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

  1. Skirts and dresses as Feminine Clothing : Rasta women dress to embrace their feminine qualities. As Empress being able to carry life is a gift from Jah the creator. Wearing skirts only helps to separate us as divine feminine from our Masculine counter parts. Being a woman is a Joy, Rasta women do not wear pants. We enjoy long skirts to our ankles, they may be tight or loose depending our mood and our duties for that day.
  2. Red Yellow and Green Rasta Colors”: Red Yellow and Green are the spiritual colors of Rastafari. We Rastafari wear, “Rasta Colors” in our clothing, In our Jewelry, and Decorate our homes in Rasta Colors too. Rasta colors, mean, love, unity and togetherness. These colors are also found on the Rastafari Lion of Judah Flag. Ttypically Rasta women do not wear pink, however we do if we can match it with a head wrap, for example to give the pink ensemble a “more cultured” appearance. Dressing as a Rasta Woman is all about balance. Don’t forget to check out my “Rastafari Rules for Women” Blog Post
  3. If Tight… no exposed skin: Some Rasta women wear tight clothing, however there are 2 rules that apply #1: No showing of the skin if the garment is tight. #2: The buttocks and Breast area must be clearly covered, so as not to accentuate or define these areas. Rasta women must not resemble prostitutes, or women of Babylon as we Represent Jah and his holiness at all times.
  4. 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.
  5. Make-up to a minimum: Rasta women wear makeup only if and meet rasta black womanwhen they have to. 3 Basic rules: Rule#1: Natural Tones, and colors. Rule#2: No lining of the eyes *SCRIPTURE:When Jezebel, the queen mother, heard that Jehu had come to Jezreel, she painted her eyelids and fixed her hair and sat at a window…”* We Rasta women know eye liner is to attract sexual attention from men, and is a type of make typically used by prostitutes. Just leave your eyes normal. Rule#3: Limit the amount of various makeup products. My personal limit is 3. Foundation, lipstick, Eyebrow pencil. That’s only because Rasta women are not allowed to “pluck” their eyebrows as all hair on the body is considered sacred, in Rastafari.
  6. 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.
  7. Rasta women and tights: There will be days when you don’t feel like wearing a skirt. THE MAIN things to consider are, who will I be around today? What activities will I be doing today? Will I be with my Kids? Will there be men around whom I don’t know? Wil I be with My King? When you are with your King all rules apply, but its ok to wear some tights and a long top. As long as effort is made to cover the life portal, and the back area which tend to be round and enticing to men, then you could rock some tights.
  8. Rasta Women’s and T_shirts: Rasta women can wear t-shirts.
    Buy this Rasta Womans t-shirt

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

  9. Rasta Woman’s  Clothing is Her Uniform: A Rasta womans clothing is her uniform, just like a Rasta mans outfit is his uniform. I like people to know right away when they look at me that, a) I respect my self, b)I represent a spiritual cause and movement,  c)My clothing is a reflection of my mind and thoughts, d)I am not a part of the heathen or heathen mentality, e) my self-esteem is not dependent on my sensuality, or what others I don’t know think of me. Phew, that is a lot. But, Rasta women take their faith seriously. Whats the point other wise?  Empress Menen is my feminine Divine Mentor. Only her, I try to Mimic, nobody else.
  10. 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.

Introduction

 

Every Rastaman was given life to walk the face of the earth as a “messenger of Jah.” He knows that in the physical he has been ordained to live as a humble spiritual King.  For this reason all Rasta man know, there are many things in this life he must refrain from partaking in.

Rasta Kings are Chosen at Conception

A Rasta man is “chosen at conception” to keep his mind, spirit and body clean to ensure, upon his transition, he may be deemed, clean, holy and  acceptable to enter Mount Zion.

This book was created for men who know that they too are Kings, and know that a true King has a special and unique, way of thinking, living and being. May Jah bless you on the journey, as you live the way of life as a Rastafari King.

Blessed Love. King Selassie I.

