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 Spirit of Freedom and Brotherhood Must Be Delivered to Africa

Each of You Can Be an Ambassador of Light

Question:  Beloved Afra, could you tell us of your life on the African continent before your ascension—where you went, how the people behaved, something of the golden age that existed on that continent? Thank you.

Afra:  Five hundred thousand years ago the continent looked different than it is today. Golden-age civilizations had come, and yet during that time there was the manipulation of the gene pool of mankind by aliens. I embodied in order to save the people from the machinations of those whose only goal was to use the races of mankind for their own ignoble purposes. You have heard of the Sumerians and of those who came in their spacecraft, embodying within mankind by intermixing their alien DNA with those among mankind—fallen angels, Nephilim, as they have been termed.
            Thus I traveled extensively throughout the southern portion of Africa as it now exists, but went to many lands. The continent was not primarily jungle, and in the north desert at that time it was a beautiful land. Yet the primary problem was a lack of harmony, communication and a spirit of brotherhood that might have allowed the various city-states, as you would call them, to work in consonance with each other to counteract the work of those who came to Earth to suppress mankind and use the gene pool as I have described.
            In the process of attempting to unite the people, I was outspoken in my resolve that they should lay down their arms, which in those days involved certain instruments of war that were very destructive. I met with many of the heads of these city-states, their government and religious leaders, as an ambassador of light, in much the same way that Saint Germain did in Europe when he was the Wonderman of Europe. I was fluent in the art of tact and diplomacy and made great headway in many areas. Yet there were some who were the dark ones who knew exactly what my plan was and who, point/counterpoint, attempted to counteract the work that I had done.
            In a very similar experience to what Jesus underwent, I was crucified in the press of the day through innuendo, slander and lies and eventually imprisoned and killed. This did not stop me, for my soul took flight and I reembodied and worked assiduously in subsequent generations, embodying until the point of my ascension.
            Even in that time, Saint Germain was active as a noble guardian of the Spirit and was one with whom I communicated on inner levels. The understanding that we had at that time of both the blue and the violet rays was augmented by his great God-power and determination to liberate the souls of mankind in every quarter of the Earth.
            It is, blessed ones, important, that you understand how each of you can be an ambassador of light and can, through your willingness to undergo the initiations of advanced placement, as it were, on a higher path allow yourself to be utilized by the ascended hosts. Yes, you can be the instrument for the delivery of great God-power to the Earth through your dynamic prayers and especially through the use of the violet light and that laser action and frequency of acceleration that can pinpoint those points of darkness in every nation when you understand the challenges of the various nations and peoples. And you can see how the forces of heaven, in a ring of fire, can literally change the aura of a city or a nation when there is the steely determination and resolve of the souls of the conscious ones to liberate souls from the past and from the spirit of anti-brotherhood that has crept in among many nations, peoples and tribes.                

