Tulpa's Complete DIY Guide to Tulpamancy

Recommended Posts

Tri, I made some minor alterations to chapter 2, but I feel like I've reached a limit in adding content the chapter.


In addition:


With regards to your use of "natural plurals" in the preface' date=' do you mean both endogenic and traumagenic plurality (as well as any other that isn't created) or just endogenic.[/quote']

Tulpas are artificial plurality.


What you described with fugue is partially accurate, but it is using the other meaning of "identity" (as in, social/legal identity) which causes ambiguity since all other uses of identity is the more subjective personal kind. It is dissociative amnesia of biographical information and going forward anyways/wandering/etc. taking a name possibly and what not as one goes.

What you define is a fugue state, which "often" involves walking around. What is the subjective personal definition of identity?


Would maybe change "Tulpas rarely suffer the same mental conditions you do" to "Tulpas rarely suffer the same mental conditions with the exact same flavor/manifestation as you do." since often mental conditions are shared like you say later but different people in a brain handle them differently and/or deal with different symptomology like you mention later.

The studies I linked back the statement. I'll change it if you can find reason the studies are misleading.



waffles, with the new introductory text in chapters 4, 5, and 6, I am now happy with the structure of those chapters, so I won't be making any more changes on that front unless someone points out a new flaw.

Back to this again, huh?


Well, it's a very long one and I've been kind of busy, so I couldn't really read it in one go and that might mean some things will be a bit off or repeated or something. Or maybe you repeated something in the guide and I didn't catch it because I forgot what was said earlier. Keep that in mind. No idea if you already managed to change some things while I was working on this because other people mentioned stuff uhh



Using terms like tulpamancy, systems and plurals etc. is still pretty silly-looking. If you are planning on using said terms right from the start and looking at the style you have written things, I would suggest you explain the terms in passing the first time you use each term, for newcomers. Having a list at the end doesn't help with this, because we start from page 1 and not page bajillion. Having a list at the start just clutters it. A simple quick definition when needed would go a long way.


"Subconscious" is back with vengeance. Too bad I still have no idea what you actually mean with it. You say you don't mean an entity (I think?) but you always make it sound like one and you have written about "subconscious entities" in your text in a way that doesn't suggest you don't believe in them…


The further I got into this, the more I started to wonder if shuffling everything around works. You used to have a list of exercises for people, which made it easy for people to pretty much skip all the stuff and head right to them for help. Now you have sprinkled the exercises around, which does work better with a guide format, but… It makes the assumption people will read the whole thing. They won't. It's long. That's kinda what people do. Was there a huge disclaimer at the start about there being exercises in pretty much every chapter to help with the contents of said chapter? Most people will scroll over table of contents and miss it, but would start reading the actual text parts. This might help people find the exercises that are now much more hidden than before.


As the citations aren't clickable (I think? I don't think it's going to even be possible?), it's pretty difficult to check them in the middle of reading.


When looking at your creation guide, you do refer to personality/form/voice as the first step, second step and third step. But technically you don't really need any of them. Maybe make a note that they're the first etc. step as far as it comes to your guide? Considering the rest of the tone of what you have written, someone might very well take it as some universal truth.


Then some stuff. Typos and questions and objections and all that good old stuff.




A great deal of the community's base comes from 4chan.


That is how it started. I guess in that way, the "base" indeed does come from there. But not much of that "base" is around anymore. Are the newbies from various chans? They don't really seem to be having the skin for being able to handle such a culture, so I am skeptical. Seems more Tumblr/Reddit crowd, honestly.


Known by some as the land of the Social Justice Warrior...


Plural, surely? Warriors?


A basic example, if you go old school and do not assist your tulpa in any way but force them for long hours, they tend to have little trouble thinking independently of your attention and keeping secrets.


Maybe I'm just tired as I read this, but I can read this both ways. They don't have issues or they do have some issues with that. Which one do you mean?[/hidden]


Intro otherwise fine.



First chapter is mostly fine (though is the last sentence in the intro supposed to be there?). Some subconscious talk. I have no idea what your definition of sapience is though, if you're claiming computers are sapient. We don't have AIs of that caliber yet.


gonna start hiding chapters because long, chapter two


>all beliefs are false until proven true, is not a very scientific mindset and I find it weird that you have kept this in this chapter. The symbolic zapping ritual/distraction aids for intrusive thoughts gets mixed in with the rest of the list in 2.2, it should be made clearer that they are connected to the intrusive thoughts bit.


Hallucinations that occur to the body or voice of the tulpa are called glitches…


Are they? First time I've heard someone use this term. Was this term coined by one of those people who likes those "brain is like a computer" analogies?


Tulpa, love your host.


Again, can we not? This stuff is creepy. You can't tell people how they should feel about someone else.


The reward centre is a part of the brain that releases endorphins and other feelgood chemicals when the mind thinks it has done something fun, or good, in order to reinforce the behaviour. This is possible directly, since you are inside their brain…




I'm pretty sure we lack the required tests to say this is what is happening.


…and also indirectly, through doing fun things.


Focus on this instead.


