Turning the Pages: How Exploring My Past Lives Led Me on the Journey of Healing Memories, and What I Learned While Traveling Back in Time


It’s one thing to live an extraordinary life but another to live multiple lifetimes.

Author Alla Kaluzhny knew her life was not her only one. What started as an interest in past lives quickly became a calling as she set out to discover her past lifetimes. Through meditation and guidance, she was able to connect with her past selves and eventually pen it in an illuminating read.

In her book, “Turning the Pages,” she pens her experiences from her past lives. From existing as a courageous knight in battle to living as a humble Mayan girl—the author intricately links her past lives with her current one.

Aside from her experiences, she also writes down her observations. By utilizing her keen senses, the author was able to weave past events and figure out how it affects her present. Knowing how these chains of events occur enables her to discover some lessons she must learn and issues she must resolve. As she writes about her connection with her past selves, I feel that we, too, must understand how to do the same if our souls are to become better versions in the next lifetime.

The author also writes about lessons on self-forgiveness, patience, and kindness. When you live multiple lifetimes, it’s easy to assume that some lives may be more difficult than others. However, the author makes it a point never to assume the quality of life based on how it ended. It was truly humbling to read about her experience with her former life as a Mayan girl, which may be my favorite part of the book so far!

Nevertheless, “Turning the Pages” is a tour de force of self-exploration—not just in this life but all of them as we continue the cycle. If you have questions about past lives and how they can affect your pages, this book can answer them.

Turning New Pages: How Exploring My Treasured Friendships And Our Past Lives’ Connections Led Me On the Wild Rides Through The Mysteries Of Life.

Friendship, as told in Turning New Pages, is the invisible glue binding us together across lifetimes, with shared laughs, lessons, and a whole lot of heart. In this new novel, Alla Kaluzhny shares the fascinating stories of her friendships giving insight into the nature of human relationships and the eternal dance of our existence. It’s like a time machine for your soul!

The book mixes the author’s own experiences with a deep dive into spirituality, connecting past lives with present-day friendships. Each chapter feels like finding a hidden gem, baring reincarnations and ties that transcend time and space, even if you’re not sure you believe in all of that!

For example, her friendship with Marilyn. The chance of both women attending the same workshop, recognizing each other as University of Santa Monica graduates, and finding out they share the same birthday shows the powerful energy that brought them together. Their meeting felt divinely arranged and their bond deepened as they uncovered past life connections in a previous incarnation. This unique friendship, characterized by mutual support and a sense of destiny, shows the remarkable ways in which seemingly random events can lead to meaningful and life-altering unions.

She met Lena in fourth grade and remained close friends throughout their school years and beyond, discovering a past life connection as Native American sisters. Their friendship is special because it endured for over fifty years, encompassing significant life events like introducing Lena to her future husband and supporting each other through personal trials.

She had a fortuitous meeting with another woman named Alla in the Soviet Union during the 1980s. Their initial bond blossomed into a lifelong friendship that endured time and distance, surpassing the hardships of immigration and many trials. Their closeness is special not only because of the unusual circumstances of their meeting but also due to their shared name and the way they have remained unwavering sources of support for each other. The story’s spiritual dimensions, including a touching account of their past life connection cannot be explained in the physical three-dimensional world.

Then there’s an enduring friendship with Sophia, spanning over three decades—rooted in an almost predestined connection that began with a sense of déjà vu and evolved throughout decades of shared experiences, living through all life cycles. Their relationship, strengthened by marriage ties and shared life events like the Northridge earthquake and personal losses, has weathered numerous challenges, turning difficulties into opportunities for growth. A friendship extraordinary not only for its longevity but also for its ability to withstand the test of time and life’s many adversities.

