I'm not sure if this fits the thread's description (name?) but there isn't really one that fits my problem.. It isn't very big but I hate traveling and my family planned a trip to go on a 7 hour trip to San Fran. without consulting with me first and I would really rather not go, but I don't want to have to just crash at a friend's place for a week because they are just locking up the house for good until they get back. Is there some spell that I could cast to get us to... not go....? Or for them to agree with me that it wouldn't be any fun (I know it would but I don't want to go). Thanks for checkin this out. Please respond with your ideas.
Wish spells. Or actually Consulting yourself on the matter you dislike traveling. Perhaps a meditation may do some good for this? Or Actually Talking to them about your dislike and what you would prefer to do.
Umm, off the top of my head, I would take an article of clothing they wouldn't miss (like a sock) and nail it down into the earth near the property for the duration you want them to stay.
Use copper nails not iron. That's important, iron nails are used to curse. Cover it with dirt so they won't find it. When you're done, wash the socks and put them back. Most socks won't show signs of any small holes from a few thin nails and if you use black or brown socks, they shouldn't be stained.
Ideally, they will gain the desire not to go as well, and feel a compulsion to stay. But that all depends on their will to go. If they are determined and go anyway, remove the nails immediately to prevent something bad from happen to them during their travels.
He asked for a spell, not advice, was truthful and direct. And the best part of all, he had the common sense to post in the right area of the forum! I'm sure no one here can say they haven't casted a spell that wasn't exactly necessary. Staying home isn't harmful, but travel can be dangerous. I see far worse requests here. It's refreshing to see an innocent one.
However, I would like to say, you may want to consider asking them if a family member or adult friend of the family could stay with you at the house as a compromise. A dark empty house, after all, is a target for robbery, so it would be in their best interest for someone to watch the house while they are gone. I was a teenager once, I know how to sway the minds of cautious parents ;-)
