If concerned about where our world is heading it would be well to take an interest in Vangelia Pandeva Dimitrova (Vanga 1911 – 1996). At 12-years old she lost her sight in an accident and when found was barely alive.
Vanga lived in Rupite straddling the borders of Bulgaria, Macedonia and Greece, a place said to be a source of incredible cosmic energy. Her predictions began when, as a teenager, she helped her father find a stolen sheep by giving him a detailed description of where it had been hidden.
Efforts to save her sight were fruitless but the youngster acquired a sixth sense so simple jobs became routine. To amuse herself she played at being a ‘healer.’ Visitors arrived to hear her predictions or cure them of ailments but her powers really took shape after she turned thirty.
In January 1941 a phantom knight appeared and told her: “The world is on the threshold of disaster. Millions of people will die. You will stand here and prophesy. Do not be afraid. I’ll tell you what you should say.”
It is claimed her famous visitors included Adolph Hitler who ‘departed a very sad man’. Five months later, with 170 Soviet Divisions poised to strike Germany from the East, the German leader pre-emptively struck Russia with disastrous consequences.
Such were her powers that she spent time in a Soviet prison for predicting the Russian dictator’s death. She was right. In 1980 she prophesied; “In 1999 or 2000, Kursk will be covered with water and the world will weep.”
It didn’t make sense as Kursk is a landlocked city in Russia. In 2000 the Russian nuclear submarine Kursk sank. Its crew of 118 perished before the eyes of an agonised world.
In January 1988: “We are witnessing events of paramount significance. Two big leaders shake hands.” Soviet President Mikhail Gorbachev and U.S. President Ronald Reagan were soon to do so heralding the collapse of Communism.
Later, “American brethren will fall after being attacked by the steel bird. The wolves will howl in the bush, and innocent blood will flow. In 2001 New York’s World Trade Centre collapsed after two commercial planes were flown into them. Was the term ‘bush’ connected to the name of the U.S. President at the time?
“Numerous catastrophes and disasters will shake the world. The mentality of the people will change. They will be divided by their faith.”
Of her motherland Vanga was more upbeat: One of her predictions is that when permafrost thaws and floods come, nothing will survive on earth but Russia. The climate will change and Russia will occupy the best inhabitable zone.”
Russia is predicted to herald in world peace and flourish in the face of good fortune. “Everything melts away like ice yet the glories of Vladimir, the glory of Russia are the only things that will remain. Russia will not only survive, it will dominate the world.”
