Why We Should Listen to Our Intuition: Even when it Points Toward Bad Vibes.

Intuition is like our own inner GPS; telling what’s around us and guiding us toward each destination on our on going journey.

Im really good at listening to my intuition, that gut feeling we get when  it’s time to make a decision. Because of how much I’ve learned to value my intuition I always, 100% of the time, choose to follow it when spirit is pointing me toward good vibes. But, lately I haven’t been the easiest to convince when it points toward something with vibes that don’t seem so bright.

March 11, 2020, I experienced something that reminded me I am always guided by the universe. Sometimes the universe will pull me toward energy vibrating high and sometimes it will show me when energy is vibrating low. Both to make me stronger and lead me toward my divine path. It’s always in my best interest if I listen and if I don’t, universe will make a lesson out of it which will push me toward those higher vibes.

About a week before the experience I woke up from a frightening dream. I was waking up in my bedroom first thing in the morning. Quite and nervous as I heard foot steps walking on the other side of my four walls. Suddenly a white male with grey/white hair and glasses burst through my door. I scrambled to find my phone and call for help but he grabbed me and stabbed my leg. Threatening me not to say a word as my mom answered the phone. He was trying to kidnap me. Scary shit right?

When I woke from the dream I knew it had a powerful meaning, but it was scary as shit. I didn’t want to decode a dream with bad vibes because I didn’t want to think about something like that happening to me or what it was mirroring inside me. So I avoided it left it in dreamland.

March 11, 2020 around 6 p.m. I went to go walk a trail through these woods with my best friend and her 12 month old son. Its not as sketchy as it sounds. This was a family trial where people run and walk dogs all the time. We both had been walking this trail for over a year together and on our own at times too. Each walk was always filled with beautiful energy and peace from being immersed in nature. Here, we knew we were protected and surrounded by our great mother earth. This particular day, we walked deeper into the trail then either of us had ever been, taking a new route, and accepting it as symbolic to our new journey in life. The vibes were new and thrilling until we reached a certain point…

We were stopped at a small waterfall when I started feeling really anxious and paranoid. I felt like something was watching us. But, because my friend was so at peace and we were in such a beautiful moment I pushed it away thinking,

Nah we good, stop trippin.

We kept walking through the new route not knowing where exactly we were and that feeling came back. I felt unsafe. But again I pushed it away thinking me doing this was symbolic of me being brave through this new journey I was about to embark on in my life outside the trail. The new path was absolutely beautiful. It was very intense and hilly, giving us beautiful views of nature the entire time. Suddenly, we heard a sound through the trees.

What was that?

The feeling came back again stronger than the last but I still didn’t mention to my friend how I felt. I didn’t want to ruin the walk being negative Nancy and bringing bad vibes to the experience. Immediately after I ignored the sound, I noticed a rotting tree. This tree had black liquid oozing from it. I thought to myself,

Thats a sign Nala.

but still kept walking. Seconds later I saw this black liquid splattered on other trees and a pile of shit on the ground.

At this point, the feeling that there was danger ahead was so strong I had to physically place my hand over my heart to calm my energy. I couldn’t ignore this feeling but there was nothing we could do. We were too deep to turn around, all we could do was keep going. I repeatedly reminded myself I am protected, I am safe, I am divinely guided. Naturally, I started walking and breathing faster and suddenly my friend stopped. She said she felt we need to slow down and be present as she had begun feeling anxious.


We both had admitted our feelings of anxiety but assumed it was because we weren’t familiar with the new path we took. We took deep breath and continued. As soon as we keep walking we turned and noticed a white man with grey/white hair and glasses standing off the trail in the midst of trees. He gave us a chilling stare and begun moving toward us. Both of our fright or flight gears kicked in and we walked faster while looking back continuously to see if he was after us. But, because we were in the woods and he was off the trail, we couldn’t see past the trees. My heart fell out of my chest.

After a few minutes of pure panic, we simultaneously stopped in our tracks and agreed we needed to calm our energy because fear is what attracts fear. We held hands and placed our other hands on a large tree trunk, creating a circle of divine energy.

We verbally stated,

“We are safe and divinely protected.”

After this affirmation, the energy of the whole situation began to calm down. We kept walking and eventually became familiar with where we were again. We had circled back around to where we began to walk the trail. We stopped again to admire the views and even jokingly laughed about how hard we were trippin.

“That man was probably on shrooms, in a deep trip with nature, and minding his own business.”

We returned to my car, strapped the baby in, and were talking about something totally different when suddenly a car slowly rolled past us. It was the same man. He purposely rolled past my car and rolled down the window while giving us another chilling look like……

yea…… I was watching you and you’re lucky you got away.

We learned, this man had followed us all the way back, and even watched to see what car we got into.

He was a dark energy. He was out standing in the woods, waiting to prey on someone. A runner or just any woman or child walking the trail alone. You may ask, how do you know he was on that type of shit? It was the feeling we both had, it was the energy. If you know, you know. Energy DOES NOT LIE.

Was it our affirmation that prevented him from attacking us? What is the fact that we were two women and not one? Was it the baby on her back that made him a little remorseful?

Dark energy and maybe even death was right next to us, yet we were still protected. Thank you God.

My intuition was warning me the entire time. The rotten trees, the poop, and the sound. I even watched a film about two missing girls right before going to the trail. These were all signs from universe.

Moral of the story is, trust intuition. It speaks to us through our dreams and our waking life. Life is not soley a fairytale. Yes, there are beautiful and whimsical things for us to experience here; but, there is still evil out there and we have to have precaution. Spirit guides us through our intuition. We are guided toward whats going on inside, what we need to heal, and what’s manifesting before us. My intuition warned me in my dream the week before hand, but I failed to listen. Then, it manifested from my subconscious to my conscious; me watching the movie. Finally, because I still didn’t grasp what my intuition was trying to help me heal, it manifested  again in real life through this vary experience.

So, whether your intuition shows you invigorating or frightening messages, listen. Don’t doubt yourself because you don’t want to be pessimistic. We need a healthy amount of pessimism and optimism to stay protected on this path of life.

Though I chose to ignore my intuition. Spirit made me stronger and wiser through the experience. I may have suffered a bit of PTSD; but, overall I relearned important lessons and have begun uncovering the root of what my intuition was telling me I need to heal. Im still uncovering the deeper meaning behind why I attracted all of this into my reality.But for now I thought I’d share this experience. Stay safe out here y’all; physically and spiritually protected.


They can see me but they can’t touch me.

I am always divinely protected.

I attract certain energy by fearing it.
