Need Help - Tulpas Have Been overtaken by Walk-In - Do not know what to do

Recommended Posts

You give far too much power to your imagination by believing in everything it throws at you. None of this can "actually happen" if you truly don't want it to. But by feeding intrusive thoughts (of any kind) by fully believing in, focusing on, and worrying about them, you reinforce them both to yourself and as an unconscious habit that'll just keep popping up.


The golden rule of all intrusive thoughts, thoughtforms, or any other problems stemming from imagination - if you ignore them, do not give them attention or attribute significance to them, they will go away. Fighting them does not work. Playing their game of feeding your imagination and reaffirming that it's all totally real and important and needs to be dealt with - that just reinforces intrusive thoughts in your mind as a whole, regardless of whether you feel like you're "beating them" or not. Ignoring them and attributing no legitimacy to them is the only thing that stops them.


You can still have tulpas while employing this method, but it'll take a little restructuring of how you're probably used to interacting with/imagining them for wonderlanding or similar activities. When intrusive thoughtforms or other thoughts show up, you simply say "Nope, don't want or care about that" and stop giving it attention. And most people who struggle with these sorts of problems do subconsciously want to give them attention, to give legitimacy to intrusive thoughts, to say "No, it's definitely not under my control! Look, it still happens even though I don't want it to!"


Unless you've actually got schizophrenia, these are just excuses, to serve the part of humans' brains that likes drama. People often subconsciously want drama and "bad" things to keep happening. But if you really don't, you need to stop legitimizing the thoughts and experiences by putting so much stock into them. It may be "un-fun", but it's the only way to permanently win against intrusive thoughts/thoughtforms. Any sort of "fighting" (or "defending" or most kinds of symbolism) is placebo and still inviting more intrusive experiences in the future.


I wish you guys luck in sorting your mind out.

Hi. I'm one of Luminesce's tulpas. Unlike the others, I don't think I stand out too much from him personality wise.

I'm just special because "I'm a tulpa". So I don't think I've much to offer, here. I'm happy enough to just be with him.

All I can say is what Flandre already said. None of this is "real", and you ultimately have control over these things in your imagination. Believing you don't have control is the only way you won't.


Unless you actually do have schizophrenia. If you're hounded by mental goings-on consistently over time, you should consider seeing a psychiatrist and possibly finding a medication to help deal with invasive thoughts.


But if you think you're mentally healthy, then it's just a matter of exerting your innate control over your mind, imagination, and beliefs. Stop believing these things are just going to happen, stop believing you can't do anything about them - that's really all there is to it in a healthy brain. If you can't do this and your mental goings-on remain chaotic, then seek professional help, as there's most likely nothing we can do on this forum to help you.

Hi! I'm Lumi, host of Reisen, Tewi, Flandre and Lucilyn.

Everyone deserves to love and be loved. It's human nature.

My tulpas and I have a Q&A thread, which was the first (and largest) of its kind. Feel free to ask us stuff.

If you want to walk away from your tulpas to spend more time taking care of yourself, that's okay. You have accumulated a lot of stress and fear trying to sort this out, and I think it would be better for you and your system if you think stepping away is the best choice. If you want to keep them around and sort something out, that's okay too. Please do not feel like you can't make this choice. You have the ability to not talk to them and stop thinking about them by refusing to think about them for long enough.

No matter what I do, there always seems to be problems all the time with my tulpas, and I feel as if I am ready to let go of them. I have let gone of them several times, but now from since the start of this October, I have completely misunderstood my tulpas worries and now I do not know if these upcoming explained occurances are my original tulpas. These characters always seem to grab out at past tulpas and say - they are mine now. I keep protecting the same past tulpas, but at the same time it seems completely pointless to do so because they always end up being taken.


A tulpa can't take "ownership" of another tulpa and magically make them disappear. The original tulpas you have are safe.


If any other tulpas get "taken", do not create more tulpas. I am concerned you will create more tulpas than you can handle, especially because I remember you struggling with the idea of having 2 tulpas. Instead of creating another tulpa, focus on trying to call out to the ones that are still around.

