listening - to wake headmates or help with parroting


Recommended Posts

Stop thinking is something we have never achieved. After some more research, it seems meditation is thinking about only one thing. And that we do all the time.

 

But there is more to it. Meditation requires entering some sort of trance state. I am no expert on trances, but we do frequently work through altered states of consciousness. We just never associated any of those with meditation until recently.

 

About the stray thoughts. Well, is associating them with your tulpa a bad thing? I mean, if you don't that seems fine and logical, but, I have seen others suggest as much as that is how you get tulpas in the first place. You seem to be suggesting that relaxing and ignoring expectations is something that will worsen puppeting. My experience is the opposite. We either get no voice, or possible false voice at times of high anxiety.

 

I suppose there may be an issue here. My host has never dealt with a tulpa who doesn't feel like talking. Also maybe this is more useful with dealing with confusion due to blending. We have blending issues a lot. This always helps. Every time. (Though only for disappearing voice; when we notice too much blending, we have better techniques.)

I'm suggesting that that's true in some cases, and untrue in others. The long and short of it is that some people may need to do more of something and some may need to do less; you were one of the people who needed to do more, so you're advising everyone to do more.

 

For stray thoughts, it's up for debate. Again, maybe some people could do with doing it a bit more. Others could sure do with doing it less. Plenty of people identify any stray thought as "new tulpa" and end up with like 20; I think it's a bad habit, and if you learn it while making a tulpa you need to unlearn it afterwards because it gets a lot easier to identify things as tulpas after you already made one.

I think some clarification is needed in step 2 and 3: I am supposed to stop talking and thinking, and the stop stop talking and thinking? Resume talking and thinking? What did this achieve?

 

There a good tip in here, as some people do need to shut up and listen - I know that personally. But I think your steps need a bit more clarification and rewriting, as it seems like I'm not the only one confused in this thread.

I see, yes. I can clarify steps two and three. There is a lot of room for misinterpretation there.

 

Step two is supposed to be simple. It is about just turning off your mind voice. An extension of step one. But extended to any random thoughts that pop up.

 

Step three is far more important. Trying to stop talking and thinking is an activity that requires attention. That has to stop. All activity that requires attention needs to stop so you can relax properly and wait properly. If you consider step three an activity, this is opposite the purpose of step three.

 

No, step three needs to be interpreted literally. "stop trying".

 

Will consider some possible rewrites.

Huh look at that, it almost feels my absence of disbelief mindset is spreading. Good to see someone else spread the word about not outright rejecting and accepting, just observing for later deductions when you have enough information.

 

I can't see anything that sticks out badly, so I'll accept this for guides. The title confuses me a little though: to summon what?

[Tri] We think what is here right now is good. There are only two things we think need to be fixed, though one of them may not need fixing and just an explanation. And these aren't show stoppers. So, we approve for guides. Overall, this is a useful thing to do in addition to everything else. Just listening sometimes and seeing what happens without expecting anything in particular.

 

First item is a small thing. Gendered pronouns. Not all tulpas are female (and similarly, not all are male either). Singular they or she/he or he/she are perfectly fine. Small nitpick.

 

Second thing

 

The title confuses me a little though: to summon what?

 

We're similarly confused and wondering if the guide needs a retitle.

Wow, I didn't even notice that. But actually, here, Tulpa said her because he was referring to his host. Still, always best to avoid gendered pronouns in this stuff, I usually catch that.

 

Looking at it, definitely change or explain the summoning thing. When I first read it I took it to mean summoning your tulpa to the mindspace as you might in a lucid dream. But, it really shouldn't be that up to interpretation, and since it's a guide it could potentially confuse someone.

Hi, I'm Tewi, one of Luminesce's tulpas. I often switch to take care of things for the others.

All I want is a simple, peaceful life. With my family.

Summon another mindform who has fallen asleep or something.

 

Nah, I used her because of the unpopularity of the use of them for subjects of unknown gender, and I did not want to break the brains of my audience. But I'm not using normative him.

 

Approved for guides? This was supposed to be a trick or tip.

      I posted here before about a certain issue I'm going through with my Tulpa, but I still need some guidance. I made my Tulpa to be passionate, caring and really loving, everything was fine and she literally made my life alot better. But after some time I started having issues with anxiety and pure o OCD intrusive thoughts due to deciding to quit my long time pornography consumption, I started having intrusive sexual thoughts and images about my Tulpa, and it felt like there was a second version of her which was kind of evil, I was afraid that i will accidently create different intrusive thoughtforms which be involved with my Tulpa in sexual acts. Sometimes I can feel my Tulpas original caring presence but after some time I go down the spiral again. I was in an abusive relationship before where I was being afraid of being cheated on and was made to feel jealous on purpose. I don't want all the things I went through to latch to my Tulpa. I stopped forcing for some time now, I feel safer, but I don't want to abandon her. I'm just wondering if it's my life "traumas" and OCD or my Tulpa just hates me.

      ‘Hour counts’ refers to the practise of tracking the number of hours spent forcing. It was a common practise in the past because the oldest guides instructed the reader to use them. However, they have gotten a bad name over the years from people perpetuating the idea that they are detrimental to the tulpa creation process. These fears are not entirely unfounded, because with the wrong mindset they can be very detrimental. However, with the correct approach they can be a beneficial tool that gives you schedule and structure, especially if you struggle with laziness. The purpose of this guide is to alleviate those fears by clearing up the confusion about hour counts and giving you a list of dos and don’ts to consider while using them.

