How do I make that shift in alignment on a more permanent level? Or do I know all this stuff already?
In order for things to fall apart, don't they have to come together sometimes? It's kind of the other side of the coin of me messing up my shoe closet so that I can organize it; you bring things together so that you can create them falling apart. Not consciously, of course, and that's not the only reason -- you're also a highly creative power who enjoys having things work well. But your background reality is: "Things fall apart," so it would be really weird if they didn't -- it would occur for you as being unreal if things didn't
One thing I think is really useful for shifting is bringing your personal creative power to your conscious awareness. Noticing, as I mentioned earlier, how you are at cause, by dint of both your conscious and unconscious choices, for the results you have right now. Because when you see your creation by light of day -- when you see it for what it really is, the culmination of your conscious and unconscious choices, what tends to show up is new choice, freedom, and opportunity.
Have you ever known a little kid who was afraid of monsters at night? There was a little boy who woke up in the dark in the middle of the night, and was terrified to see a horrible monster sitting in his chair across the room, howling! Ack! He screamed for his mother, and she came rushing in and turned on the light to see what was the matter. When he pointed to show his mom the monster, they both saw that what was really in the chair was his clothes from the day before, carelessly flung over the chair, and the wind blowing through the trees outside. He had a new way of seeing and hearing. If he squinted his eyes and pretended it was dark, he could associate back into the perspective that it was really a monster -- if he wanted to or if he forgot that he had a choice in the matter.
Later on that night, after the lights were out and mom had gone back to bed, stuff happened: the wind howled, or his brother tried to freak him out by telling him it really WAS a monster. And the boy now had a choice: he could shift his perspective and perhaps examine that evidence for truth, or he could just believe what his brother said or his old, outdated beliefs. A big brother's stories can be pretty convincing, and so can old outdated beliefs, so it took him some practice and a little bit of vigilance to notice when he was being hornswoggled by them, and to take on consciously being present to the opportunity to choose ways of looking that are empowering
