When asked the following question, Adrian Allotey, Owner of You Are Not Alone Elder Care LLC and Certified End of Life Doula, responded as such.
Q: What led you to become a death doula?
A: I am a spiritual person by nature and death is a spiritual experience. For years, I denied my supernatural gifts. As an energy worker/healer and a level 2 reiki practitioner who is knowledgeable about essential oils and crystals amongst other alternative modalities, I came into myself and found that the death arena was the place for me to share my gifts with the world.
It all began with me volunteering for a hospice who understood how these gifts and skills could make a difference in the final moments, days, weeks and months of a person’s life. I decided to become a death doula and became certified as such. It was the right decision for me.
