THE CHOICE OF RASTAFARI

Rastafari has specially selected every Rasta, however that Rasta must also choose Rastafari to reap the rewards. It is a two way spiritual street. A Rasta man can be “powerful” or “weak” depending upon how deep he chooses to live and embrace the faith.

Every Rasta knows within themselves if their life is a Reflection of their spiritual beliefs that puts the will and the works of Jah first. When this happens the Rasta woman or Rasta man will be powerful, peaceful, confident and content.

Rastafari is a spiritual gift, if you want to see its power working in your life, you will have to work Rastafari in your life.

May you meet Jah on your Journey, May you know his might and his blessings. Rastafari, King Selassie I.

 

 

IMPORTANCE OF KING SELASSIE I AND EMPRESS MENEN IN RASTAFARI

 

 

As an aspiring Rasta, You may be wondering about the importance and meaning of King Selassie I and Empress Menen in the Rastafari faith. What role do they play? Why are they so important?  The following is 5  reasons…

IMPORTANCE OF KING SELASSIE I AND EMPRESS MENEN IN RASTAFARI

#1 Royalty and Self Respect

The life and crowning of King Selassie I and Empress Menen in Rastafari, is to demonstrate Royalty, Self Respect

By the example set by the crowning and Relationship of King Selassie I and Empress Menen, Rasta maintain a high standard for ourselves in all things. From the clothing that we choose to wear, to the way we speak, the friendships we keep, and the way we choose to live and view our lives.  Rasta emulates the life and standards of King Alpha and Queen Omega at all times.

How to Emulate “the King & Queen” as Rasta

King Selassie I is the Role Model for the Rasta man, and Empress Menen is the Role Model for the Rasta woman. Some of the ways we as Rasta Emulate the King and Queen are…

Maintaining cordial relationships with others including those who we may consider “difficult to deal with” or whom we may consider to be our “enemies.”

  • Expressing Love and appreciation for our Kingman and Empress as Creations of Jah
  • Speak using consideration for the sensitivity for hearts and minds others

IMPORTANCE OF KING SELASSIE I AND EMPRESS MENEN IN RASTAFARI

 # 2 the Royal Lineage of  King Solomon

Another reason King Selassie I is so important in Rastafari culture is to put a face to the Royal Lineage of King Solomon.

King Selassie I is the 225 direct descendent to sit up on the throne of King David, which was also occupied by the wise King Solomon, who is King David’s son.

Rastafari Legend has it that, The Queen of Sheba and The Wise King Solomon made love and had a baby boy which was named Menilik, who became “King Menelik I.” King Menilik had a son “King Menelik II,” who is King Selassie I uncle. King Selassie I and King Menelik are of “the tribe of Judah,” which is part of biblical Royal history, related to King Solomon.

As Rasta we pay our Respects to King Selassie I as the face of Jah, and all the ordained Kings of the Tribe of Judah.

IMPORTANCE OF KING SELASSIE I AND EMPRESS MENEN IN RASTAFARI # 3

#4 Royal energy in the home

As stated Earlier images of “the King and Queen” as Rasta are reminders of our own Royal Heritage. For this reason Rasta love to have images of the King and Queen in every room in thier home. Including Wall hangings, plaqued photos of the King and Queen, Rastafari mugs, clocks with the Kings face, framed speeches by King Selassie I etc. Rasta believe and feel these Royal images of the King Selassie I and Empress Menen brings positive spiritual Energy into the home and into our lives.

IMPORTANCE OF KING SELASSIE I AND EMPRESS MENEN IN RASTAFARI

#4 Demonstrate Positive history and Heritage

Another Reason Empress Menen and King Selassie I have so much importance in Rastafari culture is that they demonstrate positive African history and heritage.

King Selassie I and Empress Menen were crowned November 2nd 1930. As former slaves, black people have had a hard time in Babylon recovering  the whole truth about our heritage and our history. Many black youth in school only learn that black people were slaves. Not much before black slavery and not much after black slavery, and not much about our contributions to society as a nation.

There were many photos taken of the life of the King and Queen. Jah ordained the crowning of King Selassie I and Empress Menen so that Black people have a positive black role model couple (male and female) after black slavery was abolished. All though the King and Queen are from Africa, and ruled over Ethiopia, in Rastafari, they represent positive role models ordained by Jah for all people of all Nations.

 

 

 

IMPORTANCE OF KING SELASSIE I AND EMPRESS MENEN IN RASTAFARI

# 5 Equality of the Sexes

In the Rastafari Livity, Men and Women are seen as equal, because, the same day

(November 2nd 1930)  King Selassie I was crowned King of Ethiopia, Empress Menen was also crowned, Queen of Ethiopia during the same coronation.

King Selassie I is also known as “The King of Kings” and Empress Menen is also known as “The Queen of Queens” in Rastafari Culture.

#6 Self Reliance & Legacy

The King and Queen through hard work and determination created a Legacy between them. King Selassie I created schools in his name, ……..Because of this example Rasta also like to build things in our name that people can utilize positively and that carries the name of Rastafari for generations. Bob Marleys legacy was his music and his message. Through his work, he was also self reliant. He left a legacy for his children, and his children’s children.

 

 

 

The Importance of King Selassie I and Empress Menen in Rastafari Re-cap

 

  • Generate powerful positive energy through images and words of King Selassie I and Empress Menen displayed in the home
  • Demonstrate positive African history and heritage, and positive African role models to Africans and the World
  • Demonstrate what an image of self respect and dignity looks like in order for one to emulate it
  • To put a face to the Royal lineage of King David and his son King Solomon
  1. Equality of the Sexes: Teach Rasta equality of the sexes. Both King Selassie I and Empress Menen were crowned November 2nd King Selassie I as “King of Kings…” and Empress Menen as “Queen of Queens…”
  • Self Reliance & Legacy: The King and Queen demonstrate to Rasta to Create our own work

 

 

 

6 STEPS TO CONVERT TO RASTAFARI

 

Many people who want to embrace the faith of Rastafari wonder, “just how do I convert to Rastafari?” The answer is, there is no right or wrong way to Convert to Rastafari. As a Rastafari myself having taken my vow just 7 years ago, there was some inner spiritual things I did, coupled with some outer changes to my environment and lifestyle that helped me to convert my spiritual beliefs from Christianity to Rastafari.

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.

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.

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.

Now, to Really know what it means to be a Rasta takes time. It’s not something that will happen over night. For my self I knew I was Rasta but I still had to learn the facts to back up my feelings…and I am still learning.

 

Rastafari is for people who know there has to be one true faith on the planet. One faith that unites all colors, all classes, all “Races” of people. A faith that has pictures of the Messiah,  a Faith that demonstrates that God has been and still is active today. That faith…is the Rastafari Livity.



So if you want to know what to say if someone asks you if you are a true Rasta, they are asking you if you really believe in Jah, and that he is an African Entity and that King Selassie I is truly the Elect of Jah. I can tell you how I know that King Selassie I is the Elect of Jah because if it wasnt for his “fight” with the Italian invaders, the Garden of Eden (Aden) would not exist today. Jah raised him up to protect and defend this precious land. Jah does not prevent things from happening. He allows them to happen, he places his player where he needs them and he allows the ball to roll so that the story will be repeated for Generations to come….So Your response should be.

