I believe that our lives are composed not only of cognition and motor function but that our psyches also possess causative or selective abilities, which surpass ordinary sensory observation. You can use the term New Thought, magick, positive thinking, ESP, or whatever label you like, but I am convinced from personal experience, from generations of testimony, and from the extraordinary questions emergent from fields including neuroplasticity, quantum mechanics, placebo studies, mind-body medicine, and psychical research that our minds interplay with the surrounding world in a manner that displays extra-physical effect on outcome.
