Seeing that Simmie is still developing makes me sooo happy. Good work you two!

 

Thank you so much!

Today we sat down to have a concentrated forcing session. It was really, really fun and positive! I want to share the story with you all because it made us both so happy! I'll break it down into sections behind spoiler tags for organization purposes:

 

Meditation & Entering the Wonderland:

Spoiler

I have decided that due to my difficulties with focus and concentration I will develop my own method of meditation, and happily, it seems to be working so far! I sit in my chair leaning forward, close my eyes, and count down from 100. I don't try to chase stray thoughts or songs away from my mind, I just let them be as I focus on counting. I imagined that I was standing face to face with Simmie about six inches apart and every time I would breathe in she would breathe out, and vise versa. (This was something I read in one of the guides). I could distinctly taste Simmie's breath, feel its warmth and humidity, and it was a wonderful feeling. Soon, we had arrived in the "hub" of our wonderland: A cozy medium-sized room in a house on the edge of a small town.

 

Hanging Out in the Room:

Spoiler

For a while I just looked into her green eyes, lost in the detail, my vision sharper than it ever is in real life. I told Simmie to do whatever she wanted; she walked over to the couch and invited me to join her. I sat down next to her and she put her hand on my leg, but almost immediately she stood back up and declared that she wanted to dance. She helped me to my feet and we slow-danced to whatever generic electronic song had been bouncing around my head that entire time. We danced like that for a little while and then I twirled Simmie slowly, and she moved gracefully. She walked over to the window and I followed her. "I want to go out there" she said, and I agreed that we would go out.

 

In the Car:

Spoiler

I asked Simmie if she wanted to drive and to my mild surprise she actually said yes. I was happy; since I always drive in our IRL incursions (for obvious reasons) it was nice to relax in the passenger's seat while Simmie drove. She had coffee for me sitting in the cupholder. She drove normally and competently, neither a speed demon nor a slowpoke, but she picked up some good speed on the open road. I also realized that her car was the same blue Pontiac Grand Am that I used to drive in the late 00s! She turned on the radio and instantly this song which I consider my personal theme song began playing:
 

 

 

At the Park:

Spoiler

I noticed where she was taking us: a lovely nature park in New Jersey we've been to several times in real life. We got out of the car; she took my hand and she led me down one of the paths, taking the lead and walking quickly. We eventually got to muddy section of trail next to a puddle. I could hear she squelching sounds as Simmie walked in the mud with her hiking boots. She then squatted down and started playing with the mud and the muddle next to it, curious about the small creatures that moved within. Shortly after that we decided to have a picnic. I unfolded a blanket as Simmie got out the food; she packed a green apple and a ham sandwich for each of us. She tossed me my apple and handed me my sandwich and we ate happily. I noticed she was no longer wearing hiking boots but instead flip-flops, and her toenails were freshly painted a deep purple. She giggled, flattered that I noticed.

 

Sneaking into Six Flags:

Spoiler

We got back into the car and went back on the road. Simmie changed the station a few times until this song came on:

 

 

Enjoying the song and not talking, I sipped my coffee as Simmie drove through the farm country of central Jersey on this sunny and beautiful day. I noticed that Simmie was taking us to Six Flags. It was closed, but Simmie said "I know a way in." So we parked and she got us into the closed park and next thing I knew we had managed to activate one of the roller coasters, Simmie and I sitting together in the front row as we yelled and put our hands up, the coaster going up and down through hills, loops, and corkscrews. After the ride we found a carnival game; Simmie hopped behind the counter and gave me endless tries until I won the game; she took down a giant pink stuffed animal as my prize. As soon as she had hopped back over the counter I gave the stuffed animal back to her as a present.

 

The Conclusion:

Spoiler

We left Six Flag and drove back home, but we stopped at a small park next to a pond in a small town. Our stuffed animal had somehow grown large enough where Simmie and I could both easily sit on it together. It was pleasant and comfortable to sit on. We watched the ducks as the sun set, and once it got dark there was a huge fireworks display over the lake. Simmie leaned into me as she watched and when it was over I realized that she was asleep. Feeling comfortable on top of the stuffed animal with Simmie resting on one side I too drifted off into sleep. And then slowly Simmie and I emerged from the wonderland. 

