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.

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.

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.

10 things you should know about Rastafari

  1. jah rasta prayersKing Selassie I Lives on – Rasta think of “the King” as living amongst us in spirit, and in all things.

  4. Rasta do not consume pharmaceuticals – Rastafari believe that pharmaceuticles are designed to encourage the body to make a person more sick so they can take more pharmaceuticles. Babylon and their tricks!

  8. Prophets of Jah – Many Rasta are prophets of Jah, Just like Moses, Noah,  in the King James Version Bible. Here to deliver a message of love peace unity and Jah Living.

how rastafarians lock their hair

dreadlocks cleanWelcome. I thought I would share with you how Rastafari their dreadlocks Rasta hair.

As a Rasta the correct way to do it is minus a comb and minus scissors. So there should be no cutting or parting out of hair by the scalp using a comb. Dreadlocks are technically supposed to be “formed by Jah!” It is the one part of our physical self that we “dedicate” to him to do what he wishes. This is why it becomes matted, which form dreadlocks.

Before I talk about how I created my own dreadlocks. I want to share with a page that shows how a girl in a video is getting her hair done in dreadlocks very professionally and very neatly. She has straight hair so it’s a little different from mine, but her locks look nice. Check it out Dreadlocks Video.

Starting my dreadlocks

When I started my dreadlocks…I knew for years I was going to do it. But I was scared. Scared that men would not be attracted to me…Scared that I would look ugly in my own “natural Hair” scared that my locks would be too “Rastafari” for my job….I was scared of so many things. At the time I started my locks I had braids in my hair. In all my fear…I pull out one braid at the back underneath all my “synthetic braids.” And “allowed” that one bit of hair to lock. I promised my self I would check on it in 2 weeks time. Well two weeks later I did check on it. It looked ok, but it didn’t look great. I figured “well, this is what I want….” So I decided to do my whole head. The day I started my dreadlocks I dedicated my life to Jah. I pulled out all the braids on my head. I did not use a comb in it…I did not cut any ends…I even had some hair glue in my hair from wearing weave…I left it. I wanted the shift to just start immediately and I wanted it to be Authentic.


My Locks and Becoming a Rasta

I shifted my priorities and I knew I would have to wear a head wrap. My locks were short, and ” natural” and to me…”unattractive.” Well, I wore a hair wrap and felt “free” but “ugly.” I began Transition wearing wigs. The day came when the wig could not fit over my dreadlocks any more. I had no choice but to let some air get to my hair.  I stood out like a sore thumb everywhere I went. But somehow I felt free… I washed my own hair in the shower, which I enjoyed doing, I felt beautiful from head to toe in “my own” hair! I felt like I had stepped into me.

That was 5 years ago. Today my dreadlocks are long, they look beautiful. I am wearing my own natural hair, some men find me irresistible…some are shocked, to see a black woman with long natural hair. Two things I didn’t expect having dreadlocks…How Free I feel, and how many men who are not black Approach me in conversation. I feel great knowing that like most women outside…I am wearing my own hair, and it is long, and beautiful.

Products I used to Lock my hair!

Rasta_Way_of_Life_Cover_for_KindleI used a lot of lime juice to force my hair to lock. I had to do that because My ends were full of Lye from perm I had used for almost 20 years. My hair could not lock using my natural coils. The lime Juice worked pretty good for my hair. I avoided washing my hair for 5 weeks to allow the locks to form. I did feel icky. When I finally washed my hair some of my Locks unraveled, But I just twisted them again and reapplied the lime juice. In Jamaica many Rasta use a mixture of real lime juice and aloe. I talk about this in my new book “Rasta Way of Life” Rastafari Livity Book. The Lime helps the hair to lock fast under the son. The Aloe kind of acts as a sticky sealer to seal in the loose hairs. I hope this was helpful.

Blessed.

Blessings of Wisdom

18 My child, from your youth choose discipline,

   and when you have gray hair you will still find wisdom.

19 Come to her like one who plows and sows,

   and wait for her good harvest.

For when you cultivate her you will toil but little,

   and soon you will eat of her produce.

20 She seems very harsh to the undisciplined;

   fools cannot remain with her.

