n 1986, when a strong intuitive hunch prompted Ann Bolinger-McQuade to get a mammogram, she followed its guidance only to discover she had breast cancer.  Fortunately, the cancer was confined and considered, “miniscule” and Ann was completely healed.  This prompted her to look deeper into what she calls “personal oracles.”

I spoke with Ann about her journey into understanding the universal implications of knowing our personal oracles and about her book which delves beautifully into the language the Universe speaks and how we can learn to tune in to its messages.

Note: Please excuse the invasive beeps toward the end of the interview.  Although Ann and I were convinced there may have been some “oracle-like” significance to the interruptions, they were annoying nonetheless…so much for modern technology!

More about Ann Bolinger-McQuade

Ann Bolinger-McQuade is a regular contributor to magazines, a popular workshop facilitator and radio talk show guest. Ann shares her curiosity and passion for discovering the hidden obvious and encourages us to tune into the guidance and support that surrounds us all.

Bolinger-Mcquade’s perspective of the world as alive, nurturing and filled with personal oracles springs naturally from her Native American ancestry. As a child growing up in Kansas she was intrigued with the idea of having Native American ancestors, but never considered her heritage relevant to her life.

Her ancestral imprints began to emerge when a series of personal events that were triggered by her breast cancer diagnosis sent her hurling onto what she describes as an invisible moving sidewalk. (Imagine the people carriers in airports.) She believes that at certain times we all land on such a sidewalk, designed to carry us to a specific destination. This particular sidewalk transported her to a place where oracles that were hiding in plain sight seemed to magically appear at precisely the right time.

Ann coined the term personal oracles to describe those mysterious messages that guide and often comfort us, and in so doing illuminate an interconnected world that is tuned in and available to us at all times.

Ann makes her home in Tucson and Taos with the love of her life — her husband Kenneth — and her dogs Rusty and Pandora and a cat named Moon Boy. For the many blessings in her life she gives thanks.

EVERYDAY ORACLES, the foundation of her series of personal oracle books, is now available from Tarcher Penguin. Check out her monthly personal oracle columns online at
