The Blind Mystic | 5 Shocking Baba Vanga Predictions That Came True
Do correct predictions give you Goosebumps? Yes of course they do! Imagine someone predicting that you will die after few months and even tell you the exact month, wouldn't that be chilling?
Well, that’s what was done by Vangelia Gushterova better known as BABA VANGA (1911-1996), she was born on 31st January 1911 in Strumica, then in the Ottoman Empire, present day Macedonia but she lived most of her life in Bulgaria and was recognised worldwide for her ability to tell the future. Baba Vanga who was blind from the age of twelve, came to prominence when her major predictions started to become a reality.
To try and explain how Baba Vanga was so precise with her predictions Russian scientist Dr Negribetzkiy started researching to try to explain the phenomenon behind such supernatural powers and according to the statement given by him; almost 80% of Vanga’s predictions were true. Dr Negribetzkiy explained that Baba Vanga has the ability to hear and extract the information that other people cannot. He said that Baba Vanga had “sonar” in her brain.
Baba Vanga gave many predictions, like the start of World War II, the death date of Tsar Boris III, the Lebanon riots, the death of Indira Gandhi and the war in Nicaragua, etc...
Here we look at five of her most shocking predictions that came true.....
5Boxing Day TSUNAMI
In the 1950's one of the most shocking predictions made by Baba Vanga was the disaster “tsunami”. In her prediction, she said that “a big wave will cover a large coast with people and villages where everything disappears under water”.
She predicted that the disaster would completely destroy the area and there will be a huge loss to human life and public property.
Shockingly that’s what was experienced in 2004 when massive tides hit the Thailand coast and took the lives of almost 230,000–280,000 people in across 14 countries.
49/11 Attacks On America
She has not only predicted natural calamities but also gave predictions about terrorist activity in America, Vangelia Pandeva Dimitrova (another name of Baba Vanga) also predicted the attacks on the 110 floor, Twin Towers, when in 1989. She said that
“Horror, horror! The American brethren will fall after being attacked by the steel birds. The wolves will be howling in a bush, and innocent blood will be gushing”.
In this prediction, the American brethren meant “twin towers”, and steel birds meant “the planes”.
Sadly the prediction came true on 11th September 2001, when passenger planes were hijacked by the Islamic terrorist group “Al-Qaeda”, and two of them were crashed into the World Trade Centre in New York. This attack resulted in deaths of around 2,996 people, and the United Nations suffered an estimated loss of $10 billion in the form of property and infrastructure.
3The Rise Of ISIS In Syria
This one is a fascinating as it highlights the situation of Syria under ISIS, Baba Vanga had predicted that there would be the use of chemical weapons in Syria and Muslims would try to capture the area. In her prediction, she said that
“A great Islamic war would start in Syria culminating in complete control of Rome, in 2043”.
And as we have seen with the current situation in Syria, this prediction also stands true. Syria has been destroyed by ISIS resulting in massive loss of life. This has culminated in a war of various countries against ISIS, and the alleged use of harmful chemical weapons.
According to the Syrian Network for Human rights, up until March 2017, the death toll for the civilians killed so far in Syria has reached an estimated 400,000.
2Russian Submarine “Kursk” Accident
In 1980. Baba Vanga predicted that Kursk would be covered with water. Although at that time no one knew what Kursk was. Her words of prediction were:
“At the turn of the century in August of 1999 or 2000, Kursk will be covered with water, and the whole world will be weeping over it”
Shockingly almost twenty years, after Vanga's prediction, in the year 2000 a Russian submarine, which was named after the city of Kursk, exploded while preparing to launch practice torpedoes, all 118 sailors and officer perished in the accident and just as Baba Vanga had predicted it happened in the month of August and the thing is that in 1980 there was no submarine named Kursk.
1The Death Of Actress And Singer Silvana Armenulic
This prediction has a story behind it. In 1976, when the Yugoslav actress Silvana Armenulic was on tour in Bulgaria, she decided to meet Baba Vanga.
The meeting didn't go well as Baba Vanga wouldn't talk to Silvana and sat with her back to her. After a long silent pause, Baba Vanga said, “I don’t want to speak to you” and asked her to come to see her again after three months. As Silvana started to walk away, Vanga called to her:
“Wait. In fact, you will not be able to come. If you are able to come back in three months, do come.”
Silvana took this as a prediction that she would die in three months and she left that place in tears.
Less than two months after their meeting on the 10th October 1979, Silvana died in a car accident at the age of just 38 along with her sister Mirjana.
