[Creation] Tulpa Handbook


Recommended Posts

Greetings all. I just wanted to share some forcing methods and just coin a few ideas that could be potentially helpful to anyone planning a tulpa. The methods enclosed might also give those who already have a tulpa something new to try. :)

 

As mentioned in the guide, there are unlimited ways to accomplish what you want to do. Try different things, read MANY guides, and form your own technique and opinions. This is simply a condensed version of my approach to creation. Do what feels right and works for you.

 

You can access the guide here. (PDF format)

How can you do something wrong in your imagination?

 

I think that's just what I needed to hear. While narrating today I tended to get this nudging feeling in the back of my mind that seemed to tell me that maybe narration wasn't going to develop sentience at all, or that narration really didn't do much at all. I appreciate the encouragement you're putting in your guide, it's really something I needed to hear.

Just a suggestion CreativeMind, you might want to consider having the guide in a format where you can edit it in case you have more new ideas and such that you would want to add onto your handbook on tulpa. For me, I realized that those previous hypnosis guides I made could've been in one document where I would be updating as I learn, same goes for the narration and visual guide where I always seem to have something new to add or more recordings and transcripts of personal forcing sessions and from others in the future.

 

It's just that when it's someone making their own handbook on tulpa, it's those types of things where the more the community gains more communal knowledge of tulpa, the conceptual schemes might change frequently, which means it's an on-going process in your guide as well. Either way, thanks for putting the effort into this guide, and I hope there's more things you might want to share with the community in it as well in the future, just as I think all of us will do our own sharing in time. :)

Why thank you, that certainly means a lot to me. Good luck. :)

Oh, that's not a problem at all. :) I have the original in a different format, so editing and reuploading wouldn't be a problem. I decided to upload as .pdf because it kept things neat, and I had more control over what the final product looked like. ^^

 

This is mostly something for beginners to learn from and other members who are still forcing to perhaps get some new ideas and try different things. When Mathias and I really get into things like possession and the like, I'm sure I'll release a guide for more 'advanced' folk. Thanks for the feedback!

 

I'm liking this a lot CM. Well written.

 

Thank you! Hope some of it can be helpful to you.

Very nice, I really like the "letters to tulpa" idea, such a simple idea but i can see how helpful it is. Do you ever plan to include imposition in your guide?

Why thank you! Taking a psychological approach (treating the tulpa as a developing 'human' mind) makes it much easier to 'slip' things in much less straightforwardly. I think it feels more positive and sticks more than 'you will be ____'. But that's just my take on it, there are obviously many different ways to 'form' and 'create' your tulpa. :) I think everyone should explore different options and find what works for them. Every mind is different.

 

Well, considering this is a Creation guide, I don't think I'll put things like that in here. This was just something I put together for those who may have questions or those who may want to try new things and keep forcing interesting with their tulpa. When I have more experience with more 'advanced' things, I'll most likely create a different guide (in the same style as this one) for more 'advanced' folks.

 

Again, thanks for the feedback! Really do appreciate it.

I think OP is pretty much nonexistent, she seemed to have made an abrupt leave. I actually gave this guide a good reading before, and giving a critique would be pointless since she’ll probably never enter this community again.

 

It’s a bit of an understatement to label this as a “Tips” since she clearly put in the time and effort into this.

 

It’s something useful for anyone that can actually sit down and have a good read, and is definitely useful for newcomers that are trying to collect a myriad of methods and techniques to go by.

 

If OP ever turns up to be active, I would give a more detailed critique on it, but other than that, it gets my approval. Even though there’s a part 3 on “tips and exercises,” she is going into detail. I guess it’s a matter of opinion on whether or not this is a guide. It’s mostly a [General] to be honest though.

I agree it's not easy to categorize, probably because of the very personal nature of the material. Not that that is a bad thing, just less formal.

 

I'm not going to pick it apart and try to find flaws because honestly I think it does what CreativeMind set out to do, give a more personal account of the creation process.

 

I'll vote for Guides, the tips and tricks section is somewhat of an extra and given it is labelled it isn't really a surprise to anyone reading it.

      Teryakywind's Tulpas for Dummies (verified 3/30/21)
       
      This guide is intended to be a general overview of how to make a tulpa and providing tips to help a fledgeling creator in recognizing responses, a brief overview of the psychological model of tulpas, and a short history of tulpas in the Western world.
       
      A full glossary probably/maybe/might be added at a later date. Any inquiries about visualization practice, wonderlands, and other forcing-related topics should be covered by any of the multitudes of guides already posted.
       
      Constructive criticism can be posted here or by contacting me on the IRC.
       
      Hopefully this doesn't get removed because I'm not sure how submitting this stuff works after GAT was implemented.

      I've made a series of video guides over the past several months designed to both improve on other guides by eliminating many less-substantiated forcing techniques and incorporating my research, and to deliver the information in a more comfortable (video) format. For those who cannot view the videos or would prefer to read their transcripts, I have collected their transcripts into a folder of PDFs linked here: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1utyb9ZPluPFxPBlR1uYsZGoqTwJ3kDyS?usp=sharing

      Don't watch the In Detail series without watching the super-compact guide! They are meant to be viewed together!
       
       
      The Super Compact 5 Minute Video Guide to Making a Tulpa
       
      This video alone should give you all the information you need to make a tulpa. It's very compact and goes over the basics without much detail. For an expanded view, continue reading/watching for the In Detail series of videos.
       
      KISS - Keep it Simple, Stupid
       
      Over-complicating the forcing process is the easiest way to gimp your progress. This video goes over how to keep your eyes on the prize and avoid ideas that would only waste your time.
       
      Making a Personality
       
      Too many guides and people will demonize personality forcing for what are, in my opinion, very weak reasons. Data I've collected in the past suggests that giving your tulpa a starting personality helps them to develop faster, and you also get to have an idea of who you'll have with you for the rest of your life before you start to make them. What many people fail to pick up on is that personality forcing is more about you learning the personality than the tulpa, and that once you have a strong grasp of what you're trying to make, the pieces should fall into place.
       
      Visualization and Making a Form
       
      Giving your tulpa a starting form not only makes visualization a more natural process, but also (like personality forcing) can decrease the average time to create a tulpa, according to my data. The easiest way to do this (and, often, personality forcing as well) is to just copy a character you know and like from some kind of media. You should probably stick to something human or personified, though, so that you don't fail to make the mental connection that your tulpa is a person.
       
      Thinking For Your Tulpa (Parroting etc)
       
      No, parroting is not bad. In fact, it's among the most useful methods available for many people trying to create tulpas. But, it shouldn't be relied on as a crutch, and this video goes over both how to use parroting in moderation, and how to employ two other tactics that are means to the same end.
       
      Getting Your First Responses
       
      The moment you get your first real response from your tulpa is a highly anticipated one, and for good reason! But, avoiding false positives while also staying open for their first true attempts to reach you is no easy task. This video goes over what those initial responses should feel like, and what many people get caught up on.

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

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

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