You picture your tulpa in real life until it becomes real life. There are a few tricks to help with it, but basically you're creating a hallucination and tricking your brain into thinking something is there when it is not.


Any way you slice it, it's going to take a lot of time and much practiced concentration to bring them into this world. First though, you're going to need a good idea of who they are, and you need to be able to picture your tulpa in your mind very well, before you try imposition.

Tulpa's name: April

Form: Human female

You imagine her besides of you. It's explained in the guides (inb4 DON'T USE THEM), you have to imagine and believe your fully formed tulpa is besides you, then you imagine it next to you. You'll get used to it with time and your tulpa will be able to be with you in the real world without effort.

I'm working on imposing Lyra two different ways:


I try to imagine her following behind me or otherwise with me at all times, not really expecting to see anything of her when she's in my field of vision. This builds a belief that she's there. It also makes me keep her in the back of my mind at all times, which leads to faster growth. A side effect of doing this is huge amounts of practice casually visualizing and keeping track of 3D spaces -- this has done *wonders* for my normal visualization when forcing. I suggest people do this from day one. Even if you don't have a form designed yet, try to imagine an undefined presence, glowing sphere, or something behind you. I've gotten one brief flash of the back of her head when she was sitting in a chair.

glowing sphere - add wings and HEY! LISTEN! HEY! WATCH OUT!



Other thing I'm really just starting on is having her sit or stand in front of me. I then try to get into a somewhat daydreamy state and then do a combination of looking and touching. Touch because feeling textures helped me "see" better when my closed-eye visualization was rubbish; should have a similar effect here. It also helps me make the positions of parts of her more definite. Talking with her while doing this helps as well. Doing this, I've had one brief flash of almost all of her, though the image was semi-transparent. I can often get an extremely faint thing, something like an afterimage. I wouldn't start on this method at least until you have her form burned into your brain, and preferably after you can communicate with her semi-reliably.


Additionally, small forms are likely easier to impose. I was starting with Lyra's full-size human form, but I might be better off doing her mini fairy-like form first. It's nearly the same as the full-size form, so we might be able to mostly scale it up to full-size after imposition, sort of a more natural feeling version of this idea.


With both methods I'm doing, forcing the visualization too hard makes things worse. Expecting something to appear all but guarantees that nothing will. Getting into a daydreamy mental sate helps a lot.


Consciously attempting to daydream is really hard. Most times I've done this successfully, I've just spaced out a while or focused completely on Lyra, without the intent of daydreaming. After a while I notice the mental state I'm in. Consciously trying to force it results in either nothing at all, or I begin to get there but periodically part of me asks if I'm there yet, which kills it instantly.


I've had some success recently with sort of relaxing my mind and letting go. It's related to and evolved from what I describe in this blog post, but less intense and without the boundary blurring stuff.


I figure I'll impose Lyra first. As for Eevee, I partly want to wait for the "3D Pokédex Pro" app for Nintendo 3DS to be released later thing month. It has an augmented reality function that can show any Pokémon superimposed on what its camera sees, in 3D; view angle changes properly as you move the system. I want to see if watching this while doing the touch stuff above is any help at all.

Someone seriously needs to make a guide for this. I might chuck together an idea list like I did for possession back in May. I've been keeping track of a number of ideas I've heard for it from others, mostly on the IRC. There seem to be a number of basic approaches:

  • FAQ_Man's way: Imagine tulpa behind you at all times. Slowly start catching tiny glimpses in the corner of your eye. Bring into full view over a long time. Use other senses for support too.
  • Irish's way: Stare and will tulpa to appear. Within this, you can focus your attention on the tulpa, a simple flat surface behind the tulpa, on nothing at all, or on a point in your mind.
  • Q2 method: Similar to Irish's, but focusing on touch. Open-eye visualize tulpa in your environment, bring hands up to about where they are and stop. Move hands around while imagining textures.
  • endoalir & JD1215: Enter a really deep daydream state and use wizard powers to make whatever you imagine override your real vision.
  • Manipulating the "grains" of visual noise you see when you close your eyes in a dark room. Basically start by trying to will a single grain to be a certain color. Slowly learn to build up shapes and more complex forms. Eventually transition to open-eye. Can result in full visual hallucinations, like other methods here. (I had a link to a nice thread on Dreamviews, but I can't find it.)
  • Tulpa assistance: See if your tulpa can help in any way, beyond just talking to you while you try to do one of the other methods. For instance, Lyra seems to be able to somewhat influence the blobs I see when I'm close to sleep.

Personally I've been trying to impose at night, when there are less distractions to your senses (at least for me). I've been imagining her near me on the couch or standing next to me. It's not quite as daunting when there are more shadows and less to really focus on, and somewhat easier to manipulate your vision.

