When it comes to magick sometimes you just have to go with what feels right. It doesn't always have to be strict and formal. We can practice magick informally and intuitively.
What is intuition?
Intuition can be defined as "the ability to understand something instinctively, without the need for conscious reasoning". It's a form of insight, higher knowledge or wisdom. It may also refer to our sixth sense that enables us to grasp information beyond what our mind would ordinarily perceive.
The original meaning of the word 'intuition' comes from the Latin word 'intueri': "to look towards". That's why intuition is also known as your inner voice.
Intuition can be used to guide you in magick, whether it's practiced formally or informally. Your intuition is an important part of your magickal practice. If you've never given it much thought, now is a good time to start.
How to listen to your intuition.
The first step is to learn how to listen to your intuition. This takes practice, but it's well worth the effort. Here are a few tips:
Be still and quiet. You need to be in a calm state of mind so you can listen to your inner voice.
Take some time for yourself every day to listen to your inner voice.
Be aware of your feelings, emotions and physical sensations. All these things will help guide you in the right direction.
Trust your intuition when making decisions in life. If it feels right, go for it! It might not always be easy to trust your intuitions, but if you practice regularly, you'll become more attuned to them and learn to trust your gut feelings.
How to strengthen your intuition?
One way to strengthen your intuition and get in touch with it more often is by practicing divination . Here are some popular forms of divination: tarot reading , scrying , pendulum dowsing , automatic writing, among others.
If you've never practiced any kind of divination before, I would recommend starting with tarot reading. Once you get the hang of it, divination will become a very intuitive process. You can also experiment with other methods until you find one that fits your tastes and interests the best .
Another way to develop your intuition is by paying attention to your dreams. Dreams are often a way for our subconscious mind to communicate with us. They can offer us important insights and guidance, if we're willing to listen.
Applying your intuition in your spiritual practice
Intuition can also be applied in your spiritual practice. For example, you can use it to choose which crystals to work with, what affirmations to recite, or which meditations to do.

Your intuition is a valuable tool, so trust it and go with what feels right for you. The more you practice, the stronger your intuition will become. And that's a good thing, because you'll want to rely on it heavily in times of need.
