PHOENIX AND ITS FORSHADOWING by Ayala Nunez
“First of all, let’s time-stamp the very publishing of this article, and that date in particular is 8/20/2021. This is the very day when I received the highly-anticipated job offer from the Phoenix VA. Now, as a mental note, I (personally) have been applying for jobs in Northern, Arizona. This, seriously, was my real target destination. But after one job interview transgressing further into another after another, with failed results, I started to change it up a little bit, by applying to Phoenix, instead. Plus, from what I heard, the salary is more similar in relation to the Cleveland VA Medical System here in the Midwest, so it made better sense to focus more within the Phoenix area, as far as VA’s are concerned. But for some reason, it seems that GOD truly wanted me in Phoenix, regardless of what my focus was. So, this sets the stage for the rest of my story.
Exactly 10 years ago, I met a therapist (from Arizona) at a Nursing Conference in Ohio. She walked-up specifically to the very table where I and the many nurses I used to work with (from the Cleveland VA Medical Center) sat. She was focused on me. And (look) she interrupted all of us from amid three separate and individuated conversations, which were simultaneously going on at the time at our table, just to yell out:
‘OH MY GOD, JOEL! HOW YOU BEEN! WHAT ARE YOU DOING HERE IN OHIO!’
Long story short, from within our in-depth conversation many minutes into it, she swore to her son’s life that I was the same Nurse she personally knew who practiced in Phoenix. And I do specifically remember looking at my friend, Lisha, who sat right next to me. I wanted to receive facial validation from her, to know specifically within her eyes that she was experiencing exactly the same thing that I was experiencing with my very own eyes!
At the moment of our chance ‘out of the blue’ meeting, this therapist enthusiastically stated my first and last name precisely, the fact that I was a practicing nurse who actively worked in Phoenix, and also emphasized the fact that (physically) I was Filipino with a shaved head who stood at exactly my height at 5’ 7”, and that we knew each other closely and personally. Yes, we were good friends! And as she repetitively and intensely stared into my eyes, she kept on exclaiming, ‘It’s you! It’s you! It’s not a person who looks like you! It’s you, Joel! The way you say words and in how your facial expressions reflect words is exactly how the Joel that I know would express himself! Your facial inflections are the same. Joel, it’s you!’
As a response, I was completely baffled and confused. Was this a perfect example of mistaken identity? But simply out of respect, I politely told her that I did not know her, per say, and (at that very moment) I explained to her that I had never been to Arizona – NEVER. Regardless, I found that the entire encounter, although odd, was quite amazing and very interesting.
And I also found it rather peculiar indeed that, not only did she know my first and last name, but she also pronounced my last name correctly. Often, when people do pronounce my last name correctly, it puts a smile to my face, but within this instance, I found it very disturbing. Historically, people have often attempted to state my name correctly to the best of their American ability in cultural tongue, but far too frequently people have pronounced my name in error, often tremendously in error with flying colors. But with this particular woman in question, she knew the correct way in how to state my last name without fumbling around with the pronunciation – NO DIFFICULTY AT ALL!!!
THIS BOGGLED MY MIND!
WHO IS THIS WOMAN!
Regardless, we exchanged business cards and personal cell phone numbers. But to this day, I cannot find her business card, for the very life of me! If only I had her card! After all these years, I tried so many times to find her contact information. I have so many questions to ask her. Who is this Joel in Phoenix? Is he a Doppelgänger or is he actually me, the ‘Joel’ that I know? How close were you and this Joel in Phoenix? Funny, when we did finally say our most awkward of goodbyes, she still continued to stare at me as she walked away from the corner of my eyes.
From the last ten years, this mystery has baffled me to this very day. And (yes) I am still very much so, bewildered and mystified. Although I have yet to find answers, many questions have stock-piled itself naturally within its own world, whilst conjuring a life of its own.
IS THIS TOO MUCH OF A COINCIDENCE TO BE LEFT ALONE OR AM I THINKING TOO MUCH INTO THE MYSTERY OF THIS ENCOUNTER?
DID TIMELINES CONVERGE TO WHERE THE FUTURE CAME TO PAST… JUST TO GIFT TO ME… A TASTE OF WONDROUS FORESHADOWING?
But (guess what)… how interesting and synchronistically odd it is to know (now) that I am moving to Phoenix, Arizona at the end of this Summer 2021, exactly 10 years later from when that therapist first introduced herself to me, in claiming that she knew Mr. Joel Ayala Ayapana, an immigrant Filipino practicing Nurse who resides in Phoenix, Arizona. This chance encounter indeed happened back in November of 2011, yes, 10 years ago. And (funny) this experience with this therapist did not come back to me from memory until this exact very day on 8/20/2021, the day that I was offered a job in Phoenix by the Phoenix VA. For a while now, this memory hasn’t even crossed my mind, until I started to really realize that my life is about to change significantly, in now knowing for a fact that I am about to move to Phoenix, Arizona.
In many ways, in reflecting upon that moment, was this woman therapist an Angel, reconfirming the FORSHADOWING of what was yet to come? Honestly, this might very well be the case. In other aspects and perspectives, this may not be the case, at all! But, seriously, who knows?
ONLY GOD COULD EVER KNOW.”

MY DISCLAIMER: This posting is not meant to portray any notion of judgement nor condemnation towards any-one-soul in particular, but rather possesses the sincere intention with humility to share my testimony from what I’ve discovered through GOD’S GRACE, the Revelations blessed upon to me to Truth and Clarity. And this literal Knowing, per say, explains the very foundations of what lies behind the nature of this Earth Realm Reality (2 Corinthians 4:4). As once a former New Age influencer, myself, I have encountered the many ways in how vulnerable seekers of truth can be so easily led astray from the mark to salvation, from such Revelations to the path of that Truth. Thus, the main aim of this broadcast lies upon, not only placing righteous judgement (John 7:24, ESV), but in also exposing the nefarious agenda of the demon and the fallen ones, from amidst its own deceptive hierarchy (Ephesians 5:11). This is all done intentionally for the sake and sincerity of producing more encouraging and Divinely-influenced outcomes under the Guidance and Grace of the Holy Spirit, which can be derived and attributed to the actual act of human parasitic deliverance, in thus freeing ourselves from the principalities of darkness (Ephesians 6:12). From this, such entities and ideologies shall hold no dominion nor authority over the POWER AND GLORY AND GRACE OF THE ALMIGHTY. Only our… GOD (THE MOST HIGH)… holds that proper AUTHORITY! This is done in obedience and in loyalty for the GLORY OF GOD (THE ONE TRUE GOD). In Yahushua’s Name ~Amen
