Wang – a symbol of the Unknown

(Wanga died on August 11, 1996 after a serious illness. Wanga died for two months. When she was brought to the intensive care unit of the government hospital in Sofia, she refused medical care and left everything to the will of God.) The doctors fed her intravenously. Last time she was in a coma. Before she died, she came to herself and said that she would give her whole gift to a girl from France. The girl should be ten soon, and not today or tomorrow, having received the Gift, will also become blind.)
In the south-west of Bulgaria, in the village of Rupite, near the town of Petrich, is her house. Little plump mistress is blind from childhood. It affects her dead, like a mask, face. She speaks very loudly, blatantly … Cutting … With everyone to “you” … Talking common … Phrases are short, chopped …
Dusty valley teeming with snakes, not everyone likes. Many consider it a grim, depressingly acting on the psyche. But the blind mistress of the house with all her heart loves this place, is attached to it, believes that the ancient land of Rupite gives her strength, feeds an amazing gift. It is here that she hears the voices that tell her so much. (It is interesting that this is the place where the bird trail passes. Huge flocks of birds flock here when they fly south or return home. No one knows the reason for these concentrations.)
The legendary mistress of the house is a landmark in Bulgaria and a symbol of the Unknown – the seer Vanga Dimitrova. Her full name of the Gospel over the years transformed into a home – Wang. People call her Baba Vanga. Occupation, an incomprehensible gift, worldwide popularity, crowds of visitors have created a lot of legends around her, and now it is difficult to understand where the truth is and where is fiction.
It is said that everything began in early childhood, when on an inclement day walking children noticed a strange cloud in the sky. “Thunderstorm,” the guys thought. But there was no thunderstorm. The ominous cold windshield cruelly tore the young leaves from the trees, drove puffs of dust along the road, curled up with tornado craters, stepped closer, closer, closer and suddenly picked up the seven-year Gospel. There, in the roaring tornado, she felt as if a touch of someone’s hand to her head and … lost consciousness. She came to on the ground. Headache. And to this day that place, if you touch it, responds with pain.
Soon, Wanga was blind. Parents sent her to a special school. And there, once on Saturday after dinner, a huge stranger stood in front of her and said: “The war will begin tomorrow, and you must tell people who will die and who will survive. War tomorrow!”
So, according to stories, Wang gained a prophetic gift. From all over the world, people flock to her, tormented by adversity without distinction of gender, age and education in the hope of advice, miracle, the power of her vision! Who does not need advice and help? Diseases, misfortunes, troubles are not the prerogative of the poor. Before God, the proverb says, everyone is equal! They say that at one time Wang took up to 120 people a day. According to published data, in 1976, 102,000 people used its services. Now, when Vanga is under eighty, she takes 10-15 people a day, spending 3 – 4 minutes per visitor. Money for the reception go to the city treasury.
Each person brings with him a piece of sugar, which has lain under a pillow for 2 to 3 days. Taking the sugar, as if absorbed information about a person, Wang tells him the past and the future. Instead of sugar, a quartz watch (a quartz crystal also records information) or jewels with a ruby ​​can come up. Naturally, the watches and jewelry after divination are returned to the owner.
Wang believes that her gift is given to her by the highest forces. Interestingly, she usually does not speak with those whose days are numbered, or with those who came out of curiosity.
She avoids predicting political events, although she claims to have predicted the Second World War.
The ease with which Wanga moves his gaze from the distant past to the distant future is striking.
Most often, the Information is perceived by her as a deaf and distant (“like on the phone”) voice. Visual information is sometimes accompanied by sound.
Wang reads thoughts at a distance without a range limit. There is no language barrier for it.
In contact with the deceased, she perceives his image, which can describe in detail. Contact active, two-way. Both parties can ask and answer.
Twenty years ago, Dr. Georgy Lozanov, director of the Institute of Suggestionology, after analyzing more than 5,000 Vanga’s predictions, came to the conclusion that “recognition” comes from Vanga abroad of random coincidences and reaches 80% … In conclusion of the story about Vanga, two points should be noted. The first one is that blind Vanga’s statements about the imaginative perception of the past, present and future of clients coincide with Caldone’s thoughts about “seeing not with the help of ordinary sight, but with the soul”. By the way, we can see in such a situation sometimes in order to reduce interference from images of the real world around them.