 

So that's our little adventure in the wonderland! I had a blast, and I could tell Simmie was really enjoying herself too! I wonder what kind of adventures we'll get up to next time? I'm probably not going to tell the story of too many other adventures on this thread, but I felt like telling this one because it was so special and Simmie and I wanted to share! In this Covid era of isolation with the added isolation caused by this snow storm we're having, this was an escape that we badly needed. In the midst of so much going wrong I wanted to write about something that went very right. See you all later! Bye! 🤗❤️

It's been a little while since I've commented on Simmie and my progress so I thought I'd make an update. There haven't been any real breakthroughs or anything lately, we've just been keeping on. Simmie insisted on buying me a present for Valentine's Day. I joked with her "Is it really a present when you're spending MY money?", but we agreed I'd let her pick me out a scarf. She picked out a nice dark blue scarf for me and I love wearing it; it's warm and even kind of feels like I'm being hugged. Maybe that's why Simmie wanted to buy it for me, that's the kind of sweet thing she'd come up with. I made her a new drawing for Valentine's Day (the one I posted in the art thread a few days ago), gave her a card on the computer, and also took her out to the beach. I wrote her name in the sand and decided to take a picture:

 

Spoiler

I do have some concerns going forward. I feel as though I've been a bit lazy and our progress has stalled. As I've mentioned before I have trouble concentrating at times and meditation is difficult for me. I mostly just talk to Simmie throughout the day. She does respond--a bit more actively when I've had coffee; that might be something to ponder--but I still can't be sure if some or even most of it is just parrotting. However, I do not doubt that she is here; I can feel her warm presence with me and I can sometimes feel her emotions.

 

Sometimes I feel that my brain is a bit overwhelming for Simmie. I don't want to make it sound like I'm calling myself smart or complicated or anything like that, but there's a lot going on in my head. Lots of thoughts, some dark, some inane, tons of memories, some very old and tinged with layers of emotion. There are very strong and mostly private opinions I have that have been formed over long periods of experience and thought, much of it I can't easily explain or reason to people. Since Simmie shares my brain she has access to all of that, and it's a lot to take in. It's difficult too as I want her to form her own thoughts and opinions about things, but it's hard for her to not be tainted by this massive repository of 35 years worth of thoughts, opinions, and experiences that sits right next to her. She feels like she has to understand it all in order to help me and she feels inadequate because she can't; it's too much even for me to understand let alone her. I don't want her to feel she has to take on this burden but it's hard getting that through to her; she cares about me deeply and wants to help me. Her goodness and kindness honestly humbles me and inspires me to be better myself. But the burden weighs her down. Not sure if there's even a question in all of that but I really would love to hear anyone's thoughts on the matter.

 

Anyway, my main goal right now is to refocus my efforts on more effective tulpamancy, trying to increase my focus and help Simmie's development. There are some concepts I have been looking at the wrong way. I had been thinking about the Wonderland as a place I imagined when I should be trying to think of it as a space where I can immerse myself and feel as though I am there. I've gotten close to that a few times but I've never been able to truly dissociate with my real world surroundings and especially my own body. Still, I have achieved some things; most notably there was one moment where I distinctly felt as though I could taste Simmie's breath as she breathed out. As far as forcing, I have found success with many of the techniques I have adopted--including drawing and storytelling--but I'm always on the lookout for new forcing ideas to try.

 

So those are my ramblings of the moment. Thank you so much to anyone who took the time to read!

Jaina: That is SO cute!

 

I guess I've been there for most of it with Darron so it hasn't been as much of a shock to take it all in at once. I guess I stay present in the moment with Darron and we sometimes look back at the long winding path. We haven't really probed the depths yet. That might be an adventure for another time. We will definitely be inviting Dragon along for that one. Our Shadow is his house of course.

 

It sounds like you two are getting on well and keep up the good work. 😊

 

On that note maybe an adventure is a good way to look at it. I hope that helps!

