Why do you think it's better to first do one of these before narrating?

It establishes the tulpa, and gives the host something to narrate to.

 

Why do you think they should do it?

It builds language, and command over actual words helps the tulpa a lot come vocalisation.

 

I asked few tulpae (I can't ask mine, because I don't do this with them) and they report that ranting don't feel as well as their hosts just talking to them.

More likely because the host

More likely because the host stops talking to the tulpa during such a rant. If the host becomes distracted from the tulpa while talking under the influence of emotion - if it's that kind of rant - then it's easy to see how this could be detrimental. However, this is far from inevitable, and is simply a matter of focus. I, for one, rant all the time at my tulpa, and have done since the beginning, but there's no problem with it since I always rant to my tulpa, rather than just ranting. I'll add a bit into the main guide about this at some point; thanks Purlox.

I guess it can help with that to some people, but you can simply use a name to make talking to your mindfolk easier. I know this is only a guide and you don't say that everything in it is 100% correct, but I think saying, that people need to have their tulpa have form, personality or believe that their tulpa is sentient before starting to talk to it, is an exaggeration that might hurt them because narration is useful at any point in the creation process. It's true that talking to yourself instead of the mindfolk might not be as helpful as talking directly to it, but just using a name to address your mindfolk works as well as imagining your mindfolk's form while doing it.

 

It's also possible to talk to your mindfolk without doing neither of the above mentioned stuff just by thinking of talking to your mindfolk, but I don't know how well a newcomer could do this.

It's possible that you are right, but I think it's also possible that the negative emotions aimed at your mindfolk during a rant can hurt or at least annoy them.

 

Have you asked your mindfolk for his/her opinion on this as they are directly affected by this unlike you and other hosts?

What I think is necessary is having some idea of your tulpa, and those steps aid that. I'll update the guide to clarify and include these things, though.

I don't believe in that 'negative emotions affect the tulpa negatively' stuff, and I said as much, I think. Of course I've consulted my tulpa on this, and they agree. It's not bad for a tulpa to hear you angry or frustrated; why would it be?

Could you also clarify on why you think having an idea of your tulpa helps and also on how and what it helps?

Maybe not, but I think making a poll where mindfolk can vote and say their opinion could be interesting to see and let us find out if the mindfolk I talked to are an exception or not.

Is that enough? It gives you something to narrate to. Countless times are the questions asked: "I can't 'feel' my tulpa"; "Narration feels like I'm talking to myself" etc. This helps that.

Done; was that the kind of poll you meant?

Seems good.

Yes, but I think it would be better if the poll was aimed at the person taking it (e.g. by changing "How does negative sentiment during narration affect a tulpa?" to "How does negative sentiment during narration affect your tulpa?"), if it was posted separately from the guide (probably in the research section), because the way it is now not that many people will notice it, and if there was an option "In some other way (post explanation below)" and "I have never done that, so I don't know".

Only moderators and admins can edit polls, I think - avoids vote manipulation - so I added a note at the top of the OP.

Just to make this clear, perhaps I'm a bit slow, but when you're narrating you don't make a response for your Tulpa, you just continue to talk to her/him/it?

Correct. That would be parroting, which most would advise against. Your tulpa will, eventually, be able to respond on their own.

      During narration, it's easy to reach a mental block and become unable to think of what to talk about to your tulpa. This list provides you with many different options for topics to use during narration, conversation, and vocality practice.
       
      For narrating, talk to your tulpa about anything that interests you. Don't worry about repeating yourself or telling your tulpa something they already know: the content is secondary to the actual act of talking to them consistently. Use this list for inspiration, talk to them as much as you can, and don't stress over whether or not it's the "right" way to narrate. Do what works for you as best as you can and you're good.
       
      If there's anything this list is missing, feel free to suggest it.
       
      The list:
       
      All about you

      Hi. I started creating my tulpa, Ciris, yesterday and i have a question about narration.
       
      When i talk to my tulpa, should i talk to her as if she knows everything i know, or consider her as a new born ?
       
      For example, should i be like:
      "Hey Ciris, this is my aunt, my mom, my brother and sister.." ?
       
      Thanks for replying :)

      Hi! Host here, Lolli; I'm very new to the forums, so I apologize if this has already been addressed, but this question isn't so much about forcing/visualization/dialogue or anything like that so much as the means to express these things. 
       
      I'm an artist and I've doodled and drawn my first tulpa, Ichibod for years, and while Priscilla is young, my visualization of her is very strong now and they are both extremely vocal. Our new system is adjusting and it's fun, but it gets complex because they often talk between each other, or with me, or about general things that I'm not even involved in. I've been trying to think of some kind of way to channel this communication. As a host, I'm comfortable with text, but I know that my tulpas aren't some kind of mechanism for roleplay or anything like that. What I'm seeking is a way to both document some of our conversations, so that I can draw them later as well, but also let them talk more fluidly besides random spurts of words, tulpish, and emotive impressions. I started brainstorming how we could effectively talk in text without it being through some simulated bot in a chatroom or anything like that. 
       
      Has anyone had any experience using a chat service or anything like that to engage with their own tulpas without outside influence? I mean, there's typing into a notepad, but that seems like parroting for them. There's Discord, but I don't know if there's a way to have multiple accounts and use them in a room. I'm not that tech savvy (Icky may be, but he's a little out of the loop about this as well; he's always been socially awkward, lol.) 
       
      I hope I didn't take too much of your time! Thank you so much for reading! We appreciate it :3

      Hi ,
      Sooo i have been trying to understand this for like 2 days now , I am maybe just retarded right now .
       
      I understand what is tulpish . Images , sounds , intentions (that is the definition right lol ?)
       
      Say i want to say in tulpish that i am coming home . I would send an image of me going somewhere and opening a door .
      But how could i possibly say that i am going "home" and most of all that i am going "right now" and i am not sending a fantasy or just a memory.
       
      I guess it would come from my intentions . And maybe here is the problem , how in the world do i do that ?
      Like when you send your intentions what do you feel ? how do you "generate" them ?
      How do i include them in my message ?
       
      Like i said it's maybe just simple stupid and i am missing something obvious but i just cant figure this out.

      It's day 2 since I created my tulpa and I have been talking to her for an hour today ( I have been really busy )
      After I talked to her and stopped visualising felt a bit.. woozy? I don't know how to describe it. Woozy is the best word to describe it. I only felt like that for a few minutes but on to the main thing. When I was talking to her I was visualising her and me in our wonderland and seeing her through my point of view and occasionally seeing us both. I talked to her about her personalities and how she had every right to make her own choices about well everything tbh. I asked her a few questions and I tried playing rock paper scissors. I explained the rules but every time we played she would only choose rock. I'm sure I didn't parrot since I only focused on my choices. But I do feel like I was parroting like when I told her a joke and she smiled Or when she laughed I'm certain I was parroting her. How do i stop? And am I doing everything right?
