Onec, Omnec
Omnec Onec is the name of a woman who claims to be an
extraterrestrial from Venus and is the subject of a book, From
Venus I Came, published by Wendelle Stevens, best known for
his promotion of the claims of Swiss contactee Billy Meiers in
North America. According to Onec’s account, she had lived for
210 years (Earth time) on Venus prior to taking on the form of
a seven-year-old Earth girl and came to Earth in 1955 in a
spaceship accompanied by her uncle.
Onec claims that she was born and raised in the Venusian
city of Teutonia (a city whose name reflects earlier Venus-Earth
contacts that included a trip to Venus by a German scientist).
From the Temple of History she learned of the long-term monitoring
of Earth by scientists from many planets and of the nature
of life on all of these planets. Earth, the youngest of the
planets in this solar system, is plagued by the imbalance caused
by its singular Moon, which works an alternating influence on
people as it moves through the heavens. The other planets are
organized into a Brotherhood of Planets and their monitoring
of Earth includes the era of Atlantis and Lemuria. The different
races of earth have ties to the inhabitants of the various planets.
According to Onec, a set of teachings called Om-Notia
Zedia, the laws of the Supreme Deity, exists on Venus. These
teachings start with the utterly transcendent Supreme Deity
from whom there issues an audible life stream of Spirit. This
life stream sustains the existence of all worlds and universes.
Human beings are Soul existing in the ocean of Spirit. Souls
have been placed in physical embodiment to awaken to their
true nature. The Soul may learn to exist apart from its physical
body and to travel in the planes of existence between the physical
world and God, beginning with the astral, causal, and mental
planes. Wendelle Stevens has noted the similarity of these
teachings with ECKANKAR.
Onec believed in reincarnation and karma and accepted
the idea of coming to Earth to balance her personal karma.
After landing, she said she was substituted for a seven-year-old
girl who had just been killed in an accident. She was raised in
Chattanooga, Tennessee, by the grandmother of Sheila, the
girl whom she had replaced. She grew up in what was to all outward
appearances a normal life, never speaking of Venus, and
endured the struggles that allowed her to deal with her own

karmic past. As a young adult, however, she began to manifest
her second mission, to offer humanity an increased awareness
of their relation to spirit. As an initial step, she wrote a book
published by Stevens in 1986. The account included a variety
of problems, including claims of significant habitation of all of
the planets of the solar system and assertions of conditions existing
on these planets that contradict the repeated observations
of various space probes. To defend the account, it had to
be assumed that the inhabitants resided on something other
than the physical plane of existence.