21 She will be like a heavy stone to test them,

   and they will not delay in casting her aside.

22 For wisdom is like her name;

   she is not readily perceived by many.

23 Listen, my child, and accept my judgment;

   do not reject my counsel.

24 Put your feet into her fetters,

   and your neck into her collar.

25 Bend your shoulders and carry her,

   and do not fret under her bonds.

26 Come to her with all your soul,

   and keep her ways with all your might.

27 Search out and seek, and she will become known to you;

   and when you get hold of her, do not let her go.

28 For at last you will find the rest she gives,

   and she will be changed into joy for you.

29 Then her fetters will become for you a strong defense,

   and her collar a glorious robe.

30 Her yoke[c] is a golden ornament,

   and her bonds a purple cord.

31 You will wear her like a glorious robe,

   and put her on like a splendid crown.[d]

32 If you are willing, my child, you can be disciplined,

   and if you apply yourself you will become clever.

33 If you love to listen you will gain knowledge,

   and if you pay attention you will become wise.

34 Stand in the company of the elders.

   Who is wise? Attach yourself to such a one.

35 Be ready to listen to every godly discourse,

   and let no wise proverbs escape you.

36 If you see an intelligent person, rise early to visit him;

   let your foot wear out his doorstep.

37 Reflect on the statutes of the Lord,

   and meditate at all times on his commandments.

What is Rastafari?

Rastafari is a daily celebration of African Roots and Culture. The purpose of Rastafari is to guide one to live clean and pure that a person may be deemed “fit” (by Jah) to Enter Holy Mount Zion.

 

What is a Rasta?

A Rasta is someone who adheres to the Rastafari Livity (way of life). Rasta are “called” to carry “the light” of Jah Rastafari, and to deliver “the message” of this  way of life to others. By this we can see that to embrace the Rastafari way of life  is a responsibility and commitment of the heart.

Beliefs of Rasta about God?

 

Rasta know that God is Jah. that Jah is an “African” Spirit. That he is very loving, forgiving and very powerful. Rasta “know”that Jah created heaven and earth, the first man and woman, Adam and Eve, and he parted the Red Sea for the Israelites. “Jah” is the God of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob spoken about in the scriptures of the Christian Bible. Jah “Raised up” King Selassie I as his Elect, to protect the Garden of Eden.

 

What is The Rastafari Livity?

The Rastafari Livity is a Celebration of African Roots and Culture that honors Jah. Rasta live life daily in all things they do to honor and show love for Jah, Jah Elect and Jah Creations. From the food that is cooked (Ital) clean and natural, to the way we wear our hair (in dreadlocks)fuss and vanity free, to the colors that we wear (Red Yellow and Green).  Rasta Livity is a commitment of love and honour to and for Jah, the Almighty Creator of all living things all the days of our life.

 

The Spiritual Duty of Rasta

472d67be890623d093bc2ea5faf2fa72.jpg

To love

As Rasta it is our Job to show love. Rasta do not reject love in any form. If someone asks us to do them a favor, we do it…to show even more love. If someone wants to give a Rasta a hug we  do not refuse it. Some more ways Rasta show love is by being there for our friends and families, and Spending time in and surrounded by nature, to show Jah, the creator we love and appreciate the land he has given us. As Rasta showing love is one of the ways  how we honour Jah.

To Live Free

To live Free as Rasta is very important. Rasta believe life should have no restrictions. As long as a person is not “hurting life” or “taking life”, one should

live as one chooses. “Freedom” in life is the  basis for being one with Jah. Freedom to love and honour  Jah, Freedom to Roam, freedom to spend our spiritual time as we choose… Just how Jah, the creator, intended!

