Thanks Linkzelda, this is pretty much just what I need.

tulpa: Jenna

She's very young, but we're making great process. Getting close to clear communication now (still a ways away from vocality though)!

form: Not 100% yet, but at the moment she's a human girl of about 17 with red hair and a thin build.

I'm crazy excited to hear her first real words in her own voice!

Glad it may have some potential to you! :)

 

Edit: Might have to change the title a bit since I don't want to make the title too long. So I do apologize if you see a few constant changes in the title in the thread and in the guide.

I'm starting with the "Spontaneous World Exercise" and I'm typing it out just so I can refer back to it later for reference. Here's a few I've just done:

 

Thel and I are transported by some blue lights that surround us. We look around and suddenly there's a massive panorama of dirt and grass that stretches for miles with gentle hills. Thel points off in the distance, and I look to see a tower of some kind. We walk towards it, heading there. I ask why we're going there, and he responds "You will see."

 

***

 

We're swimming in the ocean. A storm is brewing, and waves are crashing around us. I grab Thel's hand and we pull each other close to one another. Lightning strikes overhead, and rolls of thunder meet with the waves. I can hear the wind howling above us. In the distance a tanker approaches, the loud blaring horn sounds, cutting through the wind.

 

***

 

We're on the african savannah. I can see elephants and giraffes in the distance. A zebra passes by, being chased by a lioness. Thel and I look at each other. The hot red sun is setting in the distance. Suddenly a rocket ship crashes in the distance. Rubble and dirt fly everywhere.

 

I just want to make sure I'm doing this correctly. It's basically an exercise in free-association, and not "censoring" what comes to your mind? Is it alright that each time I start over it's something new? And is typing this alright, considering that it's somewhat slower than my imagination so I'm just a bit behind when I'm transcribing what's going on?

Progress Report

We as host just have to show gratitude in the smaller things with our tulpa(e).

^ That right there is a solid example of the spontaneous world exercise. You described it without analyzing or criticizing what's going on, you were able to imagine your tulpa as well. You're doing very well! Keep it up! ;)

 

EDIT (sorry deleted my previous post and made a new one to answer your other questions)

 

To answer your other questions,

 

Yeah, basically all the exercises are free from censoring. You can start with something new every time the timer is done. You can go back to the same environment, and come up with new things. It doesn't really matter, it's about learning how to derive or create or do a mix of both.

 

And as for typing, yeah, it is a little slower than speaking things out, and you have that option to speak things out. As long as you can talk things out without worrying about what other people are saying to you, you'll do fine. And you can always use the mind-voice in case you can't do that. It's training yourself to be more aware of your mind-voice, and it also gives the chance for your tulpa to create their mind-voice, and hopefully the type of auditory imposition where you hear them like talking to any other person.

 

The point is, with any means of communication you're using, the more you practice, the more you'll find yourself holding those images much better. But then it gets to the point where it's not images, it's actual moments, scenarios, scenes, video clips, etc. You're literally immersed into this virtual reality that can go whichever way you want.

 

Then it gets to the point where you can add in some desire you want to see happen, and this is when you can put in a little conscious judging on what you want to do. It's about going in and out with as little conscious judging as possible, and then going back to just being aware of what the unconscious mind will do to carry out that desire.

 

In fact, I just went through an hour meditating without the exercise, because I was able to have confidence of what the unconscious mind will give me. I pretty much used one map on Call of Duty for example, and was able to do all sorts of things from running and gunning, and many other scenarios as well.

 

Hope this answers your questions, and feel free to ask more if there's any misinterpretations. :)

I was already familiar with most of this from a hypnosis course, but I never thought of applying it to tulpaforcing. Good guide.

Thanks Shui!

 

Yeah, most of the inspiration from this guide was based off a hypnosis course Igor Ledochowski made with Audio CDs (probably the guy you listened to as well), except there was a typed version in an ebook from them that I luckily found on Scribd. It took maybe 1-2 months getting the idea behind what this guy was saying, but then I realized he's just repeating the same things in varying ways, so I just skipped to the appendixes, compared to see how it relates to tulpaforcing in general.

