Common pitfalls and traps while making a tulpa.


Recommended Posts

This should be in the tips and tricks board:

 

When making a tulpa, it's easy to do things that are actually mistakes, and I think it's important to highlight some of the big ones that I have noticed and/or made while observing the tulpa community.

 

"Magic" Tulpa

 

The first, and largest, mistake I am aware of is the assumption that tulpa are "magical". Too often people will come into the tulpa community and see all these people talking to tulpa that they have been developing for years, and expect to reach the sort of levels of conversation they are seeing as soon as "first contact" is made with their tulpa. This expectation is unrealistic, and leads to a large number of people questioning the identity of thoughts that they shouldn't. Tulpa are often things which develop slowly, and may not feel sentient at the beginning.

 

There are some that make a tulpa and are instantly having full conversations, but I want to warn anyone new of a few important things.

 

  • Your tulpa is likely to sound like you at first.
  • Tulpa often do not to seem to be independent at first.
  • You may have to have your tulpa in mind in order to speak to it, at first.
  • Your tulpa may not be making large, complex, advanced sentences, or forming long-form opinions at first.
  • You may not notice the progress in definite "steps", all things relating to tulpa tend to be gradual, and all processes tend to slowly get better over time. Even some of the the most experienced tulpamancers have issues with the above things in the list.

 

Falling into a rut

 

This is something I did for ages, before I realized what was going on.

 

After you get to the point where you are first getting responses from your tulpa, it's easy to be overly concerned with getting responses at all, and it's easy to stop challenging yourself. One thing I have noticed is that it is easy to fall into a pattern with your tulpa.

 

A person who does this is going to start asking or speaking with their tulpa about the same thing every day. You ask your tulpa "how was today", it responds with "good", and that's about it, you repeat this process every day, and you have spent months doing nothing of worth to develop or inspire progress with your tulpa.

 

The fix to this is to watch for instances like I mention above and try to mix things up a bit. If you have heard or discussed something with your tulpa, try to move onto a new topic. Ask more complex questions, even they aren't answered at first, you are never going to get a tulpa capable of doing so without actually trying to encourage such activities. Don't let the lack of response shake your faith in your tulpas existing.

 

Stereotype Threat

 

This is something that is less a common issue for the person making a tulpa, and more one for everyone who views their tulpa.

 

A lot of times I see people with tulpa who act really oddly, strangely, or stupidly. I call these tulpa "stereotype tulpa" because it seems like they act entirely within a very simple set of personality traits.

 

It's hard to define where this is a problem, because it's kind of in the nature of tulpa to have a more simple, and easy to identify, personality, than a person does. However, one of the biggest tip-offs are odd ways of speaking, and the second-biggest tip offs are the tulpa always taking a extreme or severe position.

 

I've seen tulpa that always speak with certain dialects, or tulpa that always are mean, or tulpas that are super cheerful. While these things don't hold back forcing, necessarily, they are a sign that the host hasn't actually been considering the personality of their tulpa on a deeper level, and/or are taking shortcuts to make their tulpa appear more distinct in their head.

 

The only real way to combat this is more focus on nuance in personality, and development so that such stereotypes aren't necessary for the host to pick out the tulpa's thoughts.

 

Separation of theory from practice, or treating your tulpa not as a person

 

This issue isn't necessarily a common one, but I think it's fairly important.

 

Often, people discussing the theory of tulpa will allow it to effect the way they force or the way they treat their tulpa. For example, it is possible to use "selection of thoughts" to change a tulpas personality, essentially picking and choosing what thoughts were your tulpa, and which weren't, even if all of the thoughts felt as if they were coming from a tulpa. This practice is fine, in small part, but using techniques like this a lot distracts from the core purpose of making a tulpa, and that is treating them as if they are a separate human being within your head.

 

There is a fine line between doing the things above, and forcing correctly at the same time. The absolute most important thing for progress with tulpa is to treat and regard your tulpa as a person while forcing.

 

Another example: I abandoned a form, abandoned focus on personality, abandoned the wonderland. In theory, these things are not necessary, but allow a person to focus purely on vocalization. While it is absolutely possible to make a tulpa without a form, and I did make progress while not personalizing my tulpa very much, I have noticed recently that forgetting to treat your tulpa as a separate human being can be very detrimental to progress. Do not allow theory to distract from that core point.

