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

Raising Souls in the Spirit of Brotherhood

Brothers and Sisters of the Fire of God,
            I come to raise your souls in the spirit of brotherhood, for in this spirit I live, I love, I move and I enfire souls. I am Afra, and for a holy purpose I am here this day, first and foremost to ensoul this new representation of me, aptly prepared by a servant-son of God whose vision is true, whose clarity of consciousness has outpictured that which I desired for you to have, blessed ones, on your altars, in your homes, even in your cars or in your pockets.
            Brotherhood is the need of the hour for all of mankind. And those who would discern with me the way out of the dilemma of the warring factions that continue to be at odds with each other must know the light within each heart. The essential nature of God as fire within the heart is the key for every brother and sister to understand, such that there is acceptance, there is communication, there is oneness.
            And unless and until all can come to the table and discern in a circle of oneness that which God desires to fulfill through the variegated manifestations of His awareness through His sons and daughters, then there can be no true and lasting peace upon Earth. But when the Spirit of the Lord dwells bodily within some-the first fruits who raise their souls in sacred fire-then all may know that light.
            Thus you have been called to be witnesses for Afra and for the Brotherhood of light in this great confraternity that is a-building in this hour. And as a witness for me and for Saint Germain and for the masters of the seventh age and flame, you, enfired in your souls by freedom's light, may truly light many hearts, beloved ones.
            If you consider the revolution of consciousness that was initiated by souls such as Martin Luther King, whereby an entire generation received the upsurge of the desire to live as free, sentient beings, and of others who stood, even amidst the great darkness that assailed their civilizations, to uphold that fire-come what may, then you will understand what is required in the here and now for you, as a witness within this movement of light that we have initiated, to begin once more to fan as that fire that will light many.
            What one can do, all can do. Thus we have plucked souls from here and there across this and other nations into a new soup, spiced quite beautifully, I must add, by your individuality, your own representation of the nobleness of the Spirit. And from this new broth we will feed the souls entrusted to us, both within America and within all nations, as it is distributed, cup by cup, bowl by bowl, through your hearts.
            The principles of freedom are written in your soul. And you, each one, must discern how they can be applied in your life, in your work. When you understand the nature of freedom as a fire, then you can give unto all who discern its innate ability to change that which is unreal unto that which is immortal within all; giving it liberally, letting it shine, letting it flow. And thus the victory will be had because some have understood the equation of what is required in terms of sacrifice and givingness to make it a reality upon earth.
            I see the shining lights here and in every city and hamlet and home where sons and daughters, brothers and sisters of light dwell. And no matter what outer religious persuasion they have embraced in this life, yet I see burning within the soul the essential nature of God that connects all hearts, all souls in this great antahkarana of the Brotherhood, the Sisterhood that we share.
            For lack of oneness, mankind has divested itself of the God-fire and forgotten its true nature. But in accepting that one spirit within all-each and every one, each one is empowered by the totality of the synergy of the oneness of all. Thus, you tap into the soul of your brother or sister by embracing each one's uniqueness in the crystallization of that God-flame manifest as the diversity of creativity outpictured through that one. Employ all the gifts that you have been given and that you have developed in this and past lives and you will see the great tapestry that we together weave, outpictured in beauty, in perfection in all its glory.
            Glory halleluiah! The Lord God reigns! Glory halleluiah! He sings within all souls who understand and look to Him for guidance, for love, for light. Glory halleluiah! Glory, glory, glory be thine, O souls, O souls of light. O my people, O my holy ones East and West who would discern with me the light of the soul.
            With Saint Germain's permission I now increase the action of the violet fire within Africa in this hour and draw again a ring of fire around that continent. And for thirty-three days I walk with him, speaking to the hearts and souls of our people. Yes, our people, for it was he, the master, an emperor of that Golden Age civilization in the Sahara who we looked to even then for guidance.
            We call souls here and there to understand what it will take to bring about peace. I hurl peace packets of freedom into the nations of Africa! And the seeds of freedom, spiritual freedom, will grow, as they are implanted this day through many hearts who are receptive to the master of the seventh age, his consort, Portia, and me.
            I now also ensoul the image prepared. And I will be tangibly where those of you who secure this image in any form or size place it. As you look upon my face you will see in my eyes a reflection of the souls of all brothers and sisters of Afra in all nations and those who have ever lived upon that continent. This, blessed ones, means that most of humanity have at one time or another lived there. And so you will see in my eyes the souls of many.
            Through your devotion to the fire, each of these may be free one day. Begin with yourself, and let loose the fires of love within you. Break open the vessel so that the new wine may be given to each one. I seal you in this new wine of the spirit that I bear. Drink ye, while I am drinking thee, O soul, and know eternal oneness in the brotherhood of our love. I thank you.

Messenger comments: To put this dictation in context, we have on the altar a beautiful image of Afra prepared by a particular artist who desires to remain anonymous at this point. The image itself is approximately fourteen inches wide by about twenty to twenty-two inches high, framed with about a three inch gold gilded moulding We showed this briefly to those of you who were at the Washington, D.C. event, but we now have the final original prepared. I will be discussing with the artist very shortly how we can make copies of this image available to you in various sizes and, as the master has said, he will place his presence wherever it is, on our altars, in our homes, in our cars or in our pockets.

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.
