Singer-songwriter Joy Villa delivers a contagious exuberance with every song she sings.
Los Angeles, California, October 10, 2016 (Newswire.com) - Joy Villa is a singer-songwriter whose music is pop rock with a little bit of a flair for the 90s and a hip-hop influence. She says learning Scientology helped her reach higher than she ever thought possible.
Villa found Scientology at a dark time in her life.
“Being an artist you attract certain people around you that may pretend like they want to do you good, but they actually want to do you harm,” she says.
Although she couldn’t put her finger on what was going on, she sensed certain relationships were bringing her down. “I was dating a guy who was just no good. I had friends around me that were no good.”
Her first Scientology course was called Overcoming Ups and Downs in Life. “That changed my life,” she says. “Immediately I started making leaps and bounds in my artwork and the types of people I was attracting. It seemed like it went from dark to light almost instantly.”
As she progressed in her Scientology training, she found she had regained her positive attitude. “I was getting more yeses instead of nos,” she says. “I had that confidence that I was looking for.”
It also made a huge difference in another aspect of her life.
“I began to have a deeper relationship with my dad,” she says. “I began to know him in a way that I didn’t think was possible. Even towards the end of his life, I was there for him. And that was the most special thing. That was a gift that Scientology gave me.”
Villa pursues her goals with enthusiasm and flair. “If there’s a stage, I want to jump on there—I want to share art. I want to communicate with people,” she says. Her purpose is to reach as many people as she can with the message that they can be better and that art is a way to heal the world.
“Now, I feel like there’s nothing I can’t tackle,” says Villa. “Scientology gave me tools to survive, tools to create, and that’s what I feel like—a creative person who is full of power and there is no stopping me.”