 

Lazy forcing

 

It is easy to hear "you don't have to active force" or "tulpa can develop slowly over time" or believe that a tulpa can develop itself. These are bad habits to follow. Another issue that has effected me, rather than being observed, is the effect of thinking that you can ignore your tulpa for long periods of time while still making some sort of progress.

 

Making a tulpa is a difficult thing, not an easy one. You can't fool around for a year and expect things to be done. Forcing, in some form, is required to develop your mind and become better with tulpa. You don't get your tulpa to seem as if it is thinking alongside you every day without practicing thinking of your tulpa every day. It's hard to do, but you have to do it.

 

That doesn't mean you have to active force every day for an hour, either. It just means you have to put work in, to get productivity out. If you have a tulpa now, and you notice that your sum interactions with the tulpa are not challenging, new, or substantial, on a regular basis, then you should attempt to change this if you want to progress.

 

Accepting every little thing as reality

 

This serves direct contrast to the separation of theory from forcing.

 

Often you see people who have issues with their tulpa acting in strange ways. Their tulpa develops a personality trait they didn't want, or does something they feared.

 

This is a common thing with tulpa, especially early on, because many people aren't accustomed to determining what thoughts are and aren't their tulpa, and early on it is very easy to both misinterpret a thought as coming from their tulpa, and allow that thought to become part of that tulpa's new personality.

 

For example, a person who fears rejection above all else makes a tulpa. The one thing this person fears hearing from this tulpa is "I hate you", so whenever that person forces that phrase is on their mind. So, eventually, the thought will run through their mind in the moment the host is looking to hear from the tulpa, and as such, hears the tulpa saying "I hate you", exactly as feared. Hearing this, the person is devastated, and thinks their tulpa actually does hate them, makes up a reason for it, and now it's a part of the tulpa forever.

 

It's important to always assume that negative or unwanted comments are not the tulpa. Later on, it's much safer, but even then you should try to get your tulpa to give a very good explanation of their feelings, and I would still dismiss thoughts that are extreme for little good reason as intrusive.

Approved for T&T as far as I'm concerned.

 

I predict that somebody is going to call frontloading on the "Your tulpa is going to..." and "Your tulpa is not going to..." sorts of statements though.

Only one little thing that strikes me:

treating your tulpa as a person

Alongside headlines such as "Lazy forcing", "Accepting every little thing as reality" or "Falling into a rut" this headline seems to imply that "treating your tulpa as a person" is also a bad thing.

For example, a person who fears rejection above all else makes a tulpa. The one thing this person fears hearing from this tulpa is "I hate you", so whenever that person forces that phrase is on their mind. So, eventually, the thought will run through their mind in the moment the host is looking to hear from the tulpa, and as such, hears the tulpa saying "I hate you", exactly as feared. Hearing this, the person is devastated, and thinks their tulpa actually does hate them, makes up a reason for it, and now it's a part of the tulpa forever.

 

While close, and that I agree with the general statement, I don't think that when an indweller has a strong enough base, perceptions like this will be as strong as implied. I actually had such a fear when I was starting out, and not only that, a high amount of doubt concerning my initial companion, Midori's, behaviour. Not only did I fear her saying she hated me, not only have I heard her voice saying it (realizing later it was not her), but I also saw her, more often, act in a loving, affectionate manner, and I rejected it fiercely because I believed I was parroting. She stuck strong to her guns, and continued to be herself even my fear and doubt was at its fiercest.

 

While I am sure it had some effect on her, based on my conversations with her, but it did not result in her hating me being a hard coded part of her being. It takes a fair more than that to actually make one's headmate dislike them, mainly doing something bad enough to actually make them hate you. I have a girl that is/was pretty annoyed with me, named Cindy. But it was not because I made her to hate me, but because of something I actually did to her in the past, and it is something that I've taken steps where I can to mitigate, which she actually appreciated. Perception isn't really everything.

 

But I do like a bunch of other things in this write up, especially regarding people not letting the community dictate their entire method and way they treat their experience. This very much is a very personal experience, and the things you're dealing with in your companion is something close to, if not actually being, your own heart, mind, and world view. Not to say that one should not have some grounding, not at all, but don't let the community dictate everything about your experience.

Yeah, pretty fine. Approved for Tips. I have one concern though:

 

Separation of theory from practice, or treating your tulpa not as a person

[...]

You must remember to separate the theory, the decisions on the long term actions, the methods you go about using to force, and so on, do not meld with that concept while you force.

[...]

Pick a form, a personality, and so on, that you both enjoy and relate with. Talk to your tulpa and expect it to act like a human being, or a "whatever the form is".

