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

Beloved Afra Darshan

Light and Darkness on the African Continent

 So, thank you so much. You did a few decrees. But, the masters wanted to give you an opportunity to ask questions of Afra. So those of you either on the phone or on the broadcast can ask a question. This should be a question hopefully that will bring spiritual edification, something about Africa, something about our joint mission on behalf of Afra. So if you have something to ask or to request of the master, please do so now. The dial-in number is on the broadcast page for those of you who may want to call in with a question if you're only listening on the broadcast. Ok, go ahead.

Question: Yes, thank you very much. Beloved Afra, I want to say welcome to you. Thank you for being with us. Beloved Afra, the question that I have is, I personally am looking forward to coming to Africa this year, by God's grace that the Brothers and Sisters of Afra, can come to Africa and we're thinking of coming to South Africa. Beloved Afra, things are at this moment in our lives, in our situations, the different situations of the Brothers and Sisters of Afra, do you see the possibility of us making it this year to South Africa?

Afra: Anything is possible with God! The choice is yours where you spend your money. The request has been made. How you fulfill it is a matter of planning, practicality and vision. So when you ask, do I see whether this is possible, of course I see the possibility! The question is, do you see the reality of the possibility manifest? As an ascended master, I have made possibilities realities in my life. And as you prepare questions, consider the words of the questions, because in the question itself, there is the potential answer. The question may have been, “O Master, what specific purpose for our upcoming trip that we envision as manifest in South Africa would you see us accomplishing?”
And to that question, which could be a corollary to your question, I say to see the Mother light arising from the base to the crown of the entire continent. See the white light of the ascension that many of you have received in your initiation from Serapis in Egypt manifesting fully throughout your being. And you as an electrode of light can focus this light of the ascension for all peoples upon the continent. As you employ the energies of the ascension currents, directed specifically through your vision to every nation then the alchemy of love may fully manifest through your awareness, one with God's.
What alchemy are you working together to precipitate the funds such that three or more may accompany the messenger and go? Have you considered pooling your resources such that each year three different individuals plus a core group of those who will support the messenger go, such that over a period of time you all can go, blessed hearts? Individually you may not have all the resources to accomplish this. But together, through sacrifice, surrender, selflessness and great service, you may. Have you begun a plan? And do you call forth that plan in your prayer sessions religiously, regularly, without fail? This is the drive that it will take to cut through the opposition to our requests to set your feet upon the African soil every year if possible. But if this is impossible, then every second or third year.
            Watch the words that you speak. And empower those that you do speak with cosmic intent, and your plans may become reality sooner than you think. Thank you.

Participant who asked question: Thank you, Beloved Afra.

Afra: You're welcome.

David: Do we have another question, locally or …?

Question: Beloved Afra, I felt the desire to put together a book of the African national horoscopes, the fifty-plus horoscopes of Africa. I do not think there is a book out that has focused on those specific horoscopes, and I found that most of the African nations that achieved independence in early to mid-50s and the 60s all had their national identities symbolized by the sun near or in the fourth sector of the Mother, the Cancer sector. And as I mused on this, I wondered how much of this can be of benefit to those who would read and look at these charts in order to be able to make calls on the astrology of all of the African nations. And because of this emphasis of the midnight hour and the fourth sector of these national horoscopes, it would seem to me that the Divine Mother and those qualities of the Mother, utilized in decree and prayer work by us, could be of great benefit to those African countries.
And I wanted to offer you a draft of this book, African National Horoscopes, which contains fifty-plus horoscopes of all of the African countries with some initial introductions. I want to add to it to make it a more complete work. And I would ask for your assistance in helping me put together this work in such a way that it will be a great benefit to those who use it as a tool for their prayer work and decree work.

