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.

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.

      Guided meditations often have someone lead you through a walk in the forest or along the beach or some such, effectively describing an environment for you to visualize with words. They might even add natural sounds to help. But for a lot of people, that sort of thing feels too weird, or otherwise uncomfortable. In the context of practicing visualization, there's really no reason someone has to specifically guide you through it - intentionally, at least.
       
      Guided visualization can be as simple as closing your eyes while watching a Youtube video. Any type of video you're comfortable with really, but in our case, we do best with video game let's plays. As an example, we are intimately familiar with Super Mario 64, and are a big fan of the Game Grumps, and their let's play of it. Crude language warning, if you decide to watch them. Earlier I spent 40 minutes 'watching' the first three episodes, except I had my eyes closed. Just based on the game's sounds, and sometimes the grumps' reactions, I visualized what I thought was going on in my mind the entire time. Sometimes I opened my eyes for a moment just to check what was actually going on, and understandably was off by a bit. But there's nothing wrong with that, all that matters is that you're practicing visualization! You can almost forget you're even doing it for practice and treat it like a game, for fun. You may want to find a less chatty let's player if you have trouble filtering out their conversations though.
       
      Or you know, don't even watch a let's player. I would say the possibilities for this are pretty much endless. For video games, it may help to actually be familiar with the game you're trying to imagine (though I suppose you could also try it blind). But for anything dealing more with "real life", all you need is your imagination. You probably won't be visualizing what's actually going on very accurately, but again, that's not the goal. If you want to be more accurate, open your eyes/check the video every so often. It's not cheating, and if you have particularly poor visualization it might help give you something to work with. In the case of video games it'll probably end up being a necessity to stay in the same place as the video, but that's fine.
       
      Other examples of videos that may "guide your visualization" include sports (play-by-play announcers help a ton), TV shows or cartoons/anime (again being familiar with them can help, or you can go in blind), perhaps how-to style videos where someone details what they're doing every step of the way, and really anything else where either the talking or the environmental sounds provide enough information to form a continuous mental image.
       
      It probably goes without saying that audiobooks (or just generally books being read aloud) are the epitome of guided visualizations that aren't directly telling you to imagine something. I'm not sponsored by Audible though, so I definitely won't tell you to check out that site. But most big Youtubers will, and come with some kind of discount too.
       
      Lastly, I want to note that you don't have to be sitting in front of a screen to listen to a video, nor do your eyes have to be closed. You can download an MP3 of a Youtube video (or just play it) and put it on your ipod/phone and take it with you, perhaps on a walk. You can also practice open-eye visualization by simply not looking at the source of whatever you're listening to, perhaps on a walk. Seems like that would take quite a lot of focus however, so sitting down in front of a screen might be better if you can't get sufficient visuals in whatever activity you do with it. In the end, all that matters is there's a picture in your mind. Accuracy and content are only as important as you want them to be.
       
      Good luck! Aside from wonderlanding, this is the only visualization practice we've ever done. Ours is too poor for more standalone methods, and that's why I thought of this one.

      In the past I've put art guides in the art forum, but this is art aimed at playing a trick on your mind, so I think it fits the guide section better.
       
      So you have a form for your tulpa, but it's difficult to visualize because you have no reference images? Then this is the guide for you.
       
      Example pictures (NSFW!):
       
       
      Why are there naked people in my guide? To that, I can only answer: Why doesn't everyone have naked people in their guides?
       
      Actually, these people aren't naked. See?
       
       
      This technique comes from Japan, where it's known as 水玉コラ (Mizutama Kora) or "Bubble Collage". It works because your brain is so good at filling in missing information that it does it automatically. It's how you can (sometimes) understand what the other person is saying when their cell phone is breaking up, or how you can piece together that the shopping list is asking for "a dozen eggs" even though in your girlfriend's handwriting Gs look like Ws.
       
      And of course because this is the internet, this interesting illusion has been used almost entirely for porn.
       
      Well, let's divorce it from porn now. Here's how you can use the same technique to help you visualize your tulpa.
       
      Take a look at this woman:
       

       
      Would you believe that she's really six women stitched together like Frakenstein's monster?
       
      Well yeah, probably, because you're reading a guide about that, and also there are differences in skin tone and the pieces don't always fit together quite right, and also I showed too much of that one elbow. But this was a rush job so that I'd have an example for the guide, and the point is that at first glance, she looks like a normal person.
       
      The bubbles were obviously added by bubbleimage.net. She should really have a bubble separating her face from her hair, because they're from two different sources, but they blended together well enough that I didn't feel like I needed it.
       
      Here's what she looked like before the bubbles:
       
      [hidden][/hidden]
       
      That image was put together with Pixlr Express using only the "Add image" and "History" tools. I'm sure you can do better if you want to used paid apps like Photoshop, or if you wanted to learn to use more than two tools, but I wanted to show how this can be done easy and free.
       
