Conversing with Your Tulpas through Media?

Recommended Posts

Hi! Host here, Lolli; I'm very new to the forums, so I apologize if this has already been addressed, but this question isn't so much about forcing/visualization/dialogue or anything like that so much as the means to express these things. 


I'm an artist and I've doodled and drawn my first tulpa, Ichibod for years, and while Priscilla is young, my visualization of her is very strong now and they are both extremely vocal. Our new system is adjusting and it's fun, but it gets complex because they often talk between each other, or with me, or about general things that I'm not even involved in. I've been trying to think of some kind of way to channel this communication. As a host, I'm comfortable with text, but I know that my tulpas aren't some kind of mechanism for roleplay or anything like that. What I'm seeking is a way to both document some of our conversations, so that I can draw them later as well, but also let them talk more fluidly besides random spurts of words, tulpish, and emotive impressions. I started brainstorming how we could effectively talk in text without it being through some simulated bot in a chatroom or anything like that. 


Has anyone had any experience using a chat service or anything like that to engage with their own tulpas without outside influence? I mean, there's typing into a notepad, but that seems like parroting for them. There's Discord, but I don't know if there's a way to have multiple accounts and use them in a room. I'm not that tech savvy (Icky may be, but he's a little out of the loop about this as well; he's always been socially awkward, lol.) 


I hope I didn't take too much of your time! Thank you so much for reading! We appreciate it :3

You'd really just have to have some sort of chat program that you could be in alone. Opening multiple Discord accounts at once is hard and impractical; there is a Tupperware bot in the Discord server, but conversations between systemmates are disallowed as they just clog the chatrooms. Notepad is simple and works.. but doesn't feel very nice as a chatting program.


I'm not sure if it'd work, but I recommend creating your own Discord server with no one in it and talking there. You'd have to tag your tulpas somehow ("Name: blah"or I suppose), but as long as you don't invite anyone it should stay private. There might even be settings to disable new members viewing history in case someone did get in on accident. Feel free to look into it.


The only way I know how to have more than one account active at once is to use the program (downloaded) and in-browser at the same time. You can try it, but I think that would only allow two of you at once (maybe Incognito window + normal window + desktop program?) and would be a major pain to switch between with any speed (well, alt-tabbing isn't THAT horrible, but slowish).

The tulpa servers have a bot, through which you can make proxy accounts. You mark the post somehow: Special characters (@#$%&{} <> , etc) are often used, or maybe something like "T:", where you'd put T's words after that. The bot automatically takes out the mark, and makes the post appear as if it came from another account. That's how the Discords do it.


I once saw a video of a women with DID, along with two other guys. She played Sorry! with both the guys in the room, along with three of her alters, who would fluently co-front in and out to talk and play. It takes a little practice, but if you can keep from talking over each other with thoughts, you can have conversations via typing. As in, it's not you typing what they say, they type as you hear what they're saying. Once you get in the groove, it's pretty easy. It's just hard to wait your turn.


Basically, I would say, type into a notepad. Get their consent, only write down what they say, and it's not parroting. It's just like recording a conversation, because that's what it is.


The world is far, the world is wide; the man needs someone by his side.

I'm not familiar with Tupperware, but I wonder if it would work with just you and the bot in a server? If so, that'd be the perfect solution. I can't really tell you how to set it up though. Possibly just invite it and do the help command.. however you do both of those things.


Reiterating that in-system conversations are not allowed on the .info server though. Definitely make your own.

I think I've seen that video too.



As Tewi said, most servers don't allow in-system conversation. Making your own private server and inviting the bot would probably work fine, as would typing it up in a document. We've never used a medium in order to communicate, but we have used it to help us focus more on communicating, since if we're typing as we speak then it's harder to lose focus or get distracted.

