One way of achieving this is to create an animation of white circles growing from the center and disappearing once they reach the edge of the frame. Set that in 3d space to match the perspective of your character and apply Trapcode Shine setting the light source low (outside the frame). You can then animate the shimmer, ray length and intensity.

For the growing and fading circles you could use the 'Radio Waves' effect. Then put the plane in 3D and match the perspective like Ted says.

For the rays Trapcode Shine would indeed be the choice.
