I had gotten my level one Reiki attunement a year prior but hadn’t done a lot with it. I wasn’t even sure I believed in it! Here I was, sitting home every day, stress and trauma pumping through me like our blood does, what did I have to lose?! The second step was practicing Reiki daily.
The last of the Four Agreements is: Always do your best. For many, this brings up visions of hard work, stress and endless re-dos until the final result is flawless, but doing your best isn't always about absolute perfection. What is “best” for one person, may be impossible for another to achieve. If you have never picked up a violin, your best will sound nothing like a symphony orchestra player, but it is still your best.