 

I don't really get this section. You're saying that form, personality, wonderland and things are useful/important. And also that treating them like a person is very important. And that you shouldn't let theory affect what you do. It's confusing to me because these seem to be three different things. Like, if you reckon that form is usually pretty important to development, that's a piece of theory that you're telling people not to let affect what they do? And this kills the tulpa? And since when was treating your tulpa impersonally something that's implied by paying attention to theory?

 

 


 

 

Also, a few minor comments.

 

 

Too often people will come into the tulpa community and see all these people talking to tulpa that they have been developing for years, and expect to reach the sort of levels of conversation such as that the moment a tulpa does start existing. I actually attribute this assumption to the vast majority of people who have issues with parrotnoia.

 

The actual advice is fine but I wonder about this motivation. At least in my experience assumptions like this tend to be quickly and easily rectified. Pointing the finger here for 'issues with parrotnoia'? I don't really see it. The people who come to mind when I think of those issues have been here a while, and are already more than aware of what a 'reasonable' expectation for development is for a tulpa. Yet, their problems are unaffected. Maybe we're looking at different kinds of people and issues, so I'd be interested in what you're basing your thinking on here.

 

 

Your tulpa may not be making large, complex, advanced sentences, or forming long-form opinions at first.

[...]

Ask more complex questions, even they aren't answered at first, you are never going to get a tulpa capable of doing so without actually trying to encourage such activities

 

This kind of focus reads somewhat parochially to me. You're thinking about 'forming complex sentences', like you're dealing with a young child. It doesn't really match the kind of experiences that I think of as common - things that are difficult for young, vocal tulpas are more to do with exercising independent thought, initiative, and things like consistency. Contrast that to your child-tulpa idea, where your tulpa has to develop all structured and linguistic thought from the ground. Again, I'm kind of interested in your thinking behind this.

My first thought is that this could be a pretty good article entry if other opinions end up with it being too controversial, or whatever. But I could see this as Tips & Tricks as well, so, there you go. The connotations behind the child analogue could be supplemented with the child philosophy found here:

I see a lot of good stuff here. I know you've been through a lot so you have some wise words to share with rest of the folks.

 

But then there's also this, which is based on your experiences and telling about your experiences is good, but I don't think this is the best way to do it.

 

Doing so doesn't necessarily kill a tulpa, or prevent development, but it slows it to a crawl. I myself have trended towards a very impersonal, non-human tulpa. I abandoned a form, abandoned focus on personality, abandoned the wonderland. Now, those things are fine, and I did make progress while doing so, but I have noticed recently that doing so is very dangerous. The form, the wonderland, the personality, and so on, are very important to help you mentally regard your tulpa as another person. Do not abandon them if you want decent levels of progress. Pick a form, a personality, and so on, that you both enjoy and relate with. Talk to your tulpa and expect it to act like a human being, or a "whatever the form is".

 

What that says to me is "have a wonderland and a form or your process will be very slow and going on without them is dangerous", words that can be pretty harmful to the newbies who don't have a very good understanding of this stuff – which is, this stuff is extremely personal. Things happened to you, but it doesn't mean it'll happen to everyone. Rather than say your opinions are a fact and that your experiences will happen to everyone, suggest it as an alternative. Are you doing tupper stuff without a wonderland, did you create a tulpa without personality forcing, does the tulpa maybe not have a form? If you're finding like things are slow, you could instead try creating them and see if it helps. Something like that?

[Hail] While I am not GAT, I still do have a few comments. Tri and I have been thinking about what you wrote for a bit. I am reminded of a conversation we had on the IRC over a year ago on something that lead to a piece of this. I am glad that you managed to assemble that with some other things and lots of new experiences and observations into the work you have here.

 

Overall, I mostly agree with what you said here. I have a couple philosophical differences on a few things in it having to do with your interpretations of a couple things that are not the focus of your piece. But, as they are not the focus of your what you wrote, they aren't really relevant. And if there were, your observations are solid and it is just a disagreement of interpretation and your interpretation wouldn't be groundless (with the information available, your interpretations do have some backing) so I wouldn't object to this being in Tips and Tricks.

 

Basically, I think this is good.

 

I do think that you could improve a few things on the "challenging" part. I know what you mean, but I don't think that someone new to this would necessarily. Basically, a tulpa needs something outside of what they are used to, nudged to do something outside of their realm of experience, etc. to grow and develop. Add something saying that and make an analogy to learning in general and I think that this issue is mitigated.

