This is something I found out about hearing it mentioned on a podcast, though it's something I think I've tried to do on my own sorta in the past, but never did much.
Years ago I had dream where I was in some cave, and saw a bird *I believe eagle* sitting at the enterance, and a voice said become the bird. I was able in the dream to become a eagle, and change that left me...with that desire ever since, though it comes and go.
A few times over the years I had actually tried to imagine that desire and part of myself like a bird or a eagle, which sounds simular to something akin to a tulpa, and now kinda wondering if I should try to take what I tried in the past further and into a tulpa, as it's a part of me that I've always wanted to try to get closer too. I'm not sure if what I want to do is a tulpa or not, but I found out about this, and as I was researching it remembered my previous tries and how it was simular.
Sorry if a bit rambly :> Just kinda wanting to try it out as it would be very important to me if it works.
Are there any good guides? I've checked a few of them, but still. unsure of how it works, in the past it was trying to imagine that part of myself as a eagle, but was never sure how much of it was it, and how much was just myself...trying to imagine it.
