Something really interesting that happened this morning
Before i make this post i have to make it clear that my tulpa is(was going to be) rainbow dash, from my little pony friendship is magic. deal with it.
Now that i’ve got that out of the way, we can get on the the real subject of this post
Last night i had a lot of trouble visualizing like i normally do before bed. It might be because i stayed up later than usual watching stand-up comedy on youtube because i was in that kind of mood.
The comic talked about how love is evol (evil) and it made me think. Evidently it made me think so much that that night i had a dream involving a girlfriend i’ve never had. The details of the dream are foggy. It involved snow-skiing, base jumping and boating.
Here’s the interesting part: when i woke up i, almost immediately, had a crystal-clear mental image of an OC (original creation) pony that i’d never seen before. It/she was totally new to me. She even came with a name: Skye. So i assumed this was what my subconscious thought my tulpa should be, so i visualized on that for about a half hour till i got up.
Later in the day, i had all but forgotten what Skye looked like. I went on the tulpa.info IRC and asked them for advice (because they’re been really helpful to me and to other people in the past) and one guy suggested that instead of trying to remember Skye, i should just try to see her. I don’t know exactly how or why, but i was able to call to mind the mental image fairly easily.
So i guess my tulpa wants to be named Skye, and have a dark-teal colored coat with curly red and cyan hair. Fine by me!
Edit: if you’re wondering why i even mentioned the dream at all, it’s because when i set out to create a tulpa, my main reason for doing so was to create a companion. Not necessarily a girlfriend, but just someone who would be with me always and possibly for the rest of my life. Not that i want our relationship to be a romantic one, or that i want her to replace a girlfriend for me, but i guess that’s how my subconscious saw best to put it in a dream.