 To Be a Servant of Jah

jesushand0.jpg

To fulfill the duty of Rasta as Jah servant is very simple.Iit means helping and loving other people. As Rasta we see ourselves as “extensions” of Jah helping hand, heres on earth. Rasta allows Jah to “use us” as his instruments, to provide help, hope assistance whenever the opportunity presents itself. Rasta always say “yes” to opening the door for others, to carrying a grocery bag, to lending money to those who ask. It is the duty of Rasta to Serve Jah by serving his creations (others)

 

To Enter Holy Mount Zion

The Purpose of the Rastafari Livity is to provide a guide for those who desire to enter Zion (heaven). Zion is where Jah, the Most High roams. There is only love, peace, light, freedom, wholeness, and Jah “light” in Zion. Only those with clean loving, Hearts can enter Zion. It is our Duty as Rasta, to follow Rastafari way of life, as our Guide.. so that our soul may enter Holy Mount Zion.

That was the first portion of the book. I was too excited. I had to share some of it with you. It is not available for purchase just yet. At this rate it will be finished in 1 to 2 weeks.

Blessed Love to all.

May Jah Guide you and protect you on this life Journey.

Here is an excerpt from my new book Jah Rastafari Beliefs and Way of life

WHY ARE YOU A RASTA?

This section is for those new to Rastafari who may be concerned about what to say when asked “Why are you a Rasta?” Here is a suggestion on how to respond. It has two parts.

 

Why are you a Rasta?

Response:

“I know that King Selassie I is the King of all Kings talked about in Revelation 5:5”

The King James Version bible says…

“…weep not: behold, the lion of the tribe of

Judah, the root of David, hath prevailed to open thebook, and loose the seven seals…”

 

Why are you a Rasta?

Response:

King Selassie I crowing title is…“King of Kings, Lord of Lords, Conquering Lion of the Tribe of Judah, Elect of God.”

See how it matches up perfectly? Wikipedia it!

 

 

 

4 PILLARS OF RASTAFARI HEALTH

 

In Rastafari culture, good health is an all encompassing endeavor. We believe that good health is a result of…

  1. Healthy choices for the temple
  2. A calm spirit and calm mind
  3. Healthy relationships with others
  4. A close personal relationship with the Jah

 

RASTAFARI HEALTH PILLAR

Healthy choices for the temple

Rasta do not ingest pharmaceuticals (into the temple)

As Rasta we do everything natural as much as we possibly can. The reason is that we feel that Jah made man, and when he made man he gave them natural roots and herbs for their ailments. Jah did not create pharmaceuticals. Rasta takes herbs, roots and vitamins for most health issues. Many of us have natural health and healing books readily available in our homes. Rasta knows that Babylon created pharmaceuticals to keep making people take them (keep making people sick) so that they become dependent and Babylon makes more money. As Rasta you may purchase your own health and healing book online or your local book store.

I strongly recommend having a book in your home on natural medicine to help guide you into natural medicine and healing awareness.

Good health of the body is for the short and longer term as a Rasta.

Fasting for spiritual Health as Rastafari

Many people do not consider the spirit to be part of the health of the body. I can ensure the spirit is an integral a part of our physical and emotional well being and should be maintained and properly “fed.”

2 Reasons Rastafari fast…

Rasta fast to exercise the spirit so to speak, in the way that we halt a time when we eat so that our mind can experience our existence as the spirit instead of as a physical being driven by physical desires. Doing this as a Rasta helps one to practice self control and to develop spiritual health and awareness.

The other reason is to provide the body s some hours break form digesting food. Everything needs to take a break. It’s just healthy and wise to do so.

Many Rasta fast from Friday at sundown to Saturday at Sundown. Some Rasta fast on Tuesdays, to honor the Ethiopian day of Sabbath. As long as you fast one of these days, then you are covered as a Rasta, for exercising spiritual health and well being.

 

Rasta Temple cleanse

In the Rastafari Livity we are aware of all of the additives and preservatives that may be in our food, also we know that the human body does a good job of food expulsion. However because we as Rasta practice natural health care, we read and learn that the bowels could use some extra help in ridding itself of “gunk.” Rasta like to do a herbal cleanse once a month, for optimal health, and to promote healthy digestion.

I really enjoyed the book. There are some spelling and grammatical errors here and there, but overall, I learned a lot more about the Rastafari lifestyle than I thought possible. I felt a “good vibe” from the book. Check this one out if you are curious about what the term Rastafari means to a practitioner.

