The Mind

The Conscious Mind

The conscious mind as the name implies is the conscious part of our brain. It is the part of our mind or brain we think, analyze, plan, evaluate and reason with. It is the part of our mind that makes us aware of our environment. It is the objective or thinking mind.

The Subconscious Mind

This part of our mind stores and retrieves data. In our subconscious mind is stored our emotions, long term memory, feelings, habits and addictions etc. All the information that may not be stored immediately or processed by our conscious mind is stored in the subconscious mind.

Supra Conscious Mind

Merriam Webster definition of Supra consciousness:

- existing or functioning above the level of the conscious, rational, or logical


I also like the below definition:

- Supra consciousness is an attribute of the Innermost (the Spirit). The faculty of Supra Consciousness is intuition. (

I believe this is the consciousness of our own spirit.

The conscious mind makes us aware of what is outside of ourselves. The subconscious mind is the consciousness existing beneath (hence the prefix sub) our conscious awareness. The prefix sub can also mean under or less than or beneath. The word subconscious makes sense since our present brain evolved from our reptilian ancestors, hence its name, the reptilian brain. That’s the part responsible for our subconscious mind tasks like breathing or keeping our organs and other systems working. (

The supra conscious is the consciousness that is separate, above of our consciousness and even subconsciousness.

The Universal or God Mind

There are some who believe that there exists a Universal mind or 'God Mind'. It may also be referred to as Infinite Intelligence or Super Conscious Mind. Wikipedia gives the following definition of Universal Mind:

'Universal Mind is the universal higher consciousness or source of being in some forms of esoteric or New Thought and spiritual philosophy.'
