    Hi! I'm Reisen. Just Reisen now, the others have their own accounts (they used to use this one):

    (listed below now thanks to the account switcher)

    My host is Luminesce, and we've been around for a while. Flandre, Tewi and I since ~2009-2010, and Lucilyn since April 17th 2015. But she's grown a whole lot in that time a lot faster than us, so we're all on the same level of.. being tulpas?

    We primarily communicate on the forum whilst switched, so anything from us here came from us directly. Tewi and Lucilyn switch most often for their own reasons, while Flandre and I usually do so at Lumi's request (generally to be active).


    (You can PM any of us individually now because the account switcher shows PMs on attached accounts)

  1. Okay, I'm going to switch out now! I think that time was good for me, my mindvoice is clear and I feel like myself. Switching is really good forcing after all!
  2. Spent some time watching over our outdoor cat while I let her walk around inside (as opposed to being in her cage) since it's too cold outside to keep her out there, but we can't let her roam because our indoor cat is a little territorial. I think she appreciated walking around for 45 minutes or so. Actually I had let her outside (cage is right by the door) first and she actually went out in the absolutely freezing cold and seemed content to be out there, following something like a whole day of being in her pen-cage. So it seems like she'd actually prefer freezing cold to boredom, as we'd expect, and that's why I made sure to let her wander around and check out our house for a while. Your pet's mental health is important, too! Luckily she's an old cat who isn't very active these days and would already spend most her time just sitting in one or two places anyways, unlike our indoor cat who frequently runs up and down the stairs for no reason.
  3. The state of hazy thoughts and all that is called "Hypnagogia" upon falling asleep or "Hypnopompia" upon waking up, and is part of a normal's human sleep cycle yes, although some people wake up/fall asleep more quickly than others or are less conscious for it. Those times can be really good for visualization practice! As for switching.. for the reverse maybe, we found in the past that the pre-waking-up period could be used to switch if we somehow decided to, but I don't know what to say about it happening when trying to switch. Seems like a not so related phenomenon, but I guess in the end it's mostly brainwave stuff, so if you wanted to do a lot of in-depth research to not get much of an answer, you could look into alpha/beta/delta/gamma/theta waves maybe? We don't experience that ourselves, we only use a very quick-and-simple meditative state (really just focusing on our breath for 20 seconds or so, maybe more if we're really unfocused) to switch. But y'know, I bet some 2012 tulpamancers who could switch might've tried like, super deep hour long meditations to do it, so I wouldn't count that concept out because of our experience.
  4. Well he said "are always cat", not "are always a cat", which just means Bear's posts are always bear. I think I can agree with that
  5. Candy-wise, we've always preferred "red" flavors to anything else (I think that accounts for both strawberry and cherry). Well, I don't know how many of us have had candy aside from chocolate, I guess it was more a childhood thing for Lumi. I'd say red flavors for juices and stuff too, but we actually like some other fruit... well, pretend-fruit-flavors too. I guess Lumi branched out more as he got older, before he kind of stopped eating/drinking all that sugary stuff some years ago anyway But yeah, pink Starburst are the best, no question (but they're all great of course)
  6. They were probably somewhere between 1 and 3 years old at worst.. hopefully. Not hard or anything, just tasted really bad. Hey, you actually said that right when I was drinking orange juice earlier lol
  7. Good night, it's weird to be awake when you guys go to sleep. It's temporary..
  8. It was a little vague to say for sure. "I can still feel everything that's happening" could be confused for simply being aware of it, though more likely implies not being fully dissociated. Aside from a successful switch entailing the host basically being a tulpa for the duration, on the tulpa's side, they should be the one thinking in the "place" the host normally does. That's not so easy to describe in words, but basically the host is pushed to the side (presumably - they're just "wherever" the tulpa usually is) and the tulpa is front and center. While getting tired quickly will be normal, even from the first successful switch it should be pretty clear to the tulpa that they're experiencing being in the host's position for the first time. There is still room for blending issues of course, though, which would likely be an unsureness of who is actually the one fronting/thinking. While it's awesome if you can avoid that entirely, I think experiencing it does mean you're on the right track to learning switching. Possession can still lead to blending, but is far less related and natural to occur. (For people who do possession and have blending issues - you're probably doing the kind of possession we consider very similar to switching to begin with)
  9. Expired candy is usually pretty gross though, don't eat that. Lumi once (like 14 years ago) had a couple Reeses? or something from one of those glass bowls sitting on the counter at a friends' house, and they must've been years old because he had to spit them out lol.
  10. "Oops, better make sure no one was last poster for like three straight hours-" Last post 1 minute ago Well, hi Rouge.
  11. Possibly, the end result of switching is that the host is basically equivalent to a tulpa, for the duration. Though until you're very experienced with switching, the host will have a much easier time associating with the front and the tulpa may get tired after some time (and, most likely, won't be able to stay switched after sleeping). But with enough practice (how much? At least a few weeks, maybe even months of consistent practice) anyone in our system for example can stay switched 24/7 for as long as we want, and we've done so for as many as 2 months straight! But, that's just our preference, we distribute our time based on who wants it or sometimes who's best suited to deal with something. You guys don't have to switch so often by any means, but it does get easier the more you do it
  12. Speedrunning communities for a game tend to innately get along despite exclusively competing with each other, because if you find a new strategy that's faster it's automatically made known to everyone else in the community and they really appreciate any time saves found for the game(s) they speedrun. Interesting dynamic, huh? Everyone sort of roots for everyone to be better than each other. Oh, but we found that posting to be last post strategy a long time ago..
  13. Good night! (Isn't it silly how someone intending to win this thread would actually prefer no one respond to them?)
  14. It's nice to see a system like your guys' still active and making progress, I feel like most people just kind of give up or at least stop posting in their PRs after a year. Oh, also we still read your PR for some reason even though we usually don't read PRs (well, I might, but the rest of my system doesn't except for specific systems'), so I wanted to tell you that!