To believe in certainty, we must begin by doubting. --Polish Proverb

      I wrote this guide, to describe the method I came up with to impose my tulpa. It works very well for me. I hope that it can be useful to some of you as well.

      I whined that we needed an imposition guide so I decided to experiment with my own methods in order to make one for you guys. I did not have to experiment for long as my first method was very successful.
      Basically this leash method is similar to FAQman's method of imagining your Tulpa behind you and eventually mastering that and over time you become good enough to imagine it in your central vision and then it becomes real.
      This method is just like that. But wait! There's more!
      A leash; basically imagine a leash/chain/rope/any other form of physical attachment or linkage and tie one end to yourself (waist or wrist reccommended) and the other end to your Tulpa.
      Now because you are now attached to eachother, you cannot escape eachother as easy. When you walk around you are able to feel the 'tug' of the leash as you pull your Tulpa around. This is very helpful.
      This method is also great because I noticed that whenever i 'forgot' my Tulpa and she was drifting away from my mind, she is able to tug on the rope, catching my attention and making me remember her again.
      Because she is able to simply tug a rope and remind me that she was behind her or wanted attention; this has greatly benefitted my progress. I can now imagine her nearly all the time and I have seen her in the corner of my eyes 3 times. All in a space of nearly a week.
      -Draw a chainlink or some other symbol on your hand to keep reminding yourself of the chain, this seems to give bursts of clarity in visualising her behind me
      -Don't forget to pull the chain yourself if you feel they are drifting away or you are losing them.
      Warnings and reccomendations:
      -This leash is kind of oppressive to some or maybe offensive so make sure you Tulpa is okay with it
      -Make sure you and your Tulpa have the ability to remove the leash. You do not want to develop an unfree Tulpa
      -Make sure to take breaks from this method as the Tulpa will most likely want some alone time from this.
      -Make sure your Tulpa is sentient enough to change the length of the rope at will so they are a little more free.
      I did this method well into sentience (she can speak and move perfectly) and got fantastic results as my Tulpa can now gain my attention in the real world at any moment she wants, all she needs to do is make a small bit of pressure around my wrist simulating the tug of a rope, (she even claims its simple and makes her life alot easier, she says without it, it was very frustrating) I do not know what will happen or if it would work if you did this at an earlier stage.

      Yo, guys. Sparky here to share something I found while researching imposition. Whether or not this has been seen or discussed before, long forgotten in a thread in the catacombs beneath our forum is unknown to me.
      But it's not mine, so I'll post it here first and, if it's deemed better posted elsewhere, that's fine too.

      I made this time a while ago while trying to make a guide for people on touch imposition from what I have done in the past when I was learning to do it few years ago (before the tulpa community). I'm not sure how good it is, but I thought it would be worth posting anyway.
      Note: It often helps to believe that what you are imagining is really there. Closing your eyes and thus not knowing if it is there or not can help as well.
      1. Basic principle of this method
      2a-4b. How to start doing controlled hallucination of touch
      5. How to continue getting better at this
      1) The basic principle behind this method is recreating the perception created by one of the senses, in this case caused by touch, of something you have experienced already.
      2a) An easy way to start is by recreating a small focused (on a small area) feeling that you can control to some degree (caused by you or someone who wants to help you). For example you could start by doing a circle by going with one of your fingers over your palm of your other hand and then stop and recreate the feeling. When you can do that well enough, then try making a spiral or another more complicated object.
      2b) After you get that down well enough, stop recreating a stimulus and instead start feeling (without actually using your finger to do it or feeling it beforehand) new shapes, that you haven't tried yet, or just seemingly random movements. You can try making anything you want, but it should be something that you haven't caused yourself to feel yet.
      3a) Now, recreate more than one small focused feeling at once. For example you could use more than one finger at a time. Start with two fingers and trying to reproduce the feeling, and move up to using all of your fingers.
      3b) Let's stop recreating feelings again and instead start creating multiple small focused feelings created by something that you have used in 4a), but in a way that you haven't felt before.
      4a) When you are able to do those well enough, then you should move onto recreating a feeling that focuses on a bigger area. For example you could put one of your hands over the other hand in any position you would like and try to feel it as much as you can and try to remember that feeling as well as you can. After that stop feeling that feeling and try to recreate it. In the case of using your limbs, I would recommend placing them apart from each other and in a way that they aren't touching any part of your body and then try to recreate the feeling that you got first on only one hand and then on both hands.
      4b) Now, stop recreating those feelings and start creating it in a way you haven't felt before.
      5) Continue this general set of steps (in Xa and Xb) and do them with more and more complicated feelings. You can of course try creating feelings that you have never felt before and aren't possible to feel in physical world like having wings, being out of slime, having animal ears, tail, paws, etc.

      So I've been reading imposition guides and I was wondering if basically all you do is "paste your tulpa over reality, and how long does this take? Also can my tulpa make me hallucinate things other than her form?
