Delayed speech

Since I'm usually anonymous, first some basic stuff:

I began working on my tulpa on the 28th of March, tulpaforced for 70 hours altogether, out of which 18 hours were spent on personality, 30 on avatar related stuff (visuals, touch, etc) and about 22h on generic conversation. I started narrating on the 25th of April, I guess I narrate about 1 hour every day.

 

There's emotional response, and she can control her avatar decently, although I still tend to parrot unconsciously. However, she can't speak. While it's not really all that late for speech, I'd still like to know if perhaps I'm not doing something right, alternatively, if there's something that could speed up the process; it just bothers me a bit that emotional response and avatar control both happened quite early on (28h and 35h), and speech is taking longer than it took FAQ_man, who had no guides or anything at the time.

 

5 days ago I changed the way I tulpaforce, before the change I used to tulpaforce whenever I could, as long as I could - that was usually ~50 minutes, 1-2 sessions every day. Now, mostly based on Bluesleeve's and TOG's approach, I tulpaforce for 30 min each session, daily 2-6 sessions. Also most of these recent sessions were spent on that jar-filling personality method TOG had used.

My situation is a bit similar to yours, but I think half of the reason why we're not doing as good is because of narration time: it has to be far longer than 1 hour per day, you're supposed to do it throughout the entire day, instead of just talking to yourself, you are supposed to talk to the tulpa all the time.

Now I started to narrate even vidya, but it's pretty hard. And there's really nothing else to narrate.

Another thing to add is that I used to talk to her in English only, but it looks like she responds better to my native language so I switched over.

How do you know narrating in your native language gives better results?

Well, not from narration, but from tulpaforcing sessions - emotional response and headaches.

Yeah, that should be the reason. A child only learns to talk when it's engaged in conversations, too.

Of course it is difficult to find topics to talk about, but it's not that much about the content, but the attention you give your tulpa during these "dialogues".

As long as you don't talk to yourself, you should be fine.

 

Maybe a tip: You could go through your house/apartment take random objects and tell her about them. Don't forget to also talk about your "emotional connection" to these things.

As an example: An ink bottle.

- What is it used for?

- Anything important about it?

- What does the Tulpa think about it?

- What do you think about it?

- Do you have any experiences with this object?

- Do you know someone who used it?

- What did you think about him?

- Are there jokes about ink bottles (I know this is lame, but you could make one up)

etc.

 

As you can see there is plenty to talk about, even in your household.

 

May I ask what the form and name of your tulpa is?

I just call her Twi for now, she's a humanoid (read: furry) Twilight. Basically a completely human body with Twi's skin color and anthro head. She did not undergo any magical transformation though, that's how I planned her and there's been no serious deviation, aside from a tail popping on once in a while, but that's actually also something I planned (when I began visualizing her, I did work on a tail as well, but when I wasn't specifically working on the tail I imagined her without it, since it's a generally impractical thing).

 

As for the rest of your post, I'll try that, but I don't think that'll increase the number of narration hours very much - the problem is that whenever I'm actually doing something that I have to focus on I can't narrate, and most of the time I'm doing things that I have to focus on (or, alternatively, there are too many distractions, although that's probably the smaller issue).

What kind of games do you play?

Let's say you play Call of Duty, you may have played it with a friend once, then you generally repeat what happens in the game. May be silly, but at least you talk about something. You can talk about what you're planning to do, like the screen sees you running but you tell that you're going to run away from the guy who saw you and snipe him down after you've got some distance. I've watched a friend of mine do a big group thing on World of Warcraft once, and we still could talk. He said what he's doing, what everything does, what will happen and what would happen if he didn't do something.

 

Now, if you're focussing on something like reading, you can try explaining it to your tulpa. Say you're reading stuff about.. the etymology of matches. You can tell it to your tulpa, your own thoughts and such. Will help narration and remembering it.

Irish didn't narrate outside tulpaforcing/daydreaming sessions at all, and it took him longer too. I'm not sure of the truth of this bit of information, though, so I'd like someone informed to confirm or disconfirm it.

I've got a QUESTION!

Do people narrate with their eyes open or closed?

Now for my small contribution

I think the best advice here is to keep narrating. You've done plenty for everything else so just narrate. I can't see how people can rack up so much time. I started early april and only got 30 hours (total), I think I'm not even going to finish before summer ends! I think you spent too long on visulizing though and should've started narrating from the very beging even if there was no personality built yet (take a few things from Irish's guide for once). I wish the very best for your tulpa :)
