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

A Mission of Love to Ghana

A Call to Those Who Would Be Ambassadors of Love, Peace and Brotherhood
From the Point of Perfect Peace, Brotherhood Flows

            Greetings, everyone. Afra is here and extends his heart to each one of you. The extension of his heart is conveyed with a sacred motion, a movement of his hand, the right hand, from his heart to his head as he bows to the Christ, the Buddha within you—very similar to the Salām 1 that is offered as a sign of peace, brotherhood to those that we newly meet or friends of old.
            In this conveyance, Afra is extending a light of acceleration of freedom's fire and of soulfulness. For he has drawn from within his soul a very high vibration of cosmic soulfulness, which he blends with the resource of his heart-centeredness and his love for humanity, and extends it and shines it forth to us and through us, because each of us represents an entire sector of society within our earth. Each of us represents, really, a people and a portion of an evolution of lightbearers. This extension of his heart and his soulfulness is a blessing, is a boon and it is meant for us to accelerate consciousness so that we in turn can follow his lead and bring the Salām and the flame of peace everywhere we walk. 
            Afra will now, for a few minutes, field any questions related to the pilgrimage or to the spiritual work that you are about for Africa, if you so desire. So the two things that the questions should relate to are the pilgrimage and the spiritual work that we are collectively doing for Africa. Does anybody have any questions right now?

Question:  Beloved Afra, can you outline for us what our spiritual work will entail in Ghana?

David:  Well, he's showing me the schedule that we've put together, the program, and that is the general outline. The places that have been suggested and approved for us to visit are representative of very intense records in these areas, such as those of slavery, as we know. Part of our spiritual work is doing, at a very, very deep level, what I would call cosmic Ho'oponopono to completely forgive those involved in the slave trade by washing clean everything—the records, the feeling, the blood that has been spilled, all of the emotional turbulence that has left a deep impression around that area and deep within the earth.
            What Afra is saying is that we have to realize that there's no injustice in the universe and that those who were enslaved in past incarnations enslaved others. Even though there is the desire to understand why and to feel the record and to transmute it, we have to go back farther and realize that there has been this interplay and dynamic of injustices foisted upon individuals and peoples in a tit-for-tat type of action over generations, lifetimes, even centuries and even millennia. So in a sense we're forgiving ourselves. At the core of this issue is the fact that anyone who was a slave at one time enslaved others. So we must see ourselves representing a vast sea of peoples who have been beset by this injustice and then forgive ourselves. The God within us is the doer in this.
            If when we go there we can come from a reference point of understanding the higher principles and the laws of cosmos that are in effect—that there is no injustice in the universe and everything is the outpicturing of karma—and  simultaneously choose to live beyond human drama and karma and step out of the dynamic of all of these injustices, the tit-for-tat violence and the abrogation of both human and divine laws through enslavement and all of its ramifications, we can collapse both the record and the angst and the energy of all of these enslavements. We can choose, on behalf of those peoples that we individually and collectively represent, to walk a higher path of freedom, enlightenment and to be slaves only to God, in the sense that we are chelas of the One. That is where we put our trust and our devotion, and we place our hands in the very hands of God.
            Understanding this teaching and the work of forgiveness, mercy compassion, kindness, we can extend ourselves into these records, as initiates, and draw the substance out of the earth into our hearts, into our souls and feel the transmutation occurring, and then channel it into a higher divine purpose. This is one of the key reasons we are going to visit these places. Yes, there are historical records, and we may tap into them and we may hear about them from our guides and others who understand what occurred in these places. What we have to do is keep our heart-mind connection and maintain a higher Buddhic mind-set so we don't get embroiled in or trapped in this sense of injustice, which doesn't fare us well as initiates ourselves.
            So that's the first thing about a portion of our spiritual work. We are anchoring light—the light of Arcturus and Victoria as the Gods of Freedom, as the Elohim of Freedom for our planet. Because of the concentration of all of the prayers that we have given over the last series of months and even years in preparation for this event, we are to see ourselves as dynamic God-men and God-women who know who we are and who are there to invest the light of the Elohim tangibly in the heart chakra of Africa so that it can fan out and heal and raise the entire continent. 
            As the third major pilgrimage through this dispensation, this is the culmination of power, wisdom and love. And there will be, Afra says, an anchoring of an action of the threefold flame as an intense, permanent energy field of fire that will be there for the lightbearers to draw from so that they may have more balance in their lives. One of the key issues for many of the evolutions there is having balance. Many of the people in Africa have great attainment in certain sciences and arts from past lifetimes. The issue is for them to balance their daily life in a number of arenas so that that attainment may flow and be utilized by the soul to bring about a higher way, a more equitable path and a new divine world.
            Afra says that this is primarily a mission of love and of anchoring the love plume, and those who are going are ambassadors of love. We are all to be ambassadors of God-love, of the love of humanity, the love of all peoples, of all races, of all skin colors, of all generational traits. As we anchor love through our hearts on a moment-by-moment basis, those that we contact will hopefully feel that love, will feel what the Hearts Center movement is truly about, which is love. By our love they shall know us; by our love we invest God's light there in a most powerful way that will transform the entire continent.
            It begins in Ghana. Love begins in Ghana, in Accra, as the heart chakra. And we can see all the rivers, the mighty rivers of Africa, as tributaries of the heart of Afra. We can see the Congo River, the Zambezi, the Nile and all of  Africa's rivers as veins of light through which Afra's love flows out to all. So we see our hearts bonded with Afra's and the love flowing and continuing to issue forth to feed the spiritual requirements of all lightbearers and all peoples upon the entire continent.
            Just as we drew the light from the crown and the white chakra, now we draw the light of the heart. We've gone from the top to the base and now to the center, and this is itself an alchemy. We began with the light descending through the crystal cord through the crown in our trip to Egypt; and then we delivered it, by the principle of the Mother Light, into the base in South Africa and had that wonderful ritual.
Now we are going to the heart to draw the light of Alpha and Omega, through the Son, into the heart of Africa. The blending of the resource of Alpha and Omega through the birth of the Christ through the heart is part of our purpose and mission. So we also see ourselves as representatives of Alpha and Omega, of the fathering and the mothering aspects of the African Council and their representatives. We truly represent the African Council, in one sense. And depending on how many people we have going and how many members are on that council, each of us could see ourselves as representing one of the African Council. Can you remind me right now how many are on that council? Anybody? Maybe I have to count them up.

