Vasil Vasilev About Baba Vanga

Story told by Vasil Vasilev from the city of Pazardzhik

Life is sending all sorts of challenges to people, but one of the hardest one is the disease. I got sick from multiple sclerosis. My great desperation made me go to visit Baba Vanga in 1978. Hundreds of people – both with and without an appointment were waiting to see Baba Vanga on the day I came. I entered in her room, once I was called. When she found out about my disease, Baba Vanga recommended me something quite strange – in the summer to get a prolonged exposure of my legs to the sun, and also to go to Sofia and visit Dr. Holevitch.

I knew that he was an orthopedist. I was wondering why she is sending me to such a specialist when I rather needed a neurologist. Later on Dr. Holevitch directed me to a neurologist who also couldn’t help me.

Baba Vanga told me that at the age of 38 I will be promoted at work. When I was 38 I retired as a result of my sickness.

I heard before, that Baba Vanga usually don’t tell bad news when she sees them. This is most likely why she sent me to an inappropriate specialist, so to give me a hint that there are no specialists that can really help me.

Or maybe she wanted to keep my faith alive? If she did uncover the whole truth in front of me back then, I don’t think that I would have made it another few more years, knowing that there is no hope for me.

Story Analysis

Baba Vanga was the symbol of hope and salvation for everyone who had a misfortune. Unfortunately numerous examples show that Baba Vanga is not almighty. It is not to her power to change people’s destinies, never the less how much suffering those people have to take, if it is inevitable and “written” to happen. Baba Vanga is rather an instrument that helps in changing that, which is allowed to be changed by the superior power. Seeing in great details the essence of the problem, very often Baba Vanga changes the perception of a given disease that is considered fatal, to something that can be cured, or she simply says that the doctor’s diagnoses is wrong. She also helps her suffering visitors to solve their dilemmas and make their final decisions whether they should do a surgery or not.
