How to see your tulpa and distortions

Recommended Posts

(:>)Imposition is something that is wanted by most tulpamancers but something that few have fully accomplished. This guide is a combined guide with the one Lumi showed me with my own techniques; creating what is written in this. Currently i can see distorted colors and or shapes or black and white detailed shapes, so its still not perfect but thats why i post this, so it can be talked about and improved so that imposition can be easier for tulpamancers.

Guide is here found by Lumi and spread to the IRC I take no credit in finding it or the techniques in it and i would highly recommend reading it as well, as it will help, your comprehending what to do in this guide. I have added things that i found fairly useful and things that specifically apply to tulpas. It is formatted similarly to the Advanced vision tutorial as their structure is good and it does it as well as i can figure out to do.


Also dont use hallucinogens because theyre bad for you~


This guide is also made to make a more solid imposition doable because the daydreaming method and the hypnosis method are effective but not maintainable because you cant easily do them while walking or doing anything else besides forcing~


Intro: Assuming you know what imposition is, you can skip this, but if you dont it is seeing your tulpa in the real world like they really exist where you see them, and you can impose other senses besides sight but i would recommend Q2s Guide for a Huggable Tulpa for the other 4 senses.




The guide to imposition and hallucinating

An introduction from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Closed-eye_hallucination

Levels of CEV perception


There are five known levels of CEV perception which can be achieved either through chemical stimuli or through meditative relaxation techniques. Level 1 and 2 are very common, and often happen every day. It is still normal to experience level 3, and even level 4, but only a small percentage of the population do this without psychedelic drugs, meditation or extensive visualization training.

Level 1: Visual noise


CEV noise simulation

The most basic form of CEV perception that can be immediately experienced in normal waking consciousness involves a seemingly random noise of pointillistic light/dark regions with no apparent shape or order.

This can be seen when the eyes are closed and looking at the back of the eyelids. In a bright room, a dark red can be seen, owing to a small amount of light penetrating the eyelids and taking on the color of the blood within them. In a dark room, blackness can be seen or the object can be more colourful. But in either case it is not a flat unchanging redness/blackness. Instead, if actively observed for a few minutes, one becomes aware of an apparent disorganized motion, a random field of lightness/darkness that overlays the redness/blackness of your closed eyelids.

For a person who tries to actively observe this closed-eye perception on a regular basis, there comes a point where if he or she looks at a flat-shaded object with his or her eyes wide open, and tries to actively look for this visual noise, he or she will become aware of it and see the random pointillistic disorganized motion as if it were a translucent overlay on top of what is actually being seen by his or her open eyes.

When seen overlaid onto the physical world, this CEV noise does not obscure physical vision at all, and in fact is hard to notice if the visual field is highly patterned, complex, or in motion. When active observation is stopped, it is not obvious or noticeable, and seemingly disappears from normal physical perception. Individuals suffering from visual snow see similar noise but experience difficulty blocking it from conscious perception.

The noise probably originates from thermal noise exciting the photoreceptor cells in the retina; compare Eigengrau.



Level 2: Light/dark flashes

Some mental control can be exerted over these closed-eye visualizations, but it usually requires a bit of relaxation and concentration to achieve. When properly relaxed it is possible to cause regions of intense black, bright white or even colors such as yellow, green, or pink to appear in the noise. These regions can span the entire visual field, but seem to be fleeting in nature.



Level 3: Patterns, motion, and color

CEV pattern simulation. Note that this can be quite different from real life experience

This level is relatively easily accessible to people who use LSD, and appears to be what most people refer to as colourful visuals. However, it is also accessible to people involved in deep concentration for long periods of time. When lying down at night and closing the eyes, right before sleep the complex motion of these patterns can become directly visible without any great effort thanks to hypnagogic hallucination. The patterns themselves might resemble fractals.



Level 4: Objects and things

This is a fairly deep state. At this level, thoughts visually manifest as objects or environments. When this level is reached, the CEV noise seems to calm down and fade away, leaving behind an intense flat ordered blackness. The visual field becomes a sort of active space. A side component of this is the ability to feel motion when the eyes are closed.[citation needed]

Some paranormal researchers believe that remote places can be viewed in this state and have named it remote viewing.

Opening the eyes returns one to the normal physical world, but still with the CEV object field overlaid onto it and present. In this state it is possible to see things that appear to be physical objects in the open-eye physical world, but that aren't really there.


