I'll do my best at interpreting your dream:
"I have no idea why I was on this elevator (in my dream), but it was made like a huge corporate lobby, lots of stainless steel - other elevator
doors, trash cans, trim on walls... and lots of lush green plants... but there was another room behind the main lobby and to the left. One big huge
elevator suite, I guess. Anyway, I was in the back room keeping to myself, since I had many floors to go down.
The lobby is symbolic for wanting to make something known.
Metal (stainless steel in this case) signifies strength and character. It may also symbolize the inhumane side of society.
Other elevator doors show more than one opportunity to make a choice which door you want to enter concerning something going on in your life. A door
of any type signifies new opportunities that are presented to you.
The lush green plants indicate fertility, spiritual development, potential , and growth. But seeing these plants inside suggests that your growth is
being hindered or slowed in some way. You are experiencing a lack of independence. Or, it could signify your desire to be closer to nature.
Being in the room to the left, and behind the main lobby tells me you are trying to stay "under the radar", or "unnoticed" by others. The room being
on the "left" indicates you have made a wrong decision about something in your life.
The fact that you are descending in the elevator suggests that you are being grounded or coming back down to reality. It also signifies setbacks and
"The elevator suite stopped and several men in dark suits got on - not men in black, exactly, but very impeccably dressed. As I halfway listened to
what the men were saying, I recognized one of the voices - it was John Fitzgerald Kennedy. He was the active president, and I wondered how he could be
president now when he died in Texas all those years ago. They were discussing something important, and I felt weird listening but I wanted to let them
know I was there in case they wanted to wait before going any further. Also I didn't want to hear something that could make me disappear, if you know
what I mean. I still didn't really understand what they were talking about, but I walked into the main room and cleared my throat, just saying hello
to everyone, and walked casually back into the smaller back room. They kept on discussing whatever they were talking about, but they kept their voices
much lower so I couldn't really make out individual words."
On one floor the evelator (your setbacks and misfortunes) stopped, and well-dressed men in dark suits stepped in. The suits indicate these men are
acknowledged and recognized for their abilities and skills. So, I'm thinking they represent someone who came into your life at this point that could
help you with these setbacks you were experiencing in real life.
To see the President symbolizes authority, power, and control. Your own personal views and opinions of the President and their actions will also play
strongly in the significance of him showing up in your dream.
You introduced yourself to these people that could help you, but then you walked back to the smaller back room. This tells me that while (walking) on
your life path, you chose to casually go back to the "smaller room". This sounds like maybe the "bigger room of possibilities" intimidated you for
some reason, so you chose the smaller room where you were more comfortable and unnoticed by others. ( Rooms represent an area inside ourselves.)
Think back to what was going on in your life during the time you had this dream. See if any of these symbols represent anything that was happening in
your life, or decision making at that time.
Hope this helped.
