Stanford Tulpa Study looking for more participants

My Tulpa isn't very autonomous
#1
She's sentient, vocal, and very much alive, but a few days ago she explained something odd to me.

Basically, when I'm not paying attention to her, she sort of just reads this book I gave her ages ago that lets her see what I'm thinking, and basically doesn't do anything else. According to her, it feels like she sort of just stops thinking when I'm not thinking about her, but she doesn't fall asleep or anything.

Since we figured out she was having problems doing stuff when I wasn't paying attention to her, I've tried to help her a bit and now she'll sometimes go to the other part of her room and watch the memory TV thingy we have in wonderland, but that's about it. She doesn't really think while she's switching between the two, just does it every now and then.

As I've said earlier, she's perfectly alive when I'm thinking of her even in the slightest, but if I'm completely distracted, this happens. I don't really know why she's so un-autonomous, but I'm hoping someone could help with this.

That's normal, and it's something that'll resolve itself with time as she becomes more independent. If you and her would like, though, you could give her tasks to do while you're not focusing on her to help her practice keeping active without requiring your attention.

Thanks a lot, I was really worried.

Funny thing though, my Tulpa actually though of something like that a few minutes ago.

I'd still like some more input on this, though.

We are still going through this as well, I think it's getting better little by little as time goes on. I think this is something that develops over time as the tulpa becomes more independent and less reliant on the host's trains of thought

Thunderfall is a year old now and this still happens. Both he and Melody have great trouble sustaining themselves when I'm not around to focus on them, but on occasion they are able to go about some activities without me in a very simple manner. My best advice is to be patient with the problem, try and give her things to be doing now and then when you aren't able to focus on her (taking a walk for example) and simply wait for her to improve her autonomy. As with all.things tulpa, it could improve quickly or it could take as long as Thunder if not longer. The key is to simply not be too discouraged.

River told me he wanted to create a garden, now when I ask him what he's been up to, he says he been gardening and gives me a bouquet of flowers. Usually a different kind everyday. Maybe asking your tulpa what they would like to do in their spare time would help.

In my wonderland there is this area where everything starts when I force. If you picture in your mind a painting of a Japanese cherry tree, complete with red wooden bridge, river full of koi and bright blue sky that's where I start every forcing session.

I just asked Toby what he does in his free time to kind of help better answer this question and he said:

"you know our cherry tree?"

"yeah."

"that's my cherry tree."

"so you take care of it?"

"I spend a lot of time there. I take care of the tree, the fish the river."

He says he watches over the skittle bug things that are in another part of our wonderland and he reads a lot. I'm pretty sure he sits under that tree to read.

He says to give her an arts and crafts room. He says make a room in your wonderland and fill it with books, clay, paints, chalk, crayons, dolls, wood and woodworking things just anything you can imagine and tell her you want her to play around with all these different things.

He says to make sure he knows that she doesn't necessarily have to make anything for the first few days but just have fun and experiment to find out what she likes.

He says that it could just be that she's young and doesn't really have a sense of what she enjoys for herself yet.

He says before he discovered the cherry tree he, and in quoting him.

"I followed you around. Litteraly all freaking day I just followed you or slept. It sucked. Really super sucked."

He also says that giving her a job like "I want you to decorate the wonderland while I'm not paying attention to you or Something like that might help.

Toby thinks that she's too strongly connected to you and needs to develope her individuality. He says if you can get her thinking or doing small things like this more often it might help her "find herself"
