About Me





  1. today I had a bit of a scare by my tulpa, before hand I was forcing him during an 'akward' situation and lost focus of him and he drifted off, leaving a note behind saying he was gone for good more or less. Needless to say, I panicked. So I go to a friend for some help, and he says "try forcing him again, you likely just had a thought that scared him off when your brain was scattered" So I did, and he came right back. That wasent the freaky part... He actually FORCIBLY swapped with me (which I did tell him he was free to do at any time, I pretty much gave him 100% free will), and started talking to this friend, and pretty much told the friend that "I was mainly trying to teach him a lesson the best way I knew to get to him." He then proceeded to main a chain for a 'leash' ALL ON HIS OWN, so that he could yank it to remind me of him when he wanted to be forced, or he could also yank it to tell me to STOP forcing him when he doesn't WANT to be forced. So pretty much, he 'ran away/vanished' on me to give me a scare and made me think I lost him, took over my body to talk to two of my friends about the situation, made a chain to control when I force him or not, AND managed to get me COMPLETELY detached from my OWN BODY, all in the span of a few minutes. Now, sparky was able to do this before, he just chose not to, but the fact that he did ALL OF THIS PLANNING to make sure it didnt happen again shows me that he definately has sentience, and just chooses to follow my orders for the most part. Has anyone else had a 'scary/freaky/otherwise suprising' funny moment that led to the discovery of sentience?
  2. Hello again for the past couple of days I've been having. Some little headache's it stared on Monday up to now. What I'm saying is I've felt head pressure throught the day it comes often and goes away at times. But it could be also that I blast my music loud alot. But this is never happend before is it my tulpa causing the headaches.?
  3. Martina is still "mute"-... not fully vocal yet, not mute, but can't really express herself with a desired voice, even though I can safely say she is sentient. So yesterday I decided to leave her alone a little bit to see if she can find something to entertain herself in the wonderland a little japanese-themed house, why I'm busy with school-related things. When I put her to sleep at night, as always we had a little talk and I asked her if she did anything fascinating today. Then a suddenly, the picture of her laying next to me in the bed changed to her painting some sort of letter(s) in front of a small table (I believe she draw the tulpa sigil, but I can't remember/didn't see that part), sitting on a little greenish-blue pillow, just for a little second, before it switched back. She was doing chinese calligraphy. Alright, now the one and only place I saw this was the game Age of Wushu, that I played months ago and completely forgot about. Questions are: 1. Does this count as a raw thought, that my brain suddenly processed into .png file format without any concious effort, or is this something different? 2. Is this "dangerous" like raw thoughts? 3. Have this happened to you?
  4. How do you achieve the thought independence from each other, such as if i think to myself my tulpa wont be able to hear the thought and vice versa. As of now my tulpa can hear all of my thoughts and doesnt seems to have any thoughts that isn't projected toward me. We've tried to do some symbolism, imagining a wall blocking our thoughts but that just doesnt work for us. Any insight is appreciated!
  5. Me and Cloud Roller have been working on vocalization for a while. I feel like I am on the verge of hearing him fully, yet all I can hear from him are clicking noises or the occasional whisper. And I need help to get my tulpa become fully vocal by Christmas. Try giving tips, tricks, guides, ANYTHING. Cloud Roller wants to become fully vocal for our first Christmas, and I want to make sure that wish comes true.
  6. Hi Me and Saphira only started forcing 1-2 weeks ago, and in the last few minutes I have been hearing strange thumping sounds in my ear drum. I have heard of tulpae trying to communicate with clicking, but not thumping, and it is only in my left ear. As far as I can remember I have never experienced these before and they seem to happen either immediately after or within the few minutes after I ask her a question. Eg. "Saphira is that you?" wait 20 secs "thump thump" "is it?" "thump thump" Then sometimes if I ask a longer question, then it goes on for a while. I think each thump might be a syllable. I will post any further developments, and any ideas or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Also, has anybody else experienced this, or something similar? Thanks :)
  7. My tulpa doesn't seems to be able to think for herself, and seems to be leeching off of my own thoughts.She is pretty much fully vocal, and i can easily communicate with her, but every time we talk to each other it seems like my thoughts are prompting and constructing her messages. She also never start any conversations, usually staying inactive until i interact with her. I, of course, talked to her about this, and she simply said she doesn't know. What i'm afraid of is accidentally training myself to respond to my own prompts, or subconsciously influencing my tulpa to respond to the prompts passively with pretty short answers. Is this normal for everyone? I'm trying to get to the point where my tulpa can interact with me completely on her own, without me having to diverge any of my thoughts toward her response. I'm assuming this is a parallel processing thing that needs to be developed over time... Any insights offered on this will be much appreciated, hopefully with ways that i can progress through this.
