How to Dress like a Rasta Woman
- Dress like a Rasta woman tip #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.
- Dress like a Rasta woman tip #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
- Dress like a Rasta woman tip #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.
- Dress like a Rasta woman tip #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. Check out the book life as a Rasta woman to learn more.
- Dress like a Rasta woman tip #5 – Make-up to a minimum: Rasta women wear makeup only if and when 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.
- Dress like a Rasta woman tip #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 dreadlocks 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.
- Dress like a Rasta woman tip #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 Rasta 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.
- Dress like a Rasta woman tip #8 – Rasta Women’s and T_shirts: Rasta women can wear t-shirts.
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.
- Dress like a Rasta woman tip #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.
- Dress like a Rasta woman tip #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.

Rastafarian Religion:10 Facts & Beliefs
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- Biblical Royal lineage of King Selassie I – King Menelik, the child of Queen of 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.)
- 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.
- 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.”
- Groundation Day – King Selassie I visited Jamaica on April 21nd 1966. That day is know celebrated by Rastafari people worldwide as “Groundation Day.”
- Dreadlocks – Hair worn in Dreadlocks of Rasta Represent, Dedication to Jah, King Selassie 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 father 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

Rasta Way of Life for Children
- Equality of the Nations – All cultures and nations and their beliefs and way of life are equal to yours and significant
- RasTafari are Role Models – That King Selassie I and Empress Menen are our role Models as Rasta people.
- The name of the Creator – That the creators name is “Jah” and that King Selassie I is his Elect.
- 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.
- 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.

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.
Love and Unity.

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.

- How old was Abraham when Jah appeared before him? 99
- What did Jah establish between himself and Abraham? A Covenant
- What was Abraham’s name before Jah changed it to Abraham? Abram
- What is the name of the Land Jah promised Abraham and his descendants? Canaan
The Birth of the Rastafari Faith
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?
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.
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.
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, 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. 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. 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. 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” 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.
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, and Rastafari elders, including Planno and probablyJoseph Hibbert, also obtained a private audience with the Emperor, 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.
Defying expectations of the Jamaican authorities, 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. Meanwhile, he presented some of the Jamaican politicians, including Sangster, with miniature coffin-shaped cigarette boxes.

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
If you want to be a true Rastafari you will have to love and accept our leaders the same way we do. Rasta Salute Marcus Garvey, 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.

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
All 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
Love 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
The 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.
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
Grow 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.