The reason this all fell apart? Sex. Sex, mistrust, rape, no guidance.

Rape came from the male side because I was worried they would mistreat the female side. 

Then there is also violence. Violence stemmed from my tulpas kinda pushinig a suicidal message on my character, Lon. I did always tell them to let go, so maybe my messages to them were perversed in a way...


There isn't any advice I can give on the sexual insecurity other than it seems to be something that's related to a more complicated and deeper personal context. My feeling is your headmates re-enacting your insecurities are a sign you have something unresolved and need therapy for.


As for the suicidal messaging- dissipation is a tricky task because of how easy it is to wrap on in guilt or fear and create more stress and anxiety from it. I really like this guide because it walks though dissipation in a really gentle way and addresses guilt, shame, and fear so it is easier to move on.

Now I have a walk-in problem. It knows dismantling, it stemmed from sex and always misuses topical engagements. It doessn't know how my emotions work (I'm stoic, Capricorn and slightly Asperger) and it keeps taunting me about everything I do. It is now just the one character, and I do not even know the walk-in's name... so it feels completely like the time to let go.

My tulpas body has been taken control of by a unknown force or presence. I do not know it's name, it's idendity, nor it's real nature. It doesn't tend to do destruction or such of the matter, but more or less doesn't want me or my tulpas exonerating it. My tulpas body has lost control, and the one in control is someone we've fought, or I've only fought- for several days. Is there any way I could recover my tulpas presence, or is it lost entirely? 


On 10/7/2020 at 7:01 PM, SuruTheTwentySecond said:

I feel like I need to move on from them, but not like this where I feel a complete hostile character encroach on their and mine spaces.

Should I attempt understanding this person, or should I skip him and attempt recovery? Mind that it doesn't recover, should I attempt continuing trying to talk with my tulpas?


This sounds very similar to what we struggled with in the past, something we refer to as an "intrusive thoughtform". Assuming this is a similar experience, we came up with some tips and tricks for how to deal with these.


For fairness, I should mention our approach to this has been criticized because it gives too much thought to an intrusive thought, which is essentially what this is. However, the end goal is to ignore it, but we had to take some extra steps to achieve that. With this situation, we have found "just ignore it" by itself doesn't really work because these intrusive thoughts go out of their way to engage with you for attention and sometimes lead to scary things like a tulpa feeling they have lost control of themslf. That's difficult to ignore.


I want to clarify that a lot of what Flandre already said also applies here, only I want to give more context for what we think all of this means and how to apply what she said. I want to break down what this situation might look like so there are no surprises, how to ignore it, and have the tools you need to manage this.


From our experience, an intrusive thoughtform is like a walk-in but has a different way of seeking attention- by bullying, harassing, or putting others in unreasonable and extreme situations. Unlike a normal intrusive thought such as a disturbing scene, these seem sentient and don't automatically go away when you want them too.


These things often use fear tactics to try and put themselves in a position where they have "control" over you. Pretending to be another tulpa and say horrible things, kidnapping and holding tulpas hostage, saying they have some rand evil plan, etc. The goal of these fear tactics is to get you engaged, feed it attention, and trick you into not dissipating it. Once you realize it's just a petty tactic for it to keep stressing you out and hold a fake sense of power over you, you're ready to get rid of these.


Don't feel bad about dissipating an intrusive thoughtform. We have a couple headmates were originally intrusive thoughts, but it was like building a tulpa on a sour core. Eventually, our headmates matured to the point of rejecting the intrusive nature they didn't like and/or got in the way of being able to function normally. Ultimately, you're better off making a new tulpa instead of trying to force an intrusive thought into one, and this intrusive thought isn't a tulpa to begin with.


There are two general situations- one where an intrusive thought exists separately from everyone else and another that seems to "take over" another tulpa. The second situation is essentially smoke and mirrors, but the problem we found is when you try to call for the original tulpa, you end up summoning the intrusive thought instead of the tulpa. This may or may not apply to the hostage situation as well. You have to kill off or wait out the intrusive before you can call your tulpa again.


