Hi. I am new here.


I only learned about tulpas this week. I read that they were people in your mind.


I don't know, I've thought a lot, and I don't know what to do.


Can the tulpa be bad, without any reason?


I am a lonely person. Even if it doesn't currently look like that, I still am. For 8 years I had no real friends. Well, one or two people consider themselves to be my friends, and I like them, but, as the years passed, I grew a shell around me to avoid being hurt by those who surrounded me. All people that know me, they don't really know me. They know my shell. As you can see, I currently am 16, and because half of my life was spent burying myself within my mind, I don't have any decent social skills. I don't know how to socialize. My "shell" talks and kind of socializes, even if poorly (I talk, but I don't feel anything, and I hide all that I feel, because I don't know if I should show it, or even how to show it).

I don't like being alive for the reason that I don't have any reason to. Nobody knows or understands me, and I am unable to understand my own feelings properly, and even if I do, I don't show them (I guess I am afraid of doing it).


Point being, would a tulpa help me, given that I am alone in the only place where I actually am me - my mind ? Would a tulpa understand without rejecting me? Would communication be easier than with people?



Thank you.

Hey man, welcome to the forums!

Sorry to hear you've been having social issues. That's actually a fairly common reason for creating a Tulpa, but I would stress that, although they can help with developing social skills/making you feel less lonely, they should never be a substitute for real live friends. Being lonely is pretty unhealthy, so regardless of whether you decide to create a Tulpa or not I'd still recommend reaching out and trying to meet some like-minded people you want to be around!

In regards to your question about Tulpas being malicious without good reason, I would argue that as long as you treat your Tupper with the same level of respect and care that you would a human being, you should have no problems.

Happy mancing!

Of course a tulpa would help you! I agree with Quiktics that reaching out to "real" friends is a good idea, too, but a tulpa can definitely help you feel less lonely. You'll always have someone to talk to.


And no, tulpas don't just "turn bad", especially not out-of-nowhere. The horror stories that say otherwise simply aren't true.

Pinky is not a pony. She's an imp.

Sunray is an angel-imp. Ex is humanoid. Kael is a dragon. Magnum is a dog.

Welcome to our humble company. Hope you'll get what you seek. Quiktics said good things. Maybe, you should try to get on with somebody. You should have in mind - this can take a time. Tulpa can take a really long time even before sentience, not mentioning visualisation. Do not lose your hope, if you really decide on making tulpa. Almost every(because I can't be sure) creepypasta is lie. This is not a kind of creature that will take over your mind while you sleep and conquer the world. Don't be afraid of it.

And may the fears keep away from you.

      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.
