Natasha Velova About Baba Vanga – one of the daughters of Vitka Petrevska
In the beginning of the 70-ties I started to visit Baba Vanga more often, through my mother. I remember that one of her first words to me were that I will marry a man whose name will be Mitko. I didn’t have a boyfriend with such a name back then, so I quickly forgot her words. Ten years have passed, and believe it or not, I met a man named Dimitar, who became my husband shortly after. He even was a distant relative of Baba Vanga – on her husband’s side. Both my husband and Baba Vanga’s were from the same village.
In the summer of 1978 Baba Vanga was our Godmother at our wedding. I remember that my husband did forget his wedding ring, so Baba Vanga took hers off and gave it to him, so we don’t ruin the ritual. When she was putting the ring on my finger she told me quietly: “Natasha now it is a great moment for you, but be prepared that later on is the heavy part of life.”
I did understand the meaning of those words, not until my husband passed away. Just like Baba Vanga’s husband (whose name was also Dimitar), my husband died at the same age – only at 45. He left me with two children to take care of by myself.