Intrusive thoughtforms are temporary. It can't exist after not being spoken to for too long, that's why it goes out of its way to engage with you. We found that intrusive thoughts will disappear by the next day, but not before causing a huge stink of trouble.


So that's the ins and outs of what we experienced. I want to let you know all of this because being able to label this and knowing how it will behave in advance is something we found to be reassuring. Knowing that it's just fear mongering for attention and it can't handle being separated from engagement for too long is half the battle.



The first step we take is isolate the intrusive thought in a safe space. Regardless of if it's a corrupted tulpa or not, we found it relieving to put them in a wonderland room where you know it can't hurt itself (one of the things we struggled with is the intrusive imagery of it hurting itself because it made us feel guilty). Being separated in its own space means it can't mess with anyone else.


The second step is just playing the waiting game. Walk away from it, and leave it alone and let it fade away in the back of your mind. It may lash out, try to get your attention, lie, freak out that its dying, or say it has some secret plan outside of your awareness. The reality is its a whole bunch of excuses for you to talk to it. Don't talk to it, let it die off. The actual dying off process usually takes anywhere from 3-20 minutes, you're probably going to be bored. Thinking about something else, playing a game, reminding yourself things are fine and things will get better, etc. all help.


After that, it's gone. You will be able to talk to your tulpa(s) again. They may feel stressed, scared, or feel guilty. Remember that anything an intrusive thoughtform did wasn't actually them and anything it did wasn't anybody's fault.


Don't worry about having another encounter. If it happens again, just get rid of it. These are more likely to pop up as a result of extreme stress. The more experience you have with dealing with these things, the easier it gets, the faster it will die off, and the less frequent these encounters will become to the point of not happening anymore.

Aforementioned "bad tulpa"/ walk-in keeps building up non-sentient beings to follow him and do things his/hers way.


I want to briefly explain non-sentient beings in the mind. These are called "servitors" and are typically created to carry out a specific task. Typically these are symbols to visualize an abstract concept or feeling. For example, you could visualize a scale for how tired you feel.


Some servitors are used to mimic sentience or carry out fronting. Only in one case have I seen a servitor that controls the body behave as it should, and even then it sounded more like glorified autopilot. In every other case I have seen, these were either NPCs or tulpas. I suspect this because a lot of servitors would "go rouge" and show signs of sentience.


I wouldn't worry about these or even bother to keep track of these if you don't want them. They are easy to forget about if you don't think they're important.


4 hours ago, SuruTheTwentySecond said:

They use their building as a way of making either making friends, or use it to block me from making inner desicions.


A few things here:


1) A fresh walk-in is too weak to stand on its own without forcing or puppeting. As long as you don't want these "extras", they will cease to exist when you choose to ignore them. Walk-in creation in of itself won't create system overpopulation if you deny the walk-ins time and attention.


2) I'm not sure what an inner decision is, I would like clarification on this. I would like to give my thoughts and you tell me if I have the right idea or not.


I'm wondering if by "inner decision" you mean these characters can think outside of your awareness. This concept is called parallel processing.


I'm a large skeptic of parallel processing, and I recently learned true parallel processing would only be possible through intense training. Since these characters appeared out of the blue more or less, they do not have the ability to think outside of your awareness. Instead, what is likely happening is confabulation and making assumptions. Wonderlanding and memory recall are very similar experiences in the mind, so it is easy to confuse the two. This makes things tricky because a tulpa isn't lying when they experience something- they experienced it on the spot rather than in the past. However, given the intrusive nature of these characters, threats they make or recounts of the horrible things they did are going to be lies.


4 hours ago, SuruTheTwentySecond said:

They have tried making one called "the Mind", which is nerve-racking to say the least because they try to manipulate it.


Servitors are limited in what they can or can't do. At best, it's like biofeedback.


You're not going to be deleted or turned off just because there's a delete button in the mind. Symbolism can report what's going on in the mind, but it can't kill brain cells or change your blood flow magically. An imaginary kill switch is an empty threat.


4 hours ago, SuruTheTwentySecond said:

I woke up with a fighting dream that segwayed into this being cutting me up. Did not see tulpas, so this being is probably the only one left.


