The upAsya devatA's body is a mAyika sharIra created on the spot so that the upAsaka has the perception of his upAsya. There is a vision and the object of the vision.

Hare Krishna

And it will not stop just seeing the mAyika shareera out there!!  The upAsya devata's body would interact with the upAsaka, guide him in dharma mArga / jnana mArga, distribute the karma phala,  clears the doubt if any on his physical presence etc.  Though it is purely individual experience as a result of purusha tAntra sAdhana one should agree that upAsya devata sAkshAtkAra is the result of karma / ananya bhakti / dhyAna sAdhana and it is not as easy as seeing the snake in place of rajju in dim light!! 😊 

Hari Hari Hari Bol!!!
