A blind woman who apparently predicted the terrifying 9/11, the rise of ISIS, the Boxing day Tsunami, might also have foreseen two significant events in 2018.

Grandma Vanga, who died in 1996 at age 85, claimed she was gifted with supernatural abilities which helped her forecast natural disasters and other major happenings.

According to supernaturalists, before she died she left predictions all the way up to the 51st century when she said the world will end.

The mystic, also known as ‘Nostradamus from the Balkans’ reportedly predicted that in 2018 a ‘new form of energy’ will be discovered on Venus. She also said that China will overtake the US’s place as the world’s next ‘super power’. Quite thrilling!

Those who believe in her mystic powers say she might have been right about some of her predictions.

In July 2018 the Parker Solar Probe, named after the solar astrophysicist Eugene Parker is going to be launched by NASA.

The mission of this robotic spacecraft is to use the gravitational force of Venus to pass around the Sun and examine the solar wind and the energy that heats the plasma around our system’s Sun.

That does sound oddly familiar to the ‘new form of energy’ that Vanga was talking about.

China will overtake the USA as a superpower can also be fulfilled, according to the Vanga’s second prediction for 2018.

For instance, in 1970 China produced just 4.1 percent of the total world’s economy. However, this saw a meteoric rise to 15.6 percent in 2015 and it’s expected to continue to rise. While it still has not overtaken the USA, it could easily do so soon.

In 2015 the USA contributed 16.7 % of the world’s economy, but as Forbes reports, this is expected to fall to 14.9 % in 2025. Will Grandma Vanga’s predictions turn out to be true?

Well, she has certainly been praised for being right in the past as in 1989 she foretold 9/11 by saying that ‘two steel birds’ would attack the ‘American brethren’.

She supposedly said:

“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 be gushing.”

Other future events this mysterious woman has warned us about include the end of world hunger by 2028, ice caps melting by 2045, Mars colonies gaining nuclear weapons by 2256 and our planet becoming inhabitable from 2341.

So, next year doesn’t look so bad. We might as well relax and enjoy it while we can.
