i agree its intuitive but its also part a developed skill, after a while you can gage how much energy you need to put out etc. As for releasing into the universe all you need to do is "think it"
Visualization is the main tool we use to give our energy instructions as to what we want it to do, so saying in short you visualize your own way or releasing it. There is no standard way cause its very diverse and always open to various styles.
When at the end of your ritual/spell and wanting to release this into the universe for it to manifest.
Sit or stand raising your arms in "god position" (both arms in the air making a v shape)
and visualize the sky (solar system and planets) and see it opening a gateway allowing you to send energy into it, see your energy flowing upward into the universal gates preparing to manifest. Breathe a calm sighing breath of confirmation when done.

By saying "So mote it be", "So be it", you are releasing the spell into the universe.
Have you ever heard of the energy rituals from Ceremonial magic, where your opening the chakras and circulating energy? They are easy enough to do once you remember the words, and they help you to put energy into spells.
