  1. Does anyone know of any good guided visualization sound files? I'm thinking of the kind of things that describe a location like a forest or beach in so much detail that you can really experience it in your mind with multiple senses. I feel like something like that could help give me a boost into being able to visualize my wonderland and tulpa better. I'm a very verbal and audio based learner, which is why this approach really sticks out to me. And ideas would be great. Thanks so much!
  2. okay so i have been really struggling with the creation process, not so much dedication but were to start and how long to stay in one area, etc. so a couple days ago i sat down and decided before anything i will create a wonderland, and i have been having the hardest time creating one, this morning tried and failed on deciding the location/biome. i got frustrated and quit again, but about half an hour ago i was thinkning up a rough vizulization of an old japanese building when i got a near perfect minds eye vizulization of an anceint(greek?), marble-column, altar covered in vines on the edge of a cliff. i could view it from above, and almost walk around in side of it. was this my tulpa sending me a wonderland, cause it never onced crossed my mind. im also confused because i havent even thought up a form, i was just gunna let my tulpa become what it feels it should be. i have done a little personality, but other then that i have no signs of my tulpa being sentient.
  3. I took a break a bit ago due to some RL problems (I had issues visualizing before that though) and came back to tulpa forcing, and having an extremely hard time trying to visualize What my problem is I am trying to focus VERY hard on making things appear (If I don't focus hard my mind will immediately wander to something stupid) so if I'm trying to describe her or think about her it has to be with immense focus it seems recently. However I'm so intent on seeing something (hell, anything!) I just can't get anything to appear A quote from this guide "When you focus too intently on any sensation you can block it out, you can end up questioning yourself and sensing nothing (the same problem some people have with visualization). You want to take note of all of the details you could possibly imagine, it is better to have lots of vague notions rather than only one or two developed inputs, try not to focus too hard on any specific sensation." I think perfectly describes my problem. I've tried the suggestion of image streaming via a friend and after reading a few things, but as said, I lose focus immensely fast if I don't give it my all, and when I super-focus I'd put it as I'm trying too hard, thus having issues :C I guess my question is, what can I even do about this? I've tried a few of the focus guides, but my mind is just so hectic anymore I can't get anything done
  4. Yet another thread about visualization. Yeah, I know. But I have read tons of guides, threads and posts, still I haven't found anything that answers completly my question (or maybe I'm just too stupid...). So, I'm "creating" my first tulpa (I started three days ago). I first created the wonderland, wich is basically a white empty land. Then the tulpa, wich is a blue globe. I don't like the idea of changing his body, or even creating his personality. Maybe he doesn't care, maybe It's just me, but I don't find this very respectful. Plus, since he's "trapped" in my mind, I wanted to give him his own world. So what I told him is that I wouldn't interfer, that he has the complete control of his world and his body, and that I completely trust him. Now I'm narrating all day long, and he's always giving me headaches. Ok, now, what has all this stuff to do with visualization? Everytime I "visualize" the wonderland with my tulpa, I just imagine a white land with a blue globe in it. So, If I'm always imagining the same thing, how is the wonderland and the tulpa going to change? I have no idea (I'm not saying I want to see changements today or tomorrow, I just want to know how It works...). Have I to wait until he (the tulpa) becomes indipendent? Is this going to make the process slower\harder? Is visualization much different from imagination (someone says yes, someone says no...)? Am I doing something wrong? I hope my english isn't too bad (I'm italian).
  5. I've had a tulpa for a day, and I've already been able to communicate with her, though I've seen a figure that looks kind of like how I imagined her tulpa to look, but it's slightly transparent, but seeable nonetheless. Is this normal? The reason I ask this is because I've only had this tulpa for one day, and usually it takes weeks for something such as this to happen. [ QUESTION: ] It this normal?
