Use the shapes to train your ear first, then in time, your ear will take over and shapes will be forgotten.

Playing laterally, rather than vertically always helps too. It breaks you out of boxes.

So much truth here! I think this is the most important thing. Each scale is unique and conveys a different feeling.
