Somnokinesis (also known as Sleep Manipulation) is the power to induce sleep and manipulate aspects of sleep, such as dreaming.
The users of this ability are able to manipulate sleep in a variety of forms, including inducing a being to sleep, creating and warping dreams, daydreams and possibly nightmares. Certain aspects of this ability can be achieved through spellcasting or the use of magical objects or substances.
Branches of Somnokinesis
Sleep Inducement is the ability to put beings to sleep at will. The effects of this ability can also be achieved through the use of sleeping spells. When used, the intended target falls to sleep almost instantly.
In "Manic Pixie Nightmare", when Macy Vaughn and Galvin Burdette held a séance with psychic Mama Roz to try to learn more about dealing with Macy's darkness, the spirit of Galvin's grandmother used this ability to force her grandson to sleep, so that she could communicate with him alone in a dream.
Charity Callahan used some sort of sleeping spell on Macy Vaughn in "Memento Mori". The full effect of the spell is not shown, though Macy is shown to rapidly fall backwards before waking up in the Vortex Viribus.
Dream Walking (also known as Dream Leaping) is the ability to project into beings' dreams and manipulate them. The users include themselves within a dream and manipulate the dream around other beings to create a message. The effects of this ability can also be achieved through the usage of the poison from Harry Greenwood's Darklighter.
In "Manic Pixie Nightmare", when Macy Vaughn and Galvin Burdette held a séance with psychic Mama Roz to try to learn more about dealing with Macy's darkness, the spirit of Galvin's grandmother put her grandson to sleep and used this ability in order to communicate with him alone in a dream.
