Intention, determination and confirmation
I've had three dreams in a row about highly unlikely manifestations using I/M, and I'm not so sure I've ever dreamed about this before, so it seems significant. In the first of the dreams, the spoken message was "Intention, determination and confirmation."
In this dream, my mom (who passed away many years ago) was back, and I was really happy about this. At some point, I wondered if I was dreaming, and realized I was. This made me feel truly bummed. I sent an intense request to God/Jesus/Guardian Angels to keep this dream going, as I was afraid I'd wake up at that point.
After this, I basically forgot it was a dream, but I still knew she was going to leave and we only had a short time. As usual, when she's in my dreams, she was all happy and content, like none of this visiting/leaving is any big deal. I wanted to show her a vintage blue Pyrex bowl I had been lucky to pick up at a rummage sale. It replaced a blue bowl she had broken a really long time ago that was part of a set. I went in some kitchen where there were a lot of dirty dishes, including this blue bowl, and I washed the bowl. While I was washing it, it turned into a spatula or something.
This was upsetting, because I REALLY wanted to show her the blue bowl! I glanced all around but didn't see the bowl. The only place it could be was hidden under a couple large dirty pans. I felt something like a complete and total determination that it was there, even though I knew it couldn't be there. With this total determination, I picked up the pans and voila', there was the blue bowl.
Immediately I heard in my mind the phrase, "Intention, determination and confirmation."
This goes very opposite of ideas I've had lately about letting go, going with the flow and so on. My intention in the dream was like a laser beam and it created magic.

"Intention, determination and confirmation"
That really highlights a paradox or a tention between diffferent suggestions or strategies in the I/M realm. Here is something that I have been thinking about along those lines. Detachment clearly has value in this process. Detachment, for me, is the lack of emotional tie or response and it is devoid of valuation (neither good or bad just being). Determination can be viewed as a way of keeping the intention in attention or awareness, keeping it in focus. From this perspective determination and detachment are not mutually exclusive.
I have read books and numerous posts in which people express an intention and then at times actually forget about it only to remember some time later when the manifestation comes through or even later when they come across notes they had made after the manifestation is actuallized.
Both approaches seem to work at different times, for diffferent people, under different circumstances. It would be interesting to know if there is some causal relationship at work here.

I wasn't emotionally detached in the dream at all, though. It felt imperative that I make that blue bowl appear.
In the second dream, I thought I had bought a steno pad from the dollar store, and when I got home, it turned out to be a more standard notebook. For whatever reason in the dream, I really, really didn't want to return the notebook. (I don't know why.) So I tried the method I had done with the blue bowl, and closed the bag, sending a laser beam of intention to swap out the notebook with the steno pad, and when I looked, there was now a steno pad instead of a notebook.
I guess I'm trying to figure out if my mind is trying to tell me something important with these dreams.
