    People keep being all weird about Rey finding the force so quickly, "it must be a plot hole!." She seems to have had a very traumatic childhood. Is it not possible that she was actually being trained in the force from a very young age, maybe even at skywalker's academy, and when Kylo wrecks the place she is hidden, and has like Post Traumatic Stress Disorder or something.
    Then, in TFA, it sort of all starts coming back to her? Borne Style?

    She's probably been identified as Force Sensitive as a young child, began attending "Luke Skywalkers School For Gifted Younglings" (or suchlike), then Ben Solo went nuts/hormonal and started trashing small rooms etc. Fearing for his life and the lives of his padawans, Luke shut down his academy and distributed his surviving students around the galaxy. Rey, aged 5 is one of these and is sent to live on Jakku and is taken ito Unkars "care" for the next 14 years. Then meeting R2 for a final time, Luke "Force Mind Melds" a clever "Jedi Awakening App" into R2's head, along with a map section which leads to Luke final destination. With his trail covered, Luke vanishes off to "Craggy Island" ("Father Ted" reference ;) ) and learns to fish and stuff.

    I agree. I believe that she was indeed trained at a young age.
    But i believe after the collapse of Luke's new Jedi School, she was taken to Jakku and her mind was wiped.
    Sure she could have gone through a traumatic experience and forgotten some fragments, but its extremely unlikely she would forget her force abilities all together.
    This is why i think her mind was wiped, to protect her.
    As her adventure continues, she slowly realizes her abilities and powers. (e.g. after Finn, Han and Chewie meet up with Rey to rescue her, Finn asks Rey how she escaped, and Rey tells him she doesn't even know what happened, and he would never believe her. Signifying she didn't know the mind trick would even work, and she is just as surprised as Kylo is, when she realizes she is force sensitive)

    Thoughts?

    This is my leading theory right now, too. Her past is being hidden from us (and her) for a reason. The Force is awakening in her after a long sleep, not being born for the first time.