 

Rasta King Way of Life:

5 Things Rasta men teach their Rasta Children

  1. Rasta King teach his children to love &  Fear Jah – Rasta King’s children learn very young, that there is a consequence for every action. That there is one who sees and knows all things good and bad. His name is Jah, the almighty creator.
  2. Rasta King Teach his “Rasta Love” – Rasta children are taught that other nations are their brothers and sisters under Jah. With them we must share, be respectful, and live harmoniously, even if culture or skin color is different. This is how we as Rastafari share “Rasta Love.”
  1. Rasta King Teach his children to Study black leaders – As soon as Rasta children are old enough to read on their own, they are taught to study the lives of black leaders. Such studies teach Rasta children about, equality, helps to build strength, perseverance, character, and wisdom, as their personalities are molding. Rasta children will learn to see themselves as “here to make a difference”  rather than here to be “self indulgent, in Babylon”.
  2. Rasta King Teach His children to be Proud of their Roots & Culture – Rasta Children learn that their heritage is a gift. One of which they should be proud and that Black slavery was an “interruption” in African history, not African history itself. All Rasta children regardless of their ethnicity learn about African Roots Culture and History.
  3. Rasta King Teach his children to be Patient kind and humble  – Patience comes from fearing jah, and reading his words. Rasta King teach his children to be humble, not arrogant before Jah, and to take an interest in the holy bible.
  4. Rasta King teach their Children to be Respectful – Rasta Children are taught to be Respectful to the elderly and the weak/meek. Rasta King teach his children that, in this way Rasta children are blessed in this life, and save up rewards with the Most High Jah, by these actions.
  5. Rasta King Teach his children to Say “no” to Babylon… – Babylon offers everything. To be a true King or Rasta Queen one must be speculative. Rasta King teach his Children that, not everything is for Royalty, but that all is for the heathen. Lust, lies, whoredom, self hate, wickedness etc. Rasta children must pause, and think, before saying “yes” to all things.
  6. Rasta King Teach his children to Read the King James Version Bible daily: Rasta King knows that one can acquire, wisdom, and knowledge, from reading the King James version bible. A Rasta King encourages his Rasta child to start reading the King James Version bible between age  10-13 on his/her own. Before, then he himself will read the bible to his child explaining the verses and text in a simplistic manner as he reads. Rasta King knows he is raising an Empress or King, and that requires time effort and love.

Overcoming Bad Relationships: Lenon Honor & Wife

  1. Facebook (social media) can keep you locked in old patterns – Some people that we know through or on Facebook, may have negative expectations of us as people (perhaps from their past experiences with us)
  2. People might not accept our positive changes – Sometimes people just want you to be on the same (low) level as them. Or they may want to hold you back to make themselves feel better.
  3. Discernment when choosing a life partner – sometimes we find ourselves attracted to someone, but if we be honest with ourselves we will know that person is no good for us as a life partner. We need to have discernment or allow discernment from those that love us when choosing a partner. *(to a certain extent of course.
  4. Positive change comes from you – Positive change comes from you, its a decision you make and decide to embrace. There are others who are willing to do the same.

Psalm 103star of david prayer book

Bless the LORD, O my soul; And all that is within me, bless His holy name! Bless the LORD, O my soul, And forget not all His benefits: Who forgives all your iniquities, Who heals all your diseases, Who redeems your life from destruction, Who crowns you with loving-kindness and tender mercies, Who satisfies your mouth with good things, So that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s. The LORD executes righteousness and justice for all who are oppressed. He made known His ways to Moses, His acts to the children of Israel.

The LORD is merciful and gracious, Slow to anger, and abounding in mercy. He will not always strive with us, nor will He kept His anger forever. He has not dealt with us according to our sins, nor punished us according to our iniquities. For as the heavens are high above the earth, So great is His mercy toward those who fear Him; As far as the east is from the west, So far has He removed our transgressions from us. As a father pities his children, so the LORD pities those who fear Him. For He knows our frame; He remembers that we are dust. As for man, his days are like grass; as a flower of the field, so he flourishes. For the wind passes over it, and it is gone, And its place remembers it no more. But the mercy of the LORD is from everlasting to everlasting on those who fear Him, And His righteousness to children’s children, to such as keep His covenant, And to those who remember His commandments to do them. The LORD has established His throne in heaven, and His kingdom rules over all. Bless the LORD, you His angels, Who excel in strength, who do His word, Heeding the voice of His word. Bless the LORD, all you His hosts, You ministers of His, who do His pleasure. Bless the LORD, all His works, In all places of His dominion.

twelve tribes of israel

Blessed Love to each and every one. In the name of His Imperial Majesty, Emperor Haile Selassie I.