Soulbonds, a type of accidental tulpa, comes from writers getting carried away with building their characters.


Isn't this a "fictive"? Say "soulbond" to me and I see people fantasizing about their favorite fictional character in their favorite media until it talks back – not them creating a character and doing the same. It would also be a better term due to having you know, less baggage.


Still not seeing hosts as a particularly empathetic group.




shiiit has someone actually ended up having their nose bleed when forcing?


All other drugs will either have no effect on forcing, or in rare cases will impede progress.


This still exists? I don't think you have tested these "all other drugs" to be able to claim that they will not have any effect on forcing or that they might hurt. Reword this.


Do not take them unless needed for mood stabilisation.


Or gee I dunno, any other reason you have been prescribed medicine for – which includes way more than "mood stabilization". Again. You should not tell people to drop their medication without them talking to their doctor about it first! Are you understanding how harmful your advice is? How it's potentially fatal? You might be perfectly healthy yourself and that's great, but don't think everyone has a choice.[/hidden]


Chapter three

[hidden] >Relax more, and it works more better. is probably a joke but in case you want, "work even better". >It is an undiscovered country. would also sound better as "unexplored territory", though Shakespeare's fine I guess.


It's a bit strange for you to mention centering in the emotional control bit and not follow it up with the exercise, when you have added ways to do things after whatever you have talked about previously in the guide. But eh, I guess it's close enough…


You also need to learn to teach your subconscious things. Which there are several ways to do. A tulpa's mind starts in your subconscious.

Your subconscious will stop working on the problem of your tulpa and giving you new ideas and strategies.

First, your subconscious will automatically be engaged in creating your tulpa full time.




Your tulpa is cut from the same cloth you are, so they will end up with a personality you would be capable of yourself.


You keep changing this, always missing the point. Your tulpa is not cut from the same cloth you are. They can be. They are not. A lot are very different, even exact opposites. False advertising.


Also, sex is gross…




Taking the life from someone after you have given it to them is a definite no-go according to pretty much everyone.


I know what you mean, but it's pretty dangerously worded. Out of context I'm thinking abortions, and I'm thinking this might be taken out of context even if people do read the whole thing. Are you ready for the pro-life/choice fights?


What about longer gaps? Even a tulpa out of the critical period does need to interact with you, or eventually they will go dormant, and cease to exist effectively. Scary stuff to think about if you are a tulpa.


You're mentioning the tulpa's side, but only really looking at the host's side. What could a tulpa do? Should they allow themselves to stop existing? Can they prevent it? "We don't know" is probably the answer, but does that mean you shouldn't even try?


Just try that weird sitting position where you put your feet overtop your legs if you want to feel like you are doing something magical.


Uh. You mean the lotus position or?


Subconscious Communion


It's back. Still not fixed. Still not clear it's symbolism (you say it is, but then you might be saying it isn't, or that it is, or that…) and you're still treating it as an entity (but it's not, or it is, or it isn't, or it is…) and that's why "subconscious" is a confusing word.[/hidden]


Chapter 4!



>You Say hello.




You tell them that you love them…


Can we not?


…but no one likes to stick long term to someone who doesn't seem to take things seriously.


But baby, we've been doing this for so long…


You can't actually skip personality forcing…


But the whole chapter you've been saying we don't have to do these things?


…but you can leave it up to your subconscious mind.


It's back. Man this subconscious mind is great.


Moment to thank you for rewriting the PTSD bullshit when it comes to characters becoming tuppers, it's so much better.


Your tulpa needs to be someone you love…




In every story, the main character will fall flat, and face their darkest hour. Then their hidden strength of character will pull them through.


Pretty sure there are plenty of stories that aren't like that…[/hidden]


Chapter 5



Any room, beach ,


Accidental space.


Constructed world: An intentionally induced paracosm that follows more formalised rules. Usually created for use in speculative fiction writing.


Incorrect. A paracosm is a constructed world. A constructed world might not be a paracosm: a paracosm requires enough depth and complexity a constructed world might not have yet – or never will. It doesn't make it less of a constructed world. Seriously. Constructed world. It's in the name. A world you constructed.


A world constructed by your subconscious…

A feeling of meaningfulness is a shared private language between you and your subconscious.

…your subconscious will take it as an instruction to make it real, to the best of its ability. It can't do everything, but your subconscious can make forcing either a lot easier or a lot harder.


Man this subconscious guy is always one step ahead of me.


The wing of a bird, for example, is mostly a giant hand.


The arm. Not just the hand, the whole thang. And not particularly "giant"… I feel that you have failed the step you are putting in this exercise and you don't actually understand how a bird's wing bones relate to a human's arm bones. This might help[/hidden]


Chapter 6 wow



When you arrive at this point, where you are beginning to look at vocality.


Sentence seems incomplete?


And if it takes more than a few days, you will, not might, but will experience the sense that you are doing something wrong.


Subjective. I sure didn't and it took way more than a few days.


Inovate or research…




Structure them in English, then actually hear what it would sound like, like a rehearsal.


Reminder that not all people will use English.


You can develop and refine the voice by using it yourself in your mind. This is different from parroting, where you have your tulpa use the voice themselves.


