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

10 Facts and Beliefs of RastaWhat is a Rasta? – Rasta Books

Rasta Stereotypes and Myths

rasta-mediation-handbook-book-cover

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.

  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.

  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.

Rasta Way of Life for Children

rastafari beliefs cover

  1. Equality of the Nations – All cultures and nations and their beliefs and way of life are equal to yours and dreadlockssignificant
  2. RasTafari are Role Models – That King Selassie I and Empress Menen are our role Models as Rasta people.
  3. The name of the Creator – That the creators name is “Jah” and that King Selassie I is his Elect.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.

 New blog post: 6 Rules to cook Ital Rasta food.

The Rastafari way of life has many restrictions

  • We do not eat meat
  • We do not smoke cigarettes
  • We do not have sex to relieve sexual tensions (we make love)
  • We do not believe in a lust driven life
  • We are non materialistic
  • We make Jah the focus of all that we do and say each day.
  • We donate to the poor and needy
  • We do not believe e in hording moneyblack man black woman cartoon

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.

5 Rastafari views and Principles on Money


tumblr_ngzdsbxUzM1u1kvguo1_500

  1. Money is a tool – Money is a tool. As Rasta we know not to fall in love, or to fall into lust with the journey. Money is simply a means to an end. Use it to accomplish another goal. Perhaps to purchase a house, to feed a family, or to buy a new Bob Marley or Dennis Brown cd to meditate to.
  2. Money is to serve and help others – I cannot count the amount of blessings Jah has brought into my life, simply because I exercise this Rasta principle. I use money to serve others by giving money away to homeless people living on the street. I use to do it twice a month, but now I try to do this once a week. Rasta knows to use his money to help and serve those who are in need.
  3. Money is not to be hoarded – Another key to prosperity that many people do not realize, but that is part of the Rastafari livity, is that money is not to be hoarded. Under Rastafari to be wealthy and to save it in a back account is a sin. In other words, according to the desires of Jah, money is to be given away. Take advantage of as many opportunities as possible to give money away. Rasta knows that to savemoney in the back is a form of hoarding, and selfishness and fearfulness. What type people and experiences do you think you will create if you carry such thoughts and beliefs in your aura. As Rasta we spend money freely and give away money freely (without expecting it back) because we know Jah provides, and Jah always provides us with more.
  4. Money is neither good nor evil – Rasta knows it’s not the money jah rasta prayersthat is actually evil…its the way the person uses it. Rasta doesn’t believe money is the root of all evil. We believe money is good because it can help us create more opportunities to serve Jah. Money is neither good, nor evil…its how we use it that makes it so.
  5. Money is not life – Rasta know money is not life. Many people live as if they will live forever. They think that money is everything in this life. Money is not life. It has been said that Bob Marley said on his death-bed “money can’t buy life.” Exactly. So, I try to keep in mind that money is money, and that life is life. I try to take in and recognize those beautiful moment in my life and cherish them as they happen. Like the time I took my 4-year-old step son to KFC and he tried to eat the who chicken breast in two bites as his face was full of ketchup. I enjoyed that moment. I watched him in what felt like, slow motion, and that is a moment I will never forget. No amount of money could equate to  the experience for me.

Ras tafari Movement & Culture

10 things about RastafariEmpress are not like prostitutes in Babylon –  Real Rastafari Reply – where is God? – Can a White Person Be Rasta?– Why Rasta say King Selassie I

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.

& 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!

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]

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.

How to Convert to Rastafari


how to convert to Rastafari

bob marley rastaBefore you convert to Rastafari there are some things you should know. I really don’t know how far along you are in your journey, but I will share this information with you as if you are just starting out.

Rastafari is a Journey….

rasta-mediation-handbook-book-coverThere will be trials and tribulations as Rasta. Some people don’t like people with locks. They may judge you as lazy, or dirty, or militant, or out of touch with reality. Rasta knows loving Jah is all about the journey, we accept the good with the bad, always looking forward to Zion. So…Just so you know.