“Yes…I know that his Imperial Majesty is the Elect of Jah. I know that Jah is an African Entity. And I know that my Destiny is Holy Mount Zion. ”

Rastas’ are full of faith, and knowing, not believing. If you embrace this way of life you should be too. I have a new book coming out soon…”Rasta Way of Life” and a study book for those who truly want to know all that Rasta knows.

Blessed. In the name of His Imperial Majesty.

Rastafari.

Black Women…themselves Bad name?



imagesCA3P5OQZFirst I want to start off by saying not all black women are the same. Just like not all black men are the same ok. So don’t tell me that not all black women are the same, I already know that.

What I am about to share with you makes my stomach feel sick. I think I feel this way because of the amount of truth and honesty I invested in the “friendship” thinking I could “help” or change this person.

 

I cannot speak of the exact situation for privacy sake…lets say I recently had the opportunity to get very close and personal with some black women. Some “stayed” longer, and some “left” early.

 

Something Wrong with her…?

In this “situation” there was one Jamaican black woman, I think she is in her 4os. She was constantly berating people when higher-ups weren’t looking and saying inappropriate things, and threatening people. (My stomach just felt sick again when I thought of the next black woman I will tell you about) So this woman, I actually met her before and she was acting the exact same way, no change. We were not friends, and we are still not friends. Anyway. I was told some time ago that this lady got her self into some trouble. Anyway I recently heard her say from her own mouth…”I am being charged with Criminal harassment.”

After that statement some time passed by, we had a situation in our “situation” that made her angry….low and behold…I witnessed her harass an older lady from Guyana. She was threatening her with physical harm, as she harassed her right out the door. I couldn’t believe it!!! So I thought well not everybody is like this its just her…..

  • Maybe her parents treated her like that
  • Maybe she doesn’t believe in God and believes she has to control everything
  • Maybe she ….

My Dream about Black Women’s feelings & Experience.

imagesCA6227MZBefore I forget (this is what I call blogging raw by the way) I had a dream, after asking myself why she was behaving like this, and the other woman I will soon tell you about. My dream (I feel teary about this) basically showed me that some black women carry so much pain, which turns to anger, from so many things (racism, culturalism, rejection, not feeling beautiful, having to prove ourselves, disrespected by black men, treated as sex objects, treated as stupid etc.) that we often berate, verbally abuse, fist fight, reject, bring down, other black women, as a way of releasing some of that emotional pain which has turned to anger, which has resulted in self-hatred.

Again I am aware that not all black women are the same. I know. But when I thought about it….I believe this does ring true for some. I have seen it in my own life…and this answer makes a lot of sense.  I am a black woman too. I feel the pain and have the experience too. Dont get me wrong, I love my self, and if I had life to do over again,   I would say “Jah, make me a Jamaican black woman again.” That is how much I am grateful to live life from this perspective. I just think trying to live in a society that does not promote your beauty, your culture, your talents etc. Is not easy. I think my life would be different if I were in an all black society. Hence my desire to live in Jamaica.

Where is God?


black jesus, rastaman, praying rastaWhere is God? (just some rambling)

If you are like me you have asked your self this question. Well God has a place in all things, but one very important point I want to highlight is, so does Satan.

Have you ever wondered to your self….there must be one truth out of all the Religions. One faith that is the real truth of God. There just has to be….or maybe you have thought all Religions are right they just have different ways of going about getting to God and believing in heaven.

First of all God is not in Religion

I over heard a woman talking the other day saying something like “well, I am a Catholic…” I wanted so much to say, do you know there is no such thing as Catholic. But I did not bother. But really folks there is no such thing as Catholic, that is a division, in a way, and isn’t God God. Jesus was a man, he came here with a purpose, the last thing he wanted to do was have people categorizing, and dividing themselves based on him or anything else. God is in your heart, if you believe in Jesus he is in your heart too. I tell people often…I do not discuss Rastafari because I believe my spirituality is something personal, it is just for me, so I don’t discuss, it. I am not trying to convince others that I am better than them, or that they should follow my way of life. I just think if its personal keep it personal.

What good is it to you?

What good is your spirituality for you if you cannot depend on it wholly and solely for all situations. In other words, if it doesn’t give you a sense of peace, security, and a knowing that all is working to bring you into your highest light, whats really the point of embracing the faith. I am saying if you say you embrace a faith, then there is no reason to become angry, or hostile, or unsure of yourself about anything. Your faith is there for you, always working for your highest good. Well, that is how I see it.

Channeling Aliens???

I brought up the issue of beliefs because I recently met a very nice lady, who told me she is Channeling Aliens and that the aliens have all the answer to everything. I am sure this is working for her because she speaks of it in great confidence. My only problem is….what is the faith called, how do you categorize it meaning how do you know when to do what? Is it giving you peace? I quickly learned channeling and depending on the guidance of Aliens was not bringing her any peace. It answered her questions and told her how the universe began, but she seemed to have an overload of information and a great responsibility on her shoulders. I wondered about her morals and ethics too, which I soon learned…she felt it better not to have any. Example, she is 43, doesn’t mind sleeping with a man as long as he is over 18 – I mean from 21 – 72. I just think that is way too slack. Just me, I am an Empress, and I think morals, and values, keep you clean, give you clarity, and give you a direct path to Zion. Just me.

God is everywhere

God is everywhere at all times. Notice I have used the word God and not Jah. Well here is where I switch things up a bit. Let me answer the earlier question. There is one true faith. Remember when Moses came upon the burning bush. He met God. So the truth of God must be somewhere. What faith did Moses practice? What was it called? He obviously believed in God, because he met him. History books will try to steer you away from the truth by filling your head with lies and leaving many things out. When Moses was through speaking with God, he was not the same man he was before, one of the things that happened instantaneously or over time was, his hair formed into dreadlocks. I know this because that is exactly what locks represent. The King James versin bible makes many references to locks, turbans, sabbaths, incense, covenants etc. These are all related to Rastafari. Rastafari is that one truth. Religion never existed, only covenants, with a purpose, with God.

But….

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAGod….Jah is very strong in Jamaica. I know this because I know it and because when I was there his symbols were everywhere. I felt so at home, so protected like I could do no wrong. Jah 2 major symbols are the Jamaican Flag, and the Lion of Judah flag. Jamaicans have these two flags, painted on walls, hanging in shops, hanging in homes, everywhere. I love it. Jah is real, he does have a place and he does have a people, right now here on earth, that is Jamaica. All Rasta people know it.

Why am I writing this? I am writing it for the people who want to know it. I am also writing this because I want people to know if you think you can be your own God and
Channel Aliens for guidance you are kidding your self. God is real, his name is Jah. This is no Joke. The other point I wanted to make is…a lot of people don’t want to have anything to do with God because they think God is boring. Well God may be boring, but Jah is not boring. He created everything so how on earth can he be boring. Jah is very musical, creative, He loves the outdoors, and loves helping people.

Ok enough rambling…thanks. Sorry I was going to really talk about some real things, then I just rambled.


