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

                                                    A Child Has Been Born This Day in Africa
                                                      Who Embodies the Essence of Freedom

Gracious Hearts Who Would Know God within Your Flesh and Blood,
             You have heard within this discourse a certain history.¹ And within the story an ancient mystery that is yet to be fulfilled. For the destiny of Africa is dependent upon those who have vowed to the living God that they will stand for truth, they will stand for brotherhood, that they will stand for the freedom of the souls of all. You are these souls, blessed ones. And I honor the integrity which you embody within your flesh and blood, whereby the essence of the Sun Presence of your true beingness shines forth and emanates the living reality of this soulfulness to all life.
            On this my Ascension Day I come and I increase the light within those who have fulfilled various assignments on behalf of the people of Africa. And though I do not in this hour give you more than you can handle, I ask you yet to come up higher in the sense of your own Self worth in God to embody more of the freedom flame and of these soulful qualities of your Higher Self such that the divine plan of every nation and of every soul may be fulfilled.
            It takes a certain quota of conscious ones who have set forth in their mind's eye, through a great determination to fulfill the will, wisdom and love of God in their life, that which may progress so that the divine plan may ensue. You have met that quota and therefore you have seen the effects of your continuous calls and the stream of the energy of the violet laser light that has done its perfect work with pinpoint accuracy, I must say,  to accomplish the ends that you have seen.
            There is a stirring in the ethers and some of you have caught wind of that which is even now beginning to be felt by many more souls upon Earth as the shift whereby every man, woman and child may know their Source, may feel the current of God-power directly from their Presence and may then direct—by the rays of light from their hearts through conscious application—those divine qualities and essences that will literally catapult this entire planet into a new spiritual orbit of light.
            You are holding that spiritual balance for my homeland, and for that I am grateful. And I extend the warmth of my heart to you, each one. I feel every positive impulse, every conscious word, every simple statement of love that you deliver to the cosmos in ways great and small. And I take these, I multiply them and I return them to your hearts such that you also may increase that light for the victory of the soul of the planet herself. The soul of the earth is there vibrating in the etheric octaves over Luanda, Angola. It is pulsing out the violet light in ever-increasing radiant spirals and spherical emanations of freedom, liberty and those means whereby enlightenment may come by conscious choice.
            I see a new world dawning, an age of perfection, whereby everyone may live free in the sure knowledge that their souls are valued, that their lives have meaning and that nothing can take from them this inherent God-essence that is their right to experience and to know. The founding fathers of this nation saw the possibilities for freedom at all levels of society. And yet even in that hour there was a dichotomy within some of their personal lives whereby they accommodated slavery. No more, blessed ones! You must not allow within your being an ounce or a shred of that which the fallen ones would send your way. For thereby you can attract it unto yourself and it can do great harm to your spirit. Therefore, liberate yourself from every vestige of your Self-denial of who you are as God beings in this world. It is your domain to prove the law of being here. Yes, the angels live and move and have their essence in higher vibratory spheres. But you were sent to Earth to embody the light through your flesh and blood for all to see and know that God lives through you.
            I have proven the law of being through humility and through complete identification with the Creator, acceptance of that holy will and the free-will experience of life in this domain. You too, blessed hearts, through your free choice may live as God-free beings, embodying the highest essence of your Selfhood and thereby prov[ing] the reality of soulful living where you are. I champion you as future ascended masters now. Rise, in your God-essence now, blessed ones, and chant with me the sacred OM for the fulfillment of God's mission and Word upon this earth. [Afra chants the OM for ten seconds.] And now, since you are embodied in the West, speak and dance as we chant the holy Amen. [Pilgrims sing A-men with Afra fifteen times].
            There is a child who has been born this day in the land of Africa who embodies the essence of freedom. Guard this child with your prayers, your love. For the destiny of my continent depends upon this one and everyone who upon earth would realize their highest soul faculties and the freedom to be love. I thank 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.
