A ghost or spirit is merely you without a body, and when you die you simply become a spirit/ghost. Some people believe that you then reincarnate, or go to some sort of heaven or hell or whatever, that doesnt matter. What does matter is that a ghost and you are no different.
So, once you know that a ghost is just like you then you can see that negative spirits do exist. Hitler... Where is he? Assuming he didnt flee to south america then he is dead, and if he is dead then he is a spirit and no doubt he still hates jews so somewhere out there he has a negative spirit, probably still trying to do harm to jewish spirits and anyone he doesnt like. He isnt EVIL, there is no such thing, he is however negative.
Demons do not exist IMHO, there is no need for them, no place and to me the idea of demons/angels is the story of the human mind's need for a greater power.
Considering how he brought more harm to the Germanic people and their culture and heritage than even the Christian conversion, and that he was a sick and dishonoarable man that committed atrocious crimes against innocent people, I think the gods reserved a very special spot for him in Hvergelmir, a realm of Hel where the worst of men go. Since, according to the Lore, Baldr is safe from the destruction of the Universe because he resides in Hel's hall, then I can only assume that this means Hitler is safely (for us) shut away from this world as well and his spirit or 'energy' does not affect us, or our world in anyway.
I disagree that our bodies are not us. The way we look has influenced our experiences and opinions and relations with other people, which most definitely forms and shapes and becomes the 'ethereal' us.
Topic? You aren't born a witch but you can be born with an interest in the spiritual. Like how I'm passionate about religion while others in my family are passionate about the Lousiana wetlands.
