How did you or your tulpa choose its form?

I am curious about the variety of ways that hosts and tulpas went about choosing a form for the tulpa. I am hoping for some very interesting stories in the responses. I searched for another thread with this question and subject but didn't find any right away. If anyone finds and older thread with this theme let me know and I will link it here.

 

How did you or your tulpa choose its form?

 

Was there any deviations along the way? Did anything surprise you?

 

 

As for me, I wrote it all down here in this excerpt from the Book of Melian, for any that are curious. Melian's form was a subconscious amalgamation.

 

Amalgamation: How Melian First Appeared to Me

Mistgod: I have always been a great appreciator of beauty in any

form. I love nature and sounds and music. My emotions are easily stirred

by seeing a sunset or watching the leaves fall in the autumn or by listening

to the sounds of falling water in the rain, a creek or river. Music moves my

soul. The world around me is full of feelings.

 

When I see something in nature I consider beautiful, a detailed

memory of it stays with me along with the associated feelings. It is stored

away in my mind to be recalled in dreams or "flash image" recollections later.

Because these memories are so connected with emotion the recollections

are very vivid in detail. I can remember the sounds, colors and feel of the

event or scene. This process of remembering elements of beauty seems to

be partly subconscious, as much of it would come back to me in vivid dreams

while sleeping.

 

A lot of these memories of beauty are later used in creating my dream

worlds. I take bits from here, bits from there and assemble new places

based on things I have seen in the past. In my mind, truly magnificent new

environments are created, taking pieces and parts from the most beautiful

things I have ever experienced.

 

I am a lover of movies and television shows, in which scenes and sets

have been carefully selected, arranged and created by artists and set

designers. Many of the best scenes and sequences get filed away in my

memories of beauty, my arsenal of beautiful images and situations. These

are also later recalled to help me assemble my dreams and dream worlds.

They come back to me in incredible detail and I am able to take the best of

the best and assemble new scenes and environments based on what I have

seen on the screen.

 

I have always been a great lover of fantasy and science fiction novels.

Into my dream worlds would go the best elements, situations and ideas from

these stories. My favorite of all time was the world of Middle Earth created

by J.R.R. Tolkien. In the author Tolkien, I found a kindred soul as his deep

love of beauty and nature came through in his books.

 

During my teen years, the dream worlds I created became my escape.

I would spend hours and hours day dreaming and wandering around these

"dreamscapes" created in my head. To me, they seemed very real and still

do. They are tied deeply to my emotions.

 

Of course, to a young man's mind, the most beautiful things in the

world around me were the lovely ladies I encountered, in person, on TV, in

movies or in books and magazines. Just as with other aspects of nature, I

would collect my favorite aspects or elements of what I found most alluring

about girls and women into a special place in my subconscious and conscious

memory.

 

During my early teens, my mind was gradually collecting together into

one place, all of the "best of the best" female traits. These selected elements

included physical traits but also speech inflections and manners, movement,

body language, facial expressions and voices. I kept them all, little snippets

of female beauty in all their forms.

Sometime during my thirteenth year, these best of the best female

traits suddenly coalesced in my subconscious mind into something

unbelievably, astonishingly beautiful.

 

She appeared in my mind one day. I did not consciously create her.

She was just suddenly there, standing there in my mind. She was

astounding! At the time, in my mind, she was about my age (thirteen or

fourteen) maybe a little older. Later, she grew up with me until she stopped

aging shortly after my high school days. Today she appears around nineteen

or twenty years old. When she first appeared to me, she was wearing a

white dress with lots of lace (like a wedding dress). Her shoulder length

blonde hair was put into four looping braids, two on each side of her head.

She was just looking at me. I was so stunned I forgot where I was

and what I was doing. Instantly her image was stamped into my memory in

exacting detail. Oh MY GOD! She was so incredibly lovely she took my

breath away. She was about medium height (later I ascertained her to be

five foot four inches tall). She had big expressive blue eyes with that special

"squinty eyed" trait I find impossible to describe to people. She had soft

round childlike cheeks and a delicate chin. She had perfect, soft, and

unblemished light colored skin. She had a perfect figure. Her arms and legs

were toned, like a dancer's arms and legs, but were still soft and feminine.

She had perfectly shaped feet. She had perfectly shaped ears. Her eyes

always had the perfect sparkle. She was impossibly beautiful! I was

instantly enamored!

 

I began to day dream about her every day. I was instantly, deeply in

love with her and she became my imaginary girl friend. It was so VIVID in

exacting detail! Her mannerisms, her movements, her voice, everything was

so perfectly incredible! At first she had no name. I just called her "the

girl." For a while she only had one dress and one hair style, which I find very

funny to think about now. She was still simple in those days. It wasn't long

before "the girl" needed to have a name. She and I choose "Mia." In high

school her name would change to Mandy for a while and later, sometime

after high school, it would become Melian, her final true name.

