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

Spirit of Soulfulness 2010
New York, New York

            I Am Radiating Forth from the Base of Africa Now, to the Crown, a Spiral of Soulfulness and Calling to the Souls of My Heart to Ascend Daily

            My God is compelling. He is compelling me higher, and I extend this invitation to you and compel you to ascend daily. The light of God is what compels us higher. Within that light is an action of such sublimity, love, brotherhood, transcendence that once we feel it within our soul, nothing can stand in the way of our ascent, my brothers and sisters.

            I am soulfulness, even as I see that divine quality manifesting more and more within you as you embrace the totality of your soul's essence. What is the fabric of this soul? What is the very substance of its essence that may be employed within our lives as we ascend? There are many manifestations of what this soulfulness may represent as you evolve through the planes of matter and ascend into the planes—the dimensionless planes—of spirit. And the compelling One, God, invites you to experience them all. You have [done so], lifetime after lifetime. And in this one there may be the culmination of that experience through “Oversoulness.” Not that you are over your soulfulness, but that the Oversoul has fully embodied within your soul and thus you are full of God's soulfulness.

            The soul of God is beautiful. Its essence stretches out across the galaxies, the entire cosmos and is felt by those who are sensitive to its reality, because they have opened up their consciousness to perceive this holy essence. When you tap into this universal soulfulness, your victory is assured because it moves you. Even in the words of your prayers to me, I am moved anew each time to higher dimensional planes of light. You see, you prompt me to ascend daily through my own spirit of oneness with God. You push me higher each time you aspire to your own divinity through soulfulness. And as I ascend, I pull you up because my soul is attached to yours, each one, in a sacred way that is unique. This attachment is my love for you. This attachment is what brotherhood is composed of and it nurtures each one of us through God's essence that flows through us.

            This same feeling is what the Brotherhood Eternal knows each cosmic moment beyond time and space as the Holy Spirit flows through the light-essence of our solar bodies. And I invite you, each one, to consider blending the resources of your own soulfulness with this universal stream as you envision yourself one in light with us forevermore, living in a new reality of possibilities in presence.

            I have called you to a trip to Ghana, and you are preparing. You have set the seal upon this alchemical and sacred journey. And one is here to assist you. And I enfire her heart with my love, for she deserves it. How many will be there with me as we land in Accra and partake of the heart of Africa? Stand and acclaim your desire. [Numerous audience members stand.] So be it! The Recording Angels write your names in the Book of Life of this trip and offer you by your declaration the abundance that you require to manifest it, the time, the means, the wherewithal to assist Saint Germain and me with this alchemy and what we together will accomplish for our holy brothers and sisters in the heartland of the Light Continent, no longer the Dark Continent, blessed hearts. Please be seated.

            I am radiating forth from the base of Africa now, to the crown, a spiral of soulfulness and calling to the souls of my heart to ascend daily. As you work to publish my teachings and that which I have shared from the depths of my soul, my heart, pray for this teaching to go far and wide and especially to contact those who know of me and yet who may be caught in some way, preventing them from accepting this dispensation, my presence in your midst and our joint mission. Yes, I may use them through their words and works. And yet, together as one, we may accomplish greater works and move Africa into a higher field of virtue and light.

            As you conduct your services each week and pray for each nation, send forth the intent of your soul into the soul of Africa. A great pool of light is abuilding that we will use during that pilgrimage to accomplish what humanly may seem miraculous, but with us is common fare, for God is the doer, God is the believer in himself-herself. And in that cosmic level of belief, what is stated is, what is known by intent is fully self-realized and true. It may be the same with you, blessed ones. Do not shortchange yourself thinking one day that you are your God Self and the next that you have made so many mistakes that you are not worthy of the light from your God Presence. Remain tethered to my soul, for I am tethered to you as you choose this union.

            Even in moments of pain, sorrow or a sense of lack, instantly I will lift you up, do you see? [Audience responds, "Yes!"]  Instantly, I can be in your auric field and I will compel you to ascend higher by your own God-desire to do so. This is not coercion as black magic. It is your free-will choice to call me into action and assist you by the grace of God, by the love of God, by the tryst of our hearts, by the energies of our souls. There is enough energy within our souls to accomplish the ends of God within the realms of man if we let it loose and let joy flow through our souls, blessed hearts! Let it loose through dance and song and poetry and even some of you may yet learn to fly [audience laughs] and pull others up as you levitate! It is possible.

            The Scriptures have spoken, "Holiness unto the Lord."1 And that is what I offer to you this day. Whatever level of holiness that I have embodied, that God has vouchsafed to me within my soul, I extend it to you so that you may always know and feel and realize that you, too, are holy. Your soul is wholly God's, is wholly mine. Though I would not possess you, I would emanate through you. Yes, I compel you to ascend daily, hourly, every moment. Yet, be patient with yourself in this process and know that God is that compelling force that lifts you up on angels' wings and guides you to the throne, the three-in-one, of his divinity in beingness.

            I see the virtue within your soul now. I highlight it with a cosmic magic marker in golden tones such that everyone may know the true component of your soul's reality as the essence of what you have mastered as that virtue in this life and in all past lives. This is your essence! This is what lasts, what is universal and immortal—the virtues that you have accumulated and become. Sing the praise to the One that is unending, that is eternal. [Afra breathes the outbreath for 5 seconds.] A wisp of cosmic soulfulness is yours to breathe in any time. It remains in the ethers as a spirit-fire, as blessing, as boon, even as my communion to you—the very substance of my celestial body, the very wine of my spirit-fire.

            The sign of the cross, this communion, is yours this day and every day that you call my name and ask to receive it in love. 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.

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.
