  1. WE seem to have a lot of issues when it comes to guides dealing with symbolism, so perhaps they deserve something of their own section. That said I'd disapprove by current standards for the aforementioned possibly jarringness of this technique, and the possibility that this could backfire via intrusive thoughts.
  2. using it's imagination -> its approved for tips; I've seen this sort of thing before but I dont know if it was typed out even as "fully" as this one is so this probably deserves a spot there.
  3. Jared from subway approves for tips
  4. Approved. Looks professional, has minimal if any spelling/grammar issues and is presented pretty well, though I don't know about it being put in guides as it really isn't written like one. I'd Definitely like to see it in resources or tips and tricks, as it is quite good for what it is.
  5. its interesting how misleading the typesetting can be - the last part literally begins with "WHY YOU SHOULDNT CREATE A TULPA" in bold. Short and nothing too new, but doesnt add enough content to stand alone as a guide so I'll say its tipoworthy for now.
  6. I don't really know where I'd put this... It originally seemed like something that could be at home in resources, but upon inspection it wouldn't really fit in. I'll go with the majority so far here and relegate it to tips and tricks for lack of a more specific area that it would fit better into.
  7. >>and to respect each other's wishes and limits. Wow, great advice. >>Worrying and doubting is cancerous to the learning process, so try to stay observant and optimistic. Could be frontloading and is a bit hostile considering the connotations of the word cancerous. Encouraging belief is fine but persecuting (for lack of a better word) nonbelief isn't >>If you're bothered by doubts or worry during the process, belief implanting might be helpful. It can help you get rid of the doubts that are limiting you, and make the process easier through positive reaffirmation. It can also be helpful with learning other tulpa related skills, or improving yourself in any area of your life. Belief implanting is detailed in Fede's guide. Feel free to reference another guide in passing, but this part seem unnecessary here to me. (Move it to the end?) All in all it seems like a mature and well-written guide even if I got the impression that the author's personality bled through a bit too much (Not necessarily a bad thing, personal taste etc.) Do try to write the guide so that someone who is frustrated and doubting won't feel put off by it, that's one reason guides exist. I have nothing but minor complaints along with deserved praise, Approved for guides.
  8. Was what I was after Approved For Resources
  9. -Force More is legitimate advice. Force More. -Perhaps provide a link or explanation on colored noise. -You talk about the "state" but don't necessarily say what it is -Intrusive thoughts can be a major issue that you seem to gloss over (in the original paragraph), simply asking the tulpa if it was them can produce their response in tandem with a respones that says the opposite: i.e. "Was that you?" "Yes, No." -Part of the assumption of parroting seems to be the fact that tulpic speech (especially early on) has to do with what the host is consciously thinking about at the time which seems to be normal but is often not anticipated. -Watching TV and Surfing the internet might be good tulpa activites, but they are also severely distracting. -Usually among those seeking help for hearing a tulpa better proxying them is not an option, and private dialogue may produce better results for some. Due to the nature of narration, it is probably best for early conversations to take place between just the tulpa and the host. The host also has more control this way over what the tulpa experiences, and can shield them from early drama, and/or "Unpleasentness" that is indemic to the internet. Approved for Tips and Tricks, though a few of them may need to be revised slightly to take account of a wider audience.
  10. -You needn't sell yourself short in your introduction, it may frontload people into not taking your guide seriously -The first paragraph seems unnecessary -Second Paragraph seems grammatically awkward -"The body must be in alignment" What? -"Zafu Meditation Cushion" -"Directly onto the floor" Should be "Directly on the floor" or even just "on the floor." -"Visualize Stronger" -> "Visualize Better" -"Personally I always think their descriptions missing something and so have decided it's a very personal experience. " Do you feel you have overcome the apparent feeling of missing something with this guide? How is it different from any other Meditation Guide out there? The grammar and sentence structure of this article could use some revisions - it is clear that the author has a clear picture of what they are trying to convey but they seem at a loss for adequately explaining it to others, which is the general purpose of a guide. As such, despite being written in a guide-like fashion, I agree with the suggestion that this should be moved to tips and tricks; it relates more to the theory and practice of meditation than it does to tulpas in general and has a few minor grammatical errors which make it (as of now) seem a bit less professional than what we like to accept as a guide.
  11. I'll add a +1 vote for joshua, and a slight note about the quote above "from" me differs from my actual votes on the last page, I don't know what exactly happened there.
  12. Quilten +1 Quora -1 sushi +1 Dog -1 Swashy +1 Fennec -1 Kronkle +1 My experiences with Quora and her system suggest that they are in this for political reasons rather than actual concern or interest, so I cannot in good conscience vote them up. This is putting how I feel about their participation lightly. Similarly, I cannot vote Dog in because the few interactions I've had with him suggest he can be immature at times and has been known to be a bit of a troll. I feel that the Guide approval team should have a constituency of members that have had more positive experiences with tulpas; for this reason I feel fennecgirl would not make a good candidate, especially because of the recency of certain negative events in her tulpamancy experience. I've upvoted all others, but have no experience with Sushi or Quilten. I do seem to remember that Kronkleberry can be angered a tad more easily than would be optimal, but I do not feel that that should disqualify them from this because of the mostly nonconfrontational work done in the GAT.
  13. The majority of Gat discussions take place outside of, so in their context the server does not default to it when bringing up "The IRC."
  14. I'll change my nomination from Joshua (Who can't do it due to his home situation) to Kronkleberry; They also come from the reddit part of the community and have been with it since the very beginning, and seem to have a good reputation throughout various parts of the community.