Dreams are seperate from what you do in the mind with your tulpas. I'm sorry you had a scary nightmare, but the good news is a nightmare is not going to change how the inner world operates or hurt any tulpas.


If you have tulpas or other thoughtforms disappearing, it could simply be because they're too weak to stand on their own and they naturally dissipated. If this happens, I think this is for the best. If there are any tulpas strong enough to stand on their own, they won't disappear forever. Worst case scenario, I think you're better off starting from scratch with one tulpa after you have had a long break from tulpamancy.


4 hours ago, SuruTheTwentySecond said:

Should I give up? Communication with tulpas is difficult. Moving on would feel awful at this point, but I'll try to atleast do a couple of things for them.


Dissipating the bad actors and focusing on yourself is not giving up. This is a hard choice to make, and doing this to move forward is a sign of strength.


If your other tulpas are strong enough to stand on their own, there isn't a time pressure. Tulpas are for life, and most of the time people can revive tulpas months or even years later and they're okay.


I really hope you can reach out to a therapist or someone to talk to. You have a lot of trouble with anxiety and nightmares, and seeing someone can help you heal. While tulpamancy can be helpful in stressful times, oftentimes it is not enough and other times it's a big distraction from the big picture.

Thank you, Ranger.


As for 


2) I'm not sure what an inner decision is, I would like clarification on this. I would like to give my thoughts and you tell me if I have the right idea or not.


I'm wondering if by "inner decision" you mean these characters can think outside of your awareness.

It's life making a descions by vocally saying it on the outside instead of thinking on it or meditating on it. I sometimes have a harder time registering my entities decisions, or need more time understanding the decision. On the inside, these entities had a habit of lying of fabricating stories to servitors or figments so that I would be pressured, to reiterate that idea. My tulpa does come back to help me, but I believe it is either only one or two that come back. The others seem antaganistic, and I do not know why because I deny taking any sort of guidance or use of them. They just started being this way through constant, normalized thinking while being depressed. They can't seem to escape from the notion that they need to ignore my thinking, but understand my dialogue with them and the peace that I want.


My decision is to ignore them. After some hard times, and some fights, these entities have taken to harming my body, badmouthing me, or thinking that they do. I think my tulpas may have left me with servitors that don't completely understand who or what they are. That is what they keep saying, "they don't know themselves, or understand where or who they are.

I want to make sure I understand- the difference between an inner decision and an outer decision is you speaking to yourself with your mindvoice and you verbalizing your thoughts out loud to yourself.


I wanted additional clarification because I was confused by the first part of this sentence:



It's life making a descions by vocally saying it on the outside [...]


I'm assuming you're saying you are making life decisions, not that life itself as an external force is thinking for you.

I doubt these are anything more than intrusive thoughts. Even walk-ins, baby tulpas, will be agreeable or at least be willing to negotiate. Intrusive thoughts are resistant to guidance, love, or support, and that doesn't change unless you build a new tulpa using the intrusive thought as the base (which I don't recommend doing, you're better off making a new tulpa from scratch).


Depressed headmates may lash out or try to isolate themselves, but they are lashing out because they can't help it, not because they have a hostile intent.

They probably don't do anything given they have no purpose. I'm assuming they would be just as functional as a wonderland tree at best.



I think you're on the right path. Good luck, I hope things get easier from here.

Good update


Everything is fine now, at the very least calm.


I'll let them update on it themselves:

Hey there tulpa community, how are you? 

Severe trauma has been here,

Be a guide, not a host.


I like to add to not try to force yourself when a sexual anomoly or lash out, otherwise intense force may be had. Everything this night is calm, and I think everything will be better for future prospects.


I'll be back with more.

      I had written this note for those who find themselves struggling with procrastination or general lack of motivation when it comes to active forcing and 'mancing practices in general. Not sure what section this should go under, but I myself wouldn't consider it to be a guide hence why I named it the way I did. Critique on this piece is very welcome! I suspect I might've written it with a slightly too confident of an attitude. Same for grammar. I kinda suck at constructing fluently sounding sentences and using commas, haha.

