When you concentrate on your chest area, it is a physical location. First you may concentrate on the surface of the chest to feel the sensations on the surface. Then try to move deeper inward to feel the space within the chest area. There, feel the presence of a steady flame. Connect to the finest feelings there, feel the warmth. The more you focus all your attention, you will be able to feel a gentle warmth, and the image of a flame may arise naturally. Be gentle and loving in your gathering of attention. Nothing to be forced, but move inward with reverence, as if you are entering a sacred space where a flame is lit.

See it, feel it and hold it within as a guardian of the flame.

The more you practice the more it reveals.
