MIKE TYSON says he 'dies' during meditation and claims plant and animal medicine gives him 'divine feelings'.
The 54-year-old boxing legend is better known as the Baddest Man on the Planet.
Iron Mike is now a reformed man since some dark days during his heyday, building a cannabis empire alongside his business partner Alki David.
And he is a huge advocate for the medicinal benefits of the drug, and even smoked it before his comeback fight against Roy Jones Jr in November.
Tyson has also opened up on how taking toad venom played a part in his dramatic body transformation and ring return.
Now the chilled out former world champion has lifted the lid on how meditation helps him to get hold of his mind.
Speaking to Saquan Barkley, Tyson explained: “It’s just subconsciously visualising.
“You mean I mean you focus on the issue, with every iota and your molecules and everything.
“I pretty much die, when I am meditating and stuff, I am like a borderline showman.
“I use plant and animal medicine, I won’t say I have been enlightened. But I have had divine feelings.”

With a successful podcast, marijuana ranch and even Hollywood film cameos, Iron Mike appears to be living the good life again.
Gone are the days of lavish spending that saw him blow his estimated £320m fortune and file for bankruptcy back in 2003.
In fact, the American has even managed to become a millionaire again – having recovered from eye-watering debt of around £18m at one point.
His bank balance was boosted again after Triller revealed it raked in a whopping £60m for showing his comeback fight against Jones.
Now the veteran is looking to boost that and pull on the gloves again with another exhibition bout later this year.
He and Evander Holyfield are set to renew their historic rivalry with talks progressing for a sensational rematch.
SunSport were the first to reveal the pair – with a combined age of 112 – are in the process of negotiating a £200m-plus bout in Dubai.
Holyfield is already 2-0 up, thanks to his 1996 upset and Tyson's disgraceful disqualification a year later, where he sunk his teeth into the Real Deal’s ear.
But Iron Mike’s clash with Jones Jr inspired Holyfield, 58, to begin training for a return of his own, setting up a third fight with Tyson, 34-years in the making.
