Like this? This is another simple usage of a Inner Glow layer Style on a new rectangle with it's fill set to 0%.

I want the light to glow from the black strip, assume that black strip as opening.
Very easy.

Convert the black strip to white and place it on it's own layer. (Black does not glow that well)

Add an Inner and Outer Glow layer style, adjust to your liking.
