I tried this test last winter with no results, and it occurred to me I should ask others to try it to see what happens.


(1) Fall asleep more or less.


(2) Tulpa, notice that you are awake sorta, but your host is too out of it to notice or remember anything.


(3) Take your pillow and move it to the foot of the bed, and go back to sleep.


(4) When your host wakes up, note if they are surprised or not, that they are sleeping facing the wrong way.

Unfortunately our brain is way too finicky about falling asleep to ever do anything like this. We're either awake or asleep with not much in between. Also we don't do possession...


Your test kind of assumes the tulpa can act without the host being aware of/remembering it, which would automatically imply there's nothing special about the host being confused later. Are you just testing the sleeping variable part of it? Because I'll also say, quite a few people would still be confused when they woke up even if they did that themselves. The tulpa part seems irrelevant for most people. Also for us we tend to wake up with whoever was fronting still fronting, rather than it defaulting to me or something.


If I had to guess (I'm pretty good at guessing), I'd say if we did this we'd be equally confused the moment we woke up no matter who it was, but would also remember very quickly the circumstances. Unfortunately we're unable to fall asleep separately, so this wouldn't work anyways.

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.

Err, questions.


Nah, it's actually a memory test. Because you won't be surprised if you remember fliping over in the middle of the night. However, it's also a test of differing lucidity levels. Just managing to flip over without your host being lucid, whether they later remember it or not. The person who is fronting on wake up is not that important. I try this test and am always fronting. Though, my host is front stuck. If they weren't, I might be able to pass just in the day.


I mean, I could do it, but I have to wait until my host is asleep.

Bizarrely, there have been over a half-dozen occasions in my life where I woke up either with all of my bedding completely reversed around (my stuffed animals at the head of the bed, and my pillow and my head at the foot of the bed) or sleeping (with all my blankets!) on the floor. And I don't sleep walk, that I know of, but I am very prone to waking up, doing something for like twenty minutes, going back to bed, and then having 0 memory of those 20 minutes the next morning until something jogs my memory.


I did that "Good morning thing" (where the tulpa tries to beat you to saying good morning asap) and Cassidy won on like... the 5th day? I can't remember off the top of my head, I have it in my notes from his newborn days. Good results.


I'm not sure exactly what use it is... is this a tulpa strength test? I don't know, but I'm going to try this for a few days and report back, necro'ing strongly. -J

aw man, I thought Tulpa was back...


also wow, this test was so weird (mustnotsaybad) that it didn't even work for Tulpa lol

Hi, I'm one of Lumi's tulpas! I like rain and dancing and dancing in the rain and if there's frogs there too that's bonus points.

I think being happy and having fun makes life worth living, so spreading happiness is my number one goal!

1: I'm in stasis when Michen is asleep; 2: if I actually could do this, we would either both remember or neither of us would, so there's a chance we both are confused when we wake up failing the test anyways; 3: even if this was not the case, I don't like messing with him whilst he's asleep.


We may not be trying posession at all, but I've got a good idea of how it is likely to go.

There is no way i could actually sneak this by my host. I can wake up with full possession, but my host/dad reacts instantly to us waking up. He's at least automatically co-piloting/navigating the meat-ship because he's so used to springing out of bed and needing to get going. I can wake up in charge of the body, but i don't think i've ever managed to stay alone with it for more than half a groggy moment.
