What you may not have noticed is that the Minoans put nipples on a lot of their pitchers and jugs, like the one at the top of this post, from Akrotiri. Why the heck would they do that?

When You’re Asleep, You Can Fly: Movement Dreams

I look forward to flying dreams, as I feel so empowered by them! I feel like a superhero who can go anywhere I want. I am sure you have similar dreams and enjoy the sensation of being like a bird, or even like a god or goddess as you swoop around the sky. Dreams like these, as well as other movement-related dreams, can give you very important clues about your own personal power. Enjoy!

The Top 5 Minoan Path Blog Posts Ever - Including the One that Just Won't Go Away

Last week I looked at the top five blog posts of 2021, a couple of which surprised me. Then I decided I wanted to look back over the seven years (time flies!) that I've been writing this blog and see which posts have been most popular over the long term. In this case, four out of the top five surprised me - and one didn't. At all.

Herewith, the top five Minoan Path posts since I began this blog in 2014, from least popular to most popular. Have you read them all?