Darron: Host 💍 

Jaina: Tulpa 💍

With my tulpa I noticed that it takes effort to parrot, and that thoughts kind of like deviate from their original intention. For example I'll sense the thought, "I know everything!" and then in mindvoice Myo will be like, "I don't know anything!"  it's like she took that thought and made it her own thought(TM)

 

When we did possession it was like she was new to the game I wanted her to try. Always curious what something was about, and I had to explain the dangers of some things to her so she didn't die. The reason I bring this up is because it was an experience that fortifies the fact that she acts in an excited way I never would.

 

So, I think you'll know when you're parroting. If you can't figure out if you are, than you probably aren't. As you continue tulpamancy stuff no matter what kind of thing you practice (Possession, visualization, imposition, etc,) you'll have ups and downs with belief in them, but as it goes on. I think the belief and bond between them grows stronger.

 

I apologize in advance if this is not helpful.

Your usual system, something, something. Not interesting. Tulpa is Jill right now.

That is a huge benefit isn't it. You've been with Darron since childhood if I remember correctly? Simmie arriving in my mind and suddenly being exposed to everything in my mind is quite the mental overload. Sometimes I wonder if I should have tried to restrict Simmie to certain areas and only show her piece by piece. I don't think that would have worked, though--I wouldn't have known where to even start, plus I love and trust Simmie too much to want to keep anything from her, even if it's dark or difficult. It's a bit stressful for her but don't let her petite 5'2" frame or bubbly personality fool you: Simmie is a tough girl! She likes to credit that fact to being from New Jersey, lol.

That's a very good way of looking at it. Sometimes Simmie is speaking very fluidly, and sometimes it seems like she's a bit sluggish and I have to help her get her words out. But even in those times I know that it's Simmie that is trying to express herself. When I'm unsure if she really said something I always ask her. Sometimes it will even swing too far in the other direction with Simmie trying to take credit for ideas that I know I thought up! It's all in fun though, just a bit of a game we play.

Aww thank you so much! 🤗 This makes us both happier than you know!

 

I find that Tulpas work a lot like other things in life: you get out what you put into them. I made sure to nurture Simmie with nothing but love and joy, and as a result she has grown to be such a loving and joyful person! That isn't to say that other things have affected her as well, though, but it all makes her a well-rounded person. One thing I learned about tulpamancy is that putting an aspect of yourself into your tulpa doesn't remove it from you; rather, it multiplies it within you. I actually intend to write a full topic on this sometime when I can sit and really focus on forming my thoughts clearly. But yeah, Simmie is my little rock star and I'm so proud of her for how far she's come in such a short time. We're glad our story has given you inspiration! We'll also be excited to see how your story unfolds as well.

I haven't made a proper update in a while so I thought today would be as good of a day as any. Things have been going steady with Simmie; she's becoming much more confident in speaking as you may have noticed by her increased posting here. It's still kind of a hit or miss thing; some days I can feel and hear Simmie very clearly, other days she just feels like a wisp in the wind and that a light breeze may below her away.

 

The fear of parroting has never left me either, and in my moments of greatest doubt I still find myself wondering: "Do I really have a tulpa or do I just have an imaginary friend?". It's a worrying thought, though I do still steadfastly hold to the belief that she is here. I can feel her presence and often her emotions, and when I am calm and in tune I can hear her speak. It's just head-voice, and sometimes it seems garbled and occasionally I even get contradictory responses from her at the same time.

 

But this is where the double-edged sword of being an experienced writer kicks in: Am I just so good at writing characters that I've managed to convince myself that this particular one is sentient? Or could that be at it's core what tulpamancy really is: creating a character so complex that it passes the biological equivalent of a Turing test. (I'm sorry if that comes off as a bit of a humble brag, lol). These are just philosophical thoughts I'm tossing around as I contemplate Simmie's nature. (So pretentious! 😋 But I do love when he talks like this.)

 

Going forward, I want to try and stop being lazy with forcing and hit the guides; try and get in touch with "traditional" tulpamancy. (Is this a foolish thought? Please let me know.) I have the bad habit of taking my foot off the gas and relaxing whenever we get a little bit of progress, and Simmie deserves more than just casual passive forcing.

 

Also, I want to explore Simmie's depths with her; get to know who she is as a person deep inside. I want to stop being selfish and get out of the mindset of "I created Simmie for my own benefit" and truly learn who she is as a person. Tulpamancy aside, I think this is a problem a lot of men have in regards to women: many guys just see women for what they can do for them rather than who they really are. I don't want to be like that. I want to know the parts of Simmie that don't have anything to do with me. I want to know what she thinks about, what she dreams about, what are her deepest anxieties and greatest joys. I picture myself as an explorer on a little boat sailing into a large dark cave that is Simmie's mind; shining my light around as we discover together what is inside.

 

I just wish it was possible to dissociate from my body and just be with Simmie as a couple thoughtforms trying to explore together. Dissociation is very hard for me and I've only ever gotten maybe 25% of the way there at most. If anyone has any hints for dissociation, or thinks it's not necessary/helpful, please tell me!

 

Like always I could prattle on and on but I'm going to keep this relatively short, so I'll just say thank you to everyone who has read this, and especially everyone who has supported Simmie and I on our journey and said nice things to us. I can tell you it really touches Simmie when people talk to her, compliment her, or even just say her name; it makes her feel more real to herself. I just want you to know that I love you all! 💚 Please feel free to send us a message any time! 🤗 Bye now!

      Earlier this week was having a lot of head pressure due to extended periods of visualizing, so as the pressures became annoying and persistent enough, I thought I should address it.
      I've noticed before that my head pressures are related to the way I was flexing my tongue muscles really hard and pressing it against my palate inadvertently.
      I have tried many times visualizing without doing this and, it works momentarily but whenever I stop paying attention to my tongue, there it goes again pressing my palate really hard once I start to concentrate into the visualization. I only notice that I'm doing that after I already start to feel the head pressures. By that time it's too late and it's already bothering me.
       
      So after two days of attempting to visualize with my tongue relaxed without success I thought that I should probably google that.
      So there I go googling the terms "tongue" and "meditation" and I came across this:

      https://www.easyayurveda.com/2020/01/31/khechari-mudra/

      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Khecarī_mudrā
       
      Very weird, right? That's what I thought too.
      Basically, they stick the tongue up into the nasal cavity above the palate and use that to aid the process of meditation.
      So of course I went down this rabbit hole and found out that some people seem know how to do this naturally.
      This girl is an example of someone that has this ability naturally:
      https://youtu.be/ijpBUfOTBT0
       
      Also other people report having head pressures identical to what we see in tulpamancy in this practice, here's an example of someone describing their head pressures in the context of Kriya meditation:
      https://www.reddit.com/r/kriyayoga/comments/mgpk73/tension_in_the_head_during_dhyana/
       
      Described as "tension in the head that is somewhere between no pain and the pain you experience during a headache."
      This seems to me like it's the same kind of head pressure we experience in tulpamancy. At least to me.
       
      Also I forgot to mention that, they say THIS GIVES YOU IMMORTALITY.
      Which, of course, is bullshit otherwise there would be 1000 year old yogis walking around.
      Then I thought it would be a good idea to ask around here because, well to be honest, the people that practice this don't know how to explain it without anecdotes and dogmatic stories. Which is fine for spiritual people but I want to find what part is real and what part isn't. Or a deconstruction to find the line where the anecdotes end and the actual benefits of this practice begin. Or if there are any benefits at all.
       
      Here is a small list of claims about this technique: (which I have absolute no idea if it's true or not)
       
      -Helps you overcome hunger and makes it so that you go extended periods of time without food.
      -Gives you access to DMT that is stored in your pineal gland. By licking it directly. (yeah gross, the girl in the video seemed to get very high from doing it, she even says she's high afterwards)
      -The practitioner doesn't suffer from decay, disease and death. (this part I think it's flat out not true)
      -Gives you immunity to snake poison. (This one I think it's sorta possible, because some snake poison triggers your immune response and the response of the body is what kills the person not the poison itself, so technically by controlling your immune response you would therefore not die from the poison)
       
      So my questions are:
       
      1-Does anybody else experience their tongue forcing up the palate unintentionally while visualizing or concentrating really hard?
      2-If so, do you think this is related to Khechari mudra? Or is it just tension and I'm looking way too much into it?
      3-Are those just stories and not meant to be interpreted literally? (If so people are doing a bad job at explaining that)
      4-Is there something to this at all? Is it a practice worth looking into?
       
