I've never actually figured out how to meditate. I've tried before, but I didn't feel anything. I have no idea how to meditate right.

When you tried meditation, how did you do it?

I sat on the floor with my legs crossed and closed my eyes

That's a reasonable beginning but tell me what would you expect to happen in mediation?

To be honest, I have no idea.

I'll teach you a little if you want? If you want me to do that, would answer the following question? Do you agree that normally there are three states of mind? The awake mind, the dreaming mind, the sleeping mind?

I can't say that I have ever really got the hang of meditating either or found a use for it other than just to relax Hahaha

When I do it I sit on the floor with the back of my hands resting on my knees and eyes closed. Then I focus on my breathing, nice slow breaths then visualise light entering and exiting with breathing in and out. Followed by a thought of "well thats enough of that" and going off to do something else lol!

Sometimes, nothing is what happens when you meditate. Once you can be okay with that, you may notice yourself going into a state that is between wakefulness and sleeping. The way you are practicing is definitely where to start, so you've got that going for ya!

Meditation and trance state is where you release all expectations, and just be.

At least in my experience...

I never got a response to my question, however there is a forth state between conciousness, dreamless sleep and dreaming. It is the state you pass through when you move from one of the states to the other. It is the forth state of your high self. (Triana would have referred to this as the hidden forth.) This is the place you want to get to when you meditate.
