Forcing via Collaborative Art

I do collaborative art with my thought form Melian. She feeds me ideas with dreams and flash images and we work together to finish the inspired piece of art. We have been doing this for about two years. The art vision flash images are getting more frequent and stronger and our art collaboration easier to do as time goes on. I think this is a legitimate form of forcing.

 

I was wondering if anyone else does this sort of forcing? I attempted a search for something about this in the forum and came up empty.

 

In the Tulpa Art section of the forum I found two threads related to art done by tulpas themselves, both are very short without a lot of art. Nothing was said, as far as I can see, about this being a method of forcing.

Fenchurch and I do that with writing. We've had long conversations about the way that stories should go. I tend to focus a lot on setting, whereas she's more character and plot focused, so we balance each other nicely. On a few occasions, we've even built scenes in the wonderland to see how things look.

OMG! That is so cool! Yes, Melian writes a lot too. I never thought about how the act of building the wonderland together is forcing, but sure the hell is! Melian and I have written a lot about her dreamscape mansion. We have detailed entire rooms in writing! I like how you and Fenchurch are doing creative fiction writing. If you finish a novel together and publish, will she get her name on the cover? LOL She deserves credit you know!

I have thought a lot about putting her name on the cover. I'd really like to, but my girlfriend will want to know who this other woman I've been working so closely with is. If I break up with my girlfriend at some point, or I publish a book without her knowledge, Fenchurch's name will definitely be on the cover.

That is a problem! The other woman in your head. LOL I have a suggestion. Come up with a pen name that is a combination of your name and hers. Tell your wife it was inspired somehow. Her name will be on the cover, in a sense, and she can remain a secret.

 

For instance you could have the pen name have the an alteration of your first name and then her name "Fenchurch" or "Church" as the last name.

That's a good idea. I'll have to do that. :)

This is a cool idea. Jack and I came up with ideas for paper sculptures back when I took art classes in high school. I've even put together a 3D game board using cardstock and metallic paint, using ideas that I believe came from him. One of these days, I would like to get back into drawing as a forcing method.

Sculpture! How coolicious is that? ! ! Uh oh, you are giving my devious little mind ideas! ~Melian

10/10 would recommend trying out. :)

 

What's great about paper is that it's relatively inexpensive and not as messy as clay. The other day we came up with the wacky idea of constructing a miniature paper model of a city from a video game. There's a metro system in that city, so we might try to create a "train" using small magnets.

Is there any way you could photograph that and share it with us when it's done? That metro train sounds so cute! ~Melian

      We have found that the easiest way to hear the other is to stop talking. This probably goes against the general instinct in narration.
       
      1)Stop talking.
      2)Stop thinking.
      3)Relax and stop trying to stop talking and thinking. Going halfway is fine.
      4)Relax and pay attention to her.
      5)Wait. It can take a while.
      6)Relax and let whatever happens happen.
       
      We have found this useful for waking each other up. I use it quite often because of her tendency to drift off while I am working hard or typing. I imagine it can also give your tulpa a much easier and longer time to get their voice working, rather than hoping they jump into a conversation.
       
      It seems like the one thing we can't really do, is jump in to a conversation while the other is talking.
       
      Also, relaxing and waiting has lower odds of inadvertent parroting than hoping and expecting. We use this technique to make sure the person we are talking to is the other and not ourselves, which happens occasionally. By just relaxing and waiting, it forces them to do the actual work.
       
      Note: This should not be done as a replacement for traditional forcing. More, I think it might help if done before, in the middle, or maybe after some narrating. I also don't think it will help with getting first words. I think you need a little memory of their voice built up.
       
       
      Details of the steps:
      (1) Almost everyone has an internal voice that you hear your thoughts in. Hold it back. You probably do this automatically when listening to others or watching television. When you do so, background thoughts will start to be more noticeable. Which brings us to:
       
      (2) In order for your tulpa to think easily, you want to create an environment in which they have room to think. So you want to pull some of your background thoughts out. Look at them. If some of them are caused by something you are worried about, forget that worry and relax until the thoughts subside. If you keep making observations about the outer world, direct your attention inward until the outer world subsides. Then, relax so your thoughts slow down. This should give your tulpa the space they need to think.
      If you spend more than a minute on this step, then you are in meditation. This is too long. We are visiting, not staying.
       
      (3) Our goal is to give the tulpa room to think. This means there is one final effortful action we need to relax away. The action we initiated in steps one and two. Your tulpa does not need the entire brain. So long as your thoughts don't return in full force when you stop actively suppressing them, it's all good.
       
      (4) Now we add one stream of thought. The same way you become immersed in a book or television show or your own fantasy, to the degree you forget about everything else, you want to think about your tulpa. Think about what she is like, remember her, her traits, her personality. Think about what it would be like to think like her. About what it would be like to see her. About what she would do.
       
      (5) Now comes waiting. Either it will work, or it won't. Giving it more time improves the odds. It is important to not try to do anything during this step. If you feel the thoughts you quieted in steps one and two rushing back, it is probably better to just stop for the day rather than try to suppress them again.
       
      (6) This last step is an anti-parroting step. It is important not to expect your tulpa to do anything. You are just watching. You are not doing anything. Don't critically analyse any thoughts that come your way, don't accept or reject anything. Don't make any judgements or predictions, don't hold any hopes. Now we collect data. We can analyse it afterwards.