 

Then I lurked around a few threads and guides (most particularly JD1215's Visualization Guide, Bin's guide, and Waffle's Narration Guide), and then this specific post here:

 

http://community.tulpa.info/thread-visualization-i-ve-lost-all-ability-to-visualize?pid=75512#pid75512

 

I was like "wait what?" (this was when I was still practicing those exercises and building examples) then went back and saw "image streaming," in Igor Ledochowski's ebook (which is surprisingly still on Scribd), then realized how he's basically deriving from the guy who came up with the concept of image streaming, Win Wenger. Then I analyzed the guides here on tulpa.info a bit more, and realized they're mostly just conventional ways of tulpaforcing, and I realized the hypnosis script thread and 2 modified hypnosis guides I made in the past were conventional as well (the whole imagining and going through steps that seemed to drag out way too long).

 

And because Igor and many hypnotist (probably all in some way) basically derived from Ericksonian Hypnosis fundamentals, I realized that we as tulpamancers and our tulpa don't really need to be chained by conventional methods. We just need to be trained like working out in a gym, and things come a lot faster, and you can still keep your sanity and sense of self intact.

 

Which again, this only proves how you just have to believe, because if someone makes militant ambitions to think they're parroting, they're literally just destroying themselves of the chance for parallel processing and all those other terms we like to throw around like house-hold items.

 

And after I finished making the guide, I checked out Chupi's response here (before people started to make too many skewed presumptions on what he was saying):

 

http://community.tulpa.info/thread-hearing-your-tulpa?pid=61584#pid61584

 

I was like, "Hmm..." put two and two together and decided to make the guide yesterday. (Though I'm feeling there's so many exercises I can make derived from those 3, and people can do the same as well).

 

And the same exercises I'm doing, especially if I go to meditating and just pick out random objects or just will myself into any situation, I can hear the sounds a lot better now. Now it's a matter of time for making Auditory imposition exercises so we don't have a forum of people thinking,

 

"Oh my god I'm parroting ahhhhh halp!" and more into "holy @#%$"

 

When all they needed to acknowledge is that simple neurological exercises like this will be more refined after they deal with the muddy presumptions of them thinking they're consciously parroting their tulpa.

 

Because if the person can say the words, or even type it, to give sensory-rich detail with practice, they can easily imagine the sounds, and then eventually comes what seems like a Deus Ex Machina when they wake up in the morning noticing their tulpa speaking to them. It's literally crazy how I've been doing this type of visualization all this time, but just never found exercises to augment it.

 

It's a weird feeling, it was like "hey this was in you all this time, but you built restrictions on yourself with conventional ways of conceptualizing tulpaforcing." And just like with what arbiterspartan posted with his examples, anyone can do this, they just have to be shifted into more practical and efficient ways of visualizing and hopefully mastering auditory imposition.

 

Of course, not saying guides here are bad, it's just that with how people usually are more shifted in instant gratification urges, this can probably help them calm down a bit more and be a little more happy with what's been built inside of them all this time.

 

________________________________________

 

TL;DR

Conventional ways of tulpaforcing (the meditation and even classical hypnosis are going to become annoying for most people, especially if there's newcomers doubting their unconscious competence)

 

This guide is basically aimed to slap everyone in the face (that didn't know about these concepts from the start) on how easy it really is. No more treating users like gods for their guide-making, no more of inferiority complexes with "how come he can advance much further than I can," it's now hopefully showing people that you know a lot more than you think you know.

 

Of course, this type of shift in learning might make people see how their attachments with dragging things out with conventional learning is one way, but it's going to be outdated at some point.

 

And hopefully this won't make people go "aww man, but this is too easy!"

 

Then it's a challenge of just easing them away from that anxiety, and focusing on the fact that tulpa, in this forum's muddy definition, involves having extreme emotional attachment to a thought-form or set of thought-forms and not being opened to the possibility of knowing they could shift their tulpae's sense of self with any thought form (which this exercise proves).

 

Hopefully people won't become apathetic towards their tulpa, but hopefully they now will know that if their tulpa "dies," they're really deluding themselves in symbolism when other aspects of your mind can pop them open just like that. I guess this is where the existential questions come into mind on the value of a tulpa, but I guess a way to justify it is to simply invest more interest in those particular thought-forms instead, just like what the Tibetan Buddhist have been doing in their own unique ways.