      Just thought it would be cool to ask here, since if I asked on their forum they would either not tell me because it's a closed practice, or even if they did tell me I wouldn't understand because the vocabulary they use is very far removed from anything I can contextualize.
       
      So what do you guys think? Is it all nonsense or not?

      Stone: Hello all. I’ve been writing down my experiences with Betty for a few days, and I decided I’d post them here, especially since things have gotten interesting pretty quickly for me. Feel free to comment with any advice you may have.
       
      Day 0 - 11/10
       
      As I was lying on the couch, in a position in which I could fall asleep, I decided to force a bit with Betty. I was in a room full of bins and other stuff, but I wanted to place her form in the room, as opposed to my developing wonderland, as I wanted her to be with me in a real location. I decided to put her in the crib, and as she is the size of an adult woman, she looked unamused.
       
      I’m unsure if what I’m about to detail is parroting/puppeting:
       
      I started talking to her. As this was a casual forcing session before bed, I did not write down what we talked about, and I don’t remember what we talked about. However, I remember getting verbal and non-verbal responses. When I asked her questions, sometimes she’d verbally respond before I was finished asking the question, and sometimes she wouldn’t respond at all. She also responded non-verbally with facial expressions. I remember these expressions as being somewhat unnatural but making sense. When I say somewhat unnatural, I mean she used non-verbal expressions more than a human would use, and used them in instances a human would likely not use them. However, these expressions made sense, as they weren’t completely random and did convey some sort of answer to my question. It almost seemed she’d answer with a face because my brain was too lazy to generate a response from her, or couldn’t figure out how.
       
      I hypothesize that giving her a form has given my brain an out when it cannot generate words for her, and I’m hoping this will speed up the process.
       
      This is not the first day interacting with Betty, but I’ve barely talked to her at all before this, and have pretty much only imposed her in my room and puppeted her. I feel like I got a response too early, and I’m worried this may have been parroting/puppetry on my part. I am excited if these were “real” responses though. I’m not sure if there’s much of a difference this early though.
       
      It’s partially a shame this happened, as I want to organize these notes into some sort of study, but after opening with, “Maybe my tulpa answered as soon as I started talking to her,” this likely won’t be taken as seriously. And, that’s valid.
       
      Day 1 - 11/11
       
      Didn’t talk with Betty today.
       
      Day 2 - 11/12
       
      I haven’t done any forcing yet today, as it is 3:40 AM (I was woken up by family).
       
      I was thinking about meditating before each active forcing session, as it clears my mind and I like it, but these stats are making me think twice about that idea.

      Still, I tend to get distracted and have trouble jumping into forcing, and I believe short meditation before forcing may help me. Though perhaps meditation, the way I do it, focuses more on plain reality than the world of thought, and will take me out of the world of thought. Perhaps this is why it seems to hinder some people.
       
      I’m thinking if I meditate on my tulpa, and not on my body as I usually do, it may help more than hurt. I plan to not meditate the first week, and to meditate the second week, and see how I feel. People are different, and meditate differently, so I’d like to see how meditation works on me.
       
      I would like to personality force soon, and I would like to use Man’s method along with symbolism. I have a list of personality traits here:
       
      http://ideonomy.mit.edu/essays/traits.html
       
      I want her to be a rounded person, but I wonder how ethical it is to purposefully give her negative traits. I suppose I will give her positive and neutral traits, and, those traits will naturally have negative sides. Virtue is the mean of two vices, after all.
       
