Biblical Awareness of Rastafari


As you convert to Rastafari it is imperative that you study and know the king James Version bible from front to back.   Abraham is where the Covenant starts.

 

Jah Covenant with Abraham – Genesis 17

Rastafari is a Covenant just like the Covenant that Jah made with Abraham

 

“…17 When Abram was 99 years old, the Lord appeared to Abram and said to him, “I am Almighty God; walk before Me and be blameless. 2 And I will make My covenant between Me and you, and will multiply you exceedingly.” 3 Then Abram fell on his face, and God talked with him, saying: 4 “As for Me, behold, My covenant is with you, and you shall be a father of many nations. 5 No longer shall your name be called Abram, but your name shall be Abraham; for I have made you a father of many nations. 6 I will make you exceedingly fruitful; and I will make nations of you, and kings shall come from you. 7 And I will establish My covenant between Me and you and your descendants after you in their generations, for an everlasting covenant, to be God to you and your descendants after you. 8 Also I give to you and your descendants after you the land in which you are a stranger, all the land of Canaan, as an everlasting possession; and I will their God.

The Birth of the Rastafari Faith

 

marcus_garvey_mdmMarcus Garvey, a man, of Jamaican Descent, a leader, a speaker, who brought hope

& and inspiration to Millions of Africans, once said “Look to Africa for the coming of a Black King!”haile-selassie- book cover

 

On November 2nd 1930, King Selassie I, a Black Ethiopian man of Solomonic Lineage, was Crowned “King of Ethiopia.” From that day forward Marcus Garvey was Hailed as a Prophet, to the Rastafari Peoples, for his “prophetic words” concerning the crowing of Emperor Haile Selassie I,  and The Rastafari faith was born.

 

What was the prophetic statement Marcus Garvey made about the up and coming crowning of King Selassie I?

Overstanding

 

What does Rasta Know?

This Rastafari Study Booklet was written for those who want to learn about Rastafari and know what every Rasta knows. I have written out the Questions for you…so that you may read and answer them in your own mind as you come upon the answers to the Questions in the paragraph text.

 

Rasta “Reasoning”

Rastafari is not a Religion but a way of life. To learn and study Rastafari is not a Requirement of the Livity, however if you should meet another Rasta The two of you You may engage in what’s known as a “Rastafari Reasoning SEssion.” in the hopes that you may “enlighten” one another with your perspective.

 

Rasta Overstanding!

Again this Rastafari booklet is based on the Knowledge that Every Rasta knows, in order to help those who want to learn about the Rastafari Faith and Livity, and to bring one up to speed so that one may have the full “overstanding” of Rastafari.

King Selassie I Visit to Jamaica (Wikipedia)

 

Haile Selassie visited Jamaica on Thursday, 21 April 1966. Some 100,000 Rastafari from all over Jamaica descended on Palisadoes Airport in Kingston,[1] having heard that the man whom they considered to be God was coming to visit them. They waited at the airport playing drums and smoking large quantities of marijuana.[1] Today the Rastafarians celebrate that Haile Selassie visited Jamaica on April 21st, known as “Groundation day.”

 

When Haile Selassie’s Ethiopian Airlines flight landed at the airport at 1:30 PM, the crowd surrounded his plane on the tarmac. The day had been overcast and stormy. After about half an hour, the door swung open and the emperor appeared at the top of the mobile steps. A deafening tumult was heard from the crowd, who beat calabash drums, lit firecrackers, waved signs, and sounded Abeng horns of the Maroons.[2] All protocol was dropped as the crowd pressed past the security forces and onto the red carpet that had been laid out for the reception. Selassie waved from the top of the steps; some interpreters have claimed that he shed tears, although this is disputed. He then returned into the plane, disappearing for several more minutes. Finally Jamaican authorities were obliged to request Ras Mortimer Planno, a well-known Rasta leader, to climb the steps, enter the plane, and negotiate the

Emperor’s descent.[3] When Planno reemerged, he announced to the crowd: “The Emperor has instructed me to tell you to be calm. Step back and let the Emperor land”[4] After Planno escorted the African monarch down the steps, journalists were puzzled by Selassie’s refusal to walk on the red carpet on the way to his limousine. [hence grounation,Iyaric equivalent of foundation, “uplifted” with the sound of the word ground in the sense of “making contact with the soil”] He was then driven to theKing’s House, the residence ofGovernor-GeneralClifford Campbell.[5]