Okay so I understand what the Spontaneous World Exercise (let's say SWE for short) is teaching me to do, but what about the other word exercises? It seems like the "Word Pair Exercise" is...a bit too easy? With the SWE, I found at times that my imagination would get "stuck" if I tried to think too hard about what would happen next. I could feel myself searching for the next thing to do that would make "sense", rather than just letting it happen naturally. When I did allow things to just occur, it was much more fluid. So I have to try and put myself in that mental state.

 

However, with the word pair, I find it far too easy to just ramble off a list of objects. Is it suppose to be that simple? And what are they targeting? I can see that with the Three Word Association you later use it to create a story, so again that exercises my ability to let my unconscious feed me imagery, but at the same time I'm introducing certain items that I'm consciously aware of. Should I be doing the same with the Word Pair? Or is the Word Pair Exercise used for something else?

Progress Report

We as host just have to show gratitude in the smaller things with our tulpa(e).

Linkzelda, I'd like to thank you for the loads of intelligent and genuinely helpful stuff you've written. I've been lurking around here for a while without making an account to reply to anything until now, and I've found that pretty much everything I saw that you wrote was more insightful than many guides, and you've even helped my work out some internal conflicts I'd been having about this whole tulpa business. This guide was also helpful in that it provides not just insight, but actual practical exercises that are clearly explained. I do have one question, though: would you say it's better or more important to directly address and expect input from my tulpa like in the guide's 30-min. example, complete with opening and closing adresses? Do I need to actively involve my tulpa like that to get the full effect?

SWE, Word Pair, and Three Word Association Question Exercises

 

With the SWE (thanks for the abbreviation by the way), you could say this is what primes you to just get the muddy stuff out of the way. And it's also probably going to be the most difficult of the three exercises simply because you truly have to let yourself go on this. And by letting go, even allowing sexual thoughts, debauchery, killing, whatever, because these are things we don't go around spewing with friends/family/society commonly.

 

The idea behind the SWE is to get you in the mindset of, "Hey, whatever comes out as horrible, raunchy, perverted, disgusting, gore, it doesn't really matter. I have to let myself go and know that it's not going to last forever (the bad stuff)." Which is why when you're stuck (and that's perfectly fine if you are, it happens time to time), you have the option to think of any random object in mind as a catalyst to going back to being spontaneous again. However, it's only when you're really stuck, but when you're more adapt to this exercise, you can let things loose and your chances of stumbling is reduced.

 

So SWE in a way is a warmup for the next exercises, but can also be a challenge in being confident in anything that happens. It can stack on with the foundations you learn from the other two techniques that are more refined than the SWE.

 

 

Now, for the two pair and three word association exercises, these are shifted to make things a bit more refined, like a story. So in a way, it becomes much easier, because you're allowing the unconscious mind to connect the dots faster and make a story out of them. So while you may feel concerned that you're having to be consciously aware of those two words (or three words), your unconscious mind is making the story either way. You're just giving it the tools to make a story and being resourceful with those two or three words.

 

Imagine the purpose of these two exercises that are more refined than the SWE, you're becoming like MacGyver (you know, that guy who can deactivate a bomb or get out in any conceivable situation with a few objects like a rusted fork, toothpick, and a 1970s Playboy magazine), the two exercises are basically like that.

 

And if you're going about your day, and you go to the store or something, you just pick any random objects that you're looking at. You keep them in the back of your mind consciously, and you'll see how the unconscious mind connects the dots just from those few items (because of how you went through the SWE for a bit to get the critical factor out of your mind temporarily). And with practice, you can head straight on with the two pair and beyond because you've already made those connections, and you know that ability with unconscious competence is there.

 

The aim for all these exercises are to create a story, where there's a beginning and end (which is why you're timed). However, although this may seem counterproductive in your tulpaforcing endeavors, it's actually going to be helpful, because when you just meditate, you can just say,

"Hm.....firecracker, Wine Bottle, Peaches" and you can go nuts with the imagination, or you just use pure willpower (but you know things come by naturally now). Because again, you don't have be constrained on just those few objects, they're just there to stack onto what you're already learning. Ultimately, you'll get to the level where you don't really run out of ideas because you'll see the unconscious mind is going to pick random objects just like that. You're just the conduit in having those objects temporarily until you see your attempts at the SWE becoming more fluid as the other two after it.

