Vangeliya (Vanga) Pandeva Dimitrova (1911 - 1996) was born in Bulgaria. At age 12, she went missing for several days during a massive storm. When she was found, her eyes were covered with sand and she had lost her eyesight.
In 1925, at age 14, she spent three years at a school for the blind in the city of Zemun where she learned to read braille, do knitting & cooking & cleaning. When her stepmother died, she returned home to care for her younger siblings.
During World War II, Vanga had become well-known for her ability to heal others and as a prophet (predictor, prognosticator). Many people visited her during the war, seeking information on their relatives, whether alive or the place of their death.
One of those who sought Vanga's visions was Dimitar Gushterov, a Bulgarian soldier, who wanted to learn the killers of his brother, promising not to seek revenge.
On May 10, 1942, Vanga married Dimitar and the couple moved to Petrich, where Vanga became even more well-known as a soothsayer. Soon thereafter, Dimitar was conscripted into the Bulgarian Army and spent time in northern Greece. He became ill in 1947, fell into alcoholism and died in April of 1962.
After her marriage, Vangelia Gushterova would be later known to millions of people as Baba Vanga -- "Baba" being a term of honor and meaning a wise person. She was known as the Nostradamus of the Balkans
Baba Vanga was sought out by many people after World War II, including Leonid Brezhnez, President of the USSR, in the 1990s, and a church was built with money left by visitors.
On August 11, 1996, Baba Vanga died from breast cancer.
She is said to have predicted the attack on the Twin Towers in 2001 (as well as the rise of ISIS and many other events). Her words -- "Horror, horror. The American Brethren will fall after being attacked by the steel birds... The wolves will be howling in a bush and innocent blood will gush."

Some of this may or may not happen. Prophecy is a tricky endeavor, especially concerning the future.
However, I find it interesting. After going through a period of experiencing precognitive dreams of future events occurring in my life, well in advance of them actually happening (several days or more), when I was in my late 30s through the present, I have come to believe that glimpses of the future can indeed take place. But perhaps those glimpses of the future are revealing the future as it would exist from that moment on, unless something "unpredictable" took place to alter the precise future.
Life on Planet Earth is strange & magical & mysterious & wonderful & often difficult -- all rolled into one.
But dwelling on the past can create depression over regrets and dwelling on the future can create anxiety over an unknown path of events.
Clearly, living in the present is the way to inner peace.
What will be, will be -- go with the Flow.
