Rastafari Chains ….(A Rasta Empress Poem)

  1. images-2Jah is my best friend and I know it.
  2. Jah is my best friend but I try not to show it.
  3. He waits on my patiently as I play in Babylon.
  4. Jah has the control..
  5. …he lets me play and carry on in Babylon.
  6. Jah has a mission for me, a mission of integrity.
  7. I keep wishing to be from the otherlife as a rasta woman cover side…
  8. a Babylonian in the heart, oblivious to African Unity.
  9. Jah I know I will meet you face to face one day…
  10. You will read my heart in a spiritual way.
  11. I am hoping that I pass your scrutiny…
  12. Until then I wear my Rastafari Chains of Love, Righteousness, and African Unity.

Jah just keeps pulling me back, I have no choice but to live this life, yes it is a blessing, but sometimes like a child I wish to be somebody else and I want to play.

 

Blessed Love.

Rasta Inscence: Frankinscence & Myrrh

Rasta Incense: Frankinscence & Myrrh

rasta incense spiritual use

Frankincense and Myrrh is a Incense so commonly used by Rasta. I wanted to do some research and find out what the internet had to say about it. At the end I will give you the Rastafari version of why this Incense is so important in our meditation.

Frankincense

downloadFrankincense is a white-colored resin from the Boswellia tree species, which is often made into an essential oil. This oil is often used as an overall health tonic, as it offers benefits to all of the body’s systems. One of its star functions is helping the body to optimally absorb nutrients.

Frankincense essential oil has antiseptic and disinfectant properties, and may help boost your immune system to more effectively ward off illness. It can be topically applied to minor cuts and scrapes to protect against infections, and it also functions as a coagulant to help wounds stop bleeding. One ancient way of using frankincense to disinfect is to burn it as an incense and rely on the cleansing properties of the smoke.

Frankincense Positive effects on the (temple) body in aroma therapy

This essential oil promotes relaxation by helping to open airways and reduce blood pressure, and is connected to feelings of mental tranquility, making it an excellent oil to use for meditation or a de-stress massage.

Great in Rasta Meditation!

download-1The use of frankincense combined with regular meditation could be very helpful in decreasing anxiety. To get the sweet, earthy aromatherapy circulating throughout your meditation space, put a few drops of the oil in a diff-user, or burn in an incense holder.

More Benefits of Frankincense

  1. Other benefits associated with frankincense include relieving indigestion,
  2. helping to fade wrinkles and scars and
  3. reducing acne. It has also been used traditionally to
  4. regulate menstrual cycles and aid with a variety of menstruation-related issues.

Myrrh

gold-frankincense-and-myrrhMyrrh is a red-hued resin that hails from various species of the Commiphora tree, and also often takes the form of an essential oil. Its similarities to frankincense are many, including its sedative properties and its benefits for use during meditation.

Like frankincense, myrrh also aids in digestion, can help fade scars, may strengthen the immune system, has been traditionally used to regulate menses and can be applied topically to disinfect wounds. It also helps to ease respiratory trouble and may act as a decongestant.

Myrrh Can Stop Hair loss?

Myrrh has a characteristic that contracts the skin, and has therefore been used to strengthen the gums and help prevent hair loss. It also has fungicidal properties, and may be beneficial to skin ailments such as athlete’s foot, eczema and ringworm.

…Myrrh rids the body of toxins?

Myrrh can also help relieve chapped skin, stimulates blood circulation throughout the body, and can be used during the course of a detox, as it increases sweat to rid the body of toxins.

Frankincense

When purchasing essential oils, it is very important that you choose a quality, therapeutic-grade variety. If the oil that you choose is less-than-quality, the benefits may be severely compromised – or non-existent – and you may be introducing unwanted chemicals into your body.

If you are going to be using essential oils internally, be sure that the oil is also food-grade, and that you talk to a naturopathic practitioner before beginning, as essential oils are very potent.

Why do Rrastaasta Love Frankincense and Myrrh Incense?

Because it gets rid of negative energy and helps the home to feel brand new. Rasta love to use this herb, after we have cleaned the home, and want to cleanse the home “spiritually” to complete the Job.

Twelve Tribes of Israel: Rastafari Personality Astrology?

twelve tribes of israel

Blessed Love to each and every one. In the name of His Imperial Majesty, Emperor Haile Selassie I.

