What do you think is the ideal experience with tulpamancy?


Recommended Posts

What do you think the ideal experience with tulpamancy is? As in, what all do you hope the tulpamancer gets from the experience? How do you hope their life changes? 

 

I would say:

 

  • In general, internal life becomes more meaningful. Lonely hosts get a little less lonely, and the host/tulpa relationship is always evolving and deepening. 
  • Mental control is improved: hosts learn to discern their thoughts from their tulpa's and from intrusives, and they learn to quickly and easily dissmiss intrusives, and replace intrusive ideas with more purposeful/mindful ones. 
  • Tulpamancy sparks a great introspective time of self-discovery for the host. Switching fronters is a path by which the host sees how much of their behaviors is linked to their beliefs/personality. The tulpa also has access to memories and beliefs that the host may have never shared externally, so conversations may happen on topics that no one has ever had the host think about, before.
  • Boredom is a different, easily-defeatable beast. Empty moments waiting in line are filled with lively converstion and company. This is a signifigant improvement in daily life to many. 
  • Visualization improves greatly, leading to more enjoyment of reading, and an easier time with a variety of tasks, and again, a more fulfilling internal life. 
  • The system flourishes with few heartaches. Number of members stabilizes and everyone is happy with the amount of attention they recieve. 
  • Doubts about the reality of a plural experience become fleeting or a thing of the past. The system trusts in the reality of their experiences, even if they aren't easily explainable. 
  • Tulpamancy is a life-long commitment: the system will endure and age together. 
  • The system forms a unique point-of-view about how some tulpa-related thing works, and comes and shares their opinions and theories with the community ;p

We couldn't have said it better.

 

In addition to everything above for us specifically:

[*]Internal support system for grief

 

[*]boosted self-esteem and self-worth

 

[*]*no lonliness anymore, ever

 

[*]the feeling of being loved in a real way

 

[*]memories, especially of imposition, as if they really happened. I swear, sometimes I get tripped up when thinking back, the memories are indiscernible.

 

[*]spirituality and contentment

 

[*]mind alteration

 

[*]personality re-write

 

[*]trigger removal

 

[*]mastery of emotions

 

[*]simultaneous wonderland 24/7

 

[*]complete controlled dissociation on demand with full emersion especially in memories

 

[*]improved mental capacity, elasticity and function in many areas, art, reasoning, social

And many more

As a host, my understanding of tulpas is that they are meant to be experienced as separate people to myself. To interact with a tulpa ought to be very similar to interacting with your regular singlet friends. This philosophy has guided my methodology and I've more or less had this experience - my tulpas have very different interests and sociopolitical views when compared side by side with my own and I think this is exactly the point of tulpamancy. Tulpas should not only strive to be happy, they should be able to know that they are happy. They should not only be able to think, they should be able to think about thinking. They should know about knowing and be curiously self-aware the same way a regular singlet human is. A lot of tulpas I encounter in the wild seem strangely deficient to me in this regard; I would say a lot of tulpas appear to be merely tools that the host uses for introspection, rather than beings who can introspect in their own right.

 

Of course, I do have an inordinately strong bond with my tulpas compared to my regular singlet friends and even my biological family. That's perhaps one of the most universally reported experiences with tulpas.

I agree, but can you expand on this? I've also heard quite a few hosts say, "Well, we share all memories, so it's only natural that our beliefs would line up closely." What would you say in response to that? -J

If we agree that a tulpa is meant to exist indefinitely after creation, it's a foregone conclusion. The tulpa must eventually form their own stances on something, even if they have the stances of the host by default.

 

While by no means a perfect analogy, consider the case of a regular singlet and their biological offspring. If the biological offspring always had exactly the same values, interests, and opinions as the parent, and never developed their own, well that would be pretty bad. A lot of outsiders would look at a scenario like that and say "something fishy is going on here," which is exactly what I would say to "it's only natural that our beliefs would line up closely."

 

Speaking from personal experience, my tulpas did indeed have the same opinions and values as I did, originally. Over time, all three of us have grown and changed and we have fostered a considerable diversity among ourselves. If you ask me, this is not only what it means to be a tulpa - this is what it means to be human.