      Meditation (Second Revision)
      To begin with I would like to say that I am not an experienced "tulpamancer" like a lot of you but I have been lurking and using all the guides here and I wanted to give something back.
      I have been Meditating for years now. I have a BSc in psychology and I studied for 6 months under a monk in Bangkok Thailand who is very renowned for his techniques in meditation and I have taught many people and now I would like to share what I learned but only the points that I think useful to a "tulpamancer".
      I have been using my techniques for the creation of my tulpa and the immersion into my wonderland has become a lot stronger than I even thought possible in only 3 days. I'm now at a point where it feels like I'm in a lucid dream and here is how I did it:
      Now most of you probably think you know a thing or two about Meditative posture and I'm sure you do but re-learning basics always helps refresh your mind and remember whats important.
      Now I see many meditative beginners slouching and hunching:

      To be honest through much hard work you could still achieve some altered states of consciousnesses in this posture but why make it harder for yourself?
      I won't bore you with yoga like instructions but here are the basics:
      Never let your back out of it's natural curve. Always keep your pelvis higher than your knees The body must be in alignment Relax!!!  

      I'm not asking you to be in full lotus but following the 3 keys you could even meditate in a normal dining chair as long as you don't lean on the back. For meditation on the floor (Recommended) a Zafu or meditation cushion or anything to bring your pelvis above your knees but sitting directly onto the floor will leave you in agony within a short amount of time.
      Now for some reason this doesn't always occur to everybody but the biggest tip I can give to anybody is relax. In order to meditate more effectively you need to forget about your physical body and focus internally and the only way to do that is to relax!
      You all probably know this technique but here it is once again:
      Begin by being in our posture and working your way up, starting with your toes just allow gravity to take a hold of them and let the tension naturally fall away. Moving onto your feet and legs you're looking for those tiny bits of tension in your body. With the correct posture as previously outlined your body won't slouch your head can balance perfectly on your shoulders without falling forwards and your back can remain straight.
      With the back straight and the body aligned your breathing will naturally fall very shallow allowing you to ignore it along with your physical body.
      State of Mind
      There are so many states of consciousness that can be reached through meditation and hundreds of texts attempting to describe them. Personally I always think their descriptions missing something and so have decided it's a very personal experience.
      Let's get back to "tulpaforcing". As I have previously stated I am not a very experienced "tulpamancer" but, having lurked on this forum for sometime I have established that the most important factor in "tulpaforcing" is concentration. The key to concentrating inwards (meditation) is giving the mind the freedom to let go of physical stimuli through posturing (for comfort and staying awake) and relaxing the body.
      Do you find stray thoughts popping up? Make sure there is no tension in your body by working your way from your toes to your scalp just like before, allowing gravity to take hold and refocusing on your intent (your tulpa). Stray thoughts are normal (even if they're in the background), always bring your focus back to your tulpa, try not to get frustrated (remember to relax even your mind).
      With everything in this guide you will be able to visualize stronger (the fact that your physical body can mentally stop existing, you can become immersed into your visualization, into your own wonderland). It makes you focus harder and it becomes easier to concentrate making the hard work of "tulpamancing" just that little bit easier and without having to become a meditation master.
      Please don't hesitate to ask any questions.

