David will want to know as little about you as possible before "scanning" your auric field to prevent any bias. He will scan all 4 bodies/layers of the aura (, , and ) for key restrictions, then scan all 4 bodies to check the status of all (12 chakras times 4 bodies). When David is finished scanning (or occasionally during), he will briefly discuss his preliminary findings and their significance and probably ask you a few questions to help with clarification and interpretation. After going through a thorough energetic history (see below), he will go into more detail. If there are any "foreign energies" present (i.e. energies that do not belong in your auric field) he will do an .
An energetic history will focus on the chakras. It's purpose is to find key events that have caused major shifts in your energy, causing it to disconnect/shut down. Just as energy follows thought, so too will David direct you chronologically through your life memories, checking your chakras as you go. In addition to focusing on "low points" or traumas (to see what type of situations may have "shut you down"), he will also have you focus on "high points" (when "life was good") to reveal what types of situations and conditions enhance and strengthen your energy ("open you up").
