Stories From the Best Friends of Baba Vanga
Who is Baba Vanga? The reborn spirit of a noble persona from the past? A Bulgarian prophetess called to hold the door open to the knowledge of the other world? A Saint, a sufferer, or a stranger that came from another dimension to our sinful Earth? Terrestrial or not, Baba Vanga is the woman “touched” by the Big and Unexplained power that marked her destiny at the age of 12.
Everyone that knew Baba Vanga close, does not argue that she was a great phenomenon. But those same people insist to describe her other side – that of an ordinary human being. Because together with her extraordinary skills, Baba Vanga is also a normal person that has his weaknesses, imperfections, and caprices. To know Baba Vanga only as an exceptional person, means to mythologize her image and mask the reality on purpose. One of the main purposes of this blog is not to transform the name of Baba Vanga into a made-up legend, but to objectively tell the story of her life through the eyes of many people that knew her or had met her.
The co-existence of the ordinary and extraordinary in the everyday life of Baba Vanga is striking. On one hand she is an unmatched phenomenon that scientists can’t explain, and on the other hand Baba Vanga is this normal person with his typical weaknesses. The part of her life where she is not accepting people for readings, she is not prophesying, she is not commutating with the dead or in other words she does not “work” is not very well known to people.
There between the physical and non-physical world where Baba Vanga’s soul is hovering, is this simple face of Baba Vanga, that can be hurt by others.
Some of Baba Vanga’s best friends are trying to describe namely that “simple face” of the prophetess the way they’ve seen it close, as a result of the opportunity to be around her for many years. Those friends of Baba Vanga loved her the way you love your closest one. They were loyal to her day and night, during celebrations, and whenever she needed them. Some of them stayed with her and helped her to the very last day of her life.
Below are the links from the stories of some of the closest people to Baba Vanga. Their stories are most probably one of the most authentic information about the life of the prophetess.
