Born in Bulgarian city of Strumica in 1911, Baba Vanga formerly known as Vangelia Pandeva Dimitrova or Grandmother Vanga was a blind mystic, who conspiracy theorists believe had predicted natural disasters and major global events including 9/11 attack and the rise of ISIS.
Vanga lived an ordinary life until the age of 12 when she, according to folklore, lost her eyesight in a massive tornado.
According to the oral history, she was lost in tornado and found several days later with her eyes sealed in dirt and dust.
She told her family that she experienced her first vision and was blessed with the powers of healing people and predict future.
Soon, her ‘miraculous’ stories attracted a cult of followers among which one was the Bulgarian tsar Boris III, who even visited her during World War Second.
She later served as an advisor to Bulgarian Communist Party leader.
What are Baba Vanga’s predictions for 2018
The blind mystic Baba Vanga, who died in 1996 left many predictions upto 51st Century, when she believed the world would end.
Baba Vanga’s major predictions that came true included 2004 Tsunami, destruction of Fukushima nuclear plant, the crisis that 45th President of the United States will bring in the world and her own death.
For 2018, Baba Vanga predicted two major world changing events. According to the predictions Baba Vanga left for 2018, China will become the world's next "super power", taking over from the US and “a new form of energy” will be discovered on Venus.
Though, China continues to grow rapidly and show great signs of becoming world power but is highly unlikely to take over the US in 2018.
However, the scientists have taken her second prediction seriously and started talking about the viability of the alleged prediction of new form of energy on the second planet of our solar system.