While not exactly what this guide does it does provide an idea of the step by step process used in these guides including the one linked above


Anchoring may be useful for this and other methods but i will just mention it here, the idea is to store a state of mind or your emotions in an action of sorts, for example if i touch my index finger(s) and thumb or make a certain hand sign or whatever you like whenever im happy, over time you can do the same motion to summon the state of mind or emotion. It wont be dramatically affecting your progress nor sudden or fast to affect your state of mind and emotional feeling, but over time it can help because it serves as a light save and load option for longer term practicing. It can be applied to imposition as whenever you practice imposition, you can anchor the feeling of imposing and the state of mind that you are using to reuse later when you want.


Step 1: Optional Meditating and Relaxing.

Its not needed but it has been said that it helps.


Sit quietly and comfortably.

Close your eyes.

Start by relaxing the muscles of your feet and work up your body relaxing muscles (a technique like Progressive Muscular Relaxation can be useful for this).

Focus your attention on your breathing.

Breathe in deeply and then let your breath out. Count your breaths, and say the number of the breath as you let it out (this gives you something to do with your mind, helping you to avoid distraction).



Step 2 Closed Eyed Hallucinations

Why closed eyed? Why not just impose into your sight normally? Isnt it more indirect? Its easier to impose into something where you dont see the actual light because you already are depriving yourself of your actual sight. Something to remember is not to focus as much as what you really see which is black and to focus on the pixels mentioned in the Advanced Vision Control Guide. An analogy of how when youre thinking in a quiet room you dont think about your clock ticking so it wont register at all until you realize youre not thinking about it and you think about it because of this there by hearing it. If you can get into that state where you are only focused on your tulpa and not your surroundings do it, however that requires a guide worth of explanation by itself to explain in decent detail so i wont bother.


Either way turn off your lights and close your eyes. It is better to impose other things first before you impose your tulpa because their shapes are simply easier. For me i try to impose swords from Fate/Stay Night but you can impose whatever if you want to practice even your tulpa. When you see the particles mentioned in the Advanced Vision Control Guide focus on those, keep them in your field of vision and focus on more and more of them. When you turn off your lights and let your eyes adjust from the light to the dark you should see the particles naturally, or distortions in your view which is basically the same thing except its shape is nicer and more organized. Try to gather a group of particle things in your view and then try to move them with your will, it actually works like that, imagine them move and they will somewhat move, not perfectly at all, but to some extent you should be able to control it, even a little, and over time you might be able to get better at controlling it.


For us the particles which are bends now are often white so when i impose mine i will often see a black and white version of what i wanted. Colors can be applied later or if you want try to change the color of the bends into basic colors and then after you can see the form add shading or just skip it and do it with colors first off.

Then you can try to do open eyed.


Step 3: Open Eyed Distortions

This is extremely hard to do successfully which i can say confidently because we havnt gotten this step down well yet. We can see Open eyed hallucinations that are random but controlling them is hard for most or all tulpamancers including me. This should not be confused with floaters which look like theyre distortions. They are not, and should be avoided if possible, as i believe it means your eyes are either strained or below average in clarity, for example using glasses. I am not sure if that is accurate, but they are not part of the imposition of your tulpa


If your lights, in any room is adjustable and can dim and lighten up slowly use it for this by starting with almost no light and increasing your light slowly after you get distortions at the level of light you have used last. The colors will still be unstable and will likely fade after seconds or fractions of one second for a lot of people which is normal. Remember that what you see if you are imposing your tulpa should be controlled by them so practice with servitors or stationary things so you can (parrot)move them without causing any harm to your tulpa. After you get the distortions, let your tulpa control them by himself or herself as they would normally move when you imagine them with you- and eventually it may eventually become more natural to you guys.~

Jesus... This is some next level shiz. I take the red pill!


I know it's probably hard to explain but when you (or he) said to look for particles or pixels in my vision, I found multiple 'versions' of these. Could you please point out which one is best so I don't end up practicing the wrong method.


A. When I apply some pressure to my eyelids, blobs of white appear randomly in my vision for about 3 seconds.

B. After these blobs go away everything suddenly goes into into a grey and white checkered pattern, pretty much exactly like this for as long as I continue to apply the pressure.

C. When staring at a simple shape on the monitor for about 15 seconds, then close my eyes, a rough white shape of the image forms for about 4 seconds before smoothing out and fading away.

D. None of the above.

A and B are what you will be able to eventually do (without applying pressure) if you get good at this technique. C is an after-image : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/After_image .


Just close your eyes and stare at the back of your eyelids. Eventually you should be able to see "pixels" floating around, or colored dots. You take these "pixels" and form an image with them (remember how when you applied pressure to your eyelids, some patterns started forming? That is essentially what you are trying to do, but without applying pressure).


Another way to try this is to stare at a gif of noise (http://25.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lp91z4GeCL1qd7ovlo1_500.gif ) and try to form basic shapes in it. What you have to do is form the image in your mind's eye, and then "look" for it/form it in the noise.