    • By reguile
      If you are resorting to a guide with a title such as this than you are probably pretty familiar with the entire process of creating a tulpa. You know about how to make a personality, you know what forcing is, you know how to put yourself in a wonderland with relative ease. You have found that despite all this knowledge, despite hours of forcing, despite reading every scrap of information you can find, you really honestly aren't sure what to expect from a tulpa.
      Alien feelings? A person whispering into your ear while you cross the street? The feeling of a walkie talkie? Some threads speak of tulpa as if they are simply other people, yet other threads speak of them as if there is hardly a distinguishing factor between the tulpa and the host. So what gives? When is it that you really do have something that you can confidently state is a tulpa? When are you or aren't you parroting?
      Some who have tried to create a tulpa seem to do incredibly well with it. They are out talking about how talkative their tulpa is in the first week! Some take less than a few hours! It's obvious that you, the troubled reader of this guide, must be doing something horribly wrong, right? No.
      Like all human efforts and questions, some things will just "click" for some people. Be it from prior experience, natural disposition, or just plain old peer pressure, some people hit the track running. You probably hit the track going about twenty miles an hour and with a broken leg. There is nothing wrong with that. In fact, you can end up doing much better in the long run because of the foundation you are forced to build.
      Not all tulpa through the community have voices that are even close to consistently alien/foreign feeling. Even some of the people who have been at this for quite a while have been known to have moments of doubt. The process of creating a tulpa is not something that is just accomplished through an hour of forcing. Outside of certain “breakthrough” moments that drive you to new prospects, progress in the field of tulpa is incredibly gradual. Even If you may not be noticing any improvement, it is almost definitely there in some form. What you will get out of tulpa will be exactly what you put in combined with your own natural affinity, nothing more, nothing less.
      The only thing you really can do at a stage like this is to just keep at the process that got you here. Do not shut down or shut out that little voice in your head. Cater to that voice. Humor it. Clearly, as you are wondering if some of your thoughts are those of your tulpa, something is going right. Continue to force, continue to develop the personality of your tulpa, continue to work on trying to think of your tulpa throughout the day. All of these things build and reinforce the idea in your head that a thought no longer is a simple, one dimensional thought. Instead, you create the idea that there is some identity, some personality, some tulpa, that can be doing the “thinking”. The stronger that identity, the easier and more often thoughts will be assigned to it.
      What you are experiencing is the beginning of your ability to recognize and order a thought as being the thoughts of your tulpa rather than yourself. More often than not that thought will feel like its origin lies with you rather than a tulpa. That is absolutely normal and expected. For now, you are very likely bad at the process of ordering thoughts, and you are are almost definitely going to continue to screw up along the way.
      You may find it helpful to spend some time just trying to recognize your own thought processes as you go throughout the day. It is amazing sometimes how quickly the mind can work, and if you pay a little more attention you may start to notice that you tend to think about two to five sentences worth of thoughts across the course of one normal language-based thought.
      Learning to pay attention to this level of thinking is very helpful when dealing with doubt issues such as this. I wouldn’t so much recommend to attempt to endlessly be in control of every thought you make. However, being able to pay attention to that level of thought is often very good for assessing and realizing what trains of thought or mindsets lead to you feeling like your tulpa isn’t exactly not-you. Those trains of thought can be avoided while forcing for the sake of fostering progress, and then examined later on when you are not trying to actually communicate.
      Overall you should expect that as you force the voice will become stronger. Along the line, there will be doubts. It is likely that you will never find a point at which you never have doubts of if what you heard was you or your tulpa. That is normal, that is expected. However, as time slowly passes, the doubts become less. You probably won't notice it at all after any single day, but you may just find that one day things “click” and it really feels like you are talking to a voice in your head.
      You may even go so far as to call it a tulpa.
    • By Couguhl
      A common problem of early tulpa creation is a lack of focus on the part of the host. This may be because he/she may have an attention deficit disorder, are overly-creative (not always a negative thing), or for other reasons not specified. Nonetheless, this guide describes how you can increase your focus and synchronicity with your tulpa(s) through the magic of classical conditioning. [This isn't really so much a guide as it is tips, but I'm sure some of you may find it helpful.]
      So before we start the method, you need to know how it works.
      This method uses Classical Conditioning, which is essentially reinforcing a reaction based on an unrelated stimulus that has been associated with it. For example - Ivan Pavlov, the Russian physiologist who developed this idea, would ring a bell and feed some meat to his dogs. The meat would make the dogs salivate. After a while, the dogs would begin to salivate once the bell had been rung, even if there were no meat in sight. They had been conditioned to salivate every time the bell rang.
      You can do this with your mind as well.
      Now what this method is attempting to accomplish is to associate your tulpa with whatever stimulus you choose. Hopefully, if you can associate your tulpa with that stimulus, then you can use that stimulus to bring your tulpa vividly back to mind whenever you are having trouble concentrating.
      For example, when I first began tulpa forcing, I would burn incense. Since smell is strongly associated with memory (and because I burned it every time), I began to get 'in the zone' every time I burned incense. Now whenever I smell it (even though I don't use it anymore), I vividly remember my tulpa and it brings back a lot of memories. So what you can do is burn a scented candle, incense, or whatever you find most effective.
      If smells aren't your thing (I'm looking at you, anosmiacs), then you could try taste. One day several months ago, I was sitting down with my tulpa having a conversation while eating chips and salsa. Since then, every time I ate chips and salsa I would start talking to my tulpa, and now she automatically comes to mind whenever I taste Picante.
      These are simply examples of course, and you can use any sort of stimulus that you desire. If you can do this, then all you have to do is reintroduce that stimulus when you are lacking focus.
      That's basically all there is to it. If you have any suggestions, feedback, or criticism then post away.

