Dorothy Eady started life as a toddler just like any other child around. She ran, played, and laughed all day, and was a treasure to her parents.
Then, the unthinkable happened. One morning, Dorothy was running down the stairs at her home near London when she slipped and fell: the three-year-old was pronounced dead on the scene.
Interestingly, something very unexpected happened: the child woke up and lived another four years, before everything changed in 1908.
The girl and her parents were on a regular outing to the British Museum, but the parents first became aware that the girl was behaving strangely, in that as soon as they reached the Egyptian section of the museum, Dorothy was transfixed.
She could not get enough of the artifacts and sat with a glass-enclosed mummy for a long time – refusing to go home with her parents. Her parents also, once, caught a glimpse of her running around the statues and kissing their feet.
After this incident, things took a turn for the worse.
Dorothy became almost depressed and would stare at photos of ancient Egypt insisting that the country was her home and that she needed to return to it. A picture of the “Temple of Seti the First at Abydos” got her, especially, excited one day. She rushed to her father and shouted that this place (in picture) was her former home.
It was reported that before Dorothy found the picture of the temple, she has had dreams in which she saw the buildings and greenery of ancient Egypt. Her interest and love for Egypt skyrocketed, that she joined study groups to learn more about reincarnation and spirituality.
She finally moved to Cairo after marrying an Egyptian man and gave birth to a baby she named Seti.
She herself would now be known as Omm Sety. Unfortunately, her marriage did not last due to the fact that her habit of going into trances and scribbling random hieroglyphics at night about her spirit guide completely freaked her husband out.
Her writings eventually amounted to around 70 pages and detailed her life in ancient Egypt.
The writings stated that she was a priestess at the Kom El Sultan temple (who had a child by Pharoah Seti) at the young age of 14. However, she had broken a priestess vow by losing her virginity and took her own life to prevent the Pharaoh from being punished for this crime.
The hieroglyphics also contained accounts of spiritual encounters with Seti and plans to reunite with him in the Egyptian underworld.
This fantastic story has been discarded by many as the ramblings of a crazy person, up until the day that Omm Sety helped archaeologists find the exact location of the Temple Garden. She also led them to an undiscovered tunnel at the north side of the Temple.
Having lived the rest of her days at the Temple of Abydos, she died in 1981.
There was no rational explanation for her memories, dreams, and knowledge of Egypt offered, and many skeptics find themselves wondering if Dorothy Eady (who named herself Omm Sety) was in fact the reincarnation of the ancient Egypt priestess, Omm Sety.
