what does this mean is it holding your nose and pushing breath in it?

wat can i do to stay down longer? kicking tecnique? way of breathing before going dowN?

RIGHT NOW I AM ABLE TO GO DOWN TO mtrs but then i have to get back imideatly; ANY ADVICE!!!!
how to practice this?

stand in front of a mirror, hold your nose shut, try to blow it up lika a baloon..now you should hear a small noise and also feel the presure on the inside of you ears..
..when under water, do this when you start to feel the presure of the water on your ears..this is equalizing...you only need to do it when going down deeper, not when heading for the sureface.
be carefull in the begining, you can hurt yourself.
