  • Support and Look after his Rastafari Empress
  • Support and Mold and guide his Rastafari Children
  • Make sure food is on the table
  • Fill the home with Love and Teachings of Rastafari

Support and love for Empress

Rastafari is a spirituality that is based on Royalty. It is important that Kingman be a demonstration of what it means to be a King for his Empress. Kingman in Rastafari has the last word and must never be seen losing his cool. Kingman is the backbone to his family and must project calmness and strength at all times. The order of Rastafari is child, woman, man, then Jah.

Mold and Guide his Youth

rasta childRastafari Kingman is the leader in molding and guiding his youth. He is the one to implement discipline when needed, he is the one to make sure his children are walking the straight and narrow path, that leads to righteous holiness and purity in the eyes of Jah. Kingman must teach his children to be loving, to be faithful to Jah, to accept others as they are… but do not accept their ways or their lifestyle. For Rastafari Kingman knows there are many temptations and false truths in Babylon

Food and Love #1 Priority

The role of Kingman is to provide love and food for the family. A Kingman knows this, and does whatever he has to fulfill this role. In Rastafari it is ok for the woman to put food on the table, but it is the main concern of the Kingman to fulfill this position. All Kingman love his Children and Empress and work and provide for the family out of the Rastafari love of his heart, and the blessing, of his children and Empress from Jah the Almighty.

Love and Teachings of Rastafari

  • About Leaders and lives of Rastafari  (Marcus Garvey, King Selassie I etc.)
  • Read the King James version bible to their children
  • The truth of Adam and Eve, Jah first created human
  • Jah the Almighty creator and what is pleasing and clean in his eyesmarcus garvey

Rastafari Men do not….

Every Rastafari man fulfills his duties to his family with love and understanding (overstanding). The Rastafari man is the backbone of the family providing love and support whenever possible, and as needed. Rastafari men, must not drink, smoke cigarettes, use foul language, or belittle his children, or comb the hair of his children. These things are considered sinful in the way of life of Rastafari.

Thank you for reading.

Jah Jah is the truth. Bless.

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.

Life as a Rasta Woman

How to be a Rastafari Empress


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.