Jah Jah was not sleeping during Slavery

Jah Jah is always watching

Every born Rasta knows, Jah Jah is always watching. Jah Jah is a black African, except he is in his spirit form, but he is still a black African. Just like when I become a spirit, I will still have been a Black African, therefore my likes my beliefs, my personality my hair texture will all be that of a Black African. Jah, Jah was not sleeping during slavery, in fact, he was connected to his people more than ever. I believe slavery only happened because black african people (my people) allowed them selves to be enslaved.


He created Rasta and Emperor Haile Selassie I the first

Jah works in ways most people are unaware of. For those of you out there visiting this sight for the first time. When I say Jah, I do mean God. There is only one. Rasta is here to share the word, the truth about Jah and black people. Jah created the birth of Emperor Haile Selassie I to inspire and awaken the black people. To share with the world, the truth of Jah. Emperor Haile Selassie is a life example of what Jah can do, Rasta are the enforcers, of the power of Jah and the life and message of Emperor Haile Selassie I.

im offended every fucking day of my life.

Please don’t come here and tell me you are offended,  cause I don’t care. I am offended every fucking day of my life. And don’t tell me what to believe or what to say regarding my spirituality. This is my website, this is my spirituality, and I am the one living this life. Please don’t tell me how to say what I am saying.

Jah loves his people so….

Rastafari is spirit that anybody can have inside. He sent Rasta here with a message. Yes Rasta can be any color, however Rasta are predominantly black. This is for a number of reasons I will not get into right now.

Jah is a complete and whole entity

    • Jah is a Black African
    • Jah has tightly coiled hair
    • Jah is a complete and whole entity

Black African people are the expression of the complete and whole hue-man.

    Black people are dark-skinned, with tight very tightly coiled hair. When you are creating something you need the ingredient to be in its purest, and strongest, most natural form, so that it can remain, and flavor, and color whatever it is that you are creating. If you use something weak, then your creation will be weak, and how can you make more of something with something that is incomplete. Black people have the juice, the Melanin, to reproduce, the hue- to make the hue man.

Slavery made Black people stronger

Slavery just made black people stronger and more resilient. Maybe even physically stronger too. We put all our faith in God, and came out a very God-fearing people, who could perform magic such as voodoo, and hoodoo, and other forms of magic, we needed this to defeat the white slave masters. Now our people have special “skills.”  Slavery in its own way is our (black people) own little gift.

 My new book on Black people

I am writing a book called “love your blackness” In there I get more in detail about the things written in this blog post. No where on this blog did I ever say that I was blogging for people to like me, or to make one group feel more secure with black people. If you feel insecure reading the truth, or learning or know the wrongs of your people, trying to silence me isn’t gonna do anything. The truth will follow you wherever you go. Most of the books I will write in the future will be for black people. That is who I was sent to deliver the message to. End of story. Telling me off is only gonna waste my time and yours and I am not going to stop making the effort to reprogram the minds of my people.

For all those who appreciate truth. Love and Blessing. Jah Jah is not sleeping.

sorry I traveled to Jamaica…but im back!



I am so sorry to everyone that wondered WHAT THE HECK, happened to this website? I was away, I traveled to Jamaica in February. I was told on very short notice that I had this ticked (one day actually) and so I did not get a chance to wrap all my projects the way that I would have liked to. Oh my goodness, imagine one day to prepare for something you have been wishing for for 3 years. Here is a list of some things I had to do before I actually went to Jamaica.

  • go to the bank
  • call the company running my website and make a payment
  • call the company hosting my website and make a payment
  • go shopping for summer clothes and shoes
  • clean the house
  • buy some gift for my family memebers
  • do my laundry
  • pack for the trip
  • buy a new suitcase
  • …and so much more. Out of that whole list, I think, I only went to the bank, did my laundry, and packed for the trip u sing a very old suitcase, and oh yeah I cleaned the house too.  Clearly I did not have enough time to call the company running my websit and make a payment.  (I will post some pics and video soon) or visit my youtube channel

New book out! How to date a Jamaican man

So I should probably tell you about my new e-book, its called “how to date a jamaican man” it was inspired by my trip to Jamaica, and a fantastic friend/lover I met when I was down their.

