When you practice balancing of your heart chakra, you will be presented with the challenges which will require you to find the love for others and accept the fact that you are also loved by others and the Universe itself.
When the world is perceived through the heart only the truth can be seen. And the truth is that at the core of existence the prevailing energy and feeling is that of unconditional universal love.

How to Heal Your Heart Chakra?
Try to let go of judgement of others and yourself. Accept the fact that all humans, animals and plants come from the same origin and that at the core we are all good and we all want to be loved.
Try to feel instead of thinking about things. Letting go this way can make you feel exposed, however as the name Anahata (unstruck) suggests, nothing can hurt your deepest self, as it is supported by the universal unconditional love.
This energy of love flows through our hearts at all times, the only thing we need to do is to accept it.
