WHAT IS LUCID MODE?: Lucid Mode is a state of mind that can be entered at any time of day, and is very similar to a dream, but can be controlled in every aspect, if done right.The first few times it can be hard to stay awake, you could burn out, and fall asleep completely.

 

The concept of lucid mode it to make your mind as clear as possible and to be as relaxed as you can get.

 

Everyone has a favorite way of getting to a lucid state; the most simplistic is to be in a comfortable chair in a normal sitting position, with your hands in your lap. Close your eyes and try to empty your mind of any thoughts, that don’t apply to your Tulpa, or wonderland. I find that quiet calm music (with no vocals, or very few) can help ease into the mental state that is required.

 

YOU MAY POSSIBLY FALL ASLEEP DURING THIS PRACTICE, not because it’s boring, but because it is borderline sleeping, I would suggest setting a timer for 1 hour before each session, just in case you fall asleep, and also to never exceed a session length of one hour, as it can cause severe mental fatigue if you aren’t well versed in Lucid Mode.

 

ENTERING LUCID MODE: Once your mind is cleared you should begin to feel drowsy, now this is the hardest part of the entire process, staying awake. You need to keep your mind focused on your task, if your thoughts wander away from the task at hand, you will brick out (fall asleep). Learning the correct balance of how awake/asleep you are is crucial to getting into Lucid Mode, you need to be aware of your surroundings, and what you are doing, if you lose that, try to snap out of it, and take a break, and before starting again. Once you get into Lucid Mode you can begin to work on your Tulpa/Wonderland.

 

WONDERLANDS: If you don’t have a familiar wonderland, this should be your first step. Begin with the landscape, are you in a forest, desert, jungle or some other form of environment. Once you settle on one, Begin to craft the simple aspects of your wonderland (EX: waterfalls, buildings, trees, etc etc.) This can take anywhere from one session, to 10 depending on your level of focus, and how much of a photographic memory you have. Once you have a wonderland that you are satisfied with, move on to Tulpa construction.

 

TULPA FORM: To begin, Tulpa construction, clear your mind, just like you would, while creating your wonderland, and attempt to get into the same mindset. Start with a blank backdrop, either white or black, whenever suits your needs, and begin to sculpt and shape your Tulpas’ form to whatever seems pleasing. Start with a basic form, that you want your Tulpa to take (Ex: Pony, human, bird, cloud etc etc). Once you choose their form, begin working on details, such as eye/hair color, clothing, facial features, height, weight and so on. If your Tulpa can already speak, ask for their advice or opinions on the form, after all they are the ones who will inhabit it.

 

IMPOSING IN WONDERLAND: To proceed with imposition practice in Lucid Mode you need to have a functioning Wonderland, and a well built form, to begin, enter Lucid Mode, and bring up your wonderland, at this point you should be fairly familiar with its landscape/structure. Go to any place in the wonderland that is open, and comfortable to you, and settle your mind on it. Slowly call into mind your Tulpas form, and layer them onto the open ground as well as you can. Practice this until you can easily impose your Tulpa into wonderland, without too much work.

 

IMPOSING IRL (in our world): To impose IRL it is suggested that you have successfully imposed in wonderland at least once. Begin by memorizing the spot that you wish to impose your Tulpa onto, and then enter Lucid Mode. Once into Lucid Mode, Bring up the memory of the spot you wish to impose upon, as if it were your wonderland, and then layer your Tulpa onto it, in the same fashion that you did with imposing in wonderland. Once you can do this successfully do this, slowly work your way back to consciousness, if possible, and then focus on the spot you memorized. Now attempt to impose your Tulpa onto that spot, this may not work the first time, but practice imposing in memory, and in wonderland, will greatly improve your skills, at imposition.