Rastas are trying to enter Zion….

It is the goal of Every Rasta to enter Holy Mount Zion. We do this by adhering to the rules of Jah laid out for our lives, in the bible. Rastas have a few “extra” rules of the Rastafari livity that are not in the bible that have been spiritually inherited, that have more or equal importance. Zion is a place where Jah roams and piece abounds.

Rasta love Africa/Ethiopiaafrica ethiopia

Rasta love African Culture and African Peoples. We honour Africa by studying the history and Culture, and embracing the African Peoples. Rasta have a soft spot for Ethiopia and Ethiopian Peoples as our “Lord and Savior” King Selassie I is from Ethiopia, so our love of Africa is always in our Hearts, and on our minds. .

Rasta Love King Selassie I

rasta god, selassieKing Selassie I defended the Garden of Eden, the land where Jah placed his first man and woman that he made (Adam and Eve) as it is written in Genesis. For this Reason, Rasta know, King Selassie I was raised up by Jah to perform this very important task. King Selassie I is whats refered to in the bible as Jah “Elect.” So, Rasta know King Selassie I had a heart for Jah. That he listened to Jah, Loved Jah, and dedicated his life to SERVING Jah. For these reasons Rasta Love King Selassie I because we know that King Selassie I is the face of Jah for those who want to see the face of Jah. King Thanks and praises….Rastafari.

Rastas are the King James Version Bible….

Rastas are the King James Version Bible. I say are because loving Jah is the life you live. Every Faucet of your life. There are no exceptions. Rasta think Jah. Rasta love Jah. Rasta Serve Jah. Rasta dress Jah. Rasta need Jah. Rastas are humble before Jah. The King James Version bible gives guidelines and advice for all that concerns us, Rasta in life. Read the King James Version bible from beginning to end. Then Keep rereading it, from beginning to end, for the rest of your life. This is what Rasta do. We, Rasta are the King James Version Bible….Living by the words inside….accepting the wisdom and comfort as it comes too natural by absorbing the words of Jah.

 

No Conversion to Rastafari….!?

There is really know conversion into Rastafari. But It all depends how  you measure this. I measure a Rasta by his willingness to live by all aspects of the faith and have an unwavering dedication to it. For some its having all the knowledge you possibly can about The Rastafari Livity. Rastafari is a way of life not a Religion. There is no physical conversion… so to speak.

Book to Test your Self on Rastafari

I am in the process of completing a book to help those who seriously want to know what Rasta know…and to understand the Rastafari Livity from 51fQ7SPHsSL._SX311_BO1,204,203,200_Biblical times, and how that plays into Rasta of Today. I have also included some information about Bob Marley and Marcus Garvey and The Life of King Selassie I. It comes with Test Questions so that you can read the text and then test your self. I intend to write this book so that you will be able to absorb the most import chapters of all my books, including “How to Become a Rasta” & “Rasta Way of Life” and come away knowing that you are now Rasta!

To convert to Rastafari a person needs 3 basic things…

  1. To absorb as much information as possible. From a person or books.
  2. Lock his/her hair. Allow hair to grow into Dreadlocks
  3. Live the Rastafari Livity without any exceptions. Because if you break the chain “you are still Babylon.”

If Converting to Rastafari to you means, being able to “Reason” (share perspectives on Africa and the Livity and the King James Version Bible) as many Rasta do from time to time…then this book is for you. I hope to be finished by September 1st. Give Thanks. King Selassie I.

…say when they ask you are u a real rastafari?

haile-selassie- book coverYes…I know that his Imperial Majesty is the Elect of Jah. I know that Jah is an African Entity. And I know that my Destiny is Holy Mount Zion.

Now, to Really know what it means to be a Rasta takes time. It’s not something that will happen over night. For my self I knew I was Rasta but I still had to learn the facts to back up my feelings…and I am still learning.