           As you maintain harmony within your own being day by day, focusing the light of your Presence in your work and your service, a new spirit of brotherhood will emerge, and already has in many quarters, whereby people no longer see themselves as separate or distinct based on tribe or nation, but see each other as holy brothers and sisters with a common goal for the God-good of all mankind, of all cultures.
            The progress seen in the United States of America through the mission of Martin Luther King and others who brought civil rights to the fore has now outpictured in greater freedom among the African-American people. Yet this same spirit of freedom and brotherhood must be delivered to the continent of Africa as a whole through many noble hearts focused toward that one goal of unification, of liberation and of brotherhood.
            Each pilgrimage that you take whereby you focus the light in one or more specific nations gives you the opportunity, as you place your feet upon the soil of that continent, to be anchor points for the soul elevation of many peoples. As you see yourselves as priests and priestesses, as the spiritual leaders, in a sense, the avant-garde of the new way of soul freedom, many more will feel that God-power welling up from within their souls. And as you are able to utilize the media to get across your message and to contact key individuals who are open to the message of this great confraternity of light, you will clear the way for the Aquarian love-fires of victory to manifest nation by nation, people by people; and a new spirit of oneness will blaze forth through your hearts, connected with your God.
            The language does not matter, for the music of the heart and the science of the Word will sing through you; and the oneness of purpose will truly glorify the one God, who is the Source of all—the one God who would unify the various races and tribes of mankind. The one God, by whatever name he is called, looks upon all equally as sons and daughters and would have you know the light, the love, the respect and the buoyancy of joy of this sacred brotherhood of light.
            O holy brothers and sisters, it matters not so much where I walked and what I did five hundred thousand, seventy thousand, and thirty-six thousand years ago, when I took my ascension on November first, according to your calendar. What matters is when you walk in the light, when you radiate the fire of beingness and how you practice the law of Solar beingness, of presence, laying a foundation for thousands and even millions of souls who are temporarily lost in unconsciousness to eventually rise in this new awareness of holy brotherhood.
            How will you be the instrument for the Lord to unite peoples in every nation? That is for each of you to answer. It is for you to understand your holy purpose in the here and now and, with great God-determination, to be a beacon of hope to mankind, like those who have come to the fore and those who are stepping to the fore, even in America, to proclaim this new hope and new options for unity.
            You must see yourselves truly as the God-men and -women that you are, ennobled in God's eyes with a mantle of light and a radiance of fire within you. This will make the difference day by day in whatever alchemy you are engaged in, in whatever sphere of influence in the world where you bring your heart to bear, one with mine. It is through little acts of kindness and the generosity of the spirit that you enflame the hearts of all holy brothers and sisters to know the great God-flame of their Solar Source, their Higher Self, their God Presence. It is through simple acts of kindness, grace, humility and service that you bring the light of Afra in a tangible way to mankind.
            It is truly in service and in the laying down of your life, time and time again, by bowing to the light of the Christ within others that they will see this opportunity for self-transcendence and that their lives will now have meaning—being honest in the new integrity of the spirit, being true to the inner path and the voice of divine reason within and being fulfilled in a mission of light that sings through their voice, through their mind and through their heart to the one and to the many.
            Therefore, blessed ones, though you have many questions of the past, I bring you to the Now of the very present reality of your own opportunity for greater beingness and presence, and I open a door to the future and the possibilities for greater unity among all of my peoples worldwide. And I say to the very souls of those who are spread across the Earth, unite as one under the banner of unity and of the one God—I AM THAT I AM, Yahweh, Allah, Jehovah, Nuk Pu Nuk—and live within his sacred gaze as holy brothers and sisters. I thank you.

Question:  Master Afra, I was wondering whether your twin flame is in physical embodiment or whether she, like yourself, is also ascended so that we may also call to her for support, for blessings, for, particularly, our pilgrimage to South Africa toward the end of this year.

Afra:  I would not reveal the totality of the alchemy of my better half, as some would say, but you may refer to her simply as Gloria. For in the glory of her being I live and move and have my being, for she does glorify God in her essence and core. She does sing of the Divine in the very movement of her Spirit. She does grasp in her mind the immediacy of the goal day by day and work in a steadfast action to bring the truth of the Word to many throughout the world, flying here and there.
And even in her gentle mien and demeanor and voice, she is a comfort to life.
            Therefore, blessed ones, the question I pose to you is, what of your other half, as your twin flame, have you incorporated into your heart, your life, your work that will glorify God where you are? What of the beauty of the soul to whom you are wed in spirit, even now if you choose to accept that divine radiance, will you honor as the very Father-Mother God through greater beingness, through mercy, compassion and kindness in order to bring something of that selfsame spirit of peace and brotherhood to a world? You may know who your twin flame is, but the question is, what are you doing about it moment by moment in applying the principles of Alpha and Omega, of father, mother, brother, sister and of God beingness in your life, through presence, to assist and heal the Earth?
            From the ascended state I can do much, and yet I am limited by mankind's free will to act only when called upon or when souls call to God for aid and assistance. As you make of yourself a vessel of light, calling upon the Lord day and night, even silently within your heart, I am there and the light of my twin flame is there with you. This remember, this attend to, this become; for as you call forth my light, I magnetize the light of your own Higher Self to you in greater measures. I augment and complete the light of your being with the light of your twin flame by the magnet of my heart and the fire of my compassion for mankind, for their freedom and liberty.
            Blessed hearts, we are one. Remember, we are brothers and sisters, all of one God. I thank you.

