Added a French version, translated by the user "dragonclaw".

Much thanks to him for the hard work.

"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."

We'll try and do a Spanish version of this if we ever get some time for it. In our opinion, this is a very nice guide.

Seems like your guide is good enough for translation to several languages, Kiahdaj!

 

As promised here's the translation to italian:

https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B6as4c2mEbxFdjUzRi03ZFZSREE/edit?usp=sharing

 

It's not 100% finished yet (the translations of the links are missing and it abruptly stops halfway through the personality step), but the first parts are done.

I consider them the most important ones to translate anyway since the warnings you give there do not (at least for me) sound as important if they are not in my native language, so to foreign readers the seriousness of that is probably not as it should be.

 

I'll probably have it complete for mid-end august. (20th?)

You have got a fantastic idea. Those translations can make life better for – in this case – italian people interested in tulpa phenomenon but that don't possess a decent basic knowledge of the english language.

 

Apart some grammatical error and "spartan" passage (check them, as soon as you can), however, that's a nice work.

I have a (I think) decent knowledge of english, but it's still nice to read about something as personal and emotional as a tulpa in my native language. (As opposed to something cold and impersonal like computers where I prefer english)

Thanks for the feedback!

I'll proofread as soon as I'm done translating it as a whole. I'll should get the gender the same for the entire text, too, since I switch it sometimes (English is easier, there's no gender in "the")

If you truly wish to, I would be happy to add it. However, please do think about the number of spanish speakers here, who do not understand English very well. If the number is not very high, then it may be best to not do it. Two translations is already more than I expected it to have.

And also, before you use this as a reason, I never want the tulpa phenomenon to become widespread. So I don't want to be responsible for introducing it to a primarily Spanish community. So keep that in mind.

But if you really want to, or have nothing better to do, and truly believe that your Spanish skills are proficient enough to preserve the intent of my words, then go ahead.

Thank you, dreamy. I have added it to the main post. I'll be looking forward to the finishing of the guide.

There are actually quite a few Spanish speakers who have come on the IRC and ask questions-- since they can't read any of the website whatsoever. And, of course, almost none of their questions get answered because no one can understand them.

 

It would at least be good for the lot of them to have at least one guide from the forum to have; they honestly don't have a lot of information in their area.

Well, as I said, if you wish to, then go ahead.

Unless of course you are not proficient enough in Spanish. In which case, I'd rather it not be done at all.

I'll just post a sample here:

 

 

Ademas, mas o menos para novatos, te sugiero que leas la toda guía antes de en empiezas a crear tu Tulpa. La razón es que hay mucho parte de referencia cruzada, y porque algunos aspectos importante de la proceso de la creación del Tulpa que no se discute hasta más tarde, pero todavía son muy importante para saber.

 

Ahora, sin más preámbulos, vamos a empezar.

 

(Nota: quizás notes que algunas veces yo digo <<él>> cuando me refiero a una situación hipotética sobre tu Tulpa. Eso es porque mi tulpa es un hombre, y no siempre me atrapo a mi mismo cuando lo digo, por mi costumbre.

Shoot, I havn't the exclusivity anymore x)

 

When reading all the messages, I was wondering : why does this guide feels for so much people one of the best ?

 

Must be something...

I'd rather be called a "fool" than go by other people's "standards" for me. It's their fault if there's drama. We need difference like food. Nothing to be ashamed of.

      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.

      (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!

      What do you think the ideal experience with tulpamancy is? As in, what all do you hope the tulpamancer gets from the experience? How do you hope their life changes? 
       
      I would say:
       

      In general, internal life becomes more meaningful. Lonely hosts get a little less lonely, and the host/tulpa relationship is always evolving and deepening. 
      Mental control is improved: hosts learn to discern their thoughts from their tulpa's and from intrusives, and they learn to quickly and easily dissmiss intrusives, and replace intrusive ideas with more purposeful/mindful ones. 
      Tulpamancy sparks a great introspective time of self-discovery for the host. Switching fronters is a path by which the host sees how much of their behaviors is linked to their beliefs/personality. The tulpa also has access to memories and beliefs that the host may have never shared externally, so conversations may happen on topics that no one has ever had the host think about, before.
      Boredom is a different, easily-defeatable beast. Empty moments waiting in line are filled with lively converstion and company. This is a signifigant improvement in daily life to many. 
      Visualization improves greatly, leading to more enjoyment of reading, and an easier time with a variety of tasks, and again, a more fulfilling internal life. 
      The system flourishes with few heartaches. Number of members stabilizes and everyone is happy with the amount of attention they recieve. 
      Doubts about the reality of a plural experience become fleeting or a thing of the past. The system trusts in the reality of their experiences, even if they aren't easily explainable. 
      Tulpamancy is a life-long commitment: the system will endure and age together. 
      The system forms a unique point-of-view about how some tulpa-related thing works, and comes and shares their opinions and theories with the community ;p

      Happier, healthier, with a more meaningful life. -J
