Occasionally VisionsOfAnotherSelf occur by having a character actually travel to a place, whether it's in the actual past, an AlternateUniverse or a MirrorUniverse. Just as, if not more often though, it will be a constructed fantasy, [[ItWasAllJustADream a dream]], a hallucination, a flashback (or someone else's flashback), a holodeck experience or the fantasy equivalent thereof, part of a VisionQuest or just a very active imagination. The probability of one of these occurring increases dramatically if {{Reincarnation}} is involved. Other times, this is done without the present-day characters even being aware of the past, but the writers playing up the parallels between the two for the audience's benefit.

* In TeresaEdgerton's ''[[{{Celydonn}} The Grail and the Ring]]'', travel between the 'real' world, Ynys Celydonn, and the AlternateUniverse of the Inner Celydonn, is introduced. One of the first rules of such travel is to avoid meeting yourself if possible, because to do so courts madness.