  6. I've been using JD's Guide to Visualization to start to visualize and thus impose my two tulpas into reality. After some thought and a talk between Ruby and Rainbow Dash, we've come to the decision that Dash will be the first one for forcing. We began with the whole visualization thing (and apparently I'm pretty far ahead, since not only can I see with my mind's eye really easily (I blame my 17 years history with my fanfiction/wonderland, which every night for about 2 hours I treat it as if it's a television show, but I can also see some pretty solid color, and she's pretty detailed in my mind's eye.)) Problem is, when I try to train my mind's eye to see her as a whole form and not just as parts, she is very animated and has very high energy, and is unable to stand still long enough for me to mentally 'map out' her profile, I guess. What should we do?
  7. Okay so I've recently started creating my tulpa her name is mary. anyway when i talk to mary (or force) i need to imagine a form otherwise i don't feel like I'm talking to anybody, so i imagine her as best i can but all i can kind of get is what she would be wearing (blue jeans, full sleeve white undershirt, blue overskirt) and flashes of hair (brown) and different facial expressions when i am talking about her personality (i.e. a smile when i am talking about how nice she is). 1) i guess my questions is am i doing this right? 2) is my visualisation meant to be this bad? like i can't "see" anything just imagine i can see them if that makes sense. 3) how do i improve my visualisation (like exercises). thankyou for your help sorry for the noobyniss XD
  8. How to Image-Stream: The basis of this technique is to circumvent our poor human ability of mental concentration and make it that of a curious child totally immersed in their beautiful land of imaginative play. Once you begin, you need not worry about losing concentration. 1. Sit or lie down with your tulpa in which it is easiest for you to conjure images on the back of your eyelids. Your eyes are more sensitive closed than open. Focus on seeing something, it need not matter what, or how detailed. It will appear soon. 2. Loose the flow on your mouth of creative expression and begin describing out loud every aspect of visual detail the eyes can possibly analyze. Color, shape, detail, space in the environment, texture, especially any visually striking textures that you see. Do this in as rich detail as you can possibly express, continuously. Do this as fast as you possibly can! 3. Keep going. Do not bother worrying about whether or not you should express something, just express it, and do not remove your focus as you describe it. It is imperative to do this in rich of detail as possible. Rather than saying "what", as in, "the beach, a car, etc", describe texture, how the sand looks in your hand, how sparkly the little yellow or black specs are in the sand, how it flows through your fingers onto the beach, how it is carried by the salty air across the surface of the ground, how you can see the entire beach and some birds with black spots on their bodies, all the while looking on and watching it intently, never letting your eyes go from your description. You may even add some of your other senses in order to solidify it. Don't feel like you have to switch between types of detail all the time, like texture and color, but you can continuously describe one type for a while and then move on to another. As you move from scene to scene, keep doing this, watching them and describing every little detail that your mind can analyze. Think about poetically expressing yourself, as deep and beautifully as you can. It doesn't necessarily have to be a poem, just make sure you keep going deeper with your analyzation. It does not take very long to begin generating images of amazing lucidity, however if you set the pattern of continuously describing the same level of detail it will take longer than normal. If you find you can't describe the images fast enough, you may describe them using your mind voice without full sub-vocalization (just the thought intent) however be mindful so as not to reduce your focus on the activity. Soon the torrent of mental images will widen, and when you close your eyes a vast landscape of beautiful textures and details will greet you. You will find that making these details will be like a new "high score," and after you walk away it will be easier to recreate it a second or a third time and so on. Therefore, before moving on, try to increase this high score as much as humanly possible, that way when you come back it will be simple to recreate exactly that. This means that a long continuous session may be better than several sessions broken up over time that do not really show much increase, or it may mean that several sessions will keep you from lapsing back to less detail. It will be exponentially beneficial for every unit of increased max detail, or "high score" that you increase before moving on. After becoming proficient, you can walk around, play with things, and explore, if you don't mind having a less beneficial forcing session. Alternate Activities These techniques are for supplementing the main activity in case you literally can't "get images". Stick to the main technique as a rule, because it is the strongest. An estimated 1 in 3 adults have extreme difficulty getting pictures in their mind but these techniques should loosen even the most stubborn of imaginations. 