I figured…” why not do a book?” I thoguht that way I could include a lot more detail on Jamaican culture and the Jamaican mans way of thinking and of course his upbringing.

I have been doing a lot of black writing lately

I have been doing a lot of black writing lately. what does that mean? It means I seem to be drawn to write books that are about my people,  mainly to help to open our eyes. I did enjoy writing how to date a jamaican man, however i feel my purpose is something “higher” than this. I am enjoying my roots and and culture and my spirituality.

The Almighty gives me my direction…

I asked The Almighty about what I am soppose to be doing, (i am feeling weird in this moment) and what he told me shocked me, to think I have been given such responsibility. I mean I am happy, but I am terrified. The only way I can explain it is. This must be the way Obama felt when he realized he was actually going to be the one running the country. I mean it is certainly something I want to do, but the thought of actually doing it over whelms me. By the way, if there is anything in particular you would like to see on this website, anything in particular you would like me to write about you can always leave it in the comments. Back to what I was saying. I think since “he sees and knows all things” I will go ahead with what he has asked me to do.  I am scared shitless!

Rastafari book still to come

I have a book on Just Rastafari. It is very extensive, this is the main reason it is taking me so long to write it, plus the unexpected trip to Jamaica. But I am working on it and I am enjoying reading. I really do hope people like it. It is still coming please be patient with me.

Spirituality and more, Jamaican Website

I have a new website, but there is nothing there right now. Its called Jamaicanspiritualist.com. You will have to visit to find out what it is all about. i really do like sharing my spiritiuality and other things with you guys. Lifes good especially, when you be your self. Dont forget to read “how to become a rasta” now available as an e-book on amazon, as an instant download to your computer or kindle. In how to become a rasta you will learn…

The black King of Ethiopias’ (Emperor Haile Selassie) appeal to the leage of Nations.

Well there is a lot I am doing right now. I will be offering Tarot card readings on my new website, for anybody who is interested. e-mail me any time at info@jamaicanspiritualist.com

More about my trip in a different post

I will write some more about my trip to Jamaica in a different blog post. I love Jah, and I love Jamaica. I have a lot to tell you. Mostly about how I felt as a Rastafari woman living in North America her whole life and finally going to the place that I have always known is my home. Until next time. Keep loving. Live as black African, this truth belongs to all of us.

Jah bless me, and Jah bless the whole world.

Rastafari lives.

Rastafari Necklace: Big and Beaded, Red Yellow Green Black!

Hi guys. I recently got into beading my own rasta jewelry. I Started doing it for fun, but now I do it cause I find it so relaxing. I have made a big “Bongo necklace” lately that I just adore. Here are some photos of me wearing it.

Each black bead is 30mm long and 8mm in diameter. The whole necklace is about 1 foot and a half long. I brought 1 of these necklaces to my friends store…the necklace didn’t last 4 minutes in the store….the customer that came in behind me bought it right way. Wow.  Here is a picture of this Jah necklace against a black background.

This necklace has Rasta Colors in it. Red yellow and green and black beads. The black represents the black people of Africa, the red represents the love of the Rasta people and the blood shed of slavery. The green represents, the Rich Agriculture of the African land and Global Unity, The yellow represents the hot sunshine that makes the African land so hot and fertile, and also hope for love and peace for all people. I like to call this necklace my “Rastafari love necklace.”

The beads are big but the necklace is not heavy. Sometimes I forget I am wearing it. This necklace is very much an Ethnic, Tribal type necklace in look, but because of the color meanings it is Rastafari and Caribbean too.

Thanks for checking it out. Jah Bless.

dreadlocks postMany white persons are becoming Rastafarians. This is a very positive move for society as a whole. Rastafari is a spirituality of love, togetherness, and God, (Jah Love) and truth. However for those seeking guidance on becoming a Rasta, there may be more to this way of life than you are aware of. To touch the tip of the iceberg, Rastafari is just as much about what you don’t do as much as what you do, to call your self “Rasta”

Rastaman follow a strict code of clean and unclean

white rasta

Many people don’t know this but Rastaman follow a strict code of “clean and unclean” – if he / she is serious about his faith and his beliefs. Many Jamaican Rastas do not

  • smoke cigarettes
  • drink alcohol
  • eat read meat
  • take pharmaceuticals

In Rastafari we try to keep things as pure and as clean as the day Jah created light out of darkness. This way we keep Jah as the center of all that we do.