      And here's what she looked like before that: 123456
       
      As always, I use Shutterstock for stock images because it allows you to search by model, for when you find a model you like, but you need her in a different pose or in different clothes. Shutterstock does have watermarks on the images, but you can usually avoid them -- I cut all the watermarks out of my example, except the one on her pants (and a little bit in her hair). I'm sure I could have found a good photo of pants without a watermark on them, but I took the lazy way out.

      So, another visualization guide, meant for those who have difficulties seeing anything at all with their mind's eye. It is quite simple and involves using actual physical objects.
       
      First, pick up an object. It can be a marble, a tennis ball, a Rubik's cube, your piggy bank or anything similar as long as it's relatively simple in shape and fits in your hands. Once you have found an appropriate object, start to examine it thoroughly, feel it's bumps, dips and texture, listen to the voices it makes, smell it's scent, see how it fits in your hand. Do this for as long as you need to in order to have a good feel of it. Once you're done with that, stretch out your arms forward in a way that you can see your object without looking down. Remember where that object and your arms are located in your vision, and close your eyes. Next, start imagining that objects, it's bumps, dips and other properties in the same place in your mind's eye, along with your hands alternatively.
       
      You should see something, the edges of the object, the color of the object or even a fully imagined, 3D object. Repeat this process a few times a day until you can see it clearly. When you have a solid feel for the object, next you should try and manipulate it. Roll it, twist it, squeeze it, anything you can do with your hands, whilst keeping your eyes closed and simply imagining how your manipulation affects the object. Opening your eyes occasionally to see how close you got to the real object looks like when you manipulated it physically with your hands.
       
      Once you feel like you have mastered this, the next step would be to do these exact same things, but not using as many senses this time. You could place it on a table and simply look at it, then visualize it in your minds eye again, moving and manipulating it. Keep this up, gradually moving to more complex shaped objects, until you are able to simply imagine all the objects you want within your minds eye without external input.
       
      This is meant as a guide to practice visualization, and it should help yoh visualize objects better. It worked for me, and I hope it works for you too. Any questions you have regarding this guide, feel free to contact me and ask. Good luck!
       
      -Niko
       
      TL;DR: Get as many senses as possible to visualizing objects, such as touch smell, hearing etc. Gradually work yourself to not needing senses for visualizing in your wonderland.
    • By Squir
      This is a technique that I found helpful, and I think it'd help people whether they're good or not at visualization. Visualization can easily get really vivid for me, and this should be a good way for building up details. This should also work for lucid dreams. This involves your dreamworld, so just basically imagine yourself doing stuff in an imaginary place to start off with.
       
      Imagine a huge computer/television screen in your dreamworld, possibly like a huge magical wall stretching off infinitely wide, or whatever comes most naturally. Imagine your Tulpa being drawn on the screen. This is normally easier than imagining them in "thin air", because it's more logical to see them in a "picture". Start with the most basic, low-quality picture you can think of, and gradually increase the quality by reading/thinking details "into" your tulpa, like refining a drawing or loading a video/JPEG, except knowing that you're downloading it from your dreamworld. This step is useful because it can start from practically 0 detail, and it can show visualization progress.
       
      Gradually imagine them like a digital model in a 3D program, rotating either them or the "camera" of the screen. Imagine lighting, the way light wind would sway their hair/clothes, and their weight on the ground. Imagine them just being there, giving them a (pleasant) interesting environment.
       
      Gradually imagine yourself importing sentience/AI into your tulpa in the "program", by imagining how they interact with their world, by imagining if they look back at you through the "screen", and imagining their response. If needed, have your information written in a list and read it "into" them like a programmer. Gradually increase the number of interactions they have with the world, situations and stuff they interact with. Throw in a pillow or something.
       
      Focus on making it feel like an interactive Youtube video, gradually increasing quality. Focus on all the steps above, then eventually reach your arms and hands into the screen in your mind. It can be invisible or visible, but it needs to be "your" hands. If your tulpa lets you touch them, do so, feeling them from top to bottom, every part that isn't awkward/distracting to touch. They should be reacting to your touch. Then, ask them to touch your arms and hands. Feel their hands on your skin, how they react to your touch. This type of interaction is actually very useful, since it convinces your mind that there's actual touch, actual events going on. Try things like poking their nose, etc.
       
      Once you get good with this, let the screen fade away, to where your whole body is a (possibly invisible) digital avatar in the same dreamworld level your tulpa is in. Interact with things the same ways your tulpa would, such as actually bending down to pick things up, in the presence of your tulpa. This will immerse you into the mindset that your tulpa is in, giving your mind information on how your tulpa thinks, since your tulpa will have to "imitate" your real world's physics when being imposed into it.
       
      Then start putting them into reality that same way, since your mind will have learned how to "impose", and use real life situations instead of fictional ones. Hope this helps.
       
      TLDR: Imagine a computer, imagine them into the screen, and start from there. Then start imagining them into reality the same way.

      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.
       
      i rushed this a bit and I will rewrite some bits of this later.
