naomi's progress journal!
#1
u/18/18
this is where Naomi and I will be documenting her progress as a tulpa! she's about two days old right now. hopefully she'll be able to update this herself one day, but she's not that far along.

right now, she can:
respond to questions with physical communication (nodding, holding up fingers)
laugh/giggle
scroll on my phone with possession (albeit very slowly and with a bit of assistance when stuck)

she's very childlike, it's kind of adorable. we're going to work on possession and sentience today.

ill update this as often as i can! if you have any questions for me (or her), let me know.
quick update - we made some great progress with her sentience! we used the first counting game outlined in this post: https://community.tulpa.info/thread-sent...ting-games

we've tried this game before but she got the hang of it today which is very exciting. if you're having trouble with it, try teaching your tulpa how to count - that's what i had to do for naomi, and now she can count correctly 9/10 times!
another update for today (the last one)! we learned that Naomi can't spell, unfortunately. that's next on the list for teaching!

we've been practicing possession today as well and she moved my finger up and down, as well as side to side - although it was very weak and wobbly, i'm still SOOO proud of her and i let her know that.

so we've been practicing a whole lot today on possession and vocalizing. she is getting SO good at possession and moving my hand! she even drew a little portrait of herself, but my camera is screwed right now so i can't take a photo. i'll try later.

she's also getting better at typing, so i'm gonna let her type something:

Teddybear!:]

well ok then lol. i tried to get her to tell me what she was gonna write and she insisted it was a surprise! she tells me she has no idea why she wrote it lmao.

so today has been a day, lol.

first things first - naomi changed her hair this morning! she now has short ringlet curls, like Molly Oswald in sixteen candles. it looks super cute on her. she also has a slightly shorter and rounder face. i'm kinda glad she's shifting forms because to me it's a sign she's gaining independence.

that being said, we had a conversation this morning about her being more mature, and she got upset with me and hid away in her room for half the day. she's better now, but i still feel bad about making her so upset.

i had a friend over today and since they believe in tulpas, i showed them Naomi's counting. to my surprise, not only did Naomi not wait for my signal this time, she answered vocally! she's never been vocal without my prompt, so this is a huge step for her.

Welcome to the forums! Just don't teach her the ABC's, I promise you she already knows them.

Does Naomi count faster than you?

unfortunately im not so sure abt the abcs lol. i did a test with her a bit earlier and she admitted to not knowing how to spell, so that's probably next on the list.

as for the numbers, she can't right now; i usually give her about ten seconds to count when we do the counting game, but when I don't, it takes her a good five seconds to signal that she's ready to answer and she gets it wrong more often.

i am kind of slightly worried with where she's at developmentally - from what ive heard, she's starting off muuch lower than other tulpas. that being said, she's really eager to learn, and i don't think her lack of knowledge on those fronts is holding her back any other way!

You've both come so far in this little time. I think she'll learn everything crucial like spelling with the time. She maybe haven't learned to pick up knowledge from your brain yet? If you really want to teach her how to spell without boring her out, try reading. I don't think you have to worry about the spelling right now, she'll learn just in time. You could proxy for her now in the beginning.

No, she's doing great after two days! Even if she can nod or give any sign of understanding that's perfect! Just because you're not in a system that had desperate Tulpas just waiting to be discovered for years, doesn't mean there's anything wrong with her progress.

My host wishes he could start with nothing and see the whole process, in that regard he's completely out of luck, but don't be discouraged by that, everyone is unique.

For us, we have an atypical set of circumstances, but Hostie has been a writer for years. If you go through the hundreds of hours required to write novel (or 12), you're likely to have experiences with characters that 'come to life'. So that's the advantage of vocality and imagery we had a the start. (Thousands of hours of character building.)

If he started tulpamancy before he ever wrote his first novel, he'd be in the same boat as you.

Good luck and we hope to here more from you soon.

thank you so much!! that's really encouraging to hear. i'm relieved she's not stunted in any way; just a unique girl!

thanks! yeah, i have a couple ideas on how to get her to learn to read and spell and such. she really likes using Pinterest with me ( we practiced possession last night and the first thing she learned to really do was scroll on Pinterest lol ) so I might use that to our advantage and get her to find pins with a specific word or letter, something like that.

i guess it helps i'm already trying to become a preschool teacher haha!

Once she understands how to takeover certain parts of your brain, she'll know and do what you can do. Like anything I guess maybe it takes practice? B is a great artist, but Ashley tried it and... it was cute. <3
