Who Is Afra? An Awakener of the Soul

Afra, having ascended many years ago, is the ascended master patron of Africa and represents unity and the true understanding of universal brotherhood. His teachings if embraced by the people of the earth would truly cause a spiritual awakening.

Once long ago, a golden-age civilization of the Blue and Violet Races lived in Africa. At a certain point, dark souls among the people sought to drive a wedge into the established culture of harmony. Peace was overturned and the stage was set for the downward spiraling of this civilization. The basic sanities and civilities of life were eventually lost as brother warred against brother.

Africa in violet flame heartFrom the realms of Spirit, a Great Soul saw the plight of the Blue and Violet Races and sought entrée into the earth in order to help. Cosmic councils governing the destinies of nations granted this compassionate individual the opportunity to embody on the continent of Africa to teach by example the way to dissolve conflict through the sacred fires of Brotherhood. He traveled extensively, filling the ethers everywhere with the memory-traces of Unity. He was the living spirit of brotherhood in embodiment at the time, descending from realms of Spirit to save Africa from self-destruction. His message of “we are brethren” hallowed the space through which he passed and charged the atoms of man and nature with an energy field that contributed to the spiritual awakening of all within the proximity of his divine aura.

Afra’s emanation of love is a universal solvent for all conflicts between peoples, organizations and nations, or any disturbances on the delicate web of life. Like the universal Tao, the Chi of Brotherhood flows through the ten thousand things.* Only harmony and unity can exist between people when Afra's presence is invoked, and his holy reverence for each soul is perceived, accepted and permitted to flow. There can be no duality, no “us versus them,” only the harmony of Afra’s Spirit of Brotherhood.

*"Ten thousand things", a concept from the Tao Te Ching by Lao Tzu, is a metaphor for infinity.

Brothers and Sisters of Afra


In April of 2005, the ascended master Afra spoke through the messenger, David Christopher Lewis, to a small group of devotees in Detroit regarding the possibility of resolving conflict—whether within a city or among nations—by embracing the spirit of brotherhood. His message also suggested that the people of the Blue and Violet Races (people with links to Africa) have special gifts to share with other races that will be invaluable for this resolution. The themes of Afra’s messages have always been to live and breathe in the light of brotherhood, and to love one another. He asks us, as followers of the ascended masters, to lead the way in spreading brotherhood throughout the world.

In October of 2006 during a pilgrimage to Luxor, Egypt, Hearts Center pilgrims heard Afra and other ascended masters calling for a more active effort to bring violet-fire prayers to the African continent. Afra and the masters told of the struggle of the people of this land. They requested that those who resonate with the souls in Africa come together and pledge to be the light—the violet fire—to heal this continent through their daily prayers. Records of human discord throughout Africa can be transmuted by those willing to commit themselves to coming together regularly for prayer to assist the masters in consuming these records.

Since that trip to Egypt, a group of ascended-master students have engaged in internet prayer vigils for the healing of Africa. Prayers are now being offered weekly to lift the people of Africa from a tumultuous path and to bring new possibilities to the continent. Through these vigils, we dedicate our energy, assisting the ascended masters and the angels in the elevation of Africa to a continent of only light, only the Spirit of Brotherhood.  

As we heal Africa, we heal the world! 

God bless you. Always and only Victory!  —The Brothers & Sisters of Afra

You Have the Authority to Act as a Portion of Me

Devotee #1: Sometimes I wonder how much of what we're doing is ... how effective it is, is the question I am asking. I have seen things happening in the Sudan over the last three or four weeks, and it seems to be moving in the direction of a resolution. I just would like to know if the work that is being done is a lever that, through a small effort, is actually producing astronomical results.

Afra: Do you believe that the words you utter in prayer are real and true, Raphael? 

Devotee #1: Yes. Yes.

Afra:  Then why is there any doubt as to the efficacy of your word? Your belief that every utterance, every heartfelt call is acted upon by us is paramount for the work that you are all about. As you have set your intention in this work, so it manifests in reality and outpictures according to the cycles that we are allowed by cosmic law to be fulfilled in your plane of existence. Each one of you is a part of the whole of my own beingness within the totality of all my brothers and sisters. And as cells within my being you have the authority to act as a portion of me in your world. Belief, faith, trust and intention as qualities of the blue ray will focus the light of your prayers and calls more powerfully than you can even imagine, blessed ones. Therefore believe that every word, every visualization, every thoughtform is manifest, and it will be so as God allows and as I have said the cycles turn.  

