Transcendence is experience that extends or exists beyond the limits of ordinary experience or comprehension.
Spiritual dimensions and synchronicity are examples of transcendence, pointing to a spirit or greater consciousness beyond the human, but not beyond universal nature. Spiritual experience might connect you to a particular spirit within nature, or to the spirit or energy of nature itself.
Consciousness refers to your individual awareness of your unique thoughts, memories, feelings, sensations, and environment.
It is the awareness or perception of an inward psychological or spiritual fact: intuitively perceived knowledge of something in one’s inner self, and can also be translated as perception or intelligence.
Because consciousness is such a wide concept of connection, it has similar (some would say the same) properties as energy.
