To dream of bowling represents the aspects within your life that you are hitting or missing, e.g. strikes, gutter balls, etc. If you dream of bowling a poor game, you may have remorse. If you are bowling strikes, then you are moving toward success in your life. This dream could also represent your exceptional abilities or wonderful performance.
To dream that you throw a gutter ball could indicate that you are trapped in a dead end aspect of your life. You need to adjust your current path.
Bowling and bowling alleys could indicate sexual triumph. The pin deck symbolizes the feminine reproductive aspects, as with any dark cave or container, and pins represent masculine tokens.
