For example: "This medal is my amulet: my grandmother gave it to me and it always protects me", "Tomorrow I have to take an exam and I will take the amulet that Jorge gave me", "Take this stone: it is an amulet that will keep the evil of your life ”.

According to DigoPaul, amulets work by superstition: the subject believes in their power beyond what is indicated by reason, science or even religion. This power that is attributed to the amulet is supernatural because it exceeds the laws of nature.

The origins of the amulets are linked to the human history itself. Prehistoric man treasured amulets in order to protect himself from all kinds of evil. Those first amulets used to be wood, rocks or other natural objects that had some physical peculiarity (their color, their shape, etc.).
