Dr. Tinka Miteva About Baba Vanga
I studied Psychology at the Sofia University, and later on – Psychotherapy at the Swiss Academy of professor Waldo Bernasconi. In 1967 I was appointed an associate at the Institute of Suggestology, founded by prof. Georgi Lozanov. Having just graduated, I left for Petrich, where together with other colleagues we studied “the Baba Vanga phenomenon”. My work consisted in recording all conversations of visitors with the prophetess, then talking to them to see if what she said was true, if she managed to guess their circumstances and to what extent. In the evening, I compared the records from the tape recordings with my notes for what people said after the meeting with the prophetess.
I did my work with great interest and love. The memories from this stage of my life are unforgettable. I was very impressed with the authority Baba Vanga had in front of her visitors. They would go up to her as if she was God, with awe and utmost respect, with real emotion, afraid of what they are about to hear, but hopeful that they would find a solution to their problem. They believed her very much. It turned out that 90 percent of her words were the truth.
