In the 1980s, as a founding member of the Southern Collective of African-American writers in Atlanta, Georgia authored his first book of poetry entitled '60 to '80:Songs for the Black Struggle, which was widely acclaimed and endorsed by a then AR Producer at Island Records. Throughout the 1908s and into the 1990s he wrote numerous articles, monogram series and journal articles related to his work with the International Academy of Ikologiks and Advanced Studies, Inc. and the Stress Aid Institute.
In 1999 at the turn of the millennium Omar published his first major book entitled Ultimate Mental Power. Subsequently, he has published Practicing the Iko-Meditation Technique, and the Yoga Therapy Handbook.
