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

Afra's Assignment to the Brothers and Sisters of Afra
to Complete His Book in 2013

            In the name of the mighty I AM Presence, in the name of the glorious great God Self, the Solar Presence of each one, I ray forth light into Africa, into every nation upon our continent, into every home and hamlet and hut in this hour. The light of freedom, the light of brotherhood, the light of God consciousness manifests now within every heart and being, within the threefold flame. And those who are receptive now receive ministration from my heart and from the members of the African Council of the Universal Great White Brotherhood. For we raise a chalice of sacred fire this night and we ignite hearts, we ignite minds, we ignite souls with that fire of freedom! Saint Germain has called it forth. And I partake in this vigil with you in order to shine forth and to share the light of freedom, abundance and victory for every man, woman and child of all races, of all nations. And I accelerate and focus that light on behalf of all true Afrans in this hour.
            Now, blessed ones, I share with you from what some would term the situation room of the African Council, which this night exists in the etheric plane within the retreat of the Elohim Arcturus and Victoria over Luanda, Angola. We project—through the lens of our awareness, one with God—consciousness upon all people within every nation, and we accelerate the light of brotherhood and see its effects upon their souls at a subtle level of their being.
            Through an array precipitated by the mind of God, we also see the plans the dark ones manifest whereby they attempt to manipulate the return of karma of peoples, of tribes and of specific individuals to ignite wars, troubles, disasters, division and all manner of dark deeds, murders and mayhem. Point counterpoint, we send rays of light into the very matrices of these projections of darkness to consume them before they precipitate in manifestation upon Earth in the world of form.
            And through our consciousness focused as one, we hold a very high level of frequencies within our collective mind in order to abide within the sacred space of Spirit whereby the flame of divine love will accelerate within the hearts of all. And very conscious souls—within whom we have embedded our plan, our directives and our light so that they may bring forth what we have seeded within them—now manifest all manner of beautiful renderings in their service to life.
            You see, dearest ones, in one sense that which we do at a certain level of our existence on a continual basis is not much different than what you do collectively in your vigils and prayer sessions daily or on these Sunday evenings together.1 For when you pool your minds and lock your hearts in a mastermind-heart alliance of love-wisdom, there is the same dynamic. And we also interweave our consciousness through yours to augment that which you are able to do in these sessions through your own attainment and your own collective awareness. And with the energy of your sponsoring masters, in some cases our own beings, focused through your higher minds, there is a glorious God-manifestation of light and the raying forth of these divine frequencies in order to accomplish God's ends.
            Now, just as there is this situation room for the Universal Great White Brotherhood over the African continent, the same is true for every continent. For example, over North America within the Royal Teton Retreat there is a room so consecrated and dedicated to this purpose. And the same is true over South America within the God and Goddess Meru's retreat, soon to be overseen by Lanello and Clare de Lis; over Europe in Apollo and Lumina's retreat; over Asia in Cyclopea's retreat; and over all of the Pacific, including the continent of Australia and all islands and peoples thereabouts, in Surya's focus of light within Cuzco's retreat over Viti Levu, where an amazing cosmic interplay of light is manifest for the holding of the balance for that vast region and for the entire Earth.
            Yes, dearest ones, we have our sacred work just as you do. And I am here to tell you that when you work as one and you accelerate to completion that which we have already called forth, we are then able to receive further dispensations of light to accommodate the Brotherhood's work within Africa and in other regions. Therefore it is essential that you consider—working backwards from the end point of its physical manifestation—the publication of a volume on divine brotherhood and the consciousness of pure love for and on behalf of the sons and daughters and the brothers and sisters of Afra throughout the Earth. I ask that this tome of light be printed within the year 2013 by winter solstice, and that you will pull out all the stops in order to make it happen for me and for the light of freedom and brotherhood itself.
            When you believe and you perceive with pure intention, you can achieve anything, dearest ones, that you set your mind and heart to. It is all a matter of focus, love and constancy. No more excuses to keep you from your active employment of true brother-sisterhood in this endeavor. No more wasting of time or of resources.
            What I do see and accept on your behalf now is the employment of certain angels of publishing, those who will minister within your midst to assist you in every aspect of this work; those who work to compile all that is necessary for the complete work; those who work with artisans who can bring forth a lovely arrangement of the text with images, thoughtforms and other sharings from your hearts; those who assiduously study the word and the vocabulary of light, the lexicon of the Brotherhood, and who through great articulation and understanding will assist in editing and arranging the words themselves so that they may fully capture all the light that we desire to release through those pages to those who will eventually read our words and feel the fire from our beings.
            Dearest ones, it will take great coordination and weekly work to accomplish this great goal, my desire. I reveal to you just how important it is, for I have already gone to cosmic councils to seek, in advance, dispensations to be released once you have completed this work. I was told that they would release only what they were allowed by even higher councils, based on just how much work has already been accomplished upon Earth by heartfriends within this movement. Therefore you see that I am in one sense bound by their directives, and therefore I implore you, dearest hearts, to consider the import of this assignment and to do all that is required to make it happen.