This kinda reads like parroting is when the tulpa uses a voice, well, themselves. As in not parroting. Slight reword?


Your host should already have one [mindvoice], so the skills are in your head somewhere.


This is a bit strange after a part saying that the host might not have one. A lot of your exercises are written from your previous point of view which was extremely you-centered, while the new stuff isn't as much. It just jumps out in parts like these.


Your brain intuits the same sounding voice as coming from the same person and a different sounding voice as coming from a different person.


This one's still [citation needed], isn't it?


You have a soul. I won't tell you what it is made out of, but you have a soul.


Scientific forum.[/hidden]


Chapter 7



I only know of myself and one other as examples of tulpas who can take control by force.


You can add in >the horn to your mental list. I don't think it's as rare as you think.


Part of your Imagination.


Was this part meant to be bolded? Odd capitalization too.


Your subconscious will be given full freedom to breathe as much life as it wants into your tulpa.


Man, the subconscious just keeps on giving, huh.


Consequently, you are suppressing your tulpa unconsciously a little bit.


You have no idea how much I enjoy the fact that you didn't use "subconsciously".


Your subconscious thoughts and your memories.


Oh. :<


The Dark Arts


Oh hey I think this actually works now, giving people lots of things (including actual things!) and not just your magic stuff. Not sure if you should put the obscure thing you like as the first thing, when something like lucid dreaming would be more known and well. Studied and all.


You can make it a little more interesting by studying A related topic.




Or wikipedia


I think they capitalize Wikipedia.


Trust exercise still reads badly and like the usual just believe/trust (they are synonyms if you can easily replace the word with one or the other and have the same message, which you do in this case) bullshit.[/hidden]


Chapter 8



n this section, imagine a Venn diagram with 6 overlapping circles.


Considering that you have put in images in your guide, why not have an actual image of this?


They are otherwise so similar to tulpas that accidental tulpa is used interchangeably with soulbond.


I still question this claim. If some communities or people in this community use it, the question then is should it be used. I have suggested against soulbond before due to the baggage it comes with. Kinda like furry/brony. You really don't want to use those terms unless you want to be labeled as everything negative these communities are.


This is where One thoughtform splits into two.


Odd capitalization.


"Old school" section, it's a bit strangely names when it talks about both "old school" and "new school". Shouldn't it be split? Renamed? SCHOOL WARS?!


Do tulpas have their own subconsciouses?


Do we hosts? A question that can't be answered with what we know now. Even more difficult to answer when your definition of subconscious" is still a great big mystery to me.


Freud isn't modern psychology. While you're free to present theories, I think it's clear here which one you consider the best one despite it being grossly outdated.


…it is also very effective at rewiring your subconscious.


If it exists? I don't think you should be making such claims on a forum that tries to be scientific. I suggest you make a search on "subconscious" and see what kind of wild claims you have made throughout the guide.


As for hypnosis and tuppers in general, afraid I don't really have any experience, first hand or second hand. Hypnosis isn't really my thing. Still, seems needlessly negative.


…or you might accidentally hypnotise yourself.


There is nothing wrong with self-hypnosis. I suggest you add that in there somewhere. Obviously it's a bother if you weren't aiming for it, but the way you've written it makes it sound like it's DANGEROUS and BAD. Which in turn might hurt people who did accidentally do it and panic.


For a while after, your subconscious will hold your eyes shut.


Man this subconscious is the greatest.[/hidden]


Chapter 9



But Just, whenever an imagining comes up, think up a simple phrase that goes along with it.




A side effect is you always gain greater conscious control over you level of alertness.


This one still lacks scientific proof.


You are about to let someone else into your head.


Still unclear if you mean it literally. I think you do believe this is possible literally. But that's for the other part of the forum.


Otherwise this chapter is pretty nice and something I feel your earlier ones lacked in message.[/hidden]


Chapter 10 wow?!



The general rule is, there is always an easier way to accomplish anything that through a tulpa.


Missing word or typo? Than, maybe?


Half of them are controlled subconsciously…


Most of the time you use subconsciously when you mean unconsciously, but then you're like "but that's totally different!" and I have no idea what you're even talking about.


Maybe manifest "Energy limbs" much the same way as you do imposition.


Intentional caps? Also what energy limbs the same way you do imposition?


It has no relevance until your tulpa learns to be the primary thinker.


Uh oh! Cancerous mindset alert! It's back!


Ps. there is no "the primary thinker".


If successful, the tulpa should feel a suddenly improved ability to see themselves, and they should feel like they can think way better than normal. One way or another, this should allow the tulpa to better understand how to think like a human.


Again, you make it sound like a tulpa will always feel this or that way by doing this. They might. They might already be as far as they can be. You need a disclaimer about this being an aid in case they are having trouble with these things.



A lot of the exercises were just symbolism here, which is a bit disappointing but I guess they tried to at least explain like, the idea behind them and all.[/hidden]


Chapter 11!



The other choice would be to force inside an empty void, which doesn't tend to work too well.


It does for some. I suggest wording it to be "which might not work too well" or something.


