It is said that perception is reality, but can thoughts actually become things?  The tulpa, believed to be a manifested thought form is a term originating in Tibetan culture that is said to be a living being created out of focused thought.

There are amazing stories in the Tibetan tradition that discuss the reality of tulpa and in more recent years the idea that tulpa (these living beings) may walk among us today.

Is there a connection between tulpa, shadow people, black eyed children and even a newer phenomenon known as “slender man,” that reveal a common thread?

I spoke with paranormal researcher and author Jeff Belanger to discuss this mind bendig phenomenon.  It’s a loaded subject with all sorts of implications.

The burning question underlying all of this – is consciousness the common denominator when it comes to what we experience?  This was a fascinating discussion and one that continues to expand the idea that reality is far more creative than we can possibly imagine.