1. Describe after images. Find a picture of your tulpa, a beautiful place, or even a light, or you can use your own bedroom. Close your eyes and focus on describing them in as rich detail as possible, even after they begin to fade. Continue describing the after images even after they begin to change color and shape. 2. Find creative ways to get your mind to render images. Imagine closed doors, trains, streaming from memory, walk around blindfolded, turn lights on and off, use stobe lights, books (to either get it started or as a technique), explore your wonderland, elevators, these are all good examples. 3. Use your other sense. Listen to music, eat blindfolded, air sculpting. Your other senses may even be imposed if you are able to transfer the same technique to them, especially smell, taste, and touch. In order to use this technique on your hearing, you may have to listen for music while describing it without sub-vocalization (so just the thought intent). It is insisted that after 3 days of training the sense of taste in wine tasting likewise, one can go from an average joe to master connoisseur sensitivity. 10 days of 10 minute practice is supposed to be enough to start seeing serious results in mental power. This is only a side perk though of having an awesome imagination. If you want to see serious results though, don't worry about how long or how often, but set a specific time every day for forcing. Tulpa veterans continuously stress this idea for a reason. for more reading, visit old guide
  9. Hello, I've been interested in tulpas for some time now, deciding to make one exactly a week ago. I'll spare all the boring details and get to it: I absolutely cannot visualize at all. During the day I imagine her with me all the time as much as I pretty much can manage, and have sat down for at least a minimum of 2 hours each day attempting to visualize. I've done lots of reading on visualizing, and I feel have a very good grasp on the concept. At the start of almost every session I will meditate at a minimum of 30 minutes, sometimes longer. But when I sit/lay down to visualize her, I draw an absolute blank. Not even a single outline or blurry mess of anything will appear, just pure visual snow. The thing is though, I read in free time and do some daydreaming at work and I sort of get very weak visuals that go along with them. I've tried the "use as many senses and decribe what you're trying to visualize" to no avail. I really want to start getting at this, it's a really neat thing so far
  10. The bulk of the guide has been written to help people who are struggling with visualization because they can't focus or concentrate for long periods of time. As such, it may be helpful for people with ADD or similar. This guide assumes that you know what visualization is, and that you're at least able to do it. Begin by visualizing a canvas in your mind. The canvas can be any colour, but use white if you don't have a preference. On the canvas, visualize the number 0 in a strong, contrasting colour. For example, if the canvas is white, the number should be something like navy blue or black. Allow yourself time to relax and become aware of your breathing. Take a minute or so to let your breathing slow to a comfortable level. This will help you stay focused for the final step. The canvas says 0. Breathe in ... ... And out. Turn the canvas over to the next page. Visualize a number 1 on it. The canvas says 1. Breathe in ... ... And out. Turn the canvas over to the next page. Visualize a number 2 on it. The canvas says 2. Breathe in ... ... And out. Keep going, all the way to 100. That's right - without getting distracted! If you lose track of where you are, skip a number, or even take two breaths between numbers, reset to 0 and start again. You might not reach 100 on your first, second, or even third try, bur don't worry. Each attempt will improve your focus skills a little bit more, and if you keep at it, you'll eventually reach 100. Practice makes perfect! This process can be adapted to improve your tulpa visualization (and communication!). Ask your tulpa to write the number 0 on the canvas. How they write it doesn't matter, as long as you visualize them doing so. The canvas says 0. Breathe in ... ... And out. Ask your tulpa to turn the canvas over to the next page and write the number 1 on it. The canvas says 1. Breathe in ... ... And out. The exercises are written in a way which makes them easy to turn into audio scripts. You can do this yourself if you have a microphone, simply by reading each instruction aloud, from 0 to 100. Remember to have fun while you're doing these exercises. Please don't hesitate to share your experiences or give feedback, and I hope you get something useful from this guide.

