It could be a cloud in the shape of a loved one's face or an extremely relevant song playing on the radio at the exact time of a friend's death--if we allow ourselves to stop, look, and listen, we can identify what spiritual teacher Ann Bolinger-McQuade calls personal oracles. And when we tune into these subtle messages from Spirit, we will discover guidance for navigating life's most trying situations. In this illuminating book, readers will learn that the universe is constantly conspiring in our favor and is ready to lend a helping hand when we need it most--if only we can look closely andopen our hearts to thedivine messagesthat are on display around us. Sharing stories of divine inspiration from her own life, as well as the lives of others (many of them well-known historical or contemporary figures), McQuade shows readers how: A PAIROFSPARROWSSAVEAMAN'SLIFE: JournalistByron Pitts narrowly escaped being hit by a car and saw a couple birds circling in front of him.

Review quote

""Everyday Oracles" will leave you with a renewed faith in life's possibilities." --Lisa Hopper, author of "In the Wake of a Dream" "In "Everyday Oracles," Ann Bolinger-McQuade teaches us to look with new eyes at the miracles that surround us. This book is truly a gift--one to be read and passed on." --Donna Fontanarose Rabuck, Ph.D., Director, Center for the Sacred Feminine "Life is an intimate embrace in which all things generously reveal their hidden goodness. In "Everyday Oracles," Ann Bolinger-McQuade eagerly shares her experiences of life's awakened presence in its many signs, colors, and voices. It is a privilege to walk together on the path of her journey, and awaken to the power and gentleness of the mind with its dreams and visions. Take this walk and you will find beauty appearing all around you, and a new sense of discovery within." --Dr. David N. Russell, Ph.D., D.Sc., author of "Healthy Solutions: A Guide to Simple Healing and Healthy Wisdom" "Ann Bolinger-McQuade is a divine messenger. Her book shows us the interconnectedness of all beings. She helps us find the magic of our personal oracles and shows us how to live happier, more inspired lives. A must read." --Tina Powers, psychic medium and author of "Reporting for the Other Side" "Ann Bolinger-McQuade's book is so important because our culture has lost the ability to interpret personal oracles that can be seen and found everywhere, especially in nature. "Everyday Oracles "reminds us that we are part of a living world that speaks to us unceasingly, if we but learn to see and listen." --Lisa Thiel, visionary artist, singer, and songwriter "If you found "Everyday Oracles "or it found you, then pick it up and read it. You will walk away with some kind of message that speaks to you." --Liza M. Wiemer, author of "Extraordinary Guidance: How to Connect with Your Spiritual Guides"show more

About Ann Bolinger-mcquade

Ann Bolinger-McQuade has always sensed the world as alive, nurturing, and filled with personal oracles -- concepts deeply seeded in her Native American ancestry. Before becoming a full-time writer in 1999, then a monthly columnist, regular radio show guest, lecturer, and workshop facilitator, she worked in advertising and sales, writing for a trade publication in the fashion industry and later owning a small business in California. Personal oracles have been playing a major role in Ann's life for almost three decades. She fully recognized them after her diagnosis of breast cancer. They have guided and offered comfort to her as she dealt with the loss of her father, the passing of a close friend, and the death of a beloved animal companion. While Bolinger-McQuade struggled with each of these challenges, she ultimately was able to move forward with peace in her heart. Personal oracles continue to assist her on a daily basis.Ann has been part of the spiritual communities of Texas, Arizona, and New Mexico for the past three decades. Before his death in 2009, Native American Elder Richard Deertrack of the Taos Pueblo honoredAnn in a sacred ceremony. Deertrack supported her vision to expand the consciousness of an interconnected universe through the awareness of personal oracles. Anndivides her time between Tucson, AZ and Taos, NM with her husband, two dogs, and one cat, all of whom she adores."show more
