Meditation makes me light headed?

Whenever I try and meditate, I start feeling light headed and have to cut out after a while. I can meditate for long enough in order to completely relax myself, but even then it’s only 5 minutes or so and then I have to stop. I read about the seven chakra’s and felt what I can only describe as the sensation of my forehead opening up, and full of light, which I assume was my head chakra. Is there anything I can do to stop the intensity or anything I can tell myself to help me keep on breathing.
Also, what does It mean when the crown chakra opens up?