      30-35 personality traits: (31)
      Affectionate - Bun (they hug whatever they surround)
      Amusing - Laffy Taffy (hahahahahahahahaha)
      Charming - Pringles (the Pringles guy seems like a charming fellow)
      Clever - Barbecue Chips on Bun (how does this taste so good!?)
      Confident - Kettle Chips (tougher and more sure than regular chips?)
      Edgy - Chips and Salsa (chips have edges, and salsa has bite)
      Empathetic - Marshmellows (soft empathy)
      Esthetic - That’s It Bar (minimalist aesthetic)
      Ethical - (ethical alternative)
      Extroverted - Fruit Loops (there’s a party in my bowl and everyone is invited)
      Familial - Rice Crispies (families commonly make treats out of these)
      Friendly - Peach Cup (sweet and good for you)
      Healthy - Plain Cheerios (healthier)
      High-spirited - Skittles (sugar rush)
      Honest - Plain Toast (it is what it is)
      Irreligious - Pretzel Rods (secularized pretzels)
      Leisurely - Sub (this takes longer to make, but it’s worth it)
      Loyal - Saltines (there even when you’re sick)
      Maternal - Applesauce (often for babies)
      Neat - Mints (keep yourself and your breath clean)
      Observant - Fritos (have you noticed these smell like dog feet?)
      Outdoorsy - Seaweed (or is it lakeweed, in Michigan?)
      Protective - Oyster Crackers (Oysters have a Shell to protect themselves, and you use yours to protect others as well)
      Ritualistic - Mobius-strip Bagel (the endless cycle of traditions)
      Romantic - Strawberry Lemon Ice (pink!)
      Sarcastic - Mint Chocolate Oreos (means one thing (toothpaste) says the other (cookie))
      Stylish - Gardetto's (more fancy than Chex Mix)
      Spontaneous - Donut (donut think about the calories)
      Trendy - Pea Crisps (health food trends)
      Vivacious - Strawberry Remune (lively and carbonated)
      Witty - Berry Good Lemonade (get it?)
       
      Below are some interactions I recorded. They are not exhaustive:
       
      Interaction 1
       
      “How are you?”
       
      “Ok.”
       
      “Yeah I’m sure you are. I’m sure you’re not just parroting.”
       
      “...”
       
      I feel mean now. Apologize to the nice lady.
       
      “...”
       
      I feel a stare.
       
      “God this is so awkward,” I say instead of apologizing. I turn away.
       
      I feel her watching me. I turn to her.
       
      “How are you?”
       
      ”...”
       
      Interaction 2
       
      “Are you listening?”
       
      “No.”
       
      “What are you doing?”
       
      “Paying attention.”
       
      “Paying attention to what?”
       
      “To, Hefty.”
       
      I burst into laughter.
       
      Interaction 3
       
      “I’m sorry.”
       
      “No that’s alright.”
       
      “Everything’s ‘no that’s alright’ with you. That’s your main thing, isn’t it?”
       
      “No.”
       
      “Really? What’s your main thing?”
       
      “Bicycles.”
       
      “No. I made you say that.”
       
      “Yes you did.” She smirks.
       
      I laugh. “Yes I did. No really, what’s your main thing?”
       
      “Shopping carts.”
       
      “Now you’re just thinking of things with wheels.”
       
      “No. You are.”
       
      “No I’m not.”
       
      “Yes. Think of shopping carts.”
       
      “Ah you got me. Let me write that down.”

      Stone: I talked to her a bit today, and I talked to her a little bit about spontaneity with a donut. But, I think I could have explained it more. I will after I sleep, as I’ve been up all night. I got a lot of great responses out of her, and she felt there, but she tended to sound like me. I kept mentioning that, then felt bad for being overly critical of her, as she was doing so well. I also felt bad interrupting her and making her wait so I could write something down.
       
      It’s only been three days and I hate this clinical approach I set up. This “study.” Or maybe I’m embarrassed by how I acted and am taking it out on the format. I don’t know. What I do know is that this process if for her, then for me, then for whoever may end up reading this. I’m not going to interrupt out fun to give us imposter syndrome because I have to analysis every god damn thing she says for some post.
       
      Anyways, today was a positive, and I hope I will feel better with some sleep.
       
