The ostrich is a bird that cannot fly; this is very symbolic and reminds us to stay grounded and not get lost in the upper spiritual realms. If people perceive you as flaky or flighty sometimes, then it is good to call upon the wisdom of the ostrich.
The ostrich can move incredibly fast and can even kill with its feet. The feet chakras must be opened fully in order to be grounded completely; this process can take many years of meditation to refine one's ability to ground in a super effective fashion. However, with even just 5 minutes a day of meditation you can see results.
This totem also asks you: are you afraid to fly to new heights? Are you moving forward and using your knowledge? The ostrich does not actually bury its head in the sand; it lowers its head as a protective gesture when threatened. Do you need to be more visible? Maybe less visible?
