Hi, I'm so glad you are here!

I am a spiritual guide for the modern world, transformational business coach, and founder of Sacred Planet. I have a passion for creating unique & paradigm-shifting online events, designed to give people a profound experiential journey & connect with their deepest truths & soul’s purpose.

I earned my MBA from the University of Massachusetts and then worked in finance, business, & project management for over 15 years before leaving the corporate world to launch my global business, Sacred Planet. 

I’ve been a student & practitioner of indigenous wisdom and earth-based spirituality for more than 9 years, and I bring a uniquely balanced right brain / left brain approach.

I created Sacred Planet to support people in a process of un-learning the rules & regulations of modern mainstream society which no longer serve our highest good, so that we can reconnect with nature, with joy, and with the essential TRUTH that we hold deep within our hearts.

Here is what I deeply believe:

  • At the same time as we are witnessing the systems & structures of the old “modern” world crumbling around us, we’re collectively realizing there’s an amazing opportunity at this momentous time in history to rise up together & create something entirely new that the world has never seen before. 

  • Each person holds a unique key to something that the world deeply needs. When we open up to those gifts and talents, to those ways we are meant to change the world that no one else can do in exactly the same way, we each have the amazing potential to bring about a bright & vibrant future for humanity, and for all life on our Sacred Planet.

  • When a person connects with their life purpose — the absolute highest form of contribution that each of us can give, and also the most meaningful and fulfilling work that we can possibly do — we reach a state in which we simultaneously live a life without limits, and dynamically create the brighter world that we know is possible.

  • So many people are feeling inspired & called to create their own business, venture, community, or movement RIGHT NOW because we are feeling all of this so strongly and we know in our hearts we are here to make a difference.

My mission is to share, with as many people as possible, how to break free from everything that holds you back.

To awaken your deepest awareness to ways that you can heal yourself, and at the same time, heal the Earth.

To reveal to you your unlimited, boundless potential, and guide you in building a new life centered around the work that you are meant to do in the world.

Why? Because this is the only way that we can create a brighter, more compassionate, thriving, and sustainable future, for ourselves, our children and grandchildren, and all future generations of life on this beautiful planet.

I want this so that my young daughters can inherit a healthy, sustainable world. So that in their lifetimes, if they want, they can still visit the Amazon rainforest, see a real polar bear, or take a walk surrounded by massive redwood trees. So that these wonders of the planet will not just be myths and stories to them. So that they can breathe clean air and not live in fear of bombs or terrorism or war.

“The next decades—the active lifetimes of the people reading this and their children—will create the blueprint of the future Earth. We have a chance to be heroes if we have the courage to do what the [scientific] knowledge implies, or to be reviled as ignorant, selfish, and hugely destructive if we do not. This is a once-in-all-of-life’s-time opportunity, but we can only take advantage of it if we understand what a unique moment this is and how crucial it is to get things right, and to do it now. For our entire species, today matters. Our society’s current choices—and interpretations—might be the ones that reverberate for millennia, out of all proportion to the thought that went into them.”

~ Quote from The View from the Center of the Universe, by Primack and Abrams

The change must come from each person individually. From grassroots efforts. From small groups working together to create change far greater than the sum of their efforts.

And we must begin with each person doing the inner work to discover their deepest, most heartfelt truths. Each person must find their true purpose, the work in this world that they can't NOT do, the work that moves them from the depths of their heart and soul.

My Journey

Years ago, I was seeking a way to find happiness and fulfillment amid the hectic rush of modern life. I had struggled with anxiety and depression in the past, and I was determined to find a more fulfilling life. I went through quite a bit of soul-searching, researching and studying for years on topics including spirituality, human beings' purpose on the Earth, modern culture and its effect on our well-being, environment and climate change, intuition, indigenous wisdom, and how to live a more joyful life. This process started me on a true journey of the soul. Since then, the universe has opened up and helped me to connect with many special people and organizations that have changed my life in surprising and delightful ways.

I am so passionate about sharing what I have learned with you! It is amazingly important at this time for each of us to reconnect with exactly what is most fulfilling to our own heart and soul. Each person on Earth has a unique combination of talents, skills, and opportunities possessed by no one else in the world. We each hold a special key to unlocking a brighter future, for ourselves, other people, and the planet. When we live in this way, we find transformational new openings and opportunities. We optimize our infinite potential. Suddenly, we are contributing to the future we have always dreamed about. This heightened awareness and consciousness is exactly what the world needs most right now, from all of us.

Dreams are a universal language. Everyone dreams. Animals dream. The web of life tells its story in dreams. Dreams are critically important in the psychic life of individuals and the community. In many, maybe most, early cultures the days began with hearing the dreams of the community. You are invited to attend the monthly Global Dreaming Symposium, share your dreams in global community, receive guidance & inspiration from Dr. Tayria Ward and Jocelyn Mercado, and listen to the dreams of others to discern the collective messages we are receiving at this time on Earth. Learn more, see upcoming dates, & register here.

To your bold & visionary success, and to a bright & vibrant future for Mother Earth!

Love and blessings,

Jocelyn Mercado
