    Nothing much to say, I'm just a college freshman and novice tulpamancer.

  1. First of all, how long were you contemplating the possibility of making a tulpa before you sat down to actually start doing it? I know I had been contemplating whether or not I wanted to create a tulpa for several weeks before I sat down and actually started working on her. And lo and behold, my very first forcing session I got tons of emotions out of her. It was pretty awesome. So yes, a tulpa can become sentient extremely quickly. Second, yes, your tulpa could well want to be puppeted. It would be easier for him/her to learn how to move and speak if you did it for him/her for a while. Finally, yes, do the puppeting and stuff in your head. Imposition is notoriously difficult, so don't stress yourself out trying to do it too early.
  2. Tammy actually says her greatest fear is finding herself alone. That is to say, as unlikely as it may be, she thinks the scariest thing in the world would be to lose me. Though she doesn't really seem to like big crowds much, either. She's not really afraid of them, she considers them more tedious than anything else. To be honest, I don't like crowds much, either, so that trait probably just sort of rubbed off on her.
  3. Well, I thin the simplest explanation about what's happening is that she's expressing a lot of latent mental problems I suffer from, but have managed to suppress. To give you an idea of what kinds of disorders I used to have: when I was about four years old or so, I used to wash my hands until the skin was literally cracking and peeling off, refusing to walk on the spaces between floor tiles, and otherwise expressing symptoms of severe Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. In addition, I used to suffer from a number of Asperger's symptoms, Tourette's symptoms, and I had some major problems with aggressive behavior. I have learned to control all of these problems over the years. However, Tammy is just getting used to being inside my obviously miswired brain, and is starting to express odd symptoms that I learned to control a long time ago. I think the main thing we would really like here is an outside evaluation of exactly what's going on, and whether or not we should be concerned.
  4. It's a complicated situation. She has suffered from nervous breakdowns on several occasions, as well as Tourette's like symptoms, and a few other things that I'm not going to go into right now. Though most of these issues probably are not severe enough to be debilitating, I still want to help her in any way I can.
  5. This question is partly (read: almost entirely) born out of some problems my tulpa has been having. Anyway, what I was wondering is this: how would psychotherapy/ counseling work for treating a tulpa with mental illness? As someone who's tulpa has been and continues to exhibit a number of symptoms of mental disorders, I would really like to try some kind of therapy with her. The problem is that I kind of feel like a typical psychologist would assume that she is a mental disorder, rather than working on helping her through her problems. As for counseling her myself, the fact that she knows my opinions on anything she tells me makes it a little bit difficult to seem completely non-biased the way a good therapist is supposed to be. Not that this has really been a problem in our relationship, since we're pretty good at agreeing to disagree, but for purposes of therapeutic conversation this isn't exactly an ideal setup.
  6. Yes, it could. Not that there would be a real change in the anatomy of the teddy bear, but you could develop a voice in your head that only talks to you when you're in the presence of that teddy bear. It's even possible that you could see the teddy bear "move," either by you manipulating it subconsciously, or hallucinating the body moving around (though again, the teddy bear won't actually change position, only your perception would change). Think Calvin and Hobbes.
  7. I personally kind of consider a tulpa to be something slightly less valuable than a human, but something significantly more than a mere hallucination. Basically, I think that a tulpa's safety and wellbeing are important, but the host must come first under most circumstances.
  8. Well, the fact is that you can't be totally sure that any action was un-parroted. It's human nature to have trouble believing in things we can't completely understand. Having said that, it became pretty clear to me that it was my tulpa talking when she started saying things that I wasn't even thinking she would be interested in saying (for example, when she told me that she wanted to be Catholic, or when she came out as lesbian. Yes, I'm well aware that this is a kind of weird situation). As for what to do when forcing a non-speaking tulpa, I would say you're probably best off either narrating it's personality, or simply visualizing its form.
  9. I personally don't think there's really a specific required age. Having said that, though, I think it's probably best if you a) aren't in the process of going through puberty, when your hormones are going crazy, and b) not doing something else ridiculously stressful and time consuming (such as starting middle school or high school).
  10. It could. Though I suspect that it would be easier just to learn lucid dreaming the "normal" way (I've been working on it for what feels like forever to get even the quickest glimpses of my tulpa. Self-inducing a hallucination can be really, really tricky).
  11. A lot of people on this site created their tulpas by accident. I'm not quite sure how that happens myself, but whatever. As for how to contact it, I would simply suggest relaxing somewhere and doing your best not to think. And by that I don't mean pushing away any thought that enters your head, just don't focus on anything and let your mind wander where it will. There's a good possibility that as your mind is wandering, you could eventually "stumble into" this mystery thoughtform.
  12. Well, the thing is that all human skin feels about the same. The main difference between men and women is 1) shape, and 2) size. A typical woman is going to be much smaller and more delicate than a typical man. If you can see the shape of your tulpa, then you'll probably be able to feel that shape as well. And, like I said a couple sentences ago, the texture of the skin will probably feel about the same. If you're asking about um... other things... Sorry, but I can't really help you.
  13. Um... make something up? While humans do have very distinct smells, they can mask those smells with perfume, cologne, etc. Simply imagine that your tulpa is wearing some kind of perfume/cologne that you think smells pleasant.
  14. Honestly, I feel that a tulpa is basically a healthy and self-induced form of Dissociative Identity Disorder (formerly known as Multiple Personality Disorder). The thing is that in DID, a second personality is usually created through mental trauma, and is essentially used by the sufferer to absorb mental pain and anguish. I feel that "forcing" is simply a different way to get the same results (not absorbing pain, but creating a second personality). In DID, a new personality is usually designed specifically to stand up to a certain form of mental anguish. My conclusion is that there is some kind of subconscious "forcing" process similar to what we use, perhaps even starting out as "I wish there was someone else to bear my pain." Obviously, tulpas tend not to be created in such a violent manner, but the fact is that a tulpa is almost exactly like a secondary personality experienced by a DID sufferer (except that we consciously want our tulpas here, rather than creating them out of a desire to protect ourselves). While typically associated with some form of body or visualization, it is apparently not strictly necessary for a tulpa to have a hallucinatory body, or even a visualized form, so I do not think that the actual form of the tulpa is part of the core of what a tulpa is, and I will thus not include it in my theory.
