Tips that may Help Bolster Sentience


Recommended Posts

Greetings. I wouldn't say that I'm an advanced tulpamancer in the slightest. In fact, I'm still just learning things, myself, but during the drive home today, an idea had struck me that I put to the test, and began to see results with. I thought that I would share it here to see if others have tried it, or might be able to build upon this and share results.

 

 

For some beginning tulpamancers, early forms of communication from their tulpa mainly stems from headpressures. I am one of those. Normally, during everyday narration, I try to put some yes/no, positive/negative questions in there to get a response from Vinyl, and normally I do. However, I didn't want myself to become dependent on keeping things that way, in case I was only training myself. So, what I did was I told Vinyl, "We're going to change things up a bit. Instead of poking my left temple with pressure for positive and the right for negative, we're going to reverse them. Now, if you like something, poke the right, and if you dislike something, poke the left."

 

The results were immediate for me. I had turned on a music playlist that we're familiar with listening to that has some of her favorite tracks on it. I asked her to tell me if she liked the upcoming song that she had previously 'mentioned' to me before that she has. The result was headpressure on the right instead of the left, and not a weak one, either! Things continued that way, answering yes/no on the corresponding sides of my head.

 

Basically, my tip for beginners is to try and vary up how you perceive responses from your tulpa. If you're familiar with one method for a while, surprise yourself and your tulpa with a slightly different approach to the same method, and see if the results come out in high favor.

 

 

Another tip that I have started practicing, and I feel as if it is working wonders for me, does involve the use of parroting and puppeting during the beginning stages of raising your tulpa. Mind you, I can definitely understand how there can be doubt when it comes to using these tricks. Is it still you puppeting or parroting down the line, or is it your tulpa?

 

Something that I've been doing is if you're going to parrot your tulpa, or puppet them, let them know that you're going to. How I see it, it's common sense, however that doesn't mean that it isn't always done. I feel that if you start everything off knowing that it is you, and you discuss it to your tulpa first, and when you're done, that you tell them that you're no longer going to puppet/parrot them, you put yourself into a mindset that it can only happen while you have control over it. Thus, if your tulpa replies to you, you've already closed off your thinking that you're still in control of it. Sure, it might involve a bit of training your mind to perceive it that way, but it's definitely worked for me, and perhaps it will for you, as well.

 

 

If you are one who uses headpressure for communication, something that may or may not help you along the path to vocality is implementing more responses for your tulpa to work with. In general, most people start off with positive/negative responses on either side of their head. What I've done recently was added a front/back for OK and 'IDK'. It's worked out rather well for me, and it gives your tulpa a bit more freedom to express themselves. I'd say start off with your basic positive/negative, and if the two of you are comfortable/ready, add more responses.

 

 

Another thing that I noticed earlier today is that some people will go on an 'absense' with their tulpa, so that when they try working with them again, they run into complications getting things back to where they were. I am no tulpa expert in the slightest, but what I do that helps keep things going smoothly is that I passive force daily. As long as you can find even one spare minute a day, that's all that you would need to greet your tulpa, let them know that you still acknowledge their existence, maybe bring up how the day is going, or what you are feeling. It doesn't matter how busy you are in a day, there's always going to be some straggling moments that you can squeeze in a greeting or mini-convo. Doing this, I believe, should help keep the relationship between you and your tulpa consistent.

Hey Celest, at a glance, the guide submission is giving a tip for individuals to mix things up with the head pressures. However, I don’t see anything that would be “varying approaches.” There's only the underlying concept you presented here.

 

Since you consider this a tip, I’m presuming you’re probably wanting responses from others for that spectrum. I would approve of this (in pending) as a Tips & Tricks submission, but the main concern I have is what is actually “varying.” Maybe a title change would be better like, "Using Head pressures to Help Bolster Sentience" or something.

 

Maybe you have intentions in the future to add more approaches, and there are a few guide submissions that relate to head pressures, however:

  • The people who made those submissions did so long ago and are probably inactive

 

  • Those same inactive individuals may have had negative front-loading while they explained some aspect of head pressures and narration. Probably due to how little information there was on applying concepts towards the tulpa creation process and conceptualizing a sentient being through means of symbolism and such.

 

Those two simple reasons are what can help salvage this guide submission seeing how you’re probably going to be active than those who made posts similar to yours. However, there doesn’t seem to be any submissions solely for a tip, so that may be another factor that may have this submission useful.

 

The concept isn’t really anything new, and I honestly think head pressures lead to a psychosomatic experience that people tend to loosely believe in order to build other options of confirming sentience, existence, and other aspects of what would make a tulpa.

