For me, listening to intuition is akin to what it feels like when you hear a noise in the middle of the night and you don't know where it is coming from. You stand up, in the dark and listen with your whole body, not just your ears or eyes but you whole being. Only instead of listening for an outside noise, or an inside noise, because in truth there is no out or in, you simply hold still for a noise or some kind of communication.
You see you must bring your attention to your Awareness and your Awareness IS the subconscious come present moment as they are an extension of each other. This is the only way to receive spiritual guidance such as intuition or even instinct.
Our consciousness (attention) must be present in the Now rather than our thoughts or we will miss it due to being distracted.
The subconscious is referred to as the heart as it holds within it the emotional body. Our body is a representation of our subconscious and likewise so is the body of the world when we come to know ourselves beyond the personal.
Therefore, be still mentally in this moment and know that I AM
