^^^ this deserves a like. No two tulpas are the same. No two hosts are the same so no two creation methods will be the same.


Some people will have a vocal tulpa in a few days, some in a few months. Some people have a wonderland, others dont. Some people only active force and some people mix active and passing but they all end up in the same place.

Also one persone once told me that the only thig that can harm a tulpa is doubt and any progress is good progress so keep. PR here on the sight and go back and look at it. You would be amazed how many of the things that you didn't originally think we're that big of a deal actually are

I would even say that's up for debate. A healthy amount of doubt, in my experience at least, makes the bond between Host and Tulpa Stronger.

Everything is okay in moderation but most people who doubt don't do it in moderation. Constantly doubting them makes them depressed.

Okay let's see.


Try designating one spot of your wonderland as a place specifically for forcing. Say, always sitting on a certain rock under a certain tree, and once you finish forcing you can teleport through your wonderland. I've heard that works for a lot of people. (Mine is pretty small, so I don't have many problems.)


Also, that way you'll be able to do more detail on that small bit of your wonderland, which in turn seems like it could help you visualize your tulpa.


Five to six days seems like a pretty normal time to be getting head pressures. You might start hearing his voice in a week or so- try using some of the guides to improve speech and sentience. Seems like you're progressing well!

Yeah, I'm pretty much in the same place. I've only been tulpamancing for a month or so now, and active forcing has become a little infrequent for me, but I have made slow progress. And I do mean slow because only now am I getting the first signs of independence and sentience, and even then I'm still not sure I can tell the difference between whether I'm parroting or puppeting, or if my tulpa and I just think similarly.


If there's one thing I've learnt from this process, is that it takes a few metric buttloads of time and patience to pull off.

I'm overwhelmed.


I started forcing 5 days ago. Before I even created Chess, my tulpa, I already knew a whole lot about him - his personality, his body type, the way his face scrunches up when he's confused... thing is, he doesn't seem to be anything more than a character.


That's okay. So long as you didn't YOLO it and decide to skip the personality building stage, all tulpas start as characters. Some tulpas still are characters. Just keep believing in him and eventually he ought to start becoming real.


I'm a very "visually needy" person. I tend to have to see things in front of me to understand them. So on about day 3 of forcing, I decided to draw my interpretation of Chess, so I could have a face to associate with his name. On day 4 (yesterday) I created our mindscape/wonderland.


Lest I sound like I am beating a dead horse, your drawing is pretty good. Real pencil and paper it looks like. Always been a fan of pencil drawings myself.




I think part of the problem is that what I visualize when I try to go to our mindscape is very two-dimensional. And very large. I'm generally a very creative person, and what started out as a simple forested area has practically turned into an entire world. There's a field, a lake, trails to hike, places to camp, and the home I created for Chess - a suspended cabin-type house with a slanted roof and a wall made entirely of glass. It's beautiful.


But I can't see anything clearly in our mindscape. Everything is blurred, including Chess. I spent over an hour forcing last night, but my mind kept jumping from one location to another, "teleporting" us and making the experience very choppy. Chess was there, but I couldn't focus on his face very well - all I really got were images of his whole body, with little to no detail.


That's okay. I suppose one way of thinking of visualisation of wonderlands and things is as a skill. And like any other skill, it just takes practise. Keep at it and keep rendering things until it looks good. Or don't, which is what I usually do. Wonderlands aren't really necessary, unless they help you and the tulpa do things. As with all of the hopping around, my mind does that too. Fighting it makes it worse in my experience, so just go with the flow if it gets to be a distraction. See what your mind is trying to show you.


About Chess's bad rendering quality, it could be just your mind showing you that your tulpa is undeveloped. That or your tulpa could possibly be trying to change its form or something. Just stay tuned, and go with the flow.


I can't seem to reach Chess unless I am actively in our mindscape, and even when I am, it feels very controlled and premeditated. As if my mind reviews events as they happen, making unconscious changes and repeating them over and over until they run more smoothly. This happens with my thoughts in general... I rehearse everything before I say or even officially think it. It feels like I'm watching a movie, but skipping to the important parts. It's not very enjoyable - it's more frustrating than anything.


We must be siblings, astrally connected or something. Again, I suggest not fighting this if it annoys you. I have always found fighting those sorts of things to just cause frustration, and frustration totally destroys my ability to tulpa.


How can I let go of the need to story tell from beginning to end, and moderate everything that happens?How can I let Chess feel his own things and respond how wants?


If you feel that it really is a problem, that you are micromanaging your tulpa's life, then try challenging him. Challenge him to do something that you wouldn't expect to see him do, or even try to directly contradict what you say if you catch yourself doing this.


It shouldn't be a problem, though. People make tulpas through parroting them all the time, and its too early to say if something is wrong with him anyway. So give it time. Tulpas are like artwork: the more time you put in, the better your tulpa experience, I promise.

^^^ this. There are plenty of people who actually made no effort to predetermine form or personality and ended up with a fully functional tulpa. They just narrated to a ball of light or whatever and it ended up doing what it wanted to do.

      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:
      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.

      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.
