Story told by Rayna Mladenova from Kyustendil
It was a very hot summer of 1968, but my soul was frozen. My husband was very sick – we visited doctors, sanatoriums, natural healers…After another severe crisis that he had, I decided to visit Baba Vanga. I headed out to Petrich with my daughter who was only 6. We didn’t have an appointment, as I had no contacts or connections that could have helped me to book one. In the morning I spoke with the cashier that is giving the admission numbers, and I described him in details my sad situation around my husband. He showed compassion and understanding and gave me a number. I will never forget that gesture from this man. In the same morning, I started to wait infront of the gate. There were many people also waiting with me. At one moment it became so quiet when the door opened – I almost felt scared. I was expecting to see an ordinary woman – and I did see a real saint. I couldn’t move, I couldn’t take my eyes off her as if she had hypnotized me. She can petrify, calm down, and relax you…those are the feelings that I felt when I was standing in front of her – feelings that I’ll remember for my entire life.
I was third on the list. I crossed over the doorstep, as if there was no gravity around me, and left the sugar cube on the table. Baba Vanga touched it and asked who is sick. Then she went on: – Alexander, Alexander (this is the name of my husband), why do you come to see me so late? So much pain he had to suffer. I will help you. The doctors are telling you that your husband has a discal hernia (this was the exact diagnoses!), but I see that one if his nerves is constricted. From here go directly to Bankya, and look for uncle Dimitar. He is working at the sanatorium of the National Security. You will tell him that I have sent you. He will help your husband. He will still have some pain once and a while, but it will be no near to what he suffers now. Also tell Dimitar to fix his house numbers – I barely see it as one of the numbers is worn off (indeed the number “1” was missing). Your father Kiro is asking for you, he loved you very much, now he is together with your brothers.”
Once I heard that, I was literary overwhelmed, speechless. I didn’t even feel my daughter’s hand…I wanted to open my mouth but I couldn’t – tears were pouring out of my eyes. The culmination was when I left some money on the table, and Baba Vanga touched them and said: – This money is not yours but you are giving it with heart. Hide those tears. Your husband will recover and your family will have money and happiness.
I bowed infront of her to thank her. I kissed her hand and at this moment I found strength to get up. When I went out I felt my upper lip was swelling – I was so astonished from my meeting with Baba Vanga. It is hard to describe that in words. Only those that had a personal contact with her – the phenomenon – know what I talk about.
Whatever she said – it happened exactly as she said it. We found uncle Dimitar in Bankya, and he adjusted my husband’s nerve, so we avoided the complicated surgery. From this moment onwards, Baba Vanga became our spiritual mother and protector for our family. She was reading everything a man can think of – you can’t lie or hide thoughts from her.
I had to visit Baba Vanga again in 1987 – this time it was for my daughter. She told me to take her to doctor Dimitrov at Tina Kirkorova hospital. She told me to tell him that he shouldn’t be worried that he will be transferred to another hospital – it will be better for him. Those who are his enemies – God will take care of them.
We found doctor Dimitrov, he examined my daughter and he called doctor Tabakova. He gave my daughter to her. Indeed he changed the hospital in few months. My daughter underwent a surgery, and it all went successfully – as Baba Vanga had predicted. In few years I went to see her again to ask if my daughter will get pregnant. She touched the sugar cubes, and said: – This woman – Tabakova has done a great surgery, well done, well done! She is gifted by God to make families happy. Don’t take your daughters to more doctors – she will have two children when the time comes. Last time I didn’t tell you that she will have a surgery, as I knew you would be very distressed.
Baba Vanga fondled my hair when I bowed in front of her to kiss her hand. I had so much energy at this moment – I wanted to fly, not walk. I thanked her and I told her that she is the saviour of my family. – God bless you Baba Vanga to be healthy for many years, to be able to help all those unfortunate people that will need your help – I said.
I wanted our conversation to go on for hours – it was so relaxing on my soul. I really think I became a different person. I felt the need to do more good things to people, to help. This was Baba Vanga’s message – to be good with each other and to help each other.
