Henry Thomas Hamblin

The Power of Thought

This is about changing our mental attitude in order to come into harmony with the Divine Idea. Thought is the basis of success and prosperity. The world today is in its current state because of mankind’s collective thinking. This work is not about suppressing negative thoughts which can be destructive too, but transmuting them instead. Chapters include: The Overcoming of Fear and The Effect of Thought on Health.

Within You is the Power  

This being one of Hamblin's more popular books, it has sold over 200,000 copies.

“There is a power lying hidden in man, by the use of which he can rise to higher and better things...” writes Hamblin. The work serves to help bring the inner power of mind and depression in harmony with Universal Law. Chapters include: The Secret of Abundant Supply, Overcoming Limitations and Awakening Inner Powers.


Henry Thomas Hamblin was born at Walworth, London in 1873. Born into a poor family, he was determined to emerge from the rut which everyone was destined to fall into without being able to afford proper school and training.  All through his life Hamblin had experienced visionary experiences where he came in contact with a Divine Presence : " ... It is not possible to describe such an experience," he wrote. " All care, anxiety and fear vanished, and I felt that I was cradled in Divine Love.... The deep peace of the Eternal flowed through me like a river; yet at the same time it was as though I was being carried along on a stream of Divine Bliss..."  

 It was around the early1920's that he began to write. The words seemed to flow from him. He found writing clarified his thoughts. One of his first books written in this new phase of his career was Within You Is The Power, which was to sell over 200,00 copies. Hamblin believed that there is a source of abundance within which, when contacted, could change a person's entire life. As long as people blamed their circumstances they were stuck in the 'victim role', but if they moved in harmony with their inner source their life could be full of abundance and harmony.
