Aaron Rodgers is could be the best quarterback of all-time, however he’s made himself appear like an absolute idiot each time he’s opened his mouth over the past two-plus years. Rodgers is the man who deliberately misled the media over his vaccination standing, unfold disinformation about Covid, always talked on nationwide media about being the sufferer of cancel tradition, and for some motive advised 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 mentioned 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 seashore along with his mates (which Rodgers referred to as among the best 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 discuss a lot about psychological well being. Marshawn Lynch had a basic retirement press convention speaking about taking good care of your mentals. We discuss 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 easy methods to unconditionally love myself. It’s solely in that unconditional self love that I’m actually capable of unconditionally love others. What higher solution 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 received’t care about what you say till they know the way a lot you care.
Rodgers mentioned taking ayahuasca felt like having “100 completely different arms on my physique.” The unintended effects of taking it embrace shedding management of your bowels and throwing up in every single place, which Marcus mentioned just isn’t inaccurate. In case you are an Aaron Rodgers hater, no less than that’s a cheerful visible.
Whereas Rodgers spews plenty of rubbish, having a psychedelic expertise in an try to enhance one’s psychological well being is without doubt one of the extra cheap issues he’s mentioned lately. He would possibly have to have one other mind-altering journey this 12 months with out Davante Adams round. For as useful as psychedelics may be some individuals, throwing passes to arguably the most effective large receiver within the league is a bit more sensible in the event you’re an NFL quarterback.