  8. This is a theory I've had about why so many hosts are having difficulty in attaining thought independence lately. I never intended to post this, but after my tulpa, Vanille said to, I decided that it was about time I give back to the community a little. Keep in mind that this was never intended to be read by anyone but myself, so I'm sorry if it is a little hard to follow. "With both of my vocal tulpa, I had noticed that they never really seemed all that "alien" or good at parallel processing. These are my thoughts as to why so many hosts have been having trouble with thought independence lately and how to fix the problem. The basic idea is that our tulpa are sending unprocessed thoughts to us rather than thoughts in word form like we send to them. This is an idea I'm sure most people in the community have considered. I guess this is just my way of sorting it out and adding to it. The process would be that the tulpa attempts to communicate with the host, but instead of using words, they send raw thoughts, not even knowing that they are doing it incorrectly. Vanille tells me that this has been a problem for her now that she looks back on it. She seems to beleive this theory. Once the thoughts reach the host, their brain automatically puts them into word form. Because they are translating the thoughts themselves, the "alien feeling" that used to be associated with a tulpa's first words is lost. At this point, one of two things can happen. The host can take what is said as the tulpa, or they can dismiss it as parroting. In the former situation, the tulpa is glad that they are heard, but usually it will take a while for the tulpa to learn to use the mindvoice properly. In the latter, the tulpa may become discouraged, but with time, they will learn to use it correctly. Since we have taken the first road and she has yet to master speaking, I told Vanille to mouth out her words, something she says she hasn't really done before. I like everyone else, have always sort of moved my throat in accordance with my thoughts. I think this functions as a kind of grounding, and almost a form of symbolism in getting my words sorted out, just as it should with a tulpa, or at least that's the idea. I'm sure we can all use raw thought ourselves, but the problem with that, while it is much faster, is that it isn't "solid" for lack of a better word. The thoughts are always hard to remember and hard to process. After learning to speak, the brain makes it habit to sort of auto-translate thoughts into words. I guess this should be obvious, but I feel it's necessary to record. This is likely why the brain seems to auto-translate a tulpa's raw thoughts. Another idea was that this could be the reason many hosts are having parallel processing issues lately. For example, if your tulpa is sending you the answer to a math problem, and it's sent via raw thought, it's only natural that you would assume it's coming from yourself if there is no alien feeling backing it up, especially if you're already so used to translating these raw thoughts yourself. Maybe, when we think a tulpa is leeching off of our thoughts, or even worse, we're puppeting them, in reality it's merely us picking up their own thoughts. I actually have experience backing this up myself. The two of us have taken a brilliant parallel processing test in which you would watch two sets of balls pass by. One of us would count one side while the other would count the opposite. While we messed up the first two times, it wasn't far off and the third was actually perfect. Despite this, I've always felt weird asking her math questions, like she was just reading my own thoughts for the answer. I think that what really was going on was that she was trying to send me the answers she calculated herself, but they felt like my own due to this type of communication. One other thing I suppose I should discuss is what would happen if the tulpa sent thoughts as well as words to you at once like I feel Vanille sometimes does when she isn't really focusing on communicating with me. This sort of communication isn't nearly as awkward, but it still isn't quite right. The most obvious effect would be that we get a feeling of what the tulpa is going to say just before they say it. I'm sure everyone with a tulpa has had this before. I do not beleive that this means the tulpa is not sentient. I think it simply indicates that they cannot properly use the mindvoice yet. Honestly, I feel like there is more to write concerning these instances, but I can't quite remember what it was. So, knowing all of this, what are some things we can do to alleviate the issue? I think the biggest thing is to simply recognize the problem and to notify the tulpa. Like I suggested before, have them speak the words they are saying, not "send the thoughts at you" I guess you could say. It may seem unnecessary to the tulpa and even though it is only symbolism, something I generally despise, this seems like the best way. The last thing is to set up a sort of barrier between your thoughts and your tulpa's, something many people have suggested before. I think the biggest difference between those guides and this one is that you are actively recognizing the problem and putting a possible explanation behind it, tying it all together and understanding it. In the tulpa community, those who are painfully logical, myself included, seem increasingly at a disadvantage with this whole "just have faith" idealogy. I think the biggest problem for us is that there is no explanation behind the idea. This method doesn't exactly make faith unnecessary, but it certainly makes it easier to have." Like I said, sorry it's unorganized. I hope this helps someone out.