 

“Charity” (Excerpt from Rasta book on beliefs)



Hi guys this is just an excerpt from my new Rasta book I am working on….This is on the belief of Charity. Bet you didn’t know we thought like this…

Charity

moneyRastafari believe that those who have money have been given a blessing and a Responsibility by the Most High.

Rastafari believe that money is to be given away to the Poor and needy.

 

Hording Money is a Sin

We believe that for one to know there are poor people who could make great use of that money that we have accumulated, and yet continue to hoard, as numbers on a bank statement…is a sin. Jah does not like this.


 

As Rastafari we “know” that to have a great deal of money means we are chosen to act as Delivers and caregivers of the poor and hungry and share the money.

 

Rasta Responsibility with Wealth

 

  • As Rasta once we have accumulated a good amount of money we know 3 things

 

  • We were chosen to have this great wealth

 

  • It is our duty as Servants of Jah to Share the wealth

 

To have food to eat each day is a blessing that we share with those who don’t have by sharing our wealth and abundance.

 

Rasta is very aware that every time we fill our bellies there is someone who is going without. Not because we have filled our bellies, but a full belly reminds us that some have and some do not have.

 

Rasta believe greatly in giving to the poor, needy and the hungry.

 

How I support “Charity”

Every time I get paid I buy a homeless person on the street something to eat big or small. I acknowledge them with a smile, and conversation. I know Jah is watching and it creates good Karma for me. It doesn’t have to be a lot of money. You could buy someone a $5 or $10 meal, once, a week or once every 2 weeks. Your belly is full so help someone else’s belly to be full too.

Rastafari as a Non African

white rastaAs stated earlier Rastafari is a way of life, that is rooted in African Culture and Traditions. Because Rastafarian is of Jah, people of all Nations may embrace the Faith of Rastafari. How should you embrace this faith as a non-African? There are a few guidelines to be aware of. A Few boxes that must get ticked, in order that we keep within the principles of the Rastafari.

 

Self-Awareness as Non African

 

Rastafari feels that the foundation of a man/woman must be strong in order to last and be strong. In other words in order to embrace this faith, you will need to start by learning about your own roots and culture. One of the principles of Rastafari is “Self Awareness”

 

Know Accomplishments of your own people

Connect spirituality to your own ancestors

Take pride in your own nation and appearance

Celebrate your people

 

Two Cultures to Be proud of..?

I became acquainted with one individual who felt it “ok” to learn as much as he could about Ethiopia and King Selassie I and Empress Menen, but did not feelrasta god, selassie it necessary to give the same respects to his own roots and culture. According to the principles of Rastafari, this is not allowed. It completely ignores the principle of “Self-awareness” and “self-Love.”

 

Rastafari does not ask Non Africans who embrace Rastafari to know African history and Culture and to ignore their own…to do such a thing is “Babylonian thinking!…It’s like me a black Jamaican African woman embracing the faith of Hinduism, and ignoring my own traditions culture, values and ancestry. Nonsense!

 

So if you want to embrace Rastafari as a non-African…

 

 

Principles of Rastafari

 

When you read the Principles of Rastafari with the Overstanding that Rastafari was…

1.created and implemented by Jah in heart of every Rasta men Rasta woman and Rasta child

2.to help and heal, the black nation out of Slavery, into freedom and independence,

3.to live as peaceably with other Nations,

4.Teach The black nation live clean in order to Enter Zion

…then you will acquire the “Spiritual Essence” of Rastafari.

The true light love and Guidance of the faith of Rastafari.

I have separated the Rastafari Principles into 3 major Categories, for Overstanding and Organization.

Jah

Self

Zion

Others

Jah

 

 

His name is “Jah”

“…Sing unto God, sing praises to his name: extol him that rideth upon the Heavens by his name JAH, and rejoice before him.”

– Psalms 68 vs. 4 King James Version

Who is Jah

Jah is the God of the Universe. There is only one God just as there is only one Universe. “God” does not exist. Only Jah!

What is the image of Jah ?

The image (vibration) or likeness of Jah is…

African,

Black….

 

Love (The Rastafari Principle of…)


Love

 rasta dating and marriage

“Love the black nation

Love of Self

Love all of Gods Creations

Love your brother and your sister show them love

Love the black Nation

All Rastafari regardless of his or her own  ethnic origin must love the black nation, as the black nation were made in the image of Jah and designed as Jah first human. WE know Adama nad |Eve Came out of Ethiopia, therefore all Rasta who love the Almighty love the black nation.

Love of Self

As Rastafari all Rasta must love themselves without limit and without restriction.

This includes your own origin, your facial features, Hair texture, skin-color, eye color etc. Self-Love as Rasta is of the utmost importance. As messengers of love, we know that in order to be effective we must first love our selves.

Love all Jah life Creations

We as Rastafari love Jah the Almighty Creator, so naturally we love all of his beautiful wonderful and Glorious creations. From Humans, to plants, to sunshine, to rainfall, to birds that fly in the sky to Trees…Jah Jah made them all, so with the love of Rasta, we love all living creations.

Love your Brother and your Sister

My ethnic origin is Caribbean Canadian. I as Rasta have to love all other Caribbean Canadian people’s. What’s your origin and back ground? Jamaicans and all Caribbean’s are considered my “brothers and Sisters” As Empress, I show them love, by being helpful, wherever and whenever I can, and sharing an uplifting word whenever possible.

Jah Jah smiles when he sees that I help and lift up my brothers and Sisters. Loving your brothers and Sisters is a demonstration of loving yourself.

Story:

I didn’t really fall in love with myself until I embraced the Rastafari levity. Before then I was wishing my skin was lighter and that my hair could be straighter. During the winter I felt more beautiful, because during the summer I would become “dark” when my hair was permed (chemical hair straighten) I felt more beautiful.

I didn’t know it then but I didn’t love my self until I started wearing my own hair and started to love my curls, and knew that they also represented my Ancestors, who I knew were walking with me everywhere I went. Love yourself for who you are, look at yourself from a perspective that is Royal and Impressionable. We are all created unique and beautiful in the eyes of Jah. See yourself as he sees you. A beautiful unique  masterpiece.”

This is an excerpt from my new Rasta book….”Rastafari Is”…. this is one of the 17 principles Rastafari people live by.

Jah bless. Rastafari.

How to Be a True Rastafari

how to be a Rastahow to be a true Rastafari5 Rasta Beliefs for Children Why do Rasta cover their hair? What is  Your Rasta NameHow to Keep a Rasta happyRastafari Rules for Women

religionForget Religion!

More and more people are coming to the light of Jah Rastafari. That is good, because we are in a very sensitive time. This time and your choice of spirituality will determine your spiritual destiny. If you plan to approach Rastafari the same way you approach religion – Forget it! They are not the same. All religion is corrupt anyway.  If you approach Rastafari as a Religion and not as an awareness or way of life…you will miss the light and truth of Rastafari.

Rastafari is 3 things very simple….

  • The truth of Mankind
  • Truth of Self
  • Truth of Jah (God)

Not complicated not religion, no set prayer times….Just follow your heart.

 

Accept and Love our Leaders

martin luther kingIf you want to be a true Rastafari you will have to love and accept our leaders the same way we do. Rasta Salute Marcus malcolm-xGarvey, King Selassie I, Bob Marley, Malcolm X and many more Leaders in the Movement for black Rights and Freedoms. We hang their photos in our homes and teach our children about the progress they made for our rights to walk free today.

