Format: Paperback
This 193 page book is from 2009/2010. It is about the lessons our author learned as a Navy SEAL, especially the lessons using his well-honed intuition. Michael speaks of how accessing that intuition saved his life and also saved lives of others who have learned to access it. This book is dedicated to "all UDT/SEAL Warriors Past, Present and Future."

Former Navy SEALS will likely LOVE this book, because Michael speaks of the 24 years he spent in the SEALS and the training and experiences he had. Michael was stationed in turbulent places such as Iraq and in places all over the world. I would say the book is about 50 % SEAL experience (including his similar work as an independent security contractor) and about 50 % intuition and other related skills. The "other" might amaze many of you.

Michael explains a little about many of the "other" intuitive-related skills he developed. He mentions martial arts training and how it helped him to improve his mind/energy balance and focus. He speaks of the telepathic abilities he developed, where he could not only read the minds of team members, but also those of enemies. He speaks of an Out-of-Body experience (OBE), of astral projection (being able to see things as if you were in another place), of meditation (and how to do it). He talks about the Law of Attraction (how we attract what we put our attention and energy on), including how synchronistic events interplay in our lives. Michael explains a little about the Mayan culture, the 2012 alignment and energy changes, ancient cultures and beliefs, past lives, Atlantis and Lemuria, angels, ascended masters, and guides, the importance of NeuroLinguistic Programming (NLP) (self programming), and getting your ego under control.

"The Intuitive Warrior: Lessons From A Navy SEAL On Unleashing Your Hidden Potential" by Michael Jaco was nothing like what I expected. I was surprised, and also very glad that I read this book. I hope others will read it and really think about the messages that Jaco shares. Again, I did not expect to hear a former SEAL discussing love, higher powers, intuition the way he does, spiritual thoughts, ancient knowledge from civilizations such as the Mayans, and the Law of Attraction. Nor did I expect to find quotations and references to Eckhart Tolle, Esther and Jerry Hicks, and the movie "What the Bleep Do We Know?" But then, I realize, why should I be surprised? I myself am a former Army paratrooper and sniper, and I'm familiar with all of those references, and also really enjoyed Jaco's perspectives, stories, and guidance in this book. It's just not the kind of reading most people would most likely expect coming from a former SEAL, with the way our culture presents them as the ultimate tough guys, shoot em all, types.

Yes, they are tough guys, and some of the stories in this book about the training proves that. I was reminded of my time doing log drills, which in no way equaled the log drills those going through SEAL training had to perform, but at least it gave me first hand perspective of just how tough the training was, and I did remember how the mind is what helped me get through some of the toughest physical challenges thrown at me in the Army, and it helped me relate to Jaco and his message even stronger.

However, you do not need to be former military to gain from reading this book. Jaco wrote it so non-military could learn from his military experiences.

BOOK REVIEW - While I was traveling recently, I had the opportunity to read Michael Jaco's book THE INTUITIVE WARRIOR. It was, in fact, lent to me by a friend in a Tier One Unit. This book is must reading for anyone who goes in harm's way, or trains others who go in harm's way, or those who want to understand those who volunteer to go in harm's way on behalf of others.


Why? One of the most elusive skill-sets to identify and train for those who go in harm's way is the "combat intuition" or "street smarts" or "situational awareness" that's described in the literature. It's most often described as something you only get after experience, and yes, that can be true. But speeding up the process is something that can be done, and teaching it to people who don't have it (yet) is also something that can be done. I've spent a significant portion of the last twenty years doing similar work in applying neural-based training to training programs for people who work under life-threatening stress, and I know it can be done.

And Michael Jaco has been doing it. THE INTUITIVE WARRIOR provides a guided tour through Michael's own journey of discovery about his own combat intuition, honed in the extraordinary forge of Navy SEAL training and operations, and how he discovered ways to train and pass that knowledge on. He's tested his concepts first hand on the battlefield and brought back that tested knowledge. He illustrates his concepts with first hand experiences throughout the book, and the reader will come to understand how Jaco's performance, honed by these concepts, became legendary within the SEAL community

In some ways, this book reminds me of a seminal work in mental training: THE WARRIOR'S EDGE, by Alexander, Groller, and Morris.
