I was scared of water & so were a few team members in my team. We attended Sagar’s session on harmonizing fear where he taught us how to overcome fear. We decided to go for a river rafting.We reached the place and started getting ready for the most awaited and fearful event. When we all were signing the disclaimer that we are responsible for anything happening to us during Rafting, we all had our heart beating but somewhere we were getting courage also to face the fear because it was our conscious decision to overcome our fear.
And then started the actual rafting and we were all just following the instructions given by guide to kayak in the directions given by him. We all were enjoying the thrill and fear was not coming anywhere. We started enjoying the rafting process by the time we reached half way and we wanted to continue further. After we reached 3/4th distance, our guide instructed us to get down into water. That moment again fear popped up as we didn’t know swimming, though we were wearing Life Jacket and there was no chance we getting drowned. But fear was still there and we just decided to face this fear also and followed the instructions of our guide and got down from our raft to float in the flow of water.
The moment we all were in water, there was just initial little struggle to adjust and then we just were lying on water which was taking us in its flow slowly and steadily. It was the most relaxing moment for each one of us and most accomplishing moment as we overcame our fear of water.
