Try meditation on your own terms. Take the pressure off. Cut on the meditation music without a voice in the background. Some find it better when they are not concentrating on the breath, but more on their thoughts… watching them… but not interacting with them. Get to the point where you are on the verge of sleep, but are still aware of your surroundings. Don’t bother with a timer, because you will be focused on it… wondering when is it going to be over. Go at your own pace and your own time. Think of it like this…your Ancestors are already around you, literally. They SEE, FEEL and KNOW your thoughts and emotions. So when you meditate, your making it easier to communicate on your end…not theirs.
