I have these sentences:
"What percentage of the choices do you make with full confidence? Without a part of you swaying to the alternatives? "

Is using "swaying to" correct? or alternatively: "...Without a part of you pointing (prompting) the alternatives"

Which one sounds better? or none?

The phrase swaying to is fine in that context. You could also use leaning toward. The expression leaning toward is often used when someone is having an inward debate about some issue in their mind.

We had to decide was whether it was a heavy handed restoration or in fact a forgery. I am leaning toward a forgery.

I would avoid pointing or prompting – assuming I understand what you are trying to say in your original sentence.
