3 Rasta Rules & Laws you may not know!

 

“And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, When either man or woman shall separate themselves to vow a vow of a Nazarite, to separate themselves unto the LORD:

51pVl20t+vL._SY346_

#1 Rasta must Avoid Strong Drink

alcohol-on-shelvesHe shall separate himself from wine and strong drink, and shall drink no vinegar of wine, or vinegar of strong drink, neither shall he drink any liquor of grapes, nor eat moist grapes, or dried. All the days of his separation shall he eat nothing that is made of the vine tree, from the kernels even to the husk.

All the days that he separateth himself unto the LORD he shall come at no dead body. He shall not make himself unclean for his father, or for his mother, for his brother, or for his sister, when they die: because the consecration of his Jah is upon his head. All the days of his separation he is holy unto the LORD.

Rasta_Way_of_Life_Cover_for_Kindle

And if any man die very suddenly by him, and he hath defiled the head of his consecration; then he shall shave his head in the day of his cleansing, on the seventh day shall he shave it. And on the eighth day he shall bring two turtles, or two young pigeons, to the priest, to the door of the tabernacle of the congregation: And the priest shall offer the one for a sin offering, and the other for a burnt offering, and make an atonement for him, for that he sinned by the dead, and shall hallow his head that same day. And he shall consecrate unto the LORD the days of his separation, and shall bring a lamb of the first year for a trespass offering: but the days that were before shall be lost, because his separation was defiled…”

rastaman

This is the law of the Nazarite who hath vowed, and of his offering unto the LORD for his separation, beside that that his hand shall get: according to the vow which he vowed, so he must do after the law of his separation.

Jamaica Vacation: 26 Items You MUST pack!!

Jamaica Vacation:

26 Items You MUST pack!!

 

a2273189e1ae876d4192796f53fe58c8.jpg

Here is a list of 26 Items I wish I brought on my trip to Jamaica, with me, or that I found I used a lot of when I was there. I hope it comes in handy for you. 

#1 – Condoms are a hot commodity in Jamaica – You may or may not need them. I am just because-you-probably-will-have-blizzard-sex-2-24845-1422308064-14_dblbigsaying. They are not always easy to get either.off-bug-spray-coupon

#2 – Bug/Mosquito Spray – Mosquito Spray. You will definitely need this especially at night. Like the one called “Off.”

#3 – Mosquito Coils – If you can get them in your native country. Bring them with you. if not Jamaica sells them. Now you will only need this if you visit the hills for a couple of nights. For some reason Mosquitos are attracted to foreigners, but do not bother locals. For real, no joke.

#4 – Lots of Face cloths – These are a must. Have them in abundance. Jamaica makes you sweat. You will use them to wipe your face, shower, wipe your mouth after you eat, and everything else in between. Just letting you know. Go and buy a pack of 5 for each person going on the trip.

#5 – Aloe vera gel for sunburn – Have this if you burn easily under the sun. Please bring 71Wu8keEplL._SY679_your own aloe vera gel with you every where you go. Bring at least 3 bottles have one in your hotel room and 2 anywhere else or to carry. One lady told me they got hustled all because they didn’t have their own aloe vera gel. So please bring your own.

#6 – Sunscreen – OK so I read sunscreen does not actually work. But for those who like it. Buy some… you are going to need it.

#7 – Portable Cups – Why not. Portable cups are always a good idea. Especially in a hot country.

#8 – Many sunglasses – Bring at least 3-5 pairs. Sunglasses get lost easily. Bring a set of 5 depending on how long you are staying. If you are not someone who usually wears them….you will now!81ZJtR4b9bL._SL1500_

#9 – Pepto-bism0l – You might want this. Only you will know. Or maybe some tums.

#10 – Baby Wipes – These are great to carry with you for quick freshen up. And believe me you are going to do a lot of freshening up especially when you are already out and away from home. carry these in your purse or back pack. 0307112_l

#11 – 2 pairs of flip-flops – Flip flops are great to have. Why not bring 2 pairs.

#12 – Lots of Body wash – I found I showered way more when i was in Jamaica than when I was back home. Jamaica is very hot. If you go out in the day, guaranteed you will need a shower when you get home. Body wash is best, because sometimes you do not feel like showering but you have to. Body wash makes showering quick and easy.  I like Dove, Dial, and Avon body washes.

#13 – Lots of 2 or 3 for the day underwear – Ok. You will need to have the amount of underwear to match the amount of showers you are going to take. No body knows what that number is so just be prepared. I say, have 2 underwear a day. If you do not use them, fine, but at least you got them.

