Well, I've lurked, and I've lurked, and then I've lurked some more.

I've read pretty much every guide there is. But now it's time to actually get to work

Problem is... Well, you see, I'm lazy. Like, really really lazy. I also have a habit of hesitating and second guessing myself. I can also get a little distracted. Sometimes.

So, I'm starting this little journal here.

I'll try to add a post here periodically, even if it is relatively short. At least in the beginning. Cultivating this small habit will hopefully force a little discipline.

Typing it all out will hopefully solidify my thoughts. Yell at me if don't keep this up. :Þ

 

That being said. Lets start:

 

Why am I doing this? What do I hope to gain?

Well a companion for one. I don't have that much trouble making friends, but I have trouble keeping and maintaining connections. I've quite often drifted or grown apart from many people in my life. I'm a bit socially awkward, maybe even a bit socially anxious in some respects. I can certainly hide it, but the more people are around, the more I find myself wishing I was somewhere else, doing something else. It's not that I hate people, I don't.  And I don't plan to stop making connections with physical people. I just don't have the physical or mental energy to deal with too many people for too long.

 

Still, the opportunity for someone to understand me on a truly deep level that no one else can is very enticing. I can only hope that I'll be, and remain, worthy of this connection.

 

This will also be a bit of an ego journey for me. A chance to better know and understand myself as well as my future headmate. having someone to share this journey with will make it much more enjoyable.

 

Also add to that the opportunity to learn first hand an experience that seems rather alien at first glance and that I'm already a creative person, this becomes less of a choice and more of an inevitability.

 

The start

Right now I have a name and very loose, general idea of who I hope this tulpa will be.

Staying within the tradition of opposite genderedness in tulpamancy, "Hazel" will start female. This will help me differentiate her thoughts from mine.

 

A couple main traits I will be cultivating are:

Compassion- A personal code I like to live by is if someone needs or asks for help and I am able to do so, then I will help. Lessen the suffering of others. Having her share in that will make it simpler to coexist. This will also encourage many positive traits

Curiosity- a desire to learn and grow will help develop her and push her to be self sustaining

Outspokenness-  to encourage vocality.

this is not exhaustive just some major points

 

What I won't be forcing:

Love- From what I understand, most tulpas tend to be already naturally very caring towards their hosts. Also love, I feel, needs to develop naturally. Making someone love me just feels weird. plus that is a pressure I wouldn't want on anyone. Still, I'm sure my subconscious may still add this to the list regardless.

Lust- same

 

Form:

I don't have much of a form for her yet. I've had some ideas but none are really sticking. It is humanoid though. Freckles and dark hair are also coming to mind. That could just be my attraction to them.

 

I will, of course, accept any deviation from her. Encourage it, even.

 

The Method

I'm a very secular being by nature. Still, the mind loves symbols and most of the tulpamantic process is extremely symbolic. As such, I'll be taking some inspiration from the occult, particularly chaos magic.

so:

Spoiler

Seed-Egg.jpg.a986ce33a51175c0641b35badc2f8117.jpg

I love symbols, glyphs, and sigils. This is a representation of my intent to create a thoughtform. It is a seed or an egg as the round shape suggests. A beginning. Small and empty at first, but as time goes on, I'll be altering it and adding to it. It will slowly grow as she grows. In time, I may pass it to her. I'm creative by nature so this will just be a natural part of my creative process. The dotted outline suggests openness, inviting life to enter. The geometric shapes invoke a crystalline structure to "trap" the energy or qualities being cultivated. (Again, I'm not a proponent of metaphysics, but the symbology here is very useful).

 

I will use and meditate on this as an aid while I cultivate her development. I'm not too fond of the term 'forcing' at all, so I'll use the term 'cultivate' as it way better describes the process: to raise, to grow, to prepare, do develop, to improve, to acquire. It brings to mind watering and tending to a garden. This will further put me in the right mindset. (I also have mixed thoughts on the terms tulpa and tulpamancy but I have no desire to get into a fight with the entire lexicon).

 

Wish me luck.

Hey! I hope you will find what you are looking for there. Having tulpa is an amazing experience,

although it demands some time to be put in it. But, it's definitly worth it!

For your tulpa you always will be worthy, just give them your time and love and it will be fine, I promise.

Kinda funny for me as I did the same, but I ended up with a male. Give your tulpa a free choice if it wants to change please  :P

You can use whatever word you like, just feel comfortable with it. If you are going to use diffrent word for those in posts just let everyone know.

 

 

Anyway, remember to enjoy the proces and stay content with yourself. Give your tulpa some time if it needs it and be patient ( I would like to be 

patient to). Journey before destination and good luck !

,,Breathing is fun"

Also, stop reading this and go appreaciate your tulpa.

 

Me - host

Elzu - tulpa

You remind me quite a lot of myself in many ways, especially when it comes to your reasons for doing this and your approach. I'm very excited to see your progress! I love the symbolism that you're using; I've always been fond of sacred geometry though I admit my understanding of it is extremely basic. I like the use of "cultivate", it's very classy!

