No matter how many weird stories you’ve been told, the most convincing/captivating case of reincarnation in modern times will always be that of Dorothy Eady, or better known as “Omm Sety”. And also no matter how many sites you have visited in Egypt, the temple of Abydos will always be the one to absorb you the most. Some even believe will help you revitalize your soul.
She (kind of) rose from the dead, deciphered hieroglyphic inscriptions, brought offerings to the Gods of ancient Egypt and walked into their shrines barefoot. Omm Sety charmed snakes, healed the sick and mesmerized the world with the story of her love affair with King of Egypt, Sety I (who ruled around 1300 BC).
Dorothy was declared clinically dead when she was three- year-old. The English toddler came back from the realm of the dead a new and weird girl with new and even weirder memories but with one destination on her mind, Abydos. One of the holiest sites in ancient Egypt, Abydos was the abode of the Gods of Egypt and its most ancient pilgrimage destination.
To Abydos ancient Egyptians went in their thousands as pilgrims to celebrate the rituals of raising the ‘Djed’ or what they saw as the reenactment of the resurrection of ‘Osiris’. So as you see ‘Abydos’ of all the holy sites in ancient Egypt was intimately connected to the Egyptian theme of immortality and life after death.
And In Abydos is where ‘Omm Sety’ had adamantly decided to spend the rest of, let’s say her second life in Egypt. For according to the story her soul as ‘Bentreshyt’, her ancient Egyptian name, has transmigrated over the thousands of years and reincarnated as Dorothy Eady. Since we have so far no other rational explanation for the unbelievable twists and turns in her life, we have no option but to give Dorothy/Omm Sety the benefit of doubt. Even more we should ponder on her extraordinary life.
In a rare interview Mr. Horus, the native Egyptian apprentice and later assistant to Omm Sety, recalls his never heard before memories of the priestess of Abydos. Watch my short documentary that sheds the light on the last twenty years of the life of ‘Omm Sety’ in Abydos. Mr. Horus is revealing new information about her rituals as a temple priestess, her hidden discoveries and also her life dream and death wish.
The interview with Mr. Horus was filmed in February 2015 in the ‘House of Life’ spiritual healing resort in the historical and tranquil village of Abydos in Upper Egypt.
