Hi! I'm Cozmo. In this guide, I'll detail how to visualize and form a tulpa's body the way I did. If you are more artistic, this guide should help.
So, first thing's first -- you will need:
- The ability to see your Wonderland well
- Good visualization skills
You do not need to have a vocal tulpa to do this.
Also, your tulpa that you are forming does not need to be sentient. The tulpa I formed using this method was not sentient!
[Cozmo: It is much easier if they are sentient though, so they can tell you what they want on their body.]
First off, delve into the world of your wonderland. Make sure everything can be seen clearly with your mind's eye. Find a flat place in your wonderland, and impose something alike to a "pose stand".
This "pose stand" can be anything from a simple block of wood to an advanced Second Life-esque pose stand that you might see.
First off, we'll start with the head. First, form a white sphere above the pose stand, the height depends on how tall your tulpa will be. Now, imagine what type of aspects the sphere might have -- shiny, matte, dull? Try to focus on these things. If you can do this, you should be able to complete the next few steps.
1. Begin to form your tulpa's head off of the previously imposed sphere. If it's some form of animal, form it's snout. Imagine yourself kneading and stretching the shape like clay. Pinch the little details into the head. Shape the face out exactly how you want it to be, or as your tulpa dictates.
2. Begin to "texture" your tulpa's head. Imagine what colour the head might be, where the colours are darker, or where the colours change. Then, apply a texture on top of the colour. If your tulpa has fur, apply a fur-like texture to the head. Imagine yourself brushing the fur into the head with a comb.
Imagine yourself zooming in on your tulpa, adding in the fine details like the tear ducts in the eyes or the whiskers on their face.
3. Now we'll look at the sense aspects of the head. Imagine what the head would feel like if you were to rub your hand against it. Would it feel light and fluffy, firm, soft? If they have fur on their cheeks or hair, imagine you running your fingers through that. Imagine how their head feels temperature-wise when you put your hand on their forehead.
You can also imagine what they smell like at this point too.
4. After you've formed their head, they should be a literal floating head over the pose stand. Imagine what the cast shadow looks like.
At this point, you can begin forming the body too.
5. To form the body, do all the above steps with each body part. Add a neck, then a chest, then two arms, etc. etc. It should get easier as you go. When you get to the hands, imagine you are intricately sculpting a real hand out of clay, putting in fine details like wrinkles on the hand or the lines on the palm.
6. If the tulpa isn't sentient yet, touch the body, and imagine it falling to the ground. Imagine how the body would fall. Imagine yourself picking up the body and posing it on the stand. Try posing it in various positions for fun!
(If your tulpa is sentient, skip this step)
7. You're done!
