How to Become a Rastafari Empress

queen ifricaI know Rastafari is Forever growing. So I thought I would do a blog post just for the ladies. There are many women from all over the world who desire to embrace the Rastafari faith, but are unsure how to live as an Empress day-to-day.

There are some basic things you will need to know before I get into the specifics.

Rastafari is not a Religion – we do not speak of our faith as a Religion but more as a faith or way of life.

Rastafari is a spirituality of Royalty – We must carry our selves as Empress at all times. This means being a role model to our community and the younger ones around us at all times.

Rastafari is an awarenesss – If you are seeking a set of rituals to embrace, Rastafari is not for you. Rastafari is of the heart, an energy that is loving free-flowing, and values freedom, nature at all times.

How to be a Rastafari Empress

Dreadlocks

Dreadlocks are a symbol of Rastafari culture and adherence to the Rastafari livity. Rastafari women take special care to cover their locks when judy mowattout in public. However we make the exception for Rastafari African or Caribbean events if we feel comfortable with out hair showing. To be a Rastafari Empress the dreadlocks are a must. This is how we set our selves apart from the people of Babylon, and represent Jah the creator the Most High who lives in all things, and knows all things. Dreadlocks as Rastafari Empress are a symbol of Love, creation, the First man and woman, Ethiopia and much more.

Respect for your Kingman

As a Rastafari Empress Respect for your Rastaman is of the utmost importance. This means no yelling at your Kingman, or not letting him speak and say his peace. Also when in public a true Rastafari Empress will not disagree with her Kingman but only support him to show others that you are a loving and united front. Can you imagine Empress Menen disagreeing with King Selassie I in public. I think not. Treat your Kingman in the same manner. Always show your Kingman you will do whatever he asks of you because you love him in the same light that Jah loves him.

Clothing and Attire

how to becom rasta empressA Rastafari Empress is always mindful of how she is dressing. She avoids clothing that is revealing, or too tight to the body. We are sure to cover our buttocks area, and not to wear shirts or dresses which accentuate the bust line. As spiritual  Role Models of Royalty, a Rastafari Empress must dress modest yet Feminine at all times. Comfort is also a big priority for Empress, Rastafari Empress wear flat shoes, long skirts, and clothing that is versatile for both in and outdoor activities and includes the Rastafari colors of Red Yellow and Green.

Natural vs. Unnatural Appearance

Most Rastafari Empress choose not to wear makeup. If you are an Empress who chooses to wear makeup, be sure to choose colors that are natural and down to earth. This means no red lipstick, no eye shadow, and maybe eyeliner on very special occasions only. Rastafari Empress who are embracing the faith deep do not wear any Jewelry. However many Rastafari Empress do wear Jewelry but only of Natural fibres such as wood, or shell, we call this “Rasta jewelry.” As Empress we embrace a natural appearance to Salute the Most High and let our natural beauty shine out to the world.

Embrace African Culture

As a Rastafari Empress, one of your jobs is to Embrace African Culture, and to teach the Rastafari Livity to your children. We understand Rastafari is an awareness. We want our children to have the same wisdom and understanding as well. Things such as…

  • Respect for other nations and cultures
  • Keeping the commandments of Jah
  • Clean and Righteous thinking
  • That Jah the creator resides in all living things
  • This is how a Rasta woman embraces the Rasta Way of Life

Keep the Principles of the Rastafari Livity

A Rastafari woman lives by all the principles of the Rastafari livity. There is no acceptation. Things like Avoiding Satan’s temptations, eating natural unprocessed foods, and putting Jah first in all things that we do. The Rastafari Livity is about living modest, Humble and loving. However there are times when an Empress must stand firm. We try our best to use love to make our point as much as possible.

No more of other peoples Garbage for me!

garbageI have recently decided not to carry other peoples garbage around with me. I have had to make a real effort on this because I am a very sensitive person. Other people can really fill you up with their garbage. What am I talking about. I am talking mostly about judgments and other peoples negativity towards me. I will tell you how I am doing it, but first let me tell you a little more specifically what I am talking about.

It seems every person in my life is out to change me except for a few very close and meaningful friends. All others are out to change me. One guy even told me, that if I am not willing to banish my plans of going to Jamaica and starting my life there, he is not willing to be friends with me anymore. Needless to say, we are not friends anymore. I thought he was ridiculous  I really enjoyed talking to that person, but to me him trying to change me is garbage and foolishness and I don’t need it.

I had another guy who I loved so much (as a friend) who insisted that we pretty much move in together and start having children yesterday! I thought he was moving way too fast, considering he had done the same thing in his last relationship, and is now a Father to 2 children with whom he does not live with. In other words he moved way too fast and now he and that woman are separated.  Too much Garbage.

Then there is the people who have their own negative judgments of you based on who knows what without even knowing you.

I have decided to get rid of the Garbage. Here is how I am doing it.

  • I show an abundance of more love and respect to those who show love and respect to me
  • I read my bible daily to keep me in a positive frame of mind
  • happy faceI ignore those who disrespect me
  • I keep a book of my thoughts, so that I can write down what I am thinking and feeling and release it

I know the life that best suits me, because I know my own heart. The bottom line is nobody understands you like you! You know yourself best. What you need, what you are about, where you are planning to go. Do not hold other peoples Garbage like Judgments and criticisms of you in your head. You are a Child of The Most High, created in his light, that is all that counts.

I am releasing other peoples negative, unproductive, Satanic garbage from my head.

Love and Blessings to all.

Rastafari.
