Tulpas

Post by uaya »

Hey guys,
I've recently heard about Tuplas for the first time and I kind of get the base concept, but now every time I doubt my witchcraft, spirits or any other spiritual phenomenon, I feel like it is all a tulpa or a placebo.
I know that people get ups and down in their confidence in spiritual works, but I was wondering if anyone had experience with a real tulpa and what it was, how it works. Would deities be tulpas?
It would be informative but also reassuring that things I'm experiencing aren't me going crazy,Thanks!

I think this is very similar if not the same as what my tradition calls a fetch, Personally I would not consider them deities.
I searched the topic and found these, hope it helps. search.php?st=0&sk=t&sd=d&sr=posts&keywords=Tulpa

You're welcome!
And regarding egregore, they are a bit different because they form spontaneously and are associated with place (ie; genus loci) or corporation where a tulpa, servitor or fetch is formed by the magician and programed for a task and specific length of time. An egregore can survive as long as it's being fed by the energy of the people that gather in its presence.

Ya, but maybe not the images :wink: as much as the energy that is fed into the corp.

This is a pretty subjective topic. A former friend of mine believed all gods and the like were tulpas and considered herself an atheist. Personally, I find a mix of the two in the world. But I can see why many believe all spirits or gods are tulpas. I mean many of them definitely need the power or reverence from humanity.
I am the Earth, The Sun and the Stars
And I am the also the Moon
I am all animal and birds,
And I am the outcast as well, and the thief
I am the low person of dreadful deeds,
And the great person of excellent deeds
I am Female. I am Male and I am Neuter.
