This is a metaphorical expression--a figurative expression that is not to be taken as literal truth--that means that Jess felt so close to Leslie, felt so much in tune with her, that it felt like they were completely united in heart and mind and that union allowed him to do more adventurous and more exciting and more magical things than he could on his own.