#14 – underwater camera for Jamaica deep-sea excursions – If you plan to do any underwater adventures. It’s a good idea to get an underwater camera. I used to have one. loved it.

#15 – lots of large zip lock bags – These come in handy for a lot of things. Now check this out. 999999-6714070404On one trip just before I was leaving Jamaica, I stopped and bought my favorite perfume ever. No I cannot get it in my native country. Don’t ask me the name….darn it. anyway…if you want to carry any lotion or perfume back home with you..you will have to place them inside a large Ziploc bag or they will make you throw the perfume or lotion out. No the customs people do not care how much money it cost you or if you just bought it. So go get those large ziplock bags and save about 5 for your trip on the plane heading out. You can google this your self if you do not believe me.

 

20 Rastafarian Rules. Laws and Regulations

2f9be0e1c5e8f07cff42777279604f26--jamaican-people-jah-rastafari

 

#16 – Your own knife fork and spoon – Depending how long you will be there….have your own knife fork and spoon. I get tired of using plastic cutlery sometimes. 5017275-GRY33-fallback

#17  Back Pack – Back packs are great when traveling, especially if you have children. Every person on your trip needs to have his or her own back pack.

#18 – water bottle – Water bottle. Always.

#19 – running shoes – IF you plan to go hiking, I would say running shoes or some good hiking shoes are a good idea. If you are staying for a month or more, just know that there are some roads in Jamaica that shoes only last so long on. ab-products-xtra

#20 – After Bite – OK this is especially for you first timers travelling to Jamaica. You will need the after bite. Mosquitos fall in love with you when it is your first time. It’s not the kind of falling in love you will enjoy though. YOu are gonna need that after bite. Write a list, go to the drug store…and get it. Right now!!!

#21 – Laundry detergent – Think most people would not bring this but you will need it.Tide_Ultra_Stain_Release_Liquid_Laundry_Detergent_D Laundry detergent is one of the hottest sellers in Jamaica. Why because clothes get sweaty and dirty very fast. There is no “wearing the item for the second time without washing.” Bring some laundry liquid detergent with you incase you want to do a quick wash of your favorite shirt or shorts by hand, and hang them to dry.

#22 – Ear Plugs – Some people are not ear plug people. I am. I use them for many reasons. When people are making too much noise, for sleep….so you may want to grab some…you don’t know.

#23 – Camera SD Card and battery – You want to have extra SD cards for your camera for. There are certain things you just do not want to have to try to find…while on vacation.

#24 – Bathing suit – Everybody likes to visit the beaches in Jamaica. Don’t forget your bathing suit/swim trunks.download (3)

#25 – Passport – Goes without saying Right. But I Just included it anyway. Plus of course any other I.D. That you may need for you trip. Drivers license etc.k

#26 – laptop and tablet – You probably want to bring your tablet or laptop for various reasons, such as posting your trip to Facebook and YouTube, or just capturing your trip to Jamaica for your own family to watch and enjoy. Just a reminder. Don’t for get plugs and batteries if needed.

Enjoy your trip/vacation to Jamaica. If you want to learn about the Rastafarian Culture in Jamaica, check out my best selling book. Rasta Way of Life.

Its only available in paperback, because people are getting too hung up on the title instead of the contents of the book. Its kind of like someone judging you by your skin color instead of by your character. The content and quality is what should matter, not your preconcieved ideas….Blessed Love.

A book titled “Convert to Rastafari?”

convert to rastafariYes, I am aware that one cannot Convert to Rastafari as Rastafari is not a Religion. I am Tafari, I am aware. However there are many people today who are becoming aware of “the light of Jah,” and seek guidance to live this way of life.

Rastafari is a spiritual blessing for those who seek it.

Rastafari is a way of life that acknowledges Jah is some very specific, special and spiritual ways. Why must one go to a bald head for guidance on Rastafari? Why learn the livity from someone who is a student of the livity themselves?

Rastafari teacher, for Rastafari Students…Yes Jah, Give Thanks!

It is my work as Rasta on the Journey, to provide Jah Rastafari guidance to those who seek it. To embrace Rastafari is a blessing. Convert to Rastafari is my way of sharing this blessing of my faith, with those who want to embrace it too. The more Rastafari minded individuals we have on the earth, the better the world will be.

Blessed. Love.

What are the dietary restrictions of Rastafarians? by Empress Yuajah

Answer by Empress Yuajah:

Well…we have many dietary restrictions…however, it depends on how that Rasta chooses to follow the Rasta Livity (faith). Deeply or not so deeply.

