  1. life as a rasta womanJah Rastafari 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” also known as Ital food, lock your hair, and treat people with The same respect you desire. Fair enough, right?
  2. Jah say, 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_kindleJah reminds us to  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 Jah Rastafari #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. Learn how to live with Jah in your life, read Rastafari meditation handbook. These suggestions are simple,  but Jah loves the Honour so much, he will acknowledge and honour you back.

  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.

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.

How  Rasta get their spiritual Heights

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 for LIfe Power

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.

#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.

#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.

# 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 Tell if someone is Rastafari


 

how to tell if someone is Rasta

You may be wondering how you can tell if someone is a Rastafari, well here are 10 points to help you out.

#1 Rastas do not eat meat!

Rastafari people does not eat Meat. Rastafari are Vegan. We have been “encouraged” or “guided” by Jah not to ingest, “dead Flesh!” To learn more read my book “Rastafari Beliefs and Principles.”

 

heart fill#2 Rasta show Love and respect for you

Rastafari are full of love. This is why they tend to show a lot of love and respect for their friends and family members. They like to be helpful, and considerate. They like to know that others around them are comfortable and feeling good. Rastas do things such as help people with (grocery) bags, offer to talk if a friend is feeling blue, or listen when a family member wants to share feelings about their day. Love and “Raspect” is what Rasta are here to provide…because we work for Jah.

#3 Rasta Read the bible often

Rasta read the bible. It makes them feel complete in their souls. The words of Jah, a Rasta closest friends, fills them with Joy, and reminds them of their duties and their spiritual destiny. If a person is a Rasta, they will likely read and talk about what is written in the bible with you. This is because the King James Version Bible is a Rastafari favorite book.

#4 Rasta mention God or Jah A lot

black jesus3Rastafari people believe in God, Many call him “Jah.” Rasta are concerned about Judgement. A time when Jah will determine ones spiritual destiny based on the deeds he performed in his lifetime. Rasta try to live “clean” in all areas of life. Some examples are, no swearing, no physical Fighting, no putting other people down etc. This is how Rasta stay on the safe side, in order that Jah will determine a Judgement of “peace and rest” for Rasta.

#5 Rasta try to stay away from sins of the earth

Rastafari steer away from the sins of the earth. Rasta knows we are living in Babylon. Babylon is a place that has little to no regard for Jah, and his Holy book. Rasta try to keep away from Lust, Lies, Gossip, fornication, adultery, pornography etc. If a person is a Rastafari, these things are displeasing to the soul of a Rasta.

#6 Rasta believe in Satan

Rastas speak of Satan. Rastas understand that there are 2 forces on the earth, Satan and his demons, which is wickedness, such as lying stealing, jealousy, division, etc. And, Jah and his Angels, which is Love, such as telling the truth, being kind and considerate of the feelings of others, working for “your own” in life, and Unity and love with other nations. Rastas know Satan is real, so Rasta have a keen awareness of Satanic behaviors, and mindsets, and try to stay away from these as much as possible.

 

#7 Rasta wear their hair in Dreadlocksbobmarleytribute

Rasta wear dreadlocks. Dreadlocks are the symbol of Jah and Rastafari upon a mans or a womans head. Its something every Rasta is spiritually asked to do. Dreadlocks mean…”I love Jah, and I strive for clean living…” Bob Marley was a Famous Rasta Reggae Musician. He wore his hair is big beautiful natural Dreadlocks, and was he ever good-looking. LoL.

 

#8 Rasta Love Red Yellow & Green

Rastafari love the colors Red Yellow and Green together or even separate. We Rasta usually sport some type of Red Yellow and Green beaded Rasta Jewelry. Such, as a necklace, a bracelets or Earrings. Rasta love these colors as they symbolize His Imperial Majesty of Ethiopia. Makes me feel good just thinking about “Red Yellow and Green.”

#9 Rasta knows a lot about African Culture

africa ethiopia…Positivley…Rastafari people know a lot about African Culture & Black History. Rasta people love to learn about African history, traditions, Peoples and way of life.  In Fact, African Roots and Culture and Rastafari are one. I try to read books on African history and watch videos on african history because this is the history of my Ancestors, which helps me to be a more well-rounded individual. Rasta also learn about African Culture because we know that all life began in “Mother Africa.” Also King Selassie I, (Lord and Savior of Rasta People) comes from Ethiopia Africa. So, Rasta are Innately Inspired to Love Africa & Black History, and especially the History and Culture of Ethiopia.

 

#10 Rastas encourage you to live natural

Last, but not least…Rastafari People encourage their friends and Relatives to live a clean natural lifestyle. Rasta doesn’t like to use medications, so they may encourage you to use Herbs, meditation, vitamins, or some natural Alternative to Babylon invasive, Destructive pharmaceuticals. Rasta knows that to live natural is to the live the way that Jah, The Creator, God intended, which in turn brings us closer to him. To Embrace the Rasta Way of Life please read my book on The Rastafari Livity.

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.
