Aaron Rodgers is may be the best quarterback of all-time, however he’s made himself seem like an absolute idiot each time he’s opened his mouth during the last two-plus years. Rodgers is the man who deliberately misled the media over his vaccination standing, unfold disinformation about Covid, consistently talked on nationwide media about being the sufferer of cancel tradition, and for some purpose instructed the entire world he likes to place oil in his butt. It goes with out saying that it’s necessary to have a wholesome quantity of skepticism each time he speaks right into a microphone.
Rodgers did one other interview this week, and talked about how he had arguably the 2 greatest seasons of his profession in his late ‘30s. Rodgers stated the key to his success a psychedelic expertise with the ayahuasca plant that led to him having back-to-back MVP seasons in 2020 and 2021.
Rodgers appeared on the Aubrey Marcus podcast and talked about his expertise with psychedelics, from taking magic mushrooms on the seaside along with his associates (which Rodgers known as among the finest days of his life) to his expertise ingesting ayahuasca. Right here’s a clip from the interview:
Rodgers talks about going to Machu Picchu with ex-girlfriend Danica Patrick simply earlier than the beginning of the pandemic. After climbing the mountain, Rodgers took ayahuasca and had a robust psychedelic expertise.
Rodgers talked about how psychedelics helped his psychological well being:
We speak a lot about psychological well being. Marshawn Lynch had a traditional retirement press convention speaking about taking good care of your mentals. We speak a lot about psychological well being, and to me one of many core tenants of your psychological well being is self love. That’s what ayahuasca did for me. It helped me see the best way to unconditionally love myself. It’s solely in that unconditional self love that I’m actually in a position to unconditionally love others. What higher option to work on my psychological well being than to have an expertise like that. The best present I can provide my teammates is to point out up and be somebody who can mannequin unconditional like to them. Clearly it’s necessary I play properly and present up and lead all that stuff. However they gained’t care about what you say till they know the way a lot you care.
Rodgers stated taking ayahuasca felt like having “100 totally different palms on my physique.” The unwanted side effects of taking it embody shedding management of your bowels and throwing up in all places, which Marcus stated will not be inaccurate. In case you are an Aaron Rodgers hater, not less than that’s a cheerful visible.
Whereas Rodgers spews loads of rubbish, having a psychedelic expertise in an try to enhance one’s psychological well being is among the extra affordable issues he’s stated lately. He would possibly must have one other mind-altering journey this yr with out Davante Adams round. For as useful as psychedelics will be some individuals, throwing passes to arguably the most effective extensive receiver within the league is a bit more sensible in case you’re an NFL quarterback.
