If you dream about a game where you miss all the time then you may feel that you’re missing out on something that others around you have or falling short of a personal goal.
It’s possible you regret the things you’ve missed out on in your past too.
On the other hand, if you played a game where you were getting strikes or regularly hitting the pins, then you may be making positive steps towards having what you want in life.
Strikes at every bowl could represent your exceptional abilities at something and the high standards you set as a result.
If your ball ended up in the gutter, then you may feel like you’re stuck in a dead end job, relationship or situation and you need to find a way out or to adjust your path.
It also thought that bowling has sexual references given the parallels that can be drawn and the connotations it might conjure up.
Bowling could mean that you have a clear target you wish to hit in life. You are always sure what you are aiming for and you don’t deviate until you reach your goals or let anything distract you along the way.
Another interpretation is that you are trying to tackle many problems at once- perhaps too many. If you don’t get a strike, this could be your subconscious telling you that you need to tackle one at a time rather than taking too much on at once.
If you were bowling and the same pins remained standing- it’s possible you have certain issues in your life that you can’t change or solve. You simply need to learn to live with them, change your attitude towards them and make the best of life while they are around.
