However, there are methods of meditation where you put yourself in a relaxed resting mind, and then 'drop' a question or thought into your mind and notice which feelings arise. Don't judge yourself or question those feelings, just allow them to happen and note them. Afterwards you may reflect and learn something about how you feel.
I hope this helps! The real key is to be consistent. This is definitely a skill, and it takes time to learn. Stick with it!
You should try different types of meditation and not stick to just one type.
