Cela ne m'avait même pas traversé l'esprit,

Is me a direct object here. I cannot find a definition for 'se traverser'

Hi Jack,

The expression is 'traverser l'esprit' ( to cross somebody's mind) so

quelque chose traverse l'esprit à quelqu'un 

and the 'me' is an indirect object pronoun.

Ça ne lui avait jamais traversé l'esprit = It had never crossed his/her mind

Hope this helps!
