Real name Vangelia Gushterov was the psychic to Nikita Krushchev Leonid Breznev Boris Yeltzin and occasionally Alex Korzhakov and Eric Honeker and other soviet bigwigs; she was a blind Bulgarian mystic, clairvoyant and herbalist from Macedonia, who spent most of her life in the Bulgarian mountains.
Millions of people around the world were convinced that she possessed paranormal abilities. Vanga was an intelligent child who always wanted to play at ” healing people ” She was a premature baby born in poverty on Jan 31 1911 and suffered from health complications, her mother dying soon after. In accordance with local tradition, the baby was not given a name until it was deemed likely to survive. When baba Vanga first cried out, a midwife went into the street and asked a stranger for a name for her.
Prominent Bulgarian psychiatrists Nicola Shipkovensky and Georgi Lozanov studied in depth the capabilities of Vanga for the authorities; reportedly some of the studies concluded that about 80% of predictions of Vanga turned out to be correct.
So important was this info that the USA also commissioned secret investigation through various multinationals into training and running psychics, these same people also commissioned disgraced quack James Randi to disprove their findings for public consumption.
Her mother’s death left Vanga dependent on the care and charity of neighbours and close family friends for much of her youth.
It is alleged that a tornado lifted Vanga as a small child up and threw her in a nearby field She was found after a long search and witnesses described her as very frightened, with her eyes covered with sand and dust, she was unable to open them because of the pain, there was money only for a partial operation to heal the injuries and blindness she had sustained.
Vanga claimed that her extraordinary abilities had something to do with the presence of invisible creatures, but she could not clearly explain their origin. She said that these creatures gave her information about people, which she could not transmit to them, because distance and time didn’t matter. According to Vanga, the life of everyone standing in front of her was like a film to her from birth until death. But changing “what was written on the generation” was beyond her power.
In 1925 Vanga went to a school for the blind and after the death of her stepmother had to go back home to work all day and take care of her younger siblings. Her family was very poor.
During World War II Vanga attracted believers in her ability to heal and soothsay and many people visited her, hoping to get info about their relatives.
On 8 April 1942 the Bulgarian tzar Boris III visited her, as did agents for Winston Churchill who was obsessed with the occult.
On 10 May 1942, Vanga married Dimitar Gushterov, a sick Bulgarian soldier he got another illness in 1947, fell into alcoholism, and he eventually died on 1 April 1962.
She continued to be visited by dignitary’s Bulgarian politician’s leaders and commoners from different Soviet Republics.
She predicted and advised on the Cuban Missile crisis which was spouted in the USA as a triumph while in reality Russia got certain promises vital for Russia’s security.
Vanga died on 11 August 1996 from breast cancer having predicted the date of her own death her funeral attracted large crowds, including many dignitaries.
Fulfilling Vanga’s last will and testament, her Petrich house was turned into a museum, which opened its doors for visitors on 5 May 2008, and money left by well-wishers built a local church.
Her handprint shows: _
(1) A bent tip to the Mercury or small finger shows a difficult early mother experience, this formation shows abandonment anxiety and is typical of the healer, it may also show people who can be devious.
(2) Small upright lines on the Mercury mount; this is the accepted healer’s stigmata.
(3) The curving line of intuition on the heal of the hand, always seen with psychics.
(4) This fingerprint is always a predictor of Diabetes type 2, from which she suffered; diabetics often have a different feel for the conscious mind.
(5) the inner life line often known as a Mars Line, gives protection and can be seen as a guardian angel line often seen with psychics, for more info on these lines see my book.
