The way I would define spirit is that it is the manifestation of a willed concept.
For example, if you dwell on bad things, it will have a negative impact on you both mentally and physically; and the impact is the result of a
negative spirit - which is the result of having a negative will/disposition.
So, the mention of an evil/negative spirit would not imply reference to a being, but rather a reference to the will of a being which has manifested as
an evil/negative force.
Used expressively, an evil spirit would then signify that a being has created or possesses/has a destructive/non-beneficial will.
Or a good spirit is the manifestation/force of a good willed concept - which does good.
To understand it better, think of it like will, when combined with faith, manifests as spirit/force/motion/function/action.
This is why it is so important to be good - because whatever this realm is (Word/Jesus), it functions byway of will. It sounds crazy, I know, but that
is only because we have blinded ourselves by our lack of faith.
Oh and this plays into the topic because consciousness creates with will/spirit.
