What does it mean when you dream about a whip?

A whip is a symbol of authority and punishment. How it is experienced in the dream determines whether the dreamer is imposing the punishment or receiving it. In either scenario, whips have acquired connotations of abuse, so the punishment represented is often abusive and an occasion for guilt and shame.