Devotee #1: Thank you, beloved Afra.

Afra: You're welcome.

Devotee #2:  I have a question that has to do with the request for us to place our feet upon Africa each year. There was a hope we could do it around the European pilgrimage, but right now that doesn't seem feasible, not that the end of the year is not possible still. How can we continue to expunge these records, transmute these records whether we are on the continent or not. Is there anything else that we could be doing to improve the situation?

Afra:  The light and sound ray is an effective instrument and tool for your use as you may have heard this morning from my friend, Jesus. If you cannot physically place your feet upon the soil of the continent, then you may use every available means of visualization, even using Google Earth to zero in on those specific areas that are the greatest challenge to the light.
As you focus the lens specifically on these targeted areas, which many of you know are the main problems, then we can wing our way with our legions at your call to erase tens of thousands of years of records of darkness. The momentum you are building in your ongoing prayer work together is stupendous and must not be downplayed or in any way diminished by any of you. For the spiral that is being built, week after week, allows a greater influx of light into these situations, blessed hearts. It is as a cosmic dynamo that you are building—coils of fiery blue-violet light that first break up the concrete of the darkness of past ages, shattering outworn matrices and evil. And then instantly the violet flame angels come in to sweep and clean up that which has been broken free.
            This is the action you may see occurring. And thus your calls to the blue fire energies first and then the violet light and then in an alternating action is paramount in your work. The entrenched tribal rivalries and warfare must come to a halt before the greatest inroads of light through education, through building a superstructure for future economic stability can occur. You are laying the spiritual foundation deep within the earth as grids and forcefields that then those who do the physical work later would build upon.
            Do you see how important each of you is when you come and participate in these weekly sessions? For the geometrization of the light through each one of your hearts, one with mine, is essential to this alchemy. And nary a one should miss these sessions except for very important personal emergencies or intense family requirements. Blessed ones, setting aside time with me to be with you allows me to fully employ the allness of my cosmic consciousness not only for you personally but for the entire continent of Africa and her people. This is our Brotherhood's work and each of you was chosen and each of you has chosen to be a major part of it. You knew before you embodied that you would have access to my heart in this era, and I give it freely, my friends.

Devotee #3: Beloved Afra, this is _______. Thanks you so very much, beloved Afra, for giving of yourself to each of us. The question that I have is that I am somewhat excited of going to Africa. And especially when I heard the dictation by the beloved Goddess of Light here in our Freedom Conference; and she said that if we come to Madagascar, there will be many treats that she is preparing for us. Does this mean, beloved Afra, that Madagascar is the country we should be traveling to for our first choice?

Afra: I have many conversations with the Goddess of Light, and together we have planned long into your future for the evolution of souls of many root races. It is essential that at least three of you, before you take your leave of this physical body, step foot upon the great island of Madagascar. When and how this may occur is up to you to determine, to plan, to finance for. But I honor the words of the blessed goddess. For unless her light, anchored above that sacred island, was there, there would be truly greater darkness upon the entire continent, for she focuses and raises forth the frequencies of her cosmic crown as a goddess of pure light on behalf of all of the evolutions upon Africa. And if you could truly see what has been mitigated through her personal efforts, you would, as some of you say, be flabbergasted as to that which has been consumed of darkness.
            Some have called my continent "The Dark Continent." It may not always be so, blessed ones. But it will take many more hearts like yours to make it "The Light Continent." Will you have it with the Goddess of Light and me?  [The Brothers and Sisters of Afra respond, "Yes!"]
Then by your proclamation, by your intention, and by your striving and work it may be so. But it needs be that some come physically because I have invested my very consciousness within your cells. Do you know it? ["Yes!"] You are part of me and always will be, and I will always be part of you. Where you walk, I walk. Where you sing and laugh and dance, I also commune with you in the cosmic dance of Shiva and of dances that you know not of that someday I would teach you.

David: He is showing me a dance that is beyond the highest martial art form, combined with the movement of a type of dance [that is performed] in India, combined with certain movements from various tribes in Africa but employing the secret rays and precipitating in each movement an action of interstellar radiance that creates wave patterns deep into the Earth and is like the impressing of his beingneess through his feet as he dances into the earth. He encourages each and every one of us to dance daily, even for three to five minutes in whatever movement you are attuned to—maybe not reggae but something that you love where you can let loose with no one watching but Afra. [Laughter. Someone comments,"Beautiful."] And he says he loves it when you give both his decrees. And when you say, "His rhythm guides my soul"—when you say those words, he dances with your soul. He was the original “Soul Train” man. [Laughter.]  He is so funny. He is just cracking up. [David chuckles as he observes Afra's joy.] What a sense of humor.