As a result of Planno’s actions, the Jamaican authorities were asked to ensure that Rastafarian representatives were present at all state functions attended by His Majesty,[6][7] and Rastafari elders, including Planno and probablyJoseph Hibbert, also obtained a private audience with the Emperor,[8] where he reportedly told them that they should not immigrate to Ethiopia until they had first liberated the people of Jamaica. This dictum came to be known as “liberation beforerepatriation”. At a dinner held at the King’s House, Rastas claimed that acting Jamaican Prime MinisterDonald Sangster had stamped his foot at Lulu, Haile Selassie’s pet chihuahua, who, they swore, had responded with the roar of a lion.[9]

Defying expectations of the Jamaican authorities,[10] Selassie never rebuked the Rastafari for their belief in him as theMessiah. Instead, he presented the movement’s faithful elders with gold medallions bearing the Ethiopian seal – the only recipients of such an honour on this visit.[9][11] Meanwhile, he presented some of the Jamaican politicians, including Sangster, with miniature coffin-shaped cigarette boxes.[5]

Rasta Book – Rastafari: Black peoples livity bible

 

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
  • Dreadlocks
  • What is Zion
  • How to live life to enter Zion
  • what is so special about Emperor Haile Selassie
  • 10 things you should start doing today as Rasta
  • 10 Things you must own as 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

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

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

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

To be a Rasta is a huge Responsibility

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

Jah is my inner compass, Jamaica is my home

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

Everything I do is Rastafari, roots and culture

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

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

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

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

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

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


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

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

Moving to Jamaica is the reward!

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

Rastafarian God: Emperor Haile Selassie of Ethiopia

Do Rastafarians have their own God?

 

rasta book

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

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

Do Rastafarians believe in Jesus Christ?

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

Rasta Colors and the Ethiopian (Rasta) Flag

rasta flag

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

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

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

The proof is in the pudding!

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

For some Rasta God has no Face and no Name

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

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

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

Is God Black?

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


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

Bob Marley said “We are all One”

rasta marley bob

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

P.S.

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

Jah Rastafari Lives, and he lives forever. Want to know if the rasta way of life is right for you….read this article on 10 questions to ask your self.

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

Hey guys. As I stated I am writing a book on Rastafari for all of you.  This is my first book, and I have other things to do in my life so I have kind of slowed down on the writing for now. The good news is the rough copy is all done….so I just have to finish the final copy and we are all set. I know many of you wonder what Rastafarians believe on a whole slew of topics, but I wanted to make this post specific on love dating and marriage.

Rasta beliefs on dating non Rastas

rasta love and marriageMany “deep” for lack of better word, Rastafari men and women will not date someone outside of their spiritual beliefs. We understand that this could mean being single for a long time and even maybe forever. We depend on Jah to bring us the right person when the time is right. However, there are some Rasta who are ok with the notion of meeting someone who is not Rasta and then “converting” that person for lack of a better word, into Rastafari. So, like anything else to each his own. You will find more men will date a non Rasta woman, and more Rasta women, will not date a non Rasta man. This is generally speaking. Maybe its all about availability….who knows.

Why do some Rastas like Bob Marley have so many women?

rastafari love and marriageRasta men, are not immune to having multiple relationships with women. But truly I feel they just have too much love in their hearts. This is gonna get me in trouble….Most Rastafari men I would say 95% are faithful, and 5 percent not so faithful. This is for various reasons. Bob Marley was a very good-looking superstar, and he was Rastafari. Many women were attracted to him and I’m sure him attracted to them. What I am getting at is this for some men of Rastafari they have many women at one time because the women allow it. On the other hand there are Rastafari men who just don’t believe in sleeping around at all. In fact most of us “Jamaican Ras” operate in this manner. People get away with what they can folks…bottom line.

Do Rastas believe in true love?

Rastas believe big time in true love. We do believe that true love is possible, and when we love we love with all our hearts. For someone who is not ready for this type of love, they may feel undeserving, or “smothered” Rastas get into a relationship intending to stay there, most of us, for the most part. Love is one of the things we live for. With love, food tastes better, life looks brighter, and we can be mentally clearer. Romantic love is an essential part of human life. As an earthly being we have earthly needs. Love and affection are paramount to a person of Rastafari spirituality.


