This morning there was this great thread here about the process and techniques people have used to achieve imposition. https://community.tulpa.info/thread-imposition-how-did-you-learn-practice-imposition

 

I wanted to add this thread out there to go with it. As soon as I saw the "how did you achieve imposition?" question, my actual reaction was "there just can't be very many who have really achieved this at all." I am being honest, that was my thought. So I am curious to see how many people respond saying they have achieved imposition or are trying it.

 

Very recently I have been considering that a true tulpa would be fully imposed as in a full sensory hallucination. Anything less is something like an enhanced imaginary friend or even an alternate personality (or maybe an unfinished tulpa, which is not really a tulpa). I don't say that to make anyone upset. It is just Mistgod thinking again so ignore it if you don't like that statement. No need for angry rebuttals on that please. Alexandra David Neel and other authors describe tulpas as sensory hallucinations.

 

The reason why I have been thinking that is because I think the concept of "tulpa" has been gradually being watered down. The original concept was a projected hallucination, manifest thought that you can see, hear and feel in a seemingly tangible way.

 

So. Are you attempting imposition? Have you achieved imposition?

 

Question for comment responses (separate from the poll): Does a thoughtform need to be imposed to be a considered a tulpa?

You accidentally a word in the title.

 

We've done imposition before and had decent results, but it's not something we're super interested in so we haven't done it intensively since last year.

 

I don't consider it necessary at all to have a tulpa. I don't remember if the original tulpas required a projected appearance, but I don't think so? I thought said tulpas were thought to be communing with god(s) or some such, so that would be weird, but I dunno. Pretty sure it was a mental experience as if they had a physical appearance the illusion would be broken when others didn't notice them.

 

Our definition's changed, of course, so it doesn't really matter. Tulpas are tulpas whether or not they can switch, possess or impose. Those are just optional skills many attempt to develop. A tulpa at its core is the apparent autonomy of a separate person in your head. Anything else is auxiliary.

Hi! I'm Lumi, host of Reisen, Tewi, Flandre and Lucilyn.

Everyone deserves to love and be loved. It's human nature.

My tulpas and I have a Q&A thread, which was the first (and largest) of its kind. Feel free to ask us stuff.

We've accomplished imposition, but we're of the opinion that you don't need to have all of that down to have a tulpa. Tulpas don't require a form, voice, etc. as far as I know, so I don't see why that would be the case.

A tulpa doesn't require a form or a voice either? So a tulpa can be just emotional responses and a presence? If that is the case, Melian was a tulpa as far back as 1978.

"Mistgod Thinking" can kiss my butt. But I see what you're up to this time. I agree that a tulpa should be able to reach some form of imposition sooner or later. If you don't attempt imposition you leave your tulpa "unfinished" to some degree. But since it is probably the most difficult task I can see why a lot of people won't reach that level. I don't agree that you need to reach a full sensory hallucination for your tulpa to count as tulpa. Let's say you can't smell your tulpa. This would be a stupid reason to degrade your tulpa to "just an enhanced imaginary friend". It is still a tulpa with all defining aspects, just with one lacking piece. I'm really unsure about how people in the past really handled this. For them it was always a target to reach the full sensory hallucination, but we can't ask them how they felt about their tulpa during the creation process, how they would label them.

 

Alice is handling touch imposition atleast, I'm unsure about other aspects. Her voice might appear as auditory hallucination from time to time, but it is really hard for me to tell if it really is. I'm unsure about her appearance aswell. Technically I project her image right onto my view, but I think it is rather a mix of my minds eye and what I really see. Also she lacks control about her visibility, which I want to change somehow. She can move her appearance and everything, but in most cases I need to project it for now. Sometimes she seems able to handle it herself. It is a work in progress, for sure.

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

What exactly is "complete" imposition?

 

I do seem to remember having a discussion and hypothesizing that if a tulpa were fully imposed, it could sit in front of you, blocking your conscious view of something, but your tulpa could tell you what was in front of them. Something like if someone was showing you a card, "you" couldn't be able to see what card it is, but your tulpa could tell you what it is.

 

Does that sound right?

@Everyone,

 

Interesting responses so far! Thanks.

 

You know I love to stir things up. LOL I just found a new angle this morning. I tried "all tulpas are illusory and non-sentient" and ultimately failed horribly. I learned stuff that means something to me along the way however. So now this. "Nobody really has a tulpa or very few do." I love ruffling feathers! The trick is not to take me too seriously. I am full of shit and very clueless really.

Yeah, I would consider that full imposition I guess? Oh the thought experiments that imposition leads to!

That would be an level of unreachable visual imposition if i got it right.

 

Let's differ: If the tulpa is sitting in front of you, blocking your view, but the card is still facing your direction, but you can't see it because of your tulpa, you would have a really good visual imposition. This doesn't defines the missing senses like touching, hearing etc. So i wouldn't count just that as fully imposed, since you would need to include the other senses aswell on that level.

 

If the card isn't facing your direction, and only visible to the eyes of your tulpa, it shouldn't be able for your tulpa to tell you what card it is, or we enter the metaphysical.

It is a beautiful derailment, so I love it of course!

 

I have touched on tulpa perception a bit before. It is interesting to consider these things as it relates to tulpa sentience. How much does the tulpa perceive in association with or through its form? How is this perception achieved and how much of it is illusion? How much of the illusion is projected from the tulpa's mind and how much is projected from the host's mind? Is it a collaborative illusion?

