That's a trick used to self-induce lucid dreaming or OBEs

Used to access a level of consciousness somewhere between sleep and wakefulness. I've used a similar technique where the person lies in bed on their back and one of their forearms bent upwards at the elbow towards the ceiling. Once the person falls asleep their arm falls and wakes them into this state of consciousness. Needs to be repeated a few times in my experience.
