Velichka Gogova About Baba Vanga

Story told by Velichka Gogova from Kardzhali

In 1941 my mother has lost her long-awaited baby boy, after having four girls. She had so much pain in her heart. She put on a black kerchief and started crying often. To calm her down, my father took her to see Baba Vanga.

Once Baba Vanga saw my mother she said: – Take that black kerchief off your head. What you lost, you keep it under your heart.

It was a great surprise when my mother found out that she was pregnant again. Nine months later she gave birth to a boy – my brother, who is now living in Sofia. I am so fascinated how Baba Vanga saw that my mother will get pregnant again and will give birth to a boy.

I was 18 when in 1957 I met Baba Vanga for the first time. My father was sick, and together with my mother she sought her help. She said that neither the doctors nor her can help him cure his disease, but he will live a long live with his pains. This is what happened – my father passed away when he was 76.

Then Baba Vanga predicted that I will get married away from my home town and will have two children. This is what happened – I went to live in Kardzhali and have a son and a daughter.

Few years passed. My younger sister didn’t have children. On her fourth month of pregnancy, her body was miscarrying the fetus. When we met Baba Vanga again, she said to bring my sister to her once she reaches the fourth month. We had to take a doll and one baby diaper.

I remember this whole scene very well. On her knees, Baba Vanga was wrapping and unwrapping the doll with the diaper, and she was whispering something, at the same time all covered in sweat. Then she stood up and said: – It attached! The baby will be normally carried, and will be born in good health. Once he is 4 months old, bring him here so I can baptize him.

On December 9th, 1970 my sister gave a birth to a boy. When he was 4 we took him to Baba Vanga. She was expecting us – and she had everything prepared to have him baptized. She game my nephew the name Ivan.

Story Analysis

The ritual with the doll and the diaper is extremely interesting and exciting with its mystery. So Baba Vanga not only possess the skills to cure people from their disease, but she also has the key in the secrets of conception.

This particular ritual reminds of the religious rites, magic, curses, and rituals that were done in the antiquity. It turns out that those are not empty believes and fantasies, but rather keys to truth that were only given to certain people.

Once people were much closer to God, and they knew the secrets of the creation and life. By walking away from the spiritual that is inside us, and going deeper in the materialistic and transitional world, people have lost this universal knowledge.