Afra: I receive this labor of love with great God-gratitude for your focus, your determination and the love of your heart and your soul, which I feel embedded deep within the words and charts in this sacred document. It is a landmark for the Brotherhood and one which each of you, upon its completion, may purchase, read and then place upon your altar with crystals, preferably amethyst that you place on the various charts of the countries as you flip the pages, dedicating one country per month or week. And I would suggest one per week that you concentrate on such that during the course of a year, you can name and focus on every country within the continent. 
            If you begin this in earnest no later than summer solstice, the time of the Mother, as you know, then you can create through the alchemy of your joint prayer work a tremendous upsurge in light upon the continent. I would suggest giving the prayer, the newer prayer to the cosmic clock and then having Raphael lead you in naming the astrological signs, the progressions for the natal chart of that country and visualizing light going into the very core of that nation and all of her peoples through the grid that you see before you in these charts whereby you dissolve the negative karma and bring forth the positive as you visualize the grids and patterns of the interconnectedness of the interaction of the planets juxtaposed above each country.
Those of you who are the new magi in this sense of being cosmic astrologers with a higher knowledge of this science are creating the etheric blueprint for the victory of each nation and her peoples through this alchemical work. There is no limitation in what you can accomplish through this, through your visualization, blessed ones. What I also suggest is that a second edition, after this first is published, would include visuals from the various nations that you may secure from the internet or from other sources to give a visual context also besides the chart itself—that you have a picture of the country, its geography before each chart, that at the beginning you add a picture of the entire continent showing all the nations. You could even have a larger fold-out map of the entire continent that would give people a larger visual to utilize in their prayer work.
This is the work of Brothers and Sisters of Afra who understand their own office as spiritual priests and priestesses in the Order of Melchizedek, Afra and Lord Zadkiel. Giving your violet fire, prayers and mantras and songs and utilizing this new tool so lovingly prepared will actually allow the ascended hosts to drive away ancient forces of darkness that have assailed the peoples, that has manifested in what you have seen outpictured as tribal warfare, genocide, great murder and mayhem and raping and pillaging and a lack of reverence for life brother to brother. As important as naming the negative portents of these astrological configurations is naming the positive portents of the trines and other configurations that can bring about a golden-crystal age civilization upon the continent, drawing forth ancient patterns from previous golden age civilizations to be reenacted, reenergized, revivified and anchored within the nations.
            You have seen the work of Oprah Winfrey in opening schools and attempting to lay a foundation for greater education and understanding. This is key. For as you know, education is absolutely essential for the raising of consciousness of peoples. For if men and women and children knew better, they would do better. And thus you can aid them to do better through better education, training, trade schools, universities. But it all begins at the foundational level of the holy family, the home and the culture embedded within the home environment, the love of father and mother for their children.
            This is a great first step. And because of this great work that has been accomplished, I, Afra, anoint you, beloved Raphael Fitch, as a priest of the sacred fire on behalf of all of the peoples of my continent. I extend my heart and fire and love to you as I also give you now a replica of my own shepherd's crook—gold, solid gold—as a talisman of sacred fire by which you, with your beloved, who stands with you also, may utilize in your sacred service in utilizing this tool. Those listening to this broadcast who desire in any way to support this endeavor may encourage and aid this brother of light financially and in other ways to complete the fullness of this project. For, blessed ones, it will be opposed by all the forces of hell, even that which you have seen transpire this day in opposition to my coming, this anointing and this gift from the heart of this blessed one and his beloved.
            Take to heart the words of the master, whom you know so well. And through a rededication of your heart to holy purpose in this life, move forward, move forward, move forward the plans of the Brotherhood, such that we will see the victory manifest fully upon African soil. You see the upcoming election in America with the possibility of one of my own being elected and what this may mean for Africa as well as for the world and for America. Though some may decry this one, I say that it is because of your very prayer vigils that this one has come to the fore within this nation. And it may be so through your continuing vigils and prayers that a change and a shift may occur whereby greater God Light may manifest within the nations of the I AM race everywhere upon Earth.
            Thus we see great possibilities manifest by your word, your dedication, your focus and your soulful love. 
            I, Afra, now place my hand upon the crown of the beloved who has taken the brunt of opposition to my coming this night and release sacred fire, healing currents and streams to dissolve the energy vortex that she has borne for ye all. Burn through now and release by the power of Afra this substance of darkness that has beset her! Burn through now! Bind the fallen ones who have point counterpoint sought to destroy the very work at hand! Burn through now! Blaze forth the light! Burn through now! Blaze forth the light! Burn through now! Blaze forth the light!
            Let the souls of my people awake! Awake, I say! Awake, souls of Brothers and Sisters of Afra and know the true reality of your Godhood, who you are as a freeborn soul! No one can take your freedom from you! No one can steal that which is real within you! No one can prevail against the victory of your love, your light, your mission! For I, Afra, declare it! And you may also  declare it by saying, I accept!

All: I accept!

Afra: I believe!

All: I believe!

Afra: I AM!

All: I am!

Afra: Amen.

All: Amen.

Afra: Thank you, blessed hearts.

David: Yes. Yes, __________.

Question: My question is this. [inaudible] I am wondering whether there is a specific gem stone that we can either wear or place upon the altar so that during our alchemical time with you we can use it as a focus to direct towards the continent of Africa, and even during invocation that we can use it to harness the light and send it [inaudible] the continent of Africa.

