"The connection is a, well, believe it or not a telepathic one of sorts. I have dreams of conversations with him and when I started telling him what I dreamt he started telling me everything."
Ah, but even if he can read your thoughts, that doesn't necessarily mean all is well; he could be a telepath and still not be as trustworthy or noble a person as he seems. By no means do I mean to declare that the guy's no good; I'm just pointing out an assumption and a potential fallacy. Whatever his abilities are, it's how he uses them that counts.
I'll adhere to my same advice for now: Proceed if you so desire, but do so cautiously. If you're spiritually inclined, trust the promptings of your spirit. You have gifts of your own that will see you through whatever you need to experience.
Regards and well wishes,
