If all else fails, straight-up practice is usually the best option. If you have a reference material for your tulpa's face, you'll want to stare at it long and hard and get-a visualizin'. Also, you don't necessarily have to play Tetris, but you'll need to practice memorizing and visualizing something dynamic and changing -- something as simple as trying to remember what the clouds in the sky look like maybe.

 

Interesting, I was just doing that. I mean, my tulpa (Karen) is a few days old, but I decided that she would be a asiatic girl with black hair with a fringe. So I decided to search the internet for asiatic girls. I'll NOT copy any pretty face I see, they'll be used as a model for Karen's face.

 

Another question: If you visualize A LOT, does your visualization skills get better through this alone? Or you need to do specific things to advance it?

Yes, you can improve just by visualizing a lot. Your imagination is like a muscle. The exercises in this guide are just focused on specific areas that will accomplish the same thing when they're all trained.

Question. How long does it take for the average person to go from the 1st lvl to the last? I want to create a tulpa, but I am not willing to spend 5 years in doing so.

For average people, I'd say at least a week to several months.

 

Also, If you want to be finished as early as possible, put some more effort into it.

Thanks. That was very helpful. When you mean more effort, you mean spend more time doing it, right?

yup. Also, do it in large chunks, like 30 minutes to 1 hour per session for added effect, and do it as many times possible in one day. Just make sure you don't overexert yourself in the progress.

So currently I'm stuck at the first step where I know what I should see, but I can't 'see' it. How can I go about shifting focus to my minds eye? I've been trying visualization exercises now since January but obviously never having done it before is causing me some problems, I can't remember day dreaming or anything like that as a child. Anyone have an advice or guide suggestions? I've tried Chupi's guide but had no luck, and I've just tried imagining things in general but have yet to visualize any of them.

People often seem to visualize the things they read about (like a story), even without noticing. Maybe you could try reading a story you find interesting and see if it's easier to visualize than something improvised. Then, maybe you could try saying (or thinking) a description of something you want to visualize, and finally, get used to it up to the point where descriptions are no longer needed.

 

It's only a suggestion, though. I've never done it and I can't be sure it'll help so much. I'm just assuming it could be a way around this problem.

      So i started development of a tulpa about 2.5 days ago and she's been progressing very rapidly. The first day I spent forcing I came up with a placeholder form and name to help visualize ( I called her Tulp before she chose her own ) and embedded that form with some basic traits i wanted her to be built around and started narateing and parroting her responses. a while later she began to answer me with yes and no. she told me later she knew I would think I was still parroting if she just answered normally so instead since she already knew what i was going to say she interrupted me while i was relaying the thought to her. The next day I tried talking to her more and she started to diversify her vocabulary a bit with words like sure, uh-huh, nope, or nah. Later that day I asked her how she was feeling and she responded with happy. Whenever I ask questions that require more than one word to answer though I feel like i'm definitely parroting because the responses are exactly what I thought she'd say and they don't sound or feel like her. Later that day we talked about what kinda form she wanted and she decided she's 6'2", has black medium length hair, fair skin, a wide mouth and a perky nose. I also asked her what her favorite primary color is and she said yellow. We'll keep working hard and i'll post more updates as they come!
       
      UPDATE
       
      i forgot to mention that i created a mindspace for us that consists of my room and her room ( witch she decorated all b herself! ) and outside is a street and on the other side of that is a park. the street cuts off on both sides and the entire rest of the area is covered in grass as far as the eye can see. Tulip spends a lot of time in the park and also likes to draw things from my memories sometimes.

      So I've seen a lot of people complaining that when they enter into their wonderland things don't look or feel clear. I have decided to share what I do when visualizing things in my wonderland, when I'm not being fantastically lazy.
       
      This method involves cycling through all 5 of your senses while in wonderland, one at a time, slowly building up until you have all 5 going at once.
       
      Before you start, make sure that you are in a comfortable position, be it sitting or laying down. don't worry about falling asleep, as dozing a little can be helpful here.
       
      Close your eyes, and imagine yourself to be in your wonderland body. Your eyes, both in the physical world and in your wonderland, should be closed, so at first you will not see anything. Be patient with me, I'm getting to that point. Just keep your wonderland eyes closed until the end.
       
      For the sake of example, let's pretend you're sitting in a field next to a burbling stream and a forest. Overhead, the sky is clear, and the sun has reached its highest point before it once more begins its journey towards the horizon.
       
