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 Darshans with Brothers and Sisters of Afra
and Speaks on the 2019 Pilgrimage to Eastern Africa

Welcome, everyone. God bless you, all the brothers and sisters of Afra, for being here week after week. I'm so happy to be with you on his behalf to share some insights and then to answer some questions.

Afra today is placing his Presence over each of you, and he is focusing especially on Detroit, Baltimore, Saint Louis, Philadelphia, New York, Chicago, Phoenix, Los Angeles, Dallas, Houston and Atlanta, Georgia. And as he multiplies his consciousness through all of these major cities in the United States, there is an infusion of the light of truth today, because this is what he desires to manifest—the light of living truth.

Freedom requires truth to support it. And when truth is not promulgated or exposed and when it is not promoted throughout a nation and her people, the people are ignorant and they cannot be fully set free.

We know the scripture, “And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”1 What all people desire in their soul is freedom, and Afra says today that to have that freedom they must know the truth. And of course, there are many levels of truth. Through our dispensation we have progressive revelatory teachings, which is truth for today brought forth through the ascended masters so we can come up higher, make progress, fulfill our destiny and be free.

As Afra places his Presence over these cities and their peoples, it is to expose the truth. And it is to expose what is less than the truth that requires being exposed so that people can make right choices, because when they know the truth, then it is really up to them to choose the high road. And many, unfortunately, choose the low road because they have been programmed. They've been accosted by the media and by forces of darkness, which, through promoting a sense of injustice and other dynamics, keeps them bound to a system of thought, feeling and a lack of mindfulness that is very limiting.

One of the most important things for brothers and sisters of Afra throughout the world to have is education and to be fully apprised of the truth through that education and then, through higher mindfulness, make an impact and wield influence in the world to help all others of this culture worldwide. Those who have risen to the highest levels of givingness through having had higher education can often serve. And through their divine service, they can help those who are less fortunate, those who are born under circumstances that in many ways limit them—although the free will of the individual is always supreme and anyone can rise out of poverty and mediocrity through their own divine efforts to master themselves and make that impact.

So the light of living truth, through the lens of Afra's awareness of all brothers and sisters of Afra worldwide, goes forth today in this cycle of Virgo, which will be wrapping up in about a week, and then we'll be moving into the cycle of Libra, when things become more physical. Afra cautions us that when we move from Virgo to Libra, it can be a time of trouble, when, through a perversion of the line of God-justice, people feel that they must lash out. And if they haven't mastered the line of justice, then the unreality that they embrace almost impels them to do something more physical in the physical quadrant, and they devolve into an unreal state of beingness, which is very dangerous for their souls and can be hard on society.

So in this cycle of justice, through the light of living truth all that is misunderstood in terms of what justice is can be dissolved so that people see clearly. They can make right choices and determine, through a higher level of seeing and beingness, to make amends for their own untoward actions and words. And through their atonement, they can then, having embraced forgiveness for themselves and others and the world, make very ardent progress on the path.

As this light of truth goes forth, those who can embrace it through their third eye and through higher mindfulness will be enlightened and illumined by that truth. Sometimes they may be shocked out of a mentality or a paradigm that is limiting through a circumstance, a situation or a communication with someone that impels them to realize that God is in charge and that when we look to God for solutions rather than rely on human solutions, we walk the high road. We walk the road of light, of the Christ, of the Buddha, with Afra himself, and with the divine Mothers East and West.

This light of truth is something that Afra encourages the brothers and sisters of Afra in the group to focus on through the entire cycle, from now all the way through the cycle of God-vision, which is Scorpio. Because when we begin to broadcast that emerald light of truth even before the cycle of Scorpio, it can set the stage for greater revelations, greater opportunities for us to present the teachings through the visuals that we have created, through our website, through YouTube, videos, et cetera. And people can come to our fount of living truth to be edified by it, to be blessed by it, to be encouraged by it and to then make right choices and make progress.

So all of you who participate regularly are supercharged with Afra's energy today, and this frequency of living truth that he wields is very ancient and very powerful.

What we didn't know about Afra and his role in that ancient civilization is that as an exponent of freedom, of truth and of the culture of oneness, he, as a great teacher—and we've heard that he was a representative of the Holy Spirit—was able to bring amazing understanding to many, many hearts and minds. Now, Jesus said that he would send the Comforter to bring all things to our remembrance.2 One of the responsibilities of the Comforter, which is an office of the Holy Spirit, is to edify by reminding people of the truth and the true teachings. And this is part of what Afra did in that embodiment on Africa.

