Aaron Rodgers says the secret to his recent NFL dominance is a psychedelic experience in South America…claiming the ayahuasca plant has helped him improve his mental health and have the “best season of my career”.
Ayahuasca – which contains DMT – has been used socially and medicinally for centuries…and some users credit the herbal infusion with spiritual healing.
The Super Bowl champion says it’s no coincidence that he returned from South America and won his next two MVP awards in 2020 and 2021… and speaks out to change negative stereotypes around the use of ayahuasca.
“I think there are so many myths and rumors about it,” Rodgers said on the “Aubrey Marcus Podcast.”
“The fear around it is you’re going to fuck off, it’s just a big puke fest…but the negative frame of it is that it’s about the experience, not the experience. ‘deep, meaningful, and crazy spirit – expanding the possibilities and also the deep self-love and healing that can happen on the other side.’
Rodgers says his intention for the first experiment was to find out what pure love looks like…and it worked.
“I had a magical experience of feeling a hundred different hands on my body giving me a blessing of love and forgiveness for myself and gratitude for this lifetime from what seemed to be my ancestors” , he added.
Rodgers, 38, says a previous experience with mushrooms led him to try ayahuasca…and because he did, he has a new outlook on life.
“To be much freer at work, as a leader, as a teammate, as a friend, as a lover. I really feel like this experience has paved the way for me to live the best season of my career.”
