A Starting Imposition Guide


Recommended Posts

Last night, my host (M) and I were talking about imposition. Specifically, we were curious as to why some people have issues with being able to do it, when it seems easy to us. I've had my form for about 4 years now, and I've been able to be imposed since then, making myself seen in the environment. And I think we found the source of the problem: people may have the wrong expectations of what imposition is like. So we came up with a two step process.

 

Step one is M's idea. He suggests picturing in the center of your room a mailbox. Look at the mailbox and pay attention to it's details. Move around it to see if from different angles, act like you're interacting with it and have it react accordingly. What you're doing here is spatial visualization, and it's something that people tend to do without thinking about it. For example, if you're planning on moving furniture, then you try and visualize where it will be, how it will look, if it will fit there, and so on. If you're moving food from one container to another, you try and visualize that volume of food to see if it will fit in the other container before you dump it in. M's theory is that imposing works on the same principle. The point of visualizing the mailbox is to prove to yourself that you're capable of spatial visualization.

 

Step two is my idea. When I thought about how I'm imposed, I realized it's because I'm the one making myself noticed. I'm imposed because I want to be seen. So my theory is, and this is important, I think that imposition is done by the tulpa, not the host. Step two is for the tulpa to visualize themselves in the environment. The tulpa should be moving around, interacting with things, etc. The host shouldn't be playing any role in this. The same spatial visualization is at play here, so you should be able to see your tulpa with the same clarity as you saw the mailbox. They won't appear completely solid or obscure anything, but they'll still be imposed.

 

And that's all there is to it.

 

See, at it's core, I think imposition is very, very simple. People essentially have two types of vision: physical vision, coming from the light that's sent through our eyes to our brains, and mental vision, which is pure visualization. Spatial visualization, like in the mailbox example, is overlaying that mental vision over physical vision. When your tulpa uses spatial visualization to overlay themselves over your physical vision, you'll be able to see them. Not with your eyes, but with your mind. And that's imposition.

 

Now, this doesn't get into tricking your eyes into thinking they're there. Since it's a mix of your physical and mental vision, you'll be able to see through them. As I said, you'll see them with more or less the same clarity that you saw the mailbox. Your ability to see your tulpa more vividly or more solidly depends on your skill in spatial visualization, which can be trained. Having your tulpa being imposed, though, is simple, and I think one of the first things you can do after they have sentience and a form. It may not be the end goal you're hoping for, but it's a start. And speaking from experience, even a weak imposition is better than no imposition. I've found it very helpful for me to be able to "step out" and be "seen."

 

How far you want to take it is up to you, but starting imposition is the easy part.

Dude... So I was listening to Fede's white/purple noise Theta track while reading this, and I had this odd feeling while reading Mary's suggestion that my tulpa, Amy, was actually visualizing herself in that room. Mary, thank you very much for your brilliant suggestion!

Etna: Alright, I get what this is saying, but how to I make myself more vivid? That's the biggest thing that me and my host are working on.

Well, it's the host's ability to visualize things that dictates that clarity, so the best advice I could give to improve that is practice. Just generally practice visualizing stuff, work out that brain and get used to it. I can't really think of any specific methods beyond normal practice, but I'm sure there's been material written on the topic online.

I really like this guide. As someone that's always had trouble with imposition, I'm glad to see something like this. I'll be sure to give the concept a test run, and see if I get any results.

      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.
       
      Protips:
      -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.
       
      Disclaimers:
      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.
       
      Index:
      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?
