Yes. The 'o-ring' method. You make an 'o' with one of your hands, and try to pull it apart with the fingers of your other hand. I'm not sure what the 'right' fingers or the right hands are, you can look them up or, better yet, experiment with what feels right.
You may find a short ritual useful. Make an intonation like "Is (x) integrous and wholesome for my consciousness?" then command your fingers to 'resist' and then try to pull them apart. Holding strong indicates a positive response, coming apart indicates a weak response. You'll need to play around with it before it will become a reliable guide.