  11. This guide is intended for people who are having trouble with visualization in general or specifically visualizing their tulpa, or who simply want to practice/improve their visualization skills. ---------- This guide is an adaptation of my Visualization Focus Guide. If you find it hard to focus, I recommend you complete the exercise in that guide at least once before attempting the exercise in this guide. This guide is intended to help people who have trouble visualizing their tulpa, or who have trouble visualizing anything. A tulpa who is able to move/control their mindform is required. Begin by visualizing a canvas in your mind. The canvas can be any colour but if you really can't decide, use white. At this point, your tulpa should use some sort of pen to draw the number 0 on the current page of the canvas. The pen can be any colour but you should be able to see it on the canvas's colour (so don't pick white if the canvas is white). Next, relax your body and mind slightly and become aware of your breathing. Take a minute or so to get to a level where you feel sufficiently relaxed. This will help you stay focused while doing the exercise. Now, ask your tulpa to turn to the next page on the canvas, then write the number 1. You should try and focus on them in your visualization and watch their movements as they turn the page (or magic the canvas blank if they so desire). Then ask them to move on to the next number. Continue this all the way to the number 100 without getting distracted! If you lose focus, your tulpa should throw the canvas away and get a new one. To throw in a twist, your tulpa is also allowed to make you start again if they think you took too long to ask them for the next number, or if you didn't try to visualize them during a number! You might not be able to reach 100 on the first try, but don't worry. Each time you try this, you'll improve your visualization skills more and more and as a bonus, communication between you and your tulpa will also improve! If you keep practicing, you'll be able to reach 100 before long. Practice makes perfect! Ideally, you should do this exercise at least once a day if you want to improve your visualization skills more than a little. As you do it, remember to have fun and feel free to chat with your tulpa during it (and for the tulpa: feel free to chat to your host if you want to give them more to focus on!).
  12. I don't know whether something similar to this has been posted here already or not (I used the search function but nothing specific came up), but I started working on this after reading an article on tulpas and hinduism, and it seems to be helping. I don't believe in anything metaphysical myself, so the rest of the article is of no interest to me, but this section seems to be describing a midway step between visualization and imposition, and it might be helpful. TL;DR Open-eyed visualization without trying to impose your tulpa. You visualize the entire scene, including your wonderland, exactly as you would with your eyes closed, but without visually imposing your tulpa yet. (Using a or something similar might help. Soundscapes, essential oils, or whatever you use to involve your other senses are welcomed at first as well.) The idea is to use this exercise to train yourself to ignore distractions. Plus, it's really difficult to focus on all five senses with your eyes open, so it might help with imposition upon the other senses as well. Bonus: I've also been using the (without music though) to work on feeling my tulpa's presence around me. Among the other things, this makes me feel better when I realize that I haven't been forcing much due to all the time I've wasted on the internet, but I digress. I just do really short sessions of five-ten minutes, possibly multiple times during the day, where I keep my eyes focused on the candle and try to sense my tulpa moving around the room. It can lead to chatting in mindvoice (they might be curious about what you're doing and how they can help), which is good. Just try not to get distracted by what you see around you and you should be doing fine. (If you do get distracted however, just go back to the candle. It's no big deal. You'll get better.)
  13. I've been working with Buddy and Betty for a while now, but I feel sort of drained. I know they exist and that they think for themselves, but I can't hear or see them yet. I can only hear their thoughts. There were one or two times when I thought I might have seen them, but it could have just been a shadow or a trick of some light in the corner of my eye. I'm leaving this thread because I want to ask people, who have successfully imposed their tulpas, how you brought it out and how long it took to do it. Please, don't say how difficult it can be because I've heard it too many times before and I'm well aware. I just want to know what your practice was or what caused imposition to take effect.