I found you guys really liked my blog post about King Dawitt King of Ethiopia(1507-1540), so I thought I would look up some more information pertaining to Rastafari for you.

I really didn’t know what the Twelve Tribes of Israel meant as it pertains to Rastafari, so I looked it up in a book called…”Rastafari: A very Short Introduction.”

Here is what I learned.

The Prophet Gad (aka Vernon Carrington) , founder of the Rastafari group called the Twelve Tribes of Israel, believed that his mission was to reconstitute the ancient Hebrew tribes that bore the names of the sons of Jacob. Based on their birth month, all the members are assigned to a tribe and associated with a certain characteristic:

I had to read that twice to really get it. I immediately understood that Gad, was a prophet.

Tribe Birth Month Characteristic
Reuben April/Nisan Strength
Simeon May/Iyar Faith
Levi June/Sivan Will
Judah July/Tammuz Praise
Issachar August/Av Zeal
Zebulon September/Elus Order and Compassion
Dan October/Tishri Judgement
Gad November/Heshvan Power
Asher December/Kislev Understanding
Napthali January/Tevet Love
Joseph February/Shevat Imagination
Benjamin March/Adar Elimination

Upon Further Reading:

 

  • The Twelve Tribes of Israel Mansion of Rastafari was founded in 1968
  • Prophet Gad was reading the bible and receive a call from Jah, to “Reunify the Lost Tribes of Israel”
  • They follow the Hebrew Calendar that Starts in April and ends in March

 Beliefs of the Twelve Tribes of Israel:

Jesus Christ vs.King Selassie I

 

prophet gad twelve tribes

The Twelve Tribes are often dubbed “Christian Rasta’s” because while other Rasta’s tend to repudiate Jesus Christ, associating him with the Jesus of Lubeck, One of “John Hawkins” slave ships, Twelve Tribes members insist that Jesus Christ of the new testament, is the messiah and the only savior of humankind. To them Selassie was a Divine King from the same Linage as King David, Full filling the biblical prophecy, “The scepter shall not depart from Judah, nor a lawgiver from between his feet until Shiloh come, and unto him shall the gathering of the people be”(Genesis 49:10) He was a twentieth Century Representative of Jesus Christ, but he was not the expected messiah who will return in the bodily form in which he ascended into heaven.

This was very interesting for me to read. I had no idea about what the Twelve Tribes of Israel Rastas Believed before today. As for me? King Selassie I has filled up my life with so much beauty wonder and awe. I will leave you on that note. I have a “Jah Rastafari Prayer book” coming out. It should be on amazon.com any day now.

I want to thank you for reading this blog post. Share it if you find it interesting.

King Selassie I & Empress Menen Too. Now that I am older, I find I appreciate my faith a lot more. I really know the true beauty, blessing and wonder of Rastafari.

  2. His Dreadlocks crown– My husband is a Rastafari, so he wears his hair in dreadlocks. I love it. I play with his locks sometimes. They are a reminder of the natural beauty of Jah creations.
  3. Rasta Reggae Music – Now I have someone to share my love of Rasta Reggae with. Almost every song I know and love he knows and loves too. Together we have created a beautiful collection of roots and culture music.
  4. Sexy and fit – My husband is so fit and sexy. He doesn’t even try as most Jamaican men don’t try to be fit. He has a washboard stomach, and he is lean and cut. Lucky me I guess.
  5. He promotes healthy eating – My Rasta husband is always reminding me of the importance of eating healthy and how it can encourage strength and a long life. I think its great because I was very much addicted to eating food out of a package.
  6. He Loves Jah – My Rasta husband loves Jah. He is always giving thanks to Jah, and sharing Jah teachings and Jah wisdom. I have somebody around me to share my love of Jah with.
  7. 0b04eab162db048d28eea8e63c2d415cHe Teaches me about Rastafari – Just when I thought I knew everything…My Rasta husband teaches me things about Rastafari I didn’t know at all. Like one day he mentioned the “Rainbow Circle Throne” Google it!
  8. The sweet Smell of Herb – The smell of some good Sensimillia in my home. I love the smell of most marijuana. It’s like a sweet Jah created incense for the senses and the soul. My Rasta husband smokes herb everyday about 6 times for the day. I enjoy it too…the smell I mean.
  9. The Companionship – It’s fun having a husband. He is like a friend and a lover in one. I have someone to share my thoughts etc with. Sometimes its fun and sometimes you just have to learn and practice patience and tolerance. Sharing the same spiritual beliefs Helps a lot.

