Once overtaken by the occult, an ex-psychic is speaking out about culture’s obsession with crystals, herbs, and other items tied to witchcraft.

Jenn Nizza, a Christian who now shares her testimony on social media and through her new podcast, “Ex-Psychic Saved,” warned about young people’s increased use of such tools.
“This is so New Age … using crystals for protection, to ward off evil, for enlightenment, to bring about psychic awareness, to place on chakras, thinking you’re going to open them up and use the energy from the crystals,” she told CBN’s Faithwire. “This whole thing is relying on energy with crystals.”
Nizza reflected on her past use of crystals as a psychic, noting she used a heart-shaped rose quartz pendant to try and draw love toward herself. She said people use crystals for other reasons as well, including protection against illness.
“It’s really so scary,” she said, noting the use of such tools is growing.
Watch Nizza break down the increasing obsession with crystals:
Nizza is correct about the pervasiveness of the issue, as the Springtide Research Institute told CBN’s Faithwire it found 44% of young people between the ages of 13 and 25 “engage with herbs/crystals as a spiritual practice.” Shockingly, 21% do so every week.
These numbers have the ex-medium concerned.
“I’m heartbroken by that … because it just shows how deceptive the devil is … and how he’s not even hiding,” she said. “These kids are so exposed to witchcraft these days and they’re really looking for something — they’re really looking to feel better, they’re really looking for identity, they’re looking for love. They’re looking for all the things that only God can do.”
Tragically, Nizza said many aren’t hearing about God and are instead learning about tools like crystals. She said such mechanisms are “trendy” and made to look glamorous but are actually “spiritually dangerous.”
“It’s witchcraft,” she said. “It’s witchcraft, because you are invoking. Once you go to that crystal and you think you’re going to manifest something from that, whether it’s health protection, increase your happiness, increase your wealth … you are invoking demons.”
Nizza said people mistakenly think there is power in the crystals but believes, instead, that use of such tools — something precluded throughout Scripture — attracts evil. She said the demonic realm manipulates circumstances and plants ideas.
“The demons are the ones that have the power,” she said. “The crystal is a rock that God created.”
Nizza continued, “They’re making a choice, willingly, to put their faith and trust in God’s creation rather than the Creator.”
In the end, Nizza said the increased use of such tools is tragic but cannot be “shocking” in light of culture’s trajectory, with the occult making its way into entertainment and mainstream culture.
These occultic practices, including tarot cards and the Ouija board, are being mainstreamed and creating spiritual dangers many simply fall into.
“The devil’s … bold, and he’s blatant, and he’s out there,” Nizza said. “And the kids are exposed to it.”
She encouraged people to use their ministries and platforms to combat this messaging and to reach people with truth. Nizza, an avid social media user and podcaster, leverages technology to share her incredible story.
She also encouraged parents to talk with their kids about these topics.
“We need to do our best to keep making the kids aware,” Nizza said. “The world is trying to push God out further and further.”
