JAH RASTAFARI

MORNING PRAYER

From my new book “Jah Rastafari Prayers” Healing Rasta Prayers and Scriptures”

 

lion of judah scepter book

“Good Morning Jah, in the name of His Imperial Majesty, Holy Emanuel I, King Selassie I.

I and I give thanks for this blessed day. May all the land be touched by your presence beauty and power.

Keep I and I protected from Babylon tricks and adversity.

Give I and I strength to survive another Day in Babylon.

Bless I and I that I may maintain a positive loving caring and sharing spirit as I serve you Jah on this day.

Keep Satan and his workers out of I and I path as I trod the earth today.

In the name of King Selassie I, Holy Emanuel I.

Rastafari.”

 

 

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.

What is a Rasta? (page 3)

bob marley rastaA Rasta is a messenger, Chosen at CONCEPTION, chosen at CONCEPTION to deliver the message of The Most high. Rasta, don’t believe in Jah… Rasta KNOW Jah is real! Every Rasta has a Job for his life, already laid out for him at his birth. Our job as Rasta is not to go to school and become a Doctor or a Lawyer… it is the job of Rasta to deliver “the message” of truth to the black people.

Bob Marley did it, Capleton is doing it, Garnet silk did it, I am doing it. This is what it means to be a Rasta.

Rasta Acronym

  1. RRighteous
  2. AAction
  3. SServing
  4. TThe
  5. AAlmighty

Rastafari is a faith for people who want to follow a spiritual way of life based on Truth. A True Jah, with Real Prophets of Today. Appreciating Nature, and taking action to educate and Lift up all who are oppressed, representing equal Rights for all Peoples.

 

Who should become a Rasta?

 

download images-1 images-2 images

All coily haired and black-skinned, descendants of Africa, men, women, and children, should follow the spiritual way of life of Rastafari.

Here is why…

  • Rastafari is a spiritual way of      life, not a Religion which has become corrupt
  • Rastafari is independence and      creativity of the Black hue-man
  • Rastafari teaches Natural      living, as a way of life
  • Rastafari embraces the natural      beauty of the Black hue-man
  • Rastafari is positive self-image      and self-awareness of the Black hue-man
  • Rastafari is the truth of what      it means to have black African DNA
  • Rastafari promotes strong black      communities by way of Leadership entrepreneurship

Jah Say…

“I send out my messengers (Rasta) to call all my people, wooly haired and black-skinned, made in my image. To remind them of whom they are, and that they may return to the rightful ways as the chosen people. Please hear the call of my messengers, and turn to me, I am the Almighty.”

Self Esteem as Black Hue-man

To have self esteem as a black hue-man you will have to learn your history, and positive contributions of your black Ancestors. Enjoy My little Lamb.

Why Rasta say “King Selassie I (Jah Rastafari)”

Why Rastafari say “King Selassie I (Jah Rastafari)

King Selassie II have been thinking about this for some time. But it was only recently that I asked my self the question and got an answer. I know..its spiritual, just allow me explain. I used to know a guy. Someone I cared about very much. He began embracing the faith around the same time I did, and lived in my area, here in Ontario. We immediately became friends when we ran into each other on the bus, after some time. We had Rastafari in common and many Rasta like to stick together.

I learned very quickly we were embracing the faith in different ways. He would often say King Selassie I. I would say Jah. We had a conversation about this one day. He told me he found it dumb that I would say Jah considering the very name of my faith means KIng Selassie I. I told him there are many Rasta who say Jah, and it is a personal thing and that saying Jah, feels right for me.

I have since made friends with another individual who chooses to embrace the faith in this way, as my former friend. So, I asked my self, why do Rasta say King Selassie I. The reason may be something you did not expect. In fact it is somewhat complicated. When you are reading this keep in mind that we have all been brainwashed about the truth concerning God, so the truth (which I am about to share with you) may sound like lies. But, It is the truth, about the real God. The God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob as stated in the King James Version Bible. The God of the Covenant people, of Israel and Judah.

Ask yourself some questions about spiritual truth

Before I get into Why Rasta say King Selassie I, I want you to ask yourself some questions, just to blackwomanwhitemanexercise you mind in the way of knowing that, brainwashing is taking place, and spiritual truth is out there. But many people don’t know it so the lies concerning God and spirituality (Religion) is what dominates the world.

  1. What Religion was Jesus Christ?
  2. What Religious beliefs did Adam and Eve have?
  3. How did God make black people, and why?
  4. If God is real what does he want from me?
  5. Is there a way of life that can induce things like prosperity, peace, happiness, for all persons?

