It's the same as being able to type without hunching over to look at the keyboard. As you get used to the motions it just starts coming naturally.

Well at that time I wouldn't say that you should be worrying about that kind of thing but you'll find that as you go on it'll come naturally but some things will probably always be impossible to play without looking, mainly big position shifts.
