Good morning Almondeyez
I too had this quite a while ago, my Mum showed me a few ways in which I could try to meditate with her whilst everything was peaceful and calm, then I returned home to a mad house with a, adhd dog and 9 year old hehe, it didn't work!
So, I tried the following, it's nice and simple and I have not looked back ever since!!
You tube. THE BEST EVER. I searched for meditations for abundance to begin with. Something nice and not too long. I started with the guided meditation first, for around half an hour. Then I lit a white candle and burned white sage sticks.
Then in went my earphones. Not too loud, but loud enough to be able to feel at ease.
And I have never looked back since. Now I play music through Youtube on a daily basis, there are so many to choose from, for everything you need!
I still do guided meditations, I have even Astral travelled, it is an amazing feeling.
But start small, work your way into the bigger things in time.
And I would always say of course to protect yourself first. I now can automatically put on my cloak to shield myself, and have my mirror (magic, I don't walk around with a mirror hehe) handy to block bad intentions and reflect back onto persons. But start basic. Chant to yourself. "I ask for only white light to come through with protection and love."
I don't know if these are all correct, and I may be doing something wrong, but I have found for over the years this has worked with me
