There's no level or limit of "mental energy" to create a tulpa, if I'm understanding your question correctly. There aren't many requirements for this sort of thing - just be willing to put in the time and effort needed to make a tulpa, and if you have any questions, the people on these forums would be happy to help you.

 

As for your age, if you feel like you're mature enough to get into this, I don't think it'll be too much of a problem. Just make sure to take time research this a bit more. Read as many threads and learn as much as you can before starting, it might end up influencing your decision.

I understand that Tulpas and DID are very different things. I mentioned that as some information about myself and my friends.

 

I have talked with my friends about this, to get there opinions and what they would think of me during and after I create one (if I create one).

 

Okay. :-) I am sorry. I just wanted to make sure there was no confusion there with that.

 

I think you are old enough to start a tulpa if you are willing to dedicate enough time and commitment to it.

I'm willing to put as much time and energy into this as needed.

 

I kind of get what your saying about maturity, but can you describe what "level" of maturity your talking about?

I was just saying that you'd need to be mature enough to take this sort of thing seriously because of how greatly it'll affect your life.

My concerns when it comes to teenagers are twofold:

 

1. You are still developing cognitively

 

2. You are still developing self esteem and self identity

 

Some teenagers are not emotionally ready to have their mind occupied by another personality. That is a personal opinion based on the fact that I am a trained educator working with emotionally disturbed and at risk teens for the past 14 years, include teens with DID and schizophrenia.

 

Many teens are very mature and ready to handle tulpamancy. But my concern is if you are having any social anxiety, then you should wait until you feel clear about who you are, and where you are going. I mean "you" in a general term of course.

I really don't have any anxiety at all. Maybe a very small amount when I about to take a unit test or something, but otherwise I don't have any :).

Okay :-)

 

That being said, my Melian came to me when I was about 13 years old and developed through my teen years. I was definitely emotionally disturbed and had social anxiety. So... yeah. My older self would have been telling my younger self to wait. Then my younger self would have told my older self to go jump in a lake. So, there it is. LOL

I don't really think there's a maximum level to how much energy you need, as long as some portion of said energy goes into your tulpa. So there's no point just sitting back, doing nothing, and expecting it all to happen instantly - it can the days, weeks, months, or even years (and so on, and so on...). Just remember that your tulpa will be with you for the rest of your life (unless, you know, you decide to dissipate/kill them... Hopefully you won't take the value of their life too lightly, don't think you will, but hey...). I would say... Think on it some more, to make sure you're extra sure, and don't regret it afterwards

Hello, I'm kinda new to all this Tulpa stuff but I want to create one. I have thought about it for the last two days (but non-stop I can't get it out of my mind!) so I decided to create one. I have done a lot of research and I still am, but I wanted more information from people who have already done this, and maybe even their Tulpas as well.

 

Information about me: I'm fifteen years old and I'm in ninth grade. I have many excellent friends (about 15, and even more online ones). About 5 people in squad (what we call our friend group) have DID (DID is formally known as multiple personality disorder). {{{{{NOTE; I will add more information later, since I don't have a lot of time right now because I'm in study hall.}}}}}

 

I want a Tulpa because I want a friend, companion who will always be there to help me, tell me when I'm wrong and to make me feel better when I'm down.

 

I know that Tulpas AREN'T tools, and they also have feelings and have thoughts, ideas, and emotions of there own. I know I will also have to help and take care of the Tulpa.

 

My questions (for now):

 

How can I tell if I have enough mental energy to create and sustain myself and the Tulpa?

 

>5/15 friends have DID

No they don't. It's one of the rarest mental illnesses out there. Even then, multiplicity is only given the label DID if the person is, and I quote, "distressed by the disorder or have trouble functioning in one or more major life areas because of the disorder." Plus, they need total amnesia about the events while other identities are in place.

 

>tulpas aren't tools

Tulpas can be tools; hell just look at the original Buddhist ideas of what tulpas were for. Things like self-discovery the kind you would get with meditation and the like, improved memory recall, etc. are legitimate reasons to make a tulpa. If anything, you should say that tulpas aren't toys, which a lot of people treat them like. Pisses me off, but whaddaya gonna do?

 

>humblebragging about friends

>{{{{{NOTE}}}}}

Please don't do this.

 

Also, "tulpa" is not a proper noun, so there is no need to capitalize it.