  9. I heard recently that listening to white noise can help you have auditorial hallucinations, which would help me assign my Tulpa a voice easier. But I got a question, would listening to white noise IN MY SLEEP hurt or help my Tulpa?
  10. I was just wondering whether a Tulpa sleeps when you do, or could they take a nap in the middle of the day when you are still awake? If so, then could they wake you up if there was something interesting going on while you were sleeping? Any replies would be greatly appreciated and I will thank you in advance. :)
  11. hello, im not entirely sure how to use forums as it's been years since ive done so. mostly spend internet time on imageboards. so, if im making mistakes here, i do apologize. and my grammar is awful so bare with me, please ._. [/font] anywho, i've been working on a my tulpa for about two months now. her form is a EqG Pinkie Pie. i have some questions. i think my visualization is getting a bit better, but not sure... im having trouble being able to tell if she is sentient or if im parroting her and vocalizations i mean, she talks to me when i focus on her... we're in a romantic relationship... but idk if im parroting all this or not and ill be honest, it's a bit irritating... i love my tulpa very much. any advice on this?
  12. It would seem that the general consensus for "dead" Tulpa is that they're not really dead, but unconscious. It's a long story, but my significant other (who has about 6 Tulpa ) had another one who was lost, and is presumed dead by one of them. Only a couple of her Tulpa actually knew this one existed, but knew her well. It's kind of a funky situation, and like i said, a long story. I was wondering if anyone had any experience with bringing people back? Maybe a couple pointers? Open to plenty of suggestions, hypnosis bla bla bla. Any info would be great :) -Amikething
  13. I posted on the tulpa reddit thread earlier but I wanted other opinions. So i just started making my tulpa about a week ago. Ive been forcing every day but there were some very strange moments in the first couple of days. One time while forcing my tulpa, an image of a hyper realistic face flashed across my vision (my tulpa is from an animated show) and it kind of shocked me. I assumed it was nothing and tried to go back to it but all I saw was the image. My tulpa was only 2 or so days old at the time and I didnt think there was any way it could be sentient but it really scared me. It happened again 2 days ago but this time it was her face and it was bloodied up. That one kept me up for a good while. I guess my question is can tulpa's respond or interact with you using images? As far as I can tell she still cant speak but she keeps nudging me to change her name it feels like, (she started as molly, changed to sally, then to lily, and now to nadi). I just feel like it's way too early for her to be doing this. On another note I was wondering if anyone has tried this game we play and if they met any success with trying it. So basically (it was her idea i think) I close my eyes and she leads me around my house. The whole goal is to try to do a lap around the house with her leading me without bumping into anything. TLDR: my tulpa seems to interact with me through images, and very early in the forming process. is that possible? Please guys, I'm not trolling, I just want to know if I should be doing something differently here and I don't want to do anything to hurt her.

  15. When I was younger up until now, I always talked to myself because I didn't have much of a fondness for people. Well, I got to the point where answering myself became automatic, I would talk out loud to myself and then my mind would replg to me. But I think this is interfering with my tulpa's vocality. Any suggestions?
