There is a wide range of people who have used psychedelics and they include some of the greatest people on Earth. The majority of them claim that the use of psychedelics was a very important step to where they are today or what they achieved in their lifetimes.
The first and one of the greatest examples is Steve Jobs. We all know that Steve Jobs was able to accomplish nothing short of greatness in his life time. You are probably using an apple device yourself. Steve Jobs reports that his use of LSD early in his career was one of the most important learning experience of his life. Steve Wozniak, the co-founder of apple also experimented with LSD early on in his career.
"Taking LSD was a profound experience, one of the most important things in my life. LSD shows you that there's another side to the coin, and you can’t remember it when it wears off, but you know it. It reinforced my sense of what was important—creating great things instead of making money, putting things back into the stream of history and of human consciousness as much as I could." – Steve Jobs.
There is more info on his LSD experiences in his biography by Walter Isaacson's. I think this is where the inspiration to micro dose LSD by silicon valley entrepreneurs stems from.
Lindsay Lohan had many issues in the past in her career. She went to the Amazon to experience ayahuasca and said that this transformed her life. She said the ayahuasca experience was able to help her deal with her past. She also claims that she saw her birth and death which is very interesting and many ayahuasca users have similar experiences. Lindsay fulfills her passion now with meditation and cryotherapy. Cryotherapy is putting your body in liquid nitrogen for a wide range of health benefits. It is amazing how her ayahuasca experience was able to turn her life 360 degrees.
At first, I knew Joe Rogan only from him being the host of Fear Factor and a commentator for the UFC. After watching his very intriguing podcasts I found out that Joe is not just some meathead. He is actually very conscious and is a very funny stand-up comedian. Joe has smoked DMT multiple times. He says after his DMT experiences he was able to look at his life from an outside perspective and get rid of the bullshit he was doing unconsciously. DMT is the active hallucinogen in ayahuasca and some experiences overlap, all though DMT lasts only around 10-15 minutes, while ayahuasca is more like 4-6 hours. His podcasts are very interesting and he has many talks with a wide range of people on the benefits of psychedelics.
Dan hardy is a UFC fighter. He has done ayahuasca and mushrooms multiple times. He said that his ayahuasca experience was very profound and very intense. He uses psychedelics to connect with himself and to connect with nature. His ayahuasca ceremonies were very intense and he said he was able to release a lot of negative energy he had stored deep within him. He also says that in one of his ceremonies he saw a wolf sitting next to him. He said this wolf looked and felt so real, to the point that he was able to pet the wolf, feel its fur and actually feel the oil from the wolf’s fur on his skin.
Elliott Hulse is an expert on in strength training. He is very popular on YouTube and does more than just teach people how to lift weights. He also gives advice on general areas of life and he teaches multiple techniques to release repressed emotions through the physical body. Elliott has done ayahuasca before and he relates his ayahuasca experience to meditation and something called bio-energetics. Bio-energetics is essentially a way to release deep emotions by moving the body in a certain way and breathing in a certain way. Elliott describes the effects of his ayahuasca ceremonies being very similar to the results of bio-energetics but that it takes years of bioenergetics to get a similar result that a few ceremonies of ayahuasca can have. Checkout his interview on London Real. Even the host of London Real, Brian Rose, has done ayahuasca and has said that ayahuasca transformed his life in so many ways.
Bill Gates is one of the most successful entrepreneurs of our time and one the largest philanthropists in the world. Not much is known about his experimentations with psychedelics and he does not talk about it openly but in an interview with playboy magazine it was confirmed that he did experiment with psychedelics in his youth.
The Beatles are a very famous music band and are widely known not only for their music but also for their experimentation with psychedelics.
"John and I had decided that Paul and Ringo had to have acid, because we couldn't relate to them any more. Not just on the one level - we couldn't relate to them on any level, because acid had changed us so much. It was such a mammoth experience that it was unexplainable: it was something that had to be experienced, because you could spend the rest of your life trying to explain what it made you feel and think."
This is just a handful of great people who had profound, life-changing experiences with the use of psychedelics. The list goes on and there is an ernormous number of great people throughout history that used psychedelics to make positive changes in their lives. All these stories of these successful people using psychedelics makes me think why there is a large negative cloud associated with psychedelics and why they are illegal in most countries. For me and from my experiences with ayahuasca, mushrooms and other psychedelics, I can definitely say that my life has changed drastically and has opened me up to things in this world I would have never imagined.
