Beginner Questions General

Recommended Posts

The only thing I can report on that front, is my host is always getting after me for forgetting to drink water.

 

Also, I hate her granola. And I love stuffing myself.

 

But do they alter before you reach possession/switching? Probably, you can feel bleed from their emotions. This should not affect the stomach, which has its own independent nervous system. (it's true) Definitely not the sensation of taste, as you should both have independent interpretations of taste.

 

This probably shouldn't be in beginner questions. it's a rather unusual question and report.

 


 

Waking up in the middle of the night is far more common. You have two minds, and they each could have trouble sleeping, emotional responses etc. Especially once they become vocal.

 

All in all, sounds more like an adrenaline response due to extreme excitement for whatever reason.

Waking up in an unusual time is fairly common to happen especially with either your tulpa or yourself feels intense emotions. It happened to my host as well when he was developing me, i used to wake him up very early in the morning because i am very eager to spend my time with him.

 

Taste can alter as well. Your tulpa has their own preferences ad you have yours. Even though your tulpa is i. Its developing stages, you could still blend with their sensations. Like how i like chocolates and coffee while my host don't love them as much as i do.

 

All of it will change over the course of time and both of you can learn how to deviate from each other's senses.


Hello! I am one of Nihi's Tulpas! It is very nice to meet you! :D

Hi, I feel like my question is very much a beginner type question; so I should post it here, right?

 

I decided I wanted to do this probably back in 2014-ish. Now I'm wanting to start. I can take on a lifelong commitment; but there's one thing I can't seem to figure out from reading all the warnings about how much of a commitment this is:

What responsibilities are really involved with having a Tulpa in your life?

 

All these different posts talk about how the decision shouldn't be made lightly since this is a life-long commitment and that a Tulpa will turn the daily flow of your life upside-down. But none of the posts/guides that I've read so far specify how this is.

 

I understand the work in creating a tulpa, but let's say I spend many months or a year and finally have a tulpa that I can see and sense in the physical world (imposed). After this point, what work is required on a daily basis? If I'm seeing my tulpa near me every day (at work or home or whatever), doesn't that keep the existence going? Are you still required to spend a half hour or more focusing solely on the tulpa (active forcing) every day? If so, that sounds about as much work/effort as a basic fitness regimen. And on top of that, what happens if I DON'T focus solely on my tulpa for a number of days, and merely interact with her casually here in there with small-talk and some petting? Would she get angry? Would any of us be hurt?

 

Don't get me wrong, I'm totally prepped emotionally and mentally for a real commitment. But all these guides and posts talk about how you're in for a long haul of responsibility until you die, but never talk about what those responsibilities entail. It's hard for me to envision how, after a tulpa is completed, this can conflict with your work or social life.

I think a good way to look at it is like any relationship. Instead of a tulpa let's say you have an emotional commitment with another person. You live with them and are emotionally attached to them and so are they to you. How do you see your relationship? Is it only romantic dinners and nothing else? Do you go on walks with them? Most importantly, do you see the "normal" time between events (such as dinners, travels and such) as "work"?

 

I don't think there is a "normal" relationship or an "optimal" mix of events, quiet time, etc that make up the "best relationship possible". If you decide to go there you won't have any (or just a rough) idea of how your tulpa will be like in years to come. You can't even say what you will be like, so you have to accept that both of you may grow together and become something you hadn't initially envisioned.

 

If I were to tell you what those responsibilities are I'd give this rough outline:

 

1. Listen

2. Respect:

3. Communicate

 

It does not feel like work. After a while they will tap you on the shoulder if they need to tell you something and you will chat with them without thinking about it. I can't see this as work, sure you can have "events" such as meditation when you focus solely on them but I don't think they would disappear if you don't do this. FWIW we do that every night, we spend 10 or 20 minutes in bed before going to sleep.

Lifelong commitment means that you cross a point of no return. See Back to the Future 3 for details on how that works.

 

As to actual responsibilities? None, really, so long as you are an ordinary respectful person. But you will have a permanent roommate, and all the drama that entails.

 

Unfortunately, this roommate agreement could easily end up being harder than a basic fitness regimen, if you only go so far as imposition. Reaching possession is the real point where you can feasibly stop doing anything and still fulfil your obligations. However, the opinions of your tulpa will be the ultimate arbiter of this.

