoes. Delicious.
This place gets my jamaican food right every time. You must go there. It is a small whole in the wall, but man is the food ever worth it. They have many nice drinks too. Nutriment, Reggae rythms in the pinapple ginger….mmmm just thinking about it makes me want to go. Whenever I leave that place my belly feels alright for hours. Go check it out and let me know what you think.
eglinton avenue west.
Eglinton west avenue, makes some of the best jamaican food. I dont know the names of any of the restaurants but the food there is delicious.
Bathurst subway, bathurst and bloor, One Love Vegetarian
There is a restaurant I have been meaning to check out. It is called oneloveveg. I am pretty sure it is run by a Rasta, cause rasta love to cook nice Ital food. The restaurant looks nice. I pass it all the time but have never been in there. hmmmm. They have a webstie too. www.oneloveveg.com
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!
How to love a Jamaican Rasta man
I have met people who say they are Rasta and are not. So this I write here and now is not about them. I am writing about the “true” Jamaican Rasta man. The kind who is humble, considerate, and gentle. The kind any woman would fall in love with. But these men are not always easy to be with, for many reasons. To sum it all up. If you are not Rasta your self, a Jamaican Rasta man may be difficult to deal with, and hard to understand his motivations.
Be gentle with your Rastaman
Be gentle with your rastaman, he is special and a true gift from God in the deepest meaning possible. Forgive him when he hurts you and is unaware of it.
Give your Rasta man space to be him self
Give your rastaman space to be him self. If you are not Rasta, this is of the utmost importance to keeping your relationship with him healthy and thriving. Not giving your rastaman space is a very fast road to having him run away from you.
Give him lots and lots of love, but be pure and clean spiritually
Give your Jamaican Rasta man, lots and lots and lots…did I say lots? ….of love. The only way your “true” Jamaican rasta man is going to reject your love is if he feels you are not good for him. Which usually means you are acting like your life is to serve the man “downstairs” instead of the man “upstairs” and that we Ras do not accept. So, give him lots of love and affection, and loving attention. If you have a true Jamaican rasta man in your life ladies…believe me you don’t even need a television set, if you catch my drift. Jah makes beautiful things.
Bob Marley had many lovers and many children
Bob Marley had many lovers and as a result had many children. This was his own personal choice.
There Rastafari men who don’t even have one lover, there are Rastafari men who are very faithful, there are Rastafari men who wouldn’t even think to cheat on their women. Those men are probably with women who value the faith, and value themselves, among other things. You also have to remember, Bob Marley was a Superstar! Superstars have groupies, and we all know he is not the first man to have a baby with another woman outside of his legal marriage – and he wont be the last!
Are all Jamaican men promiscuous
There are a lot of Jamaican men who are promiscuous. But I have said it before and I will say it again. I truly believe this is because in places like Canada and the United States they get spoiled. Very spoiled. Most of the women accept this bad behavior, so the men do it because they are getting away with it. One or two bad experiences and we women feel all the men are like that. But truly a Rasta man – a “true” Rasta man is not like that, I know that from my heart. Because The Most High created him to know “right from wrong”
Many women are attracted to the Jamaican Rasta man
Many women are very attracted to The Rasta man. Some say its the hair (dreadlocks) I say its his inner self that attracts women. The innocence of his soul that is showing, ok yes. Combined with the dreadlocks, and some dark beautiful skin, this is very alluring. So, ladies don’t complain, if you wanted him, and you got him, just know to see someone and to know them are two different things.
My own Jamaican Rasta man, at least I hope ??
Can you believe I don’t officially have my own Jamaican Rasta man? I tell you what being a Rastafari woman and dating, Is not an easy thing. The other day a guy from Bosnia of all places picked me up. Yes! Bosnia. These types of men are always attracted to me. That’s not what I am supposed to be typing about. There is a guy I met about 2 months ago, physically he is exactly what I asked the most high for. But can we have a relationship? I don’t know. He is in Jamaica right now and will return, in April of this year. He did seem nice ….maybe we can be an item, a Rastafari couple is a beautiful thing! Rastafari!
So why does the Jamaican Rastaman have a bad wrap in relationships?
There are some Jamaican rasta man who “take advantage” of the fact that women find them so attractive. Most are not like this. They no Jah is always watching and always listening and do not wish to be a sinner. This is the truth ladies. So please do not judge the whole bunch because of a few rotten ones. Rastaman knows right from wrong more than any other. And treating people with respect is a big part of our spirituality. Want to know if the Rastafari way of life is right for you….click here.
