Your conscious is your awareness of yourself and the world around you. In the most general terms, it means being awake and aware. In psychology, the conscious mind includes everything inside of your awareness including things like perceptions, sensations, feelings, thoughts, memories, and fantasies.

While conscious and conscience are two very different things, conscious and consciousness are in fact related to one another.

Consciousness is often thought of as a stream, constantly shifting according to the ebb and flow of your thoughts and experiences of the world around you. The conscious consists of what someone is aware of at any particular point in time. It includes what you are thinking about right now, whether it is in the front of you mind or the back. If you are aware of it then it is in the conscious mind.

Example: Right now as you are reading about consciousness you could be thinking about what is being said in the text and that your eyes are tired from staring at this screen. In the back of your mind, however, you might be thinking “wow, Simple Modern Therapy is really cool, I should really schedule an appointment.” Both of these thoughts occur in the conscious mind.
