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.", and that, to achieve this state, man needed to come into "harmony with Cosmic Law". 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]
