The subconscious, which is unrestricted by logic allows a certain flow of ideas. This might border on intuition, but if the ideas are too circumscribed by subjectivity, they will not correspond to the outside world around us. When we dream at night, we are dreaming using the subconscious level of consciousness.
The subconscious mind is close to the super-conscious, where real intuition is. They both represent a flow of thoughts without actual logical obstructions. The subconscious is more open to intuitions from the super-conscious, sometimes receiving them and usually mixing them with confusing imagery.
This is also strongly affected by the opinions of others, which a lot of times can cloud the ability to use true guidance. This level of consciousness divides the world into categories (either/or), and is problem oriented. It is difficult to be completely certain of decisions drawn from this level, because as we said before it is many times clouded by opinions. It ultimately doesn't have the ability to distinguish which one is best. It is best to not solely rely on this level because we would find ourselves lacking in certainty and slipping into a state of perpetual indecision.
Contrasting, the super-conscious sees things as a part of a whole and it can easily draw solutions. In this level, the problem and the solution are seen as one, as though the solution was a natural outgrowth from the problem.
