LucidAcid’s meditative tulpaforcing guide for more productive forcing and stuff


Guest Anonymous

Recommended Posts

Oh look at us derailing this thread. I guess I'll reply to few of your points that are very off-topic because I just feel like I need to reply to them to avoid misunderstandings.

 

For the hypnosis part, I actually mean like people who have hypnotized me. Or at least tried to, I talked a bit about my history before and learned more about how it's really self hypnosis and all but let's not go into that. And of course other hypnosis recordings that might be found on the internet and such. Many do actually make a mention about your subconscious and I didn't mean that like hypnotists are thinking that it really is a separate place or anything, as I did wonder if they actually believe in it previously. Whatever it is, they use it as symbolism to make you believe you can change things in yourself using this mysterious subconscious, which your average person might buy. It can be very effective as we both know. But every time I've ever had a hypnotist talk about "the subconscious" to me, they have always defined it. They haven't ever just thrown the word around like I would understand it from the word alone, but they have explained that now that I am in this "the subconscious", I can change things about it and myself for some lasting results or something.

 

I don't think hypnotists really would have time to explain that there is really no "the subconscious" in your mind somewhere and it might hurt the symbolism at that point, even if they didn't believe in there actually being some special place in your mind like that. But I think some other kind of symbolism could also easily be used and in my case, just the word "the subconscious" is enough to annoy me so that I might snap out of it, buuuut I think that's getting way off-topic here...

 

You don't really have anything to apologize for here really, so don't worry about it. Actually I think Roswell is using his beliefs to his advantage and he really is a crafty little symbolism bastard when he gets to it. Very effective, even towards me. And funnily enough, when people read my last post he was suggested to write about his beliefs and not only did he think that he would like to keep his beliefs to himself, he thinks they (his beliefs about this ~~the subconscious~~) have no place on a forum like this which is trying to be scientific and all. So at least there's that. The reason I brought it up was supposed to be more humorous and like, look at me. I don't believe in this stuff yet I'm forced to live with someone who is into it. Kinda weird yo. You might want to avoid it and I would like to avoid making the young people use "the subconscious" as a term when they have the power to change it when we're gone.

 

Now to make this less about me and what happens inside my head, let's go back to definitions. I don't think you outright disagree with me if I say that using subconscious as a word should be handled with care. First of all, if by "the subconscious" you mean unconscious thoughts and such, might as well use that word. I think that is pretty understandable as it hasn't suffered the fate of the other word. Subconscious as a term has been redefined many times, so if you do use it, you are going to have to define it so we know what you mean with it. This community has a past with that word and I'm happy that people don't take it to mean special separate entity or place that much anymore, but I think we could do better.

 

We managed to get away from the term "tulpae" for the most part. I think we can change "the subconscious" into something better as well, something that will have an actual meaning we all understand easily instead of thinking everyone understands your own definition of it. And after we've done that, I think we can work on "metaphysics", don't you think? That term has been redefined in tupper communities to mean supernatural stuff. But I think it's usually better to crusade against one word at a time.

Eva: You've made some good points, Sands. And thanks for clarifying to us on the experiential cases you had with the hypnosis aspect, and your view with "unconscious." We presumed before you would often use that terminology interchangeably with "subconscious," and presumed you were making ambiguous statements. But since you clarified on that, the conjecture we've had is false, so we'll just leave it at that.

 

We only could go by conjecture about you and Roswell (since we can't really read anyone's mind obviously), but never wanted to make the initiative to make a full frontal presumption until we formatted the discussion to where you may want to tell the truth so we wouldn't sustain a false preconception about you two.

 

I agree that we were kind of derailing the thread, but discussions like this furthers the reasoning on why some applications of symbolism will eventually need to be explained through the lens of something more objective than subjective and ambiguous. And with that, I guess we'll leave it at that, unless of course, there needs to be more clarification on something else.

Approved, Guides.

 

That one line about the "subconscious" aside, this is a decent meditation guide. Helpful for both improving your focus, imagination and your interaction with your tulpa, and helpful outside that too.

 

I would also like to pitch in that mindfulness meditation is very useful as far as improving communication with your tulpa - that is, you can do what this guide says even without sitting down and even while interacting with your tulpa - just minding your senses and your breathing, while talking/narrating to them.

An extremely useful guide. I already use meditation for my tulpa work, and it does seem to really work well to sort of clear out all the mental clutter and make visualising easier.

      We have found that the easiest way to hear the other is to stop talking. This probably goes against the general instinct in narration.
       
