A Starting Imposition Guide

Recommended Posts


Oh, excellent. Avalanche scared me for a second. Imposition was one of the main reasons I originally wanted to make a tulpa.


But if he would really like to be pedantic, he could say that physical objects in general aren't reliable because all of your optical data is experienced once it has been processed by your brain, so you have no sensory proof that the physical world even exists (ie your eyes don't 'see').


Well there's no need to be an asshole.

I realized it's because I'm the one making myself noticed.



Maybe I'm a bit too picky on details. But does the tulpa try to get noticed during imposition sessions? Or do you suggest she tries to grab my attention at every moment in the day? Because the latter would be annoying as balls. Oh, and should I be walking around her and examining her like I did the mail box? Interacting with? God I haven't been this chocked full of questions since we started creation...


[um, sorry if I'm being like G. Do you mean I have to want to be imposed? As in say to myself ''I wanna be a real pony!'' or something a tinchy bit more serious XD.


I've never really been the super active type to be honest either, so I just move around mess with things? That's cool I guess. Think imposition, get noticed.]

I think that imposition is done by the tulpa, not the host.


I didn't thoroughly read this guide yet, just skimmed it, and I'm not sure about this statement.


Moon_Shooter claims that he could impose before he had tulpas. It would also make sense for it to not be a tulpa-related skill, since, once you can impose your tulpa both actively and passively, I'd assume you'd also be able to impose objects.


He also said that this is a cone skill and that if you can impose one tulpa, you can impose 3 as well, you don't have to individually go through the same process again and again like you'd have to do with possession. Anyone who can confirm this?

Yes, I'm not really a fan of how she worded it. However, I don't believe that she meant it exactly as it sounds. I don't think she's suggesting that imposition can only be done by tulpas, but rather that it can (at least mostly) be done by them. Of course, I don't know the validity of that statement either, but I don't think it impossible.

I don't think she would disagree with the fact that you can "impose" without a tulpa.

"If this can be avoided, it should. If it can't, then it would be better if it could be. If it happened and you're thinking back to it, try and think back further. Try not to avoid it with your mind. If any of this is possible, it may be helpful. If not, it won't be."

Obviously a host can impose any object or scene they like. However, Mary's method for tulpa imposition is for the tulpas to manage imposing themselves. I can see this having a couple advantages. For one thing, it gives the tulpa clearer independence and less chance of being influenced by the host's thoughts. For another, if they're managing it they can make it work even if the host is absorbed in something that would normally take enough of their focus that imposed stuff might fade.


It does however require a very independent tulpa.

Yeah, I didn't think so either Kiahdaj, just making sure. Also, if anybody who can impose would be able to confirm Moon's statement of imposition being a cone skill, that'd be nice.


Regarding the method - I like it, getting your tulpa to help you impose is good, involving your tuppers in your activities is very important imo, regardless of whether it's forcing or watching tv or clipping your nails. If you know how to involve them - do it. I'd test this guide but unfortunately my visualization isn't good enough yet for my tulpas to be able to work with it.

I don't really agree with this. You seem to be saying that imposition is actually the tulpa making themselves noticed in your mind's eye as being in a certain location, but not actually in your physical vision. This is semantic, and imposition is already defined. People that actually get imposition done literally hear and see their tulpa with their physical eyes and ears.


With your definition, many people trying imposition may already have it done, but what this forum means by "imposition" is something different - picking up on the tulpa with the senses, not only inside your mind.

I'm surprised that others seem to agree with this other definition of imposition... People here defined imposition as a sort of, "forced hallucination" (if you don't follow the metaphysical theory of the tulpa being a being like that)

My lip hurts.

Damnit I wrote a post about this and it didn't get posted. To summarize what I wanted to say after giving the guide a proper reading:


Don't treat any technique as a simple thing while writing a guide, first of all. Saying "imposition is simple" will discourage people who are bad at visualizing or imposition in general. That's not the correct approach for a guide. Second, when writing a guide, make sure you are sure what you're talking about. If something is surprisingly easy, you may want to double-check things (without leaving room for semantical misunderstandings) before thinking you've done something others take months to do in a matter of minutes or hours without much trouble. People don't say imposition is hard for nothing.


Which leads me to my third point. Know what you're talking about. You say that we see with our eyes, and visualize with our mind, implying that those are handled by two separate areas from the brain, while, in fact, the information you receive through your eyes is "rendered" through the visual cortex, which is also where visualizations originate from (this is what I know, feel free to correct me if I'm wrong). You don't "overlay" things while imposing, you make an imposed tulpa indistinguishable from a physical being.


Also, you said "imposing is easy", but you do realize that there is more than just one sense to impose, don't you?

I believe you should revise your guide and method, and also start wondering whether what you're doing is actually imposition.

      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?
