Consciousness refers to your individual awareness of your unique thoughts, feelings, memories, sensations, and environment. Your conscious experiences are constantly changing and shifting. For example, in one moment you may be focused on reading this definition and in the next moment your consciousness may shift to the memory of a conversation you had earlier with a friend. Since consciousness is the basis of all reality, any shift in consciousness changes every aspect of our reality.