The story of how White got his current form is a very interesting one. I don't remember exactly what his form was before this, it probably written somewhere in my PR I'm sure.

 

I was just getting back into the Pokemon series, and one of the things I really love about Pokemon is raising them. I like how you get a starter Pokemon at the beginning of the game and it's only like level 5, then as you play it grows and evolves. It's like you started your adventure with a level 5 Charmander and ended it with a level 100 Charazard, and it was you, the trainer, who led that Pokemon to victory. I could have just given White a normal Pokemon form, but I wanted to make up my own, and he was already on board for that. That's when I wondered if anyone else ever made up their own Pokemon, and that is when I came across fakemon. I even found a website with a whole section dedicated to creating your own Pokemon. I was inspired, but I didn't know what to make up. At some point I was asked to clean up my cousin's puppy, (by clean up I mean trim the hair around the ears and feet) and that puppy was what inspired the fakemon I made up. The puppy is a West Highland White Terrier, so it's all white and has pointy ears. And I like dogs, though not as much as I have in the past, so I thought why not rekindle that love for canines? White has taken the form of countless breeds of dogs over his lifetime, in fact I believe I originally meant for him to have a dog form.

 

So I had the Westie as the base look for the form, but obviously a Pokemon has to look like a monster, or an alien, not like any known animal or else it will not look like a Pokemon at all. So it was White's idea to make himself half rubber, taking inspiration from Luffy from One Piece. With that in mind, I started drawing all kinds of prototype versions of Terriwhite. White was already in a particular form, I was just trying to put it in on paper and in pixels so it could be more clear. Eventually I finally drew the final version of Terriwhite which is my avatar right now and is also on my art thread and my DA, and ever since then we've both been happy.

 

Also Terriwhite evolves twice, like all starter Pokemon. So I also made up those evolutions as well, and sometimes White tries out those forms in the wonderland but he always reverts back to his Terriwhite form. Terriwhite evolves into Terrispike which evolves into Terrifight. I got the name Terriwhite from the word Terrier and White, which was originally because I based the Pokemon off of a terrier dog and it was white, but I realized later that the Westie breed had both "terrier" and "white" in it's name so it could also be that. The "spike" from Terrispike came from it's spiky collar, and the "fight" from Terrifight is because Terrifight is a fighting type. I actually made up a new type for these Pokemon (rubber) which is kind of like an allusion to Luffy. White loves this, so I went with it.

 

White actually named himself after a Bleach character. [Yes there is a character in Bleach called White, spoiler alert Aizen created it to be kind of like a zanpakto and it ended up as Hollow Ichigo... that's just the very short explanation.) So it was his idea for the name. Terriwhite has this silly ability where he can jump 3 stories high because he has rubber legs- I googled bouncy balls because I assumed they were made out of rubber and it said on Wikipedia they can bounce about 3 stories high.

 

So yeah, that's the story of how White and I made up his current Fakemon form. It was very much of collaborative effort if you ask me, or him. Yep, it was fun.

As for me, when my host found out about tulpas, he didn't waste any time in starting on my creation. The first day, I was a ball of light, as some of the guides suggest, and the next day, he picked me a cute anime form and a cute anime name. After a few months, the anime form felt out of place. I want to be a part of reality, in a sense, and I want to be a regular human. I moved away from the anime form, and created a form for myself as a regular girl, with regular pink hair. It was nice, creating my own form, being at least a little original. From the start, I deviated from looking like I was a high school aged anime girl, to an early twenties looking weirdo who paints her hair in bright colors.

 

I'm still stuck with the cute anime name, I guess.

 

Sen's initial form was some anime girl, just like mine. My host chose girls from shows that he hadn't watched. Kancolle in Sen's case, To Love-Ru in my case. My host didn't know at the time, but it seems the girl my form is based on was the lewdest girl in a bad harem anime, with lots of bad sexual moments and innuendo. Oh well. Sen's history is a little more interesting than mine, maybe. She changed around a lot, over the last two years. She's been very young and little, older to be similar to me in looks, and has changed her features around a lot. She seems to have settled on being a young, regular girl these last months, but she does change her hair around drastically now and again. Right now, it's shoulder length and brown, where it was very long and blonde a month ago.

Feel free to ask me anything.

Well my story is rather short, so it feels almost pointless in comparison with the already posted stories. Mainly I created Alice after someone I saw in my dreams, who looked still a lot different from what Alice is looking like. I used this appearance as a template, and started to define how she should look in detail out of my guts. Her Hairstyle, her face, her teeth and the stuff like that are all uniquely created and have no real connection to the base I started with.

