It is not just about loving reggae music, wearing dreadlocks, and wearing green, gold and red—but rather a function of the heart.

Bob Marley sang, “emancipate yourselves from mental slavery; none but ourselves can free our minds.” Throughout Marley’s life he promoted peace and freedom with his music and became an advocate and symbol for the Rastafarian faith.

At 15-years-old, Sistar Julia’s life changed while attending a Bob Marley and The Wailers’ concert. Mesmerized by the music and culture of Marley, Sistar Julia began her spiritual journey that night. She began traveling the world in search of satisfying her soul. The people and experiences she encountered opened her eyes to new cultures, specifically the language of music. Her journey of self-discovery led to following in the footsteps of Marley as an advocate for the Rastafarian faith.

“Rasta is not a fashion but a faith and way of life,” Sistar Julia said. “It is not just about loving reggae music, wearing dreadlocks, and wearing green, gold and red—but rather a function of the heart.”

In Sistar Julia’s new book, “Breath to Consciousness,” she shares her journey of seeking consciousness, freedom of expression and insight on Rastafarian culture and beliefs.
