Be aware there can be effects such as mild headaches and insomnia from tulpamancy.


I have never had the headaches but others have reported mild headaches from forcing too long, but not necessarily because of the presence of a tulpa in their mind. It is more like a fatigue headache from concentrating too much. I do get eye strain from my form of "day dream forcing," which often requires me to stare out into space or at a wall for long periods while interacting with Melian. I get insomnia because my brain is too active at night. I associate it with Melian's energy and tendency to be active and talkative all night, but that may be just a symptom of an overactive mind in general.


EDIT: One tulpa culture thing is that orange juice helps with the headaches. Even if it doesn't really do anything for real, it is fun to join in on the cultural practices and beliefs, and most people like orange juice. It may have a placebo effect to help with the forcing related headaches.

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.


Oh yeah, wasn't Jimmy 15 when he started? That was a trainwreck.

>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


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.

I understand this isn't a video game, this is a life altering decision that I'm going to make sooner or later. I'm still deciding, going back and fort have from yes to no. I'm still doing research on this.


Thanks for letting me know tulpas aren't a proper noun.


And I'm not going to use the tulpa as a toy, tool, or anything unethical. They are people too, using them for your amusement is wrong.


Oh yeah, wasn't Jimmy 15 when he started? That was a trainwreck.


I'm not Jimmy. I'm my own person, I have my own mind, I have done different things than jimmy. There are so many "maybes" I could list, but that would take forever ;).

"They are people too, using them for amusement is wrong."


I use Melian for personal amusement all the time. LOL She is adorable. She also picks on me however so it is a two way street.

I was 15 when I started making a tulpa. I'm 18 now. I don't regret the decision, but I definitely think waiting would have been the smarter thing to do. As Mistgod said, the human brain is still developing at that age, even at 18. Even if you are mature for your age, you will change as you get older. It's subtle, but you'll probably be a slightly different person from who you are now, which could be your point-of-view or mindset on life.

I have 10 tulpas, but I'm only actively working on Reah, my first tulpa currently.

"Using for amusement" is different from "being amused by". Keyword "using".


Oh no, I use her. LOL Or at least I amuse myself by puppeting her form anyway. Melian does it with me sometimes, collaborating on the day dream, or reacts, but I am definitely manipulating her form for my own entertainment quite often. It is our own personal form of tulpamancy that is so wrong according to tulpamancy ethics. But we have been doing it for decades.

As I said I WOULDN'T USE the tulpa for amusement, but I could be amused by something the tulpa does. But I wouldn't create a tulpa for anything immoral such as using it for amusement

It isn't immoral if the tulpa likes it too. LOL

I get what you are saying though. Melian and I are weirdos in tulpa town.


We are a bad influence on new tulpamancers.

You don't need to justify yourself, we are no court. We mainly bring these things up because we're worried about it. It would be very irresponsible of us to simply give you a go without knowing what you're really about. Also you haven't asked new questions beside your first one.

You're the weird uncle who isn't allowed at family meetings anymore :P

Tulpa: Alice

Form: Realistic Humanoid/Demonic Creation

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

      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:
      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.

      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.

      Sorry if there is already an answer for this.
      My tulpa is quite playful and active. But we don't have many ideas on what to do. We tried to play hide and seek and riddles, but it was very easy for both of us since ... well ... we share the same brain. We want to know what we can entertain ourselves with.