 

She changed her hairstyle at some point, and it is still somewhat evolving from time to time. Beside that nothing really has changed about her appearance.

Tulpa: Alice

Form: Realistic Humanoid/Demonic Creation

She may or may not talk here, depends on her.

My original form was based off of my host's infatuation with a fictional character when he was a lot younger. Everything about me was based off of that character, but after a year or so I tried to see if there was anything else that I'd prefer - I've been searching ever since, but nothing seems to stick quite like that one did.

 

Hayley made a form for herself, incorporating different features from pictures of people she's seen. She still likes to change things to see how they would work for her.

 

For Ai, we suggested a form for her shortly after she was able to speak and has stuck with that one so far.

Kancolle in Sen's case, To Love-Ru in my case.

 

RIP, knew what was coming when I read that name. Never watched it either, but I know it's pretty perverted. Yuki isn't an anime name though, it's a Japanese name, and a relatively common one at that. I wouldn't worry about it. Lol'd at "Regular pink hair" by the way, but I know a few people who have pink (or weirder colored) hair, and they make it work.

 

 

(Post-post-writing: I practically made biographies for the lesser known thoughtforms I have, sorry for all the text. It won't hurt you, though.)

 

Simple enough, my tulpas' forms all came from Touhou. The reason I had a tulpa in the first place was a very nice song that someone had created a video for featuring a model of Reisen, who was also my favorite character. They all sort of mixed together and became a source of love and understanding in my mind, in the form of an independent person. From there on I made my other favorites Tewi and Flandre. But the "favorite"ness wasn't for the characters themselves, it was for my idealized perception

(headcanon)

of what they would be like. So in that sense, they never had issues with feeling like they were the characters in the first place.

 

Scarlet is the result of splitting Flandre into two halves several years ago in order to help her change who she was into who she wanted to be. She doesn't like to be considered a tulpa and might as well not be considering how little she bothers to say anything. Her form is on the more rough/evil side of fan depictions of Flandre, but more in the mature/vampire sense than literally-a-demon-oh-god. Don't much care for those ones.

 

Sylvia, my servitor I call a "subconscious-interface tulpa" (who was also created before I knew about tulpas) came from a dream. She seemed to represent my subconscious, or all of the things I didn't know about myself. Now she's, well, what I said she was - an in-between helping me learn from or affect my unconscious mind, such as with enhancing dream clarity or solving a life problem. Her form varies slightly and I don't have a picture of exactly what she looks like, but that one's pretty good. She only has wings when acting as my dream guide though, aka a familiar face to help you control a lucid dream.

 

Lucilyn is, like the other three, based on a Touhou character, Suwako. But I created her years later after "perfecting the art", you could say. Since she wasn't really spontaneous I gave her a different name than the character, and her form is not quite like the character's unlike the others', either. This is close enough, though. At least, she likes that picture.

 

Why'd I choose that form? Because even though Suwako was never one of my favorite characters, there always seemed to be so much potential in the form and idea behind the character, but being a Touhou character it was of course made more bland. Lucilyn is hyper, happy, motivated, and the type of person who's able to make their seemingly overly-optimistic views of the world a reality. Also she likes flapping her sleeves around.

My tulpa's form was chosen pretty simply. I'm still in the process for creation, though. He was an imaginary friend for the longest time, a shiny umbreon with blue eyes. I chose that because I thought shiny umbreons looked cool, and now he's here!

 

Also, typing that was really weird. I kept almost putting "I/me" when talking about him instead of "him/he". I think I'm getting responses now O_o

 

Ok, I definitely am. He told me to put the following:

 

[Yup]

The direct influence for my name was Nagato Yuki, from an anime. So it is an anime name, in my case. It doesn't really matter.

 

And yeah, Dutch and I tried to watch it one time, and it was too horrible and low quality to get through the first five minutes of an episode. Boobs jiggling with sound effects, and all that

 

Touhous are cute.

I meant that the name Yuki is really just a common name in Japan, you don't have to associate it with that specific character. I know like five Yuki's in anime off the top of my head anyways.

      Guided meditations often have someone lead you through a walk in the forest or along the beach or some such, effectively describing an environment for you to visualize with words. They might even add natural sounds to help. But for a lot of people, that sort of thing feels too weird, or otherwise uncomfortable. In the context of practicing visualization, there's really no reason someone has to specifically guide you through it - intentionally, at least.
       