Can a White Person be a Rasta?

jason-momoa-dreadlocks2

So, can a white person be Rasta? For a few years I felt the clear answer to this question was “of course not!” However I have come to find out… Absolutely! A white person can be a Rasta in the same way that a black man or woman can be Rasta. Rastafari is of the heart, whats in heart, has very little to do with skin color. Rastafari is a powerful spiritual energy, he can do things that humans can’t.  Including penetrate the heart of those blue, pink purple and white. I decided this after watching the video of “Mr. Alborosie” (A white ( Italian) Rasta Reggae music Singer) called “Jah Jah Crown.” His words are the exact way I would describe my very deep and personal relationship with Jah. After listening to a few of Alborosies songs, and watching some of his videos on youtube….I am convinced!….A white person, can be Rastafari!

How do you become a Rastafarian

becoming rasta, white rastafariansNot all Rasta are born Rasta. Some Rasta are Rasta because they are born to Rastafari parents, some are Rasta because they choose this way of living as their person spirituality. Many are Rasta because they have somebody close to them following the livity, and it somehow seems like the right thing for them to do the same thing.

  • You can become a Rasta by following the Rastafari Livity
  • You can become a Rasta by locking your hair and declaring your self as Rasta
  • You can become a Rasta by spiritual Inheritance
  • You can become a Rasta by absorbing as much Rastafari information as possible

You will know the right way for you once you come upon it…Once again Rastafari is of the heart, so nobody can tell you the right or the wrong way for you. Only you can decide that.

learn how to be a Rastafarian!

dreadlocks smellThe first thing you need to know to be a Rastafarian, is… Rastafari is of the heart, so, do you feel that following this way of life is right for you whole heartedly? If yes then go for it…but if not…dont do it…cause in Rastafari your dreadlocks once implemented, are for life.

In my book I talk about…

  • how to be a Rasta
  • how to dress like a true rasta woman
  • how to submit to your Rasta king
  • how to raise your child as Rastafari
  • and much much more…

Understand what it means to be a Rasta

In my book I have included a Rastafari pledge: To be a conscious and Righteous Rasta. Why? Because too many people “become Rasta” as a form of rebellion or because their friend, boyfriend or girlfriend is Rasta, without really understanding what it means to be a rasta. To help people understand what it means I created a very simple but informative pledge, which can be read at any time and keep new Rastas on the right track. I love you all….

for now keep reading those bible verses, stay conscious and righteous and absorb as much “Rasta Reggae Music” as possible. The book is available as an ebook,  Jah Bless.

Jah Rastafari, Much Love.

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

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

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

To be a Rasta is a huge Responsibility

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

Jah is my inner compass, Jamaica is my home

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

Everything I do is Rastafari, roots and culture

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

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

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

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

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

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


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

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

Moving to Jamaica is the reward!

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

Rastafarian God: Emperor Haile Selassie of Ethiopia

Do Rastafarians have their own God?

 

rasta book

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

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

Do Rastafarians believe in Jesus Christ?

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

Rasta Colors and the Ethiopian (Rasta) Flag

rasta flag

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

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

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

The proof is in the pudding!

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

For some Rasta God has no Face and no Name

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

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

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

Is God Black?

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


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

Bob Marley said “We are all One”

rasta marley bob

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

P.S.

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

Why do Rastafarians Cover Thier Hair (Dreadlocks)?

Why Rasta say “King Selassie I (Jah Rastafari)” – How to Be a True Rastafari  – 7 Reasons Why People Become Rastafari?  – How to Tell if someone is Rastafari –  5 Rastafari views and Principles on Money –  How to cook Ital Rasta food: 6 Rules

Female Rasta and What the bible says about Covering the hair

 

lock your hairI cover my hair because as a female Rasta, I feel more beautiful with my hair covered. I also like the fact that I am embracing my African heritage when I where a hair wrap, to cover my hair. Lately I have been showing my dreadlocks and that makes me feel pretty too! The bible says “a woman should not prophesy or pray without her head covered, other wise she disrespects her head.” I cover my hair every night before going to sleep. I do prophesy, but only with my family and my hair is never “open” around them. lol.

