I suggest that you get ready for a great adventure with your friend. You now really do have "friends in High Places". This will be a good thing for the both of you as you can elevate your frequency with his help and he can gain further experience in being a guide and growing on his side. It is a definite win, win. The connection is already strong and will only grow stronger with both of you working on it. Learn to trust your intuition and ability to "feel" as an empath. It will never steer you wrong. Keep us informed on how this works out.
Throw some love into the wind.