 

Rastafari is for people who know there has to be one true faith on the planet. One faith that unites all colors, all classes, all “Races” of people. A faith that has pictures of the Messiah,  a Faith that demonstrates that God has been and still is active today. That faith…is the Rastafari Livity.



So if you want to know what to say if someone asks you if you are a true Rasta, they are asking you if you really believe in Jah, and that he is an African Entity and that King Selassie I is truly the Elect of Jah. I can tell you how I know that King Selassie I is the Elect of Jah because if it wasnt for his “fight” with the Italian invaders, the Garden of Eden (Aden) would not exist today. Jah raised him up to protect and defend this precious land. Jah does not prevent things from happening. He allows them to happen, he places his player where he needs them and he allows the ball to roll so that the story will be repeated for Generations to come….So Your response should be.

“Yes…I know that his Imperial Majesty is the Elect of Jah. I know that Jah is an African Entity. And I know that my Destiny is Holy Mount Zion. ”

Rastas’ are full of faith, and knowing, not believing. If you embrace this way of life you should be too. I have a new book coming out soon…”Rasta Way of Life” and a study book for those who truly want to know all that Rasta knows.

Blessed. In the name of His Imperial Majesty.

Rastafari.

how rastafarians lock their hair

dreadlocks cleanWelcome. I thought I would share with you how Rastafari their dreadlocks Rasta hair.

As a Rasta the correct way to do it is minus a comb and minus scissors. So there should be no cutting or parting out of hair by the scalp using a comb. Dreadlocks are technically supposed to be “formed by Jah!” It is the one part of our physical self that we “dedicate” to him to do what he wishes. This is why it becomes matted, which form dreadlocks.

Before I talk about how I created my own dreadlocks. I want to share with a page that shows how a girl in a video is getting her hair done in dreadlocks very professionally and very neatly. She has straight hair so it’s a little different from mine, but her locks look nice. Check it out Dreadlocks Video.

Starting my dreadlocks

When I started my dreadlocks…I knew for years I was going to do it. But I was scared. Scared that men would not be attracted to me…Scared that I would look ugly in my own “natural Hair” scared that my locks would be too “Rastafari” for my job….I was scared of so many things. At the time I started my locks I had braids in my hair. In all my fear…I pull out one braid at the back underneath all my “synthetic braids.” And “allowed” that one bit of hair to lock. I promised my self I would check on it in 2 weeks time. Well two weeks later I did check on it. It looked ok, but it didn’t look great. I figured “well, this is what I want….” So I decided to do my whole head. The day I started my dreadlocks I dedicated my life to Jah. I pulled out all the braids on my head. I did not use a comb in it…I did not cut any ends…I even had some hair glue in my hair from wearing weave…I left it. I wanted the shift to just start immediately and I wanted it to be Authentic.


My Locks and Becoming a Rasta

I shifted my priorities and I knew I would have to wear a head wrap. My locks were short, and ” natural” and to me…”unattractive.” Well, I wore a hair wrap and felt “free” but “ugly.” I began Transition wearing wigs. The day came when the wig could not fit over my dreadlocks any more. I had no choice but to let some air get to my hair.  I stood out like a sore thumb everywhere I went. But somehow I felt free… I washed my own hair in the shower, which I enjoyed doing, I felt beautiful from head to toe in “my own” hair! I felt like I had stepped into me.

That was 5 years ago. Today my dreadlocks are long, they look beautiful. I am wearing my own natural hair, some men find me irresistible…some are shocked, to see a black woman with long natural hair. Two things I didn’t expect having dreadlocks…How Free I feel, and how many men who are not black Approach me in conversation. I feel great knowing that like most women outside…I am wearing my own hair, and it is long, and beautiful.

Products I used to Lock my hair!

