Teryakywind's "Tulpas for Dummies" General Creation Guide


Recommended Posts

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 personally think this is a pretty good general guide. It looks long at a glance but each section is actually relatively punctual and well-worded. The formatting is excellent. Content-wise it might not necessarily be groundbreaking, but it serves as a handy reference to newcomers - and as a bonus has some information about paracosms that is not common on tulpa.info. I don't really have any complaints about it; good job.

 

EDIT: Consider this my GAT approval vote.

The paracosms bit is Alyson and Kronkleberry's work; they didn't feel it was worth making as a separate guide and I didn't want to cover wonderlands, etc. too much, so they added it on when it was originally published.

As far a general guides go, this is lovely. It covers all of the basics that a beginner needs and is written in a very clear and easily understandable way. That and it was actually a very easy and pleasant read.

Gets my vote as well, gives a nice overview of things to leave some subjectivity for the newcomers to realize that they'll have to learn how to make their own twist into the tulpa creation and wonderland/paracosm process.

Well I'd suggest you to drop the indentations, especially on those one line long paragraphs of yours. It looks silly. Hanging idents might look better anyways.

 

Also because the paracosm thing is a part of this guide, I'll just go ahead and say paracosm =/= detailed wonderland. Paracosm = detailed conworld. Or whatever you want to call conworlds, it has multiple names but I'm lazy. Detailed conworld =/= wonderland, but it might be, assuming your conworld is in fact a wonderland as well. For some, that's exactly how it is. For others, it's not. So that part of the guide is silly and full of redefinitions. I don't know what Tolkien actually did but maybe someone who has read more of his interviews knows better, but I can say that yes, Middle Earth is a paracosm. It's a detailed conworld. But I don't know if it actually was a wonderland and he visited the place in his imagination like I were to visit my wonderland. I know my conworlds aren't wonderlands, so no, it's not a given. Stupid redefinitions 0/10 would not read again.

 

The actual Tulpas for Dummies guide though, approved.

Keep in mind that what is written here is a GUIDE; most of the steps don’t have to be done in any particular order, and you’re actually encouraged to improvise and come up with new methods of doing things that may work better for you. The steps and processes from here on is merely my recommendation based on my creation experiences. Creating a tulpa is a highly individual process,

 

Due to this important disclaimer, Mayeel's input, the reference to a form being technically not needed, among other things, this is not the worst guide in existence, long as it may be.

 

Approved.

That paracosm guide seems like something for people who already have fully developed tulpas, and should be a separate guide in my opinion. I'll approve of this once the paracosm section has been removed.

Split it up and it'll do really well. The paracosm guide should probably be it's own thread, that way discussion won't get mixed up with any comments on the "Tulpa for Dummies guide."

 

Besides that, approved.

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

      French Version:
      dragonclaw has kindly taken much time to translate this entire guide into French. Currently, this version contains all sections that can be found in the original English version, but lacks the revisions done to other sections in the past.
       
      Italian Version:
      This version, translated by the user "dreamy" (you'll always be noobdreamer to me) should currently be up-to-date, besides the most recent English update.
       
      Russian Version:
      This version of the guide was recently translated by the user Leopold, of his own accord. Much thanks to him for the hard work.
       
       
      For all the non-English versions of the guide, note the date of creation in comparison to the latest update of the English version. I will not tell you every time one of the versions is not completely up to date. You can figure that out yourself. If it was not up-to-date when it was posted, I will let you know as I did the French version.
       
      For those of you who want to translate this guide:
      Don't.
      At least not yet. I should have made serious note of this earlier, but I intend to do some major revisions to this guide, such that any translation done now would be severely outdated by the time I'm finished.
      On top of that, there is also a possibility that this guide may be taken down altogether.
       
       
      As always, let me know what you think, and if there are any sections you'd like to see added.
       
      It's worth noting that I still plan to reword/revise some of the paragraphs. I feel like I didn't get my point across as eloquently as possible. But until then, make do with my rough-draft wording.

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

      Tulpa Phenomenon Overview Guide v1.txt

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

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