Peyote - Known for its psychoactive properties when ingested, peyote is used worldwide as an entheogen and supplement to various transcendence practices, including meditation, psychonautics, and psychedelic psychotherapy. Peyote has a long history of ritualistic and medicinal use by indigenous North Americans.
Carlos Castaneda said in his many novels, based on shamanism and studying the shamanic ways of the Yaqui peoples in the southwestern US, that Peyote’s spirit, the embodiment of the experience, was known as Mescalito.
My thought was that there could be a spirit of some sort, inspired by these shamanic rituals, roaming about Louloudia, enveloped perhaps in a psychotropic “aura” of some sort that when approached, a native of Louloudia would fall into a dream state with the spirit. Clarity and peace of mind would fall over the Louloudian, an experience unique to them would take place over a period of a few days and after which, the Louloudian would return renewed with a newfound hope and lightness.