I found you guys really liked my blog post about King Dawitt King of Ethiopia(1507-1540), so I thought I would look up some more information pertaining to Rastafari for you.

I really didn’t know what the Twelve Tribes of Israel meant as it pertains to Rastafari, so I looked it up in a book called…”Rastafari: A very Short Introduction.”

Here is what I learned.

The Prophet Gad (aka Vernon Carrington) , founder of the Rastafari group called the Twelve Tribes of Israel, believed that his mission was to reconstitute the ancient Hebrew tribes that bore the names of the sons of Jacob. Based on their birth month, all the members are assigned to a tribe and associated with a certain characteristic:

I had to read that twice to really get it. I immediately understood that Gad, was a prophet.

Tribe Birth Month Characteristic
Reuben April/Nisan Strength
Simeon May/Iyar Faith
Levi June/Sivan Will
Judah July/Tammuz Praise
Issachar August/Av Zeal
Zebulon September/Elus Order and Compassion
Dan October/Tishri Judgement
Gad November/Heshvan Power
Asher December/Kislev Understanding
Napthali January/Tevet Love
Joseph February/Shevat Imagination
Benjamin March/Adar Elimination

Upon Further Reading:

 

  • The Twelve Tribes of Israel Mansion of Rastafari was founded in 1968
  • Prophet Gad was reading the bible and receive a call from Jah, to “Reunify the Lost Tribes of Israel”
  • They follow the Hebrew Calendar that Starts in April and ends in March

 Beliefs of the Twelve Tribes of Israel:

Jesus Christ vs.King Selassie I

 

prophet gad twelve tribes

The Twelve Tribes are often dubbed “Christian Rasta’s” because while other Rasta’s tend to repudiate Jesus Christ, associating him with the Jesus of Lubeck, One of “John Hawkins” slave ships, Twelve Tribes members insist that Jesus Christ of the new testament, is the messiah and the only savior of humankind. To them Selassie was a Divine King from the same Linage as King David, Full filling the biblical prophecy, “The scepter shall not depart from Judah, nor a lawgiver from between his feet until Shiloh come, and unto him shall the gathering of the people be”(Genesis 49:10) He was a twentieth Century Representative of Jesus Christ, but he was not the expected messiah who will return in the bodily form in which he ascended into heaven.


This was very interesting for me to read. I had no idea about what the Twelve Tribes of Israel Rastas Believed before today. As for me? King Selassie I has filled up my life with so much beauty wonder and awe. I will leave you on that note. I have a “Jah Rastafari Prayer book” coming out. It should be on amazon.com any day now.

I want to thank you for reading this blog post. Share it if you find it interesting.

King Selassie I & Empress Menen Too. Now that I am older, I find I appreciate my faith a lot more. I really know the true beauty, blessing and wonder of Rastafari.

1-sexy-black-man-dreadlocks

  1. Tasty Ital food – My husband cooks strictly Ital food for us to eat. He doesn’t eat fish but still cooks it for me. He used to be a chef, so needless to say, He cooks some tasty Ital food.
  2. His Dreadlocks crown– My husband is a Rastafari, so he wears his hair in dreadlocks. I love it. I play with his locks sometimes. They are a reminder of the natural beauty of Jah creations.
  3. Rasta Reggae Music – Now I have someone to share my love of Rasta Reggae with. Almost every song I know and love he knows and loves too. Together we have created a beautiful collection of roots and culture music.
  4. Sexy and fit – My husband is so fit and sexy. He doesn’t even try as most Jamaican men don’t try to be fit. He has a washboard stomach, and he is lean and cut. Lucky me I guess.
  5. He promotes healthy eating – My Rasta husband is always reminding me of the importance of eating healthy and how it can encourage strength and a long life. I think its great because I was very much addicted to eating food out of a package.
  6. He Loves Jah – My Rasta husband loves Jah. He is always giving thanks to Jah, and sharing Jah teachings and Jah wisdom. I have somebody around me to share my love of Jah with.
  7. 0b04eab162db048d28eea8e63c2d415cHe Teaches me about Rastafari – Just when I thought I knew everything…My Rasta husband teaches me things about Rastafari I didn’t know at all. Like one day he mentioned the “Rainbow Circle Throne” Google it!
  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.
