I am no expert but I would start by rotating until you get air. It may even feel like a huge exaggeration of the motion. When I made the transition from drill to swim about 3 months ago I found it helped to really s-l-o-w d-o-w-n to the point where I felt foolish, but it helped the elements come together for me.
Don't give up. I've found time and again, that suddenly I become aware of something I hadn't seen. Sometimes it takes hours, sometimes it take months.