Question:  Beloved Afra, as a group at the center in Detroit we are attempting to do outreach. We are wondering if you could tell us how we should go about contacting souls to bring them into our teaching center to be a part of the activity of light. I know you just explained to us about how we need to work on ourselves and to be that light. We're also holding events and giving lectures, and we're going out to the community. What are we to do with the souls that come into the center?

Afra:  Love them, appreciate them, listen to their needs. See how you can assist their souls, taking them from where they are in their own understanding and giving them simple keys rather than attempting to change them or to unite them so much with the understanding of this teaching and dispensation. It is important to serve the soul and to connect with the soul at a deep reverential level and to primarily listen to and be obedient to the inner voice that will speak through your heart to give them only what God would offer in that hour and not too much.
            The keys are within each heart. Your goal and job is to simply provide a turning of that key to unlock within the individual that one's own inner reality, the blessedness of his or her being. Enjoy your time together with laughter, and present something simple. Pray together in a simple way and use the violet light, and direct them to the website by either printing out certain discourses or dictations that may be meaningful to them and that they can read on their own, or ask questions that will elicit their questions, which you can then attempt to answer as best you can through the knowledge of the Spirit that you hold.
            Often simply listening and holding each one in the light is the best form of heartreach that you can engage in. Your goal is simply to be there and be present, to love and revere the heart, mind and soul of each one. Having gained your respect, they will reflect back to you your reverence and love and will then move on as they feel compelled to pursue the path of divine brotherhood through this dispensation.
            Your example of compassion and love is key. Your love for each other, your revering of each other as holy brothers and sisters will be seen and felt by them more than simply the words that you speak. You know this at the deepest core of your being, and yet at times you forget the simple little things that make souls feel comfortable. Change occurs from within according to God's timetable and the seasons and cycles of a soul's progression and inner transformation. Simply help them to unlock the genius within their own souls and hearts, dear holy brother.

Question: My question is this, beloved Afra. Most African leaders are not serving the African people. How can we change this? What would you advise? What can we do?

Afra:  Continue doing what you are doing through your weekly vigils, naming the names of the leaders of the various nations, naming the challenges and the problems within the society, but more importantly the solutions as you see them. Continue to hold a field of awareness around the leaders so that they may be lifted up in the light to receive directly from their Higher Self greater consciousness and awareness whereby they may radiate to their entire constituencies, the people who come within their jurisdiction, decision making that is in alignment with the will of God and in accordance with higher principles—the golden rule and the truths and values that we hold dear.
            Let there be a group of twelve, nation by nation, that comes together on a regular basis to pray for and name these leaders, upholding them in the light and then simply allowing the angels, the ascended hosts and the masters of heaven to do the inner work that will bring about transformative change. Remember that God is always the doer. You speak the word, but God disposes according to free will and karma that light-energy that you invoke.
            In most cases, the leaders are there to learn lessons of service to their constituencies; but in some cases, unfortunately, there are those who have grabbed power by force or do not have the full God-attainment to understand the laws of karma acting within their worlds and within their nations and peoples. These souls must go through the learning process. In some cases, not having made right decisions, they reenact karmas of the past, outplaying those karmas upon those who have wronged them in past lifetimes rather than learning the law of mercy and forgiveness that could erase and eradicate violence, impetuosity and darkness and bring to bear greater awareness and compassion whereby their peoples could grow in harmony.
            Open that field of harmony and light as best you can day by day, even when you are not coming together in these sessions of prayer, and the highest possible outcomes, based on free will, will manifest through the law of cause and effect. Also pray for new leaders to rise up who are conscious, aware and educated on the principles and values of freedom and respect, and eventually those who are bold in the spirit may rise to the top, as the cream of the crop, to assist in leading their nations and peoples into the light.
            It is not so often that a lightbearer rises to this level of national leadership, as there is the infection upon this planet of greed, of the ego and of the attempt to control others. But a new dawn is coming through the teachings of the ascended masters and the principles of spiritual freedom that will change all this. It begins heart by heart with you.
                In the name I AM THAT I AM, I, Afra, seal this company, this session and each of you in the light of brotherhood. I augment the work that each of you is participating in with great God-determination, with the strength of my beingness in God and by the fire of my determination that each of you shall win your victory. I am your brother, and I continue to serve to set life free. God bless you, my holy ones. I thank you.