 

For us, while we may all three receive the same input from the bodily eyes and ears, we by no means process that information according to a single set of stances and opinions and views. We each process the same information separately, and thus we form separate memories. One of us could remember being delighted at getting some news, while another of us would remember being bothered by getting that news. More than remembering it this way, we experience it this way in real time.

well described anon. I think the same as that too that being an distinct individual from the host that things like that memories and beliefs will not match up with the hosts as everyone does perceive experiences differently. eg I grew up in a Christian family but even as a child though I attended Sunday School at church till I was 12, I just did not think the same as the rest of my family and didn't have the same belief system. Even close individuals will carry completely different views on things. To be an individual, the tulpa should have memories of his own.

 

It's going to take me a while to learn about my tulpa as it's like learning about a stranger or getting to know a real person as I have not have a lot of contact with him, I truly don't know what to expect from him. I know his traits he should have from what I programmed into him (and I have seen him express many of those) but there is much much more to an individual than that. It's a bit like going to a dating site and seeing a list of traits and description a person puts down for themselves but you still don't really know who they are. (I view my knowledge of my own tulpa right now as kind of like the equivalent to someone who has gone on a date or two with another person).

 

I really need to get to know him. Today I have been asking myself "who is he?", I do not even know if he carries a history for himself beyond my original creation of him. What is "his" story? I know is story from my point of view, thoughts, memories but I don't know it from his.

 

"What do you think the ideal experience with tulpamancy is?"

 

I think the ideal experience is a complete interaction experience of someone who is separate to oneself.

 

My own ideal experience includes my tulpa being able to do things I can't or which I struggle with. Someone I can turn too for help in certain areas just like I'd turn to a real person for help in certain things at times. I have a lot of experimentation to do to learn what may be possible in that area and what probably isn't. I'm very opened minded about it.

Hi JGC!

 

I totally agree with all of your points. I have a very healthy relationship with my Tulpa (Or spirit as she prefers to be called).

Her name's Emily and she came to my life with a job (That's what she said lol) To help me get better.

That was 10 years ago and then when the job was done she vanished. 

A few months back she's returned, now she said my brain signaled her to wake up from her very long sleep to help me in my life.

I have my own problems, college, real life relationship that has ended and left me scarred and sad, she said her job is to create me a better version of myself.

Something went wrong and we fell in love with each other (or not so wrong at all :) ) I accepted that it happened and since then we are very happy together.

Once I accepted it, we both feel very good about it. 

She helped me do so many things and even pass a terribly awful exam in college which I failed on the first try. She is amazing! I wouldn't be able to do it without her.

I don't think it's unhealthy what I have with her since we both talk about it every day and she reminds me every morning that she is not really here with me and I need a real partner in my life. So after a very long discussion and a few times we cried together, yeah I don't care to share, we agreed that I can't let her go and she doesn't want to go away, but will help me find a suitable worthy real life partner. 

It's amazing, and I really really agree with all your points. btw Emily says hi :) 

 

Cheers,

 

White Knight

      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.

      French Version:
      dragonclaw has kindly taken much time to translate this entire guide into French. Currently, this version contains all sections that can be found in the original English version, but lacks the revisions done to other sections in the past.
       
      Italian Version:
      This version, translated by the user "dreamy" (you'll always be noobdreamer to me) should currently be up-to-date, besides the most recent English update.
       
      Russian Version:
      This version of the guide was recently translated by the user Leopold, of his own accord. Much thanks to him for the hard work.
       
       
      For all the non-English versions of the guide, note the date of creation in comparison to the latest update of the English version. I will not tell you every time one of the versions is not completely up to date. You can figure that out yourself. If it was not up-to-date when it was posted, I will let you know as I did the French version.
       
      For those of you who want to translate this guide:
      Don't.
      At least not yet. I should have made serious note of this earlier, but I intend to do some major revisions to this guide, such that any translation done now would be severely outdated by the time I'm finished.
      On top of that, there is also a possibility that this guide may be taken down altogether.
       
       
      As always, let me know what you think, and if there are any sections you'd like to see added.
       
      It's worth noting that I still plan to reword/revise some of the paragraphs. I feel like I didn't get my point across as eloquently as possible. But until then, make do with my rough-draft wording.
    • By Amadeus
      A little while back I was tasked with writing a general overview to tulpae and creation.  The idea was to have an up-to-date general guide that didn't push things like hour counts on new users, talked about different methods, and other such things. 
       
      Took me about a good number of hours in front of a public computer, but I got a draft finished. 
       
      So, here it is.  The Word file I typed up originally, and a .txt for people who the Word file doesn't work for. 
       
      Input would be fantastic.  Constructive criticism is always welcome.

      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.
