    When I meditate, I feel a strong pressure on my

    forehead, then some other part of my vody... Like eyes or face, throat, etc. I also feel as if an electric vibration is passing between my thumb and finger. Then sometimes there is like an electro magnetic field around some part of my body.. Does anyone know more about this.
