Rodgers detailed it on the “Aubrey Marcus Podcast”:

I don’t think it’s a coincidence. I really don’t. I don’t really believe in coincidences at this point. It’s the universe bringing things to happen when they’re supposed to happen.

There’s signs and synchronicities all around us at all times if we’re awake enough to see them and to take them in and to listen to our intuition when it’s speaking to us or pounding us in the head saying, ‘Hey dummy, wake up, this is what you’re supposed to be doing.’

In the podcast, Rodgers also reveals one of the “best days of (his) life” was a day that he took mushrooms with friends and he felt himself “merge with the ocean.”

He also detailed the experience of ayahuasca in 2020, saying he had a “magical experience with the sensation of feeling 100 different hands on my body, of love and forgiveness for myself, and gratitude for this life.”

After that, Rodgers went on to win league MVP in 2020, followed by another MVP in 2021.

Well, whatever gets the job done, Aaron.

Ayahuasca is a plant-based psychedelic, which can affect a person’s emotions, sense of time, feeling and reality.

From the Alcohol and Drug Foundation:

Ayahuasca is a decoction (concentrated liquid) made by prolonged heating or boiling of the Banisteriopsis caapi vine with the leaves of the Psychotria viridis shrub, although there can be a variety of other plants included in the decoction for different traditional purposes.

Ayahuasca is a liquid and is also known as huasca, yag?, Kamarampi, Huni, brew, daime, the tea, la purga.

Some side effects of taking ayahuasca include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea and anxiety.
