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.
