I was listening to one of the French radio stations the other day and they were talking about Baba Vanga, a clairvoyant and herbalist who spent most of her life in the Rupite area in the Kozhuh mountains in Bulgaria. (You may want to do a Google search.)

Baba Vanga was born in 1911. Her real name was Vangelia Pandeva Dimitrova. She was a premature baby and as a child she started to demonstrate her gifts. She loved playing at “healing”, prescribing herbs to her friends who pretended to be sick. Her mother died when she was very young and her father later remarried.

When she was approximately 12, a windstorm threw her into a field and when she was found, her face and eyes were covered in sand and dirt. This experience blinded her. She spent 3 years in a school for the blind but when her stepmother died, she had to return to her family.

In 1942 she married and she and her husband moved to Petrich where she soon became well known. Vanga died in 1996 from breast cancer. Shortly before she died, she apparently said that a ten-year-old blind girl living in France was to inherit her gift.

Vanga was illiterate or semi-literate and never wrote any books, but many have been written about her. She claimed that she could see the lives of the people standing in front of her. She also said that though she could see their lives, she couldn’t change anything. She also claimed that invisible creatures gave her the extraordinary abilities.

It is said that about 80% of her past predictions came to be true. She attracted a large following in Russia. You can see an excerpt of A Russian documentary about her; http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/worldviews/wp/2012/11/08/fair-warning-bulgarian-prophet-says-obama-will-be-americas-last-president/

Here are some predictions she made:

The break-up of the Soviet Union, the Chernobyl disaster, the date of Stalin’s death (spent 6 months in jail because of this), the sinking of the Russian submarine Kursk, and Topalov’s victory in the world chess tournament,

Vanga predicted the 9/11 terrorist attacks in the United States, when she said that American brothers would fall under attacks of birds of steel. Vanga prophesied the perestroika in the USSR, the death of Princess Diana and thousands of happenings in people’s personal life.

Vanga incorrectly predicted that the 1994 World Cup soccer final would be played between “two teams beginning with B”. One finalist was Brazil, but Bulgaria was eliminated by Italy in the semifinals.

Baba Vanga also prophesied that the 44th US president would be black and that he would be the last American president.

Here are some more, by year:

2010 – World War III. War will begin in November 2010 and end in October 2014. War will begin as usual, then nuclear weapons will be used, and then chemical weapons.
