Will Smith Reveals That After Taking A Psychedelic Drug He Envisioned Himself Losing His Career, Prior To Oscars Slap!



We all know that Will Smith is a man of many talents from film, television and music but who knew that he could actually see the future!

While appearing in a previously taped and newly released episode of David Letterman’s show, “My Next Guest Needs No Introduction” Will speaks on a vision he had after drinking the psychoactive brew ayahuasca where he explained it was, “the individual most ’hellish psychological experience of my life,” reports Today Show.

Will shares that he had taken two years off from work and went on a self spiritual journey and that during that time he had taken a psychedelic drug. ‘Ayahuasca,’ is described as being popular for its spritual and therapeutic qualities. He says that he used it a total of 14 times. “All of a sudden, it’s like I start seeing all of my money flying away.”

“And my house is flying away. And my career is going away,” he continued. “And I’m trying to, like, grab for my money and my career. My whole life is getting destroyed.”

David’s went on to ask if he was afraid of losing his career and money. Will went on to respond, “ It’s my fear.”

Will breaks down how his vision turned furthermore darker when he began to hear an angry voice began telling him, “This is what the f— it is. This is what the f— life is.”

He said he then heard the voice of his daughter screaming, “Daddy, help me! How come you won’t help me?”

Will says that the shaman overseeing the ceremony stepped in instructing him to relax.

As he began to take slow meditative breaths, “I still hear Willow screaming. I’m totally calm, even though there’s hell going on in my mind.”

“When I came out of it, I realized that anything that happens in my life, I can handle it,” he said. “I can handle any person that I lose, I can handle anything that goes wrong in my life, I can handle anything in my marriage. I can handle anything that this life has to offer me.”

Will went on to reflect on his career and childhood trauma and how he’s always felt like a coward and used the obsession of winning to overcome that. “I think the drive I had in my career to succeed with the life-or-death energy behind winning, I think it was fueled largely by a certain insecurity,” he said. “And the trauma of the insecurity, I think, made me have to win. Period.”

The father of three revealed that back in 2007 after wrapping up the film “I Am Legend,” he went a total of 14 days without talking to, “see the madness of what was going on inside (his) head.”

“I had been to the top of all material mountains,” he said. “I wanted to be the best but I correlated being the best with having the love in my life that would make me feel safe.”

“I think it’s the natural journey of humanity, when we realize that the material world is completely, utterly and totally incapable of sustaining our happiness.”

Will explains that his mindset has now changed and that he views things as temporary in knowing that anything can be taken away from you.
