CategoryTulpamancy

I’m curious about the art of tulpamancy, studying the consciousness and the mind.

The Real Life

Translator’s Note It amazed me how close this story gets to some thoughts that often cross my mind. It’s a different look at tulpas – it takes off the rose-coloured glasses and bares the reality of being plural in the full sense of this word. Tulpamancy is a grand journey. Never easy, but unique and full of excitement. I want to thank all the hosts who allowed their tulpas to unfold the winds and...

Are tulpas a mental disorder?

Everyone’s rushing to call tulpamancy a disorder, DID, or even schizophrenia as soon as they learn it’s not a practical joke and people actually practise tulpamancy. But is tulpamancy a disorder? Is it something you should be concerned about or treated for? Let’s begin with what tulpamancy is definitely not, and that’s schizophrenia. Schizophrenia is a severe mental illness that is thought to...

On Forcing: Developing the Consciousness

‘Can I create a tulpa only by passive forcing?’ This question pops up constantly on tulpa forums and discussion groups. It often comes from a thought that ‘active forcing’ requires you to dedicate time to your tulpa, and you ain’t got time for that shite (you still want to have a tulpa, though). The separation between active and passive forcing is based on if we...

Scepticism vs. Faith

Are tulpas based primarily on faith? A few weeks ago I was called out by one of the fellow redditors who stated that there are absolutely scientific methods to create a tulpa, following the strict scientific method. That sounded odd. I was under an impression that all the popular tulpa guides get you into a mindset where you’re not only open to believe whatever; you are actively suspending your...

Tulpa Census 2016

Is this extremely late? I'd think there's still something salvageable. We ran a yearly tulpa census very late in 2016. We wanted to focus more on tulpas this time, while collecting useful statistics on hosts as well. I hope you will find our insights useful. I’d like to thank Meten for organisational and management help. This census couldn’t be done without you. Also, huge thanks to Alsa, and to...

Forcing: Modern Practice vs Psychology

Active and passive forcing -- which one is better? Which one will help you to create a tulpa faster? Is it possible to create tulpa only by passive forcing? In this post I will discuss the mind theory behind the forcing, explain how it's similar and different to the Buddhist techniques and give practical advice. When tulpamancers are asked about forcing, they usually say that active forcing is...

Seven easy tips to keep your tulpa’s diary and boost their personal development

I’ve been keeping a dedicated diary for a year now and I think it was an overall positive experience. Keeping a diary improves your creativity (yay better detailed wonderlands), boosts your mood and improves your overall mental health. A daily journal would be useful not only for hosts, but for tulpas too, as our lives take only short fractions of the day. 1. Form a habit of writing notes No...

Manipulation, Abuse, Tulpas – Breaching the Trust

Being reckless with your mind leads to situations where your tulpas are easily manipulated. How does it happen and what can you do to prevent that? How to make sure your young tulpas don’t succumb to an external influence? Today I’m discussing the topics of manipulation, roleplay, and the core concepts of the tulpas’ out-of-system socialisation.

On Tulpas

Tulpas. A community with questionable ideas and goals, united by a mystical word. Dozens of people practising forcing, hypnosis, altering their consciousness, meditating, trying to cope with their disorders. They are united by a goal to create what Wikipedia calls “an imaginary friend”. But what are those tulpas? Humanity tries to figure how consciousness works for a long time, creating and...

Why tulpamancers should read fiction: 10 easy tips to developing your imagination

In the age of instant gratification, we enjoy only those things that can keep our attention for long enough. If we find a story and it doesn’t hook us up in the first two sentences, we move on to the next best thing. Is it the same with tulpas? Many tulpamancers come to the community looking for a magical experience, looking for something beyond common knowledge. They are given promises of...
