Hello! I'm back into Tulpas! Stuffed Animal Tulpa!


Recommended Posts

YumiBerry

Hi, there! It's certainly been a while, yeah? Due to a lot of stress, I had a really hard time focusing on my tulpa and having the time and physical/mental energy to dedicate to Jane (thanks disability!) due to the detail and everything else about her, so we put that on hold for a while.

 

Now, onto a different idea for a tulpa we got.

The youngest in our system, Little, a long while back picked up her then new stuffed rabbit toy (like from build-a-bear) and decided to ask for its name. She immediately got "Tiffany!~" in response, in mind voice, and more distinctive than most any of us have had, and we've been around for many years. We assume it's because Little is more in-touch with her imagination/world/people-building skills than most of us teens/adults in the system, but it caught even her off guard. Since then, Tiffany has become her most favorite stuffed animal, but she never got around to expanding upon Tiffany and what could become of her. Little decided with the help of our GF to try tulpa forcing again, but this time, with Tiffany!

 

We already have an idea/memory of what her voice would sound like and heck, we've got the physical example of what she looks like right here. Little finds a great source of comfort in Tiffany and in extension we all do (being linked in the mind and all that). We're not going to say she must look this way if she ever decided to take a mindspace form visually, she could be just as she is, human, anthropomorphic, neko, or interchangeable. That'll be completely up to her. I also think since we have the stuffed animal in person with all of its details, that'd help with that aspect of her form as when we'll be experimenting with visual-imposition, something we've always been fascinated with.

 

Besides, when Little is physically in control of the body, she really is a true child. She already adores hugging onto Tiffany, so I can only imagine how much more secure she'd feel if there was that level of attachment to the toy. She'd hug her and feel she was really hugging her best (stuffed) friend. That'd be good for a little one who has little to no friends outside of our GF.

 

Has anyone here done this before and have any advice or suggestions? Can we just treat this as your general tulpa-build or is there a better way to go about this for a stuffed animal/object? If not, thank you anyway!

Nee, Star, Little, Tenebre, Lorina

It works about the same as any other tulpa build. You can do some stuff different with a physical focus, but I can't say I've witnessed this happen while I've been around.

I apologize, what do you mean by "You can do some stuff different with a physical focus, but I can't say I've witnessed this happen while I've been around."?

Oh. Heh.

 

You can use the stuffed animal as the form of your tulpa and meditate while staring at it.

 

In the nine months I've been here, no one has used a stuffed animal as a base for a tulpa.

      Tulpas: Creation, Sentience, and Vocality
       
      This guide was written to cover the beginning stages of tulpamancy from creation to vocalization in a way that's useful and comprehensible to someone new to the concept, detailing general guidelines, tips, explanations, and other practical information to help someone beginning their tulpa journey.

      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.

      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.

      (I'm new to this forum so I apologize for anything I'm doing wrong)
       
      When I was around 7 I created myself an imaginary friend out of spite for my mother (NOTE: my mother is a good person and I know spite is a horrible reason to create a tulpa, but I was a kid and barely knew anything). But instead of making a regular imaginary friend, I took my inner voice of common sense and decided to make that my imaginary friend. I gave her a small personality, called her Sarah, and imagined that she lived inside a Pekingese figurine by my bedstand. For the next week or so I would carry that figurine around, and instead of listening to my mother I would ask the statue, "What should I do, Sarah?" I'll then imagine Sarah telling me what the most common-sense-ish (for lack of a better word) thing to do was. After a while I stopped carrying the statue, but Sarah would continue to talk to me.
       
      Once I reached puberty, I still had Sarah, and like many other imaginary friends who exist for that long, she began to develop some kind of sentience. Instead of only saying what I wanted to hear, she would openly challenge what I was doing if it wasn't the wisest decision. She would instigate conversation independently, comment on others, etc. She even changed her name to Anielka. When I finally learned what tulpas were years later, I realized she fit the definition for a tulpa and/or shard. (I learned that a shard is a sentient consciousness made from your own personality, like how Anielka was made out of my common sense, but I may be wrong).
       
      Onto the question: Despite the fact that she still has a bit of difficulty speaking in certain areas, when it comes to helping me make a good decision she is incredibly vocal. But sometimes, if I myself think of something common-sense-ish or wise, it'll start off with my mindvoice and my words, but by the end it's entirely Anielka's. Similarly, sometimes when she thinks of something off-topic, it'll start off in her voice and end in mine. I won't be able to tell if I said it, or Anielka (she doesn't know either). I heard of the term "blending" in a couple plurality communities and I think that is the best description of what's happening. But unlike when others describe blending, it's often triggered by an event, but mine happen randomly and quite frequently. It's not frightening in any way, just a little unnerving that most of my own thoughts on the matter somehow turn into hers.
       
      Is this something I should worry about? Or is it just the nature of a shard, which was formed out of me instead of by me, to do this? Am I mistaking my own thoughts for a tulpa?
       
      A bit of information if it helps answer the question:
      - I've been diagnosed with Body Dysmorphic Disorder and have a pending diagnosis on ADHD. BDD has intrusive, terrifying thoughts that cause me to worry about how I look obsessively (even if I look normal), and ADHD makes it hard for me to focus for long periods of time. Anielka has been amazing at helping with both. Reminding me nobody judges me for what I look like, helping me to stay on task and celebrating with me when I get something done.
      - Anielka is my only tulpa, though I tried making more.
      - I don't have problems with identity or forget who I am. 
      - I have a strong imagination and there have been times in the past I confused fantasy for reality. It rarely happens anymore, though.
      - I currently have good relations with my mother.
      - I never visualize Anielka. Even after I stopped carrying the dog figurine around, I still believed that was where her "soul" is, and to this day it feels unnatural and mildly distressing for her to imagine her outside of that statue.
       
      Thanks!