Also known as GypsyRoad or Phil Present. Call me what you want, I'm not picky.

Simmie is my lovely tulpa, she's quite young still but is eager to meet and chat with new people so don't hesitate to say hi!

Well, just finished my first cultivation. About a 5-10 minute session (I didn't really time it). Mostly reaffirming what I established in my first post, what I mean with what I wrote and telling her a little bit about my day.

For the past 3 weeks I've been using an app to do a guided mindfulness meditation in preparation for this. Because of that I was already in the habit of meditating at the end of the day. for most of the day I tried to get in the habit of keeping her in my thoughts in the back of my mind. I've set the tulpa/seed symbol as my phone's wallpaper as a reminder.

 

One thing I've decided I was going to listen for in terms of vocality and recognizing her thoughts was my name. Most people don't typically think to themselves in the third person so I figured I'd catch that pretty quick. As such I tried to make it clear that if she ever wants my attention or make sure I hear her she can call my name. At least until she's established herself.

Another thing I'll be looking for is any bits of annoyance or frustration at my not understanding her. This will push her further toward vocality and me recognizing her. Not that I'm intentionally tying to annoy her (well, maybe a little. I can spare a bit of impishness. I'm sure she'll have something to say about it).

 

Overall, it's a weird experience. I imagine it's a lot like praying, though I've never prayed a day in my life and don't plan to. I've been in churches, went to a catholic school, read (most) of the bible, and attended a lot of Quaker meetings (developed a LOT of patience from that. Made the mindfulness meditation at least seem comparatively simple) but never prayed. Never cared for it. still don't.

 

So this made it feel odd. Still, I enjoy the meditative aspect, if all else fails.

Session 2

Spent about 15 Minutes sending questions into the ether of the mind. not really expecting particular answers, they're mostly just things for her (and me) to contemplate. they're mostly personality questions: "What's your favorite genre's?" "Are you more of a cat or dog person?" that sort of thing.

 

No real concrete answers, to early. Maybe some emotional responses? Chills? Excitement? been having them for a couple days, mostly when I think of or try to include her. Probably just an anticipation of a response more then anything. It's too evanescent for a more scientific analysis. Still I may attach the feeling to her as part of the cultivation. The association may help her grow.

 

Earlier today I read a section of John D Barrow's The Book of Nothing as a part of passive cultivation. I had started reading it a couple months ago but I got distracted halfway through it. This seemed like a good excuse to continue it. Could have been her influence as I had the feeling that I really should finish it more then usual. Still, who knows? Would fit in the curiosity I'm trying to cultivate. I'll attach that feeling too. (p.s. I do recommend the book to anyone to anyone with in interest in the nature of zero, voids and nothingness. It is rather fascinating!)

 

I've also been playing crosswords on my phone as part of the passive cultivation, listening in for any suggestions. I think puzzles like this would be useful in cultivation, if you can remember to keep listening, and not get too distracted.

Heh, thank you. I've always kept an objective, secular view of the world, but I still fell in love with occult symbols and mythology, so I'm always looking up the meanings of different esoteric symbols and such.

 

I didn't intend this at first but the tulpa seed glyph has an 8 pointed star as a representation of the sigil of chaos:

Spoiler

spacer.pngTulpaSeed-SigilOfCaos.jpg.d5d8162f7c74683115a8ef0f1c5eda5b.jpg

Given the nature of all this, I suppose it's appropriate. I am essentially trying to achieve some sort of "gnosis" when cultivating. At the very least, I'm trying to alter my state of mind in order to accommodate another. I'll take it as a reminder.

 

The most important thing with this kind of thing is intention and expectation. Both influence, even dictate your mental reality.

 

At least that's what I think.

Thank you for the friendly reply:)

yeah, I have no intention in rushing. That's one of the worst things to do in a relationship. I've had my small share of impatient companions. not a lot, but still. Funny how it always ends up short.

Session 3

Today I took 10 minutes to meditate on the symbol.  I brought the image up on my phone, set it to full screen and allowed myself to get lost in it. I symbolically imagined mental "energy" to flow from me into the center of the structure, becoming part her.

 

As I stared the light around me seemed to fluctuate and darkened as I focused. The lines of the geometry seemed to brightened and sharpened, then loose focus. Certain shapes became more pronounced and/or fall into chaos as I gained, lost, and regained focus. The "seed-of-life" lattice pattern placed subtly behind the geometry gave a depth which seemed to slightly increase as I stared. The subtle subconscious movements of my head made it seem to move out of sync with the rest of the image, further hinting at its depth.

 

The emptiness of the center bothered me, made it difficult to focus. The glyph represented a potential for birth and growth, but there needed to be else something there. Something to represent her. Her mind, heart, and spirit, so to speak. A single point for her to grow. A spark.

It's a start.

