Rey, without a shadow of a doubt, is one of the most powerful users of the Force in all of Star Wars and it's amazing, not to mention extremely impressive how quickly she managed to master the art in just a short amount of time. In Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, for example, we were witnesses to how the anointed Skywalker, played by actress Daisy Ridley used her new set of Jedi powers which we never knew she had, including Force lightning and the ability to use Force healing which she performed on a giant Vexis serpent.

This may come as a shock to a lot of people, but apparently, that's not the only skill she has mastered over the course of the sequel trilogy. According to the latest Star Wars reference book published by Lucasfilm, the young Jedi, surprisingly enough also possesses a secret ability called psychometry. The said skill was first introduced in Star Wars: The Clone Wars and originally possessed by Jedi Master Quinlan Vos. As stated in the book, Rey has the innate ability to use psychometry. Read it below:


Some Force abilities require years of training, a form of instinctual aptitude, or a very strong connection to the Force to access. A small number of Force users, including Rey and Cal Kestis, have the rare ability of psychometry, which allows them to learn about people or events by touching an object associated with them.



How Rey was able to learn one skill after the other still remains a mystery up to this day, especially to the most casual of Star Wars fans but we can't deny that she's one of the best things, if not the best thing about Disney's sequel trilogy, even though some people would beg to differ. Of course, their disapproval of the character stems from how Lucasfilm has turned Rey into a Mary Sue kind of character instead of her being not as invincible as she was portrayed but hey, it is what it is and I personally think it didn't do Rey any harm. I genuinely enjoyed how she was presented from The Force Awakens, The Last Jedi, all the way to the Skywalker saga's grand finale. In fact, I'm actually looking forward to seeing her pop up once again in a future Star Wars project.
