6 Ways to Honour Jah as a new Rasta
#1 Acknowledge him before you eat
Jah loves when we give him thanks. One of the ways to ensure that we are giving Jah thanks daily and on a regular basis is to give him thanks before and after we eat. Say a simple prayer before you eat. Before eating prayer to Jah: “Thank you Jah for this food I am about to eat. Bless it so that is nourishes my holy temple and makes me strong. In Jah Rastafari name. I give Thanks.” Acknowledge him after you eat After eating Prayer to Jah: “Thank you Jah.” It’s that simple and that easy.
#2 Acknowledging him when you wake up
Jah loves when you say good morning to him. You can say “yes Jah” or “good morning Jah.” whichever one works best with your personality. The more we acknowledge Jah, the more he will acknowledge us.
#3 Wearing Red Yellow and Green Jewelery
Red Yellow and Green are the spiritual colors of the Rastafari livity. The Lion of Judah flag is Red Yellow and green, with Gold. Wearing these colors makes King Selassie I and Jah happy. It brings a feeling of Royalty and ancient love of Africa and the time of Jah first created man.
wearing Red yellow and Green is also another way Rastafari acknowledge Jah. This is also another way to tell the world that we are proudly loving Jah in Babylon. Most people associate red yellow and green with Jamaica, Rastafari and Bob Marley. So they like our Red Yellow and Green Clothing and accessories.
#4 Having a Photo of the King in the Home
one of the most powerful things you can do to honor Jah is to have a photo of His Imperial Majesty in the home. Also if you would like, you can include one of Empress Menen Also. Having this photo is an acknowledgement to Jah that you are aware of his wisdom to Raise up a King through the lineage of Judah who would be honored for years even after his reign. Jah loves when we love his elects.
#5 Feeding the Birds
This is going to sound so simple. Birds are Jah creations too. When we feed birds we feed Jah love. It’s almost like saying thank you to him. Also in feeding birds we act as Jah servants giving food to his creations in love. Jah always needs more servants.
#6 Not Watching Television
Television is a lie. Jah wants you to get into life. To love him, to honor him, to study the bible for your own personal awareness. Do not spend time watching TV. Notice how everybody wants to dress and talk the same? To honor Jah, do not watch TV. Just meditate, clean, organize, sing praises and keep Jah at the forefront of all you do and all that you desire.
Give thank, King Selassie I.