How can I make my Rasta King love me more?

Many women have put comments regarding their relationship wondering, is he truthful? Is he sleeping around? Things of this nature. Perhaps if you feel the need to ask these questions, he is not the one for you. If your man is clearly accessible and perhaps you want to deepen the bond the two of you have as a non Rastafari woman, trust him, and believe what he tells you about “Jah” and about life. Eat how he eats, live how he lives, love him how he loves you and respect it. Your Rasta King will greatly appreciate this. And when you do this and he wants to touch you passionately, you can thank me in the comments….lol

Rasta beliefs on Marriage

Truth is ladies, we Rastas don’t really believe in marriage. That is not to say we wont do it. Just most of us don’t make a big deal out of it. We believe the relationship is the marriage, and like marriage if we no longer want to be in the relationship we will leave. We also believe marriage doesn’t come with any gaurantees…just because you are married it doesn’t mean the person will love you for ever. We believe in letting love just be what it’s going to be and that a piece of paper isn’t all that important when it comes to matters of the heart. The support, the communication, being reliable, and being each others best friend is what a relationship should be all about. Put your heart in it and it will be great. This is what we Rasta believe about marriage.  This post is very short. perhaps I will writ more another time. Thanks for reading. Bye  for now.

Do Rasta believe in getting having children and settling down?

 

We Ras live for this type of relationship. To settle down and have a family is every single rasta dream. However we know sometimes Jah wants us to stay clear and clean for his own reasons. We accept the single life and embrace it just the same we would our committed relationship. A Rasta in a long-term relationship, typically is a happy one. We love to do things for our partners and for a children, because we see God in our partners and our children. Please visit my new forum if you are looking for information on Rasta dating, or post your own profile seeking love. Blessed Love. Rastafari is the truth every time!

Rasta man (jamaican) – how to date him how to love him

How to love a Jamaican Rasta man

rasta man love sexy men
true rasta man Dennis Brown

I have met people who say they are Rasta and are not. So this I write here and now is not about them. I am writing about the “true” Jamaican Rasta man. The kind who is humble, considerate, and gentle. The kind any woman would fall in love with. But these men are not always easy to be with, for many reasons. To sum it all up. If you are not Rasta your self, a Jamaican Rasta man may be difficult to deal with, and hard to understand his motivations.

Be gentle with your Rastaman

Be gentle with your rastaman, he is special and a true gift from God in the deepest meaning possible. Forgive him when he hurts you and is unaware of it.

Give your Rasta man space to be him self

Give your rastaman space to be him self. If you are not Rasta, this is of the utmost importance to keeping your relationship with him healthy and thriving. Not giving your rastaman space is a very fast road to having him run away from you.

Give him lots and lots of love, but be pure and clean spiritually

 

how to love a rastaman
give rasta lots of love

Give your Jamaican Rasta man, lots and lots and lots…did I say lots? ….of love. The only way your “true” Jamaican rasta man is going to reject your love is if he feels you are not good for him. Which usually means you are acting like your life is to serve the man “downstairs” instead of the man “upstairs” and that we Ras do not accept. So, give him lots of love and affection, and loving attention. If you have a true Jamaican rasta man in your life ladies…believe me you don’t even need a television set, if you catch my drift. Jah makes beautiful things.

Bob Marley had many lovers and many children

Bob Marley had many lovers and as a result had many children. This was his own personal choice.

bob marley had many wives
bob Marley had many lovers

 There Rastafari men who don’t even have one lover, there are Rastafari men who are very faithful, there are Rastafari men who wouldn’t even think to cheat on their women. Those men are probably with women who value the faith, and value themselves, among other things. You also have to remember, Bob Marley was a Superstar! Superstars have groupies, and we all know he is not the first man to have a baby with another woman outside of his legal marriage – and he wont be the last!