Afra: Yes, there is. I suggest that you find a source for a violet amethyst crystal heart, all of the same size that you, each one, have as a focus, identical in size. This amethyst heart crystal, once found, may be blessed by me by a simple invocation such as follows, which you may transcribe and then repeat together:

            On behalf of Afra, we charge his light into this crystal heart, this crystal amethyst heart now. This heart unites us all as heartfriends and servitors of light on behalf of our brothers and sisters everywhere upon Earth, and especially upon the African continent for the spiritual alchemy that we are about in these prayer vigils Sunday evenings and whenever we gather. O sacred fire of Afra, blaze forth now and charge this amethyst with your very soul light and the fire of your being. We accept it manifest by our prayer uttered together in harmony. Amen.

            Once these amethyst hearts are distributed, then utilize them as talismans during your vigils and prayers together. They will maintain the focus of my soul and heart for you so long as you are true to your word and maintain harmony in your being, blessed ones. I thank you, ____________.

Question: Beloved Afra, can you speak to all of the activity we see going on on the continent right now, with this Darfur, Kenya and other parts of Africa where we see some attention? We also see the President of the United States recently visiting several countries. Could you just speak to what you see is going on right now for us?

Afra:  The creation of a free society in the United States of America, envisioned by Saint Germain and his Guru and manifest by your Founding Fathers, was a key to the establishing of an example, a matrix for all nations upon Earth to follow. And you have seen, as has been mentioned, the liberation of nations within the last century to have their freedom from oppression from forces without. And yet you have not seen fully the development of these nations, their resources, because of ignorance and because of manipulation and the controlling of the funds from those resources by its corrupt leaders, business people, et cetera.
            Where there have been Sons and Daughters of God at the helm of these nations, there has been progress. Where there has been military takeover simply to grab power with its concurrent abundance for personal gain, you have seen the degradation of these nations, their peoples whereby there is not the proper distribution of light energy through the resources to create a superstructure for the society to develop through education, through better land planning and through the establishing of institutions that safeguard the freedoms of their people.
            We suggest a basic underlying foundation of principles and values among all the nations and peoples upon the African continent that all the nations shall abide by in their governing institutions, their constitutions, the laws of their land. For when these are the law of the land and the people hold their leaders to these laws, then hopefully corruption and decadence may not take hold. You have seen the intervention of the United Nations' forces in various nations, and yet they are not often empowered to take specific action but simply are more observers rather than those who can make a difference although even their presence at times does prevent greater bloodshed. For the free nations on this continent that have stable and qualified leadership, it would do them well to communicate together to create almost a United Nations of Africa and peacekeeping forces from among its own peoples to go to the aid of the simple people that often take the brunt of the killing and genocides that have occurred.
            For if you only rely on forces outside of your own peoples, they will not fully understand and come to your aid in times of peril and darkness. Once there is a certain level of security through freedom, through honor and trust, then you can have greater work to create this superstructure, the architecture of the country that is so needed, blessed ones. But when there is infighting among peoples of various tribes or religions whereby there is simply the slaying of one brother against another brother and there is mass chaos and revenge and retaliation, the cycle is perpetuated. And [it] is very difficult to create a culture of stability and true freedom.
            Though the problems are great, the way out is through education. And thus we champion projects such as Oprah Winfrey's and others, utilizing the resources of non-profit groups, institutions and even nations. But these resources must be channeled and funneled in a way such that they are monitored and cannot be corrupted or siphoned off by the corrupt ones. Thus there should be greater institutions created that monitor the freedoms of peoples, the progress they are making in using the resources sent to them by other nations before those resources are recommitted year after year by their congresses, blessed ones.
This is a tall order and yet one which is imperative to come forth. Some of you can put in your calls what you see as the necessity for monitoring of elections, of resources, et cetera such that freedom may fully take hold in these nations. Look to what is at the very core of corrupt societies and leadership. Go after the root of the problem. Higher ethics must be taught even in the elementary schools.
            Watch Red China and its influence upon the African soil. Make calls on the perversion of true Islam and all inroads it is making in manipulating the youth through the madrassas and the fanatical ones who impress upon the youth their vision of the takeover of societies, city by city and nation by nation in their perversion of jihad.
            Visualize the Prince of Peace reigning over every land, and see the light of freedom through your calls to the violet flame and violet laser light, piercing the darkness and consuming the records of war, bloodshed, murder, rape, pillage, death and hell, AIDS and all other problems that you know so much of. Bring awareness through presence in all that you see, visualize and do for your brothers and sisters. And make those pilgrimages a reality!
            This is my message this night. I am grateful to each and every one of you who has participated in the vigils and been true to the words that you speak in your prayers. Keep on keeping on. For you are making inroads. And these will eventually play out as opportunity for cosmic justice to manifest upon the African continent and every nation.
            Thank you, blessed hearts. God bless you and goodnight.

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.