Rasta_Way_of_Life_Cover_for_KindleI used a lot of lime juice to force my hair to lock. I had to do that because My ends were full of Lye from perm I had used for almost 20 years. My hair could not lock using my natural coils. The lime Juice worked pretty good for my hair. I avoided washing my hair for 5 weeks to allow the locks to form. I did feel icky. When I finally washed my hair some of my Locks unraveled, But I just twisted them again and reapplied the lime juice. In Jamaica many Rasta use a mixture of real lime juice and aloe. I talk about this in my new book “Rasta Way of Life” Rastafari Livity Book. The Lime helps the hair to lock fast under the son. The Aloe kind of acts as a sticky sealer to seal in the loose hairs. I hope this was helpful.

Blessed.

Where is God?


black jesus, rastaman, praying rastaWhere is God? (just some rambling)

If you are like me you have asked your self this question. Well God has a place in all things, but one very important point I want to highlight is, so does Satan.

Have you ever wondered to your self….there must be one truth out of all the Religions. One faith that is the real truth of God. There just has to be….or maybe you have thought all Religions are right they just have different ways of going about getting to God and believing in heaven.

First of all God is not in Religion

I over heard a woman talking the other day saying something like “well, I am a Catholic…” I wanted so much to say, do you know there is no such thing as Catholic. But I did not bother. But really folks there is no such thing as Catholic, that is a division, in a way, and isn’t God God. Jesus was a man, he came here with a purpose, the last thing he wanted to do was have people categorizing, and dividing themselves based on him or anything else. God is in your heart, if you believe in Jesus he is in your heart too. I tell people often…I do not discuss Rastafari because I believe my spirituality is something personal, it is just for me, so I don’t discuss, it. I am not trying to convince others that I am better than them, or that they should follow my way of life. I just think if its personal keep it personal.

What good is it to you?

What good is your spirituality for you if you cannot depend on it wholly and solely for all situations. In other words, if it doesn’t give you a sense of peace, security, and a knowing that all is working to bring you into your highest light, whats really the point of embracing the faith. I am saying if you say you embrace a faith, then there is no reason to become angry, or hostile, or unsure of yourself about anything. Your faith is there for you, always working for your highest good. Well, that is how I see it.

Channeling Aliens???

I brought up the issue of beliefs because I recently met a very nice lady, who told me she is Channeling Aliens and that the aliens have all the answer to everything. I am sure this is working for her because she speaks of it in great confidence. My only problem is….what is the faith called, how do you categorize it meaning how do you know when to do what? Is it giving you peace? I quickly learned channeling and depending on the guidance of Aliens was not bringing her any peace. It answered her questions and told her how the universe began, but she seemed to have an overload of information and a great responsibility on her shoulders. I wondered about her morals and ethics too, which I soon learned…she felt it better not to have any. Example, she is 43, doesn’t mind sleeping with a man as long as he is over 18 – I mean from 21 – 72. I just think that is way too slack. Just me, I am an Empress, and I think morals, and values, keep you clean, give you clarity, and give you a direct path to Zion. Just me.

God is everywhere

God is everywhere at all times. Notice I have used the word God and not Jah. Well here is where I switch things up a bit. Let me answer the earlier question. There is one true faith. Remember when Moses came upon the burning bush. He met God. So the truth of God must be somewhere. What faith did Moses practice? What was it called? He obviously believed in God, because he met him. History books will try to steer you away from the truth by filling your head with lies and leaving many things out. When Moses was through speaking with God, he was not the same man he was before, one of the things that happened instantaneously or over time was, his hair formed into dreadlocks. I know this because that is exactly what locks represent. The King James versin bible makes many references to locks, turbans, sabbaths, incense, covenants etc. These are all related to Rastafari. Rastafari is that one truth. Religion never existed, only covenants, with a purpose, with God.

But….

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAGod….Jah is very strong in Jamaica. I know this because I know it and because when I was there his symbols were everywhere. I felt so at home, so protected like I could do no wrong. Jah 2 major symbols are the Jamaican Flag, and the Lion of Judah flag. Jamaicans have these two flags, painted on walls, hanging in shops, hanging in homes, everywhere. I love it. Jah is real, he does have a place and he does have a people, right now here on earth, that is Jamaica. All Rasta people know it.