Incorporate Spirituality into your Life

I always call Rastafari “my spirituality.” Do things that feel good. Light incents and light candles, just because it feels good. Air out your home, and keep it clean. Rasta love to burn some Nag Champa.

Natural Living

Rasta lives natural. When I was my hair I let the air dry it. Even though my locks are heavy when wet, I never use a blow dryer. I use tea tree oil to clean my home, and I always use natural deodorant, and do my best to avoid wearing perfumes.

Love the Black Nation

black man black womanAll Rasta have a deep love for the black Nation. If he is Rasta and does not love the black nation, he has disrespected his Covenant. The Black Identity is the apex of the Rastafari way of life. We have a black God, we know Jesus Christ, or Yeshua was indeed black, and we celebrate African Culture in just about everything we do – daily. The black nation is Rastafari – Rastafari is the black nation.

 

 

 

 

 

Love King Selassie and Empress Menen

king selasse with empress menenLove King Selassie I and Empress Menen. King Selassie I was crowned in 1930 in Ethiopia as King. His wife Empress Menen was Crowned the same time. There for we give just as much respect to the two of them equally. We know King Selassie I was sent here to protect Africa. Rasta are born to love King Selassie I and Empress Menen.

 

 

 

Hang your Lion of Judah Flag

rastafari jamaican flag, lion of judah flagThe lion of Judah Flag with its red yellow and green with the lion is the ultimate symbol of Rastafari. The lion represents King Selassie I and the Red Yellow and Green represents African. Together they are Rastafari. Keywords of this beautiful flag are.

  • Love
  • Strength
  • Spirit
  • Victory
  • Royalty
  • Hope
  • Pride
  • Unity
  • Jah

As you can see to hang this flag in your home shows the world that you represent the truth of the God of all mankind. Jah- Ras – Tafari.

Grown your Natty and be proud

black jesusGrow your natty dreadlocks crown and be proud! Let me be honest, when you first begin this journey as Rasta, it wont be easy. But as time goes on, it gets easier. People will look down on you…but for some reason the longer your locks get the less they stare….weird. Dreadlocks symbolize the same thing as the Lion of Judah flag, the only difference is that the symbol is now on your head instead of hanging on the wall. Oh Jah we love you so.

Buy Red Yellow and Green Everything

Rasta people love Red Yellow and Green. We have just about 1 of everything in Red yellow and green. Rasta hats, Rasta scarfs, Rasta jewelry, Rasta t- shirts, Rasta Towels, Rasta clocks, I have seen it all. Usually if we cannot get it in Red yellow and green we want it with the Kings face on it. I love that I could love my spirituality so much. Jah is so good to me. You don’t even know the extent of it. Jah – Rastafari, King Selassie I. I – I.

Thanks for reading….Do not forget to check my book “How to become a Rasta.” Jah Rastafari

King Selassie I of Ethiopia

 

King Selassie I is what Jesus Christ is to Christianity. Yes, King Selassie I was a devout Christian, but Jah has his way and Jah has his reasons. Rastas are Rasta for a reason and Rasta are Rasta with a purpose. I give thanks for the life and works of King Selassie I every day. When I think of him…I think of him as an everlasting friend and my personal Savior. Many Rasta feel this way too.

Celebration of Africa

Celebration of African Culture. Rastafari is a celebration of African and Caribbeanmalcolm-x Culture. As Rasta we celebrate every day by wearing Ethiopian colors, wearing Rasta Jewelry of natural fibers, burning incense in honor of those who walked before us. This includes Malcolm X, Marcus Garvey, Martin Luther King etc. and eating clean earth foods, such as yam, potatoes, and greens. Rastafari love African history, culture and literature too.

Gratitude for What you Have

In Rastafari, to wake up every morning and allow your self to curse is a Sin. As Rasta we are grateful for all that we have the big and the small. Every morning when you wake up you should say, thank you Jah for my bed, thank you Jah for a good nights sleep, and thank you Jah for another day.

Resist Satan

As Rasta we avoid temptations of Satan. This includes, porn, cigarettes, bars nightclubs, Lust etc. We live our lives in a way that is pleasing to the Most High Jah, and keep a tight reign on our thoughts at all times. Rasta knows all unclean behavior stems from our thinking. Keep it clean my beauties.

The Truth of Jah

Rastas know the truth about God. We are born with it. It is our Job to educate the black jesus, rastaman, praying rastapeople and guide them into living a life that reflects the life God wants for all of us. Rasta knows God is really Jah and that Jah is the light and truth of all the world. He has rules….he is not a God of slackness, Jah is God, the only God of truth, cleanliness, Zion and purity.

 

An “Inborn” Concept

Many people of the west view Rastafari as a Religion. That makes sense…many are not used to an inborn concept such as Rastafari. The truth is Rasta are born that way. They have the rules for living, loving, eating and worship, already written on our hearts at birth. Rastafari is a spirituality of the heart not a religion. That is why there are not that many Rastafari around,. Although many can be found in the Caribbean and Africa.

The Order of Rastafari

Rastafari is a faith of order. This can be taken figuratively and literally. In Rastafari there is a way of doing just about everything. The other way Rastafari have an order is to follow in the foot steps of King Selassie I and Empress Menen. They are our Role Models. To go against the order is to disrespect the faith. This includes but is not limited to….not swearing, having your own income, having one mate as opposed to more than one sexual partner. The order of Rastafari is written on the heart of every Rasta, man, woman and child.

Unity

Rastafari is Unity of all humanity. As Rasta because we are a spirituality of peace, we would like to see all nations come together in love and harmony. Rastafari knows that the earth was made for all and that all men are equal, but that some of us want to live from the ego and do not respect other. Unity is the Answer to many of the worlds problems.

Always forward…

As Rasta we are forward thinking and positive. I am having a hard time with this lately but, I know it is the right thing. Life is too short to dwell on the past and think negative. As Rasta we look forward to the future, and try to keep positive. Babylon is a hard place for a person who wants to live righteous and clean. Keep the mind and Jah, take time to meditate and keep trodding on.

Love



To Rasta, love makes life better. Through love we get happiness, understanding, unity, peace, respect, honor support….Rastafari know all good things for all people come from love. We need more love in the world. Rastafari is the rasta dating and marriagerighteous way of life.

 

Blessed. Rastafari.

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.


 

Jamaican Rastafari Empress Diary

“Today” – October 31 2012 (Halloween)

today it rained all day.

today while I was getting dressed, I took a moment to ask my self, how can I enjoy to the fullest the day today.

don’t think about yesterday, don’t wonder what is to come tomorrow, just enjoy today.

Today I had a wonderful day.

“yesterday” – October 31 2012 (Halloween)

yesterday I wrote a song while I was brushing my teeth

brush your teeth, everyday

stay away from tooth decay

you will be a better adult

if you get cavities it will be your fault…

that was yesterday.

“I ponder”…- October 31 2012 (Halloween)

I ponder so many things, mostly having to do with ethnicity.

Some people really don’t see color. But most of really do.

I am guilty.