Rasta Way of Life for Children

  1. Equality of the Nations – All cultures and nations and their beliefs and way of life are equal to yours and dreadlockssignificant
  2. RasTafari are Role Models – That King Selassie I and Empress Menen are our role Models as Rasta people.
  3. The name of the Creator – That the creators name is “Jah” and that King Selassie I is his Elect.
  4. All people are Jah People – That all people are Africans because the first man Jah created was a black African, there for all people are African because we share the same ancestral root.
  5. Clean Living – That Zion is our home as Rasta, and that we must live clean and righteous to enter Zion.

Because Rastafari is not a Religion, raising a Rasta child, is more about sharing the light of Rastafari with your child, until they come of age to acknowledge the teachings of Rastafari on their own.

 New blog post: 6 Rules to cook Ital Rasta food.

The Rastafari way of life has many restrictions

  • We do not eat meat
  • We do not smoke cigarettes
  • We do not have sex to relieve sexual tensions (we make love)
  • We do not believe in a lust driven life
  • We are non materialistic
  • We make Jah the focus of all that we do and say each day.
  • We donate to the poor and needy
  • We do not believe e in hording moneyblack man black woman cartoon

I have also written Rastafari Beliefs and principles, my newest ebook. I have come to understand that this book is not for everyone. This is not a book of entertainment. It is a book of truth. The truth is not for everyone. Some people do not know what to do with themselves when faces with the truth, so they get angry if it does not give them information to inflate their ego. This may sound arrogant but there are a lot of arrogant people who want to say they are Rasta.

Rastafari livity is for everyone but please only embrace this faith if you want to do it completely and forever. Rastafari is not a Religion but Jah is so real. He does not like to be disrespected. Well, it is his job to bring Judgement on the people who want to say “Yes, I am Rasta” and then break the covenant, not mine. I write my books to bring the light to the people…that is my job, what they do with the light after that is their own Judgment.

How to cook Ital Rasta food: 6 Rules

How to cook Ital Rasta Food with 6 Tips

jamaican ackee and saltfish

    1. No Meat: – As Rasta we do not eat or cook beef, pork, shell fish, or anything that has a hoof and chews a cud. Insert bible verse
    2. No Salt: – and we do not cook with salt. This is what makes the food Ital. Natural and clean. Overuse of salt, has. If rasta must use salt we usebecome a rasta, i want to be a rasta sea salt only
    3. Abundance of Flavor: – When Rasta cook we aim to make the food flavorful without the use of salt. We use allspice, or we use onion garlic, thyme and tomato pimento, scallion, black pepper, coconut for flavor. Many Jamaican and Caribbean foods are cooked with this vegetable and spice combination.
    4. Fish with Scales: Many Rasta love to eat fish, and some Rasta are Vegan. It is a rule from the bible for our spirituality (the nazirite vow) (deutoronomy and numbers) that we only eat fish with scales. Salt fish, red herring, king fish, are some Rastafari favorites. Rasta do not eat shell fish, such as shrimp, or lobster, or crab, as they clean the bottom of the sea, and are therfor unclean for Rasta to eat.
    5. Protein and greens:ackee-and-saltfishRasta know it is important to eat a diet that promotes strength, especially when one is vegetarian or vegan. Rasta love to incorporate forms of protein and greens and other strength building foods in with their cooking such as beans, peas, nuts and greens, such as calaloo, okra, Yam,green banana, and broccoli.
    6. Color and texture: – There is an old saying “People eat with their eyes” You may mix some yellow ackee, with some green calaloo. Or dash some orange pumpkin in with white rice, Jah likes when we include various colored and textured food because it allows us enjoy the food exactly the way the earth grows the food for us.