  14. I need some images of her STANDING, not doing some crazy hullabaloos from front, back side, and front-side.
  15. I've been working on visualization +mostly reading/audio book at work and I get some visuals, but they're not too strong. But when I lay down and get into a kind of forcing state, I can't seem to bring anything at all up. I've tried narrating a wonder land, but to zero success
  16. So, I've discussed this issue with a few users and mentioned the topic in a few threads already and it was suggested that I make a thread about this. Basically, I'm giving an overview of a visualization method that's worked for Avalanche and me, and also looking for thoughts on the topic. Forcing anatomy isn't exactly a traditional method so far (what is traditional with tulpae though?) and it seems to be something not many have mentioned having done. There are some benefits to it, however, both from practical standpoints and just as visualization techniques. The good news is, it's not really any harder than forcing anything else during visualization and preparation time is minimal. You really only need a high schooler's/first year college student's understanding of the human body, which nearly all of us already have. You should also review some charts for a visual refresher. Looking at scientific charts can be boring, of course, so here's a picture of two x-ray'd women fighting for some reason: [broken image removed] You enjoy that. Anyway, I don't want to bog down this post with a bunch of images so here are a couple links to some more scientific references: Bone structure. All the gross stuff. So now that we got that of the way, why should we force anatomy into our tulpae? Well, there are some benefits to it, both to the tulpa's development and for your benefit as well. For the most profound one, I'm going to quote Avalanche: "When I put the brain in there was a very dramatic effect...When I put my hands on her head and imagined a brain inside, she went from puppet stiff and lifeless to being all limp and unconscious, but there was like there was life in her." So that's obviously something we all want--a jumpstart to our tulpa's mental development, and it's easily accomplished with just a single visualization exercise that ties the personality you developed to the body you're forming. There are more benefits though, one being to the process of visualization. From my own experience, I was having a trouble with sliding proportions in the first day of visualization. That is to say--and many seem to express this problem--I'd focus on one part of my tulpa, and then things would get weird when I stopped paying attention and moved on. It wasn't just something that could be attributed to deviation either. Her arms would suddenly be different lengths, her legs would be too long. She wasn't looking like a person and it was starting to freak me out a little, so I forced a skeleton inside her and that seemed to fix it right away. There's a more subtle benefit too that I've noted in my own experience. Those of you who have a background in game design, robotics, psychology, or who just read a lot of things on the Internet (that sounds like all of us I'm guessing) will be familiar with the uncanny valley--the idea that when something looks really close to human, but isn't, it freaks us out. There are a lot of subtle biological processes that set humans apart from robots or mannequins or other human-like things that freak us out. Our respiratory, digestive, and circulatory processes all cause us to shift our weight around when we stand or sit, breathe (obviously), move our muscles subtly when we're in a relaxed state--without those things, we look like Stepford Wives and it's kind of creepy, and you don't want to be creeped out by your tulpa, right? So, TL;DR, study some anatomy, and force it into your tulpa.
  17. I have read through a few blogs today and talked to a few of the users on the IRC channel to find out a common problem is that some are just not able to render their entire tulpa. They are only able to render a portion of the body, face, torso or legs. i learned a exercise during art school that helped us render entire images in our heads without forgetting bits, distorting portions or mixing things up.[/img] Take a look at this picture above and pay close attention to the lamp pole that has the cross walk signs on it. I want you to study this pole as best as you can. Try and study the stain right below the Hand stop sign. The bolts and everything about it. Now take about 10 minutes and think about this pole with your eyes closed. Only this pole. Try and cutoff other all other information from your brain such as how your day was or any other distraction. Its ok if you talk to yourself about the pole, I did this. "This pole is tall and dark. I see the red hand and the blackness next to it". As long as your focus remains on this single object. You will need to focus on this pole for an average of 10 minutes about five times. Be sure to examine the photo in between exercises. This process should Last you a day or two. You can attempt to do this first step all in an hour or half a day. This will not work. I don't know why, it just doesnt. now that you have completed the first step of memorizing the pole with the red hand sign start to examine the sidewalk. Only the sidewalk, ignore the trees, garbage bin and all other objects on this sidewalk. If it helps you go ahead and imagine a flat concrete area where the building should be. focus on the edge front of the sidewalk and study this in as much detail as you have the pole. This process will take much much longer than the first step. Now close your eyes and do the same that you did with the pole but try and render the sidewalk as well. Keep both objects in as much detail as you can. You will have trouble focusing on tiny details such as where the paint has eroded on the sidewalk or the bolts on the pole. Focus on what you can and Render what you can. This will take much more than five or ten minutes. Spend at least fifteen to twenty minute each exercise. This time instead of doing it X many times you must do this until you can fully render the sidewalk and pole. This step may take three days to an entire week. Do not give up! Learning this can be far more useful than just visualizing your tulpa! Now rinse and repeat this step through the entire photo adding more and more objects each time. You can take your time by adding one object each session or you can add several objects during each session. The end result should you being able to Render that entire photo in your mind with ease. This first photo may of taken you up to two to three months to render. That is ok. Now I want you to find a new photo and do the same thing. It should be exponentially easier than the first. Your mind is already starting to examine and visualize multiple things at once. Not only are you able to render things better in your mind but your visual memorization has increased exponentially. i rushed this a bit and I will rewrite some bits of this later.
