So this is how you do it.
All you have to do is visualise a form in your chest area - as shown in the picture above.This is the spiritual heart ( hrdayam which is often mentioned in scriptures , not the anatomical heart. )
The form that you visualise is anything that you see as divine
Precisely, fill in that space with the favourite image of what you see as God or cosmos. It could be your favourite deity such as Shiva,a guru such as Sai,a symbol such as a linga, or basically anything that you have established as divine.
Choose the favourite picture of this divine entity.It could be a form that you adore.It could be that of head to toe, face alone, an insignia such as a trident .. or anything that links to the entity in the form you adore most.
Do this as frequently as possible.Try your best to make the visualisation or picture as vivid ( real ) as possible.Believe that as you imagine,the deity or form is already sitting in your spiritual heart !
You can strenghten this visualisation with any form of prayer you like as well.Instil in your mind that the entity has permanently resided in your spiritual heart.Get this rooted deeply into your consciousness.
Practice this and the results are for you to experience and share.
Why the chest region ?
So why do we use this region around the chest ? The Vedas describe this as the place where pure consciousness is centred or concentrated. In simpler terms,you can say that this is where the atma ( soul ) is centred. The Narayana Suktam accurately describes this as displayed below :
The Narayana Suktam, which is a veda mantra that expounds on meditation describes the location of pure consiousness in a human being.This pure consiousness is non-other than God or the supreme intelligence of the universe.
So this is the place you utilise to empower your spiritual potent.And this given method is perhaps the simplest way.
Lord Hanuman demonstrates the supreme consiousness in the form of Rama-Sita , seated in His Hrdaya ( spiritual heart ) .