Are all Jamaican men promiscuous

 

are all jamaican men promiscuous
jamaican men sure are sexy

There are a lot of Jamaican men who are promiscuous. But I have said it before and I will say it again. I truly believe this is because in places like Canada and the United States they get spoiled. Very spoiled. Most of the women accept this bad behavior, so the men do it because they are getting away with it. One or two bad experiences and we women feel all the men are like that. But truly a Rasta man – a “true” Rasta man is not like that, I know that from my heart. Because The Most High created him to know “right from wrong”

Many women are attracted to the Jamaican Rasta man

 

Many women are very attracted to The Rasta  man. Some say its the hair (dreadlocks) I say its his inner self that attracts women. The innocence of his soul that is showing, ok yes. Combined with the dreadlocks, and some dark beautiful skin, this is very alluring. So, ladies don’t complain, if you wanted him, and you got him, just know to see someone and to know them are two different things.

My own Jamaican Rasta man, at least I hope ??

Can you believe I don’t officially have my own Jamaican Rasta man? I tell you what being a Rastafari  woman and dating, Is not an easy thing. The other day a guy from Bosnia of all places picked me up. Yes! Bosnia. These types of men are always attracted to me. That’s not what I am supposed to be typing about. There is a guy I met about 2 months ago, physically he is exactly what I asked the most high for. But can we have a relationship? I don’t know. He is in Jamaica right now and will return, in April of this year. He did seem nice ….maybe we can be an item, a Rastafari couple is a beautiful thing! Rastafari!

 So why does the Jamaican Rastaman have a bad wrap in relationships?

 There are some Jamaican rasta man who “take advantage” of the fact that women find them so attractive. Most are not like this. They no Jah is always watching and always listening and do not wish to be a sinner. This is the truth ladies. So please do not judge the whole bunch because of a few rotten ones. Rastaman knows right from wrong more than any other. And treating people with respect is a big part of our spirituality. Want to know if the Rastafari way of life is right for you….click here.

So whats the verdict on the jamaican rastaman?

There are many who are gentle and have good intentions. If you are a Rastafari woman you increase your chances greatly of having a loving fulfilling relationship. There are some who are “too in love with woman” and therefore sleep around. Knowing who we are and knowing what we Rasta know, these men are the exception and not the rule.

If you have a true Jamaican rastaman in your life, you are blessed you may not know it. But you are blessed. Oh and you don’t have to Jamaican to Rasta, but this is the type I am most familiar with as a Jamaican Rastafari woman.

I hope this article was fun and informative.

rasta marley reggae music: the fame of bob marley

Bob Marley is one of the most prolific song writers and reggae music singers of all time. He is known world-wide for his various songs about love, life, and political issues. Songs like (“war no more trouble”) and “could this be love?”, spiked in the reggae music scene, causing people want to know more about the man, behind the song.
 
 

 

 
 

 

 

Bob marley – the rastaman

Bob marley was a rastafarian. A man who believed in God, Love and Peace. He brought rastafari to pop culture. Before rasta marley, very little was known, to very few people,  about what it meant to be a “rastaman.” Bob made reggae music and rastafari, big in Canada, the USA and abroad.
 
 

 

 
 

 

 

Inspiration from the Rastafari lifestyle in reggae music

If you listen closely to Bob Marleys music, you will hear a man, who sings to people of all nations, all colors, all classes. This is due to the spiritual beliefs of rastafari that teaches, love, one love, unity, inity, peace, and spiritual blessings. It is thanks to rastafarians, like bob marley that “reggae music”, “rasta reggae music”, and “rockers”, is so well-known for deeper thought, and meditation.
 
 

 

 
 

 

 

reggae t-shirts, jamaica t-shirts, other rasta accessories

Bob marley t-shirts have become part of pop culture. Along with these ever-increasing t-shirts with their various prints, designs, and colors… “I love Jamaica” t-shirts are now popular too, and now pretty much any “rasta accessory, has been popularized.” Red, yellow, and green use to be only popular among Ethiopians and Rastafarians, but now, you can even find the odd baby, of various races, sporting their tiny “knitted rasta hats!” I am such a proud dread. Rastafari!
 
 
 
 
 

 

 
 

 

 

Bob Marley popularized dreadlocks and Rastafari

bob marley popularized dreadlocks world-wide. Now in 2010 wearing dread locks is seen as something associated with, breaking the mold, standing out, standing up, and a (hippie) retro lifestyle. Many non jamaican people who wear dread locks are also believers in love, peace and equal rights. Now, dreadlocks have also become so popular that you can even see those who perform punk music, or listen to punk music, wearing dreadlocks as their prefered hair style. Bigup to Bob Marley for all of that!
 