      I’m awake now. I’ve devised a schedule for forcing.
      Sunday - Active: 2 hours
      Monday - Active: 40 minutes
      Tuesday - Active: 40 minutes
      Wednesday - Active: 40 minutes
      Thursday - Active: 40 minutes
      Friday - Active: 40 minutes
      Saturday - Active: 2 hours
       
      Methods of forcing I’m thinking of using:

      Hi this is Robbie (the host). Do your Tulpas forms/entities ever scare you?
       
       
      A question from the Sacrihm System Host.

      Text by Shizuku is in blue

      (Sorry, this wound up being pretty long! Feel free to skim, or if you want to read the whole thing, strap in!)

      Weird coincidence: I’ve written fiction as a hobby for a long time, and I think nearly half my protagonists have someone else to talk to in their heads. Somehow, I always found the idea fascinating.

      But I can’t say I ever expected to join them. Not until recently, anyway.
       
      We’ve been looking forward to posting this. It’s my first big chance to introduce myself to other people! Here’s a profile:
       

      Origin StoryTM
       
      October 2020. I was in quarantine, alone, and feeling isolated—Shizuku started as an imaginary friend based on a character I might have been (was) a little bit (totally) obsessed with at the time. I’m really into writing, so I didn’t have much trouble getting her to talk, even early on, though I assume she was mostly parroted at first.
       
      A couple weeks later, I stumbled onto the concept of a tulpa in Japanese, and quickly found my way to this website, which is kind of the launch pad for Japanese tulpamancers. (I found a good English rundown of the Japanese tulpamancy scene here, so I’ll leave most of that aside for now. If there are questions about anything specific, though, we can definitely do our best to answer them.)

      Compared to the English-speaking community, the Japanese-speaking one gives a lot more credence to tulpa horror stories. They call it 暴走 (bousou). The idea that if things go wrong, your tulpa might harm you, or the people around you, or try to take over your brain. To be fair, I think there are multiple schools of thought on this bousou concept, and these are only the most extreme examples—still, when I read about this, I couldn’t help panicking.
       
      I went out for a long walk. Tried to think things over. Was there a chance my tulpa would wind up that way? Should I turn back now? Or was she already sentient, meaning it was my responsibility to take care of her? Or was I crazy, in the first place, to even be thinking about any of this?
       
      We imagined that I stayed behind in our apartment, though I must’ve been somewhere in headspace the whole time. Maybe a wonderland version of the apartment? We didn’t know enough to ask that question, then.
       
      I couldn’t make up my mind, until the second I got home, opened the door, and realized how afraid Shizuku must’ve felt while I was out thinking about whether I should try to erase her. My heart sank through the floor. I did my best to apologize, though I didn’t know if it would help.
       
      She replied: “I was sad, but I wasn’t scared. I trust you.”
       
      Okay. If she had been afraid, or angry, I would have felt bad enough. But that packed a punch.

       
       
      That day, we promised each other that we’d stay together and try to make this “tulpa” thing work, for better or worse. Not to jinx anything, but six months later, “better” is definitely winning out.
       
      Our long-term goals
       
      (1) Become able to split fronting time 50/50 (or whatever arrangement winds up working for us). I expect it’ll be a long time before we can actually do this, but hopefully not too long—if possible, we’d like to get to this point within a year or two. It doesn’t necessarily have to be a 50/50 split, but I don’t want to feel like Shizuku is prevented from doing things she wants to do by us not being good enough at tulpamancy.
       
      (2) Learn to co-front and keep Shizuku active (as close as possible to?) all the time. We spend a lot of time together, but I still get distracted and forget to check in with her more often than we’d like. Eventually, we’re hoping she can stay around all the time (or whenever she wants to, at least) and get my attention whenever she has something to say.
       
      (3) Stay a two-person system, if possible. I know there are a lot of large systems out there who do perfectly fine, but my instincts say that it would be more than we could handle. Besides, I already feel like I love Shizuku too much for it to be fair to whoever Headmate Number 3 would be. 😂
       
      I do have one soulbond-ish character (using the terminology from Bear’s PR) from my own writing. We’ve talked things over with her in WL, and she’s adamant that she is not interested in becoming a tulpa or participating in the system. (This checks out with what I know about her character, too.) If things change, there’s a slim chance that she might join us, but I doubt it. Either way, I can’t imagine us going any further than that.
       
