After the kind of year we all had in 2020, we are desperate for 2021 to be a good one. While some often turn to a tarot reader to help them gain a little insight, a blind soothesayer by the name of Baba Vanga has left a series of predictions for this year.
Baba Vanga, also known as the ‘Nostradamus of the Balkans’ or her birth name Vangelia Gushterova, is not a stranger to blowing up on the internet. She was brought into the limelight when her predictions about the tragic 9/11 incident, the Brexit, dissolution of the Soviet Union and even The Chernobyl Disaster came true. Before her death in 1966 at the age of 85, she made a series of mystical predictions right up until the year of 5079, which is the year that she predicted the year would end.
Baba Vanga lost her vision at the young age of 12 but was in return, blessed with ‘the gift of looking into the future’ and her clairvoyant powers also apparently helped her see and contact the dead. She even predicted her own death and hence was regarded as the blind mystic.
While we all hoped 2021 to be ‘the best year of our life’ , these are some of the predictions that Baba Vanga made for this year that could prove to be otherwise -
- Definitely one of the most worrying predictions, she predicted a deadly tsunami that would hit Asia. While some skeptics may not pay any heed to her predictions, she had earlier predicted the 2004 tsunami which took the lives of around 240,000 people in Southeast Asia !
- She also made predictions about the current Russian and former US president. According to her, Putin would survive an assassination attempt by someone from his own country and Trump would fall ill because of a mysterious disease that would cause him brain injury and leave him deaf.
- The Nostradamus of the Balkans also made bizarre predictions about Europe’s economy saying that it would not only collapse in 2021 but also be attacked by Islamic terrorists.
- That is not the only bizarre prediction she made, she also said that 2021 would be a year where the human would be seized by a dragon and 3 giants would rule the Earth.
- According to her 2021 would be the year for major technological advancements with trains being able to ‘fly’ using sunlight as the production of petrol comes to a halt.
- While NASA has been trying to make contact with Extra terrestrial life for a few years, Vanga predicted that the next 200 years would be the year that humans make contact with aliens. “Life in cosmos will be discovered, and suddenly it will be clear how life on Earth first appeared, people will get in touch with their spiritual siblings from other worlds”.
- On a slightly better note, 2021 would also apparently be the year that a cure for cancer would finally be developed. Although she did not specify when it would happen she said “At the beginning of the 21st century, humanity will get rid of cancer” .
While some of these predictions could be anxiety inducing and the only fuel that conspiracy theorists need to start rumours, people are not all too convinced about the Authentic of Baba Vanga. While her followers boast of her prophetic powers being 85% successful, skeptics state that the earlier ‘successful predictions’ were not made by Baba Vanga but some Russian trolls instead. According to skeptics.com, “Vanga was illiterate or semi-literate, and she apparently did not write any books herself, with staff members financed by the Bulgarian government capturing what she allegedly said.”