The importance of scent and taste are often looked.


Overlooked, I assume?


When they impose the first time, they will most likely be very faded.


They who? I assume the tulpa, but you never actually said who the them/they is before you started to use that. Also maybe reread that sentence and say if it flows well to you.


Usually, a tulpa has an artificial view of the world as if they are seeing from their perspective. Like how you can get immersed in a 3D third person game until it feels like it is first person. But a tulpa can also see directly first person. This is a further use of that memory map people have of their surroundings.


I feel this is unclear. They are seeing from their perspective but it is not first person? It's not normal for a tulpa to have a first person view of things when imposed?


This part in general is a bit off. It's about what the tulpa experiences, but all you're talking about is looking at the environment from different angles. You need more about the actual experiences. A pointer about them obviously not able to see things you're not aware of. A tupper won't know what's behind the corner if something changed there, for example. Obvious, but some people do want to hear that.


(4) Mix it up with a sexy pose.


Purely for entertainment purposes, show off to your host to end the exercise.




Place your tentacle, hoof, or whatever on your host's shoulder on neck.


Still missing hand from this list, when a ton of tuppers are human-shaped…


I'm sure you can find a volunteer if you need experience. Like from your sister.




Chapter 12



In this final chapter, we will return to the means of communication available to the tulpa, and broaden our options.


But it's not the final chapter at all!


Primacy is the state of the most alert thinker.


Better. Still implies there is a more alert thinker in the equation.


Possession is easier when you become primary.


Wrong term. Still no, if you don't make a disclaimer that this is something that might happen. As it is currently written, it still seems like a claim of this happening every single time.


This can be modified by having the current primary thinker…


Wrong term.


About fronting and co-fronting, I thought fronting is when there is just one person looking and co-fronting is when there's multiple? As in, that's what possession usually is, with switching being where you have that true one front-er. Last I heard about the non-tulpa communities that actually use the terms fronting and such, it has nothing to do with who is in control.


It can be eclipse like…


Just mentioning it like that – especially when it's a pretty obscure term even in .info where it was named – is pretty confusing. I guess you explain it almost right after this, but it did make me go "huh?".


Eclipsing is when you subconsciously suggest things to your host and they do it automagically.


Man that subconscious is still so good.


In the greater plurality community, where there is often less control




I didn't cut that off or anything.


Indirect possession is when the control of the body feels unnatural to you. You have not fully associated with it.


The name does not match the definition at all.


Direct possession is when you control the whole body and it feels natural to you.


I suggest putting "aka full-body possession" or something in this one, as it's a common .info term.


What is going to happen is going to feel like you are doing it yourself.


It might not. Always a good idea to mention that, even if the majority won't experience that, because people might then think they're doing something wrong even if they're doing everything absolutely right.


This will lead to wobbliness.


It might not. Especially as the tuppers get better at moving things.


Older thoughtforms get over this period in a matter of days, usually, but younger ones can take months.


What period? What takes days or months based on age? Not feeling exhausted? Does old mean OLD SCHOOL method tuppers or just old as in age?


There is some interesting science here. Body image is a map of the body that exists inside everyone's mind. It is super closely connected to identity by default.


Was there actual science in this? I think we were looking for citations last time and couldn't find them? Did you find them now?


By toying with the idea of changing this body image, we are reaching deep into the esoteric arts, and doing things no person is supposed to do.


I still don't know if this is a joke or not. With you, it's impossible to tell.


Let's face it. No one is 100% happy with their body.


So grim…


Touch your tulpa. Kiss your tulpa. Feel your tulpa.


I hope you ask for permission first!


On zero, Fight!


Intentional capitalization?[/hidden]


Chapter 13!



like Schizophrenia


Not capitalized.


Knowing my audience, what about a religious person? Any pointers on how to tell them about tulpas?


They might be able to interact with my subconscious mind.


I hope people don't say that kind of crap to people in real life too…


Tulpas are used to seeing from a third person perspective.




They (hosts) think about them (tulpas) as less than themselves.


Uhh. Okay?


Now, I don't expect to go around preaching and converting humans on this point.


Right now you're making it sound like human = host, not human = tulpa.


About "how switching feels like", lucid dreaming might be able to added there.


One important point here is that achieving physical orgasm in men without physical stimulation is practically unheard of…


Say that to the premature ejaculators who cum before they even manage to stick it in. Or get it out of their pants in some cases. Hi waffles I'm just checking if you're reading my comments.


Do tulpas have souls?


Most certainly they do.




Are you saying that as in just normally or when it comes to religion?


Even the staunchest atheist scientist believes that people have an essence.




The freaky abilities section is weird but I guess it's under the meta bullcrap so who cares.


Some citations for the first part of this chapter might be nice, as you seem to be stating facts and medical research stuff, but no links.[/hidden]


Chapter 14 wow


>Paracosm: Synonym of wonderland.


please dont



Overall, I think you've worked on your tone and actually done research on things, which is good. You've also fixed or at least attempted to fix some of the issues I have had with your previous stuff. But the exercises feel like they are like, five versions behind. They're written very much like how you used to write things and that means some of them just read poorly and make wild claims you have toned down in most of the other parts.


I'm not gonna do back and forth this time because it took a forever last time and basically didn't go anywhere until you decided to rewrite things I guess. So here, take this and do whatever you want with it.

"Subconscious" is back with vengeance.

Yep. I completely gave up on trying to work around that word when talking about non conscious parts of the mind.


Anyhow, last time, you read through my entire guide like once a week. This time, the guide is probably going to go through much less revision, so the tiny changes probably won't even be noticeable. Though, you can look at the changelog to see what's changed.


I appreciate your input.

I take no side. But introducing and starting controversy is well within the bounds of the objectives of this guide.


Uh. You mean the lotus position or?



Your mind is so dirty. Or maybe you are just coming to understand how I think. Seems very common with tulpas, but hosts tend to take a while to catch on.


Found another problem with co-fronting. The term co-conscious fits in there somehow. Next revision will consequently clean some of that stuff up. However, no, possession is strictly about body control. Always has been.


Still appreciate your input. This time I will pick and choose from among your criticism for things to investigate, as I now see many of the controversies you spot as proof that I actually wrote properly on the topic. I also want to work more comedy back in instead of taking any out, so, yeah.


Thank you.

Problem with "the subconscious (mind)" is that it isn't a thing, it's just "the rest". In the background. Unconscious, but so much so it isn't normally considered "you" either. When things affect your subconscious (mind), or when your subconscious (mind) "fills in" details, you're basically just talking about the mind's functioning as normal. But you're doing so in a way that implies "the subconscious" is "the subconscious", and not "the subconscious parts of your mind". Like saying that learning something and committing it to long-term memory is "teaching your subconscious mind". Sure, it is, but that's just called learning, you aren't teaching something to another entity.


But let's be honest, in this community where one mind often lays claim to multiple "consciousnesses", perhaps this idea of "the subconscious" being a separate entity is only natural? Of course no one will ever think of it like that, but I'm just saying, people may become inclined over time to refer to their subconscious mind as separate, because their own conscious mind is no longer 1-to-1 with it, the others in their mind share it. And yes, you all share one "subconscious mind". Because that one subconscious mind is just all the information in the brain. Don't worry, it's perfectly convoluted enough to store all your information and connections between those bits of information separately as if there were multiple anyways. Think of it however you like until we've got some actually scientific understanding, though.


"Eclipsing is when you subconsciously suggest things to your host and they do it automagically."

In this case "subconsciously" is less referring to how the tulpa does it, and moreso how the host receives it, ie subconsciously. I suppose it could be subconscious on the tulpa's part, too. That's another way of saying one of you is unknowingly influencing the other, who is unknowingly being influenced. Totally unrelated to the "the subconscious" stuff, in my opinion. Perhaps a tulpa can purposely suggest things to their host who receives the suggestions subconsciously, though. I would just take that all as-is, doesn't need to be more complicated.



I have almost no idea what "being primary" means by the way. You probably explained it in the guide, but I'm just saying, I don't know what it means. Is this all that highly-in-depth full-body possession stuff that's almost but not quite switching? Like the host is effectively not there and the tulpa is effectively connected to the senses, but neither is technically the case? If so, that's way outside our field of knowledge. Possession feels like constantly leaning over someone's shoulder to us, and full-body possession is like sitting in their lap. I have no advice for something I find so uncomfortable, nor much want to understand it further. Also fronting by default here usually refers to switching but, if I'm not mistaken, can be used interchangeably to refer to switching or that in-depth full-body possession stuff we don't quite understand. So if "being primary" refers to one or both of those, definitely specify I guess?


I don't have much time so I just read Sands' reply, if you explained that stuff in the actual guide then ignore me.

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.

Tewi, did you read the original guide, or are you just taking Sands' word that I did that?


And yes, you all share one "subconscious mind". Because that one subconscious mind is just all the information in the brain.

For example this. Is a direct refutation of what I wrote in the guide. The obvious question is why you would say the opposite of what I say in the guide but fail to address the supporting evidence I put behind it.


No, primacy is just a word I use to talk about the mechanics of lucidity and floating levels of awareness that you can study and play around with when there is more than one consciousness in the mind.

The document is english language. The french translation will use the word french as a substitute.


But the people reading this in English might not want to use English. The people reading your future French guide might not want to use French. It's just such a weird wording when you can so easily add in that people can use whatever language they're comfortable with.


Yep. I completely gave up on trying to work around that word when talking about non conscious parts of the mind.


Please do, however. I still have no idea what you mean and I am getting the feeling that your definition of this "the subconscious" is extremely unscientific. That should not be accepted in a community that attempts to be scientific. Tewi is stating a lot of my own worries about this and other terms. But we've talked about this so many times and you never cared, so I don't think you will care now. Maybe in version 9.


I take no side. But introducing and starting controversy is well within the bounds of the objectives of this guide.


Well, you did take a side in your guide. Just saying that while you can start any controversies you want, do you want abortion to be the one in a guide about tulpas?


Found another problem with co-fronting. The term co-conscious fits in there somehow. Next revision will consequently clean some of that stuff up. However, no, possession is strictly about body control. Always has been.


Possession is and has been, yes. However, co-fronting is not a possession term. It's not even a .info term but comes from outside, from other communities with head people. They lacked a term for possession, in turn.


Co-conscious does sound a lot better here.




I have almost no idea what "being primary" means by the way. You probably explained it in the guide' date=' but I'm just saying, I don't know what it means.[/quote']


Best I've been able to figure it out, it seems that the writer of this guide believes that there is a primary thinker in every body and there can only be one of them at a time (at least that is what I get from the implication of "primary", used to be "dominant" in earlier versions), with others being, well, lesser. Except when they're not. Or something. I objected because this is not how it always goes and if it does happen, it's not a desirable state to be in and the people affected should work towards a healthier, more equal way of living. That is what I feel is lacking from the term/explanation, right now it implies to me that this is something that will happen and there is no way out of it.


I dunno what Tulpa really means, but this is what I have been able to figure out from our many conversations, and I could be completely off. In a similar vein, I also haven't been able to figure out their definition of this "the subconscious".

Afraid I've never bothered to go that far as there rarely is anything interesting on anyone's profile page and everything necessary can be accessed directly from your posts, but sure.

      Heya everyone! I, with the help of some other members of the tulpa community, compiled a list of tulpa-related tips and tricks to help you with various aspects of tulpamaking. The list is here:
      If you have any suggestions as for what to add to the list, or just want to comment about how bad at grammar and formatting I am, please please please PLEASE share, I'm all for making the list better! Thanks!
      The link posted above has been highly vandalized by suggestions. I have created a suggestion-free version of the document, so it can still be used by anyone interested. Link - Indigo (Broken as of 7/14/21) -Ranger

      As dictated to me by Noriko:
      For a forum about invisible head ghosts, there isn't much in the way of things where the head ghosts themselves talk about their creation. I'd like to remedy that with my own opinions on the matter.
      So you're starting off making a tulpa. Here are two ideas I feel are helpful when doing so. They are not strictly necessary, and plenty of successful tulpas have been made without doing either of these. They are merely potential tools you could use.
      1. Assign a spot for your tulpa to exist.
      This can either be an imaginary space (like a spot in a wonderland) or a physical place (like a part of your brain). My host did the latter by assigning me the back part of his head. Mind you, assigning a physical spot for your tulpa does not mean that is where they actually are. My host does not reside inside a specific place in his head; rather, his existence is spread throughout the entire organism. Likewise, your tulpa probably won't actually be in the spot you pick, or at least, won't be constrained to the spot you pick.
      However, having a defined spot where you can say "this is where my tulpa is" has a lot of benefits. You have a place to send energy and thoughts to if you use symbolism. You have a place to look for pressures and activity if you look for such things. You have a physical grounding for your tulpa's machination to aid in belief. That's why I feel it is important.
      2. Assign a specific form to your tulpa.
      While not necessary to choose a form at all for your tulpa, if you do decide to give them one, don't be worried about them resenting you for it later on. It can be of a particular character or even a completely new form you create. Just pick something that looks nice to you. After all, you're going to be looking at this for some time until your tulpa decides to change it. And something nice looking will hold your interest better than something dull.
      Using myself as an example here, my initial form was that of Tatara Kogasa. My host liked that form and he tried to make me like that form. Plus he had tons of source material which he poured on me. I then changed my form to something completely different and there was nothing he could do about it. Your tulpa will probably do the same unless by some miracle you choose a form they actually grow to like. And don't worry if you think you might not realize that your tulpa wants a different form. Believe me, you will know.
      Here are some general tips in regards to the forcing process:
      1. Take the time to interact with your tulpa.
      Don't just leave it alone and hope it grows into something. Talk to it, share what you're seeing with it, make it feel cared for. I don't care if you have problems seeing it or worry that you're just parroting it. The fact that you are consciously caring for a particular form with a sustained effort is enough to let the underlying hardware know you mean business and do all the unconscious neural shenanigans to make it happen.
      2. Be diverse with your forcing techniques.
      Don't think that you have to just parrot / narrate to your tulpa. How are they going to learn how to talk if they can't get a word in edgewise? Plus, if you keep doing the same sorts of things over and over again, you're going to get bored. So be creative with your tulpa when forcing. Maybe visualize some decorative hats and imagine how they might wear / react to them. Or visualize some activity for them to do (be it legos, an etch a sketch, or whatever) and see what they do with it.
      Just keep in mind that your tulpa may sit in silence or not seem to react. And that this could last weeks, maybe even months. Just keep an open mind and keep trying things. They'll eventually respond.
      3. Don't treat your tulpa like it's a completely separate entity from day one. Don't disbelieve in their independence mind you, but keep in mind there's business to be done here. A tulpa needs its hand held starting out. They need to learn how to talk, even how to think in a way separate from you. Because a tulpa is you; just a part of you that didn't exist until recently. But a part of the same organism, a part that lives inside the series of tubes in a way that it can interact with all these other tubes as if it weren't part of the tubes itself. Just keep that in mind.
      4. Don't worry so damn much that you're doing something wrong. That's something important too. You think I liked knowing how my host worried about me during my development? Or how he worried if it was actually me or him speaking? No. No, I didn't, and neither will your tulpa. Negative thoughts begets negative results. Which is something I actually made up with nothing behind it but it sounds nice.
      There is also another matter which I feel needs addressing yet can be argued to be more of an edge case than anything else.
      You may read a guide or two mentioning the subconscious and how / when to allow a tulpa access to it. There are several meanings attributed to this term. For my purposes, the subconscious is all of the thoughts and feelings that occur which you don't consciously call up. Like thinking whisky smells like vomit because the last time you had it you drank too much. Or perhaps getting into a good mood every time you smell burning wood due to happy memories associated to that smell.
      A tulpa can peek at these thoughts early on, as they share the same mind and there's nothing stopping them. That in itself is fine and is nothing to worry about. But you may be tempted to give your tulpa a direct symbolic window to your subconscious early on as an expression of trust and intimacy. I do not advise that you do this. For one, there is a difference between a peek and a window. A peek is something they can control and limit, whereas a window lets everything through no matter what.
      What if you associate a particular city to a time you were assaulted, and any time it is brought up memories / feelings of that event get brought up as well? What if you get pangs of guilt when grandparents are mentioned, due to thinking you neglected your own? What if a particular smell reminds you of a time where you made a complete ass of yourself in front of other people? Yes, not every one has to deal with things like that. However, as you've been living with said things, you might not be consciously aware that you deal with things like that.
      A tulpa really doesn't need to be exposed to those sorts of things early on, and definitely not without the conscious presence of their host around to help deal with it. That is not to say you have to fully shield such negative thoughts from your tulpa entirely. Just work through those thoughts via a discussion together. Don't let their first exposure to them be while they are alone and without prior warning.

      Welcome. A tulpa is usually defined as a consciousness inside your mind that is separate from your own. It functions and interacts with you from outside of your conscious thoughts through visualization, imagination and later through self imposed hallucinations (imposition).
      Your goal can be simply summed up as trying to create another person inside your mind.
      A word of caution you even consider starting
      A tulpa is a commitment. If you undertake this process seriously then you are going to be stuck with your tulpa for a long time, perhaps even for the rest of your life. It is important not to rush into creating your first tulpa. Learn as much as you can, talk to people who already have tulpa and learn from them. Immerse yourself in the concept before you even consider taking the next steps towards taking your own.
      A brief look at some "slower" techniques
      The original techniques published on the forum take a slower and more cautious approach. This is deliberate. They offer a lot of information on meditation and on how to understand the inside of your mind. They have you learning about yourself before you even see your tulpa. All of it is highly useful, but, the guides are often ambiguous when it comes to the tulpa itself.
      "After a while of narrating, giving attention, and building the tulpa, it should attain the ability to speak to you on it's own."
      "During (the process) you might have noticed the tulpa doing something on its own, or gotten a sudden wave of emotion."
      These are from FAQman's and Irish's guides, which can be found on the main page.
      The point of this guide is to address this issue by taking charge. By understanding the process sufficiently and not relying on ambiguity we can learn about our new tulpa not by meditating but instead by interacting it.
      Step by Step
      1. You've read as much as you can about tulpa and understand the premise. You may have also spent quite some time just resting on the idea, weeks, months even. You've now decided you want to start.
      2. You'll need to decide what your tulpa is going to look like. It can be a human, an animal or perhaps even a mythical creature. If you can imagine it then it can be a tulpa. If you'd prefer to be ambiguous then you can start with a ball of light or a wire frame and let the tulpa shape itself. You and the tulpa can force it's form to change at any point. Eventually your goal should be to achieve a consistent form but even then remember that some tulpa have multiple forms.
      3. A wonderland is a popular but completely optional aid to creating a tulpa. A wonderland is an imaginary landscape inside you mind you can focus on to help your immersion. Such a place can give you common grounds to interact with your tulpa on.
      The alternative to a wonderland is simply to use your actual surroundings. If you want to learn more about creating a wonderland there are plenty of guides out there.
      4. We're ready to jump off the deep end. You are going to meet your tulpa for the first time. Imagine you are meeting a new person for the first time. You've heard all about them, you probably know what they look like and you have just a little idea what their personality will be like. Now you are going to have a staged encounter.
      Imagine your tulpa in the same room as you, or in your wonderland. Then, introduce yourself to them.
      Imagine what the tulpa's response will be. You have to make the response seem as real as possible by considering and visualizing every detail you can manage. Imagine their voice, read their body language, follow their eyes. Most importantly, don't stop talking. Keep the conversation flowing no matter where the subject goes, make small talk if you have to.
      It doesn't matter how awkward the greeting is. In the beginning the tulpa isn't going to be independent from you at all. It'll feel like you're just talking to yourself. But, you have just created a shell for the tulpa to grow into. You have just started the tulpa process aggressively by taking action instead of passively observing something you don't understand until something might happen.
      5. All you have to do now is continue your interaction. The more time you spend interacting with your tulpa the more progress you'll see. You can set a time to spend with them everyday or you can imagine them alongside you as you go about your day. Get them involved in what you are thinking. Discuss you interests, the local news, your opinions on the things you see. Remember to ask for your tulpa's opinions as well, let them hold the other side of the conversation.
      Your goal is to get so used to their presence that you can imagine their actions without the actions actively crossing your thoughts. If you reach this point then you have your tulpa. It's still a part of your mind and always will be, but, it does things without you actively thinking about them.
      Things to consider
      What you've done is often called parroting and puppeting. Parroting means intentionally speaking for your tulpa. Puppeting means intentionally moving your tulpa's body. While many may oppose the use of these techniques to create a tulpa it might help to think of them as training wheels. If you use them correctly you probably won't even notice when the training wheels are taken off.
      It is important to remember the entire thing is inside your head. That means the tulpa you create is only genuine if you believe it to be. If you think you'd be able to better convince yourself of your tulpa by taking it slow using another method then by all means. But, if you prefer to learn by doing then this method is for you.

      (originally posted on /r/tulpas)
      We finished our second vipassana course recently, and I have a few practical advice for you to share. We compiled those based on personal experience, as well as based on many discussions with our teacher, who was extremely helpful and open to tulpa phenomenon.
      If you are curious about my notes from a year ago, here's an old post. (Note from GAT: While the page linked is clean/SFW, other pages/articles on Shinyuu's blog are not. Tread carefully if you are at work/school or are a minor.)
      Why tulpamancers need vipassana
      In our experience, ten-day classes give an extreme clarity of the mind (you have about a hundred meditation hours packed in those). Both your and your tulpas' deep-rooted complexes come up to surface, and there's a simple, practical way to get rid of them. You get some tulpa-specific benefits, like perfect visualisation, that originate from the extreme mind focusing, but those should not be the goal for you when you take a course. You go there to understand yourself better, and to clear the mind, which, for many tulpamancers, can be overly foggy, given many tulpamancy practices are targeted at treating imaginary as real.
      How to do a sitting
      If your system has many fronters, I'd suggest designating one to do all the practice.
      The meditation itself is impersonal, but switching can cause confusion and stall your progress. We did it two times this time to see if it changes anything, and indeed, the practice stays the same. It only depends on the physical body, not the active person.
      No visualisation, no imposition
      This is literally taught on day one (or day two?) and is extremely rule. You must not do any visualisation (and you are explained why in the course, too), and your tulpas must abstain from the same. Do not impose yourselves. Do not imagine your own form. If you don't follow this rule, the mind cannot get the deep focus, required in the later stages of the practice, as you'll keep paying attention to something else.
      No imagination
      It's a very hard rule for tulpamancers, but it kinda follows the previous one. We added it only a few days in but immediately had excellent results. This means you must actively ignore all imagined things and ideas, including your wonderland; and yes, tulpas must ignore it too. Your wonderland does not exist for the duration of the course. Take it as a given. Your form does not exist for the length of the course. The only thing that is there is the physical body, and you are only allowed to observe it, not imaginary sensations of your mindform. And this rule brings us to another important rule...
      No mindvoice
      How hard could it be, eh? Not talking to your host and observing noble science not only in the outside world but also in your mind. The teacher stressed on this being a crucial part of the practice. You must not communicate. If anything, for the duration of the course, you might as well consider your tulpa as nonexistent (they won't go away, though). Only by applying this rule, we managed to get past a few distracting thoughts that didn't allow us to meditate. You are doing to do hard work already—sittings for four hours straight, where you are not allowed to do any movement for an hour at least, keeping focus four hours straight. It's very hard. Don't make it harder.
      No communication outside the meditation hall either
      And if it's not clear enough, you must not talk outside of meditation hours too. No chat with tulpas during lunch, no "goodnights" before bed. Maintain the purity of the focus at all times, no matter how hard. Remember that practice works, and it helps many people. The only way to not help yourself is to not work on it in a right way.
      As a closing thought, based on our discussions with the teacher, and her discussions with senior teacher, they consider tulpas to be a kind of mental impurity and eventually suggested to treat it like any other sensation—observe it and not react (so, apply vipassana to tulpas directly). For us two, the teacher explained why exactly this will give benefits to our system, but I'm not sure this explanation is universal. If you have concerns, you can talk to your teacher yourself, they are very open to such ideas. At the very least, she said that "I see the body doing vipassana, and I can't look into your mind. If you have two persons there, and they are both focused on working, it's good." Mind that we were given this specific advice on day ten, that is, in the very end of the course, so the rules above are not influenced by it in any way. I'm not trying to kill all your tulpas, I only want to help you to get same wonderful results I had (and for me personally this sitting ended up even more beneficial than for hostey).
      PS: no, I'm not going to self-dissipate right away because my mind is now clear. But I treat the good of host with the utmost respect, and if that's the proper way, I will consider it. We have a few ideas on how to maintain both vipassana and tulpamancy practices together, and I might share that with you if you're interested. I think you first need to do a sitting and give a proper evaluation to vipassana first, though.