 

>mental energy

This isn't a thing, at least not related to this. It's not like this is Dragon Ball or something where each of us has ki that gets exhausted when we use brain powers. The closest thing would be getting tired after studying for a while or something. Your brain won't get tired because a tulpa is living in it.

      French Version:
      dragonclaw has kindly taken much time to translate this entire guide into French. Currently, this version contains all sections that can be found in the original English version, but lacks the revisions done to other sections in the past.
       
      Italian Version:
      This version, translated by the user "dreamy" (you'll always be noobdreamer to me) should currently be up-to-date, besides the most recent English update.
       
      Russian Version:
      This version of the guide was recently translated by the user Leopold, of his own accord. Much thanks to him for the hard work.
       
       
      For all the non-English versions of the guide, note the date of creation in comparison to the latest update of the English version. I will not tell you every time one of the versions is not completely up to date. You can figure that out yourself. If it was not up-to-date when it was posted, I will let you know as I did the French version.
       
      For those of you who want to translate this guide:
      Don't.
      At least not yet. I should have made serious note of this earlier, but I intend to do some major revisions to this guide, such that any translation done now would be severely outdated by the time I'm finished.
      On top of that, there is also a possibility that this guide may be taken down altogether.
       
       
      As always, let me know what you think, and if there are any sections you'd like to see added.
       
      It's worth noting that I still plan to reword/revise some of the paragraphs. I feel like I didn't get my point across as eloquently as possible. But until then, make do with my rough-draft wording.

      A little while back I was tasked with writing a general overview to tulpae and creation.  The idea was to have an up-to-date general guide that didn't push things like hour counts on new users, talked about different methods, and other such things. 
       
      Took me about a good number of hours in front of a public computer, but I got a draft finished. 
       
      So, here it is.  The Word file I typed up originally, and a .txt for people who the Word file doesn't work for. 
       
      Input would be fantastic.  Constructive criticism is always welcome.

      Tulpa Phenomenon Overview Guide v1.docx
      Tulpa Phenomenon Overview Guide v1.txt
    • By madrezaan
      For those who understands Russian, there's a guide describing so called "gymnasium student" method of tulpa creation.
       
      Working link: here
       
      The main idea is to treat tulpa as your own student in gymnasium. Then to organize all stuff, she got to learn/practice, in 3 levels: grade, disciplines for each grade and topics for each discipline. The whole tulpa's training process is considering as a "game of school", with tests, exams and score system. It is necessary for the tulpa to pass a test in every topic, and to pass exam in every discipline to make a progress. Introduced score system takes a role of feedback, which allows you to put extra flexibility to estimated hours per each topic and discipline.
       
      Also, an attempt to completely rid off "slaveholder" terminology of "forcing", "host" etc. Instead of that, all process is describing in positive terms of "learning", "teacher" and so on.
       
      Full English translation is possibly to come in future.

      What do you think the ideal experience with tulpamancy is? As in, what all do you hope the tulpamancer gets from the experience? How do you hope their life changes? 
       
      I would say:
       

      In general, internal life becomes more meaningful. Lonely hosts get a little less lonely, and the host/tulpa relationship is always evolving and deepening. 
      Mental control is improved: hosts learn to discern their thoughts from their tulpa's and from intrusives, and they learn to quickly and easily dissmiss intrusives, and replace intrusive ideas with more purposeful/mindful ones. 
      Tulpamancy sparks a great introspective time of self-discovery for the host. Switching fronters is a path by which the host sees how much of their behaviors is linked to their beliefs/personality. The tulpa also has access to memories and beliefs that the host may have never shared externally, so conversations may happen on topics that no one has ever had the host think about, before.
      Boredom is a different, easily-defeatable beast. Empty moments waiting in line are filled with lively converstion and company. This is a signifigant improvement in daily life to many. 
      Visualization improves greatly, leading to more enjoyment of reading, and an easier time with a variety of tasks, and again, a more fulfilling internal life. 
      The system flourishes with few heartaches. Number of members stabilizes and everyone is happy with the amount of attention they recieve. 
      Doubts about the reality of a plural experience become fleeting or a thing of the past. The system trusts in the reality of their experiences, even if they aren't easily explainable. 
      Tulpamancy is a life-long commitment: the system will endure and age together. 
      The system forms a unique point-of-view about how some tulpa-related thing works, and comes and shares their opinions and theories with the community ;p

      Happier, healthier, with a more meaningful life. -J