      Mala beads are also known as rosary beads. Their size and length do vary (such as necklaces and bracelletes). For the sake of this tutorial I'm going to be using a necklace with smaller beads
       
      The point of this idea is to use mala beads to help focus you're mind and concentrate on forcing (in this case).
      You use mala beads by starting at the bead in front of the Guru bead, roll that bead between your thumb and middle finger in your right hand (if your doing it traditionally) then moving to the next bead after finishing a mantra to do another repetition. You'd go all the way around the bead necklace/bracelet. After that (traditionally) you'd then turn the necklace/bracelet around and go back to the beginning, never crossing the Guru bead. While doing this the user would chant mantras and other such sayings.
      This is the spot where instead of mantras i'd suggest saying traits of the tulpa your working on, or thinking of facial features and such.
       
      I would suggest on only focusing on two to three traits or features for a session using the necklace. In this case i'm calling one use going to the end and back a use (assuming you have a long necklace with smaller mala beads). I'll be using three traits as an example. We'll call these A,B, and C. As though we would go A then next bead, B then next, C then next, A then next and so on.
       
      Hope this has helped! heres a diagram so you know whats what.

      Hello everyone. Before I start, I'd like to say that this entire idea is based off of a guide I was reading last year: https://community.tulpa.info/thread-focus-concentration-removing-doubts-and-general-meditation-technique. (Much thanks to nice people on this forum who helped me find it) I hightly suggest reading it to have a good understanding of the thoughts in your own mind, because in my method, we'll be trying to manipulate them instead of simply silencing.
       
      The lost guide
       
      The guide itself was about a method of dealing with intrusive thoughts but we're going to reverse it here and use it to strengthen thoughts instead of killing shooting them down.
      The idea is to feel the thoughts as they form and destroy them before they are strong enough to distract you. You want to feel your tulpa and you know how her thoughts are different from your own, intrusive thoughts. You want to focus on your tulpa but identify and annihilate any thought that feels different, before those thoughts even reach you.
       
      The guide explained it with words (well, duh!). You think of a word and say it in your mindvoice. You have to get the idea of where is this word coming from. Now you cut it before you're done saying it. You keep repeating the word and cutting it shorter and shorter, until all that's left is the intention to say this word. It is important that you start the word with intention to say a complete word and then cut it, you shouldn't initially intend to say just half of the word!
      Now after that exercise, once you get the idea you should be able to cut the intrusive thoughts right away, when you feel a "spark" of the thought. That's pretty much it.
       
      I'd be really grateful if we could find the actual guide though. It was explained far better there but aside from that, I really feel like I'm using someone else's work here :/
      But let's move on to using this method to our advantage. Once you get the idea of where the thought is coming from and how they feel, you should be able to (instead of cutting it short) focus on how those thoughts feel and "stimulate" them. You could use it to strenghten your tulpa's voice or even take it a step further and proceed to my relocation method.
       
      How it works
       
      And what does this actually do. As mentioned in the title, this method is a forcing booster, which means it is not much of a forcing technique of its own. Once you get the gist of it, it's supposed to take from one to five minutes before your actual forcing method. By relocating the thoughts (if done correctly) you're forcefully changing your beliefs so that you subconsciously know (not 'think') your tulpa is there and you can get the right mindset for forcing. If it doesn't go so well, you should at least get a better feel of your tulpa, which is always a bonus. But it's still experimental, so far I've only tested it on myself, so worst case scenario your head can explode, implode or both. You've been warned.
      Origins of the relocation method
       
      (If you want you can skip this paragraph and go to the next one right away as that's where most of the practical information is)
       
      I have discovered an odd thing with my mind few years ago. I've been thinking of something related to my potential future, it was something along the lines of what my future job could be after a few years, doesn't really matter. What does matter though, is that it was something real. Something that could really happen. But this all felt like I didn't really believe it could. I knew that it was realistically possible, but I've been thinking of it as if it was not. And I didn't know why.
      Few days later I've figured this out. I was about to have an exam of some sorts and I kind of imagined myself passing it with no problem, just visualized it to kind of let go my worries and to believe I can pass it. But it didn't feel right, I've been thinking of it, again, as if it wasn't going to happen. So I began analyzing this - the thought about the exam taking place felt real, I knew it WAS going to happen, while the thought about me passing it felt like a wish, fiction. It wasn't a difficult exam too, so I wasn't really worried about failing it. I didn't know why but even though both of those felt realistic, I've been thinking of them differently. I've decided to focus on actually learning for it though, and left those issues for the next day.
       