      First, reach down and feel the dirt underneath you. Pick up a handfull, and feel how it crumbles between your fingers. Feel the temperature, be it hot or cold. Keep the dirt in one hand, and reach out with the other, and feel the tall, dry blades of grass that surround you. Feel the sun over your head. Feel its heat reflecting off of the ground and the grass around you. Feel the breeze as it ruffles your hair and brushes your skin.
       
      Now, hear the breeze as it rustles the leaves on the tress and the grass around you. There are birds chriping, singing sweetly among the trees of the forest. There is a cricket somewhere in the field. Turn your head (remember, keep your eyes shut!) and try to figure out which direction the cricket is in relation to you. is it behind you? Off to the side? In front of you?
       
      Next, take the handfull of dirt, lift it to your face, and smell it. Smell the crumbled moutnains, the richness that gives the grass and plants around you life. Smell the breeze, wafting past and bringing you the smell of pine trees from the forest.
       
      Reach out, keeping your eyes closed, and pick off a blade of the rich grass. Put the end of it in your mouth, and taste the sharpness of the sap that carries nutrients to the plant. Take a little bit of the dirt in your hand, toucch it to the tip of your tongue. Taste its grittiness, taste the nutrients.
       
      NOW, tilt your head down in wonderland so that you are looking at your lap, and open your eyes. Look at the spot you are sitting. Notice the texture of the grass that is flattened where you are sitting, the soil it grows from. Look up a little further, and see the long blades of grass swaying slightly with the breeze. Look up a little further, and see the trees in the distance as they too sway with the wind. Look up a little further, up to the sky. Notice the sun shining brightly in the sky above, the clouds floating gently along on their eternal journey across the face of the Earth.
       
      As you go through this, keep the senses you went through before each step as you move on to the next one. Feel, then hear and feel, then feel and hear and smell, and so on.
       
      Apply this to your own wonderland, adapting it to your wonderland's environment.
       
      As you get better and better at visualizing in wonderland this routine will take less and less time until eventually you will be able to run through everything in a matter of moments.

      Good luck, and happy tulpaforcing!

      I wanted to share mine and Nash meditation exercise, this exercise is great for many reasons such as:
      - Improve hearing your tulpas voice
      - Practice visualization
      - Reduces stress
      - Practice your focus
      - Because it's fun!
       
      You can do this when your tulpa can speak and think by itself because it's your tulpa who's gonna lead a guided meditation with it's own imagination and voice, your tulpa will decide what you see around you and what you experience in there.
      The tulpa starts the relaxation in the beginning to make you feel fully relaxed, it could be like your tulpa tells you that you are on a meadow, feeling the grass and sunshine for example, if you have your own relaxing method that is ok too.
       
      When you are relaxed your tulpa will proceed with the mediation using it's imagination, telling you what's around you, are there creatures or trees, perhaps a garden or maybe your inside a volcano because why not, your tulpa tells you where to go and what objects/buildings to approach.
      You will never know what you will experience or see, their imagination might be different from your own.
      Meditation can sometimes feel very real and is also a great way to meet your fears before you face them in real life.
      If you have listened to a recorded guided meditation before it might be easier for your tulpa to understand how it works.

      Are you bad at visualization? Heres's a fool-proof way to help with visualization. Wait until night, and fall asleep an hour ealier than usual. If you wake up in the middle of the night, good! If not, go to bed an hour earlier. Now, when you've found a time where you can wake up in the middle of the night, start reading on a portable device or something. Something that can change its lighting. Read for three hours. It can be anything. If you can watch videos, do that. After three hours, if you're tired, close your eyes. Imagine yourself in a Wonderland with your tulpa. You should enter a dream-like state. If you do, start forcing! You did the Dani Method

      A lot of people are confused about the whole mind's eye thing, and others don't know how to use it. Here is a kind of tip kind of guide to using your mind's eye.
       
      From here on out, if you read quickly like I do, slow down and absorb each sentence. It helps.
      Now read these words in your head
      Cat
      Park
      Sausage
      Broom
       
      You saw all of those images right? But not on your actual eyelids. That's how simple the mind's eye is. If you want to train your brain to see images in the mind's eye read a book that is heavy on description and see the images move in your head as you read.
      I'm talking full on movement. Don't skimp out on any details and try to force them into your mind's vision as vividly as possible. It takes practice, but you'll be able to do it in a couple of days or less.
      Another idea is to use a random noun generator and try to get 3D views of random objects in your head. Treat it like a computer program where you can rotate the images. Make them move at different angles, think about the lighting.
      Hopefully you'll be better by the end of these steps.
      Although I'm no stranger to using the mind's eye, I am bad at writing guides, don't take my word as fact, but use it to make your own ideas.
