Opening the third Eye Chakra - question

While breathing in and out of my third eye, pressure started to occur. It is very subtle not painful somewhat pleasant and in and out. But during my breathing it is progressively getting harder and harder and I was at a point where I could have kept going but the pressure would have continued to get harder. Is that a normal thing to happen when you're beginning to open this chakra? Perhaps if I hadn't stopped would I have had some profound experience? I felt as if I would have but was a tad bit scared.

third eye

I am glad that you are experiencing the sensations on third eye.But one has to be very careful in this process as it is not like that others chakras and it is very sensitive in all sense.I would advise you to be in touch with one who has already crossed this stage as if not given due care,it is possible of its explosion/rupture of third eye due to accumulation of heavy energy at this point,you have to learn to move/channel this energy to Crown chakra ,only then your purpose will solve.
Seek the guidance of a GURU.
Best of luck.

Yes, that was my experience too. It went on in various forms for a few months. I suggest you take it slowly and not force it. When the mental focus of attention was relaxed, the chakra would open and the energy flow could become painful. At one point, simply closing my eyes would open the chakra, which made meditation impossible and sleeping almost impossible. Please be very gentle in encouraging it, and give it time to clear a path.