Yeah, that was specifically for visual imposition. Other senses are harder to block, so using that as a measure for the completeness of imposition wouldn't work for, say, touch or smell. Maybe for hearing if your tulpa could plug your ears with their fingers, but that's a different story.

 

And the card is definitely facing you, no metaphysics here. If your tulpa was not "out" then it would just be you looking at a card and seeing that it's the Jack of Hearts or whatever.

      I wrote this guide, to describe the method I came up with to impose my tulpa. It works very well for me. I hope that it can be useful to some of you as well.

      Tulpa Imposition Guide (endoalir) PDF.pdf
    • By NED
      I whined that we needed an imposition guide so I decided to experiment with my own methods in order to make one for you guys. I did not have to experiment for long as my first method was very successful.
       
      Basically this leash method is similar to FAQman's method of imagining your Tulpa behind you and eventually mastering that and over time you become good enough to imagine it in your central vision and then it becomes real.
       
      This method is just like that. But wait! There's more!
       
      A leash; basically imagine a leash/chain/rope/any other form of physical attachment or linkage and tie one end to yourself (waist or wrist reccommended) and the other end to your Tulpa.
       
      Now because you are now attached to eachother, you cannot escape eachother as easy. When you walk around you are able to feel the 'tug' of the leash as you pull your Tulpa around. This is very helpful.
       
      This method is also great because I noticed that whenever i 'forgot' my Tulpa and she was drifting away from my mind, she is able to tug on the rope, catching my attention and making me remember her again.
       
      Because she is able to simply tug a rope and remind me that she was behind her or wanted attention; this has greatly benefitted my progress. I can now imagine her nearly all the time and I have seen her in the corner of my eyes 3 times. All in a space of nearly a week.
       
      Protips:
      -Draw a chainlink or some other symbol on your hand to keep reminding yourself of the chain, this seems to give bursts of clarity in visualising her behind me
      -Don't forget to pull the chain yourself if you feel they are drifting away or you are losing them.
       
      Warnings and reccomendations:
      -This leash is kind of oppressive to some or maybe offensive so make sure you Tulpa is okay with it
      -Make sure you and your Tulpa have the ability to remove the leash. You do not want to develop an unfree Tulpa
      -Make sure to take breaks from this method as the Tulpa will most likely want some alone time from this.
      -Make sure your Tulpa is sentient enough to change the length of the rope at will so they are a little more free.
       
      Disclaimers:
      I did this method well into sentience (she can speak and move perfectly) and got fantastic results as my Tulpa can now gain my attention in the real world at any moment she wants, all she needs to do is make a small bit of pressure around my wrist simulating the tug of a rope, (she even claims its simple and makes her life alot easier, she says without it, it was very frustrating) I do not know what will happen or if it would work if you did this at an earlier stage.

      Yo, guys. Sparky here to share something I found while researching imposition. Whether or not this has been seen or discussed before, long forgotten in a thread in the catacombs beneath our forum is unknown to me.
       
      But it's not mine, so I'll post it here first and, if it's deemed better posted elsewhere, that's fine too.

      I made this time a while ago while trying to make a guide for people on touch imposition from what I have done in the past when I was learning to do it few years ago (before the tulpa community). I'm not sure how good it is, but I thought it would be worth posting anyway.
       
      Note: It often helps to believe that what you are imagining is really there. Closing your eyes and thus not knowing if it is there or not can help as well.
       
      Index:
      1. Basic principle of this method
      2a-4b. How to start doing controlled hallucination of touch
      5. How to continue getting better at this
       
      1) The basic principle behind this method is recreating the perception created by one of the senses, in this case caused by touch, of something you have experienced already.
       
      2a) An easy way to start is by recreating a small focused (on a small area) feeling that you can control to some degree (caused by you or someone who wants to help you). For example you could start by doing a circle by going with one of your fingers over your palm of your other hand and then stop and recreate the feeling. When you can do that well enough, then try making a spiral or another more complicated object.
       
      2b) After you get that down well enough, stop recreating a stimulus and instead start feeling (without actually using your finger to do it or feeling it beforehand) new shapes, that you haven't tried yet, or just seemingly random movements. You can try making anything you want, but it should be something that you haven't caused yourself to feel yet.
       
      3a) Now, recreate more than one small focused feeling at once. For example you could use more than one finger at a time. Start with two fingers and trying to reproduce the feeling, and move up to using all of your fingers.
       
      3b) Let's stop recreating feelings again and instead start creating multiple small focused feelings created by something that you have used in 4a), but in a way that you haven't felt before.
       
      4a) When you are able to do those well enough, then you should move onto recreating a feeling that focuses on a bigger area. For example you could put one of your hands over the other hand in any position you would like and try to feel it as much as you can and try to remember that feeling as well as you can. After that stop feeling that feeling and try to recreate it. In the case of using your limbs, I would recommend placing them apart from each other and in a way that they aren't touching any part of your body and then try to recreate the feeling that you got first on only one hand and then on both hands.
       
      4b) Now, stop recreating those feelings and start creating it in a way you haven't felt before.
       
      5) Continue this general set of steps (in Xa and Xb) and do them with more and more complicated feelings. You can of course try creating feelings that you have never felt before and aren't possible to feel in physical world like having wings, being out of slime, having animal ears, tail, paws, etc.

      So I've been reading imposition guides and I was wondering if basically all you do is "paste your tulpa over reality, and how long does this take? Also can my tulpa make me hallucinate things other than her form?
