Freud’s three levels of consciousness are conscious, preconscious, and unconscious. In Freud’s model of the mind, the conscious mind is formed by thoughts and feelings that a person is actively aware of and can reason. The preconscious mind is made up of all available memory that has not been accessed by the conscious mind.

The unconscious mind consists of reprised instincts, feelings and urges that are negative and shameful. Freud theorized that the preconscious and unconscious exert a powerful influence over the conscious mind without a person's awareness. Freud’s psychoanalytic theory teaches that the unconscious mind can change through the use of psychoanalysis.

A. the conscious mind is what you are aware of at any particular moment, your present perceptions, memories, thoughts, fantasies, feelings, what have you. working closely with the conscious mind is what freud called the preconscious, what we might today call available memory: anything that can easily be made conscious, the memories you are not at the moment thinking about but can readily bring to mind. the largest part by far is the unconscious. it includes all the things that are not easily available to awareness, including many things that have their origins there, such as our drives or instincts, and things that are put there because we cant bear to look at them, such as unacceptable impulses and the memories and emotions associated with trauma. ego, superego, id.