  18. Hello Tulpa community I am new in the forum and my englisch is not very god. I am from germany and hope this is not a problem. I have a Tulpa for 3 months and cant talk with each other. now i wanted to visualize my Tulpa but i cant see anything whit my minds eye. I have no Idea how i see whit my minds eye. i have read some guides but no from them helped me by me problem. Do i somthing wrong or do i not understanding something. I hope someone can help me and sorry for my bad englisch. here the text in german if someone understand it. ---------------------------------------------------------------------- Hallo Tulpa Community Ich bin neue hier im Forum und mein Englisch ist nicht so gut. Ich komme aus Deutschland und hoffe das ist kein problem. Ich habe meine Tulpa schon 3 Monate aber wir können uns noch nicht miteinader verständigen. Ich wollte meine Tulpa visualisieren aber ich kann nichts sehen mit meinen minds eye. Ich habe keine ahnung wie ich etwas sehen soll. Ich habe mir schon ein paar guides angeguckt aber keiner konnte mir bei meinem problem helfen. Mache ich etwas falsch oder verstehe ich irgendwas nicht. Ich hoffe jemand kann mir helfen und es tut mir leid wegen meinem schlechten Englisch.
  19. This is a technique that I found helpful, and I think it'd help people whether they're good or not at visualization. Visualization can easily get really vivid for me, and this should be a good way for building up details. This should also work for lucid dreams. This involves your dreamworld, so just basically imagine yourself doing stuff in an imaginary place to start off with. Imagine a huge computer/television screen in your dreamworld, possibly like a huge magical wall stretching off infinitely wide, or whatever comes most naturally. Imagine your Tulpa being drawn on the screen. This is normally easier than imagining them in "thin air", because it's more logical to see them in a "picture". Start with the most basic, low-quality picture you can think of, and gradually increase the quality by reading/thinking details "into" your tulpa, like refining a drawing or loading a video/JPEG, except knowing that you're downloading it from your dreamworld. This step is useful because it can start from practically 0 detail, and it can show visualization progress. Gradually imagine them like a digital model in a 3D program, rotating either them or the "camera" of the screen. Imagine lighting, the way light wind would sway their hair/clothes, and their weight on the ground. Imagine them just being there, giving them a (pleasant) interesting environment. Gradually imagine yourself importing sentience/AI into your tulpa in the "program", by imagining how they interact with their world, by imagining if they look back at you through the "screen", and imagining their response. If needed, have your information written in a list and read it "into" them like a programmer. Gradually increase the number of interactions they have with the world, situations and stuff they interact with. Throw in a pillow or something. Focus on making it feel like an interactive Youtube video, gradually increasing quality. Focus on all the steps above, then eventually reach your arms and hands into the screen in your mind. It can be invisible or visible, but it needs to be "your" hands. If your tulpa lets you touch them, do so, feeling them from top to bottom, every part that isn't awkward/distracting to touch. They should be reacting to your touch. Then, ask them to touch your arms and hands. Feel their hands on your skin, how they react to your touch. This type of interaction is actually very useful, since it convinces your mind that there's actual touch, actual events going on. Try things like poking their nose, etc. Once you get good with this, let the screen fade away, to where your whole body is a (possibly invisible) digital avatar in the same dreamworld level your tulpa is in. Interact with things the same ways your tulpa would, such as actually bending down to pick things up, in the presence of your tulpa. This will immerse you into the mindset that your tulpa is in, giving your mind information on how your tulpa thinks, since your tulpa will have to "imitate" your real world's physics when being imposed into it. Then start putting them into reality that same way, since your mind will have learned how to "impose", and use real life situations instead of fictional ones. Hope this helps. TLDR: Imagine a computer, imagine them into the screen, and start from there. Then start imagining them into reality the same way.
