How to stop being psychic?

I know this sounds crazy, who wouldn't want to be psychic? me. I hate it. it's all fun in games until you kill things. It started right before I started 7th grade (I am now in 8th), I was at camp and I was wondering what would happen if my hamster died while I was at camp, whether they would tell me through letter or when I got home. They told me when I got home. after this I have been thinking of things and then they happen, I think of a song and it comes on the radio and such. I didn't mind it, I thought it was cool. Then it was right before school started this year I was thinking about how when my second hamster died I would immediately call my friend and talk to her about it to make me feel better. I went in my room and my hamster was laying dead in her house. I did not call me friend. she still doesn't know. I haven't seen her since this summer. Then my third hamster, it was Sunday, it October or November I woke up from a dream that my third hamster had died. You know what happened. At school a Highschooler got cancer last year and last week they sent her home from the hospital because there was nothin more they could do. this morning I was think about how she could've died right then while I was thinking about it. I found out around lunchtime she had. See? I hate this. It is works of Satan and I am tired of him screwing with my mind. Please help me. I hate this.

You are suffering from a delusion as a result of "confirmation bias" (also known as "cherry picking") which is leading you to "think magically". What that means is that you have convinced yourself - on some deep level - that your thoughts have supernatural powers - you have lots of thoughts - but you only remember those thoughts about the animals and the sick student - thereby convincing yourself that you have these powers. You don't. Nobody does. Nobody ever did. But - we know now that humans have a part of their brains that are involved with superstitious thinking (which is why it seems so real).

Praying to God is the best thing you could do. Ask Him to help you through this and to show you right from wrong

The hamster version of death? I like it. That would sound great on a first date, but it may just be coincidence

It's no just the lack of punctuation. You didn't capitalize the first letter of the sentence, you should have put an is in there, and if you're P.S. someone, it's a new sentence. So your first post should have read, "She's in 8th grade, lay off." And your second should have read, "Way to go, grammar nazi. P.S. The comma was for you."

You are not causing these things.
You do need to see a counselor.

You're not causing them. You're PREDICTING that they will happen.