So whats the verdict on the jamaican rastaman?
There are many who are gentle and have good intentions. If you are a Rastafari woman you increase your chances greatly of having a loving fulfilling relationship. There are some who are “too in love with woman” and therefore sleep around. Knowing who we are and knowing what we Rasta know, these men are the exception and not the rule.
If you have a true Jamaican rastaman in your life, you are blessed you may not know it. But you are blessed. Oh and you don’t have to Jamaican to Rasta, but this is the type I am most familiar with as a Jamaican Rastafari woman.
I hope this article was fun and informative.
Jah Rastafari. Emperor Selassie I the first.
Rastafarianism is the Religion of “Rasta” people. The correct term for this religion is “Rastafari.” In case you are not familiar with “Rastafari” The late great “Bob Marley” was a Rasta man who lived his life, “Rastafari.”
What is Rastafarianism or Rastafari all about?
Rastafari is a spirituality, or way of life, as the Rasta people call it. People often ask, where does this (religion) spirituality come from? It comes from “The most High” God. Or, one could say it comes from the heart. Either way it is of “divine” origin.
What is a Rasta?
Why Rastafari is not a Religion
The beliefs of Rastafarianism (The beliefs of Rastafari)
- Emperor Hallie Selassie as God
- Life After Death
- The smoking of Marijuana for relaxation
- Love for all humanity (Unity)
- vegetarian diet
Rastafarian beliefs of what not to do
- The consumption of alcohol or drugs
- Materialistic centered lifestyle
- The smoking of cigarettes
- Sexual promiscuity and much more.
Thank you for reading my article I wrote it because I know people have a lot of questions on Rastafari I hope you learned something.
What is a Rasta man or a Rasta woman
I knew I would eventually write this post. I was just waiting for a time when I felt healed enough to do it. I will explain.
My Rasta X – Boyfriend – Well maybe not so Rasta
About 8 weeks ago I met someone who dressed and looked as if he practiced the same faith as me. We met on the bus and were instantly attracted to eachother. Ok well I am exaggertating a little bit. I did meet him on the bus about 2 years ago and we chatted briefly about various things related to the black community. I ran into him twice in this fasion. At those times, he had no dreadlocks, and did not sport red yellow and green. I too did not have my locks and did not wear red yellow and green. So, 2 years later there we were on the bus, both Rasta – I thought. We chatted and he invited me to his house. I was more than excited, I knew I wanted to be intimate with him, as I had not been with a man in a very long time and vowed to be intimate with a man only of Rastafari spirituality. Now I know this sounds very fast on my part, however I was not with a man for A VERY LONG TIME, and in the rastafari community between two Rastafarians, there no such thing as “too fast” only love. So, we planned for me to go to his house the next day, there our court ship began. From day one things were way far from what they should have been to start a healthy relationship.
- He took his socks off while I was there – Rastafarians have a huge amount of respect for other people, I was offended by this but it was his house, so maybe this was more my fault than his. He didnt even think to ask me if that was ok. Nobody wants to see there dates feet on the first date I am sure
- He didnt get the same vibe from the music as me – Any true Rastaman knows, the vibe of Rastafari is in the music. He just didnt get it
- He asked me if I wanted to go lay down in the room– I thought again that was impolite
- He lectured me extensively on the life of Emperor Haille Selassie – This was rude because he is assuming that I dont already know, and second, that I wanted to hear what he had to say on the matter
- His breath was not nice – For goodness sakes when a woman comes over, must you smoke weed and be in need of breath mint.
No, I did not sleep with him that day
My Beliefs about Rastafari are simple and private
So, silly me, being so desperate to be intimate with a man of the same spiritual beliefs as me. I went over a second time. I wasnt sure if I wanted to have sex or not. I kind of got the feeling that if I did, that was as good as it was going to get between us. I could sense that we had very little in common and obviously approached the whole spirituality thing in different ways. I believe that Rastafari is something of the heart, that goes with me everywhere I go. He believe that Rastafari is Emperor Haille Selassie, and if you dont know as much as him about Emperor Haile Selassie, then you are not Rasta. So sad, if he only knew the truth. I explained to him that my spiritual beliefs have been there since I was born, and that I was choosing to express it now. So he could try his best to convince me to see things his way as much as he wants. I also believe Rastafari is not something you force on others. If you are thats great, but you definetly dont go around forcing people to believe what you believe, and Rasta dont behave like that. I also told him that Rasta are calm patient and down to earth. One day he went on to yell at me, and tell me “I will die for my beliefs” I thought that was going to far. I felt like I was part of a fundametalist camp or cult, the more I listened to this man talk about Rastafari.
As I am reading this I realized that I new he wasnt like me but I somehow felt better sleeping with him with him calling him self this title, even thoug I knew he wasnt.
What the psychic told me before I met him
I was going through a very hard time emotionally about 2 weeks before I met this man. I was praying to God to please let me meet a psychic. Long story short I did meet a psychic and we became friends. Anyway I asked will I meet a man, she said yes. I said “is he Rasta?” She said “no” but “he has dreadlocks, and grew up learning about the Rasta way of life.” I said “what?, a guy with dreadlocks who is not Rasta? Oh, no it would be better to say he doesnt weart dreadlocks but you are telling me he wears dreadlocks but is not Rasta?” Then she said he is, then I said what? Is he or isnt he? she said hes not. This was on my mind still like an hour later. I wasnt taking what she was saying that seriously but if this guy has locks and is not Rasta then that would make him a fake rasta. So I decided to ask her one more time. Is he a rasta or isnt he…..(understand something folks, Rastafari is something that comes from the heart, its like being psychic so me asking her to tell me the accurate truth is like me asking her to look deep into the heart of this man she says is somewhere in my future) she said “hes not!” I asked her 3 more times she said again “he not!! So, I accepted feeling that someone who knows about Rastafari will accept me. And that was that.
I told him what the psychic said
After the first time I went over to his house, we talked on the phone quite a few times. I told him that I had a psychic friend and that she told me I was going to meet a Rastafari man who had dreadlocks but was not Rasta. He said, I dont like this lady.
Where do my Rastafari Beliefs come from when my parents are not Rasta
My Rastafari beliefs come from the most high, even though I know rules and dont follow them to a T I still know who I am. Remember its like being born psychic, you just are. Another cannot come and tell you that because you dont live as one that you are not one. You just are or you are not. Rastafari has always been in my heart, and always will be.
The 5 main values of Rastafari
- Gods word and the bible before all
- Love of African black people and the beauty of natural black people
- natural living including vegitarianism
- Respect and love of all lifeforms including plants and animals
- Love first in all dealings and relations with all life forms
- If any TRUE Rastafari men or women read this please tell me in 5 points what Rastafari means to you, I would love to read it.
If you really want to know, Jesus was Rastafari, ask any born Rasta
Any true Rasta will tell you that Jesus of the bible is a Rasta, for sure, there is no doubt in my mind. Everything that we Rasta have been through. Jesus went through. God decided Jesus would be jesus before his conception, jesus spoke of god as a teen, jesus healed people, jesus prayed, jesus was vegitarian. The list goes on but most of these are very private and personal for me…but please ask a born Rasta if you want confirmation. Not someone who said they became Rasta at 25. Most Rastas know when they are children or in their teens that they are Rasta and dont express it till much later.
So what was the final draw between this non Rastaman and my self?
He threw garlic at me, and called me a devil worshipper, not because I talked to a psychic, but because the psychic was white. Thats just stupid, and we are not Racist, we have a love for all humanity. Bob Marley was half white, so I guess this jerk hates half of Bob Marley. So, dumb. ….Any comments….leave them at the bottom
Junior Kelly sings Rasta Should Be Deeper
Here is just some of the lines from the song “deeper-rasta should be deeper” by Junior Kelly
- “you must care about the people”
- “I am my brothers keeper”
- “its like their changing everything that Rasta is all about”
- “true love, positivity…”
- “much much more than to say “Selassi” and “Marcus I”
- “Me nuh do dis fi image, me nuh mimic, me nuh do dis fi fame”
Is dating outside your Race a form of self hate? I began to wonder about this after I watched a video on YouTube, on a talk show, about white women who say they can “please a black man, better than a black woman can.” There was one guest who came on and said “…you don’t date your own kind because you hate your self, if you loved your self, you would want somebody just like you…” That got me thinking…
Black men dating white women has become the latest fad in my town
More and more african american men are opting to date white women. Is it self hate? is it status?..is it because he thinks it makes him “more acceptable” to whites? Perhaps all of the above. Perhaps none of the above. Maybe some black men are dating white women because this is who they have fallen in love with, and her color is irrelevant.
I think any kind of “exclusive” dating is “hate and racism”, and prejudgment. To assume that you wont like a person, or that you can’t see your self having sex with a certain group, or excluding one group completely as a “no dating” group – this is a form of hate. If you do this to a race that happens to be your own…then yes this is self hate…I know because I have thought this way in the past.
Why is it more acceptable for a black woman to date a white?