 

There's no right or wrong way to stack these exercises, you can do the last one, then do SWE, and then do the two pair exercise. And you're not limited to just that, you can even challenge yourself with 10 objects, 20 objects, whatever you put your mind into, but the point is, when you can be resourceful like MacGyver, and can look around your environment and formulate inspiration from a few objects, it adds on to building those neurological connections to have better visualization and narration/storytelling.

 

Which is why those exercises are supplements, and you'll inevitably break those rules (which is what you're supposed to do if you want to increase creative potential). Whatever exercise you do, you're improving yourself either way.

 

Also, with word pairs, (like Daisy and Fairy), you'll notice how things associate with those two words (field meadows, trees, magical forest, huts, houses, grass, etc.). They help with you keeping things in circle but also spontaneous because you know balance can happen if you want it to or not. If the word pair is easy, that's a good thing, THAT is what you want, and it's something to strive for with the SWE (that you find yourself stumbling a bit at times).

 

Hope this clarifies these exercises and their purpose a bit more, and these are good questions, so please don't be shy to ask more if anything else comes to mind.

 

Linkzelda, I'd like to thank you for the loads of intelligent and genuinely helpful stuff you've written. I've been lurking around here for a while without making an account to reply to anything until now, and I've found that pretty much everything I saw that you wrote was more insightful than many guides, and you've even helped my work out some internal conflicts I'd been having about this whole tulpa business. This guide was also helpful in that it provides not just insight, but actual practical exercises that are clearly explained. I do have one question, though: would you say it's better or more important to directly address and expect input from my tulpa like in the guide's 30-min. example, complete with opening and closing adresses? Do I need to actively involve my tulpa like that to get the full effect?

 

It's optional if you want your tulpa to engage and be interactive with the narration, if you don't feel that they're vocal enough to say a few responses, you can simply just allow yourself to acknowledge their existence and just know they're listening to you. You never know what may happen, one attempt at narration where you're just letting them listen to you, and suddenly they pop in and add something interesting. The narration example I did was to get yourself in that mentality of being a good narrator/storyteller just like the previous exercises.

 

So let's say you were to do the SWE for 1 minute sessions, obviously, to go about that practically, it's best describing the environment and the things you do, and don't worry too much about the conversation (since those might take a little more conscious processing in terms of YOU saying things, not your tulpa that will eventually say things by themselves). But when you do those longer sessions (30 minutes to an hour, or even more), you have a little more freedom to let whatever conversations pop in. Because the longer the session (as in time range) the more you can add in conversation and questions and such, but you don't have to if you don't want to.

It's just for those people who know for sure they can have their tulpa engaged.

 

 

The challenge for me personally is getting myself to hear the sounds in these sessions, which is actually getting so much easier now, so in the future, I can make auditory imposition exercises, but I think you guys can already deduce how that would be like.

 

Just remember that the shorter the time range, the more you have to be descriptive rather than letting a few conscious judging happen time to time. But in any time range, you want to be able to describe things rather than analyze things, because you're aiming for visualization and getting used to other senses being incorporated to them.

 

Basically - the mindset overall is "sensory-rich description," but not hanging onto it with perfection.

 

The more you do this, the more you realize you can simultaneously add conversations and such while still being able to have sensory-rich description.

 

Instead of "Red dress," you end up seeing it as "Red-laced 1960s dress." But again, it doesn't have to be perfect, but you'll notice what seemed to take more effort in describing becomes quicker.

 

Hope this helps, and be sure to keep asking any more questions you may have.

      I have read through a few blogs today and talked to a few of the users on the IRC channel to find out a common problem is that some are just not able to render their entire tulpa. They are only able to render a portion of the body, face, torso or legs. i learned a exercise during art school that helped us render entire images in our heads without forgetting bits, distorting portions or mixing things up.
       

