42 1/2 Things to Do with Your Tulpa

Recommended Posts

Reading books and listening to music is a great way of spending time even if your tulpa isn't vocal, it's an easy way to help your young tulpa develop. Also, break physics, that's my suggestion for things to do. Things bigger on the inside, infinite loops, defying gravity, that kind of things. Thanks to it I got a response from Arya for the first time \o/

Maybe the breaking physics realization you had could be allegorical to getting your mind into being used to be as flexible and crazy as possible to bring about more freedom. Almost like letting your doubts slowly slipping away, and your mind not having to fixate on worrying about the doubting, and you start making breakthroughs like you did with Arya.

 

When people realize that being as free as possible in how they practice developing their tulpas can help in the long run, they'll be less fearful on how the tulpa would be affected. Because how the host thinks their tulpa will be affected is temporary, and probably only as real as the host wants to feel it's affecting them negatively. I think some people have ideas of trying to make sure their tulpas are safe, when they're really blocking progress from those fears. So when they see people are making progress in a short period of time, they get irritated. But they probably don't realize that if newcomers can gradually become better than before, there has to be some kind of psychological approach to it.

 

Having the mentality where you can tell your tulpa to try out new things because their existence isn't going to be eradicated from a few bad thoughts can truly bring out potential in their development. I guess it could be compared to just knowing over time, all the things we think are bad provides a chance for growth. People probably worry about failures so much, and never realize it's through failures, and things that seem unorthodox that experience can be built.

 

Instead of trapping a tulpa to be problem-free, letting them be exposed to all sorts of things, and having the belief that they can overcome adversity just as the host could make them unstoppable in things they want to improve on. And as simple as a guide submission as this is with things to do with your tulpa, at least it's having potential of other community members to add more to it for a communal value.

 

Maybe that's what we need more in this forum, especially with how people are open-minded about this list. Though I do agree with others that maybe a title change would be nice, especially if others are going to add more suggestions in the future.

 

One important value I'm seeing in this guide submission is to get people into doing something rather than having to make a contingency plan before they take a piss. Maybe just the urgency of doing eventually works things out over time, and makes the act of practicing seem more fluid, I guess.

This seems like something that was played as a forum game somewhere and people just threw around ideas which all were slapped in one post. Are ideas good for those who lack them? Probably. But if I were you or a person who lacked ideas as to what to do, I don't think "wow hypnotize" would be the first thing I wanted to read. That already seems a lot more advanced and has more than just "do stuff with your tulpa!" behind it.

 

I suggest you order your list in a new way, where the simpler/more obvious ones are at the start and the more advanced/complex ones come later. Right now it's just like you've written what has come first to mind without really giving them much thought, even though your first item in the list sets the tone for the whole thing.

Look at that, I stuck this and it isn't even Monday today.

 

I agree with Sands somewhat. The content itself is fine enough to me, although I do find your priorities odd - hypnosis being the first item on the list is something I know SOMEONE would approve of here - but you could at least take the 31 out of the name. Reordering is pretty non-essential as far as I'm concerned although it's not a bad idea if you care about the sort of things like improving the presentation of what you write.

 

Speaking of presentation, fix your title capitalisation. It should read '31 Things to Do with Your Tulpa', or '31 Things to Do With Your Tulpa'. None of this German capitalisation, thanks - although I also know SOMEONE who would approve of that sort of thing.

You're right there is a mentality of overcautiousness and non-doing in the community. Thanks for taking the time to write so much, I agree with you on most points.

You'd be surprised by the number of people who lack ideas. Try going on the IRC for any amount of time and you'll see what I mean.

 

I guess a numbered list semantically denotes some order, but no order was meant. I think I'll not only reorder the list slightly, but remove the numbering.

See above for my comment on "priorities".

31 is a marketing tactic and it's why so many people are responding to this thread. It may be a negative marketing tactic. I need to give it some more thought. I will fix the capitalization though. Thanks for your input.

Approved for either Tips of Resources (prefer Tips).

 

While this seems like a random list of activities to do with your tulpa of the likes I've seen before in another place, enough of the activities listed are fine ways to spend time with your tulpa, thus it's approved.

 

This list also seems a bit like it was community-contributed - in which case, why not just let people comment with their ideas and you can add them to the original thread - although it seems to me that in the latter format it might better work in General Discussion rather than the Guides section as it'd be a collaborative guide.

 

You should also take into account some of waffles' comments regarding title capitalization.

 

Your URLs are also broken, use

[url=url goes here]url text[/url]

tags, so the links would be correct and actually go to the right URL.

The majority of the items on this list are of my own creation, though I've compiled a few great ideas from various other lists.

 

As I say in the post, I'm open to suggestions for things to add to the list, but so far nobody has suggested anything that's not already on there.

 

Ah, thanks for the tips. I've fixed the URLs and title capitalization.

:)

Well I'd probably still move the possession one (second place) further down the list for the same reason as the hypnosis thing you had as the first one previously. Seems something a bit too advanced to be so early in the list, especially as otherwise it seems like you've moved the more complicated ones down the list. Though there are some easier ones listed further down too...

 

Otherwise, well... I'm not sure if this is the greatest thing since sliced bread or something I would like to see more on the site, so I hope this doesn't start some kind of bandwagon where everyone makes their own list of things to do. If people do start submitting more lists, I would suggest that theirs would be merged with this one - or at least the ones that are unique. At the same time, there's nothing that's too wrong about this. Perhaps this would work better as a General Discussion game that's stickied and the actually good ideas would be edited into the first post for people to find them easily, but I don't think this is something that I can't approve.

 

Thus, I guess I have to approve this for tips and tricks, though you might want to think of reordering the items in your list a bit. Go through them and think which ones you or someone else when they were new would have liked to hear and try first, assuming you/they can't do any of the advanced stuff yet. Always remember to put some effort into your presentation as well, even ideas that have taken a long time to come up with can seem half-assed when it seems like you haven't thought about their presentation.

Again, this is not an ordered list. I purposely removed the numbers to indicate that. Furthermore, possession isn't a magically difficult thing. We had luck with it shortly into our tulpa journey. Finally, a secondary purpose of this list is to give people ideas of what is possible in tulpamancy and to give them something to strive towards. I'd rather strike a balance between listing the most interesting things and the easiest things.

 

I hope I don't come across as someone who doesn't put any effort into their guides. The suggestions are simple, as they should be, and I wouldn't consider this guide as the utmost example of my writing prowess.

 

I concur. I would like this to be an official comprehensive compendium and if it somehow starts a bunch of knockoffs, I'll be the first one to suggest merging.

 

I do think this guide is necessary though, because for some reason people have lost the ability to be creative and seem to have the idea that everything in tulpaforcing is refined to an exact science. Where's the experimentation, the trial and error, and the personal relationship?

 

That's why I made this guide, and people seem to love it so far. People love anything that lets them think less. :p

 

I'll make a few more minor fixes. What I'm really looking for though, is contributions of new ideas to add to the list.
