Children and extreme fear of strangers

Question: Selective Mutism is the disease in which children cannot speak to strangers. It is known to be caused mainly by anxiety, but I want to know if there is a spiritual cause.


 Answer from the Ascended Master Mother Mary through Kim Michaels. This answer was given during the 2021 Webinar – Being the Open Door for Planet Earth.

Well, with a spiritual cause, we can talk about whether there is a hidden cause that is not normally understood and that is more than physical. And, of course, there is such a cause. It is simply that these souls have in a past life been exposed to such severe trauma at the hands of strangers, that they carry this with them. And therefore, they still have this trauma in their four lower bodies, primarily in their emotional body as simply fear of strangers or fear of just what strangers might do, but also in the mental body, of feeling that they have been betrayed by strangers, and therefore, cannot trust them.

The only really constructive solution to this is to recognize reincarnation and use some kind of appropriate therapy to help people get in touch with these traumas from a past life and thereby resolve them. Naturally, our teachings and tools can help people if they are open to this, but there are also other forms of therapy that can help children overcome such problems.
