It turns out the synchronization between mind and body isn't as close as we might expect. The body doesn't know exactly when your mind has fallen asleep, and for survival reasons would be dangerous for the body to go to sleep before the mind has.
So what happens is the body tests the mind to see if it's asleep. If you lay with a silent mind very still for about 25 minutes and are nicely relaxed, your body will eventually send a very strong signal to your mind saying "I'm uncomfortable, please shift your position in bed."
But this is just a ruse! The body is not really uncomfortable, it's just testing to see if it can get a response from the mind. If you ignore this signal, your body waits a few seconds and says "Hmm, the mind must have gone to sleep. Time for me to do the same."
At that point you will literally feel a wave of heaviness come over the body. This wave takes about 5 seconds to complete, and when it's done your body has fallen asleep. This wave is a very odd and distinct feeling. It's something you can't miss. Before you get the uncomfortable sensation you may also feel a little dizzy as if there's a balloon in your upper body and head that's expanding against the inside of your skull and skin. It's not very much pressure but it is there.
There will be no doubt that your body has gone to sleep. If you have silicone putty earplugs in it will be easy to listen to your hearing shift from physical hearing into real time hearing.
So the trick is to lie still until out of nowhere you get a sudden and strong urge to shift your position. It will not be easy to resist it; the body will be somewhat adamant. But if you persist in your deception and fool the body into thinking your mind is asleep then it will follow, and then there you are in mind awake/body asleep!
• You'll have the best luck with this on somewhat less sleep than you usually get then do your attempt in the morning or during your afternoon REM cycle at about 2:00 or 3:00. The first time I got this to work I had only gotten about 3-4 hours of sleep the night before, maybe half my usual sleep time.
• For the time you're laying still be completely still, including your eyes. Don't move your eyes even to look at hypnagogics.
• It's very easy for the mind the fall asleep doing this, you may benefit using a self-repeating timer as a safety net to keep your mind awake.
