The sacred Peyote plant has been used in religious ceremonies for thousands of years. In the sacred Peyote gardens are keepers and helpers. There are snakes to keep rats from eating the tender flesh. Insects provide the needed pollination for seeds. On a more spiritual plane, the PEYOTE GUARDIAN SPIRIT symbolizes the role of fertility and protector, and the great mystery of the visible and invisible. Peyote Guardian Spirit (sometimes called Butterfly Girl) represents transformation, awakening the inner light, touching the Spirit Realm, and providing a channel from the spiritual to the material world, sometimes bringing messages. This faerie or sprite presents herself to human eyes as a butterfly or winged insect and pollinates the Peyote flowers.