      Take a look at this picture above and pay close attention to the lamp pole that has the cross walk signs on it.
      I want you to study this pole as best as you can. Try and study the stain right below the Hand stop sign. The bolts and everything about it. Now take about 10 minutes and think about this pole with your eyes closed. Only this pole.
      Try and cutoff other all other information from your brain such as how your day was or any other distraction. Its ok if you talk to yourself about the pole, I did this. "This pole is tall and dark. I see the red hand and the blackness next to it". As long as your focus remains on this single object.  You will need to focus on this pole for an average of 10 minutes about five times.  Be sure to examine the photo in between exercises. This process should Last you a day or two. You can attempt to do this first step all in an hour or half a day. This will not work. I don't know why, it just doesnt.
       
      now that you have completed the first step of memorizing the pole with the red hand sign start to examine the sidewalk. Only the sidewalk, ignore the trees, garbage bin and  all other objects on this sidewalk. If it helps you go ahead and imagine a flat concrete area where the building should be. focus on the edge front of the sidewalk and study this in as much detail as you have the pole. This process will take much much longer than the first step. Now close your eyes and do the same that you did with the pole but try and render the sidewalk as well. Keep both objects in as much detail as you can. You will have trouble focusing on tiny details such as where the paint has eroded on the sidewalk or the bolts on the pole. Focus on what you can and Render what you can. This will take much more than five or ten minutes. Spend at least fifteen to twenty minute each exercise. This time instead of doing it X many times you must do this until you can fully render the sidewalk and pole. This step may take three days to an entire week. Do not give up! Learning this can be far more useful than just visualizing your tulpa!
       
      Now rinse and repeat this step through the entire photo adding more and more objects each time. You can take your time by adding one object each session or you can add several objects during each session. The end result should you being able to Render that entire photo in your mind with ease. This first photo may of taken you up to two to three months to render. That is ok. Now I want you to find a new photo and do the same thing. It should be exponentially easier than the first. Your mind is already starting to examine and visualize multiple things at once. Not only are you able to render things better in your mind but your visual memorization has increased exponentially.

      This guide is one of many I hope to make
       
      This one is about visualisation and has some tips and tricks to help you guys out. It is a bit spasific but for some it will help. Though I hope to help many.
       
      I've been practicing tulpamancy since 2008 and visualisation since 2007 it's been a good journey and still going. I really want to share with you guys this guide
       

      Created by Chadack Inspired by Oillin my mentor.
       
      What is a tulpa.

      A tulpa is a thought form made sentient, an individual inside your mind who is capable of self-thought and feeling something you can see and touch. A Personal companion for life, so once you make one and it becomes sentient and independent. It will be very hard to undo what you have created some say impossible. Tulpas are created over time… Lots of time. Do not expect these methods to work for you overnight, over days, even over many months. Just a few helpful words to help you throughout your journey.
      Don’t have a negative attitude when you start off. You, yourself have to believe you can do it or it probably won’t happen. Take your time, do not rush, like with art, or anything. Creating a tulpa takes time, if you rush you can run into many problems. Do not compare yourself to other people and their progress with their tulpas, this will only give you negative feelings and might even stop you from completing your tulpa. Remember everyone is different. Your mind doesn’t work the same as that Joe bloke down the road, and best of all remember to really
      think about why you are doing this… 

      Reasons not to create a tulpa in my opinion… 
       
      I believe you should not create a tulpa for these reasons: 
       
      To create one with the intent that your tulpa WILL! Be like this character because chances are it won’t. (Tulpas change as they grow. Don't give them backstories.) To replace Physical friends (A tulpa is not a replacement for this you still need physical touch and emotion from others) don't make one just because your lonely. To replace yourself (Just don’t It's not healthy for the tulpa, and is definitely not healthy for yourself or your family… this is just selfish.) Just because you want to, to remove it later or forget about it later. To through negative feelings on it, or harm it out of anger. (This would be very similar to me putting you in a box and whenever I am feeling angry I would beat you up, imagine how that would make you feel)  Your sexual needs or lust.  
      I do not list reasons to create them because there are too many of them, However I cannot stop you from creating one for the above reasons. I strongly urge you to think about your future and how you and you tulpas will journey together, having a tulpa is a life choice not a temporary phase. It's a commitment.
       
      Please keep in mind that if you are feeling sad or any negative emotions they will leak/bleed into your creation. Your tulpa needs positive emotions to create what I consider to be a healthy successful tulpa. 
       

      Visualisation  

      Book 1 
        
      First Steps, Visualisation 
       
      “A drop of water overtime creates a stagnant pond.” -Oillin 
       
      “Guide – Showing you a list of paths. But you will walk them differently then the next.” Chadack. 
       