Setting up Tupperware in your own server is super easy, all that you have to do is make a server, go into a server with Tupperware and use the tul!help command and do what the link tells you to. It takes at most 5 minutes and seems like exactly what you want

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

I routinely have myself and Misha both logged into discord on chrome on my pc. I just switch tabs to go back and fourth. We chat with others this way, together, in private DM. In fact, we can DM eachother and have done that once or twice on a public server. Since it's DM space, there's no mod to tell us that we can't have an in-system conversation. It not any special incognito tab either, it's just, open two tabs of discord web based. Logout in one tab, login with the other account there and both tabs work as intended.

Please understand, it's not us trying to police what you do with your own system, but rather trying to keep the environment in the server inviting and open to discussion. In-system conversations are often massively exclusive and somewhat awkward for others to try and join into.


Now, two systemmates could participate in discussion at the same time. Just, preferably, not at each other. If you've got different things to say, that's fine, but if they're at each other, you should settle them in-mind first. Obviously, there's no reason you shouldn't talk to each other in DMs, because you're not interfering with possible discussion in public, you know?

I'm not arguing that, Dashie and I joke about that now. The point was that you can use DM space to do it, and sometimes it's fun to type out wonderland adventures with full emoji and attachment power. So we've done something like that with two tabs in chrome, with another system in discord. (Not a shared wonderland thing in discord, but it sounds fun.)

      Schlondark on Narration
      “How do I keep talking?”
      The advice given in the two most widely-used guides of tulpa.info are as follows:
      In my wonderland, with my idea in mind, I made the idea of the tulpa into just a blue cloud and basically started narrating to it. I just kept talking to it and talking to it telling it anything I could. I told it about my day, stories, ideas.
      Okay, anyway go about your life. Talk to your tulpa while you're going about your business; say anything really. Some people begin narration right off, and that's fine. I wouldn't personally start until you're done with at least half of the creation steps. A common mistake made here is the parroting of responses. If you're telling your tulpa about how pretty your new shoes are, don't make them say anything back. You know you are done with this step when your tulpa says something back on its own. You'll know, because it will be completely alien.
      Gat-edit note: Parroting can be a legitimate tool for developing a tulpa, but will not be dealt with in this writing outside of this quote.
      The confusion around the issue of narration seems to stem from two separate issues:
      1. What narration is.
      a. Narration is talking to your tulpa as if it is another sentient mind that resides within your own.
      2. How to sustain narration (How do I keep talking? I keep forgetting.)
      a. This appears to be the main issue with narration that troubles members of our community; which I’m going to try to help alleviate.
      Narration is believed to be critical in the development of a tulpa’s consciousness or speaking ability; as well as adding to the ‘your mind makes it real’ factor. These will both obviously come more easily if narration is kept on as constantly as possible.
      Side Note: Don’t be afraid to ramble on you your tulpa about inane or trivial things; quantity seems to be more important than quality.
      The primary method of reminding oneself to narrate is to draw something on one’s palm or to place something on one finger and to remember to narrate each and every time you see it until it becomes second nature or the tulpa speaks to you.
      The method that I used to narrate might not be useful to everyone; but here it is:
      Upon seeing the part of the guide that called for constant narration, I groaned to myself but decided to soldier on. After a quick bout with my inherent procrastination, I decided that this was not something that I was going to skimp on. After a few false starts, I finally got it correct by narrating everything possible whenever possible. I have retroactively named this process “Total conversion” meaning that I accepted it as a part of the tulpaforcing process and integrated it into my lifestyle. For those who are groaning like I was at the beginning – It really isn’t that bad. Just accept it as your duty for your tulpa friend that you are creating and do it with pride.
      It might indeed be beneficial to talk out loud to your tulpa, but I did not feel the need to do so. If you are able to; I would recommend it as it is harder to confuse your parroted reply to a question with your tulpa’s.
      For those not interested in my strategy or still unsure of what to do, I have a few more suggestions/thoughts that may be more appealing:
      1. Force your tulpa a device that can relay narration to it such as a laptop, television, HUD, or other electronic device that would be able to do so. This would be beneficial to those who feel that they must keep their tulpa’s presence in focus at all times feel more secure in knowing that the tulpa will hear them even if their concentration lapses. (If you already have something like this that you use for sense-sharing; I would recommend modifying it for this purpose.)
      2. For those who do not have a strong inner voice: read a book aloud or silently to them. It will be something that the tulpa will enjoy and something that will let you narrate to them with relative ease.
      3. Don’t worry about feeling your tulpa’s presence during narration, they will hear you.
      4. If the methods above still have not helped you, consider sending them external stimuli as narration. For example: If the words in a song you are listening to remind you of your tulpa in some way; sending it to them as it is as a special instance of sense-sharing. (This is particularly helpful in environments in which it is hard to narrate normally, such as the IRC.) The same could also be done for pictures or any other sensation or experience on another sense.
      Parting thoughts: Narration may seem like an insurmountable obstacle, but it is an intrinsic part of creating a tulpa. Even though it may take a while, the reward is well worth the effort. If you approach it as something that you need and want to do in order to create your tulpa or to help it become vocal.