      1)Stop talking.
      2)Stop thinking.
      3)Relax and stop trying to stop talking and thinking. Going halfway is fine.
      4)Relax and pay attention to her.
      5)Wait. It can take a while.
      6)Relax and let whatever happens happen.
       
      We have found this useful for waking each other up. I use it quite often because of her tendency to drift off while I am working hard or typing. I imagine it can also give your tulpa a much easier and longer time to get their voice working, rather than hoping they jump into a conversation.
       
      It seems like the one thing we can't really do, is jump in to a conversation while the other is talking.
       
      Also, relaxing and waiting has lower odds of inadvertent parroting than hoping and expecting. We use this technique to make sure the person we are talking to is the other and not ourselves, which happens occasionally. By just relaxing and waiting, it forces them to do the actual work.
       
      Note: This should not be done as a replacement for traditional forcing. More, I think it might help if done before, in the middle, or maybe after some narrating. I also don't think it will help with getting first words. I think you need a little memory of their voice built up.
       
       
      Details of the steps:
      (1) Almost everyone has an internal voice that you hear your thoughts in. Hold it back. You probably do this automatically when listening to others or watching television. When you do so, background thoughts will start to be more noticeable. Which brings us to:
       
      (2) In order for your tulpa to think easily, you want to create an environment in which they have room to think. So you want to pull some of your background thoughts out. Look at them. If some of them are caused by something you are worried about, forget that worry and relax until the thoughts subside. If you keep making observations about the outer world, direct your attention inward until the outer world subsides. Then, relax so your thoughts slow down. This should give your tulpa the space they need to think.
      If you spend more than a minute on this step, then you are in meditation. This is too long. We are visiting, not staying.
       
      (3) Our goal is to give the tulpa room to think. This means there is one final effortful action we need to relax away. The action we initiated in steps one and two. Your tulpa does not need the entire brain. So long as your thoughts don't return in full force when you stop actively suppressing them, it's all good.
       
      (4) Now we add one stream of thought. The same way you become immersed in a book or television show or your own fantasy, to the degree you forget about everything else, you want to think about your tulpa. Think about what she is like, remember her, her traits, her personality. Think about what it would be like to think like her. About what it would be like to see her. About what she would do.
       
      (5) Now comes waiting. Either it will work, or it won't. Giving it more time improves the odds. It is important to not try to do anything during this step. If you feel the thoughts you quieted in steps one and two rushing back, it is probably better to just stop for the day rather than try to suppress them again.
       
      (6) This last step is an anti-parroting step. It is important not to expect your tulpa to do anything. You are just watching. You are not doing anything. Don't critically analyse any thoughts that come your way, don't accept or reject anything. Don't make any judgements or predictions, don't hold any hopes. Now we collect data. We can analyse it afterwards.

      I posted here before about a certain issue I'm going through with my Tulpa, but I still need some guidance. I made my Tulpa to be passionate, caring and really loving, everything was fine and she literally made my life alot better. But after some time I started having issues with anxiety and pure o OCD intrusive thoughts due to deciding to quit my long time pornography consumption, I started having intrusive sexual thoughts and images about my Tulpa, and it felt like there was a second version of her which was kind of evil, I was afraid that i will accidently create different intrusive thoughtforms which be involved with my Tulpa in sexual acts. Sometimes I can feel my Tulpas original caring presence but after some time I go down the spiral again. I was in an abusive relationship before where I was being afraid of being cheated on and was made to feel jealous on purpose. I don't want all the things I went through to latch to my Tulpa. I stopped forcing for some time now, I feel safer, but I don't want to abandon her. I'm just wondering if it's my life "traumas" and OCD or my Tulpa just hates me.

      ‘Hour counts’ refers to the practise of tracking the number of hours spent forcing. It was a common practise in the past because the oldest guides instructed the reader to use them. However, they have gotten a bad name over the years from people perpetuating the idea that they are detrimental to the tulpa creation process. These fears are not entirely unfounded, because with the wrong mindset they can be very detrimental. However, with the correct approach they can be a beneficial tool that gives you schedule and structure, especially if you struggle with laziness. The purpose of this guide is to alleviate those fears by clearing up the confusion about hour counts and giving you a list of dos and don’ts to consider while using them.

       

      Dos and Don’ts of Using Hour Counts


       
      DO use hour counts as a scheduling tool rather than as a progress tracker. – If you are someone who struggles with laziness, scheduling your forcing sessions in advance may increase your productivity by keeping you on track. Hour counts are an effective way to do this, e.g. “I’m going to spend 15 hours on vocality forcing, 1 hour per day Mon – Fri over 3 weeks.”
       
