How to use sub in a sentence?

  3. H.W. Mann:

    One critical point related to stress vs relaxation, with regards to consciousness, is that stress takes us out of our conscious mind, and into our sub-conscious mind. A fast reactionary mode necessary for survival, but locking us into our programming, pre-programming not of this moment, but of the past, a mere shadow of life, not a living moment. By proper meditation, we shift our physical and mental state from the state of disease, to a state of healing, and collectively we do this on a planetary scale. We also shift from being governed by the sub-conscious, to a conscious state of mind. When we do this collectively, we complete the collective mind.

  4. Dave Limp:

  5. Barry Svrluga:
