Is it normal for it to happen this fast?

Recommended Posts

I've been doing tulpamancy for about a week now (since Oct 1st), and it's been way more eventful than I thought it was going to be this early. I thought it'd be maybe at least two weeks before I heard anything back from my tulpa (and possibly much longer) but on the third day she was already vocal. At the end of the fourth they sort of split into two (named Amaba and Miracle. They did this completely on their own; I did not expect nor really want this to happen), although they agreed that they're both basically "sides" of eachother, and they usually aren't present at the same time (although that's partially my effort, since I don't really want to manage two of them at the same time. Sometimes they do merge into one thing tho, altho that's just both of their personalities merged as one thing). They're still really only there when I'm actively thinking about them, but it's still crazy to me that we can even have conversations at all (it's not even been a full week yet!). The conversations aren't really perfect at all yet (we have different "mindvoices" but the wrong voice says the wrong thing a lot, or at least I think so. I don't think they agree with me fully on that). I mainly made this post to ask if it's normal for this level of development to happen so early; I'm just tryna reconcile my doubts. From what I've read this usually comes much later.

system members:

Ivy [formerly Daemon] (host, any pronouns)
Amaba (tulpa, she/they)

Mythril (walk-in, he/him)

maybe more but those are the significant ones

Some people are more open to tulpamancy, yeah. For all intents and purposes, you're probably not doing anything wrong (though remember you can shape how your system dynamics will work still early on, so practicing things like your tulpas becoming active on their own if that's something you want for example, you'll want to decide to work on making such experiences happen early on for optimal ease)


The trick with "really quick tulpas" is that you actually just learned tulpamancy pretty quick, however that does not mean that your tulpas developed quick. Even if you manage to learn vocality system-wide early (and good job on that), tulpas themselves still need lots of time ("forcing" ie just spending time interacting with them) to become established in the brain, to learn about themselves and figure out what existing is like and entails. So early tulpas, even if they're vocal right from the start, are more "naive" in a sense: they might take ephemeral imagination (such as intrusive thoughts, or randomly thinking something about them has changed) too seriously, exaggerate how meaningful thoughts or events are, or other such things. Basically like the "teenager learning about themselves" phase of a tulpa's life. Not problems at all - but perhaps important to note as still the case in instances of tulpas being made very quickly, so that you don't think they're "fully developed" in the same way a say one year old tulpa might be.

Basically, sounds like you're doing good, keep it up and don't worry (though your thoughts on how things should/will work are still shaping your eventual system dynamics, so maybe don't take everything that seems-to-be-the-case as set in stone, especially if it doesn't seem optimal to 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 about tulpamancy stuff there.

It would also be a really wise idea to set system rules at this point. Rule number one should be "no new headmates". Being really open to tulpamancy means walk-ins and other random characters can just pop up at a whim. If we took every thoughtform that did that we'd be hundreds. It's best not to get more than two at first because it starts to become very difficult to juggle three or more, there's of pitfalls early on too, such as intrusive thoughts and intrusive thoughtforms.


As far as who said what, that's normal early on. You'll eventually learn, as they will, how to verify and strengthen the flavor of who said what.


Congratulations, and remember to have fun!