It seems to be more accepted as “love” when a black woman and a white man are dating, but not if the man is black and the woman is white. Why? Could it be that the black woman, is seen as “being given a better opportunity” or that white men are seen as “more capable” of true love, therefore it must be a true relationship. I wonder.
black women dating asian men
I have noticed a lot more asian men with black women now a days…is this the latest fad for single black women dating? As a Rastafarian woman, I believe you should be with whoever you love. I mean really love. Not the type of love that is here today and gone tomorrow because someone gains a few inches in the middle section. Real love doesn’t notice weight gain, or other little silly things that people often say is the reason they fell out of love. If an asian man and a black woman truly love each other, then nothing and no body should stop them from being together.
So is dating outside your race a form of self hate?
It can be, if you are dating the other person to ignore who you are or to avoid your own heritage, culture, or ethnicity. It can be if you hate one or both of your parents and have vowed consciously or unconsciously not to have children of your culture / race. It can be if you can’t call your self your ethnicity out loud and say ” I am ______ and I am proud!” and mean it. Dating outside your race is not always a form of self hate, but it can be if you are doing it for the wrong reasons.
Thanks for reading my thoughts have a pleasant evening.
read some random opinions on this subject, click here.
It is my firm belief that rastafarian couples have some of the most sound relationships. Why? Because they have a commonality, or love understanding, and commitment, which stems from their belief in God. Now I am speaking of Jamaican rastafarians. This is what I am, this is what I am familiar with.marriage advice rastafari tips and advice for men and women
50% of american marriages end in divorce – this is what the stats say
This is a fact and maybe that percentage has actually grown since the last time I checked. This is often because the ingredients were not there in the first place to make the marriage a success. What are the ingredients of successful marriage? From my spiritual perspective….
rastafarians with other rastafarians
Many rastas like to date and settle down with other rastafarians. Marriage to us is the fact that we are with this person, committed to the relationship, and sharing our selves with this person in a way we do not with others. Please note, I am a jamaican rasta, so my views are different from those of say, an american rasta.
I cannot date someone outside of my rasta spiritual beliefs
It is difficult for me, as a dread, to date outside of my spiritual beliefs. I absolutely cannot do it! Even if I tried, I could not do it. As a rastafarian women, to have a rastfarian man in my life is extremely important. Not because this is part of some written doctrine, but because I need to be with someone who understands me through and through. My spirituality is a very important part of who I am. I want to share this aspect of my self with another dread, and him sharing his self with me. Most rastafarian women of Jamaican heritage feel this way.

relationships of yesterday can effect marriages of today
I feel western society is spoiled, and when you have had many partners in your life time, people cannot see their partners anymore. Sometimes we only see what we want our partners to be. So we go for an upgrade. Sometimes this means a divorce, sometimes it means extra marital affairs, sometimes it means somebody younger, slimmer, with more money. The point is we need to start accepting the one we are with as the one we chose. And allow that person to be who they are. Is god a part of your marriage?
Is god a part of your marriage or relationship?
Is god a part of your marriage or relationship? The difference between a rastafarian couple having a relationship and a non rastafarian couple is, the way we love god is constant. We stay true to his teachings and the rules of the bible. We make love num#1 in all things we do daily. Love all things as creations of God and perhaps your relationships and or marriage, will be a lot healthier!A marriage should be about love, understanding and communication…this is the basis for a good healthy bond…rastafari! don’t get married, unless you both really want to here are some pointers for a healthy happy relationship…
- discuss everything
- make honesty a priority no matter what the subject
- decide to stay commited to the relationship
- share bible verses and bible readings together

If you are dating a rastafarian…
If you have the privilege of dating a rastafarian man or woman, you are a “lucky son of a …..” Really, i mean that… you most likely have someone who is 100 % committed to the relationship and who loves you like no other will. Rastafarians can be, and are pure love in human form. Not only that, chances are they see you the way god sees you. It doesn’t get better than that.

Marriage – a rastafarian perspective
Do rastafarians believe in marriage? We don’t make a big deal about getting married, but most of us who are involved in serious relationships with people who are say, christian, or catholic ( non Rastafarians) we have very little issue with getting married if it’s what will make our partner happy. The success any relationship, Rastafarians believe, is a healthy loving relationship is about the commitment of the 2 people involved, from the heart.
what does it really mean to get married?