      During narration, it's easy to reach a mental block and become unable to think of what to talk about to your tulpa. This list provides you with many different options for topics to use during narration, conversation, and vocality practice.
      For narrating, talk to your tulpa about anything that interests you. Don't worry about repeating yourself or telling your tulpa something they already know: the content is secondary to the actual act of talking to them consistently. Use this list for inspiration, talk to them as much as you can, and don't stress over whether or not it's the "right" way to narrate. Do what works for you as best as you can and you're good.
      If there's anything this list is missing, feel free to suggest it.
      The list:
      All about you
      All about your tulpa
      Countries/the world
      Current mood/thoughts
      Idols/role models
      Immediate surroundings
      Internet/social media
      Issues important to you
      Life itself
      Personal belongings
      Places you like/want to visit
      Plans for the day/week
      Senses you're currently experiencing
      Something you're looking forward to
      Space/the universe
      The day/week/year so far
      Toys/stuffed animals
      ...and anything else you can think of!

      Hi. I started creating my tulpa, Ciris, yesterday and i have a question about narration.
      When i talk to my tulpa, should i talk to her as if she knows everything i know, or consider her as a new born ?
      For example, should i be like:
      "Hey Ciris, this is my aunt, my mom, my brother and sister.." ?
      Thanks for replying :)

      Hi ,
      Sooo i have been trying to understand this for like 2 days now , I am maybe just retarded right now .
      I understand what is tulpish . Images , sounds , intentions (that is the definition right lol ?)
      Say i want to say in tulpish that i am coming home . I would send an image of me going somewhere and opening a door .
      But how could i possibly say that i am going "home" and most of all that i am going "right now" and i am not sending a fantasy or just a memory.
      I guess it would come from my intentions . And maybe here is the problem , how in the world do i do that ?
      Like when you send your intentions what do you feel ? how do you "generate" them ?
      How do i include them in my message ?
      Like i said it's maybe just simple stupid and i am missing something obvious but i just cant figure this out.

      It's day 2 since I created my tulpa and I have been talking to her for an hour today ( I have been really busy )
      After I talked to her and stopped visualising felt a bit.. woozy? I don't know how to describe it. Woozy is the best word to describe it. I only felt like that for a few minutes but on to the main thing. When I was talking to her I was visualising her and me in our wonderland and seeing her through my point of view and occasionally seeing us both. I talked to her about her personalities and how she had every right to make her own choices about well everything tbh. I asked her a few questions and I tried playing rock paper scissors. I explained the rules but every time we played she would only choose rock. I'm sure I didn't parrot since I only focused on my choices. But I do feel like I was parroting like when I told her a joke and she smiled Or when she laughed I'm certain I was parroting her. How do i stop? And am I doing everything right?
