How to dress like a Rasta Woman: 10 Tips & Guidelines

How to Dress like a Rasta Woman

  1. 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.
  2. 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
  3.   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.
  4.  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.
  5. Dress like a Rasta woman tip #5 – Make-up to a minimum: Rasta women wear makeup only if and meet rasta black womanwhen 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8.  Dress like a Rasta woman tip #8 – Rasta Women’s and T_shirts: Rasta women can wear t-shirts.
    Buy this Rasta Womans t-shirt

    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.

  9. 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.
  10. 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.

I hope this article was helpful to you as you embark on your new Journey. Please read my books to learn more about Rastafari. You might enjoy, “Life as a Rasta Woman” on amazon.com

How to cook Ital Rasta food: 6 Rules

how to keep a rasta happy

Make a Rasta happy by….Cook strictly Ital (Vegan) – Rasta love food that reminds them
of Jah living. Food such as vegetables, fruits, beans, seeds, and earth vegetables…, so be sure to cook strictly (Ital) Vegan food, to keep your Rasta Happy.

  1. Don’t Curse and swear – Rasta do not like the sound of swear words, or put downs, or anything that is said with a malicious or negative intent. Use positive words to express your self or simply leave out the swearing and negative intent. Rasta are sensitive beings.
  2. Show Love to Children and The Elderly – Rasta love to care for the poor, needy, elderly and children. If you care for persons from this group, this will make your Rasta very happy.
  3. You Spend time alone…this makes a Rasta happy – Spend time alone without stimulation from something or someone else. Rasta believes that time alone is time with God. Embrace it.
  4. If you want to keep your Rasta happy…Respect his or her alone time! – Respect when your Rasta is a lone.  A Rastafari spiritual and personal time is of the utmost importance. Rasta have spiritual times, that last for hours, or for days… If you can handle that…your Rasta will be quite happy.
  5. Love Jah Rastafari, and your Rasta will love you – A true Rastafari who loves and respects his partner  will want him/her to have their own faith, and Rasta takes simple comfort in the fact that they love God, and have their own personal relationship with him. Some Rasta may appreciate if a one does decide to convert to Rastafari.
  6. how to keep a rastaman happyPlay Rasta Reggae Music, this makes all Rasta feel happy inside – Rastafari men and women love to hear Rastafari Reggae music playing. It makes them feel good inside. Try playing some Rasta Reggae music to show your Rasta that you care and that you are sensitive to their needs and desires. Try some Dennis Brown, Some Gregory Isaacs, or even some “old school” Garnett Silk. Your Rasta will smile to be surprised by these spiritual sounds.

  7. Seek to “Overstand”
    – Seek to understand situations rather than get angry or become offended. Rasta love when people are patient and seek deeper “understanding” of things.
  8. Never discuss S*x – Rasta do not believe in discussing s*xual issues. We believe if your mate, is not a good match for you in this way…it is your fate. We use clean words for s*x, and we don’t seek to pervert or amplify sexual encounters. Rasta sees s*x as love-making.
  9. Buy Gifts that are Rastafari, these make Rasta happy- Rasta like gifts that are red yellow and green, related to Africa, or have a picture of Marcus Garvey, King Selassie I, or Bob Marley on it. When searching for a gift for your Rasta keep this in mind. Rasta love Rasta hats, and Rasta beaded necklaces in case you were wondering. These types of gifts make Rasta feel happy inside. Buy your Rastafarian flag.
  10. Respect your Rasta personal space and items – don’t change or touch or move anything that belongs to a Rasta. It may have spiritual meaning. Such an action may be taken personally, but Rasta are so gentle that they would never say. Keep your Rasta happy and don’t touch or move personal items.
  11. Don’t ask too many questions about his/her faith – Just accept Rasta as they are….I guarantee the Rasta in your life is accepting you as you are! So, why not return the favour? Don’t ask to many questions about his/her faith…it supposed to be a personal thing anyway right?
  12. Embrace Cleanliness, Dirtiness makes Rasta unhappy – Rasta like all things “clean.” Rasta love toRastafari live in a clean home, have on clean clothes, eat clean food, use clean language, and to maintain clean thoughts. That the Rastafari way of life.
  13. Rasta feel happiest when you love yourself“Self Love” is one of the basic principles of Rastafari. By loving your self, Rasta show you more love for accepting your self the way that Jah created you.

Empress Clothing and Attire

rasta empress clothing

  1. Only Skirts – It is encouraged that Rastafari women were strictly skirts. This is seen as embracing the feminine quality as we steer away from emulating the appearance of men (which “emulation” is a sin in the bible)
  2. Pants as disrespect – Some Rastafari women do wear pants but it is highly discouraged and seen as disrespect to the faith, and he Creator who designed you as a woman.
  3. Babylon Colors For Clothing – Rasta women may wear any colors except for pink, blue and purple. Red Yellow Green Black and White are encouraged, as these are Rasta Colors.
  4. Hats and head wraps – A hat may be worn on days when hair is not wrapped. This is to cover the root of the dreadlocks, the most important part of the energy which leaves the head. If a head wrap cannot be worn, a hat is encouraged. Dreadlocks of an Empress uncovered may be seen as “slack.” and not upholding the faith. Check out my Blog post called “How to Dress Like a Rasta Woman.”

7 Reasons Why People Become Rastafari?


#1 Their Parents are Rastafari

Why people become rasta
Rastafari facts and Rasta Information

Many people become Rasta because one or, both of their parents, are Rasta. I guess its kind of like growing up in a Christian household per say, where you learn about walking in the ways of Christ etc. Only many children of Rastafari parents, learn about “The Rasta Livity” and King Selassie I. as Part of their upbringing.

#2 Bob Marley the Prophet was a Rasta

Many people desire to become Rasta to walk in the foot steps of the grow dread locksHumanitarian & prophet and Rastafari Musician,  Bob Marley wrote the song “One Love.” Many people fell in love with him through his music knowing he was being inspired by (his faith) Jah. Many people know that to be a Rasta is to show love, unity and a respect for all of nature and Jah creations.

#3 Their Born with it!

Many Rastas are Rasta because they are born with the Rasta Livity. Jah chose them at conception, then at some point in their lives they have said “yes” to this beautiful gift, they can feel yearning to manifest itself in their life. In other words for some, Rastafari was something that had written on their hearts from birth. Invisible to others, but very real in the heart and mind  the individual (Rasta).

 

Rasta_Way_of_Life_Cover_for_Kindle

#4 Jah Chose them to Be Rasta…

black jesus, rastaman, praying rastaI’ve heard people say “Rastafari is an inborn concept!” and it is. So, many have it since birth, however there are those who are chosen and they don’t know until later. Because (I am assuming) they were not chosen at birth, but chosen later in life. I met a guy (Rastaman) who told me that one day, “Jah just took over” he said. I was happy he shared that with me. It let me know he understood what I had inside too. Rastafari can hit at any age…so there are those who have no clue they are Rasta until the right time.

#5 It Just Makes sense to them!

People don’t want anything to do with Religion any more, but they still want to maintain a relationship with the Creator. Many people know about Rastafari through Reggae music, then research the faith.

  • Rastas are non Religious, you don’t have to attend church…
  • We believe in humility, Peace & Togetherness, we are anti war
  • We do not believe in “converting” others to believe what we believe
  • We Respect nature
  • We try to live as natural as possible
  • We believe all nations should Live together in harmony sharing land and resources

In other words, I think some people become Rasta because it is so calm and peaceful to be a Rasta. There are no real obligations, only the ones you decide for your self, as a Rasta. The basis of the faith of Rastafari is Love! So, why not… become a Rasta...it just makes spiritual sense!

#5 Their Significant other is Rasta

Rasta CoupleMany people especially women, embrace Rastafari Livity because their significant other is Rasta. More people are traveling now a days, and many people are visiting the Caribbean Islands. Because of this many people who wouldnt normally know anything about Rastafari are now getting to know Rastafari Peoples. So, some feel it makes sense for the relationship to embrace the same faith as say, their boyfriend/husband or their girlfriend/wife.

#6 Rastafari  is their Culture

jamaican flag, the jamaican flag buyMany people embrace Rastafari because it is part of their Culture. I can tell you as a Jamaican my self, Jamaica is Rastafari, and Rastafari is Jamaica, There is no separation. Rastafari is such an intricate part of Jamaican Culture that you could almost say Rastafari made Jamaica what it is today. The Jamaican Music, Jamaican Food, Jamaican People, Jamaican Landscape, & of course the culture of Jamaica is all effected by the beautiful, love of Jah – the creator.

A friend of mine, who is also Jamaican, starting embracing the livity just before I did in 2009. He came to the faith through a best friend he has known since high school. I asked how he felt now that he was Rastafari. He said “It feels good.” He seems more spiritually at peace now, and he is now a teacher of Rastafari Culture and the life of His Imperial majesty. Rastafari was always his Culture, he just needed to come in a little bit closer to get the real fruits that Jah and his Ancestors had waiting for him.

