Meaning of Flagellation Dreams | Dream Interpretation

Dream interpretations were found from 1 different sources.


Some people are very strict with themselves, so they tend to dream of flagellation. This represents their reproaches against themselves. Through flogging you punish yourself for what your “internal judge” considers wrongdoing. Moreover, this mechanism also diverts attention from any other pain or uncertainty you may have. In short, the dream reveals that there is a negative aspect you should change in your life.

Whip

The symbolism of the whip is directly linked to that of the CLUB and the LASSO, linked to the concepts of domination and superiority. It expresses the idea of punishment, like the club and the mace, as well the power to dominate. Logically, whips are also related to the rituals of flagellation. In general, using a whip means that you should review your attitude toward others, because all signs point to you being somewhat tyrannical. So, if your romantic relationships are not in going well, you should reconsider your position. On the contrary, if you are the one who receives the punishment, it means that you feel humiliated.

Dream oracles say that he who dreams of using a whip on someone will soon have problems. However, if the dreamer is the recipient of the lashes, he will lend his services to someone.... The Big Dictionary of Dreams