Participant:  I believe there are fourteen.

David:  If we had twenty-eight people, then two people would represent each one of the members of that council. We will have at least fourteen. So you can pick a council member—and maybe we'll do that formally later—and walk in that one's causal body, in that one's shoes, so to speak, and call to that one to help to anchor the light. A number of them will be speaking during this event, and you could highlight how many of the African Council members are actually going to be speaking.
            So we are ambassadors of love. We are ambassadors for the African Council. We are there to complete the threefold flame. We are there to bring all higher through this cosmic Ho'oponopono, through an intense action of forgiveness. And beyond forgiveness, as adepts we are there to draw out that substance and the records through our hearts to transmute them and then use that energy to bless life, to raise life.
            These are some of the primary purposes of this pilgrimage and our role in it. And then there's having fun and bringing joy to the heart of Africa—the joy of our hearts and the joy of the finality of all of the work and the prayers and the sessions that you all have had, and we all have had together, over these many months and even years. So the joy aspect is something we, of course, can't forget, and we will choose to make it very tangible and a part of the element of each day. Afra says, “Let's make sure that we begin each day with some joyful sharing,” joyful sharing—jokes, stories and wonderful heart sharings that bring all joy, personal experiences that people have had in the retreats or some divine encounter or revelation or whatever.
            So there will be time throughout, and there should be time throughout, for these times of our camaraderie, our togetherness, our brotherhood and fraternal love and our sharing through joy. So that, I think, answers your question, hopefully.

Participant: Thank you, beloved Afra.

Afra: You're welcome.

