I have this ability when my sleep is regular enough and I'm somewhat aware of the time when I fall asleep. I think you probably could have done it without hypnosis, and the relaxation was the key, so that you fell asleep reliably and quickly.

I've got the self-timing ability (or at least did, I haven't tested it lately) including being able to decide when I want to be out of a store-- I can (or could) wander around, looking at whatever I pleased, and be out of the store within a minute or two of when I planned.

My ability kicked in when I'd been watching a lot of tv (not on a computer), so I had a chance to learn what a half hour was.

I consider the ability to monitor clock time unconsciously to be very mysterious.
