1. Fill your background layer with black and make a new layer. Set your primary color to white, and your secondary color FULLY TRANSPARENT.
2. On this new layer, make a radial gradient with the colors you chose and align in to the center using align object.
3. Set your primary color to a different color, and make a layer UNDER the white circle you made. Make another bigger radial gradient and align it to the center.
4. Set your primary color to a darker color than your previous color, and do the same thing.
5. Merge all of your circle layers, and press CONTROL + A to select everything and switch the the tool and make it smaller, and a little longer. Mess around with different widths and lengths.
6. Align it to the center and run Distort > Sine Waves. Make the amplitude higher, but don't mess with anything else.
7. Run Distort > Twist. Make the size big, and don't twist it that much.
Repeat this process a bunch of times and you can get something like this:
Also, see if you can get something like this:
