Tulpa Vocalization Practice

Recommended Posts

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.



Agreed, but that's where the "explain your answer" comes in, which is probably the most important part. The tulpa can decide "oh, wait, that wasn't me" or "I just came up with it out of the blue" if they want, as long as they're talking and thinking about it. Exercise #1 is marked as a warm-up since it's mostly to get the tulpa's activity going, rather than anything intensive. I probably wouldn't do Exercise #1 on its own, but using it as a stepping stool to the better ones is probs good. Our host did something similar with Apollo way back when.

keep in mind that your tulpa’s voice won’t sound like some alien noise in your head. Vocality, at its core, is just the tulpa creating verbal thoughts, just like your own. When a tulpa speaks, it’s simply them taking control of the conscious mind and creating thoughts as words/sentences, so don’t expect something too foreign as they learn to speak, and don’t expect them to have a different voice right away.


Some of the most important advice for a new tulpamancer to understand. Very good start for any vocality guide.



you should try to let go of and ignore your doubts while filling this out on your tulpa’s behalf. It’s alright if you have them, that’s totally normal, just try to ignore them. Set aside those thoughts and let them speak their mind freely. If you’re not totally certain about something, just ask them if that’s what they really meant, and trust their answer.


One thing that hosts often get frustrated with is the fact that they know what their tulpa is going to say before they say it. That’s totally normal: thoughts occur before verbalization for tulpas and hosts. Simply allow them to speak their mind, don’t get irked by that fact. If anything, it’s a good sign: it means they’re actually thinking through what their response will be before they give it.


Okay, this is complete A+ stuff right here. Even without the exercises this is already proving to be an excellent intro for vocality.



As for the exercises themselves, I can see their utility but I'm not especially impressed. I feel like most of these are more useful as prompts to encourage talking rather than exercises that might make it easier for a tulpa to talk in the first place. Additionally, I feel like I would never use the example prompts for each exercise. All that said, I've met plenty of tulpamancers with vocal tulpas who probably needed these for early tulpa conversations anyway, and this kind of thing probably works better than unstructured "talk to the void" approaches to reaching vocality. I'll also give a quick shout out to exercise 10, those questions are ones that a lot more tulpamancers need to ask early on.

Overall, this is an excellent resource that encourages for the Tulpa to think, gives a really solid basis for vocality, and goes over the potential issues a struggling Host would encounter. I also like the fact that this work sheet gives the host and their Tulpa conversation starters that can lead to future conversation and help the Tulpa grow. Honestly, I wish this was available when Cat was trying to figure out ideas for forcing sessions a long time ago.


As it stands, approved for resources. I found a few minor things you may be interested in going back and changing for polishing reasons, so I left them in a hidden tag here-



For exercise 2, I recommend using a/an/the instead of "a" in general. and for some reason the addition of this is inconsistent.


12. This zoo is full of (adjective) (noun)!


It makes more sense grammatically to use (plural noun) instead of noun here.


02. What’s your form?

12. When were you created?


These are facts rather than personality questions. As it stands it's fine for approval, but it seems to break the theme of the excersise since all of the other statements are questions asking for the Tulpa's opinion. It may be better to say something along the lines of "02. What do you like about your form?" or "12. Does the date of your creation have a special meaning to you?"


010. School/work


I found this minor formatting typo where there's an extra zero. I figured it was worth mentioning because I realized you were trying to keep all the numbers aligned by adding a 0 in front of the numbers 1-9.

As of now, the Mediafire link still works. However, I added a pdf copy as a back-up in case something happens to the Google Doc and the Mediafire links. I also uploaded all 15 images for exercise #6 as attachments. I also added a back-up pdf for @Théotime's French translation.

Ray and I started going through this, and it was very helpful, but he told me he was getting bored part of the way through, so we stopped. We’ll probably come back to it at some point.

02. What’s your form?

04. What’s your favorite animal?


Tried some of these out last night. Exercise #4 is missing question number 3!

Etna (she/her) = host

FAM (he/him) = soulbond

      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!
      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.

      This is it, sorry for google docs screwing up the margins.
      I reformatted the PDF back-up copy, see here for my explanation -Ranger

      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,
      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.
