Previously, we explored the meaning of Wellness. Today, we begin to explore the meaning of REGGAE WELLNESS. Reggae Wellness is a movement that once activated, has the potential to NEVER END. How can REGGAE WELLNESS be activated? One person at a time, one family at a time, one neighborhood at a time, one community at a time, one nation at a a time, then the entire planet can achieve REGGAE WELLNESS.
Letz begin with some good ole’ definition…..
Kasha Rootz Band is a great place to start!
Here is a definition of Reggae from Bob Marley…
“Well reggae music is a music created by Rasta people. And it carry force of people riddum. Ya know it’s a riddum of people workin, people moving; ya know.” -Bob MarleyThe reggae song One Love by Bob Marley was named the “Song of the Millennium” by Time magazine in 2000.(from the urbandictionary.com)
2. WELLNESS: that was covered in a previous post:
“What is Wellness and How Do You Get There?”
3. Financial Freedom
This is probably the most difficult for us to achieve as a Nation of Blackness, a Nation of Human Beings, One Nation of Indigenous Peoples, because these skills and practices were ripped from our bloodline during the period of enslavement. When families were torn apart, all the wealth and wisdom that had been passed down for generations was taken away from us. Our knowledge, our wealth, our abundance, our relationship with Nature, our culture, our oral traditions, our values, our ways of living, OUR WAYS OF BEING, were all taken away. Our spirits and souls were trapped inside of an oppressive society, where even today, IT IS DANGEROUS TO BE BLACK. Our very Blackness is a desired commodity: the thieves want our Blackness, yet they want US dead.
THERE IS A GIFT IN EVERY ADVERSITY, even if we do not see it right away, it is there, and IT IS FILLED WITH ABUNDANCE, WAITING FOR US TO CLAIM IT.
Everything happens for a reason, and now it is our time to take back what was wrongfully taken. Including the GOLD they stole: wealth and wisdom, our culture.
OUR FREEDOM TO BE WHO AND WHAT WE ARE.
from wikipedia: “Financial independence is generally used to describe the state of having sufficient personal wealth to live, without having to work actively for basic necessities. For financially independent people, their assets generate income that is greater than their expenses.“
from Rich Dad: “What is financial freedom?
Financial freedom is much more than having money. It’s the freedom to be who you really are and do what you really want in life. And many of us, especially women, lose site of this by putting others first and playing many different roles such as parent, spouse, employee, friend, and more.
If you want to be financially-free, you need to become a different person than you are today and let go of whatever has held you back in the past. It’s a process of growth, improvement and gaining spiritual and emotional strength to become the most powerful, happy, and successful “you” possible. That is the true reward of financial freedom.”
WE WOULD HAVE TO LET GO OF THE SLAVE MENTALITY. WE WOULD HAVE TO LET GO OF EVERYTHING THAT WAS FORCED UPON US, OR TAUGHT TO US BY THE OPPRESSORS. Every habit, tendency, impulse, or desire that does not lead our nation back to freedom, must be abandoned. ESPECIALLY OUR PURCHASES AND BUYING DECISIONS. Many people are not ready to do this unfortunately, but this is what it will take to achieve Reggae Wellness.
In fact, we would have to return to the ORIGINAL concept of CURRENCY: the currency is running through OUR veins right now! Our blood, our life force energy, this is our TRUE WEALTH! Our RICH heritage and legacy! THAT is the real power. In fact, WALL STREET in USA? That was where the slaves were being sold after they landed on stolen land. The white people did not like seeing this, so they built a wall around the STOCK YARD!!! WE WERE THE STOCK!!! WE were being kept in STOCKADES. THE ORIGINAL STOCK MARKET!!! They even had money printed with our images for slave trade!!! Making it look like
“we wuz happy to be slaves, picking cotton and harvesting sugar cane….yes, massa”
Confederate Currency: The Color of Money investigates the importance of slavery in the economy of the South. Artist John W. Jones has researched and documented over 126 images of slavery that were depicted on Confederate and Southern States money.
WATCH THE SLIDE SHOW!
We were considered to be more valuable than owning land!!! A man that owned 500 acres of land and 2 slaves was considered to be less rich than a man with 25 slaves and 2 acres. Think about it, nothing in colonial Americas or colonial anyplace would have happened if our ancestors had not been there to build it!
So you can see, the first step towards financial freedom is not about getting alot of cash, or even making great investments. IT IS ABOUT CHANGING THE MINDSET! Raising the Frequency, the Vibration. Once we have the right mindset, Financial Freedom, that is our HUMAN birthright, will flow to us naturally, effortlessly. Gracefully. With Ease.
In the near future, we will be offering programs specifically designed to raise the Wealth Frequency, to address and manifest the Financial Freedom of Our Nation.
REGGAE WELLNESS IS ON THE MOVE! One Love! UPFUL!!! RastaFari LIVES in Us, Through Us and Moves Us. Towards Higher Heights.
