BELove Help & Support
Frequently Asked Questions
What’s the back story on the BELove app?
The video link below provides some detail on the birthing of the BELove app and the broader conversation behind the app.
What is the purpose of the BELove App?
The BELove app is a tool to designed to synchronize and habitualize a communal breath of loving intention.
Across the planet millions of awakened souls are engaged in a myriad of healing efforts. The BELove app holds the promise of bringing humanity together in a simple, technologically-enabled gathering place. We are, in no way diminishing the value of global meditation events that happen for a few hours on a specific day/time. In fact, we see the BELove app as a means to extend and integrate these cosmic connection events into our daily life; like a drumbeat of love, 24/7/ 365 days a year. To that end, we envision mission-driven movements utilizing the BELove app to keep their community infused with love and inspiration on a daily basis.
Ideally we’d love to see BELovers (that’s you!) engaging with the app throughout your day, but we are also realists. So, even if most people end up engaging in just one synchronized breathing minute out of their day, it still adds up. That’s 7 minutes a week multiplied by millions across the globe equating to 7 million mini-meditations/week of collective loving awareness that weren’t happening before. Every act of loving awareness is a gift we get to give ourselves and all with whom we meet.
But wait there’s more . . .
Imagine you’re having a rough day, knowing you are not alone as you breathe with millions of others in loving intention offers a lens of hope for our most difficult days ahead.
Imagine now, you are in the middle of a meeting or away from your phone, because your body is accustomed to taking a BELove breath at the top of every hour, your body’s habitual awareness, will still invite a calming effect on your nervous system. Those of us who have been practicing this for more than a year are aware of the top of the hour approaching even when we are not paying attention. With or without the BELove app, we are habitualizing our loving awareness.
And finally, imagine the moment when you are in a public setting and you hear the 528hz tone go off on another person’s phone. In that moment of synchronized loving awareness, all the distinctions of separation we’ve made such as skin color, gender, etc. dissolve. That’s a true JOJI moment!!! JOJI = Joy Of Joining In. Please imagine that with us! This is the vision, that has kept us going through the entire process as we set out to launch this Breathtaking Movement of Love.
Special note: The vision for the app was first downloaded/imagined on 4/26/19 – long before we were dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic or racial divide finally finding its way our collective awareness. Taking a BELove breath, in our humble opinion, is much like offering CPR to the human condition.
The app also offers a beautiful healing message in response to the grief of “I Can’t Breathe” . . . by manifesting the truth that, “WE are Of One Breath.” The air that we are breathing today is the same that passed through our ancestors and it is ours to pass on to the generations to come. With each breath of loving intention, we are re-programming the molecular structure of our breath from fear back to it’s source code of love.
Of One Breath.org is the non-profit container we created for the BELove app. Our intention is to help non-profits and other conscious communities stay connected in loving intention at the top of every hour.
In the not-too-distant future, we want to offer the BELove app as a fundraising tool to help communities of conscious expand their impact. Imagine signing up for a pledge week to donate a “dime at a time” for each breath you take on behalf of your favorite cause. A few dimes at a time, a few dollars a week, spread over an intentional community, can add up very fast. With just a “dime at a time”, we will be actively moving capital to organizations and activities that bring more love and consciousness to the world. This will harness our Butterfly Effect of loving intention to be in service to limitless shift enabling efforts across the globe.
How should I approach the app?
There are 4 layers of engagement with the app to be mindful of. You can engage in all the layers or select what works best for you.
- Personal Care. At a minimum, take a top of the hour personal grounding/centering break. Take a minute to breathe with the Morpho Butterfly and soak in the 528Hz tone, for your own well-being. In setting your intention at the top of every hour to breathe more love into the world, that loving awareness can’t help but permeate your choices and responses to what is happening around you. We’ve long known that breath is our most powerful tool for calming our nervous system. To that end, you can give yourself a “BELove JOJI moment” whenever you feel like you need some grounding by tapping on the butterfly icon in the top left of the screen. This initiates a full minute of 8 count breathing set to the 528hz tone. Take advantage of this on-demand breath of love for yourself and/or with others as you gather; ideal for families, work groups, community groups, prayer groups, etc.
- Global Feedback. As you participate in the top of the hour breath, you’re part of a growing collective of kindred spirits. Within a moment or two after the top of each hour the app shows you, automatically, how many people joined you (and by location) for the most recent top of the hour breath.
- Soul Pod Feedback. You have the option of inviting up to #100 people into your Soul Pod. In addition to the Global feedback screen, you’ll be able to see how many in your Soul Pod are breathing with you and when they took their most recent BELove breath for that day.
- Passion Pod Feedback. You have the option of joining a pre-defined Passion Pod. Passion Pods give you an opportunity to breathe with others toward a particular cause. It’s time for us to align our attention with our intention! We have created Passion Pod groups on our FaceBook page. This is just the first step in gathering all the wisdom of the shift. Stay tuned on this aspect of the BELove vision . . . there’s more to come on this in the future.
What is a Soul Pod and how does it work?
A Soul Pod is a means of connecting, in breath, with your inner circle of friends (up to #100). To invite your friends into your Soul Pod, all you need is the e-mail your friends or family used to register for the BELove app. If they have not yet downloaded the app, there’s an “Invite Friends” link in the Menu of options in the app. You can invite your friends to the app and your soul pod in the same action. The only way we will achieve the goal of this app, which is to get millions (3.5% – more on this below) engaged in loving awareness is if each BELover takes advantage of the Soul Pod feature. After all, it is our awareness of our inter-connectedness, or the lack thereof, that establishes a baseline of ease (or not) in the human condition.
How many Soul Pods can I be in?
There is no limit to the number of Soul Pods you can belong to. For example, if you are the face of a particular cause (an influencer) with thousands of “followers” on social media, it’s conceivable that thousands of people would like to breathe with you (your cause) as part of their Soul Pod #100. All someone needs to be able to add you to their soul pod is the e-mail address you registered with in the BELove app. If you are a public figure, we recommend you use a publicly designated e-mail address.
What if I want to remove someone from my Soul Pod?
You might get to the upper limit of your Soul Pod #100 and decide there’s someone who you are not as close with anymore, you’ll be able to remove them from your Soul Pod to open up space for someone else. This should not be perceived as “unfriending” someone, as you are forever-linked to them, in breath, as part of the global aspect of the app.
What if I want to remove myself from someone else’s Soul Pod?
You are always in charge of who you are personally connected to in the app. Tap the people icon in the upper left corner of the app to access both invitations and Soul Pod membership options.
Can I name my Soul Pod?
Only you can see your Soul Pod. No one will have access to it, so there’s no need to name it.
What happens if I invite someone to be in my soul pod and they never respond?
After 30 days their name will drop off your invitation list, freeing that space for someone else to be invited.
Can I select which hours of the day I want to participate?
We’ve gone ahead and set up a default schedule to get you started, but we encourage you to set a range of hours for each day that fits with your lifestyle. Go to “Breathing Times” in the BELove menu to set this up.
What if I miss a top of the hour BELove notification?
If you’ve missed a notification at the top of the hour, you can always tap the butterfly at the top of the menu bar. This activates the Morpho Butterfly and registers your breath with the main database. If you do this within the first minute of the hour it will be counted for that hour. If you do it after the first minute of the hour, it will be counted towards the next hour.
Please note: internet connectivity may impact the the timing of when your breath is registered and when feedback is received.
Why the 528Hz tone and where does this come from?
The top-of-the-hour BELove app tone is tuned to 528Hz frequency. The video link below offers a detailed explanation for why we chose this frequency and what it means. We make no specific claims about the benefits of this frequency, but there’s a lot of information to explore that is worthy of an open mind.
What is a JOJI number?
JOJI stand for Joy Of Joining In. Each person who downloads the BELove app receives a JOJI number. You’ll find your JOJI number on your “my account” screen. The numbers are sequential 1 to 11M and beyond. This is in keeping with our understanding of what it takes to create the critical mass of shift. See next section where we discuss 3.5% target.
What’s the deal with the 3.5% target?
On the same day, the idea for the app arrived, so did this TEDx talk. In short, it takes 3.5% of a population to create enough critical mass to shift a culture/consciousness. Here is the link to the full TED talk:
Why so much emphasis on the Morpho butterfly?
We choose the butterfly as our totem because it reflects the power of metamorphic shift from one state of being to another. The caterpillar (old construct) must completely disintegrate to it’s source code (imaginal discs/buds) to fulfill it’s destiny as a butterfly.
We selected the Morpho Butterfly, in particular, because it’s beautiful blue color makes it stand out aesthetically as well as structurally. The blue in the Blue Morpho butterfly is not an actual color pigment like the brown and orange colors on the reverse side of the morpho’s wings. Instead we learned it’s a crystalline scale-like structure that reflects only the blue light waves from the full spectrum of light, much like a prism transforms white light into a rainbow.
The symbology of its crystalline nature fits with the metamorphic shift of consciousness we are engaged in.
What is the Butterfly Effect?
The BE in BELove = Butterfly Effect. Simply put, small changes within a system can have a big impact. The video below describes this phenomenom in detail.
