Methos's Tulpa Creation Guide


Recommended Posts

Updated February 6, 2014 with some slight changes.

 

Hello all, I wrote a guide trying my very best to try and go over everything in the process that I used. The guide can be found on Github here:

Feel free to ask me about any questions you might have about the guide.

 

This is STILL a work in progress as there as a few more things that I want to add to my guide here. Let me know what you guys think of it.

The guide goes into detail and the frequent use of examples can be helpful. I like how you cover both theory and practice. My only complaint would be that I find the guide very unorganized, especially considering its huge size.

 

Maybe you could consider converting it to a google document and working out the categories in a style similar to Wikipedia(where the document first presents and directs to all the categories at the top of the page).

Why not convert it to a post or series of posts here? BBCode can handle all the formatting you need.

Maybe it's just personal preference, but I find it easier and more clear to read it on a document, black on white. Not only is it better on the eyes but the content goes without any distraction or external influence of the content with a regular document.

I personally think that you overestimated the hour counts just a

little lot

.

It is different for everybody.

Also, I don't think personality is that important, at least to me, however it may be good for some, especially if they had trouble without doing it.

I also like the greeting stage idea. I did something similar to that on my first day of narration. I introduced myself, explained the concept of tulpa, why I am making him, that we are doing it together, etc.

Just a little criticism.

 

The reason I used the hour counts that I used were because it took me longer than most people I've seen to develop my tulpa. I just want to make sure that everyone spends a good amount of time on everything. This isn't something to be rushed at all. Personality was important to me because I know I would not be able to speak to my tulpa withiout having personality formed.

Ok, that definitely sounds like a good idea. I know that the guide is unorganized, I will certainly work on that in the future.

How worn down is your enter key? I can barely read this to be honest.

 

Not worn down at all. But then again, it's a brand new mechanical keyboard.

 

I know what you mean though. I want to add a few more things regarding imposition so I guess I'll work on the format then as well.

It just looks kind of broken up because of the way Pastebin numbers each and every line. Also, do you still use hour counts, or will you change it because of Chupi's post?

I plan on formatting the guide to make it look a little better.

 

I don't believe hour counts have any kind of effect whatsoever on tulpa progress. I never really counted hours, I just include them in my guide for estimation purposes. Although with my second tulpa I am counting hours just so I can see how long it takes me to create a second tulpa after making a first one.

 

I believe people should make the choice as to whether they want to count hours or not. I don't believe it's a good way of measuring progress though, as different people will ALWAYS progress at different paces.

      Teryakywind's Tulpas for Dummies (verified 3/30/21)
       
      This guide is intended to be a general overview of how to make a tulpa and providing tips to help a fledgeling creator in recognizing responses, a brief overview of the psychological model of tulpas, and a short history of tulpas in the Western world.
       
      A full glossary probably/maybe/might be added at a later date. Any inquiries about visualization practice, wonderlands, and other forcing-related topics should be covered by any of the multitudes of guides already posted.
       
      Constructive criticism can be posted here or by contacting me on the IRC.
       
      Hopefully this doesn't get removed because I'm not sure how submitting this stuff works after GAT was implemented.

      I've made a series of video guides over the past several months designed to both improve on other guides by eliminating many less-substantiated forcing techniques and incorporating my research, and to deliver the information in a more comfortable (video) format. For those who cannot view the videos or would prefer to read their transcripts, I have collected their transcripts into a folder of PDFs linked here: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1utyb9ZPluPFxPBlR1uYsZGoqTwJ3kDyS?usp=sharing

      Don't watch the In Detail series without watching the super-compact guide! They are meant to be viewed together!
       
       
      The Super Compact 5 Minute Video Guide to Making a Tulpa
       
      This video alone should give you all the information you need to make a tulpa. It's very compact and goes over the basics without much detail. For an expanded view, continue reading/watching for the In Detail series of videos.
       
      KISS - Keep it Simple, Stupid
       
      Over-complicating the forcing process is the easiest way to gimp your progress. This video goes over how to keep your eyes on the prize and avoid ideas that would only waste your time.
       
      Making a Personality
       
      Too many guides and people will demonize personality forcing for what are, in my opinion, very weak reasons. Data I've collected in the past suggests that giving your tulpa a starting personality helps them to develop faster, and you also get to have an idea of who you'll have with you for the rest of your life before you start to make them. What many people fail to pick up on is that personality forcing is more about you learning the personality than the tulpa, and that once you have a strong grasp of what you're trying to make, the pieces should fall into place.
       
      Visualization and Making a Form
       
      Giving your tulpa a starting form not only makes visualization a more natural process, but also (like personality forcing) can decrease the average time to create a tulpa, according to my data. The easiest way to do this (and, often, personality forcing as well) is to just copy a character you know and like from some kind of media. You should probably stick to something human or personified, though, so that you don't fail to make the mental connection that your tulpa is a person.
       
