Henry Thomas Hamblin (19 March 1873 – 28 October 1958) was an English mystic and New Thought author.

Spiritual teaching[edit]

The essence of Hamblin's mystical experience and philosophy was of the omnipresence, omnipotence and all-goodness of God ("The Kingdom or realm of God is with us now and always").[1][better source needed] He believed that "abounding health, sufficiency of supply, achievement, accomplishment and joy indescribable are the normal state for man.",[This quote needs a citation] and that, to achieve this state, man needed to come into "harmony with Cosmic Law".[This quote needs a citation] Over time the emphasis of Hamblin's written work changed from showing people how to change their lives through right thought and faith, to teaching them how to find a living consciousness of God for himself alone.

Hamblin's work is continued to this day through the Hamblin Trust,[2][better source needed] a registered charity which publishes his books and the magazine New Vision (founded in 1921). The trust, set in three acres of gardens in Bosham, West Sussex, is also a venue for organisations and events promoting healthy living and personal development.[3][better source needed][4][full citation needed]