 

 

 
 

 

 

Bob Marleys music can open up the spiritual centers of anybody willing to listen

Bob Marley’s music continues to be music of spiritual enlightenment. The rhythmic reggae sounds, along with the words of this rasta reggae singer, about jah, and love, can help a person to reflect on life, the inner self, and good times of past. Many people love Bob Marley and the reggae sounds he created, and left as gifts for all the world to hear.
 
 

 

 
 

 

 

The thing I love about bob marleys music is….

The thing I love about bob Marley’s music is it can be listened to anytime of day, for any reason. You feel sad, listen to a bob marley song and you will soon feel better. Want to unwind? Play some bob marley tunes, you are sure to feel more relaxed “in a hurry!” Want to listen to what falling in love feels like? Listen to bob marley tune. Feeling rebellious…there is a bob marley song for that too. I find I listen to a bob marley tune when I want to feel my connection to jah, which is constant. But the feelings become increased by “ride natty ride” or “one drop!” If you are seeking some bob marley lyrics check here.
 
 

 

 
 

 

 

Bob Marley and other Rastafarians Reggae singers popularized jamaica

It is cool to be jamaican now. Reggae music is considered some of the best music in the world. people have fallen in love with jamaica due in part to bob marley and his music which included some cool reggae music vibes. Jamaica continues to be popular for our high population of rastafarians. Many people now, when visiting jamaican, seek out the rastafarians to hear their wisdom, and rasta philosophies on life.
 
 

 

 
 

 

 

Bob Marley and his rasta locks

It seems like everything bob did, made him cool, and popular! What a lucky guy. From wearing dreadlocks, to being rasta, to living in jamaica, and puffing on some sensi once in a while. Big up jamaica!
 
 

 

 
 

 

 

Damian Marley an upcoming legend on the reggae music scene

Damian Marley is the last son for Mr Bob Marley. He is 31 years old, and I feel he is just scratching the tip of the ice berg in terms of his notoriety to come. I see advertisments plastered in various places on the internet about this rastaman, Mr. Damian Marley, and his many upcoming Tours with Nas ( a popular hip hop artist) These two make a fine team, and some great music. Check out the song entitled “on the road to zion”
 
 

 

 
 

 

 

Weight on his shoulders?

Damian was once asked in an interview if he felt the weight of his fathers success on his shoulders. He replied “no” I feel my fathers….(not verbatim) success lifting me up.” spoken like a true rasta man. Damian is very talented. And his locks are long and so beautiful. I just had to throw that in there.

rasta reggae music blew up in the late 70s

I know rasta reggae music blew up in the late 70s because I was born in 78. The sounds of bob marley, dennis brown, gregory isaccs and garnet silk surrounded my new born spirit. I am sure that these singers influence in my life, are a big part of why I have known I was a dread since I was a little girl. Back then the singers sang about love peace, and jah. It was something new, political and different. Jamaica will always be popular due to Rastafari, and those who continue to create in the name of Jah Rastafari
Thank you for reading this article, Jah Love!

jamaican flag meaning: yellow, green and black

jamaican flag, jamaican flags, jamaica flag, jamaica flagsThe Jamaican flag! Wow, something so special. I have been seeing this flag in many places since I was a little girl, but never truly understanding its beauty until I was in my 30s.
When I look at the Jamaican national flag, I see, strength…two big yellow stripes criss crossing each other to make an x, surrounded by green and of course black.

“i love Jamaica” stickers with the Jamaican national flag

I remember when I was a little girl, I would be sitting in the back seat of my moms car. We would go into one of the predominantly Jamaican neighbourhoods in Toronto, say “eglinton ave” as its known, and there would be these “I love Jamaica” bumper stickers on the bumper of peoples cars. It would usually include the Jamaican flag spread across to cover the sticker length. Most were shimmery, and very pretty. I remember the pride I would sense from the driver when I viewed sticker sitting on his or her bumper. That little yellow “x”, surrounded by the green and the black. Back then it meant nothing to me, but as I got older I started to notice those “i love jamaica bumper stickers” even more.