      Guided visualization can be as simple as closing your eyes while watching a Youtube video. Any type of video you're comfortable with really, but in our case, we do best with video game let's plays. As an example, we are intimately familiar with Super Mario 64, and are a big fan of the Game Grumps, and their let's play of it. Crude language warning, if you decide to watch them. Earlier I spent 40 minutes 'watching' the first three episodes, except I had my eyes closed. Just based on the game's sounds, and sometimes the grumps' reactions, I visualized what I thought was going on in my mind the entire time. Sometimes I opened my eyes for a moment just to check what was actually going on, and understandably was off by a bit. But there's nothing wrong with that, all that matters is that you're practicing visualization! You can almost forget you're even doing it for practice and treat it like a game, for fun. You may want to find a less chatty let's player if you have trouble filtering out their conversations though.
       
      Or you know, don't even watch a let's player. I would say the possibilities for this are pretty much endless. For video games, it may help to actually be familiar with the game you're trying to imagine (though I suppose you could also try it blind). But for anything dealing more with "real life", all you need is your imagination. You probably won't be visualizing what's actually going on very accurately, but again, that's not the goal. If you want to be more accurate, open your eyes/check the video every so often. It's not cheating, and if you have particularly poor visualization it might help give you something to work with. In the case of video games it'll probably end up being a necessity to stay in the same place as the video, but that's fine.
       
      Other examples of videos that may "guide your visualization" include sports (play-by-play announcers help a ton), TV shows or cartoons/anime (again being familiar with them can help, or you can go in blind), perhaps how-to style videos where someone details what they're doing every step of the way, and really anything else where either the talking or the environmental sounds provide enough information to form a continuous mental image.
       
      It probably goes without saying that audiobooks (or just generally books being read aloud) are the epitome of guided visualizations that aren't directly telling you to imagine something. I'm not sponsored by Audible though, so I definitely won't tell you to check out that site. But most big Youtubers will, and come with some kind of discount too.
       
      Lastly, I want to note that you don't have to be sitting in front of a screen to listen to a video, nor do your eyes have to be closed. You can download an MP3 of a Youtube video (or just play it) and put it on your ipod/phone and take it with you, perhaps on a walk. You can also practice open-eye visualization by simply not looking at the source of whatever you're listening to, perhaps on a walk. Seems like that would take quite a lot of focus however, so sitting down in front of a screen might be better if you can't get sufficient visuals in whatever activity you do with it. In the end, all that matters is there's a picture in your mind. Accuracy and content are only as important as you want them to be.
       
      Good luck! Aside from wonderlanding, this is the only visualization practice we've ever done. Ours is too poor for more standalone methods, and that's why I thought of this one.

      In the past I've put art guides in the art forum, but this is art aimed at playing a trick on your mind, so I think it fits the guide section better.
       
      So you have a form for your tulpa, but it's difficult to visualize because you have no reference images? Then this is the guide for you.
       
      Example pictures (NSFW!):
       
       
      Why are there naked people in my guide? To that, I can only answer: Why doesn't everyone have naked people in their guides?
       
      Actually, these people aren't naked. See?
       
       
      This technique comes from Japan, where it's known as 水玉コラ (Mizutama Kora) or "Bubble Collage". It works because your brain is so good at filling in missing information that it does it automatically. It's how you can (sometimes) understand what the other person is saying when their cell phone is breaking up, or how you can piece together that the shopping list is asking for "a dozen eggs" even though in your girlfriend's handwriting Gs look like Ws.
       
      And of course because this is the internet, this interesting illusion has been used almost entirely for porn.
       
      Well, let's divorce it from porn now. Here's how you can use the same technique to help you visualize your tulpa.
       
      Take a look at this woman:
       

       
      Would you believe that she's really six women stitched together like Frakenstein's monster?
       
      Well yeah, probably, because you're reading a guide about that, and also there are differences in skin tone and the pieces don't always fit together quite right, and also I showed too much of that one elbow. But this was a rush job so that I'd have an example for the guide, and the point is that at first glance, she looks like a normal person.
       
      The bubbles were obviously added by bubbleimage.net. She should really have a bubble separating her face from her hair, because they're from two different sources, but they blended together well enough that I didn't feel like I needed it.
       
      Here's what she looked like before the bubbles:
       
      [hidden][/hidden]
       
      That image was put together with Pixlr Express using only the "Add image" and "History" tools. I'm sure you can do better if you want to used paid apps like Photoshop, or if you wanted to learn to use more than two tools, but I wanted to show how this can be done easy and free.
       
      And here's what she looked like before that: 123456
       
      As always, I use Shutterstock for stock images because it allows you to search by model, for when you find a model you like, but you need her in a different pose or in different clothes. Shutterstock does have watermarks on the images, but you can usually avoid them -- I cut all the watermarks out of my example, except the one on her pants (and a little bit in her hair). I'm sure I could have found a good photo of pants without a watermark on them, but I took the lazy way out.

      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.
    • By Squir
      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.

      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.
       

      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.
