In this episode of The Gnostic Warrior, I have the honor of interviewing again former Navy SEAL Chief, Michael Jaco. Michael retired in December 2002 from the Navy and started his own training organization which educates participants in tactical awareness skills. Later he would go on to work as a CIA security operative for a decade in some of the most dangerous warzones in the world.
Today Michael is a trainer, philosopher and the author of “The Awakening of a Warrior: Past Lives of a Navy SEAL Remembered,” and "The Intuitive Warrior." His decades of experience as an elite warrior has give him the incredible ability to hone intuitive skills to not only survive, but to thrive in some of the most dangerous situations that anyone can encounter in our modern era.
In this podcast, Michael shares some of the secrets of a professional 35 year veteran Navy SEAL Team 6 Assault Team Operator, CIA security operative, master instructor and author on how to unleash your intuition. Radically change your life, health, wealth and personal relationships
Michael describes intuition or a knowing without knowing, as an ability that all humanity possesses. A gathering collective understanding or awakening of the potential this valuable inherent ability can bring us is the opening focus of this discussion.
He feels that an intuitive awakening can be the beginning of transforming humanity from one of collective fear to one of collective love and the opening of abilities within us that were once thought impossible or reserved for divine beings only. His goal is to help anyone to develop their own transformational intuitional abilities.
Join Michael Jaco in beautiful Lake Tahoe, California for a once in a lifetime 2-day event called "Unleashing Intuition." Visit the website to book your spot now @ Unleashingintuition.com.
Craig Williams LAC had written, "Within the esoteric atmosphere of the Cell, the desert gnostic has awakened the sacred primordial voice of the Soul, the Sacramental Vision. This elemental awakening manifests as a unique type of occult condensation activated by the heat of the inner praxis of the inhabitant.
The Sacramental Vision is in many ways a type of inner environment which radiates out of the corporeal into the exterior environment of the world, an esoteric reflection of the radiations of the inner sun of the Soul from deep within the caverns of the primordial mind. These solar resonances act as a type of occult echolocation uncovering the hidden essence of the Numinous in every aspect of the mundane landscape.
Once awakened, the devotee can walk within the desert of the mundane and discover the hidden sparks covered by layers of mirage and egoic confusion. The Devotee leaves the esoteric atmosphere of the Cell transformed and awakened, physically and mentally, and enters the desert of the world in a radically unassuming manner, the body and mind impregnated with a sacramental altar for the Soul, an inner sanctuary holding and protecting the awakened Sacramental Vision."
In this special Gnostic Warrior Podcast, Craig Williams and I discuss his new book, Entering the Desert. A book that was created for the modern initiate to help them enter into the immortal the gates of Gnosis.
In this podcast, Craig tells us what inspired him to go on a year long journey into the writer's cave to bring the Gnostic light to those great souls that need it in our modern era. He explains the “dark night of the soul”, “underworld of the unconsciousness”, and “Nightside realms” and how the reflect on how schools of psychology and the occult value these journeys into the Terra Incognito of the mind and Soul.
Craig says that it is important for the Building an Inner Sanctuary or Inner Temple which is crucial for the initiate to develop along his or her path. Especially in this hyper-connected world of technology and fast paced lifestyles. He also tells us why a guide or teacher on the journey into the dark pathways of the Soul. We also discuss what the meaning of the Cell is and how is it an important idea of Gnostic Isolation and its role in self-development.
Craig has undergraduate degrees in Religious Studies, Philosophy, and English Literature, and a Master’s Degree in Oriental Medicine. He currently lives in Austin, Texas, where he has a holistic medical practice specializing in Traditional Chinese Medicine, Acupuncture, and Ayurveda.
Here is the preface from Entering the Desert by Richard Rudgely:
“A number of qualifications are required of an author to achieve a true syncretic work of practical gnosis in our time. These are made manifest in Entering the Desert – a deep familiarity with the sacred literature of the various traditions drawn upon, a long-term practical knowledge of the same, and a hard, critical, and disciplined approach.
The prevailing zeitgeist, the psychic fragmentation of late liberalism with its over-emphasis on the individual, consumerism and other gratuitous needs is hardly the most conducive environment for spiritual pursuits. An antidote to this obsession with the surface of the individual is a journey to the Inner Self – toward the desert and away from both the marketplace and the commonplace.”
