Ellie, thank you so much for sharing your perspective here. I’ve just gotten started on regular contemplative practices myself and have found something like the Jesus prayer or centering prayer or anything with a phrase/word I can focus on aligning my breathing with has been a helpful starting point to quieting unruly thoughts. I wonder if starting there before moving to a place of being completely still/silent would be helpful for you as well?
In any case, blessings and grace to you on this courageous journey!