As a representative of the Holy Spirit, he was both a master walking the Earth and a great, great teacher—an exponent of truth. Not all listened to that truth, just as people do not listen to the truth today. They desire their own truth, the truth of what they feel is real. And yet we cannot actually enter into true reality just through feeling. We have to master our emotions in the emotional quadrant to get to that line of God-reality. And people who don't master their emotions through God-harmony and supply, God-gratitude and God-justice cannot fully absorb the light of God-reality on the nine o'clock line. Mastering the emotional plane is part and parcel of being able to see clearly, to know reality and to then have our victory.

Question:  Should we change the matrix in any way and do we use enough violet flame?

David:  It is always wonderful to shift and change and transmute and not always do the same thing. Whenever I lead a service, there's always something new, different and hopefully very inspiring and powerful. Whoever the leaders are have the right to be creative, to attune to Afra's heart and the heart of the Holy Spirit and to present a service that is very meaningful for that moment, based on what's transpiring on the Earth and what requires action.

The violet light is always fantastic to invoke. In an hour-and-a-half service, let's say, a half hour of violet flame would be absolutely wonderful. And this, of course, can include songs, decrees, et cetera. A half hour of violet flame is really essential to do the work that Afra desires on the Earth. Now, you can augment it a little bit with the emerald light for this next cycle— through the end of Virgo, all the way through Libra and all the way through Scorpio, as we heard today. I think he was kind of giving a key as to what you can do for the next few months.

Question:  What do you recommend that our group focus on for the next twelve months?

David:  This is really interesting. I'm seeing Chicago, Chicago, Chicago. We have our Chicago event coming up this coming week, all the way through next Sunday. Obviously that's the immediate focus. Now, why is he saying Chicago three times? As we know, there's a lot of crime there, and Chicago requires, as the heart chakra, an infusion of Afra's light, as well as Saint Germain's. So what Afra is saying is to see both Saint Germain and him walking through the streets of Chicago—the areas that have more of a preponderance of crime—and to see them taking command of all the situations.

And crime is not just the crime that we hear of involving murders and gang activity. It's also Mafia-type crime, political crime at the highest levels, manipulation of the money through the government of Chicago, which has typically been corrupt for fifty, sixty years—ever since I was a young boy and Richard Daly (the first Richard Daly) was mayor. There was a lot of corruption, and it seems like it hasn't really abated too much for these fifty, sixty years. We have to get a handle on this, because when the corruption exists at the highest levels of the government through both the elected individuals and the appointees, it makes it difficult to have a balanced economy and a crimeless society and to have harmony and peace.

The corruption breeds all manner of problems. So we look at the highest levels of government, all the way down through the local governments of the individual suburbs and cities, and we pour the light of cosmic emerald vision and divine justice and freedom into every place in the Chicago area to really help the city—a very important city, the third largest in the United States after New York and Los Angeles.

The heart chakra—and we are The Hearts Center—requires a lot of help right now. So Afra is saying to focus on Chicago. And just as our Saturday evening freedom services are focused on Chicago, when the Afra group focuses and really goes after it, this will support the work of the Great White Brotherhood to curtail much darkness, forestall a lot of crime and murders and to resurrect that city. Afra says, “Pray for the resurrection of Chicago and give the resurrection prayers. Chicago requires resurrection.”

Question:  How do we, as your chelas, expand the reach of your call for brotherhood?

David:  Give these prayers; sing the songs. When you wake up in the morning, meditate with Afra, just as others meditate with Morya or Saint Germain. Meditate on this concept of brother/sisterhood and see how every day you can somehow magnify it and express it. So first we magnify it through our hearts and through our souls, through soulfulness, and then we find a means of sharing brother/sisterhood with someone, a real person on Earth, by sharing appreciation, love, a smile, an act of kindness.

If we all take responsibility for doing this each day with a physical act, all of these physical acts build the culture of brother/sisterhood through our Hearts Center, through the individual disciples, or chelas. And as we all magnify it and expand it through what we individually manifest in our lives, it breeds that antahkarana and mandala of brother/sisterhood—showing someone that you care, calling someone who's ill, showing up for someone who can use a helping hand. Anticipate the needs of your holy brothers and sisters. Sometimes the masters will have me call someone out of the blue, someone I haven't talked with in a long time, just to check in. So check in with those whom you have not heard from in a while, those whom you revere and love but who haven't shown up, gone to an event, a Meru class. Maybe they don't fully know what's going on in our movement at this point. You can share some of your insights from what the masters have shared or from your own meditation and attunement. Afra says: “Show that you care. Dare to show that you care, and the atmosphere will be fair.”

