Jhana and visualization practices

Has anyone here ever tried diety visualization or any other type of visualization practice while in jhana? I just tried this, and while it does tend to weaken absoprtion, it seems there could be some interesting utility to this.

I do something related but not visualization, just connecting with God (whatever your conception of God is just hold that concept in your mind - for some people it could be a mental image, for me it's just the idea of the entity that the word "God" brings to mind).

I do this sometimes for jhana, sometimes for metta.

It's interesting to send out metta and have 1000 times more coming back at you than you send out.
