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

The Continuous Stream of Connection between Your Heart and Soul

            Your soul may dance with your heart as a partner. Each has steps to follow, and the interweaving of their essence, soulfulness and heart-centeredness creates a blend that is sublime. The depth of understanding within the soul is enfired by the intimate feeling nature of the heart to produce an even greater connection with Spirit that allows your intuition to shine and manifest in a continuous stream of God-beingness.
            Your soul is the receptacle for your intuitive faculties. Your heart is the employer that directs the intuition and the sensings of your soul into their proper course. Your soul enriches your life; your heart guides your spirit through your personal experience. The soul accommodates the spirit when directed from above. The heart allows the very feeling nature of God and the movement of desire to flower within you.
            Have you ever felt your soul smiling at you? Your heart is in a continuous mode of smiling, and yet often the soul can be seen within individuals as being more morose when it is clouded over by ignorance of its purpose—to allow feeling from the solar plexus to be anchored, rooted within the laboratory of the self through experience. The soul is the laboratory of your identity, where all creativity is born and your essences flourish. Yes, your mind ideates and your eyes co-create, and yet the soul provides the resource through which this creativity has a place to perform. Therefore, your soul is a stage upon which your heart dances, your mind is free, and your eyes catch the glimpses of the Divine One that move you ever higher in spirals of light in your freedom to be who you are.
            The soul that is unshackled in its freedom knows eternality. Others may imprison your body, yet they may never ensnare your soul when you are in love with God. Virtue descends into the soul as a seed of God-identity seeking a birthplace, the soil-soul wherein that seed may be prompted to bloom and grow into your tree of all manner of fruits of the Spirit. Your soul affixed between the Mother and the Son, therefore, is a catalyst for all growth that you experience. And just as the Mother nurtures you from within her foundation of light and her fountain rises, it washes your soul clean so that you may know your inner purity and be guided by her divine impulses, her wisdom, her truth.
            Just as the soul, your soul, is the accumulation of all your choices, experimentation and freewill experiences, so you may wrap your soul in light to urge it onward to its destiny, to its victory. For, as the pearl rises to the top of the ocean to be free, to be plucked by the Father, so, when you are complete, you, O soul, ascend and are received within the hands of the Almighty as a blessing to the universe, as a boon to the cosmos. Your soul is your glory; and as your essence it must be polished daily by higher God-desires moving through you whereby you shine, you serve and, through selfless giving, you know.
            The Oversoul is full of the largesse of God to magnetize you unto your perfection. It receives your soul in intimate moments of communion to bless you, charge you and prepare you for your eternal banquet in light. Your daily communion betwixt your heart and soul is essential for your self-realization of the higher siddhis; and divine magic manifests through a soul that is sure of itself, having prepared, loved and mastered the six petals of the interwoven triangles of Alpha and Omega within. As God's power, wisdom and love coalesce within your heart as you affix your own triangle of self-mastery there with the Divine, the signature of your soul ascends and the heart-soul connection becomes strong, validating God within you every moment, energizing the monad who you are with beingness and presence. Your soul houses your truth, for in polarity with your vision center the truth blazes, flashes forth betwixt your mind and soul. And the balancing factor of this dynamic is a heart pure and undefiled in its attention upon divine love.
            I free your soul. I free your heart this night to know your Selfhood anew. Yet this freedom comes with a price—the full givingness of yourself to God, honoring the Almighty, obeying the inner dictates inspired from within, being mindful of that which is reality and letting go of all fantasy outside of the circle of oneness in God's light. You each have the soul stuff and the vitamins of Spirit to win all the way. Listen. Contemplate. Muse on this continuous stream of connection between your heart and soul, and realize your full potential as God-beings.
            This is my message, this is my personal poem to you, each one. I love you. I lift you. And in our togetherness and levity, light proceeds before us as God directs our course Home. Let us walk upon the sacred pathway hand in hand as holy brothers and sisters; for blessed ones, we are one. 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.

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.