5 Rastafari views and Principles on Money


tumblr_ngzdsbxUzM1u1kvguo1_500

  1. Money is a tool – Money is a tool. As Rasta we know not to fall in love, or to fall into lust with the journey. Money is simply a means to an end. Use it to accomplish another goal. Perhaps to purchase a house, to feed a family, or to buy a new Bob Marley or Dennis Brown cd to meditate to.
  2. Money is to serve and help others – I cannot count the amount of blessings Jah has brought into my life, simply because I exercise this Rasta principle. I use money to serve others by giving money away to homeless people living on the street. I use to do it twice a month, but now I try to do this once a week. Rasta knows to use his money to help and serve those who are in need.
  3. Money is not to be hoarded – Another key to prosperity that many people do not realize, but that is part of the Rastafari livity, is that money is not to be hoarded. Under Rastafari to be wealthy and to save it in a back account is a sin. In other words, according to the desires of Jah, money is to be given away. Take advantage of as many opportunities as possible to give money away. Rasta knows that to savemoney in the back is a form of hoarding, and selfishness and fearfulness. What type people and experiences do you think you will create if you carry such thoughts and beliefs in your aura. As Rasta we spend money freely and give away money freely (without expecting it back) because we know Jah provides, and Jah always provides us with more.
  4. Money is neither good nor evil – Rasta knows it’s not the money jah rasta prayersthat is actually evil…its the way the person uses it. Rasta doesn’t believe money is the root of all evil. We believe money is good because it can help us create more opportunities to serve Jah. Money is neither good, nor evil…its how we use it that makes it so.
  5. Money is not life – Rasta know money is not life. Many people live as if they will live forever. They think that money is everything in this life. Money is not life. It has been said that Bob Marley said on his death-bed “money can’t buy life.” Exactly. So, I try to keep in mind that money is money, and that life is life. I try to take in and recognize those beautiful moment in my life and cherish them as they happen. Like the time I took my 4-year-old step son to KFC and he tried to eat the who chicken breast in two bites as his face was full of ketchup. I enjoyed that moment. I watched him in what felt like, slow motion, and that is a moment I will never forget. No amount of money could equate to  the experience for me.

How to cook Ital Rasta food: 6 Rules

how to keep a rasta happy

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

  1. Don’t Curse and swear – Rasta do not like the sound of swear words, or put downs, or anything that is said with a malicious or negative intent. Use positive words to express your self or simply leave out the swearing and negative intent. Rasta are sensitive beings.
  2. Show Love to Children and The Elderly – Rasta love to care for the poor, needy, elderly and children. If you care for persons from this group, this will make your Rasta very happy.
  3. Spend time alone – Spend time alone with stimulation from something or someone else. Rasta believes that time alone is time with God. Embrace it.
  4. Respect his or her alone time – Respect when your Rasta is a lone.  A Rastafari spiritual and personal time is of the utmost importance. Rasta have spiritual times, that last for hours, or for days… If you can handle that…your Rasta will be quite happy.
  5. Love God (Jah) – A true Rastafari who loves and respects his partner  will want him/her to have their own faith, and Rasta takes simple comfort in the fact that they love God, and have their own personal relationship with him.
  6. how to keep a rastaman happyPlay Rasta Reggae Music – Rastafari men and women love to hear Rastafari Reggae music playing. It makes them feel good inside. Try playing some Rasta Reggae music to show your Rasta that you care and that you are sensitive to their needs and desires. Try some Dennis Brown, Some Gregory Isaacs, or even some “old school” Garnett Silk. Your Rasta will smile to be surprised by these spiritual sounds.