      Due to a while's struggle with having my own tulpa think separately from myself, we felt the need to come up with ways to help her think for herself. These are methods that can be done both passively and actively, and good for times in which you need to work in short times or when sitting down to force is not an available option.
      Method 1
      The first is simple and easy. Simply lay out a number of items (preferably between 10-20 of them) before you. These can be cards, dominoes, or any other small item you can find. Ensure that you can see all of them at once while staring directly at the middle of the objects. The objects should be spread out to an extent, preferably not overlapping. It is important not to count how many you are laying out, as this negates the process entirely.
      Now that the objects are before you, stare in to the center of them and explain to your tulpa what is going on. Ask them to count the unknown number of objects before you and then give you the number. Do not participate in the counting alongside them, simply stare and clear your mind. If you find yourself unable to clear your mind, occupy it with something simple such as spelling, reciting a poem, or simple math. Leave your mind open enough to hear your tulpa's response.
      Try not to move your eyes from the center in order to allow focus to be given to your tulpa. Rely on them to count and give them a minute or so to do so. After they let you know they are finish or decide that their time is up, ask them how many objects their were and then count them yourself. It is optional to keep track of how close they are to accuracy each time to track growth. With this method, I find that my own tulpa generally gets it right 4/5 times with almost no previous abilities to parallel process.
      An alternative to this method is to lay out a random number of objects on one side, then placing a divider beside the objects, and laying out a different number of objects on the other side of the divider. Then , as you count the amount of objects on the left side, you must rely on the tulpa to count the amount of objects on the right side. For more of a challenge, set a time limit of your comfort and gradually attempt to work down to lesser amounts of time to count the objects.
      Method 2
      This method is better for times in which you don't have as much time to spare, you're constantly moving and having to divert your focus, or there are no objects at your disposal. It shares close similarity with the first method.
      Look around you for a word, preferably one with several letters, though do not count the letters yourself. If you're in class, look at the posters, if you're outside, look at the signs. If there are no words around you, use a random word generator such as this one: http://www.wordgenerator.net/random-word-generator.php
      After you have the word, simply ask your tulpa how many letters are in the word and then count them for yourself. The tulpa shouldn't require as much time to count as they would with the objects in method 1. Ask them to report the number of letters back to you and then count them yourself. This can also turn in to a back and forth game by telling your tulpa a word, having them tell you the amount of letters in it, and then having them tell you a word, and having you tell them the number of letters in it.
      If you're finding it difficult to keep your mind busy as they count the letters in whichever word, you can use the option of giving yourself and your tulpa a word and each of you having to count the number of letters in the word. This allows your tulpa to think for itself while your own mind is busied.

      I find this to be more of a basic tip for tulpamancer with tulpas still in the earlier stages. It requires small amounts of vocalization, allowing younger, more quiet tulpae to participate and help their parallel processing skills to grow as well as older tulpas suffering from the same issue. The methods have proved very effective for us, and I hope the same shows with other tulpamancers.
      The way in which these tactics assist the tulpa is simple. It forces the mind of the tulpa to work on its own, without any input from yours. Due to your conscious mind being busied with something else, it requires the tulpa to use your subconscious thoughts and to form their own thoughts on what is happening. It is a simple method to build up the parallel processing of the tulpa before they move on to more complicated tests and tricks. By forcing the tulpa to think for themselves when counting, they no longer feed off of the conscious mind.