      I posted here before about a certain issue I'm going through with my Tulpa, but I still need some guidance. I made my Tulpa to be passionate, caring and really loving, everything was fine and she literally made my life alot better. But after some time I started having issues with anxiety and pure o OCD intrusive thoughts due to deciding to quit my long time pornography consumption, I started having intrusive sexual thoughts and images about my Tulpa, and it felt like there was a second version of her which was kind of evil, I was afraid that i will accidently create different intrusive thoughtforms which be involved with my Tulpa in sexual acts. Sometimes I can feel my Tulpas original caring presence but after some time I go down the spiral again. I was in an abusive relationship before where I was being afraid of being cheated on and was made to feel jealous on purpose. I don't want all the things I went through to latch to my Tulpa. I stopped forcing for some time now, I feel safer, but I don't want to abandon her. I'm just wondering if it's my life "traumas" and OCD or my Tulpa just hates me.

      ‘Hour counts’ refers to the practise of tracking the number of hours spent forcing. It was a common practise in the past because the oldest guides instructed the reader to use them. However, they have gotten a bad name over the years from people perpetuating the idea that they are detrimental to the tulpa creation process. These fears are not entirely unfounded, because with the wrong mindset they can be very detrimental. However, with the correct approach they can be a beneficial tool that gives you schedule and structure, especially if you struggle with laziness. The purpose of this guide is to alleviate those fears by clearing up the confusion about hour counts and giving you a list of dos and don’ts to consider while using them.

       

      Dos and Don’ts of Using Hour Counts


       
      DO use hour counts as a scheduling tool rather than as a progress tracker. – If you are someone who struggles with laziness, scheduling your forcing sessions in advance may increase your productivity by keeping you on track. Hour counts are an effective way to do this, e.g. “I’m going to spend 15 hours on vocality forcing, 1 hour per day Mon – Fri over 3 weeks.”
       
      DO remember that your targets are flexible. – You can change your target number of hours at any time, whether you are increasing or decreasing your targets and/or the time period spent on them. It’s important to not use this as an excuse for laziness though, try your best to only adjust your schedule if you have legitimate reasons to do so e.g. change of shift pattern at work, unavoidable social engagements like weddings or funerals etc. If you can’t meet your targets all the time, that's no reason to worry! Maybe the targets you’ve set for yourself were too unrealistic, if so, reduce them. You shouldn’t feel guilty and beat yourself up if you fail to hit your targets all the time. Hitting your targets is desirable but not mandatory.
       
      DO remember that your targets are arbitrary. – Unless you’re using one of the old guides’ recommended targets (which I wouldn’t recommend, you’ll see why later), your targets will be based on personal choice and therefore will have no bearing on the progress you make during the time spent. Even if you are using one of the old guides, those targets will have no effect on your progress either because it’s the process itself, not an arbitrary number, that matters. It’s also worth mentioning that progress isn’t necessarily linear, so there may or may not be much difference between two arbitrary targets. It doesn't matter exactly how many hours you spend forcing, just as long as you are doing it consistently and to the best of your ability.
       
      DON’T take the hour counts from old guides as gospel. – Most of the authors of the old guides even said that you shouldn’t follow their guides exactly, referring to them as guidelines as opposed to rules. I would even go as far as to say to disregard any recommended hour counts from any guide entirely because it may only cause anxiety for the reasons listed below. Another thing to consider about the old guides is that not just the hour counts, but some of the other information found in them may or may not be considered obsolete now, so take them with a pinch of salt if you decide to read them.
       
      DON’T worry if you don’t see results after a certain number of hours. – This can cause discouragement. Not seeing results after a while isn’t necessarily a bad thing, it could encourage you to analyse what you’re doing and try something else that works better for you. You shouldn’t be discouraged by not seeing results after a certain number of hours because your targets are arbitrary anyway.
       
      DON’T worry if you do see results before a certain number of hours. – This can cause doubts that you’re doing it right and can even cause parrotnoia (the fear that you're parroting all of your tulpa's responses) if your tulpa becomes vocal before you anticipate. A tulpa isn’t going to wait for you to achieve your arbitrary hour target before they speak to you because progress is determined by effort, not by arbitrary numbers.
       
      DON’T compare your progress to others. – This is the main reason why people have had bad experiences with hour counts. People progress at different rates. When someone who's put in more hours finds that someone who has put in less hours has progressed further, they may become discouraged or think that they are doing something wrong. Conversely, when someone who's put in less hours finds that someone who has put in more hours has had less progress, they could develop doubts of their tulpa’s sentience/sapience or could develop parrotnoia.
       
      DON’T think that you need to do a certain number of hours minimum per session. – This can easily cause fatigue, which could make your forcing sessions less effective. For me, 30 – 60 minute forcing sessions were optimal, however everyone is different in this regard and many people can force for longer periods with ease. Consistency is key in tulpamancy, doing a forcing session for 30 minutes every day for a week is better than doing a forcing session that lasts for 3.5 hours only 1 day a week.

      What are some little things you found/find helpful with forcing? Could be stuff that helped you focus better, stuff that helped you develop your tulpa, things that alleviated doubts/frustration, things like that. An example would be our host listening to white noise to help him focus and get into the forcing "zone."
