Her birth name was Vangelia Pandeva Gushterova.

Vanga herself attributed her predictive capabilities to paranormal psychic powers and an ability to see into the future. However, these types of abilities are not scientifically proven.

Novo Selo, a 12-year-old peasant girl, Vangeliya, is playing with her cousins in a field when she gets caught up in a freak storm. She was carried off into the air by a tornado and they found her motionless body in the field. And strangely, her eyes were completely caked with sand and dust. And she said that she couldn't open them without excruciating pain.What then began was a decline in her ability to see. After the accident, Vangeliya developed a striking ability to predict the future and began making accurate revelations for the local population.

By the 1980s, Vangeliya, who adopted the name Baba Vanga, had given thousands of accurate predictions and gained a reputation as the Nostradamus of the Balkans. And when she would look at a person, she said that she could see their whole life in its totality, complete from birth through their life until death as if she were watching a movie.

She was a study of many Bulgarian and Soviet scientists, who scientifically started testing her and interviewing her and the people that she read. And they have found that it is an 80% accuracy. Her predictions were actually very accurate, which tells us that the ability to retrieve information beyond this earth plane has nothing to do with our five senses. In fact, when she became blind, it is as if her other senses developed to receive messages and information about the future. Among her numerous claims were predictions relating to world events. Many of which would later come true.

New York City, September 11, 2001-

BABA VANGA: American president will fall after being attacked by the steel birds. Two planes hijacked by members of a terrorist group, called al-Qaeda crash into the World Trade Center taking the lives of nearly 3,000 innocent civilians.

Sumatra, Indonesia, December 26, 2004-

BABA VANGA: A huge wave will cover a big coast covered with people and towns, and everything will disappear beneath the water. A 9.1 magnitude earthquake off the coast of the island creates a devastating tsunami, completely engulfing over 3,000 miles of land and claiming the lives of over 230,000 people.

Washington, DC, January 20, 2009--

BABA VANGA: The 44th president of the United States will be an African-American man. Everyone will put their hopes in him. I, Barack Hussein Obama, do solemnly swear. Barack Obama, an African-American senator from Illinois, is sworn into office as the 44th president of the United States.

Congratulations, Mr. President.

We must remember these amazing things are coming from someone who was born a peasant, who has not read books, had a slight, maybe functional literacy with Braille, but she has essentially has no access to televisions, no access to movies.

This is coming out of her interiority. Baba Vanga proclaimed her prophetic abilities not only allowed her to tap into an unknown realm of information, but it also put her in contact with extraterrestrials. Baba Vanga has talked about these extraterrestrials that are invisible or more like they are presences like clear reflections of water shimmering. And they shared with her many secrets which she says are locked inside the scriptures of many religions. We have to wonder with her where she was getting this information. Is it possible she was able to access some kind of knowledge that's out there that normal people cannot access?

So in summary, after accurately (according to her followers) predicting many major world events during her lifetime, the blind mystic Baba Vanga died on August 11, 1996 at the age of 85 in the Bulgarian village where she had lived and practiced for decades.
