But it is true that its sunnah to sleep on your right side or on your back. And its forbidden to sleep on your stomach because satan sleeps like that.
I don't think there is any problem to point your feet towards the kaaba, during sleep or any other time. You should only not go toilet facing the kaaba.
I don't know much about how exactly we should sleep but I do it this way,
Make ablution (wudu) before sleep. Beacause it is said that if you die in your sleep then you'll be in the state of ablution. We should also try to be in ablution all the time, coz death can struck us any time.
Hold your hands together in front of your face and suplicate, recite surah al-fatiha, ayatul kursi, surah al-kafirun(thrice), surah al-ikhlas(thrice), surah al-falaq(thrice), surah al-nas(thrice) and last two verses of surah al-baqara.
Spit three times in your palms and wipe all over your body.
Spitting doesn't to spit out your saliva, just softly blow.
The Prophet used to rub his hands over every part of his body.
And sleep preferrably on your right or back, I think left is also ok but never on stomach. And its ok if you turn over on your stomach while sleeping.
And if see a bad dream, then get up, seek refuge from Allah, spit three times on your left (again not spitting) and change your side, even if you have to change to left and go back to sleeping. But if you were sleeping on your back, don't turn over on your stomach.
And nightmares are from satan and yes, satan is a jinn. But not any ordinary one, only satan can whisper to you, no other jinn can.
There is a barrier between humans and jinns. We both lead two different lives. Neither can we interfere in theirs nor can they interfere in ours. I also heard that in the day of judgement there will be both, humans and jinns.
The thing about freezing when you suddenly get up in the middle of sleep has nothing to with jinns. Sometimes it happens due to the stop of blood flow, if your body was not in a comfortable position, and its your brain that wakes you up when its too late, I think...
It just happens, ok? It has nothing to with jinns or the side you are facing.
I dunno anything about putting your hands under your stomach but, I do know that the Prophet used to sleep on his right side, with his right hand under his right cheek in a way that the palm touches the cheek.
Of course you can stretch out your legs, that would be the best posture.
Don't go falling for jinns, bro.