      After the exam itself I came back to thinking of thoughts. And now, the thoughts about the exam and me passing it felt completely different - they were in the past now. I started messing around with thoughts, thinking of different things to find out how they 'feel'. And I've noticed that certain thoughts have something in common, they feel similarly real. I didn't know why but my mind seemed to be "categorizing" them.
       
      The next time I've had a similar situation to the exam one (which btw I've passed, don't worry) I've tried to make myself believe more. I wondered why isn't that thought in this or that category, while it felt like it should be there? So I've tried to move it to that category myself. After few minutes of concentrating on those thoughts and analyzing them, I managed to make it feel right, to really make myself believe in this (can't remember what it particularly was though, lol).
       
      So that's what I call the relocation, the process of reorganizing your mind, kind of, to make yourself think about stuff the way you want. From this day forth, I've been using this method whenever I wanted to really believe in something, I've even done some fun experiment like relocating my past memories to the future. Nothing big though, just recent events, but to my surprise, even though I knew those things happened already, I was expecting them to happen tomorrow.
       
      I don't know why, but even though I've kind of been using this method for a while, only recently did I think of applying it to forcing. And here's how I did it.
       
      Location of thoughts in the mind
       
      Even before I started forcing, I've noticed that different types of thoughts have a different feel associated with them. I'll call it "mind location" for the sake of simplicity. So, the locations. For forcing purposes, we'll focus on a few basic ones.
       
      The first "axis" is time. We have:
      Past - those are mostly your memories, and generally everything that's related to the past, pretty straightforward.
      Present - everything you think about your current life, including short time memories and plans for the upcoming days.
      Future - those are mostly your plans for life and things that will, or could potentially happen one day.
       
      The next "axis" is reality, things get a little tricky here:
      Real - those are things that seem real to you. Things that you do every day and things that very much can happen. Or things that did actually happen.
      Fiction - those are things that you consider "real" but you don't really believe that could happen. For example, thinking of winning million dollars on a lottery or even imagining yourself taking revenge on a bully if you don't really believe you could do it.
      Fantasy - those are things that are not real, not possible and cannot happen in the world we know.
       
       

      (Much thanks to Twilight for formatting this for me :3)
       
      The relocation
       
      Before we proceed further, you'll have to pinpoint all the mind locations mentioned above, in your own mind. Think of something from a particular category and try to understand how it feels. Once you've got the gist of it, you can do a simple trick.
      If you have problem with something related to your tulpa, for example vocality, try to imagine how would it be if you were actually able to clearly talk to them. This will probably be somewhere in Future Fiction or Future Fantasy area, depending on how you think of it. All you have to do now, is to forcefully "relocate" this thought to Present Reality. Again, this doesn't mean throwing the thought from right side of your brain to left. You have to understand the difference in how you think of reality and fiction, and simply "think it differently".
       
      Don't misunderstand me, this won't instantly make your tulpa vocal. Nevertheless, it can significantly speed up the process. The purpose of this trick is to make you FEEL your tulpa being there and speaking/listening to you. Once you feel it, it should be much easier to actually hear them. It's like tuning in to correct wavelength to speak to them properly. It makes you feel exactly how it would feel if they were really there. And most importantly, it weakens your mind barrier that blocks their thoughts - your subconscious takes it as real, not a fantasy, so why would it filter it out, right?
       
      This method has worked for me so far, extremely well. After the first try I felt like my tulpa was really sitting next to me. I felt it the same way I feel someone's presence when I close my eyes and I know they are still there. But I'd like you guys to try it out for yourself and share your results so we can all make sure it really works. I've had huge progress recently, so it probably does, at least to some degree.
       
      Happy forcing, and I hope you find it at least slightly helpful. Remember to read alot of guided, combine them and find what works for you best!

      These tips are to help those out there that are getting overwhelmed by the number of tulpa they have, and like my self are unwilling to make any of their tulpa "dormant" or to dissipate any of them. It covers a couple of tricks I've encountered to help give attention to all of them at once, and methods for dividing your time among them all.

      1: Method one, Living area
      2: Method two, In the room
      3: Dividing your time
       
      1: Method one
      This is a fairly simple method, that doesn't require you to be able impose, or even require a massive skill in visualisation (though the second helps), all you need to be able to do is picture yourself and your tulpa in a room or open space together, focus more on listening to them and paying attention to what they're doing, at first then work on talking to them and moving around the room yourself once that becomes easier.
       
