I have some time to get to this today. I had hoped that I could work myself into a better synchronization with a higher self before writing this, but have not yet succeeded, and do not wish to make this delayed until whenever the next time I succeed may come. I may however, rewrite this should the time come.
The employ of intuition is something that I personally find to be incredibly important, and rather indispensable. I recall a post last thread on subconscious not being properly described, that it should not be thought of as something which exists below the conscious mind at all, but if anything, sub as in subterranean. Intuition, as I see it, as a connection between the conscious mind, and the unconscious mind, as I will hereon use to refer to the subconscious. Of course the unconscious is not at all unconscious, but rather lacks an ego, so it seems to me. Perhaps the unconscious is our fuller mind, which left itself outside us, in persona, because it doesn't fit. For those who have felt the call of the blood, Nostalgia, there seems to be a wellspring from which that light comes...
For intuition, I quiet my mind and heart, and listen within for a still, soft whisper which comes from this point. A point, which seems to be nowhere at all...
To commune with your unconscious, rather, to realize what you are thinking there, here, consciously, you must learn the discipline to silence your conscious mind, and your heart. Quiet, still your emotions, your conscious thought, and listen "behind" or more accurately, on the "other side" of your conscious. This form of thought is difficult because it does not come to the conscious mind easily, nor does it come in words. Pure concepts, forms, shapeless, boundless, made less pure and constrained by coming here. I do not mean to say to fade your conscious mind, to remove it or to remove your emotion, to receive from the unconscious, it is necessary for them to be, as it is through very quiet emotions and swift outlines of thoughts it, you, speak. The quieting and stilling of your mind and heart is so that the loud sound of them do not drown out the unconscious.
I hope this is enough, and is helpful. I hope that I have not shared too much, either. For practicing this, I suggest pacing. I find this gives the material self something to do and focus on, allowing the conscious mind to retreat into one's inner world more easily, and with fewer intrusions from the anxious material self. I live somewhere with a lot of noisy distractions, so I listen to music which is easy to ignore but drowns out the noises, any in a similar position may desire to try the same. Of course, these are mere suggestions.