The birth of King Selassie I

Jah is the Almighty Creator. He is all-knowing and All powerful. In our modern lives of Fast cars, accumulation of material possessions and fake hair and nails, we have forgotten that the creator still exists, and he has not changed since he created Adam and Eve.

Jah appointed King Selassie I by birth to protect the land where he (created) placed the first Man and Woman. This is no joke…Its just truth.

Foreign Invasion and Colonization of Africa



Did you know the original name of Africa was actually Ethiopia. Africa as we call it today was known as Upper Ethiopia and Lower Ethiopia. Due to foreign invasion and colonization bit by bit, Africa was taken over and the names of small areas changed.

Come 1935, during the reign of King Selassie I in Ethiopia, Mussolini with his Modern weaponry , and unscrupulous tactics, set out to invade and take over. King Selassie I, a devout Christian and a proud King of “Ethiopia” wasn’t having any of that.

We can still visit the Garden of Eden….

Could you image visiting Ethiopia in this day and age and pointing to a Condo or a Highway, or a grocery store and saying …and that is where the Garden of Eden used to be. Jah wasnt gonna have any of that either. Remember Jah Jah is Almighty and all-powerful, he has the ability to foresee wickedness, and he also has the ability to appoint someone by birth to defend his endeavours. This is exactly what Jah did to protect the Garden of KIng, by way of the Birth of King Selassie I. We can still go and visit the Garden of Eden. Thank you Jah

The words “Ras – Tafari” what it means

Rastafari men and Rastafari women know that King Selassie I birth and life is the works of Jah the king selasse with empress menenAlmighty creator. This is why we say “Jah Rastafari.” Ras Tafari was the birth or baptism name of Emperor Haile Selassie I.  Ras meaning prince, and his first name Tafari. When we say Rastafari, we are really saying God the Almighty and powerful creator, the God of Israel, who created my spirituality by way of one man, King Selassie I.” See, it’s too long! So we say “Jah Rastafari!” I cannot be bothered to lie to you. It is a fact.

Whats really the point of all this?

The point of all this is that some Rasta say King Selassie I and some do not. Neither is right or wrong. If want to Salut Jah, by saying the word Jah, King Selassie I is automatically included. If you want to say King Selassie I, you automatically include Jah. I say Jah because it feels right for me, but some times I say King Selassie I too. It depends what I am trying to say.

Sometimes I want to emphasize that the works of Jah, the Almighty is so great and so powerful, that to say King Selassie I. Sometimes, I want to say, what a blessing to know the truth of the Almighty, so I say Jah. Its spiritual and personal.

Rastafari is the truth and light for all Nations

Rastafari is the truth. There is nothing else and nothing higher. I am sorry but as a Rasta I know black jesusthat. Anything that exists on earth only because Jah allows it. If he doesn’t want it, he knows how to get rid of it. The only reason people have other spiritual beliefs is because they are brainwashed, and Jah allows them to be brainwashed because he gives every individual free will.

It’s all there in the King James version bible. The relationship between the God of Israel and the covenant people. Even that they too believed in other Gods.

Jah bless to all my beauties. Rastafari is the light.

Jah Love, and Jah guidance.

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

black jesusI was watching one of the videos I placed on my Rasta blog front page.This is my 4th time watching this video, it’s so full of information. I am now on my 4th time really taking in all that this Rasta man is saying. Its everything I feel and know but never had the words for….This blog post is all about the beliefs and Rules of Rastafari.

White Jesus Christ

In Rastafari there is no such thing as a White Jesus Christ. We believe in Jesus Christ but we believe in Jesus Christ the Nazarite who was a dark-skinned man with dreadlocks, who loved God, and was sent by God to inform the people who God is real. It is not about Race (ethnicity) Just truth and reality. Rastafari is always about the hidden truth. The perfect Rasta Man knows the truth about Jesus Christ, and embraces that truth, not Babylon lies.

King Selassie I

King Selassie I is the descendent of King David. Is this fact not worthy of some praise and attention? Of course it is. But the Babylon system does not want you to know about these things. Mainly because then the truth will be revealed that biblical people and Jesus Christ himself, was in fact black. The perfect Rasta man can feel the divinity of King Selassie I as Jah Elect. With or without the Ancestral Lineage.

Dreadlocks

On a Rastafari person, the dreadlocks have a very special meaning. They represent truth, Jah, and natural living. They also represent the awareness that all life began as black and that Jah is a black and very powerful entity that Rasta loves and fears. You cannot call your self Rasta and not have your dreadlocks. It just doesn’t work. Your dreadlocks are your living testimony that you know Jah is real, and that you vow to live to please him all the days of your life. Its sort of like when you marry someone and you  wear a wedding ring. How would you receive a person that told you they were married but just didn’t wear the ring. Nonsensical right. However….