      About about me.  I've been practicing tulpamancy since 2008 and have been practicing visualisation since 2007. I have three tulpas I believe to be fully formed I can do almost anything with them. I believe that if you want tulpas you need to think about it seriously and make the proper commitment. And you have to want the tulpa or it really won't happen. 
       

      Part One
       
      Visualisation
      - The formation of a mental image of something.

      The practice of Standard Visualisation.

      What I hope to achieve in this part of the guide is to help you out with your skills on visualisation This means actually visualising your tulpas and objects around you, and also a few other fun things you can do with them. I believe this is key to starting off, however you do not have to start with this part, you may start off with the _____ book of this series, __________________ this will also help you impose your tulpa and general things around you, actively and passively. This first part is just to practice and increase your visual skills… So… Clear your mind, and start. 
       
      It might help the take noticeable calm and steady but slow breathing exercises while doing any meditation work. 
       
      I am going to start off with some simple things to do. Tips n’ tricks, so to say. However, I will point out that this will not work for everyone as everyone’s mind is different. But this doesn't mean you cannot work on it. 
       
      1So first off let’s start with changing an object. Choose a simple object something smooth or square shaped, something familiar to you. “I chose a Coke can.” First off find a place you are not going to be distracted by anything, technology, books, drawing, anything. You need silence or as close to it, this will help you immensely. You can go to your local budist temple or local park. Just make sure your safe and comfortable.
       
       
      1Once you have found the right place where you are most comfortable and at peace and not going to be distracted or disturbed, Get yourself into a meditative state, do this by picturing the centre of your mind/brain/head, concentrate on that and that alone, you should feel an energy/feeling build up as you calm down over time the more at peace you feel the more calm and clear minded you'll be. Look at the object you have selected and make that object in your mind then, look at the place where you are going to place the object. Once you have pictured this object in your mind as you see it in front of you, what you are going to do is turn it into a different shape/energy ball/whatever, your choice. So changing this object isn’t just  picturing another object, I want you to literally stretch it, mould it, form it into another object Changing its form, but keeping its colours and picture. Do this in your mind at first. The more you practice this the easier it will be. Once you have done this move on. 
       
       
       
      2Once you can picture your item, turn your item around so you get a good 3D look at it, only do this if you want to have a good grasp of 3D space. Don’t try to imagine it all at once, all the way around it, just do it one side at a time. Then try to imagine it turning in your mind… When you do this successfully repeat the same thing above, change the objects form, in 3D or as a 2D object in a space, turn it into whatever you want. When you can do this, move on. Do this untill you can be distracted for a while or  thrown off concentration then return back to it. Repeat until it comes naturally. If so, then it is time for you to impose your item onto an area around you, remove the item out of your site completely, and impose the image onto where the item was if it makes it easier have the item in your site just impose your image next to it. Whatever your image is picture it next to your selected item. Whatever you choose. Know that you will have to do this without the item being in your view, once you have a grasp on this and you can see the item as clear as day move the object, turning it around, rotate your item so you see it move around and around. You can either do it with your hands or with your mind. If you do it with your hands and can feel or start to feel the object you are doing well. Please keep in mind what is Real life and what is in your mind, this is very important. 
       
      Once this is done and you are sure you can see it Have a small break and try this again, try the next part when you do all this naturally 
       
       
      Static imposing while moving. 
       
       
      First off make sure you are in a comfortable environment without any distractions, close the windows the least movement outside as usual. Example I have a rat’s cage in our room, I would either cover it or move it out of site or out of the room completely. So it does not distract me. Or turn off your phone. Picture your chosen item in your mind, rethink how it looks from all angles. Simply place the item on the in front of you. Once you have done this I would like you to turn around, away from where it is. Then picture where it is, picture the background as detailed as possible, especially the area around the item where you have put it. See it in your mind that you have that item there. When you have done this, turn back around and impose it there, try turning around and seeing it there until you get a little dizzy. This is hard to do, if it isn’t then, well done. Practice this till you can see it completely clear. 
       
      Personal tip.
       
      One thing that helped me personally is putting the actual item there and looking at it for a bit then removing the item, kind of cheating but it worked well for me. 
       
      Feeling your object 
       
      Take your object in your hands and feel around it. Get a good grasp on how it feels. The temperature of it, literally concentrate on every small detail. Then take what you have learnt and apply it to the object in your mind. Then apply it to the object you have imposed on the ground, by picking it up. 
       