Why am I writing this? I am writing it for the people who want to know it. I am also writing this because I want people to know if you think you can be your own God and
Channel Aliens for guidance you are kidding your self. God is real, his name is Jah. This is no Joke. The other point I wanted to make is…a lot of people don’t want to have anything to do with God because they think God is boring. Well God may be boring, but Jah is not boring. He created everything so how on earth can he be boring. Jah is very musical, creative, He loves the outdoors, and loves helping people.

Ok enough rambling…thanks. Sorry I was going to really talk about some real things, then I just rambled.


 

“Charity” (Excerpt from Rasta book on beliefs)



Hi guys this is just an excerpt from my new Rasta book I am working on….This is on the belief of Charity. Bet you didn’t know we thought like this…

Charity

moneyRastafari believe that those who have money have been given a blessing and a Responsibility by the Most High.

Rastafari believe that money is to be given away to the Poor and needy.

 

Hording Money is a Sin

We believe that for one to know there are poor people who could make great use of that money that we have accumulated, and yet continue to hoard, as numbers on a bank statement…is a sin. Jah does not like this.


 

As Rastafari we “know” that to have a great deal of money means we are chosen to act as Delivers and caregivers of the poor and hungry and share the money.

 

Rasta Responsibility with Wealth

 

  • As Rasta once we have accumulated a good amount of money we know 3 things

 

  • We were chosen to have this great wealth

 

  • It is our duty as Servants of Jah to Share the wealth

 

To have food to eat each day is a blessing that we share with those who don’t have by sharing our wealth and abundance.

 

Rasta is very aware that every time we fill our bellies there is someone who is going without. Not because we have filled our bellies, but a full belly reminds us that some have and some do not have.

 

Rasta believe greatly in giving to the poor, needy and the hungry.

 

How I support “Charity”

Every time I get paid I buy a homeless person on the street something to eat big or small. I acknowledge them with a smile, and conversation. I know Jah is watching and it creates good Karma for me. It doesn’t have to be a lot of money. You could buy someone a $5 or $10 meal, once, a week or once every 2 weeks. Your belly is full so help someone else’s belly to be full too.

How to Increase Self Esteem as Black Human (page 5)

 

 


black jesus3Black Christ

Obtain an image of a “black Christ” and place in a very personal room in your home, such as your bed room or meditation room. Black hue-mans having images of a Christ that does not look like them, only erodes self esteem, and contributes to self hatred. Hang your picture of a Black Christ and see how your life starts to change.

 

Natural black hair

Anybody who wants to follow Rastafari as a way of life, must wear their hair in natural beautiful dreadlocks. Doing this will help to build your self esteem tenfold. I know because I have my hair in locks, and I am more beautiful and free, now then when I was wearing wigs, weaves and extensions. If you are not ready to lock, be sure to embrace your natural coily hair as an afro.

 

Support Black business

Supporting black business is extremely important for Self Esteem and the Rastafari community. This builds black business, and creates self esteem by shopping in a shop that has your image and interest, health in mind. Too many black hue-mans are shopping in stores, that know nothing of our culture, and physical or spiritual needs. Support black business and also black Authors, and as a black hue-man, you may feel more “spiritually attuned.”

 

Positive Black Vocabulary

black coupleIts time we as black hue-mans start to use “positive vocabulary” when making references to our to coily African black hair and black skin complexion.

 

In Reference to our hair we may say…

  • Jah hair
  • Coily hair
  • Royal Crown
  • Wooly Jesus hair

In reference to our beautiful skin tone we may say:

  • High Melanin Complexion
  • Jah skin
  • Honorable Completion
  • Royal Complexion
  • Beautiful African Skin
  • Burnt Brass Color

Using these “terms” will go a long way to creating self love, and inner self esteem as a black hue-man. I was sent here to tell you these things. What you are reading may actually be seen as an entire book on how to have black self esteem.
