Obtain an image of a “black Christ” and place in a very personal room in your home, such as your bed room or meditation room. Black hue-mans having images of a Christ that does not look like them, only erodes self esteem, and contributes to self hatred. Hang your picture of a Black Christ and see how your life starts to change.
Natural black hair
Anybody who wants to follow Rastafari as a way of life, must wear their hair in natural beautiful dreadlocks. Doing this will help to build your self esteem tenfold. I know because I have my hair in locks, and I am more beautiful and free, now then when I was wearing wigs, weaves and extensions. If you are not ready to lock, be sure to embrace your natural coily hair as an afro.
Support Black business
Supporting black business is extremely important for Self Esteem and the Rastafari community. This builds black business, and creates self esteem by shopping in a shop that has your image and interest, health in mind. Too many black hue-mans are shopping in stores, that know nothing of our culture, and physical or spiritual needs. Support black business and also black Authors, and as a black hue-man, you may feel more “spiritually attuned.”
Positive Black Vocabulary
Its time we as black hue-mans start to use “positive vocabulary” when making references to our to coily African black hair and black skin complexion.
In Reference to our hair we may say…
- Jah hair
- Coily hair
- Royal Crown
- Wooly Jesus hair
In reference to our beautiful skin tone we may say:
- High Melanin Complexion
- Jah skin
- Honorable Completion
- Royal Complexion
- Beautiful African Skin
- Burnt Brass Color
Using these “terms” will go a long way to creating self love, and inner self esteem as a black hue-man. I was sent here to tell you these things. What you are reading may actually be seen as an entire book on how to have black self esteem.
