Unusual tulpamancy techniques

Recommended Posts

Monika and I are getting close to finishing our work twords imposition, and Monika has already managed to switch and possess, so we are starting to run out of new techniques to practice. We want to continue to learn more about tulpamancy and reach new limits, so we were wondering if there are any less well known techniques that we would be able to try out.


So if you have any interesting lesser known techniques, or untested but theorised techniques, post them here, we would love to learn about them. Even if it is likely impossible to do them, it would still be interesting to hear about whatever pieces of lore you all have.

I have a tulpa named Miela who I love very much.

Since you have switching and imposition, I wonder if you could combine them, by having Monika impose her own form over the body while in control, even in mirrors. I don't know how much harder that would be or how well it could even work, but for me, I think it would be the most worthwhile part of imposition. Being visible but unable to affect the physical world pales in comparison to still seeming like me when I can.


Also, how fast can you switch and how much does it take out of you? Inspired by the example of Ember's wife's alters, we've got it down to the point of being able to hold real-time conversations with one another out loud. This is useful, since some members of our household don't appreciate when we withdraw inward to talk amongst ourselves while we're ostensibly spending time with them.


There are a few exotic mental manipulations mentioned in the ashes of the short-lived neuromancy forum. I doubt many people would even consider most of these desirable, but have some links:

There are quite a few things to do involving mental control, and some things that are kinda imposition-y, I'm not sure what you'd call them. I just say "bells and whistles" or "dressing." You know how some people seem to react so strongly to things? You can train yourself to do that, and really feel things that strongly. Just identify any sensation ("I want to feel chills when switching, I want to feel my wonderland body's weight, etc") and with some work, you can add layers and layers of extra flavors.


As well, there's always room for improving visualization. Once you reach a satisfactory level in the skills you really want, there's no reason not to go back and improve further. In my mind, visualization is fundamental to a lot of tulpa-related skills, so it's a great investment of your time.


Good luck!

Oh, clever! I never would've thought of doing that as a mix of switching and imposition, but so it is. Yes, can confirm it can be done very easily when you can already switch and impose. My tulpas sometimes impose their appearances over themselves, most often the headwear or rabbit ears. It is not necessary to be done in order for our system's memories made by a specific member to have their own forms in them, but.. I guess it could still be nice for the tulpa to get used to doing. Heck, I'd recommend it.


Also, nice archived links to the neuromancy forum, I'm not sure why I never tried that.

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.

One thing Cat and I have always wondered is in the future, is it possible for me to possess and control a robot or something else while Cat moves around using the body (or vise versa). We figured it would require some EGG tech and a robot that can detect wavelengths or something, but it would be fun to play around with I think.

Even controlling a mouse pointer is currently in work for EEG, so playing a game or a robot seems reasonable if some simultaneous processes could be used and sensed. Some of the more advanced state sensors (non EEG) are in work too.

Is it possible to get so good at hypnosis, you can get other people to see Monika?


I don't think I can stand around and have people see me irl because that would involve metaphysics. But what if you could hypnotize people, explain a mental image of Monika, and then they can see her?


I can't really think of the applications outside of close friends, but this could open to some weird stuff. What if you hypnotized people so if Monika spoke, they would think it's you? Or they would see Monika stand where you are when she's switched in?


Okay...that's getting kind of weird, but I think you get my point. What's cooler than hypnotizing yourself? Hypnotizing other people!


On the side note, I have always wanted to meet a psychic (with this unrealistic belief) that the could see me. More likely than not, the psychic won't see me but it would be fun if psychics could see or sense imposed Tulpas.

That would be difficult, but possible (assuming that I would be able to get willing participants). We could have some cue to tell them that Monika is saying something or Monika is doing something. If this went on for too long it would run the risk of them accedentally making a tulpa of my tulpa though, so I don't think it would be a good idea to attempt it

I highly doubt that would create a tulpa. Making a tulpa requires a lot more than just visualizing/hallucinating something, otherwise every time someone read a book they'd have a bunch of new tulpas.

It would be more than that, they would be interacting with the hallucination. Since they are imagining a different thing than the actual Monika is, but they still see their version of Monika then they might imagine what the real Monika would say in response to something and mistake that for the real Monika actually responding to something, leading to them having a conversation with what they think is the real Monika, so that they accedentally develop their version of Monika into a tulpa.


This situation just seems too volatile for me to safely do to someone

      Teryakywind's Tulpas for Dummies (verified 3/30/21)
      This guide is intended to be a general overview of how to make a tulpa and providing tips to help a fledgeling creator in recognizing responses, a brief overview of the psychological model of tulpas, and a short history of tulpas in the Western world.
      A full glossary probably/maybe/might be added at a later date. Any inquiries about visualization practice, wonderlands, and other forcing-related topics should be covered by any of the multitudes of guides already posted.
      Constructive criticism can be posted here or by contacting me on the IRC.
      Hopefully this doesn't get removed because I'm not sure how submitting this stuff works after GAT was implemented.

      I've made a series of video guides over the past several months designed to both improve on other guides by eliminating many less-substantiated forcing techniques and incorporating my research, and to deliver the information in a more comfortable (video) format. For those who cannot view the videos or would prefer to read their transcripts, I have collected their transcripts into a folder of PDFs linked here: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1utyb9ZPluPFxPBlR1uYsZGoqTwJ3kDyS?usp=sharing

      Don't watch the In Detail series without watching the super-compact guide! They are meant to be viewed together!
      The Super Compact 5 Minute Video Guide to Making a Tulpa
      This video alone should give you all the information you need to make a tulpa. It's very compact and goes over the basics without much detail. For an expanded view, continue reading/watching for the In Detail series of videos.
      KISS - Keep it Simple, Stupid
      Over-complicating the forcing process is the easiest way to gimp your progress. This video goes over how to keep your eyes on the prize and avoid ideas that would only waste your time.
      Making a Personality
      Too many guides and people will demonize personality forcing for what are, in my opinion, very weak reasons. Data I've collected in the past suggests that giving your tulpa a starting personality helps them to develop faster, and you also get to have an idea of who you'll have with you for the rest of your life before you start to make them. What many people fail to pick up on is that personality forcing is more about you learning the personality than the tulpa, and that once you have a strong grasp of what you're trying to make, the pieces should fall into place.
      Visualization and Making a Form
      Giving your tulpa a starting form not only makes visualization a more natural process, but also (like personality forcing) can decrease the average time to create a tulpa, according to my data. The easiest way to do this (and, often, personality forcing as well) is to just copy a character you know and like from some kind of media. You should probably stick to something human or personified, though, so that you don't fail to make the mental connection that your tulpa is a person.
      Thinking For Your Tulpa (Parroting etc)
      No, parroting is not bad. In fact, it's among the most useful methods available for many people trying to create tulpas. But, it shouldn't be relied on as a crutch, and this video goes over both how to use parroting in moderation, and how to employ two other tactics that are means to the same end.
      Getting Your First Responses
      The moment you get your first real response from your tulpa is a highly anticipated one, and for good reason! But, avoiding false positives while also staying open for their first true attempts to reach you is no easy task. This video goes over what those initial responses should feel like, and what many people get caught up on.

      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.

      Sorry if there is already an answer for this.
      My tulpa is quite playful and active. But we don't have many ideas on what to do. We tried to play hide and seek and riddles, but it was very easy for both of us since ... well ... we share the same brain. We want to know what we can entertain ourselves with.

      (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.