 

That’s just a personal opinion though, so it's not really a bad thing, and I’ve seen countless of individuals have head pressures as their breakthroughs in reaching some level of communication with their tulpa.

 

Other than that, I think this is a useful Tips submission if some of the concerns addressed before could be fixed. For the tag, it seems this would be a supplement towards [Narration] (i.e. using head pressures as confirmation for certain responses) than just [sentience].

Easily fixed, upon retrospect not sure why I had 'varying' placed in there.

Looking like some tips and tricks material to me, this would fit there well. This was actually something I did a lot too when I was dealing with a non-vocal tupper, switching sides and stuff to challenge both of us. Funny how it never seemed to be a challenge, though.

I've updated the first post with my views on parroting and puppeting. Any opinions are welcome.

      During narration, it's easy to reach a mental block and become unable to think of what to talk about to your tulpa. This list provides you with many different options for topics to use during narration, conversation, and vocality practice.
       
      For narrating, talk to your tulpa about anything that interests you. Don't worry about repeating yourself or telling your tulpa something they already know: the content is secondary to the actual act of talking to them consistently. Use this list for inspiration, talk to them as much as you can, and don't stress over whether or not it's the "right" way to narrate. Do what works for you as best as you can and you're good.
       
      If there's anything this list is missing, feel free to suggest it.

      Hi. I started creating my tulpa, Ciris, yesterday and i have a question about narration.
       
      When i talk to my tulpa, should i talk to her as if she knows everything i know, or consider her as a new born ?
       
      For example, should i be like:
      "Hey Ciris, this is my aunt, my mom, my brother and sister.." ?
       
      Thanks for replying :)

      Hi! Host here, Lolli; I'm very new to the forums, so I apologize if this has already been addressed, but this question isn't so much about forcing/visualization/dialogue or anything like that so much as the means to express these things. 
       
      I'm an artist and I've doodled and drawn my first tulpa, Ichibod for years, and while Priscilla is young, my visualization of her is very strong now and they are both extremely vocal. Our new system is adjusting and it's fun, but it gets complex because they often talk between each other, or with me, or about general things that I'm not even involved in. I've been trying to think of some kind of way to channel this communication. As a host, I'm comfortable with text, but I know that my tulpas aren't some kind of mechanism for roleplay or anything like that. What I'm seeking is a way to both document some of our conversations, so that I can draw them later as well, but also let them talk more fluidly besides random spurts of words, tulpish, and emotive impressions. I started brainstorming how we could effectively talk in text without it being through some simulated bot in a chatroom or anything like that. 
       
      Has anyone had any experience using a chat service or anything like that to engage with their own tulpas without outside influence? I mean, there's typing into a notepad, but that seems like parroting for them. There's Discord, but I don't know if there's a way to have multiple accounts and use them in a room. I'm not that tech savvy (Icky may be, but he's a little out of the loop about this as well; he's always been socially awkward, lol.) 
       
      I hope I didn't take too much of your time! Thank you so much for reading! We appreciate it :3

      Hi ,
      Sooo i have been trying to understand this for like 2 days now , I am maybe just retarded right now .
       
      I understand what is tulpish . Images , sounds , intentions (that is the definition right lol ?)
       
      Say i want to say in tulpish that i am coming home . I would send an image of me going somewhere and opening a door .
      But how could i possibly say that i am going "home" and most of all that i am going "right now" and i am not sending a fantasy or just a memory.
       
      I guess it would come from my intentions . And maybe here is the problem , how in the world do i do that ?
      Like when you send your intentions what do you feel ? how do you "generate" them ?
      How do i include them in my message ?
       
      Like i said it's maybe just simple stupid and i am missing something obvious but i just cant figure this out.

      It's day 2 since I created my tulpa and I have been talking to her for an hour today ( I have been really busy )
      After I talked to her and stopped visualising felt a bit.. woozy? I don't know how to describe it. Woozy is the best word to describe it. I only felt like that for a few minutes but on to the main thing. When I was talking to her I was visualising her and me in our wonderland and seeing her through my point of view and occasionally seeing us both. I talked to her about her personalities and how she had every right to make her own choices about well everything tbh. I asked her a few questions and I tried playing rock paper scissors. I explained the rules but every time we played she would only choose rock. I'm sure I didn't parrot since I only focused on my choices. But I do feel like I was parroting like when I told her a joke and she smiled Or when she laughed I'm certain I was parroting her. How do i stop? And am I doing everything right?
