Ostrich Totem

The ostrich is the largest bird in the bird kingdom. Because it cannot fly its lesson is the importance of grounding, teaching us not to be so "flighty" or "airy fairy." The ostrich teaches us that we can attain spiritual heights from a deeper rooted perspective. Gravity is the ostrich's strength, keeping it grounded. The ostrich as a totem symbolizes a strong desire to attain knowledge, this is apparent by the long neck that sticks upwards into the higher realm of learning. If the ostrich totem shows up it may be a message that you need to prepare to move up to the next level of life lessons.
