Make a new layer with a white background. Go to Filter > Reander > Clouds, and then Filter > Render > Difference Clouds. Press "CTrl + F" several times to reapply the filter to get something like below.

Step 2.
Press Ctrl + I to invert colors. Raise the contrast and lower the brightness, by going to Image > Adjustments > Brightness/Contrast.
Step 3.
Pick the eraser tool, a size of around 150, and 0% hardness, Erase around the layer, as shown below.
Step 4.
Now go to Filter > Distort > Polar Coordinates, and check "Polar to Rectangle".
Step 5.
Flip the layer vertically ( Edit > Transform > Flip Vertical) . Go to Image > Adjustments > Hue/Saturation and check "colorize". Set the Values to something like Hue: 35, Saturation 95. Turn your background to black to show the effect off better.
Step 6.