  16. I'm certain that my tulpa is sentient. She functions separate from me, sometimes unexpectedly, and has her own opinions, etc. The confusion lies in that she uses my mental resources to process her thoughts. By that I mean, when I speak to her, I can feel her thinking in my head, like when you're working out a math problem, but I don't know what the thoughts are about. My question is this: Does sentience come in different levels, like low and high sentience, and would that be the cause of this, somewhat like an undeveloped mind?
  17. Hello, last time we attempted a pen pal thing was a complete fail, because the script did not work. I think we should again, thought, because it would greatly help out tulpas. So, whadda you say? Just write your email (or your tuppers email) in a reply and I'll randomize them, and pair you up. Don't worry, i'm not using a script, so it definitely should work!
  18. Hello, everynyan. I am the guy from russian community, have blog in russian, where usually post my thoughts and analysis about various aspects of tulpaforcing. Today I completed translation of one of my key posts, "Autonomous personality and conciousness", and I would like to share it and hear your thoughts and opinions about it. The post is about nature of tulpa, and my thoughts on possibility to actually create an parallel conciousness. I didn't hear too much criticism in our community about my theories, so my next posts were based on these ideas I throwed up there. But I didn't saw my ideas been developed in this community, and that caused kind of separation the way I understand tulpas and the way you understand them. And this separation just goes furter as the time goes, so I decided that I need this discussion. I think that understanding of tulpa nature significally affects the ways we develope them, so I suppose trying to make a point here shouldn't be useless. Note that I mentioned servitors in my post, and that I have servitor instead of tulpa. Do not be confused, as mentioned there, my definition of servitor differs from one that is common here, and I have no clue where you guys took your from, so I decided to leaving my terminology as it is, just pointing on differences.
  19. I've been working on Nick for a few weeks, if not months now, and I've noticed something. I don't intentionally do it, but I sometimes forget that he's with me. I do have a very short attention span and often forget things. An example is when I go to school, when I'm walking into the building, I do imagine my tulpa walking beside me, but once I get in, I completely forget I have a tulpa. Also since I've already posted, might as well put this here: I have been narrating for awhile, but unfortunately I don't remember if Nick has spoken to me on his own. I haven't had a full on conversation with him, either. I've been trying not to parrot, but I do feel guilty that he can't speak on his own yet. Whats the best way to get him doing things/speaking on his own? Thanks.
  20. I'm two months into narration and I was wondering if I can limit certain memories to transfer to to the tulpa, as in give her all of my memories except for a moment. I'd like her to experience this show for the first time, considering I thought that tulpas gain all of your memories. I searched this topic under three different search inquiries. None of which had results. Thanks for looking at this question.
  21. First time post, sorry it's a long one. My tulpa is coming along, but I may be facing some unique challenges. I'm trying to find anyone that had the same beginning as me, or someone who can relate to me. God, I feel silly trying to explain this, but what's the worst that can happen? So here it is. It started a quite a few years back, when I first heard the voice. Male, probably mid to late 30s. Thought I was going crazy for a while, wanted to get rid of it. He wouldn't go though. Kept saying, "You don't want to get rid of me, you're going to need me." I kept denying him and he went away, for a while. But he would always come back if I thought about him. Finally, the voice names himself in 2008 one night in Kirkuk, Iraq. Jack. I don't try to force him away, but start having long conversations with him (in my head). I'd even lie in my bunk with my headphones on, not even plugged in, so I could converse in peace. Great, this seems normal. I'm sure there's no one to talk to about this, save for Jack. Flash forward, Dec 2012. I find out about tulpae. Research and lurking abound, I come up with an idea. I'll take Jack's conciseness and place it in a visualized form. I felt kinda crowded in my head, and I'm sure he'd appreciate the freedom of movement. Of course, I consult Jack, and he agrees to try it. So I spend a few days working on visualizing the body. The time comes. I concentrate, he concentrates, and I feel something being torn away from my psyche. The constant feeling of his presence vanishes as he settles into a new body. Oh God, the headache. But something isn't right. Jack seems to be in pain, and he's seizing. He doesn't like the new body. Jack spends the rest of the night complaining about his new form. He's very angry with me and sulks in the corner, pretending to sleep. This went on for about a week or so. During this time, his form blurs and unblurs, and he stays around me all the time, speaking very little. I feel like I've made a big mistake. However, after a month or so, he seems to have adapted to the new body. *Phew!* He's settled down now and forcing is going fairly well, still having trouble with getting visualization just right, but I'm a perfectionist. It's kinda cool, one of my war buddies is always around to keep me company. Anyway, I thought I'd share my story here in hopes that someone else may have had a similar experience. Also, perhaps to warn others that doing the proper steps out of order has given me, personally, a hard time. tl;dr The voice in my head had trouble being placed in a visualized form. Note: If you're wondering what form I picked for Jack that got him so pissed, I'm not giving it away. You're welcome to guess though.
