I am an Aussie too and celebrating Samhain; the New Moon is also just under 5 days away so I am combining Dark Goddess work together with other Samhain practices.
My Mother passed on the 29th, aka tomorrow. My Mother and Grandmother both possessed the gift although neither of them followed the path.
Having said all that, what I would suggest Alina is that you follow your heart - do a little reading about the Samhain practices of others and then go with what feels right for you.
No one in the world can alter truth. All we can do is seek it and live it.
