Shaktipat is Yogic Initiation through means of Energy Transmission or gift. Sakti is Pure Energy or Power, unlimited potential. Sakti is a Super-Conscious Force, the very medium of all the Infinite Possibilities of Manifestation or Experience. When Sakti is Transferred or Awakened through Shaktipat, the Super Conscious Force of Sakti Herself (often personified as the Divine Mother) becomes a primary means and method of attaining the Supreme Form of Enlightenment.
Sakti as Kundalini (infinite potential with the image of a coiled spring ready to JUMP) arises through the Sushumna Nadi(Central Energy Channel) towards meeting Siva (Pure Consciousness Awareness), bringing all of our Infinite Power and Potential(Sakti) into the illumination of the Full Light of Consciousness (Siva) as Self/God-Realization...
Shaktipat Deeksha, and the post sadhana can indeed be a supreme means of attaining the Supreme Realization, as it says throughout the scriptures and upadesha (instructions) of the Awakened Ones, that the Supreme Awareness can only be Realized by the grace of That Supreme Reality itself, and not by one's efforts, or cognition. The reason for this is that all phenomena are seen like reflections in the Infinite Medium of - Siva and Sakti's ever ecstatic marriage and dance as Pure Omnipresent Consciousness (Param Atman- Supreme Self) and Omnipotent Power (Sakti) to experience Being, and therefore anything else is just "a part" or an effect of That Primordial Energy Dance appearing in That Infinite Field.
To Know the Infinity itself, the only means is by that Infinity, anything else is just a piece. In Shaktipat Traditions, your sadhana is to SURRENDER to Sakti to Allow Her to do all the effort's of sadhana for you, as the Super Intelligent Force of Shakti works to bring the Aspirant to Yoga, there is nothing that is overlooked, She- Shakti the Energy of all Manifestation knows exactly what Kriya's, Mantras, Asanas, Pranayama or other Practices will be of benefit to bringing you to the Experience of Yoga. These Kriya's and other practices take place automatically under the influence and guidance of Shakti Kundalini.
Actually all sadhanas are simply clearing away obstructions of Kleshas (agreements about reality, ideas of the world) so that relative reality is out of the way to reveal the Truth - Ultimate Reality... All Sadhana is just preparing for SURRENDER. In Shaktipat Yoga Traditions, there is no maintaining of the delusion of self effort (ego), there is the constant ideal of Surrender to the Reality of the ever Illumined Being of Siva and Sakti, leading to the Sure Realization of That!
