[Visualization] Tip For Those Stuggling to Visualize
#1
Default 
I had a bit of trouble visualizing at first but after playing around with my method a bit I closed my eyes, and covered my eyes with my arm or any object that wouldn't suffocate me.
The instant I did this, it forced me to enter my "dream mode" and I could vividly see my tulpa's image.

Before I would try to enter a wonderland but I couldn't help but see my room while trying to create a blank space for my Tulpa.
Now the blank room is I guess my template for a future wonderland I plan to make (for now it is just a black emptiness with the platform my Tulpa is lying on).

I suggest this only if you are early on and struggling with seeing the tulpa like I was. If you want, just try it, cover your face with one arm and visualize your Tulpa. The arm blocks the minds natural impulse to imagine the room it is in I guess.

Sounds like all you did was attempted to completely block out light. I mean, I guess it's something to try if you're desperate...

I find a blindfold sometimes helps me avoid distraction, but that's about all.

Just shut off all light. That's just as easy.

I had the lights out anyways. It had nothing to do with the light, it was the fact that my face was covered. The difference was huge.

Again, the light was already out.
And yeah, I was desperate and this is a tip for those who are desperate.

I find that there's a difference between lack of stimulus and having something that blocks stimulus. A blindfold as opposed to a dark room, headphones or earplugs as opposed to silence, etc. These things can help, but I'd recommend you just use them as training wheels for meditation.

i've spent about 3 hours trying to visualise, and i can't really "see" anything. i have the concept of a foot, and of a shin, and of the calf, and the ankle, and the toes and the heel and the nails and the skin and the muscles and the bones- but i can't vividly see, well, anything. the only time i've ever had any kind of imagined visual i could actually see is when i'm doing a WILD, even before I hit sleep.

Is there something wrong with me?

Nothing wrong with you. I remember when I first started tulpaforcing, visualization was hard for me, and I'd barely see anything. And while my visualization skills aren't as vivid as dreams (I think a few members have hit that point), my visualizations can be fairly well "seen."

Practice makes perfect, especially if you're trying to build on things in your mind that you've never really done before (or in my case, haven't done in a long time), it takes a bit of practice to get the old imagination station up and running again.

This is definitely helpful. For a while I found that a blindfold over my face helped concentration immensely. I don't know why. Maybe I just like cloth on my face.