 

HEARING YOUR TULPA: This was by far the hardest part for me personally, to achieve. You need to be able to easily enter Lucid Mode, and stay in it for at least 15 minutes without Bricking Out. This process may need to be repeated several times. First enter Lucid Mode, and keep your vision clear. Talk to your Tulpa, and ask a lot of questions, any kind of question will work, even something as simple as “Can you hear me?” is sufficient, just be sure to be patient. If you hear your Tulpa respond, then that is fantastic, but we don’t always hear them very easily. If you hear a thought, or voice that you think, MIGHT be your Tulpa, but aren’t sure if its just your own thoughts, IT IS DEFINATLY YOUR TULPA! This is one of the harder steps of Lucid Mode, and can be very frustrating, but have patients, and you shall succeed.

Coincidentally I went into this state yesterday by accident, had a pretty good visualization going, until I lost track and started to think about the battle of midway and crap, also pretty detailed.

 

Will be trying this, seems right up my alley in terms of what I need.

So, just some clarifications, this is forcing while lucid dreaming? Or is it closer to meditation?

Yeah, I think it's more of a deep meditation. If it were lucid dreams, that would imply you are already asleep.

I haven't had much luck with any sort of deep meditation before, so I might try this.

And then it cuts to a scene where you're sitting in a padded cell.

I've done something similar to this before, although falling asleep is almost unavoidable the first few times. Your mileage may vary, obviously, as some people may find this easier than others.

Also, this is probably the most effective way to force for those who do a session before they sleep, hence "borderline sleeping."

I feel like a little practice on this could bring some huge results. I'm going to try this out more regularly and throw in more of my opinions as they come.

This could be considered meditation, however, you are essentially asleep during the practice, its all about how deep into sleep you go.

I'm actually practicing self-hypnosis to improve on creating my wonderland so I can just interact with Eva. About the borderline sleeping aspect, I'm actually at that part where if I do a specific response to calm myself down (I do several to get myself grounded), I get so sleepy that I just want to rest my head on a pillow.

 

Like I literally get up from the chair and from the bed. It gets annoying at times because I know I'm so close into getting into a trance-like state.

 

I think another thing to add on to the whole "being aware of your surroundings" process is to actually say aloud (of course not screaming at the top of your lungs), of what you're doing to relax yourself.

 

 

Like example:

 

"As I count to ten, and even before I count to ten, I will feel a tingling sensation in my hand and I will be more relaxed than before."

 

Adding feedback as you're counting up to whatever value you prefer has helped me a lot when you condition yourself into doing it. I can actually get into this lucid mode/mediative mode/trance mode/hypnosis mode/whatever term fits you way faster than I did 2 weeks or so when attempting it.

 

And also making a posthypnotic suggestion such as,

 

"I am going to be completely aware of my surroundings during this session" can help a lot, especially if you reach the "Scatterbrain" process where thoughts start mixing in and it's hard to say a mantra in your head.

I think what makes this guide good is that people tend to make the whole process too complicated. They lose track of the imagination they already have, they think they have to completely unlearn the ability to conceptualize their imagination when they can just use the pre-determined thought patterns to their advantage.

 

 

I was a victim of the unlearning process, and what I'm doing now is similar to the method in this guide. I find it better that getting in a hypnotic state, or a state of higher suggestibility can help a lot with temporarily getting rid of some mental blocks that might make tulpaforging/tulpaforcing difficult for others.

 

Anyone can be in a suggestive state that can bring about practical results with tulpa interaction and wonderland when they realize they have control the whole time.

 

For me, it's all about conquering the urge to sleep, but what OP stated is very helpful. Thanks for posting.

 

I think if a person goes for self-hypnosis rather than the usual meditation that's just there to clear thoughts out, they can get to this state quicker (because the conditioned responses with hypnosis will make the endeavor of practicing meditation less favorable in my opinion).

This is easing yourself into what is basically a lucid daydream. If you've ever been tired to the point where as soon as you get comfortable, everything around you get's tuned out and you dream, you've pretty much been in this state, just not lucid. I really need to practice this, though.

      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.

      What are some little things you found/find helpful with forcing? Could be stuff that helped you focus better, stuff that helped you develop your tulpa, things that alleviated doubts/frustration, things like that. An example would be our host listening to white noise to help him focus and get into the forcing "zone."