"Rastaman" a tribute to all rasta man

“Rastaman” a  tribute to all rasta man

 We are the God people of today yesterday and tomorrow. I wanted to tell all  rastafaria tribute, is my way of paying respect to the men of the  Rastaman of the rastafai culutre

We rasta people are often looked at with obscurity and intrigue. Many do not know what we are really capable of. The love in our hearts and the things we can do to make others feel at ease. Unless you know a rasta man personally, you wont know that he is pure love in human form. We the rasta people, believe in love, acceptance, Jah. Just be one with Jah and all good things will follow. The rastafarian know that and they share their love and talents with the world. Here is my tribute to some famous rasta men. 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

 

Dear Rastaman “Bob Marley”

 

 

God made you! We loved your works. Your many songs of love. Many songs about Jah and zion. One of my favorite songs created by you is “punky reggae party” I think I love this song, because it could almost not be reggae music. But you have that way about you dear Bob, to take a song and make it “splash!” Punky reggae party is almost like where reggae meets punk music or funk music but not quite.

God made you! The ladies love you! You are the son of the great legend” Bob Marley”. You too have the creative genius, or the musical gift. I only learned of you in 2006,

when you hit song “Welcome to jamrock” was playing in Montreal, in cars driving by and on the radio. I heard that song and it made me want to dance! I then saw the music video, and was in awe of this young talented man whose “locks” where swaying in the video, almost touching the ground. The girls on the internet say you are “cute”, I say you were designed to look this way with a purpose. I am honored to know you are rastafarian like me. Another messenger of Jah roams the earth. Respect to you Mr. Damian….Rastafari

Dear Mr. Jacob Miller

You are my favorite rastaman singer. I love all of your songs. From “I am a Rastaman” to “all night till Day Light” your fans love your for your honesty your lyrics and your lively performances where you connected with your audience without hesitation or thought for what others in high places would think. Mr Miller I plan to name a pet cat after you some day. I will call him Mr. Miller. You are another example of the works of Jah.

Rasta man Mr. Sizzla

You blow my mind. You are truly a blessing to this planet. I saw a video on youtube on how you are responsible for a place in Jamaica where rastfarians live and are educated by a rastfarian priest, On the teachings of Rastafari, so that they themselves may educate the people. You also mentioned the children as being the future, and that we must raise them up with the values of rastafari and protect them from uncleanlieness and wickedness of bablylon. Mr. Sizzla you are….very special. You are doing what God intended for people with money to do – help the ones who do not. Thank Mr. Sizzla.

Dear Rastaman Mr. Dennis Brown

Mr. Brown, you are my biggest rasta man crush. God I think you are cute, with your classic “black” wide nose, and beautiful lucious lips, and your “natty dreadlocks”, and smooth angelic like voice. Looking at a picture of you makes my heart beat fast, oh my! I wish I could have met you. you made many love songs that made us all wonder and think “what must that have been like?” From “silhouettes” to “cheater” You made us think and ponder relationships and deep love, with songs like “how could I leave you” and “aint that lovin you” Many of these songs were written by others.  Mr. Brown the way you sang these songs, you made them your own. I grew up listening to you as a child, having no idea you were rasta. That smooth voice, those smooth words, I should have known. The biggest part of your musical recognition is that, dance halls now use your songs, to “christen” the songs to come as a way, of creating a feeling of greatness in the room. Many of you Jamaicans know what I am talking about. For those of you who dont, jus know only a few reggae artists have that type of recognition in the reggae music world. Dennis, you came to teach us about jah, and the natural magnetic love between men and women, and that love lives, and creates memories in all of us. Mr. Brown I love You.

“hey rastaman…hey what you say give me some of you sensi!” Biggup to all rastaman, I am so happy you roam the earth. I never really knew you until age 20. Now I know a rastaman is the best man – well at least for me as a rasta woman.

To all rasta man who were not named here, you are beautiful and unique. Jah mek you. Continue to be you, continue to love, Jah depends on you. One love to all. Jah bless.

Many see your red eyes after some herb smoking, the colors you wear, your red yellow and green, your long dreadlocks, hear your Jamaican patois,  and hear the intelligence of your words. But many will never really know the greatness of the almighty Jah, that resides inside of you.  Read Rasta Way of Life

Jah Ras Tafari!!