Huh, that's cool. For as long as I can remember, I've always seen "pixel"-like dots in my vision. They only ever came in red or blue, but it seemed as though I was able to control which color they would be.

I never had any idea what it was, and no one I asked had any idea what I was talking about.

I'm going to have to give that guide a thorough read, some time.

"If this can be avoided, it should. If it can't, then it would be better if it could be. If it happened and you're thinking back to it, try and think back further. Try not to avoid it with your mind. If any of this is possible, it may be helpful. If not, it won't be."

Wait... this is so weird...


Those dots are exactly what I noticed when I was about 6 or 7. I was scared stiff by them because I thought it meant I was going blind. T_T

This actually seems like a good way to tackle imposition; I'm always looking for new methods since there doesn't seem to be very many.

I always thought that the dots I would see were normal and just a part of vision. I had no idea that you could use them to hallucinate.

@testing, thanks for the guide!


I think like what you stated with starting with stationary objects and servitors is a good idea, and another thing that might be useful is this.


Just as if you're trying to draw your tulpa, you would start with construction lines (stick figures, then adding the pipes to establish muscle, and then a rough sketch of their body, and then redefining those parts with color, etc.).





Like examples below that I got from a "How to Draw Comics" Book










Another way to try this is to stare at a gif of noise (http://25.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lp91z4GeCL1qd7ovlo1_500.gif ) and try to form basic shapes in it. What you have to do is form the image in your mind's eye, and then "look" for it/form it in the noise.


Woah! Thanks for the link! Getting all sorts of imagery, and had one of my tulpas formed on the left side. What's weird is that I started to imagine a lot about ponies for some reason....maybe it's because I read testing's sig that stated he would sometimes be on /mlp/ boards or something. Hm.... o.O

I can see the "pixals"

and I almost Have control over manipulating colors under my eyelids in darkness.


I was able to change from black to a scarlet red, but I didn't have full control in going back to black. .


Update: Noticing that I can mostly manipulate the color to red, I tried looking at printer paper and change it's color red. I can give it a sort of shade of light red when I focus on it. But only in a small space.

This guide lacks proper punctuation.


I'm pretty confused. The title of this thing has the [imposition] tag, but the name doesn't. Yet the guide itself calls it an imposition guide (I think?), except there's no actual imposition guide in here. Only the first few steps, written by someone who hasn't managed to impose their tulpa themselves.


Some helpful tips? Sure. Is it imposition? Well, it's not the whole thing, so it's bit of a misnomer. Also can't forget typos and the lack of proper punctuation, so it's not up to this site's standards anyways. There's better imposition guides out there.

      So I've been reading imposition guides and I was wondering if basically all you do is "paste your tulpa over reality, and how long does this take? Also can my tulpa make me hallucinate things other than her form?
    • By theholodoc
      Hi, this is a question to those of you who experience imposition in any degree. Do you believe that the imposition is initiated by your tulpas, or by yourselves? I have the sense that Flora is trying to impose herself, but we are getting blocked somehow. When i initiate, I get nowhere, and the experience is not fun. Several times, I have imagined, that Flora is upset at getting blocked, on one occasion maybe even despairing or frantic. Obviously, these occasions leave me very unsettled. Thanks,

      Hello, I haven't seen it anywhere, maybe my searching skills aren't so great, or maybe I keep missing what's in front of me.
      To make a long story medium-length, I'm having trouble deciding on a form for my tulpa, she's alright with either or, but I don't want to touch her in one form, feeling fur where skin should be, or go to grab her hand and feel a hoof, that would be very uncomfortable and confusing, my question is, would it be possible to impose the feeling of touch/feeling certain things for specific forms, (IE: Skin for human, and fur for pony) I apologize if this question's been answered or my search skills were just poor.
      I've heard very little on this specific topic, I feel, and before I decide on a form for life, I really need to sit and think about, unless I'm worrying my head over absolutely nothing, and I can impose both forms and I don't have to make a life-changing decision it just depends on me imposing even more/longer, not that the latter matters to me, I'm very anal-retentive about these things and like to make absolutely sure.
      Thank you!

      [align=justify]This is daily thread #11
      If you've achieved some form of imposition, what's it like? How does it feel to to it? Which of the five senses can you do it with and how well?

      I've been lurking in the tulpa community for a while without actually making a tulpa (although I have recently started) and I've heard a multitude of things about imposition. I'm aware that, with enough practice, it is possible to impose your tulpa to the point that they're indistinguishable from reality.
      While that seems to be the general consensus, I've seen very few people claim that they have reached such a high level of imposition. I've even heard a few people say that it's flat out impossible, but I'm not quick to believe that at all.
      Seeing as I have little to no firsthand experience, I wanted to ask what your experiences have been so far.