      Do this till you can do it naturally. 
       
      If you have trouble doing this use your visualising skills while holding the item. This often helps. 
       
          
       
       
      Imposing while moving.

      The next step is as it says, Imposing while your moving. Walk back and forth and impose it at the same spot using the same method. First off get yourself into a mediative state but be aware of your surroundings this time. Be aware of where you are in reality and make sure you know it. Ignore all sounds happening, smells, and such but keep a visual on all the items around you. Repeat this till you can see it while you move. 
       
      Imposing Sound. 
       
      This can be hard for some. But easy for some too. Some people don't do this at all. Me personally I have done this but not perfectly. 
       
      Think about it like this. A musician who knows how to tune his instrument by ear knows what each note sounds like this is similar to what you need to do. 
       
      If you want to do this you'll be able to play drums in your mind. Create music and fun with your tulpas or even just yourself. Move on to part two if you don't.   Start again with a calm meditative mind. Breathing is key here listening to what your going to imprint on an object in your mind. Let's say… you want the sound of a bell. What ever sound you choose look up one you like and play it back to you 10 times. Then imprint it onto the object your wanting to sound like that. This is up to you how you do this. I use a stick to hit the bell to make the sound. This links the sound to the object. This seams lien pretty simple stuff but it's actually hard when you have more precise sounds required to be played. Playing a song is easy to listen to it and then replay it in you head. Songs are simple and easy to use don't start with them. The brain does this naturally. You know what the wind sounds like. So you don't have to work on stuff like that unless it's your wonderland description. 
       
       
      Part Two
       
      Create your wonderland.
      Some of this is advanced.
       

      What is a wonderland? (Optional)
       
      The wonderland is an optional place or your tulpa to live in. Though some tulpamancers choose not to have one, (Oillin my mentor, didn’t have one. Though he did mention it.) The wonderland can be anything you like, from a copy of your room or house, to a medieval castle, or Spaceship literally anywhere though somewhere safe and comfortable for you as it's going to be the home for your tulpa.. It’s your head and yours and your tulpas space so you choose what you want to do with it. Wonderlands are created over time, and for me, are always changing depending on what’s happening, or what time of year it is. Though most people keep this simple. Some choose to have a simple wonderland one where not much is happening and some choose to have a wonderland where they have so called “NPC’s” (non playable characters) all the way up to entire cities or even a whole continent. Wonderlands are to be as detailed as you want them to be. Think about everything. If you end up with “images or flashes, short videos” of your wonderland popping into your mind when you think about it. Then you have not worked hard enough on it. If you end up being able to walk through this imaginary space then your doing well. Keep reading if you want one. 
       
       
      How to create a wonderland 
       
      “All objects start as a thought. We create them, to use them, nothing is useless, nothing is folly”  
       
      Simply start with something familiar to you, a good start to a wonderland is 4 walls and a roof, i.e. an empty room. Some say they do not want to do it this way, because they don’t want their tulpa to live in a “box” So please keep in mind that this isn’t permanent, you and even your tulpa can change it later. So, whatever you are going to create choose something that works for you. I recommend doing this if you are going to do this before you start making your tulpa in general. 
       
      Think about every detail in your wonderland, trees, windows, cups, plates, books. (Will get into that later) Think and picture items you use every day, to get your tulpa familiar with them when they come. Assuming at this point you are new and starting off with no tulpas. If it helps grab objects in your room and place them down in your wonderland, that is always fun to do, create new ones off images and 3D models on the internet in games. But remember that this place is going to be the first home for your tulpa. You don’t have to make it nice but you do have to make it whole. 
       
      Mark things as floor and wall, so solids think about how it feels the materials it’s made of, how cold or hot/room temperature the room is or place. When I say think of everything, I literally mean everything. 
       
      Books.
       
      With books, it’s easy to just read it and say “my tulpa is reading, this” no, this only applies if you and your tulpa is reading it in real life. I’m talking about actually putting whole books into your wonderland. Start off with imaging the cover of it then start reading it, writing each word down in the book itself in the wonderland till you know it off by hart, you may have to do this multiple times. This will take a long time. Same goes for magazines/comics, only do the same with images. Picture them there, each page, place the picture on it. This normally works of you have a photographic memory. Don't get to much hope up it didn't work to well for me. 
       