#7 To Embrace holistic Lifestyle

dreadlocks postMany people “become Rasta” because they like what Rastafari represents. The holistic lifestyle, the love of nature, meditation, Creativity, A love for Africa the Mother land of all human life…Dreadlocks (natural and simplistic, no vanity.) Rasta Smoke Marijuana instead of Carcinogenic cigarettes. Rastafari is a faith that loves all things natural, because natural means Jah.

Blessings of Wisdom

18 My child, from your youth choose discipline,

   and when you have gray hair you will still find wisdom.

19 Come to her like one who plows and sows,

   and wait for her good harvest.

For when you cultivate her you will toil but little,

   and soon you will eat of her produce.

20 She seems very harsh to the undisciplined;

   fools cannot remain with her.

21 She will be like a heavy stone to test them,

   and they will not delay in casting her aside.

22 For wisdom is like her name;

   she is not readily perceived by many.

23 Listen, my child, and accept my judgment;

   do not reject my counsel.

24 Put your feet into her fetters,

   and your neck into her collar.

25 Bend your shoulders and carry her,

   and do not fret under her bonds.

26 Come to her with all your soul,

   and keep her ways with all your might.

27 Search out and seek, and she will become known to you;

   and when you get hold of her, do not let her go.

28 For at last you will find the rest she gives,

   and she will be changed into joy for you.

29 Then her fetters will become for you a strong defense,

   and her collar a glorious robe.

30 Her yoke[c] is a golden ornament,

   and her bonds a purple cord.

31 You will wear her like a glorious robe,

   and put her on like a splendid crown.[d]

32 If you are willing, my child, you can be disciplined,

   and if you apply yourself you will become clever.

33 If you love to listen you will gain knowledge,

   and if you pay attention you will become wise.

34 Stand in the company of the elders.

   Who is wise? Attach yourself to such a one.

35 Be ready to listen to every godly discourse,

   and let no wise proverbs escape you.

36 If you see an intelligent person, rise early to visit him;

   let your foot wear out his doorstep.

37 Reflect on the statutes of the Lord,

   and meditate at all times on his commandments.

It is he who will give insight to[e] your mind,

   and your desire for wisdom will be granted.

What is Rastafari?

Rastafari is a daily celebration of African Roots and Culture. The purpose of Rastafari is to guide one to live clean and pure that a person may be deemed “fit” (by Jah) to Enter Holy Mount Zion.

 

What is a Rasta?

A Rasta is someone who adheres to the Rastafari Livity (way of life). Rasta are “called” to carry “the light” of Jah Rastafari, and to deliver “the message” of this  way of life to others. By this we can see that to embrace the Rastafari way of life  is a responsibility and commitment of the heart.

Beliefs of Rasta about God?

 

Rasta know that God is Jah. that Jah is an “African” Spirit. That he is very loving, forgiving and very powerful. Rasta “know”that Jah created heaven and earth, the first man and woman, Adam and Eve, and he parted the Red Sea for the Israelites. “Jah” is the God of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob spoken about in the scriptures of the Christian Bible. Jah “Raised up” King Selassie I as his Elect, to protect the Garden of Eden.

 

What is The Rastafari Livity?

The Rastafari Livity is a Celebration of African Roots and Culture that honors Jah. Rasta live life daily in all things they do to honor and show love for Jah, Jah Elect and Jah Creations. From the food that is cooked (Ital) clean and natural, to the way we wear our hair (in dreadlocks)fuss and vanity free, to the colors that we wear (Red Yellow and Green).  Rasta Livity is a commitment of love and honour to and for Jah, the Almighty Creator of all living things all the days of our life.

 

The Spiritual Duty of Rasta

472d67be890623d093bc2ea5faf2fa72.jpg

To love

As Rasta it is our Job to show love. Rasta do not reject love in any form. If someone asks us to do them a favor, we do it…to show even more love. If someone wants to give a Rasta a hug we  do not refuse it. Some more ways Rasta show love is by being there for our friends and families, and Spending time in and surrounded by nature, to show Jah, the creator we love and appreciate the land he has given us. As Rasta showing love is one of the ways  how we honour Jah.

To Live Free

To live Free as Rasta is very important. Rasta believe life should have no restrictions. As long as a person is not “hurting life” or “taking life”, one should

live as one chooses. “Freedom” in life is the  basis for being one with Jah. Freedom to love and honour  Jah, Freedom to Roam, freedom to spend our spiritual time as we choose… Just how Jah, the creator, intended!

