I pray for you nightly Polly, please heed our warnings. Your tulpa is a spiritualistic conjuration of a fake Severus (being) which is supplementing your love for God; this by definition is serving two masters which the Bible tells us we must not do. "Even born-again Christians often cannot differentiate between the spiritual and the psychic-demonic when under the spell of doctrinal errors, particularly those concerning the work of the HS. The result is confusion, division and promotion of certain spiritual gifts contrary to the teaching of God's word (1 Corinthians 13:8) (Taken from "Demons in the World Today" by Merrill Unger, p. 50)." We care about you Polly; God cares about you and loves you. If you truly and wholeheartedly want to get rid of Severus, there are people here including myself that can point you in the right direction. The reason he is still there is that I believe that you truly, in your heart did not want him gone which is why, even if you commanded him in the name of Jesus Christ, did not go away.
