I think this would work best if you would do some third eye related activities (you can find quite a few in "meditation" section) and ask your companions to join and aid you
At least that's what I'm trying to do.
The issue is how do you not get distracted? My head or mind feels like it 'must' find something that gives off feelings I like that I can indulge in when I wake up in the morning.
I've tried meditating though when sleepy and lying down, to enter a state where I felt like I was 'going to die' or something like that which might have scared me?
I'm not an expert on meditation, but I'm pretty skilled in relaxations. Most people pay attention to their breathing so they wouldn't get distracted (you can also focus on various sounds, objects, images, meditation/relaxation music and so on). Random thoughts will come and it's natural. You need to acknowledge that it's there and return your focus back to breathing (or something else of your choosing). More thoughts will come, you acknowledge it as well and then back to breathing once again. It's a repetitive process that gets easier in time
If you find that focusing on breathing or other things is too hard, you might benefit from guided meditations/relaxations (youtube has plenty). Visualizations calm you and your body and keeps your mind busy as well since you have to visualize places and things. These are good starting points if simple meditation doesn't work. It gets easier with practice and later on you might find that guided exercises are no longer needed and you can relax and meditate on your own.
If you feel like you're going to die when trying to relax I suggest you look into your protection. You should feel safe when meditating. If you have any beings in your keep, you can always ask them to help you relax and feel safe. Shielding before meditation is a must as well.