My question as a rastafarian woman to the people reading this is…what does it really mean to get married anyway? It doesn’t come with any “guarantees”. Relationships should be a bout love and only love. I feel many people who get married now a days, do so for reasons other than just love.
list of some of wrong reasons a couple might get married
- all their friends are married
- for financial gain from the marriage
- to be able to say, “I am married”
- to have their own wedding
- to feel more secure in the relationship
- to prevent child rearing out-of-wedlock

rastafari is my confidence: Wherever I go I know your love, I know you never forsake me, you always listen, and you always know. For this I am always confident, for thru you I know my self, and my purpose
rastafari keeps me inline: You let me know right from wrong. I stand strong in you. Others do not understand, but you chose me, and this is an honor, that I too, must honor. Read Rasta Way of life
rastafari is God, and God is love!
We are the God people of today yesterday and tomorrow. I wanted to tell all rastafaria tribute, is my way of paying respect to the men of the Rastaman of the rastafai culutre
God made you! We loved your works. Your many songs of love. Many songs about Jah and zion. One of my favorite songs created by you is “punky reggae party” I think I love this song, because it could almost not be reggae music. But you have that way about you dear Bob, to take a song and make it “splash!” Punky reggae party is almost like where reggae meets punk music or funk music but not quite. You and your creative genius, and of course Jah created this unique piece or art.
Many called you a genius, but I know you worked with a genius. Its ok this is our job as Rastafarians, to deliver the message of jah to all nations, you did it well mr Bob Marley, very well.
We will not forget you, How can we …your musical “genius” lives on. Jah Rastafari!!!
God made you! The ladies love you! You are the son of the great legend” Bob Marley”. You too have the creative genius, or the musical gift. I only learned of you in 2006,
when you hit song “Welcome to jamrock” was playing in Montreal, in cars driving by and on the radio. I heard that song and it made me want to dance! I then saw the music video, and was in awe of this young talented man whose “locks” where swaying in the video, almost touching the ground. The girls on the internet say you are “cute”, I say you were designed to look this way with a purpose. I am honored to know you are rastafarian like me. Another messenger of Jah roams the earth. Respect to you Mr. Damian….Rastafari
You are my favorite rastaman singer. I love all of your songs. From “I am a Rastaman” to “all night till Day Light” your fans love your for your honesty your lyrics and your lively performances where you connected with your audience without hesitation or thought for what others in high places would think. Mr Miller I plan to name a pet cat after you some day. I will call him Mr. Miller. You are another example of the works of Jah.
You blow my mind. You are truly a blessing to this planet. I saw a video on youtube on how you are responsible for a place in Jamaica where rastfarians live and are educated by a rastfarian priest, On the teachings of Rastafari, so that they themselves may educate the people. You also mentioned the children as being the future, and that we must raise them up with the values of rastafari and protect them from uncleanlieness and wickedness of bablylon. Mr. Sizzla you are….very special. You are doing what God intended for people with money to do – help the ones who do not. Thank Mr. Sizzla.
Mr. Brown, you are my biggest rasta man crush. God I think you are cute, with your classic “black” wide nose, and beautiful lucious lips, and your “natty dreadlocks”, and smooth angelic like voice. Looking at a picture of you makes my heart beat fast, oh my! I wish I could have met you. you made many love songs that made us all wonder and think “what must that have been like?” From “silhouettes” to “cheater” You made us think and ponder relationships and deep love, with songs like “how could I leave you” and “aint that lovin you” Many of these songs were written by others. Mr. Brown the way you sang these songs, you made them your own. I grew up listening to you as a child, having no idea you were rasta. That smooth voice, those smooth words, I should have known. The biggest part of your musical recognition is that, dance halls now use your songs, to “christen” the songs to come as a way, of creating a feeling of greatness in the room. Many of you Jamaicans know what I am talking about. For those of you who dont, jus know only a few reggae artists have that type of recognition in the reggae music world. Dennis, you came to teach us about jah, and the natural magnetic love between men and women, and that love lives, and creates memories in all of us. Mr. Brown I love You.
“hey rastaman…hey what you say give me some of you sensi!” Biggup to all rastaman, I am so happy you roam the earth. I never really knew you until age 20. Now I know a rastaman is the best man – well at least for me as a rasta woman.
To all rasta man who were not named here, you are beautiful and unique. Jah mek you. Continue to be you, continue to love, Jah depends on you. One love to all. Jah bless.
Many see your red eyes after some herb smoking, the colors you wear, your red yellow and green, your long dreadlocks, hear your Jamaican patois, and hear the intelligence of your words. But many will never really know the greatness of the almighty Jah, that resides inside of you. Read Rasta Way of Life
Jah Ras Tafari!!
