Ah, sorry, I misunderstood you. In insight meditation, the kind I do, awareness of mental objects is a different thing. It's basically being aware of thoughts, emotions, things that happen in the mind.
I don't know about your definition, so I will let someone else try to help.
And just repeating, a live teacher is so important.
