Source: Google Books: Manthanabhairavatantram

Vyāpti (व्याप्ति) refers to the “pervasion”  (of energy), according to the Kubjikāmatatantra: the earliest popular and most authoritative Tantra of the Kubjikā cult.—[The teacher] consciously manipulates the energy that takes hold of his fettered disciple, bringing about in him this certifying sign (pratyaya) of its presence and realisation (pratyaya). [...] Outwardly, all that takes place is that, at the appropriate moment, the teacher looks intensely at his disciple. By the power of the teacher's gaze the disciple experiences the pervasion (vyāpti) of the energy of the Command and all the limbs of his body shake. This empowering gaze is, as we have seen, how the goddess transfers the Command [i.e., ājñā] to Bhairava.

But even without practice, in the [rare] case of an instantaneous immersion into That, one obtains the state of liberation-in-life through the process of the direct experience of [the Five Mystic States]: Bliss, Ascent, Trembling, Sleep, and ‘Whirling,’ which means Pervasion (vyāpti-rūpa)”.
