There are many techniques to practice meditation. One basic framework is concentration and investigation. I learned this technique at an ashram in India. First, we focus and calm the mind (concentration). Then, we use our concentrated mind to study something so we can understand it more clearly and deeply (investigation).
Meditation is a process that must be practiced. It can feel a little overwhelming getting started especially with all the advice on the topic that is available these days. Here is a little something to get you started.
