Cheryl is interested in knowing if there are universal laws.

In your dimension there are laws due to the movement of cells in gravity and physical limitations of some things. Your world is linear and thus it must follow laws as you would call them, but in spirit there are no laws, there are no rules, there is only being. I am, you are, we are one. We vibrate at a certain rate that makes us separate, but our vibrational ability is one.

Can you speak to any strategies or any efforts we can make to lift our own vibrations higher?

Every being knows where their vibration is at. Even the very new, shiny ones that are like sprites, full of energy and often causing discord in every which way they may touch. But all beings know their vibrational rate and in that, they know what is right and what is wrong for their state of vibration.

So for every opportunity of choice, with your free will and understanding, take a moment (it can only take a fraction of your physical time). Take a moment and sense what is the right choice. Whether you follow it or not is up to you, but you will know what is the highest of your ability. Do not believe those that say they do not know it–they do.

And these are tools every being has with which to grow and to learn with?

Yes, that is true. No being is void of these, even those you would think have not the capacity, they do have it.
