In case if scary tulpa delete is the only option?

Recommended Posts

I have read that while it is rare it is possible that the tulpa you are creating end (or actually start?) being very scary and also the recommendations are like ignore it and it will dissapear/die/stop existing whatever


Has anyone thought if it is possible to make it change? I know it could be hard for anyone but dont you guys say that creating a tulpa is kinda like creating life (i mean should be treated with respect and put some real thought before doing it, its not just visions)? Someone that will be always with you? I feel like a scary tulpa is like a tulpa with impurities caused by... I dunno, bad concentration, forcing after watching some terror movies or while sleepy, etc.


So it would be possible to "purify" the tulpa by putting some real effort in "healing" them with serious forcing instead of ignoring it to death?


I ask this because (while I have never created a tulpa really want to create one) what if my tulpa ends being scary/creepy? I would feel scared sure but maybe Im the one to blame that it is the way it is... and I should be the one helping it instead of just press delete and start new game.


Sorry if my english is bad, feel free to tell me my mistakes so I can get better

In the rare cases where someone reports that their tulpa is malicious, it's usually because they're mistreated, which is completely understandable. It's very unlikely to happen on its own out of nowhere, so don't let horror stories on the internet give you the wrong idea. You're not going to end up with a "scary tulpa" because of bad concentration or forcing after you've seen a horror movie - it's possible that you might get some bad intrusive thoughts because of the latter, but ignoring them and getting back to whatever it was you were doing usually doesn't take too much effort.

Delete is usually not the only option, and dissipation is generally a "last resort" suggestion. Things like communication with the tulpa, setting up a reward/punishment system for them, and just generally meeting them halfway and acknowledging whatever it is they're kicking up a fuss about... those are all things that should be tried before an extreme like dissipation.


So in answer to your question, yes. I'm not sure what you were reading that made you think the main suggestion to a misbehaving tulpa is "delete and start over," because for most of us, that's usually the last thing suggested. For the very reasons you stated.

One has to wonder in their journey in creating a tulpa that in order for them to end up being scary, or anything of negative implications is maybe due to the mentality they as the host had while creating them. Of course, I’m not sure all tulpas become an incarnate version of all your latent emotions, whatever they may be, and suddenly destroy any chance for you to flourish with them in some way. Who knows?


And even if they were to cultivate negative behaviors, instead of thinking it as preparing a kill-switch, maybe acknowledge the probability that they can change their demeanor over time. Just like how you would be treating them as sentient, or whatever mentality suits you, if there’s enough experiential context over time, I’m sure you’ll realize that change can be possible, especially if one presumes there’s a continuity of self that can be progressively changed. This could be a potential call to ‘purifying’ them, or ‘healing’ them, I guess.


Dissipation isn’t the only option, and I made a thread before about dissipation leading to a few cross-roads in assessing the conflict that made the host see it as a viable option. And the one I see that could be a likely trend is that over time, there’s a loss of novelty over what the host has done; as if all their efforts go in vain, and it may, or may not be difficult for them to reconcile with creating another one, or whatever experiential context that was left off before. These are just moments where we become paralyzed by our own intellect on what to do, but whatever decision you make is really up to you as we all end up taking ownership of the privacy of our minds.

One of the primary source documents for tulpas was the book Magic and Mystery in Tibet by Alexandra David Neel. In that account, not only could other people see her tulpa that she created, but it went evil and she had to dissipate it. She made no attempt to heal it, or didn't mention any attempt to heal it. I wonder is she had tried if she would have been able to keep her Friar Tuck tulpa?


To her, tulpas were illusory but also magical in nature. According to her accounts, to Tibetan lamas, magicians and mystics, thought, magic and spiritualism all overlap. In the Western world we make firm divisions between the mind and the real world. But I often wonder if the Tibetans aren't on to something.

You probably read one of those pinkie pie creepy pastas, eh?

I've been in threads like those, and they're all just role playing BS.

If that shit happened for real, the person would be way too preoccupied to get online and have a conversation about it.

Also, it's unlikely that a brand new tulpamancer would even be capable of creating a tulpa sophisticated enough to overpower its host.


You've got nothing to worry about, broski. But if you do get scared just remind yourself that love conquers all.

Your tulpa is not going to be evil.


What about mischievous jokes or taunting that borders on being cruel?   


I suppose having a heart to heart talk could solve any issues like that.

But if my best loving effort has no effect, and I have a life of my own to live with so little time and energy: "Bye-bye!"

This is why I visualize all of my servitors as programs, so that I can give them fail-safes.

Just last week one of them decided that "protecting the system" meant rounding up all the harmless little NPC animals and shoving them into stasis pods.

A friggin warehouse full of woodland critters heaped into piles... I tried not to laugh, I honestly did.

      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.

      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