"I will give what I believe are some of the broad outlines of the system and the spiritual world and spiritual truths towards which I believe these celestial metaphors were intended to lead us – but once the basic outlines are grasped, I believe that the depths to which we can dive within the incredible sacred stories of humanity are literally without end, and that they will continue to reward deeper and deeper exploration and consideration, without ever exhausting their riches, for an entire lifetime (perhaps for many, many lifetimes)."
Those celestial words were from the infinite wisdom of expert stargazer, and author, David Mathisen who I have the please of interviewing in this episode of the Gnostic Warrior Radio Show and Podcast. David is the author of several books such as The Mathisen Corollary (2011), The Undying Stars (2014) and Star Myths of the World and how to interpret them, Volume One (2015),
Two (2016) and Three (2016).
In this podcast, David tells us how celestial realm is used a metaphor for the Invisible Realm, the Infinite Realm and there is an infinite connection to our higher self. He explains how the as above stars and planets are a type of visual teaching aid and alchemical connection to so below humans.
A type of spiritual Gnosis in which these associated myths point to an ancient system of spiritual knowledge that has been passed down to us through the Ages.

In this episode of the Gnostic Warrior Radio Show and Podcast I interview the Executive Director of the Flow Genome Project and author of the new best-seller, Stealing Fire, Jamie Wheal.
He is one of the world's most innovative experts on the neuro-physiology of human performance and he has worked with top athletes, scientists, artists, business professionals, and Fortune 500 companies to help map the genome of the peak-performance state known as Flow.
Flow is when you reach optimal states of consciousness where you are totally absorbed in your task, time flies where you feel and perform your best. It’s the moment of total absorption. Time speeds up or slows down like a freeze-frame effect. Mental and physical ability go through roof, and the brain takes in more information per second, processing it more deeply."
Jamie explains how people are using flow and these rare and controversial states of consciousness to solve critical challenges and outperform the competition. His goal is a revolution of consciousness that can be spread across the world via open source sharing so we can all lead richer, more productive, more satisfying lives.
His book, Stealing Fire is for the Prometheans of the World, AKA the Fire Stealers--crazy ones, misfits, rebels and trouble-makers--this book is about you and your crew. Complete with a forgotten origin story dating back to the mists of prehistory, filled with wild-ass anecdotes ranging from the CIA and DARPA, to Burning Man and Biohackers, if you already know what you’re part of, this is your manifesto, your tribal history, and your user manual, all in one.
In this episode of the Gnostic Warrior Radio Show and Podcast, I interview author, Peter Kling. Peter is the author of Letters to Earth: You Can Survive Armageddon! A book Kling had written where he uses science and life experience to unlock the Secrets in the Scriptures, which the Church has kept hidden for over two thousand years. (more…)
"The pyramid-cultures all built “Triptych” three-door temples, with the door in the middle wider and taller than the two flanking it. The abundant occurrence of the Triptych across the ancient world is not a random coincidence. The Triptych represents more than merely an architectural element; the Triptych is the chief symbol of an advanced Universal Religion that was once shared globally in Antiquity, mainly by the pyramid cultures.

"Cease to allow the mind which is your Womb to be impregnated by false media that only wishes to birth conceptions from your energy that it will continue to feed off and abuse. Return to the adventure of the Ancients which is you in exploration of yourself inside out. Orientate yourself with the Stars and learn the transmigration of your Ancestors in the celestial boat and then you will know fully who you are. (more…)
"At the centre of ancient Gnosticism is the experience of gnosis; a silent knowing of God that gives rise to an unshakeable faith in the essential goodness of existence. With the experience of gnosis comes the discovery of the ‘Christ within’. This is our spiritual essence that is one with God.
In the East it is called the atman or buddha-nature. I call it the 'deep self'. It is our deepest being which is one with all beings. With the knowledge that all is one comes the experience of all-encompassing love the Gnostics call agape. I call it ‘big love’, because it is so very big.
It is an exquisite feeling that reaches right down into the body. It’s a love so strong it can sustain us through the horrors of life. It is a love so unconditional we can even love our enemies." (more…)
