Spirituality Around the World: Jamaica

Jamica_Spirituality

Jamaica has a long and unique spiritual history.

The history of Jamaican spirituality explained by Bernard Jankee.

The kumina was a musical and religious form originating with the Congo people. The dance features lots of hip movement, the use of flat-footed sliding of the feet and breaks. Drums and singing are included in the ceremony. These breaks in the dancing are the result of the musical instruments, which give clues as to how to move your body. These sessions are not intended for entertainment.

Soon, the revival bands began forming in Jamaica. These groups came from different parts of the world – even as far out as Germany. Ettu, another spiritual group, came to Jamaica with indentured servants.

In the 1930s, Rastafarianism began. Rastafarian draws heavily on other religious practices and has become more and more modern.

Symbols

Water is almost a universal symbol across all types of spirituality in Jamaica. Christian churches use wine and white rum is used in kumina, ettu and revival ceremonies.

These symbols are starting to become intertwined – a result of globalization. Rastafarians have begun dancing kumina.

Spiritual possession is something that occurs across both the kumina and ettu ceremonies. During these ceremonies, people will feel as though a spirit enters them and takes control of their body.

Blood sacrifices are part of some rituals, with goats and other animals being slaughtered. These animals were then skinned and eaten.

Christmas Disturbances Law

Jankee told an anecdote about the 1841 Christmas Disturbances Law. The law banned the playing of musical instruments during the season and resulted in some children getting arrested. Riots followed the arrests, led by the mothers of the children involved.

The Immeasurable Energy of Chi

Ball of Chi

The idea of Chi has been around in Eastern thought for thousands of years.

A fascinating example of a type of unmeasurable energy is Chi.    Believed to be life force or the energy flow that exists between everyone and everything, Chi has been a respected idea that has existed in the eastern world for ages.

The biggest argument made against the existence of Chi is that it is nearly unmeasurable in a scientific or physical sense, and since Chi is a very personal experience it is almost unexplainable to people who have not felt it for themselves. However, it is a phenomenon that is experienced by thousands. Experienced martial artists often speak of chi and manipulating this energy to tactfully maneuver, strike and block their way through a fight, with a hopefully worthy opponent. When sparring in certain styles it is possible to feel ones chi against your own like learning a new side to a personality. Chi is believed to be cultivated from a person’s chakras which are energy fields that exist in our bodies. Running along the spine and in the palms, chakras have been felt by millions, and have been known about and studied for thousands of years.

Anyone can learn to feel and become aware of these areas and exercise them much like a muscle. Chi also travels through our bodies meridians, which are a system of pressure points that run throughout our whole body. People have long been self healing, practicing acupressure and acupuncture through the stimulation of meridians. Exercising these points properly promotes circulation and can heal certain ailments and injuries. The phenomenon of Chi is a mysterious one and imaginably an exciting journey of discoveries for anyone to venture towards.