Question:  We were requested to come to East Africa. What are your thoughts about traveling to Africa?

David:  There are some dangerous areas. We have been told recently that we can consider going there in 2019, and Afra says to prepare for it. We're going to Egypt in 2020. If we do our work and there's harmony amongst all the disciples of Afra—both in the United States and South Africa, throughout Africa and throughout the world—we can begin to plan. We have to plan at least a year or a year-and-a-half in advance for this. So let's say we decide to go at an optimal time in 2019. And I don't know when that is, but you can determine that—maybe September, maybe a different time of year. Work back eighteen months and begin planning. Discuss it in your Afra group. You can take a half hour of the hour-and-a-half to work together to make plans for future events, and this is a good thing. Then give people assignments. Someone can research a little bit about the three nations. Maybe there's a travel agent that we could enlist to help us plan appropriately.

So these three nations—Tanzania, Kenya and Ethiopia—are important for us to send our love and our light to. You can focus on them a little bit, Afra says, even though you are focusing on Chicago for the next twelve months. You can also focus somewhat on these three nations. Study them, get to know their culture and really find out what the issues are. And begin to project yourself as if you are there now, helping the people. And project the energy of your causal body there as you go to sleep at night and support the work of the lightbearers in these nations so that when we actually end up going there, we will find some beautiful hearts who resonate with our message and who will be able to carry on our work after we leave.

This is one concern. We have to find the souls who resonate with the work of the Universal White Brotherhood. And if that word white is a problem, we can just say the ascended masters. We don't have to say Great White Brotherhood.

Question:  Beloved Afra, what is the most urgent event or widespread attitude in Africa that requires our attention and prayers so that Africa may be raised up?

David:  Corruption in many nations is, of course, a problem, and that corruption is at the highest levels. Part of it is greed. Part of it is pilfering. It's part of certain nations' cultures. It's so inbred that it's difficult for people to get out of that. Bribery is the order of the day, and you almost have to bribe someone to get certain things done.

So let us have a picture of that red circle with the word bribery with a line through it, corruption with a line through it. And then simultaneously, have the opposite. What are the opposites of these? Honesty. So we have a ruby circle with honesty without a line through it, and it's blazing fire. Then we have a circle with integrity, blazing fire. Brother/sisterhood, blazing fire. Love, blazing fire. Use all of the virtues that you are aware of and project them into every man, woman and child.

The other day we had this way of praying Kuthumi's prayer as Saint Francis, where we went into our higher consciousness. And because we are one with every man, woman and child, we saw the prayer being projected through the heart of every man, woman and child on Earth. So have pictures of disciples in these three nations and throughout Africa, people of all nations, from some of the slide shows that you've already created in the past, and see your love, your light one with theirs, blazing through their hearts, their souls, their beings. Project yourself. Practice the alchemy of bilocation, or what the masters have called omnipresence through the agency of the Holy Spirit.

The part of you that is permanent in God is already omnipresent in a sense, because at a higher level of awareness, we are one with every other sentient being in the universe. So we tap into the Holy Spirit's omnipresence and we see ourselves there, one with these beautiful, beautiful people—these innocent, holy, pure people, like we saw in Ghana and elsewhere—and we ray forth our love and light through them. And this is an alchemy of harmony, beauty and love, and it becomes a great, great alchemy.

Question:  Beloved Afra, we finished reading your book Living a Soulful Life at the end of our services. Do you have a recommendation for another book to read? Would it be advantageous for us to fill the time with your HeartStreams or more prayers?

David:  I think what I just shared from the Master is what you can fill that time with. Even three to five minutes of deep meditation on Africa, all the nations or peoples and sending them love is a powerful activity and one that will bring great, great results over time. If you do this every week for five to ten minutes at the end of your service and collectively send tremendous rays and waves of love, integrity, honesty, truth, et cetera, the results will be tremendous. So that is Afra's recommendation.

            At the beginning, Afra placed his energy over all of you, and it's still there. He blesses you now with a certain sign, a certain engram of light. The soul chakra has how many petals? Six. And the base chakra has four petals. So through the six-pointed star of Afra's being, through the path of the sixth ray of service and ministration, and through the light of the seventh ray of violet, Afra is blessing you again, charging you with light and anointing you in spiritual fire so that you can represent Afra's people, brothers and sisters of Afra around the world, and serve them, love them, cherish them, tend to them and just be there for them spiritually.

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.
