Conscious has several alternative connotations. It could mean something conceived intentionally like for example a 'conscious decision' or a 'conscious endeavor to speak slowly'. It may also be defined as knowing and perceiving or having an awareness of one's surroundings, thoughts or sensations, for example 'He was conscious of his shortcomings' or 'She was conscious for a few minutes after the accident'. Conscious may also denote gradually showing recognition or realization of something like for example 'He did not seem conscious of the danger that lay ahead' or 'she was conscious of what that lifestyle entailed'.

Conscious is therefore both a noun and an adjective. Consciousness is an alternate form of it. Consciousness may be defined as a state of mind associated with qualities like self awareness, sentience and subjectivity. Consciousness has been greatly analysed and studied by cognitive science, neuroscience and psychology.

Definition: Of Conscious:
In Sigmund Freud's psychoanalytic theory of personality, the conscious mind includes everything that is inside of our awareness. This is the aspect of our mental processing that we can think and talk about in a rational way.
The conscious mind includes such things as the sensations, perceptions, memories, feeling and fantasies inside of our current awareness. Closely allied with the conscious mind is the preconscious, which includes the things that we are not thinking of at the moment but which we can easily draw into conscious awareness.
He developed notions on the conscious/pre-conscious and unconscious, relative to the mind.
