Aaron Rodgers has seen the other side and no longer fears death.
The Green Bay Packers quarterback has emerged from the Green Bay Packers’ bye week and it sounds like he had a good time.
Rodgers made his weekly appearance on The Pat McAfee Show Tuesday and was prompted with the question by former teammate A.J. Hawk if he fears death.
“I definitely had the fear of death,” Rodgers said.
“Ayahuasca and psilocybin actually really helped me with that and alleviated a lot of the stress around the idea of needing to accomplish things before I actually die and has kinda taken away some of that fear,” Rodgers said. “I think when you’ve seen the other side, it makes the idea of death more of a passage and less of an ending.”

His answer prompted McAfee to throw in a follow-up question.
“Hold on,” McAfee abruptly said. “Did you just say ayahuasca makes you see the other side? You just said you saw death, is that what I just heard there?”
“Well you definitely see the other side, yeah,” Rodgers answered definitively. “I’m not talking about life and death, I’m talking about the veil between the seen world and the unseen world.”
During this past offseason, Rodgers was an open book as he revealed that he has used the plant-based psychedelic ayahuasca in South America on multiple occasions. Back in September, he fired back at others describing ayahuasca as a drug because it’s made from a plant.
Ayahuasca is banned in the United States and contains DMT, a Schedule I substance.
For Rodgers and the Packers, the team is getting set to face the Los Angeles Rams and Baker Mayfield as the starter. For the last three seasons, the Packers have made the playoffs. That looks to come to an end in 2022 with the Packers sitting at 5-8 and in third place in the NFC North.
Rodgers has struggled more this season compared in campaigns past, suffering a finger and a rib injury while throwing for 2,864 passing yards, 22 touchdowns and nine interceptions.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