 To Be a Servant of Jah

jesushand0.jpg

To fulfill the duty of Rasta as Jah servant is very simple.Iit means helping and loving other people. As Rasta we see ourselves as “extensions” of Jah helping hand, heres on earth. Rasta allows Jah to “use us” as his instruments, to provide help, hope assistance whenever the opportunity presents itself. Rasta always say “yes” to opening the door for others, to carrying a grocery bag, to lending money to those who ask. It is the duty of Rasta to Serve Jah by serving his creations (others)

 

To Enter Holy Mount Zion

The Purpose of the Rastafari Livity is to provide a guide for those who desire to enter Zion (heaven). Zion is where Jah, the Most High roams. There is only love, peace, light, freedom, wholeness, and Jah “light” in Zion. Only those with clean loving, Hearts can enter Zion. It is our Duty as Rasta, to follow Rastafari way of life, as our Guide.. so that our soul may enter Holy Mount Zion.

That was the first portion of the book. I was too excited. I had to share some of it with you. It is not available for purchase just yet. At this rate it will be finished in 1 to 2 weeks.

Blessed Love to all.

May Jah Guide you and protect you on this life Journey.

Here is an excerpt from my new book Jah Rastafari Beliefs and Way of life

WHY ARE YOU A RASTA?

This section is for those new to Rastafari who may be concerned about what to say when asked “Why are you a Rasta?” Here is a suggestion on how to respond. It has two parts.

 

Why are you a Rasta?

Response:

“I know that King Selassie I is the King of all Kings talked about in Revelation 5:5”

The King James Version bible says…

“…weep not: behold, the lion of the tribe of

Judah, the root of David, hath prevailed to open thebook, and loose the seven seals…”

 

Why are you a Rasta?

Response:

King Selassie I crowing title is…“King of Kings, Lord of Lords, Conquering Lion of the Tribe of Judah, Elect of God.”

See how it matches up perfectly? Wikipedia it!

 

 

 

4 PILLARS OF RASTAFARI HEALTH

 

In Rastafari culture, good health is an all encompassing endeavor. We believe that good health is a result of…

  1. Healthy choices for the temple
  2. A calm spirit and calm mind
  3. Healthy relationships with others
  4. A close personal relationship with the Jah

 

RASTAFARI HEALTH PILLAR

Healthy choices for the temple

Rasta do not ingest pharmaceuticals (into the temple)

As Rasta we do everything natural as much as we possibly can. The reason is that we feel that Jah made man, and when he made man he gave them natural roots and herbs for their ailments. Jah did not create pharmaceuticals. Rasta takes herbs, roots and vitamins for most health issues. Many of us have natural health and healing books readily available in our homes. Rasta knows that Babylon created pharmaceuticals to keep making people take them (keep making people sick) so that they become dependent and Babylon makes more money. As Rasta you may purchase your own health and healing book online or your local book store.

I strongly recommend having a book in your home on natural medicine to help guide you into natural medicine and healing awareness.

Good health of the body is for the short and longer term as a Rasta.

Fasting for spiritual Health as Rastafari

Many people do not consider the spirit to be part of the health of the body. I can ensure the spirit is an integral a part of our physical and emotional well being and should be maintained and properly “fed.”

2 Reasons Rastafari fast…

Rasta fast to exercise the spirit so to speak, in the way that we halt a time when we eat so that our mind can experience our existence as the spirit instead of as a physical being driven by physical desires. Doing this as a Rasta helps one to practice self control and to develop spiritual health and awareness.

The other reason is to provide the body s some hours break form digesting food. Everything needs to take a break. It’s just healthy and wise to do so.

Many Rasta fast from Friday at sundown to Saturday at Sundown. Some Rasta fast on Tuesdays, to honor the Ethiopian day of Sabbath. As long as you fast one of these days, then you are covered as a Rasta, for exercising spiritual health and well being.

 

Rasta Temple cleanse

In the Rastafari Livity we are aware of all of the additives and preservatives that may be in our food, also we know that the human body does a good job of food expulsion. However because we as Rasta practice natural health care, we read and learn that the bowels could use some extra help in ridding itself of “gunk.” Rasta like to do a herbal cleanse once a month, for optimal health, and to promote healthy digestion.

I really enjoyed the book. There are some spelling and grammatical errors here and there, but overall, I learned a lot more about the Rastafari lifestyle than I thought possible. I felt a “good vibe” from the book. Check this one out if you are curious about what the term Rastafari means to a practitioner.
