Deity Self-Portraits (Becoming One)

This Tantric practice, an active meditation visualization, involves merging oneself with a target deity - or more specifically, with visualizing the deity first external to oneself. Then while attuning to the energy signature of the deity, moving the visualized deity form from outside to inside oneself, merging (overlapping) bodies, chakras and energy meridians.

By taking on the cloak of the deity, simply by pretending "as if", one can begin to entrain one's energy to match. Little by little, the effect becomes stronger each time. This process can be amplified through visualization of beams of colored light and seed sound mantras flowing from the crown, throat and heart chakras of the deity into oneself before full merging.