David:  This visualization of the rivers is important. It would be nice to have a list of the major rivers and discern how each one represents an aorta or a major vessel within the body of Africa, even the body of Afra. I named three rivers, and I'm sure there are many more. In my lifetime as David Livingstone, traveling on these rivers was very important. Knowing the length of the rivers and the geography of the rivers was very important because it was a lot easier to navigate upon rivers than to go completely by land through the various areas. If you study that lifetime and some of your own lifetimes that you may have had upon that continent, you will see how important these rivers are to the people there, especially the Nile, the Congo, the Zambezi. And there are a few others, of course, that are very important. So if someone were to do that geographical research and  have these highlighted, we can meditate and send light through the rivers.
            This is especially important now because of Hercules' labor with the water. So we, as brothers and sisters of Afra and those who are participating in these vigils, can take that Hercules labor to heart and apply it to the continent of Africa and specifically call for the purification, the cleansing of these rivers and, of course, the waters around the entire continent. We've heard of the terrible oil spills on the western coast that have affected life, which, of course, here in America we never hear of. Just as there has been the Gulf spill here, there was a terrible, terrible spill and an ongoing pollution of the shoreline, and we have to clean that up too. So that comes within the purview of our ongoing work on behalf of this Hercules labor.

Question:  In light of the comment about water and Hercules' request for us to work in that area, there was a very interesting report today about the tremendous drought that has lasted two years in Ethiopia and Kenya and that all these people are migrating from Somalia into Kenya. Tens of thousands of people are at risk of dying as a result of the lack of water.

David: You have to look deeper at why there is a lack of water. It's man's inhumanity to man and it's also caused by the manipulation of the elements through black magic and witchcraft and voodoo. So it's a combination of a number of factors. Primarily it is man's inhumanity to man and to nature and the slaughtering of people, the slaughtering of animals, the lack of respect for nature, the original respect that the native peoples had. They worked in consonance with nature rather than harnessing and violating nature just to get riches out of the earth—the gold the oil, the diamonds and everything else. Those who have plundered the earth, in the process have shown great injustice toward individuals and engaged in virtual slavery of many of the common people.
            Even though some of this may not have occurred in Somalia, it's a race karma and there are other factors involved. There have been droughts in a number of nations, not just Somalia—in Sudan and other regions. Look at the Sahara itself. Why is that desert there? There's a specific reason, which has to do with the collapse of a culture and the turning away from God in general.
            So we look at all this as an object lesson for us to go within, do our spiritual work, do our cleansing work, our purification, our transmutation and, of course, pray for a divine solution and for rains to come, for the balance of water to occur again. And part of the burden upon Mother Earth has to do with the violence against the Mother. When there is rape, when there is the killing of innocent life and abortion, that itself is the worst violation of the Mother, which then results in these natural, really unnatural, weather conditions that bring imbalance. When people of different tribes are warring and there's slaughter on a mass scale and a lot of rape, that will result in these types of things happening somewhere on the continent. Thank you for telling us that.

Question: Does anyone from the Afra group on the call have a question for beloved Afra?

David: Afra is receding now and Jesus is stepping forth and lending the resource of his heart to Afra. He sees the resolution of conflicts upon the African continent as key to world peace. He is the Prince of Peace. And since Afra welcomed us with the sign of Salām, of peace, Jesus responded, and he is now also blessing us as ambassadors of peace and brotherhood. So on behalf of Afra we're ambassadors of love; on behalf of Jesus we will be ambassadors of peace and brotherhood, which, as we know, are on the sixth ray.
            To have brotherhood, Jesus says, you have to have peace within you. To have true brotherhood on this earth, we have to have the mastery of our emotional body, the water within us, and have peace. And from that point of perfect peace, brotherhood flows. So that's a very simple, quick teaching from the Prince of Peace to us, and it is important for us to consider in light of Hercules' labor. By mastering our emotional body, our solar plexus and the flow of light through us, we achieve inner peace and project brotherhood to all. And we will only have that true brotherhood around the world when peace reigns supreme within the hearts and minds and lives of devotees.

1. Salām is an Arabic word meaning “peace” and is often used as a greeting. “The word ‘Salam' is one of the names of Allah Almighty and it is included in the Islamic greeting ‘Assalamu Alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh' (May the peace of Allah descend upon you and His Mercy and Blessings). In pre-Islamic Arabia, when people met, they used to greet each other with various greetings. Islam changed and replaced these greetings with this standard form of greeting. The greeting ‘Assalamu Alaykum' is commonly translated as ‘peace be upon you' and it means: May you remain safe from every pain, sorrow and distress.”  “The word Salam is one the good names of Allah Almighty and ‘Assalamu Alaykum' means: Allah Almighty is your guardian and caretaker. (Ahkam al-Qur'an). Due to this aspect of Salam, it is generally impermissible to use this form of greeting for non-Muslims.”
