Marianna Konova About Baba Vanga

Story told by Marianna Konova – a business lady

Short introduction

In 1988 Marianna Konova visits Baba Vanga for the first time, because of problems in her personal life. Deep in her mind she remembers the words of Baba Vanga that she will work in the ocean transportation field with Cyprus, Cuba, China, and Kuwait. At first this prophesy sounded absurd, but with the years, everything that Baba Vanga said came true.

Over the years, Marianna visits Baba Vanga at every opportunity she has, and shows her great respect and love to this woman, that has dedicated her life to help others.

Once Baba Vanga sensed her selfless friendship, she started to accept Marianna very cordially. She becomes her best man at her wedding and a godmother of her children. They go together for picnics, celebrations, and national customs. Marianna Konova has 5 children – something that Baba Vanga has predicted with unbelievable accuracy.

The story of Marianna Konova about Baba Vanga

Everything that Baba Vanga has told me or has predicted came true. Many of the things she warned me about sounded so absurd at first, but one by one they were happening just like she described them. Once I told her that I want to open up a gas station and she said: – Why do you need it now? You will have a gas station at a great location near the entrance of Sofia.

This sounded impossible. Years later, I recalled about her prophesy when they returned the land of my husband near the highway where is on of the main entrances for Sofia.

We talked about many things. Once in 1994 I was curious to ask whether Simeon II will return to Bulgaria. Baba Vanga was in good mood and with a smile she said: – He’ll return. When you give birth to your 5th child, then he will come back.

I really thought she was joking. I had 4 children, so I didn’t have any intentions to have a 5th. But two years later, whether coincidence or not I gave birth to my youngest daughter. The very same year Simeon II came back to Bulgaria for the first time in 40 years. Again Baba Vanga has told me her prophesy in a very simple and ordinary phrase – something she often did.

When we were around her, she always found a way to advise us about something important, to bring us to our senses. She was telling our Bulgarian politicians to not close their doors to the Russian markets. She used to say: Grandpa Ivan can help Bulgaria. Why do you spit in the well, when you haven’t found a new one from which to extract drinking water?

She had a respect for the president of Kalmikia – Kirsan Ilyumzhinov because he loved his countrymen. For Zhelio Zhelev (former Bulgarian president) she said that he is an atheist and she doesn’t like him.

– There are no reds, no blues – they are all painted. All of them are traders of dead sheep. This is what she used to say about the two main Government parties in Bulgaria.

She was always reminding the politicians that were visiting her that if they don’t reinstate the religion classes in the elementary schools, and if the two Synods of Bulgaria don’t unite, there won’t be a better future for Bulgaria. Faith, hope, and love – this was the path the Baba Vanga was pointing to all of us. She was asking us to love each other, to unite, and not to be envious.

Around the situation with Yugoslavia – the peace at the Balkans was unstable. In a friendly conversation Baba Vanga told me not to worry, as there won’t be blood in Bulgaria. She said that we should be in a perfect relationship with our neighbouring countries, because these are the people that help us the most. Baba Vanga rarely said something specific – she mostly used parables, symbols, and common sayings that were not easy to understand by everyone.

For Yugoslavia many times she used to say that it will become in pieces. For Macedonia she was unconditional that Bulgarians and Macedonians are one nation. She said that one day the Balkans will unite.

I was very impressed by her prophesy that Bulgaria has a lot of gold and one day it will be found – somewhere in the Balkan Mountain. But then she added that once the gold is found, water will hide away.

I felt sad because after Baba Vanga passed away, there were dozens of pretenders that claimed they had her gift. The prophetess never appointed an inheritor. She often used to say that her skills were given to her by God, and without his will, she couldn’t have done anything. When I read the newspapers about prophets that claim that they have inherited the mission of Baba Vanga and possess her power and skills – I feel a deep indignation. I want to believe that those new clairvoyants have indeed skills, and will use it for good. But it is really ugly and unfair to popularize your gift in such a way. To advertise yourself on the back of Baba Vanga who didn’t seek money or fame, is a pure sin.

Baba Vanga believed in God, and she used to say that we have to baptize our children and teach them about the New Testament. She didn’t deny the Koran, the Buddhism, the Catholics because she knew that God is one.

“We are all children of God” she used to say until the last moment of her life and “love each other, be tolerant and patient with each other, don’t hate or envy  each other – these are our constructive powers”.