I ponder…why certain people think I need them to make decisions for me concerning my life.

when they have not even a clue what its like to be me

they chalk me up to ‘stupid’ otherwise they wouldn’t think I need them, would they?

just ignorance…really.

“I had a good day today”- October 31 2012 (Halloween)

I wrote a poem

I chose a domain name for my new website

I had good conversation over lunch

I decide u make money by giving people what they want

I listened to my favorite song ‘caution’ by Bob Marley

I realized not all people think the same

I am a little tired but I had a good day today.

“Rastafari a Curse?” – November 1st 2012

I used to think being born Rastafari was a curse.

because no body understood me I felt like a freak.

Now I know there is no bigger honor among men.

Jah bless me every day.

I must do what I know is right as Rasta Empress. This is the one and only way I can find happiness in a very corrupt system that is against all that I stand for, Rastafari.

Sometimes I wish my people could feel even a fraction of what I feel.

The love that I have for Jamaica, the way  I feel so blessed to stare at a  Jamaican mountain, the way I feel clean clear and free, when I even think of a Jamaican beach. Jamaica is my home, the home I never lived in, but know in my heart Jah destined me to live there.

When I am having a bad day, I play the song caution by Bob Marley and all of a sudden I feel 100 percent. It makes me think of driving really fast in a Jamaican mini bus, with all the windows wound all the way down, and the hot Jamaican air blasting in my face. Could there really be any thing better than that? Well yes…going to a Jamaican night club in Jamaica that plays only Rasta Reggae music, and watching all the people move rhythmically the same, but all doing a different dance…this makes me high,. I also enjoy watching the women hold their beer in their hand while they whine slowly to the nice roots rock and reggae. Jah knows I love Jamaica. He made me that way.

It’s not good to work for Satan. Jah made me born with the formula of how to get into heaven,. Can you believe I don’t practice it – for now anyway. I miss those days. But as long as I know it…I am aware of it when a violation comes into my path, that’s most important.

the other day I was getting all excited and ready to start watching a horror movie, it was called, scary or die. So I put the movie in my laptop…It started out that these three people were driving in a pick up truck…then they stopped and had some immigrants hidden and bound in the back of the truck. They proceed to let them out and let them run across the border aimless in the hot heat…then one guy that was in the truck, shot and killed the first older man who started running….that is when I decided that this movie wasnt for me…but I did watch some more…then they shot and killed the other mexican immigrant too. The blood even though I know it was fake disturbed me. Rastafari does not allow me to watch such things. Too much corruption for the mind, I then took the DVD out and called it a night. I

am just rambling any way. I had a nice day today though. I can’t see for the life of me what time I will fall asleep tonight. I am so wound up for some reason.

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

all four corners of the earth. Guidance and Protection, Iternal.

 

Rastafari: light of truth for all Nations

I am a Rastafari woman. This was not a choice on my part, I was born this way. I am here to deliver a message. The message I have is for black people, with the reality of black slavery, black people need something to remind them of who they were before, who they are suppose to be, and to bring them back to their true way of life…loving the Almighty every day, and loving our selves.

Rastafari is a soul thing. I can only equate it to a computer that you get with all the programs already downloaded. It is out of my head, not my soul, not from my present download, that I am considering writing a book on “white Rastafari” I started to write it….I question how much to include slavery. If I write a book for white people and leave out slavery…then I wont be doing anybody any favours. Besides I feel that in order for whites to truly accept and receive the light of Rastafari they will need to know why the realities of the black struggle. If I leave this out, then I am not helping to close the gap of difference, and misunderstanding between black people and white people. Heres what it really boils down to. There are white people who already have the light of Rastafari, because they have chosen to. Then there are who know nothing about people of color. Some choose this way of life, other would like to learn more.

Because Rastafari is spiritual truth for all people, I decided I should choose to share my knowledge wisdom and awareness that Jah has given me, with all the world. It’s not good for people to live their entire life under a lie. I feel if white people know about Rastafari and follow it…perhaps their life will be more fulfilling more meaningful. One of the worst things a man can do, is to feel he knows everything already. This will only make him dumb.

My priority is to bring this light to black people…then to everyone else. Remember I was sent (born) to bring this light to black people. So, this is not some discriminatory choice that I am making.

It would be nice however it people would share with me what they would like to learn in such a book. I have my own Ideas, but i would love to know yours. Imagine a world without Racism. Really racism is just a lack of knowledge, and experience. Although some choose to be in this head space for whatever reason. Then others want to live a positive life, so they can feel clean and free in the heart. Ok I am rambling.

Jah Bless

Rastafari is the truth

Love and Light.

Excerpt from Rastafari Black peoples livity bible

5 Guidelines to Enter Holy Mount Zion

Honour and Respect Others

Honour and speak highly of those around you, Come Judgement day Jah will judge you based on how you treat and speak of others.

Resist Temptation

Resist temptation in Babylon. Temptation means opportunites to perform acts on behalf of Satan, each and every time no exception. Temptation comes in many forms.

  • Lust
  • Lying
  • Stealing
  • Cheating
  • Infidelity
  • Promiscuity
  • Addictions
  • Vulgarity
  • Swearing

Resist the urge to follow the ways of Satan, and embrace the way of The Most High. When you have the thought, to do these things, resist, and do something productive, and honourable in the eyes of Jah, the Almighty.

Honour Your Temple

Honour your Temple (your body), by eating clean foods, and resisting all forms of  sexual defilement, including sexual addictions. Jah does not like Immoral behavior or disrespect of his temple.

 Read your Bible Daily 1 hour

Read your bible daily for 1 hour, this will help you keep your mind on the concerns of the Almighty, instead of the concerns of Babylon. Jah finds favour with those whom tresure their bible and keep his word.

Avoid so called “Fun”

People are doing many things in the name of “fun.” “Fun” can get Rasta into trouble. Do not as Rasta…

  • Go to bars clubs unless it is Rastafari or Jamaican oriented
  • Gossip about others
  • Experiment with sex
  • Make fun of other people
  • Get into arguments with others
  • Stand up on the road side hanging out (idoling)

Rastafari are in the bible

As Born Rasta We have the Rastafari livity written on our hearts, we read the bible to raise our spiritual vibration, and to induce meditation. But there are many references to RAstafari and black culutre, I believe that were removed from the Christian bible over time.

 Instead of following the desires of Satan, concern your self with being productive and making a positive contribution to society as Rasta. As Rasta enjoyment means…

Bible study

  • Chattign with other Rasta
  • Building Rasta Buisness
  • Meditation
  • Contemplation
  • Cleaning the house (spiritual space)
  • Listenting to some Rasta Reggae Music
  • Teaching our Young ones the Livity
  • Watchin educational DVDs on black culture

Jah Say…

All with a clean heart are invited into Zion, but only those who Resist Temptation of Satan, and make rememberance of me each day may be able to enter Mount Zion. 

Just as the Christian bible says:  For many are called, but few are chosen.

Here is the table of contents for this book

  • Rasta Ital Cooking and eating
  • Your holy dreadlocks crown
  • 10 great black inventions
  • Employment
  • What is a Rasta
  • The Sabbath

Rastafari Book for black people to become Rastafari



This book is way overdue. My apologies to all my up and coming black kings and queens.