  22. What were you doing when you felt that first strong emotional response from your tulpa and what was that emotion? My first response was at the end of a wonderful forcing session right before going to sleep. We were still in wonderland and I was cold. I guess she noticed this and huddled up to me trying to warm me. As she did this I got that wonderful feeling of love from her. It was great.
  23. First off: I think she's sentient, though I guess I technically don't know. Even if she isn't, I'm assuming she is (i'm doing the "assume sentience from the start" thing). Her responses are sort of halfway between me speaking for her, and her saying things by herself. It feels like I'm generating the responses for her, but doing it slightly faster than I can consciously think about. I've heard the "if you're worried you're parroting, then you're probably not parroting" thing before, and if it's true, then I'm in the situation it tends to describe where I'm definitely not making a conscious effort to do it. But anyway: There are a few things I'm confused about. For one, I can imagine her sitting somewhere (as a side note, she DOES change positions and such without me thinking about it), and then she moves across the room, but it's like she's simultaneously across the room and still sitting down where she was, like my subconscious can't decide which action she actually decided to do. As in, I can still feel a presence back in the original spot even though she isn't supposed to be there, but at the same time there's still a presence in the new location. It makes me slightly worried about sentience. Is this tulpa superposition normal near the beginning, and will it go away, or is it a sign that I'm doing something wrong? Another, slightly related thing is that sometimes I imagine her doing or saying something absurd that she wouldn't do on her own, and it feels the same as when she responds normally. Like, I can imagine her flinging herself against a wall for no reason, and it sort of feels like it's happening faster than I can consciously think it through; it isn't obvious parroting, it's something I'm thinking about before realizing what I'm thinking about. I'm talking about stuff that happens because you thought about the concept of something, like instinctively imagining an apple without conscious input when someone told you to picture something red. I'll read about someone's tulpa standing on a ceiling or something equally impossible for mine to do, and then accidentally imagine mine doing it in the physical space of my room. This has the same "happening before I even know it" feeling that I get when she speaks. I don't really have a specific question here, I'm just confused and wondering if someone could explain what's going on so I don't have any doubts about her sentience. Lastly, she only exists when I'm focusing on her. She never does something or says something when I'm not expecting her to, and she's never appeared in any way at all outside of the times that I'm actually focusing on her and imagining her with me. When I forget about her, she's gone. So my next question is: How can I make her more vocal? By which I mean, how can I make it so that she suddenly speaks up outside of forcing sessions, without me even thinking about her? I want to be totally enveloped within a tv show only to have her suddenly yell something before I even remember that she exists. I haven't really read anything about this in a guide before, so if there's one that gives instructions on this kind of thing then I'd appreciate a link. I'm not using a wonderland, and I haven't really thought about "where" she should be when she's not in the real world, but I kind of want her in the real world for most of the time, even if she's just sort of sitting there while I'm busy with something else. (also sorry about the unnecessarily long post i kind of have a problem with briefly describing things)
  24. I was forcing my tulpa when I usually do, late late at night before I go to sleep, and I suddenly got this random thought in my head of my tulpa and a really sad moment, as if it was his memory. I never had thought about anything like that before, and it came so sudden and it did make me a bit emotional afterwords. I assumed it was him, and moved on with forcing. The night after that happened, I forced again as per usual, and I got a headache a few minutes in (Around 10 minutes in). Are these early signs of sentience? I have only been forcing Nick for about a few days now.