  1. Rasta do not add salt to food – Rasta believe Salt is something that creeps up and causes illness in the body. More Jah spiritually without the salt.
  2. Rasta don’t eat eggs (I don’t) – I don’t eat chicken or chicken embryos. Instead I eat tofu or vegan bologna (something like that)
  3. Rasta do not drink cows milk – Instead we often opt for Almond, or Soya Milk.
  4. Rasta do not eat any meat, or Chicken – Rasta love to eat fish, vegetables, fruits, and legumes.
  5. Rasta Refrain from drinking Alcohol – Beer included. Wine Included. Some Rasta consume Alcohol.
  6. Rasta do not eat Shell fish – We believe shell fish are dirty because they clean the bottom of the Sea. Rasta believe causes illness in the body.

Again all of these things depend on the individual Rasta. You will find Rasta who consume Alcohol…we are allowed according to our faith. We Rasta know our fate by our choices, so if you witness a Rasta doing these things….he is aware that it is against his fate. He is choosing his own destiny.

Rasta have other Restrictions besides dietary. Read about them in my book Rastafari: Beliefs and Principles on amazon.

“Rastafari Royals” (a fiction book)

Hi guys. Well, I am starting to look at my life in new ways. One of things I am trying to do lately is try new things….let me get straight to the point.

I am writing Rastafari Fiction. Yes! Rastafari Fiction! Yeah weird. But it is truly one of the few ways I can teach Rastafari and get my point across.

anyway here is a sample of my book. …

Kingly Screamed Rexellas name as he barged into the Hospital room where she had just given birth.

He was huffing and puffing as he asked her the question that had been bothering him the whole way as he drove to the hospital.

“Did you name her yet?”

Rexella found it odd, he didn’t ask to hold the baby. She didn’t expect a kiss on the cheek, as it was against Jamaican and Rastafari Culture to show romantic affection in front of a parent. But he didnt even ask how Rexella was doing.

“Well…” Rexella looked at Kingly Quizzically..wondering why he was asking such an odd question.

“We….decided on Emily…Right?”

“Emily…?” Kingly doubled over struggling to catch his breath. “No, No, No!”

He finally stood up straight and and waved both his hands , and shook his head in negation.

Rexella wondered if he had been smoking Marijuana before he arrived, but knew that that was part of his Religion and resisted asking him outright.

“We cannot name her Emily!” Said Kingly with a force that made Rexella angry and uncomfortable. Rexella really started to second guess herself. She felt perhaps she married Kingly for all the wrong reasons….For Royal wealth, For his sexy Jamaican swag…

Maybe she had made a big mistake….Maybe she made a mistake in following her heart.

Maybe these Rastafari Royals really were “Devil worshippers,” and “Satanists” “with dreadlocks” as her sisters had warned her. Maybe it was time to consider moving back home.

King Heights was sitting in the Armchair across the room. The Royal Heights Family did not believe in the use of technology,  such as laptops, or televisions, but King Heights did carry a cell phone for emergencies, Just as Kingly was telling Rexella they could not name the baby “Emily” King Heights Received a text from Empress Decca….

“So, what are we going to name her?” Rexella asked Kingly very slowly and deliberately as she she struggled inside her self to understand why her husband wanted to change the name of their newborn baby girl at the last minute, and in fact after she had already been born.

Kingly thought Rexella looked extra beautiful as she now had a “glow about her, as she was sitting up in the hospital bed.

“Oh I don’t know…” Kingly tried to make himself sound as if he was hesitating…

If Rexella knew that Kingly wanted to change the name of their Daughter, something they had discussed months ago, based on the word of his Mother, Kingly knew Rexella would “dig her heels in” and refuse. Kingly knew Rexella didn’t really understand Rastafari.  Sometimes he knew it was just better not to explain.

King Heights suddenly stood up and awkwardly interjected….

“Daughta… Can I have a word with Kingly for a minute?

Rexella liked it when King Heights called her “Daughta.” It made her feel special…like a part of the family.

“Yes, of Course.” replied Rexella, as she swaddled and rocked her beautiful new baby girl, some more. King Heights could ask Rexella to have or to do anything. She trusted him….he knew she would always say yes.

King Heights walked over to Kingly and gently ushered him out of the room. smiling at Rexellla as he tried  to appear nonchalant, and in control of his emotions.

When they were outside the Hospital room door…King Heights asked Kingly with an Urgency in his eyes …

“….Did you bring the bible?”

“Yes! It is in my backpack!”

…..

Thanks for reading…sorry if it sucks!