  7. Seek to “Overstand”
    – Seek to understand situations rather than get angry or become offended. Rasta love when people are patient and seek deeper “understanding” of things.
  8. Never discuss S*x – Rasta do not believe in discussing s*xual issues. We believe if your mate, is not a good match for you in this way…it is your fate. We use clean words for s*x, and we don’t seek to pervert or amplify sexual encounters. Rasta sees s*x as love-making.
  9. Buy Gifts that are Rastafari – Rasta like gifts that are red yellow and green, related to Africa, or have a picture of Marcus Garvey, King Selassie I, or Bob Marley on it. When searching for a gift for your Rasta keep this in mind. Rasta love Rasta hats, and Rasta beaded necklaces in case you were wondering. These types of gifts make Rasta feel happy inside.
  10. Respect your Rasta personal space and items – don’t change or touch or move anything that belongs to a Rasta. It may have spiritual meaning. Such an action may be taken personally, but Rasta are so gentle that they would never say. Keep your Rasta happy and dont touch or move personal items.
  11. Don’t ask too many questions about his/her faith – Just accept Rasta as they are….I guarantee the Rasta in your life is accepting you as you are! So, why not return the favor? Don’t ask to many questions about his/her faith…it supposed to be a personal thing anyway right?
  12. Embrace Cleanliness – Rasta like all things “clean.” Rasta love toRastafari live in a clean home, have on clean clothes, eat clean food, use clean language, and to maintain clean thoughts. That the Rastafari way of life.
  13. Love your Self“Self Love” is one of the basic principles of Rastafari. By loving your self, Rasta show you more love for accepting your self the way that Jah created you.

Love and Blessings. Don’t forget to check out my new book entitled “Convert to Rastafari” where I explain how to think like a true Rasta, and overstand the true image of God as explained by Bob Marley himself.

  1. Only Skirts – It is encouraged that Rastafari women were strictly skirts. This is seen as embracing the feminine quality as we steer away from emulating the appearance of men (which “emulation” is a sin in the bible)
  2. Pants as disrespect – Some Rastafari women do wear pants but it is highly discouraged and seen as disrespect to the faith, and he Creator who designed you as a woman.
  3. Babylon Colors For Clothing – Rasta women may wear any colors except for pink, blue and purple. Red Yellow Green Black and White are encouraged, as these are Rasta Colors.
  4. Hats and head wraps – A hat may be worn on days when hair is not wrapped. This is to cover the root of the dreadlocks, the most important part of the energy which leaves the head. If a head wrap cannot be worn, a hat is encouraged. Dreadlocks of an Empress uncovered may be seen as “slack.” and not upholding the faith. Check out my Blog post called “How to Dress Like a Rasta Woman.”

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.

Biblical Awareness of Rastafari


As you convert to Rastafari it is imperative that you study and know the king James Version bible from front to back.   Abraham is where the Covenant starts.

 

Jah Covenant with Abraham – Genesis 17

Rastafari is a Covenant just like the Covenant that Jah made with Abraham

 

“…17 When Abram was 99 years old, the Lord appeared to Abram and said to him, “I am Almighty God; walk before Me and be blameless. 2 And I will make My covenant between Me and you, and will multiply you exceedingly.” 3 Then Abram fell on his face, and God talked with him, saying: 4 “As for Me, behold, My covenant is with you, and you shall be a father of many nations. 5 No longer shall your name be called Abram, but your name shall be Abraham; for I have made you a father of many nations. 6 I will make you exceedingly fruitful; and I will make nations of you, and kings shall come from you. 7 And I will establish My covenant between Me and you and your descendants after you in their generations, for an everlasting covenant, to be God to you and your descendants after you. 8 Also I give to you and your descendants after you the land in which you are a stranger, all the land of Canaan, as an everlasting possession; and I will their God.

 

Test Questions: Jah Covenant with Abraham

  1. How old was Abraham when Jah appeared before him? ____________________
  2. What did Jah establish between himself and Abraham?____________________
  3. What was Abraham’s name before Jah changed it to Abraham____________________

  2. What did Jah establish between himself and Abraham? A Covenant
  3. What was Abraham’s name before Jah changed it to Abraham? Abram
  4. What is the name of the Land Jah promised Abraham and his descendants? Canaan

The Birth of the Rastafari Faith

On November 2nd 1930, King Selassie I, a Black Ethiopian man of Solomonic Lineage, was Crowned “King of Ethiopia.” From that day forward Marcus Garvey was Hailed as a Prophet, to the Rastafari Peoples, for his “prophetic words” concerning the crowing of Emperor Haile Selassie I,  and The Rastafari faith was born.