With this I further the coalescence of her mind.

 

During the meditation I felt as I should think some sort of affirmations or mantras but I didn't really have much prepared, other than "I will you into existence," or something like that. Near the end, though, I asked some more questions on her thoughts about the day. Nothing much.

 

After the meditation we read another section of John Barrow's book. Funnily enough, it was on geometry.

Sessions 4-6

Continuing meditation and cultivation.

When developing Hazel, I tried to imagine her heart/soul/core as a glowing marble of white light. I can cup this light in the palm of my hand. As I breath, I imagine blowing life into it making it grow bigger and brighter. Like a glowing white ember.

 

With narration, I find myself blanking on things to say. I've been quite often quiet throughout my life. I suppose years of being the weird kid instilled a lot more social awkwardness into my psyche then I realized. Not that I'm a complete blundering maladroit. I'm still functional. Kind of. I feel part of it is the blank page/canvas syndrome. I need to start planning ahead of time. And not get distracted.

 

While doing the focus meditation, I noticed that, for brief periods, color would grey out along with the perceived fluctuations in light. It's subtle. A soon as I notice it, it's gone. after a while, my eyes will wonder and jump involuntarily, breaking focus. Still, the sensation's interesting. I might switch back to mindfulness breath exercises for a little while, or maybe I'll start doing that in the morning.

 

My last session was 30 minutes, as I was trying to see how long I could push the meditation. it was difficult, but doable. While I try to keep Hazel in my mind for as long as possible, I feel as though I'm not giving her the attention she deserves. I'll keep experimenting.

Stone: Try not to let that guilt get to you. Slow and steady tulpa developement is ok. It's, of course, cool to push yourself if you're up to it, though.

Sometimes I think religious people who are really personally attached to religious figures have made said figures into thoughtforms. When I was little, and I prayed, oftentimes it was just talking and expecting an answer, which is what forcing is at its most simple.

Yup. It's frustrating. I'm not very good at narration.

      Hi, I am having some trouble with visualization. The thing is, I don't think my visualization is that bad, but I am having a ton of trouble actually focusing on that visualization instead of the back of my eyelids. I am wondering if anyone has a suggestion of what I can do, like I said I don't even think my visualization is bad but I just have a lot of trouble concentrate on it.

      How does one integrate with another willing tulpa? We have multiple wanting to "merge" but- It seems too complicated. Can someone walk us through the steps?
       
       
    • By BearBaeBeau
      [Bear] I want to try to describe how we figured we handle dormancy of other headmates to allow someone to front without distractions.
       
      A lot of talk in the community occured regarding "front-stuck" hosts and other interruptions by headmates and my opinion of that is that if you think your other headmate is still there, then the new fronter may interpret reactions and other stray thoughts as theirs when in fact they may very well be a mixture of conditioned responses and intrusive thoughts.
       
      This topic isn't about that in particular, that's just an example connection. This topic is meant to share how someone can think to eliminate the stray thouhts and reactions and disconnect them from other potential fronters.
       
      If this doesn't work for you, that's unfortunate, but it works fine for us and it's based completely on a mindset and simple rules which I'll get into. There's no magic here, just a mode of thinking that has worked for us.
       
      If you have your own process, procedures or insights, please feel free to discuss them.
       

       
      [Bear] We just had a discussion, Ashley, Joy and I and this is how we think it works:
       
      [Joy] I just don't think of them.
       
      [Bear] Simple. Just do that. In reality it's not enough to go by and I understand that, but it actually is another one of those practice and it will just click sort of things. Here's an example of what we're trying to avoid by putting a headmate in dormancy.
       


       
       
      Here we discovered that the BodyOS feels like me. As the main fronter and associated to it most of my life, you can imagine there is good reason to associate it with me. Our point is, the BodyOS is conditioned by me so of course it feels and acts like me even when I'm not there.
       


       
      [Bear] The first key insight here is that the headmate must actively ignore and block others' thoughts. This will act similarly to how the original would let their headmates slip into dormancy when they're busy or not otherwise thinking of them before they were engrained in everything, in other words, before they were mature.
      We separate fronter from BodyOS and accept that some reactions from BodyOS aren't them. If you associate everything not you as any other headmates, you're likely going to keep them awake. Even if it's not them.
       


       
      [Bear] This is a trick I also use to dismiss egoic or intrusive thoughts. Like yesterday when intrusive thoughts said mean things out of the blue, I simply ignored them. In fact, in our system, it's required to confirm anything negative or derogatory so we don't get extra drama from intrusive thoughts.
       
      So what's the difference between that and "I'm there blending with my headmates"? 
      The answer is in how you accept the thoughts and whether you let them affect you.
       


       
      Joy has this down and we learned a lot from her. It helps that she was always a very strong headmate and distinctly different in how she thinks.
       
      Good luck and hopefully, good night.
       
    • By neo
      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?
    • By ruleofthumb
      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:

      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:
