Tulpa Vocalization Practice


Recommended Posts

This is a digital worksheet that I made with the intent of helping tulpas learn how to speak through practice. Feel free to use whichever parts of the worksheet will be useful to you, and share the results if you like.

 

You can either make a copy of the document to record your tulpa's responses there, record them on a separate doc, or just let them talk without worrying about typing. I'd encourage you to record them, however, if only because it's a nice thing to look back on in the future. If you choose to print this doc, be aware that one of the exercises is mostly hyperlinks, so you will lose information. You should cut out exercises/information you don't need before printing.

 

The worksheet contains 10 exercises, each with 15 examples. The host may feel free to add their own examples as they go along. It is organized from most basic to most advanced. All of the necessary information for understanding the exercises and how to go about using it is in the document.

Break-down/description of each exercise. Feel free to create your own uses for these exercises if you don't want to use the document itself.

 

Spoiler

 

Exercise #1: Warm-Up

This is a simple word association exercise, in which a word is presented and the tulpa responds with their own word, and (optionally) explains why.

Example:

- Host: Green

- Tulpa: Red, I choose red because...

 

Exercise #2: Fill-in-the-blank/Mad-Libs

A noun or adjective is missing from a sentence, and the tulpa is to choose one with an optional elaboration.

Example:

- Host: The (noun) ate a (adjective) pizza

- Tulpa: The dog ate a tasty pizza

- Host: Why did you choose these words?

- Tulpa: Provides explanation

 

Exercise #3: Preference

Two related concepts are presented, and the tulpa will choose which one they prefer and explain why.

Example:

- Host: Snow or rain?

- Tulpa: Snow, because...

 

Exercise #4: Personality Trivia Questions

Simple questions are asked to the tulpa, and the tulpa may explain their answer.

Example:

- Host: What's your favorite color?

- Tulpa: Light blue, because...

 

Exercise #5: Conversation

The host and tulpa chat about some general topic that interests them.

Example:

- The host and tulpa discuss the kind of music they listen to.

 

Exercise #6: Image Describing

An image is shown to the tulpa, and they are meant to describe it, explain how it makes them feel, talk about what they think about it, etc.

Example:

- The host provides a picture of a panda, and the tulpa describes it and explains their reactions to it.

 

Exercise #7: Describe this Character

A concept of a character is presented to the tulpa, and they are to give it a backstory, a conflict, a physical description, or anything else they can think of.

Example:

- The host tells the tulpa to describe "Greg the superhero," and the tulpa goes on to explain what he looks like, what his powers are, and how he helps people.

 

Exercise #8: Continue the Story

The plot synopsis of a story is given, and the tulpa is to continue it using their own imagination/creativity.

Example:

- Host: One day, a mysterious stranger leaves a box at everyone's front door in Jeff's neighborhood.

- Tulpa: Jeff wants to open the box, but he's afraid because...

 

Exercise #9: Monologue

The tulpa finds a topic and then monologues on it without any interruption by the host.

Example:

- The host brings up animals to the tulpa, and the tulpa is allowed to think and speak about animals without interruption, and their mind meanders freely as they do so

 

Exercise #10: Complex Questions

Complex and/or intellectual/philosophical questions are asked to the tulpa to really get them thinking.

Example:

- The host asks the tulpa to give their opinion on the host's current life situation, and the tulpa then thinks and speaks freely on the subject.

I think this little worksheet is a really neat idea. I like that it's easy to use and it can give the host ideas for what to talk about if they can't come up with anything or feel stuck. I wish I could approve this.

10. Do you like your host?

 

Lmfao, I enjoyed that too much.

EDIT: I made this comment before I joined the GAT. This is not my official review.

I'm Ranger, Gray's/Cat_ShadowGriffin's tulpa, and I love hippos! I also like cake and chatting about stuff.

Alice and I started this worksheet today and it's a lot of fun! We like how the answers can be simple, but then asking for an explanation makes them more complex and Alice can say as much as she wants. Some questions were a bit tricky and Alice didn't have an answer but that was ok too.

Nitpicks: excersize 8 #7 & #8 seems much more difficult to make an interesting story out of than the other ones. Also when you say "(credit to J+C for this one)" you should probably change it to JGC since that's their new username.

