Jah Love

Can a white person be a Rastafari?

Yes a white person can be a Rastafari! It’s not so much about the colour of the person’s skin color, it is about the heart of the person. Jah sees and knows all things. He knows if we are good, or if we allow ourselves to be instruments of Satan. White people are also chosen as Rastafari, in the same way that black Rasta is chosen. White Rasta does not have different practices than black Rasta. Everything is the same. White Rasta, praises King Selassie I, They eat Ital Rasta food, they listen to Rasta Reggae music, they burn Nag Champa incense…everything is the same! Jah does not look at the person’s skin colour when he chooses his messengers, he looks at the heart.

About me the Author

I, Empress Yuajah wrote ‘How to Become a Rasta’ back in 2011. As a born Rastafari, all of what I know has been written on my heart, and when I shared Rastafari in that book, it was written from the perspective of that inscription.  I tried to include facts about Rastafari, for those who seek this type of guidance, in ‘White Rastafari.’ Rastafari is all-encompassing, spiritual, factual, historical etc. I hope this book answers some of the questions you have concerning Rastafari and provides a guide for you on how to follow the Rastafari livity.

Jah Bless, More Love.

Rastafari.

 

White Rastafari are special!

alborosie3Did you know that to black Rastafari people, white Rastafari people are special? Heres why. White people are not expected to have dreadlocks, so when they do, black Rasta find it very appealing. We are intrigued that even though to wear dreadlocks is not the way of your ancestors. Yet, still you choose to wear the hair in this fashion? Black Rasta may want to learn more about the way you live. As white Rastafari, you can expect that many black Rasta will approach you for conversation, and friendship, and treat as special and unique.

Jah is Boundless

I had one Jamaican guy, tell me I cannot be Rastafari because I am not a born Jamaican. What he does not know is that he (in his limited thinking) is putting boundaries on the powers of Jah. I understood that he truly does not understand the power or the magnitude of The Most High. Jah is boundless, limitless, All knowing, and all-powerful. After hearing some of my music that Jah helped me to create – he recanted saying, ‘only a Jamaican can do that!’

White Rastafari are born every day

Could you imagine if Jah made all nations in a way that one cannot be like the other, and this spiritual way of life is designated for only those people with such and such a skin colour? That sound like ‘paint by numbers.’ spirituality is not like that. With the variations of all nations, naturally are going to be remnants, here and there. Spiritual, cultural, and DNA. That is normal. With that being said, white Rastafari are born every day and, The Most High rejoices.

What is White Rastafari?

I designed this book to, strengthen your mind as white Rasta, with spiritual truth, and guide you to live a life that is clean and pure, so that you may enter Holy Mount Zion. There is no such thing as White Rastafari per say, only Rastafari taught with the White Rasta in mind.

I want to embrace this way of life, but I have questions

Many white persons who wish to embrace Rastafari have questions, and rightfully so. This book was designed to answer those questions, so that you may feel informed before embracing this way of life. Let’s look at some common questions concerning Rastafari.

  • Why do Rasta say that King Selassie I is God?
  • Why is it mostly black people who embrace this way of life?
  • What are the beliefs and principles of the Rastafari Peoples?
  • How do I know Rastafari is Right for me?

 

How do I know Rastafari is right for me?White_Rastafari_Cover_for_Kindle

If you have friends who are Rastafari, this helps. If you have a significant other who is a Rasta, this helps too. The truth is, most Rasta, are Rastafari  all on their very own. Both my parents are Christian. And my siblings are both Christian as well. Here I am 34 years of age and a natty dreadlocks Empress. I don’t need anybody’s approval. The Almighty sees and knows my heart, and I live my life to please him alone.

Rastafari is a about entering Holy Mount Zion. We adhere to a strict code for living and eating to keep us clean in mind, body, and spirit. If you believe there is a higher power and that everybody…”  Read the rest of  “White Rastafari” the eBook. Buy it  on jamaicanrastafarianlove.com

Step #15 – Become an expert on Ethiopian History

Rastas know the history of Ethiopia as it relates to King Selassie I and African people in general. A lot can be found out about Africa by reading non main stream books. In Rastafari the most popular Rasta Bible is called The Kebra Negast. It tells the story of King Selassie I Royal History dating back to King Solomon.

Step #16 – Eat Ital Rasta Food

Rasta people eat Ital Food. Rasta believe Ital food is good for the holy temple of Jah, and that Ital food makes you strong physically and spiritually. No meat for Rasta. Read this page about the Ital food laws here.

Step #17 – Meditate Daily

Rastafari meditation is a big part of Rastafari spirituality. Many people do not know how much we believe in meditation. Meditation is how we connect with Jah, for wisdom, inspiration, and spiritual elevation. Check out my book titled Rasta Meditation Handbook to learn more.

Step #18 – “Live in Love!”

Rasta believe love makes many things better in life and on the journey.

Step #19 – Listen to Rasta Reggae Music

Deep Rastafari only listen to Rastafari Reggae Music, such as Bob Marley, Dennis Brown, Gregory Isaacs, Sizzla, Alborosie etc. Rasta Reggae music helps Rasta to replenish his spiritual balance, and bring feelings of happiness and connection to ancestors.

Step #20 – Stay Humble…black-jesus21-240x300

Rasta know it is important to stay humble on the journey. We know Jah is watching all that we say and do. It is the job of Rastafari to make Jah proud as his humble servants and messengers of Jah Rastafari faith, love and unity.

Blessed Love.