 

What was the prophetic statement Marcus Garvey made about the up and coming crowning of King Selassie I?

Overstanding

 

What does Rasta Know?

This Rastafari Study Booklet was written for those who want to learn about Rastafari and know what every Rasta knows. I have written out the Questions for you…so that you may read and answer them in your own mind as you come upon the answers to the Questions in the paragraph text.

 

Rasta “Reasoning”

Rastafari is not a Religion but a way of life. To learn and study Rastafari is not a Requirement of the Livity, however if you should meet another Rasta The two of you You may engage in what’s known as a “Rastafari Reasoning SEssion.” in the hopes that you may “enlighten” one another with your perspective.

 

Rasta Overstanding!

King Selassie I Visit to Jamaica (Wikipedia)

 

Haile Selassie visited Jamaica on Thursday, 21 April 1966. Some 100,000 Rastafari from all over Jamaica descended on Palisadoes Airport in Kingston,[1] having heard that the man whom they considered to be God was coming to visit them. They waited at the airport playing drums and smoking large quantities of marijuana.[1] Today the Rastafarians celebrate that Haile Selassie visited Jamaica on April 21st, known as “Groundation day.”

 

When Haile Selassie’s Ethiopian Airlines flight landed at the airport at 1:30 PM, the crowd surrounded his plane on the tarmac. The day had been overcast and stormy. After about half an hour, the door swung open and the emperor appeared at the top of the mobile steps. A deafening tumult was heard from the crowd, who beat calabash drums, lit firecrackers, waved signs, and sounded Abeng horns of the Maroons.[2] All protocol was dropped as the crowd pressed past the security forces and onto the red carpet that had been laid out for the reception. Selassie waved from the top of the steps; some interpreters have claimed that he shed tears, although this is disputed. He then returned into the plane, disappearing for several more minutes. Finally Jamaican authorities were obliged to request Ras Mortimer Planno, a well-known Rasta leader, to climb the steps, enter the plane, and negotiate the

Emperor’s descent.[3] When Planno reemerged, he announced to the crowd: “The Emperor has instructed me to tell you to be calm. Step back and let the Emperor land”[4] After Planno escorted the African monarch down the steps, journalists were puzzled by Selassie’s refusal to walk on the red carpet on the way to his limousine. [hence grounation,Iyaric equivalent of foundation, “uplifted” with the sound of the word ground in the sense of “making contact with the soil”] He was then driven to theKing’s House, the residence ofGovernor-GeneralClifford Campbell.[5]

As a result of Planno’s actions, the Jamaican authorities were asked to ensure that Rastafarian representatives were present at all state functions attended by His Majesty,[6][7] and Rastafari elders, including Planno and probablyJoseph Hibbert, also obtained a private audience with the Emperor,[8] where he reportedly told them that they should not immigrate to Ethiopia until they had first liberated the people of Jamaica. This dictum came to be known as “liberation beforerepatriation”. At a dinner held at the King’s House, Rastas claimed that acting Jamaican Prime MinisterDonald Sangster had stamped his foot at Lulu, Haile Selassie’s pet chihuahua, who, they swore, had responded with the roar of a lion.[9]

Defying expectations of the Jamaican authorities,[10] Selassie never rebuked the Rastafari for their belief in him as theMessiah. Instead, he presented the movement’s faithful elders with gold medallions bearing the Ethiopian seal – the only recipients of such an honour on this visit.[9][11] Meanwhile, he presented some of the Jamaican politicians, including Sangster, with miniature coffin-shaped cigarette boxes.[5]

7 Reasons Why People Become Rastafari?


#1 Their Parents are Rastafari

Why people become rasta
Rastafari facts and Rasta Information

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

#2 Bob Marley the Prophet was a Rasta

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

#3 Their Born with it!

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

 

Rasta_Way_of_Life_Cover_for_Kindle

#4 Jah Chose them to Be Rasta…

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

#5 It Just Makes sense to them!

