Type of Consciousness

Learn the different types of consciousness

Subconscious

It is relatively dim in awareness: it is the stuff where dreams are made.

The subconscious can all too easily intrude itself on our conscious awareness, tricking us into thinking we're getting intuitive guidance, when actually we're merely being influenced by past impressions and unfilled desires.

Conscious

Dividing and separating the world into either/or categories, the conscious level of awareness is problem-oriented.It’s difficult to be completely certain of decisions drawn from this level, because the analytical mind can see all the possible solutions. But ultimately it doesn’t have the ability to distinguish which one is best.

Superconscious

The conscious mind is limited by its analytical nature, and therefore sees all things as separate and distinct. We may be puzzled by a certain situation, but because it seems unrelated to other events, it’s difficult to draw a clear course of action.