       

      Dos and Don’ts of Using Hour Counts


       
      DO use hour counts as a scheduling tool rather than as a progress tracker. – If you are someone who struggles with laziness, scheduling your forcing sessions in advance may increase your productivity by keeping you on track. Hour counts are an effective way to do this, e.g. “I’m going to spend 15 hours on vocality forcing, 1 hour per day Mon – Fri over 3 weeks.”
       
      DO remember that your targets are flexible. – You can change your target number of hours at any time, whether you are increasing or decreasing your targets and/or the time period spent on them. It’s important to not use this as an excuse for laziness though, try your best to only adjust your schedule if you have legitimate reasons to do so e.g. change of shift pattern at work, unavoidable social engagements like weddings or funerals etc. If you can’t meet your targets all the time, that's no reason to worry! Maybe the targets you’ve set for yourself were too unrealistic, if so, reduce them. You shouldn’t feel guilty and beat yourself up if you fail to hit your targets all the time. Hitting your targets is desirable but not mandatory.
       
      DO remember that your targets are arbitrary. – Unless you’re using one of the old guides’ recommended targets (which I wouldn’t recommend, you’ll see why later), your targets will be based on personal choice and therefore will have no bearing on the progress you make during the time spent. Even if you are using one of the old guides, those targets will have no effect on your progress either because it’s the process itself, not an arbitrary number, that matters. It’s also worth mentioning that progress isn’t necessarily linear, so there may or may not be much difference between two arbitrary targets. It doesn't matter exactly how many hours you spend forcing, just as long as you are doing it consistently and to the best of your ability.
       
      DON’T take the hour counts from old guides as gospel. – Most of the authors of the old guides even said that you shouldn’t follow their guides exactly, referring to them as guidelines as opposed to rules. I would even go as far as to say to disregard any recommended hour counts from any guide entirely because it may only cause anxiety for the reasons listed below. Another thing to consider about the old guides is that not just the hour counts, but some of the other information found in them may or may not be considered obsolete now, so take them with a pinch of salt if you decide to read them.
       
      DON’T worry if you don’t see results after a certain number of hours. – This can cause discouragement. Not seeing results after a while isn’t necessarily a bad thing, it could encourage you to analyse what you’re doing and try something else that works better for you. You shouldn’t be discouraged by not seeing results after a certain number of hours because your targets are arbitrary anyway.
       
      DON’T worry if you do see results before a certain number of hours. – This can cause doubts that you’re doing it right and can even cause parrotnoia (the fear that you're parroting all of your tulpa's responses) if your tulpa becomes vocal before you anticipate. A tulpa isn’t going to wait for you to achieve your arbitrary hour target before they speak to you because progress is determined by effort, not by arbitrary numbers.
       
      DON’T compare your progress to others. – This is the main reason why people have had bad experiences with hour counts. People progress at different rates. When someone who's put in more hours finds that someone who has put in less hours has progressed further, they may become discouraged or think that they are doing something wrong. Conversely, when someone who's put in less hours finds that someone who has put in more hours has had less progress, they could develop doubts of their tulpa’s sentience/sapience or could develop parrotnoia.
       
      DON’T think that you need to do a certain number of hours minimum per session. – This can easily cause fatigue, which could make your forcing sessions less effective. For me, 30 – 60 minute forcing sessions were optimal, however everyone is different in this regard and many people can force for longer periods with ease. Consistency is key in tulpamancy, doing a forcing session for 30 minutes every day for a week is better than doing a forcing session that lasts for 3.5 hours only 1 day a week.

      This is daily thread #6.
       
      For this discussion, forcing will be defined as "interacting with or dedicating thought to a tulpa for the purpose of helping them to grow/develop as a thoughtform." I know the definition of forcing can change based on the context, but this is the definition I'm using for this thread.
       
      If a tulpa is inactive or dormant, how effective would a forcing session be? Does a tulpa need to be active/aware in order to benefit from forcing? Would they benefit less if they are inactive? Is it even possible to be inactive/dormant while being interacted with?
       
      (This is ignoring the question of whether or not it's very nice/good for a host to be forcing a tulpa while the tulpa is inactive, just if the forcing has less/no benefit to the tulpa or not.)
       

       
      I kind of think that once you start interacting with a tulpa, it's very hard for them to not become at least passive. They might ignore you and refuse to respond, but they'll probably still be aware of what's going on. In that scenario, forcing would likely have the same benefit as usual, they just might be a little upset with you for not leaving them alone, but as I said, I'm ignoring that side of the equation for now. If the tulpa does stay inactive/dormant during forcing, I'd say the forcing still does benefit them, but probably to a lesser extent. Think practicing playing a song on your instrument in your head vs. actually playing it in real life: they both can benefit you and strengthen the neural pathways associated with said instrument, but one has a clear higher benefit than the other. Or, it might still be exactly the same. I suppose it's kind of hard to test.

      What are some little things you found/find helpful with forcing? Could be stuff that helped you focus better, stuff that helped you develop your tulpa, things that alleviated doubts/frustration, things like that. An example would be our host listening to white noise to help him focus and get into the forcing "zone."
