Rey says to Kylo Ren, after healing him:

Rey: I did want to take your hand, Ben's Hand.

What does Rey mean by this statement?

    It's a call-back to an earlier scene; “No, I have other plans,” he said. “I offered you my hand once. You wanted to take it. Why didn’t you?”

She no longer sees him as Kylo Ren - the Leader of the First Order, enemy of the rebel alliance and the remains of the Jedi, she sees him as she wishes he was - Ben Solo, the son of Han and Leia, a friend and ally.

This indicates another waypoint in the profound shift in the relationship between the characters from enemies to allies, perhaps friends, maybe more. Certainly there was on Rey's part a desire to trust, a willingness to heal the breach between them.
