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.

Blessed love to all my Empress Sisters. One Love.

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.