Jah wrote it on my heart about 3 years ago to write a book such as this. The truth is I had the bones of the book done, but when I was through with it I felt that it was almost too powerful. Where I live in Toronto Canada, we get silenced. If you are not promoting homosexuality, or lying to people, in some way shape of form, in order to tell them what they want to here, you will be silenced. None of those things is what I am about.

The original book I wrote consisted of many things I learned about “other nations” by way of meditation and surfing the internet. I am not out to offend anyone. Not only that I just wanted this book to be high Quality. I want people to enjoy this book so much that they tell their friends. I want it to be the book on Rastafari for people of Color. I want this book to inspire black people to follow the faith. I knew I had to do a better job.

I started to rewrite the book after a good friend of mine told me something. He said dont you know there are Muslims in Jamaica. I immediately thought, there is no reason for that. Rastafari is for the Jamaican black people. I now have a Job to do. I wrote my book on that basis, but you will not get that feeling when you read the book. I want all black-skinned people with coily hair to know Ras-Tafari is the rightful faith for them as determined by the Almighty him self. It is the job of every black Rasta to bring the people to the faith. Some don’t want to do it on a larger scale, but truly it is our job.

I am doing my part by writing about Rastafari, others sing about it. We must deliver the message to the black people.

My book is called “Rastafari: Black Peoples Livity Bible” I am in love with the title, and so far I am in love with my book. I wanted to keep it positive so that people will enjoy reading it and maybe feel inspired by it. Here I will share some of the book with you.

 

Black is a shade?
 
I was having a conversation with a friend of mine, she is white and has been brainwashed into believe that white is superior. We had a conversation alone one day, then she tried to share her belief with a young black woman selling T-shirts on the street that “black white and grey” are all shades. I had to correct her. “Black is all colors combined!” (therefore it is not a shade) it is in fact a color. “It is the strongest color.” She had no more to say about the subject. We as black people must stop accepting the brainwash. Just because something is written in a book, doesnt make it true. Think beyond, and know that you must use common sense and wisdom to know the truth. This information was also given to me by the most high during one fo my meditation sessions.  
 
What I learned under meditation
 
One day when I had fallen under a deep meditation it was revealed to me that black people are the original, whole and complete human. I did ask for evidence or “proof” that this was true. The answer I received was. ” take a look at the other nations. They have your hue-man characteristics, in lesser degrees in variation.” It was revealed to me that Indian hue-mans have our skin complexion but to a lesser degree…asians, have dark hair and even wide noses….to a lesser degree…hispanics, are curvy and wavy to curly-haired to a lesser degree…caucasians have black features and characteristic the very least. Caucasions…tend to be straight in the body…lighter haired…with very fine in many cases thin lips and …the hair of black hue-mans is strong…and can stick straight up in the air in its natural un chemically altered form. the hair of other nations…tends to be limp…and hangy.
 
Positive Black References
To coily African black hair and black skin complexion
Say
  • Jah hair
  • coily hair
  • My Crown
In reference to our beautiful skin tone say:
  • High Melanin complexion
  • Jah skin
  • Honorable complexion
  • Royal complexion
 
Black self-esteem means, promoting positive black images in the home, being your self a positive black role model, and being a  supporter of black upliftment and natural black beauty. Only a Rasta who loves him self and loves his black identity to the fullest, and who walks next to Jah, will honor this guideline.
 
Many black Rasta who practice the faith to the fullest, feel a natural loving unity towards his fellow black man, woman, and child. It is important that you do the same once you begin to grow your “Holy Rasta Crown.” As Black Rasta it i important that we place your black brothers, sister, and children “on a pedestal.” Speak to you black brothers and sisters as if you are speaking to a King or a Queen…because essentially you are! Rastafari is a spirituality that practices unity WITHIN the black community.
 
As you can see I tried to keep everything positive. I have a job to complete. I will do it as much as possible while I am here. Loving my people.
Jah loves you too.
 
My book should be available no later than, mid September. Then not too longer later I will be moving to Jamaica, to continue the message.

Rastafari_Cover_for_Kindle2

 

I am writing a book. Well I have written a book, but I changed some things. I realize people like details, so I decided that details is what I will give you guys. The first book I wrote, How to become a rasta, was written for any body who wants to become Rastafari. But, deep in my heart I wanted to write a book, just for my people.

This book answers many questions, and provides information about what it really means to be “black.”  I look forward to the new book. Here is the table of contents that I am building now…

  • who is Jah
  • what is a Rasta
  • where is Jah
  • why you should choose Rastafari
  • Who should become a Rasta

I had the option to reveal the truth about black people vs white people, but I decided it was much more positive, to just tell black people the truth about who they really are. Life is full of twitsts and turns, not knowing who you are wont help you much. We as black people need to start uniting and lifting eachother up. Just because I write a book soley for my people, its not racism, Im just fullfilling the job I came here to do, deliver the message of truth to my people. Also black people have different social, spiritual, mental, and physical needs, I want to cater to these things. I want my people to take their rightful place by way of following the truth.

I am a black Rasta Empress, who lives black, loves black, represents black, supports black and promotes black.

Blessings and love to all. Jah Ras Tafari

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.

No More Black Woman and Black Man Love Relationships?

Was it just survival?

Do you think you could find more black man and black woman relationships in the 80s and before because it was an issue of survival? We as a people were still fighting for our rights so to speak during those times. I’m still not sure if I can say we are in the clear. But maybe a lot of black men and black women feel a lot more free pardon the pun, to be who they are and therefore feel like they don’t have to have a black person by their side helping them to fight the fight any more.

What about those who are single and black and who today want to marry within the black nation. Is this something of past. Are these people shit out of luck. If they are you can count me in.

More black men date white

More and more black men now days are opting to date and marry non black women. It makes for slim pickings for a woman like me who refuses to be with someone of a different ethnicity than her, Why you may be asking. Its something that is important to me. It’s who I am, carried, on. I want to mate black to produce black because I am so in love with my culture and my people.

More black women interracial date

Many black women are opting to date outside the black race to, however I feel their reasoning is a little different from the black mans. I feel many black woman are doing this because frankly the black men leave them no other choice since black men are no longer choosing to date black women and b a lot of black women are dating outside their race because they seem to mixing and mingling more outside of the black community and it is a common occurence to date interracial these days.

The matter of respect for black women

I feel like the interracial mixing between white men and black women is more underground, or less public and that the interracial dating and marrying of white women to black men is more mainstream. I feel like the black woman who dates out side of her race does not get the same respect as the black man who dates out side his race

I feel like the black woman is seen as a sell out, where the black man is seen as making the right choice and doing what every man should be doing. When I look at it from the outside. I feel the black woman benefits the most. But maybe that is just my own biased opinion, you figure it out.

what am I to the black man now?

Sometimes I wonder just exactly what I am suppose to be to a  black man who now exclusively sleeps with women non black. I actually have someone in my life like that now. It make for alot of arguments. I think he likes me as a friend because I am the only women in his life who doesn nto want to have sex with him.

I need a black Rasta man!

