Will of the Mind - arm wrestle technique question

Recommended Posts

As of now, My tulpa and I have been trying to 'arm wrestle', as in "one tries to lower the arm and the other tries to raise the arm". The problem is, I destroy her all the time unless i'm using about 2% of my power, pretentious, i know. Does anyone know how to increase a Tulpa's control over the body, as in have the tulpa be able to more forcefully control the body?

There could be multiple things going on that could be making this harder for you.


One, it's possible one arm is stronger than the other, or whichever arm is pushing downwards has the advantage, or both. It's possible that this "arm wrestling" isn't evenly matched.


Two, partial body possession is generally harder than full-body possession. The reason why is because the host is more likely to disrupt or take over the possessed body part than they are if the Tulpa has the entire body to themselves.


Usually with partial body possession, I use some symbolism to confirm that I'm in control of the body part and not my host. I imagine the arm filling up with a blue gas / liquid and then test moving the hand.


Practicing this "arm wrestling" more overtime may be helpful, but if she gets too frustrated than go ahead and let her take a break. I personally found partial possession to much easier after I became comfortable with full body possession.

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

I managed to beat Nihi-kun in this arm wrestling thingie, it was a bit of luck, What I did was I intercept his control on his arm and replaced it with mine. We can't beat him by brute forcing it alone so, I just switch the controls hehe And somehow, Nihi-Kun likes that, he likes it when we beat him over his control.

I think you might be looking at it the wrong way anyhow. The point is not for the tulpa to win by wresting control away from you. The point is that for you as host, your job is to be so detached from the physical control that your tulpa can just possess the body and act like themself.


I've been possessing for years & years, physically retraining the body into better shape, and i have the better reaction time for certain physical actions. I "win" your test at things like bursts of speed or yoga manoeuvres but it is still dependent on my host's willing self-displacement. There are still little moments when my host instantly swaps in because he has some hidden knowledge necessary for self-preservation. I'm as competent at physicality as can be, and that's still just my host willing to remain an observer until otherwise becomes absolutely necessary

      Last night I was watching a documentary about people controlling robots and robotic limbs with there mind while wearing a headset. Does this mean a tulpa could possess a robot?

      I read several guides about possession but I still don't know how I can recheck my body once I'm possessed.

      [Bune] I wonder if performing multiple complex tasks at once such as reading and learning in addition to the loss of focus on who you are is connected to Ranger's blending problem with Gray. However, it is possible my experience was influenced by my lack of confidence or Gray being hungry. Has anyone had an experience similar to the following? Does this conclusion make sense?
      When Ranger pulled up his home work, he found out it was on memory. I was triggered awake and I wanted to read the content. As I was reading however, I heard a voice over mine and I felt confused about who I was. I then realized Gray was blending with me and felt discouraged. (Gray was unaware of his chatter until I made note of it.) I couldn't help but think of Ranger: I'm doing something I want to do and Gray interferes unintentionally.
      Gray was disinterested in working. His mind wandered (he desired procrastinating) and he was distracted by the fact he was hungry.
      Since I remember Chrome having better luck with fronting, I woke him up and asked him to help me by reading the content. Chrome told me he wasn't as interested in the material, but he read it anyway. Gray gave him trouble, but Chrome intimidated him a little with a glare and Gray seemed to quiet down after that.
      Chrome continued reading without too much trouble. Curious, I read the passage again and found myself thinking more about me thinking than thinking about the material. However, I experienced a little bit of confusion towards the end, so my coping method wasn't full proof.
      Chrome read the text just to hear his mindvoice reading the text; he wasn't absorbing the information. I wonder if I have more trouble when I don't pay attention to my mindvoice. Does anyone else experience this?

      Daily thread #5, this time posted pretty late.
      (this question is addressed towards tulpas, but ofc hosts are free to respond on behalf of their tulpa(s))
      What was the series of events that led up to you being able to control the physical body? How long did it take? How old were you, as a thoughtform? What went into it? What sort of challenges did you need to overcome, if any? What happened after? And so on. Provide as much detail as you wish, this is for sharing how the road to taking control went for you, and others can see the differences in people's stories and gain any insight that might be gleaned from everyone's experiences.
      (All daily threads are listed here.)

      Sometimes, when I read something on this website, I am left sitting in stunned silence for a while and wondering.  I can understand the appeal of having a tulpa around that is an interesting character, like a pony, or a dragon, or some other adorable and entertaining companion.  I can understand having a tulpa that is captivating or engaging in some way, something unusual that makes life more interesting for you.  I can understand visualizing them, listening to them, and even imposing them so that you can communicate with them and hear them and see them.  I can understand the appeal of wonderlands and wonderland adventures.  
      I understand wanting interesting, humorous and entertaining companionship.  
      My own thoughtform is pretty content to live life primarily within her dreamscape (wonderland) and is only peripherally interested in what is going on in the real world.  
      Here is what I don't understand about some tulpas: long periods of switching and possession in which the tulpa has responsibilities and worries in the real world.  Like the pony tulpa suddenly has to worry about daily chores, and a pay check and dealing with real world issues.  
      Why do tulpamancers want more than one personality in their body, each dealing with all the CRAP life throws at them?  I just don't see the appeal there.  To be honest, serious and sober "adult" tulpas seem boring and unappealing to me.  I wouldn't want some other jerk with issues running my body and having to get things done.  
      I am very curious to see the responses to this thread.  I will probably be a million miles away in world view from those tulpamancers who deliberately create tulpas with that ultimate kind of goal in mind.  I am just wondering what are the reasons going that far with it?