Leonard Howell – Wikipedia.com

‘Leonard Percival Howell was known as The Gongor G.G. Maragh leonard(forGong Guru), was a Jamaican Religious figure. According to his biographer Hélène Lee Howell was born in an Anglican family. He was one of the first preachers of the Rastafari Movement (along with Joseph Hibert, Archibald Dunkley and Robert Hinds), and is sometimes known as The First Rasta.

Born in May Crawle River, Jamaica, Howell left the country as a youth, traveling amongst other places to New York, and returned in 1932. He began preaching in 1933 about what he considered the symbolic portent for the African Diaspora—the crowning of Ras Tafari Makonnen as Emperor Haile Selassie I of Ethiopia. His preaching asserted that Haile Selassie was the “Messiah returned to earth,” and he published a book called The Promise Key.  Although this resulted in him being arrested, tried for sedition and imprisoned for two years, the Rastafari movement grew.

Over the following years, Howell came into conflict with all the establishment authorities in Jamaica: the planters, the trade unions, established churches, police and colonial authorities, and he was allegedly arrested more than 50 times. He formed a town or commune called Pinnacle in Saint Catherine Parish that became famous as a place for Rastafarians. Nevertheless, this movement prospered, and today the Rastafari faith exists worldwide. Unlike many Rastas Howell never wore dreadlocks. Leonard Howell died in Kingston Jamaica.’

Mr. Howell is known for writing the book, “The Promise Key” but I could only find a book called, “The Promised Key.”

The Work of a Rasta man

A Rasta man or Rasta woman is someone who is supposed to represent his or her people. This is the whole reason they are chosen as Rasta. In being chosen for this very special job, we are also aware that we must keep our mind, heart and soul clean (uncorrupted) to enter Zion. Many Rasta now a day are not taking this seriously, but I do. I am still representing and very much in love with my people. the perfect Rasta man feels compelled to deliver the message of Jah the Almighty, this is his natural-born purpose.

What are some beliefs of the Rastafari People?

Rastas have 10 basic principles. I list them all in my new book entitled white Rastafari. But the basic principles are…

  • Rasta does not eat meat
  • Rasta does not cut the dreadlocks
  • Rasta knows Jah is black

These are 3 principles of every Rastafari man woman and child. If anybody says they eat meat and they are Rasta, I would say they do not have the heart of Rastafari. The perfect Rasta man knows to eat meat, is to eat dead flesh.

Deep love for Black People

From I was just a little girl, I understood that Rasta loved the black Identity. Iblack couple knew that the colours Red Yellow and Green represented Africa, and I also understood somehow that dreadlocks were a way of wearing black African hair in its natural state. But I was just a kid so I wasn’t completely aware, but these were the feelings I had as a little girl about 2 and 3 years old.

Every Rasta has an appreciation for the black Identity. The beauty of black skin, the truth of black natural hair, and a love of black Culture. The perfect Rasta man no matter where he is from, has a deep love for the black African Identity.

Rastafari Livity

The perfect Rastaman enjoys living his life as Rastafari. This means listening to the beautiful sounds of Rasta Reggae music, eating Rasta Ital Food, Using natural products to clean his home and cleanse his body, and give thanks and praises unto the creator – Jah every day. To live as Rastafari, means to live life the way Jah intended them to live. Rastafari is a spirituality that embraces natural living, this is what the Rastafari livity is all about.

Cleanliness and Purity

One thing I have yet to meet is a Rasta man who is not clean. I know some people think that because Rasta wear the hair in dreadlocks, we must not be clean, but actually the opposite is true. Rasta has a “Crown” upon our heads. We make cleanliness and purity a priority, as a way of showing off our crown.
The Rastafari dreadlocks crown represents…

  • Royalty
  • Love
  • Divinity
  • Life
  • Freedom
  • King Selassie I
  • Jah

Rasta is some of the cleanest people on the planet, because we where a Jah crown on our heads, we keep our surroundings clean, to show our love and respect, to Jah.


 

My great black Ancestors, I salute you as Rasta.

