The internet has many examples of Jewish amulets. I would like to know how, step by step, amulet is written. I understand there may be different formula for different amulets but I assume the general process is the same, with just the content changing. If this assumption is incorrect, please provide an example of how to write an amulet to aid with health.

    1 Write "pray for health and do Mitzvot and stop playing around with magic tricks" on a piece of paper. 2 Read it. 3 Roll it up and place it in the nearest trash can. (Substitute "health" for other things as needed.)

Rav Moshe Feinstein (Igros Moshe YD 2:141:3) discusses the possibility of using the parsha of Krias Shema used for the Mezuza as a protective amulet. This video shows how to write the parshiyos of a mezuza - not that Rav Moshe suggests you should do so, but that it would serve as an amulet.
