Vladimir Golev story with Baba Vanga
Vladimir Golev is a famous Bulgarian poet, dramatist, and novelist
I have heard many things about Baba Vanga from my colleagues – Kostadin Kulyumov and Evtim Evtimov, but unfortunately I never had the chance to meet her in person. I had some sort of fear to have a contact with the paranormal, the unexplained. Moreover, in those years Baba Vanga was rather rejected than accepted due to the social system Bulgaria was under.
In fact, in the 60-ties, for some Baba Vanga was a saint and a great phenomenon, for others she was a sinner and a crook. Those who denied her were saying that whenever someone comes to Petrich, through close to her people, Baba Vanga was gathering information, and at the same time she didn’t always have accurate readings.
The strict scientists and activists were only supporting the facts and the empirical evidences. Wasn’t this enough evidence that Baba Vanga was able to tell such great details from a person’s life, or to have a conversation with the spirits of dead people, or to tell you something that will happen in the future – sometimes many years after, or to recommend you a remedy or a doctor that will cure your disease?
All of her prophesies somehow contradicted our narrow-minded materialistic perceptions. If we accept that she was able to see our lives just like in a movie film, then we can conclude that our destinies are all predefined – whatever is written, you can’t change or delete it. This really sounds mystical – as well as her statements that there is another world, another matter besides ours that is wonderful.
