The Circling of Hands is a Ki development meditation, and is part of the BASIC MEDITATION, PHILOSOPHY and KI SECTION.
Like the BASIC KI MEDITATION, it develops one’s control over the Ki. But it is more than merely a meditation that develops the Ki. Rather, it is a 'meditation-in-action' like the KINHIN WALKING MEDITATION.
This and other 'meditations in action' will allow you to one day access complex meditative states while in combat, or while going about your everyday life. Look at the video below, and then read the tutorial and philosophy that comes after that to master this technique.

USES OF THE CIRCLING OF HANDS
The Circling of Hands, like many of the exercises of the ninja, has multiple benefits.
Firstly, the Circling of Hands is a meditative exercise, a ‘meditation in action’ like the WALKING MEDITATION. It enhances one’s ability to focus one’s mind, and to focus the Ki.
Secondly, the Circling of Hands can be used to recover one’s breath and energies after doing more strenuous training.
Thirdly, the Circling of hands actually acts as a massage for the internal organs, in a system developed in China hundreds of years ago.
HOW TO DO THE CIRCLING OF HANDS
Focus on the tai-ten, the 'one-point' in the center of your body, two inches below the navel. The cosmos flows through you at this point. Close your eyes and visualize a sun of energy blazing out at the tai-ten. Now, starting with the hands near your thighs, rotate them upwards with the arms outstretched, until your hands are above your head. Breathe in using the stomach, or ‘hara’ as you do this, until your lungs are half full.
Now, from above your head, draw the hands down in front of your face, forming them into fists. As you do this, continue to breathe in, and fill your lungs completely.
At this point, begin to exhale slowly as you lower your hands to the level of the tai-ten, and then to their original position in front of your thighs.
Count this as one. You should do between three and five repetitions.

There is a specific method that one can use to harness the full power of one's mind.
You can do so by harnessing the subconscious. If you need to think deeply upon a subject, lie down to relax when you are not tired. Rest your body and your mind as if you were about to sleep. Indeed, you should be so relaxed that falling asleep is a real possibility.
Then begin to think upon the subject at hand. It could be anything – a project you’re working on, a problem that needs to be solved, a work of art, a book. You will find that when you are on the border of sleep and wakefulness, both the conscious and the subconscious mind are harnessed, and that your mind works more efficiently and effectively than is possible in any other situation.
Important note: If you think of an interesting idea in this state, you MUST NOT fall asleep. If you fall asleep, the thought will be lost. You must have a paper or some system of recording your thoughts immediately at hand, and record your thoughts at once.
