Ayahuasca Event and His Addiction to Washing Dishes: It’s a ‘Meditative’ song.
In an interview with Men’s Health, Aaron Rodgers discussed his psychedelic drug use.
Aaron Rodgers claims to have felt a “deeper love” for himself while using ayahuasca, a psychedelic drink he has promoted in recent months.
In the January/February issue of Men’s Health, the Green Bay Packers quarterback revealed that he took part in a three-night ceremony earlier this year in which he drank the tea while being guided by a shaman.
“There is a great deal of trust. “I think surrender is another good word,” Rodgers told the magazine. “You must surrender to the master plant teacher that is ayahuasca, and there is naturally some fear associated with that.
He went on: “I was still a little resistant on night one, but by night two, I had fully surrendered to the process and the master teacher, and she was benevolent in her lessons. When you have a deeper love for yourself, there is a lot of overall happiness. It allows you to give and receive love more effectively and interact with others with less judgement and projection. So that’s something I’ve been focusing on.
“The 39-year-old has previously spoken about his use of ayahuasca, most notably on The Pat McAfee Show, where he recently stated that the drug helped him overcome a “major fear of death.”
While Rodgers believes that “ayahuasca is not a drug,” the Alcohol and Drug Foundation classifies it as a “plant-based psychedelic” that can alter a person’s thinking, sense of time, and emotions. According to Double Blind, ayahuasca contains the active ingredient N, N-Dimethyltryptamine (DMT), a Schedule I drug.
In an interview with Men’s Health, Rodgers revealed that one of his favourite activities off the field is washing dishes.
“I think meditation can get skewed at times, like you have to go into some kind of trance and start om-ing or whatever,” he explained.