            Well, I think we have had twenty minutes, and I feel him fading away. But hold on a sec. Afra, please, can we have one more question? Afra has to go. But Saint Germain will answer one more question. Somebody, preferably somebody who has not asked a question yet. Saint Germain has been here the whole time, by the way, and he is smiling, too. It's actually—I'm being corrected. It's only been 18 minutes and 47 seconds, according to when I turned on my device. Anybody have a question for Saint Germain?

Devotee #3: Beloved, I would like to ask a question. I know of the dispensation of the multiplication of decrees by the power of the ten-thousand-by-ten-thousand. I heard that that came from beloved Lord Maitreya. But the power of the ten-million-by-the-ten-million, can you tell where that came from because I did not hear of that one?

David: I am getting a big question mark. So I do not know whether it was a mistake—it was put in that one decree, right? He is saying to ask _______ where it came from because [he] is the one who did that decree. He's not answering it. He wants a question more related to what is going on right now. In other words, if _____ has that information, ____ will answer it. .

Devotee #2: Just wondering if there is any ... a big thing for us is outreaching to more people that support the effort, focusing on issues on Africa. So is there any other, anything else that we should be doing with outreach efforts?

Saint Germain: First you must create a home where friends can come. This home may not be physical as a house but may be a sacred space or place, a website incorporating many of the concepts within the booklet but also your personal stories, your friendships, your sojourns, your challenges. You can link to many other sites that have information upon the news from Africa. You can create a chat room, a blog, whereby your musings are shared in a very heartfelt manner such that others will pick up on the motives of your desire to aid life, your reverence for life at all levels and how essential this work is of brotherhood-building. Even the prayers that you have developed, being very beautiful, could be set to music.
            You can even have your own CD of Afra music. This will take a concerted effort of creativity. But unless there is something to draw people to, whereof they can partake on a regular basis, why would they come back week after week to commune with you, blessed hearts? Not all are fiery spirits who like to pray as you do all the time. But information, news, meditation and friendly interchanges heart to heart are what may keep your brothers and sisters connected. Provide this portal of connectivity between many hearts, and then many more hearts will naturally come into our brotherhood. 

David: And Saint Germain says this is absolutely essential for the entire Hearts Center. This is what we are all about. This is the very nature of our movement. And we have not fully manifested it within The Hearts Center yet. But because you, as Brothers and Sisters of Afra, have almost a greater consciousness in a focus on and an attainment in soul brotherhood, you can be the exponents of this matrix. You can be the wayshowers. You can be the ones who help to really bring it about in a very beautiful way because at times others haven't caught on to aspects of brotherhood that are inherent in your soul at a deep level. So as we have this connectivity, it is crucial that it be shared and your victories, as this team who comes together every week, be shared in the regular Hearts Center newsletter.

Devotee #2: Thank you so much, David.

Devotee #1: Thank you, beloved bother David.

David: I felt a tremendous release of light especially when Afra spoke. His love for each of you is just .... The love I felt pouring through my heart for each one of you is just stupendous. I can't even tell you how much he loves each one of you.

A Gift from the Master Afra

This Ascension Light meditation is a gift from the heart of Master Afra with Saint Germain. It was released through David Christopher Lewis, messenger for The Hearts Center, in 2012 before a gathering of heartfriends in Detroit. Now Master Afra, by the grace of God, with Saint Germain, sponsors the lowering of a replica of the Ascension Fire Chair into manifestation over you. Re-experience the bliss of this magnificent alchemy as often as you choose to enter into this divinely inspired meditation.

Sunday Evening Vigils

Join live heaftstreaming vigils for Africa with the Brothers and Sisters of Afra, Sundays from 2:00-4:00 p.m. Mountain Time. Tune in from The Hearts Center home page.

Through our vigils and our Afra webpage, we desire to share our passion with you for the healing of Africa. You, too, may join us in offering prayers and sending the violet light to Africa for the multiplication of the healing energies we will generate together.

You may visualize the entire continent of Africa or focus on a particular country. As you become familiar with the economy, political systems, environment, and challenges within each country, your prayers can become more specific. You may focus your prayers toward changes required on the physical plane and also on the mental, emotional, and etheric levels as well.
