    You should expand this question by giving some examples of when/how you might use the word. As it is now, your question seems too vague. For example, what's wrong with unaware? You could be unaware that there's a snake on the ground in front of you, you could be unaware of an old proof to a math problem, you could be unaware of a smear of ketchup on your chin. In what context are you thinking of using this word?

    Do you mean "aware, but not conscious of the awareness" (if that's even possible) or "unaware"? Sep 12 '12 at 13:37

Subliminal is defined as:

existing or functioning below the threshold of consciousness or below the threshold of conscious perception

A subliminal message is one that you may not be consciously aware of.