  20. This is for those who are having some trouble visualizing their forms. Two ways to do this. It requires a stretch of sunny weather with fairly clear skies. When your outside and your tulpa form is humanoid focus on the head of your shadow watching it intently impose the features of the tulpa on the shadow form. This is can done with a large drawing as well cut it out stand it up focus on it impose features. When you can see.... and I do not mean imagine I mean see features forming on the shadow raise your eyes to a patch of blue sky away from the sun so you don't hurt your eyes and try to impose the image against the sky. Takes about 2 weeks of practice if you focus. ... maybe sooner if your already able to visualize detail in your head easily and for a length of time without breaking. Same can be done with moon shadow if you live where the air is clear in winter and snow cover is good for that. This came from a yoga version same idea as tulpa making just a way of doing meditation that gives some variety. I'll throw a couple up. I think it's in the Tantras by Woodriff but I'm not sure off the top of my head. Since I'm planting right now I dont' have a lot of time to look up the specific reference.
  21. So, another visualization guide, meant for those who have difficulties seeing anything at all with their mind's eye. It is quite simple and involves using actual physical objects. First, pick up an object. It can be a marble, a tennis ball, a Rubik's cube, your piggy bank or anything similar as long as it's relatively simple in shape and fits in your hands. Once you have found an appropriate object, start to examine it thoroughly, feel it's bumps, dips and texture, listen to the voices it makes, smell it's scent, see how it fits in your hand. Do this for as long as you need to in order to have a good feel of it. Once you're done with that, stretch out your arms forward in a way that you can see your object without looking down. Remember where that object and your arms are located in your vision, and close your eyes. Next, start imagining that objects, it's bumps, dips and other properties in the same place in your mind's eye, along with your hands alternatively. You should see something, the edges of the object, the color of the object or even a fully imagined, 3D object. Repeat this process a few times a day until you can see it clearly. When you have a solid feel for the object, next you should try and manipulate it. Roll it, twist it, squeeze it, anything you can do with your hands, whilst keeping your eyes closed and simply imagining how your manipulation affects the object. Opening your eyes occasionally to see how close you got to the real object looks like when you manipulated it physically with your hands. Once you feel like you have mastered this, the next step would be to do these exact same things, but not using as many senses this time. You could place it on a table and simply look at it, then visualize it in your minds eye again, moving and manipulating it. Keep this up, gradually moving to more complex shaped objects, until you are able to simply imagine all the objects you want within your minds eye without external input. This is meant as a guide to practice visualization, and it should help yoh visualize objects better. It worked for me, and I hope it works for you too. Any questions you have regarding this guide, feel free to contact me and ask. Good luck! -Niko TL;DR: Get as many senses as possible to visualizing objects, such as touch smell, hearing etc. Gradually work yourself to not needing senses for visualizing in your wonderland.
  22. I can sorta of communicate with Luna (my tulpa, non-vocal). I was looking around other sites and I heard bout someone needing help on a mental barrier. I put 2 and 2 together and figured that the barrier is what blocks a person from fully communicating with their tulpa (Some people). I need help on how to get rid of it. (If its anyway possible.)
  23. I don't know if this had been posted before, but I've been visualizing alot lately but I still can't see Pinkie Pie. Am I doing something wrong? I stare into space and close my eyes, visualizing, but I still don't have a sign of anything working. please help
  24. I have been opening up to the idea of attempting to bring a tulpa into my life. Now, I don't find visualization a problem I have always been rather adept in that department but, I find myself somewhat bewildered with even trying to begin with the visual formation of a pony tulpa. Not in a sense of anatomy but, in how to actually depict it. I suppose what I really want to know from those of you with pony tulpae is do you see something along the lines of a 3d model of a pony or an actual little pastel horse? The more I think about it the latter seems rather unlikely but, I am still curious.
