Will Smith predicted losing his career during an ayahuasca hallucination. The 53-year-old actor admitted he was scared for his career in an interview filmed months before he struck Chris Rock at the Oscars over a joke the comedian made about his wife Jada Pinkett Smith, and the fear came while he was under the influence of the psychoactive herbal drink. The vision then changed as he heard his daughter Willow, 21, yelling out: “Daddy, help me! Daddy! How come you won’t help me?”
The “Bad Boys” actor added: “I’m like, ‘I don’t see you, baby.’ The shaman is like, ‘Relax, relax, relax.’ And she tells me, ‘Sit up’.
“Then slowly I stopped caring about my money, I just wanted to get to Willow… I stopped caring about my house. I stopped caring about my career. I get to the point where I settled down, and the voice is still at 100 per cent, I still hear Willow screaming, my money is still flying away, but I’m (taking deep breaths) and I’m totally calm, even though there’s hell going on in my mind. Smith described the incident as “the individual most hellish psychological experience of my whole life”.
He insisted: “You’re not hallucinating. It’s like both realities are 100 percent present. So you know you’re in this room. You’re sitting in the room. You don’t lose sight. It’s not, like, superimposed on this reality. It’s totally separate,” he said. Meanwhile, he noted that the experience made him realise that he can handle “anything that happens” in his life.
He said: “I can handle any person 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.
