This week I talked with Dr. Dain Heer, who authored the bestselling book Being You, Changing the World, which provides the tools and inspiration for uncovering the real you, which in turn sparks new ideas, creates success and increases happiness and well-being. Dain is an international speaker, author and facilitator of advanced workshops in "Access Consciousness" worldwide. His unique and transforming points of view on change, bodies, sex and relationships transcend everything currently being taught. He believes that having the courage to be different can generate more success, heal your health, create more fulfilling relationships and even improve your financial situation.
I talked to Dain about his book and his spin on LGBT issues. When asked what he would like to see happen for LGBT equality in the next few years, he stated:
What I would love to see is our LGBT community wake up and recognize that we are truly creating change in the world. You know, the Supreme Court decision is one indication of that, and it's a large indication because of its impact in the United States. What I would like to see is marriage equality in every state, but also I would like to see it around the world. You know, there are many countries having this conversation, and I think marriage equality is just one of the aspects of what is actually possible, because what I would like to see is us no longer having to hide us, whatever that is, and actually realize that we have a unique possibility for functioning beyond judgment. You know, what we can do is show everyone else, "Hey, you know what? I have lived the trials and travails of judgment that this reality throws at me. I'm not only surviving but I'm thriving." So what I would like to see is what the marriage possibility, what that has opened the door to, is actually spread to every other area of life, and we have so many ways in which there isn't equality -- you know, in the workplace and so many different things -- and I think what is possible is the unique perspective where it's like, "Hey, guys, I've lived it. You don't have to make yourself wrong anymore."
Dain Heer has authored eight books on the topics of embodiment, healing, money and relationships. His work is now in 121 countries, where he facilitates people to tap into and recognize their own abilities and empowers them to know they are the creators of their own life. Gaining global attention, Dain has appeared on Fox News, Gaiam TV and Great Day Houston and in The Collective Magazine, Natural Awakenings, Om Times and San Diego Living, among other media outlets.
