Most of the South-East Asian countries including Taiwan, Hong Kong and China do practices talking to Deity or God (Taoism) through the Medium. When ever there are important matters, serious illnesses or advice needed from the God they will invite a person to play a role as a medium. Not everybody can be a medium, only selected few. After a series of chanting prayers the medium will go into trance signifying the deity has entered the medium. For sick patient the medium will seek the advice of the deity to prescribe medication in the form of chinese herb with the talisman. If you are in Asian countries if you will noticed that many Chinese homes, at the main door they will stick a talisman in the center of their door that are provided by the medium.
