Paranormal Q&A with Karen Timper (Chapter 2)

Karen Timper

Who are you?

Karen Timper

Do you believe in Reincarnation?

Who do you think you were in your past life (or lives)? I believe in reincarnation. I have never done past-life regression but would love to. I have a strong interest in Ancient Egypt for unknown reasons.

What are your thoughts on Para Unity?

I don’t think that a unification of groups unfortunately could be successful. The field has become too widespread, too many people calling themselves groups and too diverse in the sense of work ethic and attitude. And who would decide who will be in charge? It sounds like it would be a rough subject. I’m all for some type of organization to keep reputable groups and individuals together and keep the riff raff out.

Have you ever investigated a Church?

What are your thoughts on this? Yes. We have investigated both Church and Rectory’s. My thoughts are that any place can have a haunting so long as doors are opened. I don’t think that a place of worship is immune from having activity.

When having a joint investigation with another team(s), how do you select the team(s) or members of other teams that you invite?

I invite people that I trust.

What do you tell someone looking to join a team, what should they look for or ask?

It’s not what they are looking for, it’s what we are looking for.

Any advice to a group just starting out?

Choose your friends wisely and future group members even wiser. Have a period of trial and look for people who have the same standards of work ethic and integrity as you do.

Do you think it’s important to share findings with others in the paranormal community?

Not important.

You run across a team that you feel gives a bad name to the field. How do you handle the situation? Do you confront them about it?

No, people will see what they are all about. Intelligence and experience always prevail.

Do you feel it is important to do a background investigation on the location (land/building) that you’re going to investigate?

It helps, but it can’t always be done. Every effort should be made in the sense that it will help you to decide how and what your team will focus on. It can certainly help when developing the questions you would like to ask when conducting an EVP or Ghost Box Session. We’ve done investigations both ways.
