Fractionation hypnosis allows you to enter a very deep subconscious focus even you’re usually only able to daydream a tiny bit into a very light level of trance.
The trick works like this:
1.) Relax into a light level of trance, for instance by daydreaming for a minute or two
2.) Come out of your daydream for a moment
3.) Relax back into your daydream
“Hypnotic fractionation” means that the second time you enter a daydream you’ll enter a slightly deeper daydream than before.
So how do you use this to lucid dream and have out of body experiences? The idea is that instead of daydreaming you fall totally asleep. You then use a timer that beeps every few minutes to wake yourself up.
It’s very important at this stage not to move. Just allow the timer beep to bring you back to a conscious waking focus for a moment. Then allow yourself to fall right back to sleep, without using any visualizations or mental trickery at all.
Once you use this cycle a couple times, when you wake up you’ll be waking up into more and more of a subconscious waking awareness rather than just a waking awareness.
By not moving, each time you wake up and fall asleep you also make sleep paralysis much more likely. You’ll eventually fool your body into falling asleep while you’re mind stays aware. This creates the perfect opportunity to then turn sleep paralysis into a lucid dream
Usually if you wake up and fall asleep 4 or 5 times in an hour you’ll reach waking sleep paralysis automatically without having to do anything else.
The timer setup you use is very critical to how well it works.