Being Rastafari, not just cause  a man is black it means I want him. Oh No! he must be Rasta. A true Rasta, and also not too tall please….lol then I may want him. This friend of mine is confusing, the whole friendship is confusing. We had a terrible argument the other day and I said some pretty bad things. oh well.

Black men hate black women now

There are black men nowadays that hate black women so much so they want to show black women how much they hate them. It happens to me all the time. I just turn my head. There are some white women who are extremely jealous of black women’s DNA. The whole thing is diabolical.

Are black men brainwashed?

I am a black woman who loves black, I seek to date and marry black. I don’t have any thing to prove to anybody. I love my self. I feel hurt that black men seek to date out side of their race and feel some how they are better than black woman or that they want to cause pain to black woman. All in all its their own self hate. This is brainwashing at its best folks.

King Selassie married black

What happened to the days of King Selassie and his wife Empress Menen. Another example of a black man and black woman who loved each other. King Selassie married Black. He is seen as a Role model to many Rastafari men.

White girls and Black Rastas

I was having a conversation with a white female friend of mine one day….she asked something I can’t remember the question, my reply to her was “I wont answer that” She said “Why cause true Rastas don’t date white girls…” I looked at her with absolute shock. I said oh my gosh who told you that. She said this girl she use to know. I was shocked to hear that out of her mouth. But then she kept say “right, right?” I told her “yes, real Rastamen do not date white women” she said see I know you don’t have to hide it from me. She said “why” I said “its to keep the blood lines pure”

In Rastafari we have believed in this for a long time. But from years ago you would find Rastamen who did date white women. But there are many who refuse. There are some who do it for financial gain but are not happy in the relationship. Then there are some who wont even let the thought enter their minds.

Which Rastas date white?

Anyway I just find it sad to see that more and more black men are opting not to date black women. the only men that I can see that date black women exclusively are Rastamen, and that’s only some of them. It seems the ones that come from the smaller islands date white women abundantly. Many Jamaican Rasta who live in Jamaica are still interested in black women.

hm well, everybody can do as they like, it is a free country and its 2011. Time for people to make their own decisions and choices concerning love. The time of Black Unity, has ended.



 

Peace and blessings to all who read this. Unity for all, Jah Ras Tafari

Rastafari, Book Writing, New Website, More Jah Truth

Hello and Welcome to my Blog on Rastafari and Jamaican Culture. For those of you who don’t know me my name is Yuajah and I am a Rasta. Rastafari is my spirituality, my mission is to educate others on what it means to be a Rasta and to have self-pride self-love and self-awareness.

I am writing a new Rasta book

I am writing a new book. This is actually my second book. My first book is called “How to Become a Rasta.”  You can buy it as an e-book by clicking the link. My second Book is called “Rastafari, spirituality for African-Americans” or something very close to that. I wanted to let you know that, in case you were wondering why I havent created any new posts. I don’t want abandon my responsibilities. My master piece will be well worth the wait. “Rastafari, Spirituality for African-Americans.” Is my heart. It should be available online at amazon.com by late April 2012.

I have a new Rasta website

I have a new Rastafari website. Ok not a new website, but the old one made new. I am sure this is a shock for some people, because it was definitely a shock for me. lol. I hope you like the new design. It was very hard to select, and I wanted to make it just right for my site visitors. One cool thing about the new design is your can sign up to mingle with other members. Hopefully every is working smoothly with that. Just look on the top tool bar, to sign up.

More Jah truth

I have made a decision. I am not going to pussy foot around any more. I was pussy footing around before….but no more. I am going to blog about Rastafari the way that it is written on my heart. I wont say things to make people happy. Much of what I am gonna say is very controversial. Hey, maybe I will make more enemies than friends. On life to live right. I gotta be me. Please no I am not intentionally trying to hurt people. It’s just that I have a message to deliver, and if I keep “being nice” people will not get my point. Ok ok, I will be nice, I will just be selective about what I say. Just as the late great Bob Marley.

What is a Rasta?

A Rasta is someone who has knowledge about certain things in life. You are wondering what on earth I am talking about. Well one thing is thing. (belief) if you want to call it that. Your life should be your own. It was given to your by Jah to do as you like. Only you can stand before the Almighty at Judgement time. Many people do not appreciate my lifestyle. I think even those who know me, wonder “what is a Rasta” any way. It is not only about dreadlocks, it’s about living life, the right way, the clean way, the way Jah the almighty intended. I leave it there, I know my beliefs can sound radical to some, but they are mine and I stick to them. Not only that I have a responsibility to my ancestors to remind people of where they are coming from, and to educate others on my spiritual way of life.

That’s it!

That is mostly what I wanted to share with you. Check out the videos on the far right. Sign up to the jamaicanrastafarianlove.com online community, buy “How to Become a Rasta” and educate other with what you learn. Put love first in all things, remember Jah is watching….clean heart good intentions.

Jah Rastafari.

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.

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.

Jah Rastafari Loves you: 5 things Jah Wants from you!

Jah Loves you

Jah loves you and he He wants 5 Basic things from you.

the-rastaman-book-cover-image-2jpg

  1. life as a rasta womanTo live his way of lifeJah Way of Life is called “Rastafari.” It was called “The Nazarite Vow,” in biblical times” To live as Rasta is easy. Read my books. Rasta Way of life, Life as a Rasta Woman to learn more. Basically you will eat “clean foods” lock your hair, and treat people with The same respect you desire. Fair enough, right?
  2. To be loving towards your brother – Love your neighbour and other nation people as if they are your brother and sisters. They are your siblings under the name of Jah Rastafari. This is one of the 10 Commandments. “The most important one,” answered Jesus, “is this: ‘Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no commandment greater than these.”
  3. rasta_meditation_han_cover_for_kindleTo Keep his Sabbath – This is the part most people fail to understand. The Sabbath is a Day just for Jah. One should Honour it and keep it holy. Jah will reward you I promise. You will only know this after you do it consistently. EVERY time after I keep the Sabbath, something good happens in my life, without fail. In my book on Rasta meditation, I talk about the forgotten “spiritual side” of Rastafari.
  4. To not worship, nor keep any “other Gods” – Jah does not like when his children believe in other Gods, or keep other beliefs, or have idols in their home, or in their way of life. Do not do this.The bible says he will let go and turn us over to our own devices, if and when we do this.
  5. Rasta_Way_of_Life_Cover_for_KindleMake him #1 in your life in all things each Day. – Make Jah number one. Read your bible, give him thanks for all the things that make you happy, every day. Give thanks for all the things you know you could not live without, like fresh air, food, nature, family etc. Jah loves to be number one, he will take care of you, if you show him that you place him, and acknowledge him as “number 1” in all Things. Some examples praying over your food to Jah, asking him to bless the food before you eat it. When you enter your home, give him thanks, when you wake up in the morning, give him thanks again. These suggestions are simple,  but Jah loves the Honour so much, he will acknowledge and honour you back.

 

Please support my cause and help me to feed the homeless. Purchase one of my Lion of Judah designs. HAVE A BLESSED DAY.

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.

rasta incense spiritual use

Frankincense and Myrrh is a Incense so commonly used by Rasta. I wanted to do some research and find out what the internet had to say about it. At the end I will give you the Rastafari version of why this Incense is so important in our meditation.

