You fell for a fortune-telling scam that's as old as the hills. You can read about scams like this here. She has no real powers, and you are not cursed. All of this was a trick to steal your $7K.

Not only can you sue her in small claims court for the return of your money, you can likely get her arrested for fraud and get your money back that way instead.

You should report the fraud to the police, tell them where they can find her and that you want her arrested for the theft of your funds.
