Check Out Darin Dillinger’s Story

Today we’d like to introduce you to Darin Dillinger.

Alright, so thank you so much for sharing your story and insight with our readers. To kick things off, can you tell us a bit about how you got started?
My story isn’t anything but short LOL, I lost 400 pounds with exercise and diet 13 years ago. About four years ago, I had a knee replacement, three years ago I had an extra skin removal surgery on a TV show that ripped me open completely and I saw all my insides and went to a year of pure craziness where I saw my insides. Last year I had a heart attack. But I’ve always been able to find my joy by helping other people when I was about four years old, I developed or came into my abilities of psychic mediumship, and ever since then, I’ve been telling people things that I would never know.

I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle free, but so far would you say the journey have been a fairly smooth road?
I think the hardest struggle was when I was born at spinal meningitis both viral and bacterial. That led my family to treat me very differently, I was openly gay at an early age even though I was an out; everyone knew I was gay. I grew up in a small town in Ohio where there was about 63 in my graduating class. I stuck out like a sore thumb and try to commit suicide when I was in middle school. I gained 300 pounds and rounded up 545 pounds, they thought I had cancer when I was in my early 20s and I swear I never had it. After that, I lost 400 pounds. I lived in South Korea for a little bit which was a very trying experience then I came back to America got my master’s but didn’t know what to do. So I moved out to California and in this course of time, I have all those complications of medical stuff and now I’m trying to help other people realize their potential and true power just by helping them.

Alright, so let’s switch gears a bit and talk business. What should we know about your work?
Well, I do many things being inspirational and helping people with life coaching. My main job is I do birth charts and I do psychic medium work. My most prized possession is when I see people and give them help, I know that they can go on their way and do their thing. Mini thing sent me apart from not giving up to being super gay sometimes and always the saying how others are feeling. I don’t give up that easily and I don’t believe anyone should. I try to see both sides to every story even if it’s political which by means I’m not a fan. I just want to make people laugh and not take life so seriously.

Any advice for finding a mentor or networking in general?
Everybody is a mentor in your life everyone that you encounter whether that be an enemy or a best friend, is going to teach you something about yourself what you can put up with and what you should put up with. How confident you are so everyone you encounter is going to be your teacher.
