Sit comfortably with your spine straight. Hands relaxed on your knees, palms facing up or down. Stare 30 seconds at the chakra image below, memorizing it. Steady your breath. Softly close your eyes and begin to visualize the chakra as your heart center. Imagine the chakra pulsing out a vibration (front and back) with each exhalation. When you have created a rhythm, slowly introduce the mantra "YAM" when you exhale. You can recite it vocally or silently to yourself.
Continue the meditation for 3-5 minutes or for as long as it pleases you.
