Spiritually an apology is an act of self-justification - an understanding of rightness - and it is this meaning that comes across first of all in dreams of such an act. To dream that we apologize to someone means we acknowledge a lack of integrity in ourselves. To receive an apology suggests a recognition of that same integrity. It is important that we feel good about ourselves and, as dreams are a way of righting an imbalance, we have a mechanism through apology to put right an act or deed, either our own or others?, which has upset us. If we dream about giving or receiving an apology we are aware of having offended our own personal code in everyday life and can work out what we need to do to restore the status quo.
