To dream of a whip represents the exercising of control or power. Showing someone or something “who’s the boss.” Keeping someone or something inline. Ensuring discipline and obedience.
To be hit by a whip may reflect your feelings about being controlled, an abusive situation, or being punished.
Example: A young girl dreamed of seeing a whip crack. In waking life she was a virgin and in love with young boy while being strict about not having sex with him.
