Tulpa to help with thought problems?
« on: July 09, 2014, 06:11:15 PM »
Hey,
I wanted to know whether I could create a tulpa to ease a certain problem that I have. Oh let's just cut it to the story, shall we. I have encountered a lot of stuff in my life that has left me traumatized towards certain type of people. Therapy, meds blah blah normal drill, yet I am still unable to be normal when I encounter these people. So then I got a wild card idea! What if I could create a tulpa of the certain type of people and make it friendly etc. so that I would have a positive experience to counter my negative memories? What do those who have more knowledge about tulpas think about this?

 I have tried this in some levels when creating story charachters, however I've had trouble maintaining their OK ness, they've turned out to be like my nightmares. So..any imput is appreciated!

I'm sure the short answer to this is something along the lines of "could go either way".

Considering your last sentence, you sound like you might got a problem with an overactive imagination and intrusive thoughts. Those tend to be a problem when making tulpas in the first place and well, if things tend to turn out to be something that is a problem to you in your imagination, it could happen again. People with some mental disorders apparently have made tulpas in the past, but this far it seems like it helps some and hinders others. I don't think there is one definite answer here, as it's mostly up to how you handle the situation. So I guess a fair warning is in point as we possibly can't know what would happen, but a fair warning might very well be given to every single person interested in tulpas.

From my personal experience, tulpas tend to help with a lot. Feels like they can make you understand so much about yourself and become a more balanced person in the end, which is a pretty huge plus I gotta say, something you probably are after as well. But for you to create a tulpa, you seem like you would have to go fight your other problems on your own first. Things "turning out like your nightmares" when you haven't intended them to is an issue that to me, would most likely affect making tuppers. First and foremost you would need to understand that you are safe in your mind and that you have the power to control everything by just making it happen. Creating such a, uh, peaceful mental environment would also be a good first step to overcome your own issues, as there would at least be one place in the world where nothing would hurt you. And such peace and calm is a pretty good starting point before you go adding tuppers.

Making a tulpa might force you to learn that before you really get anywhere. But I'd say it is a skill you need to learn sooner or later, but when you want to do so, up to you I guess. Up to you if you even want to make a tulpa, knowing that there might be some risks. But obviously, just like any other person, a tulpa could help you with much and the process itself can be pretty helpful.

I'm reading it I feel like it. Because it is so close to us but we do not know. I'm feeling inspired to read more as soon as I read it.

Anyway, not much to say to OP. Colonel has already said what's to be said. Not much to add. If intrusive thoughts and frequent, negative emotions in one's imagination are the problem, then that's what should be dealt with first. Plenty of techniques to do that, like narrating what one intends to see so as to help focus on just that visual and nothing else, open-eyed visualising to minimise the intrusive distractions that otherwise can be prevalent in closed-eyed visualisation, or using belief implanting to establish the idea in one's head that one can only visualise positive things.

In terms of what kind of tupper to make, then rather than designing a tupper based off something with which one associates negative emotions, I would instead recommend making a tupper that can make you as happy as possible, by starting off with a visual, voice, traits, and so on that you think would help you the most, emotionally. Instead of being stuck in the past, you should shift your focus away from the negative and onto the positive, and empower that so that it may help you. Remove the attention that the "certain types of people" have in your mind.

I tried to read and understand this. Because I think it is useful and can be used in everyday life.