      DO remember that your targets are flexible. – You can change your target number of hours at any time, whether you are increasing or decreasing your targets and/or the time period spent on them. It’s important to not use this as an excuse for laziness though, try your best to only adjust your schedule if you have legitimate reasons to do so e.g. change of shift pattern at work, unavoidable social engagements like weddings or funerals etc. If you can’t meet your targets all the time, that's no reason to worry! Maybe the targets you’ve set for yourself were too unrealistic, if so, reduce them. You shouldn’t feel guilty and beat yourself up if you fail to hit your targets all the time. Hitting your targets is desirable but not mandatory.
       
      DO remember that your targets are arbitrary. – Unless you’re using one of the old guides’ recommended targets (which I wouldn’t recommend, you’ll see why later), your targets will be based on personal choice and therefore will have no bearing on the progress you make during the time spent. Even if you are using one of the old guides, those targets will have no effect on your progress either because it’s the process itself, not an arbitrary number, that matters. It’s also worth mentioning that progress isn’t necessarily linear, so there may or may not be much difference between two arbitrary targets. It doesn't matter exactly how many hours you spend forcing, just as long as you are doing it consistently and to the best of your ability.
       
      DON’T take the hour counts from old guides as gospel. – Most of the authors of the old guides even said that you shouldn’t follow their guides exactly, referring to them as guidelines as opposed to rules. I would even go as far as to say to disregard any recommended hour counts from any guide entirely because it may only cause anxiety for the reasons listed below. Another thing to consider about the old guides is that not just the hour counts, but some of the other information found in them may or may not be considered obsolete now, so take them with a pinch of salt if you decide to read them.
       
      DON’T worry if you don’t see results after a certain number of hours. – This can cause discouragement. Not seeing results after a while isn’t necessarily a bad thing, it could encourage you to analyse what you’re doing and try something else that works better for you. You shouldn’t be discouraged by not seeing results after a certain number of hours because your targets are arbitrary anyway.
       
      DON’T worry if you do see results before a certain number of hours. – This can cause doubts that you’re doing it right and can even cause parrotnoia (the fear that you're parroting all of your tulpa's responses) if your tulpa becomes vocal before you anticipate. A tulpa isn’t going to wait for you to achieve your arbitrary hour target before they speak to you because progress is determined by effort, not by arbitrary numbers.
       
      DON’T compare your progress to others. – This is the main reason why people have had bad experiences with hour counts. People progress at different rates. When someone who's put in more hours finds that someone who has put in less hours has progressed further, they may become discouraged or think that they are doing something wrong. Conversely, when someone who's put in less hours finds that someone who has put in more hours has had less progress, they could develop doubts of their tulpa’s sentience/sapience or could develop parrotnoia.
       
      DON’T think that you need to do a certain number of hours minimum per session. – This can easily cause fatigue, which could make your forcing sessions less effective. For me, 30 – 60 minute forcing sessions were optimal, however everyone is different in this regard and many people can force for longer periods with ease. Consistency is key in tulpamancy, doing a forcing session for 30 minutes every day for a week is better than doing a forcing session that lasts for 3.5 hours only 1 day a week.

      This is daily thread #6.
       
      For this discussion, forcing will be defined as "interacting with or dedicating thought to a tulpa for the purpose of helping them to grow/develop as a thoughtform." I know the definition of forcing can change based on the context, but this is the definition I'm using for this thread.
       
      If a tulpa is inactive or dormant, how effective would a forcing session be? Does a tulpa need to be active/aware in order to benefit from forcing? Would they benefit less if they are inactive? Is it even possible to be inactive/dormant while being interacted with?
       
      (This is ignoring the question of whether or not it's very nice/good for a host to be forcing a tulpa while the tulpa is inactive, just if the forcing has less/no benefit to the tulpa or not.)
       

       
      I kind of think that once you start interacting with a tulpa, it's very hard for them to not become at least passive. They might ignore you and refuse to respond, but they'll probably still be aware of what's going on. In that scenario, forcing would likely have the same benefit as usual, they just might be a little upset with you for not leaving them alone, but as I said, I'm ignoring that side of the equation for now. If the tulpa does stay inactive/dormant during forcing, I'd say the forcing still does benefit them, but probably to a lesser extent. Think practicing playing a song on your instrument in your head vs. actually playing it in real life: they both can benefit you and strengthen the neural pathways associated with said instrument, but one has a clear higher benefit than the other. Or, it might still be exactly the same. I suppose it's kind of hard to test.