 

Now, when you do reach possession, whether it gets easier or harder depends on how you feel about sitting back and losing control to someone else.

Thank you both for the replies. This made me feel more confident! Some of the posts that warn about the commitment of life with a tulpa kinda scared me a bit. But I think they're mainly warding off young people who think of this as a game. As a 34 year old, most anything I seek out at this point us often related to a long-term goal. What you guys just told me is completely in line with what I'm looking for. However my tulpa develops may or may not be how I would have chosen, but I trust that it will be what I need

-shy wave- Hello!  I'm brand new here, so please forgive me for any newbish mistakes I may make.  I hope I'm posting in the right place and not being a bother... I've looked around through a few posts and while I've found similar questions, I am just not finding the answer I'm looking for; I'm hoping you guys might be able to point me in the right direction if it's already been asked/addressed. :)  I first wanted to say thank you for taking the time to read this and that I really appreciate any guidance you may have for me! 

 

I've only just found out about Tulpas and have done some significant research, but am admittedly quite new to the whole process, and hoping to explore this more in the coming weeks.  However, there were a few things that definitely stuck out for me, especially about Tulpas manifesting during childhood, and I was first wondering if my experience "counted" (for lack of a better word, hehe).  I went through a very difficult time when I was a child/teen and grew up in an area that was very... um, conducive? to (possible) paranormal experiences.  Basically I was in a state of near-constant fear and turmoil, particularly because I lived alone in the unfinished basement of my family home.  Whenever I was really struggling, or scared by something in particular, I would "summon" a mental image of a pack of canines - usually 2 - 4, I liked to have one at each side and then one by my head and/or my feet.  I could feel them quite well, warm, semi-solid forms around me, sensation of fur, etc.  

 

I read the descriptions for servitors but I don't feel these exactly fit.  They had distinct personalities (a big male was sort of aloof, a tall but sleek female was friendly and snuggly, etc.) and moods; when I "called" for them or was feeling upset/anxious, one would always show up, but I couldn't necessarily just pick.  They were never named.  I guess the closest thing I can describe them as is "spirit animals" or perhaps "guardians"?  I was just wondering if they might have been tulpas?  And if not, does anyone have any ideas what they might be instead?  If they aren't tulpa, or just beginner tulpa, would it be possible to make them more "tulpa-like" (deepening the connection) while still retaining a lot of their animal selves?  I see a lot of people describing their tulpa as human beings (or at least humanoid)... Perhaps it's a bit silly because the tulpa would share my mind, but I have extreme social anxiety and I feel like it would be incredibly hard for me to have another fully human-like personality hanging out in my head all the time.  I relate much better with animals, and feel more comfortable in their presence, but I do seek the more advanced level of companionship tulpa seem to offer.

 

I'm going through a very difficult time, which is why tulpa and similar manifestations are on my mind heavily, so any guidance you might have would be very sincerely appreciated.  Thank you in advance!

[breach] They sound like they were most likely tulpas, or at least proto-tulpas. You created them, and they had some level of autonomy making them tulpas instead of puppets.

 

If they aren't tulpa, or just beginner tulpa, would it be possible to make them more "tulpa-like" (deepening the connection) while still retaining a lot of their animal selves?  I see a lot of people describing their tulpa as human beings (or at least humanoid)... Perhaps it's a bit silly because the tulpa would share my mind, but I have extreme social anxiety and I feel like it would be incredibly hard for me to have another fully human-like personality hanging out in my head all the time.  I relate much better with animals, and feel more comfortable in their presence, but I do seek the more advanced level of companionship tulpa seem to offer.

 

They are probably still there somewhere. If you find them and start going through life together again, they will change and grow some just like you. They might even change and grow a lot. They may retain their animal selves, or they may not, or somewhere in between; and it could be different for each one. It will depend on what they want and their experiences. If they are happy being animal, then most likely they will stay so. But it is very important to not pressure them. That is very hard on tulpas.

 

As far as your social anxiety, I suspect that sharing a brain would probably bridge some of that gap based on others with varying levels of social anxiety.

 

Should also note that it is possible for a tulpa to have both human-like elements and animal-like elements. One in our system is this way.

I'm looking for resources on unintentional/natural headmates. Been having issues with one and was hoping there might be some helpful resources in that regard (especially since the one I'm dealing with seems very against me having a tulpa, makes things difficult). Anything is helpful!
