Emotions I Felt - AngelicSword - 07-11-2018

I did an active forcing session tonight, with one of those guided meditation videos again. During the last portion when I was talking with Arla, I felt what seemed extremely similar to the feeling of being very excited. I felt it throughout my chest for the most part, but also a tiny bit throughout my upper arms and waist. It seemed to be more prevalent when I was telling Arla that she was alive, that she is amazing and special and her own person.

I feel like it is, but I am wondering if this is a guarantee or strong indication that she has gained sentience, because I'm almost definitely sure that emotion was not mine.

So yeah, there's a phenomenon called "emotional bleed" that's fairly common in systems with tulpas. Basically, it is possible for you to directly feel your tulpa's emotions. If this is what has happened, it's pretty much certain that she's sentient. That said, I cannot say for certain that this is what has happened, as I do not fully know the details of your subjective state. It is quite likely the case, but just in case it's something else, I'd suggest keeping an open mind. When she's ready, she'll be able to communicate with you and then you'll know for certain.
