Meet Amy Boyer Colgan of Hope Fulfilled and The Crazy Trailblazer in Downtown Long Beach

Today we’d like to introduce you to Amy Boyer Colgan.

Thanks for sharing your story with us Amy. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
“What happened to the Colgan’s? That is a very good question and one I know many of you are asking…… It has been a challenging, life threatening, emotionally exhausting, destiny altering kind of year.

I was dying…Everything within myself was telling me this truth……I lost my health, I lost my face, I endured more pain than any person should ever have to suffer, I lost my child for a season, I lost my home, many believed I had lost my mind…………But I was not crazy…. come to find out we were living in toxic black mold, coupled with a gas leak, and possibly also coupled with the long term effects of lyme disease which I may have contracted in Australia 19 years ago…… Then, after being misdiagnosed, I was held against my will in a Los Angeles mental facility for 11 days!!!! …….A few days after being released, we were then forced to leave our home and left homeless.

Five days after we left our apartment, I miraculously began to heal. Within one month of starting Young Living Essential Oils I was healed – and we have all the blood lab results to show!”

Health is a state of complete harmony of the body, mind and spirit. When one is free from physical disabilities and mental distractions, the gates of the soul open.

I started my IG account (@crazytrailblazer) a few years ago for my son because I was dying from this horrific illness… The account was a place for me to leave him memories and wisdom… then an incredible miracle happened…I healed and became an artist. (which I was not before this happened) The IG account has now become more for me to relearn life and start enjoying every moment ❤️

Today my passion is to be there and a resource for those caught in the abyss of pain. I am here to throw the life preserver and pull those in need out. Also, to capture life’s beautiful moments as they present themselves to us daily.

Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
19 years battle with Lyme disease, Half of my face was paralyzed for 2.5 years, I couldn’t taste anything for 1.5 years, misdiagnosed as “bipolar/ schizophrenic’ which was due to black mold exposer and held against my will and the will of my family for 11 days in a mental institution and forced into treatments. I was unable to experience pleasure for years…. it took four essential oils, colloidal silver and a plant-based diet to bring me back to life. My brain changed and I was left with a beautiful artist gift in the healing wake. You can see my work on my IG @crazytrailblazer and @vegantrailblazer.

We’d love to hear more about your work and what you are currently focused on. What else should we know?
I am a multipotentialite. Degrees in psychology, criminology and theology have fueled my passion to assist the least, the last and the lost. I believe that success is not the key to happiness. Happiness is the key to success. If you love what you are doing, you will be successful. I love what I do! What is it that I do you might be asking yourself about now. I wear several hats.
