'Anahata' the translation is "unhurt, unstuck,or unbeaten." The heart chakra is in the midde of your body, balancing both matter and spirit. spirit being the three chakras above and world being the chakras below. Be open with your emotions (transparent) in other words pour your heart out either by talking or writing. This is to help heal your HEART(CHAKRA). practicing yoga can help by teaching you to live in the present and forgetting the past, past problems or past love ones, and if we worry about the future it may cause stress, there for yoga is a Technic to just live in today's moments(this is different from being prepared for tomorrow it doesn't mean you have to live a carefree life and not think of the consequences of tomorrow from the actions of today.
ACCEPTANCE, is a big one for the Heart chakra, accepting ones self, accepting what we can and cannot control or accepting our responsibility.
little tip: Accepting what you cant control can also provide you with happiness.
REMIND your self of three things daily:
- Love is the greatest healer(especially loving your self)!! <3
- "Acceptance is with the Heart not with the eyes"
- Live in present time("yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery and today is a gift, that is why it is called the present"-kung fu panda turtle master to panda)

"YAM" you may meditate chanting the word YAM when you feel that your heart is close(too focused on past or stressed about the future) and the vibration sound from chanting this is supposed to help you connect with your chakra.