There’s also an extraordinary bond between the author and Jennifer, formed through spiritual programs. Meeting on Zoom in 2021, they quickly became friends and discovered a profound connection, believing their relationship was Divinely arranged. Jennifer’s inspiring story of surviving the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing and her subsequent journey to recovery was documented in her book Shattered and its film adaptation, There’s Got To Be More To Life. The author reflects on shared past life memories, a friendship that exceeds this lifetime. This chapter highlights the special, almost mystical nature of friendship, grounded in spirituality, mutual support, and an unshakeable belief in a higher purpose. Stories like this enrich the whole book!

Each past life story is not just a recollection but a lesson in love, loss, healing, and the eternal nature of the soul’s voyage. The personal growth and healing that the author and her friends experienced inspire readers to not just be passive observers but are encouraged to reflect on their own lives and relationships. And to ponder on the deeper connections that may exist beyond what we see and remember. It’s all about the transformative power of connection that reveals a universal truth: we are all one.

It’s impossible not to get drawn into the intimate recounting of friendships that have lasted lifetimes—through the authenticity of the author’s voice and the vividness of her memories. It’s truly comforting, making you feel as if you are part of these great discoveries, and the storytelling is inviting, making you feel like you’re having a conversation with someone close.

So, whether you are a skeptic or a believer in reincarnation, the book’s gentle guidance invites you to explore these ideas with an open mind. As you flip the pages, each chapter reinforces the idea that every encounter and every friendship carry a purpose, offering opportunities for growth, healing, and a greater understanding of our place in the universe. This is a book that lingers in your thoughts, sparks curiosity, and opens your heart to boundless possibilities. You are not alone, your journey never ends, you are many things—a healer, a teacher, a friend, and an eternal traveler.

Turning New Pages is more than just a sequel to her previous novel, Turning the Pages, it is also a spiritual guide. A warm read that makes you think about your own connections in a whole new light.

Turning the Pages (Screenplay)


In Turning the Pages, Alla, a serene and introspective protagonist, embarks on a deeply spiritual and mysterious journey of self-discovery. Set against the backdrop of her contemporary home, the narrative begins with Alla uncovering an old, ornate book embossed with cryptic symbols. This book, however, is no ordinary tome; it serves as a portal to her past lives, revealing a multitude of personas that Alla has inhabited across centuries.

The screenplay masterfully interweaves elements of drama, mystery, and spirituality, creating a rich tapestry that explores the depths of the human soul. Each page turned by Alla conjures translucent images of her past selves—spectral figures who gather around her dining table to share their poignant stories. From a noble medieval warrior to a tender Mayan girl, these past lives are depicted with a depth and emotional resonance that is both haunting and enlightening.

One of the screenplay’s standout features is its ability to balance intricate storytelling with vivid, atmospheric descriptions. The opening scene, set in Alla’s warmly decorated living room, immediately draws the reader in with its detailed and evocative imagery. The ambient music, the large amethyst crystals, and the soft lighting all contribute to a sense of calm that is soon juxtaposed with the surreal and mystical elements that follow.

The dialogue is another strong point of “Turning the Pages.” Alla’s interactions with her past selves are imbued with a sense of reverence and introspection, reflecting her journey towards understanding and healing. Each character’s story is a piece of a larger puzzle, revealing the complexities and interconnectedness of Alla’s soul. The screenplay’s ability to maintain a coherent and engaging narrative while delving into such diverse and rich character backgrounds is commendable.

The screenplay also excels in its thematic depth. It tackles profound questions about identity, purpose, and the nature of the soul’s journey. The spiritual elements are woven seamlessly into the narrative, providing a contemplative layer that invites the reader to reflect on their own life’s path and the possibility of past lives influencing the present.

Furthermore, the screenplay’s structure is well-crafted, with each scene building upon the last to create a cohesive and compelling arc. The pacing is deliberate yet engaging, allowing the reader to fully immerse themselves in Alla’s journey without feeling rushed.

In conclusion, “Turning the Pages” is a beautifully written and thoughtfully composed screenplay that stands out for its rich character development, evocative descriptions, and profound thematic exploration. It is a story that not only entertains but also invites deep reflection, making it a compelling read for anyone interested in the mysteries of the soul and the interconnectedness of past and present lives.