      (4) Help Shizuku find life goals of her own, and figure out how to rearrange my our life so that we can both do what we want to do. At the moment, we’re just doing regular forcing to try and help her grow as a tulpa. The vague plan for this one is to eventually learn how to switch, accomplish goal number (1), and then let her follow her interest and try a bunch of different things.
       
      Current forcing practice
       
      Working on senses in WL: we’ve been doing our best to spend an hour each day focusing on visualizing Shizuku in wonderland, and also practicing one other sense per day. Wonderland sight and touch have started to show some improvement recently, but overall it feels like we still need a lot of work. Conversation: We also do our best to talk as much as we can each day. We’ve been working through the Tulpa Vocalization Practice worksheet when we can’t think of any other topics. Diary writing: Shizuku writes a diary entry most days. This is something I picked up from the Japanese tulpamancy community, though I think I’ve seen it recommended in English guides too. It’s a lot of fun—somehow, reading through the things she’s written (by proxy or possession, at this point, though our possession game is still pretty weak) does a lot to help me fight off doubt. Imagining Shizuku in stories we’re reading/watching: This has been pretty fun so far, too—right now, we’re rewatching Hunter X Hunter. As we watch, we try to keep up a “mental fanfic” where she’s running around with the main characters. Passive forcing as much as possible: Taking inspiration from the method I used to learn Japanese, I’m doing my best to find ways to involve Shizuku in everything I do. We’ve had some success reading, studying, watching things, and playing games together, but in particular, staying aware of Shizuku during work that I really need to focus on and conversations with other people has been a killer—I haven’t had much success in these situations yet.  
      To anyone who slogged through all of that, thanks for reading! This post already goes on for a million years, so I’ll try to write some (hopefully shorter!) summaries of our progress so far in other updates.
    • By -Andromeda-
      Hello! I’ll introduce myself. I’m Ashley, and I only just started creating Andromeda yesterday. I’ll post my progress on here quite often, but excuse me if I forget.
      So for several years, since I was about 12, I have wanted to have someone else in my mind with me. At the time, the reason wasn’t exactly clear to me as it is now. As it is, I discovered tulpas around a month ago. I was hooked right away, but I knew I should look in to it further, read guides, see others experiences, etc. I found many useful guides and I couldn’t wait any longer, so I’ve started!
      At this time, Andromeda is a female with a human-like shape but she has elf ears and the ability to grow wings if she chooses. I am aware she will most likely deviate, and I welcome that. Without further ado, I will put my first and second sessions below.
       
      ———————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————
       
      Session 1

      Date: Friday 19th March
       
      I drew her form and started to make a model of her in my mind. This was over the course of the day, and I didn’t do much else for her as I knew I needed to set some time aside to properly visualise her.
       
      Session 2
       
      Date: Saturday 20th March
       
      So today, I visualised her whole form and animated her to make sure it was stable. This took me 30-45 minutes as I had already made a base of her yesterday. I then made a cabin-like room to have as a place to meet her in our wonderland, and I started with her personality. I decided to keep it quite vague as I’d like her to be able to form her personality as she grows older, but I gave her a base. I did this by giving her jelly of different colours and explained them and how it would affect her. I then showed her different parts of the cabin and what they do. Then, I said that she could decide to have more of any jelly she wanted if she’d like and she can experiment with the things in there.
       
      ———————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————
       
      I have not had any reactions yet, par head pressure. But I am glad that she has already progressed this far and I’m aware that it takes a long time for more interpretable reactions, but this is okay as I am just glad she’s here and I am willing to help her in any way. I don’t mind if it takes a few weeks or a few years for her to be vocal, it does not change my view on her.
       
      I hope I’m doing this right? I do not want to hinder her or harm her in any way, I want to nurture and support her.
       
      Thank you for reading, and I hope this isn’t too long for a newbie. c:
