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.