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

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

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

#5 Their Significant other is Rasta

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

#6 Rastafari  is their Culture

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

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

#7 To Embrace holistic Lifestyle

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

How to Convert to Rastafari


how to convert to Rastafari

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

Rastafari is a Journey….

rasta-mediation-handbook-book-coverThere will be trials and tribulations as Rasta. Some people don’t like people with locks. They may judge you as lazy, or dirty, or militant, or out of touch with reality. Rasta knows loving Jah is all about the journey, we accept the good with the bad, always looking forward to Zion. So…Just so you know.

Rastas are trying to enter Zion….

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

Rasta love Africa/Ethiopiaafrica ethiopia

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

Rasta Love King Selassie I

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

Rastas are the King James Version Bible….

Rastas are the King James Version Bible. I say are because loving Jah is the life you live. Every Faucet of your life. There are no exceptions. Rasta think Jah. Rasta love Jah. Rasta Serve Jah. Rasta dress Jah. Rasta need Jah. Rastas are humble before Jah. The King James Version bible gives guidelines and advice for all that concerns us, Rasta in life. Read the King James Version bible from beginning to end. Then Keep rereading it, from beginning to end, for the rest of your life. This is what Rasta do. We, Rasta are the King James Version Bible….Living by the words inside….accepting the wisdom and comfort as it comes too natural by absorbing the words of Jah.

 

No Conversion to Rastafari….!?

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

Book to Test your Self on Rastafari

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

To convert to Rastafari a person needs 3 basic things…

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

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

Rastafari is my first love…but…

Rastafari is my first love but…

king selasse with empress menenThe Rasta community has turned me off. I know shouldnt write for them, but its hard when you belong to a community where there are so many wolves in sheep’s clothing. They look Rasta, but in their heart they are Babylon. They know I am not like them so they try to wear me down with abuses of how I need to try to be more like them. I have a place in Zion, and that I cannot give up.

When I am around people who have no regard for Jah, it makes me cringe the way they speak. About their sexual escapades, their probation officers, their sugar Daddies, their lustful “relationships” their desire to hurt another human being. These things hurt my Rasta heart and make me just want to get away from these people.



Rastafari is my first love….But I am thinking of pursuing something else. In fact I have already started. This doesn’t meant I wont blog Rastafari anymore…it just means…perhaps a little less?

I have another love I want to share with the world

I have always been a person who is spiritual and believes in forces unseen. Jah is my first source for all that I do, and then I also believe in harnessing the power within. So, my other blog is mostly about that.

No matter what I do I keep …

No matter what I do I keep getting pulled to Rastafari. I know I could do a lot more with this blog…but I have my reasons for not expanding on it.

Jamaica is my heart…

jamaican flag, the jamaican flag buyJamaica is my heart and soul. Foreign Babylon is wearing me down. I always think about home, every day and how much I wish I was there. I remember the smiles of my people, the way the air makes me feel, the white sandy beaches, the slow pace, the way party life picks up in Jamaica in the night-time. I will go home.

I think I am just feeling discouraged by those who….

…want to make Rastafari something it is not. I have to say something I have been wanting to mention in my books for a long time. But, I didn’t for fear of reaction from…I dont know whom. I am a messenger of Jah. But, I am not a messenger of Jah for everyone. Some people are gonna really get and understand my message. My books and blog posts will resonate with them. Then for some they may find my work “uninspiring.” That really because, my work was not meant for them. But, how do you tell someone you are writing for a certain set of people, because that is what The Most High Appointed you for? Let me just say, those people know who they are because my message feels right for them. The sad part about it is…my books are being read more by those it wasnt meant for, than those it was.

Rasta to Rasta is no debate



I heard the FAther from the show called Duck Dynasty say something….” I knew I had to get committed to the duck hunting Rasta Couplebusiness full-time, or put down the duck hunting business full-time.” I feel like that about Rastafari sometimes. I feel like I have to commit my self to something. I feel like this website could be so much more if I were willing to give it the effort. There is just so much judgement from people who really don’t know what they are talking about that is why they have the judgement. When I am around Rastafari people like me…Rastafari is the least thing we are interested in dissucssing…becasue we argree…therefor… there is know debate no trying to prove…everythign just flows. Those Rasta are few and far between. I WOULD LIKE TO take this moment to thank those who are Rasta and do support me to the fullest. Thank you Rastafari. I appreciate your support.