 

Equal Rights and Justice for all

Equal Rights and Justice for All. It should be no surprise that equal Rights and justice for all is one of the principles of the Rastafari Livity. Rastafari is ancestral. An aspect of this faith that often is not mentioned, but lives strongly in every Rasta man woman and child. My ancestors were brutalized, hanged, black women beated and raped, black men  were forced to ejaculate in order to reproduce more black slaves. These things hurt my heart. However, they are with me….It is no wonder they have very little positive things to report to me. They want to me to share with others what it was like to live in such a time. The time they were stolen and removed from their homeland, Africa, and forced to live a life of subservience. As Rasta the component of my Ancestors is 2 fold. I must Salut my Ancestors as being from the same realm as Jah the Almighty, and I must Salut them as paving the way for my freedom today. I love my Ancestors and they love me. They want me to know things, better yet they want me to understand things…and believe me now I do. I have more respect for my great black Ancestors than I ever have. Now that they have put me in situations so that I could see, hear and experience some of the same things they did, while under a slave master.

No I cannot just forget…

No I cannot just forget what happened to my great black ancestors for a number of reasons

  • to do so would be disrespect, I would not want my descendents to disregard my trials and tribulations in that manner
  • My faith does not give me a choice. They are with me, they influence my experiences, my thoughts, my actions etc
  • They help me to be a better writer because they give me a perspective unknown to me before.
  • Jah Jah, calls for me to make remembrance of them.

How I salute my black ancestors

I salute my ancestors by lighting an incent in their honour every time I keep the sabbath. I love them. I know they went through a lot of hatred, conspiring, and that they were killed BECAUSE of their natty hair and dark skin complexion and that they had not the resources to defend themselves. 

Then came the black leaders/heroes

then came our leaders and heroes, such as Malcolm X, Martin Luther King, Marcus Garvey, Emperor Haile Selassie, and many others.  They risked and GAVE of their lives in order to fight for equal rights and justice for generations of black people to come. HEY THAT’S ME!! how can I dismiss my ancestors and live as if there was no such thing as the black struggle. As a natty haired dark-skinned black woman today, I see the same prejudice and discrimination that my people faced. It’s a hard thing. But one thing for sure, when I am around my people, I feel so much love in my heart. The black struggle made us unique and strong, and gave us help from the other side. I am a proud black woman. Jah Rastafari.

Today, black children coming up have no idea of the black struggle. But I will teach it to them. They need to know the truth, they need to know of their history, they need to be proud and salute their ancestors.

 

The Song Buffalo Soldier, Bob Marley

I invite you to read the words of this Bob Marley song. When I took the time to really listened to it the other day, it made me cry to realize just howrastafari love and marriage black people, my people must have been feeling at that time.

Buffalo Soldier lyrics

Buffalo soldier, dreadlock rasta
There was a buffalo soldier in the heart of America
Stolen from Africa, brought to America
Fighting on arrival, fighting for survival

I mean it when I analyze the stench
To me it makes a lot of sense
How the dreadlock rasta was the buffalo soldier
And he was taken from Africa, brought to America
Fighting on arrival, fighting for survival

Said he was a buffalo soldier, dreadlock rasta
Buffalo soldier in the heart of America

If you know your history
Then you would know where you’re coming from
Then you wouldn’t have to ask me
Who the ‘eck do I think I am

I’m just a buffalo soldier in the heart of America
Stolen from Africa, brought to America
Said he was fighting on arrival, fighting for survival
Said he was a buffalo soldier, win the war for America

Dreadie, woy yoy yoy, woy yoy-yoy yoy
[ From: http://www.elyrics.net/read/b/bob-marley-lyrics/buffalo-soldier-lyrics.html ]
Woy yoy yoy yoy, yoy yoy-yoy yoy
Woy yoy yoy, woy yoy-yoy yoy
Woy yoy yoy yoy, yoy yoy-yoy yoy
Buffalo soldier troddin’ through the land, wo-ho-ooh
Said he wanna ran and then you wanna hand
Troddin’ through the land, yea-hea, yea-ea

Said he was a buffalo soldier, win the war for America
Buffalo soldier, dreadlock rasta
Fighting on arrival, fighting for survival
Driven from the mainland to the heart of the Caribbean

Singing, woy yoy yoy, woy yoy-yoy yoy
Woy yoy yoy yoy, yoy yoy-yoy yoy
Woy yoy yoy, woy yoy-yoy yoy
Woy yoy yoy yoy, yoy yoy-yoy yoy

Troddin’ through San Juan in the arms of America
Troddin’ through Jamaica, a buffalo soldier
Fighting on arrival, fighting for survival
Buffalo soldier, dreadlock rasta

Woy yoy yoy, woy yoy-yoy yoy
Woy yoy yoy yoy, yoy yoy-yoy yoy
Woy yoy yoy, woy yoy-yoy yoy
Woy yoy yoy yoy, yoy yoy-yoy yoy

don’t ever say to a black person…”are’nt we all the same?” or “Isnt it just a skin color?” Because the answer is “no” and “no”

Jah bless you all, Ras-Tarfari