 

Overall these questions are well thought out and make for a fun way to improve vocality, they are also easy enough to replicate that if someone runs out of a particular type of question then they can easily make them themselves. The use of progressively more difficult and complex questions also allows for this to apply to the most amount of people and ensures that people can always practice at their highest level.

 

Approved for resources.

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

I'd highly recommend these exercises to anyone practicing vocality, especially if you find it hard to think of things to say. I have no criticisms of the exercises.

 

As Breloomancer said, anyone can add their own questions if they want to do more or if they just want to add questions that are personal to them. This is a great resource as it is but it is also highly customizable, which I like.

I'd like to add that if you finish all the exercises and want more, what we did was use the word prompts from exercises #1, #3, and #5, and ask questions like "Can you define or describe [this word]?" "What words or ideas do you associate with [this word]?" "What do you feel/think about [this word]?"

Getting my tulpa to answer those questions has been extra helpful and gives us something to work on when we can't think of a conversation topic.

This resource/guide is highly robust and acts as a McGyver contraption when it comes to vocalization practice. You can mix and match many different subjects with this.

 

My only peev is that the mind will come up with things to fill the void. For instance, Exercise #1 will probably not be efficient when it comes to practicing vocalization, since it can either be the tulpa or the mind itself.

This is the only real issue with the guide - Human nature. The best exercises here are everything beyond exercise #3, in my opinion.

 

Simple, straight forward, and a good go-to when you are out of ideas. Then again, if you run out of ideas, then you may not be thinking outside of the box enough. For tulpas, you have to always be receptive and see the big picture, all while being able to observe the finer things within that picture. Approved.

      So i started development of a tulpa about 2.5 days ago and she's been progressing very rapidly. The first day I spent forcing I came up with a placeholder form and name to help visualize ( I called her Tulp before she chose her own ) and embedded that form with some basic traits i wanted her to be built around and started narateing and parroting her responses. a while later she began to answer me with yes and no. she told me later she knew I would think I was still parroting if she just answered normally so instead since she already knew what i was going to say she interrupted me while i was relaying the thought to her. The next day I tried talking to her more and she started to diversify her vocabulary a bit with words like sure, uh-huh, nope, or nah. Later that day I asked her how she was feeling and she responded with happy. Whenever I ask questions that require more than one word to answer though I feel like i'm definitely parroting because the responses are exactly what I thought she'd say and they don't sound or feel like her. Later that day we talked about what kinda form she wanted and she decided she's 6'2", has black medium length hair, fair skin, a wide mouth and a perky nose. I also asked her what her favorite primary color is and she said yellow. We'll keep working hard and i'll post more updates as they come!
       
      UPDATE
       
      i forgot to mention that i created a mindspace for us that consists of my room and her room ( witch she decorated all b herself! ) and outside is a street and on the other side of that is a park. the street cuts off on both sides and the entire rest of the area is covered in grass as far as the eye can see. Tulip spends a lot of time in the park and also likes to draw things from my memories sometimes.

      I've seen lots of beginning mancers who got their first response from their tulpa, but mentioned that their tulpa couldn't speak with a mindvoice - usually giving an emotional response, or sending a raw, untranslated thought (you know what they're thinking without them saying it "out loud"). I experienced the same at first, and I've found that there are two ways of teaching your tulpa how to speak in their own mindvoice.
       
      The first would be proxying. That is, your tulpa thinks something, and you write/type it out for them. This can be on a forum, on irc, a board, or just on a notepad where you narrate things to your tulpa and write/type their responses.
       
      The second, which is my preferred method, is what I call "Echo Parroting". Many mancers seem to think that parroting is bad, and has negative effects on their tulpa, while actually it can be a great forcing tool.
       
       
      The method is simple: Once you are able to get a response from your tulpa (be it emotional or raw thought), whenever you narrate to them and they give a response, you try your best to translate their emotion/thought into words, and parrot it for them (In their mindvoice, obviously. If you don't know which mindvoice they have/should have, pick one that you both (or just they) find suitable.). At first this takes a little bit of practice, but if you keep repeating this for a short period, it will become a nearly automatic process. You say something, they think of a response, and you parrot it for them in their mindvoice almost subconsciously.
       