Frankincense

downloadFrankincense is a white-colored resin from the Boswellia tree species, which is often made into an essential oil. This oil is often used as an overall health tonic, as it offers benefits to all of the body’s systems. One of its star functions is helping the body to optimally absorb nutrients.

Frankincense essential oil has antiseptic and disinfectant properties, and may help boost your immune system to more effectively ward off illness. It can be topically applied to minor cuts and scrapes to protect against infections, and it also functions as a coagulant to help wounds stop bleeding. One ancient way of using frankincense to disinfect is to burn it as an incense and rely on the cleansing properties of the smoke.

Frankincense Positive effects on the (temple) body in aroma therapy

This essential oil promotes relaxation by helping to open airways and reduce blood pressure, and is connected to feelings of mental tranquility, making it an excellent oil to use for meditation or a de-stress massage.

Great in Rasta Meditation!

download-1The use of frankincense combined with regular meditation could be very helpful in decreasing anxiety. To get the sweet, earthy aromatherapy circulating throughout your meditation space, put a few drops of the oil in a diff-user, or burn in an incense holder.

More Benefits of Frankincense

  1. Other benefits associated with frankincense include relieving indigestion,
  2. helping to fade wrinkles and scars and
  3. reducing acne. It has also been used traditionally to
  4. regulate menstrual cycles and aid with a variety of menstruation-related issues.

Myrrh

gold-frankincense-and-myrrhMyrrh is a red-hued resin that hails from various species of the Commiphora tree, and also often takes the form of an essential oil. Its similarities to frankincense are many, including its sedative properties and its benefits for use during meditation.

Myrrh Can Stop Hair loss?

Myrrh has a characteristic that contracts the skin, and has therefore been used to strengthen the gums and help prevent hair loss. It also has fungicidal properties, and may be beneficial to skin ailments such as athlete’s foot, eczema and ringworm.

…Myrrh rids the body of toxins?

Myrrh can also help relieve chapped skin, stimulates blood circulation throughout the body, and can be used during the course of a detox, as it increases sweat to rid the body of toxins.

Frankincense

When purchasing essential oils, it is very important that you choose a quality, therapeutic-grade variety. If the oil that you choose is less-than-quality, the benefits may be severely compromised – or non-existent – and you may be introducing unwanted chemicals into your body.

If you are going to be using essential oils internally, be sure that the oil is also food-grade, and that you talk to a naturopathic practitioner before beginning, as essential oils are very potent.

Why do Rrastaasta Love Frankincense and Myrrh Incense?

Because it gets rid of negative energy and helps the home to feel brand new. Rasta love to use this herb, after we have cleaned the home, and want to cleanse the home “spiritually” to complete the Job.

Rastafarian Religion: 10 Facts & Beliefs

Rasta Religion –  18 Jah Prayers White Rastafari

Some  Rasta Stereotypes – Jah Rastafari Morning Prayer

  1. 51fQ7SPHsSL._SX311_BO1,204,203,200_The God of Rastafari – The “God” of Jah Rastafari is “King Selassie I of Ethiopia, crowned King of Ethiopia November 2nd 1930. Some people wonder why we praise King Selassie I if he is dead. To Rasta King Selassie I never dies. Give thanks and praises to the Most High.
  2. The Colors of Rastafari – The official colors of Rastafari are Red Yellow and Green. The same colors that are on the Ethiopian flag. Sometimes we include white or black.
  3. Who was the first Rasta? – This is a tough Question to answer. If you ask me personally now that I have thought about it…all the main men in the bible. Samson, Solomon, Samuel, Ezra…King David…Jesus Christ….apart from them you have Leonard Howell. Google him.
  4. Biblical Royal lineage of King Selassie I – King Menelik, the child of Queen of 250px-Ras_Mäkonnen_(Wäldä-Mika'él)_(1852-1906)Sheba and King Solomon was King Selassie I uncle. Royal blood line from the lineage of King David and the Tribe of Judah. (left is a photo of King Selassie I father, Ras Makonnen.)
  5. King and Queen of Ethiopia – I am told first time in History a King and Queen were crowned (King of Ethiopia and Queen of Ethiopia) at the Same time. In Rastafari Culture there is no such thing as a woman beneath her man. If a Rasta woman is submissive to her Kingman, it is because it is written on her heart, not because Rastafari calls for her to do that.
  6. King Selassie I birthday celebrated – King Selassie I Date of birth is July 23 1892 and is celebrated by Rasta every year as “Earth Strong.”
  7. Groundation Day – King Selassie I visited Jamaica on April 21nd 1966. That day is know celebrated by Rastafari people worldwide as “Groundation Day.”
  8. Dreadlocks – Hair worn in Dreadlocks of Rasta Represent, Dedication to Jah, King 1-sexy-black-man-dreadlocksSelassie I, a symbolic crown, a natural way of life. No fuss, no vanity. “Yahweh spoke to Moses and said, ‘Speak to the Israelites and say:  If a man or a woman wishes to make a vow, the Nazirite vow, to vow himself to Yahweh, he will abstain from wine and fermented liquor, he will not drink vinegar derived from one or the other, he will not drink grape juice or eat grapes, be they fresh or dried.  For the duration of his vow he will eat nothing that comes from the vine, not even juice of unripe grapes or skins of grapes.  As long as he is bond by his vow, no razor will touch his head; until the time for which he has vowed himself to Yahweh, he will not go near a corpse, he will not make himself unclean for his fathjah rastafari beleifser or his mother, or his brother or his sister, should they die, since on his head he carries his vow to his God.  Throughout the whole of his vow he is a person consecrated to Yahweh.”Numbers 6:1- 8
  9. Freedom of Self – Rasta believe every man should be allowed to live his life as he chooses. For more Rastafari Beliefs and Principles read the book on amazon.com
  10. Rastafari is not a Religion – Rasta says Rastafari is not a Religion. Rasta say Rastafari is a way of life. Pure and simple. There are no Rastafari practices which one must do. More Rastafari Religion Facts to teach your child Here.

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.

Although she was well into her seventies, the Empress Mother Eleni stepped in to act as her step-great-grandson’s regent until 1516, when he came of age. During this time, she was aware that the neighboring Muslim states were benefitting from the assistance of other, larger Muslim countries like the Ottoman Empire. Eleni sought to neutralize this advantage by dispatching the Armenian Mateus to Portugal to ask for assistance. However, the Portuguese response did not arrive in Ethiopia until much later, when an embassy led by Dom Rodrigo de Lima arrived at Massawa on April 9, 1520. Transversing the Ethiopian highlands, they did not reach Dawit’s camp until October 19 of that year. Francisco Álvares provides us a description of the Emperor:

His appearance: “In age, complexion, and stature, he is a young man, not very black. His complexion might be chestnut or bay, not very dark in colour; he is very much a man of breeding, of middling stature; they said that he was twenty-three years of age, and he looks like that, his face is round, the eyes large, the nose high in the middle, and his beard is beginning to grow. In presence and state he fully looks like the great lord that he is.”

  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.

  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.

  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.

This is an excerpt from my new book “Jah Rastafari” from the chapter “How to Raise a Rasta Child.” Read the full book and purchase it from amazon.com

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.