      Thinking For Your Tulpa (Parroting etc)
       
      No, parroting is not bad. In fact, it's among the most useful methods available for many people trying to create tulpas. But, it shouldn't be relied on as a crutch, and this video goes over both how to use parroting in moderation, and how to employ two other tactics that are means to the same end.
       
      Getting Your First Responses
       
      The moment you get your first real response from your tulpa is a highly anticipated one, and for good reason! But, avoiding false positives while also staying open for their first true attempts to reach you is no easy task. This video goes over what those initial responses should feel like, and what many people get caught up on.

      For those who understands Russian, there's a guide describing so called "gymnasium student" method of tulpa creation.
       
      Working link: here
       
      The main idea is to treat tulpa as your own student in gymnasium. Then to organize all stuff, she got to learn/practice, in 3 levels: grade, disciplines for each grade and topics for each discipline. The whole tulpa's training process is considering as a "game of school", with tests, exams and score system. It is necessary for the tulpa to pass a test in every topic, and to pass exam in every discipline to make a progress. Introduced score system takes a role of feedback, which allows you to put extra flexibility to estimated hours per each topic and discipline.
       
      Also, an attempt to completely rid off "slaveholder" terminology of "forcing", "host" etc. Instead of that, all process is describing in positive terms of "learning", "teacher" and so on.
       
      Full English translation is possibly to come in future.

      Sorry if there is already an answer for this.
       
      My tulpa is quite playful and active. But we don't have many ideas on what to do. We tried to play hide and seek and riddles, but it was very easy for both of us since ... well ... we share the same brain. We want to know what we can entertain ourselves with.

      (I'm new to this forum so I apologize for anything I'm doing wrong)
       
      When I was around 7 I created myself an imaginary friend out of spite for my mother (NOTE: my mother is a good person and I know spite is a horrible reason to create a tulpa, but I was a kid and barely knew anything). But instead of making a regular imaginary friend, I took my inner voice of common sense and decided to make that my imaginary friend. I gave her a small personality, called her Sarah, and imagined that she lived inside a Pekingese figurine by my bedstand. For the next week or so I would carry that figurine around, and instead of listening to my mother I would ask the statue, "What should I do, Sarah?" I'll then imagine Sarah telling me what the most common-sense-ish (for lack of a better word) thing to do was. After a while I stopped carrying the statue, but Sarah would continue to talk to me.
       
      Once I reached puberty, I still had Sarah, and like many other imaginary friends who exist for that long, she began to develop some kind of sentience. Instead of only saying what I wanted to hear, she would openly challenge what I was doing if it wasn't the wisest decision. She would instigate conversation independently, comment on others, etc. She even changed her name to Anielka. When I finally learned what tulpas were years later, I realized she fit the definition for a tulpa and/or shard. (I learned that a shard is a sentient consciousness made from your own personality, like how Anielka was made out of my common sense, but I may be wrong).
       
      Onto the question: Despite the fact that she still has a bit of difficulty speaking in certain areas, when it comes to helping me make a good decision she is incredibly vocal. But sometimes, if I myself think of something common-sense-ish or wise, it'll start off with my mindvoice and my words, but by the end it's entirely Anielka's. Similarly, sometimes when she thinks of something off-topic, it'll start off in her voice and end in mine. I won't be able to tell if I said it, or Anielka (she doesn't know either). I heard of the term "blending" in a couple plurality communities and I think that is the best description of what's happening. But unlike when others describe blending, it's often triggered by an event, but mine happen randomly and quite frequently. It's not frightening in any way, just a little unnerving that most of my own thoughts on the matter somehow turn into hers.
       
      Is this something I should worry about? Or is it just the nature of a shard, which was formed out of me instead of by me, to do this? Am I mistaking my own thoughts for a tulpa?
       
      A bit of information if it helps answer the question:
      - I've been diagnosed with Body Dysmorphic Disorder and have a pending diagnosis on ADHD. BDD has intrusive, terrifying thoughts that cause me to worry about how I look obsessively (even if I look normal), and ADHD makes it hard for me to focus for long periods of time. Anielka has been amazing at helping with both. Reminding me nobody judges me for what I look like, helping me to stay on task and celebrating with me when I get something done.
      - Anielka is my only tulpa, though I tried making more.
      - I don't have problems with identity or forget who I am. 
      - I have a strong imagination and there have been times in the past I confused fantasy for reality. It rarely happens anymore, though.
      - I currently have good relations with my mother.
      - I never visualize Anielka. Even after I stopped carrying the dog figurine around, I still believed that was where her "soul" is, and to this day it feels unnatural and mildly distressing for her to imagine her outside of that statue.
       
      Thanks!
