French Version:
dragonclaw has kindly taken much time to translate this entire guide into French. Currently, this version contains all sections that can be found in the original English version, but lacks the revisions done to other sections in the past.

Italian Version:
This version, translated by the user "dreamy" (you'll always be noobdreamer to me) should currently be up-to-date, besides the most recent English update.

Russian Version:
This version of the guide was recently translated by the user Leopold, of his own accord. Much thanks to him for the hard work.


For all the non-English versions of the guide, note the date of creation in comparison to the latest update of the English version. I will not tell you every time one of the versions is not completely up to date. You can figure that out yourself. If it was not up-to-date when it was posted, I will let you know as I did the French version.

For those of you who want to translate this guide:
Don't.
At least not yet. I should have made serious note of this earlier, but I intend to do some major revisions to this guide, such that any translation done now would be severely outdated by the time I'm finished.
On top of that, there is also a possibility that this guide may be taken down altogether.


As always, let me know what you think, and if there are any sections you'd like to see added.

It's worth noting that I still plan to reword/revise some of the paragraphs. I feel like I didn't get my point across as eloquently as possible. But until then, make do with my rough-draft wording.

"If this can be avoided, it should. If it can't, then it would be better if it could be. If it happened and you're thinking back to it, try and think back further. Try not to avoid it with your mind. If any of this is possible, it may be helpful. If not, it won't be."

RE: Kiahdaj's Absolute Guide to Tulpas

Huh, I had no idea you were working on a guide Kiahdaj.

I skimmed over it and it seems pretty solid. In fact, I kinda wish I had this guide when I first started. You did a nice job making this guide as broad as possible; it includes pretty much everything a beginner would need to know.

There is one thing I feel that this guide needs, though. It needs a section or a disclaimer that asks the reader to think about the consequences of making a tulpa. Most people don't seem to realize that creating a tulpa is a life-long commitment. They don't think for the long-term. That's when you end up with dissipations, attention starvation, and negativity in tulpa-host relationships. Not to mention hoards of accidental tulpa, or tulpas thrown in stasis because the hosts can't handle them. Potential hosts need to know that there are consequences for their actions, and that they need to take the process seriously. It doesn't help that the vast majority of new users are in their teens, and most teenagers just don't think about these things. This section would be a big help and I believe it's vital for success. I would add it around the "Why should I create a Tulpa?" or before the conclusion.

RE: Kiahdaj's Absolute Guide to Tulpas

Thanks a lot, for the kind words.

I'm very glad you mentioned the consequences thing. That was actually something I had in mind, earlier in the process. I made the mistake of not planning the guide out at all, so there were bound to be parts I'd forget, and leave out.
I will be sure to add that some time, but I just recently finished the guide after working on it almost non stop, so I'm in no mood to edit it right away.

"If this can be avoided, it should. If it can't, then it would be better if it could be. If it happened and you're thinking back to it, try and think back further. Try not to avoid it with your mind. If any of this is possible, it may be helpful. If not, it won't be."

I haven't actually read it yet, but it looks like a table of contents would be useful here.

I made a thing.

Its Marvelous Big Grin

I've learned its also vital for the host to practice a whole other concept, learning to actually enjoy it. If they dread forcing or don't see it as something to get them through the day it'll drain their will and they'll develop tulpa-fatigue (where the host gets tired of forcing and obtains mild belief issues) Stress and worry also seem to cause me to take a step back in development. I would treat, "Going with the flow happily and relax-fully" as you would narration, visualization etc.

Heres my motto. "Enjoy what you have now and any other progress is merely bonus!"

Amazing guide Kiahdaj. Also Hi Setsuna!!! Big Grin

That's not a bad idea. I do think people should really give the whole thing a read anyway, but if someone is looking for help in a specific area, a table of contents could be useful.
I'll probably add that, later.

Ahh, that's something I should have thought of. I'm a little surprised I didn't.

Yes, I will probably add that forcing should not be a chore, and ways to keep it from being such, in the "Mindset" section.



Thanks for the ideas, everyone.
At this rate, it truly will become complete. if I can work up the motivation to actually work on it more

"If this can be avoided, it should. If it can't, then it would be better if it could be. If it happened and you're thinking back to it, try and think back further. Try not to avoid it with your mind. If any of this is possible, it may be helpful. If not, it won't be."

Excellent guide! I found it very complete, yet clear and concise. I also learned something from it that could put to good use today, particularly the "do not think" approach when listening to your tulpa, which just this morning made Tresenella be able to say her first long coherent sentences. It was great! For long, I had went with either the "clear your mind" or the "fill your mind with thoughts" approaches with very little success.

Again, wonderful guide, and thank you, for me it has been really helpful! Wink

RE: Kiahdaj's Absolute Guide to Tulpas

But Kiahdaj... what if my tulpa likes turkey sandwiches?
*dun dun dun*

Anyway, great guide. I love it, it should definitely be spread around.
