A chart showing the times at which major and minor periods occur is a valuable guide for those wishing to use arealoha energies. They are known as solunar tables and appear in many local newspapers for the guidance of fishermen and hunters in their specific areas; see accompanying sample.

It is rather amazing how reliably the charts are calculated for each individual area, but according to our testing there are times when we find that they start sooner or later than the chart indicates.

During the major and minor periods fish and animals are generally feeding and it is in this connection that solunar tables have been used. If one tests the appestat on his tongue (refer to Born to be Magnetic, page 151), he would probably find his recording wire was stimulated with an alternating motion without having to think of strawberry shortcake. (Refer to diagram 12 for a more convenient appestat receptor for testing purposes.)

The major period lasts about one and one-half to two hours and the minor period about a half hour. I would not recommend using arealoha energies during these periods for they are times of energy fluctuations when the direction of energy flow can change rapidly. It is hard to determine the correct relative positions in which to place the sea salt and soda and there is no certainty that the field will not switch before you are finished using them. Generally, the energy force field flows predominantly from either east or west at these times, but occasionally switches over so that it flows from north or south. Therefore the energies during the major and minor periods are subject to variations and cannot be used reliably.

When the periods are over the energy flow will usually revert to predominantly north or south fields. One can actually determine how close the time is to a period by the angle of the energy flow, see diagram 11, page 167.
