Elena Grusheva About Baba Vanga

Story told by Elena Grusheva

In 1954, my husband’s cousin – Tashka who is from Strumitza, Macedonia on her way to our apartment in Sofia stopped by to visit Baba Vanga. Tashka and Baba Vanga were in the same class in the elementary school – they even sat together on one desk. Tashka wanted to share her grief with Baba Vanga with the hope to get help from her. Her son – Christo, was suffering from severe insomnia, and was walking up and down for whole nights.

Baba Vanga was happy to see her classmate, and not even a word said by Tashka, Baba Vanga told her: – Come on, don’t cry and don’t worry, just listen to me what I tell you, and take this recipe to your son so he can drink it. He will be alright, he will sleep like a little lambkin.

Feeling much more relax, Tashka came to visit us in Sofia and told us her story with Baba Vanga. She asked her to do something quite strange – so right on the next day my husband started to prepare the recipe. A good neighbour of ours – Charley, had a pigeon house. So my husband explained him the case, that he will need one pigeon, from which he will need its heart to prepare a medicine that was given by Baba Vanga. I still remember how they did it. Near the fountain in Charley’s yard, they slaughtered the pigeon and while still bleeding, they took its heart out and placed it in a bottle of red wine. Then Tashka took the bottle back to Strumitza where his son had to drink from this wine until it’s finished. We asked her to write us a letter once she has any news. Only after 2 weeks, Tashka notified us that her son started to improve drastically, and now his sleeping was normalized and he returned to his normal life. Later on his condition fully normalized – just like Baba Vanga had mentioned.

This same strange remedy Baba Vanga prescribes to Maria Todorova from Sofia. Maria had visited Baba Vanga in 1963 when she started to have problems with her nerves. Baba Vanga told her to bring the heart of a wild bird and 200 g of homemade red wine, so she can make her a medicine for relaxing her nervous system. Unfortunately Maria did not follow her advice.
