I find it hard to concentrate/asking 'new' questions

1) I am having trouble concentrating on on thing at a time. Do any of you have any tips to alleviate this hassle? I do have ADD or ADHD (Doctor still doesn't know which) and I believe that this is a major contributing factor to this lack of focus. 

2) I am also having trouble coming up with new things to talk about with Heaven. She likes a couple of same things that I like, but I do not want to bore her with details of the nights gameplay, for example. Could I try playing the creative videogames out there with her to pose questions?

3) If I were to write a story with the main character based off Heaven, would it complicate our friendship? Would she still remain a tulpa, since her likeness would now be in a 'physical' book?

Heaven will be speaking when the brackets surround the speech like {this}.

RE: I find it hard to concentrate/asking 'new' questions

2) This question has been asked countless times. Simply browse the Internet, your mind, what's on TV, or go do something. It's not as difficult as you believe it is. Simply going outside usually helps my host to talk to us more.

3) That's probably a question you'd have to ask her. Ask her if she wants to be in your story or not. She would still remain a tulpa.

Honestly I think you should generally shy away from putting your tulpa in a story, but that's just my own biases talking.

Because of the focus issues, you need to step up and try to work around them. If you're getting distracted or you notice that you're thinking about something that's not your tulpa, take a breather, refocus, and get back to whatever it was you were doing with them. Rinse and repeat. Because of how often this question has been asked, it's probably going to be better for you to search for some older threads.

Literally anything. It doesn't matter how unimportant or boring your thoughts are as long as they're directed towards your tulpa. In the long run, most tulpas seem to appreciate that their hosts talked to them at all, even if they weren't particularly interested in the topic. You can make questions out of anything. If you think that those videogames will help you with it, go for it.

Would it? If you're able to communicate with your tulpa, you should ask them about this kind of thing to see if they're comfortable with it; if they're not, there's nothing to worry about. A lot of simple questions can be answered by talking to your tulpa, assuming that they're able to respond. This isn't the kind of question that people on the forums will be able to answer. There's nothing wrong with basing a character off of your tulpa, though - plenty of people have done this before and, from what I can tell, nothing bad has come from it. You're not giving up their likeness or anything by writing it down. That just sounds silly.

RE: I find it hard to concentrate/asking 'new' questions

my two cents.

1) you may have to wait for medication. without mine my attention goes down the drain. but at the same time. there's meditation, scheduling and reminding yourself to stay put without getting mad at yourself of course.

2) just show her things. talk to her, narrate your life to her if it suits you. my tulpas love the attention and the chance to experience what ever i'll share with them. they are a growing consciousness they need to be fed with attention and input of any kind.

for example, in the hub of my wonderland. there's a screen that always plays what i see. and there's a representation of me on a table where they can connect to my senses. and i can tell you they are always popping in and out. just coming to watch for a minute, or see what something feels like. and they are able to communicate quite well after they learned they could ask for things. the videos on my screen, the feel of a desk. any of the senses.

and if you find this style of sensory interaction difficult, you can alway think of her as you do anything. feel something for her as you think of her. think of her as you listen to music, think of her as you watch a move. share the taste of food with her this way. share anything with her. as long as you think of her, you can do whatever you want with her. but keep her in mind when you're doing it. and if you can feel her with you as you do something, that is also keeping her in your mind.

3)writing her into a story, after she's already sentient requires her permission. now if you start her in a story before she's sentient, you can easily turn this into a form of forcing. one i think is actually a really powerful method. but i would have to add the following. i would say you stop writing the moment you see she's sentient. a good way to do that would be to ask her to surprise you. works every time. and it's also a fun little game.

if you don't stop, she could get very defensive. and you have to explain to her, that her history from the story is not the reality you both live in. then let her crunch the memories and such. and many times they come to terms with it. only after they've come to accept their situation, should you go to ask them if they want you to continue writing with them. but always allow them to correct you regarding her character. she may want to play her character.

Sophie: i'll do most of the posting as we're still working on getting back up and running.