            I can see the effects in the future on many hearts upon their opening the pages of this book and feeling the light of the Spirit flowing and washing over the mind, heart and soul as they imbibe the sacred words therein. And I pray and hope that each one of you also understands just how great and holy is this endeavor.
            This tome of light is currently not within the business plan of the greater Hearts Center movement. It is an assignment to be accomplished by those of you who have been praying and working together on these Sunday nights for many years now. Therefore, begin raising the funds and, as I have already said, work backwards from the point of the book's completion. Define clearly your strategy, your monthly and weekly goals. And conform to the law of love, wisdom and power as it manifests through your hearts, moving as one to see this project through to its glorious God-day and its anointing and revelation upon Earth.
            So, the first question you might ask: “O Afra, what should be within this tome of light?” Everything that has been released through me and upon the African continent as well as various words inspired upon you, the devotees of my heart.
             “What images, O Master, would you have?” What do you cherish? I ask. Visualize and see that which I have spoken of within my discourses and HeartStreams. What creative visualizations come forth unto you as you behold my words as living engrams of sacred fire within the air and within your minds? You may desire to hire one who can lovingly create many thoughtforms and images that will bring greater context and joy to this work of light. You may have images, as you are able to secure them, of the various masters whom you now call to, whether in color or black-and-white, and you can share something about their lives, their spirits, their work on behalf of the Lord God within any movement of truth and light, any church or sacred brother-sisterhood that exists or has existed in this age.
            Dearest ones, with God all things are possible.2 What may seem almost inconceivable is realizable in your realm, in physicality, when thought through consciously and acted upon with forethought and great intent. Just look at what you have already co-created within this movement of light! It is miraculous, dearest ones. And the facts and the proof and the fruits of your collective service are evident to those who simply desire to see for themselves and open to the realities of light and life itself in your midst.
            This is a project that all of you may own at some level. None are exempt from adding to or contributing unto it in some way great or small. And I assign David to touch base on a biweekly basis with those of you who are ready to move forward in this regard, to give guidance from my heart as required in order that there may be no missteps or time-wasters in its fulfillment.
            This is a year for the word to go forth through this movement of light, this year 2013 before you, dearest ones. And I take part in the alchemy of its publishing, giving my all unto you as you give your all unto me. Yes, that fiat “all for one and one for all”3 is key for you to say again and again when the forces of darkness and nihilism attempt to divide you in this sacred work. Realize that it will only be accomplished when you work as one. Do not think that only one or two or three will receive the glory for this work. It is a collective community effort, and it is one that will build community within your hearts and among your souls, far and wide. Through this tome I will draw, over time, hundreds into your movement who have a tie to my heart and to Saint Germain's heart. Therefore you can see the import as it exists already and why I am so adamant that it be fulfilled in this coming year.
            Ha! You have asked, “What is next, O Lord?” and I have revealed it. Ha! You thought there were other opportunities at hand. Here is the one and only goal that I see as absolutely essential to be accomplished next year, 2013. So put off any concern that a pilgrimage to eastern Africa is a possibility for next year (2013), as 2014 or beyond is acceptable for it to manifest—after you have first completed this seminal work of light.
            I have conveyed through the messenger unto _____ and _____ a few changes to the matrix for your giving of the ritual Wash Africa in Golden Light and Violet Light.4 That CD, although it has already seen manifestation within this year, must also come forth early in 2013 in revised form. It is a leftover assignment from this year, and that is why I do not consider it to be part of that one and only focus for next year, you see.
            I thank all those who have worked on your behalf to upgrade the Website and the page dedicated to my heart.5 There is much more that you will see upon this page in the future. My one primary recommendation is that it contain more visual elements to inspire people to see and know what is at play within our hearts. Why, you could have images of all of you praying together in community, images from your pilgrimages, from the photographs and even videos that you have taken. Where are these in your archives?
            All is possible to manifest through those whose hearts are dedicated and consecrated to our collective cause of light, you see. Therefore, pool your resources in this regard and send them to the heartfriend in the heartland whose job it is to upgrade the Website itself. And she, with her own creative fire and élan, will bring the fruits of your vision into play.
            This is my message for tonight to you, each one. My love is within you. My fire ignites you again and again, daily if you decide to have me in your homes and in your hearts.
            I am Afra. I am brotherhood. I am love in action through service, ministration and peace—that which passes all understanding6—to the hearts and minds of those who accept God within and know love as real. Thank you. God bless 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.

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.