      This will probably go on for a while, until they start gaining more independence. When this happens, they will, inevitably, start talking for themselves. However by this point you will probably be so used to parroting them that you will hear what they say in their own mindvoice, and then still parrot it shortly afterwards, creating an echo effect. This will be your cue of when to stop parroting and let them speak for themselves.
       
      I hope this helps, this has worked every time for me so I would be glad if other mancers could put this to good use as well.

      Good day,
       
      Here's a small little thing my host (yes I'm aware I'm using their account) used to do to help us vocalize better, and to have them hear us better. Surely a lot of you have heard the phenomenon of an 'earworm'--when a song in your mind keeps playing on loop. Now, let's say you've got a musician, or a VA in mind. Then play any relevant media of them, and at any moment you'd like and especially the catchy parts or the chorus you stop the song, and let your tulpa autofinish/autocorrect whatever line you interrupted. Now let me just take an example from a game, Mirana from Dota 2. The line is: "Look Sagan, prey!" right? Now, imagine playing it up until, "Look, Sagan--" and you allow your tulpa to finish that sentence. Listen to it a few times first (or not, whatever works) and eventually it should be like second nature. You eventually increase complexity in sentences: "To shadows and to nothing--dissappear!" and eventually longer sentence, different tones of the same sentences... add variety, and eventually there should be another fluent mindvoice like the host's. 
       
      I hope this helps,
       
      -Min
       
      EDIT: The voice links seem to be broken, so I've 'fixed' (mobile formatting is a pain) them. If they break again, you could go to the following link and CTRL+F, or find your own!

      I joined the tulpa community in May of 2012. I worked on my first tulpa, Vinyl, for many months, seldom receiving responses of any kind, although there were several instances of vocal communication and attempts to communicate between us. Nearing the end of the summer, we were nearing the basics of vocal communication but nothing seemed to work, and I was certain I was parroting most responses. Then one night while on the IRC, I made my concerns known to Pronas and Kate who then berated me for not listening to the responses and assuming that this “parroting” was getting in the way of communication and that it wasn’t her. Feeling somewhat dejected, something in me clicked whilst I was sitting at the computer. It seems that I was holding some sort of mental “shield” against her voice, based on expectations of her and basically intended to stop intrusive verbal thoughts from reaching me. I let this shield down, and released any expectations about what was going to happen and what vinyl would be like. I then moved my mind/focus/self/hearing/whathaveyou toward her (placed on the bed behind me) and heard an odd noise not unlike a radio stuck between two stations, like a voice or two mixed with an odd wavering static. This voice was hers and progressed quickly from the static into a semi-stable mindvoice that we have been using to communicate since.
         Tl;DR: it is possible to create a communication bridge with your tulpa and form a basic mindvoice by pretending that you have psychic powers and then utilizing them to read the mind of your tulpa.
         I do not know what the strange noise is or why it occurred; I can only speculate that it is related to the thought-speak gibberish (Tulpish) sometimes heard by hosts from their tulpae.
         
         
         Now for the actual Guide-Part of the Guide:
         1.      Relax, Take a few deep breaths, and clear your mind as much as possible.
         2.      Let go of any fears and/or preconceptions you may have about your tulpa, and open your mind as much as possible. Be prepared to accept your tulpa for whoever it is, whether or not it has turned out exactly as you intended (It has probably deviated at least a bit – Not a bad thing.)
         3.      Position your Tulpa somewhere around you inside your 3d-map of the room you are in. Do this as though you were going to impose your tulpa, but don’t expect to see anything. At this point, it might be a good Idea to explain to your tulpa what you are going to try to do and to encourage them to speak up.
         4.      Feel your presence inside your head and identify it as “you.” Take a minute or two on this; It’ll help differentiate you further from your tulpa.
         5.      Move this presence that you have Identified as yourself towards the tulpa (or as close to it as you can imagine – you shouldn’t physically feel leaving your body – something around the lines of imagining yourself walking through the room behind you; that kind of visualization is fine.) Whilst doing this, prepare and intend to accept any response that you may receive as being your tulpa.
         6.      Somewhere along this miniature mental journey, you should, if successful, hear a strange noise much like I did. This is a thought/vocalization of your tulpa and will eventually evolve into a voice that your tulpa can communicate with you in.