      2: Method two
      This method is similar to the first and is easier if you can impose, though again it's not needed, and in fact helps with imposition.
      Imagine all your tulpa in the room with you, move around and have them follow you talk with you and do things with you (as best as they can with out a physical body that is) and interact with each other
       
      3: Dividing your time
      Even with the use of the above methods your tulpa will still want and possibly need one on one time with you.
      You could force them one after another every day or alternate days.
      I've found both have pros and cons, and it really depends on three things, how much time you have, how many tulpa you have and how long you can force straight. If you want to force all of them every day, I'd suggest looking at the time you have first to see if it's sensible and taking short brakes in between, to avoid tiring your mind.
      If you don't have the time for forcing all of them daily, or lack the ability to force long enough, and chose to force alternate days, I'd recommend writing something to help remember who's what day, or just to remember the order if you can't actively force everyday.
       
      Hope this helps

      Hey! If you're like me and have difficulty maintaining a visual during a forcing session then I have a few tips for ya.
       
      The idea of this method is to incorporate more senses by replacing your real eyes with the use of your minds eye and acting through your physical self to control your astral self in the WL(Wonderland).
      Example: Find a dark room or use a blindfold. Sit or stand, whichever is more comfortable. Understand that if you sit in reality you must also sit in the WL (it helps). Assuming you're sitting, imagine you're sitting on a chair in the centre of a white room. Look down and see your knees, bring your hands up, cover your face, feel the sensations. Remember you are acting with your real body and imagining yourself doing the exact same thing in the WL. I may be explaining this wrong, but simply you are combining the two worlds. I found using this method to greatly improve focus and visualizing my WL as a whole.
       
       
      Secondly, and personally I like to daydream, especially when I'm going to sleep or napping. I usually create a world where I'm some kind of Warrior or Mage in a fantasy world. What you imagine is up to you, but you want to make this into a game for you and your tulpa, kind of like roleplaying. So imagine this stuff as you normally would but invite your Tulpa along, they might wanna be an Archer or a Mage or something different than you. I guess it becomes like a game. We have fun when we do this and it's also a great forcing session. Try it sometime!
       
       
      If you have problems understanding these methods let me know, I will attempt to elaborate. Thank you! :D

      [align=justify]Hello everyone. Pronas here. In this thread of mine, I plan to talk about something VERY SERIOUS called Parroting Syndrome.
       
      Parroting Syndrome is basically when you think everything that happens to your tulpa seems to be done by you (a.k.a parroting).
       
      Now, the reason why this is serious is because if you keep thinking like this, you won't be able to perceive results in fear of tricking yourself, which will in turn make you lose motivation and in the end, make you quit making a tulpa.
       
      Unfortunately, there's no SUREFIRE way to know if you are parroting. Some people say the Vandereich's Prism works, while others don't seem to get any results from it. Also, I'm not going to say I have devised a way to know if you are parroting or a way stop parroting altogether, but I just want to share a way to at least make you parrot less.
       
      Basically, it involves convincing yourself you can't parrot anymore. But how do you do that? Firstly, you have to change the way you look at things. Whenever you try to visualize your tulpa, and it does something out of the blue, like smile, or walk somewhere, you have to just take it as it is.
       
      Think like this: "oh my tulpa moved, that's all". Maybe it was on it's own, maybe you were parroting, but there's no way to know so why keep thinking about it? It's dangerous to keep questioning yourself whether it was real or not, because you'll question everything then, and when you question everything you are doomed.
       
      "But i have trouble just letting things happen!" - you might say. If that's the case you might want to try a symbolic way to cease parroting.
       
      Visualize your tulpa in front of you, all cute and pretty. Now you bring your hands to it's face and start moving them throughout it's whole body. [REDACTED]
       
      Anyways, as your hands run along your tulpa's body, you imagine threads coming out of it, like they are being revealed. These threads should represent your control over your tulpa, what makes it move without it's consent, the essence of parroting.
       
      After you imagine the threads, you have to cut them. You can just imagine them being cut, or you can tulpaforce some scissors, whatever you think fits best. After the threads are cut, your tulpa is now a free being. You cannot control it anymore. Anything it does is because of it's own will.
       
      And that's it. Though you might parrot it subconciously, it's not like you can avoid it. Heck, maybe a tulpa is subconscious parroting, who knows? Anyways, I wish the best of luck to you guys who think they are parroting.