      Computers. Laptops, phones. Electrical interactive devices.
      Computers are all about linking, you don’t need to know how a computer actually works, it would take up too much effort and would just be a waste of time, if you did it that way. Think of computers as literal “magic” The computer just “works.” You have your keyboard mouse, and file system on your computer files a literally just folders that are “linked” So say you click on… “tulpa – documents – Pictures – “file” each “– “is a link that you will make, it’s really easy actually, just work on linking them together. 
       
      What does it mean if I don’t have one? 
       
      As I have a wonderland and do not know this experience, I can only give you my opinion, that they would live in the real world with you, obvious. Not real as in “there, anyone can see” as in you would impose them around you, you might have an area for them to sleep, they might choose one for example, on your bed or something. This simply means you become more reliant on your visualisation skills. Visualising them outside of your mind. Hence why I think it’s so important to first work on those skills, or even just staying in the front. The place where a tulpa will be able to see and hear though your conscious experience. 
       
       
       
      With visualisation skills like these you can really use them to enrich your mental environment with fun activities and create your own world mentally or around you visually. If you apply them to your tulpa you'll be able to see your tulpa sitting standing sleeping right in front of you. 
       
      Imposition. A little… 
       
      If you can feel your tulpa in an external way or you might have a slight feeling your tulpa is on the bed that too is apart of visualisation. As your tulpa is being imposed in the real world. You can actually apply any of these methods to feel, see and hear your tulpa, even directionally in the physical world.

      For a few months me and a soulbond have been wanting to make a child. We aren't in a relationship, he just wants me to make him a son 'for us'. We had it planned for a while, got everything ready for this child in headspace. A room, a name, how he should look. We kind of argue on personality. Things I make in headspace, things that are supposed to be alive like plants and smaller living critters tend to vanish or just disappear so I'm wary on making a child if something happens to him or he just goes missing due to whatever causes this to happen. Altho with someone watching him maybe that wouldn't happen. Could anyone give advice on 'making' a child and keeping him from fading out? (Sorry if I don't get any terms right or not try to use any terms at all, I come a background of soulbonding and multiplicity/plurality so I try to keep stuff general.)

      Hello everyone, my first post here, so I apologise if im doing something wrong.
      I came here to ask for help from fellow Tulpamancers who might have experienced something similar.
      I always had problems with OCD and visual intrussive thoughts.
      I had a messed up past wich disturbed and perverted my mind, My Tulpa has been helping me alot but for the last few weeks my OCD targetted my Tulpa, she says that it doesnt effect her and that I should trust her, but sometimes the anxiety gets the best of me. I get images of someone raping and harming my Tulpa in our Wonderland wich really scares me. My question is, can my disturbed mind effect my Tulpa and can my mind accidently create bad Tulpas wich might harm my Tulpa?

      Thread #7
       
      Today's thread is about forms! Specifically, having more than one "main/base" form, could be for tulpas or hosts. 
       
      In our system, mostly everyone has one main form that they use to represent themselves. Any other form they might use would tend to be just for fun and not really any sort of symbolic representation of their identity like their main form is. They have to consciously think about other forms to use them, while their base form is quite natural and takes no effort.
       
      I, on the other hand, have two base forms that I swap between without any effort or even really thinking about it, based on whatever situation I'm in. If I'm fronting or in a more serious context, or I want to do something like appear more equal to my headmates, I'll probably use my human form. If I'm just hanging out with someone else fronting, I'll use my dragon form. Both forms are equal representations of my identity, so I'd use pictures of either of them to show "me," while my systemmates would only use the one base form.
       
      The reason I think I have two is because when I first became sentient, I created a baby dragon form, and my intent was to stick with that one. However, my systemmates encouraged me to create a human form as well so that I could feel equal to them, so I did. Instead of discarding the old form, I just ended up swapping between the two, and it's been that way ever since. It might have been easier for me to develop a second base form because I was so young, but that's not to say older tulpas can't develop a second base form, it's just a theory for myself. I guess the way you develop two base forms is to move between the two often enough for it to become natural, just another part of your life.
       
      Do you or any of your headmates have more than one base form that can just be naturally swapped between without much thought? What situations do you use each form? What do you think goes into the development of two or more base forms, rather than one? Do any of your headmates have no base form? Why/how?
