Mara Tasheva About Baba Vanga

Story told by Mara Tasheva from the city of Nesebar

I was 30 years old when destiny sent me a big challenge. In 1973 my husband – Stoyan Tashev, had a brain haemorrhage and as a result his entire left side became paralyzed. He was too young – just 33 years old, to accept such a sad fate, and every day he was telling me to go and visit Baba Vanga.

Fulfilled with hope, I headed out to Baba Vanga in September 1973. In front of her home there were many people waiting patiently for their meeting with her. There were 14 people left that had to go in by an appointment, and from there it was up to Baba Vanga whether she will accept more visitors for today. I was expecting from her to tell me something to calm me down, so I can go back to my husband and my kids. Around 2 pm she stopped receiving people so she can relax, and most people went home. I decided to stay, hoping that her compassion will give me a chance to see her. For a moment they left the gate opened, and I entered. I walked through the path, and Lubka – Baba Vanga’s sister told me that they are done accepting visitors for today. At this moment from the garden I heard the voice of  Baba Vanga saying:

– I know what did you come for. You husband should stay at the place he is staying at – my husband was staying at a sanatorium in St. Vlas near the city of Sunny Beach. Baba Vanga went on to add – he got paralyzed as a result of high blood pressure. Don’t take him to other hospitals or sanatoriums to spent extra money. He will not get better than that – he won’t be cured, but he will live long enough. Look after him, respect him – you have two children from him.

I thanked her from the bottom of my heart that at least she told me something despite how tired she was. I had the impression that with her eyes she was scanning all over me even though she is blind. She was talking to me as if she was seeing me. I had the deep feeling that I am standing in front of the whole universe and not a normal human being.

Before I go I decided to book another appointment for Baba Vanga, as you had to wait for months. They gave me a number to visit her next year in October.

Time passed by, and I came relaxed that this time I have an appointment. I was carrying my husband’s sugar cubes. I entered with my two children, and gave her the sugar cubes. Baba Vanga touched the sugar and said at once:

– Why do you come to me again? I told you one year ago that your husband will not get healthy, but will have a long life. You have two kids, take care for them and for him and don’t spent any extra money on medications or sanatoriums.

I felt speechless when I heard those words, as she told me exactly the same from last year. So I told myself that is my destiny, husband and kids will fully rely on my support.

My husband lived with his disease another 23 years and passed away in 1996. Baba Vanga was a selfless woman with big heart ready to help anyone. She deserved my family’s love and gratitude as if she was a saint.

Story analysis

Baba Vanga don’t tell the bad news to everyone. She has a feeling who is capable of accepting such bad news and who can’t. In the case of Miss Tasheva, Baba Vanga saw that there is no point of hiding the facts or trying to cover them up with nicer words – the woman needs to know that the situation around her husband will not change and she should not spent any extra money on medications or expensive treatments. This approach of Baba Vanga shows her high level of morality – it was clear at the end that Mara Tasheva was dearly thankful.
