Protection and Hexes

After recently moving into my newly built house I was able to borrow a lovely BMW 5 series to get me about. Funny thing was that the tyres kept blowing out during driving. On my way home once from dropping my children off at kindergarten I took a sharp bend, admittedly going faster than I should be but on a quiet country road, on a lovely summer day with a decent car CD player I was just enjoying the drive.
As I took the bend a front tyre blew and the car launched itself onto the other side of the road out of control - right in front of an oncoming lorry. All I could see before me was the front of the truck but somehow when I opened my eyes I was sitting in my car back on the right side of road in a small ditch and not another car in sight. I spent the next hour stranded, as it was only supposed to be a short drive I didn't bother taking my mobile phone and so couldn't even phone for help. I was panicked and suffering from shock and just in awe that, again, another tyre had blown on the car since I had borrowed it. As the car was at a strange angle I could not see a way to jack it up on my own and as my head was filled with confusion it didn't occur to me to move the car onto level ground.
I aimlessly spent an hour waving at the odd passer by, but nobody stopped (village life I guess!). So I ended up actually walking in the middle of the road until someone came along and flagged them down. The old gentleman kindly drove to my house and picked up my partner and brought him back to where I was with the car. A replacement tyre was fitted quickly and we drove home. I was still shaken up by the ordeal and couldn't get out of my head what could have happened or worst had I of had my children in the car at the time. Taking a bend, at speed or not, when a tyre blows on a sharp corner it is more than likely you will lose control, even for a couple of seconds.
So, I am home and decide to have a look at the tyre - looked actually like someone had sliced parts of it with a Stanley Knife. A nice clean sharp cut into the tyre but not enough for it to lose pressure ... just enough for it to blow under pressure, it was the same with the previous tyre that had blown too, although that was so badly damaged it was hard to prove anything.
As I went for a walk to clear my head I came across a lovely neighbour who said that her dog was barking about 2am which is very rare and asked if I was OK as I looked pale. When I explained what had happened she remarked that another neighbour in the close vicinity to our house has been accused of such things before. Now knowing that my partner and I had upset these particular neighbours by building on land they had hoped to claim for themselves it all started to make sense. Although, I had to be careful, my anger was rising and I had to go home to meditate to try and release some of the exploding emotion within me but however much I tried I could not block this particular neighbour out of my head.
I mean, it could just all be coincidence couldn't it? My car blows two tyres in less than a week from a strange looking puncture/slash, a neighbour is eaten up with hatred that I built on the land their family craved for and she has a criminal history of "playing" with car tyres, and of course the other neighbour's dog that never barks, barking its head off at 2am the night before. Was I just being paranoid? No, I didn't think so either, although I knew that hexing a person without concrete proof would have severe consequences on myself through my own guilt, no matter how upset or angry or justified I felt.
I decided to do something anyway, my emotion was too strong to let this slide. I went to my "special" hawthorn tree near where I lived and took a low level branch. I did initially intend to use Blackthorn but couldn't find a tree that felt right.
I plunged the Stang into my ground facing North and proceed...
