From my own experience, I understand that there are a couple of things relevant to the process of interacting with the Collective Consciousness.
1) send = receive:
When presented with options, you choose, which option(s) you would like to look into in more detail and then, which option(s) you’d like to take into account in your next action.
Yes, the Knowing is conveying to you what others have experienced in similar circumstances, so you might be interested, however....
It does so by resonating on your own experiences. It does so by reminding you of cause & effect relations you have experienced yourself.
That is: given your energy investments, because they compose the message you convey in energy language.... what you ‘ say’ in words is of minor significance.
But if you would like to play with the idea that you have got freedom of choice... you might like to make actively, consciously different choices...
Before you engage in making ( drastical) changes in the physical word, I would advise to keep an eye on your metaphysical world too and the messages you convey in your energy investments. Do they match, or do they conflict?
In my experience: the more they match, the more you happily and confidently know what you are doing with (your) life.
