In our day to day lives, it’s like a snow globe that’s agitated, all shaken up. When we slow down, we’re putting the snow globe down. Depending on our social location, or what is inherited in our bodies, whether it’s transgenerational trauma or if we live a fairly trauma-free life, that’ll affect how much the snowflakes settle.
