Shakira's Gnostic Feminism

In the coming months Shakira will release the music video for her current single "She Wolf".

The clip above is a 20 second preview of the music video. In the clip we see Shakira caged and wearing a leotard. The song will be featured on her upcoming album Loba. The title of the album was inspired by a 1965 Mexican horror film about a female werewolf titled La Loba. In a recent interview Shakira explained the themes featured on the album.

"Loba has been the reflection of my own individual freedom,as a 32 year old woman that feels it has the right to defend her desires. Loba is also a man of that kind and also the gays, is the human being who has its right to defend what it wants." - Shakira

This explanation reminds me of Shakira's previous album Oral Fixation.


In explaining the title and cover art for Oral Fixation Shakira revealed that "Vol. 2 is more of a Jungian sort of thing, since the reference is to a universal archetype of Eve (Adam and Eve) and the original sin. I think that is something that is really subconsciously in our minds. On the cover of Vol. 2 I wanted to add another reason for Eve to bite the forbidden fruit - that would be her oral fixation."

Jungian psychology places an emphasis on exploring the psyche through dreams, art, mythology, religion, and philosophy. His ideas include the concept of psychological archetypes. For the cover of Oral Fixation Shakira uses the Adam and Eve scenario and the forbidden fruit as an archetype.

Shakira positioning herself in the role of Eve and a werewolf and changing the perception of these archetypes from wrong doers to icons of freedom of expression raises question about Shakira and her agenda.

Shakira's interpretation of Eve's story is more along the lines of the Gnostic philosophy than it is with the traditional Christian version of the story (yes, I am aware that Gnosticism predates Christianity and I'm not choosing sides here). While Christians believe that it was a sin for Eve to eat the forbidden fruit from the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil, Gnostics believe that the serpent took Adam and Eve out of the tyrannical constraints of an overbearing God they refer to as the demiurge. Gnostics often refer to God as Godhead which basically means God is not a separate entity to them but rather a spiritual ascension to be obtained through self. The debate over which version came first is far too complicated for me to address in this little blog but it's worth exploring on your own time.

Shakira's biggest hit from Oral Fixation was "Hips Don't Lie" featuring Wyclef Jean. The music video for "Hips Don't Lie" features many of the themes that I've already been exploring on this blog.

First of all the song it self has the theme of dancing which is becoming so obvious. Clearly these songs are not just about dancing. Why would Shakira use symbolism so heavy on the cover of her album if the songs were simply about dropping it like it's hot in the club? Also there is the theme of duality heightened by the presence of the male, Wyclef, and the female, Shakira. This is yet another example of the fusion of male and feminine energy. Notice the use of the word "perfection" which I will get into with Shakira's song "Pure Intuition".

"Why the CIA wanna watch us?"

They sing "no fighting" as Shakira balances out the energy at the end.
Reminds me of this...

No fighting...

Another song and video worth noting is "Pure Intuition".

Let us be wrong and let's begin
A mistake that turns into perfection
I want to see you sliding in
my underworld

This time I plan to let you win
I'll be a victim of my own invention
Let us be wrong and let's begin
Once and for all

What heaven weaves and braids
no man shall undo
I've been custom-made for no one but you
You know it's now or never

I have a feeling inside
( Despacio, despacio, comienzas a caer )
And intuition's always been a woman's guide
( Te siento, te siento, desde antes de nacer )
We've been wanting each other since before we were born
( Adentro, adentro te vas quedando )
And I will love you even after I am gone
(Asi, estoy dispuesta a todo amor)


This time I plan to let you win
I'll be here in false/full subordination
I'll be devoted to your will
Once and for all

Love is only pain disguised as a kiss
So make me feel it now
Let's get on with this
and the sooner the better

I have a feeling inside
( Despacio, despacio, comienzas a caer )
And intuition's always been a woman's guide
( Te siento, te siento, desde antes de nacer )
We've been wanting each other since before we were born
( Adentro, adentro te vas quedando )
And I will love you even after I am gone
(Asi, estoy dispuesta a todo amor)

I have a feeling inside
( Despacio, despacio, comienzas a caer )
And intuition's always been a woman's guide
( Te siento, te siento, desde antes de nacer )
We've been wanting each other since before we were born
( Adentro, adentro te vas quedando )
And I will love you even after I am gone
after I am gone...

Shakira's subversive deconstruction of Christianity sheds light on her role in what many consider to be Illuminati organizations. First of all Shakira is a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador. Shakira was also honored at a United Nations ceremony. Besides that Shakira has performed at Live Earth and is involved with Clinton Global Initiative. The stated mission of rhe CGI is to "strengthen the capacity of people throughout the world to meet the challenges of global interdependence." So basically he is preparing people for the NWO.

    1. In reality she has no connections to them. The producers don't have connections. Not even the CIA or FBI. But they work through all of this. Because the true Illuminati the one Thoth has describe are not from here. They have information and power that is beyond us. They don't believe in God because they know it's no true. Because they are proof of God's nonexistent. They are not devil worshipers. That is what the church made a secret society in 1700 be. Because (though this society had no connections to the real Illuminati)they had information that would debunk God. Their purpose was to enlighten. But the Church made them devil worshipers to control society. And the real Illuminati know that there is no God or Satan because they are from the Lucifer experiment. Though it sounds scary it's not. It's just a way that spirit cuts it's self from reality to build it's own reality. They have no love or compassion. And the only reason they do all this to all of us is because we cause most of their majority to die. So they are here to avenge and to control us. And the only way to do that is to manipulate us through programming. Though they almost are in control of the grid. And this grid is really important because once you control the grid you control every mind. This grid is the blueish glow on the Earth. If you want to learn about the truth. Start with Lemuria, then Atlantis, Hebrews, merukaba's, the naacals, Thoth, sacred Geometry, Akhenaten, The Essene Brotherhood. Jesus Christ. And everything else. It's time to wake up.

  7. Well first .... there is no proof that shakira Is in the Illuminati .... and above all she is a good person..... and besides she didn't do it to get into the music bussines..... she gas been in it since age 14 but her first two albums weren't successful.... she also wasn't discovered by any one. ... she wasn't automatically put on the top like most other members of the Illuminati ..... she slowly climbed the ladder..... so I don't believe she is in it.... she is a great person and is but a few people who really are trying to help

  8. You are all a bunch of idiots with too much time on your hands. The only reason the "Illuminati" exist is so people can make money brainwashing people to believe everything thing you see around you is Illuminati. If I had my way I'd hang everyone soul for spreading fear through deception in order for financial gain. Just like the doomsayers about the world ending in Dec 2012 because some idiot decided to use it to sell books and everyone bought into it. Learn to think for yourself and don't believe the bs people feed you otherwise you might as well leave this Earth because will live a very sad life full of fear. I believe in God and as long as I keep him near me I am free.

    2. Actually the Mayan's didn't say the world would end. Actually it was meant to be the day when Christ consciousness would be felt. But it's not something that just happens immediately, it's a process that you have to except.
