On site divining is in operation when you get a reaction in the body to a physical anomaly on the ground. Water divining comes squarely under this category along with ground searches for mineral ores or locating underground pipes on a building site. With water for instance, it is the strong magnetic field generated in the ground by the water itself which distorts the diviners hands or trembles an animals whiskers to tell us all where the underground stream is.
Intuitive divining is in operation when you have a pendulum and a map and you're searching on this for a missing person or animal, for example. Here you’re clearly using traditional divining as a way of channeling and amplifying your intuition. In cases like these, the traditional diviner tunes in to their intuitive sense of what’s on that map. Here we are using the divining instrument to let us know consciously what we are intuiting subconsciously. This is why all the factors which effect the intuition come into play in this work, yet they are not as influencial in on site divining .
