Kiahdaj's Absolute Guide to Tulpas

Within the next few days, I'm hoping to work up the motivation to edit the guide.

I'm going to add the suggestions that have been given so far, as well as some that have been given by others, and things I recognize that I'd forgotten, myself.

 

In the meantime, if any of you feel that there is anything "missing" from this guide, please, speak up. At the very least, I will take it into consideration.

"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."

I think it would be nice to have a bit about switching :)

Great guide, wish it came at the start of March though, would have helped a lot :) Also, I am practicing passive visualisation, and read the whole guide to my tulpa, I skipped a bit at one point that I didn't feel I needed, and then he started looking a bit annoyed. I read it and he's fine now. Reading the guide gave me progress!

 

I've been waiting for an extremely detailed complete guide though. Most guides seem to be focused on one stage (which isn't a problem), or a brief overview. The problem with the guides for individual stages is that a lot of thhem contrast and I find that they make me question which I should follow. This has it all in one go. Love it.

I think it would be nice to have a bit about switching :)

 

Originally, I didn't have a section on switching because:

1. I don't have any personal experience in it (that can be remedied by looking into it a little, so that won't be a problem, if I do decide to add a section)

2. I'm honestly not really all for switching. Those who do it responsibly, I have no problem with. But the idea of switching sounds pretty glamorous, so it has, and will continue to attract people who do it irresponsibly.

 

So I may end up adding a section on it (after all, this is supposed to be an absolute guide, hence the name), but if I do, I will add a large, explicit section on why I'm against Joe Schmo doing it.

I appreciate the praise, and dearly hope that this guide continues to help many people.

I understand what you are saying, but I think you should add it anyway, be it only for the disclaimer.

Those who want to abuse it will just click the search button, type in "switching" and have a guide for that, regardless of wherever you put it in the guide.

Maybe it would make the possibility of switching known to people who wouldn't otherways have heard of it, but writing a warning will probably keep more people from doing something extreme such as perma-switching than making them do something like that.

 

 

Also it's funny that the 2 posts I read after posting that I want to try switching in my PR are the ones that say that switching is bad.

Best guide by far.

"DUDE! That's wrong! You don't do that! That's like giving a kid a knife and telling him that it's a neck massager!"

Shameless self promotion!

Fancy.

 

Second time you've mentioned that.

"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."

Yeah, so I'm not sure I'm going to update this guide any time soon.

I finally got around to it today, and after typing for about 3 hours straight, I lost all of the work I did.

I don't even remember all that I typed, and I also know from experience, that I can't say things as well, the second 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."

      Tulpas: Creation, Sentience, and Vocality
       
      This guide was written to cover the beginning stages of tulpamancy from creation to vocalization in a way that's useful and comprehensible to someone new to the concept, detailing general guidelines, tips, explanations, and other practical information to help someone beginning their tulpa journey.

      A little while back I was tasked with writing a general overview to tulpae and creation.  The idea was to have an up-to-date general guide that didn't push things like hour counts on new users, talked about different methods, and other such things. 
       
      Took me about a good number of hours in front of a public computer, but I got a draft finished. 
       
      So, here it is.  The Word file I typed up originally, and a .txt for people who the Word file doesn't work for. 
       
      Input would be fantastic.  Constructive criticism is always welcome.

      For those who understands Russian, there's a guide describing so called "gymnasium student" method of tulpa creation.
       
      Working link: here
       
      The main idea is to treat tulpa as your own student in gymnasium. Then to organize all stuff, she got to learn/practice, in 3 levels: grade, disciplines for each grade and topics for each discipline. The whole tulpa's training process is considering as a "game of school", with tests, exams and score system. It is necessary for the tulpa to pass a test in every topic, and to pass exam in every discipline to make a progress. Introduced score system takes a role of feedback, which allows you to put extra flexibility to estimated hours per each topic and discipline.
       
      Also, an attempt to completely rid off "slaveholder" terminology of "forcing", "host" etc. Instead of that, all process is describing in positive terms of "learning", "teacher" and so on.
       
      Full English translation is possibly to come in future.

      Sorry if there is already an answer for this.
       
      My tulpa is quite playful and active. But we don't have many ideas on what to do. We tried to play hide and seek and riddles, but it was very easy for both of us since ... well ... we share the same brain. We want to know what we can entertain ourselves with.

      (I'm new to this forum so I apologize for anything I'm doing wrong)
       
      When I was around 7 I created myself an imaginary friend out of spite for my mother (NOTE: my mother is a good person and I know spite is a horrible reason to create a tulpa, but I was a kid and barely knew anything). But instead of making a regular imaginary friend, I took my inner voice of common sense and decided to make that my imaginary friend. I gave her a small personality, called her Sarah, and imagined that she lived inside a Pekingese figurine by my bedstand. For the next week or so I would carry that figurine around, and instead of listening to my mother I would ask the statue, "What should I do, Sarah?" I'll then imagine Sarah telling me what the most common-sense-ish (for lack of a better word) thing to do was. After a while I stopped carrying the statue, but Sarah would continue to talk to me.
       
      Once I reached puberty, I still had Sarah, and like many other imaginary friends who exist for that long, she began to develop some kind of sentience. Instead of only saying what I wanted to hear, she would openly challenge what I was doing if it wasn't the wisest decision. She would instigate conversation independently, comment on others, etc. She even changed her name to Anielka. When I finally learned what tulpas were years later, I realized she fit the definition for a tulpa and/or shard. (I learned that a shard is a sentient consciousness made from your own personality, like how Anielka was made out of my common sense, but I may be wrong).
       
      Onto the question: Despite the fact that she still has a bit of difficulty speaking in certain areas, when it comes to helping me make a good decision she is incredibly vocal. But sometimes, if I myself think of something common-sense-ish or wise, it'll start off with my mindvoice and my words, but by the end it's entirely Anielka's. Similarly, sometimes when she thinks of something off-topic, it'll start off in her voice and end in mine. I won't be able to tell if I said it, or Anielka (she doesn't know either). I heard of the term "blending" in a couple plurality communities and I think that is the best description of what's happening. But unlike when others describe blending, it's often triggered by an event, but mine happen randomly and quite frequently. It's not frightening in any way, just a little unnerving that most of my own thoughts on the matter somehow turn into hers.
       
      Is this something I should worry about? Or is it just the nature of a shard, which was formed out of me instead of by me, to do this? Am I mistaking my own thoughts for a tulpa?
       
      A bit of information if it helps answer the question:
      - I've been diagnosed with Body Dysmorphic Disorder and have a pending diagnosis on ADHD. BDD has intrusive, terrifying thoughts that cause me to worry about how I look obsessively (even if I look normal), and ADHD makes it hard for me to focus for long periods of time. Anielka has been amazing at helping with both. Reminding me nobody judges me for what I look like, helping me to stay on task and celebrating with me when I get something done.
      - Anielka is my only tulpa, though I tried making more.
      - I don't have problems with identity or forget who I am. 
      - I have a strong imagination and there have been times in the past I confused fantasy for reality. It rarely happens anymore, though.
      - I currently have good relations with my mother.
      - I never visualize Anielka. Even after I stopped carrying the dog figurine around, I still believed that was where her "soul" is, and to this day it feels unnatural and mildly distressing for her to imagine her outside of that statue.
       
      Thanks!
