Hi Jamie,  Perhaps you are trying too hard or think meditating needs to be totally free of thoughts – when that is a fallacy.  Instead, view thoughts as clouds floating across the open sky of your mind – you notice they are there but you simply let them float by and don’t get distracted by them – you keep coming back to the motionless sky behind them. 

I would like to offer this I AM or I-Exist technique I learned from one of my many teachers.  Perhaps you will find it helpful. It starts simply by taking a deep breath, then sigh or exhale, and relax your thoughts and ideas for 2 to 5 seconds, and gently place your attention on the sense of being here, NOW.  Simply feel the feeling of I-AM or I-Exist.  In a moment of pure Here-and-Now recognition, the idea and sense of there being “a world out there” vanishes—even if just for 2 to 5 seconds. As a result, we taste a real ease, a homecoming of sorts, even joy—as well as centeredness, truthfulness, and clarity.  Practice this I-Exist exercise 12 times throughout the day – just for a few moments of time, then continue on with your day, till the next moment of pause.  By doing so, you will have approximately 60 seconds every day in which to recognize the simple truth and feeling of the NOW moment -- awake, alive, and free -- beyond the realm of your busy thinking mind. Give yourself permission to enjoy a break from your own inner chatter for a few seconds.  You won’t regret it and you will find that you look forward to experiencing it again and again throughout the day.

Meditation is nothing more than short moments of I-Exist recognition, one after the other, for a period of time – usually 20 minutes (but you can even start with 5 minutes and work your way incrementally up to 20). In other words, you give yourself the gift of ceremony — of connecting with the silence within to explore the clarity of awareness and the presence of Now; of spending time with nothing but your own Self. Start your meditation by sitting on a comfortable chair, preferably one with a straight back which supports your spine and with feet placed flat on the floor.  Take 3 to 7 deep, relaxing, slow breaths and sigh with sound as you exhale (it really helps the physical body to release any tension that it may be holding when you exhale with sound).  Utilize the 4/11 Breathing Technique described on TSB website:  place your tongue against the top of your mouth or the back of your top row of teeth; inhale as deeply as you can to the count of 4, then without pause exhale as completely as you can to the count of 11, then without pause inhale to the count of 4, exhale to 11.  Continue breathing this way until you totally relax into it and breathing becomes simple, easy and natural. In the beginning, you may also find it helpful to set an intention for your meditation and say it out loud before beginning, for example, “It is my intention for the next 5/10/15/20 minutes to relax deeply into my Being, my I AM awareness.  It is my intention to withdraw my interest from useless mental chatter and to instead observe when thoughts arise, letting them float by as I remain unaffected by them.  When I get distracted by thoughts, I will simply choose – with no judgment whatsoever and in my own good time – to return to the Now moment of recognizing that I Exist here and now and enjoy that moment of clear awareness of presence when it occurs.”

I love this! So much so that I printed a copy, and hung it where I could see it every day.