Rastas Cover their dreadlocks to Keep the hair Clean

 

rastafarian hat2Rastafarians cover their hair to keep their hair clean. There are many pollutants in the air…hair does get quite dirty being exposed. Rastas also cover the hair to keep the locks free of “lint.” When you have dreadlocks you must take care to prevent unwanted particles from becoming lodged in the dreadlock. This is the biggest reason we Rasta cover our hair.

Our Dreadlocks are spiritual and “Holy”

For us Rasta, our hair, (our dreadlocks) are spiritual and holy. We show spiritual respect for our hair by keeping it covered. There are many interactions we have in our day-to-day life. For a Ras, there are some things we would just not rather our hair be in contact with. Also others may not have as much respect for our hair as we do. To avoid conflict, we keep our hair covered.

Rastafari spirituality is about keeping things “pure and clean”

 

Rastafari is all about keeping many things pure and clean, which I talk more about in my Rastafari book. We keep just about rasta cover haireverything pure and clean. I am talking about Jamaican rasta here. That is the only type of Rastafari I know about. Keeping the hair clean is in the same bracket as not smoking cigarettes, and not drinking alcohol, and not eating meat, according to Rastafari beliefs and values.

Our hair gets very long and covering it makes it more manageable

 

Rasta dreadlocks get very long. We cover our hair to keep the hair neatly maintained and from preventing coming into contact with things “unclean.”

Do Rasta children have to cover their hair too?

Typically rasta children do not cover their hair. but if they want to, they can.

Our hair is very personal, therefore we cover it to keep it personal

 

Something is personal and spiritual when you keep it to your self. Our Spirituality is about our connection to “the Most High”. In Rastafari our hair is a very special part of that connection. We keep our hair covered to honor the most high, and to increase spiritual awareness.

Contemplation and meditation while awake

Meditation is something that is personal and usually done alone in quiet areas. Keeping our hair covered is a constant meditation, or spiritual “connectedness” for some Ras. By reserving a piece of who we are, we feel spiritual and meditative.

What is the meaning behind Rastas dreadlocks?

Rastas wear their hair in dreadlocks to honor the creator. We wear the locks to show our commitment to the most high and as ahow to tell if someone is Rasta symbol of our spiritual self. Locks have a much deeper meaning than what is written here. But I can’t really find the words to express it because it rests so deep inside me. But the above explanation should do.

How often to Rasta wash their dreads?

Rastas Wash their hair just like every body else. I wash mine once a week to 2 times a week. Some times I wash my hair every two weeks. Just because we have dreads it doesn’t mean we “don’t wash our hair”, or “can’t wash our hair”. In fact many Jamaican Rastafarians like to keep their hair exceptionally clean. Once again this is one of our spiritual values and beliefs.

How long does rasta hair take to dread?

Rasta Dreadlocks can take anywhere from 4-8 weeks to dread. Most of this depends on if the hair is covered on a daily basis,what types of Shampoo is being used, and whether or not the hair is being covered at night when the person is sleeping, and also, the individual hair texture.

Do Dreadlocks and Marijuana go hand in hand in Rastafari ?

 

No you don’t have to smoke Marijuana just because you have locks, or just because you are Rasta. Rasta smoke marijuana in the same fashion that some smoke cigarettes-for stress relief, or for relaxation. Dreadlocks and marijuana do not go hand in hand in Rastafari.

Can I be a Rasta too?

becoming rasta, white rastafariansAnybody can follow the way of life that Rastafarians do. Rastas do not smoke cigarettes, we do not drink alcohol, and we are vegetarian. If you do these things, and believe in equal rights and justice for all regardless of class, income, or education level, then you are Rasta. Read more here on how to become Rastafari.

Rasta beliefs on love/dating/marriage….Just a sneak peak

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

rasta love and marriageMany “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?

rastafari love and marriageRasta 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!
